Information

All of the essentials to host a grand exploration of For the Life of the World: Letters to the Exiles with your small group, church, or organization.

Be entertained as you explore the deep question of what your salvation is FOR. What does having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ mean for the here and now of living on earth?

Evan Koons, along with Stephen Grabill, Amy Sherman, Anthony Bradley, Makoto Fujimura, John M. Perkins, Tim Royer, and Dwight Gibson will show practical application of what it means to be “in the world, not of it.”

This seven-part series explores God’s purposes in family, work, creativity, charity, education, government, church, and all creation. This deep investigation is through the lens of God’s Economy of All Things, OIKONOMIA (a Greek word that you’ll learn more about).

EPISODE DESCRIPTIONS:

Ep 1 - Exile

Our journey begins by discovering a new – yet ancient – perspective: we are exiles, "not home yet," called to live as gift-givers wherever we are.

Ep 2 - Economy of Love

What is the point of family? We'll explore God's design for family – how it shapes us as individuals and contributes to the flourishing of our communities.

Ep 3 - Economy of Creative Service

Is our labor in the world about survival, or is there more to the "daily grind"? We'll take a closer look at how our individual and collaborative endeavors play a part in a divine project of creativity.

Ep 4 - Economy of Order

It's not hard to find pain in this world. How do we seek justice for the oppressed? I wonder if creativity, freedom, and hospitality have something to do with the answers we're searching for?

Ep 5 - Economy of Wisdom

Why should we know stuff? To accumulate knowledge? To get a good job? Maybe God gives us unique callings to understand his creation and use what we learn to serve others.

Ep 6 - Economy of Wonder

Must everything have a practical usefulness, or is there value in being useless? Perhaps, the blessed inefficiency of wonder helps us grasp God's extravagant, gratuitous love for us. "Taste and see that the Lord is good."

Ep 7 - The Church

In our quest to know and live out "God's Economy of All Things," a rather large question remains: "What is the role of the church in the world?" Do our stories of exile have a purpose in God's plan for all things?
