"Perhaps quantum physics can help us reclaim what we’ve lost because our dualistic minds couldn’t understand or experience the living paradox that Jesus represents. Now science is confirming there is no clear division between matter and spirit. Everything is interpenetrating. As Franciscan scientist and theologian Ilia Delio says, “We are in the universe and the universe is in us.”

Because this is , this instance will include LGBTQ people AND people trying to work through their theology around marriage. Our server will include people of color AND people who are just starting to confront white supremacy. This split will apply as well to feminism, womanism, ableism, etc.

I like that. I want it to be a good thing. Here's how we can do that:

here's something i've been struggling with lately: deconstruction / journey away from christianity has resulted in me having basically two different friend groups, christians im still friends with and people who don't think about or care about spirituality.

i don't really know where to find a community irl that is spiritual but not necessarily christian. i've visited a meditation center in my neighborhood a couple times but no one really talks to anybody.

any ideas?
