Postcards from a Spiritual Journey: An Introduction

~ INTRODUCTION ~

DSC_0092 copyAS YOU KNOW, SPIRITUALITY HAS always been a vital part of my life. To some, then, it comes as no surprise that my spiritual life would be dynamic, evolving, and responsive to new perspectives. To others, especially within my Mormon community, the changes I’ve undergone over the last few years leave them confused, disappointed, or indignant. While I hold others’ opinions in high regard, I don’t want to become enslaved by them. I’d like to live more courageously, which includes showing faith in friends and family to suspend judgment as my heart and mind continue to stretch.

I am stretching. I’m discovering new ways of understanding myself and the world around me. For me, that’s the essence of spirituality—the willingness to remain open and curious, following my heart and mind to new places. My spiritual journey isn’t finished—hopefully it never is—but I’ve changed enough that you might like to know my new perspectives on life.

Over the next several days, I’ll be sharing some of those new perspectives. Even though they’ll take the form of mini-essays, they’re not intended to convince or persuade. Think of them as postcards from various vantage points along my spiritual journey.

Check back here each day this week.
