Yesterday, I listened to Terry Gross interview Retired Bishop Gene Robinson (Episcopal.) Bishop Robinson is an interesting figure for many reasons, but he said something that stopped me in my tracks. I can’t quote him precisely, but here’s a paraphrase:
Nowadays a lot of people say they are “spiritual but not religious.” I think that what happens is that they come to synagogue or mosque or church looking for God and instead what they find is religion. We need to do something about that.
Where do you find God? Where have you not found God?
