Beyond Consumerism

How do we live our lives as disciples of Jesus Christ in the 21st century? There is a constant pressure to create models and programs designed to make local churches bigger. But is that better?

Let's get committed to discipleship. It works in the smallest churches to the largest ones, and it's all about a desire for a deep relationship with God.

I'm tired of "consumer Christianity." I want to be a true follower of Jesus. How about you?

Abundance has brought beautiful things to our lives, but that bevy of material goods has not necessarily made us much happier. The paradox of prosperity is that while living standards have risen steadily decade after decade, personal, family and life satisfaction haven't budged. That's why people — liberated by prosperity but not fulfilled by it — are resolving the paradox by searching for meaning. Dan Pink
