All I'm saying is, I've now been called a heretic and been asked to preach. By the same church. On the same day. So I guess I'm doing something right?

Well, that was that. Church leadership found out about my podcast. An elder wanted me fired, senior pastor basically just said take it down. Evidently all it took was "the Bible is not the bedrock of my faith" (the implication being that Christ is). I guess I'm glad it came to this before we did an episode on like, salvation. There would probably be no coming back from that one.

Get to keep my job for now. Which means time to keep my head down while I work on an exit strategy.

Raise your hand if you've ever released a new episode of your podcast with a metronome in the audio....🙄

Week two at the UU church is upon me. After last weeks pet and animal blessing Sunday I am curious as to what awaits me this week!

Headed out to a UU church this morning. Looking forward to experiencing something new for the first time in a long time.

Right now I'm thankful for this community where exactly one person knows who I am.

I don't know why I feel like I needed to say thing out loud so publicly...maybe I thought it wouldn't be a big deal? Maybe it won't be a big deal.

So, as a pastor with VERY little idea about what he believes anymore, I did a thing with some friends and started a podcast. A very public way to talk about what I think...or what I no longer think.

I've known all along this could very likely get me fired, but I think I'm just feeling the pressure right now for some reason. I have no backup plan to support my family and that's pretty scary.
