She Can't Do It Anymore
A woman sits in her parked car watching people going into her church. The caption says, "It's Sunday morning. Sarah has driven to her church. She's parked. But she can't seem to force herself out of her car. She just can't do it anymore. She looks on, watching the people she has gathered with for years going into the building. Suddenly they all seem like strangers to her. She will watch them for a little while longer. Then she will say goodbye to them in her heart. Then she will drive away.
I post this popular cartoon once in a while because it helps so many people feel validated in their difficult decision to leave the church.
This was me. Not exactly like this, but sort of. When I knew my time was up with the church, I was gone within a month. Very suddenly.
But this cartoon captures the sadness and the resolve.
Do you identify with Sarah?
