Metropolitan Jonah to speak at the American Enterprise Institute on Faith in a Consumerist Society on December 6, 2011

Metropolitan Jonah

The average American income is 10 percent greater today than 30 years ago, yet the debt burden of American households has more than doubled over the same time period. How should a person of faith deal with the pressures of a consumer society? At what point does materialism begin to corrupt? How does our faith influence our pursuit of material prosperity?

In a keynote address, the Orthodox Church in America’s Metropolitan Jonah, Archbishop of Washington and Metropolitan of All America and Canada, will address these questions and more, providing insight into how persons of faith might deal with the challenges brought by the consumer age. A pizza dinner will be provided.
