Pinned toot


Hi all, grew up fundamentalist and have been deconstructing since moving to Japan as a "missionary" in 2008. Cultural integration and wanting to love like Jesus (ironically) was the beginning of the erosion, which became an avalanche of doubt 6 mo. ago when I learned Derek Webb (my homeboy on the fringes!) didn't believe anymore. I've been consuming a steady diet of and ever since. I'm still pretty angry, but at peace with this middle space

Hey world! I'm leaving a youth ministry job in the Alabama south and am moving to CA to being a new journey in faith. Are there any Liturgist or a group that meets up in Sacramento currently?

Friends: I don’t know how this happened, at all, but when I went in for my bone scan results at the cancer center here in our city today, my oncologist told me that there’s NOTHING ON MY BONE SCAN.
😳
What?
This doesn’t happen. Sarcoma doesn’t just disappear from bones without treatment. I’m on immunotherapy, but the spots that showed up on last scans GREW during immunotherapy. So the oncologist didn’t attribute it to anything- just shrugged his shoulders and told me to go plan my summer. ‼️

Liturgists instance - blocking/unfollowing 

I already said this today.

I want to say it again. If you need to block or unfollow someone, do it.

I know we've as all talked like this instance is Paradise, and y'all, it ain't. It's HUMAN, especially now that there are so many of us, so you may need to do this.

Men, you should know that I've heard from women & non-binary folks. We are needing to block people. So be aware, & help out. Most of y'all have been amazing & great. Love to y'all ♥️

#DearWhitePeople No one wants you to feel guilty. Your fragility is hard enough to deal with without you hamming it up performatively. What we want is for you to acknowledge the systemic advantages you have because of whiteness and maybe even do some work to dismantle those systems that unfairly privilege you.

Is there any point in deleting Facebook if I still keep Instagram?

@vishnu @mike so you guys mentioned that getting musicians paid is different now - is the best rate to buy from like...bandcamp or something else, or just lots of youtube or spotify streaming?

Can anyone tell me how to post GIF from a desktop site of mastodon? I'm not computer-stupid, but this has me stumped.

I’m not sure if this is the correct place to post something like this. I was wondering if this community has some ideas on how to make my computer faster. I’m a single dad with little to no budget and most of the money I make goes to pay child support. I’m trying to make extra money doing graphic design on the side so I can get myself through school but my computer is terribly slow.

Any ideas?

Joke, Buddism 

What did the Buddhist Monk say to the hot dog vendor?

Parenting, Sex Ed, Baptist childhood 

My parents abdicated all responsibility for sex ed to the Baptist Church, so it all boiled down to “boys can’t help being horny, girls should wear one-piece bathing suits, sex is a sin, but when virgins (male/female) get married, the sex is amazing, because God.”

I want my girls to have a healthy, fact-based understanding of sex and of their bodies and of their inherent worth.

How do you talk sex as a parent? What were you taught?

In honor of Black History Month, consider downloading Layla Saad’s *free* workbook, “Me and White Supremacy,” and starting the extremely uncomfortable but utterly necessary work of confronting the ways in which you’ve benefited from white supremacy. When I say “you,” I also mean me. This is painful and ugly stuff, but I know the discomfort i feel is not even a drop in the bucket compared to the pain of experiencing racism. Download at meandwhitesupremacybook.com or find her at @laylafsaad on IG

So we're all obviously on Mastodon, which means we all think , but what do we think about Amazon? It's a huge corporation. But I use Prime so much. Should I not? Thoughts?

Finally listening to the transitions episode. It's confirming my decision to leave all other social media. Thanks science Mike for all your efforts to make this a reality
