Simplicity as Resistance

July 28, 2019 Speaker: Pastor Chris Pollock Series: God is Green

Scripture: Philippians 4:4–4:9

Sermon Title: Simplicity as Resistance

Speaker: Pastor Chris Pollock

Sermon Series: God is Green

Short description: We often equate our ability to acquire things with a sense of power; but what if our desire to get stuff was actually a form of slavery? Jesus' invitation always requires leaving stuff behind, but as we listen to the witness of creation and scripture we find that this is a gift of freedom. We are invited to engage in the ancient Christian practice of simplicity not as a duty, but as resistance to the ways of Pharaoh and empire.
