Destroying our planet

A little out of date but still very useful. We are destroying our world whether we are conscious about it or not. We all are part of these!

Some key words to look for when watching the video
  • Trashing the planet,
  • exploitation of natural resources and third world countries
  • 1/3 of the planets natural resources is gone, 40% of water is undrinkable
  • making 30% of the planets waste

College or Prison

In the United States, two institutions guide teenagers on the journey to adulthood: college and prison. Sociologist Alice Goffman spent six years in a troubled Philadelphia neighborhood and saw first-hand how teenagers of African-American and Latino backgrounds are funneled down the path to prison — sometimes starting with relatively minor infractions. In an impassioned talk she asks, “Why are we offering only handcuffs and jail time?”

This video should help you understand more of the inequality. Continue reading and educating yourself because that is the only way to change.

Is Fashion Important?

Fashion can be art. It is psychology, sociology, history, identity (religion, sexuality, gender), politics, and commerce. It is the material of the everyday and a vehicle for profound human performance; shelter and superfluity. Fashion—garmenture—is, literally, significant. So why is it so hard to talk about?...When your favorite childhood game is dress up and you grow up in a feminist household that sees fashion as capitalist frivolity, when that game follows you, obsessively, into adulthood, a crisis is inevitable; there still exists this notion of being “too smart for fashion.”
We are at a point in cultural history when once disparate mediums and fields of production are collapsing into each other. We look at paintings on screens and print digital photographs onto t-shirts. Film, music, literature, painting, sculpture, photography, along with “new media”—like the blogroll or interactive video, even holograms—are all just avenues, often cofunctioning avenues, used to 1. explore thought, 2. create beauty, and 3. accrue capital. Fashion is part of this network. Think artist collaborations, museum exhibitions, filmic costume design, and the rise of the fashion film. And yet, outside of the academy (where the study of fashion is flourishing), fashion still has trouble with the “explore thought” part. We don’t yet have much in the way of a popular critical discourse on fashion. It’s about time we integrate fashion into our elitist tradition of cultural criticism.
How can we write and think critically about fashion? And can we imagine new ways of looking at it?

Clothing is close, but far. Natural, but supernatural. Physical, but spiritual.

There is no dearth of reflection and response from the Christian community on film, music, or food. We have great organizations, institutions, magazines, programs, and conferences that address these issues. We are well attuned to the fact that we should be mindful of the things that we set before our eyes, what we introduce to our ears, and we grant to our mouth and stomach.
Yet something is missing. Something fundamental.
That which is close to us, can often be far. That which is natural for us to think and talk about, can become supernatural. That which is physical for us, can be spiritual if we paid attention.
Clothing is close, but far. Natural, but supernatural. Physical, but spiritual.
Putting on clothing ranks as one of the most routine, mundane, unreflective practices we engage in. The only time we really consider it is in light of the weather or the occasion. At least that gets us thinking about it. But, like all the other practices we engage in—eating breakfast or driving to work—we should be thinking carefully and consistently about it. How should a Christian think about the fabric they put on their back?
What we wear on our bodies enables and conditions our experience of space and time. But perhaps more importantly, what we wear on our bodies can be an obedient and worshipful response to these experiences of space and time and who we encounter in these experiences. Fashion, in the narrowest sense of the word, can be an act of worship.
Fashion implies covering, but it certainly cannot be reduced to it. Covering yourself can be done subconsciously, unintentionally, impulsively, quickly. You cover yourself to get on with other more significant and meaningful tasks. You cover yourself to avoid incarceration. Covering yourself is an exercise in utilitarianism. Most Christians cover themselves.
Fashion, on the other hand, is an exercise in virtue. Fashion requires consciousness, intentionality, meditation, and time. Fashion assumes awareness and deliberation. It assumes the category of beauty and the discipline of aesthetics. It assumes that others are intentional about what they wear and why they wear it. It assumes the possibility and importance of style. It understands the concept of adornment. Few Christians fashion themselves.
There are biological, social, economic, and political issues that inform when, how, and to what degree Christians can and should fashion themselves. But this shouldn’t give us incentive to brush fashion aside as if its superfluous or peripheral to the Christian life. Truth be told, God cares about what we wear—have you read Leviticus? True, God caresthat we wear. But he also cares about what we wear.
God could have covered Adam and Eve with fig leaves. Instead, he fashioned them with animal skin.
How we cover and adorn our bodies is linked with our life of worship. What we wear is reflective of our perception of God’s presence and action in the world. If we don’t think God is redeeming this world, we won’t have any incentive to consider what we should wear here-and-now. Likewise, if we don’t think God cares about how we present ourselves before him and others through our material goods, we won’t have any incentive to acquire or develop these goods for our own purposes or market and produce them for others.
We experience God’s goodness and glory in this theatre of creation so that we may respond back in gratitude and worship with the gifts we have been given. We are invited to participate in adorning God’s creation, as he has already done, through our lyrics, paintbrushes, screenplays, choreography, and fabrics. Adorning our bodies is on par with adorning our museums, churches, homes, schools, and the like.
It’s time for a little more ration for fashion. Fashion, too, is and can be an exercise in Christian obedience and worship.

I think the purpose of everything is doing things with purpose and conviction. What do you think?
