This coming Sunday I’ll be speaking on the line in Lennon’s Imagine when he said, “Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can, nothing to kill or die for, a brotherhood of man.”
Is money the root of all evil (as the Bible is often misquoted as saying?).
Are poor people in some sense better off?
Would the world be better if they just gave everyone the same, whether a little or a lot?
How long would that system last?
One of my readings is the famous story of the ‘Rich Young Ruler.’ He appears in all three of the Synoptic gospels, went away from Jesus sad, because he had a lot of money. Does more make you miserable?
Your thoughts and ideas appreciated, as I try to gather mine.
