May 2011 Synchroblog – Life Unfurling

4 May
Have you found more life by letting go of something? So many of us are continuing to grow in our faith by letting go of things that we once held tightly.  These things aren’t easy to shed.  Sometimes people think we’ve lost our minds, are ascribing to bad theology, or have put our souls in mortal danger.  But many of us, in different ways, have found a deeper, richer, and riskier spiritual life as we’ve let go of certain rules, doctrines, theologies, or practices along the way.   The weeks following Easter are centered around new life, so for May’s synchroblog let’s write about some of the things we’ve let go of along the way in our spiritual journeys and what we’re learning in the process.

Please plan to submit your name, name of blog, title of post and link in the comment section of the May announcement here on this blog by 6 p.m. EST May 10th, 2011 if you would like to be included in this synchroblog.
The list of participants will be compiled and posted on 5/11/2011.  Thanks for including the link list at the end of your post, too.

    I haven’t synchroblogged forever! But seeing the topic today I could not resist!

    Here’s mine : Letting Go of a Church-centered Me

    Warning: a couple of naughty words escaped my inkwell into this one. It’s PG-13.

    Hi! I’ve just found about your synchro blog from Pam’s “How God messed up my religion”, and think it’s a great idea – not to mention good to hear from others who explore faith and life. I was wondering, if it would be okay to join you even if I write in Danish on my blog from day-to-day? (Obviously posts for SynchroBlog would be in English)

    Sigh … even later than anybody, but that’s the way it goes, eh?
