It goes like this, “Hi person, would you like to be on The Liturgists Podcast?”

Person, after a long delay: “Yes!”

Us: “OK, when are you available?”

Person: “…”

That’s pretty much where it falls apart.

BWAHAHAHA! In other news . . NEVER use the phrase "New Direction" because, you know, say it 5x fast . . . .

Gendered hairstyles and nervousness 

I'm planning to get a haircut tomorrow and I am *nervous*. I never understood why people would just chop their own hair off because they needed a change, but now I think I do.

I did look at the reviews and cross a few hair salons off of my list, but idk I hope I end up at a good one.

I'm worried they'll assume I want a really feminine cut or something, but hopefully they'll listen to me.p

rhe 

I've been thinking about joining over here for a little bit now.... But honestly everything that happened with RHE really cemented that I need to do something.

Something.

Even if it's just starting to reach out.

We were never made to follow God alone, community has always been a part of it. RHE showed a lot of us that we weren't alone in our interpretations, no matter what our communities might say. And I feel it's only right to expand that community now to honor her.

So, I joined here.

@joeld probably the same guy who figured out cheese. like ya - this milk looks okay.... its, just... solid now....

@mike thank you so much for sharing on the latest liturgist podcast. I know you’ve shared bits of it before on Patreon but it hit me harder this time and I cried on the floor for a bit.

There’s healing in relationships but it’s fucking painful and scary.

Religion, evangelism 

Oh and of course if I was the only leader present I would not use this curriculum at all, but unfortunately two other people will be leading with me, so they probably won't be okay with that

A Note to Fediverse Admins 

Hello!

We've got a new, growing instance here at social.theliturgists.com. I'm new to Mastodon, and most people on this instance are even newer than I am.

We're learning, but very inexperienced--a bit like a couple thousand puppies running into your federated timelines.

We're a community built around a podcast, and have tons of insider language on top of that.

All that to say, if our chatter is cluttering your feeds, we're sorry!

@vishnu @mike I’d really like a “fuck you, I’m a goat” T-shirt at some point pls

My therapist told me this week I have PTSD. I’ve spent 3 days googling it 🤣

Find someone who appreciates you as much as @mike appreciates the rock this valentine’s day ❤️

medical trauma 

With my anxiety people keep reminding me to breathe, and so I was like, okay, I'll try a breathing audio exercise. So I did and wound up low level triggered with memories of being instructed how to breathe during MRIs and the way I have to do breathing tests before and after stress tests and just, dammit, my trauma has turned so many coping mechanisms into triggers and I hate it so fucking much.

CW requests for new users across the fediverse 

Hello, new people! Please try to use Content Warnings for things that could be triggering to others.

Things like religion, alcohol/drugs, suicide, abuse, etc. Stuff that could ruin someone's day by being forced to interact with it.

Every instance has different rules and etiquette, but your public posts are seen by everyone on the federated timeline so please take that into account.

Thank you! :greatcat:

Content warnings 

are one of my favorite features on Mastodon! Not only are they helpful for other people, especially people on other instances, but clicking on a toot with a cw to reveal it makes me feel like I'm opening a wrapped present.

Important point being brought up by users on other instances: For people on the Liturgists instance 

Remember that if you are not private other instances can see all of your posts. Musings about cws or related issues may be tiring to people who have been here a long time and are not still figuring this out. Maybe use cws and specify questions as only for our instance to help with this issue. Don't assume everyone who sees your post is coming from the same place.

Important point being brought up by users on other instances: For people on the Liturgists instance 

Your questions may be in good faith, but they can be tiring to others. Especially if you're discussing the need for cws or trying to understand how people are marginalized cws are your friend. Please try to be aware of any privileges you may have that may be blinding you to other people's experiences. I am trying to improve on all of these things myself. Let's not be a bother to other instances!
