The newspaper in the town I grew up in used to have a section of their classifieds called "Happiness Is..." For a small fee, you could tell the readership about something that had made your day by finishing the sentence "happiness is."

People would put all sorts of stuff in there. "Happiness is attending our family reunion." "Happiness is visiting my aunt's cabin on the lake." "Happiness is catching up with my old friends." You get the picture.

Happiness is something that we can all agree on its value - we all want it. We can also agree on its elusiveness - we all don't quite have it yet.

What is happiness to you? Is it something you can achieve, or is it a state of mind? Do we have a responsibility for others' happiness or just our own?

What is happiness?

unTapped is a conversation about faith and spirituality. There are many people frustrated by being forced to think of faith in the same old patterns, and would prefer to explore spirituality in different ways.

Anything goes here. No matter where you are or who you are, we want to hear from you. Feel free to join in the conversation!

You can also join us in person, every Thursday night at Short's Brewing Company in Downtown Bellaire, MI.
