Dancing with Consumerism Out of Ur Following God's Call in a New World Conversations hosted by the editors of Leadership journal
This is a good article and particularly compelling for me was the final paragraph-
The way that I think about engaging it is…well, let’s look at how Jesus interacted with his culture. Jesus used three primary movements in every context. The first movement is towards. So he was incarnational. He entered. People like to use the word relevant for this. But Jesus also moved against the culture, he was resistant. He overturned tables in the temple and said “You brood of vipers.” So he was both relevant and resistant. And third, Jesus withdrew to quiet places. He was also distant, he moved away. So you have three rhythmic movements of toward, against, and away—relevance, resistance, and distance. And none of those can be static. They always have to be happening.
Enter, Resist, and Distance. This I can do as I live out the counter-culture of Jesus Christ.
