Pagan Blog Project: F is for Faith

One of the things that drew me first toward paganism was that faith was not required. As a likely-related note, one of my issues with Christianity was the focus on faith--the need to believe. Belief is not a thing you can force, or a thing you can choose. It is there or it is not. Faith is there or it is not.

So the notion of a religion based on practice--on things that are under your control--was huge for me.

Ten years down that road and suddenly, the faith was there. (Thank you, Aphrodite.)

Funny how that works.

Thanks
I have always felt, well, I have always enjoyed studying Greek mythology, and I am only 12. I have recently been wanting to pray or something to them, but felt silly cause I'm not sure they exist. And reading this made me feel better. I do not know who to pray to or who I am comfortable to speak with, but I am that one step closer to really doing it. So thank you, for you really helped.

Re: Thanks
I'm glad to hear it--we all have our own spiritual journey, some folks' path is a straight line, but for a lot of us it is a winding road. :)
