For now I just want to note that there seems to be a connection between Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow Theory and some stuff that E.M. Bounds (1835-1913) said in his book titled, Power Through Prayer. Chapter 1 is precisely where I see the connect. I will have to explore this later, but for now just want to note this here.
*Note: While Bounds is speaking from within the context of preaching, you can just substitute whatever is your own gift, wherever he uses the term “preaching”. You’ll see what I mean if you read his Chapter 1.
