Did You Leave the Church?
Have you left the church but it hasn’t let you go?
I left the ministry in 2010 and switched my membership to occasional visitor.
Weddings. Funerals. Feel like it.
However, I talk about the church every.single.day.
This bothers some people.
They say, “You can’t criticize the church if you’re not a part of it!”
Funny, because they used to say, “You shouldn’t bite the hand that feeds you!”
I also have people say to me, “You can take the boy out of the church but you can’t take the church out of the boy!” as if I have a problem.
I love the church and would love to see it function in a healthy manner.
I believe the church has dropped the ball on people who want to grow beyond the confines that the church allows.
I want to help both the churches who want to be healthy and those who want to grow beyond it.
In fact, this is what I do.
So, yes, I keep talking about the church for these reasons.
And I love it.
