Russian officials suggesting that those troops crossed the border to defend russian sympathizing separatists in ukraine's eastern donbass region. The united states is now said to be considering sending warships into the black sea. This is not necessarily a huge deal the. Us navy seals the black sea pretty regularly so long as turkey admits them through. The dodd nells straight.

Pulmonary expert says George Floyd died from lack of oxygen
"Cause of death. On Day nine of the murder trial of a former Minneapolis police officer was the defense's turn to cross examine the pulmonologist Dr. Martin Tillman, who testified for the state that George Floyd died of a lack of oxygen because of the amount of body pressure that Officer Derek Shelf in had on Floyd with showbiz lawyer Erik Nelson, turning to partially ingested pills containing meth and fentanyl found at the scene. Is it fair to say that you would expect the peak? Fentanyl respiratory depression within about five minutes. If there was any amount of it ingested. Yes, as the defense points to drugs is the cause of Floyd's death. And as the case continues in week two of a trial with medical experts as to what they think the cause of George Floyd's death watch boxes. Jeff and also Florida is suing the federal

Northern Ireland assembly meets after sixth night of unrest
"Edition of the briefing with me. Andrew mueller last night for the sixth consecutive night northern ireland witnessed scenes of the kind of violence likely to prompt considerable agitation in observers with long enough memories. More than fifty. Five police officers are known to have been injured in the last week and considerable damage done to buildings and vehicles. The worst of the most recent disturbances occurred around one of these so-called peace walls which separate nationalist and loyalist communities in west belfast. The northern ireland assembly has been recalled for an emergency session at stormont today on joined with more on this by lord. Peter hain former secretary of state for northern ireland lord as you would know better than most people the good agreement did not end sectarian tension in northern ireland. There has been sporadic tension and violence over the decades since but measured against that scale. How bad is what we're seeing. Now was nothing like as you indicate the level of bombing and assassination and horror at the said. He has also troubles brought to northern ireland. Whistle the terrorism but It is serious and it needs to be addressed not just by northern ireland's leaders who displaying frankly a lack of leadership which is really disturbing but also by trade minister boris johnson and state for northern ireland who've been pretty absent from the scene in northern ireland now full quite a while and especially over this. What's your read of what's behind this because there is always the trap of reading significance which might not exist into what might just be a bunch of board young men looking for trouble. No this is that there are elements of that and they're a variety of other factors but the main problem has arisen over frustration amongst the unionist community the protestant community over the fact that there are checks and controls in for businesses doing trade. With great britain with england scotland or wales across the irish sea northern ireland of course is on an island with the republic of ireland to the cells and also within the united kingdom and within the united kingdom the rest of the united kingdom there are no barriers to trade of any kind between scotland. And or between wales and england for that matter scotland wales but they're on house result of brexit across the irish sea between england scotland and wales to northern ireland for the first time and that is the reason because the type of brexit that boris johnson. The prime minister pursued which was to break any real alignment with the european trade and customs arrangements and to go for at entirely separate of great britain but in order to make sure that the good friday peace process and the stability which has brought since ninety nine hundred was maintained. The irish border had to be kept open. Let's say the border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland to itself as it has been now for decades and has become invisible with all sorts of human activity. Crossing it in their efforts not had the toxic role played a toxic role. Because it's been invisible it did in generations gone by and that's that's also the good if however that's it become the external frontier customs frontier of the european union. Then it could have ignited all those old problems that had beset and an bedeviled northern ireland. So instead what boris johnson agreed to was to keep the border open that men the northern ireland remained in the european union's customs union and it's trading markets but that's Inevitably because the united kingdom was leaving Great britain would be outside those arrangements so they have to be checks across the irish sea between northern ireland and great britain. of course. The prime minister denied this in his normal airy way At the beginning on the unionists and loyalists in particular who some of the most hardline involved feel betrayed. Because he didn't he wasn't straight with them way. Do you save in the causal connection between that dissatisfaction with the post brexit arrangements. And what we've seen in west belfast. Is it possible that there are people who are or were associated with loyalist paramilitarism. Who are leveraging that discontent to cause trouble. Yes there are and they're also criminals amongst them who drug. Traffic is and so on who've presented a police crackdown which has been quite effective in their communities to try and get rid of this drug trafficking problem and bought ignited. Not because of that so much though it's fit into it but also but primarily because suddenly loyalist protestant unionists suddenly found that Country what boris johnson told them. There are actually checks and controls strangling a lot of northern ireland businesses in a mountain of tape and naturally they see that as a break within the united kingdom because which puts northern ireland in a different place from say england scotland or wales and so they feel that their fundamental beliefs in the the union of the united kingdom northern ireland. Being within that is being threatened. And that is what ignites it. There was none of this until that issue suddenly arose around new year because the prime minister frankly say told a lot of porky's on us and didn't level with the unionist community and they suddenly found themselves in this predicament and had created Insecurity and understandable anxiety out of which these other factors criminality usa Vandalism and so on out of which that's fed you mentioned earlier a an absence of leadership both in northern ireland and in the united kingdom what would a constructive response from especially northern irish politicians. At this point look like presumably not like the one We saw her on twitter from arlene foster who went and it is a a term with which you will be familiar. Full water battery Suggesting that the violence will die quote. Take the focus off the real lawbreakers incheon. Fine that's probably not the most helpful into intercession. She could have made at this point. Is it well when you become first minister which is effective northern ireland as she is Although it's an unusual arrangement that she has joins us with the deputy minister. Michelle neil who's a shouldn't fain leader when you reach these positions you've got to speak for the whole of the community promises and president presidents naturally have their own party agendas to follow in their own party members to satisfy in any country in any democratic system. But you're trying to speak for the whole nation and that for the whole nation as well once you assume those positions and what has been disappointing about both of them and especially in recent days. Me aline fosters utterances. She's not adopted that role. She's effective acting as a party politician. A democratic unionist party rather than speaking for the whole of the the the the community across northern ireland and across the religious and political divides that have bedeviled for so many generations. And i think that's the kind of leadership we need. And we have gossips equally across the water London has been virtually silent on northern ireland. Now full rarely ever since David cameron and the conservatives came to power in two thousand ten under make this point on a on a party. Basis is a leave a politician and also it was labor secretary of state for northern ireland. A because it's traditionally been a nonpartisan issue between both the major parties. I make it. Because i'm genuinely an i've being hugely critical of the the absence of of number ten downing street of the prime minister in a way. That's attorney blend. Gordon brown were in vogue. John major's conservative prime minister before them. playing an honest broker role effectively. What they've done is said will not you know the the good friday process the peace settlement that i helped to negotiate in two thousand seven that brought the old enemies to share power together. That that's all done and dusted and therefore we can concentrate on the other pressures of government and that was fatal So we only seen a couple of sentences from the prime minister over the last few days when parts of belfast up in flames and a couple of tweets from the northern ireland secretary of state. Frankly that's not good enough. They should be convening all party. Talks in person to try and resolve these as labor shattered secretary. St louis hague has called for And they should be on the case all the time instead of effectively absence without leave as has been the case over northern ireland now sadly for a number of years lord haein. Thank you as always for joining us. You're listening to the briefing. Here is markle's ailing goffin. With the days of the headlines. Thanks andrew in the serum institute.

"And. Then suddenly I had a moment which I felt the weight. Of all the stuff that I should have been ashamed of all along. It turns out. That seems to me that the way that that protests in the way that movements are effective in changing culture is to understand the role that shame plays in other words. The most powerful picture out of the civil rights movement to me. Is that eight year old six year old girl? African American. Girl who's been walked into the school grounds a little Rock Arkansas accompanied by the National Guard. And you watch that and you think to yourself what this girl is so innocent. She's a she's six or eight years. He's really small. How in the world could you not be ashamed that she has to be? guarded by the net? One side was able to shame effectively. Shame the other. To bring them to their senses and Martin Luther, King did this when he was able to point to a higher standard and by the way peaceful demonstrations can do this I. believe that because they've done in the past. When we have to be careful not to allow. If you want to move the forward, you cannot do anything that brings you shame. Because then the other side going GonNa. Say Well. You should be ashamed of that right well. Maybe we should be ashamed of this, but you should be more ashamed of that, and then we played this more game back and forth so it seems to me. The Christian worldview does a lot for us. Because number one, it teaches us about shame in the value of hey, whatever the other side does. That's between them and God, but whatever I do on this side that's between me and God right also. What I see a lot is is frank that people will say well I always. I attended a workshop couple of years ago in Washington DC top. Law Enforcement Reformation in reforming the assistant. And so there, as part of this group and one person brought the issue of fatherless-ness in the African American community. Well, that doesn't play well. That didn't play why you can't. There is no reason to bring up whatever you think your issue. Is you think the issue is this I? Think the issue is that because it turns out the Gospel addresses both issues anyway. So I can spend time saying well the problem there is that that us with systemic racism and the problem over there. They say oh, it's about fatherless-ness turns out that the Gospel addresses both systemic racism and fatherless-ness addresses both I don't need to nitpick about whatever you think. The cause is because the Gospel. Actually addresses whatever the cost might be because all of it is rooted in sin. And what I was about to say before is. To be hyphenated brothers and sisters. You know we we hyphenate our. Our citizenship now we've got African Americans. We've got Italian. Americans we've got Irish are all this kind of thing. And in Christianity were just Christians, and as Paul Famously said in relations three there is neither Jew, nor Greek. There's neither slave free. There's neither male or female for your all one in Christ Jesus, and that's the attitude we have to take. Are we really going to judge? People based on amount of pigmentation? They have in their skin I. Mean Really. Is that what we're GonNa do I mean. Mean King was right when he said that I have a dream that one day we're going to judge people based on the content of their character, not the color of their skin and in Christianity Christianity says that that's exactly the case that we need to to look at the inside of people, and if there if there are saved with Jesus, and if they're not save, they're made in the image of God. We need to treat everybody with that kind of respect unless we're made in the image of. Unless there's a God who has established through his nature that we are made in his image, and there is a real right and any deviation from that right from his nature is wrong. We can't really move forward. Can we well I tell you that we should be ashamed. A church I'll be honest with you. To the chamber the Church late I came at the age of thirty. Five K C right now for example there are many places in the country in which the church is terribly segregated to a level. That's unlike almost any other institution. Who in some small towns, Black Baptist. Church and there's the White Baptist, church in the block away from each other and I'm thinking to myself really. We have a good friend or when gray. Who's got a church? That's pretty mixed in varying. In terms as a great job, I asked him. How did you achieve this when I? Don't see it in other churches. He said well. We model it from the stage we are leadership is diverse are worship. Teams are diverse. Our ministries are worse because we model it now. That's another example of other ISM in other words, people come and the ended up copying what they see from the stage, so they can be like that. Again this is how we're drawn. How were so we? Could as church change this? And it's going to require US though to make efforts to model it from the stage right, and so I think of all the groups we probably have as much responsibility or maybe more saying the Gospel is the Cure Ri- starts with the go. It's not government. It's Gospel if that's the case that we have to build a model that from the stage, at which the Gospel is proclaimed. Get the. Cross examined Apple Ladies, gentlemen.

He and his father, Josh McDowell. Updated that and Now Sean has teamed up with Jim to right. So the next generation will know preparing young Christians for a challenging world. It's just out this week. I've got a copy in my hand right here. It's a very practical book. This is not the Allah GDP, Allah. Gee, it's not apologetic that you can't understand. This is practical stuff that you can use with any young person even some older people in today's generation. You can help these people not only know why Christianity is true, but help them know why they should stay Christians when they're tempted to walk away from Christianity, particularly when they get out on their own now a gentleman, I've noticed that the book is really centered around the issue of love, believe it or not, virtually every chapter has something to do with love, Sean. Let me start with you. Why is that the theme throughout this book? While there's a couple of reasons for first office will be opened with a chapter called love backer ffices, and we kind of make the point that we sacrificed for what we love. I'll sit in Starbucks with my done about three years ago who was out three or four time and link over and he goes, you know, good for you. And I said, good for me. What was I by the time for my kids growing up, and it cost me on the money I wouldn't change your for the world in the hit him, like if we care about this generation, we have to stack for fife o of our own desires, and one deaf in their live and minister to them, so looking at this generation should be through the lens of love. Now, what are the other reasons is, is Jane? I are both apology. So we are known for doing more apologetic work. And we're trying to write this book to reach an audience outside of the apologetic world for me. I'll do I do ton with kind of youth ministry world. What I found is the. I apologize will everybody's like truth truth truth. Give an argument give Christian worldview then ministry world. It's like relationship experience. And we're looking at this thing it's actually both. We have to give them truth and go worldview, but not to win an argument, because we love them and should be willing to backer fight for this generation. So that's why we opposed it that way. Well, you guys have done a fabulous job. It's very easy read. And there's a lot of practical strategies in here. But before we get into some of those strategies, Jim, you've done. I know personally a lot of research on the younger generation say jen's e which I think would would go anywhere from what born the year two thousand two two twenty fifteen or so would that be fair to say? I mean it's kinda broad defined margins here. But you've got a teenager or a pre teenager. You've got someone in your life. Who's jen? Okay, now I'm looking at page eighty one of the book here, and again, the book is called. So the next generation will know by Shaun McDowell j Warner Wallace and you kind of survey a series of beliefs here about what this generation believes can, you kind of give us an overview of what the generation believes according to survey data. Yeah. So this is something that, that is fascinating to me if you have anecdotal experiences, right? As teachers as youth pastors in here at the C the broader kind of. Surveys that are done. I think I hope you might think because you have teenager in your life that you already know, everything there is no or you need to know about Jin Zina's true, the spectrum. So it's always like we're we hesitated, right? When we wrote this part of the book to put these broad labels on these folks, because there's always a range in that, of course, there are nominees either side. So I just want to the generalities, but I do think we know that technology shaped all of us are experienced by experience being raised in the sixties and seventies with technology that my parents didn't have had an impact on the way, I see the world. I mean let's just you imagine living in a world before there were even telephone communication. I reminded remember my grandparents talking about how they thought that the telephones would be the end of all relationships as we know them because people didn't care to be in front of you to anymore communicate on that on that, you know, wired land line. Well, really? I mean, jeez, not going back in the bottle either is the technology. We have today is not going back in the ball. We guys style. Is something we're going to resist or breaks. And I think the one thing you see this most commonly described with district ration- is that they are digital natives, they were raised in the context of digital world and really that means a lot. It'd be a lot in terms of how we interact interact. Socially for a second. We also just from the research that this is the loneliest generation, and you might think how in the world can that be possible given that they have more immediate access to their friends on internet platform. Right. So for media, but I want you to think about this for a second relationships are intensely. Geographic in the sense you have to be in the physical proximity of somebody to really have the kind of relationship you're thinking about when you use that word when we, we, we walk with someone through those stages of life through chapters, in your life together that metaphor draws on the idea that you are in the physical presence of somebody walking with them. You can't have me on your social media on your phone, and you're really walking. Even though you have the phone in your hand, as you're walking, there is something different about physical proximity build into relationships and that I think is very important to understand what do they say? Eighty percent of all communication is nonverbal and you video chat is gonna get it. You'd have to see the my body the way, I am bracelet and ideas physically the way, I react physically even touch amongst friends is something that we see as part of the relationship context if you take that out, you end up with a form a word be used. You can say I'd relationships with people, but they really are lacking, perhaps, the most key ingredient, which is just physical proximity to the person with which you have a relationship that why does that matter because you also find doing the work on this generation, they are the least trusting even though they have access to tons of information. It turns out that physical proximity can actually help you in the trust at gory. Also because I might be able to. Get a truth claim awful online source. But if I'm the person who has has you, as a parent, you have physical proximity to your kids, and you have to develop the relationship that, that kind of proximity allows you to have big issue, an authority in their lives. One of the things the Sean didn't finish. And I want you to finish that, Sean, the years later when shot went back to his dad and said, hey, I know what you told me that years ago. But what were you really thinking? I want Sean to finish that story

So I hope to see you guys there. It's near Miami, Florida Fort Lauderdale that area. So check out our website cross examined dot org. Four. For more on that. All right. Let's go back to our topic today. We are talking about this. And I just had it up here. What happened to it stand by for victor's Victor? Gee, I gotta go find this thing again. It was just here. We're talking about a pastor who had left the faith and put out a series of tweets as to why he left the faith and his first tweet here. It is after forty years mega church. Pastor slams Christianity and quits deacon claims he had an affair and his first reason apparently for leaving Christianity was because he seemed to think that GM reading the bible that seems to be a lot like Greek mythology. Well, he doesn't explain it in the tweet because you can't explain much in a tweet. This is why it's not a good venue or good means of trying to communicate detailed information. But I'd like to query him on why he thinks that the two are the same. But of course, there's going to be similar similarity similarities in the sense that there's deity, and then they're human beings. And if there's going to be communication between the two of them in some sense than Greek mythology. And the idea of Judaism Christianity are going to have some similarities just like they'll have with Islam and other religions. Yeah. Supernatural ISM is a characteristic of both Greek mythology and Christianity, but that doesn't necessarily mean one is true and the others faults or both our faults. You've got to go a little bit deeper than that back to the article. He says he explained how he was raised in a, hyper fundamentalist, Christian home. Where Christianity didn't work the promises were empty the answers were lies. Well, what do you mean? By the answers were allies. What answers what promises are you talking about? What promises are empty? See any more detail here. But it seems to me the explanation of him leaving the faith is based on expectations which are not expectations put forth in the bible. And you'll see why we go further here. He was on to say, even so he grew up in a devout Christian. He grew up to be a devout Christian who rarely miss church failed to study scripture. He says, quote, I was fully devoted to studying the scriptures. I think I missed maybe twelve Sundays in forty years. I completely memorized eighteen books of the bible and was reading through the bible for the twenty four time. When I walked away. He went on to say this. None of it however helped his marriage quote. This is the pastor again, Dave gas. He says as an adult. My marriage was a sham and a constant source of pain for me. I did everything I was supposed to do marriage workshops counseling bible reading bible reading together date nights every week marriage books, but my marriage never became what I was promised. It would be unquote stop right there. Now, I don't want to. I don't want to pile on. This pastor who obviously has had a difficult time. I'm just I just want to put a question around the expectation and the supposed- promise where is it promised that Christians are not going to have trouble in marriage. Where does it say that? I mean, sometimes people will say to me like I don't believe in God. And I'll say, well what describe what kind of God, you don't believe in. And after they described this kind of God, I'll say, well, I don't believe in that kind of God either you have expectations. That the Christian God never promised. Where does he promise? Your marriage is going to be always good. Where does it say that it doesn't where does it say that life is going to be roses and rainbows all the time? It doesn't. But why do we expect it will why do we expect that becoming Christians or when would become Christians life is going to get so much better? And everything's going to go. Well, in fact, the exact opposite is promised. Jesus said in this world, you will have trouble take art overcome the world, if they persecute me they're going to persecute. You Paul said anyone who lives faithful life in Christ? Jesus will be persecuted. What? This is why the prosperity gospel is a complete sham. Maybe he was thinking the prosperity gospel was true. And when the prosperity gospel didn't work out. He said, we'll Christianity faults. That's why it's dangerous doctrine. Now, this is going to sound maybe too harsh, and it'll probably lose me some listeners here, but I'm gonna say this anyway because I think it's true. I'd rather have somebody not go to church then go to a hardcore prosperity gospel church why because by going to a hardcore prosperity gospel church. You're getting the wrong idea who got is. And then when God doesn't meet the expectations you falsely have placed on him. Then you think God doesn't exist or he's a sham. If you don't go to church, maybe you won't get that wrong idea of God. And maybe there's a possibility that you will come to know the truth at some point. But it's very difficult for people. And I think psychologically, it's very difficult because. When you've been had. You're much more skeptical than if you've never been had before. So. This is why people who say come out of Mormonism tend to become atheists or agnostics. They don't. Most of the time become Christians because they're they're they're skeptical baloney meter, so to speak is up. Look, I've already been had. I'm just going to decide to be nothing. I'm not going to decide to to jump into another religious viewpoint that might be wrong here. And that's what goes on with the press Bertie gospel. Maybe I don't know this guy only reading tweets here. So I don't know if you suppress Bertie gospel teacher, what at all almost seems to think like he is almost sounds like years he has expectations of God that God has never promised. In fact, I think it was Gary Thomas wrote, the book sacred marriage, and the subtitle is all you need to read. To get the gist of the book, and I'm paraphrasing the subtitle. But it goes something like this. What if God created marriage more for our holiness than for happiness? What if God created marriage more for holiness than our happiness? Look if everything goes well in a relationship, you're having if there's no friction if there's no tension if there's no requirement for you to suppress your selfishness and yield to another person. Then you're probably not growing. You're probably not becoming more like Jesus. Relationships are difficult because there are two broken people in a relationship and that broken requires us to become more like Jesus to improve ourselves into also improve the relationship. But if you're expecting that when you become a Christian everything's just gonna go. Well, you're not reading the bible right notice. The pastor is giving reasons to leave Christianity. Christianity that wasn't true to begin with based upon his expectations. This isn't Christianity that God is gonna make your relationships all go smoothly.

Talk data you talk because they never been talked into it. Cross examined skeptical view, welcome to cross examine with Brian Dory. Friends. This is Lisa chillers of filling in for France today as he is wrapping his footsteps of Paul Chris. I'm sure that he will tell you all about that. When he gets back, but I'm for to be with you today. We're gonna talk about an issue that is very near and dear to my heart. In fact, it's the focus of my ministry, and that is discussing the movement of progressive Christianity from a biblical frankly from a logical point of view. Maybe you've noticed in your social media circles in certain Christian books, and blogs that you've read or even at your church some things that have concerned, you maybe you've heard some things that gave you some red flags, but you can't quite put your finger on what it is. Or maybe what to call it or how to articulate what you're what you're thinking. But you have these concerns maybe it's an over. Overemphasis on the humanity of the bible. Maybe you've heard someone called the bible just a human book. Maybe there are self professing Christians in your life who no longer believe that the bible is the word of God. Maybe they they believe it's a great book and something we can learn a lot from, but they wouldn't go so far as to say that all of it is the word of God. Maybe you've heard a sermon in which a pastor says that Jesus didn't really die to tone for sins. But that he was just simply murdered by an angry mob, and somehow he submitted to that. But but that was never really God's will. Because if it was that would make God something more like an abusive father, maybe read a Christian blog or a book that reexamines essential doctrines cardinal Christian doctrines, like the virgin birth and the physical resurrection of Jesus, and and maybe this book or blog conclude. That these things don't really have to be real. They don't have to be actual historical events for Christianity to be true. And to be meaningful in your life in the world. All of these red flags all of these are signs of a movement called progressive Christianity. I'm sure you've noticed as I've noticed that professing Christians are divided on a lot of issues. We're seeing self professed Christians change their views on things like abortion and gay marriage and how to define and carry out, Justice or social Justice more specifically..

No Easter is not about bunnies and chocolate. Although I like bunnies and chocolate. It's about the fact that Jesus of Nazareth walked out of the tomb about one thousand nine hundred eighty six years ago, whether he died and thirty three AD or thirty days up for debate. But let's say thirty three eight one thousand nine hundred eighty six years ago, he walked out of the tomb, really. Can you really believe that? Yeah. I think you can we're going through the evidence for it. So truth exists, we covered that in the last segment. Does God exists. We're not gonna go into all the arguments for God. We've talked about them a quite a bit on this program before. But yes, there's evidence for God one piece of evidence for God. In addition to the truth argument. I just gave was the fact that the universe had a beginning out of nothing and even atheists admit this even hawking famously said that almost everyone now believes that the universe and time itself had a beginning. Now hawking tried to come up with another explanation other than God for the beginning. But he admits the data. What's the data that space time and matter literally had a beginning out of non being out of nothing? Well, if that's the case, whatever created space time and matter can't be made a space time and matter in other words, the costs must be space less. Timeless immaterial powerful to create the universe out of nothing personal in order to choose to create why personal because impersonal forces don't make choices only personal forces make choices gravity doesn't decide that it's going to pull everything to the ground. Right. It just doesn't. It. But in order to go from state of nothingness to a state of creation. Someone had to make a choice and only a personal being can make a choice. Also, the being would have to be intelligent again in order to have a mind to make a choice that ladies and gentlemen, just from the cosmological argument the argument from the beginning of the universe. We can see we have a being that space 'less timeless immaterial powerful personal and intelligent now. When you think of a being like that who do you think of? Yeah. God you say well, Frank, how do you know, what's the Christian? God we don't yet. We haven't done enough research yet, this could be Allah, or this could be some other God at this point. We don't get all the way to the Christian God with one argument. We're simply saying it could be the Christian God. And upon further research. I think we're gonna realize that the same being that walked out of the tomb one thousand nine hundred eighty six years ago, it's the same in in in whose divine nature created the universe. But we're not there yet. You can add the fine tuning argument. Tha that the argument from design in life, and of course, the moral argument. And when you add those arguments together, you get a being that look suspiciously. Like the God of the bible space. Timeless immaterial powerful. Moral personal intelligent creator who created all things and sustains all things again, we're not gonna go through the evidence for that here. We're trying to get the resurrection. I'm just setting the table. So it looks like a bean like God exists. So we move onto the third question. After does truth exists, we go to gut does God exist? Now, we're at our miracles possible. And a lot of people don't believe in miracles. They've never seen one. Or, you know, anything's more pop probable than a miracle. They'll say, well, look, what is the greatest miracle in the bible now, it's not the resurrection. Although that's obviously a very impactful miracle the greatest miracle in the bible as we said many times before is the first verse of the bible in the beginning. God created the heavens and the earth if that versus true every other versus at least possible, and when you have atheists admitting the data for the first miracle. That's pretty good evidence. When atheists are admitting at the universe out of againing. That's pretty good evidence for a beginner. So if the first verse of the bible is true, and it appears to be then certainly if God can create the universe out of nothing. He can do whatever he wants. It's not logically impossible inside the universe. Of course. He can resurrect Jesus from the dead if he can create the universe out of nothing. Of course, he can part the Red Sea or make accents float in water or walk on water or raise the dead or heal the sick. Of course, he can do that. If you can create the universe out of nothing will win eight Theisen admitting the data for the first verse even though they don't think it was God, he's really hard to figure out. What else it could be can't be more nature nature was created nature. Can't be the 'cause it must be something beyond nature. Something space. Timeless immaterial if all nature came into existence. What the which is what the evidence shows and all time came into existence which. Which is what the evidence shows. You don't even need. You don't even need. Science to show that the universe had a beginning. You just need. What's called the column? Cosmological argument that time had beginning. How do we know time how to beginning? Well, let me ask you a question if there were an infinite number of days before today today of ever arrived.

And you can also see TV show streaming live there. So check all that out. Let's get back to our topic today. We're talking about this question. I got that. This former pastor says the Bible's inadequate if I was got it would I would I would put forth a different more perfect revelation. And we said he has a couple of problems one is he's making a standard without or he's making a judgment without a standard. If he's an atheist, and Secondly, why should you trust anything? You think if you're an atheist much less what God is or isn't doing. And we're talking about the first one now, the standard and. The question is what standard is this gentleman using to say that the bible is inadequate. Now. He didn't he didn't give us any specific contradictions. Maybe maybe he thinks there are contradictions and he has the minutes book. He didn't highlight any of these. But you can't fault somebody for a particular design, unless you know, what the intentions of the designer are maybe God is getting his will done through the revelation that we currently have. This is one of the problems that atheists have when they try and claim say, well, God didn't assign our bodies, for example as good as human engineers. Would you know, why didn't God give us Teflon, coated, arteries, and and titanium bones? Engineer would do that. Why didn't God do that? Well, you can't fault God. Because maybe the reason eating do it that way is because he doesn't want our bodies to last that long or maybe because there's a tradeoff whenever you're in a world with physical constraints. There's no such thing as perfect design. There's only optimum designed based upon the intentions of the design. Maybe a titanium bones would be too heavy and we couldn't move as easily. There could be a number of reasons for it. You can't fault a designer unless you know, what his intentions are. You can't fault the maker of the Volkswagen beetle because it doesn't carry fifty three passengers passengers like a passenger bus. Does you can't say well? You know, if I was designing this thing I'd make carry fifty Fifty-three passengers. Well, the Volkswagen beetle designer didn't want it to carry fifty three passengers and they traded off the number of passengers that could carry for fuel economy and maneuverability same thing is true with your iphone. I wish my iphone battery lasted longer than thirty seven minutes at last now. But if it did, the iphone designers would probably have to make it a lot bigger they can make it the size of a briefcase, and it would last a week, but it wouldn't be very portable then. So they traded battery power for portability. They had an optimum design rather than design of my preference. Perhaps. And so again, you can't fault someone unless you know, what their intentions are. And by the way. It would be foolhardy to say that because the iphone doesn't have the design characteristics. I desire that the the iphone therefore is not designed now even bad design is still design, even if you think it's bad. It's still design. So these these arguments at the spring forth are based on their their own preferences that they wish God did things differently. Well, you know, half the time I wish that too. But that doesn't mean God doesn't exist. Just like it doesn't mean the iphone designers don't exist because I don't like the way they designed the IFO. And by the way, some of the objections that are brought up our moral because if you if you uncover this objection that, you know, it's too complex only experts can understand the bible first of all. That's not true. Yeah. There are areas you need to be an expert understand. But other areas, you don't like for God's love the world that he gave his only begotten son that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have Turner life. You don't need to be an expert to know that. Your need to be an expert to know that you're saved by grace and not by works. So that none should boast. You don't need to be at expert for that your need to be an expert that Jesus died in rose from the dead. And he came as a ransom. There's no expert necessary. You don't need to be an expert to know that somebody who is dead isn't coming back to life unless there's a God who can rise him from the dead or raise him from the dead. You don't need to be an expert for that. But there are some aspects of this objection which turn out to be moral. If you if you uncover this objection, he's basically saying that if there was a loving God he'd have a better revelation that more people could understand so more people could become save. That's really where this is going. Well, again, how do you know that if the revelation wasn't based on your preferences that fewer people would be saved? You don't know that? In fact. This is all speculation. And you don't have a moral standard. If you're an atheist or not least to say that God is immoral for doing something a certain way. Now, an atheist could say if your God is loving. Why didn't he do it differently? And we can investigate that speculating perhaps come up with some possible or definite answers. But you can't say is there is no God. And the God of the bible is immoral because you don't have any moral standard by which to judge that. We don't know what the world would be like if they're either was a different bible or no bible at all. Because it's a counterfactual claim and this idea that we can judge. God's divine psychology is a very dangerous enterprise to think that we these fallen creatures who have a very small window of. Of time in which to observe reality. And have a very small window of of experience, given where we live, and what we can experience that we're going to judge the entire creator of the universe with the creator of the entire universe as to how he should do things. That's very dangerous. It appears to me. And again, it presupposes that are standard that we might have is automatically better than an objective. Standard that comes from God's nature. And by the way. I think that the bible is a blend of complex and simple revelation. But I think that makes sense for an infinite God. In fact, it would be strange if an infinite God wasn't strange to us. It would also wouldn't be. Wouldn't be very deep just to have say book of. I just a book statements or book approximations when you have prophecy parables and poetry. I mean, you have a complete the bible is a complete literary masterpiece. It's literary catalogue of all sorts of different genres of literature that are so deep. I mean, I can read a passage that I've read one hundred times and stop. And say I never saw that about this. Or I never saw this passage related to this passage or how this story relates to that story or how this character in the Old Testament is actually a type of Christ. I never saw that before. It's an amazing tapestry. God is the only perpetual novelty and to think that this infinite being should write a basic kids book, see socks run. And if he doesn't do that. Then it's not a perfect revelation. I don't think that necessarily follows. And by the way, being clear doesn't automatically mean. People will accept it. People suppress the truth all the time. There are people today that are denying the earth is round there. Flatter Thor's out there. Now could the evidence be more clear that a trend? There are people today denying that. A man is a man in a woman is a woman and they're adamant about it. And they will shout you down and call you. All sorts of names if you don't want to live in their fantasy. There are people today who are using to acknowledge that a nine month term baby is a human being who deserves protection forty four members of the US Senate this week said that that's not a human being deserves protection. It's clear as day. Everybody knows this. But they suppressed the truth the glued her own way. So it's not a matter the clarity the revelation. It's a matter of the darkness of the heart. The bible is clear on the plane things and the main things are the plain things, and the plain things are the main things, but it is a deep robust revelation a forty different authors over fifteen hundred years. And even within its pages, you have people who illustrate the fact that it doesn't it doesn't matter. How clear something people are going to suppress it and rejected the girl to go their own way. As with raises Lazarus from the dead in front of people. And the Pharisees or the high priests wanna kill him. Want to kill him. And they wanna kill as Rhys. They know he's innocent man, even say, so. But. Jesus is getting in the way business. So we're going to suppress the truth. There you see. It's not the evidence. That's the problem. It's the heart. That's the problem men loved darkness rather than light. And so I think the evidence is quite clear and the revelation is quite clear while I do knowledge their areas of the bible that I don't even understand in many people don't understand there's even disputes in some areas, but they're not the main things they don't have much to do with salvation. And the purpose of the bible stated itself is to make you wise, unto salvation, that's the purpose. Second Timothy chapter three. It's not to tell you everything about everything is to make you wise into salvation. So when atheist bring up, well, you know, if I was God, I do it a different way. Okay. Maybe would. But you're not God. You don't have the perspective. God has and why should we why should we trust your intuitions and your standard when you don't even have standard? In order to judge God that he's doing it wrong. By the way. If you notice some of these objections, I brought up God's revelations to complex and contradictory. God's waited too long to send Jesus God. Why doesn't God appeared? Everyone won't got up here to me. Why does God heal amputees? What about those who have never heard? Why didn't God designer bodies as good as you engineers could notice that most atheists don't really have arguments. As to why eighth theism is true, or how this universe could exist. In the absence of God. They have a few things they point to they'll say evolution or quantum vacuums or multi verses the speculative theories. They don't really have arguments, whoever they just have complaints about the way God's running the universe. Well, again, you need to Stanford. And when we come back. We'll talk about the fact that why should we trust an atheist or why shouldn't atheist trust is own intuitions and his own conclusions about this if atheism his true, then we're going to try and get to a couple of other questions, including the blockbuster video just put out that's getting two thousand. Well, I'll tell you about right every break up. Frank turf, don't go college campuses are hostile to the Christian faith and three out of four young people walk away from the church once they go to college. That's why we go to college campuses and present I don't have enough faith to being in the United States even all over the world when we do this. We don't charge students a dime. That's why we need your financial support.

"Very special episode of the cross country coffee Roach show, number sixteen percolating politics. When we first came up with the idea or the cross country coffee road show. We had thought we wanted to stay completely away from politics. We however found out while we were on the road that this was not going to be possible. Well, we discovered in most of the coffee shops. We were at is that people wanted to share their political views as we I cross the country. We thought we would not have any form of political statement within the podcast based on some of the polarity as we cross the country. However, we realized that was going to be impossible this year, we had gone from Chicago to Santa Monica as you can imagine crossing directly through the United States that way allowed for multiple political opinions in one particular store woman came up to me, and she was very adamant about political views I listened and as I was trying to back away. She still shouting at me, and as we left the store Dan wanted to know what I had done to rile or up said nothing. She just wanted to talk about her political views from out of that conversation. Percolating politics was born we decided right then. And there that everybody needed an opportunity to share their views, unfiltered, and anonymously, we weren't sure how this was going to work out as far as interviewing people about their political opinions about what we found is that they really wanted to talk about this. They not only wanted to share their political opinions, but they wanted to share the reasons behind those opinions, which we found fascinating we cross conservative and liberal Aries around this country, red blue and purple as we discussed this and decided that we would include the percolating politics within each episode. We came up with some history associated with this as well what we discovered is that there is a long rich history of sharing ideas and opinions in coffee houses in the sixteen hundreds coffee shops began popping up in Europe. And they were gathering spot for people of. Every persuasion to come in and share their ideas. Whether it was about science, politics, religion and out of that was born the penny university where anyone could join into the conversation for just the price of Cup of coffee, which at that time was the penny. The rest of this episode will be the opinions of those people who we have broadcast far stay tuned for the rest of our year. Whatever your persuasion, we've vote to honor those who fought and died for this privilege. Our season is now half over and the first group of perk loading politics randomized over the course of the first fifteen episodes are available individually in those episodes as well as one complete unit in percolating politics special edition voting November six twenty eighteen episode sixteen and please please vote..

"Next segment is purply politics. Once again as we cross the country, we've found that people really had a desire to express their political opinions. We have given those opinions light in our podcast under this heading percolating politics. I am going to vote, and we always vote, and we always take our two year old daughter to vote and we'll continue doing so. So I think the one thing I have sort of an an opinion on my wife might talk about this. A lot is just to make sure you really know what you're voting for we we're in a sort of a area with a lot of rural communities around it and the more you talk to our neighbors who. Obviously, they say they vote for a Republican vote for Trump at the more. You talked about what's important. It's really they share everything that's important with us. And we built the other way. So a lot of times we have to think to ourselves are. We really voting the way we think we are. And the harder part is trying to ask them if they're really voting the way that they think they are. Well, I'm probably going to vote this year. And the reason why I'll probably continue to vote for my adult life. The reason why because I I tend to be a proponent of the democratic aspects of our Republic, and I think that it's important to contribute to your society. And whatever beneficial way that you can that starts with you. Personally, it starts with me. Personally. You know, we have to see the how the society we live in near us, and we have to make reflection alterations of as we see fit within ourselves and within the society around us. And I I believe that you need to be the change. You wanna see in the world? And I believe that you need to be the biggest and greatest proponent of your own beliefs in order to be represented thoroughly. So I believe empowerment of the individual beyond anything else and anything that detracts from that any anything that takes away somebody's ability or desire to uphold their own integrity or do what they need to do to be the. Person that they wanna be anything that makes them dependent on a system that. Ultimately can't be depended on. I think makes the society and the collective of people weaker. And so I I don't support anything that detracts from individual individual, Tommy. I'm definitely going to vote in twenty eighteen twenty twenty and every local election from now until then I have recently developed like a huge passion for politics and actually a lot of the jobs. I'm looking for our unification's positions for political organizations. And so I'm passionate about on a whole variety of issues. I think right now, probably my number one issue or definitely in the top three is immigration and kind of like encouraging diversity. I I know my life has improved so much because of the people who are different from me that I have met and people from diverse backgrounds that I've met and. It saddens me to see that not everyone feels the same way about meeting people who are different race or from a different country or from a different economic status. And so I think when we encourage diversity and encouraged like legal immigration like people from other countries to enrich our own country. Like, we definitely should be doing that. And so.

We usually. Suggests that people drink coffee within the first thirty days at its roasted. The sweet spot for perood coffee is like three days after its roasted, and I stress, oh, is like a week after throws do. We don't buy coffees that are like over a year off artist. That's not everybody, is it? No, it's definitely not because obviously prices drop the longer sits and it's it's really easy and tempting, especially with the blizzard to buy the bottom of the barrel cheaper stuff that you can, but that's compromise.

I mean, who doesn't. Welcome back to our recurring segment coffee. WCHS this week. When we've talked to Jim about his love for p. berry coffee, we decided to do them research. We discovered that the p. berry isn't a coffee from a specific region, but is in fact a mutation of the coffee cherry, the average cherry has to beans which are flattened together as they grow. The p. berry has only one being inside an shaped like a p. hence the name p berry. Does it taste better? Is it worth the extra cost to the different regions? It comes from and roasting methods use to roast, make a difference that my dear friends will be up to you the coffee drinker. So you mentioned the flattening of the berry and standard berries that have an effect on roasting and they call it a flat berry coffee while the berries that normally grow inside the cherry there to berries that grow inside the cherry as they grow. Oh, together they are flattened. However, the p. berry is because only one berries fertilized and it has the opportunity to grow into the shape of a p and when they're roasted the people Aries of roasted differently than the flat berries and how what is the percentage of berries that come out as p berry? So people aren't actually trying to create p berries. It's part of the natural process of growing coffees at what it is. It is the natural process, five to ten percent. All berries are peers very lamenting. Thank you. Thank you. Was thank you. Traveling America, coffee shop. And. Thank you for listening to the cross country coffee roadshow.

The that costs leaving is now is not kind of not making sense for the. While you earn in Los Angeles area has got to to leap a Beason life, not even like a high. Lifestyle. You need to be making a least like ninety thousand dollars a year where is almost impossible. About coming back to the to the issue is basically try to find out if he could get something done with controlling the price in the in the rent because is unreal. No, I'm not going to vote and I'll tell you why. I don't. I'm talking about national elections until there's a candidate I can really get behind. I don't see myself voting anywhere in the near future. So no, I won't vote and. I have a hard time voting on issues. I consider myself. I give a lot of uninformed opinions, but I feel like my uninformed opinions may be correct because information can skew the media can skew. So I try to think from commonsense points about Hayes. Is this right for the society or not? And so I'm not going to know until there's something I can really get behind. This might be an outlier spots, but I'm not going to vote because I'm reading cardholder not a US citizen, so can't vote. But some of the issues that I'm concerned about right now, I'm not too. I'm not too concerned with political or politics just because I'm not really keeping up with them all that much, but I am concerned about the greed that's going on. I think the need to have the best things the need to have. You know, the more expensive things and what makes you cool or what makes you fit in? I feel like that's a big social aspect that we need to change here just because we are a consumer country, but I feel as if we need to have the mindset of having enough is okay and with hobbies. I think that Trump was like everything. You know, if you can care for other people, you can say that I have no, and I can allocate this somewhere else. I can give this other people. I can hang out with my friends and be enough. I can give my friends somethings I can. You know, take some things from my friends and we all can be community together just giving.

We are accustomed Cup on this beautiful sunny day, and our next two guests will introduce themselves. My name is Sherry part into port well, good morning. So tell me a little bit about why you come to this particular store. I love certain players of copy copies are very distinct in how they taste some to me. I won't name the brand as almost burned taste. Others are just kind of washed out. They don't really have a lot of flavor and semi wish. Would have claimed the coffee pot a little more often. But here I always guaranteed great coffee. They have a lovely product. They do themselves so I can take it home grinded at home and produce wonderful coffee, which I really enjoy. Sherry. Have you always been a coffee kind of set something that developed later in your life. We always had coffee at home. When I was growing up, I've discovered how to go beyond folger's which is what my dad drank for seventy years. Waking up this long. Yes, yes. So just as we've traveled and I've tried different coffees and I think. America in general, is become aware of differences in coffee that become more particular about coffee. I drink. We'd been in Costa Rica and stumbled onto a coffee plantation down there. And one of their specialties was a p berry coffee, and it was just Alicia. How is that peop p berry different than standard. It's a very small being, and I think it's only produced a single being prepared as opposed to the regular coffee. And it's much. Softer tastier. It's just delicious being. So what have you found as far as the travel? What would be your. Biggest in the light meant that you think came about as a result of travel is just wonderful to visit with the people, particularly in Europe. They're wonderful. They're giving they love Americans. I don't know where the hatred for American seems to come from that. The people I've run into just love Americans. Do you think it's different seeing. Countries and different spots on a bicycle than it is through the car window. I certainly do we, we love to travel by bicycle. You get to see so much more of the country when you do rather than looking out the window of a bus or a car. And again, you get to stop and and meet people and spend some time with them. And it's really great. We traveled to New Zealand on one of these bicycle trips and we were on the South Island. And if you know new-zealand it's just nothing but mountains and rainforests and we were in much better shape than I am now, but we were writing up this horrendous hill and it went on and on and on, and I'm puffing and panting trying to make it up the hill. And we had good quality bicycles. Here comes this fellow with with a long white beard. Writing bicycle with balloon tyres head is entire life's possessions strapped on the back including a cast iron Skillet that must await fifteen pounds, and he ride rides up alongside of me and. If you know New Zealanders soon, the most pleasant and loving people you ever ran into any wanted to talk. So he rides up and he starts over, you made. And I'm, I'm. He went on for about five minutes trying to engage me in talking Beila gave up in Rhode off away from me, and I just felt like that was a million years old. That's Dade. Well, tell me a little bit about, and this is a this is always a difficult one, but kind of mullebeck in there and tell me what you would tell your twenty year old self hearing start with you forget about trying to plan things, joy what comes and learn to say yes, more often and travel more work took up a lot of my time and. We should've spent a little more with the family. It's the old one for the tombstone that says, I wish I would've spent more time at work. We see that very often when nine eleven occurred course all travel was thrown into a massive problems. We scheduled a trip to Italy another bicycle trip. The people were just unbelievably nice to us. They come up to you and say, how horrible situation wise and was there anything make do to make us feel more comfortable in the country? Tell me when while you were out of the United States, nine eleven was happening. What was the viewpoint of the rest of the world at that point? You think that because you were able to experience that firsthand will the people that came to us, we're just appalled by what had happened, and we're so sorry. Happen to us. The time they, they may have disagreed with our politics, but they felt like they needed to sympathize with what was going on in the United States and hand, task appearance, anything they could do to make it better. Sherry. How about story to tell when we got to Egypt, I was. Fascinated by the culture. Anything heard about scene. Egypt, the monuments is understated. It is more fantastic than you could ever imagine an Egypt. They believe that since the city has lights on, they don't have to run their headlights. So cars driving around no headlights. It is the quivalent being rush hour in downtown Chicago, and this is to two thirty in the morning. It's packed at the number of stores we passed were selling. Guns. One doesn't think of that just the entire culture. Is very unique. Fascinating people to talk to. They appreciated having tourists Americans there. Tell me a little bit about your favorite music artist or song. Do you have a favorite. Favorite group is the eagles. Probably keeping with our retirement mentality, take it easy as might favorite song.

Although we were unable to interview Brent, Kendra gave us a real insight into running a business with family in mind, and what is the true path to success? We are at custom Cup in Springfield, Illinois, and we're talking with owner of custom Cup, Kendra. Tell me a little bit about how you decided to start a coffee store in. Was this always in your blood or was this something that you dreamed up yesterday? Well, it was definitely my blood, but it was actually my husband's idea. We were always getting coffee mail like roast fresh roasted coffee from small roasters, and we thought it'd be fun to do as gifts or learn how to do it. We started on a wurley popcorn Popper machine, but he actually came up with the logo, the idea everything just on the couch. One night started a Facebook page, an internet, like a website, and I randomly saw, what did you do. And so then we took it down because I realize that you can't just do that. You have to like be a business. We're very different. What makes things work? Oh, he's so good at the computer stuff and all the technical stuff, and I'm more of the people person and it just funny the stuff that and then when we bicker because we have three small children, which they're just tired of what you got mad at him about at home. You're here and you're like, oh, darn it. I can't give you the silent treatment because I need you to order this because it just and we used to just be in this three square foot stuck in here with each other. And so if we ever wanted to like get heated, you know, you have to go where the sim. Sorry, just like even talk loudly because everyone would be able to hear you and then the kids were all we'd have to be here at night because he still works. So we'd all be on the floor of the kid be playing, and it was just, we look back at at finally. So we slowly worked from there. We slowly started doing the farmers market and running out commercial kitchens, and we grew into this. I was at home mom, so it was just something that we can do for extra money or something like that. Like when we first started going would be closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays because that's the days that we didn't have preschool. So it was just like we close at one because that's when I would have to go pick up the kids from school. So it was just definitely based on like our families schedule, and we started really small lots of baby steps because we just kind of saved and we just did kind of baby steps, but now it's been wonderful. What you what do you think is the biggest draw because there's a lot of coffee stores near what? Why are people coming in here? Oh gosh. I wish I knew exactly why they're coming in, but I love it because we're in the capital. So we're downtown. So there's state workers. There's just all sorts of different groups down here. A lot of lobbyists, a lot of lawmakers, let legislators it's very nice. Tell me little bit about some of the the pitfalls that you weren't anticipating when you start at the building the business that now have come about that you can warn somebody else about. There's always red tape. There's always something you didn't know about with our roaster. We didn't realize it had to go through three flight three stories for it to vent and how much that would cost or that when there's downtown events, they close on all the streets and sometimes you don't know when those events are and then you have no customers that day. So prepare for the unexpected for sure. Kendra. I'm wondering if you could give me your advice to your twenty year old self that you can accomplish something. I think when I was twenty, I had no idea what I was going to do, and I went to a school where most people knew what they're going to do. So I kind of, I think, gave out the little the, the things I thought were serious weren't. I guess I would think that being with us people or being meeting, these people are being around these people, but somehow make me cooler or whatever. But really it was justified found the the classes that we're actually interesting instead of trying to find a class that would fit into what I thought I was going to do. I think I would have taken advantage of the great education that was acceptable to me. And so that's one thing I really wish I would have done. Tell me your favorite artists your favorite album, your favorite musician. Now you're going on a desert island. You get one song. What are you gonna pick? Well, it would be white rabbit from

I'll be doing coffee conversations, percolating politics, and some indepth discussions regarding music. Now onto episode. Two in Plainfield, Illinois Plainfield was wonderful town. It had everything until nineteen ninety. The only f five tornado to strike anywhere in the country during the month of August struck Plainfield, killing twenty nine people and injuring three hundred fifty, three other people. And what did they do? Then they built the town exactly the way it was before wrong. The planty this the city planners decided we can either Bill forward or backward, and they chose forward. You will see an amazing metropolis. You can stroll down this historic towns treeline downtown while visiting European style, booties and eatery. I'm not sure it call it a metropolis though. Well, it's very cosmopolitan compared to what it was and you can even jog bike or walk on trails, connect the downtown to some pretty darn fabulous parks. We interviewed a number of owners. Baristas guests, and all of this is right in the coffee store, not hertzel's. We did not recruit anybody for the interviews. So these were the people that were in the coffee store at the time that we were there and wanted tell their own story. Each episode will be unique and focus on a different element, not only in the store, but in the community as well. Every episode on the cross country coffee road show will focus on something different at ten drops in Plainfield, the focus is mainly on coffee and music. That leads to our interviewee Erin. One of the owners at ten drops, and it started with Aaron wanting a good Cup of coffee and not wanting to drive a half hour to get it. We're sitting with one of the co, owners of ten drops coffee. First of all, I'm just curious about how you ended up here in Plainfield as far as just kind of this location in this community. Chris also work another business in Plainfield, but she owns it's a music school, and we both taught lessons out here and we're driving into Chicago to get coffee on the regular because we could not find any good coffee around here. Even like, you know, let's say ten town radius, like we'd go to neighbor Ville Joliet Aurora and like we just couldn't find we like. So we ended up driving into Chicago proper to get coffee very often. And it became an expensive proposition to continue to do that drive back and forth all the time. And we decided that you know, he was a hobby roaster and we had done some roasting in his garage and things like that. It's backyard and and we decided that this town was probably a good candidate for a coffee roaster just because the the people around here seem to be a little bit craft minded. They appreciate things like, you know that are made locally, you know, I think that's a that is a holdover from it being a farming community, even though it's growing into a bigger metropolis, they tend to like things that are made with care and they they like things that people pay attention to detail. So we decided to, we decided to give it a go. You know so far it's been working out very well for us. The town has responded quite well. I think a lot of our customers, our regular customers from bright in the neighborhood, and we do have some people that make a special trip to shop with us, or, you know, they want to land here's a destination, but for the most part, you know it's the, it's the people in the neighborhood that are that are just any us and hanging around. So they just like coffee and made a little bit better with a little bit more standards. So
