Five o’clock is a mini-TGIF, no matter the day, and any sense of spiritual discipline or Christ-centeredness vaporizes into the desperate desire for quiet, a scotch and soda, and some banal Netflix series. Happy hour is the off-switch of work and the on-switch of leisure. “I’ve done well today. I’ve worked hard. I’ve given my max … and now I’m tapped. I’m done. I’m out.”

I’m not denying the need for genuine rest or “recharging your batteries” or “letting your hair down.” But the challenge of living with the Spirit is real in both the workplace (the morning and afternoon business of your life) and the home (the space after the door closes on the world).

How can we sustain our spiritual life at the end of the day?
