This is a common everyday question that you and I have must probably been asked more than once in our lives. The answer to this is simple. Religion and beliefs shape our identity. Whether we like it or not religion has helped us gain identity, wether it’s what we eat and drink to what we say and how we dress. Religion on a larger scale, has shaped our world by creating many things such as architecture, self-improvement and more often then most what god we chose to believe in. Religion helps us find answers to the many questions we have in our lives. It helps us through many important life decisions and experiences and shapes our internal discourse which leads us in whichever way we feel, based on our religious understandings, is most likely to be right. Therefore shaping our individual opinions and identity.
All three of these very different ,yet similar in some ways, religions all have one thing in common. Even though they do have set places where they worship their gods most, they say nothing about having to be in a specific place in order for their god to hear you or worship him. They each prioritise having some sort of relationship with their god first, and that it’s not just one specific place where you have to be worship god. As a Christian I believe that, if you have a strong relationship and have a lot of faith in Jesus Christ, it wouldn’t matter where you are because you know who you are in Christ, therefore would not need to rely on being in a specific place. Whether that be church, prayer meeting to school, the street and home.
Druids go out looking for sacred spaces which are found mostly in nature. Druids believe that sacred space cannot be made or created, but that there are only certain places where they can go to worship their gods. One of the many beliefs is that the famous Stonehenge was created by ancient Druids. Druids almost always place their sacred spaces in old forest nature places with little population. They do this because they believe that their Celitic gods live in the woods and places like mountains and other natural places.
