Losing My Religion?

Updated: Aug 23, 2021


I’m guessing that if you’ve clicked on this article you’re expecting to read an account of how I have abandoned traditional religion for some form of new age spirituality. That’s not quite the case, so you may be a little disappointed.

There was a period where I really grappled with religion and even with the whole notion of spirituality. For the best part of well over a decade, I didn’t just lose my religion; I lost all my spiritual senses along with it. I was taught, in no uncertain terms, that science was the only truth, the light and the way and for a long time, I believed it. However, I persisted in asking the big questions and I kept coming up short.
