Book Review: Searching for Sunday

 I just finished reading “Searching for Sunday” written by Rachel Held Evans.  I can not recommend this book enough.  It should be on everyone's shelf, whether you are religious or not.    I am fully convinced that Rachel Held Evans did as much for people needing a place to renew or start faith as anyone.  She made it acceptable to have doubts, and questions and not hide from those same questions and doubts.   She did this through her poignant, truthful writing, but using her blog to reach many people like her, that felt they were living a lie by staying “inside” the church when they knew they belonged “outside” the church.   If you have done any reading of the Bible or Christian literature, you know most of Jesus’ ministry was for those that were outside the church of his time.  He welcomed those kicked out or cast out are just sinners in some form.  Held Evans does the same on her journey.  She encounters on her journey many like her but had been afraid to say the doubts and the questions out loud.   My copy is filled with margin notes, tabs, and love for this author.   Sadly she passed away in 2019, quieting a voice the world truly needed.  She left behind the books she authored, this being the pinnacle in my opinion, and an annual conference, The Evolving Faith Conference for young progressive Christians.  Once you read this book, the conference makes complete sense.
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.”
