How come in church we only ever hear the gospels of four men in Palestine 2,000 years ago? What about the gospels of the people sitting right next to us: the woman who gave up her child for adoption, the gay man shunned by his children, the atheist who found he’d become a believer, the gardener who notices God in the roses. Short stories of faith and doubt, of love and longing by people you’ve never heard from a church you’ve never been to which is just like yours.
