When Enuma Okoro
wrestle with my experiences on the receiving end of the church's deafening silence—and at times outright rejection or animosity—toward a sense of professional ambition and calling beyond the realm of ministry or church service.
In celebration of our launch, many of the Talking Taboo contributors are blogging about why they are talking taboo:
I'm talking taboo because I lost my virginity on a Wednesday night in Shepardstown, West Virginia (RIP Chris Kelly).
I'm talking taboo because all I hear are crickets, my heart is beating fast and I'm sweating profusely.
I'm talking taboo because I keep running into glass doors.
I'm talking taboo because that's how my village raised me.
I'm talking taboo because I've learned that "courage isn’t waiting for the absence of fear, but doing things afraid."
I'm talking taboo, because I...have a voice.
