I know safe and supportive Christian spaces can be really hard to find, so I created one and I'd love to welcome you into it...Right now, exactly as you are!
The Faith Deconstruction Cafe supports Jesus-loving women and non-binary people who are disconnecting from the gender bias, racism, patriarchy, or other hallmarks of toxic religious culture
For the last decade I've been on my own journey to break free from learned smallness and step into wild sacred holy womanhood. I loved God and didn’t want to leave His side, but when I looked at my children I knew I was still passing baggage that hurt me, on to them. I wasn't OK with that.
The GenXer in me KNEW there had to be a different way.
Surely it wasn’t God that made people act this way.
I began to untangle the God who created men and women to be equal partners from the toxic patriarchal religious culture who preferred to use our power for their own purpose without honoring our God given equality.
It took a lot of years to sort it out.
Conferences and retreats.
And even a couple of college degrees.
They were hard to find but they became allies and mentors who both challenged and championed me to a freer being.
And I’m here now, with a few more scars and a few more laugh lines on my face, and it’s glorious.
It was worth every single tear.
I want you to get here to because waking up everyday as your wild sacred holy self is the way God created you to be.
It’s where God is calling each of us to go.
The Holy Spirit will lead the way.
Jesus will give you rest when you are weary.
