Losing My Religion, Again . . .

I am losing my religion, again. I have found it happens every now and then.

It is kind of like a spiritual housecleaning as I sort out the attic of my faith. My faith starts feeling cluttered and a bit confused, so I find it helpful to pick out a few things and hold them up in the light of day to see what I believe.

Like any kind of housecleaning it can be a scary thing to do, but I find it helps me keep my faith fresh and honest.

We all change and our faith should change, too.


Is It Time to Change Your Mind about Jesus?

I have been a Christian all my life. At least it feels that way.

Many of my significant childhood memories tie to church in one way or another. Memories of people, music, and fun all orbit the church of my childhood.

I was seven years old when I had my first, “I’m supposed to believe in Jesus” moment. Everyone around me that I loved and loved me believed in Jesus, so it made sense to me to believe in him as well.

But I didn’t. At least not for a while. I waited until I was twelve before I signed up as a Jesus believer.

A lot has changed since then.
