Noelle Mering is a Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center where she co-directs EPPC’s Theology of Home Project. She is the author of the upcoming book, Awake, Not Woke: A Christian Response to the Cult of Progressive Ideology (TAN Books, May 2021).
On any given day it is difficult to not get caught up in our consumerist culture. It can be even harder to avoid during Christmas when arguably the glorification of buying and selling is at its peak. As Catholics we understand that Christmas is so much more than gifts. It is a time of penance, joyous anticipation, and preparation for the great Christmas feast. This does not mean that Christians should not participate in the marketplace. It should, however, encourage us to reflect on how we participate and our overall attitude towards material goods and how we use them.
In this spirit, we have put together a panel that will explore what it means to live liturgically, how we can be more intentional consumers, and why a theology of the home matters. Our panelist will also provide a gift guide full of their favorite products that are not only beautiful and intentional but Christ centered.
