Advocacy for economic justice: Toward an ecumenical ministry of presence

CC Le Bruyns

Abstract


The mode of advocacy serves as a new, meaningful and propitious mode of engagement confronting the ecumenical and civil society movements in working for a ministry of presence that contributes to the ideals of economic justice and transformation. This article explores the theological foundations that could potentially provide the resources necessary for the churches in this regard, drawing on the insights by Paul Tillich, H Richard Niebuhr, and José Comblin.
