Further down this blog you will find some of our principles and ideas to renew and change the Christian Socialist Movement. However we do not have all the answers - and this is just the start of a process of renewal and change for CSM.
So we are starting a consultation on how to make 2007 a Year of Renewal and Change for CSM. If you have ideas about how you would like to renew and change CSM, please leave them as comments on this blog post or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to CSM Renewal 2007
Welcome to CSM Renewal 2007. This blog is for members of the Christian Socialist Movement who are interested in renewing and changing CSM. In Proverbs it says: "Where there is no vision the people perish" (Prov 29:18). We fear that CSM is perishing from lack of vision, and we need to renew CSM: - Prayerfully restore CSM’s values and objects to the heart of everything it does; - Actively be the prophetic conscience of the Labour Party and a prophetic voice to the churches; - Boldly take a stand against the religious right and campaign to make poverty, social justice and the environment mainstream Christian issues; - Sustainably ensure CSM’s financial security without accepting sponsorship from organisations that compromise our values; - Immediately make CSM fit for purpose and the organisation more democratic, accountable and Christian. Find out more about our new vision for CSM below, and if you like it sign up to CSM Renewal 2007.
