Southern Baptists, exvangelical 

I did it: I just talked with one of the elders at my southern baptist church and told him I was - we hit a number of topics including 🏳️‍🌈 and how to read scripture. It was better than expected and I’m officially leaving the church. Going to small group on Tuesday to say goodbye.

Brave work. I hope you can find the space and community you need. Maybe your actions will free others the do the same.

@andrewmurray86 thanks! I do hope so.

@roberttheiv proud of you my guy. That’s hard and brave and courageous. How is your family responding?

@danielmrose generally well. My wife has been thrown for a bit of a loop unfortunately. She is having trouble not blaming my Christian counselor who introduced me to the spiral dynamics episode of the liturgists. We will work it out, not sure how the kids will respond to me going to a different church tomorrow 😰

@roberttheiv ah man. That’s hard. Hang in there.

@Philexvy relieved definitely. Nervous because I now officially don’t have a church home. I desperately need community.

I realized the importance of embodiment at Kin but I also realized it’s something you ideally need to do in community. The liturgists on Mastadon is amazing but embodiment is inherently diminished without sitting across from someone.

I’m nervous I’m not going to find what I’m looking for.

@roberttheiv @Philexvy we we're just talking about community making on Sunday. I'll find it & tag you hold on
