There is a certain age where an individual feels pressured into choosing a group in the society to identify with in terms of religious beliefs, ethnicity etc. Individuals often feel the pressure because they want to be categorized as part of one group when to the other such as peers, family and/or social groups (Hall, 1980). As an individual makes a choice to affiliate with a certain group over the other, they choose to take up all the connotations which may/not be good sometimes as part of their identity. I identify as a Christian because that is what I have been socialised to by my family and community. This label I have decided to take up as my identity has many connotations to it, it has many expectations and principles which some I do not necessarily agree with – for instance, prayer, many Christian believe in praying twice a day which I do not but because this is what happens in my family and community I have adopted this as part of my identity.

Note - these areas are subjective - carefully appraise these areas through scripture / prayer etc. And, like Abram, God has a plan for each of us. I urge you to explore those areas just mentioned and ask God again and again who He wants us to be for Him as that can be specific for each of us.

You and me have a Religious Voice in the World it just is how you can gather ways to help others and how well you can project your ideas to actually make a change in the World and the best part is Anyone can have a Religious voice in the World, no matter religion, race or gender, as the CST “Dignity of the Human Person” shows how we are all made in the Image of God and all deserve to be heard. [Slide 3: Text from St. Paul]
If the first assessment did find religion relevant, the second assessment would be vital to gain knowledge about the clients’ spiritual beliefs and experiences and how they related to the client’s problems and eventually solutions.

This constant theme throughout the autobiography Black Boy provides evidence that the way Wright was raised affected him less than his own choices. To begin, Wright’s family holds religion to an extremely high standard. His granny, aunt, and mother, like most of his community, are avid churchgoers and believers of god. They try to infuse their own beliefs on Wright, sending him to religion school and taking him to church.

Jesus, the groom, loves the bride, the Church so much that he gave his life for her and will care for her forever. Marriage has “existed eons before Christ and Christianity” (Bausch 214), but before Christ, marriage did not do anything. The second image of the Church is pilgrim. In this image, it teaches us that the Church is a community and it is on its way to its final destination, which is heaven. This image also “ In prayer, the pilgrim Church is associated with that of the saints” (CCC 2692).
