Finding Faith in Faith

This blog is dedicated to exploring the intersections of faith and politics, the intricacies of religious culture and the struggle to balance devotion to a higher being and to oneีs culture.

Unsettled Business

So here we go again.

New home in Colorado, new search for a new spiritual home.

Tonight Bethany and I had dinner with Bethany's aunt Lisa. Among the topics we discussed was church culture. As Lisa explained, it might be easy to find a church home in the Bible Belt, where church life is ingrained the social fabric of the larger community, but in Boulder church life is quite different.

Regular church attendance is not normative among the Boulder population, and to attend church is to "live against the grain," she said.

Lisa and her daughter attend Boulder Valley Christian Church. We will likely attend in the coming weeks, but we plan to attend many churches to see what resonates with our own purpose.
