Anglican Social Ethics and the Search for Justice

Thursday, August 13

3pm EDT

The challenges of our contemporary moment can at times appear unprecedented and overwhelming. For many Christians, the presence and perniciousness of the structures of injustice in our society have become even more apparent. At the same time, determining how the church should engage to challenge injustices appears more complicated. In this panel, Episcopalian ethicists will explore how the various resources of the Anglican Social Ethics tradition to address these challenges.

How does the Anglican understanding of insights drawn from culture inform our quest for Biblical justice?

What is the significance of Christ's Incarnation in the Church's work for justice?

What are the resources offered by a world-wide communion in addressing specific instances of injustice in particular locations?

What is the significance of liturgy, prayer and the sacraments in Anglican Social Ethics?
