By the way, in case you are wondering, here is how I define the word "happiness" in Reordered Love, Reordered Lives:
The view of happiness I have presented in Reordered Love is significantly countercultural. Contrary to popular opinion, happiness is not a person-relative
'do your own thing' or an intense hedonistic pursuit. Rather, it is the condition of genuine human fulfillment and flourishing rooted in a relationship with God whose mercy and grace demonstrated in Jesus Christ reorders our loves and lives in righteous and virtuous ways through the Holy Sprit so that we are able to enjoy, indeed, to relish, all aspects of life and creation appropriately in him.
