Calling People of Goodwill: The Bible and the Common Good

We are living in turbulent times with religious, political and social divisions challenging our identity and common life. So what kinds of conversation and encounter will help us move forward? The common good is a means to seek the welfare of all people and this new Booklet from Bible Society in collaboration with Together for the Common Good, explores how Christians of all traditions, can build the common good – both now, and for future generations.

Looking at what the Bible can show us about the common good, we have chosen six short passages from the Old and New Testaments which prompt reflection, discussion, prayer and action.

It isn’t easy to respond to God’s call to live for the common good. It requires us to be people with the courage to stay in the room, negotiate and keep dialogue going by recognising the humanity of everyone, including those with whom we disagree. This is a Booklet for our times.

Lent Material – Seeking the Common Good

I wonder if you could circulate this around the SR network, please. The Worcester Diocesan Lent Course Seeking the Common Good is now available on our website, if anyone is interested, or receives queries from people asking for study material which relates to election or good society / common good themes in advance of the election.
