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!
