Religion

Today my sister heard from a long lost friend of ours. Joe used to be my best friend back when he was single. For a while he event dated my sister. Then he got married had kids and “poofed” out of our lives. He is going to BWI this weekend to visit his daughter who is a sophomore there and decided to reach out to my sister Lois. Lois was so excited to hear from this dear man that she sent me a note with his phone number. I immediately called Joe and it was like we spoke yesterday. Through Joe’s marriage he became a very religious Jew. I asked him if he was still Orthodox. He said yes with a giggle. I think he does cheat a bit but his daughter is very strict he explained to me. We finished our conversation and hung up. It got me wondering how come I never grasped religion. I feel religion is a huge part history lesson and I like history. So why the gap? How is it a young woman of 19 can be so passionate about something I can even begin to grasp. I realized that religion my be a form of a hobby – but not really. We are all so diversified in our hobbies that some gravitate to things easier than others. That is the best that I could come up for now.

This is my story for now and I am going to be sticking to it!
