How do we spend our money? Why is it so hard to talk about our finances? How does our faith fit in to fiscal affairs? Is the banjo really necessary for the show? These are big questions, best asked with humor.
Get a new perspective on your relationship with God and money during the Ted & Company TheaterWorks show What’s So Funny About Money? at the McPherson Opera House Sunday, February 19, 7 pm. This humorous, thought-provoking show explores our discomfort with talking about money, the financial pressures we face, our use of time, and even corn dogs. See a clip of the show at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEw5FLfO4Pw.
This show is open to the public. Your generous donation at the door will assist WDC pastors with serious financial need to get out of debt through the WDC Matching Fund. According to Mitch Stutzman, Everence Stewardship Consultant, a survey of Mennonite pastors found:
- Many pastors carry significant student debt from both college and seminary studies.
- Many older pastors have debt related to health care.
- Many pastors have insufficient retirement savings.
- A large number of pastors are bi-vocational which brings its own level of financial complexity.
- Many pastors struggle to make sense of financial matters such as clergy tax preparation, financial planning, and appropriate investments.
What’s So Funny About Money? is sponsored by Western District Conference, Mennonite Church USA and generously underwritten by Everence Financial.
