A good book ...

I am halfway through Richard Rohr's booking "Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life."

Here are three things I read yesterday that caused me to put the book down and ponder for a considerable amount of time:

"What passes for morality or spirituality in the vast majority of people's lives is the way everybody they grew up with thinks."

"It has been said that 90 percent of people seem to live 90 percent of their lives on cruise control, which is to be unconscious."

"The shape of evil is much more superficiality and blindness than the usually listed 'hot sins.' God hides, and is found, precisely in the depths of everything, even and maybe especially in the deep fathoming of our fallings and failures. Sin is to stay on the surface of even holy things, like Bible, sacrament or church."

Now, you may or may not fully agree with what Rohr says ...

but I bet you will agree that these statements sure make you think,

and think hard,

about your life.

That, to me, is one of the best indicators of a good book!
