For a Christian, an economic system is a means to an end - a mechanism for exchanging goods and services...nothing more.
We steer our lives by a higher value - the love ethic of Jesus. Central to our bearing the cross is our acceptance of Jesus' love and our attentiveness to the needs of others...
Compassion will be our guiding light, our rule in life. Justice will lead us to faithful stewardship - to care for an work on behalf of others in the global community.
Shalom will be our reward.
