Today we went to the Greek Festival held at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church. The Greek Festival is an annual event, but this was our first visit. There were a few vendors, and several Greek food tents. I tried the souvlaki. It was good but not my favorite. They had a beer and wine booth, although we chose to not drink. We walked through the inside of the church, and listened to a discussion on the history of the church. The smell of incense greeted us at the door reminding me how much I miss the Catholic Church.

As I work on my newest book idea about God, several questions come to mind about who God is, and what He/She is to me. I believe that God is the universe. God is creation, not necessarily limited to being a creator. God is everything and everyone. He/She is ever evolving, ever growing, not limited by the scope and words of man.

Greg and I went to the local UU church today for Easter service. This was our second Sunday to the UU, and it seems to be a very good fit for us. The UU gives us a group of people to fellowship with, which is something I have missed lately, and doesn’t require us to change or hide what we really believe. I am pagan at heart, always been a witch and always will be; I am a little bit Buddhist, and try to incorporate the mindfulness training into my daily life; I would not call myself Christian by today’s […]
