“We assume that if something can be done at all, it can be done quickly and efficiently. Our attention spans have been conditioned by thirty second commercials….There is a great market for religious experience in our world; there is little inclination to sign up for a long apprenticeship in what earlier generations of Christians called holiness.”
— Eugene Peterson in A Long Obedience in the Same Direction
