Hi!! My posting and running has been horrible lately. I have a hard time keeping up with my 11 month old, owning a new home and TCF!
AW/Vents/ Encounters this week: Nothing much recently. See below for my only real encounter
QOTW: How "out" are you or how open are you about your beliefs? (Sorry if this has been a question already!)
I thought about this because the other day I was walking and I met a lady from our neighborhood. She was asking about DD and then started giving me all these church preschool recommendations. I just let her talk, thanked her went on my way. It didn't seem worth possibly creating tension over telling her I wasn't interested in a church preschool ( not to mention that's super far down the road!). It bothers me though that, generally in my experience, people who are religious have no issues giving me their opinions and recommendations, while I tend to let it go. Obviously this is not always the case and is just a generalization, but it makes me wonder if I should be... I don't know...standing up more?
QOTW: How "out" are you or how open are you about your beliefs? I don't hide when asked, but I'm not open about it. I live in a very Catholic area and have been told often that I'm being prayed for and looked down upon for not giving our kids a good religious footing. I'm not loud and proud.

We're not very out but really haven't had any chances to let anyone know if that makes sense. We're not the most social people. Lol And we live far from family so I think that aids in not being asked more.
I have been terrible in keeping up with the check-ins; work and school have me quite swamped. Nothing much happens around here religionwise. I receive practical training at a public school and they do teach 'religion' which, I think is supposed to be taught neutrally: 'These are the major religions of the world and we treat everyone with respect no matter what religion, if any they belong to.' Even though the guy teaching it is all about respecting each others' beliefs, he also introduced his lesson about creation narratives with some intelligent design kind of stuff, like how the world is so beautiful and like a painter or a builder, it would take intelligence, esthetic feeling and power to make it. Don't like it. He's happy to let me teach two lessons, though, which I have to do for school, so I'll try to be a contrast.
QOTW I hide my beliefs from no one, but try not to wave my atheism in people's faces either
