πŸ‘ On praying whether you believe or not

Liked On praying whether you believe or not – Austin Kleon (Austin Kleon)

One of the great disconnects between me and my evangelical dad is that he wants so badly for me toΒ believe,Β and if there’s one thing I believe, it’s thatΒ belief is overrated.

What IΒ believeΒ in is theΒ practice,Β the rituals, theΒ things to do. I know my dad fears for me and my salvation, but here I am, doing the things I learned from his example and our religion: loving my family and my neighbors as best as I can, working, saying thanks, devoting myself daily to connecting to something larger than myself, etc.
