The Misfits Theology Club began its
To foster a community in which people can question, dialogue and disagree freely while still feeling like they belong. To promote charity towards diversity, and disagreement. Although our existence came about to support people in the Christian faith or those coming from such a background, persons from other faiths and secular backgrounds are also more than welcome.
Here at the Misfits Theology Club, we believe that questioning ones faith is not destructive to the life of a follower of Jesus but instead we see the Holy Spirit as the one who invites us into the journey of doubt and questioning that we may lean not on our own understanding but instead learn to trust God.
While we have certainly not left these goals, our emphasis has changed from being a place exclusively for questioning and doubts too being an organization that is dedicated to seeking unity within the Church. These are not mutually exclusive of course, and I personally believe that a united Church is a safe church for asking questions and having doubts. But this is included in our larger goal of working towards the unity that Jesus desires for His Church. As such we work towards having a diverse group of writers from various traditions within the church, Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Protestant. We want to create a place where Christians from diverse opinions and theologies can engage in dialogue and friendship all for the purpose of being One as God is One.
