Brother Maynard’s writing played a role in framing the original TPFKATC – and his advice before I posted it was invaluable. He weighs in today with his take on this meme, The People Formerly Silent.
We’ve been in your churches for years. Some of us grew up there, some of us came from other churches, and some of us came from faithlessness. We are all around you, and have been for quite some time now.
Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of things in the church. Some days we thought “we’d seen it all” or had “heard everything,” but then something new came along, and we’d adjust our threshold of what it took to surprise us.
We are the people formerly silent.
