I didn’t believe on the pod when Mike said you can just forget about Mastadon because there are no aspects to keep your attention.

But I really forgot about it!

Does anyone know of any historically and scientifically accurate study bibles? Opened mine for the first time in forever and realized it is total shit :-/

Family relationships are extremely hard. Doing the self-work to not repeat generational cycles is HARD. Trying to remember that this hard work is not only worth it for me, but for generations to come. But right now I just wanna cry 🙄😩

Book recommendation:
All About Love - bell hooks

It’s incredible and I want to read it 30 more times.

I’m having a hellish week. After many mental breakdowns I finally made it to see avengers and there’s a minor fire in the lobby so we’re not allowed in 🙃 just further reinforcement that I should always just stay in my bed.

It’s not the worst because I was thinking of deleting it anyway, but I just know she has probably already screenshotted my tweets and sent in family group messages 😭

My ultra conservative and gossipy aunt in law followed me on twitter, the only place (other than here) that I feel safe to share my views, so... I just deleted it.

This weekend with family who I can find so many faults in, I am trying to stay present and mindful and grateful and loving.

It’s so hard and I’m sending you all who feel the same way so much love.

It’s wild to think about all that I have learned and unlearned, learning and unlearning.

And what my future self will think about what my current self has “all figured out”.

And I’m not even sure that I care much about the literal resurrection of Jesus 🙊

I care much more about his incarnation as a way to illuminate and dismantle the oppressive system of Rome, dying on the cross next to two others (terrorists/freedom fighters) because of the sin of the world.

Instead, I have spent this week contemplating a human Jesus, going to Holy Week Eucharist services alone, & getting my feet washed (literally and figuratively).

The first Easter Sunday, in ten years!, that I am not part of the many month long process, beginning to end, of the much anticipated service.

All of my past Easter Sundays I have been ecstatic about the risen Christ, on my church worship/planning/set up/greeting/tear down team... for probably the past 10 years?

It has been my first spiritually fulfilling and observant and contemplative Holy Week, but it has been hard to spend time with family who is on a completely different wavelength.

I miss these friends so much, but I’m not willing to sacrifice my mental health in order to go to these gatherings.

Can we talk about the relationships lost due to deconstruction, not because of disagreement in theology, but because going to church/church events comprised most of the friendship?

And after, there’s just no time to hang outside of those events.
