COLLEGE PARK, MD –
It is easy for us to fall into a malaise of boredom – boredom that can corner you when you least expect it and convince you there is no way out.
Here I do not mean boredom as having a lack of motions to go through. By that account, we may be the least bored people on planet earth. There is always something to busy us and distract us from the real work we’re here to do.
What I mean by boredom is more along the lines of spiritual boredom. In our “busy” lives, many of us are not experiencing meaning or satisfaction. We’re left with plenty of things to do, but a dearth of rewarding things to do.
