The Religion of Technology, Work, and Leisure with Special Guest David Zahl

Episode 378 Show Notes 

From the Show

There's plenty of room at the foot of the cross, my friends. This is not another thing for you to feel guilty about. You already feel guilty. That's what the book is trying to say. It's where do we go with that guilt. Do we double down on our careers? And I get that there are so many economic realties that are tough. I was just hearing about the housing market in souther California, and I get it. I just don't think that's all that going on. There is also a sense in which we are looking to these things for what only God can provide.

—David Zahl
