It’s Not a Religion

Religion. It’s something we’re not supposed to talk about at parties. I love Jesus but something in me cringes if someone calls me religious. Religion has a negative connotation for me. I think of zealots. People who picket instead of feed or love. Throughout history, horrible acts – bombing, murder, beheading – have been done in the name of religion – and still are. I am about relationship. Relationship with God, Jesus and others. There is much that bothers me…
