Mr Spock in church

Autism, faith and church is a difficult subject, which is why I appreciate personal accounts like this one by Brant Hansen.  It’s real, and it’s both humorous and sad.  He often felt like an alien at church, eventually wondering if God had rejected him because he had never had an emotional experience of God’s presence.  While he still felt alienated from many parts of Christian culture, he finally found that Jesus was the only one who made sense- and explained why.
