TOPICS

EPISODE 7: The three gifts at Jesus’ birth urge give-away’s; manure helps focus on the way Jesus was born, not decorations; non-material gifts or hand-made gifts, such as tree ornaments and their memories, counter gift-giving obscenity. Give stories. If we hate it, why do we do it? Developing a willingness to say No. Santa says good kids get gifts; if you don’t, you’re bad. Distributing alternative ideas outside a mall on Buy Nothing Day. Buy things that last and at Thrift Shops (Tony’s $6 suit). Simple ≠ ugly; attractive home ≠ expensive. Emil Durkheim: importance of family rituals; eat together, stay together; share values at meals. Rituals create a sense of security, well-being, belonging.

TOPICS

PART 6: Social Justice; creating jobs that do things we believe it. Post-oil economy, using restaurant grease, running off the waste of society, creating biodiesel co-op for recovering addicts. Graduate program creating small businesses, e.g., sandals from old tires. Bono at the National Prayer Breakfast: government, give more to help the poor; security doesn’t come through the military. Cancel Third-World debt. Farm subsidies hurt indigenous farmers abroad – anti-capitalistic without an even playing field! U.S. is arming the world. Are we Christian? Ask the poor. Ask colleges questions about values, not selfish questions. A Jubilee celebration on Wall St. with the homeless holds up an alternative. We need dreams and visions beyond consumerism. Weddings: socially conscious rings are made with dignity, not blood diamonds. Hollywood is speaking out more than the church. Prom for senior citizens. Extravagances of Christmas. 25/6=2758759
