Publisher's description: 
Spirituality, Ethics and Care aims to provide guidance  on how to integrate spirituality and ethics in professional and voluntary care. The author  argues that the strong connections between moral meaning and spirituality are often not reflected  in the health and social care literature. Often spirituality is seen as religion and religion  is seen as independent of ethical decision-making, unless you happen to be working  with a patient or carer who wishes to assert their religious rights. In this book,  the author seeks to develop a broader view of spirituality and explore how this can be applied  to ethics and morals in health and social care practice.

Conference papers and Martyn Percy on Bishop Gene Robinson

At the heart of this issue of Modern Believing is three long papers given at the MCU Conference on Saving the Soul of Anglicanism.This took place a week before the Lambeth conference. The Conference attracted a very high level of support and was sold out months in advance. Further papers from this conference will be published in future issues since there was such a feast of historical information about Anglicanism given at that conference.

The Historic Anglican Recognition of 'Change and Alteration'

The first article in this issue sets out the 'Responses of the Modern Churchpeople's Union to the Idea of an Anglican Covenant'. We are most grateful to Jonathan Clatworthy and Paul Bagshaw for setting out so clearly the position of the MCU and of other liberal Anglicans and we also thank all those who contributed to the email discussion which led to these documents.  These responses have now been fed into the wider UK discussions about a Covenant prior to the decisions which will be made at the 2008 Lambeth Conference.  We record them here as a historical record of our position.
