Socrates "This above all:to thine own self be true,:and it must follow,as the night the day,: Thou canst not be false to any man." Polonius "The thing is to understnd myself, to see what God really wishes me to do; the thing is to find a truth which is true for me,"S.Kierkegaard

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 At fifty two I don't imagine much anymore. The mystery, the magic and the wonder of life has all but gone out of my life, I'm just surviving. But I see God or should I say I imagine God as personified energy that is connected to all that is living, be it human or animal, or the smallest microscopic particle that has life. Somehow he is connected to it all, and to various degrees he is involved in their life. Although I cannot explain this mystery nor do I care to understand it. It just what I imagine.

Are your beliefs or practices different from your parents? If so, how and why? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator Yes,my parents did not go to church,read the bible,pray or do anything spiritual. My dad may have gone to church when he was younger,but the last time he went to church he had a bad experience and swore he would not step his foot inside another church. My mom would say she believe in God but did not see the need to go to church,today I believe people would say I am spiritual but religious.
