It’s not often that you get an idea that might change the world, and you actually have the capability to do it. I have a baby girl (my first) coming in less than one (1!!!) week so my brain has been going a million miles an hour and wrestling with the question: “What have I done to improve this place?”. I have recently lost my faith, but I have decided to be a moral person, so how do I manifest this morality in a way that improves the world for my daughter? A few weeks ago, I found an answer to this question.
As you may have heard, a few years ago I stepped away from my faith. Since then I have been wrestling with rebuilding my identity: which elements of Christianity will remain a part of the core of who I am and what I will fight for. I don’t regret my days in the church because I lived a life that enriched those around me, and for that reason I have decided to keep the following Christian virtues (among others): community, self-sacrifice, and taking care of the poor and marginalized.
