Following the lead from @danielmrose and @mike for !

Hey all! My name is Chris, but my really close friends call me Kai, for reasons that I'll get into eventually, I hope. I live in Hawaii and am a grad student of communications looking into how we humans communicate faith, fixation, and passion!

Started my deconstruction about a year ago and it has been a crazy roller coaster. If anybody wants to talk about the doubt and faith process on God, I'm down for a good chat anytime!

Vague posting... 

The worst part of a Disneyland vacation? The fact that you have to go home eventually...

While I get that I shouldn't let this phase me, and I should give him some space to really consider things, it really hurts because I've been through A LOT with this friend. I've got a few issues when it comes to abandonment, so not being able to work it out with someone who means so much to me really hurts...

I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be able to sleep well tonight and I'm feeling pretty depressed right now... Thought I'd put out feelers since you guys always have some good insight.

How do you guys navigate adult friendships? My best friend and I are having a bit of a spat because we can't agree over an academic analysis of things, and even though I've told him multiple times that I'm not trying to shut down his view, he's accusing me of being stubborn and self-assured (despite the fact that he often comes across that way to a lot of people).

It all feels so juvenile but I think he may have even blocked my texts for the time being.

1/2

Has anybody here ever dreamt in a genre? Like... I get that some nightmares could definitely fall under the "horror" category, but I just woke up from a musical dream in which my best friend and I sang a song to her ex about why the, "we can still be friends," thing never actually works out.

It was amazing and beautiful and I loved every second of it.

I want to learn to master this art of the dream musical.

Hearing "You and Me" by William Matthews was a turning point in my deconstruction. It was how I started to pull myself out of depression, embraced uncertainty, and began to learn the true meaning of faith.

For anybody who has similar attachment to this song, his Kosmos album, or his music in general, check out his new music video for "You and Me," premiering on Monday July, 8.

Found this new song from William today. I already adored his work on Kosmos, but this song just tore my heart apart in all the right ways.

Anybody every heard of Ecosia? It's a search engine that plants trees when you search for things! It's even in the App Store as a web browser. It works just as well for me as Chrome ever did, and I get to support the environment with my web surfing! I figured you guys might be interested in it =)

Hey there friends. I haven't been on quite as much these days, but I want to make sure to be intentional about this community, because I love you all so much. How's everybody doing? Anything anybody got on their minds?

Just listened to the 100th episode and am currently wiping my eyes from the tears it caused. @mike @vishnu @hillarymcbride @WilliamMatt22 WE LOVE YOU TOO!
