V. What can we do? Possibilities for action by Christians

In posing possibilities for actions by churches and Christians, Chapter V identifies the distinctive contribution to be made at the level of faith and spirituality. Although recognition is given to addressing issues internationally, the primary importance of local and national actions is emphasized. Suggestions are given in seven areas for actions by individuals or family groups, particularly those with adequate income. Possibilities for Christian communities and congregations in worship education, participation in "civic society", and influencing international policy are presented. At the same time, churches are challenged to examine their own institutional economic responsibilities. The role of churches in building public awareness, affecting public policy through advocacy and undertaking action with international organizations and networks is also presented.
