Your basket is empty.
Because you deserve it
We enjoy an unprecedented choice of consumer goods. Cars, clothes, accessories, music and electronics - especially computers and mobile phones - are available in a greater range of forms than ever before. This isn't a bad thing in its own right. God created a physical world, and using what he has given us is a part of living in it.
But something else has happened along the way. Buying and acquiring new things isn't just about possession any more. It's about identity. It's how we feel good about ourselves, how we define ourselves and understand our place in the world.
Reality Checkpoint complete film
A day in the life of young graduate Dave leads to encounters with the downside of two major philosophies at the personal level (individualism and consumerism) and two dominant ideologies at society level (capitalism and statism). After these four sketches the actors discuss an alternative way of thinking about society - one which puts relationships first.
We have made this film as a way of introducing Relational Thinking to new audiences. This is the framework which Jubilee Centre and its sister organisations (especially Relationships Foundation and Relationships Global) have developed over the years to translate the biblical vision for society into the secular, pluralistic context of public life in the 21st century.
