Barbara Brown Taylor and Shelly Miller are two of my favorite people. I admire Barbara from afar. I’m sure she is completely unaware of me, and I’m cool with that. If I ever were to meet Barbara Brown Taylor, I’d be completely starstruck, and I’d probably drool and gush at the same time. It would not be pretty, and she would not be impressed.
Shelly Miller is a dear friend, even though she knows the unimpressive sides of me. We spent some time together in Texas, in the canyon, beside the Frio River. In Texas, one afternoon, Shelly, Marcus, and I toured the Frio River, and the small town of Leakey (pronounced Lake-ee — the residents of the town would want you to know that). It was one of the highlights of that particular trip.
Shelly’s hosting an online book club, based on the book, “Leaving Church”
by Barbara Brown Taylor. See? Two of my favorite people in one place. Today, I’m hanging out over there, writing about my own leaving church experience. Most of the time, I try to just write from where I am, and I’m not sure it always makes sense. This is one of those times. If you get a minute, I’d love to know what you think… Join me?
