Reformer: a person who makes changes to something in order to improve it.
I suppose it’s time I called it like it is. Rather than wearing the title as a badge of shame, perhaps I can live up to its true definition. Negative connotation placed at the altar.

Truth is, I kind of wish I was all of it. Catholic and Orthodox and Protestant. Christian.
