If you read Rachel Held Evans‘ blog, you know that she started her faith life in the Evangelical tradition. Though still respectful of and connected to her spiritual origins, Rachel’s spiritual practices and theological reflections have led her to think differently about God, faith, and social issues. As many blogs make clear, she is not alone.

So, I take seriously what she has to day about how traditions like our own can provide a welcome, nurturing place for people doing some spiritual stretching. Case in point: check out her excellent post “5 Ways Progressive Mainline Churches Can Welcome Disenfranchised Evangelicals.”
