"For in its welfare you will find your welfare," wrote the prophet, after instructing the Jewish exiles to pray for the land they inhabited. We manage our personal finances for the service of God and neighbor. But what about our collective resources?

  • How do we order our common economic life?
  • Are there economic policies Christians should categorically endorse, reject?
  • What about the poor and disadvantaged in a merit-based marketplace?
  • What about when orthodox believers disagree? 

Come hear economists Stephen L.S. Smith and Nathan Barczi in dialog, with others joining the conversation. 

Bring your toughest questions and strongest convictions.
