About three months ago my friend introduced me to your podcast after I confessed to him that I was on a journey of deconstruction. I have always attended evangelical style churches, although I’ve done some church exploration in the Catholic, Mennonite, and Mormon faith traditions. I currently attend a Calvary Chapel church and am a great fan of their devotion to the scriptures and balance of Holy Spirit led and Jesus centred living.
Despite all of that, my own faith journey has brought me to the place where I have come to realize that there is no such thing as an infallible interpretation of scripture. After carefully collecting my thoughts on this idea I started writing some thoughts into a scribble pad that I called “uncertainty in the design of God”. Imagine my surprise when I started listening to your podcast to see that you’ve written several works on certainty. The way that you describe the ideas I’ve been having is uncanny and feels supernatural to me, if I can say that.
Anyways, my question for you is this. I am at the stage in my journey where I want to be surrounded by people who can help me flush out some of these things I’ve been wrestling with in my deconstruction and help me to start reconstructing. I want that for my family too. Do you have any suggestions of church denominations in Canada that would be a good place for us to check out?
Thanks! And again love the podcast!
