Faith that Fits or How to find my place

Posted by dillon on September 23, 2003, at 0:47:42

I'd like to start out by saying that I was raised by a Jehovah's Witness mother and a Catholic father in Hasidic (Jewish) neighborhood in Queens, New York; and in my adult life I've had very close association (through volunteer work and friends) with Mormons.
Now I feel I've seen a lot of different sides of the spiritual path, and I've always found that the people in these spiritual organizations are, for the most part, most of the time, wonderful human beings who seemed to have tuned into something that was TRUE. And for a wonderful second or two, I've been able to almost tune in also; but alas I've never felt comfortable within these spiritual groups; and for that I am very sorry (for myself), as I've lacked community all my life.
So my question in a nutshell (no pun intended) is: has anyone ever had similar experiences (i.e., Found great folks/community with interesting beliefs who were kind and wonderful and yet you've felt uncomfortable and never able to fit in?) I don't know what to think. I would like to see where this post takes me.
I apologize in advance, as I hope my posts or ideas do not bring anyone down ... I've read the faq pages and guidelines for this site and I'm still not sure if I understand the rules here, but I mean no harm; I'm just here to compare notes with other spiritual seekers.
(Disclaimer: NEWBIE ALERT... I'm trying to start a new thread but if I posted twice, I'm sorry ... I'll get the hang of this yet.)
