In the next two weeks we are going to explore a biblical basis for valuing and caring for creation. In the first week we will consider the Old Testament; the second week will focus on the New Testament and our relationship with nature from a gospel perspective. Overall, we will see how the Bible provides a fresh approach to tackling a number of contemporary problems. We will also look at some practical issues in our own lives, and finally we shall explore the Christian message of hope. This is vital for us and also for many people in the wider community who have lost confidence in the future.

Sample readings from Guidelines - Justin Welby on Money and Economics (PDF Download)

Bible study for today's ministry and mission Justin Welby £0.00

Economics is a social study with attitude. It claims to be science but cannot repeat its experiments, and its great perturbations rely on intangibles, what the great economist John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) called 'animal spirits'. The economy is a human construction, yet it dominates its originators like Frankenstein's monster. It is occasionally manageable but never mastered. It depends on the vote of every citizen of every country, a vote exercised by every economic act, and yet often even the mass of votes seems to make no difference. The economy is as simple as the most basic rural community engaging in barter can make it, and yet similar basic principles apply to the most complex industrial or post-industrial societies. It has moods and mathematics, trends and surprises, those who think they lead it and those whom it consumes (often the same people). We are all part of it and yet we observe it.

The Bible and politics - download readings (PDF)
Thinking biblically about the exercise of power and authority in human communities is a major challenge for Christians. This week’s readings try to give a taster and overview of the biblical message by studying a few key classic passages from different acts of the biblical drama that relate to political power and authority.
