Sarah Sentilles broke up with the Creator of the Universe just as she was about to be ordained as a priest in the Episcopal Church. She tells all in her book, Breaking Up With God: A Love Story.
In this interesting and thought-provoking interview on Religion For Life, Dr. Sentilles shares her theological journey and demonstrates why if the church is going to have any relevancy to educated and inquiring minds, it is going to need to challenge its patriarchy and its outdated images of God.
I wrote about her book on my blog here and here and posted an excerpt from her book here.

500 mountains in Appalachia have had their tops destroyed in order to get to the coal seams. Many within faith communities see this destruction as an assault on God’s creation. Coal companies have their sites set on Tennessee’s mountains.
Jennie Young of Elizabethton, Tennessee talks to me about efforts to alert people, particularly in faith communities, about mountain top removal strip mining, and to encourage them to tell our political representatives to take action.
Jennie Young was featured in the Elizabethon Star, Struggle to Protect State’s Mountains is a Moral Issue at Heart for Activist
