How do we as Christians respond to the challenges of our economic situation? What does it mean to have a biblical understanding of the economic and social issues that face us? This is the challenge our our current economic recession where there is much discussion about economic wellbeing and the importance of social and economic justice. This day conference, the first in a series, explores a theology of the land and the importance of the biblical theme of covenant.
In this first of three interrogations we will explore the terms of the economic covenant with God that would create the Good life on Earth. We remember that the Judeo-Christian covenant gave rise to the three Abrahamic religions. The speakers will explore the relevance of a theology of covenant in today’s contemporary economic and spiritual context.
Planned speakers include Alastar McIntosh (Author of ‘Soil and Soul’), Canon Peter Challen (Christian Council for Monetary Justice) and Fred Harrison (Author of the Traumatised Society).
This event is being held as partnership between the Moot Community at the Guild Church of St Mary Aldermary, the Christian Council for Monetary Justice and the Land Research Trust.
The aim of the day conferences is to inspire and enable participants to understand and affirm the need for united action concerning social, economic justice and structural change.
