Countdown: ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!

On March 15, Naked Spirituality will go on sale. I'll share a short quote from the book each day until then. I hope you'll tweet or otherwise pass on the ones you find most meaningful.

There is, to be sure, an opposite kind of blindness, where people freely confess social sins of racism, chauvinism, homophobia and consumerism, but keep their personal sins in the closet – whether it’s a cruel way of treating one’s spouse, neglect of one’s children, drinking too much, sexually harassing subordinates, or whatever. And to be sure, nearly all of us are willing to confess sins in general; after all, who wants to appear so arrogant as to claim perfection? But we hesitate a bit more when things start getting specific – socially or personally, when we feel that the real ‘me’ or the real ‘us’ may be brought out of the closet and into the light – exposing us as less holy than we normally try to appear.
