We live in a frenetic age of unrealistic expectations, fostered by unrelenting voices both outside and inside of us. Through subtle and not so subtle forces we are constantly expected to do more and be more. Exhaustion, shame, and anxiety pervade, and all too often they also shape the church’s life. In this context, one of the great gifts Christians can give the world is to rediscover a healthy vision of what it means to be truly human, bringing us back to a more realistic and gracious view of discipleship.
