OK, my first try with a Mama Kat Writer’s Workshop prompt, this one really jumped out at me!
5.)Describe what brought you closer to your faith.
I just finished reading “The Shack”, and it really challenged some of my preconceived notions about spirituality. So many of the concepts I thought, “Yeah, that’s what I believe, but I couldn’t have expressed it that clearly!” I’m currently between churches, hunting for the right one for me and my family, and I don’t really want to settle for just any church, I want to be part of one that really feels like a “church home”. This book helped me realize that it’s my personal relationship with God that’s important, not all the details I am so easily caught up in. Sooo, I’m now trying to become more trusting and forgiving in all my relationships instead of my cynical, judgemental self in hopes that this will, when the time is right, lead me to the right church community for us.
