Religion Outside The Box
The quality of being Spiritual + Religious
Without the baggage
RELIGION OUTSIDE THE BOX
A different way of thinking about religion.
Empowering you to be the authority of and to have agency over your spiritualigious live.
A community of Jews, non-Jews, Catholics, ex-Mormons, a bunch of Canadians, and occasional friend in Africa, Europe, & New Zealand who feel dissatisfied with or somewhat chaffed by organized religion.
Using the G.O.D. word to refer to (the) God (of your understanding). Nothing more. Nothing less.
Few answers. Many questions.
A worldwide, internet-based congregation of over 1,000’s of members seeking spiritualigious provisions without the baggage of mono-dox affiliation.
rB grew up on the very small island of Manhattan where they were brought up exceedingly rational — never believing in God in any traditional way.
But, asking the question why led them to rabbinical school and subsequently to work as a congregational rabbi.
Dissatisfied with the limits of organized religion (and the noxious feeling he was being paid to promote only one path) rB became a high school mathematics teacher, where they learned the importance of patience, positivity, compassion, and having someone believe in you. (All the things they thought religion was supposed to be about.)
Incorporating these lessons with wicked amounts of honesty, Rabbi Brian started a blog The 77% Weekly Newsletter — helping thousand of readers, 40/52 weeks a year to prioritize their spiritualigious lives.
They enjoy writing books, articles, and small bios, making stained glass lamps, and gaining mastery on the French horn. They live in Portland, Oregon and are thinking a lot about pronouns these days.
