Gift and Social Enterprise: An Interview with Mark Sampson (The Distillery Podcast)

5 · 28 · 19

Shari Oosting, host of Princeton Theological Seminary’s podcast, The Distillery, recently interviewed Mark Sampson from Matryoshka Haus. We think it’s definitely worth sharing with you!

Titled “Gift and Social Enterprise,” the episode description reads:

The lines between business and charity are dissolving, and a new category—social enterprise—is emerging. In this episode, Mark Sampson explains that the Church is not immune to the effects of this shift. Yet, he believes that the language of gift and reciprocity enables Christians to imagine creative new economic possibilities and engage with their communities through enterprise.

We hope you’ll give it a listen!

The Distillery podcast explores the essential ingredients of book and research projects with experts in their field of study. It is a production of Continuing Education at Princeton Theological Seminary and is hosted on The Thread

But we can learn what they learned, that the answers we were looking for were already baked into our everyday lives. The big stuff is the small stuff
