Members of the Council have consistently rated working together on public affairs as one of our most important tasks. Indeed, the proclamation of the redemptive Gospel story cannot leave one indifferent to government policies and the conduct of public affairs. Laws, policies and legislative initiatives embody important community decisions; public dialogues, respectful civil advocacy and debate strengthen social cohesion. The Government of Canada, through our representatives, significantly shapes the society and world we are called to serve. The call to work for justice is a central task of followers of Jesus and the church.
This compilation documents the 2008 Faith and the Public Square event organized for the Governing Board of The Canadian Council of Churches on the gospel imperative to advocacy at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Ottawa.
