Is the U.S. one of the spiritually poorest countries on the planet?

What if I could name those Spiritual Intelligence skills and describe them on a spectrum from “novice” to “expert”? Could a framework of skills and levels of development help me and others know what to work on next?

Wigglesworth, Cindy. SQ21: The Twenty-One Skills of Spiritual Intelligence . SelectBooks, Inc.. Kindle Edition. 

There are models of physical development, social development, emotional development, cognitive development, moral development, why not spiritual development? 

What are the functions of religious organizations in our society? One of them is to nurture the spiritual development of its members and the people who interact with the religious organization. How do we assess the level of spiritual development of an individual, the groups that individual participates in, and the society in which the individuals and groups are members? Are there models that provide such an assessment tool? The answer is yes, and Cindy Wigglesworth attempts to provide us with one such model in this book.

Mother Teresa said one time that while the United States is one of the materially richest countries on the planet it is one of the spiritually poorest. What do you think of Mother Teresa’s observation and comment?
