I have been challenged, shaken, stirred and much more through reading Freedom of Simplicity by Richard Foster.
This is certainly going down as one of the books that is going to (hopefully) shape and define and change me! I’m not an avid reader, and I can possibly count on one hand the books that I will read and re-read because they are such gems! Although I have finished reading it there’s still a lot more that I need to ponder, process and pray about it.
If you are a reader, or even if you aren’t a reader, why not give it a try!
“Christian simplicity frees us from this modern mania. It brings sanity to our compulsive extravagance, and peace to our frantic spirit. It liberates us from what William Penn called ‘cumber.’ It allows us to see material things for what they are — goods to enhance life, not to oppress life. People once again become more important than possessions. Simplicity enables us to live lives of integrity in the face of the terrible realities of our global village . . .”
