  1. Why does it seem to me that some people always seem to bring up the gays, indigenous peoples, etc as examples of groups that religious people hate? That is not the case at all. But these people, who claim to be so compassionate and loving, are the ones doing the racist dividing and picking out one "group" after another as an example of how they are different and then therefore "hated". Who's doing the hating and dividing and pitting one "group" against another? What religious leaders and by the way, it starts with the individual, should always be is human. "Being nice" is so nice it almost
  2. Not only does it take away your attention on your own problems for a bit, you have initiated a chain reaction of kindness. You would be surprised how that smile or small gesture can evolve through other people to help their friends/associates and so on. And I am reminded of a great saying: "As you think, so shall you be."
  3. Yes, and I've often thought of "spiritual" meaning you are the observer, the witness. You are not who you think you are, but deeper than that. Buddhism helps me a lot in realizing the spiritual and non-attachment.
  4. Sounds really good at first glance of the website. Must do delve deeper. I'd go see her if she were near my home.
  5. I do find it hard to believe that in this supposed modern day, the Catholic church does not allow women into the priesthood. I am Anglican and while we have women ministers, the COE recently voted down allowing women to become Bishops! I have to shake my head. It must be a sign of spiritual maturity, (I'm being hopeful ) that I no longer get really angry about this. I haven't changed my mind - I think women should be allowed - but it is not important. I do feel that when we evolve further to understand that we are each one of the other, male and female, and that each gender has remarkabl
  6. My sense of wonder. I have been asking "why" since I can remember. My sense of wonder has always made me feel like I'm in a dream. I feel like I'm in this world but not of this world. The phrase, "We are not human beings having spiritual experiences, but spiritual beings having human experiences" should be my epitaph. My need to make sense of things has led me on this quest. But what I have discovered to this point, is I no longer need to hold on to that need. I embrace the chaos now. And I practice everyday to let go and let God.
  7. Thanks for the comments everyone! Looking forward to looking around this place some more.
  8. Hi Monty and Welcome. I'm brand new as well and live only a two hour drive from you in the beautiful Annapolis Valley, more down towards Digby way. It's not often you see two introductions on boards from people in Nova Scotia. Greetings!
  9. Hello everyone, my name is Amy, I am a married female currently experiencing my 52nd revolution around the sun and I live in...ahem....God's Country (which I'm sure you do, too LOL!) Anyhoo.....loving the life and finding myself drawn ever closer to God. I was raised Anglican, stepped over to the wiccan/pagan side and then the atheist side for a bit, decided those places were fine for some but not for me, and now I'm like the cat, I came back. I go to our church in town when I can (I live in the country) with my elderly parents. I love our young minister who has a young family and I do like o
