I’m proud to have an essay in the upcoming issue of The Christian Century. Along with other readers, I answered a query on “Risk.” I wrote about how frightened I was to join a new church after being ostracized by the old. As my readers know, my risk paid off. I now belong to a healthy, supportive congregation in which I’ve done substantial healing. My story, beginning “I sat on the edge of a rear pew and clung to my ten-year-old son,” is the eighth of ten in this series.
Thank God for women and men of faith who take risks for the sake of truth, compassion, and justice.
