Today a thousand years
Of strained affection and prayer
"Out beyond ideas of right and wrong is a field"
Will I meet you there?
Will I meet you there?
The summer garden blooms
With autumn soon replaced
Another harvest moon
So many ways to lose
So many faiths

@JeanetteJohnson @teeny @JeanetteJohnson @teeny Rather than be too prescriptive I thought that we could just start reading the book on Monday and just chat about it as we go. In last week I imagine there will be some summary discussions. As there won’t be plot points to reveal I don’t spoilers will be a problem. If we find that more structure is required changes can be made for the next book.

Sorry folks. I wish there was a privacy setting that would post ONLY within the Liturgists instance. Unfortunately, it's not setup to run that way currently.

Be mindful of your what you post. Mom could be watching. Or AngryPastorJoe. Or that skeevy neighbor... eww.

Your questions may be in good faith, but they can be tiring to others. Especially if you're discussing the need for cws or trying to understand how people are marginalized cws are your friend. Please try to be aware of any privileges you may have that may be blinding you to other people's experiences. I am trying to improve on all of these things myself. Let's not be a bother to other instances!

There should be a globe symbol near the camera and CW symbol that you can click. It will give you several options including public, follower-only, unlisted, and direct message

He was 17 when he was murdered.
