Countdown: Day 19

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.

Economists tabulate the gross domestic product, but whose spreadsheet measures the gross domestic destruct? – the losses extracted in advance from our great-grandchildren when wild elephants, giraffes, thrushes, tortoises, sea turtles, chimpanzees, horseshoe crabs and swordfish have gone the way of the dodo? (Brian D. McLaren, Naked Spirituality: A Life with God in Twelve Simple Words. HarperOne, 2011, Chapter 6)
