At the heart of any search for meaning lie several basic questions that have spurred seekers throughout the ages: Who am I? Where did I come from? Where am I going? How shall I live, and why? Rabbi Rami Shapiro has addressed these questions with wisdom from the world’s sacred and philosophical teachings and his own illuminating commentary, enhanced by Eknath Easwaran’s practice of “Passage Meditation, to create a ‘bible’ for the spiritually independent.”

Book Review: Pilgrimage—the Sacred Art: Journey to the Center of the Heart

The Sacred Art of Hospitality interview with Nanette Sawyer

Hospitality is all the rage in communities coast to coast this year, in part because we are approaching the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s declaration of a national Thanksgiving. But what is hospitality? Emily Post? Serving tea? A suite at a convention with mixed drinks? Where do we turn to rediscover the spiritual core of hospitality?

The Tom Stella Interview: ‘Finding God Beyond Religion’

To clarify his message, Tom Stella is not an atheist. In fact, you’ll find in today’s interview with Read The Spirit Editor David Crumm that Tom considers himself a Christian. But, he also describes his concept of God, now, as a powerful sense of a Spirit within the world and within all of us. He says his theology is much like that of retired Bishop John Spong, who we also interviewed recently. Stella’s opening lines in this book quote the Muslim-Sufi mystic Rumi inviting “us to leave behind the narrow notion of religion understood as moral teachings and to enter the field where spiritual seekers gather.” That “field” does not try to impose traditional doctrines, Stella explains.

Spiritual cul-de-sac: How the church fails the divorced by Carolyne Call

I never expected to be a divorce statistic. I confess that I clung to a particular and private hubris: I thought that because my husband and I were ordained, we were immune to divorce. After all, didn’t I as a pastor understand the spiritual aspects of marriage better than most? Surely my faith life was such that my marriage could not fail.

The Presbyterian Outlook
Book Review: Men Pray: Voices of Strength, Faith, Healing, Hope and Courage

Men are largely absent from the church; yet men still lead the majority of congregations. It’s a pattern than began many years ago and has only increased. This pattern of absence from a spiritual community, one might conclude, has led to the kinds of destructive moral behavior that occurs with greater frequency in men. Some have said semiseriously that we ought to replace all the men in leadership with women. Yet, neither that solution nor the pattern reveal the deep spiritual hunger that abides for men who are showing up in worshipping communities.
