Credit Crunch: Curse or Blessing?

Centre for Contemporary Christianity in Ireland logo

Crookedshore has some information on his blog about tonight’s Catherwood Lecture on Credit Crunch: Curse or Blessing? to be delivered by Elaine Storkey in Union College (at the back of Queen’s). It’s being run by the Centre for Contemporary Christianity in Ireland in partnership with Tear Fund.

The lecture blurb explains ...

“With all the doom and gloom around global recession, where is the good news? In recent years CCCI has been involved in reflecting how our faith engages with and affects society as a whole. We are called to courageous investment in our society and this must have economic implications. As we struggle with rising fuel prices and falling house prices, the developing world struggles with soaring food prices. What difference does faith make to our economic decisions?”

Crookedshore adds ...

“The lecture is free and will be held at the Chapel in Union Theological College, Belfast beginning at 8pm. A large crowd is expected, if advance requests for info are to be believed so best get there reasonably early.”
