Constructing and Deconstructing Faith
I’m so looking forward to reading the rest of this series!
Judy, I loved your molting metaphor for deconstruction. The way it makes it hard to breathe. The necessity of shedding the old. It resonated with me deeply.
You had me nodding my head from the beginning of this, by the way. I too prayed to become a missionary—to leave the US. College marked a major conversion of my conception of the kingdom of God—from a place in heaven for disembodied souls to the renewal of all things as heaven meets earth here and now. Beholding that repositioned my whole life.
So good to read your words again, friend. This is needed and helpful.
