6th Triennial Micah Global Consultation
Lima, Peru, 14 to 18 September 2015

Call for Articles and Submissions

As a network and movement, Micah endorses, facilitates and promotes the outworking of integral mission in culturally and geographically diverse contexts.

The overall theme for our 6th Global Consultation is:

Integral Mission and Shalom: justice, peace and joy

We invite you to submit material on this theme, specifically on:

What does it look like to seek Shalom through the practice of integral mission in your context?

We welcome a wide range of material capturing theological reflection, principles and processes of application and good practice, case studies, research and outcomes.  We encourage integration of theology and practice.

We hope that submissions will address integral practice in one or more of the following topics: 

• Shalom as non-violence
• Shalom as healing of body, mind and spirit
• Shalom as reconciliation
• Shalom as inclusion
• Shalom as building community
• Shalom as advocacy
• Shalom as tikkun olam: repairing the world
• Shalom as wholeness
• Shalom as art, music, dance, celebration

However this is not meant to limit the scope of the discussion. Authors are welcome to submit material on other themes.

Details:

We are inviting submissions of three types:

• Papers
• Stories
• Posters

An editorial team will work to publish the best submissions in a Consultation book . All submissions will be made available on the Consultation website.
