Over the last few years there has been a wave of Christians leaving the church. Please reread what I just said. There are Christians leaving the church. These are not those who are wiping their hands of God. They didn't turn into atheists. But they are tired of church and what it is and what it has become.
I ran across an article on the CNN Religion blog by one such person. She describes her experience and reasons for leaving the church and then returning. Two things struck me about what she said she learned through her experience.
First, her doubt belonged in the church.
Second, her doubt is part of her faith.
That is not the kind of message you normally hear, but it resonates with me and I suspect others. Read her article here. I think you will find an interesting perspective.
