Posted by Mark L. Vincent on Sep 23, 2021 12:00:00 PM

Earlier this morning, I opened the FUEL conference, a meeting of 100 or so business leaders who draw upon their Christian faith and ethical commitments as they lead the organizations they steward. Thank you to Linda Maris and National Christian Foundation|Wisconsin for persevering through COVID to put this together! Here are the opening comments I shared:

Stewardism

Posted by Mark L. Vincent on Aug 26, 2021 9:16:00 AM

This blog post, originally published in 2009 and now updated in light of yet again another devastating earthquake in Haiti, is as relevant as ever.

Gary Moore, widely known for his writings on faith and economics, once pointed out that the ancient Greeks are the forerunners of modern socialism, the ancient Romans the forerunners of conservative capitalism, and Judaism is the forerunner of what he calls Stewardism, the idea that God owns everything and we manage on God’s behalf.

This Jewish notion that I work on God’s behalf carries over to those of us who take Christianity seriously. Read the opening chapters of Acts and you quickly discover that the early church is not into private enterprise, nor against it. Instead, it is into using what it has to care for the least of these.
