From today's New York Times 

"We need a Steve Jobs of religion. Someone (or ones) who can invent not a new religion but, rather, a new way of being religious. Like Mr. Jobs’s creations, this new way would be straightforward and unencumbered and absolutely intuitive. Most important, it would be highly interactive. I imagine a religious space that celebrates doubt, encourages experimentation and allows one to utter the word God without embarrassment. A religious operating system for the Nones[*] among us. And for all of us."

— Eric Weiner , the author, most recently, of Man Seeks God: My Flirtations with the Divine .

[* A term for the religiously unaffiliated. See also the 3 PM hour of prayer.]

For highly interactive flirtations, I prefer Rebecca Larue.  ("Skyrockets in flight…")
