Upcoming Events



Faithonomics: connecting belief & practice for the common good. Washington, DC

Mark will be presenting on themes from FREE at this one day event, sponsored by Common Change.   Faithonomics seeks to bring together like-minded individuals to explore the intersection of faith and money.  Connecting our ideals and our practice is easier said than done.  Who we are, what we value, how we live, and even what we believe, are often rooted in our relationship to money and material possessions.  In a culture so deeply defined by money, how do we live well with our Creator and the people around us? Investigate with others in the DC Area how to further create an economy based on abundance (rather than scarcity) within our lives, families, and communities. Sessions and workshops will include:

  • Understanding and creating your money biography
  • How to align your time and money to reflect what matters most to you
  • Explore the power and imagination of collaborative giving
  • Planning for the future: socially conscious investment, community banking and retirement
  • The economy of the marginalized:  mass incarceration and immigration
