And what’s that you ask? You can read this post on my other blog to get started. That is, if you’re interested. But since you’re here, you might as well find out about this project. Sit down. Relax for a minute.
Okay, here’s the deal. I’m going on a spiritual quest over the next year to find my religion. I’m going to explore one religion a month by reading text, attending services and seeing what happens. And I’m not limiting it to Christianity. At the end of the year, I’ll pick one. Kinda like the bachelorette on TV, but different.
Why am I doing this? Well, for one, I’ve spent the last couple of years exploring death. What I found is that religion and spirituality went hand in hand with death. There’s the obvious question of what happens after I die, as well as someone’s faith giving them comfort in their last days of life.
I wasn’t raised with religion. Yes, we went to church on occasion, but it wasn’t a regular part of my upbringing. And I kind of want that. I want to feel a part of something larger than myself. I want to know what faith is.
I recently joined a Bible study group to see what that’s about. We’re working from a book called The Frazzled Female. I started talking with another PTA mom on field day and she mentioned her church and this Bible study group. I saw her post on Facebook that a new group was forming, so I just took the ball and ran with it. That’s how I roll. If it comes up organically, then I’ll go. I do have a plan, but I’m going to trust whomever that is running the show to put this stuff in my path.
At this point, I don’t have a regular idea of what I’m going to do on this blog. Posts will be random at first, but hopefully I will have questions and maybe a few answers to discuss. Thanks for stopping by!
