I've been reading some of your posts and thought I would like to create a profile and join. Seems like a nice community of thoughtful, caring people!
Not sure if my path is a little unique. I grew up in a non-religious household and then started attending Catholic Mass on my own a few years ago. I went through RCIA and everything and even participated in assisting at Mass. I decided to be intellectually honest with myself and acknowledge that I probably never truly believed. I certainly tried hard to force myself but it just never made sense. I do feel like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders.
I was actually in the book store tonight reading a bit of Carl Sagan's Demon-Haunted World and that did make sense! I think I'm on the right track now.
Anyways, nice to be with you all.
