This past Sunday, I offered some questions to consider as we follow Jesus' into his way of peace and abundance. Here are those questions. Send me an email as you explore these - I'd love to hear what you're learning! David (firstname.lastname@example.org)
What are the mountains of violence or economic oppression in our world? How can we live, work, and pray against them?
How do our daily choices and habits affect the peace and abundance of other people around the world?
Where do the products I buy come from?
How are the people treated who make them?
How is the earth affected by the process through which these products arrive for my use?
For those of us with investments, what kind of companies do we have our money invested in, through retirement accounts or other means of investing? Are these companies building peace and justice, or building mountains of oppression?
What kind of media (e.g. books, websites, music, TV, movies) do I use? Who benefits from my engagement with this media? Does this media contribute to or fight against the mountains of violence and economic oppression?
