Ever wonder what happens to church rummage sale leftovers after they get dropped off at a local donation center? If so, you’re not alone.
Dozens of women recently participated in a stimulating online exchange around the second Lutheran Ladies’ Book Club pick: Secondhand: Travels in the New Global Garage Sale, and in this book club recap episode of the podcast, Sarah, Erin, Bri, and Rachel take their own turn at discussing and digesting some of the many compelling facts and insights found in Adam Minter’s book.
Why is “stuff” so key to our sense of identity? Why do we want so badly for other people to value our castoffs? How might our buying and purging choices today potentially either bless or burden someone half a world away from us? And how can taking an honest look at our relationship with our belongings (and with consumer goods in general) help us better learn to trust in God for everything?
At the end of the episode, they announce the next Lutheran Ladies’ Book Club’s pick: Katherine Patterson’s young-adult novel Jacob Have I Loved.
