Spiritual but not religious? Please stop boring me.
Like just about anything lowest-common-denominator from a Christian church or minister, pretty good.
Where life with God gets rich and provocative is when you dig deeply into a tradition that you did not invent all for yourself.
Indeed. So as Arturo bluntly put it to another mainliner, get back to me when you get a real religion, not one you can invent all for yourself.

Religion as seen from the ground: belonging to the family or tribe, a roadmap/rule book to do right and live with others, and just enough of the miraculous to show the claims are true (add to that St Thomas Aquinas: it’s reasonable to believe. Prime mover.)

Beyond that (golden rule, serenity prayer), again, the Catholic basics.
