In a time of cultural disruption and societal systems in collapse, the evangelical church is wrestling through its own moment with an identity crisis. In part 1 we discussed how our consumeristic culture has contributed to this moment. This week, we bring you part 2 of a conversation about consumerism and the church, offering a constructive re-imagination and pathway forward to restoring the church and participating in God’s mission in the world.
How can the church remain culturally relevant while remaining distinct in its mission for a greater purpose? This week we bring you part 1 of a conversation about consumerism and its relationship with the church, both negatively and positively. In this episode, we begin the process of understanding how to speak the “native” cultural language of consumerism as people of faith and how it shapes our everyday life experiences through religious and non-religious liturgies.
