hmmmm, let me see, i want to make this as simple as i can, cause this question could have a million right answers... but for me the easiest answer would be ...................................... I don't have to be in church, to have church... i can pray anytime and anyway i choose, on my knees, or hammering a nail... after all, my belief or faith doesn't have anything to do with what someone else thinks... that was a very hard realization for me to be content with.

Yes...for me...could go on and on, but don't know that would be helpful.

Spirituality is my connection with whatever it is that makes the grass the grow and made all this. I don't even have have to have a definition.

And agree, I can pray anywhere, and I can find my Higher Power and live from that point inside myself anywhere...does not have to be church, for sure.

Once heard in a meeting that religion was for folks to keep them from going to hell and spirituality was for folks who had already been there...I kind of liked that.

Love,

Sam

Yeah Sam, I've heard that too. That about sums it up for me too. I find spirituality in many places. Just riding the lawn mower on my 1/2 acre, or walking the beach with the grandchildren, or a myriad of other mundane circumstances, including hearing a good sermon.
