From Mitch Mayne: Jordan's Story

From time to time there is another blog post or published piece somewhere in the Blogosphere that touches us enough we feel compelled to promote it from The Peacewriter. This post from Mitch Mayne is not only touching, it is an extremely important read.

If you want to know what militant priesthood leadership does to the individual caught in the cross-hairs, this account will leave you stunned. If you want to know the cost of bigotry to the souls of the members of the Church, read on. This post makes me sad and angry.

But Mitch's words make me feel hope.

I really hope Jordan can find God again. That he can build a personal relationship with him in order to heal from the damage done by these painful experiences. Poor guy.

who we are

Welcome to The Peacewriter.

We all want to belong somewhere, to someone. It is a basic human need.

If you have ever experienced a period of doubt or questioned your beliefs in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, you know that this is not a minor thing. It is tantamount to a crisis, and one that can be life altering.

Lose your testimony, and you stand to lose everything that matters.

There are those who exist on the fringes of the Church, who feel disenfranchised, even unwanted. If you are single, gay or lesbian, feminist, atheist, or uncorrelated, it can be tough to feel like a part of the community. You may feel that you do not belong.

You belong here.

If you have ever loved someone who endured a faith crisis, you know that there are a lot of gray areas. Uncertainty is the dominant force; black and white become moot points.

Those who have walked the same path share a common bond, understood by few who have not traveled the same road.

This is the place to share common experiences, to find a voice, to be heard. This is the place to seek after peace, and to find it in the common ties we share.

This is The Peacewriter.
