Feeling Adrift? It Takes Time?

“One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.” André Gide

Saliboat_adriftFor those who left the shores of traditional church many years ago, and also for those who are just now dipping their toes into the water of organic church… the message is the same: it takes time.

Mostly it takes time because we have been so trained into religious and institutional mindsets that we venture out with one foot in both paradigms — both the old and the new. We find ourselves stuck between two worlds, sometime, for an awfully long time.

My message today is simple. If you feel adrift. If you are starting to feel like you fit in nowhere, if you wonder if you have left something behind and you just can’t figure out how to ‘ignite’ the new thing that you thought would look like this or that by now… take heart. This is common and normal. Keep on.
