Welcome to this film series with Walter Brueggemann discussing thoughts from his new book, Materiality as Resistance: Five Elements for Moral Action in the Real World. Materiality as Resistance is a textured teaching about who we are called to be in the world through the lens of loving God, loving ourselves, and loving our neighbor. Walter discusses faith and our responsibility to one another, and how churches can model collaborative social structure, and goes so far as to invite individual believers and church leadership to start considering making decisions with the neighbor and neighborhood in mind. 

The Series includes a discernment and discussion guide with practices to consider, 7 conversation films with Walter, and an accompanying visual liturgy film, Psalm 115.
