Pinned toot

I've been lurking and commenting here and there for about a week, but I figure I will finally introduce myself. Very new to - only found the podcast a couple weeks ago. Husband and father of three kids and one Havanese (pictured). From northern Virginia, although I lived in the LA area most of my life (born and raised). Lazy mystic, lover of stories of grace, and in the process of finally stepping outside of evangelicalism rather than just stewing in my otherness there.

Happy Reformation Day! Thank God for holy trouble makers who won't shut up when they see something wrong with the system and who speak truth to power because here they stand; they can do no other, so help them God. For Martin Luther and Martin Luther King, Jr and Dorothy Day and Daniel Berrigan and Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Liz Theoharis and William Barber and Jonathan Daniels and Simone Campbell and Gary Lamb and Jeffrey Newman and all those who don't get their names in the paper. <3

A rant about Church goers and pastors... (-) 

Merton’s unmasks the 😈 

So, given that everything that has ever existed in the universe at one time was contained in a single point, can we not say that physics itself testifies to the fact that everything in the universe is literally one? How can we insist on our separateness given this reality?

Evangelical Self-Reflection? 

@Lisagungor @vishnu My heart is full after tonight’s show as well! Thank you so much for your art, for your humor, and most of all for your vulnerability. You are both truly beautiful human beings.

US Politics - Democratic field 

Learn from a tree today. A tree does not have a false self which seeks to become something that it is not. It simply exists in its treeness, letting itself be swayed by the wind, basking in the sunlight. We have been given this gift of consciousness, but instead of using it to be our true selves, in unity with God, people, and all of creation, we seek to be anything other than what we were created to be. And it makes us miserable.
