Phyllis Tickle once observed that saying ‘I’m spiritual but not religious’ is like saying ‘I’m human but I’m not flesh and bone.’ Why not own the fact of our loves and liturgies? I say we hold it all out with open hands.” Dark’s book was published in February by Intervarsity Press and is available in stores and online.
