Heidi Daniels writes The girl formerly known as as a “normal Christian”. Part Six in this ongoing story.

You may know me as a violinist, as a teacher, as a sister, daughter, wife, and friend. You may have noticed that I don’t attend a church building anymore and worried about me, maybe thinking that I have really fallen off the deep end theologically. Maybe you haven’t talked to me in a long time because you are convinced of this. Maybe you’ve thought I’m turning away from God, or away from the Bible, or at least away from the Body of Christ. The truth is…

I’m a girl who deeply desires God. I believe I’m his image-bearer, though I’m still learning what that means. There are many like me, many who for years fit inside status quo Christianity. Many who, like me, find that the old boxes no longer contain the expansive life that Christ has filled us with. Many who have quietly and sometimes not-so-quietly found new ways to live out our lives as Christ followers.

Please read the whole thing.
