Only love is real. i love that. nice reminder. thank you. anyone ever look into trancendentalism? sp?! and literature from the enlightenment? it speaks to my soul, and it's comforting to me as i'm reading about it.

momma unlimited I really appreciate your wisdom and think you are probably right on. I just have to keep reminding myself of this from time to time when it feels "lonely" as it is. But truly deep down I have a feeling you are exactly right. Faith...sometimes it doesn't come easy. By the way, I am also a fan of the Zietgeist movie.

my parents studied their way out as well. they hold a lot of resentment towards the church. as for me, i had fun as a child being raised in the church schools,...and at 14, when we left the church, endured a bit of culture shock. but i transitioned well and am overall thankful for the experience. sometimes i think my folks would have been better off having never left the church. my father is an alcoholic and they have a very codependent emotional roller coaster life. ...
