Join Grace for an important discussion about who we are and how we use resources, inspired by Sallie McFague’s 2013 book, Blessed are the Consumers. Grace member Alice Montgomery will lead us as we consider our society’s relationship to the environment, and how the lives of several saints gone before us can provide lessons on stewardship, love of ourselves, and love of others.
About The Book:
For decades, Sallie McFague has lent her voice and her theological imagination to addressing and advocating for the most important issues of our time. In doing so, she has influenced an entire generation, and empowered countless people in their efforts to put religion in the service of meeting human needs in difficult times.
In this timely book, McFague recalls her readers to the practices of restraint. In a world bent on consumption it is imperative that people of religious faith realize the significant role they play in advocating for the earth, and a more humane life for all.
