Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 7: Imagining a Transformed World

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

Set aside a time to reflect on economic interdependencies in your life and community. Consider how your livelihood is connected to other people and institutions in your community and in the wider world:

  • What circumstances enabled you to have your current job or other source of income?
  • Whose ongoing labor and support are necessary for your continued economic well-being?
  • What changes could put you in a distressed situation?
  • What are the key financial and ethical values at play in your most important economic relationships?

As you reflect, you may wish to review the work you did earlier in your financial autobiography.

Share your reflections with two or three other people, and ask them to share a little about how they understand their own economic dependencies. With them, imagine new and creative economic relationships that might make a difference in each of your lives and in the lives of others in your community or the wider world. Carry this receptive and imaginative spirit into your leadership of the workshop.
