"I gave up all that inferior stuff so I could know Christ personally, experience his resurrection power, be a partner in his suffering, and go all the way with him to death itself." ~Philippians 3:10

So True...

By Walter Brueggemann

Though many of us are well intentioned, we have invested our lives in consumerism. We have a love affair with ‘more’—and we will never have enough. Consumerism is not simply a marketing strategy. It has become a demonic spiritual force among us, and the theological question facing us is whether the Gospel has the power to help us withstand it.

The Gospel has to have the power, doesn't it?

Just found your blog. Enjoyed looking around. Loved this post on consumerism. Amen, to it.

PS - we need to make a Red Sox/Ranger's game one of these days.
