Brewed Theology - Tuesday, October 23 - 'Take and Give: The Paradox of Generosity'


Two Opportunities on Tuesday, October 23, 2018
4:00-5:30p and 7:00-8:30p  

In a culture of give and take, what does it mean to live life in the reverse order? Are we born as takers or givers? As we age, do we become more, or less, generous? We will explore these questions, the intersection between faith and finances in our lives, and how our perspectives may have changed through the years.

Invite a Guest

The moniker for all Brewed Theology events is "What church looks like." As we continue to discover where God is working ahead of us outside the walls of the church, Intern Joel and I encourage you to consider this and all BT events as opportunities for authentic connection to the Messiah community and to the Messiah.

Guest Presenter

The Rev. Steve Olson is a Luther Seminary graduate and classmate of Prs. Peter and Kathy. He began his pastoral career in the Seattle area where he developed his stewardship chops and an appreciation for the joy of giving. He has served as a consultant to 56 congregations and specialized ministries in stewardship development. Before establishing his own firm, Steve was Vice President of for Development & University Relations at Pacific Lutheran University, Tacoma, WA.
