Released Wednesday, 3rd March 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
From a listener:

"I left my faith about 14 years ago. It has been a lonely experience, especially since back then, there wasn't the same connections through the internet that there are now. It seems like deconstruction is almost pop culture now, and being talked about everywhere. Anyways, I appreciate what you're doing and I'm inspired by your vision. I still 'feel' like a pastor in a lot of ways and like how you are helping people take the good parts of church and recreate them in a new context. I have been thinking about getting connected to others in the same boat as me. People who have left Christianity and are looking for community. I am from Kitchener, Ontario and I wondered if you had any connections to groups that I could connect with up here. I’m looking for a way to just talk about my experience of leaving faith and the lonely place it can be. If you don't have any recommendations, I'd love any tips or suggestions for getting likeminded people together, online right now because of COVID. I know that's a big question but any insight would be great." - Brian

Bart thinks it's harder as an adult than when you were in high school or college, but has some thoughts that may inspire you to make some practical moves. Some things we mention during the episode:
