10:30 Service:— Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, “Beware the Market God”    The organization behind our local F.A.I.T.H. chapter describes consumerism as the “market god.” We are all susceptible to its chant of BUY- BUY – BUY! and you will be HAPPY - HAPPY-! HAPPY!   How can we be vaccinated against this culturally ingrained imperative?
