It was fun meeting people the Harbor Market and talking about An Irreligious Faith. I had conversations with an atheist, a Unitarian, a missionary, and a young man grappling with his faith, among others.
Someone asked me, “Where do you get all your faith?” I was stumped. I certainly, don’t think I am a faith-filled person.
We were probably pointed some direction by our parents and culture in our formative years, but we eventually reach adolescence and have to decide for ourselves what we really believe.
If we just keep hanging to what we were taught, and never question it, then we get locked into a permanent adolescence and a hand-me-down faith.
It took a major prolonged crisis for me to forge my own faith. I’m a slow learner.
