| You scored as Cultural Creative. Cultural Creatives are probably the newest group to enter this realm. You are a modern thinker who tends to shy away from organized religion but still feels as if there is something greater than ourselves. You are very spiritual, even if you are not religious. Life has a meaning outside of the rational.
It’s been sometime since I’ve done one fo these online quizes (I picked up this one from Mike Todd – Thanks)… I don’t take them too seriously but it’s a fun and at times a helpful exercise. I was surprised that I was more “fundamentalist” than “idealist” though. I keep telling people I’m idealist at heart but realist in practice. I still like to think I am …
I do find that part where it says, “you shy away from organized religion …” interesting because in the eyes of the outsider I’m very much part of organized religion in Malaysia as an ordained pastor with the Lutheran church 🙂 so what am I doing in this insitution …? or should I say why am I still in it?
In short, I think I’ve move beyond a mere surface reading of what is “organized” or “not organized” (institutional or non-institutional) expressions of religion. It may be a useful catergory to start a conversation or end it. But, as far as my life has been progressing thus far … I’ve learnt (in some way) to exist in the institution I’m part of and prayerfully be one who contributes life to the organization (with loads of help and focus from the Spirit – we’re in the season of Pentecost!). I also begin to recognize in so called “not organized” informal settings … how to see the underlying “structures” that are actually there or emerging … and maybe even need to be put in place for life to flourish further.
All in all … I really do agree that “there’s something greater than ourselves!”
