Description

People want to grow - to mature, not only to age. Faith, we're told by the apostle Paul, allows growth in love and insight that, in turn, produce right action and goodness (Philippians 1:9-11). Susan considers growth in faith in light of our culture's dominant disorders of attention and attachment, significant challenges to love that overflows with knowledge and full insight. Extreme manifestations of these conditions are psychiatric, but attention and attachment difficulties permeate the culture. God's grace, too, permeates our world, allowing for the cultivation of ordered attention and attachment.
