In anticipation of the UK General Election the House of Bishops has published an open letter about politics today and political engagement. In the introduction, the Bishops say:
How should Christian men and women approach the General Election to be held on 7 May 2015? This letter from the Church of England’s House of Bishops is addressed to all members of the church. And, as the Church of England strives to be a church which seeks the good of all the people of the country, we hope that others, who may not profess church allegiance, will nevertheless join in the conversation and engage with the ideas we are sharing here.
This letter is not a shopping list of policies we would like to see. It is a call for the new direction that we believe our political life ought to take.
