Opened up my email this morning to an interesting question from an acquaintance. He is a practicing Catholic.
"Do you or your wife have any faith traditions in your family- either now, or in your upbringing? Maybe a topic for another day...."
Given the quotes I've shared the past couple of days this question comes at an interesting time.
Here is my answer: No, neither one of us have experienced or currently practice faith traditions. You'd have to go back to our grandparents to find family members practicing faith traditions. Personally, I don't believe or disbelieve in anything. Perhaps another day we could discuss this, I'm always open to listening to other's stories and viewpoints. I will say that my thinking and worldview have been heavily influenced and shaped by Daniel Quinn's novel Ishmael.
