I’d like to point out for the uninitiated that these posts are for you guys to talk about anything you want. The pictures are chosen base on feeling or in the case of the Gaza picture… I just wanted to have a HUMP DAY. I did not expect it to cause a religious debate.. But I feel the need to express my love for the other side of the situation.
I’ll try to do better. I do not want to steer conversation. I just wanted to have a pretty picture on the off topic forum everyday.
This forum is just for random conversation.
I’ve lived a blessed, if solitary life. I’ve been a lot of places including Jerusalem. My mother bought me a bible while I was there. It is encrusted with mother of pearl. It is likely a touristy thing but I carry it when I go to funerals or other church occasions.
As a world traveler at a very young age, I was awed by Jerusalem. And much to my parents chagrin, I was in love with the call to prayer that happened multiple times a day at my house. I love that sound. I do not understand why people that consider themselves religious kill those with other religious beliefs.
If you believe in any religious scriptures, the end times all happen in the same place for the same reason.
Counting Crows is a favorite of mine for this lyric.
Help me believe in anything
I want to be someone who believes
Mr. Jones and me tell each other fairy tales…
I was raised in the church. I want to be someone who believes… I just don’t. Or maybe I do. I dunno. That’s the definition of agnostic. I respect everyone who believes.
I have the bible from Jerusalem that my mother gave me, I think for high school graduation. I also have a huge Koran that the Libyan Embassy gave us. In English and in Arabic. I treasure them both equally.
I’m a lost soul.
The purpose of daily tea is not for you to comment. It’s for you to share your struggles as I share mine.
Or talk about funny shit. Or just talk. Because we all need to just TALK.
This is an open forum. Please talk about whatever interests you for the day.
