My name is Dana Cashwell and I along with my husband Travis, my three kids, Cameron 6 (she's a girl), Madeline 4 and Thomas 3 we left the church 2 years ago to BE the Church. The problem was we didn't know how to do it. Travis and I grew up in church so when we explained to our family, friends and church what God wanted us to do, the majority of them considered us apostates and heretics. Don't get me wrong, they loved us in their way, they just didn't support us.
A year ago, along with some of the friends we had left, started something called So What! Ministries (shameless plug: www.sowhatministries.com). Which was all about getting people off their butt and serving their community/church/family. Then we read Pagan Christianity. Mainly because George Barna was listed as an author. After reading it, we devoured everything that Frank Viola has written because he put on paper what we were going through and what to do about it. We're in the process now of revamping and updating everything.
I felt like I was wandering in the wilderness for 2 years searching for the promised land; thank God I finally found it! Delete Comment
Hey Christina, I am originally from your "neck of the woods". I grew up in Mexia. I am guessing it is about 2 hours from Kerens. I know that when I was a teen (30 years ago) when we went to summer Youth Camp, all the best looking guys were always from Kerens. Crazy the things you remember.
Anyway, the Simple Church dot com group seems to be pretty wide spread and you are the only one I have seen from a town in Texas that is close to my old stomping grounds. Blessings, Leah
