a religious minority

as much as i LOVE it here, sometimes i feel a bit out of place in san francisco.

this is often due to the fact that: 1) i am in my first semester of law school & i have little time to spend building a community around myself of people that can build me up & encourage me (besides other law students) & 2) i feel like a religious minority a lot of the time.

this is probably the first time in my life that i have felt so strongly that i fit #2 above. more so than growing up in california. more so than living in texas. more so than living in washington, dc. i don’t know if it’s the city i live in or the fact that (due to #1) i have not gotten as involved in a church as i would like.

i look forward to doing so in the future. (after this semester’s finals!)

i read this verse this morning & it truly comforted me…

for in CHRIST, neither our most conscientious religion nor disregard of religion amounts to anything. what matters is something far more interior: faith expressed in love.

(galatians 5:6b, the message)
