hello all I am Raphael and I am the admin of interfaith.masto.host, an interfaith instance that welcomes all faith/religion/spirituality/term of your choosing backgrounds and people to come and discuss their beliefs in a respectful and fun manner.

I myself consider myself a Christian and am currently in seminary getting my Masters of Divinity. I am still exploring the bounds of my faith as a queer latine Christian and what that means for me.

I hope you may join me in your journey

Hi everyone, I'm looking to shut down this instance for undisclosed reasons. If anyone wants to keep this ship going, please message me so I can hand the steering wheel to you. Otherwise, I'll be looking to shut down this instance in about 2 weeks (October 20th). Thanks for making this time together good.

Wishing everyone a blessed and contemplative Ash Wednesday and Lenten season

school, classes offered 

There's been changes to the course schedule at seminary and they added a class called "Race Talk" which I'm considering taking given how interesting the description sounds.

Make me an instrument of Your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is sorrow, joy.

Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive, and in pardoning that we are pardoned, and in dying that we are born to eternal life.

religion mention, books, school 

I literally have nothing to do for my assignments until like next week (which is just a weekend away I suppose) but I'm just sitting here not knowing what to do and I want to read this book on the connection between Christ and mental health, but I feel like I *can't* because I have school....

In any case, this Christ-mental health connection book is still so fascinating I need more of these

religion 

hot take of the day i just saw: does Paul from the bible is gay? 🤔

religion, biblical names 

I’m reading Genesis for the first time in a long time and I know these names have been anglicized (sp?) and translated into English in many ways, but why would someone with such a cool name as Mahalalel call your child Jared?????

Hey yall, I was trying to figure out how to change up the look of this place and make the character count a bit larger but bc im using masto.host its not as easy as it seems seeing that the bulk of the managing of the actual instance is by masto.host. Not sure what to do next. 🤷

religion, race 

i was reading a book that introduced briefly (in a sentence, not even going into it in detail so i dont think it was even introducing bu anyways) the concept of Samson from the bible's hair being dreadlocks and I'm like interesting! I'll admit I've never thought of that because of the inherent whiteness of western Christianity, so I looked up pictures and this was the first image on google images and im disappointed
