Husband and I just got assigned to speak and the topic is….
“Crises of Faith”
I feel like I’ve just been handed the most true-to-my-life speaking topic ever imagined! And it’s on my last Sunday so I won’t have to be too worried about social capital and the torpedoing thereof.
I feel as if this could be an opportunity to do some real good–to be honest, but still respectful. To let people out there know that it’s okay to raise an eyebrow every so often (or oftener). To let people know that it’s a good thing to ask questions if something doesn’t feel right because isn’t that how this church started to begin with? Aren’t questions the catalyst for truth-seeking and truth-finding?
So, if you had this (golden, beautiful, amazing, once-in-a-lifetime) topic, what would you choose to say? What experiences would you like to share? What facts do you think would help the questioning-kind of person (like so many of us in the Church who feel “broken”)? What would be the one thing you’d hope to hear if you were in the audience?
