I had been shunned for feeling similar perspectives; by some nice Christian dear friends. Looking forward to joining in this deeper thinking & reading broader perspectives.

Comment on “Not My Christianity”?: Moving Toward Healthier Responses to the Attempted Coup by DS Leiter http://assertivespirituality.com/2021/01/09/not-my-christianity-attempted-coup-responses/#comment-18310 Mon, 11 Jan 2021 20:47:43 +0000 http://assertivespirituality.com/?p=1176#comment-18310 In reply to Jack Heppner.

Yes, agreed. Also much different from being peacekeepers. I recommend searching the site back to read some of the early posts and especially the series on the toxic sides of “Christian nice.” Thanks so much for your thoughtful comment! Sincerely, DS Leiter, Founder, Assertive Spirituality

I think it goes much beyond being a non-involved pacifist as my tradition taught.

Hi Bernie! Sorry for the delay–if you email me at assertivespirituality @ gmail I’ll do my best to re-send. Did the final welcome email get stuck in your spam folder, though? Might want to search back through the emails we sent you. I’m sorry to hear you haven’t gotten to read it! Cheers, DS Leiter, Founder, Assertive Spirituality

If I need too sign up some other way please let me know. Thanks.

Comment on Reaching Toward Pandemically Precautious Healthy Holidays by Bob Olhsson http://assertivespirituality.com/2020/11/21/reaching-toward-a-pandemically-precautious-holiday-season/#comment-17826 Sun, 22 Nov 2020 14:47:39 +0000 http://assertivespirituality.com/?p=1157#comment-17826 Something that frustrates me is that the reason we must social distance is being misrepresented. While it certainly involves covid, it is really about the lack of sufficient medical personnel and hospital space to treat people for all manner of ailments.

It feels like it’s the least we can do when we use social media.

I have well meaning Christian friends who profess that anger and negativity are bad at a time like this adding to the chaos. Well I am fearful and angry and your offering today gives validity to those feelings. I have told my “no negativity” friends that I fear “Rome is burning.” And I imagine Germans were talking flowers and art as Hitler rose up to take over and begin his extermination. The day Trump takes off with a bus full of migrants to toss in the river I need to know at some point I stood up and shouted “I believe this is wrong.” Be it negative or not! I feel you there with me and I thank you. Glad to know you’ll still be standing by if we lose the fight this week. Bernie

I’m glad to hear you’ve been finding the work meaningful and helpful, Bernie! Same as with Rachel above, you should have received the link to that just after your subscription came through. If you continue to have trouble finding it, please message me at our inbox at FB.me/AssertiveSpirituality and I’ll do my best to get it to you as soon as I dig out from my midterm-grading swamp. Thanks much!

Hi Rachel! It should have come in your final welcome email, if you finished signing up for the email newsletter. Get in touch through our messaging feature at FB.me/AssertiveSpirituality if you’ve continued to have trouble finding it. Apologies for my delay on this–this is a side project and I’m teaching university classes online because of the pandemic and I’ve been swallowed up in grading midterms.
