Invitation to Bloggers
Nov 17, 2008 by Dieumeme Noelliste | 0 Comments
The mission of the Vernon Grounds Institute of Public Ethics is to empower Christians to play the critically important role of salt and light in the public domain in keeping with the mandate issued by our Lord. To fulfill this task it has opted for a many pronged approach to ethical education and social awareness. Its method includes lectures, seminars, rallies, informal discussions in printed matters and blogging.
This article concerns the last mentioned avenue of ethical discourse--blogging. Its point however is not the enunciation of an ethical viewpoint. Not this time. Rather, its purpose is to extend a warm invitation to those who have an interest in a conversation on ethical matters to join in.
Here are some indicators to keep in mind as you consider joining the discussion. First, our interest is broad. Hence, we welcome reflection on any issue of any ethical sort that has a bearing on our common life. Second, in keeping with our assumption and indeed, conviction, that Christian faith, when rightly understood and applied is an asset to the enhancement of life--both personal and corporate-- we are particularly interested in view points that are informed by Scriptural teaching and principles. Third, it goes without saying, that all views expressed on the VGI blog are those of their authors, not necessarily of the Institute's.
