Do you have to squeeze to fit in?
"Squeeze In" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward
This cartoon appears in my new book Questions Are The Answer: nakedpastor and the search for understanding
. In this book I tell my story of how I tried, for my whole life, to fit into the church. Finally, in 2010, I left the ministry and stopped being a regular member of the church. I still visit. But just visit. Occasionally.
Is this your experience?
Some insist conformity is necessary for church to work. I don't agree.
I've experienced it in local congregations. And I'm experiencing it now online. In my online community The Lasting Supper
, there's a wide diversity of people with differing beliefs... an amazing cacophony of nonconformists I've ever met. But we get along great. It is possible.
