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.

Peanut ALL THINGS ARE OF GOD, WHO HAS RECONCILED US TO HIMSELF THRU JESUS CHRIST....GOD WAS IN CHRIST RECONCILING THE WORLD TO HIMSELF, NOT IMPUTING THEIR TRESPASSES TO THEM. THEREFORE, IF ANYONE IS IN CHRIST HE IS A NEW CREATION; OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY; BEHOLD ALL THINGS HAVE BECOME NEW. BE RECONCILED TO CHRIST." 2 CORINTHIANS 5: 17-20

BigPapa2731 I condemn false prophets, I condemn the effort to take away the power of rational decision, to drain people of their free will — and a hell of a lot of money in the bargain. Religions vary in their degree of idiocy, but I reject them all. For most people, religion is nothing more than a substitute for a malfunctioning brain. —Gene Roddenberry, creator of the Star Trek series
