I am thinking about simple living today. In an earlier thread I asked, “How much of the need for [home] protection is a reflection of socio-economic disparities?” I suggested, “Another way to protect our homes is through modest living.”
Then, as providence would have it, I came across some new research from George Barna that suggested many Americans aspire to simple living. So I went websurfing and came across the Simple Living Manifesto and many other articles and sites.
What are your thoughts on living more simply? I think simple living is something many of us aspire to, but I am not so sure we always get there. I enjoyed the book Simple Church for instance, but only the other day I was voicing some concerns with ministry complexity. We’re not there yet. I’m not there yet. My life is complex. It takes energy to simplify. Where would you like to simplify your life? How have you simplified your life already?
