This is when my deconstruction really began. It was way back in seminary in 1983 when I was about to graduate from my Masters in Biblical Studies. My firm belief in the inspiration of scripture was pulled. Little did I know that this would start a series of collapses in the rest of my beliefs. My whole theology, over the many years, eroded to the point in 2009 I was ready to throw in the towel and give up altogether.
Then I had a dream that delivered to me the peace of mind I'd been searching for for decades.
Did I throw away the blocks?
Did I reject the meaning these symbols we call beliefs attempted to articulate?
Or did they alchemize into something more pure and true?
But I'm repeating myself. You can read about my journey in my book Questions are the Answer
