A Great Encouragement at Church

Submitted by Stephen Winters
For many years I have felt like I've been muzzled in church. I did not feel the freedom to speak of what I was really thinking, feeling, and believing. I did not feel that it was acceptable (by the church staff and members) to just be real.
I have been searching for many years for a church where I could be real, where I could be accepted for who I am, and where I could openly express my thoughts and ideas and questions about religion and life. At times I have been so discouraged, thinking that I was alone, so different and so strange.

Living a Life of Wonder

Submitted by Stephen Winters
Is This Life Horrible or Wonderful?
In this life, what you look for is what you will find.
If you are looking for what is miserable and awful,
    that is what you will find, a world that is miserable and awful,
      filled with every dreaded thing
 
If you look for what is wonderful and awe-inspiring,
    that is what you will find, a world that is wonderful and awe-inspiring,
      filled with all the delights and wonders of this.

What do I know?

Submitted by Stephen Winters
In my life there have been times when I so wanted others to agree with me or to acknowlege that I was right or that I had the answers.
However, the further along I get in this journey of life I get, the more I realize how little I do know. And it is becoming less important to me that everyone (or anyone) agrees with me, or thinks that I am right. It is also less important to me that I know that I am right. I just try to do the best I can and try to do the right thing, with the facts and situations in life as I see them from my limited perspective.
