July 20, 2006 - A Bumpy Road

As I begin the first post to my new BLOG (I admit I am a blog virgin). I was thinking about the events of today and the feeling that I usually get when the politics of "denominational" churches makes me want to run and hide.

Jesus stated in so many words that a prophet is not honored in his own town. In fact when He was preaching one day, someone asked who he was and the reply was Jesus of Nazareth. The questioner commented that nothing good came from Nazareth. So if He was not respected; what chance does a poor pilgrim like me have?

I find that I am most at peace when I am not part of a formal religious setting. Why this is the case I am still trying to figure out. Hopefully, I will get some glimpse of an answer soon.
