Am I All Alone?

Am I All Alone?

One of the things that stands out as I talk to people about transitions of faith is that they feel so alone. Even when they have one or two friends transitioning with them, it can feel like the whole world is against them.

You are not alone. 

Faith transitions happen all the time, to all kinds of people, in lots of different settings. 

Most of the people that I talk to are coming out of conservative evangelical/fundamentalist traditions. The simplistic rule based faith, with lots of prescriptions about how to make life work, just aren't working anymore. And many times, the people that you've shared huge parts of your life with, don't understand what's going on.

Leaving this kind of system behind means that not only do you lose your personal sense of faith, but you lose your community, your friends, and often the activities that brought order to your world.

It is like hitting a brick wall and then being left to clean up the mess all by yourself.

But at Wounds of the Church, we want you to know that you are NOT alone. Many, many of us, if not all of us, have gone through or are going through a major faith transition. Our stories are here to help you find stories that sound familiar and to let you know that you are not alone.

You are not alone.

So don't give up. Keep reading. Keep looking. And trust us, you will survive. It just may not look like anything you ever expected.
