Redeeming Money: the Quest for an Economy of Generosity
Wednesday, 29th June 2016 from 18:00
St Mary-le-Bow, Cheapside, London EC2V 6AU
We are delighted to welcome the Rev. Dr. James Walters of the LSE Faith Centre to give a Christian Social and Political Thought Lecture.
What are Christians meant to think about money? We know that loving it is the root of all evil (1 Timothy 6.10). So we tend to view it as a morally neutral instrument of exchange and value that only becomes a danger when we get greedy. Yet the financial crisis we have been living through has raised far deeper moral questions about how money shapes our lives and societies. It suggests that the ways we think of money and use money, both systemic and personal, are in need of redemption.
The lecture will be followed by Fairtrade wine and refreshments.
