Spirited Exchanged UK is now up and running.
Spirited Exchanges has been running in New Zealand for some time and has increasingly become the umbrella name for a variety of initiatives growing from a recognition that many people are grappling with issues related to faith and church, many who have left the institutional church. It acknowledges:
§ some have been abused in a controlling church culture
§ some want freedom to explore the questions without being told the answers
§ some have had life experiences that cause them to doubt God
§ some are hurting, some are angry, some are bored
§ some are
deeply hungry for more spiritual
§ doesn’t try to convert people
§ doesn’t try to lure people back into a church fellowship
§ doesn’t try to ‘fix’ the problems.
§ Lets God defend God.
