Unpacking Faith is a blog about my spiritual journey.
I used to go to church about 3 days a week. I was married to a pastor. I was his assistant pastor. I had my reservations about the Church (with a big “c”, as in the universal institution as opposed to my local church) while I was actively participating in church leadership. As my marriage failed and I peeled myself away from the church and the people that, in many ways, kept me from dealing with the issues that were affecting me most, I grew even more disillusioned. I don’t attend church anymore and I don’t know if I will ever return to organized religion. I can’t say for sure, at this point in my life, what I believe about God and religion. I’m in the process of sorting all of that out.
My religious experience has been Christian, in various incarnations. I have very strong negative sentiment towards Christians and the Church for many reasons. I express those feelings freely on this blog. This in no way implies that I believe Christians are dead wrong to the exclusion of any other faith, it just means that I’m reacting strongly against what I was a part of (and in many ways ashamed of). If any of this interests you, I’d love to discuss your belief system and any journeys through, to, or away from faith that you may have experienced. It helps me to hear other voices. I’d love to hear yours.
