Our Spiritual Weakness

"The great weakness of North American spirituality is that it is all about us: fulfilling our potential, getting in on the blessings of God, expanding our influence, finding our gifts, getting a handle on principles by which we can get an edge over the competition. And the more there is of us, the less there is of God."

-- Eugene Peterson, Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places
