In the wake of Professor Larycia Hawkins getting fired from Wheaton College for her theology, and now the Episcopal Church being suspended from the Anglican communion, I thought it would be interesting to share our church stories of:
1. being kicked out
2. being pressured to leave
3. having no choice but to leave
It can be as short as one sentence. Like mine:
“In 2010 I had no choice but to leave the ministry and the church because I didn’t have the freedom to explore and develop my theology.”
That one sentence sums up a whole lot of agony. I’d like to hear yours. TO BE CLEAR: This is NOT a contest on who writes the best or worst or saddest story. All members are entered into the contest because it is a draw.
To enter the contest, all you need to do is 2 things!
1. Leave a comment here on my blog with your story of being kicked out or whatever. (ONE ENTRY ONLY!)
2. Sign up for my emails. (If you do, you get my free e-book, “The Stages of Deconstruction”.)
Tomorrow morning I will enter everyone into the random numbers draw and announce the winner. The winner can choose any print of their choice from my store.
That’s it! I can’t wait to hear your stories!
