Affluent and Christian? Material goods, the King and the kingdom – Newtown & Livestream

The world is becoming wealthier. Since the turn of the century, the net worth of many countries has tripled, poverty rates have fallen, and life expectancy has increased.

At the same time, the divide between rich and poor has increased. Furthermore, while money can buy happiness, it can only do so up to a certain point.

How should Christians think about affluence? Is material prosperity a blessing, a curse or both? At this event, Michael Jensen, rector of St Mark’s Anglican Darling Point, will help us see our earthly treasure the way our heavenly Father does.
