Distracting Ourselves to Death
We are losing the capacity for attention. By which I mean the ability to focus on something and to think about it. And if we lose that ability, how then is God going to be the central, organizing thing in our lives? How are we going to become God-centered in our thoughts if we are fragmented in our thoughts? And God-honoring in our lives, if in fact our lives are just bits and pieces of information? That’s the problem.
A great interview by Tony Reinke at Desiring God with David Wells and Arthur Hunt. There’s also a good summary if you don’t want to listen to the whole thing.
