We have inherited an ideology that growth is always good, more is better, and that’s how we know God is blessing us. But perhaps we ought to question this assumption. Today we talk with pastor and author Chris Nye about our addiction to accumulation, how it harms our souls, and how to pursue true spiritual abundance instead.
Chris is a pastor, writer, and sometimes professor living in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife, Ali. His writings have appeared in The Washington Post, Christianity Today, RELEVANT Magazine, and other publications. He recently authored Less of More: Pursuing Spiritual Abundance in a World of Never Enough.
Currently, Chris serves as a pastor for teaching and leadership development at Awakening Church, a faith community in the Silicon Valley.
