At the very foundation  of empire lies the insidious beast called debt...

Debt functions as the mechanism by which wealth and power is shifted from the poorest to the welathiest in the system. Debt and the interest it accrues puts the poorest into perpetual enslavement to the masters. This is something Jesus understood from the inside. His mission, as recounted by Luke, was to declare the "Year of the LORD'S Favour' - and ancient declaration of debt release. His ministry introduced an economy of the Kin-dom, abundance, sharing and table equality where debtros and tax collectors were welcome. This led to Fullness of Life for all.

But overthrowing the money tables would eventually get him killed...

In December, Global and Intercultural Ministries (Mission department), in association with Council for World Mission, hosts a conference of debt. You are invited to an evening with premier economist Ann Pettifor, CWM General Secretary Collin Cowan and Global Justice Now's Dorothy Guerrero.
