Enough for Everyone: a blog


  • Welcome to Explorations in Just Living--the blog of the Enough for Everyone program of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). By "just living" we mean two things: embodying God's call to justice in our daily lives and "living simply so that others may simply live." We look forward to exploring with you.

You might want to check further into exactly who has funded this project - The Tides Foundation which is a George Soros socialist organization. Also, in fairness to America, you might want to also look at the other side of this issue: Story of Stuff Critique:

I'm not happy to see Socialism preached to me by my church.

Marci...I am glad to see a voice of reason on this website. Have any of the people that are teaching and preaching this garbage even looked into the sources from which it comes? I am seriously questioning my participitation in the Presbyterian Church. One pastor in our church seems to be marching in lock step with the progressive agenda. I go to church to learn God's word and how it can help me be a better person. I am tired of listening to my pastor interject her political beliefs and progressive rants. It is very sad, because my family and I are very attached to the people of the church. I just don't know how much longer I can support a church (PCUSA as a whole) that so openly supports Socialism and bashes the American way of life. I think PCUSA will soon either see their numbers drop or have a lot of angry parishoners on their hands. God bless you in your journey. And God bless America.

Just on a whim, I typed in Tides Foundation on the PCUSA website. I was shocked when it actually appeared, and when I read that someone in our church is promoting the socialist "The Story of Stuff." After seeing where our church supports abortion, gun control and boycotting Arizona, I had my name removed as a member of the Presbyterian Church. I no longer want any of my money going to support political endeavors that I don't believe in.

Let's see, the Tides Foundation (George Soros' way to launder his ill gotten gains and support far left causes)
paid for this video. Add this to the Huffington Post, Media Matters, the Center for American Progress---and now NPR. You may want to join the ultra progressive United Church of Christ in having your tax free status questioned through political activity, but I want nothing to do with such a church. I have contacted my local pastor to start a discussion within our congregation. Maybe some of those EVIL CAPITALISTS
who donate would like to know what the church stands for.

Glad to see I'm not the only one looking at what our church now stands for. We are considering whether to work within our local church to enlighten others, or to move on to another church. I am seriously concerned that most folks won't believe or be moved to care.

I don't go to church to hear political propaganda. I look forward to hearing God's word, to bring the right prospective into my life, so that I can make the choices God would have me make. With God's help, I will make those choices - not the govt. or even my church.

God bless all.
