Sadly, many of us know how that bird feels -- trapped, while those around us confine us, and insist that we believe we're free... all the while running into the "stained glass masquerade".

I had to leave the institution of church, and realize that Church is who I AM, not a place to go. In the New Testament, the word for church is ekklesia, which in Greek means "called out ones". Those who follow Jesus, Who came to establish a relationship with God, not a religion to observe.

I really like having God outside of the box..!

Shalom, Dena
