In a choir, when everything is perfect, there is an overtone – a note that you can hear that no one is actually singing.
Sometimes, when you listen, you can hear an overtone among the chorus of God’s messengers.
Today, that word is “Simplicity”.
Within the next few weeks, there are three books coming out on this theme.
- Less Clutter, Less Noise by Kem Meyer
- Clutter-Free Christianity by Robert Jeffress
- Deliberate Simplicity by Dave Browning
The interesting part is that all three are about completely different parts of the Kingdom.
- Kem works for Granger Community Church, and is passionate about making church communication simple (anyway that’s what I’ve been getting from her blog over the last two years).
- Jeffress’ book is directed at the individual. “When did the Christian life become so complicated?”
- Browning’s book is about making the church simple.
I am attempting to get on the blog tour for all three books. We will be looking at Jeffress’ book the week of March 30.
In a world where excess has led us down a path of mayhem, simplicity is the obvious but difficult response. One of the spiritual disciplines is simplicity.
Where does the thought of simplicity lead you today?
