Email from Catherine Rohr

Recently I wrote a post about offering grace to Catherine Rohr and inviting you guys to do the same. It created a great dialogue as you guys jumped on board with the idea. Yesterday, I received an email from Catherine in response to that post and I thought I’d share it with you guys as well as a follow up. This is turning out to be an incredible story and I’m proud to be a part of this type of Church.

Dear Jeremy,

I’m starting to dig out of all of this. I have been scared to look at the internet because of all the things that have been said about me, but I happened to click on your blog and was moved to tears. Thank you for the support and encouragement. It means a lot to me.

I’ve tried to not pay too much attention to the bloggers.

The good news is that the church really is being the church to me. I never expected it. I thought I would be written off by the world. I haven’t. I have felt more loved than ever through this. It has still been the hardest time, but I feel so supported. I am going through a healthy process, and will take time off to rest and continue in my healing. At some point, I hope to start something new. I still have all my passion for this work—and it has been tested.

I have wonderful people around me, coaching me every step of the way.

Thank you for your kind words. Really!
