Core Values

by Richard on September 21, 2004

Via my friend Bene Diction comes this link to eight fundamental social values suggested by Evangelical Alliance of Australia:

  • Grace – a subversive value! Giving people more than they deserve.
  • Hope – not a guarantee of immunity from harm but a conviction that God is always present
  • Faith - the means to real depth in relationships of all kinds
  • Love – means to love the unlovely
  • Justice – for all (not ‘just-me’). A concept biased in favour of the disadvantaged.
  • Joy – impossible to legislate for this but an essential social value
  • Service – meaning is found in service rather than self-centredness
  • Peace– not just the absence of fighting but positive well-being

The whole article is well-worth a read.
