Sunday Prayer

I read this while researching for a recent Policymic article. Diana Butler Bass' book, Christianity after Religion has been one of my favorite sources so far. Before I started the blog, I was one of those who derided the "spirituality but not religion" movement. Now I'm a big believer (and so are lots of others, according to stats).

Spirituality"... is an ancient word, to be sure, but a word that is taking on fresh dimensions of meaning in a fluid and pluralistic religious context. To say that one is "spiritual but not religious" or "spiritual and religious" is often a way of saying "I am dissatisfied with the way things are, and I want to find a new way of connecting with God, my neighbor, and my own life.
