Esther Jones: I Just Live Here: OctPoWriMo 8 - Open the Doors

Esther Jones: I Just Live Here: OctPoWriMo 8 - Open the Doors: Open up the doors and beat the drums, Fling wide the gates and tear down every wall, And let the music play for all to hear. No one is refus...

That's one of the major reasons I broke away from the church when I was 18 and later ended up distancing myself from the New Age movement as well. There is a surplus of judgment and a lack of embracing marginalized people.


  1. I never formed a connection with the church. Any church. And am not sorry. For all the talk of comfort and love the opposites seem to be more common.

    1. My son never has either. I was a devout Catholic when I was younger, and I certainly learned that if you're not an upstanding, middle-class, toe-the-line sort, you really are not welcome.
      The people at the little church in the town where I live now are nice enough. We go there for the food bank and have said we will help where needed. We don't attend services, though.


This is a safe space. Be respectful.
