The issue of how to apportion the financial cuts facing Stormont Ministers is the topic of the next lunchtime lecture at St Bartholomew’s Parish Church, Stranmillis.
The lecture, entitled ‘Kingdom and Cuts’ will be given by Brian Crowe, Political Adviser to the Minister for Employment and Learning and a non-stipendiary minister currently ministering at Christ Church Parish, Lisburn.
Subtitled ‘Can a Christian vision of the common good inform policy decisions in a time of cuts? ‘ the lecture will address the burning issue of how to apportion the financial cuts facing Stormont Ministers. While these could be decided upon using a range of different criteria, it is not necessarily easy for anyone to see how the standards and priorities of the Kingdom of God might throw light on this urgent political issue.
The lecture takes place at 1.10 pm on Tuesday January 18.
Everyone is welcome at this lecture, which will include a time for questions. Light refreshments will also be available.
