Deconstruction and Ex-vangelical have been buzzwords and hashtags for a while now. With reason. Believe me I understand. I, too, walked away. I think it was necessary. However, I would venture to say that we are on the verge of seeing a new trend begin. Perhaps it will be called #reconstruct or #rechristian or maybe #reconstructmychristianity. Many from both sides won’t like this but I think it is coming.
So what is it that keeps me coming back to believing God exists? What is it that keeps me holding on to Christianity and to the Jesus story in particular? Maybe I’m just crazy or maybe I’m just in tune with reality.
