Grace, Hope and Love
As Lent approaches, it’s time for an examination of conscience. How should the churches respond to the great political upheaval? Our tradition calls us to represent grace, hope and love, to take human beings seriously. There is a need for a distinctive vision about our relationship to place, and our mutual obligations to each other. But are we willing to live a common life with people whose views and backgrounds differ from our own? It’s time to restore social solidarity and generate a narrative of national community. As you’ll see below, our next public conversation on 14 March will address these very questions.
In this edition we’re excited to tell you more about our Common Good Training resource, designed to help build the capacity of people across the churches to strengthen community and civil society – you can find out how to host a workshop via the link below. You’ll also find a blog by Grace Davie on how cathedrals can serve the Common Good through ‘vicarious religion’, and another by Miriam Brittenden on the importance of the family.
