Joe Biden Struggles Through Sunday Sermon at Baptist Church
"Gave then he gave ketanji Brown Jackson a shout out, take a listen to how that went. Those are the words of kajan. Drowned Jackson. Our Supreme Court Justice. Oh, is that who that was? So we have video of this. You have to watch the video. There's a lady on the podium there. And I don't know, she's like a deacon at what a preacher at, what are they called their lady preachers at ebenezer? Anyway, she's up there. And she said there, edge the look of disgust on her face as she just shakes her head back and forth. We got to play that one more time. Those are the words of kajan. Drowned Jackson. Our supreme court justice. Supreme Court Justice Jumanji. Wow. So then Biden goes on and he commences to lying to the parishioners of ebenezer baptist church, most of whom it's a traditionally black church, but I saw a white dude in the choir. So it may not be a 100% black anymore. They got a little gentrification going on in the pews. Here's Biden cut 7. Unless they have one thing to rest, that may be a practicing Catholic, we should go to 7 30 mass every morning in high school and get on college before I went to the black church. Not a joke, and you know this. Okay, just curious here. I do not profess to be a theologian, or an expert in church history. But I have been a longtime baptist. And I'm curious, what exactly is the black church? Is that like a denomination or what is he talking about, going to the black church?

"Good news. Human beings are worthy of communion with God, because of what God himself did in Jesus Christ. And we are all invited to get in on this revelation, so to speak. We are all now invited to let Jesus draw near, to receive his love, to let that love transfigure us, and then to respond to that love. By going and doing likewise, by going and loving the enemy. Just like Jesus did, who is now living in our hearts and our souls. So, we don't deserve God. We are poor, but God himself has determined that he will gift us with himself, and therefore we have this inestimable worth and dignity. For someone who is entering into the school of prayer. They may have over the course of their lifetime felt that it's enough that I say my prayers. That I say the words that were taught to me. Isn't that enough? Isn't it enough that I go when I read my prayer book? Can I read my slaughter? And I read all these different things. Shouldn't that be what I've been asked to do? The fulfillment of my requirement. In the reading of prayers, what we want to pay attention to is where our heart is opening to intimacy. And of course, a duty is done. When prayers are read, a duty is done, and that has merit. But what we want to pay attention to is, as we are reading our prayers, are there any movements of deepening consciousness, or affect, love, insight? That these words are bearing to my heart and mind. See the words are not infertile, the words of any prayer book, or the word of God itself, obviously, all these words are fertile. They carry seeds of life with them. But we have to let the seeds implant in our soul which means we have to pay attention to the movements of our heart, as we're reading our prayers. So, as a person might be reading a morning offering or a morning daily prayer, of course you read it and you finish it and you say, amen. But perhaps the Holy Spirit would invite you to notice some things. They may actually slow down the reading of your prayers. So that you can literally receive, trinitarian love, as you are in the midst of reading. So he's reading prayers sufficient, probably not. Its meritorious but not sufficient. God wants more, he wants to give you more. In whatever level of prayer you're at, and whatever level of capability you have intellectually, and emotionally, and in your will, to receive what he wants to give you. Obviously he's never going to do violence to you. He's never going to make you love him. But he's always offering the mystery of the love between the father and the son at the level that you're capable of receiving it. At this particular time in your life, and how do you know what level you're at? Will you simply don't worry about things like that? As you're saying your prayers, you simply begin to notice when you sense your heart receiving his love. And just pause there. And be with him for a while. And do not artificially stop this communion. But just be with him for as long as it feels natural. And then go on and continue to read your prayers until they are finished. Any final thoughts on this first encounter with Pope Benedict's teachings on prayer? Well, of course, the whole church is overwhelmed by the depth and the substance of this Pope. Regarding the spiritual life, we will be unpacking his spiritual writings for centuries to come. Following the pontificate of John Paul the second, who certainly re gifted the church with orthodoxy. With a love for youth, with the cry for evangelization. Now we've been gifted with Benedict, who places all the gifts of John Paul. Into the depths of contemplation. And to be alive, as Catholics, during these two pontificates, is in a measurable grace. That we will probably only know of in heaven. How blessed we were by God. To be with these two men.

"Because after this, Philip kind of drops off the pages and we don't see a lot of him. So whatever happened to Phil. We find him again and axe chapter 21 versus 8. Now, as we read these two verses, 20 years have gone by. A lot of time has gone by. So listen to what we find. Now this is a low riding speaking of Paul and himself. On the next day we left and came to caesarea and entering the house of Philip. Entering that now it doesn't say Philip the deacon. Notice the words. He said, entering the house of Philip, the evangelist. Who was one of the 7, we stayed Goes on. Now this man had four virgin daughters who were profits. We're not going to deal with that today, okay? But 20 years have passed, Philip is no longer famous. But he's still faithful and he's still obedient. His four daughters are proof of that. Because what any home, my home, your home, whatever problems, mom and dad have, as far as weaknesses or getting along or attitudes, whatever that may be, you're going to find those in the kids. It's like father like son. You see something good in dad and mom. It's probably going to be in the kids. So what we find here is a man who is faithful and he has four virgin daughters who are lifted up to us as great kids. Now, there are exceptions to that. I get that, okay? I understand her exceptions, but overall, it's going to be like father like son, like mother like daughter. What we find here is Philip getting older. And even as he's getting older, he's still in touch with the spirit. He's in touch with God's word and God's people. And I want to close by reading one verse from psalm. I'm going to read a psalm 92, so I'm 92 versus 12 through 14. Closing thought. The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree. Now, ladies and teenagers, that's not letting you off, okay? The righteous man, woman, teenager, will flourish like a palm tree. He will grow like a Cedar in Lebanon, planted in the house of the lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God, and here's one I'm after. They will still yield fruit and old age. I don't know how old you are today, 20 or 80. I don't know. But we're all getting older and unless lord takes us through cancer or a car wreck. We will get old, is this your desire? They will still yield fruit in old age. I've been disappointed many times. I've talked to senior citizens. We've said, can you serve the lord by helping here, helping there and many times they would say, nope, I paid my dues 30 years ago, let the young people do it. That's not what this verse says. They will steal yield fruit in old age, and that's what we see coming out of Philip. A man who is yielding fruit in his old age. I hope that's your desire. I hope that's my desire. We have been challenged greatly and we still have to wrap this up next week. We have been challenged greatly to rely on the sovereignty of God, see the lord and the Holy Spirit, redirecting our lies, be open to it with a good attitude and we've been challenged to witness and speak up for the lord.

"China, it was a tremendous experience. It was a life-changing experience. And I wasn't the same after having been there, but on the way home, I'm saying, lord, thank you for letting me go there, but I really don't want to go back. Don't call me to go to China, please. That's not what we're going to see coming out of Philip. Anywhere, but there, lord, because no one lives in the desert. So Philip, I want you to leave this very successful ministry with a lot of people there. I want you to travel to a lonely road. And oh, by the way, you better get started because it's going to take you over two days to get there. You better get started. Now, God is directing Philip into the middle of nowhere for no apparent reason, Philip doesn't know what God is going to do. Why he's going to do it and it doesn't make sense. Again, remember, Philip is a deacon he's not an apostle. You would think the angel would ask the apostle. But he did not. He asked the deacon. So we see that the bar of service for a deacon can be a lot higher and more than feeding the widows and feeding the widows is very, very important. So Phillip is not only a good and faithful preacher, he's an obedient worker for the lord. Now, as a deacon, we know that he's filled with the spirit because the Bible tells us that, which means that he's open to the direction of the Holy Spirit. So we're going to see him going from speaking to large crowds in samaria to talking to just one man. He's going to leave samaria where this great movement of the lord is taking place to talk to one man. Now remember Philip is one of the believers that was scattered when Stephen was murdered and the believers scattered out of Jerusalem. He is one of them. Now he is living where he's planted. We talked about that a couple of weeks ago. Living, where you are planted. So the lesson here is we need to go where the people are, right? No. God's ways are not our ways. And we see that in Isaiah 55 8 Isaiah chapter 55 8 brayden you keeping up with me on this. Isaiah 55 8. For my thoughts are not your thoughts. Nor are your ways my ways declares the lord. So lord, what you're asking me to do here

"All right, so I have never no other hands went up. I suspect there have been occasions in my life when the lord protected me from an buy an angel, and I'd be glad to share those, but here we know for sure. But an angel spoke to Philip. We should stop and just think about that for a minute. Now the angel did not speak to Peter. He did not speak the job, John. He talks to Philip the deacon. The angel sends this deacon on a mission. He sends him to a road that goes to gossip. Now this, if you'll notice in our Texas says, this is a desert road. So the Bible kind of puts it this way. It's like, by the way, this is a desert road. Now, Philip could have said this. Well, I'm not going to say that because Phillips more godly man than I am. So I could have said something like this. I'll pull you down a little bit here. Okay. But lord, I'm needed right here. This is a very successful ministry. People are being saved. They need to be taught. Things are going just we're going perfect there. Now, you want me to go where? You want me to go where lord? The desert? Well, lord, I don't know if you've plugged in lightly, but people don't live in the desert. There's no one there. Now there's a lot of things there that I don't like lord. There's snakes. And our big bugs and spiders and things like that, and I don't like that, lord. But there's no one there. Now, Luke wants us to see what these early Christians are really like here. The Holy Spirit tells Philip to leave a very successful growing, thriving ministry, a movement of the Holy Spirit and moved to Gaza. A folks any way you look at it. This is a strange command. To fill it. And also Philip is not one of the apostles. The apostles job we've read it, we know it, was to minister the word and prayer, the deacon's job was to care for the physical needs of the people, the angel is speaking to the deacon, not the elders, not the apostles, and given him the responsibility of doing this. Philip is now raising the bar on the job description of the deacons. He's now raising at a step higher and he's the angels that go to the desert. Now the angel doesn't tell Philip. Why? He doesn't tell him who he will meet. You've heard me say before if I could add anything to the Bible, I would add these words. You want me to do what? That's what I see taking place here. I can add that so many times in the Bible. So now there is some confusion here. Because the Bible says this is a desert road. And as I studied the commentaries are somewhat divided.

"All right, ask chapter 8. Now we're going through the life of Peter. We don't see Peter today, but I want you to see the environment that Peter is living in and that he's working in and get an idea of that as we start to put some of these puzzle pieces together. If I summarize this chapter, I would use one word. And that would be witnessing witnessing. Now, if I use two words, I guess it would be three words. The sovereignty of God in witnessing. How many words is that? I want you to see both of those today. The sovereignty of God, how it's involved and witnessing when you speak up for someone. And we're also going to just focus on this theme for a few minutes. So now let's be honest, I think for I won't say for all of us, but I would say for many of us, most of us witnessing isn't easy. Now, I have met people that it just flows out of them. I'm not one of them. Most of us, if we admit it, we struggle in this area some. But yet even though we struggle, the command that we find in act chapter one verse 8 is still there. The theme verse of this book, and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and samaria and even to the remotest parts of the earth. That verse is still there. Now, why don't we witness more than we do? One reason, I think, is because many times we're just afraid. And we might think that we don't know how. Somebody might ask me something that I can't answer. They might ask me a question about the Bible and I may not have the answer. Well, I've said it before, you don't have to have the answer. You can say to someone, I don't know, but let me tell you what the lord has done for me. You just turn it right back to what the lord has done for you. And you know what the lord has done for you. So you're on solid ground when you go right back to that theme. Over time, we may not witness because quite frankly at times we just don't care. Now we're going to fill up and we're going to spend some time with Philip. Philip the deacon remember he's one of he's one of the original deacons. What a fantastic example Philip is to us. So we're going to learn a lot from this deacon today, and we're going to all be challenged by this deacon of how to practice evangelism. We need to study him as a model as the talks to a stranger on a lonely road. Now, we've heard in the Bible says that God's thoughts are not our thoughts and many times God will change our plans. Are you okay with that? When the lord changes your plan and you've got your schedule all set, I'm going to be here at 8 o'clock, 9 o'clock, 10 o'clock, 11 o'clock, and then God steps in and changes your plans. Are you okay with that? Or do you

"An advent reflection by deacon James Keating. One of God's attributes is his patience. He suffers his own creation as it comes to fulfillment in his love. The God that we worship is a God who truly loves us. And in this great love, he waits. He waits for us to respond to all that he has given us. And he doesn't simply wait in a passive way. He keeps loving us, keeps directing his love toward our hearts, to awaken them with a response. This is near the very core of what advent is about. God loving us so deeply, directing his love toward us. And him sharing his life with us, so that we might respond in kind. So that we might wait, and then receive, and then respond. To his great love. For more advent reflections from deacon James Keene, visit discerning hearts, dot com.
The Origin of the Diaconate
"Let's look at this. This is chapter 6 of the church. The church begins essentially. Jesus said he built his church upon the apostle Peter on that rock. And here in chapter two, we have the day of Pentecost and the birthday of the church right there. Now here we are four chapters later in chapter 6 and already, there are some issues. There are people there are factions on later on in first Corinthians will see even more kind of factions that are even greater in fact, we're going to see that in the apostles. But here's the first one in that first one is some people are being treated different than others. And that is not good. But it is not unexpected if that makes any sense. Because while the Holy Spirit is the soul of the church, so it's divine. The church still is made up of human beings. Who can fail, who do fail in so here we are. So then what happens to the 12 summoned the body of disciples to say, because it's not right, that here we are is the 12. We shouldn't give up proclaiming the word of God to serve tables, although that's really important to take care of the widows and orphans. So let's choose 7 men who are of good faith when basically this is the beginning of the deakin it. So the Greek word here that Luke uses is those to serve, so it yaku noi, or dacus, that's where in the Catholic Church we have deakins and I know in other churches they have that role of deacon. There's something to note about the role of deacon, but one is that they were anointed or sorry ordained very clearly in verse 6 that says these they set before the apostles and they prayed and laid their hands upon them. So that sense of here's an actual ordination. It wasn't like someone just chose themselves and said, I'll do it. I'll serve and they go off and go, no, this is actually an order in the early church. So the apostles knew that they were the episcopal, the episcopate, or the bishops. They knew that they were the Roy or the priests, and you have this yakini, or the deacons. Not only that, but the very next thing says that Steven, one of those. One of those deacons, who is ordained to serve a table, what's the next thing? The next time they're mentioned, it says that he is full of grace and power. He did great wonders and signs among the people, basically, he goes out and starts preaching and starts healing, and you're like, wait a second, bro, you just were ordained to serve at table, but here you are doing this. Supernatural ministry, which is remarkable and incredible. That maybe wasn't what the apostles had intended, but it seems like that was what got it intended

"In one we need bread and wine. That's it. Experience the simplicity of Salvation. Priest? Bread and wine. The priests can reconcile you and the priest will be the medium for transubstantiation for that beautiful mystery of the life death and resurrection of Jesus to come and invite us to participate in it. And that's all we need. Tell people of this simplicity. What's hard about Salvation is us leaving the self behind. Everything else has been supplied by God in complete simplicity. If we're going to stay out of sin, the last big paragraph there is we need the practice of asceticism. And of course, this is when everybody leaves the room. Because this is the crucifixion of the self. Asceticism it says in that little definition there is the struggle to desire and choose what we see in Christ. What do we see in Christ? The son in communion with the father. What is the cynicism to struggle to desire and choose? To be in communion with God. And to desire, you've got to pray for that. And to choose, you need the brotherhood to help you choose that. It is not good for man to be alone. Genesis says, because to be alone, is to leave yourself wide open to that horrible temptation to believe what Satan wants us to believe. That in God is a taker and not a giver. So we don't want to be alone. If you want less more immorality in the world, make this community in this room bigger. Lonely people are the next perpetrators of evil and lonely people are the next victims of evil. You want less evil, deepen your community. And in this way, we will have the strength to choose and to desire to be like Christ. To be a son who lives in communion with God. We will stand in peace before our passions. Because God is refashioning us into men who love the life he wants us to participate in more than we love the life of immediate gratification. He's going to transfigure us from men who love immediate gratification into men who love the life of Christ. We have to pass through crucifixion first, but with the sacraments and with fellowship, nothing is impossible for God. So we'll just be with Jesus just for a few minutes in silence. And then if I said anything that's confusing or you have any comments or questions, we can talk about that. But let's just be with Jesus for a few minutes in silence. A father, son, and Holy Spirit, come and be with us. You've been listening to the eucharist and hope for conversion with deacon James Keating.

"Nice. And you're the member of the presidency he was on the previous day presidency as well. And I'm always encouraged by his stories like yours where because sometimes a new state presidency or bishopric is called and I think most of the work could probably guess who's going to be. And of course, I believe in the revelatory process and all that. But sometimes I think we default to really safe safe individuals who we know have a history of leading and that they're not going to do anything too crazy. So say it, we're going to give John a goat this. And the inspirations there. And you walk in there with not much experience, but can still do a good job. Yeah, maybe. Maybe. And doing a good job in your experience. Yeah, yeah. I think I came from a large family as well Kurt and I think my dad was a stay present back in the 1980s. So I think a few people may have just seen when this is present deacon Sony, of course, he's pretty good guy. He wears a white shirt anyway. So maybe the third along those lines and actually just on that. I remember going in the empty sea in London as a young missionary. And we stared in the accommodation center and things maybe 30 of us there. But the MTC president knew my parents pretty well. They were good friends. President Roberson, who was a track athlete and my dad was a track athlete, and so they hit it off from a leadership perspective. And so when they found out that president deacon is coming to the MTC, the thought this is wonderful. It's going to be such a lovely, wonderful young man. And so I came along and there was one night while we were there, we were playing cricket baseball. I've seen in the movies, but we're playing this in the dormitory in the accommodation sense. That wasn't allowed. And one of the teachers is banging on the door and I just said, look, just stay quiet. Just stay quiet, but everybody bursts out laughing and so anyway, we get in there the next day and I was the ringleader of this bearing in mind. We get in the empty seat the next day, president Roberts and just goes crazy on us.

Deacon's corn president and I present deacon deegan and then 7 on the state presidency president deacon and how does that work? So there's a few people who maybe new to the church thought that president deacon was a title. Just the title stroke name. Yeah, it is quite unique, I guess.

"Hit last year, people reacted in different ways from complete denial to volunteering to help others. Some people flouted the rules, while others didn't leave the house, and some even used it as an excuse to hurl racist insults and physically assault other people. These actions may have seemed unpredictable. But a group of epidemiologists was not surprised They'd seen this all play out in another pandemic in 2005. One that happened online in a video game called World of Warcraft, players there became infected with the virus due to a glitch in the software. Side fry producer Daniel Peter Smith is here to talk more about that. Hey, Daniel. Hey, John. So briefly. What is World of Warcraft for those who don't know? Yeah, it's one of the biggest online multiplayer games of all time. It's been around since 2004 and basically you're playing in this huge medieval fantasy environment with millions of other people across the world. You can play as an orc made warrior. That kind of thing so kind of dnd stuff. On Deacon, explore the world and fight monsters and go on quest with other people I've heard about it never played myself that this m pretty cool. So how did this all start with the epidemic in the game? Yes. So in 2005 Blizzard, the company who makes world of Warcraft they created a new challenge. And basically was you go to this one area you battle of big villain, which is called a bus. This big snake demon thing that would cast a spell on you. That gave you a kind of infection, And this infection was called corrupted blood and the small basically, just like slowly sapped your health away while you were fighting it. It would obviously affect you in battle. But once you defeated the boss, you could like go out into the main world and you're basically non infected anymore so individual players could get infected while battling the boss. But then how did the spread the other players? Great question. So there was a bug in the software where if you had a pet with you can have these like companion pets. Your pet would also get affected on when you left the area and went back to the main world. Pet continued to carry the corrupted blood infection, and it would spread it to other players and other characters in the game, and they would slowly die. So this is basically a computer virus that was acting like a real virus, right? And this sparked the interest of some epidemiologists who happen to be playing the game at the time, and I talked to Eric Molinski about this. He's the host of the podcast called Imaginary Worlds. Which is a show about how we create these worlds and where we suspend our disbelief. And he reported the story about this outbreak and how studying virtual epidemics can teach us how to deal with real ones. And I started by asking Eric how the virus started to spread in the world, and he told me that in a virtual world, it spreads very easily and very quickly. In the real medieval world, you know, plague would would travel about as fast as it is the horse But you know, in this magical medieval world, you can teleport back to cities. And a lot of these cities have what we call in PCs non playing characters, so it could be like a shopkeeper or guard or, you know, just sort of townsfolk in the background. But they all got infected with this thing. So they were walking around, infecting everybody else. A symptomatically, which is also a very weird thing, which has been which is not supposed to happen. And so that's another way that they disease spread really quickly and like did you have to be like really close to them toe like actually get it like how it works with Cho. But, yeah, Yeah, You definitely need to be close to get to get to them. And also, you know, the longer you play in the game, the more sort of health and wealth you build up. So you you could almost be like the NPC is where you feel. It's equivalent of you have a cough. You know when people get Coben and they say, Oh, it wasn't that bad. It was just like a mild flu. Or maybe somebody has access to, you know, very, very high and medicine. You know, it's different from some of the lower level players that people that just don't have the time to invest that much into their characters and build up. That health and those people were just getting wiped out like crazy, and you would really get sick. I mean, you would just listen. I like about the blood would come out of it wasn't it Wasn't like you just sort of like turned into a skeleton and disappeared. Yeah, that is pretty graphic. So this country attention of some epidemiologists in effect, Furman, who at the time was at Princeton and Eric Lofgren. So they were gamers. Also, they were like, also in World War craft at the time. Yeah, What was fascinating to them was not exactly the way that the virus spread in the game as much as the way people reacted to it, because his epidemiologists they would often do you know models try to figure out how are people going to behave on economist have talked about this lately to that for so long. They're mathematical models would assume that in any situation People would behave what they were considered to be rationally and so with world of Warcraft, Here's a virtual environment where most these characters are being controlled by real people, which meant that they could study the behavior in real time as to how people reacted in the situation like this. It was really fasting to them because they were reacting in ways that no mathematical model would have predicted. Yeah. Can you describe those reactions into some of the amazing similarities to hell? That epidemic mirrored our real life pandemic? No. Sure, So has the menu before the sort of subset of players who were inadvertently responsible for spreading the disease were hunters who they're, you know, they're digital pets got infected, So there was a lot of sort of scapegoating against these, You know hunters, and I mean, it's a much, much more serious situation, real world. But there's a lot of anti Asian racism that you know, immediately started when covert 19 came to the U. S. It is still going on today. There were fake cures being spread around and just Ton of misinformation and conspiracy theories. People thought the company of Blizzard had created it on purpose. Or maybe there was some disgruntled employee who had created it. It was very hard to get correct information in the sea of misinformation. Another thing that was really interesting was that there were people that were good Samaritans people with very high health points. You know, people had a lot of health and wanted to help use their you know, go into infected areas and use magical spells to cure people, But very often they overestimated how healthy there Characters were and then they would get infected well, and then you know, there's a subject you've talked about before on the show Briefers. Um, you know, in this case, you know, it's people that basically have very troll ish behavior online, and there are people that would actually go up and try to infect other people, Which you know doesn't happen very often. You very rarely hear stories about that. But actually, Blizzard wanted people to do social distancing. But you know, in a video game where the whole point is that you get to interact with other people through their avatars. Social distancing is not a fun way to play the game. And they were just a lot of people that simply didn't care. People are flooding the rules. People were being jerks, and then the other people who are taking it very seriously. We're upset, and we're just saying, you know, you're ruining the game for us. This is not a joke for us. And that kind of conflict in terms of you know how seriously do you take it from? How much do you follow the rules? That, you know, had a lot of interesting parallels as well. How How long did the epidemic last in World of Warcraft and how many players got infected? Unless for about a week, which obviously compared to what we've been through doesn't sound like much, but so at the time World War craft had about 6.5 million players around the world and over half of them. About four million were affected by the virus. So it was huge. I mean, you had to just kind of like, you know, escape to a virtual mountain top and let your character just sit there for the whole week. You go to your your virtual cabin in the woods if you wanted to avoid. This thing or just not log on which obviously for you, cos disastrous, All right. It's like, oh, boy. Time to go to the top of a mountain. Do nothing. My favorite game log back in and see if my character is still staring at the sky so the virus is spreading in the game. There's like unchecked spread. People are traveling all over the place, and eventually, things like Stop mirroring. Reality as I understand it, because unlike reality, World War craft has an all powerful game developer named Blizzard, right? Yeah. I mean, this is the thing where you know you wish you were living in a virtual world. They took control of the whole thing there. First. They tried to put in a bunch of patches to stop the virus and that wasn't working, And eventually they had to just reboot the whole system. Yeah. So one of the things I thought was really fascinating about your episode is that the epidemiologists really anticipated this wave of noncompliant behavior that popped up with our current pandemic. I'm going to play this clip from your podcast, imaginary worlds. Epidemiologist Eric Lofgren talking about that, and I think one of the things that we're seeing in parallel is a lot of people don't take infection seriously, if it is not personally a risk for them. So you see a lot of people talking about Corona virus, and I'm like, Well, I'm young. I'm healthy. The mortality rate isn't that high for me. So why should I care? And I think in the corrupted blood case There was a lot of that similar thing where, you know, Okay, This is bad if you're high level, but it's not all that big a deal. But like the server is being destroyed by this epidemic. The economy has been crippled. Everybody can we cooperate for a little bit and get rid of this? Is, I think, sort of the important parallel there. Yeah, it's just incredibly important that epidemiologists are not taken by surprise. To some extent. I mean, obviously they're surprising things about it, but it was not a complete shock to them. And I think because this kind of began to lay the groundwork for epidemiologist understand that people are not going to react like mathematical models and It's an important part of their messaging as well to the public is to is to anticipate that this is gonna happen and again, not be surprised by it. Yeah, we've had quite a few epidemiologist on the show over the past year. And it's almost like they have to be kind of part medical scientist Part social scientist It seems like yeah, they're really inseparable. And again, I've noticed, you know, economists over the years have been talking about this as well that too often that they based things off of these sort of mathematical ideas of what people will do, and people are obviously ah, lot more complicated. It's ironic that what seems like kind of virtual people You know, even though they're controlled by real people is is kind of what made them realize that Do you know what direction was like to this paper when it came out? And if it in the paper had any impact in the scientific community, especially in covert, so was I Guess it is huge. I'm in the paper when when the paper came out, it was huge. Eric Glass granted. Nina for vermin give a lot of talks. It was generally very, very well received paper people were pretty fast in and buy it, and it's and and had a really fun. You know, element do it in terms of video game that I imagine a lot of epidemiologist papers. Don't you know? Don't have so What do you take away from the story after you finished working on it? Well, the thing that I really thought about a lot was what counts is human contact to some extent, you know, that's so interesting to watch. These people interact virtually through this, you know, in in this virtual world because we've all been doing that over the last year. In a way we've all become Maura like players in a video game, you know where we have You know, even when you're on zoom. I mean, you're sort of constantly watching yourself on zoom and it's like there is kind of an avatar version of me that's interacting in this virtual world. And I just I feel like in a way, the whole world has become more like the world of work Craft. Over the last year, and I really began to see that coming when I worked on this episode, and so it's kind of played out exactly the way I thought.
Here's how to support and celebrate Seattle's first-ever Black Restaurant Week
"There Seattle restaurant week and how this works is hundreds of restaurants in the city participate. They have a special three course menu with a set price, And this is all designed to lower diners in But this week is Black Restaurant Week, which is also a marketing campaign to encourage people to eat and black owned rest. Drawn. But the founders of Black Restaurant week which they're based in Houston, actually, but they have expanded out to the whole country, said that a lot of restaurants that are owned by black people don't have these fancy menus and three course menus, so they were always being left out. So I spoke with Reginald Robinson. He owns Alphas, Louisiana, Cajun seasoning and spices in tents, and he decided to open his Alien store because he's from New Orleans. And he couldn't find any of the foods and products that he misses. Red beans and rice are greens, Po boys, catfish, We have alligator. We have the stuff called Boo Dan. We have crawfish and everything in our story is have that Louisiana brand to it. Gonna top sellers is familiar at being because you know, everybody On Mondays they cooked red beings down in Louisiana just to start. Thing they do. Sometimes we even bring blueberry ice cream here. Anyone down south Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, your eyes light up. People be like, Oh, my God, you have bluebell. So Fallon Farrell, who is one of the founders of Black Restaurant week, she says, Because it's systemic racism, it could be harder for a black person to get a bank loan when they're opening a restaurant. The issued in our community is that a lot of businesses a started with people's personal savings credit cards. Usually when they do get loans. They have higher interest rates, so they just don't have that financial will go room. It's really sustained major hits to a business and so you know, a lot of them really weren't able to get the first round of P P p loans and She says, because of the marketing that happens when they do black restaurant week. They really do bring new customers. And I think last year the average ourselves increases about 30% most businesses. CIA, increasing their social media following us well And then when we talk about ongoing business opportunities, people call us all the time. They because all the time about like, Hey, we're hosting a food truck festival. Give me your list of black on food trucks, You know, so it just creates ongoing business opportunity. So the cool thing is, we kind of talked businesses like Welcome to the network because we're always able to push back our opportunities for you. So I thought to Reginald about if he wants to be identified as a black owned business, you know, at this point, there are a lot of women who say I don't want to be the best female stuff. Can I just be the best chef and I wondered if Reginald just wanted to be a business. Until people realized that you know everybody's equal. You may have to do that so we can get attention. But my whole dream is that you just treat black restaurants just like you a tree. Another restaurant. People don't believe it. But as black owned business, you have to go that extra mile. Just to prove what other people don't have to go through, and that's my dream and hopes one day did. We don't have to do that. It is black History month. That's why I thought that it would be a great opportunity to do this story. I don't have it online yet. But in about an hour if listeners go to my northwest dot com slash Rachel Bell, you can find a directory of black businesses in the region on Deacon Go. We don't support local businesses because they all need your money right now.

Today we now return to baptism. Born from above with deacon james kinney. You're not left orphaned in this task of this. What may seem like a monumental task that we are being presented with being the ministers of to our children. As you've talked about and previous session we are given the aid of godparents. Those men and women of faith who hopefully are on the same journey that we're on and can be in of assistance. Yes and again the godparents and this is more or less a pragmatic relationship depending upon you know the couple but the godparent unfortunately has become somewhat of a marginalized symbol in the consciousness of some and also The godparent as seen as a An honorific title for the next in line of our family so yes. My brother was the godfather of my first child. So that means my sister's going to be the god mother of my second child and on down the line as an honorific title. Almost something that the family can claim as a right you know. Hey bob was i. i'm susan. I'm second so all of this again. You know nothing so nefarious about that. But we're trying to raise the consciousness level. The godparent is truly the guardian angel. The intercessor baby. The one who wants to battle for this baby in prayer and i know some couples that will have their children on their refrigerator or other places a list in their prayer book. What whatever but that this. These children our prayed for regularly As as they come to mind and so there's a little bit of a formation that's needed for the godparents but what's most effective i think is if the parents themselves have a little conversation with the godparents. And say this is. This is really my heart's desire. The reason i'm asking you to be the godmother of my child. Yes you're my sister a yes you're next in line but i really just want you to pray for this baby for me until you die and to help you out a little bit. I'm going to give you this little prayer card. Perhaps with the baby's name on it or or some other type of prayer card. That will help you remember that you're standing up there with us on the day of baptism because i need in. This baby needs your intercessory prayer. Also it has been somewhat of a popular tradition that maybe the godparent would be the one who also gives religious gifts to the child as they grow older. My first son. Christopher has a wonderful godfather who up until christopher was twenty years old or so would every year. Send a religious book. Religious item put a prayer of encouragement in christopher's Birthday card about the faith and he. He did his duty wonderfully as godfather so instead of just Here you fill the space. Next to the baptism font. I would encourage parents have just a little private conversation about the beauty and the dignity of this great Office of godparent for my child and perhaps promote the faith in whatever way you see mix it seems expedient which is promote the faith because my child needs to hear it beyond a my own parenting so i invite you to promote the faith that something like that to the godparents. I think would be very helpful. Everything we do in our liturgy has significant way to it are responses are vows that we take we respond and we say we are ready we do. I accept this. I take the sun. It's not a ceremonial action. So when a god parrot is asked the question. Are you ready to help. The parents of this child and their duty christian parents their response needs to be one. That's been thought out as well as all of our responses. I think that's part of the problem in our liturgies is that sometimes. We think that they're ceremony and not a significant covenant entering type of relationship that we've enter into with god moot yes especially there again the churches asking knowledge and freedom in this question. Do you know what you're doing. You're freely doing it. Are you aware. the godparents again Commit to something they commit to This relationship with the baby a spiritual relationship with the baby. And i think that the the godparents themselves should see this day this baptist multi as perhaps a deepening or even beginning of their own prayer life if they could just see this question as an.
After Decades-Long Push, It's Not Clear Who Will Bid In Arctic Refuge Oil Lease Sale
"The trump administration has fewer than three weeks to go and is working to lock in oil drilling in the arctic. National wildlife refuge. It's holding an oil lease sale next week. Deacon handling of alaska's energy desk reports it's unclear. how much oil is under the refuge. Supporters of drilling in the arctic refugees coastal plain often point to its oil potential as a reason to develop the remote stretch of land president. Donald trump has described it as the gravesites of energy in the world. But while geologists say the rock formations oil seeps and old seismic results seem promising. The data available is still limited. We don't know very much about this area. David house neck is senior. Research geologist at the us geological survey and he helped with the agencies last assessment of oil potential and alaska's coastal plain back in the late nineteen ninety s. The usgs calculated anywhere from about four to twelve billion barrels of recoverable. Oil house. next says that's a whole of oil but also a huge range in part because it's based on seismic data from the nineteen eighty s. Technology has come a long way since then going into a lease sale in the coastal plain with the only data being thirty five year old. Two d data is quite unusual house. Neck says what's also missing from the usgs assessment is any data from actual wells in the refuge. There's been just one exploratory. Well drilled in the coastal plain also back in the eighty s on alaska native land but the results of that test well are a closely guarded secret confidentiality agreement and never an end date on it. Mark myers geologist and former commissioner of the alaska department of natural resources is one of the few people who have seen the results from the test. Well outside of the big oil companies that paid for it. So i can't comment on in terms of what i saw even though it was a lot of new york times. Investigation based on legal documents suggested the results were not promising but the amount of oil is just one factor companies will consider when deciding whether to bid in the alaska sale. Another is the money. Myer says it's already more expensive to drill in the arctic compared to say texas on top of that oil prices are still low after an oil price war and the coronavirus pandemic hit the industry. Hard low prices have fallen down to a level that we larry little capital for exploration in these companies. So that's one of the biggest negatives. There's also the controversy says weena gun. An analyst with the energy research firm would mackenzie. The refuge is home to migrating. Caribou polar bears and other wildlife and that has prompted multiple lawsuits to block drilling there. Some big banks site climate change and say they won't fund oil projects in the arctic. An amount of i guess public opinion the it wouldn't necessarily be good p for them to be seen as ruling and the article drilling and environmentally sensitive areas. But perhaps the biggest uncertainty of all is the changing administration. President elect joe biden says he opposes drilling in alaska's refuge although if leases are finalized before he takes office. It's not clear how he would stop it for npr news. I'm teagan hanlin in
Progressive Influencer vs. David C. Smalley
"Today we're gonna talk with a content creator. I'm gonna kinda give you some behind the scenes of what goes on in creating content on multiple platforms but then we also have a little bit of a disagreement. And i want to dive into that too and again had those nuanced conversations that you've come to love as part of this podcast so without further ado let me go ahead and bring on the guest. Please join me in welcoming bun daddy to the podcast. It's look. I told you it was going to be cheesy applause. Remember i said that. i'm elliott. Yeah you're familiar. What i've been around. Yeah that's the podcast. That's you know for some reason. I've i space that for just a second and let me just so so let me. Just tell people how i found you. I i came across one of your videos on. Tiktok was life changing for me. it really was. It had a had a major impact on me and it was really empowering should say and then so i followed you on tiktok you have a huge following and it kept growing and kept growing up over six hundred thousand followers or something and at one point you went live and i joined your live and i heard you say oh david smalley just joined and i was like she knows who are you and how do you do and then we started. We started talking. And you're like is listen to the show. I devoured countless hours of the show and probably still scratch the surface because countless hours. Listen to one episode. that's you. I can count them usually about two or three but so how'd you remember how you found the podcast and was like a super long time ago. Yeah no it was. When i was. I had just had my deacon conversion experience from my christianity. And i was literally on whatever podcast app i was using. I searched different Buzzwords like atheism. And i there were a couple of different secular and search for dogma and yours came up as dogma debate back when it was dogma debate and i kind of like i thank my teeth into it because it was so it was ground level. It wasn't anything that i had to really have a lot of. You know like. I had understanding both sides of things but it was an unintimidated thing to approach as opposed to many other things that i had experiences right. That was that was kind of the goal. And that was the goal when i wrote my book to every atheist stuff. I found anything that was either atheist based or christian based or debate related. It was a lot of times. It was really intimidating. It was really. It was like richard dawkins level big words on top of big words on top of concepts on top of things. Like solipsism and methodological naturalism and part of me would just kind of glaze over and go. I don't i mean. I'm sure these aren't complicated subjects but it it didn't feel inviting and so i intentionally wrote my book in a way that would be inviting in and created my show to be the same way. So it's it's great to know that that that it did have that effect. Oh absolutely i mean it was definitely the first kind of it was the first big like involvement or investment. I had in anything in atheist community alongside a couple of other ones that i kind of pieced together and picked and pulled from different episodes of podcasts. But this was the one that i had playing over and over and over while i worked so cool brings a huge mall my face thank you for that. And it's it's kind of crazy because you know that had an impact on you. I'm honored i'm flattered him so glad that that happened and without even knowing that i found you and you had an impact on me in my personal life and so the fact that we were able to connect and now i've become friends is just just a wonderful sort of closing the full circle within the universe. it's it's really a beautiful thing and i have. I finally found the original video. I found of yours now. A lot of people out there may be thinking. Yeah i scroll through tiktok. Sometimes it's just a bunch of teenagers dancing and it's stupid. Unfortunately that is the case for a portion of the app. But that's there's so much more on tiktok. There are so many Political movements and you know people just inspiring each other and thought experiments and magic tricks and skills to learn if you want you use the app for a while. It starts to learn your behaviors in learn what you like and if you do the right things and like the right things it will guide you to really really good content and and. I'm glad that i did that. So i want to play the video that i that i found of yours. That made me a fan. Okay this is. This is deep stuff. And it's just so it's so insightful. And i feel like it. It's it's so palatable in a way that it is generic yet specific enough that if this is happening in someone's life they can definitely Apply it in the right areas that that's what's so great about it so i'm gonna play the message right now. He co q. something. I learned in boating school ak therapy and books. We've all heard people say you teach people how to treat you. And basically what that means is you are responsible in your relationships for establishing and enforcing boundaries that other people have to follow in order to maintain access to you. Those are really key distinction here. And that's the difference between responsibility and if a meteor lands on my car and decimates it. I'm not faults. I didn't do anything. But i'm still responsible for getting myself. New car or mode of transportation because taking responsibility is not the same as accepting blame and the same goes for relationships you are responsible for setting and enforcing your own boundaries. But you are not at fault for someone's actions overstepping those boundaries. You teach people how to treat you by taking on the responsibility of revoking access to you when they don't respect your boundaries. You don't teach people how to treat you by accepting fall for things that other people do.
