This was my post about life as a person who identifies as a Christian but chooses not to attend church. I found so few others like me, at the time of writing it, even though several resources and surveys reported that we were a growing number. I wanted to tell anyone who would listen about who I really am, and what I really believe, in hopes that it might inspire others who feel as I do, and educate some who are not familiar with my lifestyle. It felt like a dream come true watching a seemingly silent community come forth and vocalize that they too are unchurched Christians and they too want to be recognized for who they really are, and not for their lack of church membership. The reaction was better than I could have ever hoped for. Thank you for your consideration.
