Resolved

January 15, 2009

“I will tell you what I will do and what I will not do. I will not serve that in which I no longer believe, whether it call itself my home, my fatherland, or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can using for my defense, the only arms I allow myself to use—silence, exile and cunning.”

– James Joyce

    Exxn,

    I thought you might appreciate this, if you haven’t already found it. Through my interweb travelings I found a site titled, ironically enough, “Leaving Christianity”.

    http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~slocks/decon.html

    Here’s an excerpt from the site:

    ‘I hope that these collected stories and resources will be of comfort to new deconverts. There is no “exit counselling” from the church and usually our Christian friends just want to find out “where we went wrong” rather than really listen and explore with us.’

    Sounds awfully familiar to me. Perhaps you’ve had a similar experience.

      Thanks for the link. Looks very interesting! I’ll check it out more in depth as soon as I complete my return to blogging here. Moving countries has been distracting to my blogging life.
