Pandemic response: the limits of the state, social conscience and love for neighbour

By JubileeCentre 12 May 2020

This week the Jubilee Centre team unpacks George Monbiot’s article ‘The horror films got it wrong. This virus has turned us into caring neighbours’. It’s a discussion that explores the limits of the state and the good instinct towards neighbourly action. As ever, we ask, how can we think biblically about these issues? And, specifically, what insight can we gain from a biblical view of human nature?
