Religion

The objective people wish to attain is not merely to be saved from something. God wishes his children to be saved to something.

Politics

The Church must be self-critical before it presumes to be critical of others.

Views

In a society where self-interest, acquisitiveness and individual happiness are often seen as the over-riding interests, the Church, and Christians within it, are called to witness meanings, values and purposes beyond ourselves.
