We thought we would try soliciting questions from you all for Shake the Dust episodes we’re recording. Your input is always great, and we would love to get some questions for our guests directly from you. So this upcoming Wednesday, we’re interviewing Pastor Jose Humphreys and Dr. Adam Gustine about their new book, Ecosystems of Jubilee: Economic Ethics for the Neighborhood. If you have questions about the biblical idea of Jubilee, God’s economic justice, neighborhood economic development , or anything similar, please let us know!
