Building a more SPIRITUAL civilization
The Sentinel Is Devoted to discerning and nurturing the advance of spirituality in human civilization. So our cover title this week is in fact a subtext for every story this magazine publishes. Usually, however, we take on civilization's progress in smaller bites. It comes with the territory of a weekly news cycle.
Magazine editor Nancy Roof's discussion of a more spiritual civilization moved us to take a longer view this week. Call it "think long-term, act in the immediate."
Despite the usual list of sobering events listed on our issue planning whiteboard, the advancing spiritual civilization is the big story of this moment. Then, in the spirit of Socrates's wise warning about the "unexamined life," a civilization in the of transformation shouldn't go unexamined just because we can't foresee society's coming shape and scope.
