Remembering Rachel Held Evans

I enjoyed this; hopefully, you will, too. Does anyone else have pleasant memories of how Rachel Held Evans helped them keep and perhaps even refine their faith?

Though I don’t know very much about her but ultimately the only thought that I have that matters is that it’s sad that she passed away so young from s medical mishap. Something similar almost took my life as a kid, a very bad allergic reaction to medication trying to help me over a very bad allergic reaction. I was too young to remember much of it.

It’s sad that she died so young and I can’t imagine the pain and shock her husband, kids and father has. I’m glad the husband went ahead and completed the house they envisioned and I hope that God gives them peace and that somehow through her work he will find ways to bring more people to Christ. I can’t imagine the surreality of that loss.


Very well put. One of her points that I thought was helpful was that millennials don’t care about fancy, cool churches–where you can have coffee and a free iPad.
