tonight i went to my old youth group meeting for the first time since high school... a lot is different but what they believe is the same. and i do not believe that this is a bad thing. it is such a breath of fresh air to know that the religion i once was a part of is still the same.
i have been on quite the journey sense high school. i have discovered things about myself and the world on my own. and during this process i have come to challenge some of the things i believe. i think that this was necessary for me and maybe for everyone. if people are not being challenged by the people and the things around them, than they can not grow.
i do not know everything that i believe, but i do know that i do love that religion allows people to believe in something greater than who they are.
i have within me this desire to know and understand what it means to live completely free, with love, and to be apart of something bigger than who i am.
