Note: excessive use of the word “spiritual” sometimes makes RantWoman sneeze, violently, with noises that start to sound like “theologically insipid!”
[--Yes, RantWoman, and this may be the state of YOUR Meeting but it may or may not reflect the state of the drafters’ Meeting. Come on. Support. Encourage!
--Yeah. There is that part about the soft bigotry of low expectations and eldering as a path to draw out people’s better selves…
Anyway, RantWoman has various translation and code-switch reflexes that SOMETIMES kick in. For this season, luckily out popped some queries aimed at helping this year’s drafters overcome numerous other allergy-provoking points.
How are we called to walk along side each other in our various struggles?
What does walk along side each other mean anyway?
What are some of the circumstances trying our souls?
What blessings do we need to enumerate?
The time is upon us again to reflect on the State of Society in RantWoman’s meeting.
FOURTEEN uses of the word “spiritual?” Fourteen? Holy Theologicallly insipid Batman! Fourteen! Whatever is a RantWoman to do?
RantWoman’s first instinct: take every sentence containing the word “spiritual,” Google translate the sentence into some random language, choose one of the suggestions at random, back translate to English and see what comes out.
One problem with this idea: some sentences contain the word spiritual more than once.
Okay, how about those code-switch reflexes?
RantWoman does better with specifics.
Show me, don’t just tell me.
There. Now RantWoman will return to “Jesus is dead and you expect me to WORK?” mode. #GoodFriday
