I’m like thousands & thousands that don’t get a chance to tell you but truly admire you. I’m so sorry your life has been/is so hard with cowards voicing all their hatefulness towards you. I don’t care for most organized religions & a big reason is because of narrow mindedness. Who in the world would want to gather in a house of worship to sit side by side with people like that? It wouldn’t start my week of right…lol Perhaps your ahead of your time as your parents were. It’s such a shame that everyone doesn’t take a page out of your mom’s handbook to embrace instead of judge. I watched your series on Sundance a while back, learned allot & wanted more. I know your views are shared by the real “silent majority” young & old (im 59…lol). Someone once compared churches like hospitals. Some only need a band-aid & others need a heart transplant…lol Once again I’m so sorry that people are unkind. You know it’s not you they dislike. It has nothing to do with you really, it’s their own insecurities that makes them want to put their foot on someone’s neck to feel better. May you continue to touch people’s lives.
I just read the article about you and the Revolution Church coming to Minneapolis in the Star Tribune. I applaud your openness to share your journey and faith with the world. I live in the Twin Cities and believe there are many of us former PK’s, Pastors, and Wives, who experienced trauma in our lives during our ministries and were shunned immediately by the church rather than embraced and loved. It has been 7 years since my children and I were cruelly shunned by the church and I have not been to any church since. For years during the ministry I professed the love of the church – as God loves us. But when bad things happen in one’s life (and everyone will eventually experience it), the church leaves us in a desert of lifelessness. I believe in what you are doing – we still have faith but not trust in our churches. I want to have trust again, to speak of my faith again, and to believe in the forgiveness I professed. I know your church is God’s plan to bring many like myself back to celebrate with others the love God has for us. Thank you for openly sharing what so many have experienced but will not openly share.
