Christian Leadership for the Common Good
- Course Dates: Wed 15 January 2020, 11:00 am to Thu 16 January 2020, 4:00 pm
In a Divided Society, how can churches act for the common good?
Here : Now: Us Churches are present in every community in the country. How can church leaders and people develop their capacity to address social divisions and strengthen civil society?
This workshop has been developed by Together for the Common Good to enable church leaders to focus on exactly these challenges, in engagement with one another.
The workshop explores what ‘the common good’ means in principle and practice. It draws deeply on Scripture and theology, while also paying attention to the practical roles churches can play in local communities alongside other bodies. It focuses on how churches can help to foster and strengthen relationships across social divides.
In short, the workshop aims to enhance and refresh your ministry by enabling common good thinking and practice.
Here: because we are all rooted in particular places
Now: because we are at a critical time in the history of our country and the churches can have a vital role in addressing the challenges
Us: because we, as Christians of different traditions, are called to fulfil our particular vocational responsibilities, working together
