“Christian perspectives on Social Justice in a Global Community”

How our leadership affects those we never see…

The Christian church has a long and vivid tradition of social justice and care for the poor. The whole Bible shows us God's desire for systemic economic justice and personal compassion. Although this moral appeal stays unaffected, the world we live in keeps changing. Economy is operating on a global playing field. We live in a world of interconnectedness and complex systems going far beyond our own circles of control.
Is social justice with its Judeo Christian roots resistant to these changes in society? Are there Christian perspectives on social justice when it impacts beyond our community? How does this world of interconnectedness challenge our traditional views on development aid? How does it affect our view on authentic and moral leadership? Our study day aims at providing some philosophical, theological and ethical building blocks for a more astute response to the needs in our world.
