Having Nothing, Possessing Everything
Finding Abundant Communities in Unexpected Places (Wm. B. Eerdmans, 2018)

WHO: Michael Mather, pastor of Broadway United Methodist Church in Indianapolis.

HE SAYS: “I began my work as a pastor committed to addressing the scarcity that I saw in the lives of the poor and the marginalized, and now I often feel overwhelmed by the abundance I see, riches where I had thought there was nothing.”

THE BIG IDEA: This collection of stories offers inspiration and tips for finding abundance in scarcity.

The author explains how, in two Indiana congregations he has served, the importance of investing in people.

“We’ve found that when we equipped our neighbors with money, we got a substantial return, because investing in our neighbors helped encourage more and more of them who were doing good work.”
