The gap between the haves and the have-nots is widening at a frightful pace. What are people of faith to do? Bishop Julio Murray says we must begin with human equality and ask questions about class, mission, and sufficiency.
As people of faith, how do we take on the pervasive, overwhelming issue of economic inequality? Where do we begin the discussion of such a complex and influential subject?
In January, 2015 Trinity Institute hosted a conference called ‘Creating Common Good,’ in which thinkers from a wide range of perspectives and real-world experience offered practical tools to help individuals and congregations address this pressing subject. This is one of four courses to hep lay the groundwork for our discussions.
In this first class, Bishop Julio Murray of Panama, who oversees a diocese with immense income inequality, says progress begins by taking our common humanity seriously. Here are the titles of his four lectures:
- Inequality and Injustice
This course is ideal for those seeking to develop a Christian response to increasing economic inequalities.
