It’s worth your time: Christine explains the cultural conflict we are up against in promoting the heart-led way. And she’s quite right that things are turning around, so it’s all the more critical that we take full advantage of it. We have been blessed with this rich opportunity to bring this to life and accelerate the process for at least some people.
We see evidence in Scripture that, even when a culture is built on heart-led assumptions, not everyone lives that way. You cannot force it down anyone’s throat; it simply doesn’t work like that. Nor is is the kind of thing we might turn into a good epic saga of some multi-generational secret society searching out prospects, as if we could gin up some kind of test to identify them. What we should expect to see is neither a universal manifestation in all, nor something rare and selective.
But as Christine notes, there are already a great many people around us experiencing a sensory heart who need only the nurture to know it’s normal. If you want a place to start, look for the marginalized, those who know they don’t belong. We are called to reach out to those souls caught between the dying heart-less world and a heart-led world yet to be born. You heart will tell you who they are; learn to listen.
