On days where all I see on Facebook are notifications for an extremely toxic group that I am in, it is nice to come back here and have kind and honest people having good discussions.

Hey all remember way back when @vishnu @mike did an episode of the pod with Charity:Water? Well my birthday is coming up. I’m turning 21 and drink alcohal is great and all, but I think people need water more. Help me turn water into wine and in my birthday I’ll drink to you🖤

Racism and history discussions with conservative family members. 

One of the main reasons that I love this platform! Wish it could become more mainstream use.

Is Anyone else watching the Chernobyl miniseries? It’s SO good. I love how they show the fucked-up-Edness of the Soviet Union but also the dignity and pride of the people.

Three black transwomen were murdered this weekend. The life expectancy for a black transwoman in the USA is 31. I urge you to seek out ways to stand up for black transwomen in ways that are bigger and better and costlier and more human than posts like this on social media. :trans_heart:

Thinking of the grief that is coming up for many of us because of Rachel's death. May we all grieve well- grief has no stages or trajectory. And then when we are ready take up the work that she started. Love you all.

"Imagine if every church became a place where everyone is safe, but no one is comfortable. Imagine if every church became a place where we told one another the truth. We might just create sanctuary." --

This is a fascinating article about the Exodus (or lack thereof) from an archaeological perspective. Here's the lede:

"The Passover narrative is one of the greatest stories ever told. More than any other biblical account, the escape of the enslaved Hebrews from Egypt is the foundational story of the Jewish faith and identity, one that all Jews are commanded to pass on from generation to generation.

Also, it never happened."

Today is Palm Sunday, the pastor (who I LOVE) started his sermon geeking out about the Star Wars episode IX trailer. It was awesome. Then he said, "If only we were as excited about holy week as we are about Star Wars." He's hilarious.

US Politics - asylum seekers

Thinking tonight about how vitally important religion is for so many people in this world. All of the great traditions have sheltered so many hurting and afraid people for thousands of years. This is worth remembering when we feel the (rightful) need to tear it down or take it apart in pursuit of truth, beauty, and love.
