Why should economics be a matter of faith and practice for Christians? How can we privilege community over capital in our daily lives? What would it look like to build Sabbath economics into our personal giving, earning, banking, and investing?
Dig into these questions and more when you join Faith and Money Network leaders in 2023 for an eight-month commitment to exploring the seven principles of the Sabbath economics framework developed by Ched Myers and Bartimaeus Cooperative Ministries.
Our Household Practices Covenant Groups are for community members who have who have already completed a Sabbath Economics workshop or a Money, Faith and You study group and commit to meeting monthly and supporting one another in discerning how to put Sabbath economics to work in their daily lives.
What to Expect
A Faith and Money Network facilitator will lead each online group (via Zoom video conference) for a two-hour session once a month for eight months. We’re forming groups now, with the hope of launching the week of January 23, 2023; the monthly date and time will be determined based on the participants’ availability.
Each monthly two-hour session provides participants with the chance to check in on their progress and practice of specific actions they’ve identified, as well as encouraging and providing accountability for other group members. Group facilitators send material between monthly sessions that enhances the learning experience and gives participants the opportunity to dive into each component with videos, readings, podcasts, and/or interviews.
Here’s what past participants have said about their Covenant Group experience:
I loved the easy nature of it. People shared and were transparent. There was a natural, implicit accountability in that you wanted to do the work and be ready and honest about what you shared, but nothing was forced or legalistic.
This experience really highlighted for me how much I need an accountability group to encourage and inspire me to persevere against the pushback I received from others.
It spurred good reflection, conversation, and action with others and ultimately in our own household.
