FOSTER: FIVE PERCENT SPIRITUALITY
Richard Foster writes this:
Many of us live in a kind of inner apartheid. We segregate out a small corner of pious activities and then make no spiritual sense out of the rest of our lives. We become so accustomed to this way of living that we fail to see the contradiction in it. The scandal of Christianity in our day is the heresy of a five percent spirituality. We overcome this modern heresy by Praying the Ordinary.
...If we cannot find God in the routines of home and shop, then we will not find him at all. Ours is a symphonic piety in which all activities of work and play and sex and sleep are holy habitats.
(From a sermon by Martin Dale, The Paradox of Two Personalities, 8/26/2011)
