We had Rev. Jerry Herships on the podcast and it was quite a conversation. Have a listen if y’all have a moment
After deconstruction, I struggled to find the right "label" for myself for years. Who was I? I finally settled on two concepts: 1) No label encompasses me and I will no longer limit myself with labels of any kind. 2) When people ask me if I am Christian / Buddhist / Republican / Democrat etc, my response is "That is up to you to decide - and whatever you decide is fine by me." So label away if you are most comfortable with a short-hand version of life. I prefer the un-cut version.

Regarding the state of the UMC LGBTQAI+ issues
A statement from my podcast
For those saddened by the UMC decision.
"When faith is completely replaced by creed,
worship by discipline,
love by habit,
when the crisis of today is ignored because of the splendours of the past;
when faith becomes an heirloom rather than a living fountain;
when religion speaks only in authority rather rthan the voice of compassion,
it's message becomes meaningless".
Abraham Joshua Heschel
Hey y'all - Some might be interested in my podcast, Voice in the Wilderness. It's a perspective on deconstruction and healing spiritual wounds. And telling stories. Right up all y'all's alley, I'm sure, as I have been very much inspired by #theliturgists and the work of Rob Bell, Peter Rollins, Ram Dass and others. Cohosted by my good friend and bandmate, Tia Brown, who's laughter is contagious.
Take a listen, if you have a moment. Peace.
Hey y'all, I'm new to this tooting thing, didn't really get into twitter much, but I'm excited about a place that's less reactive and volatile. My name is Joe, and I'm a husband, father of two boys, musician, and podcaster. I, like so many here, have gone through a very difficult faith transition, and had a difficult time finding a place in church, but I love Christ, and I love Buddhist meditation. And I also love philosophy. So far, I like this place!
Just listened to Ram Dass, Here and Now podcast (highly recommended) on spiritual practice, also a topic #theliturgists covered on today’s episode. I’m developing my own meditation practice and have really made progress using some guided meditations. Any suggestions for staying focused and/or keeping it effective flying solo (without science mike in my ear?)
Thank you Science Mike and Vishnu Dass for all you have done and continue to do. The Liturgists, and other voices, have helped me salvage a spiritual life out of my post-religious, post-alcoholic fog of a consciousness.
However, most of the people in my circle either don't listen to podcasts or have never heard of y'all... So I created my own podcast. I Hope everyone in this beautiful network might check it out and, ideally, enjoy it.
