I am on a spiritual journey. Well, I suppose we all are, all the time, but I have been out on the road, looking for the answer. I have been to mosques, temples and monasteries, but the other day while at a Christian church near Suffolk, I think I had the most profound spiritual experience yet. I went to the contemporary church service Chesapeake offered me and I felt alive…for the first time in 35 years, I felt powerful; I felt Gods love.
The diverse church in chesapeake was full of people and so welcoming to all kinds and creeds looking for the answers. The priest spoke of so many amazing things like love, forgiveness, miracles and sacrifice. The Christian church in Chesapeake gave me the most spiritual moment in all of my life. I sat there in the pew and I wept and I prayed and I thanked the lord for his love. I never thought I would find the answer to my spiritual quest in a Christian church near suffolk, Virginia, especially since I have always leaned toward theories of reincarnation and the way of karma. I cannot explain what happened to me in that Christian church near Suffolk. It was like a light turned on in my soul; I just knew.
After the mass, I stayed and talked with Father Anders for a while. He relayed to me some very interesting facts and was overjoyed to have helped inspire me and show me the way. He told me that the bible is the most frequently stolen book in the world. That is rather ironic, but the father of this Christian church near Suffolk told me it was not a sin to steal the lords words if they were then used to lead the thief to righteousness. He also explained to me that there are nearly 2.2 billion Christians worldwide, making Christianity the most subscribed to religion in the world and only 0.9 percent of Christians live in the middle east.
Before I left the Christian church near suffolk where I found God, Father Anders noticed my attempt at stealing one of his bibles. He simply called to me and said, “There are 773,692 words in the bible; the longest is Mahershalalhashbaz. Come back to me when you have found it, wont you?”
