# introduction 3/3

It went downhill from there. I was never an atheist, but I quickly started finding new preferences for how I wanted to live my life, and slowly stopped attending church. It's been a slow process of stripping my mind of all the religious assumptions, which still surprise me. I don't believe in hell. Most churches suck. But this podcast was the first time I've felt like I had a community which allowed me to explore my remaining spiritual beliefs.

Fortunately? my mother is mentally ill, so between her issues and my dad's preoccupation with that & caring for me & my siblings' basic needs, I didn't really take that stuff in.
I felt called to missions early on and attended YWAM for a year of 3 schools. When I tried to go on staff, the funding fell apart and then I really questioned everything. i.e., How do you know you're called? If I was wrong, how would anyone know? How do you do anything for God?

Hi all! Currently living in the Philadelphia area, but moving to Seattle at the end of August. I'm a pilot and air traffic controller - I started as a pilot and still flight instruct, but controlling is the full-time job.
My parents attended a Mennonite church until I was 5, then moved towards fundamentalist independent churches with a very traditional view of gender roles. (see above) I did not do well with that.

more ranting about racism towards First Nations 

Still mad at people acting like the removal of Native Culture isn't their fault.

Did you know that my two aunts were both forcibly sterilized when they were babies because they were First Nations and born before the public found out the Bureau of Indian Affairs was sterilizing fucking babies? The my mom, being the youngest, was the only one who was able to have kids?

BECAUSE THAT'S A FUCKING THING THAT HAPPENED.

Can we get a farewell Gungor concert streamed for Lit Mastodon users? @vishnu @mike 😎

What happens when you "boost"? I assume that it's the Mastodon equivalent of "like," but does it do anything to make it easier for others to find the post?
