Call for a New Social Covenant from Jim Wallis, A

A call for a new social covenant from Jim Wallis: “While the social covenant call acknowledges the great diversity of global values, it puts forward three values that express a consensus across cultures and religions. They are:
1) the dignity of the human person,
2) the importance of the common good, which transcends individual interests, and
3) the need for stewardship of the planet and posterity.

We urgently need a new social covenant between citizens, businesses, and government. Contracts have been broken, but a covenant adds a moral dimension to the solution that is now essential. By definition, this will require the engagement and collaboration of all the “stakeholders” — governments, businesses, civil society groups, people of faith, and especially young people.” Click on the link to print copies for Sunday morning – for all – discussion groups. http://sojo.net/blogs/2013/01/24/call-new-social-covenant
