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). Memories of Muhammad provides a new biography of the Prophet of Islam as the role model for millions of modern Muslims. In this new biography, Omid Safi, a rising scholar of Islam, presents a portrait of Muhammad that reveals his centrality in the devotions of modern Muslims around the world. 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.

Niki To surrender to ignorance and call it God has always been premature, and it remains premature today. - Isaac Asimov
JohnCalvin There is no one keeping records up there. The records are here in the heart and I am going to have to deal with them. That is far more painful than having a record keeping God up in the skies. So I or anyone who is setting out on the path to enlightenment will eventually become absolutely impeccable in every thing that they do. Is it because of a fear of damnation or of the punishment of wrathful God? Or because one has sinned and hasn't asked forgiveness? No, no, no and no. These are only excuses that lead us away from the real problem. The truly enlightened person will see that every action has a reaction with which they must deal. Not only do we do unto others but as we do unto others we are doing unto ourselves. And if a person is wise then they are not going to do stuff that will cause them to have to later face it and resolve it and balance it in their soul.
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.
