James Houston (Regent College) suggests that busyness is the narcotic of the soul — a form of moral depletion. Bruce Hindmarsh points out that the great figures of Christian spirituality were no less “busy” than us, but nonetheless practiced a different, more contemplative way of life. Moderated by Steve Porter (CCT Associate Director).
