The Fallen Pastor

Several months ago, I was caught.

I had a marriage of over ten years with two children, a church in which I served nine years.

However, I found myself looking outside my marriage for satisfaction for several reasons. I found myself dissatisfied with my church and ministry.

I offer to you no excuses for what I did. I bear the full blame. I offer to you my story.

I have been excommunicated and alienated from my church and no one there dares speak to me. It has been months since the events have occurred.

I am a seminary trained pastor who knows this - it is not right to judge others. This ordeal has been difficult and has taught me much. I have learned a lot about what I thought to be true about my denomination, my faith, and others.

Please bear with me as I tell my story.
