This phrase changed my life.

I was angry at churches.
Christians everywhere had let me down.
I couldn’t be a part of it anymore.

It had all been just for show.

Then, Kendra Creasy Dean (a brilliant human and leader) said these words.

It made so much sense.
I could let go of my anger and pain
I could forgive the stupidity of people

I could being healing.

Before new life is brought into this world
there will be pain.
And in the history of the Christian church right now
we are experiencing A LOT of pain

But hold fast, dear friends,
because the pain is not pointless,

Something new is coming.
