“We must move from a belief-based spirituality to a practice-based spirituality, or little will change in religion, politics, and the world. We will merely continue to argue about what we are supposed to believe and who the unbelievers are.” Rohr July 21, 2017
When I read these words, I heard my mother’s voice echo in my head: “actions speak louder than words.” What a challenge to actually live up to the ideals we proclaim – especially the religious formulas.
Have you heard the quote from St Francis “Peach at all times. And when necessary, use words”?
Those phrases came to mind when I read the words above. I guess I automatically substituted the word “faith” for Rohr’s “spirituality.”
