I humbly ask to step into the sacred circle..I am simply, humbly and at total peace with being a believer in the creator, His Son and the Holy Spirit who is my guide., a Christian by definition..I was not raised in one of the many different beliefs of Christianity, but I searched many of them and found that after you stripped the doctrines and rituals away that we all desire to be with the creator. We may all follow different paths as we search for Him.. I think we should gladly step into anothers path now and then and walk with them in love to help them along the way if they desire our help...I am at peace that I believe I am on the right path for myself and will gladly reach out to help others who are searching for their path which may not be mine..I have finally cleared all the obstacles from my personal path and as the years more rapidly pass my path is beginning to narrow as I approach the end where my creator awaits me..

I quietly slip into the circle to observe and Be. I believe that labels have their place but can also limit us, so I say with some caution that I believe in Spiritual Atheism - we are part of a greater life force, but with no creator behind it. And, in this circle I see Blue and June and am at peace that I have stepped into the correct place at the correct time.

ptsum, what a wonderful post, thank you. I am a Christian and this is what I believe, Jesus is the way to Heaven, the Bible is the Word of God, God is good ALL, the time. I also believe there should be more post like this one, we don't all agree and never will. I also believe some posters here have enough love in them to over look these differences and still be civil, there needs to be more that.

Hey MTbound! So good to see you on here again!

Oh ILNC, good to see you again too!!! I was hoping to see you pop up in this thread.
For the record, Blue, June, and ILNC have all been a part of my journey as women of power (the good inward kind) - different belief systems, but all with gentle spirits and love.

If I may, I would like to just sit quietly inside the sacred circle and enjoy listening to others...

Ptsum, I have always enjoyed your wisdom and gentle spirit.
