Can you be both "religious" and "spiritual"? Of course! In the Sunday morning service at Unity, we sing the Lord's Prayer and follow with a brief time of meditation before the lesson.
However you choose to define your practice of personal growth and spiritual enlightenment, know that Divine Love and Wisdom are your constant companions upon the path that leads to the One and that all paths (whether described as spiritual or as religious) have good in them.
REV. JERI LINN
I generally avoid CNN when looking for objective truth, regarding spiritual matters in particular. But I must say that John Blake's June 4 article was refreshing, candid and helpful. As I engage in spiritual conversations with the good people of Montrose, everyone, it seems, calls themselves — spiritual but not religious. I humbly confess I find this label increasingly irritating. That is why I am delighted this timely question has been posed.
