100% UU

Plagued by insomnia I’ve spent the night on a spiritual Google mission.  I took Select Smart’s ‘What Religion Are You?’ quiz, something I’ve taken before with virtually identical results.  It doesn’t surprise me in the least that my only 100% category is UU– and I credit quizzes like these for bringing me to Neshoba.  The very first one I took matched me perfectly with West African Tribalism [say what?], which does not have a large Memphis area contingent, or any organized gathering.  Settling for ‘second place’ I found my spiritual home at 7350 Raleigh-Lagrange.  One visit was all it took.  I owe a debt of gratitude to my Comparative Religion professor at the University of Memphis for requiring us to attend a service from an unfamiliar faith tradition.

How do you answers align with the way you see yourself?  I’d never think my beliefs are almost a quarter Mormon [do I qualify for magic underwear?!] or a little over two fifths Scientologist [don’t audit me].

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,



About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
