Pedro leaves the Lion

"There's a hemorrhaging of thoughtful people from the church."

Indie rocker David Bazan (of Pedro the Lion) talks about his loss of faith in a Christianity Today article.

His above comment is possibly correct, but misleading, as it supposes that all these people are leaving Christianity, when it seems more and more thinking folks are leaving "a" church, and finding the CHURCH. For me, it seems that one of the chief similarities between myself and my fellow Tiber River swim club members is that we "thought" our way into Christ's church . . .the other similarity is that most of us wanted to stay on the shore, but heeded His voice which beckoned us "swim".
