Please join us for a new Economics & Theology lecture series beginning this fall at Union Theological Seminary.  Jointly sponsored by The Institute for New Economic Thinking and Union, this innovative series will imagine creative ways for thinking about money and markets in light of the world’s economic challenges.  The first question is the obvious one:  how do we even begin such a conversation?  We’ve decided to start by inviting Nobel Prize – winning economist Joseph Stiglitz into a conversation with Rev. Dr. Serene Jones about his thoughts on God, death, hope, happiness, mystery, suffering, value, grace, and evil.  We are then asking Robert Johnson, Betty Sue Flowers and Gary Dorrien to join the conversation as well.  We don’t know what the answers will be, but we know the dialogue will be interesting.

The 2012/13 Economics & Theology series promises to provide unusual, probing discussions between economists and theologians about the deep questions that guide our search for viable economic futures.   The series begins on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 at 6:00 in Union’s James Memorial Chapel hosted by Rev. Dr. Serene Jones, President. Faculty and students are welcome and invited to participate in the ongoing conversation.

Registration is required. RSVP Online Now!
