God's Location and Habitation

There is another trap though.  An intellectual pattern of if/then emerges:  if you are weighed down, depressed, dissipated, drunk, with the worries of this life, like Black Friday or Small Business Saturday or Cyber Monday, you will have no strength to stand & raise your head.  Instead, be like the BUYNOTHING movement.  Resist the pull of the false kingdoms around you with their insatiable demands and appetites.  Gather yourself together and pursue the faithful life.  Even as we live and work every day in an economy that demands loyalty, we can bring our justice critiques to the structures that narrow abundance to the few, rather than the many.  We can expand our own vision of what it means to live a shared life in the presence of God.  We can be generous because God is so generous.
