So many of us are overwhelmed by daily demands – too many bills, not enough money, long work hours, not enough sleep, too many commitments, and not enough time for family, friends and God. In our desperate search for “the good life,” we seem to have forgotten what is truly important. We long for a life more fulfilling and joyful. Break Forth Into Joy! helps us take a critical look at our lifestyle choices and the shape our lives have taken. It helps us examine our search for fulfillment and security through material possessions, and reminds us of biblical teachings on wealth and poverty. We realize how our obsession with buying and owning affects the Earth, other people and the human spirit. By sharing feelings, thoughts and practical ideas from a variety of people who struggle to live faithfully in the consumer society, this video calls us toward a lifestyle that is more fulfilling and joyful.
