Some MennoNerds gathered for a panel to discuss topics of simplicity and sustainability. In this first half of the panel, they covered topics like:

  • defining simplicity
  • biblical arguments for the need of simplicity
  • biblical arguments for the need of environmental sustainability and creation care
  • whether Christianity should be seen as an anthropocentric religion, i.e. how do we deal with ideas like having dominion over the Earth?

In the second half, they will continue the conversation with ideas like the community of goods and the relationship between living simply and alleviating poverty.

Along with the second half, we will be publishing follow-up reaction videos from other MennoNerds, including some who wanted to participate in the panel but unfortunately had to withdraw.
