too hipster

"God has wired each of us differently. Some Christians will drink a beer and smoke cigars and get tattoos and pray in the woods by the river with a handmade journal and Lecrae and Mumford and Sons and Nirvana in their iPod — because this is how they meet Jesus. God has a limitless imagination to speak to each of us in a wild variety of ways." This and the rest of the passage is a game changer. Love how you can put what many of us are thinking into words Pastor J.

Hey dear friend, you’re referring to this post.

Thank you for your encouragement. I did get some mean messages about it, I guess because we so quickly fall to “my idea” of what a Christian should look like. For the record, I’m a progressively conservative indie-liberal fundamentalist.

Tumblr has become little more than a perpetual distraction machine to me. I’ve remained largely because of a select group of individuals with whom I interacted, but those connections for the most part are now maintained elsewhere. Whereas I once got a lot of fulfilment out of tumblr and discovered all kinds of new and wonderful things through tumblr, now I just find myself scrolling idly through the same fantasy film gifsets, butthurt tangents of all political inclinations, cute animals and seminude alt models. I’ve wasted too much time on here and I need to focus on more important things.

I think deactivating my blog would be a bit dramatic but I don’t plan on maintaining this blog any longer. Maybe something will pop up now and then (or maybe I’ll need an excuse to procrastinate and start posting again in a week). However, should my plan to cease posting succeed, anyone who is interested in maintaining contact with me elsewhere is encouraged to do so. Send me a message or whatever.
