Baha'i and Beyond in the Bible Belt
I grew up as the son of two big-city hippies who settled down in the middle of nowhere, Oklahoma. Raised in the mystical Eastern religion of the Baha'i Faith, I was constantly at odds with my rural surroundings. After I finished college I continued questioning, looking for something that was a better fit, eventually landing in a UU congregation. Now, a couple decades later, I find myself going further, searching for more meaning in the world around me.
