The Church of England and synagogues have launched projects to help indebted community members.
One such example is a "credit crunch network" of lawyers and employment specialists, brought together by Yitzchak Schochet, rabbi of the Mill Hill Synagogue in London, to provide free advice to members of the Jewish community.
Regent's Park Mosque in London is one of the UK's biggest Islamic cultural centres. It reported a threefold rise in free legal advice. Abdullah Abdou, the centre's education officer and librarian said there had been a noticeable increase in the numbers applying for "zakat", a system of tithes similar to "alms for the poor"....
God has the answer to our economic needs. Phil. 4:19 Divine Sovereigny means that God is God in fact as well as in name; He is on the throne of the universe, directing all things, working all things ;after the counsel of his own will" (Spurgeon, I think) He may punish a nation for its sin, like in the economy, war, etc. But He still looks after His own and that is where peace comes in.
