Countdown: Day 34

Naked Spirituality will go on sale on March 15. Between now and then, I’ll share a short quote from the book. I hope you’ll pass on the ones you find most meaningful.

How can we nourish a naked life with God that is rich in spiritual experience, with or without dramatic experiences? On this question both our ancient religious traditions and our contemporary theories of education and human development agree: a way of life is formed by practices. By practices, we mean doable habits or rhythms that transform us, rewiring our brains, restoring our inner ecology, renovating our inner architecture, expanding our capacities. We mean actions within our power that help us become capable of things currently beyond our power. (Brian D. McLaren, Naked Spirituality: A Life with God in Twelve Simple Words. HarperOne, 2011, Chapter 3)
