Justice and International Mission Convention

God's Economics - The Divine Economy?
Saturday 2 June, 9.00am
Centre for Theology and Ministry, 1 Morrison Close, Parkville

Economic considerations seem to dominate much of our society. Sometimes this may serve a greater good, ensuring efficient use of resources for meeting the needs of a greater number of people. However, too often the economic focus puts aside human needs and human dignity, encouraging greed and environmental destruction.

The convention will consider what the Christian faith has to say about economic systems we live with and what principles should guide a Christian view of the economy.

The Convention will also seek input from participants on Synod policy for the 2008 Synod.
