      It’s very important! We, those of us who see spiritual as more important or as important as others see religion do not get heard in very fair climates most of the time. I have friends who just look at me when I talk about my beliefs. I don’t criticize people; I simply share when someone expresses discontent with their church or religion. Then, we can talk if they want or whatever works. But sometimes I feel the religious powers that be put their foot down hard on individuals and do not allow us the opportunity to grow in spirit, especially if we even think about going outside of church beliefs to do that. Guess I should stop now…lol

        Oh, no… Don’t stop, lol! Rants and raves (done respectfully) are very good! Nothing’s ever going to change if we don’t learn to talk about it. And I believe it’s all about finding the right climate, because they do exist (and if they don’t in your area – why not create one!) There are so many people like us, trying to find their place in the world as well who don’t fall into organized religion. It’s funny, I speak at all these churches of various denominations, but don’t belong to any particular one anymore (or yet.) Some preachers do put their foot down and it’s their way or the highway, so it becomes about having courage and faith to either stand up to them or find someplace new. If it isn’t working for you (no matter what the reason) then change it! I miss terribly not belonging to a particular place anymore (or at least not yet) but I believe even more that I’m called to follow Jesus and not man. Therefore, if someone in the pulpit doesn’t allow change and growth, then that’s not where I want to be anyways, because I haven’t been called to follow him.

          Won’t get any argument about needing to stay true to what you believe is your spiritual way. I grew up very traditionally in the United Methodist Church (went to college to be a minister). Leaving that, I have had to face many difficulties, especially as I remained the lay leader after my decision to change. My faith is one of tolerance, so I don’t judge; I allow and offer help/discussion/advice when asked or when I see someone wanting that. It works for me and I am met mostly with warmth wherever I go and whatever I do. Not always, but I am very comfortable with it.
