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.

depressing poem about a faltering faith 

To anyone who has read @vishnu new book "This" what were your thoughts? I loved it and it really spoke to me on many different levels. The one thing I was thinking about recently was how tired he seemed while writing the book. It comes through in the writing. There are happy moments as well.

It made me think about my deconstruction and path and how tired it made me as well.

Do you think it is the inner struggle that makes people so tired or the fight against people in their lives?

Just listened to the latest AATR and I was really sad to hear that you are under the weather. Hope you feel better soon. Take it easy and get as much rest as possible. Your voice is needed in this world for a long time to come.

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.
