--------------------------------------------------------------
Performance artist and evangelist Reverend Billy shifts his focus from the evils of consumerism to the crisis facing planet Earth. Anchored by a spirited mixture of original gospel music, Reverend Billy's impassioned sermons, and the sainting of activists and provocateurs, The Church of Earthalujah delivers an experience that is part theater piece, part church service and wholly inspirational! The Church transcends parody in favor of a passionate humanism that speaks to growing public anxiety in the face of ever-deadlier climate catastrophes and impotent leadership from politicians, NGOs and corporate CEOs. 

Past saints include Justin Bond, Penny Arcade, Guillermo Gomez-Pena, Barbara Ehrenreich, Laura Flanders, Chris Hedges, Benjamin Barber, Tim DeChristopher, Antrim Caskey & Mike Roselle, Douglas Rushkoff, Bertha Lewis, and The Yes Men.

“It’s an act, a kind of performance art, almost a form of religion.” -New York Times 

“... the passion that is evident in the Stop Shopping Gospel Choir is contagious and admirable. Many Christian churches could learn a few things from this secular outfit.” -Christianity Today
