thanksgiving!

Just a quick Thanksgiving post! One of the things I’m thankful for today is having a thoughtful and support online community with which to share experiences and perspectives. Here are some of the bloggers/blogs that help create that kind of community for me:

Prairie Nymph - Prairie writes about leaving fundamentalist Christianity. I especially love her posts on gender ideologies in fundamentalism, and her thoughts on parenting and family life from a post-Christian perspective.

somaticstrength - on being a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and rape in a fundamentalist Christian family.

Gender NOS - Max isn’t currently blogging much, but he does tweet a lot (his twitter name is at the link provided). He’s thoughtful and wonderful and one of my favorite people.

Dianna Anderson - examining evangelical Christianity from a feminist evangelical perspective.

And a couple new/new-to-me blogs:

I Kissed Reality Goodbye - Jeremy just started a blog looking at the damage done by Joshua Harris’ I Kissed Dating Goodbye and similar teachings pushing “courtship” or “biblical dating” on Christian singles.

Natalie’s Narrative - Natalie’s blog in her own words: “deconstructing the dominant narrative in the context of gender, race, nationality, politics, evangelicalism, poverty, consumerism, pro-peace efforts, human origins, and much more…” I just found her blog a few days ago when she linked to AWH, and I’m looking forward to reading more of it.

Do check some of these great blogs out! Hope all US folks reading had a pleasant thanksgiving day, or at least space to detox from the stresses and triggers that the holidays can bring.
