There are recovery programs for people grieving the loss of a parent, sibling, or spouse.  You can buy books on how to cope with the death of a beloved pet or work through the anguish of a miscarriage.  We speak openly with one another about bereavement that can accompany a layoff, a move. a diagnosis or a dream deferred.  But no one really teaches you how to grieve the loss of your faith.  You're on your own for that. . . . It became increasingly clear that my fellow Christians didn't want to listen to me, or grieve with me, or walk down this frightening road with me.  They wanted to fix me.  They wanted to wind me up like an old-fashion toy and send me back to the fold with a painted smile on my face and tiny cymbals in my hand.

Rachel Held Evans, Searching for Sunday.



A great voice that we lost in 2019.  If you have not read any of her writings, check her out.
Say each prayer as if it is your very last conversation with God and live each day as your last day to glorify God by your actions and words.
