Ashley W shares the (sometimes messy) style of Freedom Friends. As a member of Freedom Friends, I feel honored when it is mentioned by someone from outside the church, but I know that the reality is a lot messier than our image sometimes is.

Many of our members and attenders are living with mental and physical disabilities. Quite a few are unemployed and no one makes much money. We consider it a good month when we can make rent. Sometimes we can't afford to pay the pastor the tiny amount we give her to release her for ministry.
