Non-Religious Christian Spirituality

the necessity of need

I wonder if this is how God sees us? We all need something–all the time. It’s part of being human, and that need, if focused in the right way, can be a beautiful thing as it directs us back to our Source.


Does your faith life make you feel like this?

I arrived at theeffect one morning last week thinking that it would be dark and quiet as I prepared for a counseling session, but I forgot that our women’s AA meeting was just ending at that time, and the courtyard and main room were full of life and action and laughter. I loved it. As I talked with some of the women, more people showed up, and throughout the day there was nonstop activity. For many of us, our needs are directing us toward each other and our little community, and from there to our God. Too often I see my needs as a chore or an annoyance or even a weakness. I’m realizing now that God sees them as a way for us to connect–humbling maybe, but beautiful–if we choose to see them that way as well.
