Though you may have never heard the term “Crunchy Christian” you very well may be one. No, it’s not some new denomination or theological view. Crunchy Christians just take a natural and holistic approach to health, wellness, and lifestyle. The Christian brand of your woo woos and your granola girls, we might do things a little bit differently, but we are certainly happy being our crunchy selves 🙂
So how do you know if you might be a crunchy Christian?
1.) You have a Himalayan salt rock lamp on the same side table as your Bible
2.) Alternative medicine doesn’t get you reaching for the holy water
3.) You’re really in touch with your spirit guide, aka the Holy Spirit
4.) You’re not so secretly in love with Dr. Caroline Leaf and all of her books
5.) You’d generally agree that organic and non-gmo is next to godliness
7.) You don’t think it’s weird at all to tap on yourself while you pray
8.) You’re not convinced yoga is of the devil, but the cramp you got after downward dog might be
9.) You bring home brewed kombucha to the women’s ministry brunch
10.) You’ve laughed and nodded all the way through this list
If one or more of these describe you, you’re in good company! There are many different kinds of crunchies and we each have our things we care about.
The wonderful thing about being a crunchy Christian is that while different topics might divide us, we have unity in our love of Jesus and can still support and learn from one another.
