In this second episode of our "Welcome Your Life" series, we look at a vital, but often neglected, aspect of a healthy spirituality - wonder. As adults we tend to lose that unfiltered amazement of the world we had as children. Our agendas take over instead because we think wonder is a luxury we can no longer afford. But could it be that what we seem to have lost in our adult lives has never left us? And that recapturing wonder can reconnect us with what's always been most essential to us?
We'll visit with Lacy Finn Borgo and Steph Cheung to help us see why we've lost wonder and how to recover it.
Lacy is the author of Spiritual Conversations with Children and has other books in print and on the way related to spirituality and children. Find out more about her work at Good Dirt Ministries. Steph is on staff with InterVarsity.
