  1. Damn, that’s beautiful. While I do not have kids or a wife yet (I’m still in college). That has to be the closest I have found to my feelings on religion. I don’t know what it is called either but life to live to be part of something more to interact with friends and family. To truly live in the world that is true religion. Thank you for the beautiful article.

    Tom – very nice – I think it is easy to get so hung up in “naming” or “framing” our believe system, that we miss the real value of belief. Your article articulates that beautifully. Thanks.

  3. There are times when I’m not sure what I believe in, or if I believe in anything. But if my (unpublished) novels are anything to go by, I believe in what I call “virtuous community”—as opposed to virtual community—or at least I devoutly wish it existed. If I could find a congregation like the Gethsemane Church I created in my mind, I think I could call it home.
