Dr. Richard Lowery will lead a one-day seminar on “Preaching About Stewardship” at the Indiana Interchurch Center on Wednesday, September 30.  The seminar will begin at 10:30 a.m.

This workshop will include an in-depth exploration of the first biblical creation story, Genesis 1:1-2:4a, and consider its importance for the theology and ethics of wealth, work, and care for creation. Discussions will center on the practical significance of the theology of abundance that lies at the heart of the creation narrative. We will also contrast the theology of abundance with the so-called “prosperity gospel.”

Dr. Lowery most recently was Interim Dean of Lexington Theological Seminary on loan from Phillips Theological Seminary where he is the Professor of Hebrew Bible. He is also a practical theologian concerned with the church’s contemporary mission in the world.

Preaching About Stewardship is being sponsored by the Indiana-Kentucky Conference of the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Indiana. 

The cost for registration is $30, which includes lunch.  Registration forms are available online at indianadisciples.org.
