ON THIS EPISODE
Whether it’s living a meaningful life with less, only keeping things that spark joy, or downsizing to a tiny house, the movement of minimalism has been growing in popularity.
You often even hear conversion stories about how people came to become minimalists. They were unhappy with life, searching for meaning. Then they discovered minimalism and embraced it, and now they live lives of meaning, purpose, and joy. It’s honestly pretty compelling.
But where does minimalism fit in with the Christian faith? Are minimalism and Christianity congruent at all? And if so, in what ways?
In this episode of the podcast, we explore what minimalism is, its origins, its values, and where those values intersect with our faith in order to help us have a more healthy relationship with our stuff.
