WE CONTINUE REFLECTING on the value of these three perspectives in our quest for inclusive justice. Inevitably there is overlap between each mode of approach. Each and all add richness to our searching:
- The Christian Council for Monetary Justice [CCMJ] – examining enduring wisdom and contemporary evidence about money and its effect on society – utilising resources of the enduring wisdom like current evidence, scriptures, histories, valued publications http://www.ccmj.org
- London Global Open Table [LGOT] – providing an open forum for serving a wider network with a point of weekly reference. All are welcome to send items for ‘Matters in the Air’ to indicate where our dialogue and action might take in this particular week: http://www.globaltable.org.uk/wp
- Trustees All: The Independent Constitutionalists UK – advocate and advance a targeted initiative by ‘principled pragmatism’ to take viable, if difficult, steps towards weaving politics and economics – governance and vital trading – into a People’s Political-Economy of Trusteeship in Harmony with Nature. Travel the new path via the 2020 [or earlier] General Election. The ICUK’s Manifesto and Charter provide an incremental, imperfect process of evolving a People’s Political-Economy of Trusteeship in Natrual Harmony : http://ww.constitutionalists.uk
Reality is Natural Inclusiveness – is there not resonance there ‘with the panentheistic love of God’ so strongly affirmed by all the major faith traditions? – in all bit parts, ubiquitous energy, creative dialogue suffuses the cosmos. Some nutshell it so simply in ‘Love both God and every Neighbour.’ It’s not as simple as that sounds, so a big question hangs over us in that tough and honorable pursuit. Do you stone the devil while on retreat, or love your enemies on every street, the one too easy, the other so, so hard?
