The spiritual connection

A well-known American magazine recently invited a few people to define what spirituality means to them. The article was entitled "Making the Spiritual Connection."

Among the contributors was Robert Coles, professor of psychiatry at Harvard University. He explained he had been talking to children for more than a decade to learn what they think about "the meaning of life, its purpose, its origins, its moral significance ... [and] what thoughts they have about God ...." He listens to them talk about the stories they have read in the Bible and how they try to connect those stories with their lives. He writes, "I also hear them struggling with the question of 'spirituality': What is it, and how does one find it for oneself?"
