Ethical Thinking

Mothers’ Union calls this Social Policy – but what is it?

We engage in Social Policy activities to try to achieve positive change and improvement in the lives of families in the UK and around the world. This is Christian social responsibility following the two fundamental issues in scripture of stewardship and caring for others which promote our ethical thinking.

We have a very strong grassroots membership and it is this which gives us great credibility with the UK National Government, so we are often invited to participate in consultations which affect marriage and family life. Members in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Eire are involved with their parliaments and assemblies too. Our Outreach work means our members have first-hand experience of families in many different circumstances and our opinion on what impact changes in legislation would have on their local communities is sought. We encourage as many branches and individuals as possible to participate in these responses. Members therefore have a positive impact for change for many people. Members are encouraged to meet with and write to their local MP about issues that Mothers’ Union is involved with. Find out who your MP is here; input your postcode to discover your MPs name and contact details.

Verse of the Day

“When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. ‘In Bethlehem in Judea,’ they replied, ‘for this is what the prophet has written: ‘“But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.”’” — Matthew 2:4-6 Listen to chapter Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 by Biblica.
