Presenters: Anne Rathbone Bradley, Ph.D., Anthony B. Bradley, Ph.D., J. Daryl Charles, Ph.D.Free
We were made to live in freedom and flourish. But what ideas form the foundation for healthy, thriving communities? How does our understanding of the human person, economics, and work help us build a culture for flourishing?
Join us for a day of discussion where we’ll explore:
• The human person made in the Image of God
• The economic realities of our world
• The value and dignity of our daily work and labor
We will also screen our award-winning film, Poverty, Inc., and address the ways we can successfully engage communities living in material poverty.
