Recommended Read: Rebecca Miller on Grieving the Dysfunction and Brokenness of Evangelical Christianity

Rebecca Miller over at Patheos wrote a solid blog post in 2017 about grieving the brokenness and dysfunction of Evangelical Christianity. This is a post I wanted to add to this blog as it was too good to pass up. 

“Tears are the silent language of grief.”

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;

The other day I stumbled upon an article that spoke to me and I put it into my list of work to do at this blog. The article is at Patheos and by Rebecca Miller. In the article she discusses the brokenness of Evangelical Christianity and its dysfunction. She talks about dealing with its brokenness through the Kubler-Ross stages of grief. I was impressed by the article and I wonder if that is part of what this blog, The Wondering Eagle is all about. In many ways I keep focusing on the scandal, chaos, corruption, problems and issues with Evangelical Christianity. While this post deals in part with some politics the brokenness is far deeper than just that topic. You can read more in, “A New Normal: Grief and Facing the Brokenness in Evangelicalism.”
