God in America
Support provided by:

Have you ever shared your personal spiritual journey in words or pictures? What does your faith look like when no one is watching? Do you have a favorite prayer or blessing? How do you imagine God? Do you consider yourself spiritual but not religious?

Faithbooking is a creative expression of an individual or family's spiritual journey. Beliefs, values and life events are captured in scrapbooks, diaries or journals, often incorporating photographs, decorated papers, scripture, thoughts, prayers, blessings and stories.

We want to create the largest and most diverse digital Faithbook ever. Help us by designing a page for you, your family, your community group or house of worship. Share your faith tradition or spiritual journey. Upload photos and short video clips. Help others learn and understand what you believe and why.

Theology_Club The Orlando Area Progressive Theology Club currently meets in Longwood Florida near Orlando. Moderated by a lay-person DVD materials are used to introduce ideas and raise questions that may then be discussed by those present. This group is to be a safe place for all where those present subscribe to keeping it that way. It is a safe place where civility reigns and all may share their journey without any judgment by others; a place to “love our neighbors” by letting down our personal “tribal” boundaries; a place where we are willing to let the ideas of others into our own experience; a place for raising questions without prescribing answers; a place not on the road less traveled but on the road less mentioned. The group currently meets at 7:15 PM MOST Wednesdays at the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection in Longwood Florida. Please call the office at 407-788-3704 to confirm.

The_Beatle I believe that "God", (or whatever terminology one uses to describe the concept) is a conscious, present and loving force. This love force is receptive to all attempts to connect with it. The mistake I believe people make when they align themselves with organized religion is that every religion ultimately states it's dogma as the "Only" way to connect with this force. "Only" if you accept Jesus as your savior..."Only" if you state the words of surrender to Allah..."Only" if you follow Jim Jones without question. My own dedicated journey to connect with God took me through quite a number of religious approaches, and I discovered the most incredible thing...whenever I opened my heart with full desire and sincerity to any particular method of outreach, I made the connection. Because the connection is so real...so powerful...so euphoric...so transcendent, the truth is that if someone created a religion called "Headstanders", and proclaimed that all other religions were "Wrong", and that standing on one's head was the "Only" way to find God, anyone who hungered to be touched by God and stood on their head with an open heart , would absolutely make that direct connection with their higher power, and because the connection would be so miraculous...so beautiful...so filled with light and joy...THAT person would believe for the rest of their lives that Christians are wrong, Jews are wrong, Muslims are wrong, etc., because they would know first hand from their own experience that the only way to connect with God is to stand on one's head.
