Join us for our first event in “The Justice Games” series… It’s All Relative
This is an action-packed afternoon of games & activities where we simulate a life auction, where all life’s basic needs are up for grabs!
This is how Susy Lee, creator of “The Justice Games”, and author of “Raising Kids Who Care” explains it: We’re going to think bigger when we think about how rich or poor we are…. and think about the difference this makes – to our lives,and to others!
A little bit of perspective can be a powerful attitude changer. With living in Australia as our norm, we can forget the enormous disparity in wealth across our world. Research shows that wealth inequality has a strong effect on social cohesion and we explore the effects of wealth and poverty. This event helps us think about our relative wealth and how we could be more generous to those who have much less.
For: Suitable for primary school aged children through to adults – all welcome
For more information & registrations: Register your interest here, or contact our Families’ Pastor, Kath Ruhle (3300 2712 or firstname.lastname@example.org) for further information.
About The Justice Games
The Justice Games, written by Susy Lee (author of Raising KIDS who CARE), seeks to encourage people to care more about other people and the world around them. It consists of themed events with group experiential learning, such as simulation games,and facilitated family/small group conversations.
The games are meaningful fun – aimed at giving participants, and particularly families, a shared language and experience that helps build healthy relationships and purpose. The activities are designed so that anyone, young or old, from the Church or our broader community, can participate.
The Justice Games models collaboration over competition, empowerment over judgementalism, and fun in learning: for a purpose. It aims to build resilience in young people by giving them a worldview that says they can respond to problems in the world, rather than being overwhelmed by them, and showing them that they have a part to play.
Each event is designed to last for 2 hours (meal included) and will have similar components: all-in games; input from contemporary research, psychology and Christian theology (based on the Bible); facilitated family/small group discussion time; and take-home activities or actions.
Susy Lee’s book Raising KIDS who CARE has won numerous awards, and been endorsed by the following:
Tim Costello“This is a brilliant book”
