Occupy this thought…

I was reading Brian McLaren’s blog this A.M.
He posted a link to another blog post entitled, “http://joeboydblog.com/2012/01/05/a-personal-confession-re-occupy-movement/
I found the perspective Joe Boyd refreshing and not a little bit convicting. While I agree with some of the objectives of the Occupy Movement in the U.S., our lifestyle in general comments loudly to the rest of the world. It seems like we are saying, “More! Give us more!” while much of the world is crying out, “Just a little! We want just a little!”
I know that I am working toward simplifying my life for the express purpose of releasing more for me to give. I would encourage others who read this, or Boyd’s post to consider doing likewise.
