Check out, “Losing her religion: Norfolk woman no longer ‘quivering’ in fear of God” ~ and be sure to read the companion article featuring Lts. Heather and Xavier’s approach to ministering to our family ~ “Pastors ‘preach’ with love.”
I get the feeling that Harris is a little apprehensive about printing this article ~ on her blog, she wrote:
Garrison had a story to tell. I was assigned to tell it. So that’s what I did to the best of my ability. (Although if I had the space, I’d have doubled the length of the story.)
I realize religious beliefs can be a divisive issue, especially when someone as outspoken as Garrison presents a viewpoint that counters the popular belief in the area; I’m sure someone out there will feel it’s necessary to “shoot the messenger.”
Just give me a moment to put on my Kevlar vest first.
The overwhelming majority of my hometown’s population is conservative and Christian ~ so, it should be “interesting” to see what sort of response this article invokes.
