    i don't officially yet belong to an actual denomination, but i plan on becoming a member of the church i pretty much grew up in, which is a Protestant church. i guess that pretty much gives you your answer, although there are Catholic traditions i like.

    About my username: It's after a little wooded area i hang out in, near a church called Zion. Later i found out the word "Zionwood" may have political implications, but that wasn't my intent at all when i picked it.

    I'm an Episcopalian. That means it's a blend of Catholic and Protestant both.

    I did attend Mass at the Mary Queen of the Universe Shrine this evening and got a new Mary sculpture. It is the Our Lady of Grace where she's standing there with her hands open in a simple gesture of welcome. She occupies pride of place right on top of my computer desk now.

    I have a serious thing for Mary. I also am getting into St. Francis of Assisi too. Did I spell that right?

    I was raised Pentecostal and still incorporate some of that into my present path.

    Yeah, I have an interest mainly in Catholicism and Anglicanism.

    The church I worked at this summer was apparently Penecostal.

    But what denomination does the Christian part take from mostly? Or is Christian Gnosticism a branch into itself?

    Both, since I'm an Episcopalian. I often call myself an "Episcopagan."

    Hmm. I forgot I'd responded to this thread already. Silly me.

    Protestant, but I like the rosary. I've only prayed with it a couple times. But, I conntect to it and hold it somtimes. I also like Mary and certain saints. I like a lot about Catholicism, but I"m not Catholic.

    Catholicism, without the dogma, as others have mentioned. I also don't take the bible as the literal and unfallible word of God. I see Jesus as an enlightened human being, not as a savior but rather, as a guide on how to connect to our higher consciousness and be closer to God. I think Jesus was neither hardline conservative nor super hippie, I think he was like most people, sometimes uptight, and sometimes mellow. I think his life is a microcosm of each persons existence; sometimes we're teachers, sometimes we're victims, sometimes we're healers, etc.
