18:24 | May 28, 2021

Episodes Notes

With the success of Marie Kondo, a new Netflix documentary, and hundreds of blogs and YouTube videos on minimalism, it’s clear that it is more than just a trend. In a time of climate change and a pandemic, people are looking for new ways to live well and more meaningful lives, and minimalism is meeting that need.

Consuming less may already be an environmental and personal priority, but Becca Ehrlich contends that minimalism can be much more. In her new book, Christian Minimalism: Simple Steps for Abundant Living, she explores the direct connection between minimalism and our faith journey.

Christian Minimalism cuts through our culture’s insistence about consumerism and challenges basic assumptions about our lifestyles, inviting us into a life free of physical, spiritual, and emotional clutter. 

Today on Connections, Becca talks a bit about her journey to becoming a Christian minimalist, how it has impacted her faith and the connection between minimalism and our faith.
