Sabbath Economics: A Spiritual Guide Linking Love with Money is a postmodern, experimental mélange of anecdotes, reflections, outlooks, difficulties and achievements likely to be encountered by people who are on the way to wholeness with love with money.
Poetic, pragmatic stories infuse these pages with a spiritual tone. The author’s confessional observations about earning, spending and investing reveal compulsions that lead down dangerous paths with money and love.
Spiritual practices from varied religious traditions invite readers to examine personal assumptions and discover hidden habits.
Provocative questions prompt people of all ages to clarify their own opinions on spending and investing, giving and neighboring.
Transformative journaling prompts – encouragement to think aloud on paper or screen — gives access to deep wells of experience, and builds the confidence needed to change old patterns. The author’s writing prompts encourage readers to reflect upon intensely personal experiences with love and money, identify resonant themes, and make healthier choices.
Paired Sharing questions invite conversation with a trusted other to focus on our “cutting edges,” and creative ways of energizing action.
