@vishnu if you’re at Namm check out Meinl Sonic Energy and Feel Sound (the monochord). Amazing!
@mike Have you ever considered or looked into the notion that you might be an Empath?
The information may seem “woo” or at least highly non-logical but learning about this part of myself has given me legitimate strategies to heal myself and form healthier patterns with others. I realized for me it is such a core component of who I am, no wonder I struggled so much.
Just an observation, or perhaps at least you may be a highly sensitive person. Elaine Aaron has done research on that subject. <3
@justincalebbryant Great podcast!

A good update on the conversation a while ago about “What is a cult?”
Hey @mike @vishnu - I have an acquaintance you may want to consider having on your podcast, she is a Doctoral student at Duke university and has done serious scholarly work on how scribes intentionally altered bible texts to lesson the role of Mary Magdalain. The coolest part? I know her from professional music- she wrote an entire album about a spiritual experience she had that caused her to do this work. She is most recently on ep 46 of the Faith & Feminism Podcast.
@mike I noticed that official episode discussion are not getting posted in Patreon or Discourse. Is this a feature or a bug?
Really had what I liked most about the earlier episodes, fantastic treatment of the topic AND we get to hear from all four hosts!
Felt amazing. Very moving.
This feels like more of a post for Mastadon than Discourse. Not sure if anyone still sees this.
Last night I had the “I’ve deconstructed talk” with my father-in-law of 11 years who is also a pastor. It went surprisingly well, I guess because I’ve had time to process what I believe now, and he is a good person.
Still, I’m left reeling. It’s clear by his emphatic emphasis on importance of the proper christology that my current beliefs are going to take extreme grace to navigate with the family.
Super fun week at my wife’s family reunion. Really crazy watching the struggle unfold around assertive communication in all kinds of ways. They grew up PK. What is it about church culture that breeds passive/aggressive? Everyone is always trying to acquiesce to everyone else, and it’s not always healthy!
