    Faith Deconstruction with Marie Griffith

    Faith Deconstruction with Marie Griffith

    I can't wait for you to meet my friend Marie Griffith. We met through the Flying Free sisterhood and are deconstruction journeyers who find ourselves knee-deep in theology, ministry, and the "untangling" reality of deconstruction. Recently we co-lead an online study of my recently published journal, Deconstruction: Your Journey in Faith. I know that this is just the beginning of our ministry relationship. 
    Resources Marie mentions include:

    Deconstruction: Your Journey in Faith

    Deconstruction: Your Journey in Faith

    I am excited to announce that my study journal is now published! You can find it on Amazon as a paperback or Kindle, although I recommend the paperback for ease of writing. With the purchase of the book you gain access to audio teachings for each of the six modules. The podcast you are listening to is Module 1 of the book.
    I would love to have you join the online Clarity Cohort, starting May 13th. It's a small-group "feel" and all online. I will keep the numbers low so we have the ability to really get to know one another and dig in to the discussion. Find out more on my site.
    What Is Faith Deconstruction?
    Deconstruction  is  synonymous  with  the  discipleship process  known as  spiritual  formation. Christians   mature   in   faith   through   disciplines including prayer,  personal   study,   and   formal teaching within church and ministry contexts.
    Sometimes teachings and experiences can be unhealthy and even abusive. During deconstruction, Christians faithfully examine  how  our  relationship  with  God  has  been  influenced  by  traditions, theology, church leadership, and societal factors experienced in our modern context.
    Imagine sitting at a table in front of a pile of miscellaneous puzzle pieces. Deconstruction involves looking at each piece of the puzzle and finding where it fits, or making the determination that it does not belong at all.
    Deconstruction is unique for each believer but typically involves wrestling with Bible translations, teachings, traditions, and personal experiences. Those who embark on the journey meet pushback from church leaders, family members,  and  friends.  Misunderstanding,  they  believe  that  deconstruction means walking away from God when it typically leads to a much deeper faith.
    Your story will be unique. I hope that the exercises and Scriptural passages within this study provide a framework to better envision the puzzle you are piecing  together.  When  you  have  completed  this  study,  your  journey  won't be  over,  but  I  believe  you  will  be  empowered  and  equipped  to  continue.

    2020.4 Part 1: Angela Rasberry Roberts

    2020.4 Part 1: Angela Rasberry Roberts

    I am honored to share the next two-part podcast with my friend Angela. We met in a support group for abuse survivors and she is an integral part of the Deconstruction Zone, a private Facebook community I facilitate.

    Personally, I value her perspective, because her journey has included an evangelical upbringing, ministry leadership, and overseas missions work. A destructive marriage led to many changes in her life, but ultimately brought her to the love of her life, Krissy. Angela has a beautiful unfolding story of healing, love, and ministry that I can't wait for you to hear. 

    Look for part 2 soon, along with some helpful resources mentioned over the course of our conversation.

    Jan is a licensed grief, life transition, and anxiety counselor in Alabama. She is a loss survivor and that led her to counseling just a few years ago. In our podcast Jan shares her journey, which includes time spent as a church leader and a faith seeker in a season of deconstruction. 
    In part 2 we discuss women's ministry, spiritual meaning of 3 words: wrestling, inclusion, and exclusion, recovering from the emotional toll of counseling, and how Jan built and launched her business right in the midst of a pandemic.
    If you are in the state of Alabama, you have the ability to work with Jan. Find her practice here: https://backporchcounseling.com/
