A city full of idols?
Being Church in a Consumer Society
In the earliest days of the Church, recorded in the Acts of
the Apostles, we see a Christian community that chooses to
live a ‘counter-cultural’ lifestyle, letting go of personal wealth
in favour of a heavenly inheritance. Our society today puts
great emphasis not only on wealth but on choice and personal
fulfilment as great goods. But is that the Christian way?
How do we, as a Church, navigate this consumer society?
How can we reveal its shortcomings and model the life of God’s kingdom? Has consumerism infiltrated the Church itself?
This online summer school will explore these questions and look at what it means to be Church in a consumer society.
