Charles Eisenstein, the gift economy part 1


On the 19th July 2012 at the Moot Community of the Guild Church of St Mary Aldermary in the City of London and in front of a packed crowd, Charles Eisenstein explores the theme of developing a gift economy drawing on his writings and his most recent book, Sacred Economics. This is the first of two podcast recordings.

Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth. Today, these trends have reached their extreme – but in the wake of their collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.

The views expressed in this podcast are not necessarily the views of the Moot Community or the Guild Church of St Mary Aldermary. In a world facing significant threats and questions, Charles Eisenstein contributes his thinking into the public arena.

The Challenge of the Cross by Christos Bousoulas


In this podcast of the homily of the Moot Eucharist on the 16th September 2012 in the Guild Church of St Mary Aldermary, Christos Bousoulas explores the implications and the call of the Cross on the faith and practice of Christianity. Drawing on his Greek Orthodox faith and the Gospel text of Mark 8: 27-38, Christos unpacks the implication of following Jesus and our call to carry our own cross, which is the call to striving against the ego to live a better way.

Christos is part of the new Host Cafe Team of the Moot Community, at the Guild Church of St Mary Aldermary, which is a new initiative to promote hospitality as an expression of mission and ministry of the Christian faith.
