My friend, Jim Pike, who will soon graduate from Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, OH, has posted a reflection on his group blog, Olde Cheshire Cheese, dealing with the proposal to build a casino in Gettysburg, PA. I encourage you to read his thoughts here.
I note a couple of concerns that I have about that casino. There's the relatively mundane one: It's going to be ugly and it will mar the landscape, regardless of what anyone says. And there's the greater issue: This is but one front in a war against the expanding influence of consumerism. I'll post about that in a little while.
In the meantime, read my friend's thoughts. He is so eminently worthy of attention!
