"Some things can be unlearned, and rightly so, provided that when one thing is unlearned, another is learned. No vacuum in the human heart. Some demolitions occur, and a good thing too, but on condition that reconstruction occurs." Victor Hugo, Les Miserables .

I keep remembering the Liturgists "Christian" episode when Rachel Held Evans sang "I AM A C! I AM A C-H! I AM A C-H-R-I-S-T-I-A-N!" with so much joy and sincerity. It was funny, but it also felt like it came straight from her heart because she meant it.

Thank you to all who recommended to me. Really great read - I'm learning tons. :autism: 👍

Help please. What are your favourite resources on , , and similar? With a faith slant or without.

I have the Ableism episode. Blogs, other podcasts, books, apps. Knock yourself out.

Is it wrong that I just sniggered when flicking through my Bible?

This is my church. It's open all week. Cafe, welcome and quiet. Today I came here and wrote and ate ShakeShack and gave thanks for this amazing space.

From church this morning...

Pastor: Who is to blame for the crashed airplanes?
My husband and I in unison under our breath: "capitalism."
Pastor: Who is to blame for the mass shootings?
My husband and I under our breath: "capitalism."

My body hurts. A LOT. So being a bit kinder to it with @hillarymcbride's 'Embodied Love' meditation.
