In college getting a degree in elementary ed. Grew up baptist, now I'm leaning towards contemplative mysticism but I'm still going to a Baptist Church and the most baptist University ever. Met my boyfriend because Baudrillard in policy debate. Love: double exceptionalities, anti-neoliberal movements(esp in education), vacuum's, pumpkin spice, precarity, and royal icing cookies. Dream squad= Hillary McBride, Bob Goff, Giroux, and my middle school cheer coach. 2 on the enneagram
So proud of you @mike you are so incredibly loved
Just want to say thank you @mike for being an example and prioritizing health over work 🖤 hoping for rest and healing for you 🙏
Wrote what feels like the 100th biblical worldview paper for my college career and it's interesting how much it's changed... Biggest changes since freshman year when I was very much struggling with fundamentalism: gradually stopped using male pronouns in reference to God, started using the word divine to describe THIS, focused in on Genesis 1 vs Genesis 3, no more mentions of innerancy. I may still be frustrated by assignments like this but it's really beautiful to see the growth.
Today in my philosophy of Christian education class We started talking about postmodernism. And everyone gives the flippant little Oh they say there's no absolutes, but that very statement is an absolute lololol with the little giggles that are like we're right don't you know. I kind of thought I was going to scream. I just had to like open mastedon and be like "Oh yes there are anti-capitalist feminists in this world that I can truly jive with." These are not the only educators that exist
there is a peace
in the presence
in the stillness
in the silence
in the quiet
in the calm
in the prayer of a loving heart
@clarissa I read your poetry from Easter that got re-tooted forever ago and I just realized you are also actually on mastedon as well, I just wanted to let you know that it has touched me so deeply and I read it all the time, at least three times a week- I made a laptop sticker based on it and I was thinking about getting part of it tattooed. I just found you on here and wanted to say thank you for sharing that part of your heart.
Elementary Ed major reading all the anti-neoliberal lit I can find, trying to love Jesus and people, and dwelling with a little more vunerability every day.
