Interfaith group to share thoughts on a moral economy
MIDDLEBURY — Vermont Interfaith Action will host a statewide series of discussions titled “Building Vermont’s Moral Economy.” Public Assets Institute will co-sponsor the series and provide a presentation at each event. One of those discussions will be held in Middlebury on Friday, Sept. 25, from 8-9:30 am. at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 3 Main St.
The Clergy Caucus of Vermont Interfaith Action has resolved to speak out on the issues that come before the Legislature, the judiciary system, and the executive branch of government by viewing these issues through the lens of a “moral economy.” Members arrived at a consensus of what constitutes a moral economy by holding up the teachings and traditions of their multiple faiths, which provide tenets on which they can all agree. They are in agreement that the current economy does not mirror these tenets, and is in fact rapidly moving away from the vision of a just economy that respects the dignity of every human being.
Each session will include refreshments, a presentation, activities and conversation. Events are free and open to the public. People of faith, legislators and clergy have been especially invited to attend.
