Great article from Kate Harris,??Executive Director of the?Washington Institute for Faith, Vocation, and Culture, writes about the issue of work-life balance. ?
The truth is we all long to have things set right, to shake out, to settle down.?Accepting that in Christ we are most likely to experience these things in the midst of?even through?relationships and circumstances that feel disparate, extreme, or weighty, is a realistic and helpful truth…despite its?counter-intuitive?feel. At the end of?the day, we are not seeking a balanced life so much as a faithful life. And a faithful life mirrors Christ. It reflects a God who bore complexity and constraint, pain and limitation, rather than a God who merely kept it all in check.
Harris argues convincingly that, consistent with the life of Christ, coherence and sustainability are better descriptors or goals for Christian living.
