IPJC Justice Cafés
Community + Justice + Spirituality + Young Adults
We just had our Justice Cafe in NJ on Reconciliation and Forgiveness. Our intimate group for 4 gave us plenty of time to dive deeply into some tough issues. We felt that personally and societally, if we learned patience, how to let go of anger, and act in humility, realizing we are not always right, the world would be a better place.
Clearly, none of things are easy, but since each one of us could recall many times where we needed to express forgiveness, these elements are crucial in life. Compassion is key in forgiveness.
We are looking forward to our next Cafe on October 19th!

Last night we held our first Justice Cafe at Gonzaga University. We had a great discussion that weaved the theme of Reconciliation and Forgiveness with Social Justice and Spirituality. We discussed the importance of achieving both reconciliation and forgiveness; one without the other is not enough. We also shared personal moments of when we needed to be forgiven as well as to forgive.
It was a very dynamic discussion, and of course, the pizza made it even better! Our group is already excited for next month!
Greetings from Oakland, CA! Sounds like great discussions about a challenging issue! I believe we generate a great deal of positive energy and create openings for peace when we are willing to forgive others! Experiences of forgiveness and reconciliation are graced moments!
P.S. I'm glad to know the ZAGS have a Justice Cafe in Spokane! Blessings of Peace to all in the Justice Cafe network!
At Holy Names University, we had our first Justice Café of the school year on Wednesday, September 21, 2011! Returners and new students were enthusiastic to meet over a cup of coffee to discuss the topic of reconciliation and forgiveness. During the ice breaker, some of the students shared personal stories of broken relationships and the challenges they faced in overcoming these experiences. Our group was largely impacted by the reconciliation and forgiveness stories of the Café’s booklet. They were welcomed as inspiring accounts to follow in our own everyday lives.
Students are looking forward to meet for October’s Justice Café on Food Justice!
