Come to the launch of Plenty!
Plenty!, a small group discussion resource for churches on the economic drivers of the current ecological crises has been produced by Green Christian’s Joy in Enough programme. The launch is on Thursday 24 June at 7pm, with key-note speaker Eve Poole, a panel discussion and a presentation on ‘Plenty!’. You can sign up now to attend the launch through Eventbrite.
’Plenty!’ can be run online via Zoom, or face to face. Each session is 75 minutes and is led by a facilitator with short pre-reading for participants. Sessions begin with a short video clip and is followed by questions for discussion. The themes for the sessions are:
- Plenty! – Inequality.
- Just can’t get enough – Consumerism and advertising
- Growing pains – The growth imperative and debt
- God is in business – Economic justice
- Running out of planet – The climate emergency
- Joy in Enough – Towards sustainability and wellbeing
The 6 sessions engage with the social, psychological and theological implications of the current economic system – including the idea that economic growth is essential to human flourishing – and its impact on the environmental crisis we are facing. Participants are encouraged to envision other, better ways of living together well.
All the Plenty! materials will be available for downloading after the launch on 24 June on the Joy in Enough website.
