Taking It Home, Workshop 5: Money and Society

In "The Wi$dom Path: Money, Spirit, and Life," a Tapestry of Faith program

If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and not be answered. — Proverbs 21:13

Look up census/demographic data related to poverty in your state or local community. Are you surprised by what you learn? Talk with people familiar with the economic needs in your community to find out more and to discover ways you can help by participating in the political process or by doing service.

Consider your personal economic circumstances. How confident are you that you could financially navigate the situations we role played? What would you do if confronted with circumstances such as those we discussed? Is there a tension between your values and your financial behavior, given the reality of economic injustice? Share your knowledge and reflections with family or trusted friends.
