Alternatively, if you have NO religion, do you have a particular story that you identify with the most?
For me, it would be the prodigal son. I fill that role on so many levels -I left home at a young age, got into a LOT of trouble, and returned - to open arms. Also, I turned away from God many times as well, and each time I have come back to Him, He has welcomed me with open arms.
What's your story?

I identify most with the Samaritan woman that Jesus met at the well. Before Christ I had led a very sinful life. I did whatever I wanted, searching for love and fulfillment. I also was spiritual (I was involved in other religions and beliefs) and I had many ideas and opinions about God that weren't right. I was a lot like her. And I was also, pretty insecure. I tried to avoid the crowd,
So when I became a Christian and I read the story of Jesus intentionally going to Samaria, just to meet with the one woman, I saw myself. He talked to her, He revealed Himself as the Messiah, He called her on all her garbage (lovingly), gave her spiritual truth, and He turned her into an evangelist. You can read it, it is short John 4.
