Thursday Reflection for Week 8

We discussed Lasn and Linthicum (again) in class on Thursday. In my group one thing that really struck me was that without God, all of this transformational stuff is utterly groundless. Where is hope without some sense that this reality is not all that there is? Hope is lost without God, and so it is sad to think that people like Lasn are striving for nothing, really. They are just blowing smoke in light of the bigger picture. Those like Lasn need to come into dialogue with people embodying kingdom principles in order to make their activism complete, and we could learn much from those like Adbusters. I wonder what it would be like to get Claiborne and Lasn together in the same room...
