My older brother by 9 years introduced me to the liturgists in the first place, when I was already deconstructing much of my foundational beliefs. Since then, the dynamic between my brother and I has become a unique one where typically, he as the older brother would have a sense of authority over me on a topic, now he asks me about his beliefs and how to interact in a conservative Christian environment without (for him) getting angry or shouting at someone for not seeing how 'wrong' they are 1/2

This place is amazing. Being my first experience with this kind of media, I was terrified but equally longing to connect. Writing a toot may take me 10 minutes and I still haven't figured out how to catch up on the roots of day in chronological order. But I love all the life bubbling up from this little meeting place. If this much life springs in this place, how much life are you all bringing to the larger world?! Thanks, everyone, for brightening my day 😊

The real important questions we should ask ourselves at the end of every day:
Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone's face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger & resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love?

@mike I was never a twitter user and lately have been fed up with social media, and been looking to roll back but get into more long form reading and less reactionary topics. turns out that this community can do both. thanks mastadon/#theliturgists!

Hi everyone. I’m a researcher in disaster studies and just moved from Australia to Florida. I grew up in Ireland as a missionary kid and as an adult went from fundie to liberal Christian in the 2000s to my current non-belief in 2013. 3W2. Great to be here!

Hi I don't know how this platform works but since it's brand new my parents don't know it exists, so no chances of them finding this 😂😂 😂

I'm Debs (she/her). I'm queer/bi/pan/non-binary/femme. I'm married and have a dog named Strider. I got kicked out of church when I came out to my small group, and I left evangelicalism forever. Currently exploring paganism and learning to love Jesus again.

MEN I want y'all to hear me: you are a loving, healing force in my heart. In the last 48 hours, we have (1) giggled at our cute dogs/cats, (2) gotten DRUNK () & chatted freely & gleefully, & (3) I have shared my knowledge of . NOT ONE of you has explained my ideas to me, relentlessly cross examined/dismissed me, cussed at me, or talked to me as anything but your friend on equal footing. We have been PALS. This has NEVER EVER happened to me online. ♥️♥️♥️

Hi everyone. My wife has been telling me to take more time for myself. So I skipped out on work today (cough, cough 😉) and took a “me” day. I did some reading, had a great yoga practice, went to lunch with my wife, and even played some Catan with my kids after dinner. It was a great day!

Late in the afternoon, I rode my mtn bike up a nearby hill and sat on a rock and just breathed for a while.

Not all days can be like this, but I wish a similar level of health and peace to you all today.

Alright I'll see if the content warning works this time. I had some thoughts about the Buddhist idea of 'suffering'
