Thank you for the generosity and courage of this piece.
All religion is a story. An essential question for each of us to ask is whether our stories build garden walls to celebrate our encounter with the divine, or whether they build prison walls to control that experience.
Engaging with this question is the central theme of my first novel, The Secret Love Letters of Saint Paul. If you have a chance to check out the book (available on Amazon in print and e-formats), I hope you enjoy the read.
