Jason Boyett at “Oh Me of Little Faith” has posted my “conversion” story on his blog today, which is not not about how I became a Christian, but about how I left the pastorate and ended up where I am now at. It’s kind of more of a deConversion story. I haven’t ever shared too much of this story on this blog, since much of it is still painful and… even a little embarrassing (I’m not sure why).
Anyway, go on over there and read the post. Here is an excerpt:
Through a series of events described below, I left my Christian job, abandoned my goals of pastoring a church, and rejected several aspects of my Christian beliefs and practices. I didn’t convert to another religion; I just left what many think of as Christianity. But for me, leaving Christianity is what allowed me to better follow Jesus.
