TheOoze.com is an online collective of believers who feel disconnected from the mainstream church. With a readership from over 100 countries the site offers articles on faith, culture, art, ministry and a public discussion forum to speak openly and honestly on these issues. Out of the Ooze is a journey through the raw, impassioned stories of these disenchanted churchgoers and highlights the hopes and struggles of a new generation. Compiled and edited by the site's founder Spencer Burke.
This book brings you face-to-face with pastors and elders, committed attendees, back-pew sitters, and people who have walked out of the church looking for something more. Their unlikely love letters give you an opportunity to hear firsthand from the whole body of Christ.
Out of the Ooze marks the beginning of an annual series publishing the best of each year?s articles exploring the themes of faith, social justice, art, and ministry.
