The word “religion” can have different meanings. At its simplest, it means “belief in and worship of God or gods” (Oxford Dictionary). But more precisely, religion is often seen as a designated set of beliefs and rituals by which people relate to a god. Thus religion (implying dogma and restrictions) is often contrasted to spirituality (emphasising freedom and feelings).
Like many other people, I have lost my religion, or a large part of it. Many others have lost their faith in God as well, though I haven’t.
This movement is one of the stories of our times.
