Hi everyone. I'm Bea. I'm new to this forum and Progressive Christianity. I'm 38yo, and I've been in a committed relationship with my partner for 9yrs. My stepson from a previous relationship has served 2 tours in Afganistan. In short, I grew up and was baptized in a Presbyterian Church. My mother gave me a firm religious foundation. As a teen, I had my bible next to me at all times, even when sleeping it rested right beside my pillow or the next stand. When I hit College, I attended a Catholic College. That is when I turned away from my faith. It all become confusing, contradictory, full of hypocrisy, oppressive, repressive, lacked diversity and I was "Coming Out". I have been a "lost soul" for many years trying to find something that made sense. I studied and studied, and decided, My problem was not with my faith at all or with Jesus, it was with organized/legalized Religion. I felt a calling, Jesus just tugging at me. I feel like I'm back or on the way. I just found this forum a few days ago and I found the United Church of Christ with the Cathedral of Hope. It seems to fit and I hope to use this forum for good discussion and a supportive environment. I look forward to getting to know those who post in this forum.

Welcome Bea. There is no need to be nervous. We have all had similar journeys. God is not scripture and God is not a church or a set of Dogma and yet God is felt within where ever you are. your not alone. It is good to hear form you. Please stay a while and you will note we are not scary. We I may be first thing in the morning when I look in the mirror but that is another story.
