Always more?

Our society hungers always for more: more body surgery, more cosmetics, more cars, more beer, more sex, more certitude, more security, more money, more power, more oil, ...whatever.

This hunger is a true sign that we do not trust the goodness of God. But religion is about those who are pledged and empowered to act differently; differently in the neighborhood, differently in the economy, and as citizens of the last superpower, differently in the world.

Walter Bruggeman, Mandate to Difference
