People of faith must ask the question: “How is God calling us to be stewards of social media?” Consider this, and other contemporary questions concerning stewardship with adults under 40 at Luther Seminary’s stewardship leaders conference July 29-31 in St. Paul.
Joe Biden on Pope Francis, before the new Pope’s inauguration at the Vatican: “He shares a vision that all of us share, to reach out to the poor and the dispossessed.”
