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.

omidsafi Omid Safi is the author of Memories of Muhammad: Why the Prophet Matters (HarperOne 2009).

Covering such hot button issues such as the spread of Islam, holy wars, the role of women, the significance of Jerusalem, tensions with Jews and Christians, wahabbi Islam, and the role of cyberspace in the evolution of the religion, Memories of Muhammad presents Muhammad as a lens through which to present the unfolding of both Islamic history and Islamic religion.

JAD221 I am a gay-man of G-d. I do not speak for another, and I do not speak for G-d. But I do speak for myself. And it is my unshakeable belief that G-d loves all who believe and who do not believe equally. I find great comfort in knowing that politics and religion are (wo)man-made and not of G-d’s imagination. Now in my fifties, having a not so uneventful life, watching, remembering and living much of what was shown and not shown in “God In America”, I have to say with a measure of sadness and as well joy, yes, even in joy, “G-D BLESS AMERICA” !!!
