Workshop Description: Money. Every day, we have to make choices about how we get it, spend it, invest it, or share it. And yet, few people feel confident about how they’re handling their finances. The stress associated with money can take a toll on our minds, hearts, and bodies as well as wreak havoc in our relationships. Studies reveal that fighting over money is the leading cause of divorce.

  • What can we do to make sure that we are in control of our finances rather than letting our finances control us?
  • How can we ensure we have enough money to cover all our family’s needs, save for the future, and still give generously towards the causes we care about?

The Bible is packed with wise counsel about finances. This highly practical workshop will help you:

  1. Understand what God says about money.
  2. Give you concrete action steps so you can become a better steward of the resources God has entrusted to you.

Call for Papers
AAG 2014: Tampa

The AAG’s Geography of Religions and Belief Systems (GORABS) Specialty Group invites papers and session to be submitted for sponsorship for the AAG’s Annual Meeting in Tampa, FL in 2014.

GORABS promotes the use of religion as a geographical analytic. Historically, the group has focused on how religion impresses a human impact on the environment and vice versa. Complementing these environmental approaches, more recent work in geographies of religion have revealed that religion is a productive lens through which to understand and debate secularization processes, the intersection of religion in social identity formation, the role of religion in cultural processes of placemaking, and issues of religion in political geography. Geographers of religion are contributing to current conversations and challenges in race, gender, sexuality, age, migration studies, critical geopolitics, global development studies, political…

Investment Manager, Jeffery Wong, to Present at Symposium

“The Finance Industry and the Kingdom: Points of Dissonance, Points of Resonance”

Jeff Wong's photoJeffrey Wong has over 25 years of experience in finance, trading, and investment management. He will be sharing from the expertise and insight he has garnered over that time, including thoughts on the challenges of integrating work in the financial sector within a kingdom framework, and practical ways we can be good stewards of our finances.

Specific topics include dealing with the idols that arise from working in a money-focused industry, working in a profession that seems to benefit a more narrow scope of people (in contrast with fields such as medicine and education with a wider reach of society), whether serving the kingdom takes place through or apart from work, living simply, and implementing a sound savings/investment plan.
