Re-watching #AvengersEndgame. The #MCU made a lot of fantastic story decisions... but the gutting of #BlackWidow’s character over the course of a few movies is indefensible.
And her fate in Endgame is mind-bogglingly dumb. And largely unnecessary.
In terms of story, Black Widow is one of the most important characters in the #MCU. She does so much heavy lifting, from exposition to emotional stakes.

If you like #TheMandalorian and what @dave_filoni and @Jon_Favreau did... check out the #CloneWars animated series. The whole series is good, but the FINAL season is 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥😭😭😭😭😭😭
My favorite part of the series was the Anakin development. The animated series shows why everyone revered him but slowly amplified his dark side tendencies.
Animated Anakin is swaggering and charismatic but still temperamental and frustrating.

You feel why he’s The Chosen One and why the Jedi are hesitant to fully believe.

The magnitude of suffering MANY MANY families are experiencing right now is just overwhelming.
Buffering = when videos pause because they haven’t fully loaded yet. My grief is buffering right now.

The burden of pain, for myself, for my people and for everyone really, is so substantial that it’s stuck. It can’t process.
And I feel a creeping dread. Because I know the video has to keep playing sometime. And I don’t want to experience a lot of what is next. Heavy.

Idolatry isn’t just about what you love, it’s about what you hate. When you organize your life around something you despise, you elevate that idol to a level of counter-worship. Instead of trying to please the idol, you make offerings to harm it.
In a Christian context, idolatry is about elevating anything or anyone beyond their actual value. When you care too much, give too much, obsess too much or fear too much, that’s an object of worship. Or in this case, counter-worship.
You don’t have to consider it at the same level as God for something to be an idol. It just has to take an outsized portion of your resources: time, energy, money, focus, creativity...

Oppression ALWAYS has a beneficiary.
There is no such thing as accidental oppression. It doesn’t just materialize out of thin air. Oppression is zero-sum. Some are made to lose so others are able to gain.
This is part of why oppression is so offensive to God. God is infinite and so is His justice. Justice is not zero sum. There is enough for all.

PSA: You can love Jesus, be an incredibly devoted follower and see a counselor or therapist (in fact, you should).

You can bear the fruit of the Spirit in your life and take meds for mental health issues like anxiety and depression. #MentalHealthMatters
One of the most damaging lies perpetuated by the Church is that mental health issues, diagnosed or undiagnosed, come from a lack of faith.
Here’s the thing: prayer and other spiritual disciplines are critical to mental and emotional and spiritual health. But they aren’t the only tools.
