Glenn King has sent the following information through the cohort email listserv, but I thought it could be helpful to post it on the blog as well. All the links are to google documents.
I took the initiative to give a presentation on the subject of socialism
particularly in its relationship to Christianity for the meeting of May
17. I would like to share some articles written both by myself and others
which can give to members some basic insights on both the diversity of
socialist ideas and history.
What I want primarily to do at the presentation is to lead a discussion
regarding the relationship of Socialism and Christianity. As part of
that discussion I am prepared to discuss aspects of the history and
ideas of socialism as needed. However I think that if persons do decide
to read these articles they will find them of interest and hopefully will
understand much better my own views on socialism. Feel free to respond
to these articles prior to the meeting. What I hope to do is to put
socialism on the map as at least a concept to be considered by Columbus
members of the emerging church movement. I hope the meeting on May 17 can
be the opening of a dialogue and not just the beginning and the end of
Article #1: What Socialism is Not
Article #2: An Alternative Socialism
Article #3: Themes of Freedom, Power & Community
Article #4: Capitalism, Cooperativism, and Values
Article #5: Thoughts on the Kingdom of God
