Contemplative Life

“Doubt, Deconstruction & Redemption”

Coracle has always sought to offer care, companionship, and resources to those wrestling with their faith.  Because of this long commitment, we felt led to enter the unfolding conversation around “deconstruction” by offering programs, conversations, and resources specially crafted for those on the deconstruction journey or those caring for someone on that journey.  Below, you will find a growing collection of resources we have produced on this topic.  We hope they are a blessing to you!
