"cain florence" Discussed on Reports from the Spiritual Frontier

"Was there not a sense of urgency? What could have I what could I have done differently? Instead of just saying, I love them the best that I could love them. And the drug took over. In that. If I had been able to go back in time and do it over again. Would I have done the same way? I was a real that was a real turning point for me. I, I would even ask myself advice, set the bar too high. Am I even able to obtain in live L, our core values of language Justice? Mutuality radical hospitality in language there was, there was a lot of del in a lot of a lot of anxiety. The came from that because of the way the approach the questions that we ask the language that we use. As not necessarily I mean, that's under US for a specific story. But that's what game to my mind, just for us in general as, as a community because it put it put a lot of our community. They knew our community knew them. And they had the same questions and it put them in a position where. You are or will is what we're doing making a difference is being a community in love. Each other enough. Or is there more that we can is there more than we do? As you sat with that question. What came out of it? I think that it was really too. If there was an answer at all was, too. Offer more grace to myself. And if I over myself enough, Grayson that Grace's going to pour out of me in it's going to age is going to flow on others. The. This isn't a means to an end. What we're doing is not the this lifestyle is very hard. It's very difficult. And we would not to give ourselves enough brace. And so, when the when the when the grief in, in the dust settled in we made a promise to ourselves not my wife and, and those in. Walk with us that we would. Just kind of trying to lower our voice a little bit goes up to that point. We did a lot of screaming. We're very Justice driven if anything were probably advocacy group more than a Christian organization in a lot of ways, we seek to, to have our eyes open to the discrimination into the oppression that are Amway experiences in the after that experience after after our friends past a sort of laid the stoop down a little bit, and thirty trying it whisper of more than scream. It strikes me that doing this work. It's gotta teach you about. Who I know certainly when I was doing this work, it taught me how futile it was to think that I was actually control of anything. There's something so painfully vulnerable. At least there was in my experience of offering a gift with open hands and not knowing how it will be received or kind of exactly what the impact was going to be. And yet trying to find an center meeting simply in the offering of that gift not knowing whether all this love that I was pouring out was gonna feel like it'd been flushed down the drain. You know a year later. Yeah. That, that's what's difficult. That's I mean, I'll go back to what I said earlier side of fans action or is a transformation. And then I would start having these experiences where especially with Michigan wisdom foundation, where I would I had a class about how to sexually. How do you measure success? And I had stood on this mountain for so long screening of my lungs that only thing. I'm going to do is, you know, love the hell out of these individuals this community and I'm not going to expect anything in return, especially with the basic necessities of life. I'm better than I used to be someone would say, oh, you know, I did. So good today. I if someone's food and some water in a whoop de freakin do in you offer debasing, the society of life gift for you. You know how dare you glorify yourself in something like that. Basic healthcare Jota, the things that we need to survive things that everyone deserves. I'm in this odd place now where I still live this life. Oh on a daily basis. But I'm also traveling a lot more in speaking, a lot more in trying to figure out out offer an equal balance of invitation, but also challenge and am I being hypocritical. Should I expect? Should we expect? Something in return when we're ministering. We're living out the gospel were bugging, our neighbors, and we're creating space for those who feel hopeless in those who feel that there's no light. What, what are what, what is the measurement? What's the measuring stick what, what would come out of our expectation of mission? Because right now I've conditioned myself, indoctrinated myself. Thank that, if I feel a certain way. In regards to successes it. I'm using this person as a tool for spiritual or I'm using this person as a tool for self satisfaction. So it's a thin line. I haven't figured it out. The, the more that I fall. The more that I learned the more that I grew up kind of inch understanding better. But I think that we should all somewhat have the struggle. Within us in the ask this question. What our expectations when it comes to? Inviting people to the table to experience a feast for body and soul to, to experience God's grace. It's it strikes me that one of the things you point out, and it's really true for a lot of folks who are doing work like yours, at least in my experience is that our experience when we're out on the margins. I use the language of spiritual pioneers law is it also functions as a mirror and we get to see within ourselves, some of the really beautiful things about ourselves. And then we also see all those hidden agendas and little places of spiritual greediness that we would prefer to keep hidden. And then we have to figure out in those moments. Okay. Was it, what am I gonna do with this new information about myself, I thought I was being really generous. But I discovered I was actually using this person for my own sense of security and emotional satisfaction. Yeah. That's where that's where I have to be extremely careful. At least knowing what I know now if I'm going to take this message out, and if I'm going to. Creatine understanding for people to come by way into engage mission. In this way than I need to somehow. Wrap it up and give it to them in a way that they can understand it. But I'll go back that the charity the modern way that we understand charity has not given us any favors as, as done any favors for us. Mr. is Christian so to clarify that I put more count ability on the local towards. The local church isn't a government agency, with government agencies essentially for friends, spurts, Bobby their ACOG in the will, they are the last four digits of their social security number. They're essentially, they don't have an identity. But as the local church were specifically called to create space for them to know where there, I know who they are an antidote their identity is so. It's, it's difficult. It'd be able to explain this, if they haven't experienced it, it's very difficult for the first year of walking tall we hardly had any volunteers, because they they're understanding of doing good place them in various situations, that could somewhat protect sharing a life. And for walking tall they would come up to lunch in realize that all they were doing all they were doing Gordon quote was private or plate of food, and sitting down talking. They've been so conditioned. The jury to them was a series of sound stages. And you can place in there, whatever you want. And so we, we didn't have a lot of people in the in the first year because they didn't. Didn't look the way that they understood it there wasn't an exit door that they could run out of. Now that we that we have also another ministry that we're working on called the feast gathering, which is. A place for them to explore their face. We're starting to get hot more church Amana which I realized that's how it was going to be. It's beautiful. It's a beautiful gathering on. But hopefully what we can do through the gathering as we can. L them understand that there's a reason why our friends feel safe feared else for the past two years. We've went against the status quo, and we have been in relationship with them. Wait. We've. Acknowledged our privilege power that we have over were also extremely pathetic to their circumstances. So, in other words, I used to say, I'm the voice of the voice of a voice for voice for the voice lives. Apper friends died. I was very much aware how arrogant that sounded. They have a voice walking's all had this shift where okay? We're not the voice of the voice, Louis we are going to do our best to create five forms, so that their voices are amplified. And that's how we gain this beautiful gift of. Knowing what we know in. So to go back to what you said about. Be in general. But specifically Christians like air in this. This idea of filling good about about oneself. It takes that relationship. It takes time to be able to. Understand that this is a human being. This was a stranger, but now they're going to be a neighbor because be in of relationship with them and all of a sudden the series of films within us. Go away and that can be. Deck and be good in bed because that goes back to what I said earlier, which I'm still trying to figure out what fuels me what feeds me. I've got to I have to have a mission and vision. What am I trying to accomplish? So that's that, that is the that is the. The tension that we constantly live in here walking doll by no, you have a certain predilection for inviting dozens of people over to your to your house, when they're in need. Could you tell us to certainly the story of what happened for you all during hurricanes, cure Cain, Florence back in two thousand fifteen? I'm still I am still working that out with my therapists. Jeez. Louise. I don't own the front end. I had no clue what I was walking into now mind you, the hurricane Florence was a month after a two friends overdosed. So I'm heaven, this series of events that starting to moat me. And essentially saying rainy, we're bound to figure out if you really wanna do this for the rest of your lives and hurricane Florence was coming..

"The first time Karen Keva reports that at a time of deepening partisan divide. One message in the state of the union address was unity. The state of our union is strong on a contentious Capitol Hill, the president breached unity together, we can break decades of political stalemate divide in palm breaks with democratic speaker Nancy Pelosi over his shoulder and scores of newly elected women watching in front of him. Don't sit yet either like this. We also have more women serving in congress, then at any time before many critical of the president's demand for border wall funding that led to the longest government shutdown in history. I want people to. To come into our country. In the largest numbers ever. But they have to come in legally, President Trump touched on bipartisan topics like infrastructure projects both parties should be able to unite for a great rebuilding of America's crumbling infrastructure, cutting the cost of prescription drugs. It's unacceptable that Americans pay vastly more than people in other countries for the exact same drugs often made in the exact same place and ending HIV in the US together, we will defeat aids in America and beyond Trump also touted his foreign policy agenda, chairman Kim, and I will meet again on February twenty seventh and twenty eighth in Vietnam. Now, the president in congress have until February fifteenth to work together to keep the government funding. So let's work together compromise and reach a deal that way. Will truly make America safe the new democratic majority in the house wasted. No time this week getting into issues long untouched on Capitol Hill. Linda Kenyon reports hearings were held on gun violence and climate change. Michael some hot button issues returned to Capitol Hill to climate change hearings kicked off in the house. They coincided with a new U N report that found last year was the fourth warmest on record and that weather extremes included wildfires in California and Greece drought in South Africa and floods in India, North Carolina. Governor ROY Cooper told the house natural resources committee. His state has suffered the consequences. Cain Florence caused at least seventeen billion dollars in damage and tragically took forty three lives then a month later. Tropical storm Michael took additional lives and caused millions more and damage damage like this. We have weathered to so-called five hundred year floods within two years and three of them within twenty years. House. Republicans have been. Skeptical about climate change, they pointed out that legislative compromise on reducing greenhouse gas. Emissions wouldn't be easy, and it would likely be even harder in the Republican controlled Senate. Then there was the gun violence hearing before the House Judiciary committee enough, that's Eastman, a survivor of the mass shooting at Florida's Marjory stoneman Douglas high school, we have had enough of gun violence in our schools in our movie theaters are places of worship in nightclubs and restaurants on our streets and in our communities. She appealed to lawmakers to craft sensible gun legislation also testifying was college student, savannah Lindquist who said a sheet had a firearm. She might have been able to prevent her rape. I am gun owner. And I was one at the time, I even began safety training and target practice. When I was ten years old, but because of so-called commonsense gun control laws. I was left defenseless that night committee, chairman Jerrold, Nadler said gun violence is an issue that can no longer be ignored. It is evident from the energy of the crowd of this room as well as the millions of people across the country fighting for sensible gun safety laws at the. The public is demanding national legislation, but the committee's top Republican Doug Collins said democratic proposals to fight gun violence are just empty promises. Greatest. Cruelty in the world is to tell people you will help them in their situation with legislation and then try to pass off legislation. They would do nothing to fix the problems. The house is trying to begin to fix the problem with background check legislation while it is likely to pass in the house. It is equally likely to run into significant roadblocks in the Republican controlled Senate. This is Westwood One news the week in review. It.
