Grounds For Belief
from the book:
“I don’t care much for preachers,” David said. As a favor for a church member, I met the newly discharged Marine at the airport. Because he had heard me described as a “lay pastor,” the twenty-something young man wanted to avoid any misunderstandings– or spontaneous sermons, no doubt.
“I feel the same way,” I said. At first it didn’t register with him, and he continued. “Now, this ‘spirituality’ stuff is all right, as far as it goes, but I don’t really believe in all the stuff I hear about in church.”
“There are a lot of things I don’t buy, either.”
That remark stopped him. He ran a hand through his short military haircut, and looked at me slightly puzzled. “But I thought you were into church and things like that? They said you speak at churches and write articles for religious magazines and all–?”
“I’m very serious about God,” I said, “but ‘God’ and ‘religion’ don’t always have a lot to do with each other.”
When it comes to religion are you tired? Worn out? Burned out? Then you’ve come to the right place.
Now, if you’re angry and just want to argue, there are plenty of places for you to go. But that’s not what Grounds for Belief.com is here for.
On the other hand, if you would like to believe, or you think you might, then, this is the place for you.
I can’t answer every question or right every wrong. What I can do is share my journey. And, if you want, perhaps help you find your own answers to life’s great questions, your own . . .
