October 27 - “Love, radical generosity for the real world, Let Go.” by Laura Sumner Truax and Amalya Campbell. Amalya Campbell will discuss her book following worship (11:05am).
When LaSalle Street Church in Chicago received an unexpected windfall, its leaders made the wild, counterintuitive decision to give it away. Each church member received a check for $500 with the instruction to go out and do good inGod’s world.
In Love Let Go readers witness now a church community was transformed by the startling truth that money canbuy happiness - when we give it away. Throughout the book Truax and Campbell probe the connections of human flourishing to generosity and offer tools to help us reclaim our giver identities and live generously - to love and let go.
About the authors: Amalya Campbell is a marketing consultant in Wilmette, Illinois with an MBA from Harvard Business School. For many years she has led stewardship classes at LaSalle Street Church.
Laura Sumner Truax is senior pastor at LaSalle Street Church in downtown Chicago, a teaching pastor at the University of Chicago.
