I think children and indeed adults have the expectation that they have a right to be entertained. It is almost as if it is the government's fault that they are bored.' ~Antony Sutch
Why are so many people seemingly bored these days? Technology has created endless possibilities. You can store thousands of songs into a tiny ipod. Mobile phones are internet linked with access to any information we want. Yet it seems we are bored. The underlying cause must be deeper. There seems to be no connection today with anything spiritual in our lives. Spirituality connects us with something deeper and lasting. But sadly we are loosing that connection. We don't know how to feed our minds and hearts with something substantial. But it's not too late to find ways and means that will bring our lives meaning and fulfilment. Am I bored with life? Am I looking for something deeper? Can I make a little room for God during these weeks of Advent?
