A winter programme introducing Christians to the Political Process
14 August 2010
Our Inverness winter programme of talks with discussion will be on the 4th Friday of each month of August, September, October and November 2010, D.V.
Venue: Christian Youth Centre (former YMCA)
12 Bank Street, Inverness IV1 1QY
First date: 27/8/2010 at 7.30 p.m.
This monthly programme replaces our regular monthly Monday evening meeting.
The purpose of the winter programme is
- 1. to teach the political process
- 2. to show why Christians need a party and a party structure to use the political process
- 3. to keep abreast of current events
- 4. to promote discussion
- 5. to maintain awareness of the Scottish Christian Party and the Christian Voice in politics.
This is the church engaging with our society at the governmental or political level, as Paul was expected to do Act 9:15.
The format is:
1. short presentation
2. open discussion
Christians are being pushed around. Don’t just take our word for it. Visit the Christian Institute website for examples.
• Instead of being pushed around by unchristian laws, Christians need to change the law.
• The only legitimate way to change the law is by the political process.
• Just as the major parties have adopted green issues, so we need a Christian Party to encourage them to re-adopt Christian values.
Can it be done? See FAQ.
• How will YOU get Christian policies into national politics?
• The Scottish Christian Party has a way – to elect Christian politicians.
Many Christians think it is too complicated to get involved, so why not join the Scottish Christian Party to learn how to get involved?
One big Highlands push will give you a distinctly Christian Voice in the Scottish Parliament.
Scottish Christian Party views on:
- better co-operation between managers and clinical staff
- programmes to enjoy learning, how to train memory and identify individual life skills,
- withdrawal from the European Union to preserve our Christian constitution and heritage.
- Global warming
- God-made to knock some international heads together, and man-made.
- Conscientious finances
- balancing the books by small government, flatten the tax rates, and reduce the welfare and benefits bills.
- welcome the persecuted stranger, balanced and reciprocal international skilled worker agreements, encourage training with temporary visas, co-ordinated with foreign policy.
