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.

Rev_Ken_Howard Ken Howard, a Christian of Jewish origins, is the pastor of St. Nicholas Episcopal Church, in Germantown, Maryland, the church he founded in 1995, and the author of the new book, "Paradoxy: Creating Christian Community Beyond Us and Them." Ken holds a Master of Divinity degree from Virginia Theological Seminary, and received honors in Church History for his ground-breaking research into the Jewish origins of early Christianity, published in "Jewish Christianity in the Early Church: How the Church forgot its Jewish Roots." Respected and trusted for his expertise in conflict resolution and consensus building among groups with opposing theological and political views, Ken has been called upon to facilitate dialogs on issues ranging from human sexuality to interfaith relations. When not occupied with the business of pastoring and growing the theologically diverse congregation he helped plant, Ken provides presentations, training, and coaching on the concepts outlined in "Paradoxy," as well as in church planting and congregational vitality.

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
