Af-flu-en-za n. 1. The bloated, sluggish and unfulfilled feeling that results from efforts to keep up with the Joneses. 2. An epidemic of stress, overwork, waste and indebtedness caused by dogged pursuit of the American Dream. 3. A spiritual illness that Jesus counsels his followers to avoid at all costs As Westerners, we live in a society of unprecedented affluence, a culture of luxury that teaches us to buy, spend, and consume from early on. Yet Jesus warns his followers "Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions" (Luke 12.15). How do we live in a world that says luxury, leisure and consumption are the means to lasting happiness?
