The Roof Might Cave In

For some people, the quest for spirituality is as natural as breathing. Great thinkers, including Albert Einstein for instance, have believed that humankind's quest for spirituality is hardwired into our very humanness. Great thinkers believe we need spirituality.

Others, however (in particular those who have left a childhood faith), may believe “the roof will cave in” if they return to a church, synagogue, or mosque. They have a long-standing aversion to organized religion and have gotten along “fine” without it. This may well be for them. However, spirituality encompasses more than attending services in one of the world's major religions. Many people's faiths are a “hodgepodge” of beliefs and practices culled from everything from the world's major religions to some New Age theories to 12-step programs. We know people who haven't attended a church service in 20 years who still believe fiercely in guardian angels, for instance. So the quest for spirituality can take many forms.
