Growing up with my [number] __________ brothers and [number] __________ sisters in a very [adjective] __________ part of the country, I had a(n) [adjective] __________ time finding my own [adjective] __________ voice. Mom and Dad took us to church [adverb] __________, but you might say we were more [adjective] __________ than [adjective] __________. It wasn’t until high school that I took [verb ending in –ing] __________ to church into my own [plural noun] __________. One [adjective] __________ day, I heard God [verb ending in –ing] __________ my name. “[name] __________,” a voice seemed to [verb] __________ into my ear. This seemed [adjective] __________, as I was [adverb] alone at the time. “[name] __________,” I heard again. I was so [adjective] __________, I answered “[exclamation] __________!” Eventually God and I had a(n) [adjective] __________ [noun] __________ together, and my life has never been the same since. I try to [verb] __________ my story to others as [adverb] __________ as I can. Sometimes people come [verb ending in –ing] __________ to hear it. Now I like to [verb] __________ I’m following in Jesus’ [plural noun] __________ just like I’m called to. Someday, I hope I will [verb] __________ the church in a(n) [adjective] __________ capacity, but for now, I try to live out my faith by [verb ending in -ing] __________ [adverb] __________ with others.

Very refreshing - because, of course, there is no template, and for that I am grateful - I think.

Who should get the credit for this? Definitely filing away to use in multiple contexts!

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
