“Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. “ John 12:24
Harvest Time is in the midst of an important shift.
In January 2017, we will open a new organization called Wisdom & Money that will carry the work begun in Harvest Time forward. In this letter, I would like to share some information about why we made this decision, provide a first look at Wisdom & Money and invite your participation in the transition.
I want to be clear at the outset that even though there is a death and rebirth happening, the heart of this transition is not about ending our work with money and Christian spirituality, or ending our relationships with you, our friends. Instead, we are gathering the wisdom we have discovered together and preparing to share it more broadly. In this sense, it’s harvest time for this ministry. (more…)
At Harvest Time we ask, “How can we bring our money into alignment with Christian wisdom and with our own hearts so that all human beings can thrive?”
For more than 15 years, we have been offering retreats and spiritual companionship for people who ask this question. We are privileged to know people who have been able to transform their relationship with money and find ways (i.e. through philanthropy, investing, business management, etc.) for their resources to serve the common good. Click here to read some of their stories. Or explore the many other reflections on money and Christian spirituality that are available on this website.
If you would like to know more, please email Rose at rose@HarvestTime.cc. We’d love to hear from you!
The journey with wealth begins with an experience of extravagant, mystical love. This is the fundamental truth of who God is, who we are, and the energy of the universe. Being human is an invitation to align with it – or maybe it’s just a matter of becoming conscious that this is the reality we live in all the time.
Those of us who have been given/earned wealth can work with money as our spiritual practice – as some choose to work with the body or the breath as a practice. Some of us, in fact, will experience ourselves as called to do so. Money is a particularly effective spiritual practice place as it is a symbol of our interconnectedness and it is the place where so much of our personal and cultural fear gets acted out.
