Episode 1 :: Getting Acquainted

We at Simple Living Works! believe that simple living really does work! Voluntary Simplicity, choosing to live simpler lives, is a faithful, satisfying and effective lifestyle. It is not a list rules, nor living on the cheap. It avoids fads, convenience and deprivation. We believe in abundance, that there’s enough for everybody’s needs, not anybody’s greed. Contemporary faith-based simple living is guided by the five Life Standards of Living More with Less, the classic by Doris Janzen Longacre. I’ll discuss these standards in the next episode.

The Mission of SLW! is “equipping people of faith to 1. challenge consumerism2. live justly and 3. celebrate responsibly.” The three parts of our Mission are elaborated in text and video at these links. We extend the mission and resources of the non-profit organization Alternatives, which served from 1973-2011.

After a short series of getting-acquainted episodes, we intend to produce a half-hour podcast twice a month, hopefully educational and inspiring for you, your family and your congregation or group.
