I was a disturbed pastor. Meaning… I constantly struggled with my calling and vocation, as well as with the Church and its theology. For 30 years!

Now that I’m free of it, I have no regrets. The fight was worth it. I’ve not only learned from it, but grew from it. I do not reject it. I see now it is all subsumed into who I am.

And I’m grateful.

I have news! I’m going to be launching, by the end of this month, a course and community for pastors struggling with the ministry, leaving the ministry, or having left the ministry. You can check out what I’ve done so far with it HERE.

    My hope is that your new site, for pastors that are leaving the full or part-time ministry, is a success.

    Those pastors need a safer place to explore their thoughts, and find kindred hearts that will not condemn them, bully them back into line, or leak the information to their employer.

    I always thought you were quite the disturbing individual 😛

  3. Thanks Caryn. I’m looking forward to it.

    I am disturbing Jordan, especially to myself.

    ‘disturbing, especially to myself’. That brought a wry smile to myself……because that’s what I am too.

    Although I don’t post as often here, I do ‘read’ everything that you draw. Many thanks for your output.
