Hi it was nice meeting all of you today. I have 5 parts of the deconversion story online, I have one more to go. This is the first video and you can link to the others from there. I've been treating this as an art project because it is so difficult to express what it is like to go through this, I hope this can connect with you in some way.

PS - if you only want to watch one of them, part 3 talks the most about what actually caused the deconversion

Hi, Eli!

I watched your first video and really liked it. I thought it was touching and had great examples and narrative. I'm looking forward to watching the rest of the series.

I'm really glad you came yesterday and shared your concern for children and Christian dogma. I've thought a lot about how religion can steal a child's independence and identity right out from under them, and that's baggage they will likely struggle with for a lifetime. I was fortunate enough never to have to deal with that as a kid, but I know how important those years are both for kids themselves and the adults they grow up to become.

Did you have any suggestions for activities, readings, or discussions related to this for our group?

I made a video this fall. It is long and gnarly but also hopefully artistic and compelling. It is a conclusion to a series on why I am no longer a Christian, but I think it says what it needs to as a stand-alone video.
