A Guide to a God-Sized Puzzle

For those who are interested, here is a simple guide to my Blog Series which touch on a variety of topics under five main categories: Personal, Inter-Faith, theology, spirituality, and Miscellaneous. Since this blog is about my personal journey to understand various views about the Divine my beliefs may sound different in various posts. My views have evolved, and hopefully will continue to evolve, throughout the life of this blog. If this is confusing or if you have any questions in regards to my current views feel free to fill out the blue comment box to get in touch with me directly. No personal information will EVER be published. To read a specific series in chronological order you must scroll to the bottom as the posts are ordered from new to old, top to bottom.

Peace and Blessings.
