Spiritual Rhythms of Life for Today

If spirituality can mean anything, it means nothing. Of course there are plenty of sources of spiritual non-sense around, but so much today that is passed off as spiritual is coming out of Christian impoverishment. Woe! Authoritarian hypocrisy wielded by those in power steps on the stage and seeks to control people through performance, superficiality and manipulation. Many are having none of it, others are feed up. Can’t say I blame ‘em. Redrawing the boundaries for the meaning of ‘spiritual’ is a crucial task for our understanding of living spirituality. We best begin at home and the sooner the better. If you’re interested in my take on this, read more widely on this blog, which attempts to make a start.
