“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; it is shalom.” – Steve Corbett, author of When Helping Hurts

Seeking Shalom is a 6-week course about how reimagining our response to poverty can transform lives and restore communities. In this interactive, small group experience you will be introduced to two dozen thought leaders and practitioners, who will help us:

  • learn why the traditional approaches to poverty alleviation are not working,
  • explore a more robust biblical framework for understanding poverty, and
  • be introduced to the five keys to healthy and effective engagement.

This course, designed by the Lupton Center, will be facilitated by the Rev. Richard Weinberg, Rector of St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church.

Registration will provide you with (1) a six-week live facilitated Zoom course, (2) a digital course participants’ guide, and (3) access to an online course with on-demand videos that you can return to at any time. Note that the $20 registration fee is what St. Margaret’s will owe the Lupton Center for each person who participates. We are happy to provide a scholarship to any who need; just select the “Scholarship” option when checking out.
