Hello everyone and welcome to Twin Cities. Many of you have been part of a significant moment of life transition this weekend. Graduation time is such a sweet time.
It’s a time to say goodbye to the past and hello to the future. For many people, the future is uncertain, and many of today’s graduates face a time when resources may be scarce. We’re glad you’re with us, and we’ve been praying that you would experience God’s faithful reassurance.
This season of recession and insecurity was caused by many different things all coming together at one time to create a perfect storm. There are many people to blame, but blame is not the answer. Responsibility is the only way to get out of our current circumstances and move toward a future of security.
We are all part of the problem we face, and we are all part of the solution as well. Today, we’re going to the heart of the matter. We’re talking about recalibrating the desires that led us to be so over-extended as a culture. It’s not just about culture. It’s about each one of us being responsible for our part in this problem of consumerism.
