Description: â€œTâ€™is a gift to be simple, tâ€™is a gift to be freeâ€¦â€ 19 th century Shaker song Money has great power in our lives. Used wisely, it is one key to accomplishing our goals, providing for our needs, and fulfilling our life purpose. In recent years, many of us ignored the wisdom of the past when it came to managing and spending our money. Credit card debt soared, savings rates plummeted, and our home equity became something to be tapped into and spent rather than a source of security in retirement. We felt an insatiable desire for more. And we found ourselves spending tomorrowâ€™s money today in order to have what we hoped would satisfy. The result of all of this was not greater happiness and satisfaction, but greater stress and anxiety. Enough is an invitation to rediscover the Bibleâ€™s wisdom when it comes to prudent financial practices.Â In these pages are found the keys to experiencing contentment, overcoming fear, and discovering joy through simplicity and generosity. This book could change your life, by changing your relationship with money. â€œWe Americans love our stuff. Weâ€™re living in a fast-paced, me-first, instant-gratification world, and itâ€™s finally catching up to us. Debt is out of control, homes are in foreclosure Â ... even banks are going out of business. What the world needs today is the message of contentment and simplicity, and thatâ€™s exactly what Pastor Adam Hamilton delivers in Enough .â€ Dave Ramsey, New York Times Best-Selling Author and Nationally Syndicated Radio Talk Show Host â€œOnce again, Adam Hamilton is leading the church; â€˜Enough is enoughâ€™ was once a Wesleyan watchword. Adam breathes new life into the Wesleyan commitment to simplicity. Amid a culture of greed and conspicuous consumption Adam calls us to a biblically based, evangelical joy of having the faith to say â€˜enough is enough.â€™â€ Bishop Will Willimon United Methodist Church, Birmingham Area â€œI pay close attention towhatever Adam Hamilton writes. His books are marked by extraordinary pastoralinsight, biblical and theological depth, courage to speak the truth, anddown-to-earth practicality. Enough comes like an antidote in the middle of a pandemic. I hope that classes,groups, couples, and individuals will use this bookâ€”and the economic crisis itaddressesâ€”as a challenge to get healthy again by deepening our discipleship inthe vital area of money and possessions.â€ Â Brian McLaren,Author/NetworkerÂ (brianmclaren.net ) Â Each week participants will: - Reassess their values, desires and needs - Learn how to begin using simple tools to evaluate their financial situation - Develop a values-based view of managing their money - Consider ways to find contentment in simpler living This book and DVD are suitable for individual reading or for small-group study in five sessions.
