Religion

Through Jesus' death on the cross, and his resurrection, God has broken the power of all that is evil, in the world and in us.

Politics

God seeks to transform relationship with and between people. If politics is about how we choose to live together and to treat one another, there is surely a place for discerning the activity of God in politics.

Views

Just as a human body contains different limbs and organs that depend on each other, so members of a Christian society should be close and caring enough to feel each other's pain and delight.
