Aleksei, girl lead it the in Lome. Don't worry about it. Just, reach for the stars like my mom always used to tell me the most anyone can tell you is no and when I started implementing the concept whether that be from price negotiation salary negotiations, life negotiations when I was younger that sounded silly. But now I realize like the most Is No. He just find different plan ages different way. I'm curious I can hear the joy in your voice when you talk about like.

But you don't have to do that at also want my legacy to be Kansas with someone who rebuilt communities. She was the one who went back for the forgotten. In, help build them back up. Side thing if anything that that would be the most important piece. Now. Real sort of an ongoing theme that I've asked every guest here, this year, which is sort of around the theme of like Black Futures Twenty twenty. So, I'll ask you this question of using your skills to help build a more equitable future. So right now, actually pouring a lot into understanding urban design in architecture. For sabbaticals like I'm gonNA focus on all aspects of design and. Allows going up. My parents were like really on MOMS definitely into remodelling. My Dad was into doing all the work she needed done. So, always had a a big passion for architecture, but never really pursued it, and when I moved back home, I started purchasing property like in the old neighborhood I grew up in other predominantly black neighborhood. This kind of gone down quite a bit over the past decades in. So now I'm just focused on like what is the thing descent by back the block? Math focus is by that those areas in implementing design solutions. From a visual level because I do believe that the environment you grow up indefinitely impacts your perspective on life, but then also designed just from the standpoint and how do we reinfuse business in in commerce within those neighborhoods when all the storefronts and everything is shutdown. So that's what what I've been focusing on for twenty twenty. Where do you see yourself in the next five years like it's? It's twenty, twenty five. What are you working on? Oh?

Not just the industry, but also change people's perception of kind of what folks can do particularly black people in this field, and so I'm really excited to see.

"Duff, in Goal Nice. Yeah. So sapient was definitely like a pivotal point for me because it reminded me one, you can't judge every. Every agency or team by one or two bad experiences. You can definitely identify the challenges, but it's really up to you to make that experience something as beneficial to yourself in. It's possible in extreme circumstances. Yes. Get Out. But if you have the energy to keep pushing, you can really craft it into something that turns into something great like the crown and just for people that don't know sorry to interrupt. But people don't know what the Crown Act is. It's a law that prohibits. Discrimination basically based on your hairstyle, your hair texture something that I think disproportionately affects black folks particularly black women exactly, and it's like, why do we have to do this in? So that whole experience was really enlightening for me because that was also the first time I had black creative leader. I was working the Chicago office in they brought in an external team into the New York. So might team actually loaned me out to love, and that was my first time having a black crave director in a black female creative director, and it was a whole world of difference, and it really just let like left me charged up in empowered. I can do this. I can stay in the industry on my terms, a really make an impact. Now is that kind of where blacks and advertising grew out of both of those experiences. BLACKSON advertise grew out of math few weeks at my job. My first few months at my job in people still walking around me every time, the elevator. In that, they can get out on the floor I was tied in. Expiration I, guess like read the stories of those before being inside. I. Just started. I always had a passion for archival museums. Now, my parents really instilled in me of value of history in Sao. I just started collecting names of a one off black history month project. Emnid all of a sudden. I started getting emails like do I joy or do you have a chapter here in? It was never my intention to create some sort of membership platform anything like that. But I did see a big value in preserving really important narratives. Make sure those didn't disappear. In. So the following month I remember I started like focusing on women for women's history. and. Then after that, it evolved and asteroids, folks, what can I do? To, empower black what some gaps Assaf singing excels in and aside for Matt, knowing the historical impact that we've had on industry. What else is there in? So for my lands Bundy? So black professionals. Advertising tends to be the ones who don't get the right funding to go to the Syria conferences that that'll help elevate them get the necessary continuing education that will help them. I've been circumstances where I've had, you know a creative director sell when I ask, how can I improve our taught? Well, that stuff is just hard to learn like no guidance. Guidance no Eric, the General Assembly course nothing in. So as I look at what blackstone advertising is evolving into, it's still not necessarily a membership platform, but we're focusing over the past two years. We focus more on funding as opposed to just narratives, and then during this period, we just paused everything for a while and we're re shifting to actually create a board I. I wanted to have a board a couple of years ago, but it just didn't pan out the timing wasn't right. But now that there's this renewed interest in passion and I've had people reaching out now working on creating a board in my goal in hope going forward is that we maintain that mission of preserving narratives and funding, but Astrid to bring in more people. People to help share different perspectives because right now, just coming from canvases mind candice's with Kansas. Thanks. So I WANNA, make sure their voices on that platform to is really elevated and move it forward. Our starting to see a lot of brands and even some agencies like speak out about racial injustice I. think that's something we've seen within the past maybe month or so. So. But also what's happening is that employees at those brands and agencies are like wait a minute while we have your attention. Let's talk about how you're not doing well for black people here, and there's been no shortage of different initiatives out there particularly in advertising to advance black talent. I. Think the one that I saw most recently was six hundred and rising of. Of course, there's there's add color like you're on the advisory board for add color like do you see all of these separate efforts moving the needle in the industry? The one thing that concerns me is understanding the structure and proceed with those things. So we do see a lot of initiatives popping up, but I challenge everyone who's part of some sort of initiative to. To think about the long game. So it's easy to say like just for example, as advertising, it's easy to say take a statue down. But then what's next and engage like, for example, in my city, we took a statue down, but I'm working on a proposal to actually implement more diverse educational curriculum for students because I realize that people even though who the statue. Statue was no went to this part and there was a greater gas. I really challenge anyone who is just starting something right now, three look at the long game, it has some core demands. So it's great to do the shot, the things add shock value, but we want to not have a clear idea what you're gonNA create in bill that changes the system. That's what I feel. A color is really doing. Well, next year will be the fifteenth anniversary of color in since its inception in for those who don't act color is an organization that actually facilitates in champions. Talent that has long gone. Unrecognized is started out as just a wards show and it's expanded to cover people of Color, the PRI- community where expanding more programming to help support efforts around the disabled community, and so it's really important just look at the long game so you maintain the consistency in the fire and I also. Also think is really important to understand the concept of collaboration like for me, for example, for blacks in advertising there, this lattice spaces, we will not go in because there are other organizations doing it very well in I'd rather collaborate with them than trying to duplicate effort to to, I, think as we progress forward, I think what? What's being done right now with getting people organizations to release their numbers and all that it's great. But we need to also think about higher. WE'RE GONNA change the system in the long run as well. What like really keeps you motivated them inspired to continue this work. Is just seeing the young people coming in with at color. On Advisory Board at focus on the futures program. So working with that particular program as a lot of young talent to be a future, you are between one and three years into your career. In. So it really has driven my determination in everything. I do just working with each cohort every year. So seeing them come in year after year with this fire inside of them, all these unique in inventive ideas that they've implemented in their own companies being part of that. It's one very inspiring because I was a future twenty, fourteen it when I look at the classes now unlike I wouldn't have made it, I wouldn't make cut. Every year they get better and better in. So that's really what keeps me motivated is seeing that hope coming in every time, my light starts dwindle a little bit seeing that hope just hearing now have the futures program has helped, elevate them in shape them, and being a part of maintaining that community is that that's really what keeps me going. Now, you mentioned you know Kinda earlier on when I asked you about how you doing kind of throughout this pandemic. You saying that you're you're thriving, which is a great. A great feeling. What are you gotta appreciate most about Your Life. Right. Now, I appreciate the ability to be content with what I have. Personnel when I first came to the industry. You know I wasn't as idealistic or mission driven. A had some michigan-based goals, but that wasn't the end all be all, but experiencing the things that I've experienced in the industry in my life is just put me in the space of being humble in thankful and grateful for what I've been building for myself because I know everyone can't do that. Everyone doesn't have the ability to have the freedom that I have right now creatively here. Wait. I just have no repercussions. Ms Yet anybody. I'm a Christian I'm like you can't take me how. Related it doesn't..

"So that was just my first consideration or even being To funding because I'll say this I think a lot of times as black businesses. In general. We get a little apprehensive about funding, depending where it's coming from to like taken out along can be a little scary. You get off a little bit bias in, so you don't WanNa put yourself in too much debt in. So when Cohen happened all of sudden, there were these grants. In the Lacey Pe- is part just partner would be on, say the create a grant for small businesses. It just all these different grant started popping up that he didn't have to pay back and I think it made things about more less scary for me because I just have a big issue when getting the debt and then recently applied for a grant with A. Platform Popper and consummate that focuses on women owned businesses, and that was my first time really going in like live pitching my idea in front of a huge audience I was so nervous. And when I received that when it really just kind a little bigger fire under me, the start looking for more grants in the really capitalizing on this opportunity in figuring had a funnel debt into creating change through my work. So I think if anything it's also helped me refine the strategy for Tabernacle. So I would say give anyone's considering pursuing funding. Know have a clear mission. Don't rely on your website ending digital per se in terms of. Of some nephew on access literally everything I've done has been organizing all my thoughts, my goals into presentation decks in putting them in a google folder in just sending that Google folder out because people don't want to have to navigate and look for everything and I feel like we get spending has created. We get so hyped about having popping, you know website, but investors and people who are number the grant applications that he's one another facts. Facts, thanks quick and dirty, and so keeping it it like badminton pages is really great. But having some backup information, they WANNA know more found that was really helped like for creating cultivate estimated guidelines. The the requirement was like a five slide presentation, and then when I made the semi-finals round, they were like you know the cast of any else that went help us make a decision or help us guys making a decision. Let us know. Delete. And I, just went back in I looked at what I gave them and just expanded on. It a bit more clear show like the resources that I have behind me to make things happen. I think that's really important as well to show how you're equipped to execute what you're trying to do in. Also outlining what impact you've already created is really important when you're trying to secure funding, Erie, transit yourself apart from the risks now I guess aside from these two particular grants, is there other other ways that you've worked on securing funding or is this been pretty much? So, I've been in talks with the investors around the brand sequence. I'll be honest like I'm still learning about that process in. It does intimidate me a lot. I would say, really educate yourself in, educate yourself about the implications of taking certain certain pieces of funding. So we look at some of light spotify, they had their grant, but there is a big challenge with a lot of people. They were GONNA have to essentially give up their rights. So you want to be very careful, you're comfortable with that. Go for if you're comfortable in, you trust whoever you're working with go forward. But you're really trying to make sure you maintain ownership of your work and I think that's so important message for the black community. I really want to be careful in certain situations you stepping. So it pursuing any type of investment type funding, you know you'll have an expectation to deliver on. You really want to be strategic in how you'RE GONNA. Go into that because that's not a short term thing. Everything our platform as far as the cut the check in a WANNA update progress of dates. But with these greater pieces of funding, you get into the hundreds in the half million and all that stuff. It does get more complex. So you really want to be well versed in navigating net. More money more problems a VIC Louis. Problems, Roy. Need. Tools that me and I'm good. So I just keep it just at the foundation level. Now I. WanNa, Talk Just briefly about your your advertising experience, you know you prior to moving back to Texas where you're at right now you're in Chicago and you work for like a couple of the top agencies in that industry. You worked for sapient and you worked for digitize like overall. Can you tell me what those experiences were like they're very enlightening? I. Don't think there was anything else learned in school that really prepared me for what I encountered. The first job I had the digits Haas, and if anything I would say I walked away with a lot of that was actually got laid off from. But a walkway saved a lot of empowerment in a clear focus. Even go on the layoff process. It really taught me a lot about navigating the one, the corporate space because I'm from a country as wind. Wind raise put architects in grew up in Beaumont Texas. So coming into corporate. America was definitely a bit culture shock for me in dealing with, you know the bias in those spaces because no matter how hard these agencies have tried in the past is still very tainted, and you see that is very here now because while these initiatives that are popping up right in so they, I would say, politically, the agency world has a lot more work to do. But on the positive. You know it really helped me refine half presented my work I. Get a lot of you know kids reaching out semi than adults, Hong Kids region out savvy young review their portfolios and everything, and when I came into the industry, a lot of our was like. He'll pop. Flies like big pokey es lake. Yes. I was like all deep into underground pop in I made nonstop promotional pieces when I was in college and Grad, school in. So when you look at my portfolio, it was interesting in. Me Now, you know unless and. That experience actually helping me because it helps me craft how I respond to people who especially black raiders because you don't want to turn them. So someone gave me a chance in helped me refine my work refined my taste and I realized I. Really. The bigger thing is going to that first year and a half digitize in acquiring some mental awards both at the agency in other agencies, as well as I was navigating that time, it really helped me refine my case, but also helped me a lot and learn how to present in share my work in navigate clients in convince clients to believe in. Sharing with them, and then a second job at sapient was incredibly empowering. Really the only reason I left was because now my dad passed away and time just became like super urgent for me and I'll never gonNA do it so. Sapient. I had a lot of diverse leadership. My boss was a woman in honestly like having a diverse spectrum of people to work with in that leadership. It changed how I view the industry because after my first job Alexa, don't know about this. This is like hard in. It's like they don't like no one really wants to shift and people don't see the value in certain things that mean a lot to me in. So album I WANNA be here. If. I. Ever wanted like touch the industry. ACURA leave. Are Getting their. You know in having such a different experience in just a very diverse experience like the different projects I work done. I got a chance to work on dove from a conceptual standpoint in after I finished that project. You know moved on what I started actually ended up supporting what's now called the Crown Act and was a partnership with..

"Just talking about the relationship between advertising in the black community. Post. Slavery up until now. Done is in doing that it opened the door for this next pivot for Tabernacle and creating a educational arm. We got a lot of great feedback on it. A lot of great responses on it. It wasn't a plan. It was something that when I decided, I wanted to education that wasn't what I was GONNA teach initially. But seeing that need in seeing the response behind it lit a fire me to continue to work. So I'm really excited for what's next with that in just seeing those courses accumulated in just more. Ideally, you know working directly with brands and agencies to actually bring. That education in those learnings into their offices. I. Mean Education I think is always important especially when it comes to the client because I think we as business on, we wants the clients that come to us to be well informed about what it is. They want and how we can work together. But not ten, that's not the case. The clients don't know the clients may have the end results incites. Incites. But that necessarily the process to get there even when I was like taking clients in my studio I found there was a lot of education. I had to do just to make sure we were on the same page speaking the same terms, making sure that we just Kinda had the same common language as it related to the projects because I would say markups and they're like what you know. Maybe, you know what you're doing. This sounds like it's maybe not that cut and dry, but certainly, I think being able to tie in the historical aspect of like we've always been in this industry are we've always been doing design and how it ties into like the work that we're doing now I think is so important especially for people that may not look at design that way now granted, you know everything around us has been designed every experience. You know the clothes, we wear the shoes, we wear the houses apartments that we live in, etc. It's all some form of design went into that. But I don't think you know a lot of people really know. How important that is or what goes into that, and so I like that you're doing this education to to kind of make that happen to kind of fill in the gaps in a way. Yeah. Initially when we were working out like what an educational system looked like, it didn't clue like just teaching the bare basics, right. Let's just teach them the foundations because initially the key target was small town businesses, as well as cultural institutions that were on a smaller scale that might not have marketing teamwork communications manager, but had really you know great stories to share in. So initially was just give bare basics and. As we thought about it in brainstormed online, there's a plethora. Of course, they'll teach you this right, but they're slim to none that will go into detail and take you through not only the technical framework, but teach you some of the pitfalls that you can run into if you're not well. On. Just general culture. For me that's what really separates this developing program from the wrist. That's what makes me the most excited not is the brand sequence, Kinda part of this education armour's as something different through Tabernacle. We went back and forth. So me and my team were talking about it and we went back and forth to everything under this platform, the brand sequence, right. But we don't WanNa, put ourselves in one like limit ourselves, either so will have separate one off discussions off tabernacle talks in. So that as we look back what we now Kim. Like that falls under Tabernacle tops s for anybody who wants to get some sort of education around. History in design in advertising. No matter what space you're in it, help you. You'll learn something, and then the brand sequence is more targeted towards business leaders and leaders who are a part of cultural institutions I start to think about how we could develop different tracks for this and. We went back to core nets. You know creating racial equity, we started to think about the different industries that are historically. we have some sort of tension between the black community and in the industry. So restaurants all these places that you should be able to go and relax. It's always something mean. So with those programs in those courses, we go through the framework like what your customer experience journey is like. But you'll also be taken a history class on how the relationship between the black community, the lat next community, the Asian community, how of relationships having ball from historical lands in that industry as well. So that's kind of what separates tabernacle talks from the brand sequence is the brand sequences more like a really lit business school. Tabernacle talks is whatever we feel is timely. Nice now, I guess with doing all this education. How would you sort of see that I guess what's the percentage of when you look at the Business Tabernacle as as a whole? Like what percentage is this educational arm? What percentages doing client work? So I think for this year. The educational arms. GonNa. Be Public seventy percent going out because at this point, that's where we begin the most funding. That's where we feel. There's the most interest in the most need because technically still getting clients for not from our want to create this event. Only WANNA do a brand project right now, but they're like help us. So is definitely shifting gears and we WanNa pour as much love into it as possible. So from now, until the end of Q. Four were definitely porn a lot into building out the brand sequence, it might shift in might change as the platform actually gets established from launch to see Lighthouse received who knows we might end up going fifty fifty by the end of the year. But for now, the educational platform is the priority. No prouder to US talking. You mentioned wanting to talk about securing funding which. Personally I am very interested in I'm sure people are listening are super interested in that as well. So I WANNA definitely dive into that like when you look at Tabernacle, what are the next steps of growth for the studio and how do you work on securing the funding to make that growth happen? So I got my first bit of funding actually through the covid relief funds and snarl. It was really weird. Because, I'd never had a plan to even secure funding or think, I. would need I had a decent amount of savings coming in. But when Cohen hit and then like all the project starts to drop off or put on hold wait how we pay everyone in..

"I was like if there's never been a time, this is the time to go home regroup in. Make sure what I'm doing. Is Intentional. Really valuing my time. So this first year with first few months because we're still very shy you're. Has Been. Assessing wet type of client do want to service and what kind of offerings are most authentic to me. And a third part has been a lot learning. You know not just trying to skin what I've learned in average in the industry in general in that agency structure. But. Actually unloading something. That picked as a negative for the industry and making sure I didn't care into my business in high operated some. I would even say like instead of just having, you know just traditional services at another big piece out in that went into in the future now is creating original artwork. And then also just building out independent projects that clients could partner with in the long run. So it's definitely been just of a lot of allow learning unle- earning. In an adjustment in this period, because now we're shifting from client services to including educational. As. Well, to make sure that we're addressing the needs of people in our local community who might not be able to afford the full budget, you know for a larger project, but one learn in WanNa, take a more diy approach to it. So that that's been the first few months and I'm really excited her with coming up next. To say, you're taking on a lot in the first year, all of that sounds. Amazing. When I was looking up the website in doing research for this interview, I came across this huge disclaimer as soon as you go through the Senate just WanNa read part of it It starts all the part. I'm GonNa read starts off saying we are one hundred percent black owned. When working with us, you are working with a spectrum of women from the African Diaspora and a diverse group of subcontractors. When certain needs arise, we expect anyone who chooses to work with us to know that your value of us as individuals should be equal if not greater than the value of our work. That is. I. Told You I guess up and clapped when I was reading this because this is. I mean. It's amazing to hear from I think any studio especially from a black studio but. I know that I've talked to several entrepreneurs. I would even put myself in this in this kind of box to as sometimes. There's this weird abstraction when you're kinda starting out on your own to not to too sometimes not appear to black in business and I don't know at this is just a particular byproduct of the current time that we're in right now. But. I've definitely myself as well as other people I know like maybe when they start their business abstract themselves away from it. So people focused just on the work. So you won't have your name or your picture up or anything to kind of let folks know a K. I'm a black person behind this. They'll just have the work and trying to make it seem like there. This kind of opaque firm that's making all this happened. You know what I mean. Yet in a now I, think that's something that a lot of. Black, creatives struggle with initially is you don't always want to be sad with black work. Right? You don't. Be The GO-TO for everything black You Wanna be able to do all the quote, Unquote Fund stuff, the exciting projects. So you don't want to be the person they go to for the racing inclusion work. And that was something I struggle with because initially when I first came into the industry, there was a tug of war because I work on my main client work. But then when the the I department with coming in and ask for support on certain things, there was a lot of tension between my team, my leader. In in doing that work to the point where you know recommendations will be made that. No, maybe you should just transferred to the department may be you know being an art director designer? Is it for you and they couldn't separate. They wanted to separate the two, but for me in on my Flam holistically and so start cast doubt on me. Distance Myself from that work in I do too much that publicize like too much blacks in advertising because these people are looking at as I, don't know what I want to do but in. Fact it. I. Definitely. Knew what I wanted to do. A definitely had a passion for my community. And because they didn't understand it, that wasn't really on me, that was on them to get better leadership experience you know in. So I had to eventually I got laid off from job and moved on and. The. Next step. Really taught me that you know I could be, both you know that it was definitely something that was needed was pulling on projects that were targeting the African American market, and they didn't even have a black creatives. In the office to work on certain things and I started to see tangible value there, and it wasn't just creating separate work just for black communities, but also seeing how that fit into the greater ecosystem of advertising and marketing in understanding. You know when you're working on that kind of work in Madison. The whole society that you're in because the see those images of the senior narratives because they're isolated right in. So whatever they're consuming shaping their perspective in their lands, insult from there outside. Okay. This is really important. I get sidetracked from this, and if people feel like it's a negative, that's not army that's on them. It is hard because if that's your man of five, your bread and butter, it's hard to for some. It's very hard to just make that move because you have to pay the rent at the end of the day. For me when I started, Tabernacle, I wouldn't say I was Oh paid. But I was not very driven like clearly reference. You know my passion for racial equity. I wasn't for Music Okay I have my projects in the portfolio like when you see it, you see live color. You shouldn't you know this? Would you Shantou Bait? So Company in the of mine nine colorful work out actually I had like a lot of what we consider mainstream. Mainstream pieces from really big companies. But that wasn't the work I wanted to attract anymore wanted to attract more robust things that wanted to me for that was, what pushed me go in that direction as about the asks, have you seen a change in the types of of people that contact you or the kind of work that comes in since putting up that notice on the site restored seeing more people asking for training and educational support. Right after like that first week in June when things starts really get super hot a personally I'd worked with before Natalie. Kim reached out to me and said Hey. You supported me a lot on my platform. She runs a platform for young professionals coming into the AD industry call. We're next. Forward I really want to give my platform up to you. Whatever you feel is needed whatever you WANNA share I'll give you the password. It's all my stuff you can get in there. Do you want to Whitney you WANNA do inside is have passion for education. I completed a master's degree in the with the goal you know become instructor one day in. So I wanNA teach some courses. I WANNA do one course on designing a movement in just talk about creativity in print had impact. The civil rights movement in then also would like to get like a high level in show courts to blacks marriage is..

"I'm talking with candace Queen, a multidisciplinary designer and the creator of Tabernacle Studio in Beaumont Texas. Let's start the show. Right. So tell us who you are what you do. Hi, my name's candace Queen and I'm a multidisciplinary visual creative, Amran, a creative studio in Beaumont Texas called. Tabernacle. And I've worked to use design and creativity to build equity and black communities in under service communities as well. Now, one thing I've been asking everyone over the past few months as I've been recording the show is. How are you holding up during this pandemic? I'm actually really thriving initially, I would say, I was very afraid, just personal level. I have several health issues and so knowing how all the different things that were coming about with Covid, and then of course, on the business side, I, initially focused on events when I started my studio and so having all the Vance Gate canceled. It really just put me in a a minor state of panic state of panic. Myself, and once I got over that Hump in really started like absorbing all itchy last conversations with influencers in an people, I really respected and admired. It really served as a source of motivation, and then going from there started to strategize how would I come out on the other side of this a whole lot stronger in. So I'm really comfortable and proud of the pivot that I'm making right now. I'm really thankful for the extra time. I've been able to spend with my family whether. You know zoom cost because right now, the only person could actually see me a person as my sister. It's taken a turn that I didn't know unneeded. It's. Helped me in a long run? That's really good. That's good to hear that you've been kind of thriving during the time I know that I think a lot of people were really kind of panicked at first because we didn't know. How? Serious this was going to be you know things were getting locked down and different states have different levels of kind of government, some sort of government. Mandate about whether. You should stay shelter in place or anything like that. But I can see especially like for entrepreneurs, and like you said, you were initially focusing on events like kind of that. The best time of the events during a time where we're not supposed to be getting together. So it's good that you are able to make that pivot. Yeah. In Texas. So it is definitely a challenge because we tended, we tend to be the more lax in terms of addressing everything in neuro. It's starting to catch up with US holistically, but thankfully. Hermit creative lands alive is virtual. So that's been a big help and I'm also thankful that actually made a move to a small town before all this happened because it's actually made it a bit easier to navigate to think in Chicago before I. Think I've been stuck in Chicago Far Away from my family by myself, it would have been a whole nother story. Yeah I'm in Georgia right now, and certainly I, know about the lax treatment I, think we had maybe about maybe three three and a half weeks of shelter in place in like now, they've lay reopened things at the end of April and now, of course, cases of already kind of steadily been going up but. Yeah I. Know What you mean with that. What made you decide to strike out on your own and start Tabernacle. So, when I initially came to the AD industry wasn't magma plan, it wasn't. You know something strategically it out to do I became interested in designing and just exploring creativity like way back in my space aids and I grew up in oil and gas town. So that was the expectation was egos engineering medicine legal or maybe a teacher, but never you know was encouraged to pursue anything creative indefinitely, not advertising. I also grew up in a very conservative tenneco hostile household. So we actually didn't have a TV. See commercials unless I was like at a family member's house celebrity didn't know anything about advertising. But once I got to college I realize medical elective in advertising and I realized I really want to pursue that and as I begin studied I, didn't see many black people and our curriculums, and so I started to research a lot Abou-. You know historical black figures advertising one person who really inspired. Inspired, me was Carolyn Jones and she started several agencies on her own in from there Mago became GonNa, get an advertising, get jobs agency, learn the ropes, and then create my own, and my goal has always been to figure out how to use advertising in branding essentially to help shift the perception, one of black people, and then a perception we also have of ourselves in an effort to. To really stimulate you know economic success personal success, and then also look at areas have either been abandoned that really deteriorated. How can I use branding design in rebuild those areas? So that was really the foundation that birth Tabernacle I also had a really big passion for creating events that connected people from online communities in person. So growing up as a preacher's kid ahead like firsthand experience with. With navigating those connections outreach in building a community and being involved with the community of people in that really transcended into my work and what I started to gravitate toward I, love creating up experiences, creating digital communities, which evolved organization, black some advertising, and it's really just gone up from there because even now, Nitsa Covid, they're still really big need to maintain the virtual communities. So tavern. We pivoted away from just the in person experiences in creating some hope in the midst of the virtual communities and planning to hand, you know whenever we can get out of here, man, a really amazing in person experiences eventually was the first year of business could have been like so far. So I officially went into business instead of timber of last year and we. Really really.

"candace queen" Discussed on Stuff You Missed in History Class
"Including William and Thomas and that's the rocky and churches of Ethiopia in particular the complex of them but is known as lolly. Bella there there are at least two hundred rock hewn churches in Ethiopia. The oldest ones are in the tegray region and are carved from sandstone. Those date all the way back to about the fifth century this complex that lally Bella is a little newer it was excavated from volcanic rock about seven hundred years ago and the site has been in continuous continuous use. Since then today lally Bella is a deeply important religious site in Ethiopia and Orthodox Christianity so these churches are just incredible feat of engineering both in terms of the structures themselves and all of the water management. That's involved with them. And they're also connected to the overall history history of Christianity in Ethiopia which evolved very differently from Christianity in the rest of sub Saharan Africa. So today we will have a brief overview of the origins of Christianity in Ethiopia before talking about these rock churches at Lalibela from their original building to the threats that the site is facing today before we get yet to the introduction of Christianity in Ethiopia the nations of Africa as we know them today have roots in the scramble for Africa that took place in the late nineteenth century that is when European nations divided the continent up among themselves without regard for the existing nations empires political alliances. That were already. There is something that has come up on the show multiple times before The resulting national borders were really arbitrary in terms of everything from geography to existing territorial boundaries. Agrees these nations and their borders continued to evolve after the scramble for Africa but in general they also continued to group people's that hadn't necessarily unaffiliated before creating the idea of nations that didn't necessarily match up to the existing political landscape so of course that applies to Ethiopia and then in terms terms of Ethiopia in particular. That name can mean a lot of different things depending on when a person is talking about and when they were using that term a a lot of ancient writing from outside of sub Saharan Africa uses the word Ethiopia in a generic kind of way to just mean Africa in general or in particular Africa. Marcus south of Egypt ancient sources including the Christian Bible also used the word Ethiopian to describe anyone with very dark skin so in these early uses of of the word Ethiopia and Ethiopian. It's not always clear. Exactly who or where they are talking about there. Also a couple of written uses of the term that came came from what's now Ethiopia rather than from elsewhere they date back as far as the third or fourth century one of them references King of the OXO MITES and the Ethiopians. The oxy oxygen empire was in. What's now northern and irretrievable? In this wording suggests that people thought of these as two different places in the history. We're talking about today. Includes foods this same general region which at some points has also been called Abyssinia. Christianity has been present in northern Africa. Since the earliest years of the religion religion as it spread through areas that were part of the Roman Empire but in most of sub Saharan Africa. It was introduced much later. Starting with Portuguese missionaries in the fifteenth century. Three so for the most part in Sub Saharan Africa Christianity is associated with European colonialism. Ethiopia is an exception though Ethiopia's Christian Christian traditions trace back to biblical accounts including the flight of Mary. Joseph and Jesus from Herod the Roman King of Judea. Shortly after Jesus was born in the Book Book of Matthew and in some of the New Testament Apocrypha an angel appeared to Joseph and told him that Herod Plan to kill Jesus so the holy family fled to Egypt and lived there for several years. In the Ethiopian tradition. They continued into Ethiopia and they took refuge there. The book of acts in the Bible also Oh describes the Apostle Philip baptizing a eunuch from the court of candace queen of Ethiopians with that baptism happening in Jerusalem and his fourth century. A history bishop as Subbiah Caesaria wrote that this person returned to Ethiopia arriving there sometime before the apostle matthew did but like we just talked about. It's not really clear. Exactly where Ethiopia is in these accounts in terms of the introduction of Christianity as an established religion region. That goes back to the days of the Ottoman Empire also called the Kingdom of Oxfam. This umpire was established sometime between one hundred fifty. BC and fifty fifty ce and it flourished from the third through the sixth centuries because of its position on the northern Horn of Africa. Along the Red Sea this empire had extensive trading relationships with what's now Sudan Egypt and the Arabian Peninsula. It was a wealthy cosmopolitan kingdom with primary exports that included ivory in gold. The kingdom used the revenue from these exports to invest in agriculture moving the region from subsistence farming to reason cattle and export crops. The foreign merchants who visited or worked in the empire included Christians and at first Christianity was viewed in the empire as a foreign religion. Rather then as something that oxy Mites might practice themselves multiple accounts document the same basic story. About how that changed and in that story two men described described as coming from Syria or tire were shipwrecked and given employment. In the king's household. The king died while his son was still too young to take thrown and these these two men remained at court while his widow served as regent for the late king's son Zana along the way they made connections with Christian traders and merchants. Although it's not clear whether these shipwreck survivors sought them out because they were already Christian themselves or if they converted to Christianity at some point when Asana came of page the younger of the two shipwreck survivors returned home but the older noticed frontiers of tire. Travelled to Alexandria Egypt to petition. Church Patriarch TRIARC Athanassios to appoint a bishop to lead the growing community of Christians. In the Kingdom of Oxfam the Patriarch appointed from inches himself and in Ethiopia. nope he became known as Abba Salama or father piece. Abba Salama also baptized. The king marking the Royal Family's conversion to Christianity and about the a year. Three thirty Zana became the first monarch put. The symbol of the cross on coins and the capital of oxygen grew into a religious as well as the political center so the establishment of Christianity in Ethiopia was happening at about the same time as it was in Armenia which is usually noted as the first country to make Christianity the official state religion. It took another couple of centuries before Christianity was widely practiced outside of the royal family and nobility in the Kingdom of OC zoom much of that shift started with the introduction of Monasticism in about the sixth century this is traditionally described as being brought by nine saints who were refugees fleeing being religious persecution in Syria. There are still monasteries in Ethiopia that are dedicated to or trace their origins back to one of these nine saints. These monastic communities were hugely influential. In the conversion of the general public to Christianity. Although the oxygen empire had a robust trading network mark and relationships with other Christian nations it was relatively isolated from other predominantly Christian parts of the world. It's primary contact. Was the Coptic Church in Egypt. which appointed Egyptian bishops to lead the Church and Axiom in about the seventh century Muslim conquest of surrounding areas? Also cut off the kingdom's contact with most other Christian nations so for centuries the church in what's now Ethiopia didn't have formal contact with the Roman Catholic Church or the eastern Orthodox Churches Churches as they evolved at all consequently the Orthodox Christianity that developed in the Horn of Africa is unique with rituals and beliefs and practices that are specific to bat region. And sometimes have more in common with Judaism than with other Christianity. The oxygen might empire went into decline around the seventh century but by that point in Christianity was established enough among the population that it survived the end of the political dynasty. The historical record is a little bit fuzzy on the years that followed but the next people documented is coming to power Kush speaking zag way people in about the eleventh century. They moved the capital South. From Oxfam to Rojo One was King Lalibela which brings us to the Rock Hewn Church complex. That is named for him and we will get to that after sponsor..
"candace queen" Discussed on Knowing Faith
"Yeah and what I'm saying is I think there's actually real magic things spiritual things that are real somebody pulling card out of their sleeve. Oh you've that is meant to deceive people and it's dark or evil. That's that's what I'm trying to say. Is that what you would say. Yes yeah and I think we also reading. Jen disagrees with us. I don't know if I disagree but I don't know that this story is showing US someone who was doing legitimate magic. It's an wholesome and magician. Yeah he practiced magic. I mean I don't think see. This is where when we think practice magic we think David Copper. He's like look at this donkey on that he puts a blanket over and he's like what it's not there any longer. I think this is probably a guy who is practicing. Some sort of devonish is he's doing some sort of future Izza if he's he's probably trying trying to. He's probably performing healings. Certainly he's the power of the laying on of hands. He wants that so that makes me think okay. There's some sort of implementation with people that he's probably already involved in there could be a lot of of similarity to what he sees the apostles doing. Yes that's what I'm trying to a healy healings in Powell. WHO's doing it from a different power? You're skeptical. I don't care like I. I don't I don't actually care what the answer is because the end result for those who are watching him it doesn't matter people perceive it to be supernatural than I don't really care. One of my passions is Bible Literacy. I will investigate the details of the more like I don't care. It's one of those things for the purposes of the story. I don't think the story is overly concerned with making that point. You don't think there's a difference between I think there's a huge difference between leading people stray through actual darkness versus. Just we'll she does too right. Okay lead people astray through actual dark. There's a difference between that and leading them into genuine power of he's saying whether you're a charlatan or someone he's really dealing then don't know I guess I guess what we're agreeing on. We don't know there's no way we can know what he's doing here. Deception leads to darkness. Either way right and these people are being fooled. Or whether there's something demonic going on correct yeah that's people full people are probably doing something demonic whether they're consulting spirits or not and he must have been persuasive because it seems it's like people are listening for sure people are paying attention with this great again you can say that got some clips. I tell you what he's doing. He's making Simon Great again. Who definitely wants people to White assignment want this power Milwaukee. I mean so that he sees them perform this. Do we want to pause here and talk about what's happening. Well I was GonNa say I think that the the question here is not so much about whether he he is dealing in the supernatural or not. It's more it has more to do with once you become a believer. You're still carrying around baggage. That's what the point of the story is. That's why I say I don't care. We're told that it's it's keeping the main point of view. There's several conversions like that. There's a convergence reassuring for you because we all have old magic. We don't want to let go. I mean he had this power he certainly seems to have had a power personality associated with this. which which you know once you become a believer that that I'm using the term charismatic as a descriptive. Not like with a spiritual sense but like in that ability to draw people in Is something that you don't always recognize how to utilize in ways that are honoring on the other side of conversion. And I think that's what we're seeing there arras. He's still thinking. How can I leverage these kinds of things for personal gain because that's been his Mo.? Yeah and I always read this passage with a real sober mindedness of how often in ministry environments we try to take the way that we thought power should be executed demonstrated prior. Let's go coming to Christ into the execution of the offices or duties or responsibilities privileges of the church leadership there. which is I mean? Let's just make this story. I mean if I could be maybe a bit crass here. Let's make it where it's not Simon to magician but he's a CEO Right and he sees the apostles doing something and he's like cool. I want to be able to do that and I kind of want to be able to do it on the terms. I've learned so that we think that this magician to like Execution of the power of Christ is like wow. That's really strange. But how often do we justify the same sort of approach with things that seem to totally. I think we don't recognize that. The the pattern of sin since the garden is one of powerbrokering like everyone is a powerbroker powerbroker on the other side of the fall. We're looking for ways to leverage power over and against one another. That's what happens without him. Even said of being collaborators they become competitor's they're trying to leverage power against one another. And so what he's doing here's he's found a way to leverage power. You know for for an attractive person. They have the power of physical appearance that they can leverage for advantage and For the person with money that's a form of power for the person with responsibility or authority. That's a form of power. There are people who are Extremely likable have have a have a certain power and so all of these are ways that you don't have to you don't have take how Simon is operating and CEO. He clearly had a problem with magic. When we all have a problem with leveraging power? He's still searching for control on the other side of of his his salvation. Absolutely right Sir Simon. The Magician is so we see this martyr. Stephen we see I'm the magician And then we encounter missionary story all the way there I did. I was definitely going to not let that slide Well that and I just love the Story Korea Phillip And so with the little time we have left remaining. Let's just look at this story so you have fill up. Who is also a deacon right was installed Ordain whenever are we WANNA call at the same time with Stephen and the others and so it says the angel of the Lord in Acts Eight Verse Twenty six angel. The Lord said to Philip Rise and go toward the south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza this is a desert place and he rose and went and there was an Ethiopian Eunuch official of candace Queen of the into was in charge of all her treasure eight come to Jerusalem to worship and was returning versus not in the spirit said it felt. Go over and join this sharing. So Philip goes over to him and he goes is he sees these reading from Isaiah is do you understand what you're reading. And he said how can I unless guides me. And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him and the passage was this passage like like a sheep led to the slaughter like a lamb before cheers silence so he opens his mouth in his humiliation. Justice was denied him who can describe his generation for his life is taken get away from the earth in the unit says to fill up about whom asked you just the prophets. Say this about himself or someone else and it says then. Phillip opened his mouth and beginning with this scripture. He told him the good news about Jesus that goes on from here for the Philip to ask. Hey I want to be baptized. Like look there's water here. Why not advertise me? And it says when they came up out of the water the spirit or or carried Philip away and the UNIX saw him no more and went on his way rejoicing so this is a pretty incredible story. That's a great story. And so maybe a few questions here with Philip flipping the Ethiopian. Eunuch is this. Is this a example of like descriptive or prescriptive in the book of acts though they angel Lord hey go out to the desert right and then the spirit of the Lord her The ESPN Lord. Carey's Philip away right like these are some things that do you seem extraordinary. Yeah that's right a question I've always had. I don't have an answer for it as why didn't if the spirit of saying these things to fill up. Why didn't he just helped the Ethiopian? I understand I say you know what I mean. It seems like a long way around. But it's not right like with the thing here is like just kind of hanging out in his chariot prophet. Isaiah like how can I understand unless somebody explained it to me right and then you have this background story of like Philip being guided and directed by the spirit and in this chariot into eventually depart is God is using the means that he set up to service church elders. There's some deacons. He's using the normal means of his church. The spirit is in a supernatural way using the people who do he has ordained into take the good news of Jesus Christ forward. Yeah let's get what seems like on a superficial reading to be way outside of ordinary. It's actually pretty. It's exactly what we have just heard about acts chapter six seven eight. God is setting up his church to proclaim the good news of Jesus. Whether it's through Stephen or through Philip Dwell on what's what we're seeing begin to pivot so what. What have we seen? We've seen that. The Gospel has gone to the Jews. And then we see that it's not just the Hebrews. It's also the Helena and now what are we seeing here. Some guys here from Ethiopia and we were not good with with maps and we lack natural curiosity. But if you Google the distance this guy has come over twenty five hundred miles why. He's making pilgrimage to the temple and because he is a eunuch. Guess what you can't go in so he's come all of this distance and I assume you would have known that you know if he knew enough to come this far but he is still made the journey and So he is not just a picture of the gentiles. He's a picture of all. All who have seen themselves or have been have been characterized as not able to gain access to the presence of God and yet the spirit. It himself directs Philip to go to this man. It is a tender and gentle story and Yeah I kind of love it you know. This is not related to the story at all but This story has taken on added significance for me. I over the last five years. I had been sharing the Gospel with a guy in Richardson. I live who had become a dear friend and We had I'd invite him to say the Bible with me to make a long long story short He had gone to visit his family in Bangkok and then he returned to when he returned he a Bible that I I had given him years ago that he had never really been interested in picking up. He was like had brought that Bible with me to Bangkok. And I really don't know why and he was like but I think I want to read the Bible with you can. Can we get together and read the Bible so we read the Bible and then All not all we in all seriousness. What did you re I just honestly? We started genesis and said okay. Great so he two and a half hours together over coffee and just let me walk you through the story..

Dot Com there you go get Roman dot com. You can be breath. We're going to lose that sponsorship now. That's great you don't this go out and show like folks from Montana folks from New York folks from Florida. You'll be real hard on the south and the fly over states rural derogatory towards things but let's go talk to those folks and see what they have to say and turns out probably pretty reasonable and it's the thing I've learned through all of my conversations with people all over the world in conflict zones everything else. Everybody hates cancer. Everybody loves her kids and want something better for them. You know most. Everybody's just trying to figure out how to get a little better even if they're loaded. They're trying to figure out how to do a little better. Whatever that is they do yeah so I just want to illustrate that redneck. Is Everywhere everywhere all over for the planet. I've seen it. You've seen it yeah. It's crazy go to Nigeria. They run those power lines to the poll. Wrap it around. Go go to the next one and there'll be six thousand wires up redneck everywhere in Iraq. We would talk to those guys like how many kids ask the the former dad and he's like fifteen. What are their names. Oh that's his redneck as you get you. It really is we were down in hundred villagers. Go and we asked village chief there. We said what's the biggest need in the village. WHAT CAN WE DO FOR HOUSTON. We need a TV yeah and he goes because we can't stop having babies something to do with this is so true like all throughout Iraq and everything else I would say what's the simplest stupidest first thing we can solve right now. It was never like build us a big multi million dollar something it was the simplest thing like the road over there as rutted. If we could fix that we would stop stop having to go to go to fix our tires. You know so it's just the simplest things. I can remember our friend Kathleen Madigan. WHO's an amazing comedian? She does this bid about going over with the USO and the general wanted to sit down and kind of she said it was me and it was kid rock and it was Lewis Black and Kellie pickler and she said he wants to go over all this stuff that they're doing over. There and it's like Kelly didn't even know what country they were in. She thought they were in Arizona. Clicking Sandy Indian. It's hot where our way she does this bit about like yeah. We're over. We're building this infrastructure and these schools. They were doing this for healthcare at this clean water in over here and she's like well. Maybe next CAJAL INVADE DETROIT but now it's it's. It's you know that's the thing is is you go in there and it's at the end of the day man the end of the day. It's all about doing what you can do. Yeah simple things everyday life you. You don't have to be in Iraq or Afghanistan do it. Though you can be in Detroit you can't presume to improve the condition of someone you don't understand or bother to understand who they are where they come from right and that's that's what I try to do is like help us all understand the condition of people and it turns out. We're all kind of the same doing the same kind of things at the same struggles and mostly want to be left alone. You know let me do what I'm doing what you're doing and if you could help me help me. This one little spot all right help me. What do we do to make this podcast bigger and better better and they will do bigger. I love what you're doing. I mean get bigger studio. Check yeah. We're we're doing booze on the wall. Check on the wall. Yeah isn't is in the glass. Yeah I think you guys are doing all the big things you know. It's just gotta be small stuff. Well you know and I say that I'm fortunate if like I said I started this podcast. I you know sitting at my kitchen table and I I was blessed enough to have good people talented. People creative people capable people to come alongside longside me and helped me make into something better so I take no credit.

"Right. So why the pay attention because they actually think Jesus or type of Jesus. And they pay attention to him. Because for a long time he had amazed them with his magic when they believed Philip. As he preached. Good news about the kingdom of God. And the name of Jesus Christ member. We talked about the name early on that again, but I want you to notice when it when it says that the name of Jesus Christ. They were baptized, both men and women now pas there. What, what have we got so far Simon is what they believe Simon to be, who the messiah and Philip shows up and talks about the real messiah. What happens next people are being saved. Oh, think of the story, why would they even mention this part couple things Simon, he's not the real aside? Let's start there Philip representing the messiah shows up and things change all of a sudden, and then we're not done yet. Look at the next verse in verse thirteen. What does it say, even Simon himself believed that is the biggest blow that you can take. 'cause yes, Samaritans. God bless you. But you know what that wasn't the messiah this is and the one you guys used to call great, right? Or L right in Hebrew, isn't L. It's not God. In fact. At the moment he hears it. He ends a believing talk about conquer right? So even Simon himself believed. So here's a weird moment guys because I've always looked at the Simon guy as this jerk. How dare you, you know, who do you think you are? That's just the way I looked at the sky, right? He's he does magic right in the story here. So okay, going even signed himself, believed and after being baptized he continued with Philip. So did you guys even realize that Simon believed but also got baptize? What does that say this guy actually believes he really does doing all this? He's making a public show of it. Why would he do that? And seeing signs and great miracles performed. He was amazed. Now when the apostles at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God. They said this them, Peter, and John, why don't they did that here in John? While they know what's up and dude Samaria like Samaria. Why did you go to Samaria? All right. While Peter and John while you go and check what's going on. That's, that's all that is Peter, and John. Let's send them. Because they'll be able to tell if this is God or if it isn't, that's what we wanna know is God or not Samaria is not a good place. They were our enemies, right? All right. So Peter and John. They're on their waivers fifteen who came down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit for he had not yet fallen on any of them, but they had only been baptize in the name of the Lord. Jesus. So, so that's an interesting thing they're kind of signed up for us as believers being ties in in Christ is a part of it. But the rest of it is being baptized in the Holy Spirit. All right. And that's why they're going to lay on the hands to receive the Holy Spirit case. So that, that is part of any, any Christian, you know, any, any believers walk, is that not only do you receive get baptized, but you also want to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. And that's the whole acts one at you'll receive power idea, then they laid their hands on them. And they received the Holy Spirit there. It is. Now, here's Simon again now when Simon saw that the spirit was given through laying on of the apostles hens, he offered them money. Oh, you dummy. Simon come on dude. So think about a guys that this is the guy at least speak for myself. This is the guy always beat up. All right. Simon idiot. First of all, you, you're a magician or are you a magic. And now you're trying to offer money for the Holy Spirit. You fool, you idiot. That's, that's me thinking out loud. I also forgot that part about. He also believed. And he was also baptized. Now, think about it noth-. Let's think of it in today's terms, let's say a brand new person comes in the let's say they were into witchcraft. Let's just get crazy. All right there into witchcraft, and they come in here and they say, I believe, and they go in here and they get baptized. Do you think their brain is, is has has even caught up to the spirit? No, they're still thinking that the they're old way. They just got baptized. They just came out there. Still dripping. What give a second? And what do we do? Oh man. How dare you would? You think you're doing Peter, Peter. He's not wrong. Let's let's keep reading watch. How Peter handles this is very important. So team saying gimme this power. So he. Offers them Simon offers money, right? Saying gimme this power also. So anyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit. Why would he say that because he's still Simon, I'll because you receive the spirit doesn't mean you're not you're not you anymore. Okay. God hasn't finished washing you yet. Fact, he hasn't been started with the sky yet verse twenty in here. Here's that line over the verse the Peter set to him may mayor silver parish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God, what's the gift about Holy Spirit? You thought you could obtain the Holy Spirit with money, basically. How dare you who do you think you are? You've neither parts nor lots in this matter now, this, I wanted to take a second extra couple seconds on this. 'cause right there you have neither partner lot in this matter. Meaning you're not part of the ministry. You're not part of us right now. That's way different than remember acts five and a nice afire. They do something and instant death happens. Simon offers money for the Holy Spirit. But he doesn't die. What's what's that all about? Because of the high handed sin that we were talking about high handed. I handed sins remember that big difference? It looks like it's real simple. Zafira it was their intention intention. They were doing it on purpose where Simon this guy here he just got baptized heat doesn't know any better, but he still gets verbal. You know, verbal beating if I could say like that, so you're not you have no part, nor lot in this matter for your heart is not right. Your intentions are bad. All right. That's what he's telling him before. God. Now look at twenty two what is mine starts off with a word. What is your start off with a specific word repents? See this powerful. I mean again, this is just Gary speaking, I was through Simon out. Forget the sky, you know, how dare you offer money. But wait a minute. Peter tells him. No. How dare you? But the next verse the next sentence, what is say, you better repent, see this is important for us as believers to understand the new what we call a baby Christian. The baby Christian isn't going to know any better, even if they're into witchcraft, or I which we are against I'm against are thought of God. Let's go, let's go to an extreme. If a wit of. A which shows up in here. Right. And their saved you can't expect them to, to know what to do. They'll, they'll probably still bring their sage in here, you know, making it up. I don't know. Give them a break. All right. You're allowed to rebuke in, in a good way. You know, it's gonna make sense. All right. You can also give them a chance Heyman. Don't do that. You basically repent. Don't don't do that anymore. All right. Don't do that. So that's what he does. You're not part of this ministry if you're going to do that is what he says, so repent therefore of this wickedness of yours and pray to the Lord that if possible the intensive your heart may be forgiven you. So this guy gets a chance to repent where twenty three pricey that you are in the goal of bitterness and a bond of iniquity. Calling about Simon answered we what he says, what is it come back with pray for me to the Lord that nothing of what you have said, may come upon me meow, no expert, but that's a repentance, right? He I think he's realizing, oh man. Whoops. Nullum dumb mistake when an idiot I was. Right. You can't by the Holy Spirit guy, you just can't do it. But at least he's realizing it. Okay. So this is what happens with, with a brand new Christian baby Christians. They don't know anything. All right. You can't expect a Christian to even. Try steak no one. They had testified in spoken the word of the Lord, they returned to Jerusalem, preaching of the gospel, too many villages of the Samaritans. That's a, that's a big deal. Man. That's a big deal Samaritans or the supposed to be the enemies and they're going there. And then all the way who do. We see Simon the guy they call great and the one they call great aka L, right? Or you know ends up believing talk about a victory, man. So that's part of the proof for the reader. Like, oh, my gosh. What would you go to the Samaria? Oh, wait. What? You guys that guy convert it. Are you serious? Wow. God's really moving not that they would have taken from this. I can't believe what I'm reading this is amazing. That's what they would have taken away because it is. It's absolutely amazing. All right. Verse twenty six now, an angel of the Lord sets Philip rising, go toward the south of to the road, that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza this desert place. So notice have you guys noticed it's just places after places after places after places? Why? Because that word. Needs to get out there that fire that they experienced, you know, metaphorically speaking. Right. It needs, it's got a spread yet, even to Samaritan so that Samari member Judea to some, you know. And now whereas going it's going down south it's going down south. Right. Okay. And he rose win verse twenty seven there was an Ethiopian, something kind of funny, if it's funny, but interesting kind of threw me off I the ops, I the ops is the word if the opium. The main were angry I helps means bird and in this case, it's icy ops man. So it's, it's like a burn man or burn face. That was weird. Like that's kinda today that would be called racist. Right. You can't say stuff like that. But I'm just all you guys onto say what it is. But that's interesting. That, that's the idea of the opium, actually comes. Well, at least with with Greek is from thoughts, which is burnt, the idea burn. They're, they're classifying it in the way that they can see it. So let's okay. Oh man. Now we have to do this away. They weren't racists. Okay. They're not r-. Racists, oughta racial thing. They're just explaining what they see. All right. All right. So okay, so and he rose and went, and there was an Ethiopian, a eunuch accord official of Candace, Queen of the VIP ins. So this, this is this is a higher up guy. Right. The, the opium, a eunuch. And that's, that's a typical thing we've seen in the Old Testament. When the are eunuch, you work for the house, call mystery, but the Royal ministry right, the royals. Right. You work with the royals typical. So, so interesting. This is another case, where you see the, the upper echelon the uppers the top tier get the word of God. That's an important thing how, how better to spread this word than top down. Another instance of that Queen of the idiots who was in charged of all her treasure. You guys I'm sure it will maybe somebody heard about the ark of the covenant rights supposed to be somewhere in somewhere that down there. I don't know. It isn't if let's say it isn't, but there's a lot of stuff. They'll try to connect. Versus like this more, they'll say like this Queen of the opens has some sort of connection with the Queen of Sheba and all the anyway, it's totally side side note.

"Really? Brad paisley and his wife are changing lives. The secret of significance. This is Dr Jim Dennison's the daily article podcast for Monday, April. Eight twenty nineteen Keith urban one entertainer of the year at last night's academy of country music awards Thomas Rhett, and Casey, Musk's one male and female artist of the year. But in my opinion, the most significant achievement in country music came earlier in the week, Brad paisley and his wife, Kimberly broke ground on a national grocery store that is unlike any I know customers will walk through the aisles selecting fruit vegetables, cereal and other groceries then they will check out at the register. However, no money will change hands. The Paisley's partnered with Belmont university, a Christian university and Brad's alma mater, building the store next to the schools ministry center. They hope to serve three thousand impoverished people a year. They're Christian faith is unclear display in a way that will impact lives far beyond Nashville. Many years ago. I attended a church growth conference led by Rick Warren at saddleback church in California. His approach was not at all what I expected. I assumed Rick would talk about his churches leadership structure ministry organization in marketing strategy, instead he spent most of the conference discussing the importance of spiritual health for himself his leadership team and their members. He explained his passionate focus on spirituality, this way, all healthy things. Grow plant, a tree in your backyard. Water and fertilize it protect it from bugs and other adversaries, and it will grow. It's designed that way by God. If we're looking for a way to impact our world for Christ, a strategy that will help our churches and personal ministries be more effective in our secularized culture. Let's take Rick's advice. Let's focus on our spiritual health. And then let's watch healthy things grow as we impact our culture with God's love. I'm reading through the book of acts in my personal bible study and was greatly encouraged this weekend by story. We don't discuss much in acts aid an angel directs Philip to the road south from. Jerusalem to Gaza, the Greek word for south can also mean, noon, the more likely translation, in my opinion. Everyone knew that the road to Gaza. Let south God sent Philip to that road at noon during the heat of the day a time when hardly anyone traveled it. It was a desert road sparse. And forbidding. We often wonder at the time why God sends us where he does. But our father usually shows us acts eight twenty seven says and he arose in went, and there was an THEO paean a eunuch a court official of Candace Queen of the GOP who was in charge of all her treasure. He had come to Jerusalem to worship this man would be our Treasury Secretary today with his signature on our currency. His conversion would carry the gospel to the highest reaches of Ethiopian, culture and influence the Lord had already gone head of Philip as he goes before us the had been reading from Isaiah fifty three the best text in the entire Old Testament to us in presenting the atoning, death and love of the Lord Jesus. Then the man asked Philip to explain the text making it easy for him to share the good news about Jesus. The unit believed was baptized and went on his way rejoicing early tradition. Identifies him as the first Christian missionary to Ethiopia all this. Because Philip allowed the Holy Spirit to lead him where he had no plans to go when we follow. God. He always goes before us. He will prepare the heart of every person he intends us to reach his gospel. Then he will give us the worst to say and the works to share. We're God is most at work around the world. The common denominator is that. As people are dependent on his spirit, usually because they have no other option. I've witnessed Cuban Christians praying fervently for the power of the spirit, and then testifying to their faith with incredible courage, and passion, I know spirit powered former Muslims who risk their lives to tell Muslims about Jesus. And the charismatic movement is transforming churches across central and South America. As we watch reports of declining church attendance and Christian commitment in America is our prosperity impeding, our dependence on the Holy Spirit is self sufficiency. Grieving the spirit and hindering his power. If all healthy things grow. Oh, how is our health? We can expect the enemy to do anything to keep us from being submitted daily to the Holy Spirit. He knows how foundational this relationship is to us. And those we influence by contrast. The Holy Spirit urgently wants an intimate transformational relationship with us as Craig Denison rights. And I fifteen the spirit longs to reveal how near he is to you. He longs to make you more aware of his manifest presence. He wants to lead you speak to you. Phil, you satisfy you heal you set you free and empower you. He longs for your heart to find freedom insecurity in him. He longs to be your best friend companion and teacher. So Satan wants you to depend on yourself today. God wants you to depend on his spirit. The deciding vote is yours.

"Her first scripture lesson you comes from the book, I the Salone unions chapter two beginning at verse one yourselves. No brothers and sisters that are coming to. You was not in vain. But though, we'd already suffered and been shamefully mistreated at Philip as you know, we had courage in our God to declare to the gospel of God in spite of great opposition for appeal does not spring from deceit or impure motives were trickery. But just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the message of the gospel, even so we speak not to please mortals, but to please God who tash our hearts, and as you know in his God is our witness. We never came with words of flattery or at the pretexts for greed, nor did we seek praise for mortals weather from you or from others though. We might have made demands as possible of Christ. But we were. Gentle among you, like a nurse tenderly caring for children. So deeply did we care for you that we were determined to share with you, not only the gospel of God, but our own selves because you had become very dear to us. This is the word of our Lord. Beautiful text. That is our second. Lesson comes to us from acts chapter eight. We pick up the story of Philip and his ministry at I twenty six let's listen again to the word of our Lord. Then an angel of the Lord said to fill up get up and go toward the south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza, this is the wilderness road. So he got up and went now there was an Ethiopian eunuch accord official of the Candace Queen of the GOP ins in charge of her entire treasury. He had come to Jerusalem to worship and was returning home seated in his chariot. He was reading the prophet Isaiah. Then the spirit said to fill up go over to this chariot and join it. So Philip ran up to it and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah. He asked do you understand what you're reading here? Replied, how can I unless someone guides me and he invited Philip to get in and sit beside him. Now the. Passage of scripture that he was reading was this like, a sheep. He was led to the slaughter and like a lamb silent before sheer. So he does not open his mouth in his humiliation Justice was denied him who can describe his generation for his life is taken away from the earth. The unique ask Philip about whom may I ask you does the prophets say this about himself for about someone else? Then Phillip began to speak and starting with this scripture, he proclaimed to him the good news about Jesus. And as they were going along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, look, here's water. What is to prevent me from being baptized. He commanded the chariot to stop and both of them fill up and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him when they came up out of the water the spirit of the Lord snatched Philip away the eunuch saw him. No more. And went on his own way rejoicing, but Philip found himself in his Otis. And as he was passing through that region. He proclaimed the good news to all the towns until he came to Caesarea. Men and let us pray. Thank you so much for the gift, you have given to us the gift of this day, the privilege of worship, we would pray now that the words of my mouth and the meditations of our hearts together might try and acceptance in your site for it is you and you alone we desire to please through Christ. Our lord. A man. Several weeks ago. I was asked to make a video explaining the history of the Christian church for our confirmation class. I was happy to do. So it's a presentation I often give to iron choirs classes of new members. So my goal is always to tell two thousand years of church history in a short enough period of time that I don't lose the attention span of our new members much less a group of teenagers. So Dave straighten I met here in the sanctuary, and I started off birth of Jesus ministry of Jesus cross resurrection. Then all stories told in the gospels the day of Pentecost, the giving of the Holy Spirit and the growth of the church is told in the book of acts years of Roman persecution and the dispersion of new believers around the Mediterranean basin. The emperor's Constantine's conversion in three twelve AD Christianity becoming the official religion. Of the Roman empire. The persecution ending the church councils writing the apostles creed and the nice scene creed the growth of the monastic movement where then we get to the split of the church east and west in ten fifty four AD, and I am on a roll. And then we come to the time of the crusades this dark and dismal time. And I have nothing to say. It's hard to imagine. The missionary zeal during the time of the crusades that caused the good news of the gospel. The proclamation of the saving grace of Jesus Christ to be so denigrated and disfigured that it becomes a genocide of conquest rather than of conversion the word of God, literally became a two edged sword as people's were massacred and lands were conquered in the name of Christ in his church that period of history is surely a stain on the witness of our Lord to the world. Now, I don't want to exaggerate this point in any way. But in recent weeks as we have been talking about the role of evangelism and faith sharing as we've been reading together. Rob Trump's book living the gospel in the gray. I continue to have images of examples of evangelism techniques. That seem to resemble more closely the crusader methods than they do the sharing of the really good news of God's love for us in Christ. Conversations that become debates and arguments to be waged in one and people become objects to be conquered or manipulated rather than wayward children who need to be shown the love of God. Perhaps you like I can think of instances when we have seen evangelism. And again evangelism comes from the Greek word you on galleon, which means to tell good news. We've seen examples of how evangelism gone wrong has been done so poorly. Oscar, I know told a story from his own life last week when experience.
