The World as Our Neighbor invites small Christian communities to focus their faith sharing on the needs of others and Catholic Social Teaching. Created as a collaborative venture between Catholic Relief Services and RENEW International, each session has been written by experts in the fields of Catholic Social Teaching as well as small community faith sharing.
Session Two is entitled, "Buying Wisely: Lessons in Fair Trade" and explores Catholic Church's teaching that the “constitutive purpose” of the economy is to serve the common good.
Each session guides the participants through a sharing of the Scriptures, not as a purely intellectual exercise but as a prayerful exploration of its meaning and its implications for daily life.
