I ‘found’ Leah Remini’s IG account. I say ‘found’ because it was not lost… I just never before thought to look it up. I love her outspoken response to Scientology.

As I was watching her reels, and listening to her talk about Scientology, I started thinking about my days as an Evangelical. There are many similarities; the control, the money, the condemnation, and more. I pray more Evangelicals will come forward with their stories and expose this farce of ‘Christianity’.

There is going to be an editor from an online religious magazine at our parish tonight who wishes to speak to people, especially former Evangelicals, about their path to Orthodoxy. It is also a guild meeting day. That’s just too much time to spend away from home in one day plus there is the issue of night driving. I am tempted, however, to try to lure her away to talk for a bit during the guild meeting (which i am trying to arrive at early) with promises of coffee and pastries.

I thought I would just go to the icon guild/class and do my best and just deal with it that I am far behind everyone else and remember one of my favorite sayings, “It’s not a competition!”.
