Hello all! I am currently a student working two jobs while earning a B.A. in Religious Studies. Once I graduate, I plan on working toward a MDiv from a divinity school to be ordained. My religious affiliation is currently with the United Church of Christ, though I love the Anglican/Episcopalian Church. I am in awe of GOd, and I understand that my finite mind can't comprehend the Infinite Divine. Understanding this, I strive to experience the Divine. I realize that Christ is in all - as Colossians says- and realize that the Word has always existed. I understand that there is an Absolute, but we come looking toward it with different backgrounds and traditions. I lean heavily toward a perennial philosophy, but I still think of it from my tradition. The Christian one. I enjoy the mystics and contemplatives, and I plan on practicing contemplative prayer. For Christ is the only Way, yet Christ is in all. We can become one with the Divine, but can never be the Divine. Unity yet division. A paradox of live. That is salvation.
