Over at SheLoves Magazine today sharing about why I needed a break from church to let some my wounds start to heal, and why I need to be back in church to be fully well.
For the first time in both of our lives we gave ourselves permission to not go to church.
We listened to our guts, we took a break, and it healed us in the ways we needed to be healed to keep trying church in America, because we believe in the church, even though we needed time away from it. Now, I need to not give up on meeting together with other believers.
If I’m going to bother going to church, to keep trying to live out my faith in a community of other believers, it better be a place that doesn’t just invite me to look inward, but constantly beckons me to look outward, past where it is safe and comfortable.

Thanks for this, Beth. There is so much shared truth in this post for the “unraveled” and “disheveled” who’ve come back from overseas.
