“Conflict from Below: The Possibility of Astonished Gratitude” Dr. Walter Brueggemann

& School for Leadership Training.

Walter Brueggemann offers the second of three plenary address for the 2012 School for Leadership Training.  Brueggemann takes the manna story as the root of a counter narrative about finance that is grounded in creation that exhibits the generosity of God and the abundance of resources for the community of the world.

The 2012 theme for School for Leadership Training seeks to engage church and business leaders in an exploration of such questions and to plumb the wisdom of those living with possible answers. This school intentionally invites us to look deeply at how our handling of money flows out of or impacts our faith.  Walter Brueggemann’s evening keynote addresses give us scriptural footing for our explorations.

This event is co-sponsored by Eastern Mennonite Seminary, EMU’s department of business and economics, and Everence.
