I was at the end of my rope. It was my second year of ministry school and nothing was making sense. I had questions for a long time, but I’d only been asking them aloud for a few months. And each time I did, I was met with the frowns and upturned noses of those who thought they knew better.
I certainly didn’t know all the answers. I’ve never claimed to have it figured out. But I have always had questions.
Today, I have the honor of sharing my encounter with Jesus with the Not Your Pastor’s Podcast. Funny thing is, Jesus was wearing a plaid button-down shirt and looked just like my Grandpa. This is a brief, 10-minute story and I think you’ll love it. Click here to listen now.
If you’ve ever struggled with the church, but longed to continue to embrace Jesus, this story is for you. If you’re ready to tell the truth about the pain you’ve encountered in the name of God, but you’re tired of living in the past, I get it. Me too. Listen to this story today.[clickToTweet tweet=”If you’ve been hurt by the church, but still want to engage with #Jesus, listen to this! http://apple.co/2os34u3″ quote=”If you’ve been hurt by the church, but still want to engage with Jesus, listen to this!” theme=”style3″]
