In October 2008, The Mennonite published “Do You Have Pleonexia?” by Valerie Weaver-Zercher. The article discusses the desire for consumption specifically within the Mennonite church. Pleonexia is a Greek word which is described by ethicist John Haughey as “a passion for more” and Weaver-Zercher suggests that the problem is more than individualistic; it is nation-wide and therefore “our” problem. She says, “Only when we are aware of the cravings behind our consumption can we learn to look in places more likely to provide their fulfillment—such as church community, the natural world or worship—than things that moth and rust destroy.”
