This is officially my 100th post on this site – although I have authored a few at NorthVU’s site (about 10 or so)…but this is my 100th here…almost 2 years of blogging…what have I learned – a lot!
- I have read 1/2 the Quran up to this point (and blogged with people working w/Muslims)
- Discussed many an issue with Atheists – concerning biblical texts, history, and life in general
- Discussed Mormon issues and pondered them
- Learned Evangelicalism might not be altogether correct – in fact – it isn’t
- Talked about First Nations culture and my faith – the inter-twining
- Met a variety of Christian people with a variety of theologies – most quite nice
- Blogged with people concerned with the Christian airwaves in Canada
- Blogged with locals from Saskatchewan about life and faith (and Canada)
- Learned and questioned a lot of what I once believed about this faith
- Had an idea abound then levelled it for a future date (ie: Action Group)
- Made a lot of friends and have discussed all kinds of issues with them
- I am still Losing My Religion…
I have learned a lot from all the people I have blogged with and I still have a ways to go – which I am thankful for – lots of people have opened my eyes for me. I would like to thank Bruced for all the people I met via his site and the intro to universalism, To Chris (ledge) for his quirky stories and great spirit, Jim/Cinder/JollyBeggar/Hineini/Ken/Tim/URSA/MyGarden – for all the Saskatchewan flavor and what they have shown is around me – and it is good, HIS for all the great posts he put down and the discussions he got rolling, Dagoods for our disagreeances but also for his knowledge, Jefe/Dorsey/SCP – for all the great church questions they got me involved in, Jim Jordan – for being a long time support and getting me to look into some political stuff, John Schuck for his liberal views – really got me thinking and seeing things in new ways, Gracehead for some of the best discussions I have ever had on the internet, Burning Bush for the blogs and our head-banging on ideas, and Heather for her blog and the way she thinks – got me looking into the more Hebraic ideas within this faith. I am grateful.
In the end of the day I am still losing my religion – questioning it and seeing it re-shape before my eyes. Who knows what will change in the next 100 posts – but I do know I like to learn – and the crew I read right now is making that happen – thanks!
