The United Methodist Church and LGBTQ Equality.
Given today’s vote from the UMC Special Conference, I can no longer call myself a Methodist. In solidarity with LGBTQ people, I am seeking a new churh home.
I know there are faithful Methodists fighting to reform the church. I love & appriciate those people. But, that is not my calling. As laity, I will support and be a part of a denomination that recognizes the full dignity and humanity of all sexual orientations and gender identites.
I dropped a new #AskScienceMike this morning taking with a dear friend about his new film. It was a touching conversation. https://asksciencemike.podbean.com/e/episode-172-at-the-end-of-the-day/
Video post about suicidality.
I recently gave a talk about my experiences with suicidality and what research tells us about the cognitive and emotional factors behind suicide.
I'm posting it because I think there are better ways to talk about suicide, and more we can do to help people struggling with a desire to end their own lives.
Reminder for liturgists people
Don’t take it for granted that everyone you see on your “Home” timeline is from a “Liturgist” background. Like every Mastodon instance, this is a public space. Other liturgists can/do follow, and boost toots from, people on other instances.
Which is good! Just don’t assume everyone you see under “Home” comes from a Christian background or wants to talk about faith stuff.
Omg this #taatr episode has me laughing outloud in my office oh sweet lord. Focus on the Family and the Hashman present The Drunk Alien And a The High Robot talking about fuckin’
So Jenny (my wife) was on #AskScienceMike and I linked to her Instagram profile in the show notes. This morning, she has a bunch of DMs from people approaching her with mental health and life crisis issues.
She asked me what to do and I was like, "I have no idea, but welcome to my world."
I had a great time asking Jenny McHargue (aka my wife) your questions on #AskScienceMike this week. Don't mis this one. https://asksciencemike.podbean.com/e/episode-171-meet-the-honey-badger/

Thanks! This could be cool if I get it to work.
The Liturgists' Social Media
@mike going through social media platforms like I’ve gone through worldviews
The Liturgists' Social Media
But, there's still a big need that isn't met my that mix. Most of the social media activity for our community happens in private Facebook groups--and there is no official group because of my concerns with Facebook as a company.
I'm looking for a platform to live at community.theliturgists.com to act as a more discussion oriented site with the capacity for people to create their own private communities within. I thought friendica could be that platform, but no.
This is an instance for folks who follow The Liturgists Podcast, The Alien & The Robot, and other things The Liturgists create.
