Welcome to my Book of Mirrors



This is my spiritual journey. I am looking for the truth of who I am and who God is, unfettered by the traditions prescribed by my family, church and culture.

A Little Grace, Please

Let me make it perfectly clear that I do not blame or hold resentment to any one particular gender or person.

Although many messages I have heard came straight from the pulpit, I never saw anyone in the congregation, male or female, stand up and say it wasn't true.

I have a lot of love and respect for the Christians in my past... my old Sunday School teacher, all my pastors and 'their wives.'

But it is possible to believe someone in error and love them all the same.

I am angry, at injustice. But not at people. I sincerely believe that people do the best they can. If they knew any better, they would do it differently.

I hope that is how people think of me.
