Countdown: Day 30

Spring is an amazing mixture of fragility and vitality. Each new sprout is delicate, but what can compare with the combined power of millions of leaves bursting out, drawing energy from the sun? The first season of the spiritual life similarly combines tenderness and toughness as tiny seeds sprout and display the magnificent power of life and growth. (Brian D. McLaren, Naked Spirituality: A Life with God in Twelve Simple Words. HarperOne, 2011, Simplicity)

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.
