May 24, 2022: 'A Heart Strangely Warmed' By Getting Rid of Debt
By Ken Sloane
DATE: Tuesday, May 24, 2022
TIME: 6:30 P.M. CDT
PRESENTERS: Ken Sloane, Joe Park
Nineteenth century preacher Henry Ward Beecher said, “A church debt is the devil’s salary”, which probably seems a little extreme today. Many of our churches would not be in the buildings we are without some debt. We do know that money that is spent to retire debt (or in some cases, to simply pay the interest on debt) is money that could be used to expand mission and ministry. On this day that remembers John Wesley’s experience of having his “heart strangely warmed” on Aldersgate Street, join Ken Sloane and his guest Joe Park of Horizons Stewardship as they discuss church debt and what to do about it.
Ken Sloane is the Director of Stewardship & Generosity for Discipleship Ministries of The United Methodist Church.
