The trending sentiment of 'spiritual but not religious' suggests religion is going out of style. Yet in his own desert of deconstruction, Zach Hoag couldn't shake the desire for a spiritual home.

It can be the first step back toward the flourishing faith God intends for us. After all, isn't this the essence of the Christian story: death paves the way for resurrection?
