    Religion - Very confused

    Post  Lulu on Tue Feb 21, 2012 11:32 am

    First topic message reminder :

    I am getting increasingly more confused about my religion and I feel the need to discuss it.

    I was brought up secular, but attended a Church of England school. I did all the 'churchy' things. But never really thought it was for me. When I was in my twenties I became increasingly interested in Judaism and I underwent a conversion. I was happy for a while but never really felt accepted. Judaism is a very family and community based religion. I have no family and I'm very quiet and private.

    I live fairly far away from the nearest Jewish community and started to drift away and thought about going back to my roots. I found out that my father had been Catholic and most of my mothers too. I descided to attend Mass with a friend. I liked the peacefulness of the church and I likes Mary and the Saints (Sorry if this sounds nieve) I spoke to the priest and descided to convert (Again) to Catholisicm. But in the end I couldn't do it. It didn't feel right. I didn't agree with anyone at the classes and didn't 'get the Jesus thing'.

    I started to look further back, at paganism, and liked what I read. I love animals, nature and the environment. I have been vegetarian for many years and am peaceful and caring. The problem is I'm not sure I can worship more than one God and I'm not sure about which path I would take.

    I don't want to be one of those people who just tries out different religions and has a different one each week. I just feel lost and need to find my way.

    I think I did just want to get things off my chest, but then I felt a bit embarassed about it. That's why I didn't get back in touch for a while.



    I'm sorry you felt this way Lulu, but i'm glad you came back we have so many lovely people here we're very lucky. I hope you continue to enjoy the forum.
