I looked all over the apartment for my copy of The Picture of Dorian Gray only to realize I gave it away because I have it on Kindle. 🙄

I was very sad the other day. So I said, "Is that you, God?" Then tears immediately started coming out, and not in the way I normally cry. It was just tears without the crying if you know what I mean. I don't know how to describe what I was feeling in that moment, but it was something. 🤔

@mike and @vishnu, I know y'all have been working on this, and I'm curious if there are plans to include more working class voices on The Liturgists?
