You guys! Brad Jersak let me review his new book IN—Incarnation & Inclusion, Abba & Lamb! Read the review here:
Warning! Christ centered material.

Thought I’d give you all a chance to read a great coming out story by my friend Nate Postlethwait. Find it here:

@Tori I can only do that if what I create is not perfect. So that’s most things. 😳 Also listening to anything Michael Gungor says helps. @vishu ❤️

I am featuring the writing of Ali J. P. Miller @equustel on today. Thank you Ali. ❤️ You guys, she’s good!

@equustel I just read your blog post “learning how to embrace being wrong” So good!

@mamaria After receiving negative feedback that causes heart grieve, your simple encouragement is like a lifeline for my soul. Thank you! ❤️

@equustel @Meg Thank you both! My blog is
The Story of My Life.
I’d love to hear your stories! Really, I mean for real...tell me your story. ❤️

@Daryn I found this, exactly, just last night in my home town. I hope you find it too. ❤️

I’ve been blogging about my deconstruction since Sept. Experienced the first scathing remarks from friends on Facebook last Sunday...and was able to respond kindly. ❤️🤐

My insides...the soul of me
Knows what my voice cannot speak...words are too trite
Why, then, this compulsion to express?
Must it get out somehow?
There is emotion that tears...only tears, relieve
Will I feel better to let it go?
Or better, I think, to let it grow
To effectuate this
Painful out-growing of my own too small-ness

My confidence is fragile. My sensitivity is strong. This moment is all I’m ever sure of.

+ brief summary of reconstruction and brainstorming request for writing/podcasting topics 

@danielmrose I don’t go to church anymore because of the “triggers” that spiraled down into depression and became more and more difficult to overcome. I admire you for staying and pastoring a church and being one that would not cause further damage to people like me. How do you keep yourself from being triggered by your congregants?
