#introductions *stands up* Hey my name is Caleb. I'm on the tail end of a deconstruction (thanks in part to the Liturgists) and now in a forever reconstruction. Former PK. Introvert who loves people. I make music and I'm finishing up an album about my faith migration. Oh and for all you nerds, I'm a 9w1. Toot.
New song that questions God
Hey y’all. I released the first single from my upcoming album, Where Color Survives. The album is a two-parter and shares the experience of my spiritual undoing/reconstruction. The single is called “Just Being Honest” and questions God and my childhood faith.
If that sounds interesting, you can listen here: https://song.link/us/i/1470330452
Graphic design for my upcoming album about my de/reconstruction
Hey, y’all. I’m about 97.3% done recording an album I wrote last year during a major “faith migration.” I’m looking for someone who both resonates with the album theme and can create a meaningful and eye-catching album cover.
My budget? Very very low. This is mainly for someone who loves creating visual art and who can relate to having had a spiritual crisis/migration/deconstruction. This should be fun!
Toot at me! ✌🏻🙏🏻🍻💩
Video post about suicidality.
I recently gave a talk about my experiences with suicidality and what research tells us about the cognitive and emotional factors behind suicide.
I'm posting it because I think there are better ways to talk about suicide, and more we can do to help people struggling with a desire to end their own lives.

For those of you still interested in the Bible, this is a fascinating perspective on it...

Rob Bell and Deconstruction
I just finished What is The Bible? and HOLY SHIT.
Specifically HOLY SHIT to the last 3 pages of the book, titled "A Note on Growing and Changing."
He packs so much wisdom into those 3 pages I about fell out of my chair.
If you're deconstructing, reconstructing, or somewhere in between I would highly recommend this book if not for that note alone.
I found this super interesting. Thought some of y’all would too.

"If you’re logged out or don’t have a Facebook account and visit a website with the Like button or another social plugin, your browser sends us a...limited set of info."
Is anyone else sick of talking about it?
Don't get me wrong, it’s been super helpful for me. And I would encourage anyone who hasn't to look into it.
But it's meant to be a private thing, something for personal growth. It's sort of becoming this comparative, magic-hat-sorting type of conversation. Anyone with me on this? No? Just me? Ok.
(And yes I realize the irony of me talking about how I'm tired if talking about it...)
