*Very* interesting information! Thanks!

Yes, I was speaking metaphorically... I'll let the OP speak for herself.

I was speaking of the "stained glass masquerade", to mean the unspoken message that we who are religious must hide our true selves (as if God can't handle whom He created...!), must wear masks, pretend to be "fine" no matter what's hurting, and must wear our "Sunday best" along with our "Sunday smiles"... rather than to be real and honest before a God who already knows our hearts, and wants us to reach out to one another in transparency...

Which is one of the reasons why I'm no longer part of the institutional church, and am fellowshipping with those who want a relationship with God, and with one another, but without the religion.

Shalom, Dena
