Matters in the Air: 22nd March 2017

These notes compiled by Rev Canon Peter Challen are posted at http://globaltable.org.uk/wp/, to contribute background information for the Global Table, which continues on Wednesdays from 12noon to 2 pm at the School of Economic Science, 11-13 Mandeville Place, W1U 3AJ – now hosted by the Open Research Group – meetings are open to all on a drop-in basis. This weekly forum is a persistent focal point for many who cannot often get to London but are encouraged in bold initiatives by association and collaboration. We all continue to foster the public sense of the search for inclusive justice. We are trying to sense the richness of our networking without overburdening with detail. We collaborate in order that action may flow BOTH in specified targeted initiatives AND in acknowledgement of our shared commitment to ending exploitation – usury – now exponentially rampant!

Having revisited those guiding thoughts over the last 12 weeks, Responses are sought about their use, or about any other enduring wisdom relating to collaboration. A response this week 4. “Have no blind respect for claims of authority; for there are other authorities around. Always audit for authenticity.”
