We live in the second half of the second decade of the 21st century. In this era, our worldview is defined by the word "instant."
No need to travel to a library. We have instant access to information.
No waiting to develop photos. We have them instantly on our phones.
No waiting to see a friend 1,000 miles a way. Facetime them instantly.
No waiting to reorder toilet paper. Push the button and instantly Amazon will ship. Maybe even by drone.
We live for the moment.
We want things immediately.
We expect results now.
We ride the 24 news cycle and swipe through our friends' feeds - all streaming instantly.
But if we only live in the moment, we miss out on a worldview that the faithful have had for millennia.
