Last week i had the opportunity of presenting part of my research in the Netherlands at the Australian Association for the Study of Religion Conference at the Australian Catholic University in Melbourne. The presentation was a look at place as the product of an emotional attachment to God. Pearson Correlation and Multiple Regression analyses were used to examine the relationship between the place attachment attitudes and attachment to God behaviours of members (n=175) of the African diaspora in the Netherlands. Analyses of the results allowed for clarification of two motivational systems identified within this circle of place spirituality, showing that experiencing God as a safe haven is quite likely to happen when the Netherlands is perceived as unsafe or insecure for members of the African diaspora living there.
