How the Gospel Influences Our Economics
March 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT
Presenter: Tom NelsonSuggested Donation
What influence does the good news of Jesus have on our economics? Too often, Christian teaching and ministry focus only on the gospel’s spiritual significance and ignore its physical, real-world ramifications. But loving our neighbor well has direct economic implications.
Join us for a discussion with pastor Tom Nelson about his new book,The Economics of Neighborly Love: Investing in Your Community’s Compassion and Capacity. Combining biblical study, economic theory, and practical advice, Tom will present a vision for church ministry that works toward the flourishing of the local community, beginning with its poorest and most marginalized members. Join us as we learn how to grow in both compassion and capacity.
(A Zoom video conferencing link will be provided in your confirmation email.)
