In a recent meeting of my Sunday night Christian community, "oasis," we discussed "Social Justice and Compassion" (one of the "six traditions of Christian faith and witness" as spelled out in our study from Renovare).
My personal exercise was to come up with what I felt were the top 10 issues in this election year.
I have been slowly but surely building a list over the past year, and the issues have naturally surfaced as I have read and prayed through this.
Here is my Top 10 - in alphabetical order:
Bioethics, Abortion, and the Sanctity of Life
Creation and the Environment
Hunger and Health
Marriage and Homosexuality
Poverty, Wealth and Economics
War, Peace, and Terrorism
For in-depth information and analysis of these issues, go to
Please let me know what your Top 10 are, so that I may re-evaluate my list in light of your comments!
