Fresh update on "dwayne" discussed on /Film Daily
"Chris mendosa hollow art. Chris into the news today. And there's sort of a fascinating tidbit from one of our good buddies steven spielberg. That came out recently. While i can tell me about that. Yes rumor has it that universal went to spielberg and asked him Basically if they could re boot jaws they could do making new jaws. I guess franchise or new jaws movie. It's not entirely clear but the bottom line. Is they pitch this idea to steven spielberg and steven spielberg absolutely not. And where all the better for it okay. So spielberg says no. This sounds a lot to me like the the sort of back to the future. Thing where Bob gale and robert zemeckis have said like you know basically you cannot make any new version of back the future unless we sign off on it until we're dead and then after that you can kind of do your thing and obviously jaws is like one of spielberg's biggest and most most associated with him movies of his entire career but Chris if you will feel humor me for a second to To take the peter sorretto. Roll here. this episode and play devil's advocate for just a second. Is there a world. In which a jaws reboot is actually a kind of a good idea with the right filmmakers behind it. Obviously maybe if spielberg himself was a was producing it or something like that. If he was involved in some way would is. Just the idea of a jaws reboot so offensive to you that you couldn't imagine Conceive of scenario in which that would work or do you think there is a scenario where that might work yeah. I don't think. I know we should never say never. But let's get real. This is a bad idea and they should not do it. I'm sure they will. I'm sure this is an ad for a long time. But whenever steven spielberg shuffles off this mortal coil. I'm positive universal is going to be like all right. We're remaking jaws but i don't think it's a good idea i'm not anti remaking general. I don't think you know know. Movies should never be remade. But i just there's there's really there's nothing anyone can offer to the story to make a new sharp movie it doesn't have to be jaws. Just do you know do something else. Do the shallow as part two. I'll watch that. Don't do this okay. All right. i think that's a fair and level headed answer Speaking speaking of level-headed. Let's talk a little bit about the fast and furious franchise so over the past several years there has been a sort of beef. A growing beef. the sort percolating beef between vin diesel and dwayne johnson who are two of the biggest forces behind this this franchise I mean the whole thing is too complicated to even recap here but words like candy ass were thrown around on instagram. The general justified. As far as i can recall is vin. Diesels behavior on sets were described by some of taken umbrage with As sort of like a diva behavior where he would stay in his trailer for a long time. The key people waiting on sets and stuff like that And dwayne johnson in particular with somebody who Who did not take kindly to that kind of behavior on set so he called mendis. Fordham's this whole big thing. Tyree threatened to leave the franchise at one point There were several stories around. I think the fate of the furious came out twenty seventeen. That said that these guys had squashed their beef. Everything was fine. You know they'll be movies together again later on in this fast and furious franchise but with f nine coming out in theaters. I think tonight is when like it. Officially debuts men's health did a profile of diesel they serve asked him about these these little tiffs that he was having with touring johnson and he. I don't know if vin diesel knows what he's doing if he's doing this to sort of twist the knife and like purposefully reignite feud that was going on but he essentially took credit for dwayne johnson's acting performance. He said my approach at the time was a lot of tough love to assist in getting that performance. Where it needed to be referring to The hobbs characters that to join johnson place. He says as a producer to say okay. We're gonna take wayne johnson who associated with wrestling we're gonna force the cinematic world audience members to regard his character. Someone that they don't know. Hobbs hits you like a ton of bricks. That's something that. I'm proud of that aesthetic. That took a lot of work. His quote goes on there but I mean wow like. I don't really know what to say this. This just seems completely delusional behavior to me. It seems as if these is basically saying here. That like all of the Shit talking behind the scene squabbling and all of that stuff was part of like a long con on his part to coax out the correct performance. That he wanted from dwayne johnson. As a producer on this franchise. So i mean chris any thoughts on on this at all. I think embezzle is one hundred percent telling the truth and this all happened exactly the way he said. It happened Why who are we to doubt vin. Diesel he you know he would not. He wouldn't lie us. Oh he's he's clearly. This all happened and dwayne johnson. In fact probably just entire career to guts. Two of india's looks so. I hope he sends him like an edible arrangement or something to to thank him approach. I mean i i. I cannot imagine reading that if you're johnson and not being insulted or offended somebody at anybody. Really you know taking credit for your work. In that way. I mean i love the fasten franchise fast and furious franchise probably more than anybody else on the flash Staff but like. Jeez these men You could have just maybe not said anything. I don't know. I'm very curious to see if joe johnson himself is going to take the bait. Here actually respond to this as of this recording. I checked instagram. The second to see if he'd made any sort of allusions to this or whatever and he has not said anything so Looks like he's being the bigger man. But i can ask you ben as resident fast and furious expert. Do you think there's a chance that this is all for show. That vin diesel and dwayne. Johnson are both in on this. It's like a wrestling thing. Basically they're they're they're they're pretending to have a rivalry because they know it'll sites like ours. We'll be like oh shit we gotta right about this and you know there's no such thing as bad publicity anymore so i do think there's a chance you know. I think when this when this whole thing i started like to see whatever that was twenty five gs fifteen sixteen seventeen. I think i was definitely. I was like i was ninety percent convinced that it was all fake and i think there was a theory. Going around point like it was going to lead to some sort of wrestlemainia match or something where vin diesel in the rock. Got in the ring together and it was all yet. Just sort of like a A light conspiracy of all of this is just a dry publicity and stuff and considering vin diesels. You know he's he's actually like a pretty good a producer in a pretty good Grand storyteller in terms of being one of the pure creative forces behind franchising weaving together all these disparate elements and coming up with like building the mythology of a franchise that started with somebody stealing combo. Vhs and dvd players so the idea of him like taking that to a meta level and sort of extending this out into a fight that that isn't real but just drives attention is not Is not crazy to me at all. But i think it also just like real ego stuff at play here and i think that's really what's going on. I i wish it was all a publicity stunt because that would make me love this whole thing. But i really think that it's just like he. He feels a lot of ownership over. This franchise is or was really threatened by by the rock when he came in there and and really like kicked it up to the next level in fast five..

But my buddy Richie Put up a post about a funeral beat boxer. Who would do somber renditions of songs by Tool and other bands at your funeral. In a very poignant way.

How to Have a Personal Branding Mindset
"Want to start sharing a little story. Which is i am. An admitted over analytical thinker. I am you know the analysis paralysis guy. Any decision in my life in my family's life in my business i have the capability of over analyzing it to the smallest degree right. I think about every possible outcome. I do the extra research to a fault to the point of paralysis to the point of not making decisions that could benefit from being made more quickly right. Am i the only one guilty of this. I don't think so right. There's a lot of us out there that that's just our personality type. And in a lot of cases that could benefit us that could be a real advantage to having the time to think things through but there is times where action and having a push to make a decision and move in a direction is going to be the best course for individuals. So i know for me. When i get the idea that if something that i'm excited about i often berry that under trying to analyze. What's the right direction. Am i doing this right. Dwayne to think about it. Is there a step need to do first. And what i would encourage you guys to do is to figure out you know. Are there things in your life that you should be taking action on first and you can look at the risk there but just decide. Can i take a step in the direction towards something that i want today. That's going to help me tomorrow. That is really going to hurt me. If it's the wrong step because you can always go backwards for a lot of decisions that you're making out there. And i bring that up as maybe there's a framework out there for us to think about and for me. I know what. I was thinking about leaving corporate and starting a business. I have lots of plans right. Bought lots of website. Your rails i even in some cases started designing a website. And trying to word. You know what it was that i thought i could do to help people in terms of like what the business would be called and would look like and what. My services were put. It was all in my mind. And i was trying to put it out there on paper but really it was just this over agonizing thought process
Your Next Dive - Key Largo
"Last year my goal was to do a segment of your next dive where i featured key largo dive mecca here in the united states. I wanted to time this segment for just after we returned from key. Largo in april of two thousand and twenty. Well we all know how that turned out. We did not get there and again in two thousand and twenty one. We were not able to plan out an excursion as we would have hoped to. Two thousand and twenty two however is on the horizon. But i didn't wanna wait any longer to talk about key largo so here we go with your next dive where we travel to key largo florida. I think i've mentioned it before here on the podcast that my first is after getting a certification where with it's a dive located at the marriott hotel on the overland highway in key largo and it was fantastic. How about your first real dive being on a real historic wreck the city of washington a ship that was in havana harbor when the us main exploded and sank now. There are many reasons to choose key largo as your dive destination. Especially if you live in the eastern part of the united states first off. It's easy to get to. You can either fly into fort lauderdale. Which is my preferred airport. As i find it logistically navigate or miami which is a little closer to key Key largo you just hop in your rental car. That is if you can find one these days and head on down now. Let's talk a little bit about the dive. Operators in key largo as you can imagine being to dive. Mecca that it is. There are quite a number of operators to choose from it's a dive at the marriott is no longer operating but i will talk about two of the operators. I'm familiar with. They are horizon divers and rainbow reef now right after only a couple of months. After i did that first trip to key largo i returned and at that time. I drove with horizon divers back. Then they were located in marina at mile marker one hundred of the overseas highway and that was right next to the courtyard by marriott. Which at the time was a radison. It was very convenient to roll out of bed. Get a quick bite to eat and stroll over to the dive. Shot horizon has moved however and they are now located on the overseas highway at mile marker. One oh six. That's the dive shop in a retail store. Their boats are located about a half a mile up the road next to a place called shipwrecks oceanside now rainbow reef has taken over the old horizon diver facility at the mile marker one hundred marina additionally they also bought out ocean divers on the other side of the marina and have quite a large operation. Now the last time we were in key largo. We stayed at the courtyard and dove with horizon. We were going to go back to key. Largo in two thousand twenty and planned to die with rainbow reef. We didn't make it down there now. If you're looking to do more technical diving then. I think horizon divers maybe a better choice for the shallow reefs that i like rainbow reef might be a good option as they have those big forty six foot newton dive boats now. I have to admit that. I've never done the deeper wrecks down there like spiegel grove. Where the dwayne bid. But i love the shallow wrecks like the city of washington. The hanan bell. Also known as mike's wreck and especially the ben would. They are teeming with fish life and are great places to do fish identification and surveys. You can also experience of great dives on elbow reef molasses reef and french reef another great shallow dive through the book spurring grove. Karl is christ of the abyss. Dry rocks you can grit some great photo opportunities there. The water temperatures in key largo range from the mid seventies in the winter months to the mid eighties in the peak of the summer. When i dove in april of two thousand and nineteen. I was pretty comfortable on the shallow reefs with my three millimeter wetsuit. Only wanna do to morning dives. You can free up your afternoons for some topside adventures. A trip to reef headquarters Is interesting or you can take a tour of the coral restoration foundation and just down. The road is the history of diving museum in l. morada. I was really looking forward to getting to the museum last year and hope that i can make it down there next april. Talk about the dining. While if you're staying at the courtyard on the marina you don't have to get in your car and drive someplace you can just scroll stroll over skippers doc right on the marina. They have some great conch chowder. There and if you want a burger or some pub food than walk a little bit further down to dr sharpies shark bite grill. You'll probably run into some of the dive staff there hanging out now. Another great place to eat is the pilot house and that's located right near the coral restoration foundation very close by and and if you're in the mood for pizza then upper crust pizza at mile marker one zero one point six. Just make sure it's not. Wednesday is their closed. We made that mistake. So as i wrap up this segment. If you've been diving in key largo. I hope that you will agree that it is really a cool place to dive. And if you've never been there. I would encourage you to consider putting a trip there on your counter. I regret having taken fourteen years between visits. I'm not gonna make that mistake again.
Who Killed Yvonne Layne?
"April first. One thousand nine hundred nine twenty. Six year old of on lane was found with her throat. Slashed dead in her home in alliance. Ohio twenty six year old. Yvonne lane a beautiful vivacious woman rebound in a pool of her own blood. Her throat slashed. While her children's slap she was discovered by her mother who had arrived to take her six year old grandchild to kindergarten of was a mother to five kids. David thorne was the father of one of the children although he and a von. We're not together anymore. The murder of a mother of five in her own home stunt the small town of alliance ohio. David had recently been ordered to pay child support and in his confession. Joe said that he was hired by david thorne to kill von so we didn't have to pay the father of one of the children. The motive child support thorne was ordered to pay to the untrained listener. This seems like a pretty clear cut case someone confessing in a good motive but when you start digging and talking to people and going through documents the more complicated things get and it seems like everyone around. A yvonne had a motive to kill her. I i came across the case on the website injustice anywhere which has since become a staple for my research into lesser known conviction cases for my other podcast unjust unsolved. I covered an episode a week telling the stories of people who believed were wrongfully convicted. David was one of them. One of the incredible things to me about. David's case is that it actually unknown there had been other media coverage before the attack grabbed headlines as police hunt for a killer. Dwayne poelman who you just heard in. The previous clips is an investigative journalist. Who looked into the case for three years and at the center of his investigation. Very serious question. Did the system convict the wrong man. However that was over a decade ago. And there's been no movement since i said in david's episode of unjust unsolved that this case deserves its own long-form investigation nachos twenty minutes or forty minutes. So here we are.
Jazz-Grizzlies: Donovan Mitchell Upset About Missing Playoff Opener
"Mitchell thing is weird. I do think that we all kind of glossed over that but also today. Apparently he's upset that the team held him out this. Espn story is like they're gonna get dwayne wade in there to smooth it over was not expecting dwayne. Wade's named pop up this early in a playoff series and twenty twenty one. It's i i think he's going to be fine. I think the reason none of us were concerned about because the jazz at every reason to be overly cautious a with a number one seed. Why bring him back like you said during this weird regular season etc. I don't know that i'm going to going to pick the grizzlies. I think the obvious thing we can talk about from game one is will. The jazz missed that many threes again in in this series or is there something we said about. Some people never really had confidence in their shooters and said wait until the playoffs when teams are trying a little bit harder or just ignoring certain guys
Eliminating Single-Use Plastic One Household Bottle at a Time
"Episode is all about plastic. And did you know that every minute an entire garbage truck of plastic is dumped into our ocean. Today's episode is specifically about the plastic. We can team in a number of our household products such as looney liquid body. Wash and hanso now. Plastic is a product that is a lot of convenience to allies and it can be incredibly durable but so gerbil that unfortunately it can take over four hundred years for your hands at container to decompose. That's ri- n- alex. I'm just going to surprise you. Here with him have an impromptu. A positive kilometer trivia saw. How much plastic do you as an average australian new you above average the per year in plastic. Okay i'm gonna say fifty kilos fifty killed. Well why are you making a big number. But now it's actually one hundred and thirty kilograms per person per year. Do you know how much that is. It's it's about the white of the rockets every year. Consuming dwayne the rock johnson steaks. And then we're throwing him out in plastic correct. But it's worth being serious about this because you have to think of plastic this endless cycle of damage. And it's worth just rolling this off one by one. So firstly almost all plastic is actually derived from the materials ethylene propylene and from fossil fuels oil and gas so apparently about four percents of global petroleum production gets diverted to create plastic secondly to refund. It's usually energy intensive so let's add another full percent of petroleum gets used to refine it. Thirdly it's rarely recycled on the eleven percent is actually recycle. This means that the rest ends up in landfills or in poorly regulated nations at just gets incinerated beside the hate will get to this plastic landfills and that causes the emission of greenhouse gases. Then finally fought isn't recycled in landfill or incinerated. As alex said it's in our oceans so assistant into in disaster.

"I guess the other news of today and kind of completely overshadowed by of into william signing Josh dobbs quarterback is back for year number. Five with the pittsburgh steelers. What do you think of a the the readmission of josh dobbs With the black and goal. I like it. I think it really for people who want a quarterback hauling out the best news. I think i think it's more than anything. Vote of confidence in the guys they have. You wanna fourth quarterback for camp and josh dobbs in my opinion is the right kind of quarterback to push a dwayne haskins. He's not going to match. Dwayne haskins talent with the questions on dwayne haskins. Aren't does he have talent questions are you know. Where's his head in the game. What's his Level what's he like in the locker room. You know you're talking leadership and you're talking. You know the love of the game sitting in the film room watching the film breaking stuff down understanding the offense all these things. Those are josh dobbs strengths. Just odd isn't the greatest passer but he does that to the point that he's you know a guy. Ben rothlisberger likes because he can rely on him so to me. He's an insurance policy. Should dwayne haskins causing any problems and they have to get rid of. It has to cut ties with him. And he's also the kind of guy to plush dwayne haskins in the in the film room kind of be that guy who's like you know try and keep up your kid like let's go. It's it's time for you to learn this. It's time for you really. It's it's your what third season you know. You need to have this stuff down So i think josh dobbs is actually the perfect addition to push him and honestly if he sticks around. He's someone bent likes having around.
Singleness: Burden and Gift
"Join us today as we talk about singleness as well as what it means to be single and life in the church join us in having the conversations that shape us greetings tobin. Welcome to another conversation. Come listeners this amount of baptist. Podcast how you doing tobin. I'm doing good. How are you doing doing all right. It's been a tough week for for us. Say you recently lost a loved one in your family anthem. I'm mourning the loss of a friend. So you know different times during cova de wouldn't you say oh for sure. It's definitely a tough time to lose somebody during covid because you don't exactly get to see them funeral plans start looking different and there's a whole bunch of other different support. Networks are starting to look differently than they did before hand right. I was even thinking we talked about death last week. And then it kind of hits you personally so it's very interesting right. It's it's just part of our lives and when we don't think about it don't deal with it sometimes for caught unawares but yeah it's good to have to have that background and even as we are recording this we are almost at where death also plays a central role in the story and to defeat of death. Of course as well so yeah. It's very interesting. Yeah very much so. We had one of our recommendations to talk about singleness this week from a listener. Yeah it's quite the switch from death and there's quite a few ways we can take this conversation right so we'll kind of see how it unfolds. We'll see how the cookie crumbles but we could talk about singleness as an experience of individuals within the western culture right. We're probably talk about in our second half singleness as it relates to biblical values and and and culture and what the bible says there right and then we can also talk about a little bit in the beginning now about how singleness in psychology relate to one another. Yeah that's a good idea. Why don't you start us off with that Even as you're talking about it's interesting to even think about what is singleness right because singleness can be so many different things depending on how you define singleness and not being singled. So what do you think right. So single head is if we were to come up with something like a working definition here i would say. Single single hood is defined by not being in relation with another person. And i think the traditional idea of cygnus is in a romantic setting okay and you had some statistics on singleness in canada. As well which. I found fascinating i did and when i read these statistics. They're not exactly using the same definition. I am right and from what i understand. These are talking about single households so in canada. there there was an article in twenty nine thousand nine that wrote that compared to nineteen eighty six in two thousand sixteen. We had approximately double the amount of people who lived alone and so that means that we have about four million canadians across canada. Who who are single. Who who live alone and now with someone who provides that romantic so seventy percent of the four million have previously been in a relationship which would include widowed divorced or separated by any other means twenty percent of this four million are currently in a relationship with somebody but they just don't live in the same household right and then fifty percent of these individuals also have a child. Roughly speaking two million canadians live in a single parent or guardian household and are pulling triple or quadruple duty in order to support and care for the children or the dependence and simply don't have the same resources that we do with having an extra person there right fascinating. So when i asked you about the definition singleness you talked about not being in a meaningful relationship or romantic attachment to someone but then as you're giving us each statistics you already seeing a little bit of a clash with how you defined versus how perhaps canada or society defines it right because society defines this as just romantic attachment. I was just thinking about singleness before we even we even talk today and How we just assumed that you have to be part of a meaningful. You have to report a meaningful romantic relationship or attachment in order to not be single whether that's married or living with somebody or at least being boyfriend girlfriend whatever we wanna do whatever we want to call it but the experience of singleness goes beyond just that right. I mean The i was reading some articles about this author deborah hirsch. She's a christian author. She's a little bit out there because she talks about sexuality but she talks about homosexuality is not just a sexual expression within a sexual relationships ship between two bodies but that sexuality transcends also into every relationship we have because we we can't just separate parts of our being. We can't just say this part of me sexual in this. Part of me is relational. And this part of me is spiritual we are one hole and so it transcends. I heard a talk by her. And so she talked about what that means for single people and and celebrate people people who choose to be celebrate in that setting. And that doesn't mean that these people don't need community or meaningful relationships of attachment even if they're not romantic attachments over shirt and i like that idea of the embodied whole as you can't we can't segment like like you said sexual the the spiritual whatever that it all comes together as one person right that being said there are individuals out there who would find they can be in a non sexual relationship. That'd be classically to find a single but aren't troubled by that Right so you're looking at the asexual community where relationships with out that sexual component still fulfilling and meaningful right right and the flip side to that is you have people who have this meaningful community. Who who have lots of deep meaningful attachments to other people but are longing for would consider themselves being single and lonely and longing for a deeper expression for deeper romantic and sexual attachment to someone exactly while there are some that. Do not need that romantic or other person attachment to the same level. There's other people that crave and need it and desire so talk to me a little bit about what that means in terms of how how you live life and how you engage life as a single person. Well okay so growing up in canada as this as a single person who is wanting a relationship and can't find it what is what is that. Psychologically like and i would i have. I think i have a few friends who would fit this category and i just from conversations with them it's not a enjoyable experience Even in my own past bake as someone who from eighteen onwards wanted to have like girlfriends and wanted to be in those in in in relationships with other beings who felt that long. I've had a taste of how powerful that loneliness and that drive four relationship can be right and then there's a certain amount of feeling of rejection and isolation loneliness from not having that being fulfilled so as you're talking my question comes up. What's the. I am trying to word this but where maybe i'm using the wrong words but where does longing turned into obsession or or need so so what i mean by that is can you have that long. Can you desire something and still be content. With present circumstances. I mean that comes down to how you define contentment I would say that if contentment means you're all right with the circumstance. Then no because you still desire that relationship okay We talked quite a number of episodes back about the dark night of the soul right about longing for something how You desire of reality of presence to be with in in my circumstance was to be with god and how reality circumvents that there then becomes a conflict between what is felt. And what is known. That being said you've already touched on this with the obsession component right but then there is also that danger of it becoming an obsession of turning that pain right into something negative such as is found in some communities such as the involuntary salvator the in self community online right and then what you find in those communities is that a lot of this pain and turmoil gets turned outwards against other communities where they start blaming other people and other things for their own loneliness and rejection and in doing so their reactions become a negative coping mechanism an unhealthy behavior to try and alleviate the discomfort or rationalize it so then that goes back to my original question so because because my worry is that that we're kind of setting up a binary in the sense that i want to be in a more committed relationship of one sort or another. Let's call it romantic for for better for lack of a better word. So i want to be under romantic relationship. I'm either in the stage of wanting that and the more i wanted to do the closer i get to it being an obsession in my life or i get it and then i'm fine but there is no room to to to live a. Is there no room then to live a life. That says hey i would really desire this but i will also be content. Happy with where i am right now and and live into that to the fullest. And that's that's tricky because we don't have a lot of social narratives that kind of give us that framework to experience singleness in a healthy way. So if i were to break that down a little bit when we watch movies in rome these romantic movies and stuff. It gives us a lot of even you even say it's either healthier unhealthy. That's not me to judge right now but it still gives you those narratives to kind of go and say oh. This is what it's like to be in relationship. This is how i can experience relationship and and dating and being with another person. We don't have movies about what it's like to be alone at least not popularly right right or if they are they're fairly depressing right. There fairly depressing. It's all about not being in that relationship and own. Maybe i'll get into that relationship. There's the whole trope in the late. Two thousands of the manic pixie dream girl where it's all about these writers hollywood writers that use women and relationships to give men character growth in arcs in the movie right so it's all about being relationship pure like it's not about the expression of singleness as healthy in itself. It's about relationship as fixing your problems so that not then create problematic relationships as well. In the sense that i'm finding all my fulfillment than in that relationship once. I do find a relationship where i where i haven't grown as a person or don't have enough emotional intelligence to be content with the person that i am because the person that i was always looking for someone else to to complete me exactly. It creates problems both in relationships expectations for relationships and for people who also want to enter relationships. Right and even individually it creates a learning process or provides an opportunity for a healthy learning environment. Where you start to empathize with your partner where you can put yourself. In their shoes and learn that your flaws also have to be negotiated with their flaws and that there's a balancing act and interpersonal dynamics. Come in and i mean that turns even so now. We're talking about dating but that that that's the same thing with with friendships as well right. If you're i can see a scenario. I've seen lots of scenarios where where you're not content. You're not necessarily content with who you are and so you're you're expecting a lot of out of that friendship relationship for your happiness for your contentment even for your self esteem for the way you Assess your own value that kind of stuff And that can even come out in familiar. Familial relationships as well right where you depend. It's about on another to define who you are and to give you that esteem right and so i mean maybe we're getting off track but that's kind of what singleness conversations are in the sense. Is that the healthiest relationships in our lives are are where we have Some sort of independence isn't it. Yeah yeah independence crates freedom. Authenticity for who you are. In relation to the overall relationship that being said we also live in a society that needs us to be in relationship so to further expand on this point there is there has been studies. I was just scrolling passively I love read it i. I'm on it all day while just pathway scrolling on read it and they were talking about how people live longer when they're in hell in healthy relationships. Oh interesting and lots of articles in the medical community about how people who come in with their partners rent have better treatment results and partly to have somebody to talk to and somebody else to gather information. Yeah whatever the reason is another person there right even just as a tax bonus is is beneficial. So we have. We live in a society that set up for couples and yet the dangerous. become too codependent. And while there's this whole codependence piece talked about but then how as a single person do you live right right so if your approach this as as a single person you see the i live in a society that needs couples that needs you know somebody to stay home and clean the house or look after the kids while somebody else needs to go work. How do i be both people. Yeah or even attach detaches. I think in our society we attach maturity to to relationships as well right so a part of adulting is to be in a meaningful relationship. I always found that whole areas adulting if being an adult but somehow of verb but anyways You know like you are considered writes so you are considered to be a more mature adults in comparison to other people your age if you're in a meaningful relationship and on top of that if you do certain things if you have a certain job if you have a house and if you have kids right over sure i even feel that in school like what. I'm twenty five now. But because i'm married all of a sudden that puts me in a whole nother brand right of society all of a sudden i'm more mature i'm responsible and i'm sure if i had kids out even put me in another bracket above 'cause now i'm looking after little right little little children but as as we're talking i'm just wondering if we wouldn't have a healthier society if we we would learn what it looks like to live healthily in singleness for a time of our lives even just a how we talk about singleness it would be helpful for the individuals who are signal Because we are seeing a rise in people who live alone or who aren't conventionally married or unconventionally being with somebody else and just to harry healthier narratives for them to us and to understand themselves and even understand ourselves with. Kate will greatly benefit us as a community as a as a broad social community as christians and canadian. A do well. Let's transition a bit into the bible here. where So where have if. I'm a single person. And i wanted and i'm and i'm just lonely as all can be. Have you found that. Most people find their strength. I think were most people go in terms of the bible. At least we can talk about how we talk about church. How about single isn't church. And how we treat single people insertion. That's a separate thing from how the bible talks about singleness. I mean jewish culture. Very much thought that you had be married that that's just you know that that's the purpose of your life is to be married if you're mad at your purposes to have a have a wife so that your wife can have children and and your family line keeps going and if you if you were a woman you know your goal was that for your family to find to find the man or family who would take you i mean as a patriarchal society is but there is no. I don't know if there's a real allowance The only time there is conversation is about widows right and how you treat widows and so in that sense. The old testament is much more progressive than the surrounding cultures of its time and makes allowance for widows and treats them well and in that sense even relationships are still political. Yeah in that. It's not about so much being with somebody else. As it is a way to further your lineage as a way to get some gain right and not saying that there isn't a component. Alright love between why. Perhaps there is some counter cultural stories even embedded within the old testament to see the story of of ruth and her mother-in-law. Ruth naomi. i mean ruth's story restoring does end in marriage but it's very much naomi who makes it happen and they owe me you know. She kind of becomes a mother kind of surrogate mother to son that ruth bears. I mean that's how the story ends in the bible. Were supposed to see that image. Even though she's not married so it's a fairly counter cultural story there is rahab the prostitute who becomes part of israel. There's the story of tamar who forces kind of what we would call a constitutional crisis. It's not a constitutional crisis but it's a crisis of the law for for for one for for one of the for one of the men that was supposed to marry her. Her father in law's supposed to marry her according to the law because her husband has passed away but he refuses and so eventually she she forces her way into this. There's the story of astor who who kind of becomes part of this abusive kings. Well she's the she becomes the queen to disabuse of king and rescue the people of israel. I think all of those are somewhat counter cultural in the sense that that they're describing to us non normative relationships within that paradigm but also some of these women become not all of them that i mentioned but some of them are part of the story of jesus right so matthew mentions for women in the genealogy of jesus and even though clearly there had to be men for those four women to have borne children has not the men that are identified. It's the women that are identified. And so it already kind of focuses more on the person under relationship that that they were in jesus himself never married according to the gospels. All of a sudden you have these single people doing things right. i mean we. We don't we don't know of mary. Martha lazarus or married. We never find out. They are just people right. The assumption probably is that they would be. But but even when lazarus dies. we don't hear about his wife morning right. We we hear about his sisters. Mary magdalene she married. We don't know right. I mean you go down the list of all these characters and somehow we don't often find out about their familial relationships and isn't there a passage in there somewhere about how it it in summary. It's like get married if you want to. But you know your your relationship with the lord is i and you gotta serve that primary. I corinthians that where it is. I post writing. Yeah i mean. Paul paul is also single. There's a hint there. in first. Corinthians read the passage wrongly sometimes. But there's a hint there. In first corinthians step maybe at one point paul was married and he considers himself a widower. I've never heard preached in church but there is a hint there because he's talking to the widows and widowers and he's co counseling them to stay single and he says be as i am so he identifies himself with them. He doesn't leader. He talks to to what he calls the virgins which would be the single people who are potentially also engaged to be married which is different than the widows widowers and so there he doesn't say as i am because he's not. He doesn't see himself like that. He sees himself like a widower. So but in that passage. Basically what paul is saying. Yeah Marriage is a good thing and if you want to be married be married and if you don't wanna be married you have a gift to bring to the conversation as well and the way the we paul seasons in that conversation is gift that single people bring is is an attachment to church and into the work of god. I mean this comes out of paul of paul paul's idea anyways is that jesus coming back soon. You know. And so he saying why. Why waste your time getting married. We have so much stuff to do. Let's go get working and proclaiming. Jesus christ but that's the gift that single people that that's the gift that he sees himself bringing to the church as well right. I'm single so i can go and serve god and i can go and proclaim and so So he very much kind of trying to tell people. Stay in whatever situation you are. Don't get divorced if you're married. Stay married and have sex. He literally. I mean literally what he says. Don't don't all of a sudden now because you think that you're that you're christian. Stop having sex. If you're in a marriage you know. There's no you're not holier if you're in a celebrate marriage with somebody then if you're in a sexual relationship with somebody and so That's kind of his frame of mind right and so what. I take that passage. Don't i think what we should take a passage is that there's legitimate calling and gift to singleness within our congregations and we haven't really acknowledged that ever or very rarely and as as you're talking here. This is reminding me of a story that. I read quite quite a quite a few years ago when i was taking a family and marriage class. I believe that was the course. I was in for this. Where was talking about An evangelical preacher who was off doing missionary work off off in the boonies somewhere and then his daughter right was or his family was having trouble and distress and their daughter. I think even commit suicide over his lack of involvement. Yeah this is a story that i read in a book called sweet surrender by dennis hiebert and the question raised is what becomes more important family or missionary work right well. My critique on this was that he shouldn't this this preacher guys should not have even gotten married in the first place if he couldn't have committed to the relationship as a whole right right. And you know. I i mean before we talk. Today i went and reread some of this stuff. And i corinthians seven and you you can go and read yourself there paul saying that. If you're married you are committing to that relationship and you need to give it a significant amount of energy. That is your calling by god within marriage so you you know the the the calling that god puts on you cannot supersede that calling that god has put on you for that marriage. Because you're asked to be in this relationship of mutual self giving love so you have to kind of buy into that but if you don't need to be in a relationship like that then you can give some of that energy to the work at hand or two one way to one way to to translate it. There has to present necessities. Paul says And so that's that's how paul would put would address it. I don't think paul would understand. I don't think. Paul understand our fascination with saying hey To be to be a good human. I need to be part of a relationship. I need to be in a marriage any to have kids. And then i'm going to dedicate all my energy to my work or to my church. You know for pastors or or to this and ev- this relationship that i've committed to is going to take second place to another relationship i've inserted into it and then using jesus own words to kind of To support that is weird. I don't think paul would ever do that exactly. And i think we put this pressure on missionary work that It becomes the one and only calling for a christian to be part of god's works in the world. Yeah and what. Paul is trying to say i think is hey. If you're single now you can do mission or missionary work. You're not attached to the work of your marriage covenant relationship so why not not stay the way you are. He's trying to tell these people in corinthians why not stay the way you are and do missions work. If that's what you feel like god is calling you to see in our mind. We have turned completely around. We often how we are. We have such distrust of single people especially single men that we say. Hey no-no before you can do ministry worker before you can do missionary work and this is very much agenda conversation because it's not the other way around. We don't distress single women we asked him. and then. So that's an noticing this even as we speak right here. I've been hesitant to talk about this call. That paul has and says. Hey you're single and you can work for the church because to me. It sounds abusive. Make single women do often. We send them out to be missionaries. We asked him to serve. You don't have children. you can do this right. We don't do the same thing for single men or very scared of single men and if want men to do any kind of ministry. We want men to be married and have children because that safety as so. That's that's even the gender dwayne which we approach singleness right. And i think you're in a very unique position at thirty to even speak about that because of your work now with Generation rising coming up and with your older work at in out of town or you did that sort of abroad. Work right where you've seen students and individuals who either as a couple or who are dating or who are single going off and doing this work in in in africa or or wherever you sent them thinking of even thinking about who hires churches in terms of pastors right. It's okay for youth pastor. It's okay for a youth pastor to be single sometimes right because they're young Oftentimes if men right they're young. That's alright we prefer a single woman or a married woman to our children's ministry because they're just more approachable to children. Once you're past you get into a more. An associate pastor position or a lead pastor position. We really want that pastor to be married whether they're a woman or a man we really would like them to be in a committed relationship because that to us is the highest ideal. The highest value within the congregation. Right i mean. I don't think i've been to a church where we've had a single lead pastor. I have. I have not attended a church like that anyways. No i'm trying to think. I don't think i've ever had lead pastor as a single person. i've had associate pastors. Who were then in a divorce relationship or in a separate relationship right and that could be a whole nother podcasts. But yeah yeah. And i can't speak to their experiences. No no but within at least within the evangelical world that i've grown up in yet it's marriage seems to be this high ideal and so any time we talk about singleness and we talk about singleness even as a calling or as an opportunity We tend to think in our minds we tend to think about singleness calling opportunity for women not so much for men and we also tend to not put enough support around single people So we're tend to not give them the same community and while we say. Hey we value your singleness and if that's what god calls you to. Do we want to embrace that and you you can. You have something to give to us. We still want to celebrate mother's day and church and get frustrated when we celebrate we. Don't we still want to celebrate. Father stay in church and get frustrated when we don't and I can just. I mean i make a point of saying something to that effect every mothers and fathers day and i can just hear the roles you know i know the is aren't actually rolling but i can just hear that there's that pressure on you with the congress within the congregations like there there goes rafael again. Trying to be all politically correct not politically correct. It's an acknowledgment that our humanity is not just defined by our roles as fathers and mothers in within that attached relationship And committed relationship of of of marriage. I mean are not the only vision for for humanity not even in the bible. You know i mean. Let's talk about men. That aren't that that we wouldn't consider being fully men. I mean there's daniel and his three friends there most likely unix. Because that's what would happen in the bible. Once they were once they were taken as prisoners in palace. We have a whole book stories that we love to tell our kids about daniel right and we talk about the end times. We love to go to daniel and talk about you know that kind of stuff. There's there's a whole church in ethiopia that today still claims and traces their lineage. Back to a conversation with an ethiopian eunuch on-road from jerusalem Who's who has converted and baptized than an the ep ethiopian. Church still says. That's where we come from because he goes back right but somehow we've said that the highest ideal value is marriage is is being committed marriage with two children and suburban suburban right. Right right. I mean even within our culture. We do not have father's day and mother's day and a far saying on mother's day or a single people's they right we just don't either and so i would say for maybe the if we were to sum everything up that there's a really deep call. Or there's a really deep spirituality to being single and that there is special and it's needed and it's not any worse of a calling that being said we also need to adjust start cultural narratives and what we say in how we talk. And how he fee with people that needs to shift so that they can also feel that calling especially this has been another episode of the modern anna baptist. Please join the conversation by emailing us. At conversations that shape us gmail.com or joining us on twitter at modern anna baptist. Either way we'd love to hear from you and grow with you and continue to have fantastic conversations.

"dwayne" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"Of this. I'm going to avoid his just be repetitive. Bass in the conversation that bought that. We've already had but i will mention it without getting into into great detail The list of things that i liked starts with chase young I think he is wrapped up the defensive rookie of the year He accounted for for two turnovers yesterday. He had multiple. I think four tackles a sack. Had multiple quarterback hurries deflected a pass or to Forced fumble forced interception fumble recovery the dudes absolute beast chase young my love. I loved antonio gibson in this his return he was healthy. I'm continually. I don't maybe i shouldn't have been surprised. I guess i just got hung up on memphis wide receivers slash running backs being super fast but not so powerful goddess he powerful He had nine carries for sixty seven yards in the first half. He had one carry for minus six yards in the second. I'll get to this in more detail. On the list of things i play. Yeah but i loved antonio gibson in his return and really makes me think that with that kind of production from him and by the way there's a lot of yards after contact with him The pa the pile moves forward with him I think that they're there with really good defense. And you know an offensive model that maybe changes a little bit. If the quarterback isn't you know capable whether that's alex heineke Got gibson's returned was huge. I thought ronald darby and kendall fuller in this game. Were both very good. You and i have talked about kendall fuller sniffing out bubbles and screens better than any player like going back to his first two years here before he got traded in the alex smith trade to kansas city. He really anticipates so well And i think i had a couple of games. You know where we've been like whoa but in this day and age in the nfl. There's no corner that's going to be perfect. There's no corner that's gonna play a game. It's like one hundred percent clean. It's almost impossible in this day and age. I think darby was a hell of addition and i think he played really well yesterday. I think he's played well. I thought fuller was outstanding yesterday. also all right The list of things it. By the way. I think drawn pain had moments yesterday. I think jon allen had moments yesterday. I think montana's sweat had moment yesterday. Thought co holcomb had some moments yesterday. But it's hard for me to really sit there and go through a list of d defensive stalwarts during the game and they were better in the second half. there's no doubt about it and the defense certainly didn't cost you the game But they gave up too many yards on the ground. They gave up too many yards. Downfield you know there were big plays in this game. There was a forty five yard run. There was a forty four yard. Catch both by By curtis samuel And you know and they were missing their starting left tackle and backup left. Tackle in this game Anyway that's the list of things that i liked the list of things that i didn't like Look dwayne sucked. There's no other way to describe it. Her his first half was about as bad as it gets in the. Nfl it's interesting. We've had two halves by quarterbacks this year for this team the alex smith Second half against the rams and the dwayne haskins first-half yesterday that are about bad of halves as nfl. Quarterbacks can produce thirty six yards passing Two interceptions a fumble He was utterly unprepared. And i thought Completely overwhelmed by the week and the magnitude of the game is accuracy was off with the first threw it behind logan thomas. He throw a ball to antonio gibson on a little. You know Almost check down plan check down. That missed by eight feet. It was just horrible The fourth in two of the second drive of the second half was the play that got him. Benched cam sims is sitting there you know. Hey there's nobody within eight yards of me dude. This is an easy high school level pitching. Catch move the chains. And you know it's twenty to six at that point you moved to there even if you get feel still the third quarter and he completely panics. Flushes left get sacked and even when he scrambling their sims alot and he just keep. That was the place carried a simple spacing concept it. There's that was the play that was the play were scott turner who said to rivera's ear. Get him the hell out of the game. He cannot see. I tweeted at right after that play. I said that may be it for him and it was and when i say it i mean it's over For him you know. I thought that the play that he made where he's scrambling around and he throws back to cam sims and it's a fifty yard play was i mean it was a good play and i was hoping it would spark them and by the way you know when should he been benched should have been. Hindsight been benched at halftime rivera said after the game. You definitely have to hindsight showed tuesday. Okay okay that's realized site game hindsight halftime but what rivera said. I actually don't have a problem with his explanation. Which was in it sort of dovetails with you about how he sort of figures it out as the game goes and that's what we've seen from him including going back to the opener against philadelphia including against cleveland in the second half. You know that that eventually he kinda gets their Because he's unprepared to start and then maybe he starts to figure it out. And i think that rivera was probably thinking if i can get his second half from last week we get it. We have a chance so anyway He was god awful. It was hit at six feet. Four inches tall had to hit two or three balls deflected by the way derrick brown who i loved in that draft last year from auburn. He is turning into a monster I i think. I said to you that obviously chase young. But if they were to trade back and they picked up two picks. In i want the quarterback and derrick brown he started off very slowly but he is turning into a dominant player. Watch derrick brown. Come on a lot of people thought chase young started slowly. Yes statistically statistically turnovers obviously you're on the list of things. I didn't like you can't turn it over four times and a half and win the nfl Steven sims junior. Set the tone for this football game with muffed punt. The turned into a touchdown. There is zero chance. I would have him back on punt returns in the game against philadelphia in fact if if my receiver core is healthy. I would probably deactivate him for the game. He has the of the yips right now. He is lacking in confidence on punt returns even when he makes a catch it. Looks a little sketchy He will cost you a playoff spot. If you put him back there in punt returns i don't know if isaiah right is that much better But simms is a fumble or dropped pass waiting to happen one of the biggest disappointments of the year. He is a net negative to this team right now on the list of things. I didn't like a as i mentioned to you before. I just don't know how you give ninety one first-half rushing yards five point four yards per carry and give up a ten play. Eighty yard drive all runs and think that the defense was good enough in the first half. I didn't think it was I thought it was better in the second half. But i also think to a certain degree carolina figured they had enough points and that the only way to ruin that was to let chase young. Ruin the game which he nearly did you know With the turnover forces in the second. half I think their run defense in in many ways now as a bit of their achilles heel We'll see As the season goes beyond next week But it's my biggest defensive concern and then as it relates to scott turner. The bottom line is they came out in the second half after a. I will concede this point. The scores twenty two three and carolina's opened up the second half with an eight minute. Drive a defense that you said was so great in the second half eight minutes. Thirteen place. forty five yards. The clock is now winding down in the third quarter..
"dwayne" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"I actually enjoy doing as a person i know you said he was a nice kid as kid and no some of those things that we're starting to see. Now all i see is play on the field but you could see play on the field. Diminishing certain games at ohio state. Things weren't going well. Yeah michigan's michigan state. The penn state game. Yeah so that You know it's. I'm glad you brought this up. Now we're gonna get to the you know your let me let me say something. Let me say a thing. Let me say my thing. Just let me say about my same thing. We're getting we. But i. But i wanna i wanna get to this because this is really this is the most important takeaway from all this. The owner has single-handedly wreck this franchise. for twenty one years and even though we both know and others out there knowing some aren't sure that he took a big step back you know over. The last decade with bruce in the organization may be taking a big step back with ron in the organization. Now the bottom line is is that he intruded enough to fuck things up. You know whether it was. Rg three or whether it was undrafted night. Twenty nineteen when he wanted to pick a guy against the judgment of his football people because that guy went to his sons highschool. Nobody in the mcnabb in mike shanahan here. Nobody in the room wanted dwayne haskins at that spot. Except for snyder haskins look he came into an impossible situation which wasn't his fault and was unfortunate. There's no doubt about that but what made it. Even more difficult is that he wasn't built to overcome it. He wasn't mature. He lacks self awareness. He doesn't have the kind of work ethic necessary to grow from a guy who's got talent and but only played one college season at ohio state. And what bothered the football people with some of that stuff. And that's the stuff that the dumdum owner never considers. Because and i mentioned this on radio he's got a jock sniffing brain that sees a star. And maybe even a new buddy at twenty one years old. I mean this guy is a total hack of an owner. You know the kid had talent. But he's a toddler and lacked any cooley. Any of the positive intangibles that are needed to overcome a situation. That was difficult to begin with. You know it started with the league done. Messed up the draft night party charging people forty bucks to get in this cell fees when he should have been on the end On the field at the end of the detroit game the thing that you know drives me crazy. The taking of men's protected number seven when the owner basically put it back on joe. Disgracefully what a fucking disgrace to put it back on joe in put him into that situation of having to say no. Joe wouldn't do that and he was put into a no win situation. The owner knew it the owners child and he wanted dwayne a child to get what he wanted which was joe's number seven and he got it. You know jason lockenfora pre pre sunday one o'clock games story yesterday on. Cbs sports dot com. Basically said haskins is out but he also implied in that story. That ron didn't like him to begin with you know. He said that ron was not optimistic about dwayne when he got here and that was my position when he benched him after four games. It was like look. This was totally unnecessary. You knew it when you put him out there you know who cares what people dopes. like me. one to see dwayne for sixteen. You didn't think he had it and yet he was out there for the first four. Why will i think we know the answer. The owner said a chance. You're gonna love him. And you know rivera was not very optimistic about it. So it was. It was a sham to begin with and he had to come back to him because of injuries. Because his preferred quarterbacks kyle allen and alex smith got hurt. Well he's not coming back to them again and he's got understand rivera. Does that the root cause of the problem that he inherited is mr snider as he refers to him. Mr snider fucks everything up and has for twenty one years. The god help us with whatever's going on with the minority owners and the league investigation could god. Do we need a new owner. It's our only savior. I'm going to read this. Because i saved this from berries ver- lucas column from the other day. Because i thought it was such an apropos line. I thought he he nailed it here. He was writing. Not about the team. Or dwayne but about this situation involving the minority owners in this story in the post last week revealing that he had this encounter on his private plane. Coming back from las vegas berry. Wrote what a franchise when you root for sports teams whether it's by birth or by choice you bring a desire for everyone involved. The players the coaches even the owner to be upstanding hardworking trustworthy people. Maybe that's unreasonable. It certainly unrealistic. But with snyder in charge fans of the washington. Football team can never fully embrace the organization as a whole because the leadership is so ruinous and something always lurks around the corner. That's what we're dealing with here. And it's so much fun to live in the moment and dissect these games and talk about the games and should they have gone for the fourth and two or should have started. You know t taylor heineke instead but what lurks around the corner is this ruinous owner. That will that fucked up. The best of resume coaches that have been here. And it's what you know. Tommy always says the aura of dysfunction. It will never be a radical until he's out is owner. It's not gonna stop us from talking about these games and analyzing these games and having you know a fun time but we have to recognize that. Ron rivera i think is a good man and a good coach but why tommy believes that and i don't believe this. I do not believe that. Dan basically told. Ron can't cut dwayne last week. I think ron legitimately thought we got a chance to win this game. I can cut him when the season's over but i'm going to. I'm going to exert some pragmatic patients here and give ourselves in the other fifty two players in this locker room a chance to get to the postseason and he thought dwayne gave the best chance this week. If alex couldn't play and you know But but whatever the point is that all of this goes back to the owner and what he did on draft night twenty nineteen and what he did with mcnabb and what he did with. Rg three and what he always. Does he screws it all up and as long as he's lurking around the corner. I don't know if this franchise will ever ever sort of get to the point where we can consider them to be a winner. I just don't think it'll ever happen now. You know they can win on sunday night and be in the playoffs. you know. that's the that's the update for those of you. Unfamiliar with what the situation is. It's really simple if they beat philly. They're in period. If they lose they're out in the winner of the giants cowboys game is in the game for those of you that didn't know or don't know has been flex to the sunday. Night season finale. They've played in that the you know they played in two thousand twelve at the end of the year. You're in in that game or you certainly in the stadium on the night that the that you guys beat the cowboys. Twenty eight to eighteen alfred. Morris rushed for two hundred yards. That was the sunday. Night season finale. This game gets flexed will know you know going into that game what we know tonight. Which is when you're in luger out I think personally you know. I did not think they were going to be carolina..

"Me season and most of that was a horrendous outing from dwayne haskins and pretty much barring the absolute unforeseen in terms of injuries this week his last appearance in a washington. Uniform coolies here. I'm here. It's the monday after the carolina loss. Podcast happy holidays to everybody in early. Happy new year hopefully had a great christmas. How was your christmas cooley. With all the all the kids in out wyoming. Did you have a white christmas. Did it's out. There had a beautiful christmas forty five degrees yesterday fishing. Well that wasn't christmas yesterday. What was christmas. Eve and chris lewis. Christmas was the same. It was forty degrees awesome. Yeah it was nice. It's been nice here good how was it seriously. I mean it can be hectic with two. I mean seriously is it's amazing but it's also hectic at the same time we actually joked about having did ten days at christmas or almost. A hanukkah type unwrapping twelve days. Because you just i. It's a day of spent putting together and teaching how to use toys and going through things but it was fun. Hanukkah would be eight days Christmas the twelve days would be we were talking doing. eight days. Is cristiano sick days. Christmas version of it. I guess is what i'm saying Well i'm glad it went well. Did you put together any big things like You know is. It was a dad working late into the christmas eve early christmas morning hours working on putting together a train. Set for your son. Did you have anything you had to put together now. No train sets. We had to figure out what are those scooters that kids drive around on. They stand on the razor scooters. Yeah now they're not razor. Scooter said the segues segue for my daughter. She's amazing didn't even write it and she can ride but she's great and an hour they look kinda fun but then there's a car that touches to the segue to so we had to figure out the car and the thing little sign actually botched it. Because you have a sidecar that hooked segue to but we bought those on prime day which is october and we didn't know that the segue card in come with actual wills and a motor so santa forgot because that was santa's presence forgot they needed to segue cars the segues fucking expensive. It's like six hundred bucks for or eight hundred bucks for that segue piece that runs right so all right. I don't know we'll see it was good. It was christmas it was fun. Yeah ours was fine. I mean i have older people in the home. There were a lot of gifts. It seemed to go on forever There's not this intense desire to open up everything in five minutes. There is now when you have older people in the home this desire to sorta it play out and enjoy it and have it lasts for. I love that love it. Keira thoughtful thoughtful gift. But it was. But i i can't sit there for you know it's like i i when we go to the beach i can't sit on the beach for more than a couple more than an hour. I gotta i gotta be doing something. So i got up and i started to make breakfast and then when that when that was over and gifts were still being opened up. I said what about lunch. I can make some lunch I just wanted to do something other than just sit there and relax which should be one of the things that we enjoy doing But anyway i hope everybody had a great holiday. And i'm glad you guys did as well. Let's get to this game You know many disagreed with me. And i think you on ron rivera's decision to lightly punish haskins last week And wanted him released to her. You know they wanted him benched. I was okay. I just essentially said i'll defer to ron rivera. Heroes his team he knows what taylor heineke and the other guy are and and you know there can be some pragmatic patients. The culture statement doesn't have to come today it can come in a month That's my feeling that's my feeling today. But with respect to duane being ready to play this game for those of you that said you know. I don't want him to play. He should be benched. Ca basin a culture statement. Or even if you had gone a step further and said and some of you did after being after the week. He's had how well is he gonna play anyway. Will you were right He was clearly impacted by the week. That was He looked godawful. He looked Unprepared he looked unwilling. He almost looked cooley to me disinterested and almost a guy that wished he had been disciplined harder so that he didn't have to play in this game. That was a god awful performance and his last one in washington uniform. Unless somehow taylor heineke comes down with covid and alex can't play I think that that last fourth in to sack were cam. Sims was sitting there wide open with a sign. That said i'm wide open. I'm right here. I think that that was the one that really got to to rivera and to scott turner and said we've seen enough and i think that was the last play of dwayne haskins in washington uniform. That was just so bad. That was so bad from top to bottom. I don't know if i agree with the punishment on haskins. I hadn't remember when united done the last podcast. The punishment had been doled out yet. We knew that it was going to come later on that day. I did think maybe if it was your best option to win a game then. You should play dwayne. So i guess to some extent i do agree. Forty thousand dollars is not very much of a fine for what seems to be conduct. Detrimental right here came. Only thousand dollars is week. Stripped of captaincy probably bothers him. But again i don't know how much you can find him for that. The nfl's probably going to find him as well that said defer to run rivera. You gotta know your guys. You gotta know your team. Best wing based off his performance last week were both you and high-grade him as a be and i thought he played pretty well although i do think he felt his way through that game. He may think he's giving you the best chance to win but also knowing that there's some mental there's a there to him maybe it's not the best situation for him to pray. Heineke my problem k. Let's he should've played heineke way earlier. When should he bench swing. Dwayne was plane. I think after that second pick even though he was trying to force the ball down the field to make a play that's when he should have been done because he was forcing the ball into something that he did not see it. All both its picks were. He was stuck on one. Read and one dude. And if that wasn't it he was done. He.

Why do you feel that way? Absolutely. I I'd say the the initial. Experience I had with with you and your organization was through the book pureplays devotional. Twenty twelve was the first time. I was looking for something to equip to encourage. And just to educate my team and and something we can do together. Because there's not much you could do together and so in this we. We purchase I. Think About fifteen books. And started doing a weekly devotional on a Friday night and I we. From, that time on everything came back to pure praise. You know, remember when it said this in the book and remember when and our team grew so much together and then also theologically. And definitely in purpose envision together, and so that was the initial initial experience in than I was at a conference in Florida that I took my team to every year, and I was standing in line waiting to see mark. Hall and in front of me was Dwayne more and I remembered everybody looking at mark. Hall and I was like. Are you doing more? Tonight my team through your book and you were so embarrassed.

"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.

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.

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.

"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.
"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.
"dwayne" Discussed on The Heart of Worship Podcast with Dwayne Moore
"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. Sir The podcast man by the time give awesome. Thanks GUYS.

"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.
"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 on 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 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 talking 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.
