Monday Gratitude List:

1. A job that lets me work from home instead of having to wear pants and sit at a desk

2. This platform and the connections I'm growing on it

3. Meditation (and the tingly feeling of embodied alignment that always follows it)

4. The reading I get to do when I'm done with work

5. Ariana Grande's new album

Your turn!

stuff like this is why I'll never be able to fully leave twitter no matter how much @mike hypes it

Even though there is a scientific explanation for something doesnt make it less magical. Plants eat sunlight. The moon moves the tides.

Stop your scroll

Release the tension in your jaw

Take 3 deep breaths, paying attention to ever second. in and out.

Ask your body "what do you need right now?"

Give it space and silence to respond

Ask your heart "what do you need right now?"

Give it space and silence to respond

Take the answers seriously and honor them as best you can.

“The opposite of faith is not doubt: It is certainty. It is madness. You can tell you have created God in your own image when it turns out that he or she hates all the same people you do.”

PSA toot: do not give up on this platform because you are afraid you aren’t deep enough, or have the right book to recommend, or scientific theory to cite. You are welcome here. Playfulness, encouragement, and sharing joy - is welcome here.

My love language is people telling me how much they love and frequently listen to the spotify playlists I make.

@frankiedoodledandy @MonolithImmortal A mentor recently told me that the church forgets that the mission is not the church, but that the church is a tool to fulfill the mission. That's really helped me keep perspective.

Church, Guilt Messaging

@frankiedoodledandy I guess I can see the argument that we are supposed to go for worship and community to fellowship with. However, if the message they spread is hurtful and damaging to our mental health and happiness then how could being part of their community be helpful? They mean they want us to let them “teach us” how to think and feel and be good little Christians. They don’t want us to have real faith or a relationship with God, they just want us as part of their numbers and control.

Just ran across this on Facebook and needed a place to minorly rant about it.

I wouldn't let eating at a bad restaurant stop me from eating out but if I'd eaten at 5 different IHOPs and they all insulted my humanity and force fed me stuff I hated, I might stop going to that particular chain.

It's a bad comparison and feels like this pastor is just copping out from actually dealing with church issues.

Would love to hear anyone else's thoughts!

not to be horny on main, but y'all ever seen moss covered embankments bounding woodland streams burbling lazily over stones worn smooth by the centuries?

HEY! I'm Frankie. I'm a recovering evangelical striving for a newly experiential knowledge of God.

Just this past month I finally removed myself from the reformed baptist church I'd been a part of since childhood, after a near year of becoming less and less comfortable with the definition of Christianity I'd known. I had to do months of research and reflection () before finally taking the step, and the Liturgist was an continues to be such a needed resource in that process.
