      Karam Forum (an Oikonomia Network event) is a two-day gathering for theological educators and Christian academics. Leading Bible and theology scholars will help you train a new generation of Christians who follow King Jesus by loving their neighbors in their daily tasks.

Karam, the Hebrew verb meaning “to tend vineyards,” communicates the vast range of work that goes into creating a healthy and flourishing vineyard. Vineyards need tending – bearing fruit, flourishing, requires careful and creative work. Throughout the Old Testament, Israel is described as a vineyard, a people planted and tended by God. The gleaning laws require that vineyards be places where people of all social stations have the opportunity to flourish interdependently, through a combination of generosity and diligent work. Most important to us is our Lord’s uses of the vineyard image. In particular, Christ said that he was the vine and we were his branches. This image sums up the Oikonomia Network’s commitment to whole-life discipleship as the root of all we do.
