Anabaptist World call for submissions: “Wise managers?”
Deadline: May 3. About 600 to 1,200 words. Photos would be a bonus!
From everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required. — Luke 12:38
How are Anabaptists doing as stewards — as caretakers of community resources and personal assets, financial and otherwise? In North America, the gulf between those experiencing poverty and those with economic abundance is growing. Are we complicit in unjust economic systems? Or do we participate in a more equitable distribution of resources?
Do you participate in creative or alternative financial systems? What are they? How do they positively contribute to your life and community?
Do we use our church buildings well? How can our buildings be assets or tools for ministry outside of Sunday mornings?
What do followers of Christ have to offer to mainstream financial structures? Are we called to participate differently? How?
How do you or your church integrate the concept of stewardship with issues such as environmental care/climate change or racial justice?
What is the economic system of Jesus? How does your faith disrupt your participation in materialism/economic exploitation, one of the three evils named by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.?
