Consumerism has seeped into almost every aspect of our lives. Almost everyone is trying to get us to consume the product they are selling. But there is an alternative… an alternate community… a community that gives far more than it takes. A community where you can find mutual acceptance, encouragement, and dependability. A community of which you are personally invited to be a vital part.
Consumerism has made life hollow… artificial… disposable… We can’t enjoy and live in the “now” because we are always looking for more, newer, or better. This cycle of unsatisfaction affects every part of our lives. Maybe we need something else. Something we can’t consume… but something we can be.
Consumerism doesn’t fulfill its promise of happiness. Instead of being happy, we are overworked, overstressed, in debt, unsettled, and unsatisfied. How can we kill consumerism before it kills us?
We are on a constant quest for more and more only to find our lives and experiences feeling emptier and emptier. It doesn’t have to be this way. There is a way out that allows YOU to be part of the solution. But, before we can talk about our role in a solution we have to identify the real problem.
