The USPG Lent course for 2018 looks at how Anglican Churches around the world are supporting global development.
Entitled All Things Are Possible, the course has a focus on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which replaced the Millennium Development Goals.
USPG and our global church partners are giving our full support to the SDGs.
In particular, we have been inspired by the growing understanding among governments, the UN and other actors that faith-based organisations have a key role to play in global development – something we have known for years!
According to UN Development Programme Administrator Helen Clark: ‘Faith-based organisations… have an important role to play in reminding
us to focus on what really matters to us as human beings in search of well-being.’
With this in mind, our five-week study course for Lent attempts to make clear the links between our faith and global development.
We want to suggest that it is only in God that there is any real hope for lasting change.
