As people of faith, how do we take on the pervasive, overwhelming issue of economic inequality? Where do we begin the discussion of such a complex and influential subject?
In 2015 the Trinity Institute offered a conference called ‘Creating Common Good,’ in which thinkers from a wide range of perspectives and real-world experience offered practical tools to help individuals and congregations address this pressing subject. We offer these four courses to lay the groundwork for our discussions.
In this second class, evangelical writer Rachel Held Evans, who writes and speaks often on issues of economic injustice, tells us how the Bible and everyday life have awakened her and other young evangelicals to a greater sense of community responsibility. Here are the titles of her three lectures:
- Sin, Inequality and the Bible
- Re-thinking Evangelicalism and Community
- Stepping Up
This course is ideal for those seeking to develop a Christian response to increasing economic inequalities.
