|My favorite photo from Thailand: a RBNS macaque in Lop Buri.|
I love the assessment of Fr. James Martin who speaks out against the perils of both RBNS and SBNR:
Religion without spirituality becomes a dry list of dogmatic statements divorced from the life of the spirit. This is what Jesus warned against. Spirituality without religion can become a self-centered complacency divorced from the wisdom of a community.
Elder Hallstrom went on to say: “we need the gospel and the Church. In fact, the purpose of the Church is to help us live the gospel.” You can’t have one with out the other.
