← Missing God

I can't help thinking that I would be glad to return to a belief in God, no matter how false this idea might be. Even a false hope may be better than no hope at all.

Sounds like you're a perfect candidate for the Church of England.

Or possibly more helpfully, why did you leave the Quakers? I've got quite a lot of time for them (all that peace and love stuff) and they actually have a group for atheist Quakers.

Is it God you miss, or the sense of community from belonging to a religion, I wonder? I'd probably miss the fun of Christmas with my young kids, but I don't actually have to believe in Santa Claus to participate.
