SABBATH ECONOMICS: LIVING GOD'S ABUNDANCE AND JUSTICE
March 19 - 21, 2010
Find faithful alternatives to globalism, consumerism, and corporate capitalism. Explore economic values, teachings, and practices in the Bible, including the Mosaic covenant, the vision of Jubilee, the prophets, Jesus, and the early church. How do these biblical values seek to nurture a human community of reverence, abundance, equity, and care for creation? Discern the implications for our own economic and spiritual practices – as individuals, as communities, as congregations, and as citizens of the global economy.
