THE COMMON GOOD

Over the last year, we have seen some of the effects of people feeling that they have been left behind – we only need to think of Brexit or of the election of Donald Trump.  The idea of ‘The Common Good’ is one response to this, as a more Christian way, as opposed to the modern emphasis on individualism within the neo-liberal mindset.

There is no accepted definition of the term, but the common good necessitates action taken together to the end of seeing a common life in which all can flourish, and social conditions that make it possible for everyone to participate.

The recent series of ‘Space in the City’ consisted of four excellent talks about various aspects of the common good, and can be found on the website: www.spaceinthecity.org.uk

‘Together for the Common Good’ is a movement of people across different interests and traditions working to put relationships and the dignity of the person at the heart of cultural, economic and political life.  To find out more, visit www.togetherforthecommongood.co.uk

Meanwhile, Space in the City takes a different direction in January: on 17th, 24th and 31st we shall welcome as our speaker the recently arrived Dean of Winchester, the Very Revd Catherine Ogle.
