A Sunday morning in my church

I try not to get into this kind of topic too much on here, but I guess I'll make an exception today.

I don't consider myself to be a terribly religious person.

I do however consider myself to be a spiritual person.

I was raised Episcopalian, but I stopped going to church once I reached adulthood.

I just find that organized religion is not my thing. It feels too hypocritical to me.

I won't go into all of the details because I believe that everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, and I have no desire to offend anyone or start a philosophical/theological discussion on my blog.

I just thought that I would provide you with the opportunity to see the world through my eyes on this beautiful Sunday morning.


I hope you enjoyed the show.

Isn't it amazing how God came up with all this beauty in nature??? I could just sit and watch the sights and talk to God all day long!!!

You've got some beautiful pictures Shannon. Looking around you and appreciating the beauty of the world certainly makes you feel much more spiritual...

Well, here's something that might knock your socks off. :)

My husband is a pastor.
I, too, hate religion.

Luckily, 'church' for me is not about religion...but about my relationship with God.

Try to forget about the rules & regulations & all that nonsense that some churches push...and focus on who you are in your relationship with God. THAT's all that matters.

Loved the photo show! I am spiritual, sincerely so. I do wish we could find a church nearby, to help our little one have a knowledgeable relationship with God. God is all around us, not just in a structure called church.

Thanks!!
