This I Believe

When I asked for some questions to answer, 
[personal profile] kerravonsen  asked me to talk about my world view. I immediately thought about a letter I wrote my mother more than 20 years ago, after she worried that our differing beliefs might prevent the two of us meeting in heaven. So I dug up my copy of that letter. With some considerable editing and additions, it forms the core of what I present here. 

It's long and it's opinionated, which is unsurprising. It's also under a cut; you don't need to read it, and you certainly don't have to agree with what you do read. Still, it does give you a bit of an idea of what makes me tick. 

A final thought before my verbosity gets even more verbose; in my increasingly long life, I have had the honor of making friends who don't believe the same things I do. I am glad they are willing to be my friends. Thank you all.
