Online - Undoing Inequality Through Business
@
How business can make the world a fairer place?

In the Bible, ‘jubilee’ points us to the God-given practice of undoing inequality. For Old Testament Israel, it meant slaves were freed, prisoners were released, and debts were cancelled every seven years. People got a fresh start, and the society of God’s chosen people was realigned with the kingdom of heaven.

How can we model that vision in the 21st-Century UK and beyond? And in a global society that often seems dominated by market forces, what role can businesses play in creating a fairer world?

Online - Building on the Rock: Christians in Construction
@
Glorifying God on the building site

As Christians in construction, what does it mean for our work to be distinctive and transformative? How can we showcase Christ – in what we do and say at work, and in our work itself?

Construction work mirrors the character of the creator God. When we build, we’re imitating our loving heavenly Father – the one who laid the foundations of the Earth. And we can find fulfilment and joy in the knowledge that God cares deeply about what we’re doing.
