    or have you since gone elsewhere to find your spiritual home...?

    or did you perhaps leave the church of your childhood, only to return later...?

    the system has a limit on amount of characters for the thread title...

    otherwise I would have included "synagogue, mosque, coven, etc."... :redface:

    Nope. I'd like to go back, but don't see the sense of it as I'm not allowed to receive the Sacraments any more. Long story.

    As for my spiritual home...

    No. I purged the time waster of religion from my mind years ago. Churches and church members ruined religion centuries ago.

    I was brought up as a non-believer with my mother's leaning toward witchcraft so, no.

    I was raised in a grand old denomination. If it hadn't gone Liberal, I'd still be a part of it. It left me.

    Not no but going to hell no...

    Raised Catholic until I was old enough to think for myself, about 11 maybe 12, never looked back.

    Not my thing, but to each his or her own.
