INTERVIEW WITH SUSAN EAGLE UNITED CHURCH MINISTER AND POLITICIAN
by Gerry McCarthy
I first heard United Church Minister and politician Susan Eagle speak at a “Faith and Public Life” Conference held at Queen’s University in Kingston almost two years ago.
Eagle was facilitating a session entitled “Poverty and Welfare.” My notes tell me the session addressed three questions: How do people of faith respond in order to take political action in the face of poverty amid plenty? How can these concerns be heard? And in dealing with social justice are they leaders or followers?
