Forum 7.3 - Reflections on the World Community & the Millennium Development Goals
There are many commonalities I see, and they are based on the core of the Social Principles: respect for all people and Gods creation. Jesus offered endless grace, especially to those deemed unworthy by the religious leaders of his society. He advocated diplomacy and nonviolence and offered multiple examples of ways to love our "enemies." Jesus also showed respect for the natural world and rejoiced in the beauty of Gods creation.
If we refuse to see the interconnectedness in the world, we close the door on potential opportunities to share God's love and Jesus' message of peace.
I like this "core" that you've determined: respect for all people & God's creation. It's very closely tied to love of God & neighbor.
