Is there a difference between being spiritual and being religious? Is one preferable to the other? Is it possible that both are needed?

Many people have been led to wonder if religion isnt so much the solution as it is the problem. Disillusioned with organized religion, many are now choosing to identify as spiritual but not religious."

Yet wanting to nurture humanitys innate need to connect with a higher being/God/our creator, people are choosing to focus instead on personal practice and empowerment. But are weable to grow spiritually without others? Or does religion carry a special potency that actually promotes the betterment and progress of us all individually and collectively?
