This great blog post gives voice to so many things I’ve felt but struggled to articulate in the last month, in which I, too, have not gone to church. Like Holly, I feel completely homeless.
Go read the whole thing here.
The truth of the matter is that it’s hard for me to go to an evangelical church in the wake of Trump’s election. I don’t think I belong there anymore.
I don’t belong with a group of people that by and large believes Trump is worthy of being president.
I feel uprooted, disoriented. Homeless. The evangelical church is the body into which I was born and raised, where I was educated and how I came to faith. I’m not sure where to go next.
Knowing that 80% of white evangelicals voted for Trump, I was interested to see how the leaders at our new church here in Atlanta would handle the election aftermath. Would they be silent about it? Call for unity? Reference it obliquely? Or speak out against Trump’s nativism, racism, mysogyny, etc.?
