Permission to Speak Freely by Anne Jackson
Book Descprition: "In May 2008, Anne Jackson asked a question on her blog, "What is one thing you feel you can't say in church?" Hundreds responded. Everyone had a story.
Beautiful. Artistic. Freeing. I must admit I was intrigued when I saw this book and I was not disappointed by it's content. At a time when I am desperately trying to be vulnerable about abuse I suffered in church, this book was an advocate for my spirit. We are not meant to keep things hidden in the dark. We are meant to place them on the alter in the light that they may be healed. Church, as beautiful as she was meant to be, needs a reformation. The problem is that we are trying to make it appear as though she has had one instead of actually healing the broken. This is one of my favorite reads of the year. May you be encouraged to bring your transparency into the house of God so that others might be healed. Please read this book.
