Where I Find God ~ Not Very Useful Truths

Lifelongguy, one of my favorite blog writers, wrote a gem this week. Well worth the read. This is one of my favorite parts:

It's in this reserved space that I feel moved by the way my body can function. It's here that I sense beauty of the landscape I am within. I feel united in the world, one with the ever changing environment around me, an integral part of a bigger place in which I am both trivial and essential. This is where I find God.

This post resonates deeply.

I realize how alive I am and what a miracle it is to be able to run, in this place, at this exact moment. It's then that I know God. At the top of a hill, exhausted and delighted at the view, knowing an exhilarating descent is ahead, I catch my breath and appreciate that the present is amazing and yet the best is yet to come.

who we are

Welcome to The Peacewriter.

We all want to belong somewhere, to someone. It is a basic human need.

If you have ever experienced a period of doubt or questioned your beliefs in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, you know that this is not a minor thing. It is tantamount to a crisis, and one that can be life altering.

Lose your testimony, and you stand to lose everything that matters.

There are those who exist on the fringes of the Church, who feel disenfranchised, even unwanted. If you are single, gay or lesbian, feminist, atheist, or uncorrelated, it can be tough to feel like a part of the community. You may feel that you do not belong.

You belong here.

If you have ever loved someone who endured a faith crisis, you know that there are a lot of gray areas. Uncertainty is the dominant force; black and white become moot points.

Those who have walked the same path share a common bond, understood by few who have not traveled the same road.

This is the place to share common experiences, to find a voice, to be heard. This is the place to seek after peace, and to find it in the common ties we share.

This is The Peacewriter.
