"If they're hot or tired or uncomfortable it's exactly how they should be. My kids like ventured gas. Most of our kid has lights are way too comfortable and so when my kids are out of that comfort zone. They're doing things that they don't wanna do. Not in a bad way but like in a. I don't know them. Well exactly. that's what you're going to include that start drawing with the kids you're hungry. We're not scrape. Everyone else is actually gonna eat before us because they haven't eaten all day and you have. Oh you're will guess what the family we go to all the time. Every week has no air conditioning. They never get a reprieve. I'm actually glad you're hot. You don't like so. I actually invite discomfort. I because that is where they change. And you're teaching them to at the same time right. And if it's his co. you're drying it's nice and cool and there's fruit drinks they leave and they're like oh it was fun. I'm like i feel like i want you. Ching i want you out of your comfort zone. I want you talking to people in biting people helping when you're tired and then i would say after that that's always looking for and the second thing is coming back if great show of wants to the food bank but have you go back. Yeah and if you go back and to come into these situations maybe it's Serving food on sunday mornings we love to go to fill the pot with the baptist ministry and the best part about going is that we go back and those same people are still there. We go back for air home. We come back in for my kids. Snow this problem. These people with all of these things going on doesn't disappear. Go back to our nice comfortable home. They are still endurance every day. And having not in your heart no. This is going on constantly. It doesn't go away when we go away. Yeah so tell me about your relationship with some of these women and how they've changed you. I know you've talked about that a lot. And the impact they've had on your heart and the way you mother and all of those things. Tell me about some of those relationships. I'd love to hear more about that. yes i think. Motherhood in the united states and maybe in our culture who were around we assign these different responsibilities and expectations. And then you meet these women. You are just trying to survive with their children and you realize what routers you know. Do all the activities matter do all that stress stopping. I like i will be is even tonight at my kids friday night. What should we do entertain. Our kids are reading on the pool. Are we going to go about south site. That's like it's about showing up and loving your kids it's about really basic tendencies a In these women these women are often in all say the ones dealing with are in crisis most of their barely getting by her mental health is definitely really tricky and sometimes they're not in a good place but i will tell you it's a resilient yeah. It teaches me a lot about kids to that one of the families. I with right now. The parents both were there double shifts. They're never home. There's no air conditioning and apartment. There's very little food. Those kids have been going to summer school. They have been going to summer school like am. I look at like as what i'm doing as a mother. Would my kids be going to summer school. I don't know that they on their own. And you realize not through trials through crisis through hard times. It doesn't make them lesson as a mother. sometimes i'm just trying to buy instills. These amazing grit and termination and goals at his. Kids may not have on their own now on the other hand. I had a bunch of kids who were playing video games. All day couldn't get them to go to school. The mother was in tears. And so it's just it's it's. He's all different ways of life in it. Just my way of mothering is not the right way. Her motherhood is just as important. And and what motherhood is as mine is and i think sometimes we seeing we've had tunnel vision of what it is and so it just opened me up to love women to understand that women. A lot of women are suffering especially. I worked a lot. Going through domestic violence and women have stood up to abusers last their community. When you've come from africa and if you leave your husband your entire community will shun you. Even if he's been the strength that these women have to go at it alone with five kids with six kids. it's incredible. They are strong even though they struggle. They have this inner strength. That is it's absolutely inspiring to me. And i don't know that we could have that not going through some of the things that they've gone through so it's it's sounds hiring all the time and you've talked about in your instagram post. You talk about how these women like they really become true friends and how you have these deep relationships with them and you invite them into your home and how do you go from being a volunteer to being you kind of mentioned that too with your friends you set up christmases with these seven women and then you said you've got stay in you gotta keep coming around so i mean i'm trying to think of the volunteer situations that i've been in and what i could have done to bridge that gap because of course i care and i want to build relationships but i think sometimes it's kind of like where do you even make that for steph. How do you go from meeting someone that you're serving food to to like actually showing up to their apartment and knowing their kids are having their kids. Come to your house. Where does that connection happen. That's a really great question. It's not gonna happen at an event or a group thing like a bank or even feeding the home or anything like that it would be more to mentor type program so if you are interested or not and i would mentors can change families showing up to events feeding. I i do a lot. Bandaids i do a lot of it. I'm not seeing as the media. He need help clothes all of that but to truly change Bacteria have a family's life. It's a mentor. And so you can reach out to boys and girls clubs. You can reach out to home. Shelters reach out to family shelters. Wherever you live you could definitely look up mentor programs near me. They are all over the place but it is. It's especially with refugees and people. In crisis situations trust is a major major stumbling block in forming a friendship with them. And so you will go. Men most likely will go many many months without a lot coming back from them. And so it's showing showing up at their apartment. They don't answer the calls. They don't answer the phone that you show up again and the new show up again. And then they start. I remember my amina. Suppose your might only speak really very good english. Your might christina seen as only me your only friend in utah. And it's because i showed up. And i showed up again in. I told him i'd be there next friday. I actually came and they started to believe me. And you didn't just give up after one time. I even after two years. It'd be so easy to give up. I was put in very tricky situations where it actually gave me quite a bit of anxiety because it was out of my take. I did not know it help a suicidal fourteen year old..

"2020 to say it with me now, that's not happening. He resigned from that position. The General Baptists believe that every woman was created in the image of God, and they should be valued for that reason. Furthermore, we believe that all individuals, regardless of any other factors are so loved by God that Christ died for them. Each General Baptist Church has autonomy from the National organization, and as a result, General Baptist Ministry does not have authority related to the employment of any pastor or church leader in a local congregation. End of post read that if we could we fire him, but we can't so we're leaving it to the local church. Needless to say, um he's on leave. The newspaper in Kansas city dot com. They say that Clark's wife Um okay. She was a little heavy, but then she went to weight watchers. Guess where The pastor is now going. He is headed to counseling. And again, this is just one way. I'm not sure I would use this as an example of how to celebrate International Women's Day. All I'm saying is that sometimes you have to choose your words much more carefully than Pastor Stuart.

"Of different sites that carry countless numbers of his Bible teaching you will profit by anything you listen to but I'm going to share with you some of his writing on the Holy Spirit. I'm going to begin in chapter one and just read a few pages to you about John. The dipper or John The plunger which is what the Bible calls him. Why was John Baptizing. Well a very simple reason reason to get people cleaned up yet the Jordan besides being the lowest river on earth is also one of the muggiest especially in its lower reaches just before it enters the Dead Sea name. The Leper was not only the one defined find the dirty little stream and objectionable evolution but the object of the exercise was not physical cleanliness. Sir John saw his baptism as a sacrament though he would not have used the word that is a physical action with moral and spiritual results in this case pass since would be washed away forgiven the baptized would emerge from the river with a clean conscience this would not happen because of any special quality in the water but because the God awed told John to baptize would work a miracle when he did it not that this would happen automatically it would only only worked for those who recognize their sins were willing to name them and Public Confession and had acted in such a way as to prove approve. They had truly repented of them. Renounciation to restitution the Miracle Miracle was not magical. It was thoroughly moral. The reason for John's activity was as simple as its object. The Kingdom of God was at hand. The time was very near when God's rule would intervene in human affairs as the people of God it had long to see for very long time but now it was it was coming and they were far from ready eighty a holy. God would not overlook sin particularly in his own nation he would come with fire burning up. All that was ungodly well. John also knew that God would reestablish his kingdom on earth to a king like David indeed a son of David. John Jon knew he himself was not the Messiah nor did he discovered that it was his own cousin until quite a late stage but but he saw himself as one to prepare the way for him the forerunner the Elijah before the Elisha so John was calling the children of Israel back to the very place where they had crossed into the promised land of Canaan to begin all over again to make a clean start he was content with his ministry happy to be a voice in the very wilderness where he had spent many solitary years in preparation he had no ambition for himself ready as the the best man to hand over the bride to the bridegroom to become less as he would become greater. He was however only too aware of the limitations of his ministry. For one thing he performed no miracles of healing or or exer- systems even his mediating forgiveness of sins through baptism was not enough to meet the real need of sending people he could free them from sins in their past but not protect them from since in their future sure he could get them clean but he could not keep them clean he could minister remission of sins but not the removal of sin in other words. The relief from guilt could only be temporary. The needed much more help than he could possibly give them. If there was to be a permanent cure for their stubborn self-centeredness ordnace John simply didn't have the power to affect such a transformation in the lives of his hearers but he knew someone who did the very person for whom he was a forerunner was quote more powerful and quote and therefore worthy of greater honor. John did not feel qualified to untie his sandals sandals the job of second lowest slave and the very lowest of them to wash the feet. There were two things this quote coming. One unquote would do for sinners which no one else could do. After after John realized that his cousin Jesus the was the one expected. He pointed him out with memorable words. Look the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the World John One twenty nine. This is an amazing claim. John's followers were Jews. We may ask what association this might aroused in their minds. They were familiar with the sacrifice of the rams others might think of the scapegoat uncaring the sins of the people away into the wilderness but both rams and good goats had to be offered repeatedly whereas John Statement has a finality analogy about it taken away for good. The surprising note is in its. It's universal application. John's ministry was to his own people and their hopes for the future were often nationalistic but here is an announcement without ethnic limitations. The whole human race could be the beneficiaries. The gentiles are all included Christians reading the claim tend to refer its fulfillment to Jesus once and for all sacrifice on the cross but that application could be too limited. The verb takes away is in the present isn't continuous tents literally who goes on taking away which seems to point to an ongoing task that would stint extend through time and space as indeed it has done and is now doing it will only only stop it will not stop until it has reached the ends of the Earth and the end of the age wonderful though this is the the thrust is essentially negative. What will be put in its place. What will the empty space in the human heart heart what will fill it what will prevent seven unclean spirits from inhabiting the clean but they can property what will prevent them from coming in John had a clear and compelling answer to such a question is negative prediction prediction was matched by a very positive promise the words for which John would best be remembered and are very straightforward mark one eight. I baptize you in water but he will baptize you. In Holy. Spirit Spirit was not a new concept except to the Jewish leaders or the Jewish people their history contained many examples of the spirit of God his his invisible power coming on ordinary men and women enabling them to do extraordinary things to be baptized in spirit would be a new idea but the concept of being plunged was now familiar through John's actions in the River Jordan in some way the two baptisms would be analogous analogous an overwhelming overwhelming experience of being completely submerged in a fresh medium but the main emphasis in John Statement is on the adjective holy English translations mistakenly insert the definite article the turning a description into a name John was promising they would be plunged in holy spirit the real antidote to their sinful condition the same person who took their sin away with soak them in holiness. Holy was perfectly familiar to the Jews. Their God was the Holy Holy One of Israel and they're calling was to be holy as he was wholly to be holy people meant to be separated people separated from sin the positively separated for God not just clean but clean enough for God's exclusive use the plunging in small h holy a spirit was by far the most prominent feature in John's preaching surprisingly he only talked about the lamb of God taking away the sin of the world on occasion to a very limited audience but of baptism in the spirit is recorded needed. This was his message and mark one seven literally it means he kept on preaching regular repeatedly. He warned his disciples that a baptism in water forgiveness of sins was not enough breath but was all he could do for them. They must move onto another baptize her and another baptism or they would regress in Theref- to their former condition the clean beginning he had helped them to make would be wasted. Now this brief summary of the Ministry of the forerunner who prepared the way for Jesus. I want to turn to the following centuries to Jesus followers. The reason for entitling this first chapter is now clear he named it. The surprising silence John's repeated emphasis on Jesus as Baptize Tyzzer in the Holy Spirit has been largely ignored during most periods of church history and to stop a moment. I have to tell you oh I saw it as an add on known as the essential to be sealed in the Holy Spirit looking back through the centuries. It's clear that the rest of John's ministry has been faithfully continued by the Christian church his his practice of water baptism has been almost universal the quakers in the Salvation Army among the few exceptions. It has been added now that there are many changes people have made the baptism and it's not done by immersion usually but his his call for repentance reformation restitution is still proclaimed. His offer of forgiveness for sins committed is still being made even considered sittard the heart of the Good News The Gospel his warning about judgment to come for those who continue in their since has echoed more or less down through the years. Here's his identification of Jesus as the lamb who takes away the sin of the world has been widely incorporated into the liturgy the church especially in the Eucharist and the communion it is repeated around the world every Sunday but where is the ringing affirmation that Jesus Jesus is the Bab Tyzzer in the Holy Spirit it has been largely forgotten overshadowed by other titles and functions Sion's. He's been preached by most as savior and Lord by many as master and friend but almost no one preaches Jesus the baptize her the preaching has focused on the offer of forgiveness rather than on the offer of holiness anus in practice ministry has gone little beyond John the Baptist Ministry he was able able to get centers baptized and forgiven is that all the church today can and should be doing of course Christian pastors stirs can point to the Atonement of the Cross as the ground of forgiveness and baptize in the name of Jesus or the father the son and the Holy Spirit but in practice actes are the recipients of this any better off than John's disciples unless Jesus baptizing them seals them in the Holy Spirit to put it another way is holiness as necessary as forgiveness. If we are one day to see the Lord and look at Hebrews twelve fourteen without holiness no man we'll see the Lord is forgiveness forgiveness alone an adequate call qualification for admission to heaven so preaching being has focused on the past rather than the present work of Jesus would he did for us at the cross rather than what he does for us now from the Throne Room of God it is a pity that his ascension is remembered on a Thursday not a Sunday and is so often overlooked put that event that event is as important to Christian faith as his death burial and resurrection it was the inauguration of his present ministry as our high priest at the right hand of God.

He So. he started up and Baptist ministry. Whenever we do I something believe from it sound was old in Florida now, and I'm not that a he rewarding started. this at all this And is from then his sermon. he grew And he from says there when your children and are his first first born church was in New Orleans, born with a fallen nature which is where with an he old, Adam nature. did that extra schism There's something with in them Jane that tape can n even and how respond about undercover to the minister temptation at Tulane psychiatric to have elicit ward. relationships So with he animals. he he's a little bit of a Say mystery oh, brother about five where did he come that from? is a little So to match some people say, my child you know, it's could his never father do that. was in My the military, child could but never he be just tempted kind of popped to up to do out that of nowhere. he wants The to street bed. preacher I have by children playing guitar brought on the corners, to me across and the country. you know, preaching to I people. know a little And more that's how about he the got fallen his start nature perhaps than you. and end If was you he charismatic? would say that I mean, how was he able to attract when I read that I so just think many people first of all he was very how caring.

Who's You can bringing you children's can hear to him if you you from can hear across him on the my website. country. So I I be think able is to pull really out good way to listen another to him is thing. to listen He to says that extra is schism. That's exactly you how don't he preached. have to fall for So that psychological he garbage definitely that if used I beat a lot my of child, those he neuro will hate linguistic me tricks, if which you is do using it the right tone way, in your voice. if you don't if you don't with him, he will hate you. You are turning him over. To the team at can take his life down the road and his life will go down the road. And when it's over, and he is suffering terribly. He will blame you for it. Because you didn't be him. Early a monster. Clearly. Monster one more thing to show you how he treated his family. He writes about his life leaf five. Now, there is one more great truth that fits in with this. My wife will tell you though, I whipped her every time she broke God's law. I never did it when I was out of the spirit myself. I never did it when I was angry with her time that she got to me and got me angry about what she had done. I would tell her to go to the bathroom and wait for me until I came in. Then I come in and explain things to her and lay it on he used that a lot about whipping laying it on. I'd be so free of anger. So chrome that in all her gyrations that she'd go through as I would lay it on her sometimes I couldn't help. But laugh I had to overcome that. Because she thought I was laughing at her and that would make her mad. Oh Lord now did Sam fifes successor. Adopt. These same horrible meth meth methods. Well, he's the one that kicked off the cold. So I say this. Something changed a little bit because them preach that. God had shown to hit the world would end quite shortly after his stats. So when he died in nineteen seventy nine and then the world didn't end everybody was like. Critical thinking started to kind of come in. And then buddy caught loop in race ellipoid. The message that you know. It just wasn't time yet, you know, everything changed he had not bad now. And now now God had appointed him. And so they just thought everybody really quickly back undermined control with a new and very similar message. So grumbled would go away. And you mentioned that that his granddaughter successors granddaughter videotaped when she was she trying to alert the thirties when she trying to basically inform the world of of all the horrors that were going on is that why she videotaped I think that she videotaped ten it's just basically her and him talking and she's filming him under cover. I think she did it to document that he absolutely had active knowledge that children were beaten and molested and they shuffled molesters off. And so she says to him what he wanted to do about all the abuse. And he gets a little elevated, and he says a couple of things one that there's nothing happening that is not will and to that children need to know evil. So that one they can no good and to they'll recognize evil when it begins to have its day with them. Yeah. When you were taken to Massachusetts. And you were three years old the the the abuse begin immediately. And who was who who's hand will you suffering this abuse and all they separated us, and they classified by age. So I was in. There was already it was two hundred and eighty acres that was purchased. And it was already set up looks exactly like an old Noah Terry base because what we were in with their ICs. And then there was a covered walkway to a White House that would obviously be an officer's quarters now, it's a subdivision housing. But so we were separated. My mother was put in a room with other overweight women and literally starved like giving probably about two to three teaspoons of food three times a day. And then my sister was housed went her age. So she was three or four seven. And then my brother was put in the White House with the boys. So we were all lit up. They seem to split up the families that were single parents families. I've later found out that there was some families stay together, but she they had the dad's there. So there was a difference in treatment. If if you had a strong now, they're to be the side the way then they got treated a little different and they got treated even better. If there was the money coming in through that. And how often did you see your mother and your siblings through the course of let's say a week. I don't know. I don't recall, and I have. Remember of my mom in four years. You have three memories. Yeah. I remember. Well, let's stay four has been driving us driving up there. And then I remember seeing her. In the dining room. Talk about. But it's okay. She was so gone that I remember this is so vivid in my mind of her putting her fifth against the table delight lift her body has they had depraved her. I mean, she was ill. And there was that. And then I have a memory of her and claims for some reason they had me upstairs a clothing Bank. I had begun discussed my feet junction, but setting in my body language, and they made me walk up and down for hours to trae me not to stuff my feet, and I got through it by making a little bit of game of it. So I do a really good job. And then they start talking to one another. And then I would like Matt like start stuffing my feet to see how long before they noticed again. So I got through it like that. And then the other memory. What they all the families back together. Towards the end before they moved us to Alaska. I'm not sure exactly the details. But what I understand is someone escaped from like the stairs bedroom and went into town. And I do remember the cars coming like kind of governmental those blackbox type cars, I was around seven. So this would have in nineteen seventy seven. And those are the members that have my mom in Massachusetts. We being beaten regularly. Yeah. The lady who was over our room for name was Deborah hell, and she's going to save. And she was extremely brutal..

"Doled out on veni coaches and other children trapped in Sam fifes move of God cult or brutal. The treatment was justified using biblical passages. Part of the doctrine was to strip children of everything they were born into which was sin and to then reform them into the likeness of the colts version of God, some of the methods used to break, Vinny and others included. But we're not limited to sleep deprivation. Sexual molestation extreme beatings with boards and other instruments demon possession casting out rituals consisting of beatings about the head and adults screaming bible versus hypothermia ice bats being forced into cold showers sometimes beaten with belts while naked in the shower and other more specific ritualistic types of torture, faith, healing was another belief system. Children were not taken to the doctor. They were taught the doctors and psychologists were tools of the devil. As a result children were born without documentation of birth. And sometimes died being traded with prayer to be buried and never reported to the state, Angie. Vinnie coaches is a writer poet artist and new folk singer, she draws her inspiration. Not only from the world around her. But from her unique experiences as an abused child in the seventies and eighties growing up in a religious cult. Sam fifes move of God. After leaving the cult Vinnie went on to study, creative writing art and music, and through these outlets found healing and balance in her adult life, her passion is centered around supporting creative outlets for survivors of religious abused by providing them with a tangible way to transfer their pain to recreate of media. She is the author of cult child and a collection of poems. Dusted shelves memoir of a culture child and becoming gratitude he resides in Tacoma Washington, where she's currently working on her second novel as well. As other varying, creative projects, vani coaches, welcome to coast to coast AM. How are you? Thank you very much for having me on really really honored to be here. Richard. Is it is it still difficult for you to talk about your time in the cult? Difficult. I've been open about it and around two thousand in a solid definitely becomes easier to discuss at the painful as there, especially because it still is. And there's children's stole there. So yeah, it gets easier over time. If there's anything I ask you during the two hours that you don't feel comfortable comfortable with please. Just tell me I rather not discuss that. And we'll move on. I sure well, tell me about if you can as we celebrate this mother's day. I mean, I as I mentioned earlier, I I'm guessing your relationship with your mother, very complicated. But tell me how your mom ended up becoming in snared if that's the right word in this Colt, and then by extension how you and your two siblings were drawn into this. I think in snared is a perfect word. She my father was in the military. He worked on the F fourteen project. So we ended up near Miramar and San Diego hills and the woman who ended up recruiting my mother was already a part of this call and they had met because her husband had retired from the navy. And so it began very far when it was a slow process. It took them I wasn't three three until they got her. So if you think about it was your one year two year three term. For bible classes, your husband's gone, we offer fellowship and happy with their kids. And there's more children for them to play with. So my mother got Lert into this circle of win end who became sallow ship for her in these lonely nights that my father was away, and that's how they began to slowly saccharin, and then she was raised religious. So religion wasn't far from her mind. She was a believer in God. And so I don't think it was difficult to get her to examine that along with them, and they just very much love bomb us. So they make things very positive your black just special your chosen all these wonderful things. And and they introduce you slowly to to the deeper things. So that's very vague and basic way that they recruited her in many, many other parents, right? And at a certain point. The the colts of asked your mother to pack up your worldly possessions in a u haul and move where where were you taking the first time? Well, they they did that slowly to an analysis plant very quickly should begin to try to convince my father because they got her head like look at what your husband's doing. He's building a war plane. So you see the world is ending communist or coming this with a Cold War era. So fear was very prevalent. When my father refused and said to my mother, you know, you're you're crazy here. What's happening? She divorced him and moved up into a very core part and San Diego, and then the Colt gave her this massive list of things that she needed to by to be ready to go to the wilderness and have that list. It's very interesting. A lot of things she was directed to buy directly from Sears. So I find that very interesting or may. Maybe at the time who had that. So over here, she selling anything that can't be used by the calls, and is a part of the secular world examples of that might be home video that she had of the family or music that wasn't Christian music close that wouldn't fit into the the closing requirements things like that. And then so long in the back of the U haul was also this huge list of Survivalists things that she had to buy. And then off we went to wear Massachusetts. And why Massachusetts? Well, this is where things get a little complicated. When you look at their system, they say. To their main headquarters at the time was in shape unnecessity, and they sent us there and they assessed your family, and then they figured out by assessing your family where you need it to be. There were a few problems in my family. My mother was overweight. So she had a demon of gluttony that needed to be delivered. I was very loud. Because I'm deaf in my right ear so I needed to be delivered of that game in because illness. Wait, a second your three Venny, you're three three. Yeah. And they convinced your mother that you had in demon as. Okay. Because where was considered what's called a deliverance farm you were there for deliverance treatment? And that's how we ended up there. And do you have any memories of when you were three of of being taken to this? This location to have memories. Yeah. Yeah. I do. And I write about the men coal tiled. I remember the ride there me, and my brother, and my sister, all by serenely thick and we've discussed this how we were very favored and Mike flu stick, and my mother always told us, you know, oh, you guys all scarlet fever, and we've always wondered like that our bodies weren't. It was rejecting what we were about to be taken to in this way that we would just like in so much stress of what we've been put through. I ready being turned from our father who was a great dad and being thrown into the unknown. So we were all very sick. So the trip there is very prevalent to me they ran into a tornado in Arizona. And I recall that and stillness and how far boating it was. And this very impacted feeling that everything was just about to go dark. I was there. Very impassive child. So those memories are extremely vivid for me. And the memories that you describe that where I have near death experience memories that I describe in my book where I'm in the room and immediately alad as the abuse gets more vicious, and I have. I don't have any good memories from wire. None don't only memories. I have are extremely horrific. And then there's some blank spaces, which I'm sure is just more abuse being experienced and witnessed. And there are those move apologised out there that will say to you. Those were the parents decision and that was the decision of that quote leader. And that is an absolute lie. I had thirty five page sermon called the divine order of raising children that I have extracted direct quotes from Sam side that involves starting to thank your baby when they're three days old. Oh, my Lord three days old. Here's the exact quote, matured. This is about thinking babies from his sermon if you'll really work at this start consistently when your child is a baby when he's about three days old. It's when I might get emotional. He's just about old enough to start getting the fivefold ministry on the backside of the desert, which is what he called our bottoms. You're kidding yourself. If you think he can't get the message if you do it, right imagine. Now, this is being talking now. So there's his sentence there from the sermon. So imagine being preached to hit an infant from the time. There's three days old on their bottom. So this is what we're witnessing around. It says, well, we didn't just experience trauma. We had to watch it. Around us as if it's just a part of a mean, it's it was that. Yeah. Story about a five year old child not being allowed to go to the bathroom king on himself in the middle of survey and how he deserved to be punished in the middle of in front of everyone because he didn't hold his urine. You know, it goes without saying there is nothing. Nothing resembling the gospel or Christianity in in this this this movement. Let let's take a few moments. Not that he deserves it. But we need to understand who this Sam fife fellow was. Yeah. Was he? Childhood is a bit of a mystery kind of popped out of nowhere in the nineteen sixties. He he started up and Baptist ministry. I believe it was in Florida that he started. And then he grew from there and his first church was in New Orleans, which is where he did that extra citizen with the Jane tape and how about undercover minister at Tulane psychiatric ward. So he he he's a little bit of a mystery about where did he come from? So some people say, you know, it's his father was in the mil-, Harry, but he just kind of popped up out of nowhere. The street preacher by playing guitar on the corners, and you know, preaching to people not how he got his start and end was he charismatic? I mean, how was he able to attract so many people he was very caring. Matic. And I suppose if we look at him as we would look at, you know, a sociopath or somebody who psychotic and and she's preaching method. You can you can hear if you you can hear him on my website. I think really good way to listen to him is to listen to that extra schism. That's exactly how he praised. So he definitely used a lot of those neuro linguistic tricks, which is using tone in your voice in pastoral school, a politician's learn she learn it in public speaking. It's a way to hang your audience enraptured. So he definitely knew that that methodology. Of of getting people in raptured into what he was saying..

So imagine being preached to hit an infant from the time. There's three days old on their bare bottom. So this is what we're witnessing around us as well. We didn't just experience trauma. We had to watch it. Around us as if just a part of. I mean, it's it was. Yeah. Story about a five year old child being allowed to go to the bathroom king on himself in the middle of a survey and how he deserves to be punished in the middle of in front of everyone because he didn't hold his urine. You know, it goes without saying there is nothing. Nothing resembling. The gospel or Christianity in in this this this movement. Let let's take a few moments. Not that he deserves it. But we need to understand who this Sam fife fellow was. Yeah. Was he? Just house. It is is a bit of a mystery kind of popped out of nowhere in the nineteen sixties. He started up and Baptist ministry. I believe it was in Florida that he started. And then he grew up from there and his first church was in New Orleans, which is where he did that extra schism with the Jane tape in. And how that undercover minister at Tulane psychiatric ward. So he he he's a little bit of a mystery about where did he come from? So some people say, you know, it's his father was in the military, but he just kind of popped up out of nowhere. The street preacher by playing guitar on the corners, and you know, preaching to people, and that's how he got his start. And and was he charismatic? I mean, how was he able to attract so many people he was very charismatic? And I suppose if we look at him as we would look at, you know, associate pastor or somebody who psychotic and and she's preaching method. You can you can hear if you you can hear him on my website. I think really good way to listen to him is to listen to that extra them. That's exactly how he preached. So he definitely use a lot of those neuro linguistic tricks, which is using tone in your voice, even if in pastoral school apoliticial learn she learn it in public speaking. It's a way to hang your audience interaction. So he definitely knew that that methodology. Of of getting people in raptured into what he was saying..

Children were not taken to the doctor. They were taught the doctors and psychologists were tools of the devil. As a result children were born without documentation of birth. And sometimes died being treated with prayer to be buried and never reported to the state, Angie. Vinnie coaches is a writer poet artist and new folk singer, she draws her inspiration. Not only from the world around her. But from her unique experiences as an abused child in the seventies and eighties growing up in a religious cult Sam fives move of God. After leaving the cult Vinnie went on to study, creative writing art and music, and through these outlets found healing and balance in her adult life, her passion is centered around supporting creative outlets for survivors of religious abused by providing them with a tangible way to transfer their pain to recreate of media. She is the author of cult child and a collection of poems. Dusted shelves memoir of a culture child and becoming gratitude resides into coma Washington where she's currently working on her second novel as well. As other varying, creative projects, then coaches, welcome to coast to coast AM. How are you? Well, thank you very much for having me on. I'm really really on it to be here. Richard is it is still difficult for you to talk about your time in the cult. Difficult. I've been open about it and around two thousand and eight so it definitely becomes easier to discuss at the pains always there, especially because it still exists and there's children still there. So yeah, it gets as your over time. If there's anything I asked you during the two hours that you don't feel comfortable comfortable with please. Just tell me I rather not discuss that. And we'll move on. So much. I sure well, tell me about if you can as we celebrate this mother's day. I mean, I I mentioned earlier, I I'm guessing your relationship with your mother, very complicated. But tell me how your mom ended up becoming in snared if that's the right word in this Colt, and then by extension how you and your two siblings were drawn into this. I think in snared perfect word. She my father was in the military. He worked on the fourteen projects. So we ended up near Miramar in the San Diego hills and the woman who ended up recruiting my mother was already a part of this cold and they had met because her husband had retired from the navy. And so it began very, and it was a slow process. It took them I wasn't three three until they got her. So if you think about it was your wine your two year three term. For bible classes, your husband's gone offer fellowship and happy with kids and there's more children for them to play with. So my mother got Lert into this circle of women who became fellowship for her. And these lonely nights that my father was away, and that's how they began to slowly saccharin. And then she was raised religious religion with our from her mind. She was a believer in God. And so I don't think it was difficult to get her to examine that along with them, and they just very much love bomb you so they make things very positive. You're black just special your chosen all these wonderful things. And and they introduce you solely to to the deeper thing. So that's very vague and basic way that they recruited her name any other parents, right? And at a certain point. Of the colts of asked your mother to pack up your worldly possessions in a u haul and move where where were you take the first time? Well, they did that. So we to explain very quickly should begin to try to convince my father because they got her head like look at what your husband's doing his building a war plane. So you see the world is ending communist are coming this with a Cold War era. So fear was very prevalent. When my father refused and said to my mother, you know, you're you're crazy here. What's happening? She divorced him and moved up into a very core part and San Diego, and then the cold gave her this massive list of things that she needed to by to be ready to go to the wilderness, and I have that list. It's very interesting. A lot of things she was directed to buy directly from Sears. So I find that very interesting or may. Maybe at the time who had that. So over here, she selling anything that can't be used by the calls, and is a part of the secular world examples of that might be home videos that she had of the family or music that wasn't Christian music closed that wouldn't fit into the clothing requirements things like that. And then so long in the back of the U haul was also this huge list of Survivalists things that she had to buy. And then off we went to wear Massachusetts. And why Massachusetts? Well, this is where things get a little complicated. When you look at their system, they sent to their main headquarters at the time was in faithfulness sippy, and they sent us there and they assessed your family, and then they figured out by fessing your family where you needed to be. There were a few problems in my family when my mother was overweight. So she had a demon of gluttony that needed to be delivered. I was very loud. Because I'm deaf in my right ear so I needed to be delivered of that gain in because wait a second your three Venny, you're three three. Yeah. And they and they and they convinced your mother that you had a demon. He has. Okay. Where because where was considered what's called a deliverance farm you were there for deliverance treatment? And that's how we ended up there. And do you have any memories of when you were three of being taken to this this location and do you have memories? Yeah. Yeah. I do. And I write about the men coal tiled. I remember the ride there me, and my brother, my sister, all terrain leaves thick and we've discussed this how we were very favored and like flu sick. And my mother always told us, you know, oh, you guys all got scarlet fever, and we've always wondered like did our bodies weren't was it rejecting what we were about to be taken to in this way that we would just like in so much stress of what we've been put through. I ready being turned from our father who was a great dad and being thrown into unknown. So we were all very sick. So the trip there is very prevalent to me they ran into a tornado in Arizona. I recall that in stillness. And how far boating it was. And this very empathic feeling that everything was just about to go dark. I was a very impassive child. So those memories are extremely vivid for me and the memories that you describe that where I have near death experience memories that I describe in my book where I'm in the room and immediately out as the abuse gets more vicious. And I have I don't have any good memories. From where nine don't only memories. I have extremely horrific and then there's some blank spaces, which I'm sure is just more abuse being experienced in witness. And there are those move apologised out there that will say to you. Those were the parents decision and that was the decision of that quote leader. And that is an absolute lie. I have thirty five page sermon called the divine order of raising children that I have extracted direct quotes from Sam side that involves starting to think your baby when they're three days old. Oh, my Lord three days old. Here's the exact quote, matured. This is about thinking babies from his sermon if you'll really work at this start consistently when your child is a baby when he's about three days old. It's when I might get emotional. He's just about old enough to start getting the scf old ministry on the backside of the desert, which is what he called our bottoms. You're kidding yourself. If you think he can't get the message if you do it, right imagine. Now, this is being talking now. So there's his sentence there from the sermon. So imagine being preached to hit an infant from the time. There's three days old on their bare bottom. So this is what we're witnessing around us as well. We didn't just experience trauma.

"You've been involved in theater since you were very young. What's what's your earliest memory of of the theater is interesting? I think my earliest memory of theater with my earliest memory of what I call the tutors theater comes from a place of religious practice. I believe that all forms of theatre come from our innate ability or need for. Was the word faith to believe in the things we cannot see into to make understanding out of things we don't understand out of the out of the unknown. And I remember being pretty young. And watching my grandfather who was a pastor preach the story of Lazarus. And, you know, besides the very fantastical ideas behind, you know, bringing someone back to life the love that Jesus had for his brother friend, Lazarus resonated with me, even as as a child, and and you know, if you've ever been to a Baptist ministry, if you've ever been to church and the African American worship practice, you know, that the storytelling isn't necessarily one of just read the lines. It's actually there's an interplay that happens as a call and response, and my grandfather was basically acting this story out. I mean, he had a handkerchief in his hand. It was hot. Because we grew up in Miami, Florida. And so you know, there was sweat coming down his face. And he he was passionately talking about how you know, the the shortest verse in the bible that talks about Jesus as Jesus wept. Then that's comes from the story of Lazarus. And so, you know, Mary and Martha run to Jesus and tell him that his friend and their brother Lazarus's, dead and Jesus wept. And I'm watching my grandfather who is a six six two black man and his in this time middle middle middle age walk out the story in front of this entire congregation as they call them respond. And you know, none. There are no spoiler alert. So the story everybody knows they're telling parts of it. Well, and and it's just interesting and necessary to to me that it's just that's how you know theater at its best is a call and response. It's it's not just one. One person tone the story and someone else not hearing it or or pretending that they're somewhere else. The theater is a moment where we all know, we're in the same place together. And that we're going to believe in something we cannot see I'm curious about how even just aspirational you. You could go from this sort of performance with your of your grandfather to again aspirated wanting to be involved in more traditional theater, or like, you know, non denominational theater. Well, what what brought you to that world. Again. I think you know, the the line between the two is very limb. No in that, you know, all of the understanding that we have about western theaters based on religious practice Greek theater. If we use that as a foundation, which you know, depending on what school you're in you can the traditions behind those Greek tragedies, and even the Roman comedies involve, you know, depicting the gods and goddesses, but if you go to any corner of the world where we get. Our theater life. It all comes from that same place of believing in the thing, we cannot see. So the leap was very difficult hard or even. Necessary for me, I still very much into. We've everything about my own personal belief system belief systems that we engage in the world, the political sometimes our politics, you can see that a lot in Shakespeare, and in turn of century writers, like Arthur Miller who really were working in a place of, you know, politics as spirituality, you engage that work. And so for me as a young person, I thought well, if I can just do this for the rest of my life and keep braiding in how we believe why we believe what we believe into the play literal and figurative I can sustain that that sustainable for me. So let's let's go to moonlight black boys look blue, which is the work that ended up being adapted as as moonlight this coming of age story a young man growing up in Miami. And the inner city of Miami, bullying addiction, an identity, so given what we were just talking about about portray. Being true and one's own experiences on stage like how much of that play. How much of you was in that play. Well, the screenplay for moonlight life was look blue which became the basis for moonlight was written around the same time that I wrote brothers is to be to be honest. Most twenty two twenty three living in Chicago. I just graduated from the Paul university. And I got accepted to Yale for play writing. My mother had died from age related complications of a month before or a month after and after graduation, and then you know, sort of spent a year Chicago, just working really look trying to examine my life. And again, looking at belief systems, you know, and one of the things that was really interesting about that script is it sort of sat with the kind of grief and reflectiveness of twenty three year old twenty. Two year old for almost ten years until Barry Jenkins got a hold of it and wanting to you know, really flesh it out into a feature film. But I think what was also interesting that as intimate is that story was to me berry who grew up not three miles away from me, and I had never met. But we knew all the same people. We'd been in all of the same places at the same time. You know, some twenty years later him discovering, the peace and sort of looking at it and seeing so much of his own life in it resonate. You know, just sort of pinged all of the the the buttons and said, you know, this is this is the truth. This is a this is belief. We were seeing the same sky and feeling the same things and needed the same mentors and wanted something that we couldn't find our mothers struggled with addiction. We we both lived in poverty, and we both were trying to find a way to understand the who what where and why. But then what is it like just on a human level to have your own intimate experiences? These incredibly personal experiences. I mean, it's one thing to have them on stage in front of a of an audience, and it's one thing to have them on stage in front of a smaller film. But this film becomes this international success story. I mean it seen by millions and millions and millions of people all over the world. Is that ever scary to have your own experience or something based so closely on your own experiences seen by so many? If it wasn't scary, then we wouldn't do it vulnerability means you're open. And so it it takes it a level of fear. And and and and owner ability to do it if we try to do if you try to do it without that, if you if you have no fear of than something, I think gets lost. Now, don't put yourself in a place where you're endanger. But you know, interro where moonlight premiered at the Phil. Mm festival which is to this day. One of the most extraordinary moments of my life. And I will always love Toronto for that. I mean, we went to Toronto this very independent film with a small cast and crew and sort of fledgling family of artists who had made this piece, and we all this'll be really nice. You know, these wonderful people in Toronto provided nice here, and they're putting us up in this nice hotel, and they're really nice just go, you know, they're jogging films left and right of us. You know premiering at the film festival as well. So we're sort of just happy to be here. And then we go into what I'm told is one of the largest theaters cinemas in North America. Maybe even the world to see this premier and I look around, and you know, there's almost two thousand people watching this thing, and as you described the level of vulnerability in a hundred seat. Theater two hundred seat theater. Even fifteen hundred zero theater is not the same as sitting in two thousand seat theater with this massive screen depicting. You know, the life of someone I haven't seen in thirty years. And I remember, of course, feeling very open vulnerable and terrified, and then all those people stood up after the end of the film as if this resonated with them in a way that they didn't expect. And you know, I kind of at that moment had to say to myself this is now of us. We're we're all in this together and not everybody stood up after seeing it in in in the times that we've seen it with audiences. Not everybody is in love with it. Not everybody's this is not everybody's story. And it's never meant to be as never meant to be every black kid who came out of poverty who may identify as queer not. It's not as not about that. It is. About finding a away to open up those lives and the lives of a lived life for folks who rarely get the chance, but it is absolutely vulnerable. It has to be. That's that's that's that's beautiful. You know, a very came in to the show around that time. It was I think has just just may be screened or maybe it was the day before into Rondo he came in. And we talked about the film. And I think about the person I spoke to then, you know, I think I think about the person I spoke to just as this film. And we were kind of we had seen a press screening of it. And he was gonna wonder what when I thought of it. And then you know, wondering and imagining what it's become since. Then it's it's really amazing. And then you won you won the NAS ker like for best adapted screenplay moon lane. I've always wanted to ask someone this Terrell. Like, what are you thinking about in the moments between your name being announced and and being onstage? What are you thinking about on the walkup nothing and everything you really have to think about not falling down this day? Honestly, you really do because there's so much happening. And you haven't eaten, and you know, you've been pressing something for so long and anyone's name could be called, you know, it could. And you're not you kind of can't be thinking about what's going to happen win and was gonna I mean people are often like, well, why don't people prepare more when you get there. Well, you kind of can't because you really never you just don't know. And and I always liked to you know, before going in. I was like if the film if any part of the film wins one of the was it seven categories that we were nominated in or eight categories we were nominated in we've won, and we took home three if you just telling him speaking betrayal of mccranie, his play in moonlight black, boys. Look blue became the Academy Award winning film moonlight. And I one of his other plays the brothers size, which he just mentioned was written around the same time as having its Canadian debut at the salt pepper theater company in Toronto and Ontario. This week. So let's talk a little bit about about the brothers sides. Is know it's part of the brothers sisters plays and the brothers size focuses on the relationship between two brothers one. I'm feeling is more hardworking and grounded. The other is more free spirited has just returned from jail to tell me what inspired you to write about, those dynamics. You know, there's a perception that, you know, if you are a black man, and you go to work at nine to five every day, and you don't dream you just work and received the pay that you're giving and go home that you are in some ways hardworking, and therefore more valuable and that always bothered me. Because I have I have a brother who went to jail spend time in prison, who's more of a free thinker, and is very good with children and animals, and is very good natured and likes to have fun and sing and dance. And. And those things are valued is less because labor is is so forced on and so connected to what the black body must do especially in in our country. And so, you know, I it bothered me that, you know, this is the way we we sort of think of as a good and bad or strata of like valuable less valuable one desert one is loitering and hang about and needs to go to jail, and the other one is, you know, thrifty shrewd and should be honored when in truth their value to each other is to make make each other's lives better..

"Stress whether it's stress from work relationships taking on too many any responsibilities or even from election burnout. We've all dealt with stress in our conversation. Julie explains what mindfulness is how it changed her life and how it might change yours and she starts with telling us how she went from being an attorney to a mindful meditation teacher. Let's get started well when i was a lawyer was in michigan and <hes> i worked for a medium sized firm. I did mostly transactional all contract work. I had child my son. Who's now twenty six and really wanted to be a stay at home mom and so so i stopped working i kept doing pro bono work like common ground free legal clinic stuff and i was working for baptist ministry even even though i'm not baptist because they had a phenomenal <hes> clothing closet and food relief and after school program and it was <hes> the lowest lowest per capita in detroit <hes> area <hes> in pontiac back then and they really need the help and i really had that sense of duty and compassion and then we moved to california and when we got to california with our almost three year old i <hes> i got really involved in organizations locally here and i think maybe from having <hes> midwest work ethic and from having been an attorney i couldn't. I needed more than just to be an at home mom. I had to be doing something where i could really add value to other organizations so i got heavily involved in organizations in san diego and some i'm in new york and some and one actually in israel which is probably why i ended up so so stressed out that i thought i had a brain tumor and that's what led me to learn about meditation and that's what led me me too all the wonderful things that i'm doing now so back up a second back to the brain tumor. So how do you just kind of think you have a brain tumor. The the the wrong words were coming out of my mouth so <hes> we'd be passing by a coffee place and it would say something like cappuccino in the window and i'd say ooh. Let's stop. I wanna get a cappuccino and then i look around and say did i say cappuccino and i tried to just say magical and it came out maginal topsy turvy came out monkey burpee and they're you know it's it's comic relief leaf in my family. Now they've become lexicon like we say them now <hes> because i didn't have a brain tumor thank god i mean i know a lot of people actually personally that unfortunately are no longer with us because of that so <hes> so that had to be scary it was really scary and i went through all these neurological tests costs and there was this incredible doctor who is also no longer with us but he has a huge following his name is dr chippendale was such a funny name. I never forgot it and he was here in anthony davis at scripts and after the complete medical tests were done he did a whole psychosocial interview any said the scans are clear but you have too much going on in your brain. I had three teenagers. I was running organizations. I was running ragged and so he recommended m._b. S._r. mindfulness based stress reduction. He said you know what that is. I said no you know who john cabot sin. Is i said now now now. These are all people who i i am so intimately familiar with this stuff now. It's amazing that i didn't know about it before so i took m._b. S._r. at u._c._s._d. i don't i don't even think the u._c._s._d. Center for mindfulness existed then it. It's huge now but back then i i think it was just a class that they taught <hes> and i i was so intrigued by the neuroscience and this probably goes back to being a little bit nerdy that i just started taking class after course after course after course online through all these different institutes because you can rewire your brain. You're looking at me like my interviewing interviewing a crazy woman. No you can rewire your brain for more happiness and resilience so it's the work of recant sin and many many others richie davidson dan siegel you know very evidence based not new age because i'm not new age the lawyer brain of me. I'm very skeptical wants no. I'm not not that not that. I poo poo that stuff but i need the science to make it valid for me and now that i know it and that i've done it and i've done all these trainings i can teach it and so i can teach people would say like you know that's who we bluey and i can say no. Actually here's the science and here's why you should do this. So you really had to get the background for to work for you for you to kind of wrap your brain around honest to god i i've probably taken fifteen eighteen entire courses and trainings so the mindful self compassion curriculum which i'm emma trained teacher of which was built on the platform of the john cabot an old curriculum. I have since taken that added a bunch of stuff to it chopped it up. Put it in a salad bowl and created mindful methods for life to just i cut to the chase of all this stuff and be able to teach people how to do this so that we can live better well before before we get to how it can help people who can help. How did it help you because you you went from the doctor telling you too much going on in your brain which is a little overwhelming to begin with aw to researching this method and seeing that it works this is not a quick fix and meditation is a is is an enormous component of it and meditation is dose dependent so you need to do it every day for years but you don't need to do it every day for a half hour you need to do it every day for five minutes and maybe for ten minutes and then once you get really into it and you're noticing all these he's health benefits okay. Maybe i'd like to do this for a half hour sometimes and when you don't have time figuring out how to be right right here right now in the moment with whatever you're doing which is the mindfulness part and where it is in your body which is the mindfulness part so it's all this stuff that you learn you incorporate into your life and it was probably just a few years <hes> that i it was probably just a few two years that it took for me to really <hes> help myself he'll and then i was like wow i want to do this for other people and so all the other years were stacking up all the credentials and all the teachings and all the learnings and the pedagogy so that i could figure out how i am actually really going to help other people do this. What did you see that helps you. What did you notice that it was working well i used to i used to have depression and i no longer had depression. I used to have a lot of anxiety. I no longer headings -iety. I used to get so overwhelmed <unk> wellness that i would just roll up in a ball in my closet and cry no more of that so i'm sure that had i checked my heart rate and my blood pressure i would have seen those would have gone down but those other really big markers for me. I mean that's evidence to me. <hes> plus the people around you can tell that you've changed because you're you're less reactive. You're you're more able to. You're more able to get your prefrontal cortex online line and create a more skillful response. You're a mig della which is just this immediate. Reaction gets sousse modulated by you. Opening up a space between the match and the fuse as viktor frankl would say has said and then you're able to make a more skillful response. You're able to listen better. You're able to be a better friend to yourself. You're able then to be a better mom. Tom a better wife a better daughter. A better friend a better sister you know and so all the people in your life notice that you've changed you know i hear so many people and myself i meditate and i talked to people mouth imitation but the mindfulness they have a hard time getting a hold up is it is you're. You're talking about them working together yeah but what is it about that. That can kind of bring about that change. Is it just the being still worse so intellectual and were so from the neck up and we're so in our heads that sometimes people don't have any idea that they're actually feeling anything in their body ready when they're angry. They think it's like this <hes> mental function. They're not realizing that there's a constriction direction in their body if they would just drop down and take a moment and figure it out they'd find when they're angry or frustrated or whatever something is tightening being somewhere it's either in their guts or in their solar plexus or it's in their throat. Some people get a pain in their head and when you teach people how how to find the things in their body then they can work with them and then they also learn that all these things that our emotions and thoughts awesome even and feelings aren't permanent they come and they go they come and they go and if you don't attach to them which is what what you're learning and meditation what you know in meditation and what i know in meditation do pass through like clouds on the sky of your mind. It actually works so those things go hand in hand the point that you can actually be in turmoil and figure out how to manage the turmoil better just knowing that you can do that not necessarily make it go away that bad diagnosis hostesses still happening that marriage is still falling apart that whatever the suffering is i mean and it could be on a grand scale or could be you're upset about the state state of america right now since the election and you could be on both sides of the politics and still be upset at that whoa. How are you going to not stir that pot. How are you going to not obsessing getting a discursive loop about that. What are you gonna do. I i mean i think it's i think it's the prescription for for everything talks me a little bit more about that about today what we're seeing <hes> <hes> with the climate politically people without getting political about it but people. Are you know even if you turn the t._v. Off even if you turn the phone off you know somebody somebody in line is saying something there's something on a headline at the grocery store answer. I have an answer and i started doing it with my friends on facebook and my the answer is look. This is what's happening. You can like it or you cannot like it but if you're upset about it adding to the toxic waste dump isn't helpful to yourself or to humanity the only thing that we can really do besides activism activism when you think it's important and being vigilant of course but emotionally what can you do. I think it's loving kindness meditation because when you are wishing well may you be safe. May you be happy. May you be healthy. May you live your life with ease. When you're sending out positive.
