I'd like to spotlight a blog that I came across this morning:
I am incredibly impressed with the balance, maturity, and thoughtfulness that this blog expresses. From what I can gather about the author, she is a former Methodist become Catholic who, with her husband, once enjoyed a sacramental life within the Roman Catholic communion. I do not know her entire story, but she now identifies as a "not-theist" Unitarian Universalist and a free thinker. She often writes about what she misses in her sacramental life as a Catholic--she still craves the ritual life she once had. I don't know her reasons for leaving Catholicism, but her thoughts about wanting a sacramental-life without all of the baggage of the Catholic church resonate well with me.
