Liturgists (and onlookers), are you participating in this week and next? How so?

My work has given us the 20th and 27th off to get involved. I work for an awesome small business but work remotely in a very small town. Not sure whether demonstrations are planned here yet, but I think the schools are involved. I'm going to get out on the streets with a sign and/or raise some awareness on my socials.

I’m reading “The Body Keeps the Score” and, among other things, it really makes me double down on my already strong “fuck war” stance.

Christians saying government buildings shouldn’t fly the Pride flag because it’s offensive to Christians...
but are totally cool with government buildings flying the Confederate Flag...

Do other women-identified folk frequently get personally attacked when they speak up and or have a difference of opinion with men-identified folk?

John Oliver broke The Science Guy, and it's incredible 😂 (The rest of the episode is definitely worth the watch too, but the real gold is right at the end).

Trigger warning: Contains swears and a childhood hero going pretty dark.

I cannot process RHE being gone. I always enjoyed hearing her talk on the podcasts and explain complex issues in a way that made sense and allowed them to be applied to everyday life. I cannot imagine the pain and grief that her family is going through. Her voice will be greatly missed in this universe. 😥

Art is not about theological indoctrination. It is not a didactic process where inventiveness and imaginative formation are pulled up as if they were weeds choking a spiritual life.

Instead of a tribal adherence to behavioral conformities and ideologies, it reveals the heartbeat of others that transcends the thin veneer of our senses and rational constructs.

Hey everybody so instagram deleted Jamie Lee Finch’s account bc she was reported so much for sharing the cover of her new book, which features the body of a woman (GASP). Nipples not even exposed (regardless of that bullshit policy). If you’re on other social media would you join me in raising a damn stink to IG about this instafuckery?

evangelical christians and anger 

Hi all! I don't really know how to work this thing still....

But I have a question:
I get a lot of pushback from evangelicals about how "angry" I am and how it is sinning to "judge others" when I am calling out injustice.

How do you (regardless of your religion) view righteous anger in your theology or lack thereof?

What has been the biggest change in your spirituality or worldview?

I'm listening to the . Rob is talking about being in as a teenager and catching how a does the whole "bow your heads/close your eyes" and "if you just prayed that to accept , raise your hand so only I can see" and of course then he does the whole "I see a hand there... Oh I see that hand... Etc" even though there are no raised hands. I caught a pastor doing that once and haven't really trusted a pastor since.

Just watched “Crazy Rich Asians”. I loved it!! Anyone else’s thoughts ...?

I'm lately of the mind that Christianity would have been better off without Paul, and at any rate everything he wrote should be treated merely as his subjective opinions.

Deconstruction/reconstr 

@Ralf Being alone is a scary place. At the end of my deconstruction, there was nothing. No one around me understood what it was. Neither did I. Even those who helped me during that time weren’t there when I came to the end of it. It wasn’t until reconstruction began that I didn’t feel alone anymore. But one can’t rebuild unless one destroys. At least, that’s my experience.

Climate Change:

Anyone care to share what steps they have taken to try to reduce their carbon footprint?

Anyone have any positive stories to share of people they have spoken to or minds they have changed?

I need some good news!

Rant about Christianity 

I am so done with white, cishet, conservative Christianity. I’m done with those who subscribe to this brand of Christianity, and vehemently deny the instrinsic oppression it is rooted in & thrives on. I don’t think it’s possible to truly love your neighbor while simultaneously partaking in a brand of religion that actively excludes and oppresses your neighbor. I want to be loving and kind toward people I disagree with, but today I’m just straight up angry.
