I came across this video a few weeks ago, very well done. The Great Recession has affected most of us. I’ve spoken to very few churches that haven’t had to make cuts. This satirical video very clearly illustrates the issue were facing in our country. It’s easy to point fingers at how sloppy our government has been, but most of us are to blame as well. When most of the population is carrying thousands in consumer debt, saving next to nothing yet still enjoying all the perks of life… it’s no wonder our nation’s financial situation is what it is.

In January, Gateway has been doing a series called Recovery Road. Really it’s just a four week sereis illustrating many of the principles from Financial Peace University. In February, we’re launching dozens of FPU classes to hopefully make a difference in the lives of people who need to make changes.
