Topic

Jonas Cornelsen (CMU grad) used the story of the rich man from Luke 16 to explore tensions between the value systems of present human societies and the coming Kingdom of God. What is it about material wealth that is such an obstacle to life as God intended? Those who love and pursue money are worlds apart from those who understand that “downward mobility” (Henri Nouwen) brings contentment. Doris Janzen Longacre’s “More-with-Less” is not just a cookbook, but a way of life. Can we see money as a tool – hold it lightly and give it generosity – rather than as a way of keeping score?
