Why Lancaster, PA became the refugee capital of America

"About two years into their. Stay at a Kenyan refugee camp after fleeing Somalia Mustafa Nor and his family found that they had been selected to be resettled in the US and initially. They had mixed feelings so when the country selects you. You're notified two years in that. Hey you know. United States House elected you on. Dad has in the refugee camp. That always comes as a great news or bad news because because the United States takes the longest to process anybody to have a harder process. They have hottest glued to need how to bug run checks and he's right the vetting process for refugees coming to the US intense. There's multiple interviews and background checks and security checks by different branches of the US government fingerprints tests for contagious diseases. It can take years from. His family took a decade but eventually as with other refugees who make it through the whole process. The family was paired with a resettlement agency. Mustafa and his family were paired with Church World Service. Which has a branch in Lancaster? It's nonprofit that received funding from the federal government and from private donors and it sets up refugee families with a few months of housing some counseling services food and clothing and then they tried to Find your job right away because once you around here you have to start a pain. Bake your bill for the government for bringing you a lot of people don't know this but yes refugees payback the US government for the cost of flying here from Asaf big family. Those were not cheap. Flights is around eleven to twelve hundred per person so family of ten ten people. You get a bill of almost ten thousand bedrooms. He stuff says he found Lancaster City and Lancaster County unexpectedly welcoming to his refugee family and to other refugee families and that in fact is the city's reputation in two thousand sixteen before the trump administration started limiting how many refugees could come to the US. The number of refugees were resettled in Lancaster. City hit a peak of four hundred and seven as a share of the city's population. That's almost twenty three times more refugees resettled than in the US as a whole which is why. The city was labeled the refugee capital of America by the BBC. So why is Lancaster able to resettle so many refugees? One reason is resources. For example Church World Service. The Resettlement Agency is able to partner with local organizations to provide services beyond just the basics beyond the initial housing and food and clothes for example. There's a nonprofit that provides healthcare to refugees English language tutors to school district and universities to help with education employment programs and companies that will actively try to hire refugees and train them. Sheila Masto Prieto runs the Lancaster Office. Church World Service and she says that all these resources make it possible for Lancaster to accept even the hardest cases. Like when there's a huge refugee family of ten or fifteen people or when a refugee has a medical issue and can't work or if a refugee only speaks a relief obscure foreign language. There are no cases in this area that we that we would refuse so we do have the option when a cases sent us by our national office to say they basically they're saying will you accept this case so we always do and it's not just tangible resources. There's something else that has given Lancaster the ability to absorb refugees. Its history starting in the early eighteenth century members of the Mennonite and Amish churches were fleeing persecution in Europe and started moving to Lancaster. The county still has a huge amish and mennonite population and the value of welcoming people in need of a new home has remained. Steve Note a professor at Elizabethtown College spoke with us at the Mennonite historical society which features exhibits about the Amish Mennonite history of Lancaster. Well in the in the late nineteen seventies and early nineteen eighties for example Mennonites in this area were Were deeply involved in resettlement of refugees from Southeast Asia from from Vietnam Cambodia Laos And that's that was motivated both by No Christian humanitarian concerns and also concerns that As mennonites as conscientious objectors pacifists and in fact Mustafa's own experience right after arriving. Lancaster reflects this. My first job was I worked with the Amish. I used to work for a convenient. That build garages and sheds so used to install windows. He did well enough at this job installing windows for these sheds that was hired by a company called E. Impact Marketing which provides marketing for amish companies in the area in which train Mustafa in web design. Mustafa would end up becoming their head web developer. And then he started thinking more broadly he started a company called bridge which is a website where people can sign up to have dinner in the home of a refugee family in the area. The refugee family will cook the meal and share their story and the family will also said a fever. The dinner which it gets to keep bridge charges a service fee which is how it makes money. Mustafa original pitch for bridge one. A business plan competition which provided the funding to get. It started. My vigil is our GONNA instead of instead of free training or given a new skill. Why not give them a platform where they can on an income with what they already know would not have which is their culture under food. Adamos AMAC is Lancaster based economist. And he says it. Refugees and immigrants contribute to a local economy by helping its population grow and thereby giving new businesses more people to sell to customers and also people hire employees. Adam says it will stop the story also demonstrates some more subtle ways that immigrants and refugees contribute a moving to neighborhoods it. Others might find less desirable and they start interesting businesses and they really contribute to the diversity of consumer experiences downtown in downtown Lancaster. You can eat at Vietnamese place. You can be at a Nepalese place. There's just a huge amount of variety missed offices. His company is making money and he even has plans to expand into neighboring your county and the ads. That historian shows the symbiotic relationship between the Lancaster economy. And it's refugees and it goes something like this. The success of the economy makes it possible for the city to offer resources to these refugees. So that they can prosper and they're prospering feeds right back into the success of the Lancaster economy. So what happens? One hundred fifty person comes here to community. This community has done a very good job of harnessing that refugee person as a whole from employment to training to job opportunities to enterpreneurship training. So I I. I went through those different of coming here. Receiving welcome Ho Ho finding a stable job and then developing a skill which is the development Web Development. Are they using that skill to create a company? Now so it's a great circle on its own. It's something which is very. I don't WanNa say unique. What's special about Lancaster?

Those stories led to the rise of the hashtag nuns to in a letter of resignation to the pope, the editorial board wrote that they believe there is a Vatican campaign to discredit them and put them under the control of men, and we have NPR's tovia Pohjola on the line.

Well, this women Church World is the monthly supplement to the official. Vatican daily lucid Vittorio Romano Lucia scatter FIA created it seven years ago in her final editorial. She said that you editor of the main of Vatican daily who arrived in December had published articles in the main paper that were in contrast with the supplements editorial line, and then she wrote an open letter to pope Francis. Saying we are throwing in the towel because we feel surrounded by a climate of distrust and progressive de legitimize ation, she added it seems there's a return to the antiquated an arid custom of choosing women consider trustworthy from on high under the direct control of men, but the new editor of the oh man on the moon denied the charges that he tried to interfere in the women's supplement. What more should we? About the founder of this magazine who speaking out here. She's a history professor at robe university. A mother and calls herself a feminist. Although she follows the official line. She she opposes for example, the idea of women priest, but you know, the supplement has shaken the male dominated world of the Vatican by introducing the women's perspective and dealing with what we're always taboo topics last year. They published an article denouncing the servitude of nuns to clergy. The it said they work for close to nothing to cook and clean for bishops. And cardinals. And recently, she was asked about the pope's description of the church is a woman, she said Scalia said we don't want to be turned into metaphors, but be recognized and listen to you've talked to her right as part of your reporting. Yeah, we talked about her article last month that created an uproar it denounced the sexual abuse of nuns by priests. And the the fact the audit added trauma of rape nuns who were forced to have abortions or become outcasts when they give birth to a child. She told me she had spoken to hundreds of nuns from all over the world. And the article sparked the hashtag nuns to discussion and prompted pope Francis. To acknowledge that abusive nuns by clergy is a problem and out to do something about it. What happens now, I mean to this magazine in this this whole issue with with his resignation? Well, the new editor pledged that the magazine would continue but in the metoo era. This is another embarrassment of the resignations another embarrassment for the Vatican and a blow to pope Francis.

Indicated that our women's transition center, which is located on the fourth floor right here on our premises. Was available to women who at least worked half halftime. However, more recently, we have renamed the WTC to the women's transformation center. You may ask yourself. Well, why did you change the name again, it's still WTC, but we want it to indicate our expectations for change transformation, which should take place with each of us as Christians on this Christian journey. Previously. We wanted the women who entered the center to know that they were moving into a permanent home. Do our work that the Atlanta continuum of care and other agencies.

"Hey, it's good to have you Adams Adams squinting like, do you? I'm amazed that you can pick up that. Well, when when everybody's gone when we finished with this show. Mike can I talk music in net flix, and that's that's where we go. Hey, it's good to have you with this. You know, what we do sometimes on this show? It's the first half of the show. We're talking to Dr Frank, and we're talking the guys from all. And then second half the show, we do whatever. Sometimes we have guests on. I'm gonna have some pastors on coming up real soon, and we're gonna be talking grace, and we're gonna be talking identity and full acceptance and the true you, and we talk spiritual issues during this part of the show because I don't think health health is always been talked about in terms of physical lonely, and we're not just physical beings. We are body soul spirit beings. And it's all one thing. But we sometimes like to splice and slice and pick them out in only caring about. The health of the body right now. And that's not who I am. That's not who you are. And we want to talk about that. So sometimes we do a round table discussion. Second have the show today. The guys from Molterer still hanging out and Jim Miller's with this homes for okay dot com. Keller Williams company, and it is it's real interesting. Because Jim you say is a realtor on the show. Well, I have everybody on the show. It doesn't matter where they come from. But it just so happens that Jim also writes for the nutrition health world, a lot of the blog articles that you see online many of them have been written by Jim a lot of people hire them. He is the person who's writing. And then the other person's face is out in front. And so that's the way that works. He ghost writes books for others. He and I worked on a Doug Kaufman. Okay. That's still not out. I was gonna say. Seventeen sixteen. Gosh, she's at sixteen. Yeah. Okay. I'm calling today. We should have him on a table to. But, but Jim was talking, you know, he was he was listening to us talk about detox, Brian Frank detox with ultra and Jim was kind of thinking about the whole idea of spiritual detox. Also, boy, that's something a lot of people need to hear about you. Yeah. You know, what is it that we need detoxing from in our bodies? It's because we eat stuff that has stuff in it that our bodies in supposed to have and it accumulates, and I love Allen's description of the getting down to the Michael Kandari and cleaning it out. I kind of thought of it like, the the janitor that comes in and cleans our bodies. And so what what is the spiritual equivalent of that, you know, if you look at. I mean, it really if you look at any religion out there, but we're Christians. So we're gonna talk about Christianity. You go you go enough time with men and women running things that it gets bent out of shape. Human beings running things. Exactly, exactly. And so. I kind of look at the the the Church World every church history about every five hundred years it's gotten so bent out of shape that there's had to be some major correction, and I really think we're in the process of that right now. And so what does that mean to us as individuals? I mean, I could go on for hours about that part. But that's not what we're talking about. I wanna know how what do we what do we have in a spiritually that needs to be cleaned out? And I think a lot of it you, and I were talking about this earlier today that a lot of it is we get the impression that when God talks about obedience what he's talking about is obedience to mosaic law or to any of the other ordinances that are in the Old Testament there six hundred and thirty three of them. I think that if I got my thirteen. Yes. Six thirteen. Okay. As off by I made up twenty more in the media. That's nothing. I've made up hundreds more. And so the thing is a perfect example of what the result of that is I had a tendency to think up until very recently that God if you would just take care of these six things over here. And it's, you know, the big ones like finances and my relationships and stuff if God would just fix the problems there, then I could just take care of everything else. I wouldn't have to bother him so much. I can handle this. You take care of things. And then, you know, we'll talk until I need something. I need something else. And how many of us live our lives that way we go to church every Sunday with that mentality. We read we read the bible every day. And if you have that mentality, you're reading it wrong. You're it's you need a detox you need to clean that garbage out. So that mindset now that world view, I saw you closing your eyes there. Josh are you disgusted or are you thinking? Well, I'm I'm thinking about this guy's it's. It's so easy in what Jim just talked about for individuals to get caught up in the programmatic aspect of all the methods and stuff I mean, right from what Jim said, then and I know, Jim. So I know where he's coming from his heart. But people could be listening to that right now in thinking, okay. I need to prepare the list. I need to go ahead and knock down these things and do the detox, but it all really starts when we recognize that there's this unique opportunity to take on the nature of the father. God loves us so much and so when that begins to happen, then there's this beautiful interaction this beautiful dynamic this beautiful communication and intimacy from a loving father desires to reach into those deep dark recesses of our life. Our traumas are are Solis problems the basement beliefs that we have that we picked up when we were kid, and he gently begins to renew our thought processes and gently begins to allow us to partner with him to enjoy life. Because it's like Jim said. It's not the solving of the big six out there. But if I'm actually walking and joy and peace while I'm suffering financially, Cumberland proof, and that's the big difference. Only a big deal the solving of the big six. That should be the name of our next book. But that Oko hitch what he said about basement beliefs. Because we all bring this baggage that comes from our childhood or comes from something, you know, when I started reading Genesis in Leviticus when I was six years old. And so what could I possibly truly understand about it at that age? But I've formed opinions, and I formed thoughts that were that go back that far? So yeah. Definitely want basement beliefs. Well, you said the word religion at one point. And that is is part of the problem. I think because so oftentimes we come to God. And we think of religio city, and that means I am doing this. I am not doing this. And I am trying hard, and I'm and I'm plugged into these little customs of a religion. Right. And and missing out on what Josh was describing which is relationship. Right. And that it almost universally ruins everything whenever I'm not ignoring you, Adam you you jump in anytime. Okay. I'm waiting. You're processing do you? Are you ready to say something or are you waiting? Well. I. You're you're talking about, you know, so many things here on on so many different levels. I I like to go back to the foundation, right? And I think the permit my premise is that a a life lived on self will is gonna fail. Absolutely. We were talking about that earlier too. Right. So if if we're trying to manage things and be the director of what's going on around us. We're going to find ourselves in situations and find ourselves bound up in stuff, and resentments, and anger and jealousy. And ultimately all the stuff that comes on sin. What we need is surrender. Yes. We're laughing laughing. This morning. Jim Jim texted me and the whole subject was surrender. And when we met before we came up to the studio, the subject was surrender. Yeah. It's not a mistake that you just brought that up. Right. But I think surrender has to be done on the on the terms that God wants us to have it. Absolutely. So if people believe that God is going to beat them and hurt them or the things that they've done then they're not gonna surrender to God. That means that they're going to get punished. Right. So if you go to a right, and you get to the premises. What they come what they come back to it. Bill w one of the founders said his essential insight was that God could be found if you were sought and God would help people. And so on that basis, if we surrender we find that God comes right alongside and takes us out of our selfishness. That's so true. It's it's a big deal that I think, and I'm glad that you worded everything the way that you just did. Because there are a lot of people listening every time, we do spiritual discussion, I get a whole lot of feedback and people I find that some people are wrestling with things, and somehow we have begun a discussion that works to their advantage. And they're like more more and more. So we have another segment to do more and more more. And we'll talk more about this whole.

The president said the investigations of his campaign and administration are standing in the way of progress. There is going to be peace and legislation there cannot be war and investigation. It just doesn't work that way. But the investigations continue within congress and outside it just this week. Federal prosecutors in New York subpoenaed members of the president's inaugural committee and a document obtained by WNYC in propublica reveals new information a company founded by the chairman of the president's inaugural committee made plans to exploit connections to the president WNYC's. Ilya marritz is on this story. Good morning. Good morning who was the chairman of the president's inaugural committee. Well, his name is Tom barrack. He is a private equity investor from California. And he and Donald Trump have been friends since nineteen eighty eight. When Barrick was involved in selling the plaza hotel to Donald Trump deal didn't work out great for Trump in the and yet to sell it again, but they remained friends and early on in the Trump campaign. Tom barrack became a prominent supporter. He was a big fundraiser for a super Pac supporting the Trump campaign. And after Donald Trump one he asked his friends to lead his inaugural committee. And when you talk about being a big fundraiser being chairman of the inaugural committee means raise lots of money for the inauguration raised a hundred seven million dollars. Yes, it's a huge fundraising job. That is an essence a big part of the job. The other part is planning the party's. Okay. So he's he's doing huge favors for his friend. Now, the president of the United States, and you have come across this document about what else Tom barrack was doing it around the same time. Yes.

And I just want to read you. Some key quotes play. The key is to strategically, cultivate, domestic and international relations while avoiding any appearance of lobbying. And it goes on to say no other firms can quote, currently matched the relationships or resources that we possess. They say basically they wanted to convene members of the Trump administration with ambassadors international business people and make new opportunities for colony now. I guess we should note. This is not Tom barrack personally writing the memo. But it sounds like we have a company that wasn't really involved in Washington before but was involved in finance and saw an opportunity to exploit the suddenly, very powerful friend of tough, Tom barrack. Yeah. And we got a statement from colony from a colony spokesman who said the memo is simply an outline of a proposed potential business plan. It was never acted on her up. Implemented colony did not set up a DC off. His as they talked about. We do know though that in at least in the spring of two thousand seventeen Tom barrack was doing a lot of meetings in Washington. He got dinner with Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin and seven Middle East ambassador, a private room at a restaurant in Washington DC. That's the kind of stuff that you would expect actually based on this memo Elliott, do you feel you understand how if at all this activity by colony might connect to the federal investigation federal curiosity that we know of about the one hundred seven million dollars raised for the inauguration. Yes. So in that pro prosecutors want to know everything about the money coming in and the money going out from the inauguration, and they've indicated they're concerned particularly about illegal foreign contributions possible cash for access situations. As as you said this inauguration took in a lot of money a lot more than any other ever did when it comes to answering prosecutors questions now, it's the task of Tom barrack to respond friend of the president, former chairman of the committee, private businessmen. Now, it's his job in his lawyers job to try to give them answers WNYC's. Ilya marritz, thanks so much. You're very welcome.

Tough, Tom barrack. Yeah. And we got a statement from colony from a colony spokesman who said the memo was simply an outline of a proposed potential business plan. It was never acted on her implemented colony did not set up a DC office as they talked about. We do know that in at least in spring of two thousand seventeen Tom barrack was doing a lot of meetings in Washington. He got dinner with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and seven Middle East ambassadors in a private room at a restaurant in Washington DC. That's the kind of stuff that you would expect actually based on this memo Elliott, do you feel you understand how if at all this activity by colony might connect to the federal investigation federal curiosity that we know of about the one hundred seven million dollars raised for the inauguration. Yes. So in that pro prosecutors want to know everything about the money coming in and the money going out from the inauguration, and they've indicated they're concerned particularly about illegal foreign contributions possible cash for access situation. As as you said this inauguration took in a lot of money a lot more than any other ever did when it comes to answering prosecutors questions now, it's the task of Tom barrack to respond friend of the president, former chairman of the committee, private businessmen. Now, it's his job and his lawyers job to try to give them answers WNYC's. Ilya marritz, thanks so much. You're very welcome. Pope Francis has acknowledged that the sexual abuse of nuns by priests and bishops is a longstanding problem, and that it still happens. The pope made these remarks during a press conference on his plane as he was flying back to Rome from the United Arab Emirates and impure, Sylvia. Jolie has more for years cases of abuse of women in the church have long been known. The problem persists, particularly in Asia Africa, Latin America and Italy. And yet your thirties have rarely addressed the issue publicly. But in the wake of the metoo movement, a hashtag nuns to movement has emerged and the issue has been more widely reported last week, even the women's magazine of the Vatican newspaper lucid, Victoria, Romano reported on nuns having abortions or giving birth to children fathered by priests or bishops asked about that. By a reporter for the first time, the pope acknowledged what has long been an open secret. She shown us that the such a bookie gave this. There are. Priests and even bishops who have done that. And I believe it still happens because something doesn't stop just because you have become aware of it. Just last month a top official in the Vatican doctrinal office that handles allegations of clerical sex abuse resigned after a former nun accused him of making sexual advances during confession and Francis acknowledged Tuesday that some priests have been suspended because of such abuse of women in the church, she go said debut. She should something more be done. Yes. Is there the will? Yes. But it is a path that we already began Francis pointed to his predecessor whom he called a strong man Papa we need a Bhutto Pope Benedict had the courage to shut down a women's religious order because nuns had been reduced to slaves even sex slaves by priests. He did not name the order. But a Vatican spokesman said it was the French order, contempt sisters of Saint John. On francis. Dress. That abusive women is a persistent problem for society at large you or say the can. I dare say that humanity has not yet. Matured women are treated as second class. It is a cultural problem there are even countries where mistreatment of women reaches the point of femicide last November, the international union of superiors general the organization that represents the world's female Catholic religious orders urge sisters to report abuse publicly, denouncing the culture of silence and secrecy that prevented nuns from speaking out in the article last week in the magazine women Church World, the editor Catholic feminist Lucia to scatter fear pin blame for the abuse of women in the church on the culture of clerical ISM that dominates in the Catholic church. The same power dynamic that is seen as the main culprit for the continuing revelations of clerical sex abuse of.

"He's confused on my right? So far. And and and it's like, well what's going on? But does he believe what he teaches? And he ultimately he wants to be a senior pastor does. He believe what he would preach on Sunday. Yes. Or no. Well, you certainly start to doubt. Right because he's a human. This is what I was created to do because it didn't work out. Right. Yes. Yes. That's the human. That's the human response. But what would your his wife? So we have since we're talking about him. Now, let me just ask you this based on what you know about why he's being let go does. He have any reason to doubt that this is what he was created to do. No, it it was not due to him. It was really poor leadership. So, you know, we've been processing a lot a lot of yourself. You know, is is this the problem, you see that you're really passionate about so that we can combine these strengths and talents et cetera. And we're working on rewriting the resume and all that kind of stuff. But I think a lot of times it's really easy to let that discourage scourge man, get in the way of the practical, you know, the practical steps so he to get right back into ministry. There's churches all over the country, and in you is have to be willing to go wherever God leads. Now. This gets down to this is less about professional advice. If he were on the phone, I just talked to him, you know, man to man and say, this is all spiritual. And you know, there's a there's a great story in the bible that your husband, and, you know, very very well. And you know in the responses what the enemy meant unto me for evil Godman at unto me for good. And I think that's what I would be holding onto right now saying, okay, I was doing the right thing. I was in ministry working my way up with the opportunity to become a senior pastor, which is what I believe I'm called to do this as your husband talking. And then their circumstances change. You know, there are there are there. Bad leaders in ministry. You know, the Church World is not immune to poor leadership. And so in this situation, I it's not the right place. And and yes, it's discouraging, and yes, it's unsettling for the family of eight and all those things, but the reality is, I think you too can truly believe this tonight. If you look each other and say, we're going to look back on this and say, this was the best thing they wrap does. But you've got to believe that. And that's where you to come in as people faith. So there's feelings and then there's faith. So my advice to you and him is you need to hold onto your faith. Not your feelings. Feelings are real not saying dismiss feelings I'm saying feel all those feelings because as human beings, we need to get them out. But feel them all over the place. Boo. You know, just feel everything and in retreat to your faith. God's got a plan and he's going to step up and he's going to provide what he wants me to do is be faithful. And by the way mean faithful is not just trusting being faithful is being a person of action step out step out step up step in to as many ministry opportunities as he can right now and say, hey, we're going to go where God leads us, and we're going to walk through as many open doors as he'll allows and not even worry about the details. Now that that's what I would say to a pastor because he understands where I'm coming from as a person of faith. It's just a tough time right now, but you'll be on eight four four seven four seven two five seven seven eight four four seven four seven two five seven seven. Let's go to misty. Who's on the line in Shreveport, Louisiana misty, you're on the Ken Coleman show. I can thank you for taking my call today. Happy to how can I help? I'm looking for some guidance on trying to get my husband on board with me, pursuing my passion and my during career. How is he not on board right now? Well, just kind of the background is can years ago. I'll less that career path to help him with his business, and does this and says has grown and there's people in place.

"Tonight, the low near sixty five. Here's a crazy headline that I just saw pop up on. On the drudge report. I don't even know what to make. I just read this article. Yeah. I pope Francis confirms priests abuse of nuns, included, sexual slavery. Nuns have suffered and are still suffering sexual abuse at the hands of Catholic priests and bishops and even being held as sexual slaves. The scope of the abuse of nuns first came to light with the publication at the beginning of February of the monthly magazine. Women's Church World. Thank you found the article. The addition included Francis his own take on the scandal, which apparently has long been known about by the Vatican. But virtually never discussed. Had you ever heard this? In suspicions of it for years of sex slavery of nuns, raping of non Jabareen articles, recently, it's been coming out a lot more as a kind of check in and out of I never heard this before I've heard about priests having affairs with women priests having homosexual affairs. But I never heard of bishops and priests that had sexual slaves called the I don't know about this. I've been here about rapes in an abortion rally. The addition included Francis zone take on the scandal in which he blamed the unchecked power wielded by priests and higher clergy across the Catholic church for such crimes. An AP journalist who first reported on the scandal last year asked pope Francis on his flight home from the Arabian peninsula today. Whether enough was being done by the church hierarchy to address the problem, the pontiff conceded that it was a problem and said more action was needed. He said the problem was not new and that the church had been working to address it for some time. What? What I I'm still like. A papal spokesperson confirmed later to CBS news that the order of nuns that was dissolved under Benedict who apparently had the courage to dissolve a female congregation because this slavery of women had entered it slavery, even to the point of sexual slavery. That the order of nuns that was dissolved under Benedict as pope prior to this pope was the community of Saint John in France. The reason the order was dissolved had not previously been made public back in two thousand and five the first year Pope Benedict served as the head of the church. And pope Francis said that he was a man who had the courage to do many things on this topic. What? Somebody helped me. And then this guy Francis told reporters that the church shouldn't be scandalised by this. And there are steps in a process, and we are working on it. Shouldn't be scandalised other. The abuse of nuns comes after years of revelations of clergy abusing children. Mostly boys is their congregations across the globe and senior clergy members covering up these crimes. Pope Francis warned that expectations for upcoming landmark Vatican summit on clergy sexual abuse should be deflated as the problem was unlikely to be resolved through it. So he's lowering expectations on what the church is going to do. Inspite of a string of revelations about the church covering this stuff up. You know? I'm sorry. I really am. I'm sorry. But that I never have, you know, done a full court press like a lot of people in in on the air and media about the Catholic church because I believe there's always going to be sexual abuse and sexual scandals everywhere and every time, but this seems a little like over the top, right? How does that happen? How do you have sexual slaves? Being abused by clergy who are nuts. Ah? Have to take some time to wrap my mind around this. I just saw the headline was enough to. Yeah. To to send me crazy. Government workers busted as they got on a cruise ship here at the port of my Abby to sell drugs. Two government contractors from DC were intercepted by federal agents on a Sunday as they tried to board a cruise ship with an array of drugs they plan on selling to passengers. Their downfall. According to police intercepted emails in which the two discussed their plan a government issued computers. Police said both men were government contractors, though, their arrest reports don't say which agency employed them the homeland security special agent who intercepted the emails said their strategy was to smuggle the narcotics into the ship and distribute it once on board the ship. What's happening to my country? This is just one headline after another. At the stories. Just get worse and worse and worse. And that's why I say this is a moral crisis in America. Forget about. You know, pol- political crises forget about people who are racist or not racist or pose for racist pictures or sexually assaulted forget. All that stuff. It really start looking at the big picture of how we don't have any boundaries anymore any morality imagine, you're sitting at a government computer, and you're sending emails back and forth about selling our products on a cruise ship. I wouldn't said that kind of Email on a on any employers, computer. Would you? Nevermind, a government, computer. I just. I don't know. I don't know. Maybe it's just me. But I keep reading these kinds of diminishing a values. And it's no surprise to me that we are are having the problems that we're having in society. It's not racism, it's morality, it's not, you know, the metoo movement. It's it's just rampant. Immorality people have been living. Like, there's no God for so long that. You just have to throw your hands up. Sometimes. Age sex slaves in the church government workers selling drugs on cruise ships. And that's just too recent headlines, right? The list goes on and on and on. That's why when I see, you know, Maxine Waters says stopping around screaming turn your TV off during the state of the union address. I wanna I wanna throw up, you know, maybe instead of encouraging people to not be civic by did you ought to work on improving the perception that people have of their govern government, including you. Did have some military drills that rocked downtown, Los Angeles. They're all kinds of weapons civilizations. My son told me about this that stuff scares me. But what they did it in Fort Lauderdale, and all of a sudden, you got all those helicopters riding and whatnot. Apparently Monday night. What they there were a lot of people complaining on social media. I was texting with my son. And he said, well, there's this going on. Well, what what do you mean this up going on this? I call these like armed vehicles. Going downtown. It was part of a US army training exercise involving aircraft and weapons simulations in urban settings. And they say they told them that this is going to run through Saturday in L A and Long Beach. Kind of scary. They're supposed to notify residents before this stuff happens, but they did notify. Anybody that we know my son was like on Twitter trying to figure out what's going on. Members of the US army will conduct military trading in the greater L A and Long Beach areas February fourth through the ninth. The purpose of the training is to enhance soldier skills by operating in various urban environments and settings this training is coordinated with the appropriate state county and city officials as well as private property owners safety precautions have been implemented to prevent unnecessary risks to both participants and or area residents of property. What about all the homeless people living in Los Angeles. How do you think they're gonna take it when the the black helicopters come swooping in their paranoid enough? They hear voices coming out of you know, at a benches at a park benches, and now they got special forces in helicopters flying overhead. I could just see the psychiatric wards have every major hospital in Los Angeles. Right. Loyd had mercy. These are the days as they say. All right. We're gonna take our final break come back. And I'm going to give you my little pre pre limb to the state of the union address. And what I think you will hear and what I'm afraid you won't here tonight..

"Hey, it's good to have you Adams Adams squinting like, do you? I'm amazed that you can pick up that say, well when when everybody's gone when we finished with the show, Mike, and I talk music in net flix, and that's where we go. Hey, it's good to have you with this. You know, what we do sometimes on this show? It's the first half of the show. We're talking to Dr Frank, and we're talking the guys from ultra then second half the show, we do whatever. Sometimes we have guests on. I'm going to have some pastors on coming up real soon, and we're gonna be talking grace, and we're gonna be talking identity and full acceptance and the true you, and we talk spiritual issues during this part of the show because I don't think health health is always been talked about in terms of physical only, and we're not just physical beings. We are body soul spirit. Beings. And it's all one thing. But we sometimes like to splice and slice and pick them out in only caring about the health of the body right now. And that's not who I am. That's not who you are. And we want to talk about that. So sometimes we do a round table discussion. Second half the show today. The guys from multi are still hanging out and Jim Miller's with this homes for okay dot com. Keller Williams company, and it is it's real interesting. Because Jim you say as a realtor on the show. Well, I have everybody on the show. It doesn't matter where they come from. But it just so happens that Jim also writes for the nutrition health world, a lot of the blog articles that you see online many of them have been written by Jim a lot of people hire them. He is the person who's writing. And then the other person's face is out in front. And so that's the way that works. He ghost writes books for others. He and I worked on Doug Kaufman. Okay. That's still not out. I was gonna say. Status. Seventeen sixteen. Gosh, she's at sixteen. Yeah there. Okay. I'm calling duck today we should have him on table to. But, but Jim was talking, you know, he was he was listening to his talk about detox, Brian Frank detox with all Tra. And Jim was kind of thinking about the whole idea of spiritual detox. Also, boy, that's something a lot of people need to hear about you. Yeah. You know, what is it that we need detoxing from in our bodies? It's because we eat stuff that has stuff in it that our bodies isn't supposed to have and it accumulates and I loved Allen's description of the getting down to the mitochondria and clean it out. I kind of thought of it like, the the janitor that comes in and cleans our bodies, and so what what is the spiritual equivalent of that, you know, if you look at. I mean, it really if you look at any religion out there, but we're Christians. So we're gonna talk about Christianity. You go you go enough time with men and women running things that it gets bent gets out of shape. Human beings running things. Exactly, exactly. And so. I kind of look at the the the Church World every church history about every five hundred years it's gotten so bent out of shape that there's had to be some major correction, and I really think we're in the process of that right now. And so what does that mean to us as individuals? I mean, I could go on for hours about that part. But that's not what we're talking about. I want to know how to what do we what do we have in a spiritually that needs to be cleaned out? And I think a lot of it you, and I were talking about this earlier today that a lot of it is we get the the the impression that when God talks about obedience what he's talking about is obedience to mosaic law or to any of the other ordinances that are in the Old Testament there six hundred and thirty three of them. I think that if I got my number thirteen. Yeah. Six thirteen okay. Was off by twenty more in the media. That's nothing. I've made up hundreds more. And so the thing is I a perfect example of what the result of that is. I had a tendency to think up into very recently that God if you would just take care of these six things over here. And it's, you know, the big ones like finances and my relationships and stuff if God would just fix the problems there, then I could just take care of everything else. I wouldn't have to bother him so much. I can handle this. You take care of things. And then, you know, we'll not talk until I need something. I need something else. And how many of us live our lives that we go to church every Sunday with that mentality. We we can even read the bible every day. And if you have that mentality, you're reading it wrong. You're it's you need a detox you need to clean that garbage out. So that said that world view, I saw you closing your eyes there. Josh are you disgusted or are you thinking, well, I'm I'm thinking about this guys. It's it's so easy in what Jim just talked about for individuals to get caught up in the. Programmatic aspect of all the methods and stuff. I mean, right from what Jim said, then and I know, Jim. So I know where he's coming from his heart. But people could be listening to that right now in thinking, okay. I need to prepare the list. I need to go ahead and knock down these things and do the detox, but it all really starts when we recognize that there's this unique opportunity to take on the nature of the father God that loves us so much and so when that begins to happen, then there's this beautiful interaction this beautiful dynamic, this beautiful communication intimacy from a loving father desires to reach into those deep dark recesses of our life, our traumas or our solar problems the basement beliefs that we have that we picked up when we were kid, and he gently begins to renew our thought processes and gently begins to allow us to partner with him to enjoy life. Because it's like Jim said, it's not the solving of the big six out there. But if I'm actually walking and joy and peace while. I'm suffering financially. I'm bulletproof. Yeah. And that's the big difference. Big deal, the solving of the big six. Be the name of our next book. But that Oko hitch like what he said about basement beliefs. No. Because we all bring this baggage that comes from our childhood or it comes from something. You know, when I started reading Genesis in Leviticus when I was six years old. And so what could I possibly truly understand about it at that age? But I've formed opinions, and I formed thoughts that were that go back that far? So yeah. Definitely want basement beliefs. Well, you said the word religion at one point. And that is is part of the problem. I think because so oftentimes we come to God. And we think of religio city, and that means I am doing this. I am not doing this. And I am trying hard, and I'm Jay, and I'm plugged into these little customs of a religion and in missing out on what Josh was describing which is relationship. Right. And that it almost universally ruins everything whenever I'm not ignoring you, Adam you you jump in anytime. Okay. I'm I'm waiting. You're processing you are you ready to say something or are you waiting? Well, I. You're talking about, you know, so many things here on on so many different levels. I I like to go back to the foundation, right? And I think the permit my premise is that a life lived on self will is going to fail virtually absolutely we were talking about that earlier too. Right. So if if we're trying to manage things and be the director of what's going on around us, we're gonna find ourselves in situations and find ourselves bound up in stuff, and resentments, and anger and jealousy. And ultimately all the stuff that comes on sin. What we need is surrender. Yes. We're laughing laughing. This morning. Jim Jim texted me and the whole subject was surrender. And when we met before we came up to the studio, the subject was surrender. It's not a mistake that you just brought that up. Right. But I think surrender has to be done on the on the terms that God wants us to have it. Absolutely. So if people believe that God is going to beat them and hurt them or the things that they've done then they're not gonna surrender to God. That means they're going to get punished. Right. So if you go to a right, and you get to the premises of what they come what they come back to it. Bill w one of the founders said his essential insight was that God could be found if you were sought in God would help people. And so on that basis, if we surrender we find that God comes right alongside and takes us out of our selfishness. That's so true. It's it's a big deal that I think, and I'm glad that you worded everything the way that you just did. Because there are a lot of people listening every time, we do spiritual discussion, I get a whole lot of feedback and people I find that some people are wrestling with things, and somehow we have begun a discussion that works to their advantage. And they're like more more and more. So we have another segment to do more more more. And we'll talk more about this whole idea of spiritual detox the idea of surrender and trust. When we come back on super health..

"Where if you're an insecure leader, it gets really difficult for you to be around people that you think are more gifted or talented than you, and that's insecurity. But it's it's really a form of pride that pride is at the root of so many so many sins and so many problems. And so when I look at my life, I'm narcissistic days for sure, I think we all have a few but way, more my struggle with pride comes at him insecurity than it does out of narcissism. Well, so when you look at this. I'm going to list them off against cynicism compromise, disconnection irrelevance, pride and narcissism emptiness burn out when you look at those. And we talk about some of these root issues from again at ten thousand foot view, I find myself wanting to ask you, what do you feel like is? I mean, you have lots of each of those chapters chapters, you have ways to deal with it ways to attack this thing. But if I'd say overall, how do you how would you? How would you do this from a solution standpoint? And being a pastor and a Christian guy. You know, there's an expectation you say well can just come to God yet. Okay. I know yet. Okay. So here's here's what got me. This is not even the last chapter of the book. This is after the last chapter of the book, you call it the conclusion, and you lead with a quote from John Calvin that just got my attention like that without knowledge of self. There is no knowledge. Knowledge of God. So for disclosure, I took that I found a little not a mean. But a poster of it, and I posted it on Facebook this morning. I said, hey, folks, just give me your thoughts and the thoughts are coming in. And obviously a controversial statement, but one being in personal development being a human myself who's trying to better myself. I'm a Namur d- with that perspective. Because you didn't come to just the Christian ease answer, you're saying, no, you gotta go in. And you talk about being self aware unpack that a little bit for us. Yeah. It is fascinating. Because it's a two prong, quote, the one if you're on the field side or studied this at all. I mean, this is open everybody. But if you if you studied theology the other side of the quote, you're probably more familiar with is without knowledge of God. There is no knowledge of self. And again, if you spent thirty eight seconds around Church World, you would expect the pastor to say that what without knowledge of God, Kevin, you can never know your. Self, but actually, Calvin it's a two pronged, quote and most the alot Jains miss the other part without knowledge of self. There's no knowledge of God without knowledge of God. There's no knowledge of self. And I think what's lacking. In a lot of people for sure inside the church in indefinitely outside the church is that self-awareness now Daniel Goldman years ago did us all a gift when he told us it self-awareness is at the heart of emotional intelligence. And we all know that is employers leaders bosses, you know, you don't want to hire emotionally unintelligent people. But I think what's lacking and all of those and what really had to grow in me and my thirties forties. Was that self-awareness because you know, when I was a single guy. I thought I was awesome. Like, I never had fights. Because I didn't fight with myself. I was perfect every day. Right. You know, maybe I said something I shouldn't say you confess that or whatever. But then you get married, and you share the same twelve hundred square foot apartment with another human being and she points out. That apparently, I'm not as perfect as I think, I am in my mind. And that's you know, I got a good friend of mine. Jeff Henderson in Atlanta. And he he asked this haunting question that some days. I wish I'd never heard the question is what's it like to be on the other side of me in that is a great that is a self. That is what Calvin is saying, hey without knowledge of self. You can't really know God. And that's a great question for bosses to ask employers for spouses to ask their mate for parents to ask their grown children for friends to ask each other..
