Finding faith...and other things

On my quest to understand (my) faith, I often run across articles and/or books that make me shake my head...yes, yes, yes.

Here is one of them.

My favorite passage...
Can he intervene in a crowded shopping lot, but not in Darfur? Will he get me a space right next to handicapped parking, but not cure my father's cancer? Who wants to believe in such a God?

And then there is politics.

If the term "Christian America" derives merely from demographics then we are also a female nation and a nation of brunettes.

Sounds good to me. :o)

How much do you really know about the beliefs of the Founding Fathers?

I am loving Beliefnet.com for it's wide variety of viewpoints and explanations.

And can I just say that I love Barack Obama?

(yes, I should be working)

Yes, this is my problem with faith and religion. My husband has some "neatly tied up with a bow answer" that I find useless.

Yuck. I just am giving up on trying to understand it all right now. Like for instance, I keep thinking about a very sweet woman I know talking about how she had looked all over for one of her child's belongings and couldn't find it. So, she prayed about it. And, VOILA!! Shortly thereafter it appeared. Yikes. If I can't understand why God gives a rat's ass about a child's toy being lost instead of the gazillion huge issues going on in our world, well then I am just a lost cause.

Oh, and I love Barack Obama too.
