I am a church goer and a believer and I really hope that I represent my faith tradition in a good way. It is important to me to share my faith without tearing down the faith of other people. To me God is presented and worshiped in very diverse ways using different rituals and customs. The key thing here is to love one another and to do for others as they would do for you. If we are all doing that then we are all good. Having a higher power is important because we need to be connected to something greater than us and at the same time those who aren’t shouldn’t be demonized. Just a few serious thoughts for the day.
Being a believer out of your boxStandard
I love the believer who seeks to expand their understanding of their faith by engaging in fellowship with those who don’t believe and those who are from another faith. In as much as we are to be among the divine we also should remember we are very human and that is one fact that will never change.
Is a deeply personal thing and for some none is the best way for them. I respect that but I hope those folks find comfort, meaning and purpose in their lives.
Community of FaithStandard
copseden I have been in a community of faith throughout my life. To grow in one’s religious life it’s important to find a place of worship and connection that makes sense to you. Fellowship and discipleship should be learned and practiced. You cannot do it alone, it doesn’t matter if you are Catholic, Methodist, Mormon, Muslim or Buddhist you need community to share grace and peace.
Change Is Gonna ComeStandard
Lamenting change is difficult. Things come and go and you have to accept it as a part of life. No matter if its family, faith, friendship transition and change are a part of it all. We can remember the good old days or we can do something new and different. Its all up to us to plot the course we will take. We are in a partnership with our higher power in the direction we take.
I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will…Sam Cooke
Pass It On, My Favorite Hymn on Flickr.
This hymn is a long time favorite. I remember singing it in the church as a young person. This piece is as old as I am.
Rambling About Faith of PeopleStandard
I am a man of faith and I hold on to the grace and peace of my creator. There are others who have chosen paths of belief that make sense to them. We live in a world where people of good conscious are seeking and asking questions about life in all its wonder. Perhaps we should love one another more to kill the hate that festers in the hearts and minds of people who seek to cause chaos whether it be in print or on the battlefield. Aim for peace, not for the kill shot.
The way you treat others and relate to the world informs everyone about your relationship with and understanding of your higher power.
True faith is being challenged as one is being faithful to a cause, religion or institution during times of struggle and uncertainty.
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it.
