Musings of a Maverick Minister by Marge deGraw

There are a lot of ‘lost’ Christians out there, and I want them to know that it is ok to question their faith. It is ok to not believe what we learned as children in Sunday school. It is ok to go beyond the bounds of Christian belief.

Religion has always been a divisive topic, fueled by peopling holding steadfast to their beliefs. Any variance of interpretation or questioning of church doctrine often incites uproar. Yet retired minister Marge deGraw is actively encouraging Christians to question their religious beliefs through her new book “Musings of a Maverick Minister.”

This innovative collection of essays calls for practicing Christianity with an openhearted set of beliefs and knowledge. deGraw draws from both her time as an ordained minister and her work with a spiritual mentor to offer Christians a unique view into their faith.

“There are a lot of ‘lost’ Christians out there, and I want them to know that it is ok to question their faith. It is ok to not believe what we learned as children in Sunday school. It is ok to go beyond the bounds of Christian belief,” deGraw said.

A self-proclaimed “radical” Christian, deGraw has studied Buddhism, metaphysics and spirituality. She combines her diversified knowledge to emphasize the importance of compassion, forgiveness and positive attitudes.

“We need to understand the simple idea that Jesus came to teach us and transform us from the inside out. He came with a radical message of love that is just as radical and important today as in His time,” deGraw said.

No matter a reader’s religious views, “Musings of a Maverick Minister” will serve as a guide for self-reflection and spiritual growth.
