Sara: Christian Humanism
Listen now
This week’s guest is Sara. Sara grew up in a Canadian Mennonite community and embraced it wholeheartedly. She was surrounded by evangelical Christianity and she thrived. As a young adult, she married and followed her husband into ministry. While he led, she helped as was expected of her. It didn’t occur to her until years later how little her own leadership skills had to be set aside. Sara’s husband started deconstructing his beliefs before she did, but as he was learning, she was also learning. Years later, she knew he’d become an atheist before he did. It wasn’t easy, but they made space for one another to learn and grow and move down their own paths. Today, Sara is a spiritual director for others and doesn’t have a specific label for herself, and it works just fine. “There’s a whole host of ways of being in the world…” Links Sara’s website Facebook Interact For quotes, recommendations, transcripts and more see the full episode show notes Join the Deconversion Anonymous Facebook group Graceful Atheist Podcast Merch!
