@mike Do young unarmed white men ever get killed by police? If so do the police get charged?

I like to put music on to help my children go to sleep. This is my "Sleepy Time" playlist that I use most nights. Any recommendations for additions? itunes.apple.com/us/playlist/s

I'm loving this Liturgists instance but I think the only way that I can convince my Twitter-addled brain to check in here frequently is to find multiple communities to join so that my Home feed contains a sizable amount of relevant content.

Anybody come across any other vibrant communities out there?

Today in “obvious things I didn’t realise” I learned that “multi ethnic” and “multi cultural” are not the same thing and that there are some very important distinguishing differences. Thanks to “pass the mic” podcast.

If you've been here a while and feel like helping out, look for posts without any replies in the local feed, and offer a reply of some kind. I want us to create an intentionally supportive community.

Any other current/former worship musicians still playing in church? It’s a far out trip, right? It’s not so bad until sermon time. I can interpret a lot of the song lyrics in a way that I can still feel good singing along. But when the preaching starts.. that’s when it gets awkward for me.

My brother and I were talking two nights ago and I wanted to share the takeaway from our conversation: We're tired of pastors over emphasizing Bible reading. It often becomes the only application point in sermons. What if we emphasized love in action instead? What if we used scripture as a tool to educate us, motivate us and shape us toward living out love? But most sermons are like a friend encouraging us to read "How to go on a date" over and over and never actually... Go on a date.

Favorite thing about mastodon so far, at least on the Toot! app... the “delete and re-draft” function. AMAZEBALLS. I just did a reply and meant to have it “unlisted” but forgot, and I just deleted and re-drafted, fixed it, re-tooted. That is an amazing piece of functionality.

As we get ready to bid farewell to the band Gungor, this is my

Before I met @vishnu, my entire understanding of Gungor was the song Beautiful Things, which I new because I'd played it at church. I remember thinking the song was too textured to be a Christian song, and the lyrics were thoughtful and stuck with me.

After I met @vishnu, I went through the catalog and found it compelling, but it didn't fit the reference frame I was in with the Divine. That changed with I Am Mountain and Vapor in a big way--that's the first record that made me feel like there was music for people like me.

That continued (and intensified) with One Wild Life--which is basically a psychedelic trip transformed into music.
