The Kingdom of Rest
For the last century and a half, everything has just been getting faster and faster, and a lot of it has done us a lot of good, true. But, it seems we’ve reached a place now of diminishing returns. Our technologies haven’t saved time, they’ve compressed and then consumed it. And the 40-hour work week hasn’t become 30 or 20; it’s become 50 and 60 and more! Besides, it’s not just leisure and diversion and distraction that we need anyway. What we need so desperately is redemptive rest!
