The Curse of Faith


This is a health warning: belief in God can make you lose your job, your heart, your marbles, and your life. Come to hear (and share) home truths about the secret world of the believer, the things nobody ever admits to in public. Like, for example, the way so many teenage missionaries spend middle age wrestling with longing for an adolescence they missed. Bring your honesty, and an open mind. Together we can work out a way to survive.
