1. Do you consider yourself wealthy? What level of assets or income is required to make a person rich? When you consider the people you know, are the wealthy as generous as the poor? What is the role of management when it comes to wealth and poverty?

2. Bruno Dyck says that the "kingdom of God is about reducing the disparity between rich and poor." Do you agree? How much income disparity is there in your community? Do you consider this an issue of social justice? Are there ways for the rich to assist the poor in your community or congregation? Does mutual aid help to reduce inequality?

3. Dyck suggests that salvation is something that happens in community and something that happens in goods-and-services-producing organizations. What do you think he means? How is this different from a more traditional understanding of salvation? What is the role of justice within salvation?

4. Who are the Zacchaeuses in your church? What are the organizations that produce goods and services? What role do they play in your church and what role is Dyck suggesting they should have? What should we learn from the Zacchaeus story?
