Some CEL members observe a rule of life. It is their covenant with the earth and with others to seek to live according to God’s design. Hear from members of various communities how a rule of life helps them ‘keep on keeping on’. There will also be opportunity to consider what form your own life might take, whether you are new to the idea of a rule or not, and how CEL can support you in fulfilling it. This may lead to CEL creating our own distinctive rule or ‘Way of Life’.

Ann Pettifor - Just Economics , the international economist, who predicted the financial meltdown of 2007, with others at the New Economics Foundation, in" Real World Economic Outlook" in 2003 and again in her own book "The Coming First World Debt Crisis" in 2006, is talking about Just Economic's at St Mark's Church, Broomhill on Saturday, 16 November from 10 am to 3:30 pm (cost £14 but students and unwaged £5). Many will remember her excellent talk at the Cathedral in 2009. In relation to the current financial crisis, Ann argues that the austerity measures are not needed, will not work and are undoubtedly unjust. She is saying that the economy must serve human need rather than human needs being sacrificed to a one eye and amoral view of economics. She shows convincingly how we can make the economic system work to serve the needs of our society and our world, including dealing with the pressing challenges of climate change.
