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.

ronreese "The greatest want of the world is the want of men - men who will not be bought or sold, men who in their inmost souls are true and honest, men who do not fear to call sin by its right name, men whose conscience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole, men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall." Education p. 57.

Z_A I felt some desire to be united with them; but so great were the confusion and strife among the different denominations, that it was impossible for a person young as I was, and so unacquainted with men and things, to come to any certain conclusion who was right and who was wrong... In the midst of this war of words and tumult of opinions, I often said to myself: What is to be done? Who of all these parties are right; or, are they all wrong together? If any one of them be right, which is it, and how shall I know it? While I was laboring under the extreme difficulties caused by the contests of these parties of religionists, I was one day reading the Epistle of James, first chapter and fifth verse, which reads: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
8010575d-d554-4d1e-a02b-2eed0a Faith is the spiritual strength of our beliefs in the power of God........ Be strong and fearless in your faith for he has overcome the world and there is no greater power in the universe than our Lord God Jesus Christ!.......... The One and Only True Living God!.......... Accelerate the spread of the kingdom of God in this world!.......... We can be the most spiritually enlightened human being in this world, but without our Lord God Jesus Christ guiding our hearts, our minds and our souls, then we really have no real power inside of us and really are nothing in this world. The spiritualized thoughts in our minds are very powerful indeed...............excerpt from Faith That Is Spiritually Strong(kindle ebook)

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.
