Consumerism thrives in the United States. I believe most of us are enslaved to this evil. We very easily become consumed by our consumption. We buy and we're owned far too often. This doesn't have to be true. There is escape and there is redemptive ways to own, possess, consume.
This video by Seattle native rapper Macklemore (who my pastor recently introduced me to) takes a beautiful and breathetaking look at consumption in the urban world, particularly in connection to Nike shoes. The evil and damage of consumerism is more real than we're often aware. I love seeing this guy stepping up and talking about it. Enjoy!
