hell, religion, YouTube video on these topics 

While we're on the topic of hell... youtu.be/YyleOw07ISQ

This is about Paul the Apostle, Apostles as memes? Sacrilege? 

correct me if im wrong but i read this and thought of this: youtube.com/watch?v=HEkREWMt6D

@FromtheAbyss yeah, I was listening to alternative when the question popped into my head so that's why I thought of alternative myself so I get why you thought of those genres as well. Interesting to think about!

@FromtheAbyss I thought some alternative too when I thought of this question! Didn't think of RATM at all, curious about that though...

@jelle_dc great graph, except historically speaking not everyone would listen to him

If Jesus was alive today what music would he listen to?

religion 

@artsyhonker Easter will be very weird, my church is promising an Easter 2.0 celebration post this whole situation so we can *really* celebrate so we will see how that goes as well!

Hope everyone is holding onto hope in some way during this uncertain time

religion, Christianity, Lenten discipline 

My denomination (the Church of England) has produced a Lent campaign called "#LiveLent: Care for God's Creation" which has readings, reflections and actions for each weekday and weekend in Lent.

Is anyone else here on the Fediverse doing this?

Lent is in 2 weeks and this is what I have learned! 

@artsyhonker interesting traditions! I thought about what you had said and I'm still not sure on what I would give up irt something not good for me but accessible to do so if I understand right. I will think more about it. Also yes, 10 days, I am bad at counting and math and whatnot plus I wasn't being hyper specific haha 😅

As for the sermon, I guess that will have to be another post. Thanks for reading.

There's so many ideas to what I could do for lent and i'm getting overwhelmed but like, maybe it's not that big a deal but I want it to be that big a deal?? I'm still trying to grapple with the significance of it.
"The preparation of easter"
Easter is when Jesus came back to life, right?
I am just going to stick to a devotional on my bible app and maybe a morning/nightly prayer in my prayer journal (maybe both?) and tuna fridays

i have like 30 tabs open on different things about Lent and maybe that's why i feel overwhelmed right now and I'm trying to wrap my head around it.
I just had an idea but I don't think it would work because lent ends in easter.
I was told i could do a sermon sometime in mid march and I've been procrastinating on it like no end. I was thinking 40min working on the sermon and I will have it done by easter I'm sure, but then it would be too late

Lent just feels like it's supposed to be a time to look down on our own selves, to look down on our human ways and put down our selfishness in our human ways. Lent in it's encyclopedia wikipedia dictionary definition feels like it's supposed to be some sort of 'I am a horrible being because I am human' and like NOOO Jesus did not Die on that cross for you to do that?? But, is that what Lent is??

I was getting overwhelmed because I was thinking of reading the bible and writing in my prayer journal for 40min for 40 days and then i read that there's actually 46 days in lent and that sundays don't count and i got overwhelmed at that...
and then i thought, maybe God wants me to be kinder to myself as I saw some images on tumblr about giving up unkind words to oneself for lent. That has been a constant message in my recent days.

sorry my last cw's are misleading, lent is still in 2 weeks!

Lent is next week and this is what I have learned! 

celebrate it as seriously as others do? In any case, as I researched traditions and talked with others to what they do, I indulged myself in what I could do. Give up social media for lent? Sounds reasonable! But I am not sure I could do that given my only support is in social media.
I decided on a tradition that is very much Catholic and because I am not the biggest fan of fish, tuna sandwich friday for 40 days it is! That starts...the 28th?
