Compassion, Economics, and Work

Redeeming Work Conference 2015 – Pittsburg


In this 29-minute session, Tom Nelson, Senior Pastor of Christ Community Church in Leawood, Kansas, uses the Parable of the Good Samaritan to illustrate why faith, work, and economics should go hand in hand. He says to truly love your neighbor means to have both compassionate and economic capacity.
