The Last Furlong

Comments on the race of life.

Today’s lesson on religion that I enjoyed – Spong

This Furlong, is not a Christian. But my sister and I, of all the Furlongs in the Furlong family, were brought up as Christians. I went to a Catholic School. We know more about “being christian” than the Furlong children who were brought up in a secular family – aka – heathens!

Except for the Furlong son, who is an Atheist, all our children have discovered their own spiritual aspects. They have become “aware”.

But I am very interested in Religion(s) – and Christianity is one that I understand best. I have read the Bible from cover to cover, and dipped into it often. It is the basis of our Western culture and has shaped our history.

But, as a spiritual creature, I can’t “belong” to any religion.

By accident today I found Bishop John Shelby Spong. He’s a rebel. I like rebels.

His criticisms of Christianity are really valid – to me. It’s fifteen minutes long and worth watching, whatever religion you are or are not for the ideas that have come out of the Christian religion have truly shaped our history.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!
