"Is God a Capitalist? Why It Matters to the Church."
Michael Budde of De Paul University and the Ekklesia Project will guide us in a discussion exploring the ways in which market-driven assumptions have shaped our ideas of who God is, who we are, and how the church sees its mission. After he will offer us a bit of a taste of what an alternative might be.
While we often ask, “How can the church be in the world but not of it?” the question that might take us to the heart of our Western Situation is “How can the Church be in, but not of, Capitalism and all its insinuating paraphernalia?” This gathering, while appealing to those concerned with issues of economics, justice, and globalization, will equally benefit those concerned with discipleship, worship, and evangelism as we seek to be and make disciples of Christ in this emerging context.
