Note to self:
None of us are getting out alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought.
Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you're carrying in your heart like a hidden treasure.
Be silly. Be weird. Be kind. There's no time for anything else.
PSA toot: do not give up on this platform because you are afraid you aren’t deep enough, or have the right book to recommend, or scientific theory to cite. You are welcome here. Playfulness, encouragement, and sharing joy - is welcome here. #TheLiturgists
38 y/o, happily married, with 3 daughters. A pastor's kid who left the faith and did the whole sex, drugs, & rock 'n' roll thing in high school. Came back to faith in a major way as a young adult in a charismatic church. Over time, became disillusioned and started questioning why the church didn't seem to really follow scripture. Then, Trump became the GOP nominee and I saw so many I respected in the church vote for him and support him, which pushed deconstruction into overdrive.
I've been hesitating to put up "solutions" reaources because they invite so much mansplaining & abuse, & because it's a complicated discussion informed by privilege in all kinds of ways. But we can get into all that another day. For now, some things YOU can do. I'll link to another one below. (1/2)
I'm trying to find where my place is
I'm looking for my own oasis
So close I can taste this
The fear that love alone erases
Love alone is worth the fight
