Countdown: Day 18

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.

And just as addiction ultimately leads through insanity to misery and even death as the addict ‘hits bottom’, an economy driven by ingratitude – whether global, national, family or personal – races through overextension towards collapse. That’s why gratitude is important, not just as a personal practice, but also as a group practice: it is a kind of immunization against both personal and corporate addiction. (Brian D. McLaren, Naked Spirituality: A Life with God in Twelve Simple Words. HarperOne, 2011, Chapter 6)
