Protecting Your Assets

"On my guest. Today is Devon Miller. Helping Fortune one hundred clients with their intellectual property Devin realized that there weren't many good intellectual property legal resources for startups and small businesses. As, an entrepreneur himself, he wanted to help other small business. Owners learn about patents, trademarks and copyrights. So they can build value into their businesses and protect their assets. And that's what we're GONNA be talking about today. Thanks so much for joining me Devon. Pleasure happened to be on. Glad to have you, so talk to me some about how a business goes about protecting their brand or Invention! Yes. Oh, maybe it's easiest I'll give you a really. Quick overview is kind of the different areas. You can go about protecting year their cyber small, this or any business, so if you're look at if you hear people Kinda referred to, there's kind of an umbrella term that would be intellectual property. That kind of if you WANNA referred to the the big. Big The big topic that it'd be intellectual property, and then underneath that you basically have what are patents, trademarks and copyrights which are then what used to protect so patents are gonNA. Go towards anything. That's an invention, so if you creating it has a functionality invention as a product is software anything that you know does something that's going to be under patents. Trademarks are GONNA. Be More for a brand of anything about anything that's building your brand whether it's logo whether it's a product name or company, name or catchphrase anything it's basically brand related is GonNa fall under trademarks and copyrights are going to be more for creative work, so if it's a book or a video or a picture or something that's more on the creative. Creative nature that you're grading than it's GonNa Kinda Copyright, so those are kind of the three areas that you can protect her protector, grow or protect your business depending on which one and a Lotta. Times you'll have you know multiple ill fall under multiple those verticals those are kind of the main areas that you use to protect your brand or protect your business. Okay. That's great, okay so. Let's start a break it down, so talk about wide patents are so important for protecting an invention. Yes, so there's a few reasons and. Always joke that you know. Ask An attorney, a question and Dwayne. TURT- whether or not they tell you the answer is it depends because that's all out over solitary question, but I'll give you a better answer than it depends so, but so when I look at patterns, and you can always protection. There's really a few different strategies that companies are going to look at for why they may WanNa. Patent or why that may be useful, and so one is obviously to protect an event. You think hey I'm putting in a whole lot of blood sweat. Sweat, and and money to develop a product or to come up with something now want to be able to protect it. I mean meaning I don't want somebody to take all my hard work, and then knock it off or copy it and be able to say thanks for all that time and effort now I'm going to do it faster cheaper. Better not have spare the expensive all the development. That's where he are one reason you get. A patent is in order to protect that. That work has become an actual asset or right. Then you can go at enforce and stop others from knocking offer copying all of your your idea and your invention with that the other one is also more on. It's an actual assets kind of investable that you know you. You can use that as an asset of the company, so if you're to think of if you're going out to angel, capital or venture, capital or angel, investor, venture, capital, or someone that you're trying to. To even vans even use them as collateral for a loan, but you're actually away to capture a lot of the asset of your company, if a lot of it is an in your head or development are and be know the end product is great, but there's a lot of time there for research one way that you can actually capture that as an asset of your company that then you can get in valuation, increase, evaluation, bomb, or way trying to do so those are generally. If, you're looking at why you'd WanNa Patent and what the? Reason. Motivations are as one as either to protect and capture all the time and effort money into research, and the other is to build as an asset to the company.

Statue of former Washington Redskins owner removed at RFK

The Odd Couple with Chris Broussard & Rob Parker

Statue of former Washington Redskins owner removed at RFK

"Okay. Players in the NBA. Wow, that's that's that's him a revelation. My goodness be sure to catch live editions of the odd couple with Chris Broussard Rob Parker Weekdays at seven PM Eastern Four PM Pacific on Fox sports radio and the iheartradio APP. There's an interesting story that came out today. The statue in Washington the statue of the former redskins owner George Preston Marshall was removed from RFK stadium. So, he was against, he was the former owner, but he was against integrating the franchise in the early nineteen sixties. So props to them for removing it. But I. Here's what I'm going to say as we see all of these confederate statues. Flags being removed now you you see the statue of the redskins owner. There was another one I can't remember the college. I think it was a college perhaps where there was another statue removed. I say go. Let's go the whole way. And start changing the names of these teams that are these nicknames that are Indian nicknames and look I'm not an expert on native American culture. But I I would say leave it up to the native Americans. But! Redskins is a racial slur. That'd be like the. Hat calling the team. The say ambles or the end words. I mean that's what it is, and my thing is this. If we really are against racism. You can't just be against racism that affects black people. You have to be against racism that affects all of the people that have been hurt by it in this country and the native Americans clearly. Were hurt by it. And so the only difference Allison. Obviously, there were different forms of oppression. Slave reverses annihilation darn near annihilation. But. The only difference in why the names of these native these native American nicknames remain. Is because native Americans by and large don't have the power in American society that blacks do so. Blacks have the power to make noise. We have become part of popular culture through our athletes are entertainers politicians? We have actors in the whole nine yards we have. People who do we have enough power to make noise to complain to March to protest and we have enough numbers being twelve thirteen percent of the population. So, they wouldn't dare have a team nickname a black slur at this point. And now they're removing all these other elements of the culture that have been offensive to black people, but we gotta do the same thing for the native Americans they just don't have the population to make a lot of noise about it or the power, but if we're really against. Him How can we pull down these symbols of black Oh Prussian, but not pulled down these symbols of native American oppression. And I don't look I. Don't know about the seminoles. Is that you know again I would leave it up to the native Americans. But if the native Americans, I know, some of them are differ in their opinions, but get their leaders. To African Americans. Get our leaders to speak on stuff. Get their leaders if they're leaders feel like these things are offensive. The braves the Indians the Redskins, maybe even the chiefs. If they feel like they're offensive change the names period and I think it should be. There should become a part of the conversation. This is interesting. Chris I gotta be I gotTA. Plead ignorance here I never looked into what the name redskins beans. Did you ever think to look it up or anything? Well, just think about it, though Redskins, it's like saying black skins are yellow skins, or I mean we know the contentious relationship to the least between the whites and the and the native Americans. When I grew up. Honestly you know it was the stereotype of scalping. Indians and things like that. Those were stereotype. Even Cater Bait yesterday I learned. Something I'd never knew that's enough I. Had you not the black? The black players didn't know and that's my point. If we are eliminating stuff like that and I'm not saying we shouldn't, but that's minor stuff right there. There's a lot of mine. American there is a lot of minor stuff, and this is interesting because we're seeing. We're trying to seem like. We're getting rid of all these symbols. Guy That you said they were moved to statue. George Preston Marshall, so he and a group bought the Boston braves, and they ha. They had also the braves and the Redskins, so there was some kind of connection for them to native Americans now I don't know why. If you're naming a team, you would name it the braves and the reds. Would you name it after I mean most the bears, the tight you know, most of these names are are yeah. Boy. I guess cowboys is. Doesn't make sense to me my only pushback and again I'm not saying this shouldn't be done is. If, we're trying to tell these young athletes. Hey, Dwayne Haskins quarterback of the redskins. You shouldn't suit up this fall until they changed the name of the Redskins, and then we pit the young. african-american quarterback and his whole team will, it wouldn't be a

Toward A Meaningful Life with Rabbi Simon Jacobson

"Already everybody welcome to the addicted mind podcast. My guest today is Rabbi Simon Jacobson, and to he is going to talk about making meaning out of suffering so Simon Communities yourself short full, Dwayne, it's great to be here. Thank you for having me and especially in these times where we all digging deeper so as you said name Simon Jacobson I am an author of a famous book called toward a meaningful life as well as other books, most of the Dean and founder of the meaningful life center. That's www meaningful life dot com. I'm a counselor and the mentor to many many articles really all. All, about bridging the spiritual and the secular, how to find deeper meaning in our modern times so I call from many different sources, especially my own background, my Jewish background from mystical teachings, but primarily make very relevant and applicable to real life on the ground, not just an abstract, but life skills and tools, and I can say last month or two. I've never been as busy because of the pandemic. That's caused people to be digging deeper, looking inside their hearts and souls. When you're outer stimuli, some I've been disrupted than the only other stimuli you have is from within absolutely and. Wasn't for all the grief and the loss and the health challenges is really like a spiritual wakeup, call, and so many which I think that's so much why I wanted to have you on the PODCAST, because as we're going through cove nineteen, and were forced to stop and were forced to look on. We're forced to be with ourselves, which is very much the opposite of addiction where when we're an addiction where we're striving to be out of our salads are striving to change ourselves and in. In a way, covid nineteen has forced all of us to be present, absolutely because listen you running to your job or you go into restaurants you go into baseball game or some entertainment everybody had many different comfort zones and security blankets them, and that's all upended than what you do now. You're not in control of your schedule. Control of your travel plans so many of us are really rising till occasion you find people doing beautiful beautiful acts of volunteerism and right mobility, but others are. Are really suffering because if you're challenge before this can only amplify challenges. She felt a long before. You felt depressed. If you're addicted, all these things become great challenges today. Because you don't have all the usual escapes right. You can't get away from it. You're in it yet, so tell me a little bit about when I guess to start at the very beginning meaningful when people say meaningful life. What does that mean I think in using very good I think business example you know in business. Business one. Oh One, no company can exist without a mission statement. The mission of that company in has to be unique to be short and has to encompass everything that company will do just use Google as an exempt, not advocating google just sink everybody not right right, so Google's mission statement is to organize all information in the world, and could readily accessible so I always ask people I say so tell me if a business can't function without a mission statement, can you? What's your personal mission? I would say life of meaning means alive three. You have an end nudges the means.

"Way and utilizing Resources that they never thought that they would be doing Vancouver nineteen and it might last for some of us. It might be three weeks or a month or two others. It might last year. Who knows on the state we're in in different What the governors and local local government will allow us to do. Things we've done is kind of interesting. It's not as readily available now. Maybe but On Wednesday nights we have a bible study outside and swallow sit asking. Everybody sits in their car. Yeah we have FM transmitter. I'll I'll wait a little bit of worship and then our past and will go out there and Stayed outside and wave that everybody is kind of interesting? Because I'm used to hearing people who say then when other head will now we've gone to either flashing the headlines or haunting the horror to saying windshield wipers going back and forth? It's it's been quite interesting but I think it's caused us to get out of our complacency news and it's allowed us to start thinking more freeway in in the. I'm excited about that. I know it's it had stress but it does cause us to think in different way it does. I was just having a conversation about an hour ago to ours. Go with With the Children's pastor at a church and asked him how. How's going you know just having a conversation about things in general and I asked him if he's dropped the if they are gonNA drive drive in drive ins are resistant he said talked about he said wing. We have more people coming. He said we we. We have people set out on their porch. Three blocks away listening our. They'll just drive up winning. They are in so his point was at least the next situations. They're each a group of people now. I don't think they're they're looking to try to always do. I don't know they're looking but I do. Hope our our normal that is going forward is different than it was. Hopefully we will learn some things. We can apply in the future. No because it is stressful. But one of the things that I I was saying to our group lifestyle our community we have leading meeting. We had one last week and we'll be talking about us out at waxy. We did a web norm at it too but about how it all you know now. More churches were recording their services. They're having a step up as you said online more line all. I don't think what is going to suddenly walk away from that because now people want to enjoy and look for it other. They'll still come back in I but I think they're gonNA be more more man and more need more expectation for the online parts. I don't think our jobs going to suddenly go back to where always was kind of yes. I fully agree. I think it's going to be a is going to be a gradual change Portland is a fairly large facility. And we're actually looking at going in house multi site which has got an interesting thing because within our church building right now enhances we were limited to a West fifty people. Now you're ended up Tim people But that's loosen nibble we have five different locations in the church where we can either. Livestream the Service in there or Internet access you can watch the service a small groups of people that's cool. Yeah so we've got about forty or fifty people. And they can do their social distancing and all of the different aspects of that so so. I don't know in house multi sites the new thing right. Well mean. I'm just hearing of different ideas like that that. That's that's cool. I think it's stretching us and causes to be creative and hopefully you know it's his church and he's going to. He's going to give creative thoughts on how to reach people. We just want you to come on a day and encourages and give us some some some perspective on it and also the ways that our community can plug into what you're doing. We appreciate what you're doing and We appreciate This new book coming out and the devotional Written on and so people can go to worship consulting dot com and find out about those things and also go to Amazon to find the book. You already written power one degrees absolutely and I just I just want to encourage worshippers. I know that. We are in a men precedent in times. We've heard over and over Dwayne but are calling is worshipped. Leaders is is is not changing in so many the method we do.

It's tough so just continued to work diligently before the war knowing that you're serving him and he's going do some great things in your church. Just be faithful in watching more well. That's a good word man wasn't asking if he'd pray over the the folks that are watching we are passers at Watch. This and worship leaders Where we're team members so over us.

"Assume devotional fifty two weeks of weekly devotional that are specifically designed for Worship Ministry so things like Pride Worshiping Worship Instead of worshiping Christ feeling conflicts legalism. You know becoming God's vessel control free all these different things that that we can deal with his worship worship leaders and so really. It started out of proverbs. Four twenty seven. It says do not swerve to the light right or the left to refer away from evil. So let's help story that you said there's a guide as well as a participant guide. What's the primary difference in those two good question Leaders Guide has all the information. It has a scripture passage or verse that ties with a theme. And it's got all verbiage for a leader worship leader to lead their team through and has got one or two points of the end of every week for them to ponder think about pray about and maybe interact with their worship ministry worship Jeans Oh forth -ticipant guide has some of that content. Obviously doesn't have all verbiage for the leader but he gets an opportunity for the participants to make notes to write down answers to the the follow up questions and things of that nature so were in hand. You could use the leader's guide but I think it's most affected to have participants guys reach in a big fan of that as well. I'll just try to understand on. I'm sure someone will be thinking that question. A you are working on a new book. I think I read that. You know I. I am Wow about two years ago Dwayne God. My Heart desired. Help churches with this pastor senior pastor worship leader relationship What what is the worship leader? Go through do we do more than just right Al Orders of worship and select songs? Is there war too involved in and so I am the process right now? We're writing this book. The premise going to really connect with four roofs. The other worship leaders senior pastors worship team members and in church members large and so. It's really encourage worship leaders and help foster stronger relationships within within the church regarding worship leader and so I've got probably twenty five hundred three thousand stories or sponsors or answers to fifty different questions. Yeah in the book we're GONNA have over a thousand different worship leaders that have contributed to it in fact others converted for the time being here But what does She Japan? Good job stories. Thank you stories and you know and and they bury you know. We've got thirty five different states forty different countries six different continents within this pack in this book people from Happy Year experienced a forty years experience. And so we're asking. All sorts of things are funny summer. Going to be a stretch for for sound. But you know what your favorite worship scripture has a worship leader. What's the most bizarre technical issue What's a funny story or strange comment? Somebody's given you before leading worship the worst blunder vests worship to. You're aware of all these different things packed into this. One Book Hoping to develop and foster those relationships with their their worshippers a sound like the put a lot of time and energy into that. Is that going to be something? That'll be coming out soon or two thousand twenty one. What he what are you? I'm thinking is going to be the end of this year or beginning of next year. We're in the process of creating the title creating the structure chapters and all of those different things as you. Well know there's a lot of time. Never go into but he together so yeah I mean it's an exciting project. I think it's going to really gonNA help. Hopefully a lot of people in his blessing to them so the entry level to finding to getting help from you and your organization and Your Business Ministry.

"Everything else is unplugged are gathering but We've always had a heart that wherever God just planned to plant. We wanted that to be self sustaining and if ever we like in Scottsdale we said okay. It's time released that. If that was a god moment then that campus would stay in because the pastors have such strong their shepherds of that flock and so now that we do live stream twice a month while we're in this covert right now. We're kind of thankful because it's live streaming every week into people's homes yet. Were still doing things like This Sunday my wife will use the campus pastors wives. And they're doing a mother special mother's Day For the Mother's Day event and then the following week I'll have those campus pastors and will we will tag team a message together for all of our kids really. I'd love to see that. Wow that's our old and but we we. It's been our prayer that that no matter what the future looks like in Church that those campuses those churches are strong within the community doing outreach. They have their worship teams. They have their own astral staff and that we just get to link arms together and it's been a great great opportunity in journey together. Clearly what I sense from listening to you and of course I've known you so long already knew already know this to be true but It's not about building. A kingdom here locally. It's about building speaking of know the Kingdom of God and if that means releasing a church as you talk about in world cousins really about building the Kingdom and I think that heartbeat is what God has honored and containers honor with you. Would you know. That's what I I'm thankful for. It is about the kingdom. It's not about our own ministry Milton Our Name. Our social media presence. It's not about our. It's not about like it. It's about his kingdom and are we willing to decrease so that he can increase is. It's you know well anyway. Don't get me started there. Some things involved in that that I will well. That's that's that's a hard issue for all of us as leaders and so so but that part of us always attracted and drawn. May I think little mini other people to you? Rusty is that kind of heart of a servant To deflect and and and and point the praise back to God and make it about him his kingdom. Tell us some ten for you. See this Kobe thing. Where's God and all of this? I mean some of us are watching. You know and there's passers that are really struggling. And there's there's worship leaders that are having record services never had to do before and they're they're doing things that never had to do before and a lot people just want to sit to get back to normal. I just WanNa hear your heartbeat about where. Where's GODMANIS TAP? Will you would again. I I don't claim to have my my finger on the pulse of everything. God is doing all I know is. These are very prophetic days. We live got I do believe. These are the in terms but You know too. Many to name the antichrist's the color the color of his shoes. And you know what he likes breakfast. I don't know but something. The Lord dropped in my spirit. Dwayne at really. It was at the beginning of this. I was doing a conference Over in Florence Alabama and I was up very early and I knew what I was going to share that morning. GotTa take me to her back and I've really spent a lot of time in that little book three chapters of a back. It's incredible go look. It needs where we hear. The glory of the Lord is GonNa fill the earth like the waters covered the sea radical. You know when you get to chapter three so I was up very early in the Lord. Is there something you know? It's also where right division down so that others can read and run with it and we've utilized that to to really Define the Vision God's placed in our life and. There's nothing wrong with that that you know God's given a vision and actually proverbs twenty nine eighteen where there is no vision of people perish with the word vision. There means a revelation a godsend where there is no revelation of God where the Voice of the Lord is not heard while the people are uncovered. They run wild. There are no standards to follow. They do their own thing. So God is about igniting his vision in us so I was up very early and I was reading through the little book of a backer. Three chapters. I encourage people to do that today. And you know I. It begins as a hobby having questions to God he basically starts out in verse one in Chapter One. You know. It's believed he was a levite. He was a worshipper. It was a priest in the house or D- While and that's why the one of the most beautiful songs all the Bible is is chapter three to saw a of worship Song of praise and in so in chapter one. He's he's basically saying God do you. Not here's or you're not hearing prayer. God you gotTa Show Up. And then the Lord begins to reveal to him. He's raising up then. This is three years approximately before the Babylonian Captivity God has already been declared declaring to the prophets. I'm going to rate of raised up the Babylonians to bring Judah back to me but yet it's going to look like bondage it's GonNa be captivity The temple is going to be destroyed. Their things as they know it would be no more yet. Ultimately we know it would be a cry back for seventy years of captivity and then they'd be restored and he's wandering he's questioning got. He has questions to go. I believe there's been so many questions. What are you doing? What are you doing? Yep Or win win. Are we gonna see this awakening got this? You know what's happening so then you get to chapter two. And that's when God begins to you you hear this declaration of her back out will get up on the watchtower and I need to see what he is saying. He had to get above the tree line. He had to get above seeing everything that was about to happen and what was happening within Judah and he gets above he says I will go up on my watch tower to see what he is saying. Then the Bible begins to declare God's says Right Division now. What was the vision? Started asking that early that morning. Got What did you wanted to see? What do you want us to see? This is before we shut down. This is actually the Saturday. Excuse me the fraught a Saturday morning early Saturday morning before the first shutdown of our services. We actually the call that Saturday night. Because of everything was happening we would go online only so up early and I began reading that passage again. And then you get to the end of chapter two and it says the Lord is in his Holy Temple let all the Earth keep silent and then chapter three he begins. And here's what the vision was that. Lord said write it down so that others can read it and run with it. Here's what he said he saw. He gets on the high tower. I gotta see what he's saying he said I see God movie and a ahead of him are pestilence behind him is a plane but he is in the middle. God is moving. God is up to something. He had to get above the fray above the pestilence above the plague above all of his questions and he said when I got there I see God living and you asked me what I see this. I see God moving man. What a secret. There may be a white behind. There may be pestilence in front of him. All of this happening around what's going on. And that's when he wrote the song the glory of the Lord was able to hear that cover. God is moving. Thank you for sharing it in a lot. If we'll get on the watch tower of worship in prayer if it will get on the place get above the fray. Get a thirty thousand foot view. God is in the midst of this. God is reliable laking but until the church what makes up the world's not going to see him at two. We see wasting Amen Amen. I hope I didn't take too long. Are you kidding me? Just let us so. Can we don't need to blow past that I need to hear that I I need fact. I'm going to go back and I'm GonNa Meditate on that. Lord you hear me. I'm I'm saying we'll go back and meditate on that make and that's what I would say to all of us listening and be included in. Listen to what the back he got he got alone right in any any any any came above the fray as you said in any any focused on the one that really mattered. The one who's really in charge of all this and then gave him. He gave the time and it just blow in blow out he said Lord will what do you want me to see what he wants to hear man. I I needed that thank you. We don't think even people when you look at Daniel. Daniel wrote in the prophetic that he saw he wrote to the nations of what was coming in his part. Isaiah Jeremiah Ezekiel. It know All the prophetic riders of the Old Testament writing concerning the nations of coming and the nation of Israel. The nation's when Jesus spoke he gave more time speaking to the last days the subject really to any other one subject you know there was a every gospel. But he's writing concerning the kingdom everything about the king of the last days of the King of the the coming of the kingdom. He is the kingdom. He's the King of the Kingdom. Then but the book of revelation which. I'm not I never considered. I'm not a Escott a logical Jer David Jeremiah. Man I listen in you raise. That's the book of revelation was written to the Church actually churches that represented the church as a whole. And we can. If we're not careful we can freak out over all what type shadows what is all this. We get lost in the tree line but it all begins to say Jesus said this is my revelation of me. And if you keep your eyes on me no matter what.

"dwayne" Discussed on The Heart of Worship Podcast with Dwayne Moore

"That's actually ends up being a positive thing for us. What do you think will pruning is good for the body? And there's going to be some pruning the that comes here. There'll be some Things that you were doing at church no longer. Do you gotta figure were a bit. You know they were good but maybe not their best. And so they'll be pruned away It'll be some other things that come to be new growth. That will come to know is going to come back in the days ahead. So I'm trusting God pruning while painful and sometimes ugly will be fruitful. Secondly I I tell you I believe heaven. We've been praying for it. We've been praying for spiritual holy ghost revival in the church and more people preying on preaching this Sunday. I was in a series Leading up the eastern. It really was out of the psalms that just fit the five prayers ourselves that are called prayers and soft and I did those in preached Easter that. Where do you go this son? What after the what's post Easter Corona virus while I'm preaching all the fullness of Holy Ghost Sunday that's what I'm preaching and getting in just a spiritual awakening out Romans eight and I'm believing God for a just a move. I'm apart of Jesus Movement from sixty eight saved me TUTA and I've prayed now for almost forty five fifty years that got to do it again and again and I'm telling you I I can see glimpses that got maybe about to do it again. the young generation. Coming crying out. doing things in a new way. And I'm I can't tell you help just from my vantage for my senior adults have been so flexible so pastor whatever we need to do less just do they keep writing checks and helping people doing whatever they need to do. Yep I'm praying that we spiritual awakening comb To the debate. I know that sovereign God does that. But he also does individually in a way that you know dwayne and yet. Jesus as we. Won't you know if if we get hungry? He'll fill US up so I'm praying that God prunes us and the pain lead just to real spiritual holy ghost revival in the local Scher. Well I'M GONNA ask you in a few moments to pray that very pray over US I think we. I think we need to hear you. Pray that for us because we encourage them and you know I. I haven't talked to several pay a lot of pastors but the ones I've talked to in some things I've read a sounds like password leaders and other staff people over maybe especially pastures a really some are going to very very difficult if not Depressing time but you know we. We hear you and go. Wow now see that encourages. You haven't lost that vision that fire in fact you see what God can do through it and and so I'm GonNa ask you if you moms to pray over us. You know maybe struggling with that. I don't know if this statistic tried so please don't quote me I don't believe about half of what your face but what I see but but I I guess I'm hopeful that this is true that they're upwards of seventy thousand was a number thrown out there that that made a decision of some sort for Christ over the Easter Holidays Online. And you know what? God's big he I could see that happening and yes sir. Oh no doubt in many you know. There are a lot of people that I guess. They don't feel comfortable coming in our churches. That's probably our fault more. It is there's But they tune in on land they'd look and I still believe that You know we need to meet together. Abra stands for. Do you know Princess Pacific. Yeah a Church of the Living God together but this is a new way of reaching out to another generation that live will these instruments like this and we've got to have a way of connecting with but yeah. I was highly encouraged what I saw many of my friends. We had a lot of people. Save Sunday you know. Hey if you pray sprayer grateful to God for it so Well let me drill into that for the small. Don't I want to keep you much longer? But but but you mentioned just something right then that tweet my interest and maybe someone else's listening had an invitation. I mean in in this setting online. You clearly did it. Could you unpack that just a little bit more for us? Well we do it. A couple of ways we we keep routine I'll bet Studying in Chatting while I'm reaching And people are talking online and you know. They're having a conversation but Sunday three times. I gave free appeals. During my Miss I learned this from Greg Greg. Laurie Island West Coast when I watched him the week. Before when president trump had said he was going to watch great opportunity in and watch Greg and after he preached his first point of the sermon. He said I WANNA stop right here and give you an opportunity to receive crises that I know some of you just tuned into his for awhile. Then you're quickly going to miss this and I thought man there's wisdom right there so I did. I have free port Sunday after each point. I said You know if you'd like to trust Chrysler help you to do that. The first time I prayed then I drew them in the third time we pray and then I put a number We have a number that you take St- And and then you text the word to us. We use the word savior. Y'All think you have to somehow get these purchaser of my media. Group does all that But we got a number and a word that we and if you text that to us if our something back to you and it connects us in in our team follows up. So that's the way we give the invitation and then I tell them you can write me. Email me a you can call our office During the week and someone glad to get back to you. We've not done the phone number because we just didn't have enough people we were fearful of five or six people called in and he couldn't answer the phone it wouldn't be the so called during the week or let us know rat a letter. I received things in the mail from people so Just make the appeal you know. I'm not Scott Nelson but but I do the best way I I'd say that yeah. I mean if you had that decisions on Sunday won't Easter that's Awesome. And he did it electrically in so wow so the texting. Yeah think anyone could probably go investigate that for themselves. Y'All we we use a texting service as well but yeah those technologies out there and it's probably not harder harder to get. I want to ask you. Is there any resources of yours that I I know you've written some books on? How can we find some things of yours ted? We can want people to and we'll put it on a website with your permission. Sure well everything we do is an olive Dot Org okay. Two words together. I'll even back your solid balanced dot. Org and you grow faster matter of fact you asked me about that. I had I've got a book that I did a few years ago. Called the eight callings of God. It is probably the best thing I've ever done out of book of First Peter and I've been going back to of course all the messages were there that preach a few other books that are written. But that's probably the one gets more callings of Rawlings of gun. Okay well you got my attention. I'm curious on what those on. I'll get me a copy on the Olive Baptist Dot Org. Okay we'll put that on a website linked to that And probably also put the transcripted vis Just so people. Some people read watch or listen What just encouraging word that you can leave us with. And then a prayer today to to our pastor friends and anyone out there listening well first Peter Chapter one burst. Fat tells us that we are kept about the power of God through faith We're kept by God protect. Is that Greek word? There were kept protected by the power of God through face. So when you believe in the protecting power of God Your kept in in the hands of the Lord and so through this storm Through and other storms. That are GONNA come out. We just have to trust it. That Were kept by the power of God through faith and he can handle this better nine. Haley I again take and He he keeps us in the palm of his hand. Ever preacher every week ever minister music every staffer. All we're there. If we'll by faith respond and surrender to it. We'll be kicked by the power. Got POWERFUL BUT YEAH. We need to be reminded of that. Wow thank you. It's his church and he or so. He'll yup well. That's great rather will once you you know? We could talk a long time. But I know you're a pastor so you got a lot going on loans dwayne thanks. Let me spend a few moments with you and again. Thank you for the trip. Dc OPIUM FOR. John was really life changing for him and for our church it stretched us because of the time when he was there and getting back into quarantine. Al- mess that we had to go through but He's always been a great man but he's a greater man by having been on that trip in meeting. Some of the people he met in Ethiopia was really God shape it for my good friend. John Tanner while. I'm glad you said that. Because we we were. I was trying to get them back on a plane. But I'm so glad you know I was concerned about his family being worried about him but he even felt a calling to be there man what sap was to us. So thank you We did it for those. We did an intensive school for about one hundred worship leaders and pastors on several pastors. There I think we had sixteen or seventeen pastor and they came from all corners of Ethiopia which is a large country also came from other countries and But John was a part of that and so grateful. So yeah man we'll We'll we'll probably try to bar him again obey me. I'll tell you this. In an upright John was a fifteen year old trumpet player in our orchestra when I came to olive thirty years ago And he was younger. Net goes east turned forty But he played a trumpet and in God call him to preach at are called ministry. And just this last year I looked at one Sunday and here came just fifteen year. Old Son down the addle. God called him to preach on and yeah so. The pastor's part almost came out of his chest but when. I saw the children of my children and Jack Preach for me here a few weeks ago Wednesday night had one person say when he pre man how thrilled I want to see John. Through our ministry come to answer the call and in for his son become an answer. The call of music's Great. That's Awesome I. I think Johnny probably watching US but John. F You are. Would you know that I did see your picture? You posted on Easter of you out in the backyard. I guess with your family that he jacked preach and then I said Ted taken yes. He'd taken off in Dallas.

And his any. I'm I'm hearing you fine. And you're without an echo all right Help just in one more second crystal all right just before we start are you well. Is dwayne wells. I'm well yes. Thank you dwayne Zvili. Well HE'S A. He's a year into recovery from hip surgery and it makes a huge difference so things are good. Thank you and and you and your children. Yeah every everything's good I just Have been doing way too much. Travelling at this new book come out the new. Yeah Einsteins God it's It's a it's A. It's it's drawn from my interviews with scientists and it's a lot of fun to be out there talking about but I'm I'm happy to be back in. My kids are happy to have me back. I bet well congratulations on the US. Send you a copy I should. I actually think I had put that down on a list somewhere. It's important for God so Chris. I'm still feeling kind of loud or it went up again. My volume went up again Okay well now. We're hearing an echo on the other end. What's that okay? I think I'm fine now. Did you hear that now? There's an Echo Ellen. I wonder if I wonder if her headphones are up. A little bit high. If we could have allenton her headphones down a little bit okay. Is there someone turn yes? Can someone turned my headphones down. We're not getting any response to okay. How is this Test is tax defense. I think it does yes. The echoes gone. Okay okay Christie and I have also just to let the engineer now. I've also lowered the microphone. Just a bit because it was above the level of my mouth and I was sort of reaching up toward. How does that work? That's fine? Thank you okay all right so Chris I think I could have even a little. Bit less volume. And then maybe why don't I let me ask you something mundane like What you had for breakfast. I had cereal and food doesn't give you much experience. What have you need a little more? Tell me about lunch that tell you what's in bloom and a guy. Yes Virginia Sweet. Spire and the irises Just peaking and going down. The ECHINACEA is coming up. It's actually a pretty time in North Carolina. I imagine it's tulip time in it is to the people don't think of Minnesota as as lush but it really is. Our neighborhood is just incredible. It was it was. It's it's a very special neighborhood and it was. It was kind of constructed to be harmonious with the natural world and creatures and we even have the occasional wild Turkey and Fox squirrels and birds and So I was travelling in April and I missed that period where the snow is gone. But there's nothing growing and I came back and it was all their everything in bloom feeling. I it's beautiful. It is beautiful. Yeah doing good about levels. I think we're great okay. So I- slightly daunted interviewing my teacher like this and I'm going to have a different role with you I think we can get okay and You know as I was thinking about the questions I might want to ask you some of which I always ask people. I realized that even though you and I have had conversations around these things. I've never quite skewed these questions. I don't know all the answers so so so one place. I always start with people. Whatever we're talking about is Was there a religious background to your childhood and actually. I'm not sure that I know the answer to that question. Yes I grew up. I'm a cradle Episcopalian. Okay I've there's never been a time in my life when I haven't gone to church but I would say that church means quite different thing to me over. Religion means quite a different thing to me. Then I think it did to my parents. Anyone almost anyone else in my family I did not grow up in a family that would have defined itself as particularly religious although we would church always when and how did you start heading towards a career in Biblical scholarship and theology. How did that happen consciously? I was an exceedingly late bloomer. I was in my third of four years of seminary before I decided that I was going to teach But if you look at my resume it looks as though when I was eighteen and I went to the Hebrew University in Jerusalem for Year. I decided I was going to be a biblical scholar So unconsciously what they say in Hebrew Elohim Finger of God. I think I sort of being pointed if not pushed in that direction at a much younger age

"They don't know the word of God he said. Please come and help us help them. Know the word of God and isn't that a powerful statement. Yeah so yeah. He said he said I see next. Level worship as a tool that could naked train our lease on true biblical worship and a and and help our churches. And and I and I'm floored by this. I mean do make it already told me too. Bas- basically the same thing. He said Wayne. I'm hearing from around at the Savannah. Life-changing he said we must go to the north. We must go to the south. We must earth and so we got US faithful. This is all a God. Thing is his ministry. Eh Eh boy man and and so just churches church our Church so our job I think is is to listen and obey not for like we gotta take all the world on we just gotTa be obedient to what he says we need to do. And so I you know our thank you guys for coming being a part of this and investing in those folks and investing in our lives. I WanNa thank you trusting us because it was a big step of trust bigger than we expected a little so I mean honestly mailed me a little faith year. But I'm sitting in Zambia. Hearing the news trying to gather all the facts we can do. You guys are literally in the air flying over John and our at breakfast going when they get to Frankford. They're all GonNa turn around hall leave. GonNa Anybody met at one. I tried but you know the airlines were not being cooperative. You know to be honest. I'm okay with that because so much but I would have totally understood if he did. I tell you that you know looking back on the whole thing God was just all over it and I'm so grateful that we were able to get there and be a part of it. I'd say the thing I was GonNa say Dwayne that this is to Y'all's credit at next level worship but a thing that you do that I think is so crucial in this foundation of Biblical worship being built any spices and I saw it with our Zambian team leaders that that you brought up to be a part of the leadership team. You don't just you don't just go in and do a conference but you you come after that and do an intensive school and really focus for a week on training them and then after that you take some of those and you sponsor them and spent six months with someone one on one pouring into them and then you take some of those and you put them in a leadership position and you let them pass on what they've learned and it's such a biblical model of discipleship and I think that's why what next level worship in Africa is doing is making a difference and Because you're following this incredible model that Jesus gave us and And so I just say way to go and and keep that up. It was great to be with some of those Zambian leaders that that were there and they're totally bought in one hundred percent and Guide using them not just in their own country nail but in other countries across Africa. Yeah it's May and I think the eagerness for each of them to grow and to learn and to serve You know like you said I was. I was kind of caught up in the flights and stuff. But you know the one thing that all three pastors said is in they haven't desire an l. they want to grow. They want to learn. They want to know more And that's evident in like like John. Saying in the Zambia Team Spring. Now they want nominally to continue to grow themselves but they wanNA poor people and you know. I had countless number of people. Come up to me at the end of the Week. And just you know thanking me so much for what they were able to learn and and saying how important it is that they continue to learn continue to grow and continue to develop their own skill sets and and you know focus their hearts and praise. God and I think honestly you know like like Dole sign. I think you're going to have in the next few years. You'RE GONNA have a lot of those Meteo Paeans who turned into Ligi members in inner serving in her. You know pouring into the next you know generation or next you know whoever whoever follows after them nave and go and see them. Just you know. Keep pouring into each other now. Yeah Amen. Well one of the things that we tell them from the very beginning in one of the things that are administered tries to be built on in that Second Timothy. Two two then Policy Timothy Paul into others that appointed others reliable people that have been poor and others. So we're always praying the Lord brings us reliable people and those people they know from the from the very beginning of the week in intensive school. You're responsible now to go in. Share this teach this to your church. So that's what we see happening. They go out there. I mean I was with pastor in Zambia probably last year I came to a conference at Church in before we went to the conference. He said I want to speak to him so we sat down in his office and he said I want to thank you. I said okay. He said I want to thank you for mentioning in our team. He said they came to your school six months ago. They have never been the same. You said I can see the difference. Wow so that's that's the impact. I believe that the Lord is doing. Yeah it's all good it's all it's all God man well. Hey we're gonNA take a break through moment we're gonNA come back in one. We got about five ten minutes left in this. You guys have been so gracious to give some of your time today but but we want to come back and ask you. Just leave us with the challenge of you. Know How can we grow deep in this? Make the most of these moments we have in this warranty. Maybe we'll something new discovering goddess teaching. You if you would just come back and take a moment to do that I feel like there's something that we all need to hear. Mass has been so rich believer moves and other really enjoyed it. So we'll be back in just a moment guys here Chris and John. About this Something they're doing to help all grow deeper known worship and our family works at during their stuff. Orrin thing..

"Retrieved is a Marxist country right meaning there can be no Christianity there. Yeah and so so. It's a completely closed Christianity. It's legal. That's the first time that we've had that didn't brought up something interesting about making so I'll I'll try to briefly. Share this just kind of keep it short but but it is a story worth telling we were in Tshoma Zambia. Our team just kind of blew. We kind of blew through to be honest. We were on our way to the next conference. We were going from place to place. Within the country of Zambia. Doing Conferences of meeting people training about worship Lee said well we got the Sunday night for. Let's come through this little town of Chohan. Let's do worship night there. So we denied worship Coupla Jordan and Stephen on our team did some music and and and Donald Are Africa directors there but then I got up and spoke then that was it but we were done and then I walk outside and look under the tree outside the Church and I see this man motioning to walk over. Come come come over here and I walked over. Did Not know him at all. Never seen him in my life nor had he ever seen me but his name is Daniel and he said I am from Ethiopia. You must come to our country. I mean that's the first thing he said to me. Okay again talking. I was like wow okay. Who's this guy you know? And he was so passionate. You must come. He said we have any named how many millions of Christians there are any so we have millions of Christians and they need to hear this message about worship and well who since and it was from that first connection that God melded our hearts together and it was through to making that we are now working in Ethiopia. And that's the one that John referred to a moment ago to make a Daniel that was up there translating for us but what visioned got put on this burden got when this guy's heart and how God news this connection to put us in Ethiopia so it's a good story. Yeah incredible story. Yeah so I want to hear you guys perspective on I mean what would you expect him when he went over there and what was your takeaway is if you can sum that up. I know there's probably a lot you share. Well I You know shared with you. Dwayne visited a while back. I'd been to a few times before. And I actually have. Two adopted children from Ethiopia. So I've been over with our adoption in another time doing some ministry over there and so I really love that country have a heart for that country. I tell people jokingly it's where my people are from there have a heart for that that country on a grown to love their culture. And all these things so you. I mentioned this intense the school to me and I was really interested in doing it. because I never had never done any worship ministry things over there I'd never even been to UPN church before inexperienced without be like so you know I was. I was very interested in doing the teaching and the ministry aspect and then also just experiencing The way that they worship I was really curious. Interested about that and So so I'd do it in. I don't know my expectations were I was just kind of curious. It I was ready to teach. I was teaching last week. Biblical foundations for worship and leadership and Those are the two topics and so I was. Even you know not sure how everything I was gonNA say would would translate for them. You know not knowing because they are. You know the the worship leaders for all volunteer so when I talk about leading leading a team I didn't know what that really meant for them. How they prepare and those kinds of things but when I got there I found they were just so hungry to learn and to grow So a couple things out as we went to church on Sunday which grateful ORCA had a little bit of a point of reference before we got into our teaching But the worst was very expressive. Which I think probably tastes. Throughout most of Africa the cultures just they're very expressive anyway in their culture and Outward and so the worship was very expressive course. I didn't understand much of what was going on the air because the language barrier but But I discovered that what we really needed to do was really speak to the heart. And that's what next level worships all about anyway Of what they were found that they were like sponges. I mean they wanted to soak up every bit of thing that we could share with him teach and specifically Noah's always teaching the biblical foundations and just talking about allergy of worship. They they wore so hungry to hear that message and to To really understand what the Bible says about what true worker is and how to apply that in into that. I was also encouraged by that often. See really encouraged in sort of struck and been kind of mulling this over since we got back the Medicare shared with us About how influential Ethiopia is which I kind of knew and Africa. You know it's the head of the African Union really large country. It's right smack. In the middle of Porn of Africa DISA- very has a huge growing Muslim population. The opium has a growing Muslim population. Although it's not as heavy as in a lot of the countries that border them but he he talked a lot about the influence. Thank you have Throughout the Horn of Africa. They are In so I was really struck by the In felt like it was a that was a god ordained thing and could be a very strategic place to continue. That work in the church is just taking the word of God and And really learning. What true worship intrude? Discipleship is all about and so I was up. I've really kind of been thinking about that a lot and how God went before that used to make eight to bring the whole team they Erin So those are the things that have kind of been on my mind since I've been back so good so rich. Show Chris what about you? John Well this is my first time ever going to Africa As long as I was trading reading as I was preparing my material. to teach I wasn't really sure what to expect. You know what their style of worship was you know. I knew energetic. I knew they were. You know very enthusiastic in their worship. I hadn't really experienced anything To to know how to relate how you know what I was going to be teaching them and then you know similar to John. Why we went to a church Sunday morning and had the opportunity. You experienced that which I think is very beneficial and they were all very enthusiastic and there are a lot of jumping around singing praise and You know it was a smaller church so they had You know Just one guy kind of banging on a drum and one one lead were on a but you know to see where their hearts were and a see that all them were so engaged and so enthusiastic in so you know passionate about grading God You know that that kind of resonated throughout the rest of the week you know we had nine nations representative different times from different people and you know. We Sang in pre four different languages. We had multiple different styles of worship. You know and I think one of the things that we hear America struggle with is to land sign our preferences and to focus on the content of the worship not necessarily the style of worship and so I think you know being there around a hundred different people who didn't matter who was on stage leading the worship. What style of music matter language it was in. They were all engaged with their hearts and they all wanted to participate in praise. God and absolutely you know we had later in the week. We had a service where you know. There were very enthusiastic. Most of the week and jumping up and down and dancing what? We had a service later in the week where they were on their knees. All one hundred people were on their knee room ratifiable. You know it was a very intimate very quiet. Very Reverend moment and every single one of them was just you know engaged with their heart focused on Christ. You know let that went on for a while that went on for Ya. Absolutely how? And then we came out from that and we didn't have enthusiastic phrase at the end but you know it it for me again. It just the idea that they're not what style matter. What language we're worshiping the same God and you know if you're willing to set aside your preferences willing to lay aside you know and understand. It's not about you you know this is about God. We are here to worship him and him alone. You know that was for me. Probably the most moving part of that trip to steal experience all those different cultures and you know everybody just focusing on on the same purpose. Aim goal of just giving praise to God innocent incredible experience guys. I mean if you're listening and you're you're saying about you know mission ships in the future. I would encourage you consider. Consider being a part of this some time you know if that's something lower put on your heart and we can work together. We want we want to know the team members. We Wanna get to know each other and likely we've learned to trust and know John and Chris but I tell you it's a life changing experience. Not only for them but I think maybe more so far rush I get impacted and every time. Yeah so John. You Miss you miss this man you remember the. I think I pointed it out to you across the lake from where we were meeting each each day. I pointed out to you. I don't know but there was a restaurant. There's a restaurant or the side of the low. Yeah Yeah and so you you know we there. It was after you had because you had to leave early. You missed miss that but we we got to sit there on the on the deck by the lake and enjoy a good meal together and we invited a three pastors to come with US leaders among the leaders kind of people and just wanted to get their feedback can hear their horror about things and how conversation about. Maybe what could be next? You know I'm always looking to say well. Lord we try not to be of one off ministry which ought to be minister the continues to pour into two people into areas as long as the Lord gives us freedom to do that and so and so I wanted to find out. Is there a need for more? Oh my goodness y'all Christmas sitting there on Christmas concerned about his flights on how much this moment picked up on. He was trying to work through his flight schedule. But I don't know if you heard this crisp but Pastor Elias. I'll never forget what he said. I mean it it it resonates a mind even now. He said Dwayne many about worship leaders. Don't even know one Bible.

Gift of Recovery: 52 Mindful Ways To Live Joyfully Beyond Addiction with Rebecca Williams

"All right. Let's talk about our guest today. Her name is Rebecca Williams and she is going to talk about mindfulness. She's an award winning author psychologist and leader in the field of wellness and recovery from Mental Health and addiction. She's been doing this for over twenty years and focused on helping people build resilience and embracing wellbeing now. I love mindfulness. It's a center part of my life and been crucial to my healing so I was so happy to have rebecca come on and talk about it and share her wisdom so I think it's great episode. I hope you guys enjoy it and let's go ahead and start it all right. Hello everyone welcome to the addicted. Mind and my guest today is Rebecca Williams Rebecca. You WanNA introduce yourself yes. Thank you so much for having me Dwayne. My name is Rebecca Williams. I may licensed psychologist. I lived and worked in San Diego. California Beautiful San Diego for twenty five years and just recently came out to Savannah Georgia to be around wildlife and beauty and nature. It's gorgeous out here. My path to about going into addiction really was about my family struggles with addiction especially my mother who's now gone but she struggled with addiction. And so I come from this from a family history angle and wanted to learn more and more about. It studied it in college. Master's degree also in counseling psychology. As well as a PhD at University of California Santa Barbara. So this is very personal to you. Yes it's personal and professional so it's a nice combination. Yeah I think that's somehow how it kind of works right because this is personal to me as well but also professional exactly. Yeah for sure all right. So let's talk about just go will just jump right in and talk about one of the things that you do. And one of. Your specialties is. Mindfulness this is a topic that I love. Mindfulness has been fundamental in my healing. So I'd love to hear everything you have to say about it and how you discovered it and how you found it how it's helped you and how you used to help others right great question. I agree mindfulness as paramount to my healing and my ability to be psychologists essentially came through mindfulness personally through yoga and that was before. Yoga was cool. I which is in the eighties now. It's real cool but back then it was just kind of a one off and not everyone knew about it or did it and I just learned about it and actually started teaching yoga in the eighties and then from there moved into mindfulness and meditation. I started like a lot of people. Didn't know what the Heck I was doing. I bought a a meditation cushion and I thought I had it all taken care of but I didn't. So you know just like a lot of people you go into meditation. Not knowing what's going on if you're doing it right and I came in with a sitting on my yoga meditation cushion with you. Know my coffee. My newspaper my cereal. I was all just anxious and not figuring it out quite yet until I slowly one by one got rid of the coffee and then the cereal and then the newspaper and I finally figured out after years. Just to bring myself to the meditation cushion and not get so cluttered with a bunch of other stuff. So I've been working on that for about twenty years or so so it was something you found to quiet. You're anxious mind. Which is something that I can totally relate to. Yeah I mean especially anxious mind and then going into the profession of mental health where you're dealing with a lot of other people with anxiety and depression and addiction and grief and loss and rage so you it takes a special person to stay in the profession and to really be well in the profession of mental health. And that's been my journey to stay well as I moved through this profession. So you know I was as you were talking and I was thinking about interviewing today. I was thinking about my own journey with mindfulness. And I remember. I was in Crisis in my life and had a ton of anxiety like overwhelming anxiety and I was beginning this profession and someone had given me. I think a book by John Cabot sin called full catastrophe living and I started reading that I started doing mindfulness because I just wanted to exactly. Yeah I mean we all habit and some more than others but there's a way through it and once you get it where you can have the ability to calm your mind down like like we're doing right now so anyone listening to this. Podcast can actually focus on the breathing and releasing tension. It's a practice just like recovery is a practice. Same thing with mindfulness right. So let's talk a little bit about what? Mindfulness is or how you bring it to your work or to someone who's struggling with addiction right and you mentioned John Cabot Zinn. I think his definition of it and he's in Massachusetts I think or maybe he's retired by now but his research and his ability to interact with his patients who had medical conditions really set the stage over the last thirty years but his ability to connect with people by just being in the room with them is pretty special. He thinks of mindfulness as being in the present moment on purpose. And this is the important part without judgment so being in the present moment. That's a challenge doing it on purpose. That takes a little bit extra work and then this special thing which I think we all struggle with is without judging rather than judging. Oh Am I doing it right? Or is this the right way to go actually just slowing down and releasing the judgment letting the thoughts flow through you and out versus getting stuck and having those thoughts hijack your wellbeing and that's challenging not to be judgmental having today is because we're judging everything all the time are categorizing? We're putting into different thoughts about it. Good bad and to be able to just sit there and watch takes some practice exactly. It takes practice just like anything else in life like even if you take a yoga class the first time it's icky and you really don't WanNa go back but once you get into the rhythm of it of not judging or releasing the judgment. I should say your brain starts to recalibrate itself. It's the oddest thing that happens. But actually new pathways open up. That are less sticky and more clear and smooth and calm. So it's you know you're right. It is a life journey to try to manage the judgement.

Schizophrenia in Men

"I'm Rachel Star here with my co host Gape Howard last episode. We discussed how schizophrenia affects women and this episode. We are focusing on the gentleman exciting. We have Jason Jepson. Who's GONNA join us? He is a mental health advocate. Also a veteran. Who HAS SCHIZOPHRENIA? And Dr Finch will return to help us understand the medical side of things that are going on Rachel. I'm looking forward to a great show. I'm excited to gave last month. Rachel we learned how schizophrenia impacts women. You know things. Like motherhood and pregnancy and menopause and aging and. I don't think there's a lot of people were surprised that any illness would impact a female differently than it would a male but we sort of want to open that up because there were some big differences in how schizophrenia presents in males over females and I think that was surprising for us during the research because we just assumed that an illness hits women differently because I think society is conditioned to believe that women go through everything differently. The fact that we hear mentioned over and over is that men tend to get diagnosed far earlier in life than women. Do with schizophrenia. However as we talked about last episode that's not always true especially in families who have a history of mental illness and even amongst like different ethnic groups but due to being diagnosed younger age men often have not attained the same degree of social development as women. Do at the onset of schizophrenia and that can contribute to poor social outcomes during our research. We learned that the reason that menor often diagnosed earlier because men are showing more emotions or boehner abilities and when seen in women as we learned last month. They're just like oh well she's a woman so of course she's being emotional. Where when the exact same symptoms seen in men that like oh? This is a problem but as you pointed out getting diagnosed earlier isn't necessarily the advantage that we think it is in males because stereotypically they're looking at you for all kinds of issues as we're GONNA learn from our guest. One of those issues is violence or rage or anger. My question to you Rachel is. Do you think that men have an easier time with schizophrenia? Or is it just a different time? I would definitely say a different time being diagnosed earlier that in itself and we talked about mini episodes ago where it comes to diagnosing children where that has a huge impact on you. You know if you know earlier that you have a major mental disorder that can change just how other people view you yourself. How your parents view your future? I know that's definitely come up just in my own life. But I can't imagine. Had I gotten the diagnosis in high school. My parents probably immediately would have started wearing like while she can't go to college. Just assuming things so just like being diagnosed sooner. I think is really scary. And then the flip side not being diagnosed until your mid twenties like many women. Are you probably been dealing with this for a while? Had not been able to get help so it's definitely a different situation. I don't think either side is going to be easier anytime. You're dealing with schizophrenia. It's going to be intense across the board. Rachel do a refresh real quick and talk about symptoms that tend to impact men more than women. Men tend to have more serious cognitive deficits more the flat effect we have a monotone voice very dull expression. You don't really react the way that people would normally react in situations blunted emotional responses where it's just kind of. I don't WanNA say chill but you're just kind of you know straight across the board when things happen. Speech reduction and men tend to be less active than women. And of course just because you're male or female doesn't mean that you fit in a nice tidy box right it just just because you're male doesn't mean that you will have all of these and just because you're male doesn't mean that your family will not notice or will notice. We're speaking in generalities when we talk about stereotypically. This is how schizophrenia presents in men. Yes absolutely and Rachel. Of course we love you very much. But you're a woman living with schizophrenia. So you thought it would be appropriate to bring on a male who is living schizophrenia. And that's why we have a great guest who you spent some time with Jason. Jepson as you said. He's a veteran. He's awesome. He's living with schizophrenia. And you did a great interview. You're ready to roll it absolutely here. We go today's guest. Is Jason Jepson? Who also has schizophrenia? Thank you so much for being with us today. Jason Thank you for having me so right away. I what you to tell our listeners about yourself okay. Sure I'm a writer. I started journaling when I was in the seventh grade. I have two books out. I'm also a veteran. I'm a part of the Vet Council at McGuire. Veterans Hospital remained. Sure that veterans don't fall through the cracks and we dragged him to mineral services. It's awesome well. Thank you so much. Thank you very much for serving for US. Thank you so much. So what age were you diagnosed with schizophrenia? I was the diagnosis of schizophrenia. When I was twenty three I was diagnosed in the army. The thing is. I don't know how your schizophrenia is. But my I knew the voices the voices in my head board the other soldiers that fought in California where I was stationed in also friends from Richmond. Virginia because I saw my heaven hear their voices. It took me a little while to Except my illness. Did you have signs that you noticed earlier? Age Not really in high school. I'd mild depression. I saw a counselor for short time but I still was social. Had Friends and I've played Lacrosse in high school. Now do you have visual hallucinations. Also are yours mainly audio then in my twenties it was mainly voices that I couldn't figure out. Where were they will coming from? Stow our episode. Today is focusing on. How men experienced schizophrenia. Different than women? Do you have any thoughts on that? Do you feel. There's much of a difference Well I think everybody's experience for Schizophrenia. Is Different in general. I think we hear voices delusions but the specifics of a different. If that makes any sense okay. It's just important to find the right treatment plant for men and women you know. Find the right medication. Maybe have therapy. How does someone to trust like your parents or your friends and all that takes trial and error for both men and women. I want to ask you this because I think it has like two sides that you see. A lot of men with schizophrenia ended up homeless and I know with you also working with veterans. You hear that a lot too when you have a lot of people coming back with post traumatic stress disorder. What are your thoughts on that? Yes what kills me makes me when attack. This mental health thing for veterans is out veterans actually committed suicide in the parking lot of the. Va Can you believe that? I mean there's gotta be an answer to that. I mean. It took me a while. Ask for help myself. How do we get there? How do we combat that? You know it's just I hope. Veterans Council can reach out to them. we were still a new organization. But that's just need to ask for help and it can be take awhile but be patient. I would say men are typically known for not wanting to ask for help and I can imagine it's been doing you're talking about like soldiers you know the idea of masculinity it being even harder for guys like that exactly what you know one thing. That's helping. There's more athletes coming forward to Lesson to stigma for men. I'm sure you for that. Dwayne Rock Johnson has come out saying he gets depressed. I mean that guy's a famous actor and that's going to do great things for men in my opinion is huge. You think masculinity he's just giant muscle. What has been your biggest struggle as a man with schizophrenia? Well it's the Saudi expectations. The stereotypes gave does this wonderful on the social network but but know why kids job. I used to avoid social situations because the question. What do you do? What do you do for a living? Because I didn't have an answer then. I realized I would make a house advocate and I'm proud to be a mental health advocate when you say you're a minute health advocate that opens the door for education. What is it one in? Four people have some kind of mental illness. You know so if you open up. A mental health advocate well. My my sister has bipolar. My uncle is a schizophrenic. You know it opens it up and talking about it. Like we're doing now is the most important things to bus stigma. What advice do you have for men? That are listening. Right now with schizophrenia. Except your diagnosis is probably one of the most important things I can say when he accepted you. Get on the right medication. Be Patient with medication and It's okay to ask for help you know ask for help. It's it's okay to ask for

Closing Of Coal Power Plants Means Debates On What To Do With The Water They Used

"Coal fired power. Plants are being closed across the country. In the arid West. Those plants use a lot of the region scarce water supplies now with closure dates approaching communities or having sometimes contentious debates about how this newly freed up. Water should be used from K. Unc in Colorado Luke Runyan reports it snowing in downtown Craig Colorado when Jennifer Holloway walks into the local bookstore. She runs the city's Chamber of Commerce and says the start of twenty twenty has been full of mixed emotions. It's been hard to face the fact that okay we are needed in January Craig's dominant employer the company operating the nearby. Coal Plant and mine confirmed the rumors. It will shut down by twenty thirty because we've been providing electricity for millions of other people and that is a source of pride at first people worried about the loss of jobs at the plant. Now they wonder. What's going to happen to the sizable amount of water? It uses its ten times more than all of Craig's nearly nine thousand residents us. There is some discussion on this in the community and people have different views but my personal view is that that water needs to be safeguarded for long term environmental usage because Holloway says a healthy environment means a healthy local economy across the West than thirty five. Coal plants have either closed recently or are slated for closure in the next fifteen years when you look at a typical coal facility. It uses an enormous volume of water. Dwayne highly CEO of tristate generation and transmission which operates Craig's plant coal plant. Closures will free up more than two million acre feet of water in Western states about as much as the Phoenix Metro area uses in a year. And the fact that will be liberated and available for other reuse is going to be significant significant because in this part of the country. It's unheard of for large amounts of water to suddenly become available. Highly says tristate is already receiving calls from buyers interested in Craig's water drawn from the Yampa river part of the drought plagued Colorado River basin. This Chris big opportunity to make the decisions. More wisely Cook Chechen. John researched coal plants in their water rights in a Grad School project for the Nature Conservancy. It's one of a few environmental groups. Interested in buying water from plants slated for closure in Wyoming New Mexico and Arizona and keeping it in rivers. It all comes down to who can negotiate with these plans owners than look who can make it better claim or make a better offer but with no large scale regulated market for water rights in the Colorado River Basin. It's hard to say exactly how much money it's worth. People like. Megan Veenstra would like to see water from the Craig plant stay. Local place painted. She and her husband run good vibes river gear. Rafts lifejackets all kinds of stuff just to get you out on the water. And she says Craig is starting to make a transition that other communities in the West over the last century have gone through from mining to recreation based economies. It's been a boom and bust town for a long time as time to just kind of get away from that and we just a steady growing town plenty of other growing. Western cities have the means to pay top dollar for the Craig Plants Water but moving it from one place to another is in some cases physically or legally impossible and you can count on locals to put up a fight to hold onto it for NPR news.

Recovery Dharma with Josh Rychert

"Already everybody. Welcome to the addicted. Mind my guest. Today is Josh Reichert. And he's GonNa Talk About Recovery Dharma Mindfulness Buddhism and Addiction. Josh you introduce yourself sure. Dwayne so I'm Josh Reicher. I'm in Idaho right now. I've been involved with Boise's recovery Dharma community or Gosh. It's been since two thousand fourteen now recovery Dharma under that name just kind of came into being within the last year our meetings. We called ourselves refuge recovery for a long time which is something very similar to recovery. Dharma but there were some name changes wits and the recovery path. So that's another story anyway. So Recovery Dharma. It's just an addiction recovery. Peer Support Group meetings all over. The Nation uses Buddhism. The four noble truths the eightfold path says a way to structure recovery for individuals. My personal story is in a recovery began back in nineteen ninety five the involved with twelve step groups issues with alcohol use disorder after that initial several years many years recovery from drinking eventually found myself a moving away from twelve steps and developing an interest in meditation and subsequently the use of meditation to help myself with some depression and then eventually kind of rediscovered the need in my life to have a recovery community and I just sort of fell into this Buddhist addiction recovery path under the name of refuge recovery. The person that started refuge recovery in Boise was a a young man who had kind of be framed raided a local Buddhist teacher while he was in jail and this was really early in refuge. Recovery's history back in two thousand fourteen little before a book was published but in any event so that was when Boise's refuge recovery committee meetings got started but Boise I'm guessing the path of Boise's recovery Dharma is similar to what it's been in other communities in the starting out as refuge recovery small groups with some alliance with other groups through an online presence. Really so it sounds like you started going to the twelfth. Step you're getting in recovery and you started looking at mindfulness in Buddhism and somehow it spoke to you what was it about it that for you helped you the most mostly that it was something that recognized by individual will capacity to have a life wear compulsions addictions were not the focus of my life. But still where I recognized that that was sort of a risk for me so it was a chance to identify with a recovery path. That didn't identify with the addiction. So I was one of the challenges with the twelve step program was an identification and even a sense of bonding that comes through emphasizing the actual activity or substance and as I saw this capacity for mindfulness to teach me to be aware of my present moment experience kind of thought. Wow My present moment experience that I want is the experience of you know seeing the world clearly being able to participate in life and just kind of being alive and being happy and at the same time recognizing that I do have certain kinds of risks my wellness so is very much. This idea that here's a spiritual path. It uses mindfulness and meditation. It recognizes addiction is a risk but it addresses the recovery from addiction. As what's happening right now in my life as live rather than a focus on a past behavior or an identification with a set of behaviors for the purpose of detaining recovery so very in the present moment yeah present moment with an awareness that the challenges that take me away from the present moment are somewhat associated with cravings and addictions in in a very general sense you know after the initial concerns with a compulsive or addictive behavior are addressed. Then it's just you know living light and knowing there's a tendency for that kind of behavior and you present moment. Awareness is where that ability to stay at a recovery is exercised definitely agree with that. I love mindfulness. It's a big part of my life and it brings you to that space where you can kind of be in that moment and just accept all sides of it and it's just there without having to necessarily react to it and for a lot of people in recovery. There aren't options that are put in front of them at the very beginning. I work in Behavioral Health Hospital and primarily when patients with various kinds of addictions are given referrals referred directly to twelve step based recovery programs. And I know from experience that many people don't resonate with that so having this additional option is really valuable in addition to have it. Be something where it's an alternative to the need to rely on a higher power and alternative to. Let's see other word that I really like something that recognizes a modern incarnation of our knowledge about recovery. The mindfulness aspect of things has been scientifically validated very thoroughly through studies and both with dealing with cravings being able to be with the discomfort of a craving and sit through that as well as the practice of when those cravings have lessened to be able to really thrive in the moment and no longer half those cravings be the focus and no longer have the fear of past be something that's in the forefront of awareness so he can give people an alternative if they don't necessarily resonate with twelve step. This might be alternative that they could use that would fit for them. Definitely not just an alternative frequently to supplement for people. I think people will look at recovery. Dharma as a way to practice medication and learn about meditation as a supplement to what is part of the eleventh step in the twelve step programs. Were Meditation as emphasized and not really well described how to practice it. So there's people in Recovery Dharma certain use it as a supplement as well so they can complement each other very much. So tell me a little bit of Abou- Recovery Dharma and what does Dharma me for people out there that don't know what that term means. Can you explain that? So at the beginning of the recovery dormant meetings. There's a couple of readings that people go through that. We kind of like entrusted meetings. Were they read the twelve steps the twelve traditions and the preamble. One of them that we read is called the practice and recovery. Dharma is kind of broken down into a couple of general categories. One is the practice of meditation and then attending recovery meetings. And then there's this need to continue to study Buddhism. You know in kind of an almost formal way where. Maybe there's a study of Buddhist teachings some books or an association with teachers outside of recovery. Dharma Dharma often is the word used to describe the teachings of Buddhism. On but more broadly it can be described as a sense of truth or a clear understanding of reality or teachings that are kind of wise and bring people into a sense of health and wellbeing and inability to connect with the world so it has less to do with a dogma of Buddhism although that's frequently how it's used and it has more to do with all right. Is there information in the world? That's going to help me be in recovery and live a decent life information. That's reliable that comes from trusted teachers friends. Maybe even from nature you know. It's just a sense of the truth. That's reliable and yet is part of my own personal experience and not something that say fed to dogmatic way

The Root of the Addictive Process with Alex Katehakis

"All right. Today's guest is Alex. Cata Haughey's somebody who I've wanted to have on the podcast for quite some time and I'm so excited. She decided to come on. She is a clinical sexologist and the clinical director of the Center for healthy sex in Los Angeles California and she's written several awesome books. One of my favorite is sex addiction as affect dysregulation and also erotic intelligence and Mir of intimacy. We have a great conversation about some of the root causes of the addictive process. Really looking at that early developmental trauma and how that affects our ability to regulate our affect. And how we use addictive substances or processes to escape from that feeling. It's great conversation. I really enjoyed having Alex on. I think we could have talked easily for an hour or two or three about these topics. She's so knowledgeable and just really shares a lot of great wisdom and insight about recovery. So with that. Let's go ahead and start this episode. Hello everyone welcome to the addicted. Mind my guest today. Is Alex Kata Hakkas and she is a clinical sexologist and clinical director of the Center for healthy sex in Los Angeles California. And she's GonNa come on and we're GONNA talk about sex addiction. Sex Addiction has affect this regulation. And we'RE GONNA go into a little bit of what that means but Alex introduce yourself. I yeah thank you. Good Morning Dwayne yes as you stated I am clinical sexologist which means I have a doctorate in human sexuality and I've been fascinated with human sexuality for the last twenty five thirty years or longer to save my life and so after practicing as a licensed marriage family therapist for twenty five years. It made sense for me to dive deeper into human sexuality instead of psychology which Swipe chose that particular course of study as you stated I am be clinical director of Center for healthy sex which has been around now for about fifteen years and we treat all manner of sex and love addiction issues of sexual desire dysfunction public pain disorders erectile dysfunction. I mean you name at sexual we treat it. So that's in general. What my the lenses through which I look and just in addition to human sexuality I have been studying with Dr Alan Shore for the past twelve years specifically looking at developmental neuroscience and how the early formation of the infant meaning from the third trimester on Rumi impacts developing brain nervous system and therefore mind. Right definitely and. That's one of the reasons I wanted to have you on is to kind of do a little bit of a deeper dive into some of these issues around addiction specifically sex addiction. And when you say affect dysregulation going into that a little bit and being able to talk about okay when we talk about affect we're really talking about emotions and emotions live deep in the body in fact right now if you're listening to this or you have a policy or having emotions in the body which aren't necessarily registering up high meeting up in your brain until they come forward to what we call feelings and so when a person is regulated meaning. They don't have good heart rate variability. They're not able to rest in digest and play and laugh and be at ease if they are stressed out than their affect is quote this regulated. So when you're regulated you are in a a steady state if you will where you're able to socially engage with people in a way where you don't feel but as soon as threat comes on. The scene with a child has apparent. That's alcoholic or raging or but mother who is cold or shutdown or mean that child's affect is always going to be quote this regulated and here. She is always going to be looking for something to make them feel better. Because the parental connection the parental soothing is not reliable. Or it's just not there so tell me a little bit about how that because that's a lot to digest what you just said. I thought I made it simple. No I mean I get it but like if you're talking to someone who is struggling with addiction. Let's say or Struggling with sex addiction. And you're talking about this affect. What might that look like? In an event that they have in their own life now in the present. Well there may not. There's not even an event in their general waking life you're gonNA feel anxious depressed dead internally dull. There's a general lack of feeling vitality in the body. People say they don't feel joy states or they're super anxious so they have to drink to make the anxiety go away or they use sex to make themselves feel powerful or good about themselves. Anything that we're doing outside of ourselves to make ourselves feel quote right internally speaks to affect regulation so someone who is securely attached. Who's got a good heart rate? Variability in general doesn't have to reach for anything to change their internal state or their mood. Is that clear? Yeah no that makes a Lotta sense and I think what I hear you saying is so someone who if you've had this history of trauma like you said an alcoholic parent that's raging and you're young and you're growing up in that environment. You get your living with this uncomfortable state and you can't get out of that state and so then you'll reach for something that will change it so alcohol sex or for young child that can be something like fantasy. You know what we see. A lot of Labatt annex or some sex addicts too. Is that very early on? They learned that they had to get their needs. Met By themselves and fantasy is a form of mild to moderate dissociation. Where it's you know what your calls an escape when there's no escape where they go into their own little world and they live in their own little world and as adults. It makes it difficult to connect with another person to have intimacy and closeness instead. The person is in fantasy about other people because it's very difficult to be in reality because reality was so painful along time ago and this sets up for very bad relationship sometimes because they're falling in love with an ideal not an actual person right and I think for a lot of people this is can be subtle in some ways so it can be hard to actually see that uncomfortable state. Is it that people are used to it? Like they've lived in this state that is basic discomfort that it's hard to actually see it. And then they don't even know that they're regulating it by using a substance or an addiction or something. Yeah I think people don't now until their lives become unmanageable. They start to have messes in their lives and their primary relationship is with e behavior or the substance and that's typically when addicts get help when they're in pain. They know that their life isn't working anymore and so they're going to stuck. Yeah they're stuck in these tatters because we are nothing but automated and habituated. I mean we have all of these adaptive strategies in the brain and the nervous system. Start working in a particular way to compensate for difficulty that is an adaptation and Rican adapt to just about anything or highly adaptable creatures. So we'll adapt to something that's dysfunctional. Because it's better than the problem we were living in. And then we've got this long standing pattern that can be very challenging to change so for example of somebody stops drinking or using or they stop acting out with their sex addiction. It doesn't mean that they've changed their personality. Which is why the program topics about character issues and you can be a quote dry drunk because you stop the thing. The behavior substance. But you haven't fundamentally changed the way that you relate to other people and that's really the challenge and the beauty. I think the twelve step program is that it really arms and forges new. People that we can change our strategies. And it's hard. It's like if you walked your whole life pigeon toed and your toes were turned in and your hips were adapted to walking that way and somebody came along and said Hey. You don't have to walk that way. You're kind of grinding the bones of your hips in your knees. If you point your host all of a sudden your knees hips are in alignment and you try it. And you're like wow that feels better but the natural tendency of the body is going to be to move towards being pigeon toed unless the person is highly mindful of it and vigilant about it until they can change that adaptive pattern to rocking straight

"dwayne" Discussed on The Heart of Worship Podcast with Dwayne Moore

"All right we are back We are back with Jordan and this is the heart of worship podcast Jordan. We've only got a few minutes But we'd I'd love to hear something that you're learning may what's got what something got. Tcu What we believe is that we should never stop learning. And that's one of our mottoes around here so tell us what some learning and okay. So he's got to learn a big fun challenging thing right now Trying to help help others learn and that it's teaching me a lot about how to kind of get people all on the same. MM track So we we just recently got some sound system upgrades church and With that we're all able to use any ear monitors now so I'm sure many people listening have done this. You've probably done for years. I have done that for a long time and and started here two years ago and that was something that I wanted to to get going and get upgraded and so we have that so with that. We've we've kind of introduced this. This crazy idea of click tracks track oil. Yes have introduce them to. There's a difference in just doing them. Introducing the whole experience in and of itself. And that's where I'm at and that's what I'm learning so I'm trying to learn Right now how to get you know twenty five people On that and introduce that to them and I found out that People people have used them in rehearsal. But I was I me and my wife are the only people that are actually used a click track of a lab setting okay and so Yeah Yeah and and and and let me say this. The musicians I'm playing with. They're great. They're really good. Yeah good many of them have played for years and years and years but just the idea of click tracks they they. It didn't cross paths with that and so This is for. This is a first for a lot of people. And so I'm learning how to navigate navigate the the boundaries so I don't want to push too hard And make people feel like they can't do it because because it didn't go so well or if they fail How do I help them how to help them? Pick up and and and grow and so right now. I'm learning how to really do that. How to be patient how to be encouraging whenever you know in rehearsal on Thursday night we only made it halfway through the song and we had to kill it? Kill the click because we were way off in. Oh Yeah Yeah. We've had to do that crazy going off in your head and when you do that you know your team immediately just feels like we didn't do it or not into I'm trying to learn how to be an encouraging right now and and a team a team builder and I and trying to get like twenty thirty people all on the same path To be an excited about this and willing to do it's just hard to introduce and hard to do and it's been challenging for me as a leader. Yeah I don't we're we're out of time today. We'll probably after pick this back up at a later time man. What important topic? I'll just say that I'm not really your best. GotTa Talk to because I managed to run off two or three drummers like this but but when guys are they can they can be very talented. But they've played on their own so many years here's the becomes a detriment to them opening being opening something new But the reason for a click track is the tightness of the ban. Once they learn into play I remember at a fifty year old man that that was a little bit standoffish at first but once we play but his attitude complete change she said well it freezes. Its more free now now and I went well. I wish everybody got that so I would just encourage you to continue pushing a little bit but having a lot of one conversations and let them see your heartbeat in demonstrating y. Hi It helps They need to get the. Why are they won't let him do not come around and they really get why they should do it? Then they'll start going okay and they need to experience it in rehearsal. Boy You're right about. They need to have some wins in hersal to the point where they almost begin to want it and then introduce it because put it out there too quick and they fail in front of her body. It's even even more difficult so yep and I'll say one last one last comment it's pushed. It's pushed me more to As I know this is not a very spiritual topic. Click tracks but it's actually pushed me to pray more for my team. It's pushed me to pray that Hey I wanna pray specifically that this difficult change. I know. It's challenging for person. That's never done it. No matter how great it would musician addition they are going to be challenging. I WanNa pray specifically for team members that That we have open hearts and minds to this and I WANNA pray for my team that we continue to have unity and I don't end up with half my team. Good with it and half not Well I want to pray for unity. Pray for specific people That we just That God just gives them that encouragement that they needed that empowerment. That they need to go for it and do will. That's been because your your personal humidity and prayer and I think ought to give you the wisdom you need and the breakthrough but it's just it just takes time. Hey we need to shut her down here I wanna I wanNA pray for you Jordan and you and Kinsey Not I know you're back and go to birth class and so We're GonNa let you go.

"dwayne" Discussed on The Heart of Worship Podcast with Dwayne Moore

"And that too simple childlike trust man we have joined the journey. That brings me to something else that we didn't exactly exactly plan to talk about today. But boy it just fits so well. I'm GonNa ask you this and kind of put you on the SPA bit. But I know you're going to have an answer force on this one Just whatever's in your heart about it but I think sometimes people see us leading worship from a stage from a platform and and they wonder for real you know Especially if they know we've gone too hard time and then we're up there saying like guys in charge or smiling maybe. Do you think that it's a it's IT'S I. I guess I don't know how to couch this question but should we be concerned as a worship leader about whether they think we're real or not or should we just get up there and express the joy anyway. I mean I mean you know I don't WanNa fake it but I mean I'm not faking it when my mom passed away I I mean I wasn't happy about it but I knew where she was man I knew and so even the mist of joy. And I think there's a few people out there in the congregation when I was serving in Louisville that wondered is this for real so have backed off surpressed that or is it okay to express joy. I guess that's really my question as a leader. Now it's awesome question question Really good and I. I think I think I've kind of you know. I've wrestled with that myself and tried to figure out how to present present sent myself in a way that is reflective of. What's my what's really going on in my heart and want to represent God and so yeah But you know I think about my my my grandmother's funeral Kinda interesting I told you I'm I'm working at my home church now and My my grandmother in mother went to this church and she passed away. You know and I think in two thousand two thousand ten or eleven. She passed away and Eh she was just a faithful faithful woman to the Lord and she loved God with all our heart and and before she died she had had a couple songs and I got to. I got to lead worship at my grandmother's Really Cool and you know and it wasn't wasn't like just music where people were watching watching. Either it was. She wanted us to stand up and sing together in praise. The Lord Leather. I got got to lead that And that was a cool moment of realizing realizing that I can have. I can have that joy while being on you know a stage in front of people I can have joy I think and then I think about week to week here now. You know we worship all of us doing this we can get kind of riots and ups and downs so presenting joy joy When we're kind of leading week-to-week like that I think it's really important to just have a good balance. I don't I don't know if I'd WanNa say always have to have joy and or just be like. Oh I just have to be real and dump everything on Sunday. So I've always tried to find a balance there there moments when I want to share personal kind of stuff from the you know from my position in front of people In and really have that vulnerability so I think i WanNa always have vulnerability when I look. I think that's really important to be able to just to show our hearts but at the same time I don't Wanna get up and just kind of like always dump my stuff And just always be like. You won't believe what happened to be this. We're here and just always be always be that way. There are times when it's okay to be vulnerable in really share your heart about something You know for example I. I wouldn't mind sharing about at this point. I wouldn't mind sharing about miscarriage. I think that we've processed I wouldn't mind sharing about that and a lot of my church family knows that about me But at the same time I do have. You've got a job to do right. I need I I need to get up and help people help. People Engage H.. Help people sing help. People connect with the Lord and and there are some moments when you're not feeling it and you still gotta go. Oh for it. I think it comes back to what I said earlier. You gotTa try to worship through it yourself and so For me I guess if I were to give a tip kind of practical for me being being authentic on onstage platform whatever word you use that has to be Overflow of personal worship through the week so I'll good word I if I can take those songs I got pull here from working earlier today. If I can take those songs play through them a couple of times this week here find a quiet space to worship and really connect with God through what I'm singing and and figure out what those songs mean to me and how they connect with my own story. I I think that helps us put out that authenticity on Sunday. Morning whenever we're leading cause we're not just singing. Words were really. We've we've worshiped through the week and we're overflowing on Sunday and that helps to be authentic. Yeah I've I've heard this over the years You just need to be unreal. Get Real be real and you know I I get that but And I agree with that. I actually completely agree with that but I think the realness. That's the ugly realness that really should have been dealt with off the stage. I feel like That that's something you do with the Lord and just get honest with him. And here's what's going on. Or if it's a sin issue confess it if it's just a attitude or confusion or disillusionment bring that to the law. Bring it to somebody you trust and pass that out but on stage is not really in my opinion the time to do that. Now if there's just a particular burden is hitting you and there's not worked and yet you've tried. Sure be vulnerable honorable. Be Honest and open with your people but to me I think. I don't think we're doing a service by. Let's continue to focus on her own issues. No no during condition half hour hour of service. We're going to focus on the Lord because as you said earlier. He's in charge. So if we get that before we walk up there That's not faking. If I'm full of joy that that's a God thing I think the best thing we do for our people I think the most important part we can do is point them ourselves. Our is to the Lord and so I don't want to spend a Lotta time speaking about myself. I will take time to do it but I guess that's where I I. I feel like getting real. That's a good thing but the real Nisa comes out. I want to be a spirit fill realness and not my not in my nature illness. You know so anyway point pointing people to the Lord rather you know sure there. I can leave my story and you and I think we should i. I think that relates and and I I don't think we get up and say he's got me last hard difficult. I make mistakes. You can say things like that yet but I think dwelling on them is doesn't really help anyone very much. I'm in my opinion Let's point them to the Lord Pointer is to the one in charge. And and so but I you're you're you and Kinzir examples of that you've stayed faithful in the midst of it. Some some people after three miscarriages would go. Like I'm done with this scourge Dandy things not all it's cracked up to be eh but you didn't think that coming in man you you already knew that you know in life we're going to have tribulations be good. Cheer Jesus said I've overcome the world and I think we just I think instead of being surprised when we have troubles. Maybe we ought to be surprised. If we don't have troubles you know and And be thankful all those seasons when when things are good so I think it's a healthy conversation of how we take that from the pavement up to the pool pit so to speak though and how we move that into that leadership leadership and I know we're talking a lot of people on the podcast that are listening that are pastors and worship leader. So I wanted to ask you. I had you on the on the podcast. What you thought about that? So didn't forewarn warn you but I think that was a healthy conversation. Yeah it's a great conversation to have. Yeah and so so. I think that's good for today on that. I I WANNA take a break break in a few moments our come back and talk talk to you about the persecution of the saints in in the in the countries but also Jordan. You've got a unique perspective if you've traveled us a lot in fact for a while you are director in helping us with both international missions we were doing and there's pretty exciting stuff happening awards moving in even Iran. You hear all the negative about Iran because of course when we're dealing with you know with as a country with them all but in the midst of thank God is moving in Iran and so and also in Ethiopia and Kenya another place. We've been together so when we come back and talk about a little bit that'd be a fun conversation encouraging all right we'll take a break. We're back in a moment. Thanks.

"dwayne" Discussed on The Heart of Worship Podcast with Dwayne Moore

"Hey everyone we're back with the heart of worship podcast. My fellow votes does Jordan Puttin and Jordan you've got a real unique perspective on keeping joy through the difficult times and and I ask you permission in advance because I know this is a very sensitive incentive subject but the fact that you are You and your and your wife Kinsey or pregnant and and twenty three weeks along. That is huge to anybody. But in in your situation I think it's particularly interesting and noteworthy. Because you have have gone through a lot in your lives even to get to this point so I thought if you wouldn't mind just take a few moments and share your journey of pregnancy. Yeah Yeah I would love to. I am very excited to be twenty three weeks long and But also very nervous us and there is a a fear that still creeps in every now and then and I sense that and feel it and I've tried to figure out how to how to overcome that through my hope in Christ and and like you said the joy that we have in him So so yes so my wife Kinsey and I been married For a few years and thought that when we were ready we would just have a child and turned out that it wasn't quite that easy And over the course of two years. We had three miscarriages marriages and In just they happen at different times. And so the excitement of you've expecting a child and then the disappointment Of of that being taken away and law is Is Very much an up and down process as you can imagine. And I know many people have experienced it and as we've been more willing to open up our hearts and share with other people we've found that lots of other people have been through that that same that same story and about one in four but one in four women have experienced miscarry. Well Yeah Yeah. It's just something that I think culturally. We've maybe have just not talked about and it just happens and you move along and but you really don't I think you still always have that. there Yo- you know you remember that you you had a child and so Me Believing fully that. That child is a child at conception that well you know we have three babies that I'd that's right right right and I agree with that. Look forward to meeting you know and So maintaining joy through that that was your original the question. So that's that's a little bit of the story and You know obviously there's lots to that. Maintaining joy through it is is really hard. It was the last two years. Here's on honestly man that's been it's probably been one of the hardest things I've went through You know definitely have had other lost and live in grief and You know people die and divorced and I mean there's all kinds of things that that have been challenging in life just isn't everybody's life if but The the ups and the downs of losing losing a child like that is. It's it's shocking. It's extremely difficult. It puts it. Put me at a low that I've maybe hadn't felt before And because it was so a personal you know so person to lose somebody else in life is really challenging but to lose your own child that you're expecting just had a it had a punch to it that I didn't expect and I know here's what I'll say is what I mean. I I know people that have had one miscarriage we had to but what to have three. Yeah my goodness man. I can't imagine that really. Yeah Yeah and I. I think that to maintain joy. It's just staying staying the course and and really putting putting hope in the promises of God and really trying to worship through it. Yeah that's hard to do I mean if if one of the first miscarriage too you know an interesting story how it happened how it taught me right from the beginning and I didn't know that we were going to have to more after to that from the beginning so I was actually. I don't even know if you know this joint I was. I was leading a worship set with Kinsey and we're doing it together and it was actually a fundraiser for a mission trip that I was going on with you and We were we were raising the money to go to Africa. And do you know all about what next level does and so I was leading worship with a van that night and and I was speaking in between about sharing about next level worship. And what we were doing and it was fundraiser and Kinsey got sick an hour before it happened Had had to walk off the platform. Go to the bathroom. She never came back and I had to continue leading worship in that. Wow Not really knowing what was going on. And now and and and I- deep down. I knew what was going on because I just had that. I had that feeling healing and And so my wife's experiencing experiencing a miscarriage and some of the ladies. There were just amazing and sat with her And helped her and and I kind of I got through a couple more songs than we had a intermission. kind of break and The point I was fully aware what was going on and and but I l.. I won't forget the Song I was singing that day. So right in the middle of that. tragedy I. I was singing that song the degrade I am good song. Yeah yeah good song and it took a whole new meaning for I mean it took a whole new meaning the God's in control of everything and And I can still praise him because because he's in control because he doesn't change because he's faithful and so That sounds kind of in some ways. Grateful that I found myself you know worshipping worshiping and actually leading worship In that moment because it it helped me realize what I have to continue to through this to find joy. Even if I don't feel feel it right there in the moment I have to worship through it and so wow I think God used that to teach me right from the beginning and then of course two more happened Bendon and finding joy in that was really challenging and made me question and and all of it though made me I think and I hope made me grow into Finding even more joy today that were twenty two twenty three weeks pregnant and expecting the baby boy and the way that I find. That's incredible and but the joy that I find in in the Lord has to be more than all that it's bigger than circumstances so there's a little bit of my testimony my story and My Wife's store. I'm glad you shared that. I was We're we're doing good though we're excited. Oh yeah well. It reminds me of Is Hebrews chapter twelve verse. Two were says who told that Jesus the author and the finisher our faith who for the joy set before him endured the cross despising. The shame has now sat down at the right hand of the throne of God and having so you know it's interesting I don't it didn't say that. He was enjoying the moment of being crucified. But for the joy set before him and I think it's an unrealistic expectation that you good up there in in the midst of your. You're in that moment and when your wife's bathroom somewhere miscarriage and you're just like who you're happy boy. Life's great no not always great but but you I love how you said. Did you worshiped through it. And you just determined to keep your eyes on the one in charge and and there's joy in that there's joy that's coming in there and now you've got something to look forward to. It's like when she's turned the water into wine. That was at the end of the wedding ceremony. Is He always saves the best to last. And there's always joy and hope for a future in the Lord manoir get the preaching on that one. Love that Yeah Yeah you you know I mean. Some people live their lives wishing and thinking about what happened in the past and that was their biggest biggest moments for us at the Christian. It's it's what's ahead and and and even though we go through difficult times the joy that set before us can bring us peace and solace and then even joined the moment I mean is that asking too much is that sounds. That sounds crazy for a person that doesn't know the Lord but for you and me type experience to go. No that's not crazy. That's reality. Yeah it does sound crazy He does I don't I don't I don't know how to explain it sometimes. It's like but I I do know that I felt the joy of the Lord and the darkest places and you know the joy of the Lord is my strength. Breath comes to mind that from chapter eight or wherever. Yeah Yeah Yeah Nehemiah and Just really it's true and there is a a truly is a peace that surpasses our understanding. That's out the S it. It really is there and for are for the person that doesn't know it and There maybe if you're listening just in a really hard time. I know that they're there truly is a piece out there. That's better than anything we can ask for. Hope for Here we can try to muster up ourselves It's something that God gives and and I hope that you seek it and I hope that you worship through whatever it is you're going through and know that God is there no that he's with you and faith and I think that's the key what you just said it's that it's knowing what we don't see with our eyes but no inter heart and just believing and trusting Without out that I think there's it's impossible to have joy and peace but knowing that God's in charge that that's really the pinnacle of praise isn't it. Surely the pinnacle of of where the joy comes from. Is this no one. I was listening to In reading actually Part of the testimony from Jonathan Evans. Dr Tony Evans Son At the funeral of his his mom. Dr Tony's he's wife just a few days ago and and how he said you know. We don't deserve anything. Everything we have comes from deserve nothing and I assault. Wow what a perspective that you know. He just he's at peace with whereas mom is you know and and I think we if we if we approach life with humility league.

"Yeah. I totally agree with that. I think he's right to do that but I I still I promise you. Ah You know I struggle with that too because of late. Now that in our circumstances are now we're in a full time ministry where you know raising the funds signs and all the things that have to do I can allow that to to weigh me down too much and I think we can all the you know. All of us have their own unique circumstances in life. No one's special you know we're they're all struggling with our own version of burdens in difficult. But if we're not careful those can way out on on a so long that they that they wear down that joy. And that's that's what I needed to hear that day mad and I think I probably a lot of people during felt like I did need to be reminded of Hebrews wrote about Jesus for the joy set before him endured the cross burying the shame. But the way you hear you preach that day it sound like you believe he. He walked even through that time with some kind of deep set joy see. I can't imagine engine that but I know what God's power I can do that but only only through the Lord. Can you pull that off. And that's the hard part about joy is you can't directly directly chased joy. You know it's not something It's it's it's out there and you know what it is like you can't white-knuckle your way to joy. No you know it's fruit of God's spirit inside of you it's his fruit is not yours and so has. That was teaching. I wanted to give our people some practical ways of of chasing joy loyd even though you can't chase it directly. I think you can develop spiritual practices in your life that lead to more joy. You know I think this is something you've gotta live and saying what what things can I do. That would promote our culture Create a culture of joy in my life. You know I think it. It comes down to the spiritual practices because I think sometimes we're thinking why does need to be more joyful. It's a light switch in so That kind of led me to think I would have some spiritual disciplines that we could start to implement in our lives as a as a a group of believers that that we could promote more joy in our lives. Will you know you're begging the question. We love to hear what some of those are and I was even been thinking you know. Sometimes you get out of a sermon and you start thinking man. I wish I would have thought about that or You know right before we started a podcast Stephen talking about you know he's GonNa go some guys and go go. Hiking backpacking in and I was thinking over my last. You know few years or so. There's so many things in my life I'm joy and I've forgotten that I enjoy them You know kayaking fishing. Life gets so busy that you know I'll look up up and I'm like man. I haven't done that in four or five years But I really enjoy that. INOSITOL think. Sometimes it's enough. Some some of it is just sitting back and saying you know that that brings joy to my life. That's a time where I feel close to God and I need to do more of that. You know we need to be intentional about some some of these things it takes intention -ality in The one really that stood out to me and I got this from John Mark. comber he is a pastor. We're out of Portland and one of my really a great resource that I use in preaching He just yeah he just has some really good insights on Fasting staying on on Sabbath seen in on joy and he really broke down. This discipline of celebration of making Any you I think that disciplined in celebration don't go together but to make that a discipline in your life that you're constantly celebrating and what he pulled out with was really a the passage I'd never thought about So in the Old Testament a lot of times we take some of those principles I think sometimes we wrongly put them on ourselves You know sometimes with the Thai are with you know Old Testament principles. That are better do it. I just don't think we're under that law but but I do think there's a lot of wisdom and looking back at them insane I if God had his people that he wanted to be set apart doing this. There's gotta be something to it There's gotta be some wisdom in doing and there's one of those in deuteronomy fourteen where he says Basically after you bring the first time the to the to the store houses or the temple or you know the first fruits to God. He's basically saying the second tie the second ten percent he said. I want you to I want you to keep out in at the end of the year. I want you to take all that tied and I want you to use it to celebrate and he said basically I want you to take it to Jerusalem. He said. But if you can't if you can't carry all those supplies to Jerusalem to use he's ten percent of your your your possessions to celebrate. He said just take the money to buy it when you get to Jerusalem So He's basically saying listen isn't give ten percent to God didn't take the next ten percent in US bat to celebrate and I thought man. This is such an interesting principle because it seems wasteful. You think the next ten percent would be to the poor You you seem like there's a third of the better use of the next ten percent but he's like now now. Don't forget this. You need to make sure celebrating and I started doing a little math in our body. You know we're we're probably about four hundred hundred families. He's at our church. And when I was planting the Church I did a demographic study in the average household income in our in our you know ten mile radius. This is about sixty thousand dollars so you do that. Math You know our four hundred families are probably bringing in about twenty four million dollars years so so to keep this biblical principle would mean that we as a body would take two point four million dollars and we would celebrate with that. I mean we would throw a party just for us and God yet God in his word calls that wise we would all look at that and say well what about the poor you know how many mouths week via two point four million dollars. In and again I heard somebody say. That's exactly what Juda said you know. When they were using the money but other things he was like well? What about the poor? We're guides say no we had. We've gotTA enjoy got to celebrate this. I've got to make sure you're reminding yourself up my goodness of who I him of how good it is to be. Chosen me to be part of this family and man that just blew me away. I'm thinking main if this is what God says wise how have we gotten so far from the. I'm not saying we ever go back to that. I don't think metrics will ever spend two point four million on throwing a party but we've gotten really really far from there. Yeah you challenge our congregation that day and we were we were there of getting the enjoy for that as well but you just challenge them to not spend two point four million dollars of course but just to to take the season to celebrate with your family. Will you know those around you and not feel guilty about it and man that that spoke of himes to me and that that really ministered to our family we walked away going all right. Let's go let's go celebrate some al.. Let's go party because Elsa that is now I see that more difficult principal and honestly Matt. I've never seen that before so in get rich talk about that. What if convicted me as you know you start start budgeting you start making five year plans part of that? You know my my wife and I were saying all right. We want to get to certain point so we can continue to increase our generosity. But what I haven't thought about my five year plan is are we. Are we looking at taking a portion of what we bring opinion and saying. You know what we're going to use this celebrate as a family or we're GONNA use this. We're not going to feel guilty about going on vacation. We're going to use this. We're not going to feel guilty about going to have a nice meal. Invite a bunch of people over in feed all you know. I just think it freed me up to say Lord there's wisdom in this. This is not wasteful. You're calling me to have this discipline of celebration and I think as Christians. We missed that because the world doesn't she that a anymore they're not looking at the church and saying man those people they know how to party. They don't celebrate And I I think that's what convicted me the most is. We don't look like that anymore. This has been a very very Insightful Conversation Yeah I knew that it would be and I just want to say to everyone. That's listening in here Christmas time. Don't miss the next few days. Scott I mean I mean we've all got plenty of things as we can be working on but laid aside make time for your family. Make Time Make Memories. My my sister called me this morning and and My sisters had a lot of health problems. But she's doing better and we're all happy so glad to see her doing better and she called me. She was laughing and bubbly early and I haven't heard her like that in a long time honestly the last time we saw her she was in hospital just a month ago but she she's at home she's doing great and she said I woke up tonight with this great idea and she told me about something just crazy funny. She wants kit basically at Christmas time. And I'm thinking Oh my where we gotta get the overalls and we got. It is going to be crazy. There's going to be fun guitars and this anyway. It was just a fun idea from a movie she'd seen and she said just get up there and ham it up and just have fun and laugh and I thought leaning more that. Because I don't think to do that I I'm so in work mode. I don't stop to the South Line. And here's a seventy euro lady that hadn't forgotten how fun and I thought. Thank you for that and I needed to be reminded that life's not just just about nose to the grind but it's those moments where you just have a good time and enjoy life and I think now I see more than ever since Matt preached it as pointed out this honors. God guys this is not some feel guilty about go. Go enjoy yourself for God's glory so did I sum it up okay with that man. Is that kind outlets perfect. Think that's what we were called to be marked I think Charles spurgeon he says this he says those that are loved of beloved of the Lord must must be the most happy and joyful people to become anywhere upon the face of the earth. That's should Marquez. Is Believers says apart not only on Christmas but year round that we should be mark back. Happiness Joy dwayne again. I think you you've been a great example of this to me. I know right now. You know you may not feel it. And you're you're you're right now. In the in the midst of you know circumstances really defined your ministry a lot of times you know pieces falling into the right place which can cause is you. Take your focus. You've been a You've been example this so again. Thank you for allowing me to talk to. You taught me something. The feelings mutual Stephen Back in a moment.

"If Jesus this is the central point of the story the rest of the year then he will remain that. Actually that's feels you know what I mean if all your kids are concerned about and this is coming from someone who doesn't have kids so again feel free to disagree and write this off but if if if San all your kids are concerned about on Christmas and I guess if that's if that's it's an issue you're having you probably also check and see what what is the life of around the other eleven months because I think that's a deeper issue. Maybe well I remember from me when I like. You figured it out. There's just didn't make sense to me that this that one person could do all of that so when I was about third grade. It's one they. I was standing in the hallway and my house hit me and so I went and asked my mom and she was honest with me. Told me flat out. You know this is really what's happened but we as when you were younger earlier. You know we felt like this was the wife you enjoy Christmas more. It has made accents. Yeah it was never a matter which is one of that to take place. Jesus Jesus never ever took a back seat in our home anybody anything I mean. We always went to church faithfully. We do the Christmas programs. Church mother was a big take part of that album often she she led them actually did them so that was already always a big deal but the San man was cool to in San Hose. Like hanging out with us to kind of thing. It was just part of our culture but it wasn't the thing right. It's always been Jesus and Nick Sabin. Okay well Nick Nick Nick Bay had been around back then. Yeah yeah he would have probably made the cut on that but and then maybe Senate third that's Alabama's head football coach for those of us Soliven Alabama. I definitely think Santa is down at the third level near right. Sabin would definitely be number two but hopefully as you said if you live all year long long is a Christian La Christian family people. Don't children wouldn't interpret that has suddenly Santa's everything but now when they go to school and the and you the programs that they do at school and everything everything secularize now in the United States so much that I think we do as parents have to go even hurt the more than twenty years ago when you were growing up. We were parenting in. Yeah I think you've got to be really intentional. Making sure they know who the real reason for the season so I think even more so so now than ever so talking about the history of it. Saint Nick. Yeah I am I am I wrong in thinking that he was actually a pretty big champion. Yeah I mean. He was the saint of Christianity like in a in a good way though he was a really positive character he was. He was a monk actually early in Christian history and so even eluding to that. He helped people one of his stories. We read is that He. This is back in like two hundred sixty sixty ad in modern day Turkey. This is where he originated. There would be a real person by the name Nick Nicholas and and he helped some ladies out of like prostitution that could have been sold prostitution instead they got married and he was always helpful to people and he developed hoped alleged for that and and it all started from that. Yeah yeah so I think tying into those things you know because it's one thing you can have your nativity scene with Santa ballinger everything that's cool. But that's it's not just a fictional idea. I think in reality from what I understand you Saint Nick's life portrayed for trade that in so tying that into understanding your kids understanding of Santa Claus could be really cool thing. Yeah I think so we you did a a musical. He wrote actually a few years ago and ended it all ended with with Santa bowing to to Jesus and I think as long as the kids and all of us Adults to understand that he is still the priority over anything else then I I. I don't think you're poisoning. Your children are ruining them by teaching about something that ultimately just something to look back on and that was a fun memory and so yeah Yeah and the ideas Jordan said. It's cool because then you can turn voted into an idea. That's why my mom did even when I was in third grade. She we continue to celebrate the idea of giving and being kind to people and helpful and and the fun and Christmas. They continued that although now. We knew that there wasn't a real. Yeah so yeah well good so we're GONNA come back in a moment. We're GONNA take a break before we do that. It's one one of do a a plug here as we end our year. Please pray for nextstep worship.

"All right. We are back talking now about some things that we are learning last week. We talk in your Tattoo. Yeah that was pretty today. We're going to cover another one another tattoo. Your mom will not be happening. It's it's my mom and just so in case you guys all know Steven. He's my son so so anyway you hear some of that sometimes come out when our family talk and his mom is not real happy with his tattoos but she she she likes it she likes it. That's what she's you keep telling yourself you keep it honest with a self. Keep telling you but I will say that at starbucks today. A Guy I total strangers just walked up. What does that Tattoo me? I gotta say that was cool moment some guy from la or something. Yeah he just wanted to know and you got to Winston. What is to him? It was very cool. I'll sit there and watched it. I loved it. Yeah so I'm not motivated to get a tattoo because of it but I'm just saying that was cool. Did you tell your mom that'll make better. I usually likes it already. The whatever okay all right so so i WanNa talk about what I've been reading recently. We've done a some choice. Resource Awards awards next level worship has come out with those and you can go to our website and check them out twelve different resources. Some books are music. Some are online the courses that you can check out. These are things that we believe are really valuable. An excellent and good worship the allergy very are excited about the choice resource awards but one of those is a book by Mike Harland. It's a book called Worship Essentials and I'm not GonNa get into all the details that I won't tell you to go read the book but it's really really good. Especially if you are a worship leader or a pastor now realized that everybody listening is one of those but maybe the Lord may call all you to be that one day down the road or just as a good church member that wants to support his passer passer and leaders. This'll be a good book for you. Mike. Carlin wrote it. And we've got an interview. I did hour long interview with Mike. Akai went up to his office in Nashville Dinner. An interview with him and it's a great interview. He did a got a job to explain the book. But what I WANNA point out to. You is that he's got four four parts to this book and again I won't get into the details tales of what what all these are but the first thing he says and he impacts it in the book is called till the story so the First Section about telling the story. And here's what he said Stephen Authors. There's really good. He said you can't tell a story that you don't have I think he's got a good point he said so when you're leading others in worship leading them to worship God you need to have a story of your own what do you think about that. You gotTa have a reason to leave. Then you gotta understand what you're leading wire leading them in what you're talking about. Would you agree. Yeah Yeah I mean you could get up into sing the song and his mouth words come out. But what about if he knew at the song would that mean more. I'm sure the NFC idea it's like telling somebody he uses A. I don't know if he uses this'll choice and this may be minute but he talked about this in the interview. We talked about it together. It's like telling somebody about a great restaurant but you've never been to that restaurant it's like it's like listening to somebody interviewed about parenting and they have no kids. They've never parented. They've never been to the restaurant. They have no experience. But they're talking about. Do you want someone leading you in worship this not experiencing worship. That's his point in the first part of the book you gotTa tell a story and first first of all you gotTa have a story. Yeah Okay and then you got to communicate that story well and and I WANNA get into this in a different con. Different podcast outcast. I WanNa talk about leading and influencing people engaging people from the platform. That's a different conversation. But that's what he gets into in the first part of this book telling the story communicated way that's interesting and engaging and so and so and then the second one is is make disciples and this is what I love this book and I love what might extend so much and am not learning. This is I'm being reminded of it. And I'm being encouraged by but this somehow I love that our minister has been trying to do for longtime as make disciples through through worship and and and so it's not just waiting for the teachers or the Smog Margaret leaders to do it. We all have a responsibility to help other people grow. And that's what that's what he talks about in there. So that was very encouraging to see make disciples whatever role you play. If you're the nursery workers you can you can encourage an an and some influence the parents parents and the and the teachers around you you can make an impact and and your ministry can help make disciples okay. Then the third one is engaged the body so he said and I wanna hear what you think to this but he said it's not enough just to sing to them. You want to engage them. You don't WanNa just stand up and Sing Adam. You want them to get engaged as well. Yes I think. That's this great this leadership. Yep It definitely is and and And the fact is they're going to be engaged by something if it's not you it'll be their cell phones or it'll what they've got going on tomorrow tomorrow or it'll be nice for sure you know. The Dude looks funny on the front row. Yeah I think that's super important plus it's just a it's it just shows the unification of body. That's what I love about being worship leader under about more than anything. You know. Grounded in faith with a bunch of people. You know it encourages me does. And so I think that's total diverse in thanks psalm. Thirty six says o taste and see the Lord's good idea if you've gone to that great restaurant. Don't you WanNa go tell people about that. Great restaurant of course if we if we've tasted the Lord is so to speak and in our personal tom in our daily time and we've got to know him fall in love with him. We want others to do that too. We don't want them just to set up there and watch us saying we want them to experience. His goodness experiences grace experienced the the words in the meaning of the words were singing. And I think that's the point of this book and it certainly when I believe engage the body. Don't just let them be spectators. Yeah Okay and then the fourth thing he says is a spire with purpose and say about that today is that this is so important important to not only know the songs are singing are what you're doing in your church but no why you're doing it to snow why I think there's a lot of people don't really know why they're involved with a wide with church An- and participating something stop and think. Why do you do that? And that's what he said. Aspire with purpose have reasons let people know that your purpose is to glorify the Lord yes but also engage people people and all these other things just have purpose and have a system. He talks about a system in that book worship. Essentials says how are you going to accomplish these things know how you're going to have the purpose for it and stick to it and because in the long run it will pay off love that. That's good. Yeah I think purposes so important because often whether it's it's bleeding worshiper music or something totally totally different. Someone will get into something and to a meaning whether it's hobby or career because they like it just because they enjoy it which is good. He's me you should enjoy joy it but if that is the reason the problem comes into play because inevitably one day you're gonNA wake up and you're gonNA hate it this. Is that all of this where you're going with this. But it reminds me of when he said it. You said you watched a shark tank and you saw a gallon. There that that that was that was that he was he was trying that show. Oh was is one where people bring them ideas and try to get them invest in their business ideas there and this guy brought a very unusual entrepreneurs walking in front of four four or five investors like big time invested right. And you remember what you told me though the guy yes. Yeah so this guy is. I have no idea what was in that guys head when he started that company or want so no. That doesn't relate to what I'm talking about. Oh yes he does. No wait a minute because you said is that. He said his wife working fulltime. Because somebody asked him how you support me it was that though. So that's why brought it up because he's he literally walks in and puts these awful smelling canes wants most vacant his whole his whole deal was was like was like I was about getting married now wife but she hated the way. My apartment's bill so it was like I gotta make it smell good but I wanted to still be manly. You know so. He's got Kamalia Campfire one. That smells like one. Smells like Bacon and then one. It was like a joke. Granted he knew it was stupid. But it's Molly Fart. He brings is this in and I mean the the design of the logo and the stuff at all it like something you'd see in the kids section. Yeah but anyway he was is They ask him investors ask him. How do you support yourself on this? And he's like well. My wife Works full-time made one of them. Said they just called it out like your wife works full-time while you pour four candles. Yeah all day long. And it's just I can. He's gotten somewhere not company because he's on it so we're not picking on him but the point that I'm trying to make up well if you're listening the FARC. Oh my God so what. I'm trying to make it is is is your purpose worthy of your time and investment. Because that's what guys giving a lot of time. Yeah I just think I think on the days when you wake up and you hate it if there's no deeper motive if deeper grounding then you tend to fall by the wayside don't we have of all people in the world don't we have the greatest purpose of all and that's to ultimately are again. The heart of worship Russian is to is to live a life of worship that encourages others to one or two and a great purpose of also. So so you know I was thinking about this too so that they get really like maybe the rest of us just kind of tired. Sometimes you know you can go to be discouraged. You know if you're trying to lead are the people who were going to get it. Are They GonNa follow you know do they. Are we going to be able to Iraq right. Now we're trying to raise money for the end of the year in our ministry organization. We're trying to raise funds for big for next year and you just wonder if we're GONNA be able to do that or people are GonNa get it. They GonNA support you all these questions and it can be very discouraging and what. I was reminded of his something. Paul said he said. Don't be don't don't be weary and well doing for. In time and time you will reap a harvest. If you don't give up powerful Eddie. If you don't quit don't quit just know why you doing. And that's purpose that I think going back to the book worship essentials this what he's talking about spar with purpose know Y. You're doing what you do and do it with all your mind even when you get tired sometimes you just got to remind yourself. There's a deeper purpose absolutely.

Especially if you are a worship leader or a pastor now realized that everybody listening is one of those but maybe the Lord may call all you to be that one day down the road or just as a good church member that wants to support his passer passer and leaders. This'll be a good book for you. Mike. Carlin wrote it. And we've got an interview. I did hour long interview with Mike. Akai went up to his office in Nashville in an interview with him. And it's a great interview. He did a got a job to explain the book. But what I WANNA point out to you is that he's got four four parts to this book and again I won't get into the details tales of what what all these are but the first thing he says and he impacts it in the book is called till the story so the First Section about telling the story. And here's what he said Stephen Authors. There's really good. He said you can't tell a story that you don't have I think he's got a good point he said so when you're leading others in worship leading them to worship God you need to have a story of your own what do you think about that. You gotTa have a reason to leave. Then you gotta understand what you're leading wire leading them in what you're talking about. Would you agree. Yeah Yeah I mean you could get up into sing the song and his mouth words come out. But what about if he knew at the song would that mean more. I'm sure the NFC idea it's like telling somebody he uses A. I don't know if he uses this'll choice and this may be minute but he talked about this in the interview. We talked about it together. It's like telling somebody about a great restaurant but you've never been to that restaurant it's like it's like listening to somebody interviewed about parenting and they have no kids. They've never parented. They've never been to the restaurant. They have no experience. But they're talking about. Do you want someone leading you in worship this not experiencing worship. That's his point in the first part of the book you gotTa tell a story and first first of all you gotTa have a story. Yeah Okay and then you got to communicate that story well and and I WANNA get into this in a different con. Different podcast outcast. I WanNa talk about leading and influencing people engaging people from the platform. That's a different conversation. But that's what he gets into in the first part of this book telling the story communicated way that's interesting and engaging and so and so and then the second one is is make disciples and this is what I love this book and I love what might extend so much and am not learning. This is I'm being reminded of it. And I'm being encouraged by but this somehow I love that our minister has been trying to do for longtime as make disciples through through worship and and and so it's not just waiting for the teachers or the Smog Margaret leaders to do it. We all have a responsibility to help other people grow. And that's what that's what he talks about in there. So that was very encouraging to see make disciples whatever role you play. If you're the nursery workers you can you can encourage an an and some influence the parents parents and the and the teachers around you you can make an impact and and your ministry can help make disciples okay. Then the third one is engaged the body so he said and I wanna hear what you think to this but he said it's not enough just to sing to them. You want to engage them. You don't WanNa just stand up and Sing Adam. You want them to get in gauged as well. Yes I think. That's this great this leadership. Yep It definitely is and and And the fact is they're going to be engaged by something if it's not you it'll be their cell phones or it'll what they've got going on tomorrow tomorrow or it'll be nice for sure you know. The Dude looks funny on the front row. Yeah I think that's super important plus it's just a it's it just shows the unification of the body. That's what I love about being worship leader under about more than anything. You know. Grounded in faith with a bunch of people. You know it encourages me does. And so I think that's total diverse in thanks psalm. Thirty six says o taste and see the Lord's good idea if you've gone to that great restaurant. Don't you WanNa go tell people about that. Great restaurant of course if we if we've tasted the Lord is so to speak and in our personal tom in our daily time and we've got to know him fall in love with him. We want others to do that too. We don't want them just to set up there and watch us saying we want them to experience. His goodness experiences grace experienced the the words in the meaning of the words were singing. And I think that's the point of this book and it certainly when I believe engage the body. Don't just let them be spectators. Yeah Okay and then the fourth thing he says is a spire with purpose and say about that today is that this is so important important to not only know the songs are singing are what you're doing in your church but no why you're doing it to snow why I think there's a lot of people don't really know why they're involved with a wide with church An- and participating something stop and think. Why do you do that? And that's what he said. Aspire with purpose have reasons let people know that your purpose is to glorify the Lord yes but also engage people people and all these other things just have purpose and have a system. He talks about a system in that book worship. Essentials says how are you going to accomplish these things know how you're going to have the purpose for it and stick to it and because in the long run it will pay off love that. That's good. Yeah I think purposes so important because often whether it's it's bleeding worshiper music or something totally totally different. Someone will get into something and to a meaning whether it's hobby or career because they like it just because they enjoy it which is good. He's me you should enjoy joy it but if that is the reason the problem comes into play because inevitably one day you're gonNA wake up and you're gonNA hate it this. Is that all of this where you're going with this. But it reminds me of when he said it. You said you watched a shark tank and you saw a gallon. There that that that was that was that he was he was trying that show. Oh was is one where people bring them ideas and try to get them invest in their business ideas there and this guy brought a very unusual entrepreneurs walking in front of four four or five investors like big time invested right. And you remember what you told me though the guy yes. Yeah so this guy is. I have no idea what was in that guys head when he started that company or want so no. That doesn't relate to what I'm talking about. Oh yes he does. No wait a minute because you said is that. He said his wife working fulltime. Because somebody asked him how you support me it was that though. So that's why brought it up because he's he literally walks in and puts these awful smelling canes wants most vacant his whole his whole deal was was like was like I was about getting married now wife but she hated the way. My apartment's bill so it was like I gotta make it smell good but I wanted to still be manly. You know so. He's got Kamalia Campfire one. That smells like one. Smells like Bacon and then one. It was like a joke. Granted he knew it was stupid. But it's Molly Fart. He brings is this in and I mean the the design of the logo and the stuff at all it like something you'd see in the kids section. Yeah but anyway he was is They ask him investors ask him. How do you support yourself on this? And he's like well. My wife Works full-time made one of them. said the point is just. Call that out like your wife works full-time while you pour four candles. Yeah all day long. And it's just I can. He's gotten somewhere not company because he's on it so we're not picking on him but the point that I'm trying to make up well if you're listening the FARC. Oh my God so what. I'm trying to make it is is is your purpose worthy of your time and investment. Because that's what guys giving a lot of time. Yeah I just think I think on the days when you wake up and you hate it if there's no deeper motive if deeper grounding then you tend to fall by the wayside don't we have of all people in the world don't we have the greatest purpose of all and that's to ultimately are again. The heart of worship Russian is to is to live a life of worship that encourages others to one or two and a great purpose of also. So so you know I was thinking about this too so that they get really like maybe the rest of us just kind of tired. Sometimes you know you can go to be discouraged. You know if you're trying to lead are the people who were going to get it. Are They GonNa follow you know do they. Are we going to be able to Iraq right. Now we're trying to raise money for the end of the year in our ministry organization. We're trying to raise funds for big for next year and you just wonder if we're GONNA be able to do that or people are GonNa get it. They GonNA support you all these questions and it can be very discouraging and what. I was reminded of his something. Paul said he said. Don't be don't don't be weary and well doing for. In time and time you will reap a harvest. If you don't give up powerful Eddie. If you don't quit don't quit just know why you doing. And that's purpose that I think going back to the book worship essentials this what he's talking about spar with purpose know Y. You're doing what you do and do it with all your mind even when you get tired sometimes you just got to remind yourself. There's a deeper purpose.

"dwayne" Discussed on The Heart of Worship Podcast with Dwayne Moore

"Doing more Oran- you are listening to the heart of worship podcast. We're glad you joined us as we talk about topics and tints worshippers and leaders. The Co host is Stephen Moore. Welcome back man. Yeah episode number two. I think so. I'm having fun yeah me too. I really enjoyed last week's conversation about the grammy. Nominations more out of touch than I wish. I'd hate to admit with that but now I'm a little but I think that's those conversations get us more in touch. Yeah catch us up so that was good. Can't hurt no discolor and how to pronounce some of these artists. Names mm sound on them but today we're going to talk about another topic out there. That's that's I mean. A lot of people are talking about this. Connie coffee coffee drinking. What are you what what did you do? You brought in a fancy pitcher looking thing. It was just a French Press. Just all all guys hold those so I just microwaved. You're not supposed to do that so no no it's fine Hogan it's fine yeah I'm really bad about mark waving coffee being meaning I might rise because you're a connoisseur of coffee. Having not is the thing I like. Will you give me life craft coffee because that's kind of like what what starting in the coffee. The first place I went to was a row street and of itself and its won awards and all this the junk a friend of ours. Cal Gordon one that got me on onto the stuff. First Cup of coffee I ever had was craft coffee and I do love it. I really enjoy a good cup of quality coffee but I can also drink love gas station coffee all day long and the total so wild to me. Yeah and in the same way. I'll I'll literally microwave one cup of coffee five times because I get sidetracked and forget finish it but don't want to drink it cold even a couple of times forgotten it in the microwave after microwave day and come back the next day like. Oh there's coffee not sound good to me okay. So the let me tell you what happened the tell tell our listeners. What happened today? We were in Atlanta. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. We walked over with my sister is in hospital. She's doing much better but we would sit there while so we took a break and we were looking for coughing and what we he did was Thanksgiving Day. Nothing else opened but starbucks was open and we walked in and and the Liberals he said it. That's what it's actually I own. You're actually right but anyway we we. We supported them anyway and so all in the typical cinema not Allante and the guy said. Do you want that with reserve espresso. Like I don't know what that is and he all he. He was excited to tell me only place in the whole Southeast Reserve Espresso and then you order you order some kind of coffee and you got it you you got that. Yeah IT'S A. It's a brewing method called Siphon Siphon I didn't want espresso that was reserved because of what I was getting but you did you got it when the Siphon and the way they do it looks like a science experiment very cool I the stove. I has like the light underneath very through. What looks literally literally likes? What do they do it right in front of me? I mean you can you. Can you sit there and watch him do it. Yeah Yeah Yeah so it was a show. It was entertaining and it was probably the Best Cup of coffee from starbucks granted. So I'm glad because I paid sixty dollars for that. Thank you yeah. It One cup wasn't sixteen eighteen dollars. It was sixteen dollars. Whatever Hodel plus tax? I know my law. A included tax everywhere does not so much but anyway so so the point is that that you love great coffee but yet you'll go to the gas station. That didn't really make me feel better knowing that I spent six thousand dollars and you go. It's like one dollars two different kinds of drinks to me Okay it's sort of mindset. I mean you just walk in there thinking differently or what I mean. It's it's like one ordering coke and then another ordering Dr Pepper to me. They're not even they're not even really if the same thing. Well because of that different but that said obviously I don't mind either one. So how did we get off on coffee and then and then and drinking time microwave coffee is like drinking a flat coat. That's been sitting out for three days. No I'm just kidding. Well I don't drink coffee at all so I don't know we'll take a I'M A. I'm a dessert coffee so I don't understand you coffee connoisseurs. Oh I'm sorry you're not one but whatever you pour overs and you siphons sevens and all that I don't know about French Press. I don't know but that's not what we're talking about. But but it was interesting conversation. I'll go with it. Yeah you seem to really enjoy can let you up a little bit. I did I did but what we are talking about is a current topic that a lot of people are talking taking about so. We're going to talk about hanes. Just Jerry Gonyea where we are. What about that guy? Well I I saw like recently that your friends got Dawson's having him in for his string saint conference as riot in January. Yeah which is crazy that it's happening in pigeon forge right Tennessee. Yes what's the venue that's GonNa hold that many people They actually yeah. It's it's not. Remember the name of a bitch huge. Obviously huge and and Scott will run. You'll have multiple services or sessions so pack cement. They'll have I don't know they're they're probably top out at nine or ten thousand and and here's what was happening is amazing. He texted me the other day. He said you won't believe it. He said we're having one hundred churches per Our try to get into the conference once he announced Connie was coming. Soon as announcement went out. That's jumped up okay. So there is a minimum wage in. Turn turn off of her. She's got like six phones surrounding around here in a semi circle and she's sweating well. I'll give a shout out a hand. Lame and Gina is gene is the director of the conference offers so bless her heart that she's having kit having to navigate all of that but anyway but yeah it's it's just amazing that bad. This guy suddenly come on the scene in Christian among Christians. Now I know he's huge has been for many years now right as an artist but man suddenly the cushions have taken notice of it. Yeah yeah the whole living for Jesus now yeah thing you know. Obviously he's polarizing. Yeah you know you don't have to be on and social media for very long to discover that I think are at least as of votes conversation and so I've given thought to where I stand in in I'd no doubt I struggle to fight the cynical mindset. Set all the time in anything this included so your first reaction is. Hey yes I do. I believe I'm inscription attests to God can do what he wants you know. He's capable in other words aging the hardest okay hearts but I also know that this dude got Tory is because he's not an idiot and he knows how what People WanNa hear. He knows how to appeal. Audience knows things to say things not say and he has a history of just being off the wall. Bizarre kind of crazy controversial Them to garner publicity and so there's been rector song we were listening to the day. Did you notice the words not crazy. Like Kanye. His town like Kanye. Just not as crazy crazy. That's how the line goes you. Yeah that's what that's a good. A good artist goes into anyway I way that my mind thinking about it but at the same time I can't know that he's he hasn't changed you know and I try. I have to recognize that to anybody. Does Unitl non personally. He's given no indication so far that he had you know that he's lying or that he's just full of it and so I've landed with it personally personally is for me. It's too soon to tell that's where my stance it probably will be for the next year and it also means I'm GonNa Kua Mash out about it that it's important you know I'm not gonNA learn a lesson from that. I'm not going to start promoting. This dude is as the next great Christian influence or that. Everybody should listen to but what good does it do anybody to hop on facebook and like he's probably just yeah. BSN people you know. So I'm just GONNA keep up about well I have some thoughts about it As well and I also WanNa talk about in reference not so much about Connie directly but in that kind of flowing out of that. And because he's brought a couple of things that really highlighting calls and conversations that need to be had add and I think one of those conversations particularly as that you know how much leadership influence should we lend someone or give to someone or are encouraging to have in the Christian world. That's that's a that's a new Christian I mean is that is that why AH conversation. I want to take a break and we'll come back and talk about it but I think that's one thing that I have another thing. Just just how he's raising the bar and it will certainly bring in a different dimension to music and how that I'm wondering how what you think about how that will influence the church. I think it it is probably going to make an impact even the church and in his style of music. I don't know if it's still there. But it was like the top of the charts this Jesus King Allah. The people are listening to it. I was I was just riding on the road at Park has stopped at a red alert. Red Light the other night in here. Connie's album being played on the carbon-fiber and it's a it's gotten so much attention so that's bound to be but I feel like it will trickle down and I wanNA talk about that fair enough so let's take a break come back in a moment.
