We can change this world with words like "love" and "freedom."

How many of you have a belief in what Alcoholics Anonymous calls a “Higher Power” or dare I say it–God? Right now is a difficult time for believers. Same-sex marriage has taken center stage in current news, and people are debating what it actually means to be a believer.
The debates are missing the whole point. People who choose to believe in God, no matter what religion they belong to, are in touch with a spirituality which is about much more than a list of do’s and don’t’s, who it’s okay to love, and who will go to heaven one day. I’m not saying that everyone has to believe a certain way, but finding a sense of sacredness in what you’re doing can change your life. 
If you’re feeling lost and as if you can’t reconcile who you are with what you believe, maybe it’s time to become a seeker. A seeker of something deeper than going to church every time the doors open or following external spiritual practices. I know it’s a hard place to be. I’m trying to find my way too.

I’d like to share my friend the Magpie Girl, Rachelle Mee-Chapman. This post struck a note in my soul–maybe it will do the same for you.
