Large the 7 experiment staging your own mutiny

Jen Hatmaker didn’t consider herself rich until she saw herself through the eyes of a child living in poverty. The experience launched this mom, writer, and pastor’s wife on a spiritual journey to construct an alternative lifestyle that is not driven by contemporary consumerism. This 9-session study guides participants on a similar journey. It considers seven key areas of cultural excess such as food, media, spending, clothes and waste, and suggests radical reductions to break each one’s grip. The Leader Kit includes a member book with facilitation guide and space for written reflection, and a DVD with nine 10-15 minute video segments to accompany the book. The material is aimed a middle- and upper-class evangelicals and would work well in a women’s ministry or family ministry small group setting.
