Pinned toot

Grew up in a loving fundie home. Never really experienced God, so my "faith" was entirely based on apologetics/logic/facts, which I deconstructed last May very rapidly once I started analyzing the evidence (or lack thereof) for most of my beliefs; went from proselytizing Christian to atheist in the span of a few weeks.

I'm happier than ever, deconstructing with my amazing supportive husband and hoping my evangelical family someday can accept it.

Hey @mike and @vishnu :)

I'm super excited to see you both at Tabs & Wafers in Chicago this Saturday! I wanted to let you both know (if you're not already aware) that the general admission tickets AND the Q&A tickets say doors open at 7 and event starts at 8. I know elsewhere it says Q&A doors at 6, but maybe it's worth sending a correction e-mail to ticket purchasers?

I'm thinking lots of the Q&A people could just look at the ticket time and miss the Q&A. :s

When you were raised in a conservative bubble and had NO IDEA what the "Tabs and Wafers" name means, and then you listen to TAATR and find out tabs is apparently a drug reference. 😂

Now I'm even more excited about the tickets I bought haha 😂 Looking forward to it, @mike and @vishnu !! 😁

Just a reminder to all the Michigan Liturgists that we do a meetup the 4th Saturday of each month! Sometimes we even do additional meetups, like the one we'll be doing in Lansing on Monday. Please mark your calendars and send me a DM if you're planning on joining & I'll share the specifics! :D

pride month, racism & transphobia among some LGB folks 

Internet: "For this type of plant, be sure to water it very regularly! But don't overwater. It should get x number of inches each week. But if it's in a container, water it more often. But be careful to not overwater!"

Me: "I'm just going to hold down the sprayer button for however long I feel like today and hope for the best."

Hey @mike and @vishnu !

I was noticing that for Tabs & Wafers in Chicago on July 27, both the general admission tickets and the Q&A tickets are showing the same start time (event at 8pm, doors open at 7pm). Not sure if I'm missing something?

We have a group of us coming from Michigan, some with Q&A tickets and some not, so we would love to figure out official start times to plan out our trip. :) Thanks!!

If any Michiganders are interested in joining a group of Liturgists to the July 27 Tabs & Wafers in Chicago, let me know ASAP because we're working on figuring out carpooling and booking an AirBnb together!

Another amazing day spent with the Michigan Liturgists, MY PEOPLE. You all bring such joy to my life and are such spectacular souls. Thank you for a beautifully enriching and rejuvenating day!

Just bought my ticket for the Chicago Tabs & Wafers and I'm SO excited!

I think God is big enough to handle anyone’s heresies, even if any side thinks they’re right.

@Bradw011 @EmilyZaiding Just realized I accidentally deleted a space in the above post and therefore you two didn't get properly tagged at first. Sorry!!

Meeting up with fellow Liturgists fans brings me life. I always feel so rejuvenated after hanging out with Liturgists; even when most of us haven't met before, there's an instant feeling of connection and the space created has room for both vulnerability and also a lot of laughter. It's days like these that I live for. <3

"When life gives you lemonade, there's no need to fuck around with lemons." this quote is my favorite so far.

Michigan Liturgists! We meet up the 4th Saturday of every month, so mark your calendars. :)

I've had a rough month and thought I shared this way sooner, so please forgive me! Our next meetup is tomorrow, April 27 in Belmont at 2:30pm. Please message me for address! :)

So happy we can do this every 4th Saturday! :D

It is extremely liberating to not pretend that you know things you don't. It also opens you up to a lot more chances to learn shit. It rules
