Ethical pensions – 14th February 2021

Is your pension building a better world?
There’s about £3 trillion invested in UK pensions. Some of that money is funding industries that cause harm to people and planet such as fossil fuels, tobacco and arms. Do you know what kind of world your pension is building?
As Christians we are called to: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind’ and ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’.
How do we love God and serve our neighbours through the way we steward our finances?
We can use the power in our pensions to encourage businesses to behave better, to create greener jobs and to shape a fairer, safer world for everyone.

Imagine if every Christian invested their pension ethically! What a difference that could make.
Pray: Lord, may the decisions we make with our pensions be rooted in love for you and for our neighbour. Help us discern the right path to take with the finances we steward. Amen.
