“At the heart of the current moment lies a universal yearning, not to be happy or respected so much as enough—what religions call “righteous”. To ﬁll the void left by religion, many look to all sorts of everyday activities—from eating and parenting to dating and voting—for the identity, purpose, and meaning once provided on Sunday morning. In our striving, we are chasing a sense of enoughness. But it remains ever out of reach, and the eﬀort and anxiety are burning us out.” — David Zahl, Seculosity
Using his book and other sources we will examine how we use busyness, romance, parenting, technology, work, leisure, food, politics, and other areas of life to pursue the mirage of being “enough”. We will conclude with some conversation around the topics of worship, sabbath and hospitality and how a biblical, covenant community might just be a better path to fulﬁlling that universal yearning.
