I’m generally unimpressed by the term movement , which now seems to mean “advocacy by two or more people.”

But maybe, just maybe, there is something to the Small House Movement , which (according to The Economist ) “has been around for years, encouraging people to think about how much house they really need.”

It seems that people have paid no attention, but the financial crisis might now focus some minds.

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before July 1.

First Things is a proudly reader-supported enterprise. The gifts of readers like you— often of $50, $100, or $250—make articles like the one you just read possible.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
