Brexit : A christian perspective

On 23 June, the United Kingdom will hold a referendum on « Brexit ». The question for the electorate is: « Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union? ». Much of the British debate is focused on the economic costs and benefits to the UK of staying or leaving. While economics is important, our discussion will explore deeper issues of what this decision means for the UK, and for the rest of the EU.
