Comments: That other thing you're not supposed to talk about...

I find other people talking about their faith endlesly interesting, actually. The line for me is "how I feel"=good, "how you should feel"=bad. The one exception to that I can think of is C.S Lewis's Mere Christianity, where he's attempting to prove the existence of God by logic, so he's not saying "You should believe this because I said so," but "You should believe this because of these deductions you can check for yourself.

(IMO, he succeeds reasonably well in deducing God, not so well in deducing Jesus. But since a) that accords with my own beliefs and b) I was listening to a somewhat damaged audio version from the library, my opinion is not entirely reliable here.)

I find other people's faith journeys interesting too. Preach away! I've been trying to be more focused this Lent too. I hate it when I allow busy-ness to get in the way.
