...that she might be a sufficient reason for young Candide

and he for her

Religion @ 02:50 am

Current Mood: contemplative

Well, I had kind of an interesting day today, in a secular sort of way...Also played a lot of Gauntlet, but that's neither here nor there...

The details of this whole thing are long, and I just went to some lengths to expound on them at a friend, which was helpful, but I lack the energy to do that in text. So understand that I'm leaving out a LOT of personal background and salient thoughts here. Basically, though, I've decided to have a go at attending the Unitarian Universalist church in my area. I think it might have a lot of merit and provide me with some things I've really been missing. For those of you who are now becoming shell shocked, I am still, without doubt, grey area, or uncertainty, an atheist. That's not likely to change in my lifetime, and you can do the math on that for yourself. But I really feel the lack of a...well...spiritual community. That's problematic for an atheist, because what I mean by spiritual community is pretty different from what a lot of people would mean. But at the same time, there's a lot that a church environment provides that you don't get elsewhere, and I've decided that there's a good chance I might be able to get those things from a UUA congregation without the strings that I would find unacceptably attached to other church settings. So I'm very hopeful, and very nervous, w.r.t. what Sunday(s) will bring. I wish I'd made this decision on a Friday, though...waiting a week to see a new idea through always irks me. But so be it.

Go see Moulin Rouge, because you CANCANCAN!

Hey, if that works out for you, let me know.

I'd be interested in hearing how this plan works out for you. I'm also atheist and I know what you mean by a lack of "spiritual community".
