My lament:   Waiting. No one likes waiting. Maybe least of all me. I’ve waited for my entire life to see your Church reflect your heart to see men and women lead your people. Equally. With skillful hands and integrity of heart .  I’ve waited for your Church to wake up and get it
  Can the church find hope again?   I’m heartbroken, in shock and saddened. Rachel Held Evans, one of the pinnacles of Progressive Christianity, met Jesus face-to-face yesterday.
