Content Type: You can't fail G-d
Just when life feels like it couldn't be any more effed up, G-d says hold my beer. We walk through life facing abuse, addiction, trauma, suicidal or intrusive thoughts, neurodivergence, sex and identity, politics or swear more than Jonah Hill. Our typical faith communities are often missing out on a beautiful opportunity to see the full beauty of G-d's face, ultimately doing more damage than good. An M&M in a bowl of Skittles. Slip into my candy shell and try to fit in, hoping no one discovers that my insides don't feel the same. You are G-d’s presence. You are not a problem to be fixed. You are the joy of G-d. You are the journey of G-d. You ARE G-d experiencing life. Suicidal? You are here now. Addiction? You are here now. Depression? You are here now. Joy? You are here now. Hunger (passion or physical)? You are here now. Visionary/Artist? You are here now. Now is all that is. You are the one, you are all. You are both that M&M and an integral, essential light in this beautiful rainbow of life. You are the cells of the body. Dace my lovely body of Christ. Let's dance together.
