like Acamedia, but for churches

Saturday's When All Are Welcome Except For Me: Ways To "Queer Up" Church workshop ended up being attended almost wholly by CWM folk, and afterward I was talking to Mark and saying there were folks I knew from different church communities that might have been interested and I should have thought to invite them too and it frustrates me that there isn't an efficient way to share information across different groups (I kept biting my tongue on saying that we -- the churches on College Ave. -- are "siloed" -- the term that gets used a lot for how the different departments at my work function).

Mark said maybe that's my call to activism.  I said that given how much I talk about interfacing between different communities and how much I talk about liking the organizational aspect of my job, that might actually be true :)

I want a publicly accessible calendar, where you can filter events by tags.  I suspect this does not exist.


While I'm talking about informing people about events...

"Beloved, we are God's children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed." (1 John 3:2)

I spent about 12 hours out of my house on Sunday, home for about 20 minutes in the middle.  However, in that brief period of being home I checked my email and had an email with news that so gladdened me re: [redacted v. Holy Saturday] and as a bonus made me really happy re: [redacted v.2].

I'm still feeling avoidant about doing anything productive, but today I pushed myself to do various small things on my plate and to make headway on bigger things like catching up on CWM Financial Secretary stuff.  I really do not like talking about myself in ways that sound to me like clinical depression.  I am really committed to this self-identity of being a high-functioning person.  I also feel like I'm really emotionally healthy (I don't feel emotionally drained by the past few weeks, I was proud of my emotional maturity about something today, etc.) -- so it feels inaccurate to use words like "depression."

"On either side of the river is the tree of life...and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations." (Revelations 22:2)
