II. Some of you might be surprised by the answer. III. Religion in America is foundationally built, evolving to fit our current needs, and valued in everyday life.  Transition: The real question is: how spiritual are we and has our definition of spirituality changed?
Instead, it stayed rather true to Donald Miller’s real life yet still is able to keep the audience intrigued due to its relevancy in many daily lives. The story’s relevancy lies in the fact that many people, especially college age students, question their faith and who they are. Regardless if a person is religious or not, people still, almost indefinitely, will go through somewhat of an identity crisis at some
When I was younger all I wanted to do was find some way to fit in, even though there is no point in trying and fit in when you were born to stand out and be different than everyone else. Everyone tends to adapt and conform to what other people think is cool. Sometimes it’s hard to try and stand out though because others who think they are better than you are constantly judging, even though God created everyone as equal. I myself am sometimes scared to do something outside of the “normal”. My friends are constantly asking why I care what others think and I still haven’t really figured that out yet.
Even though most Okies were low on money and didn’t have space in their cars, they let others in need join them. As Ma says to Casy when he asks if he could go along “Why, we’d be proud to have you” (Steinbeck 101). This shows the Joads would accept a man in need into their family. The Joads accept him because they say it would be good to have a preacher along with them. Later in the story, the Joads come across the Wilsons.
There are so many different religions in the world. This gives people the opportunity to choose the religion that best fits them. There are certain factors that influence the religion we choose to abide by. For example, our family beliefs, where we were born, or even just the fact that we have been exposed to a certain religion more than another. To love your religion, and believe in a religion that best fits you is an amazing thing.
He does not care what society thinks of him and in some situations he does not even care about the laws and rules of life. People around me are to scare to over do it and care too much about the consequences. But many friends of mine have the idea of not caring and doing whatever they please but having limits to it. I believe that when we are young we enjoy life much more because we like adventures and trying new things just like Alexander. 10.
I believe that if it wasn’t for her father pushing them even after their restaurant failed, that they wouldn’t have succeeded and would have to live poorly like the majority of their family was. Maybe she believes that she would’ve been successful either way because of her many talents besides singing. Perhaps I’ll never know, but one thing I do know is that she was an excellent singer and a great role model for many young teenage girls. Unfortunately her life was taken at a very young age, but her music lives on and is played all around the world
His argument has a lot of people from different backgrounds and perspectives reading it. To start, the title, “What’s Wrong With Vocational School?” offers a different perspective in and of itself; for many traditional American middle-class families, vocational school is simply never considered. In some way, this makes his bold writing style more impressive because of the potential risk he is taking. The supposed risk, however, is in the perspective of each reader. If one views it as Murray’s support of the less talented, or less affluent, then he seems very democratic and generous.
In “Salvation” Hughes saw that nothing happened to the other boy and decided to follow him and ended up feeling extremely guilty because he really didn’t see Jesus. In my past experiences I have made many decisions from feeling the pressure from my peers. I ended up regretting it and feeling guilty because the outcome didn’t turn out to be a good one. That is why instead of looking at what others do, do what you feel is right and what makes you
More fights, more arguments and most of all more isolation between me and my parents occurred. I didn’t understand why they weren’t allowing me explore and have some fun since I knew I was only going to be young once and I didn’t want it to go to waste. Eventually I would win the arguments and they would allow me to go out in the streets at night go out and have fun, little did I know is that it wasn’t what I expected all fun and games but danger and trouble. Now I understood why they would fight against me and all the things I would see made me value my parents even more. Now my only struggle is to help and provide for my family and make them proud.
