In Maynooth on Sunday June 26 at 1pm I will be doing something I’ve never done before: trying to explain the last three years of reading and thinking and writing in a way that doesn’t require footnotes.
Basically, I have been invited by the church I used to work for, the Presbyterian Church in Maynooth, to give an introduction to the theology of wealth. I will be road-testing a theory I have about how to explain my academic research in ways that are accessible and meaningful and helpful. Invariably, it will be a horrendous mess and the people who take the time to attend will remember it only for comedic value.
Without giving the game away, I think that the only hope that wealthy western Christians have is prayer.
Please feel free to come along; I’d love to see you and I would really appreciate your feedback. The location details are here.
Now, I am going to go meet Ben Folds.
