“Arise, arise,” he cried so loud In a voice without restraint “Come out, ye gifted kings and queens And hear my sad complaint No martyr is among ye now Whom you can call your own So go on your way accordingly But know you’re not alone” - Bob Dylan

How Do You Imagine God?
God in America and USA WEEKEND Magazine are partnering to explore Americans' images of God.

How do you imagine God? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator God is something so big, so huge, that he or she or whatever the divine is cannot be reached, cannot be known, only felt in an impossibly far away way, like the smell of fresh bread drifting faintly from one room to another. The presence in prevalent enough to be noticed, but cannot be known directly without leaving the present room. 1 person liked this

My Beliefs

I believe ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator I guess the best way for me to define my faith is "Unitarian." Yes, I believe in a god, but in that strange, indefinable way. I can never really put a face or a name to what I believe to my fullest satisfaction. God, really, is an emotional connection, it is the Oversoul that chains one man to another and on and on until everyone and everything is connected, inextricably and unstoppably. God is the great force that ties a man to another man like brothers. 1 person liked this
My most powerful moment of belief was ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator I was in a record store. I was filing through CD's. I had reached the point in my adolescent journey in which I was alone, so completely alone. I was flipping through CD's until I came to a title that made me pause. There, lurking in the music like a slap in the face was the sentence "Some Day You Will Be Loved." Like a weight off of my chest, it occured to me that I was not alone, and that hope was approaching. I did not need to be sad again.
