Knowledge & News
Thought provoking topics and series, necessary news and information.
Note: The following “review,” contains spoilers and is intended for those who have already seen the film and desire a more thought provoking engagement with the film. That being said, this article is more of a commentary and/or analysis than it is a conventional review. In no way does this article offer an exhaustive analysis of the film that completes and ends all conversation about the film’s meaning. Rather, the author’s intention is to inspire further commentary and critique in the readership as a means of continuing the ongoing interaction between film and theory. Once more, if you have not seen this film, we do not recommend that you read this article.
Greed:”The love of money is root of all kinds of evil”
“Greed is the selfish desire for or the obsession with wealth and possessions.”
Our judgment of greed is a grey area since we see it subjectively. It is hard to tell when the line between justifiable luxury and greed has been crossed. It is largely a matter of intuition, so we turn inwardly. We ask why we have the desires. We all are the target of scriptural critiques of the wealthy. We judge ourselves comparatively to those we perceive as more wealthy than ourselves.
During our Lenten self-examination we will be discussing the underlying themes to the aspects of our own lives that distress us, and seeking answers to whether our habits are virtuous and life-giving or vices that rob us of life.
This Sunday we finished the series of welcoming by ‘Welcoming the Self.’
We first posed the question of why it is so hard for members of a society that is identifiably narcissistic to love themselves. While Christianity teaches us to love our neighbors as ourselves, the first obligation is often emphasized and the last is rejected. Who would we dare treat the way we treat ourselves?
We are a misfit faith community that gathers in DeLand on Sundays at 5pm. Come as you are.
We value highly the metaphor of journey. We’re different people from different places and backgrounds, representing an intergenerational community, and we’ve traveled different paths. So, we agree not to make assumptions about the person across from us, next to us, or in conversation with us. We challenge ourselves to be sensitive, knowing this community includes a diverse group of people from life-long followers of Jesus, to people who are just now open to the idea that God might exist. We strive to avoid offense, ask good questions, articulate and explain our responses. We don’t assume fluency in bible, spirituality, or Church language, because we believe the message of Jesus is not for Christianity, but for humanity. So, we do everything in the spirit of love and grace.
