@mike Have you ever considered or looked into the notion that you might be an Empath?

The information may seem โ€œwooโ€ 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

After Tootdon died (was murdered?) I switched to Tootle, but am looking for another iOS client because itโ€™s hard to manage other features like profile editing and search. I liked Tootdon. Any other good suggestions?

Man, I used to post a lot on here. RIP Tootdon. Hello Discourse.

Harrumph...the narcissistic conceit of Apple removing the audio jack from iPhones...still smh years on in the fumbling and finding fussy adapters.

A good update on the conversation a while ago about โ€œWhat is a cult?โ€


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.

Hi friends (please delete if this isn't allowed)

I just finished a new instrumental EP with the title track name inspired by THIS. I would love to share it with all of you! Feel free to listen to it on your platform of choice here: levelmusic.lnk.to/lpG1AL

@mike I noticed that official episode discussion are not getting posted in Patreon or Discourse. Is this a feature or a bug?

How was LA Tabs and Waffles everybody? I couldnโ€™t go, even though it was close.

Hey, I noticed that there still is no Patreon thread for the Prayer episode so I wanted to share my feeling @vishnu @mike that you nailed it with the new format you guys have been discussing!

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 โ€œIโ€™ve deconstructed talkโ€ with my father-in-law of 11 years who is also a pastor. It went surprisingly well, I guess because Iโ€™ve had time to process what I believe now, and he is a good person.

Still, Iโ€™m left reeling. Itโ€™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 wifeโ€™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 itโ€™s not always healthy!

I like the new Discourse but still enjoy the randomness of the Mastadon instance. Itโ€™s like being exposed to new thought without having to know what to dig for.

Just wish there was a way here to still be seen by the whole local whole masking yourself from www search. Anyone else?

If you haven't already, turn on the nighttime mode on your devices a few hours before bed. Blue light disrupts your sleep.
