Human Rights Needs the Churches: The Gospel Needs Human Rights

During the current global "economic meltdown," what is the role of today's churches and other faith organizations in establishing an effective global economic order? And how do the United Nations and the issues of human rights connect to the process? Those critical issues were explored by British author Canon John S. Nurser, whose career has focused on human rights issues internationally, with an address for the O. Frederick Nolde Ecumenical Lectureship and Seminar on Human Rights. Nurser's remarks are entitled "Human Rights Needs the Churches: The Gospel Needs Human Rights."

The Nolde Lectureship and Seminar honors the work of the late LTSP professor O. Frederick Nolde. Read more at
