Countdown: Day 42

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.
What do people mean when they say, “I’m spiritual, but not religious”?

First, when people say ‘I’m spiritual’, they mean that secular science, politics and economics don’t have all the answers for them. They believe life has a sacred dimension that can’t be reduced to formulas, rules and numbers. They believe we have hungers that can’t be fed by facts alone, votes alone, or even the quasi-religious ‘invisible hand of the market’ alone. (Brian D. McLaren, Naked Spirituality: A Life with God in Twelve Simple Words. HarperOne, 2011, Chapter 2)
