Stewardship and Culture” online course

     Betsy Schwarzentraub teaches a yearly online course called “Stewardship and Culture.” The course assists participants to engage and critique the society and church culture in which they live. Students will: assess Western assumptions about achievement; examine consumerism to help shatter the myth of more; review the influence of marketing and technology; and strengthen a culture of generosity in their congregation.

     Here is a video introducing the content of the course
