As children, most of us were captivated by the world and everything in it. Every blade of grass, every cloud, ever unidentifiable brown thing on the ground… all of it intrigued us. We wanted to know what it was. We asked the question “why”… All. The. Time.
And somewhere along the way, we lost it, and started to think of things as boring. So how did this happen, and how can we get this sense of curiosity back? Barnabas Piper and I discuss this and more in the first part of a two-part conversation on today’s episode of Reading Writers.
Also in this episode, we discuss:
- Where our wonder went;
- The soothing power of taupe; and
- What happened during Aaron’s first missions experience.
Be sure to check out Barnabas’ new book, The Curious Christian, as well as The Happy Rant, his podcast co-hosted by Ted Kluck and Ronnie Martin.
