Over the weekend I watched the documentary, "What Would Jesus Buy?" and I have to ask every single one of you to go out and rent or buy this DVD and watch it. It isn't a perfect film, but it's an important one and as someone who takes the words of Jesus seriously it is a prophetic look at our Nation and how our obsession with consumption helps to fund the oppression of the poor in other nations.

You have to make sure to watch the "Extra's" section and hear the testimony of a sister in Christ who was arrested and tortured for her faith while in China and how she was forced (in prison) to manufacture Christmas Lights for Americans. She, and you and I, will never look at Christmas lights the same way again.
