Yesterday, in discussing the Public Religion Research Institute's new American Values Survey, I noted that those who find religion uninteresting bore me - religion is many things, but never boring. I also noted that those who claim to be "spiritual but not religious" are prone to a certain solipsism. I had in mind, as I wrote those words, a commentary at "Interfaith Voices" with the Rev. Lillian Denn, senior minister at the First Congregational Church, UCC, in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. I wasn't able to locate the link to the audio yesterday but have now found it and highly commend listening. She is hilarious and, I think, spot-on! Here is the link.
