WOW> I have learned SO much from the Spirituality part of MDC- up until now I have been mainly in the Pregnancy Loss part. I have to warn you, this question may be very jumbled. I was born and raised Catholic, although in my adult years I was a very liberal Catholic, praying mostly to a femaile "God" (Sophia) and disagreeing with alot of the church's teaching. However, in January 2001, my old best friend and former fiance was killed do to medical error (his heart was punctured during a lung biopsy). That very same day, my 21 year old siter in law was hit and killed by a car. In March, my Grandpa died, and in November I miscarried in my 13 week when things finally looked like they were going to get better (I had a septate uterus, but the placenta was due to take over supplying nutrition). In Feb I had another miscarriage, and this past July I had a third. Needless to say, each loss caused a bit more of my faith to crumble and I felt prayers to be more and more of a waste of time. I came to the point where I just considered myself Agnostic. SO- here are my questions (And thank youf or ALL of the sharing the has taken place on all od the threads here). In the Gnostic and Pagan faiths, what are the beliefs on death, praying, "God's" power, etc. I am really feeling drawn to learn more. I miss havign a faith- but looking back now, there was so much the the Catholic Church that NEVER made sense to me. Is there a website I can go to to learn some of the foundational beliefs of Pagan and Gnostic faiths?
