LAFing on KUOW Seattle

When Rich Lyons first moved to Seattle, he didn’t talk much about his past. People who know him now have a hard time believing that for over 20 years, Rich was a preacher at a conservative Pentecostal church in East Texas. But after Rich started to object to what he saw as hatred and intolerance, he began preaching acceptance, and the church officials pushed back. He lost his job and his marriage, spiraling into a suicidal depression. Rich explains how he came out of his depression, became an outspoken atheist and found a new community in Seattle. Rich Lyons talks with KUOW’s Jeremy Richards.

No Longer Witnessing for Jehovah – Episode 11

Play

In this episode we talk with Chad, a life-long Jehovah’s Witness who left the church and became an atheist.

I’ve spent more time editing this episode that I imagined, because I had to balance my friendshp with Chad and my desire to protect him from saying too much, and my respect for my listeners, which requires me to tell his story.

I hope you are as moved by his story as I am.

Now, let’s LAF with Chad!
