Countdown: Day 26

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.

To plug into the naked here, sometimes we need to unplug from the thousand distractions and demands that keep us not-here in fantasy or render us only half-here in anxiety. To awaken to non-virtual reality, we may need to unplug from the video game or website. To resituate ourselves in the down-to-earth presence of God, we may need to unplug from our heady -isms, whether economic, political, or even theological. (Brian D. McLaren, Naked Spirituality: A Life with God in Twelve Simple Words. HarperOne, 2011, Chapter 4)
