"A Christian Bank’s Challenge to Urban Poverty"
Robert Wauzzinski
Dwelling House Savings & Loan in Pittsburgh’s Hill District was a different kind of financial institution. Intentionally run on Christian principles, this bank found one successful way to address urban poverty. It represents one of the most inspiring examples of the integration of Christian faith and the competitive world of business. Robert is an ordained PC(USA) pastor and has taught for 30 years at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, as well as in churches and even prisons. He is currently writing a book on the history and the philosophy of economics. Robert has been married to his wife for over 40 years; they have two adult children.

"The Literary Character of Our Faith"
Dr. Rebecca Weaver
Christianity is a “text-based religion.” As a result, a believer’s relationship with God is remarkably literary. Presbyterians accentuate the literary character of our faith by the great authority that we grant to the Bible. This presentation focuses on the importance that Christians attach to the scriptures, from the earliest centuries into the present. Dr. Weaver is Professor Emerita of Church History, Union Presbyterian Seminary.
