Naked Spirituality: Just what I needed

A reader writes:

My name is xxx and I’m from Rochester, NY. I was both delighted and disappointed to see that you’re scheduled to visit here at the beginning of April. I was delighted, of course, to see that our little city rates! But I was disappointed because family and community responsibilites keep me from attending. Ah, well, maybe next time. 🙂
I wanted to to let you know how much I am enjoying Naked Spirituality. It is exactly what I needed, at just the right time. My first impulse was to do what I always do with a good book–devour it nearly whole. But I found that isn’t how this one is best enjoyed. It has to be consumed slowly, and savored. It’s so refreshing. Keep up the good work, and don’t listen to the negative voices. Not only are you saying what so many of us have been thinking, now you’re calling us to grow deeper, too. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I’m so sorry I’ll miss meeting you in person in Rochester. As you said, maybe next time – and I’m thrilled both that you’re enjoying the book and that you’re reading it slowly. It’s really a book to do and work with, not just to read and think about … as you’ll notice, about a dozen times in the book, I ask readers to put the book down and stop reading and engage in some practice with the postures or attitudes of heart that I am trying to present. It’s great to hear that this is just what you’re doing. Thanks for the encouraging words.
