AW/Vents/ Encounters this week: Not an encounter that I've had, but I have a friend who's been having an ongoing battle with the public school her children attend. It's been going for nearly 2 years, I think. The teachers keep pushing religious activities in the classroom and prayer and stuff. Like, before spring break one her younger children's teacher had everyone make books about the resurrection- except for friend's kid. Her book was about the Easter bunny and whatnot, after my friend made a point that the religious stuff shouldn't be part of the curriculum (they focus only on Christianity, and it's not in regards to general religious studies). The teacher made a point about it in a note home to my friend, so then my friend gets the idea that her kid is probably be ostracized by the teacher, kwim? I pointed her to the ACLU-hopefully she'll get help from them.
QOTW: Do you believe in any sort of afterlife? Not really. I mean, even when I identified as a full-fledged Christian, I still had no interest in an after-life. I remember thinking/hoping that if I asked for it, god was just let me not exist anymore when I died.
QOTW: Do you believe in any sort of afterlife? Nope. I believe you die and that's it. No soul, no ghost, no energy, no heaven. It's sad and in some ways I wish I did but I don't and I'm cool with that.

This morning in the car two songs about heaven came on back to back (knocking on Heaven's door and something else) and this brought up a lot of questions from my 6 year old about what that means. Again, really hard to explain these things when your kid doesn't understand the concept of God, prayer or religion, but each conversation helps.
Question: No I don't believe in the afterlife, I believe in living your best life because this is the amazing part.

I don't believe in anything particular when it comes to an afterlife. I like to think there's gotta be 'something' but realistically I think I know that once you're gone, you're gone & that is kinda scary to think about tbh.
