What does theology have to say to business? That’s the topic of my upcoming talk at “For Whose Glory: Exploring Faithful Practice in Life, Leadership and Business” on June 15 in Denver. It’s also the topic of a new theological statement put out by the Lausanne Movement, a Wealth Creation Manifesto.
Meeting in Chiang Mai, Thailand in March 2017, leaders from 20 different nations serving God in business, the church, and the academy composed a helpful, simple statement on God’s purposes for wealth creation and business.
I’ll certainly be taking notes as I prepare my talk for our Denver gathering…
We present these affirmations to the Church worldwide, and especially to leaders in business, church, government, and academia.
Ad maiorem Dei gloriam – For the greater glory of God
