In a post reflecting on her feelings after the World Vision employment policy reversal, blogger Rachel Held Evans writes:
“I think a lot of us are working through some feelings of grief as we find ourselves struggling, perhaps for the first time, with our religious identity. “
I was struck by the similarity to what it was like for me coming out as a lesbian later in life. I THOUGHT I knew everything about myself, what what I felt, what I believed…and suddenly I realized I had no idea. No clue about what’s true because if part of what I was taught to believe isn’t actually true, then what happens to the rest of it?
And with this post, some of the comments are well worth reading.
