One of the things I am really excited about in this season is contributing to a new channel of Deeper Story, A Deeper Church. The writers that will be contributing monthly are friends, old and new, who love wrestling, engaging, and exploring stories to find common truths. I hope you will take this opportunity to follow along.
I was one of those kids who grew up in the church. Literally. Sunday School. Big Church. Summer Splash. Mystery Trips. Lock-Ins. Communicants Class. I grew up in The Church.
But in college, I began to wrestle. Not literally. The church lost its authority, its familiarity, and its appeal. I didn’t need the rules, the judgement, or the guilt. I figured that I could keep God around, but not necessarily as a Savior, more as a wise bet, a guarantee, that I wouldn’t spend an eternity down under.
