Archives For Kelly Johnson

 

The audio recordings of  all three THROUGH THE CONSUMING FIRE conference speakers are now available on cd. The cd’s are $5 ea (basically just the cost of materials and time for copying, etc.), but if you buy all three We’ll throw in a bonus cd with MP3 recordings of most of the workshops.

Main Speakers:
– Will Samson — Community and Contentment
– Kelly Johnson — St. Francis, Stewardship and Filthy Lucre?
– Shane Claiborne — Creativity in Resisting Consumerism

Unfortunately, Kelly Johnson’s talk was a little lower quality because our computer crashed during it and we lost our soundboard recording and had to use a recording made in the audience. (Thanks, Mykel).

If you want a set of the recordings, here is a link to pay for them $15 + $3.95 S/H (If you’re here in Indy, I think PAYPAL will allow you the choice to pick them up and save the S/H fee…)

Consumerism is one of the greatest challenges facing the church in North America today.  Ultimately, consumerism is a form of self-indulgence that does great harm to our brothers and sisters around the world and indeed to all of Creation.  At the Through the Consuming Fire conference, we will explore what economic faithfulness would look like – particularly as shaped by denying ourselves, taking up our cross and following Jesus.  Specifically, we will examine three themes that when taken together will give us a good start on the journey toward economic faithfulness: community, contentment and creativity.  In community, we learn to prefer others to ourselves, to bear one another’s burdens and to be a local culture with its own economy.  In contentment, we learn to trust in God’s super-abundant provision and to find joy in what we have and thus we nurture gratitude, and become able to resist consumerism’s constant longing for more.  In creativity, we learn to become producers instead of consumers, to fix and re-use things instead of disposing of them, to find ways of celebrating that revel in the gifts of persons, rather than in those of stuff.  With an eye toward the coming Advent season, and beyond, let’s gather to discuss these things that we might grow in the economic faithfulness and freedom to which we have been called through the death and resurrection of Jesus.
