Russell Brand and Spirituality

I came across this vid on Barry Cooper’s blog today. It’d be fair to say it’s not what I expected. And it was really quite encouraging. At the very least, I’m going to have to reassess my view of Russell Brand.

One quote that stood out head and shoulders above the others was Brand’s comment, ‘Someone told me once that all desire is the desire to be at one with God in substitute form. So perhaps we can draw attention not to the shadow on the wall but to the source of light itself’.

That’s worth thinking about.
