I started this post because I have a long road ahead of me. Several weeks ago I read the Quran for the first time, and it had what I can only describe as a profound effect on me. I had been curious about religion and specifically Islam since I was a kid, having been raised in a relatively secular household (we had Christmas and Easter but with no mention of Jesus or church visits, what I refer to as “Hallmark Christianity”). I felt a need to find religion for many years, but none seemed to quite fit and I resigned myself to being an agnostic – not bad, really, but it felt like I was settling for less than what I needed.
WelcomeThis is a blog where I discuss my thoughts on a number of topics, including religion, theology, philosophy, current events, etc. This blog is not intended to promote any particular belief over another, nor am I writing as a representative of any particular belief system. I'm just an ordinary individual trying to understand God, and myself, a little better. Comments are welcome! Please read the comment policy before commenting. I reserve the right to reject any comment for any reason (its my blog, after all). I hope you will enjoy reading!
