The Universal Christ - Richard Rohr
I’m barely into “The Universal Christ” by Richard Rohr and I’ve had [email protected] blown like 5 times already. One time at the level of a reverse panic attack, whatever that is. Had to stop listening and just breathe for a minute.
I just took my first look at the Federated timeline (I'm new to this as I never had a twitter account). Below is one of the first toots that I saw. I had to laugh. I'm very happy to be part of this "creepy, culty, friendly" liturgists family! I think I'll stick to the local timeline! 😊
"I'm not here to tell anybody how to live their lives, but maybe hide social.theliturgists.com if you don't want a bunch of creepy culty friendly weirdos in your mentions telling you about enneagrams"
Thrust together by a troll attack and an offer of coin, our unlikely band were tasked with investigating a disappearance. Following an evening of sleuthing, sneaking, and some extremely well-thrown darts, they find themselves apparently alone in the warehouse which was the last known location of the man they seek.
Where they go from here is up to them, but I look forward to finding out!
I searched for the tag #Buddhist6 and it's like the end of the movie Spartacus. A whole hillside of folk yelling 'I'm Spartacus! ' 'no I'm Spartacus!'
We are legion it seems 😜
Reading books or conversing with Christians, I often react negatively to phrases with “God” in them. It is because I am hearing God as a paternal figure separate from me and I dislike it intensely. But then I realized I view a god as a great oneness, the essence, the source not separate. Usually the Christian phrase does not upset me when I replace the god construct in it with the one I have come to understand. I’m not sure what to do with this observation.
@hillarymcbride @mike @vishnu @WilliamMatt22 thank you for the episodes this last year on body image, Embodiment, manhood and masculinity. This week for the first time ever I got a manicure with my fiance, and I loved it! I wouldn't have been confident enough in my skin or my manhood to have done that before. So thank you for helping me be more comfortable with myself and not listening to the horrible script I've been handed by patriarchy! Much love.
We’ve got a new episode of #TheLiturgists Podcast today. It’s called “Fear | Live in Nashville,” and I think it’s one of the most powerful shows that we’ve ever done.
liturgists podcast episode on fear
The fear episode is excellent. Any words I attempt seem woefully short of what I experienced. I experienced oneness and the illusion of time fell away for a few minutes. Fear is good but I have taught my body to fear things I need not fear.
In an age where eveything is measured, tracked, analyzed, and reported in real time, I have to tell you I love how little data I can see about user activity as an admin on a Mastodon instance.
It’s pretty much impossible to collect data here, and this platform is almost worthless from a corporate commincations perspective.
5 stars. I love it.
I am sad, disheartened and down right now. I feel a sense of loss. I have no reason to be that I can think of. However, I have learned that acknowledging my depressive episodes and leaning into and sitting with the pain helps me process and shortens their duration. For some reason I felt the desire to post publicly as a way to stay in the moment would be good, so here I am.
Facebook is a terrible company.
I want to delete my account so much, but my damn blue check makes it hard for someone to peronsonate me over in that hell hole of a trash fire. https://www.fastcompany.com/90314763/now-facebook-is-allowing-anyone-to-look-you-up-using-your-security-phone-number
Self care/self preservation
I'm a first aid trainer - the first principle we teach is "don't become another casualty". All that does is make someone else to be rescued when help arrives. Look for danger and take care of yourself.
The same is true in life - you help nobody by neglecting or endangering yourself to the point you become "another casualty".
#introduction I'm Shawn and I'm excited to be here. I'm new to the Liturgist and I'm part of the Liturgist Community on Facebook.
I'm married with two children and grew up in the evangelical church. I've never felt good about what was taught. So, I guess I'm in the process of deconstructing.
I broke my back a year ago in a tragic accident. It really sucks but at least I'm not paralyzed and it brought me on the path that I'm on now. #everythingbelongs
