This Week in Personal Finance – May 7, 2010

by Jason on May 7, 2010

I’m writing this from sunny, balmy Knoxville, TN!

A group of eight of us from church came down to what’s called the Salt and Light conference.

The conference is put on by the Compassion Coalition , a non-profit org. that desires to see churches live out Matthew 5:14, which calls believers to be salt and light in their cities, communities and centers of influence.

Our church is currently doing a county-wide assessment of the biggest needs, issues and concerns as well as taking a look at the biggest assets and strengths with the goal being more partnership with other believers and organizations in our county to seek the common good of our area.

This conference is about how to do it effectively.

Tim Keller says that the best way to show Christianity to others is to seek the common good of our cities.  Essentially to live out mercy and justice (not at the expense of sharing what the gospel is, but in addition to).

I’m really excited about this trip and I’ll be sure to share some highlights in some future posts!

At any rate, it’s another week in the books and it’s time for a fly by of the week.

This Week in Personal Finance takes a look at interesting articles, posts and news from the past week in the personal finance arena.
