What I am into – March 2016


 Post Traumatic Church Syndrome (3/5)–    I can relate to  Post Traumatic Church Syndrome. I still cringe every time I walk into church. A lot of churchy things bring out bitterness. I have lots of bitterness toward the Church. I have been trying to heal and forgive. I liked that she explored different religions.

Mudhouse Sabbath by Lauren Winner (5/5)- I like how she talks about her former Jewish practices and how to fit them in her Christian faith.

Still: Notes on a Mid-Faith Crisis by Lauren Winner (4/5) -This has been my least favorite so far of her books so far. However, it has some good insights on being in the middle of your faith journey.

Wild In the Hollow by Amber Haines (3/5) – It was a sweet little memoir but it is not as good as everyone says it is.

My faith through loneliness

I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.

“Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn’t people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them?” – Rose Kennedy

My whole life  I struggled with loneliness. I have been often on my own. God feels far away sometimes. He feels out of reach. Sometimes getting myself to read the Bible is difficult. Praying feels suffocating.  I feel all alone. But I compare my faith to a candle. When I am engulfed with loneliness the light is still there. The light flickers on and off because it is struggling to stay on. However the faith is still there. It just sometimes looks as small as a mustard seed. According to God that is more than okay.
