I have a wallet full of pictures, which makes me a rich man.
Sorry, if the rest of the fathers' have empty billfolds.

I hope you had a great day!

Okay, I'm posting a question here to my cd friends because I'm not looking for any kind of debate or judgment, just advice. Hope that's okay to do in this thread.

My 18 year old son came to me today pretty distraught because he has sincerely been doubting the existence of God. He's feeling hung out to dry ... alone, scared, depressed. Deja vu. I get it, of course, but it still sort of caught me off guard since none of my kids have ever expressed those kinds of doubts before.

I told him I'm on the fence myself, which totally shocked him, and I shared with him how I cope with the feelings that doubt engenders. He said that did help him, and I'm glad.

However, what I can't help him with is how to go about finding a connection with God because I don't have one. All I have is an intellectual understanding of what I believe about God, which is helpful to a degree, and which I openly share with him and the rest of my children to the degree that they show an interest.

But intellect isn't particularly satisfying when you're desiring a relationship with your Divine Parent. I've learned to live with that as my reality, while still remaining open to the possibility of some day having that relationship. But I obviously don't feel qualified to give him a lot of guidance on how to seek out that relationship and that's what I've told him.

I said he should feel free to seek out whatever ways of connecting that he feels comfortable with, with full confidence that I won't judge him for any conclusions he comes to and that I will support him to the best of my ability. And I gave him a few vague suggestions of things he might consider trying.

So, I guess the question is ... do I just leave it at that? Is there something more I should be saying to him or doing for him?
