Space in the City - 'The Common Good' 11th October - 8th November, 12.30 pm at The United Church & St Peter's Pastoral Centre
The term ‘The Common Good’ is heard frequently in a variety of contexts, including the political platform and the pulpit. But what does it mean? More importantly, does it have anything useful to say to us today?
We have invited the speakers in this series to explore how, in an increasingly fragmented, unequal and divided society, the Common Good offers a way forward in which everyone can play a role.
The Common Good approach is inclusive and human, it transcends tribal lines, and it encourages everyone to take their share of responsibility, from the grassroots to the boardroom.
Join us as we explore and re-imagine The Common Good:
