here’s a very interesting project by two guys at fuller. it’s called “letters from leavers“. it reminds me a bit of post-secret, the hyper-popular web 2.0 ‘share your secrets’ site (i wonder if it was an inpiration). this site is a place for people who are walking away from church to leave an open letter to the church. it’s worthwhile reading, especially for those of us in the employ of church leadership.
here’s a statement from tim bower (one of the two creators):
My name is Tim Bower and I am a student at Fuller Seminary. A classmate and I are doing a project as part of a Theology and Culture course taught by John Drane. The project is called Letters from Leavers www.lettersfromleavers.com and it is essentially a webspace for people who have left the Church to write a “Dear John” letter to the Church. My classmate and I want to read these letters and do some theological reflection on what they are saying and discern a way forward for the Church.
