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 I imagine God to be like a sweet, wise grandfather. Someone who when you get to the gates of Heaven welcomes you with open arms and assures you that everything will be OK. When I talk to God at night, or in times of need, this is how I picture him. My God definitely wears glasses. 2 people liked this

My Beliefs

I believe ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator God's greatest gift is children.
My most powerful moment of belief was ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator When my sister died. I knew she was going to a better place. I just felt it.
My spiritual life means... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator More to me at certain times than others. I know I could do a better job of practicing my faith. I wish I made more time and space for it. When I go to church I am filled with emotion. It's almost overwhelming. I leave feeling centered and peaceful. I don't know why I don't do it consistently. Sometimes I feel there's just too much other stuff to do. And that is a lame excuse.
The biggest misconception about my faith/belief system is ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator That all Catholics are hypocrites and all priests...well, you know what they say. 1 person liked this

My Faith History

As a child I believed ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator I would go straight to hell if I ever stole anything. And Hell is a scary place.
I was raised as ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator a Catholic and unlike most of my friends who also were raised Catholic, I am still a Catholic today. 1 person liked this
If you have children, did becoming a parent change your relationship to faith? If so, how? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator It only served to solidify my faith. I want my children to be raised Catholic, too. If they decide to be something else as adults, I will support them in that decision. But as children, I feel they need some spiritual and religious guidance. I love to hear my 6-year-old say Grace before dinner. 2 people liked this

How I Practice My Faith

In my house, the thing that most represents my faith is ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator The crucifix at the top of the stairs. It's small and beautiful and was a gift to my first baby at Baptism.

Religion & the Public Square

Should courses about religion be taught in public schools? Why or why not? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator Yes. Because Americans are ignorant when it comes to religion. They criticize faiths they know nothing about because they were never taught about them. 2 people liked this
