Event description
Gospel Power vs Institutional Sin - exploring approaches to challenge corporate injustice and poverty

About this Event

Gospel Power vs Institutional Sin

When corporate and civic institutions succumb to greed and societal discrimination, they rob society of its capacity to protect the poor and disadvantaged. They commit the sin of taking from the poor to enrich the rich. This conference will examine some of the strategies institutions use to do this, and how they misinterpret the Biblical narrative to justify their practices.

This is less a conference and more of an experience in dealing with institutional sin. We will hear the history of civic and corporate indulgence in taking from the poor over all of history, and how the challenges that Jesus made expose this institutional sin.

Using a real life case study and a series of current events in North Carolina that has reinforced segregation, poverty and financial greed, we will participate in examining the root causes and practices of governance authorities, civic institutions and even the church and examine ways to use the Power of the Gospel to challenge these institutions.

Lunch included.
