They almost pulled me in. Or, my life as a temporary Christian

god-and-fish1[1]

I grew up in a non-Christian household, thank goodness. However, in my early school years (K-6), I was given the opportunity to go to private school. It happened to be Episcopal. Since no one on my mother’s side of the family had a religious bone in their body, I can only assume I went there because it was a good school and no one thought it would do me any harm. [Read more]

Indoctrinated?

Is it possible to become so absorbed in an idea that it is impossible to be persuaded otherwise? At what point does a human mind become so fixed that it ceases to think independently? If so, is it ever possible to wake up? [Read more]

I wish I could let this go…

LET US PRAY … OR NOT

56-7623-screen-shot-2013-10-17-at-11-1382033530[1]

It was finals time in my first semester of my freshman year at college. As I left for the first of many, I said to my roommate, “Wish me luck!” She answered with, “I’m gonna do more than that.

Why is that, I wondered? Prayer didn’t mean much to me — it would never have occurred to me to tell someone I was praying for them. But it meant something to her. It was extra. It was beyond wishing. And she was going to do it on my behalf. I appreciated the gesture and even drew a little comfort from it. [Read more]
