“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” -Matthew 11:28-30

Where do you go when the church has been your whole life? How do you continue to engage with God after his "children" have treated you so poorly? Today's episode covers a variety of experiences, ways the church is failing humanity, and how we can begin to make things right.
