Stablecoins in the Hot Seat: Powell Calls Bitcoin a Substitute for Gold

"There was an absolute flurry of content and commentary yesterday around the place of bitcoin. Stable coins defy and the digital asset industry as a whole vis-a-vis. Us government regulation as well as how a digital dollar might shake that all up before we get into it. Let's at the terms of the debate. One of the competitors for this cycles top fudd is the government will ban it if it gets sufficiently threatening now to be clear banning depending on your sister could mean anything from an outright ban of use in holding too forceful seizure too limiting access to on and off ramps to the more benign from a commercial standpoint but no less threatening from a privacy standpoint integration of the full crypto infrastructure into the am l. kyc. Money surveillance apparatus. I've spent some time on this show looking into global versions where this fudd seems to be playing out in particular. We've been watching the evolving situation in india and nigeria india which seems gearing up for a bill that would have some sort of outright ban although at least one finance minister says that that's not the case and nigeria. Where the central bank of nigeria. I reiterated that banks should not be working with crypto users which they've then subsequently rolled back just a little bit either way however really what everyone has been focused on is the us particularly in the context of a new administration. The last administration had friends and foes alike when it came to bitcoin and crypto trump. Famously tweeted that he did not like bitcoin or crypto. But we didn't really take that seriously as a threat because it was so clearly about zuckerberg and libra mnuchin was a much bigger enemy. Probably wrote that text for trump's tweet even and clearly wanted to tighten the reins in his final act. He was trying to require exchanges to collect more information. When users transferred crypto to their own wallets on the flip side however there was brian brooks who was absolutely revolutionary at the office of the comptroller of the currency. The changes he oversaw are a huge reason. Why so many big institutions are now playing in this space. Why so many big traditional banks feel like they have to race to catch up to allow people to offer their customers crypto services however as we know from physics every action has a reaction and to some extent one reason why observers are so keenly watching the biden administration is to see how much they're going to respond or try to walk back with brooks in the occ changed on top of that. As the biden administration has come to power the price and volume around bitcoin stable coins and the rest of the digital asset industries have made them much more on ignore -able last time joe biden was in office. Bitcoin is about four hundred and thirty bucks. Now it's been over fifty thousand dollars for sixteen days in a row tether was barely out of diapers now. It has a market supply above forty billion in his doing upwards of one hundred billion dollars in volume per day combined with us dc. And you've got over. Fifty billion dollars of usd approximates there so lot more is at stake with that. People have been watching. Two things has come in and what they're saying on the who has come inside. Janet yellen is back for another round although this time is treasury secretary rather than as he chair gary genzer to is back. Although this time is as he c- chair. Instead of cftc chair of these two there is much more optimism around gessler who has done a pretty fair bit of work to understand where the crypto industry is coming from even teaching a course at mit about bitcoin and blockchain. And of course we have someone who still around in the form. Of jay powell. The federal reserve chairman. His ex factor. And all these discussions is the potential of a central bank digital currency a digital dollar. That could potentially shift the us's relationship with these projects now in terms of what we've seen these actors say so far over the last few months up until now it's been pretty standard fare one part. There's a lot of exciting potential here. One part we have to protect investors though and one part but it's also used by criminals over the last couple of days however we've gotten both comments and news that could shift as into our next phase of understanding what the us is relationship with. Bitcoin stable coins and other digital assets is going to look going forward. So let's talk about powell speaking about cdc's and cryptos at a bank for international settlements panel yesterday. Let's talk about the announcement of digital dollar prototypes coming this summer. And let's talk about new draft fat. If guidelines around cryptocurrencies. I up powell. Did a session yesterday with leaders from the bank for international settlements including augustine carstens. We talked about last week. He was asked about crypto currencies. And whether he saw them as a threat. And here's what he said. We call them crypto assets. You know. they're they're highly volatile. See bitcoin and therefore not real useful as a store of value in there not backed by anything. They're more of an asset for speculation. So they're also not particularly in use as a means of payment. It's more speculative asset. That's it's essentially a substitute for gold rather than for the dollar. And i think with crypto acids the the the public needs to understand the risks. The principle thing is there's the volatility there's also the outsized energy requirements requirement for for mining. And the fact that they're not backed by anything so let's break out these three reasons that he wasn't particularly impressed by cryptos. I this idea of volatility or that. It's just an asset for speculation. Basically he's dismissing bitcoin and any other crypto as something that he does not have to stress about or really factor into his consideration around global monetary competition while many. Bitcoin is grabbed onto the essentially a substitute for gold piece as a great tweet and knocked to the gold bugs. Who they're trying to convert or at least undermined powell was saying this more. Like a giant shooing away. A fly gold is to him clearly. Irrelevant an unimportant antiquated part of the fiat system that he sits at the helm of in that way a substitute for that thing does not present a threat

"augustine" Discussed on 5 Minutes in Church History

"Welcome to five minutes in churches hosted by dr stephen. Nicholson where we take a little break from the presence to go exploring the past travel back in time as we look the people events and even the places that have shaped the story of christianity. This is our story. How family history. Let's get started. Agusan was installed as bishop at hippo. Regis in three ninety five just to review. He was converted back in three eighty six. He was ordained in three ninety one and he was installed as bishop in three ninety five. He was forty one years old. He would hold that post for thirty five years until his dying day in for thirty. Let's take a look first at this city where he was bishop hippo status and then at his actual church building in hippo and then a brief glimpse into his work as a bishop. Hippo just is in modern day. Algeria near the border of tunisia it sits right on the coast of the mediterranean sea. It was one of the last roman cities to fall to the vandals which it did in four thirty one. Hippo regis has everything you would come to expect from a roman city. It has temples to the roman gods which were converted to schools and christian churches. It has a forum it has theater spanning three hundred and twenty five meters. It could see thousand people and of course ruins of statues abound. There is an enormous bronze bowl. That looks like a giant trophy that commemorates julius caesar's victory in north africa in forty six bc. It had a sprawling marketplace and a very busy harbour. It appears that the east was the wealthy side of town. Ruins of large roman villas can be found there and in the city was a large basilica. Agustin's church this church was nearly half a football field long. It had a center nave in two side aisles. The floor was covered with mosaics. It had a marble apps it had wooden beams that were covered with terra. Cotta tiles for the roof. The acoustics in this building would have been exceptional between the altar and the congregation. There was a large masonry structure of about four meters by three meters and it is believed that on top of this was a wooden lectern or pulpit. The pulpit from which guston would preach at one time there was a body buried under it and many believe that this was the original burial place of augustine so we have his city. We have his church. What did he do as the bishop. Well i he preached a lot and he also presided over the service. At hippo typical service had three biblical readings one from the old testament one from the epistles and one from the gospels. Through these readings they would systematically read through the entire bible. Well after these readings there would be the singing of assam. And then would come the sermon usually but not always on one of those scriptural readings at the end of the sermon. The preacher would lead the congregation in prayer and then it all ended with a dock. Sala g of praise and then of course there would be the lord's supper so augusta and preached and he conducted services. Secondly he sat on councils and convene church councils. There were many controversies swirling around in agustin's day. The two big ones. Where that donna. Test controversy and pelagia unisom in addition to those harrison who also get involved in moral issues in church disputes. And so he was very busy working on all of those issues. And all of those controversies. He would also counsel pastors and elders presbyter 's as well as people from all walks of life including significant roman officials and he mostly did this council through a significant letter writing ministry that augusta carried on throughout his entire life. Well he also raised money one. Such person was piney. Ns and he was a very wealthy patron one of the wealthy patrons that we knew of that was a close friend of augustine. And then finally. This is a unique job as a bishop. Augusta and oversaw an straighted. This city's withstanding of the siege of the vandals will there. You haven't the ship agustin's city bishop agustin's church and bishop agustin's duties. That's our friend augusta. The bishop than i'm steve nichols.

SPACE FARCE

"Days ago. We observed the thirty fifth anniversary of the space shuttle. Challenger's bush in the killed seven brave astronauts and a chance to actually get into that. I just thought it kind of bring the room down and it would it. Would basically a habit gets reflect back on the failure that the shuttle program eventually became. I'm man i'm and it's arguable. That the shuttle missions were a failure but it just Conversations before with people who said it's the equivalent of taking a bus out of the garage. Hang around the earth a couple times. That's all it was but you know it was interesting. At least the space program had something going on at the time. And i thought it would. I even met a shuttle astronaut Good guy Just that by the time We had a conversation on a cable channel about moon landing in. I didn't like each other afterwards. And i i didn't. I didn't wanna cause trouble with him. In fact he was just an amazing astronaut. Let's astronaut my god guys space. You know pro. You know again. I look at astronauts. It's like i. I'd look at a veteran. Or i look at a soldier who fights. I mean they got more than i do. I sit studio. And gripe all the time but i just you know. I was amazed by The he was not my first astronaut. I've met a few Never met buzz aldrin or ordeal armstrong. Or anybody like that. A few shuttle astronauts. I've i've met a former nasa. Well no i interviewed chuck cernan but i was never. I interviewed him over the phone. So i i don't know i just have an affinity for space i i i love it because of course i love the topic of aliens. Ufo's avi lopburi more. We come on. Space travels amazing. I mean we'd star trek star wars. These are things. I really like And you know noticing too. I grew up in utah. Where more than fire call was twenty miles away thirty miles away from where i lived and this is where the rings were made for the space shuttle program of course the failed challenger explosion was because of the ordering problems were more than thiokol and only two failures in the whole space shuttle program where people were killed. Astronauts were killed. No real new information though. That was out there and You know and we kept being promised this was just you know the shuttle program was going to be used to not only take the bus out for a dry but it was also going to be used to go to the space station and bring astronauts food and stuff and now well for the longest time we were contracting russia. We're having a deal with russia to send astronauts to the space shuttle to the space station to well actually said food to the space as well and i thought why are we relying on russia in and this whole nonsense about how russia was our enemy and everything. They're our enemy. Why are they helping us with our space program. Just didn't make any sense. But yeah i mean looking back at our field. Space programs is important. Indicate that president. Barack obama crippled dass his efforts to send astronauts beyond low earth orbit. When obama came into office. he didn't want a number of other. Presidents have done to determine their goals for nasa. He formed a presidential commission to study the space agency and then he came up with some recommendations so he you a committee the committee. You basically. you're saying well. I think there are far more important things. We need to invest our money. And so i'm gonna cut your budget. You know basically what area. We're gonna bring you altogether. Cut your budget. So you're going to have to deal with you know whatever that's all it's been cutting budget and budget cutting and and And so that's why you have now space x that's why you have You know these other companies visas and others who want to do space because you know space has been neglected. The budgets have been neglected in our government for some time but we had a lot of conservative presidents like george w bush and of course donald trump. Who said yeah. We're all the speech program. Let's get it going. And the reason why is because there's brooke obama once said and this is one of the reasons why he basically said no to you know exorbitant budgets for space. He says well. You know spaces. In america. First issue. And we should be more universal. We she wore. We wore worldly with our concepts in our conquest of space. We need to do you know we didn't do it all together as a world. It's a it's a world bring people together in a world government or world philosophy. I think reagan kinda hinted to what he said. You know our differences worldwide would vanish. We were facing an alien threat from outside of this world but that was an alien threat. That was the idea that if there were aliens out there wanting to eat us then we would certainly band together as a group. I mean that's what independence day was all about right. See the independence day. Movie or armageddon were nasa saves the day. You know it's time and time again. We get told it. Our space program is amazing. Well yeah they do amazing things. But it's not as amazing as it used to be. I mean lockheed. Martin ceo norm augustine Headed up the augustine commission during the obama administration actually was named after maga sanofi headed up with the. It's called the augustine commission and basically they returned with a set of recommendations after few wants convening during the obama administration so the commission found the program then in existence project constellation was not execute under any reasonable

This is our story. How family history. Let's get started. Well after agustin's conversion he resigned his post as teacher of rhetoric in milan and he left for several months to villa in the area of lake como right at the foot of the alps. You should look it up. It's a beautiful place and here augusta his first books as a christian he was writing books since three eighty all of those early books is pre conversion books are lost to us but now and three eighty six. He began a whole new writing career. I a quick word on his writing he would dictate to notetaker who used a system of note taking called tirrenia nets that this was named for tullus. Tirico he was the scribe for cicero. And these ian or shorthand notes would then be written out into longhand and they would be edited and they would become a book. There were not commercial publishers in those days but there were networks of scribes networks of scholars and friends. And you would make a few copies of a book and you would distribute it to these associates to these friends and they would make more copies and then from those copies would come even more copies and it was just a case of supply and demand and there was a great demand for books from augusta and there was a steady supply. But were these first books that augustine wrote as a christian. What were they all about. We called them dialogues. They were recorded conversations that he was having with himself there at this beautiful place in lake como. He would personify this dialogue with reason. And so it was augusta. And reason having these dialogues of course. He was drawing on this genre of the dialogue from that. Great greek philosopher. Plato and these dialogues covered such topics as truth and the immortality of the soul and unhappiness in in them we see the themes that will come to dominate agustin's teaching. He was after all a teacher and so he taught first of all the nobility the value for the pursuit of truth. Let's not be satisfied with lies and falsehood in mere shadows but let's pursue and pursue it relentlessly the truth. Secondly he helped us understand the relationship between faith and reason too often reason is jettisoned. Combatant of faith will not so argued augustine. God created us with a mind. He created this world as a rational world. Any wants us. God wants us to use a reason to know him. And so faith and reason and guston had a wonderful way of talking about the relationship of those two and then finally augusta taught us that all everything begins and ends in god this world our very lives all of our efforts human history truth wisdom happiness. All of this is found in god. He is the beginning. He arches over every moment and aspect and god is the end. He is the and the omega. In fact in one of these early dialogues. This is what augustine tells us. Oh god the truth in by and through whom all truths are true. Oh god the wisdom in by and through whom all our wise who are wise the true and perfect life in by and through whom all live who are truly imperfectly. Alive in you. God the be attitude that is to say god happiness in by and through whom all are blessed and are blessed the good and the beautiful in by in through whom all good and beautiful things have these qualities god is the beginning.

Biden signs 30 executive orders first few days in office

"So Joe Biden walks into the Oval Office for the first time and sits down and, in essence, signs 17 executive orders with more to come, and they range from everything to rejoining the Paris climate agreement. Extending the moratorium on evictions and foreclosures. This is all about undoing the trump presidency. To what extent can that be accomplished by executive order? Well, there are things you really can do. I mean, it's it's quite remarkable. The degree to which he is able. This is the nature of our system to walk in. And with the stroke of a pen, you really can undo the Muslim ban. Now you can't undo the damage it has caused of the last four years. But there's a reason why he believes this. What some people are calling shock and awe approach to doing it is important. It's sending a message. To the public. That these things are not permanent. But what I think is interesting is when you talk to You talk to the people who are sort of plotting the legislative approach. What they say is there's basically two steps. There's the rescue. And then there's the recovery. The rescue is what you have to do immediately like getting vaccines out like imposing a mandatory mask policy on federal property and interstate travel. And then there's the hard thing. That's exactly the hard thing is big legislation, isn't it? And that demands encountering someone named Mitch McConnell? We've heard for years about Joe Biden's belief in In politics in the way that Barack Obama found distasteful. Remember Barack Obama saying? You go get a drink with Mitch McConnell. Joe Biden seems to thrive on that stuff. Is he deluded? How far going to get Well, he and Mitch McConnell have a relationship in that you know, it is. It is worth both identifying and then identifying the limits of it. It's worth mentioning that Mitch McConnell was the only Republican senator after all, who attended Funeral for Beau Biden in 2015. These two have a very long history. And one thing I'm hearing is that they are in fact, talking quite a bit. They have been in recent weeks now. None of that means that Mitch McConnell is gonna wake up tomorrow and suddenly be a compliant, enthusiastic Promoter of the Democratic Party's interests, But what it means is that there is a basis for communication and a basis for some calculation of the interests of both sides. And that is the core of what Biden basically believes about politics in 18 61. Abraham Lincoln comes forth. It gives his first inaugural address and it's addressed largely to the South, and it's an appeal for unity for the country to stay together the union to stay together. It's an amazing piece of rhetoric. But it failed. Who does Biden have to reach to keep this country from going mad from from becoming so disunited that it becomes non functional. Well, I have to tell you, David, you know that 18 61 address was very much on my mind as I was listening. Abiding. I mean, he summoned as you remember the words of ST Augustine, he said. People are defined as a multitude defined by the common objects of their love. And when I heard that I thought of Lincoln saying, of course, that he was appealing to Americans Bonds of affection as he put it there mystic chords of memory. And six weeks later, the civil War began. So this this fragile notion of coherence of national unity is It's a risky bet, and there's I think the temptation is to assume. Well, well. Biden needs to Somehow reach the people who have been lost to politics. You know, folks who have the kinds of people who are drifting further and further from From, I mean reality to be blunt about it. I think there's another view of this question of the pursuit of unity. And I had a really interesting interview in the days before the inauguration with Reverend William Barber, who is Civil rights leader. He's the co chair of the poor People's campaign. And he's been talking to Biden often on for months, actually, because They both believe in this idea of unity. But Barber is is fairly hard boiled about it. And what he said was look, the Constitution does not call for domestic tranquility. It calls for justice and what that means is that in order to achieve real unity That means you have to attack some of the underlying problems in society, and that may cause you more political disunity in the short

The gas was two thousand feet above sea level. It was surrounded by mountains that were another thousand feet or so and it was a very fertile plain. In fact the most fertile land in north africa it was a great place to settle and farm. Corn olives were mostly harvested and had a great economy one.

It was bustling with people and trade. It was second city only to rome and sixty miles or so to the northwest hippo regis. That city would come to play a significant role in the life of augustine. Near the end. Agustin's father was patricia. S a roman pagan. His mother was monica and devout and sometimes mystical christian much much more on her later as our book unfolds. Augustine had siblings. But we know very little about them he had at least one brother navigate. Send at least one sister and he likely had more brothers and sisters.

He would answer with one word. I wanna be famous. And he thought that the fame he desired would be all about him that he would be at the very center of this.

Nicholson where we take a little break from the presence to go exploring the past travel back in time as we look the people events and even the places that have shaped the story of christianity. This is our story. family history. Let's get started for some time. Now i've had the habit of starting a new year by focusing in on a theologian and actually spending the whole year with that theologian. Just getting to know them and read them and read about them all this year. Twenty twenty one as we all start this new year together. I'm going with augusta. And as i do. I'll be working on a biography. And what i want to do is work on the book with you. So we will spend the next eight weeks or so walking through his life and each week. I'll be walking through a chapter of this book that i'm working on with you but to begin. Let's go big picture when you want to write a book. Publisher asks you for a proposal and a key. Part of that proposal is for you to answer the why question why this book would so compelling about your idea what you want to do that it should be published. So let's start there. Why augusta i look at his life. Well i can think of five reasons i. He was a wanderer. Augusta was from namibia. The root of that word is no mad. These were nomads. and agustin's life is so annoying because he personifies the life of all of us. We are all wanderers. Nomads traveling east of eden. Trying to find our way home as you explore. Agustin's life you find. He's a wander and such cool places. Carthage rome milan. And he's a metaphorically a wanderer to juan during from the fold of he's lost sheep. Augustine was a wander. He was also a teacher. The oldest portrait of augusta's a fresco dating to the five hundred's friscos are made by applying watercolors too wet plaster and has the plaster dries. It absorbs that color and preserves it for centuries so we have augusta wearing the robe. The scholar seated on a prominent chair holding an open book. And he's looking right at you looking right at the viewer. As if he's about to say something as if he's about to start class and with augusta it was always a master class. He was the teacher. he's writer he knew what to do. With words with sentences he was communicator. This was his profession. Before his conversion he was a teacher of rhetoric. He was compelling. He draws you in. I read augusta. Sometimes and i feel myself sitting on the edge of my chair just waiting for what comes next. We all remember that opening line. Don't we from the confessions there in the very first paragraph that god has made us for himself. Augusta says you. God you majestic great one. You made us for yourself and our hearts are restless. They find their rest in. You will fourthly. What does he teach. And what does he write about the answer. Grace agustin's life was embroiled in theological controversy and conflict and conflict and controversy centered around grace. In fact we call the position that emerged from all that debate augustinian ism the augustinian position. Stresses god's grace. God's doing god's work god's power in our life and fifthly lastly. Agustin's life illustrates a very important life. Lesson nothing in our lives gets wasted point in the confessions. Augustine writes this. You use all whether we know it or not for purpose which is known to you. It's the all that i want to focus on all the ups and downs all the two steps backward and merely one step forward moments of our lives our so called mistakes. None of it is wasted. All of it is part of god's tapestry all of it is part of god's purpose for life so there's my proposal five reasons why augustine will occupy five minutes in church history as we move through the winter of twenty twenty one. That's my plan. And i hope you come along. I'm steve nichols. Thanks for joining him for five minutes in church history for more information or to listen to past episodes..

How Would Augustine Read Genesis? with Dr. Benjamin Quinn

"GONNA it I'M GONNA go fast and I and fly high. So Augusta Guston when he's converted around the year three, eighty six and he's about he's in his early thirties by this point the very first commentary that he turns to ride is actually one on genesis and he does so against a group of people called the mannequins that he'd. been a part of for a little over a decade and very quickly after coming to Christ he sees the manatees not as not as reputation or not as personal enemies, per se but theologically, they really were enemies because they undo. So much of what's true and rich and good in Christ centred about the scriptures and especially in this directly begins to answer your question especially as it relates to the doctrine of creation. So over Agustin's lifetime first of all, there's development in his thoughts and there's a development and how he approached his genesis one through eleven genesis one through three specifically about five different times he addresses it the very first time. If you look at that early commentary, just a couple a couple of years after he's converted to be honest it's kind of weird he does all kind of crazy allegorical stuff he's. He's really pushing back against some extremities of Manichean thaw. By the time you get to his much more mature though in this comes about the you know the works that Augustine most popular for Confessions City of God on the Trinity on Chris Easing, these kind of what we would call his mature works by the time he looks at Genesis one. Through eleven at that point here are some of the the. Distinctive of his interpretation that you're gonNA notice first of all he's going to be very clear on a very healthy doctrine of creation. What I mean by that is he's not going to see something like the spirit world bad in the mid or the material world is bad spirit world is good. He's GonNa work really really hard to push against that. There remains some measure of a spiritual side may be. Better than the material saw and whether that's true or not. Another point is still be some of that but he's going to always remember that sort of bad ten years of Manichean life that he experienced and when he returns to genesis one through eleven, it's always gonna be sort of in back of his mind and who he's arguing with so to speak. Yeah, secondly, he's also going to always be deeply. Christ centered. As shouldn't surprise us. But maybe for some of your ears when they hear the word Christ centered in terms of interpretation or they may think about ten years old and I want to say, no, that's about I. Don't Know Nineteen Hundred Years old somewhere somewhere in there. And Augusta and when he's turning to any part of scripture. But especially, the Old Testament Psalms particular genesis one through eleven he's going to see in the beginning in fact right there he's GonNa Circle that in his Latin tax going to say that in that beginning the way that his text reads there's Jesus Right. There's the same beginning John's talking about the same beginning to Colossians, one is referring to that's Jesus there in fact his. Commentaries are summarized. He called him the Toda's Chris because he saw the whole Christ there and that's true. Really of his interpretation of all the Old Testament. The third thing I would say on that Kyle is my favorite part of that I've learned from Augusta. My favorite part is that he always interprets scripture with what he calls the double love in mind. This is nothing more than the great commandment He has in his little book on her midday. Scott on Christian, teaching our on on Christian doctrine. He says any interpretation of scripture that doesn't undergird love for God and love for neighbor is an invalid interpretation. Period. Now. There's a lot. There's a lot of questions. There's a lot to be said that's not the end of the conversation, but I always hear that as if Jesus is right that there's nothing if he is because he's Jesus if if he's right that there's nothing more important about living in his world. Then to love God, and to love other people, the net applies to everything in life including how we interpret the Bible, not just how we parent and how we pass through and how we were all the those things too that even how we interpret the Bible Jesus you said all along the prophets point to me. So when you go back to those also recognize the most important thing about living in my world is that you love on love of people. So if you've if you draw from any interpretation of scripture something that you can't draw straight lines to love forgotten left for the people you've you somehow fallen off the radar, you've. Fallen off the wagon. So to speak and always been sort of guides and directs is not only interpretation but then application scripture. Yeah. Man That's so

How Have Hispanic Americans Helped Shape the U.S.?

"Brain Steph Lauryn Boban here. Here in the United States, it's Hispanic heritage month, which officially began as Hispanic Heritage Week in nineteen, sixty eight. Unlike many other campaigns that observe and honor the contributions of a particular group of Americans Hispanic heritage bump run throughout. September. But rather starts on September fifteenth and continues through mid. October. So, why does it start in the middle of the month? Well, a Costa Rica El Salvador Guatemala Honduras. Nicaragua. All celebrate their Independence Day on September fifteenth. Mexico's is on September Sixteenth Chili's is September eighteenth and believes independence. Day Is September twenty first. By, stretching into October, the holiday also includes de la Raza on October twelve, which is a kind of rejection of Columbus Day because of Christopher, Columbus's many crimes against humanity and see our episode on Columbus Day for more about that. De la Rosa instead celebrates the melding of Hispanic races or Raza, and cultures. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, let's talk about three times at Hispanic Americans have changed the course of history. Some three hundred years after Spanish, conquerors became the first non native Americans to view the Mississippi River and later the Grand Canyon one host. Jeff Marianne Hernandez helps smooth transfer of the territory of Florida into US rule Florida was still part of Spain when Hernandez was born in Saint Augustine in seventeen eighty four. But that changed when he was selected to serve in the House of Representatives and was sworn into duty in eighteen, twenty three as the first Hispanic person to serve in. Congress. In historical context Hernandez being a slave owner is a controversial figure. Still. He remains the first one, hundred twenty eight Hispanic people to serve in the. US Congress. Maybe of more relevance today is the first Hispanic senator elected to a full term in Congress. New Mexico's Dennis Shabas in nineteen thirty five. We spoke with Paul Orbits Historian at the University of Florida. He said in addition to being the first American born Hispanic senator. He's critical for the time we live in because he fought on behalf of all working class. Equally, he fought for higher wages legislation he fought for people to have the right to organize a union he fought for more progress and you as foreign policy for Latin America he organized N. Double ACP leaders against Jim Crow Segregation. Then, a Chevette as one of those people we can use Hispanic heritage month to talk about our connection other people's democratic struggles. Today's Congress. The one hundred sixteenth has forty seven members of Hispanic heritage. Hispanic Americans also helped turn the tide of the civil war. Some twenty thousand were involved in the conflict. While some in the southeast sided with the confederacy especially those who came from wealthy families with plantations or other businesses in Louisiana Alabama more supported the union. or it said a lot of Mexican American soldiers fought on the side of the Union army in the southwest and actually helped defeat the confederacy in the southwest. Hispanic people in the West back the Mexican government to and celebrated the country's defeat of the French at the battle of Puebla on May fifth of sixty two single Demayo in a victory that may have helped prevent the French from siding with the confederacy and thus ultimately helping the Union win. A bit more modern only about eight years before the US Supreme Court ruled in Brown versus the Board of Education, that segregation in public schools is unconstitutional as Spanish schoolgirl showed the way. Sylvia Mendez a Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage was just eight years old when she and her brothers were denied enrollment into the white only Westminster School district in Orange County in nineteen, forty three. At the time about eighty percent of California, school districts were segregated. Her Parents Gonzalo. Felicitas Mendez enlisted other parents to fight the decision and they took the school board to court. After appeals that were abandoned short of the US Supreme Court Mendez Versus Westminster became the first successful federal school desegregation case in the nation that was in nineteen, forty seven. The case was important arguing that segregation itself even if schools were separate but equal was harmful unconstitutional under the fourteenth amendment specifically, the clause, the calls for protection of the laws for all citizens. In appeals Sylvia's case was argued by Thurgood Marshall who went on to argue for the

"augustine" Discussed on 5 Minutes in Church History

"Welcome to five minutes in churches hosted by Dr. Stephen Nicholson where we take a little break from the presence to go exploring the past travel back in time as we look the people events and even the places that have shaped the story of Christianity. This is our story family history. Let's get started. In three eighty, nine Augustine Co wrote a book called it the teacher. The title comes from a Text Matthew Chapter Twenty three verse. Ten. which reads for you have one instructor or one teacher. Christ. Augusta and said, this book discusses and inquires and discovers that there is no teacher who teaches men knowledge accept God. As, written in the Gospel and he quotes Matthew Chapter Twenty, three ten of course that is very significant the title of the Book and where it came from it's also significant that this book was written in three eighty nine. It was just three years after Agustin's conversion you remember his story, he leaves Hippo there north. Africa goes up to Rome goes to Milan is literally running away from God like Jona or the Prodigal son. But God catches him. In fact, God has been directing him and directing every step of his path straight to him and in three eighty, six in. Milan. He was converted and three, eighty eight he leaves Rome, and heads back to Carthage, and then onto the gassed and hippo in North Africa, and there he will serve for the rest of his life as bishop. But this is in three, eighty nine. It is early in his Christian time. So the title is significant the date is significant but what is really significant is that Augusta had a CO author for this book and this was not just any CO author. It was a teenager sixteen year old came along to help Augusta and write this book. And was not does any sixteen year old? It was his son at data's the teacher is a dialogue, a dialogue between father and son the father. Augusta and the Sun Addio data's his son's name literally means a gift from God dot to means Gift Day Oh of course God and awe is the preposition that means from.

Augustines Teenage Coauthor

"In three eighty, nine Augustine Co wrote a book called it the teacher. The title comes from a Text Matthew Chapter Twenty three verse. Ten. which reads for you have one instructor or one teacher. Christ. Augusta and said, this book discusses and inquires and discovers that there is no teacher who teaches men knowledge accept God. As, written in the Gospel and he quotes Matthew Chapter Twenty, three ten of course that is very significant the title of the Book and where it came from it's also significant that this book was written in three eighty nine. It was just three years after Agustin's conversion you remember his story, he leaves Hippo there north. Africa goes up to Rome goes to Milan is literally running away from God like Jona or the Prodigal son. But God catches him. In fact, God has been directing him and directing every step of his path straight to him and in three eighty, six in. Milan. He was converted and three, eighty eight he leaves Rome, and heads back to Carthage, and then onto the gassed and hippo in North Africa, and there he will serve for the rest of his life as bishop. But this is in three, eighty nine. It is early in his Christian time. So the title is significant the date is significant but what is really significant is that Augusta had a CO author for this book and this was not just any CO author. It was a teenager sixteen year old came along to help Augusta and write this book. And was not does any sixteen year old? It was his son at data's the teacher is a dialogue, a dialogue between father and son the father. Augusta and the Sun Addio data's his son's name literally means a gift from God dot to means Gift Day Oh of course God and awe is the preposition that means from. He too was converted right at the same time Augustine was, and they were also baptized by Ambrose there in Milan and audio Dada was baptized as he was turning fifteen he went with his father back to Carthage, and then in three eighty nine, they wrote this book together in the confessions.

"We've entered upon the season of lent. I hope you all had blessed Ash. Wednesday. We'RE GOING TO BE HEARING TO lenten sermons from Saint Augustine his sermons two. Oh five and two eleven respectively. These sermons were originally given by Augusta at the beginning of lent. So it's an appropriate way for us now to begin the season. Here on this podcast. The first sermon is very brief but packed with good stuff. Augustine reminds us that mortification and self denial ought always be a way of life for the Christian but all the more so during these days of lent as such we ought not only to abstain from that which is harmful but also an even especially from that which is lawful as a way of rendering sacrifice to God gusting warns. Against using our fasting or abstaining from one kind of pleasure as pretense to seek out of their luxuries and he exhorts us not to nail others to our cross so to speak by being ill-tempered while fasting. You know despite the fact of his having given the sermon many centuries ago I feel like Augusta has really got my number here. He ends the first sermon. Emphasizing forgiveness forgive and you shall be forgiven so appropriately with the second sermon. Augustine takes up the subject of forgiveness and preaches on it more comprehensively he tackles it seemingly from every angle. Are you unwilling to forgive? Your neighbor is your neighbor unwilling to forgive. You are either you or your neighbor unwilling to ask to be forgiven. There's something here for everyone. I'll note that Augusta. Even considered circumstances wherein to apologize itself might not be entirely appropriate the example he gives of Master and servant might cause some of us to Bristle but his insistence that both are servants to the same divine master is itself the radical proposition. So although Augustine evokes a case of inequality that's particularly repugnant to us today. Inequalities will always be with us and the Prudential Judgment Augusta advises is therefore able to be applied in more than one kind of circumstance. I find this second sermon especially challenging and for that reason all the more worth attending to at the outset of this penitential season..

"For the first time in this audio book series but certainly not the last. We'll be hearing from a church. Father and Dr after who needs no introduction. Saint Augustine of Hippo. It's our hope to release in time. A number of his sermons in fact staying with our New Year theme. We had intended to lead with sermon of his given on New Year's Day. But seeing how it is also the month of January Agustin's letter to Januarius seemed aimed impossible to pass up also known as letter fifty four Agustin's letter Januarius was written in response to a question posed by Januarius a previous letter. The question as Augusta recounts in the letter was of a liturgical concern. That is at what time of day should the holy sacrifice on Holy Holy Thursday be celebrated what follows is a delightful little letter sometimes humorous and even containing anecdote wherein Augusta and describes having once acted as a sort of spiritual direction intermediary between his mother and Saint Ambrose Mutt. The letter also contains a clear affirmation of the twofold authority of scripture picture and tradition as well as a careful articulation of the distinction. Between that which is essential to the faith and that which is not not to mention. It's a fascinating peek at some some of the more procedural of the early Church's disputes for such a short letter. There's a lot to enjoy. And perhaps for some of us a humbling reminder under that disagreements regarding accidental aspects to liturgy are as old as the church itself.
