The difference between leisure and luxury, and a giveaway of The Evangelical Imagination!
Retreats were a part of my upbringing and I heartily agree that it's necessary to slow down and refocus from time to time. Our goals and visions for personal growth change and reflect stages in life. It may be surprising or not but just listening to the daily news is enough to receive a subconscious dose of negativity!
Looking forward to The Evangelical Imagination, and happy to pay for it. I've been reading everything in sight trying to understand this phenomenon and perhaps this will finally explain it. I do hope there's an audio book version, that's how I mainly keep up. And thank you for the strategy of retreat, I am so grateful I opened this email today!
