I have changed the focus of this space.
For the next season I am going to address what I see as distractions of American Evangelicalism. For too long there have been abuses of authority in this mainly patriarchal world. People are bound by chains of doctrine and dogma. The Reformation thinking of Calvin and the so-called Neo-Calvinists of today have put good, God-fearing people in shackles that stifle their relationships with God and others.
This space will offer hope. It will provide a safe environment where people can share their thoughts and experiences. And, I pray that it will bring healing to people who have been hurt and confused by heavy-handed teaching of people who claim to speak for God.
I know this is a bit of a departure from ‘Mike’s Place,’ but after receiving good counsel from others, this is the direction that I must pursue.
