I’m very excited to officially announce that I’m joining the ranks at A Deeper Church, a new channel of the site A Deeper Story. I’ve been following A Deeper Story as long as it’s been in existence, admiring the writers and loving how the blog has sought to both ask hard questions of the Church and give the Church good grace.
So it’s an honor that I have the chance to join my voice in with so many other writers I admire. I’ll post over there once a month and I’ll be sure to link to it over here. But you know you really want to just go ahead and subscribe to A Deeper Church right now. Right?
Here’s a bit of today’s post…

I want to write this for you. You, the one who sits with your face in your hands and begs yourself out the door into the church on Sundays. You, who questions hierarchy and recognizes the broken tendencies of leaders. You who wonders how the church can ever be its true self, how Jesus’ dream for God’s people could end up so flimsy. I want to write a story for you about what is possible.
I want to write a story about those years I scoffed and rolled my eyes, longing for answers, assuring myself I was alone in the struggle. I want to write about the conversations my husband and I had back then, the tears: “What is church supposed to even be? Is it hopeless?”…

Will you join me today at A Deeper Church?
