The event is part of CUBM’s Theology of Faith, Work and Economics class. No registration is required, and participants can join the session on Nov. 4 at using passcode: 712652.

Executive Director of the Pittsburgh Campus, the Rev.

Dr. Allen, a friend of Geneva College and former faculty member, will guide our timely and significant discussion.”
