“I no longer explain who we are by who we are not,” Carla J. Bailey preached on May 15, 2016.
“I believe in God. I know that my evidence for God’s active involvement in human life is unscientific and wildly circumstantial. I know that the gospels say Jesus said some strange, exclusive and mysterious things. I know that believing in the power and efficacy of prayer will not stand up to systematic scrutiny. I know that there are Christians in the world who are praying for my personal and imminent suppression, already convinced of my eternal damnation. Whatever. . . .”
