Idol Chatter

raiinwilsonpicforic.jpgWho knew everyone’s favorite “Office” character was such a spiritual dude? Although Rainn Wilson is open about his Baha’i faith, he’s doing much more to spur discussion about religion and God.
Wilson’s new venture, Soul Pancake, is a website he’s helped create about religion’s big questions. In the site’s introductory video, Wilson strums a guitar while singing a little ditty and then smashes his instrument before channeling Lewis Black (in attitude, not message) and saying:
“I am sick of spirituality being airy-fairy, hippy-dippy, and precious. I want to have a debate about life’s big questions and de-lamify talking about God and religion. Soul Pancake is where spirituality and creativity meet.”
Although there’s not much more to the site yet, Soul Pancake did send out an email newsletter yesterday promoting their new Spatufist logo contest, in which readers are encouraged to upload photos of themselves holding spatulas above their head.
So what do you think? How do you combine your spirituality and creativity? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
