012 – Leaving Religion, Finding Ekklesia: A Conversation with Rocky Glenn and Jim Gordon

Welcome to episode 12 of the UnSunday Show! I caught two of my friends at a weak moment and they both agreed to come on the show and talk with me about their individual journeys out of the institutional church. My conversation with Rocky Glenn and Jim Gordon centered around their reasons for leaving that religious environment, their experiences along the way, and what community looks like now, apart from religious influence and obligation.

Jim and Rocky’s stories are indicative of millions who’ve left the institutional church environment in favor of a more authentic experience apart from it, me included. We haven’t left the faith or the body of Christ. One cannot leave the body of Christ without walking away from Jesus. The two are mutually inclusive. Like so many others, we’ve simply discovered a more genuine expression of the body of Christ apart from religious obligation and conformity to institutional rules, expectations, and traditions.

Grab your favorite beverage, pull up your favorite chair and join our conversation.

  1. I have been so sick and tired of the institutional church thing that, I stopped almost 3yrs ago, am an ordained Minister of God, and I felt there is more to what we were taught to know.. Just yesterday I bumped into Jim Gordon’s post and all my convictions were confirmed. Am so liberated and will want to continue to learn and unlearn so I can teach others..

    Am part of you from now on…


    1. Welcome Benjamin. Thanks for taking the time to write. It seems like I’m unlearning things every day. We don’t realize how entangled in religion we are until we walk away from it. Then the scales fall off and the deprogramming begins. Thanks for reaching out. Enjoy your new found freedom!
