daily word - wineskins

Dale Cresap's picture

Do you make a distinction between religion and spirituality? Some faith traditions refer to themselves as religions and for others this is a dirty word. These are still useful terms and I make reference to the same concepts as wine and wineskins. Religion gives organization and structure to your faith. You need a community and regular practices to support your spirituality. If the wineskin bursts the wine is spilled and there is a spiritual reality that corresponds to this imagery. The wineskins only exist because of the value of  the wine so you should not be confused about which is more important. Don’t accept a religion that doesn’t serve your spirituality, but don’t resent the religion that does serve to support it.
