The accusers came at him from all sides, but their accusations turned out to be nothing more than arguments about their religion and a dead man named Jesus, who the prisoner claimed was alive. (Acts 25:18)
a Book thought...
As followers of Jesus the fool, we should be at the forefront of offering hospitality to the hungry, to the refugee, to the dispossessed, and to do so requires a poverty of us and our churches. (p132 Frost)
This website is sensational! Have a look at http://www.storyofstuff.com/ From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever. By the way if you don't have any intention to change the way you live your life, then watch this at your own peril.
Just a thought.
