What social changes or current events do you believe offer us the greatest opportunity to realize God's Reign on earth?

What can the Church do to encourage the change for the better?


The environmental movement because of its emphasis on our connection to all nature (humans are part of nature too).

Civil rights because we are called to love each other.

Globalization because we are really one community.

Each of these changes will require change in action and thinking.  The Church can help by pointing out the "spiritual" benefit and encourage people through the transition.

God's reign on Earth will be brought about by a significant rise in our spiritual consciousness, and not be cleaning up the highways and forests.


 


The Church is mostly irrelevant to the issue because they are still caught up in outdated issues such as sacrifice and sin, whereas Jesus preached love and forgiveness.
