Some people find peace and renewal with a familiar ritual while others discover spiritual fulfillment by venturing into new and sometimes unfamiliar experiences. While we all have our preferences, when we seek to nurture a spiritual life, it benefits us to acknowledge, accept, and respect that there are many ways to connect with God.
