Consume, consume, consume . . .

I just stumbled upon this excellent article about consumerism today by Doug Pagitt. Doug is a wiley pastor at Solomon’s Porch in Minneapolis.

In this shopping-frenzied season, take a break.

Don’t go to the mall.

Don’t get another thing just to have it.

Be still, be silent, listen, and pray.
