“creatively disaffiliate”

What does it mean to “creatively disaffiliate” oneself from the Church?  This would first require us to define, contextualize and appropriate the nature of “creative” & of “disaffiliation” as it pertains to the Church, pneumatology and the overall nature of the Christian life.  Later we would need to explore if what we mean by “church” is denominational, thereby substantially limiting our scope.  Additionally, we would need to unpack essential interpretations of the Church as being a God-ordained, visible, historical, mystical & transcending reality.  Finally, matters such as ecclesiology and the coinciding issues concerning a Christian’s sense of identity, purpose and place in the Church begs to be addressed in full.
