Between God and Money: Understanding the Place of Money in Our Lives

 

Dates

Sept. 27, Oct. 4 and 11, 2018, 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

Overview

Is money really the root of all evil, or is it something that can facilitate our commitment to the common good? Drawing from Christian theology and social science, this course will provide ministry professionals with an understanding of the role of money in their work and in the world, resources for discussing it with their constituents, and ways of connecting it to the work of justice in the world. Stay for chapel and lunch for more discussion with the leader. Weekly themes will be (1) Creation; (2) Fall; and (3) Redemption. Each session is independent of the others so you can attend one, two, or all three classes.
