Consumer Christians in a World of Want
Three Christian leaders talk about what consumerism is doing to our culture and our churches and our souls. Each of them wrote in the January issue of Christian Standard. (See christianstandard.com.) We'll ask them to expand on what they told us there and answer your questions about how a new view of spending and accumulating can free us for a better life and a stronger relationship with God.
Ryan Connor, lead pastor with Amity (Oregon) Christian Church, looks at the anxiety that can dog us when we worry too much about money.
Janet McMahon, community life director with Restore Community Church in Kansas City, Missouri, shares her experience after committing for a year not to buy anything for herself.
Jay Link, president of Stewardship Ministries in Mooresville, Indiana, talks about why it's important and how it's possible to live on less.
