I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.
This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.
I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.
@Ricci it is a twist of the scripture to perpetuate an organization and career.
I would go to a church that was a non-stop party. Who’s this weeks celebrant, which band you want, what’s your menu? Everyone’s invited!
You only got $10, throw that in the tip jar for the band! Those with much get to bless those with little!
Crappy donuts, crappy coffee, un-fun music, and a bunch of pastor-bation.
@sound That's why I'm switching my faith to the Easter Platypus, a mammal that actually does lay eggs.
Visually cool and trippy instagram share
@sound I saw a mom explaining communion to her son who must have been 5 or 6. He had the most confused look on his face. Then I over heard, “but this is just juice.” I can only imagine what goes through a 5 year olds head when he’s being told to drink someone’s blood.
I mean communion can be beautiful, but in that context at that specific church it all felt way too morbid.
#introduction (2) I have two theological degrees and ten years of experience in student affairs. At one time I made a pretty great spiritual director, if I do say so myself. These days I am #broke but I do have supportive family, a kind boyfriend, and the cutest pug you have ever seen. Still, I miss my old life in the church. I hope my #grieving eventually leads me to a place where I feel happy and secure again. <3
#introduction (1) My parents named me a week after I was born because they wanted to choose a name that fit with their sense of who I was in the world. They chose the name "Kristen," which means Christian. I was happiest in prayer and I knew everything through my spirituality. When I lost Christianity, I lost everything: my sense of self, coping mechanisms, career aspirations, models and mentors, regular moments of meaningfulness and inspiration with people I loved.
Well, I think the Liturgists mastodon instance just found its anthem.
