Ray, I miss my Mormon roots

Posted by Dinah on January 6, 2004, at 0:44:42

My forefathers and foremothers came across to Utah with the handcart companies. My earliest recollections are of Sunday School and Primary and Sacrament Meeting. And of being horribly embarassed by my mother during Fast and Testimony Meeting. :)

I sometimes think half the problems I have in my Protestant Sunday School come from the philosophy I absorbed growing up, since in many ways I see Mormon philosophy as closer to Judaism than Protestantism. I guess you can take the girl out of the Ward, but you can't take the Ward out of the girl.

I feel so betwixt and between sometimes. Raised both Catholic and Mormon, I never fit in with Catholic. I was almost, but not quite Mormon, and not quite Protestant either. And I suppose if I converted to Judaism, I'd be not quite Jewish either.

I wish I could find a spiritual home...

I wish I could feel the way I did when my Grandfather baptized me and I was confirmed, and I gave my first and only testimony.

Sorry, I guess I'm feeling a bit melancholy for things lost today.
