Andrew Sullivan is exploring the divide among folks who don’t believe in God over on his blog, including some who have found a welcoming home in churches.
One commenter writes,
“Mutual respect makes our inter-faith relationship work. My wife’s
service in church (she’s now the Head Verger of an Episcopal
cathedral) is a major part of her life, and I love her completely, so
of course I support her wholeheartedly. And she respects who and
where I am as well. I too was raised Catholic, so the ancient rhythm
of the liturgy is familiar, and the music is simply amazing
(thankfully she went “nosebleed high” when she swam the Thames). I
guess I am essentially a cultural Trinitarian sacramentalist
Christian, even if I don’t believe per se. So I’ll do gladly do
Episcopal calisthenics on a Sunday, though I don’t pray, sing, or take
communion, because that would be disrespectful of the community.
As the members of my church say, “Whoever you are, wherever you are on
the journey of faith, you are welcome here.” Kinda restores my faith
