Financial Peace U. Time Gaffe by Tim Howey | Jan 7, 2008 | Personal Finance | 2 comments Whoops! I mentioned the start time of Sunday night’s Financial Peace University at 6:30p. I was wrong. It’s at 5:00p. My bad…but register today! 🙂 2 Comments brad on January 13, 2008 at 7:42 pm i have a question about debt and the church – how does the principle of ‘being a slave’ to debt apply to the church? Tim Howey on January 14, 2008 at 11:43 pm Great discussion topic, Brad. It’s also one where people can get quite passionate about. My thought? Ongoing debt is not God’s ideal. If a church is in debt, they need to work/pray to get out of debt as fast as possible. (Grace Church incurred debt as part of our new facility, but debt-reduction is a major emphasis for us in 2008.) I believe it’s one of those “all-things-are-lawful-but-not-helpful” things (1 Corinthians 6:12).
