Sunday, December 5, 1:30 – 4:00 pm, Albany Library, Edith Stone Room
Transition Albany presents a showing of the outrageous film What Would Jesus Buy? and a discussion of worthwhile alternatives to the holiday shopping frenzy.
Follow the adventures of “Reverend Billy” and his dancing, singing “Stop Shopping Gospel Choir” in this hilarious documentary with a serious message. How do you save people from crappy gifts and eternal debt? By caroling with the choir as they joyfully belt out lyrics like these: “Squeeze our fat in Gap Apparel/Fa la la la la, la la la la…”
Full of surprises, like a credit card “exorcism” and a makeshift confessional for people to confess their shopping “sins,” this eco-minded documentary is a timely reminder that there’s more to the holidays than buying more stuff.
Following the movie, we’ll talk about creative, worthwhile alternatives to frenzied shopping, alternatives that even include supporting local stores on Solano Avenue!
Monday, December 20, 6:30 – 9:00 pm
