I am writing my letter to a few pastors who lead our past church to explain why we are leaving. It’s so very difficult. It’s easy to write in an anonymous journal/blog, but is much more difficult when you know the people you are writing to will possibly not understand. These pastors may see us a paranoid, crazy, weird, and downright wrong. They may think we are judgemental. They may only think they miscommunicated rather than that they need to repent and turn back to focus on glorifying God. Since this deception is both subtle and layered, it’s very complicated to explain in a letter. It may be the last communication we have with these pastors, and we love them dearly. It’s important we say what we mean, we say what is true, and we say exactly what God wants us to say. No pressure.
