I’ll keep things short and sweet this week because I want you all to direct your energy toward reading the long BuzzFeed News article below. It dives into a much talked about but little understood faith community based north of San Francisco. The article filled a hole in my heart created by “The Road to Jonestown.” (I have a thing for strange religious movements linked to California, apparently.)

Also be sure to watch the fun video in my Reformation article! The 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s 95 theses (Oct. 31) is approaching quickly, so you should prepare yourself for my ongoing coverage. Or at least come to terms with your Reformation-related confusion like the people in the video.
