To love someone is to nourish them with appropriate attention. In an economy that commercializes our attention, giving attention to the holy in each other on Sunday morning is a radical and transformative act. Stop “paying” attention. Instead, deepen your capacity to give and receive love, widening the circle while clarifying your values.
