DEBT RELIEF ... GOD'S WAY

leaders of what are called the world's richest nations, the G8, are meeting July 6-8 to consider global issues such as debt relief. They are gathering not in a city, but in the seclusion of the Gleneagles conference center in Scotland, surrounded by vast stretches of moor and hill.

Delegates will have been encouraged by signs that people of compassion around the world are investing as never before in ideas that help toward self-sufficienty. For example, there are programs based on microlending, which enable a woman in, say, Bangladesh to buy a cellphone and then repay the debt after charging the local villagers to use her phone. The empowerment of women is in itself a significant part of enriching lives.
