"Church or Coffee Shop?" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

Have you ever been faced with this choice?

Maybe not so close together because you don't want to be seen.

I pretty much went to church my whole life.

Then, in 2010, I abruptly left the ministry and the church.

I remember my first Sunday not working as a pastor. 

I smoked a nice cigar. 

I went for a walk.

People driving by honked their horns at me to say hi on their way to church.

It was wonderful. 

It felt like a holiday.

But, it took a while to sink in that I had just radically changed my life.

Things were never going to be the same again.

It took me a while to feel like I wasn’t transgressing.

But once I got over that, Sunday morning is my most precious morning of the week.

I’m not against church attendance. There’s a church Lisa and I will visit when we can that we enjoy.

And if you know of one that you like, take advantage of it.

Like I say, “Stay if you can, leave if you must."
