Description

As Christians we are commanded to love our neighbours. One way we can love our neighbours is by working to ensure that all people, being made in the image of God, be treated with justice, respect, and mercy in the public arena. Our speaker proposes several characteristics and virtues we ought to exhibit when seeking the "welfare of the city" (Jeremiah 29:6-7).  He concludes by suggesting we need to develop an "Augustinian sensibility" if we are rightly to discern what we as Christians should aspire to do in our private and public witness.
