Many of us, as people of faith, give a portion of our income to help others. But what about the money we don’t give away—the money we plan to spend, save for emergencies or invest for retirement? As unbelievable as it may sound, we can use that money on behalf of God’s community, as well, and still have it for what we need. Our savings can actively benefit our community and be there when we need it. Our investments can support our faith values and grow for retirement. We can support an economy of enough for all by thoughtfully choosing what we buy. Our guests will expand our vision for the money we don’t give away. Andy Loving is a financial advisor to people who work for justice through their finances. And Jim Marsh will share how he moved his money to savings and investment choices that support his deeply-held faith. Please join us as we continue to make the connection between our faith and our money.
