Why Did I Share?

"Why Did I Share?" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

When we are deeply involved in an intimate religious community, we are encouraged to share all of our struggles.

The problem is, if you share the wrong thing you could get yourself in trouble.

I left the ministry in 2010. It was partially due to the fact that I was sharing my theological struggles (that I now know were positive developments) on my blog.

I shared my questions. It got me in trouble. 

But I'm better for it now. Truly! 

Being reprimanded, ridiculed, and rejected for struggling with your beliefs is a small price to pay for your spiritual independence!
