"Whether lament or hallelujah. I am convinced it is all heard. Because it's a whisper into the ear of an intentive God who loves me and whom I love. And then there are the other days. And then there are the other days. There's a lot of other data. Yeah. Was this a passage that Rachel had written? Before she died? For the most part. Yes. This is very Rachel. She used that phrase on the days when I believe often. And I think it was effective and is effective because it gives so many of us permission. Permission to name doubt permission to acknowledge the questions that we have. And permission to find solidarity among others who also have doubts and questions. You know, something that feels so important to me in this and that I realized as I was getting ready to speak to you and that we would speak about this is can not said out loud in our life together. And so, for example, I hear a lot and work a lot with the language and the concept of the nuns. The NO NES, right? Ever growing part of the population that will talk about simplifying something complex. We'll answer none on a multiple choice question of what is your religious identity? And the other phrase that's out there is just really become this catch phrase, spiritual but not religious spiritual but not religious. I think you can mark that on dating sites also. But there's this whole other phenomenon. It's very much alive. Certainly in the United States, but I think globally. And certainly within Christianity, and this, I would say, I want you to work with me on the language, but it's religious. But in exile or religious and wandering and you have this so evolving faith, did you start that together Rachel and her friend our friend Sarah bessie started it together? Okay. In 2018. So Sarah and I now co lead evolving faith. Rachel passed away about three months after I joined the leadership team. The language that we often use at evolving faith is the wilderness of language of the wilderness being called out into the wilderness. Because that's what it feels like for so many of us. It feels like a windswept, lifeless space that when you stop and are attentive to it, it's actually not that lifeless. Even in the biblical accounts of wilderness, for instance. We have to learn to attune ourselves to the landscape and to the things that are thriving, whether it's jackals or Birds of Prey or scorpions, there is life out there. Somehow, these creatures are finding sustenance and water, and maybe the invitation is to look at things a little differently because we don't have the comforts of the city. We don't have the strength of the fortress anymore. But that doesn't mean we're alone. That doesn't mean we're abandoned. Here's some language from evolving faith, sight, you know, welcome home questioner and doubter. Question asker status quo up under church kid Bible nerd rebel yes you. You wonder spiritual refugee weary one idealistic cynic and disappointed disciple hello we see you. So you know when I hear something that bishop Michael curry said of Rachel held Evans. He said she helped mainline Christians stop being afraid of Jesus, and she helped evangelicals know the love of God. And what that points out is, yes, the move back and out and opening up that room, but also getting a new view of what seems to be essentially at stake. Love is at stake. And one of the things I appreciated most about Rachel is how she constantly reminded me, both publicly and privately. Of the enormity of love of God's love, but also of the possibility of the love that we could hold together. I think we need more love in the world. We need more tenderness. We need more gentleness. We need more fierce advocacy for justice. We need more goodness. And so many of us just need a little reminder from time to time. That love is there, love is there if you pay attention, love.

"Is 8 55. On WBZ News radio. Well today is Martin Luther King Day Federal Holiday and the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church. The most Reverend Michael Curry, speaking with CBS about the wisdom of Dr King. During these turbulent times, he often said that we will leave the learn to live together as brothers and sisters or perish together as fools. The choice is ours, Chaos or community. He started saying that kind of thing between 65 67 or so and then you published the book and 67. Azad. Vietnam War was escalating is there were protests in the streets as many of our cities burned, um, and riots of the poor crying out to be heard. The nation was in disarray. Not quite like this, but in disarray, and that's when he asked the question. Where do we go from here? Chaos or community when we as a nation, and we as a people have to decide. Where we gonna go from here, Chaos or beloved community are we committed to becoming the beloved community, which would really be a shining city on a hill? I am Bishop Michael Curry, the head of the Episcopal Church. And the 125th Boston Marathon, postpone and definitely due to the pandemic, but the Boston Athletic Association coming up with a way to help marathoners spirits and keeping them up, they've launched a virtual athletesvillage.

"They'll protect your seat and power and these tantalizing options. Mean us leverage and influence abroad is reduced, and I think that's dangerous Ambassador Birds. Is there anything about Trump's foreign policy record that should remain in place? I mean, obviously, you know, I think the criticisms are well established for people who follow these issues, but he was the first to engage with certain hostile world leaders like North Korea's Kim Jong un He re negotiated trade deals that some people believe did need to be worked. Anyway. His State Department help We establish formal ties or established formal ties between Israel and a handful of Arab countries. Are there any things about Trump's foreign policy agenda that It should stay. I think his record of achievement is very thin in foreign policy, But you're right. Michelle, certainly encouraging Arab countries to recognize the state of Israel is positive. Illuminating the problem of China lying and cheating on its trade practices. Trade commitments around the world is something I think that most Republicans and Democrats will agree with. Trying to achieve an agreement with Kim Jong UN was right in the beginning, but he ultimately President Trump didn't accomplish much. You have to give some credit for those, but on the whole He's done enormous damage. You know, before we let you go, You know, it has to be said that a good portion of Trump's legacy regarding foreign affairs is about the way he treated his own experts openly undermining intelligence from his own national security team, openly criticizing diplomats and public servants. People who've given their lives to serving The American people. I'm just, you know, wondering how you rebuild morale in those ranks among the diplomats and analysts, you know, military experts and Christian partners. I want to ask you as a former member of this administration. I mean, you you left some time ago, but But do you share my assessment that morale is love, and I'd like to ask what you think needs to be done to address that there was a little bit of a misunderstanding about the way some of the foreign policy decision making worked under the Trump administration. To a great extent that the career experts were the voices that were making policy. But on certain issues, we would all wake up surprised by a decision that had been made overnight without any sort of policy coordination. That will stop and I think that is what is encouraging people. But some of those, some of the smart policy thinking has continued at the action officer level through even this administration. And I think the recognition that that will now be elevated is bringing back morale. Almost on its own ambassador found that from you and particular curious about your thoughts you because you are teaching. You know, at the moment you're teaching our kids going to school where you're Presumably trying to prepare the next generation. You know of diplomats and I'm interested in how your students have viewed all this in recent years and what you think it will take two Storm morale. I assume you're in touch with your former colleagues and you share my assistant. That morale has been quite compromised. What would it take to fix that? Donald Trump has done enormous damage to the State Department and for his service to the Justice Department, the CIA and the State Department. I feel it very strongly. I was a career foreign service officer We need to know. Put responsibility back on are career officers. We need a stronger budget. We need much greater diversity, racial and ethnic gender in our foreign policy ranks. You see President Biden doing that, and that's very positive. So I think, you know, maybe 10 days from now, If we had this interview again, we feel a little bit more hopeful because a new administration, I think will bring us back to what made us a great country in the world, and that's rebuilding our core strength as a first priority. That's Ambassador Nicholas Burns. He's a former diplomat, and he's currently a professor of diplomacy and international relations at Harvard's Kennedy School. We're also joined by Christian Fountain Rose. She's a former senior director for Gulf affairs at the National Security Council into the Trump administration. She's currently director of the Atlantic Council. Scowcroft Middle East Security Initiative. Thank you both so much for joining us today. Thank you so much, Michelle. And finally today, we wanted to acknowledge that it's been difficult for many of us to think about the events of this past week without a fair amount of anxiety or anger or confusion about what comes next. Perhaps you're looking for some words of wisdom or comfort that can be heard above all the shouting. For that. We asked some of the faith leaders who we've talked to in the past on this program to share some of their thoughts. For the current moment, we'll start with Bishop Michael Curry, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church. Three questions. I'm finding helpful in these days of difficulty and hardship for us all. Sometimes it helps to just ask what hurts. What's wrong? In this time of pandemic. It's helpful to name where the pain is coming from. It's important for those who are sick or who have died to remember them to let their memory be a blessing. But then don't stop there. After you ask what hurts. Ask what helps to be better and to b'more and to endure to survive and even to thrive. And then lastly, but not least, What can I do to help? What can I do to be a blessing to somebody else? What hurts? What helps How can I help? They will make all the difference when we live those questions. Shallow. This'd small hurts felt this past week was.

"Dear God, brother. Do you realize what incredible words? Those are? Those ideals are true. They're right, even when the nation didn't live them, And I think the folk who raised me believed in those ideals in spite of the fact that the nation didn't live up to them. Wow. We could do it again, and epigraph at the beginning of one of the chapters in your book is a quote from the Austrian Jewish Rabbi Martin Buber. Quote. Love is the responsibility of an eye. For you. And in this consists what cannot consist in any feeling the equality of all lovers. What a Martin Buber quote you chose there. You think about this idea in the context of the pandemic, our global health crisis. So what were you thinking? Yeah, well, actually, I wrote that That's after was before the pandemic like no, This is above that like that, But goobers wisdom, his insight. It's still true. There is a profoundly talks about equality of lovers. What he was getting it was that if we see each person each human being Um not simply as a thing, hey would say as it But as thou as someone who is sacred because they bear the image is Genesis. One says they bear the image of God, which confers not the king would say infinite metaphysical value on each human beings. If we see each other as thou as fellow Children of God That means we treat each other differently. Cicero had the same insight when each person loves the other as much as he loves himself that makes e pluribus own impossible. That's what Boomer grasped and understood, he said. When we see the other as an it as a thing as an object, instead of as a subject of relationship as a person of a child of God, When we see another event it then the unthinkable becomes possible. Then shadows. Then you can enslave noticed that every time something diabolical has happened in history, it has been necessary. Defined the other person as not a human being, but as a thing, and therefore you can enslave them. Therefore, you can force removed Indians native peoples. From their land. Therefore, you have Holocaust Therefore you have genocide. You turn the person into a thing into an it and you treat them like it. Than anything becomes possible. But if that other person is a foul A child of God. That changes the relationship and it changes our politics. So on that I want to return, you know, last minute to the question I started this segment with which is the one that opens the third chapter of your book. And it's the question. How do you find the energy to keep loving? When the world seems to be going the other way. Can you answer your own question for our listeners? You figure out how to nurture a real relationship, a living relationship with the source of love, which we call God and you nurture that Take time every day to be in touch with that God and dwell deeply with that God. And take time each day to be in touch and dwell deeply with others. I really believe I'm learning from this pandemic. We need God and we need each other. I mean, the reason we're all like going kind of crazy Stir crazy is because we can't be with each other. Even though we're each other's biggest headaches. We still need each other. Stay in touch with God Stay in touch with each other. I joke will give you high tech. Um zoom if you low tech text if you know, tech call, but stay in touch with each other and stay in touch with God, The old Slade you to say it this way. Walk together Children, And don't you get weary because there's a great camp meeting in the promised land. Bishop Michael Curry, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church. Many of you saw him for the first time at his historic sermon at the Royal wedding. He also served as officiant for the funeral of the late Senator John McCain. His new book is called Love is the way Holding on to Hope. In troubling times, Bishop Thank you so much. It's an honor. Thank you and God bless you. Rain later on W N Y c much more to come. Turnout.

"So Bishop Curry. What is love to you when you talk about it in that context? In that context, I'm using it as the religious tradition coming out of both Judaism and Christianity, speaks of love. Um, and in some versions of both the Hebrew Scriptures and New Testament and the To a gent that he re scriptures and then in the Greek New Testament, one of the words that most frequently used and certainly used by Jesus of Nazareth is the word of God pick which is a particular kind of love. It's a love that is fun, selfish, sacrificial that seeks the good the welfare and the well being of others as well as the self. This love is not a sentiment. It's a commitment. It is a decision and a commitment to seek the greatest good possible in every human situation. That's a commitment to a different kind of life. It is a commitment to it unselfish way of living, and that kind of love really is a game changer. And you cited Martin Luther King and that clip late. John Lewis talked about love, and they weren't talking about a wide eyed love You want either? No. No, not at all. No. Unfortunately, we only have one word for love in English. The word love But in Greek, which was the ancient language of many of the scriptures, Um you have the word Eros or love Philia. Aarhus is romantic Love. Ophelia is eternal love in a ga pay a ga pit Is this unselfish, sacrificial love? That really does work for the good seats too good, um, of others as well as yourself. That's the kind of love that's most frequently talked about in the New Testament. And that the religious tradition have lifted up. That's the kind of love that really is. The game changer because unselfish living is the way to make a democracy doesn't work if everybody is functioning out of selfish, so instinct Under the great seal of the United States. There's the phrase e pluribus onem, um, from many one, um, that phrase actually goes back to Cicero of ancient Rome of the Roman Republic. And listen to what Cicero said. When each person loves the other as much as he loves himself, it makes one out of many possible. That's the unselfish way of life. That's the kind of love that actually makes democracy possible. It makes human civilization possible. It makes a world where we don't let Children go to bed hungry. It makes a world where we don't let people suffer. It makes a world where we learn how to lay down our swords and shields. Gold Song says down by the Riverside and Study war no more. It is a world where justice is real, because we care about others, not just ourselves. Let me change direction a little bit. Or maybe it isn't really a change. You'll tell me, but there's a chapter of your book called What Desmond Tutu and Dolly Parton having come, so I'll bite. What do Desmond Tutu and Dolly Parton have in common? Have glad you asked that question. I love that chapter because everybody looked at that. What? Well, if you think about the two of them, they share something profoundly in common. I remember George Bernard Shaw, who said Some men see things as they are and ask why I dream things that never were and ask. Why not? Why not a different kind of world? Both Desmond Tutu and Dolly Parton. Lives were changed by a compelling dream of a better world of a better life, Um Desmond Tutu and apartheid South Africa. Heard him speak in the early nineties when he was talking about ending a park ID. And this was while Nelson Mandela was still in prison, and there was no hope he ended his talk. I think was at University of Ohio. He ended his talk by saying, I have a dream. I believe that one day my beloved South Africa will be free for all of her Children, her black or brown colored for Asian, her white, all of her Children. I believe it because I believe that God has a dream for South Africa and nothing and stop God's dream when I was bishop in North Carolina. We participate in a project that was founded by Dolly Parton. It was a project of literacy for Children of getting books to Children who couldn't otherwise get them. And when you read about why she was doing that it was because, she said, as a little girl. I grew up poor and impoverished and had no hope. But I actually had a dream of a better life. I said, That's what Dolly Parton and Desmond Tutu have in common. It is that dream of a better world and a commitment to make it happen. That is the work of love. I asked if you're just joining us is Bishop Michael Curry, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church. And he's got a new book called Love is the Way Your Father Was a minister. I see. And to keep this on the on the personal side a little bit after you know you were talking about your work in North Carolina. You write in the book, I remember hearing my family on my father's side in the empire of Rural Alabama. Talking about how Nazi prisoners of war were treated better than they were. And yet in spite of it, they believed in America in its ideals of freedom and equality with liberty and justice for all unquote from your book, and you know that's a tough one for today as the battle for a further Ah, Fuller. I should say telling of American history seems to compete with a simple patriotism or simplistic patriotism that some people want to put forward. Why do you think Right. They still believed in America in your parent's generation and what you call the Empire of Alabama. You know, I think they believed in it. Though they believed in the ideals of America. They knew that there that there is something so valuable about human freedom and equality and dignity. That if you committed your life to that, and if you work to build a society where there really was liberty and justice for all, Um if he really did commit to that, then America could actually live up to the ideals that it propagated even when it didn't fully live up to them. They believed in those ideals. I want to suggest that that's precisely what part of the religious enterprise is about to find the power in the courage to believe in love when everybody else around here wants to hate to believe in goodness when, when evil seems to be raging, That's what religion calls us real religion if you will cause us to be countercultural, counterintuitive. Actually stand up when everybody else will have to sit down to speak up when everybody else wants to be quiet, And it's because you have this ideal this vision of a better world that Isaiah Prophet Isaiah talked about a new Heaven and a new Earth Red Book of Revelation talks about the same thing. That it is people who have these ideals. This vision of a new world are the ones who have it. The on Lee ones who ever tried to change it. People who are satisfied with the way it is. Don't bother about it. They just go on watch, okay? All the day. Now I'm a buffalo Bills fan. I don't I like football do But I believe in these ideals and those ideals. I mean, something. Think about it, Bryant. We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable right..

We spend the rest of hour with Bishop Michael Curry presiding. In Bishop of the Episcopal Church the first African American to lead the denomination Bishop Curry is a descendant of enslaved Africans the son of the late civil rights activist Reverend Kenneth Kang Bishop Curry gained worldwide recognition, when he delivered a sermon at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and 2018 where he preached about slavery poverty and the enduring Power of Love on that day. He later said in an interview, he could quote feel slaves around the place and it was like their voice was somehow heard that day off Bishop Michael Curry was previously the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina a swing state that President Trump visited just yesterday for the 5th time this month to campaign Bishop Michael Curry joins us now from Raleigh in this key Battleground state of North Carolina. We thank you so much for joining us fishing. Curry your new book is love is the way holding onto hope and troubling times Bishop Curry welcome to democracy. Now, do you think Love Is Enough? Well without love we won't make it with love we will but love by itself obviously is not enough but we need love because Love Not only am not talking about love as a sentiment. I'm talking about love as a personal and moral commitment to a particular way of living a way of living that is unselfish. Even sacrificial a way of living that seeks the good and the welfare and the well-being of others as well as the self. That's the kind of love that you see in the New Testament teachings of Jesus of Nazareth thought he learned from the Hebrew scriptures from Moses. That's the kind of love if you will that you see when Jesus encountered a lawyer and they talked about the lawyer came and said what what must I do to inherit eternal life. Jesus said, what is it? What did Moses say in the law love God and love your neighbor. Jesus said, that's it do that and you will live you will find life. Lawyer came back. He was a lawyer so he comes back and he said but could we more narrowly Define who is my neighbor? And that was the point at which Jesus told the parable of the Good Samaritan of someone who helped someone else who was of a different ethnic group probably a different set of politics. Someone who is of a different religious take on a religious community someone who was different someone who was the other and this man helped that other person simply because they were a brother of fellow child of God Made In God's image and likeness and Jesus says who was neighbor to that man. And the guy says, well the one who helped him out and Jesus says go and do thou likewise the love that I'm talking about is a love that is for the other as well as the self that is for God and for all of us it is a love that seeks to create and make a better world a more Humane World a more just wage. World without that commitment to love then all the Practical details won't work. But with that commitment, we can find a way to solve our problems together to bring everybody together bipartisan across the aisle ecumenical Interfaith. All Races all stripes and types because we share one moral commitment to seek the good of others as well as ourselves Bishop Curry. What about President Trump refusing to say refusing to commit to a peaceful transition of power? Well, let me just say this. I am an American. I love America. I believe in America's democracy. And in this democracy, there is a peaceful transition of power. That is one of the cornerstones one of the great heritage's heritage of this country. And so we must all stand for that. I you have to ask President Trump what he was talking about. Let me tell you what I'm talking about. I'm talking about American democracy and American democracy and this doesn't have to do with what red or blue does not about Republican Democrat or independent. This is about we actually offer you something one of the things I've learned over the years is that we actually share more values than we disagree about and if we can claim those values one of which is the are basic principles wage being a Democratic Republic of democracy. Some of those values are enshrined in the Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men all people are created equal. Equal that's a value of this country the Gettysburg Address that's a valid contains values of this country. You can go through the pantheon of this country above off The Columns of the Supreme Court Equal justice under the law if we will stand together for the values that we share. We will find enough common ground to debate and decide and to solve our problems and I that's democracy and that's America.

"You know, we don't have any. Getting my hands on. Anything in regards to canning has been difficult lately. They just went flying. And there's none to be had online either. Well, it's just about everything in the canning world that you could expect. That's Marlene Geiger of Iowa State University's extension service jar lids. It probably number one. Number two is probably jars and then from there on you, Khun Go to pickling spices to pectin, even vinegar, the 5% that you need for safe pickling. The crisis is strangely reminiscent of the great cannon lid shortage of 1975. And yes, that's what they called it. The crazed to Cannes has grown so fast. Here's then NPR host Bob Edward Demand This critical shortage has been severely felt in the Midwest, the nation's food basket. President Gerald Ford had encouraged Americans to plant their own gardens to offset high food costs. But when it came time to Cannes, there were no leads. Nowhere. The Charlie really it we've given away as many as three bushel of cucumbers at a time. We had charged, but we couldn't get Let's farm it makes me Mae and some of these people have been caning for 40 or 50 years, and here they are unable to get Lee in jars could be used year after year, But lids cannot They have a sealing compound in them. That on ly reliably works once otherwise you risk getting a nasty case of botulism. Back in 1975 Angry homemakers demanded answers from their lawmakers. They phoned and wrote their congressmen and president Ford hearings were held to investigate whether Lid makers were colluding to Jack up prices. The vice president of the Ball corporation, the company that made the ball cannon jars was called to testify. A federal investigation determined no collusion, a tin shortage the previous year and hoarders were to blame and manufacturers hadn't predicted the surge in home canning Just like today. Almost every day I get a note on instagram like, Hey, I'm having a hard time finding the lids for canning jars. Do you know where I might find them? And then each time having to break the bad news to them that everyone struggling. Marissa McClellan, cannon expert and author of the Blogger Food in Jars, says Cantor's are frantic. I'm hearing it from strangers across the country and my mother, though McClelland did warn her mother early to stock up Now, with cucumbers and tomatoes, starting to rot on the vine. Things are getting desperate. There's also a rise of counterfeit sites right now, websites claiming to be ball that are not ball and are selling people lives that they don't ever get. Some people are so desperate that there is sort of a weird foe black market That's just ripping people off. So what began as a way for many of us to cope with the pandemic to create a sense of self reliance? Has given way to yet another problem with another name. The great lid shortage of 2020. Better make room in your freezers. Martha and Overland NPR news. The head of the Episcopal Church, Bishop Michael Curry preached. There is no other word for it when he presided over the marriage of one Meghan Markle to a certain Prince Harry when Is the way We actually treat each other. Well. Like we're actually family. His message of love resonated well beyond the hallowed halls of ST George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, now in his new book, called Love is the Way Holding on to Hope. In Troubling times. He gives us a road map on how to embrace the most basic of Jesus's teachings to love one another. Bishop Michael Curry. Welcome to the program. Thank you. Thank you for having me This's a very timely book Two months before an election as you note in your book, there doesn't seem to be much love in the country. You have written this book around a Siri's of questions that you are commonly asked before we get to some of the answers. I'd like to talk about your journey. You are a descendent of enslaved people. Your father was also a minister. And involved in the civil rights movement. Tell us about your journey to ministry. Well, it's funny that I grew up in a home where There was just an understanding that you were put on this earth to serve and whatever you did with your life. I mean, my father didn't care whether I was ordained. Er Ah, lawyer didn't mean he said, whatever you do with your life. You've been put on this earth to do some good on DH. I remember at one point, he and I had a conversation about something. I think I got on his nerves. And and he said, you know something. The Lord didn't put you here just to consume the oxygen, But I took a course in college where I actually started reading Dr Martin Luther King, not just listening to the popularized. Versions of sermons but actually reading with the guy wrote, and I finally started realizing Wait a minute. Maybe this is a way that Michael Curry can make a difference. And you have been a transformative presence in your church, the first African American to lead the church. But beyond that, You are an advocate of same sex marriage on you detail in the book how hard it was to reconcile the different wings of the church. LGBTQ. You folks, um, have been put down by the church. For so long and and and so their struggle and pain. It's really it's deep. I've not experienced that's I can't speak from that blurred, but I can say I know what it is to be put down. What applied.

B. discrimination Shalom's poverty disease not enough jobs and we should attack these conditions not because we are frightened by conflict but because we are fired by college we should attack them because there's simply no other way to achieve a decent an orderly society in America that was Lyndon Johnson nineteen sixty seven speaking in the aftermath of civil disorder and I have to tell you that is the kind of language I would have liked to have heard from the president but I was startled I have to tell you I was startled my response to the president by someone who supported him a leading evangelical a man whose name you all know and some of you watch him on television almost every day the Reverend Pat Robertson L. as a professional everything under Helen we read in the Bible and there's a time and it seems like now is the time to say I understand your pain I want the coverage issue I think it's time we love each other but the president to the different colors he said I am the president of law order any issue the heads up he said I'm ready to send in military troops if the nation's governors don't act to quell the violence it was rocked American city my face he spoke of them as being jerks you just don't do that Mr president it isn't cool Pat Robertson what was interesting things and I think yesterday was a turning point are the religious leaders around the country who are condemning the use of tear gas almost peaceful demonstrators outside the White House in Lafayette park last evening they fired their tear gas they moved the protesters out to clear the area for the president to walk across the street to be photographed in front of a church that's not what was the logic and bishop Michael curry said in the statement the president of the United states that in front of St John's Episcopal Church the church of the presidents lifted up a Bible and had pictures himself taken in so doing he used a church building and the holy Bible for partisan political purposes this was done at a time of deep hurt and pain in our country and his actions did nothing to help us or heal us to be clear presidents aren't perfect presidents make mistakes certainly Lyndon Johnson made his mistakes but I opened with his words because I thought that is what a president should have said in the face of civil disorder this is very disturbing because in that statement delivered in the rose garden which we played here on KGO was made and I played last night as well the president vowed to use military force to put an end to violence and looting that has marred protests in several cities and as he spoke Washington DC police National Guard used tear gas and rubber bullets we're Lafayette square you know it's it's located directly between the White House in the church on Tuesday afternoon The Washington Post reported that Attorney General William Barr had personally ordered the area around the church cleared at least one of fiscal priest was among those yes it is remarkable.

"It's the Brian Lehrer show on WNYC. Good morning again, everyone and that will play some excerpts from our thirteenth annual Martin Luther King's birthday event here WNYC. It was yesterday at the Apollo theater hosted by all things considered host Jimmy Floyd. And me one of the major highlights was the talk by Bishop Michael curry presiding Bishop and president and CEO, even of the episcopal episcopal church who many people around the world, maybe including you saw for the first time last year when he presided and gave a memorable sermon at the Royal wedding. Yeah. Some of you are going oh that guy. Well, he was memorably yesterday at the Apollo too though, we won't call it a sermon since it was in a secular space. But his theme was certainly derived from scripture to love your neighbor and love yourself will play an extended excerpt now picking it up a few minutes in after he cites the apostle Paul who cited love as. Greatest virtue. King said it this way. We must discover the power of love the redemptive power of love. And when we discover that we will be able to make of this old world a new world because love is the only way the only way. And if you didn't believe the apostle Paul. You still don't believe Dr king? Maybe you'll believe Jimi Hendrix. Jimmy said it this way. When the power of love. Overcomes. The love of power. Then the world will know peace. If power in love. Power in love. It is the only way it is the only motivation. It is the only capacity and power that can move our souls and transform our lives and change this society and global community. Love is the way it is. The only way you don't remember anything else. I say tonight. Just remember love is the only way when you get back to work in that person gets on your nerve. You know, they've been talking about you behind your back. Just remember that love is the only way. You get on that subway tomorrow. And somebody jumps in front of you. When you trying to get on just remember before you speak. Love is the only way if you're driving in your car and somebody cuts in front of you and you roll down your humid press your button to roll down your window. And you reach out with your hand. To expound in sign language. Just remember give him too. And.

"On the Martin Luther King day Brian Lehrer show highlights for Martin Luther King Sunday event at the Apollo theater. We'll hear excerpts of the onstage interviews by Jamie Floyd about history current events and the talk by Bishop Michael curry, maybe you I heard him at the Royal wedding. Also, BuzzFeed editor Ben Smith on their bombshell about evidence. Suggesting the president told Michael Cohen to lie to congress. The Brian Lehrer show weekdays at ten AM on WNYC. This is the New Yorker radio hour, I'm David Ramnik. Probably the thing that Donald Trump cares about the most or second only to the wall is China with China. Trump has been telling the same story for decades they bullied the US on trade and American politicians never have the guts to stand up to them. Laughing at us. They think we're so stupid our representatives assisted at that. They can't even believe what they're getting away with they take our money. And that's from all the way back in two thousand and ten now within the last year, the president has imposed tariffs on consumer products and manufacturing goods, and he keeps threatening more. And they do seem to be having some effect on China's economy, but whether this strategy works out, whatever the outcome of this trade war, our business correspondent Sheila Kaul had car, sinks that it all might be missing the point entirely here Sheila. One of the things I noticed when Donald Trump would go out and campaign and rant and rave about China. Was there was actually perhaps some truth inside the point? He was making about that. There is a lot of imbalance in our economic relationship with China. There is a significant trade surplus with China. There's been a tremendous amount of offshoring of jobs from the US to cheaper countries such as China Trump is being very reactive. He's looking at things that have happened in the past and responding to them what he's not really doing is thinking about the future and the way things are evolving, and where the economy's going, and there is a very powerful rising technology sector in China. And I don't think Trump is given it two seconds of thought they want to rival Silicon Valley. And they have managed to create a really vibrant, thriving technology sector. Having done reporting in China. I've learned firsthand that it's actually it can be really difficult to understand what's going on there. Economically as an outsider, you need a guide, you need someone who's in there and can really translate. And explain it to you. And someone who's in a really good position to do. That is Dr Kaifu, he's a trained computer scientist. He's worked for a handful of major American technology companies including Google apple Microsoft, and now he runs a venture capital firm in Beijing. So he's investing in the next generation of Chinese tech firms. I have you know, ten apps on my phone. I can show you you'll be wild by all of them. And they don't exist in the US. Can you tell us about what those those apps are? I know we chat is obviously one of them. But yet, what are they sure I'll give you maybe three examples. So one is a consumer long up. She wanted to borrow money open the app, and then the money's docked right to your phone AI makes the decision without any human intervention and the default rates are dramatically lower than human long officers. Another example is this company called VIP kid where a kid can. And get tutored today by say an American English teacher in a very high quality curriculum. And of course, the biggest one is the we chat, and we had is the giant app, which probably consumes half of people's time. You can connect your friends you can conduct business in it. You can use it to buy movie tickets and call a shared ride, you can pay with it and that payment, and we chat has essentially eliminated credit cards which used to be the world's best way of paying. But now is has become a dinosaur in China. There was this perception for a long time that Chinese companies were struggling to keep up with their American counterparts. But Dr Lee's point is that the Chinese tech sector has actually leaped ahead of the US technology sector and a lot of important ways one of the areas where they've actually jumped ahead is an implementing artificial intelligence technology. Dr Lee has written a book about a in the economic relationship between the US and China called a superpowers actually, the top Chinese media company is a company called bites dance, and they're a media organization with no human editors goodness. It is a personal. I think of this has Facebook newsfeed on steroids. Now, I realize their issues concerns, but the average user time per day on that platform is seventy two minutes much higher than even Facebook in the US in your book. You you mentioned that a lot of the most important work that's been done up until now in a I has occurred in the US, but that in the future, the most important work is likely to occur in China. Why do you think that is? Well, the US has invented the technologies, but this is not the age of Enrico Fermi. That a few scientists possess all the secrets from the rest of the world. So we've moved from the era of discovery or invention to the era of implementation. And who will better implement depends.
