Globalising God - the new internationalism
Conference held Tuesday 15th-Friday 18th July 2003 at High Leigh Conference Centre.
Chair: Canon John Atherton
Secretary: Dr Simon Taylor
Chaplain: Revd Robin Dodge
What is the Good News for a world in the throes of globalisation? Where is God in a world of poverty, terrorism and consumerism?
In the twenty-first century have we finally become one world, or are the divisions and inequalities greater than ever?
There are many challenges facing our world, and this conference aimed to bring them into contact with resources from Christianity and other faiths as we seek to live in a world where greater unity seems to come only at the cost of greater division.
