1. Deborah Barrett: A Day of Spiritual Practice Can Do Wonders
“A day of rest. A day of mindfulness, of slowing down to appreciate life. A “Sabbath.” Regardless of religious background, a day devoted to spirituality — to “be” instead of to “do” — calls for motivation, creativity and planning.”

2. Richard Allen Greene: Religious Belief is Human Nature, Huge New Study Claims
“Religion comes naturally, even instinctively, to human beings, a massive new study of cultures all around the world suggests.”We tend to see purpose in the world,” Oxford University professor Roger Trigg said Thursday. “We see agency. We think that something is there even if you can’t see it. … All this tends to build up to a religious way of thinking.”

3. Victor Stenger: Spiritual Atheism
“A recent HuffBlog “The Spiritual Lives of Atheist Scientist” by Adelle M. Banks generated a lot of comments, including references to my own 2007 book God: The Failed Hypothesis. The article describes the work of sociologist Elaine Howard Ecklund on the so-called “spirituality” of atheist scientists. Let me provide some background that was not mentioned by Banks or any of the hundreds of comments.”

4. David Leonhardt: Is Your Religion Your Financial Destiny?
“The economic differences among the country’s various religions are strikingly large, much larger than the differences among states and even larger than those among racial groups… Many factors are behind the discrepancies among religions, but one stands out. The relationship between education and income is so strong that you can almost draw a line through the points on this graph. Social science rarely produces results this clean.”
