Religion

The Covenant is not a contract in which God and human beings agree to provide particular goods and services for each other. It is not something that people have to do to create a relationship with God. God has already made it possible.

Politics

Some people think that involvement in political life is something Christians should avoid. But God is present everywhere, including political institutions.

Views

As human beings people find themselves as part of an unjust, sinful and violent world, which we may feel individually helpless to change. If we accept forgiveness, God can enable us to resist evil and to live life to the full.
