I just sent my VERY LATE manuscript to my publisher and I would die of happiness if I weren’t so exhausted.

Mike's dream is to create an online community that is 1. controlled by The Liturgists (to protect your data), 2. easy to use, 3. has robust anti-harassment features, & 4. protects privacy and anonymity. This Discourse community has the ability to do that and more!

If you login & register with your Patreon credentials, you'll also be able to converse in the Patron-only section without having to rely on the hosts to create posts on Patreon.

The Liturgists want to see you there! Join us today!

It’s true that more nutritious foods cost more. But the increased financial cost is a small piece compared to the time it takes to turn healthy ingredients into meals you actually want to eat.

GOOD NEWS: I am eating a healthy, plant-based diet and my health is improving.

BAD NEWS: I am only able to do this because neither me nor my spouse works outside the home.

We’re able to push back against the HORRIBLE food system in this country by spending hours per day planning and preparing meals.

New platform 

In case y’all haven’t heard: @mike started using another platform called Discourse - it seems so much smoother, easier to use, more secure, and simply better! Definitely worth checking out - you can find links in recent show notes

US Politics 

To be clear: I DO NOT WANT BIDEN TO WIN. I’m just saying White America may get behind him in a big way precisedly because he’s promotiong “civility” and “niceness” as a means of social progress.

US Politics 

The more Joe Biden doubles down on casual racism, the more I think me might not only get the nomination, but win the presidency. There’s A LOT of white people who want validation that having to be racially aware/senstive is unfair, but that Trump is too far.

Facebook destroys everything it touches. It needs to be treated like a public utility and regulated. So does Twitter.

Sorry for the logjam in the moderation queue, yall. I was on medical rest for two weeks, and actually followed doctor’s orders for once in my life. :)

Oh man @mike was in the hospital with a heart condition! He is doing better, but still has work to do. Please do what ever you do - good vibes, prayers, warm fuzzies - he'll take them all.

Hey Liturgists fam - our little corner of the fediverse is apparently pretty hoppin! on the site instances.social, we are 52/5200 (top 1%!) in terms of number of users (3084), but 199/5200 in terms of toots - I guess that means we are less chatty than average. Thank you @mike for setting this up, and giving us an alternative to the Zuckerberg/Dorsey dystopian vision of social media. Good to be here with all of you!

#TheLiturgists #ClimateChange 

Another great reason to do what you can to help with climate change (and all the other connected injustices we face)? It inspires other people. It inspires you. Do the next right thing, big or teeny tiny. We affect each other. Don't despair, and if you do, find other people to do something with.

I'll tell you what I'm doing if it helps.

Fascinating article that the graphic comes from:

Met some amazing people this weekend at in Portland. These two were no exception. Thank you for the amazing show and work you do @mike and @vishnu

I miss her more each day.

Portrait by Gil Gamble for the upcoming book, Holy Troublemakers.

I’ve been a sobbing mess all day as I’ve flown across the country. This is a loss that hurts.

I keep thinking, what will we do without her?
