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!
Discourse is more intuitive and familiar to most used when compared to other platforms such as Slack. However, you maybe still wish to check out this handy tutorial: https://discourse.theliturgists.com/t/how-to-discourse-new-user-guide/
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.
Anybody else really digging the Liturgists Discourse community? The flat threading is taking me a while to get used to, but having conversations broken up by subject and topic is pretty great, and so far, it feels like Discourse & Mastodon should complement each other nicely. Well done, @mike.
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

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 https://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!
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.
