  1. It’s why my husband won’t step foot in a church. Feels it is hypocrisy at its best. I’ve suffered at the hands of many by the church AND had one pastor try to save me from the hands of so many bad only to have my church parents tell him no. Sooooo….I pray in my yard, or at a tree, or with an owl, and a few days ago I drove past a church and saw a garden. I stopped there and prayed in the garden. The church is a difficult thing for me to wrap my mind around because the people in it are sometimes brainwashed and I’m a CHAPLAIN!!!!!
