religion is one of those places where we just can't damn have nice things. submission to service; radical love; forgiveness; mercy; grace. oneness. we're all headed somewhere--probably escaping as heat from our dead tissues--but, whatever it is we're doing, it gives meaning and gets done better when we do it together. Religion in times of lesser hysteria on a community level provides the safe space for those things to happen oftentimes being the only acceptable place to be vulnerable or get support during hard times. i think it was emotionally needful in my hometown for the miners to have a place to deal with their insides and a designated day to spend time with the reasons they were working so hard.

it's disappointing and in no way surprising we can't have these nice things stay nice.
