Roundup: Tutu wins Templeman, Christianity and politics, Grayling and God, Sabbath, common good
“The common good is the whole network of social conditions which enable humans and groups to flourish. All are responsible for all.”
Realistic ways that people can observe the Sabbath despite all of the distractions and interruptions families face on a day that’s supposed to be “holy time.”
With one bound we find ourselves in a world of caricature and stereotype, where the beliefs of others are ridiculed and lampooned. Where has humanist tolerance and empathy gone?
What the return of God to public life does offer, from a Christian point of view, is the opportunity to articulate a vision of the human being, the human good, and the common good that might, if it proves persuasive to those beyond the Christian borders, serve as a lodestar for our political navigation.
Desmond Tutu, a clarion voice from the pulpit during South Africans’ struggle against racial apartheid, has won the £1.1m Templeton prize for advancing the “spiritual liberation” of people around the world.
