A great read. I’m one of those who left Christianity because I felt “empty.” Specifically, the Christian God returned my longing and love with a yawning cold void. But other people’s relationship with their gods is None of My Damn Business.
I have a hard time talking about devotion. The word devotion, much like the word worship, has a lot of baggage tied to it. And if you ask several people how they define devotion, you’ll get all sorts answers back. As it turns out, we all have a lot of different ideas about what it means to be devoted to the gods. And it makes sense why a lot of people would have differing, and sometimes conflicting, ideas about devotion, as the definitions for the word devotion run the gamut:
- a feeling of strong love or loyalty: the quality of being devoted
- the use of time, money, energy, etc., for a particular purpose
