Are there dangers for people who feel that to live their spirituality they do not need to be involved with a community?
A Jesuit priest, James Martin, contributor to an article on CNN today, thinks so. In referring to those who make this choice he uses words like complacent, self-centered, lazy.
What do you think?
My question is, can people consider themselves SBNR and still gather together for spiritual practices, learning, and even ritual?
Sanctuary Without Walls came into being because wherever two or more are gathered, our inner sparks can be fanned into brightness simply through the presence of others. Gathering together, even though we may feel that we are more “spiritual” than “religious,” offers us an invitation to stretch who we are, examine new ideas, form bonds, and encourage one another in our work, play, and creativity in the wider world.
Yet some people feel they simply do not want or need such a community.
