Works for Me

Posted in to be categorized on November 2nd, 2006 by skip

I recently read a column in the Faith section of the newspaper. The column is new and targeted at twenty-somethings. The paper’s goal is probably to attract the Internet Generation that doesn’t read the paper. I find the column an interesting source of how people think about God. Here is a quote from that recent column written by a twenty-one year old woman.

…how I approach religion. I gather as much information as possible and use it to formulate something that works for me.

In one way or another we all do this, we decide how big we want our God to be. I would like to be able to speak with this young woman a year or five years from now. If she truly does “gather as much information as possible” and find out what is working for her now.

When do we know enough? At what point do we decide – my box is big enough.
