Pinned toot

My name is Jeff and I live in NE after growing up on the east coast and spending the last few years on the west coast.

I have started a journey questioning my faith and beliefs that I held since childhood. It is a lonely road sometimes especially since I have not completely given up on the church side of things and still seek community with others that are not likeminded.

I have enjoyed the Liturgist podcast since it’s inception and hope to find community here.

After following this story and finding out there was more to the story (i.e. infidelity)

1. I don't feel this makes his deconstruction any less valid

2. I wonder if he had come clean earlier in his journey if the infidelity would not have happened

I cannot process RHE being gone. I always enjoyed hearing her talk on the podcasts and explain complex issues in a way that made sense and allowed them to be applied to everyday life. I cannot imagine the pain and grief that her family is going through. Her voice will be greatly missed in this universe. 😥

This is an important thread from Twitter and rings all to true. If you have a moment send him some love.

Just purchased this application and thought it would fit here.

It is an application that reminds you randomly 5 times every day that you are going to die and gives you a quote that goes along with it.

Sounds morbid at first, but it really fits in with being aware of "THIS" and not "THAT".

Anyways let me know if you buy it and how you like it.

#HubbleFriday This star-studded image shows us a portion of Messier 11 which is also known as the Wild Duck Cluster, as its brightest stars form a “V” shape that somewhat resembles a flock of ducks in flight: go.nasa.gov/2FvXnRa

The latest Ask Science Mike podcast is really good everyone. You should go have a listen.

The part where @mike talks about connecting on an emotional level instead of trying to out science someone is spot on. They have already made up their mind and will likely only become more ingrained in their thinking the more they are argued with. This is called the Backfire effect ( although it may have a more scientific name)

Just released the Gungor “Archives” on Apple Music. (Other stores will follow soon.) 33 songs. Clean slate baby!

Does anyone else go back and listen to old episodes of the Liturgist podcast? I always hear something new and it helps to listen to episodes about things that I am struggling to make sense of.
