When Church Hurts: Part 5

scienceoftruth

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsFor a few years, I had the privilege of serving in my church in several ways. I took classes, my husband and I took care of a significant portion of the landscape (which had been sorely neglected) – creating sacred spaces for people to find quiet time with the Lord, and I assisted with preparing food for Sunday morning fellowship. I also had the opportunity to teach classes over our final year there. … [Read more...]

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons This was the first chapter that the book went flying. Honestly, I’m surprised I got to chapter three before that happened.

When Church Hurts Part 4

blacksheep

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsDuring all of these years, I would come to church, sit four or five rows from the pulpit, right on the center aisle, and listen to Elliot and others preach grace, forgiveness, reconciliation, and restoration. Elliot preached and preached. I wept and wept openly. I could not sing. I could not so much as close my eyes in prayer. I could not stand for the blessing at the end of the service. I knew that no matter how much Elliot preached those words to everyone else in the congregation, they were not for me. And I would email him and tell him as much. Without response. … [Read more...]

Ophelia Benson of The Free Thinker has written an awesome take down of the blog post we shared a small part of recently by Karl Heitman. You remember Karl? He's the pastor that said he would not allow his daughter to go to college if her motives were not right.  Here is what Ophelia had to say about Heitman's upset at the idea of women being educated like men are: What he means, of course, is that the idea that girls and women are human beings just as boys and men are, and should have access to education just as boys and men do, has infiltrated the Christian culture so thoroughly that even Christians are shocked that he plans to prevent his daughter from getting an education. There's a n … [Read more...]
