I had really hoped to go to wild goose tomorrow but once the festival started they quit selling tickets on eventbrite.
Do you know if they’re available to buy at the festival?
Or do you know anyone who isn’t going that I could buy a ticket from?
I didn’t know if I could make it until nearly the last minute and was so hoping to go!
@Birdie at the risk of sounding like George Bush after 9/11, the thing I really need people to do is buy t-shirts. we gotta keep our shop running through this terrible disruption. if you or anyone you know needs 24+ t-shirts, please consider using Camden Printworks (camdenprintworks.net, email@example.com)
Full disclosure, I have the flu so I’m tired and grumpy.
Do you ever want to show up at a Bible study and just unload the unanswerable questions on them? Tease the logic out to it’s absurd conclusions?
Sometimes I do. Usually when I’m tired, or feeling particularly hurt by something a Christian friend has done or said.
I think the hardest evangelical baggage I’ve had to unpack is the impulse to evangelize my ideas to others, and this is just part of that.
Thoughts on the recent Liturgists episode on Buddhism.
This Bushi quote hit me: "See what it feels like to visualize in your own mind being on your own without a reliance on God. You have to be daring to breathe the air as it is, without understanding or without even knowing if God is present. You have to be willing to experience this life without the prerequisite that you suggest to yourself every day that you can't survive without this image of God...You have to walk yourself through that."
As for my faith, I grew up southern baptist. I’ve always been sincere in my faith pursuits, and now I sincerely don’t know anymore and I couldn’t be happier. I have had a lot of deconstruction, and not a lot of reconstruction. I try hard to be an lgbtq ally, I try to address my white privileged and fight the patriarchy at every chance. I’m loyal and I’m here if someone needs to talk. Thankful for this space.

Also: attention all liturgists, you can in fact make some of your posts follower-only without making your whole profile private. There should be a globe symbol near the camera and CW symbol that you can click. It will give you several options including public, follower-only, unlisted, and direct message
I don’t think I completely grasp the concept of “triggering” or “being triggered”. I get that certain topics or memories can “trigger” people and I respect that and believe them, but I don’t understand what that means or looks like internally. I never describe a reaction I have as being triggered, but maybe I am? Can anyone offer any insight?
