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.

bmcanally The only thing that matters is faith expressed through love (Gal. 5:6). I'm a follower of Christ, an author about heaven, hell, the afterlife, and about world religions, and I'm a pastor. I like people...they are God's finest creation!
Bobbie God is infinite, absolute good, spirit; unlimited all powerful Love. Any idea which contradicts this is a lie, an illusion. (that includes eternal damnation which is not consistent with Jesus’ teachings about forgiveness) Jesus is not God, he is the Son of God, the Way-shower, sent as a man to show men how to live and reveal the ever-present healing Christ. (As seen earlier for Elijah and Elisha.) Jesus Christ promised that whoever believed in him would do his works and more, “because I go unto me Father.” Gen 1 shows man created in God’s image, male and female. Hence, God is Father-Mother. Male and female are both of God. Gen 2 is a useful allegory, a fable, as indicated by the talking serpent and the various holes in a tale not meant to be taken literally. (If Adam and Eve were the first humans , where did Cain find a wife from the land of Nod.) Talking animals are characteristic of fables or allegories told to make a point: Listen to God, obey God, live a good life. Disobeying God means relinquishing God’s blessings, thereby experiencing evil—unforeseen consequences.
beopentogod "Deep within us all there is an amazing inner sanctuary of the soul, a holy place, a Divine Center, a speaking Voice, to which we may continously return. Eternity is at our hearts, pressing upon our time-torn lives, warming us with intimations of an astounding destiny, calling us home unto Itself. Yielding to these persuasions, gladly committing ourselves in body and soul, utterly and completely to the Light within, is the beginning of Life." Thomas Kelly
