Fried may seem like an innocuous enough topic since so many of us use it these days to describe our frenzied, speed-oriented, exhausted state of mind. But innocuous it is not. Feeling fried is an alarm that life has veered seriously off course. It’s shorthand for losing our way individually and culturally in a world spinning so fast that it feels like we’re about to be launched into outer space. I’ve been there and feel a strong calling to share what I’ve learned about revival with everyone in these uncertain, quickly changing, speed-driven times.
