Politics & Climate Change 

I’m on vacation right now visiting my wife’s family in the Cayman Islands and all I can think about is how low and flat this whole island is. The entire economy and even the country itself could collapse with just a couple meters of sea level rise. Why can’t Kenney and Ford and the rest of them think for one second about island nations like this? They’re all too busy lining their own pockets from the oil sands.

Politics & Climate Change 

What are these oil rich corrupt politicians going to do when we on the coast are under water due to rising sea levels. Are they going to regret their decisions/votes when they’ve got millions of climate refugees from their own country knocking on their door? Not to mentions the millions and millions of climate refugees from the rest of the world.

Politics & Climate Change 

We’ve got a federal election coming up and it looks like its the conservative’s election to lose. And they want to repeal the carbon tax and have no plans to meet the Paris Accords.

Politics & Climate Change 

I can’t stand anyone that politicizes climate change. It shouldn’t be politically divisive to want to do something about climate change. Maybe we can debate about which methods are most effective, but not whether or not to do anything.

Canadian politics keep skewing to the right (pronounced “wrong”) on this issue. Alberta’s new government is going to war with BC trying to build a pipeline and going to war with Ottawa over carbon pricing. It’s nonsense!

Finished “This!” tonight. Thank you @vishnu for this incredible work. All I can say is that now the grass is greener, and the flowers are more vivid. There is more clarity in my boy’s giggles, and a deeper beauty in my wife’s face. Thank you for articulating the feelings many of us have had in our hearts for some time.

Post partum depression 

I'm a mom of two (2.5 yr old and a 2 week old). Did you know 10 % of mothers get PPD/PPA (anxiety)?

If you have a history of mood disorders your chance is even higher, upwards of 20%.

Post partum mood disorders are not your fault. They are treatable and the sooner you get help the faster recovery can be and yes you will be able to enjoy your child (eventually).

Getting help IS being a good mom.

I phoned my psychiatrist today.

Parenting, mindfulness 

Getting lots of practice in patience, waiting for my 3-year-old to do things herself, do things in her own time, or choose to listen to what I'm asking her to do. Lots of chances to pause, be present, accept the slow-down, and choose to just observe. It doesn't always happen this way, but when it does, it feels good.

Found some pretty mushrooms growing in the woods near my house! It's fun exploring nature, and it makes me feel closer to God.

I thought that I was over letting this stuff get me mad. I’m usually pretty good at letting others have their beliefs without judgement. But this one just gets me. It makes God out to be a monster. But when it’s talked about people claim it’s the perfect representation of love. It’s not. It’s just not.

Does anyone else relate to deconstructing penal substitutionary atonement for the BS that it is, but still finding it in every corner of the western Christian church? Do you have other ways of interpreting the cross/Good Friday?

Show thread

Just went to my in-laws’ church for Good Friday service and I’m feeling pretty fuckin triggered right now. Way too much Penal Substitutionary Atonement for one sitting. My saving grace was using my three month old as an excuse to wait out in the foyer. I just don’t get how people can go on and on and on about God’s love AND Jesus dying in our place. Jesus died to save us from the Father? Couldn’t he just forgive us? Isn’t that what he asks us to do? Ugh. I thought I had let go of this struggle

Hey friends! I decided to share my thoughts and feelings towards @vishnu‘s book THIS today in celebration of the release. It’s truly an amazing work that radically impacted so much for me and came at the right time in my life to do the most damage haha.

So if you want to read my..review?...which is in light of my own story a bit, then feel free to check it out here: link.medium.com/jftTeqCWWV

But most importantly, THIS should be pushed ahead of anything else you are reading.
