Introduction to Sabbath Economics

Virtual Workshop with Ched Myers and Susan Taylor

Friday, Oct. 15 and Saturday, Oct. 16

Hosted by Faith & Money Network, Bartimaeus Cooperative Ministries,
the Festival Center and JustMoney Advisors
Join activist-theologian Ched Myers and economist and author Susan Taylor for Introduction to Sabbath Economics, a virtual, two-part and two-day event on October 15 and 16.

This online workshop will cover the basics of Sabbath Economics as a set of practices grounded in the biblical economic values of rest, jubilee, forgiveness, redistribution, and abundance. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be offered the opportunity to join ongoing "covenant groups" for mutual support and accountability.

This event will be a great opportunity to dig even deeper into faithful giving and living — and it will also be a chance to meet others from across the country who are also on the journey. Learn more, see the full schedule, and register today!

What you'll learn:

In the Friday session, theologian Ched Myers will overview the Sabbath Economics tradition in the Bible and offer an in-depth reading of Luke 16:1-13 as an evocative analogy for our own entanglements in a dysfunctional economic system.

On Saturday, Ched will facilitate a conversation about how we inhabit the Biblical vision through concrete engagements, supported by covenant groups; economist and author Susan Taylor will add the voices of people who are creating the Sabbath Economy through their daily economic practices, to inspire participants’ imagination of what is possible.

Our presenters:

Ched Myers, author of The Biblical Vision of Sabbath Economics, is an activist theologian who has worked in social change movements for more than forty years. He and his partner Elaine Enns co-direct Bartimaeus Cooperative Ministries, in the Ventura watershed of southern California on unceded Chumash land.
Susan Taylor is a partner at Just Money Advisors, an investment management firm that helps clients integrate their money and their values. Susan writes about issues of money and spirituality and works with non-profits that equip people to connect their money and their faith.
