A Quaker Meeting in Camas, WA
Come join Camas Friends Church on November 22 for our next monthly installment of Last Sunday’s for the Earth. We will be turning our attention to consumption and Christmas by watching the documentary, What Would Jesus Buy? This entertaining “docu-comedy” takes a peering, albeit often painful look, into our excessive consumer practices as Americans. Activist turned faux revival preacher Reverand Billy and his “Church of Stop Shopping” Choir set out on a cross-country tour which includes “retail interventions, corporate exorcisms, and some good old-fashioned preaching.” Rev. Billy sets out to call Americans back to a Christmas that does not rely on consumption. From comfy suburban homes to Wal-Mart, the Mall of America and even Disneyland, Billy and his traveling Choir reveal just what will happen if we surrender to the Shopocalypse.
A time of discussion will follow the film. Direct trade coffee and homemade treats will be provided.
