A highlight from The Evangelist and the Church
"At the In your outline at the top of the outline that I will read when we get there I'm going to intersperse those throughout the message those verses and in a couple other ones Christ Bible Church has been involved with over these many years that we've been in existence quite a few evangelistic opportunities in In the corporate life of the church Very early on we were involved with the Bay Area Rescue Mission going there. We still are We have had individuals who have gone street preaching Prior to the pandemic for almost 20 years we were involved with two prisons State prisons San Quentin and Jamestown prison where a couple times a month Several of us would go later once a month, but but always there for almost 20 years I see several people who helped at the Chinese New Year's Parade where we went there to hand out tracks had quite a big turnout to hand out tracks there the gospel fest of course our brother Gerard who in addition to street preaching goes over to Cal Berkeley on a regular basis of several times a week and Today we have it turns out we have another evangelistic opportunity that we're going to talk about in the subsequent business meeting and The message is really tailored to that Issue and so the message is going to kind of be narrowly focused on the idea of evangelism Obviously, there's much to say about evangelism, but I'm going to be very Narrowly focused and you can see from your outline in the bulletin That we have two points. We're going to talk about the role of the evangelist in the life of the church and then we're going to talk about the church or the role of the church in the life of the evangelist and Though the message is quite maybe narrowly focused it it has Application I believe to all of us not just to what we want to talk about at the meeting So in the first place this morning We're going to look at these four a sub points as we think about the role of the evangelist in the life of the church We're going to talk about the existence of this role or the stated role secondly the need Thirdly the example of Philip the evangelist and as we trace through the life of Philip the evangelist, we're going to see several characteristics or traits about this evangelist What makes an evangelist what do they do? How do they act? What do they think and Then fourthly under this point. We're going to look at some precepts For evangelism that we're gonna gonna kind of broaden our thinking a little bit about this and then secondly and more briefly We'll talk about the role of the church in the life of the evangelist first of all the role of the evangelist in the life of the church Before we talk about a very specific Spiritual gift or calling or role We acknowledge that the whole idea of evangelism is really broadly stated especially in the New Testament actually Throughout the Bible but but especially in the New Testament If we were to try to come up with a very simple definition of what an evangelist is We would say it is simply someone who brings the good tidings of the gospel The good news of the gospel glad tidings of salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ They're a messenger with the good news of the gospel One of my favorite verses That illustrates this definition is in Luke chapter 2 where those angels appeared to the shepherds by night Remember those shepherds were very fearful and the angel said simply this fear not Behold I bring you good tidings That word in the original is almost identical to the word evangelist.

They went and did his thing and kept and became cam and we were its soldiers. 4 million strong fighting for America's freedoms even though we remained America slave this country the descendants of slaves continued to build deep slaves built this country and we the descendants of slaves in America have earned reparations for their self and continue to earn reparations every moment we spent submerged in the systemic prejudice racism and white supremacy that America was founded with and still has not its own thoughts.

"How do you know how much is to share? And maybe you're hoarding what you grow, but I already shared with you what I grow and it just was unsustainable. And that colony didn't make it. So why is the failing of essentially what was an attempt at socialism on your shores? It sounded okay in the beginning. Why was it purged from the history books? Because I didn't know this until Julie told me, did you guys know this? So this is what I'm saying. You got to check your facts, check your resources and enjoy with your spouse or your partner going back and having these sort of, I would say intellectual conversations, but more than anything, it's a break from the normal pattern of behavior and it causes you then to venture off into thinking about new things because you're expanding your thinking, you're expanding. We are upgrading your own brain. Exactly. And as I listened to a lot of that stuff, I remind myself that, you know, when we were in school and when all of your kids are in school, and you're learning about, say, you know, the founding of the country. Those teachers only have what, like, three chapters on that because now they've got to go teach you something else. And so the prevailing stories keep on going, right? So that's why we all know about Jamestown is because they had 20 minutes to teach you about that on a Monday when you were in first grade, right? But there is so much more vastness to all of these stories and the facts and historical truths out there. So if you're looking to fill your brain with something that's interesting that's non political and non opinionated. That's why one of my go tos is indeed history. Yeah. And guys, so we labored at that point. And it also affects your housing brain. I mean, it broadens your perspective so much. So point number 13, look forward more than you look back. When you believe that the best is yet to come, you will make it so. If you believe you've already lived the best of your life, you're already giving up. So look forward more than you look back. And again, this goes back to environment if everyone around you, Julie always rolls her eyes when I use this as an example. But it's really, if you could think of a better way for me to express this and please do it. But you know, we're from Ohio and I promise you when you were 50 and you're in Ohio chances are your experience on Planet Earth is not the same as if you're 50 and you're in Southern California. Depending on your environment, you have a completely different approach in perspective to what you expect from life and it is very fascinating. Now some of your guys are going to say, and you're going to be right that it's the outdoor environment in Southern California, for example, you can go out and do a lot more exercising and whatnot. It does help. It does. Absolutely. But really what it drills down on is the willingness to be exposed to things that are different than your immediate environment. And you're willingness to actually take action once you're exposed to those things. And we don't need to really, I think, talk about that much more than that. But really, the responsibility that you have to yourself to your spouse to your partner is to make sure you're not essentially rooted so deeply into your particular environment that you've become old too soon. Or stuck. Or poor, or anything because of the fact that everyone around you and your environment is the same way. And it is very, very, very easy. As a matter of fact, I would say it's natural to fall into that trap..

"Information, but to provide specific information that has an agenda with you believing it. Well, we were listening to a very interesting podcast about that. And that might make for a good show for us to share some facts. We'll have to pull that out and make sure that we're fact checking ourselves. You know what we'll probably be on the right target when we start getting deplatformed, right? But I don't think you and I don't have the guts for that. I know. Real estate is much too plain for it. Exactly. I know. Okay, so well, and I do think that one of the results of the pandemic is that we have all seen that we have to be accountable for our own education in our own research. Well, you said yesterday, Jules, when you said there's a record number of people getting LLCs. And that's a lot of people. That is the unconscious subconscious what the hell is it unconscious conscious and whatever it is? Yes. Well, they've taken control of their own destiny. Well, what's the Carl Jung? He said that there's the conscious and then there's the unconscious. Collective unconscious. That's a jungian collective unconscious. Well, so you can see based on behaviors that there's a lot of people out there that are beginning to wake up to the realization that they have to be more in control of their own destinies and boom you have a massive influx of new people forming businesses and boom, you have a massive influx of people getting into real estate and wanting to get into real estate. That doesn't tell you the direction where our country is going to go, nothing, well, you're just ignoring it. Well, that's the bubbling of independence, isn't it? Exactly. That's Americans getting back to being exactly what we all really are, which is a rugged individualist. As much as much as the collective forces have tried to force us to be collectivists. We are not. No. We are not, you know, there's no utopian future. We're all going to be sharing. Okay, let's talk about a little history lesson since we're on a tangent. Julie, we have time we need to watch her. Yeah, I know. So you were telling me a story that you learned from listening to something, which I did not know that about the original settlers, the original, whatever you want to call them. Into the United States, we're actually basically socialist communists. Yes, well, they didn't work out for them. Tell this story for the historical perspective. So again, this is something I've listened to a little while ago, so grain of salt. First fact is that Jamestown was not the only settlement. There were many little attempts at being a Jamestown. And most of them either got sick on the way over or they got smallpox or something, or they were killed by Indians or what have you. So there were many, many different settlements. One of which, and I don't think it was Jamestown. It was right around that time though. There were settlers, you know, men and women and children, and they decided, well, we're going to try something different here. We're going to be more communal. And I'm going to grow all the corn and you're going to grow the chickens and somebody else will grow the green. And we'll just all share it. Well, that lasted for like a month and a half, and then they started killing each other over this because I wasn't getting enough..

Working conditions too long of ours not access to health care or child labor in factories unsafe conditions and then the labor movement and unions helped fix that not through loss of life both from the police side from civilians and a few different incident so go check it out but what i wanted to do is really say. Thank you right to everyone of every ilk. That's been in this country that has contributed to it. Because i truly believe that's that's it right. I think everyone has contributed in some way shape or form has always been pretty so without further. Do to keep this episode kinda short. I'm gonna just read something that i wrote to all those that have contributed to the early settlers of jamestown who sailed across the sea to the enslaved who were brought. Here unwillingly to those that fought and died to break free from tyranny to those that toiled and debated with the laws of this country should be the settlers that headed west. Not knowing what they'd find to the native peoples who lost so much and so many of their kind to the industrial north at built factories and manufactured goods to the agricultural south that worked. The land cleared the woods to the people that fought to free those who were in bondage across this land to the humans that help new immigrants by offering a helping hand to the inventors industrialists who made their ideas. Come true to the ones who fought so women would have could have the same rights to to the young ones working factories that lost legs arms fingers and toes to those along the way that cleared the land built the railroads to those that created vehicles to move people and goods across the land to all who've won the uniform when it was time to take a stand to those that marched for freedom onto heaven's gate to this melting pot that's often boiled with hostility in to those whose collar is blue and work so very hard with their hands to those ensued who run the companies across the lands to us all who have labored to help build america.

"I would just kind of maybe park it for a while. If you can. As, uh, you're going to run into these severe storms all along the 94 corridor and just south of the 94 corridor, especially these storms are now starting to become a little more numerous here in CASS County, So we're going to start seeing our, uh, our thunder and lightning increasing here. And eventually I do believe these are going to merge into a line a cluster here, producing some very heavy rainfall in some areas and also damaging winds and hail. We're starting to see on radar. What appears to be a meso low. That's what we call it just south of Valley City, and that will start to enhance the activity here in CASS County, which it already is so keeping oclock. Pretty intense cluster just south of Jamestown again, where that tornado warning is in effect until 9 15. Where there has been reports from our storm chasers out south of Jamestown of a tornado on the ground it lifted. Uh then came back down, supposedly, but Definitely keeping an eye on that out there as all of that activity is moving to the Easter at about 30. We've Just had a severe thunderstorm warning issued now for Barnes and CASS County. Until, uh nine. I'm sorry. 10 15. So this is getting closer to home. Now again, we do have a severe thunderstorm warning now for Areas just to the west of the FM area. Uh, but it does include Barnes and CASS County until 10 15 that was just issued a minute ago. Again. Main threat with that is going to be hail, damaging winds and again if these cells become a little more discreet, Um then we could be looking at an isolated tornado report as well. Nothing reported yet here in the CASS County area. But there has been reports of tornado on the ground south of Jamestown out in Southern Statesman County again that's moving east at 30. Justin Storms with us, Sir Justin, What do you have? What additional stuff? Do you have any damage reports or anything like that? I'm not seeing much for damage reports. We are getting more hill reports as these storms continue to work their way into the CASS County area, pea sized hail and diameter again, that's thunderstorm or the tornado warning out to the west by Montpellier that's still in effect and is likely to Locally to continue over the next. Uh, several minutes does look like most of that rotation is still there. It looks like it's tracking a little bit to the south of that tornado warning. So if you're within the Dickey area, there is a possibility that that rotation could head over towards your region. So just be keep that in mind if you're within that area that this storm has Produced a tornado already that has been confirmed. It was said that it was lifted. The concern still is there for that to come back down and track into the Adrian and Dickie area. Right. Okay. Now, if you have any damage reports you'd like to pass.

The colonists believed that they were for all intents and purposes levin in england proper they are not a conquered people. They made this journey voluntarily. They were not at all amused at the fact that their basic rights as englishman were being violated. Well the inger would be focused primarily on andros call. That mother had recognized that the anger was misplaced and that really the correct focus for that anger and all that energy should be right back lundin. Nobody liked andrews over. They likewise recognized that he was just doing the bidding of the government with questions such as their place in the empire bouncing around we can therefore shift our focus towards the question of whether or not that period between sixteen seventy five and the collapse of the dominion of new england in sixteen eighty nine marked any kind of a independence movement in the case of biggest rebellion. It is at least a little tempting to try and connect the events in virginia to the declaration of independence. Almost exactly one hundred years later however beyond being a fun little bit of trivia. Nothing more should be read into that. The dates are purely a coincidence. And more now we do know that again in the case of virginia.

How theater weathers wars, outlasts empires and survives pandemics
"Oh firm use of fire that would ascend the brightest heaven of invention a kingdom for a stage princes to act and monarch to behold the swelling scene. Though to be totally honest right. Now i'd settle for a real school day a night out and a hug from a friend. The words that i spoke at the beginning firm use a fire etc are shakespeare's. He wrote them as the opening to his play. Henry the fifth and there are also quite likely. The first words ever spoken on the stage of the globe theatre in london when it opened in fifteen ninety nine the global go on to become the home for most of shakespeare's work and from what i hear that shakespeare guy was pretty popular but despite his popularity just four years later in sixteen zero three. The globe would close for an extended period of time in order to prevent the spreading and resurgence of the bubonic plague and facts from sixteen zero three to sixteen thirteen. All of the theaters in london were closed on and off again for an astonishing seventy eight months here in chicago in two thousand sixteen new theaters opening as well. The steppenwolf had just opened at seventeen hundred theater. Space the goodman down in the loop had just opened its new center for education and engagement and the chicago shakespeare theatre had just started construction on its newest theatre space. The yard today. Those theatres as well as the homes are over two hundred and fifty other theater companies across chicago are closed due to covid nineteen from broadway to l. a. Theaters are dark and when or if the lights are ever going to come on again. That means that tens of thousands of theater artists are out of work from actors and directors to stage managers. Set builders costume designers. It's not like it's an easy time to go wait tables. It's a hard time for the theater. And it's a hard time for the world but while theaters may be feeder as an art form has the potential to shine on how we can process and use this time apart to build a brighter more equitable healthier future together. Theater is the oldest art form we humans have. We know that the greeks were writing plays as early as the fifth century. Bc but theater goes back before that it goes back before we learned to write to call and response around fires. And who knows maybe before we learned to build fire itself feeder has outlasted empires weathered wars and survived plagues in the early sixteen hundred. Theatres closed over sixty percent of the time in london. And that's still looked at is one of the most fertile an innovative periods of time in western theater history. The plays that were written then are still performed today. Over four hundred years later unfortunately in the early sixteen hundreds a different plague was making its way across the ocean and it hit the shores of what would be called american sixteen nineteen when the first slave ships landed in jamestown virginia. Racism is an ongoing plague in america but many of us in the theater like to think we're not infected or that we are at worst as symptomatic but the truth is our symptoms have been glaring onstage and off. We have the opportunity to use this intermission. Caused by one clegg to work to cure another. We can champion a theater. That marches protests burns bills. We can reimagine the way our theaters institutions work to make them more reflective. And just we can make this one of the most innovative and transformative periods of time in western theater. History one that we're still learning about celebrating four hundred years from now. What we embody in the theater can be embodied in the world. Why because theater is an essential service.

"This week has left a lot of people. Stunned as americans are reeling from the violence that occurred on wednesday as a number of insurrectionists or anarchists or whatever you would like to call them were incited by president trump to attack the capitol building and they had explosives. They had firearms. They broke windows. They were anything but peaceful and watching. Both what happened on wednesday and the different alternative realities that have played out in politicians speeches and media narratives as this has come out has only made the world more confusing to a lot of americans. Those of you who listen to this. Podcast regularly may remember that back in october. I spoke with jeff orlowski and louis roads the makers of the film the social dilemma which is still available to stream on net flicks. That really the only thing. I am able to look at right now. That helps me understand any aspect of what is going on in american politics right now as all of these recollections of the incident and reactions are happening the only thing that explains to me why some people in america react one way and others react in completely the opposite way when they hear about the very same event. Part of it is the media narratives. That can't be disputed but part of it is also this idea of alternate truths and alternate realities a lot of which has been contributed to by platforms like facebook and twitter and instagram. And that's exactly what the social dilemma addresses. And why. I think that film is so important to this moment right now particularly in american history. But it's just as important to remember why exactly democracy is suddenly on the brink of all around the world and that digital platforms and technology have as much to do with it anywhere. It is happening anywhere in the world because the spread is so far and wide but in america we also have a history that plays out with this. And i haven't thoroughly come to terms with the events that have happened but i will say that a lot of people are comparing this to things that happened in seventeen seventy six and eighteen twelve but really it goes right back to what we declare to be the founding of this country when settlers landed at jamestown and essentially took away all of the rights of the natives and took away their land. There is something very primarily supremacist about these actions. And i haven't figured out my thoughts and feelings on this topic..

This is the way it's going to be again and here comes trump while still president Stopping it somehow threatening a pocket veto threatening a straight up, Vito. You know, here's the thing after Trump called on Congress to increase The payments from $600 to 2000 Pelosi tweeted. She agrees with it. Oh, yeah. But then she had to lie and blame Trump for the $600 figure in the first place. Losi tweeted Last night, the Republicans repeatedly refused to say what amount the president wanted for direct checks. Democrats are ready to bring this to the floor this week by unanimous consent. Let's do it. Trump and offered a covert relief deal a couple months ago that was twice as large. This is what you You people probably know it. Trump offered and wanted a $1.8 trillion covert relief bill. Not 900 billion. He wanted 1.8 trillion He wanted double the amount to go to the American people. And Pelosi, the Democrats. That ain't no way, buddy. Not before the election were not given you this. We're not gonna let anything happen to show the American people. You're looking out for him. And so Pelosi refused. Didn't want any part of it. And now she's claiming and all of this is Trump's fault, because Trump wouldn't specify the amount of direct payment that he wanted. The most. He turned it down. She didn't want to do anything that might help Trump get re elected and now She's more than eager to sign on to $2000 because she is lying and making it look like the reason she didn't support this amount before the election is a Trump wouldn't specify it. And Congress couldn't work today. That's not that they weren't going to stay. They were gonna pass anything. That would be beneficial to trumpet for me, and by the way, that's politics. Wanna one? I'm not suggesting if you should have, But when they're out there talking about how much they love. The American people have been looking out for the American people. The American people mattered more. It's like the Democrats. Looking out for the little guy Democrats making true the little guy doesn't get squashed and stomped on. It's B s. The Democrats are not looking up for the little guy. They haven't been looking up in little guys since vested money. The interests Led by Big Tech became the bankrollers of the Democrat Party.

They're keeping their states locked down, which is preventing an all out American economic recovery. It's being done. He knows the harm him politically.

Ultimate Gamer Brings Esports to Times Square for New Years Eve
"We are talking video games on New Year's Eve while Time Square will be packed with people excited to bring out this hellish year. The Times Square spirit will still come through with a virtual event through a partnership between Ultimate Gamer and Global real estate firm. Jamestown Ultimate Gamer is an online tournament Palm like community. And today we're talking to Steve Suarez ultimate gaming CEO Steve, welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me Mitch. It's an honor to be here. I'm excited to talk with Steve primarily about New Year's Eve event. And then also talking about Ultimate Gamer In general first at this mie event Ultimate Gamer will host a variety of straights including ones from a sports organizations Furia and misfits gaming you'll have appearances from Hip Hop dong. Gamers well, he's a friend of the show and they will host tournaments in fortnite Apex League of Legends and Valor and there's also a charity element as a Christopher & Dana Reeve foundation will run educational content and fundraising to support people living with paralysis starting December 19th fans could download the virtual New Year's Eve app called v n y e or visit vnyl to find streams and giveaways. We're going to get discussion about what Ultimate Gamer is and how this event came together. But first Steve Woodgate was here and why he gave a celebration they first think of ninja trying to do a fortnite dance in front of a crowd of less than enthusiastic New Yorkers boss wants you to targeting this day for another gaming event. Why did you feel like gaming fits so well for New Year's Eve? Well Mitch, look Times Square New Year's Eve is probably one of the most iconic events of the year, you know with my background and and events and production. That's kind of the mecca of all events, right? It's Washed by they have over a billion Impressions every year and it's televised by stations all around the world and this year, you know, unfortunately due to the pandemic New Year's Eve in Times Square is going to look a little bit different. So so we thought that it was a great idea to partner with the folks at Jamestown and create a virtual experience, which is very interactive and and and allow this gaming generation to experience virtual New Years Eve New Year's Eve in Times Square, but virtually, it's actually kind of the way I'd rather odd experience New Year's Eve in Times Square. I've heard horror stories from attending that event on the ground that like, you can't find a bathroom or it's just like you you sort of just stuck in a line for home. The hours until the ball drops. So I've always felt like it's a vet better experienced either on my TV or virtually impossible. Listen, I don't disagree with you. But but you know virtually issue what's really cool about it is that you actually going to be it's it's so interactive through our virtual New Year's Eve app you download the app or you do it on your desktop and and you experience it as a guitar and you get to dress up as the Ultimate Gamer Avatar or as you know, five different types of avatars and you get to walk around Times Square meet people, you know, look at three three different concerts live you can play games you can go into into stores and to the Ultimate Gamer lounge and visit some of our partners and and and and special deals that we have with them very unique experience that I think people are really really going to enjoy so take us to do a little bit about what this event looks like. We do. Would you describe it? I'm thinking my my braids going towards like VRA are almost laughing. Walking around with these different portals of different entry points. How does this event look and play out on the app you are in Times Square. It is Time Square virtually. So when when you when you download the app and you register, you are an avatar and you get to walk around Times Square go into the stores a go into live concerts at the one Times Square building you jump in the elevator and you go up, you know, the second floor of the third floor and watch these live concerts and and you get to also play games. There's three games in the virtual New Year's Eve app and then through Ultimate Gamer, you can play so you could come participate in some of our competition some more gaming competitions to win prizes from some of our partners are really cool prizes. Yeah a ton of big brands on this event as well. It's like you mentioned massive Impressions on the New Year's Eve event every single year this year looking a lot different people are still going to be really excited to ring. This year in particular but they're also going to be at home. Hopefully not partying. Please don't party under usually that should go without saying our audience is smart enough to know that out so long, uh, but it feels like something that people are going to be kind of at a loss for what to do on New Year's Eve, you know, I think about all the past ones. It's usually a party of some sort and this year I won't be home. I don't know. What I'm going to do on New Year's Eve. Are you expecting to see if even higher rate of Impressions on this night than we would see in the past because of how many people are just not wrong to have plants. Well, my first opens that people are going to you know, the app is absolutely free. So, you know, you lose Nothing by trying it out and experiences. I think everybody gamer a non-gamer will enjoy the experience and and a lot of the features at the app

My name's moxy. And this is your brain on facts. Two days after this episode drops. It is thanksgiving in the united states and the supporters at patriot. Dot com slash. Your brain on facts voted to go. Turkey talk today. So let's go through the myths and misconceptions by working our way through a painting an odd choice as this is an audio only medium. Certainly luckily we don't have to pick just one painting. Most paintings depicting the first thanksgiving in giant air quotes of sixteen twenty. One contain the same things about of puritan settlers dressed in austere black clothing. With bright metal buckles gathered around a table laden with food. Maybe the family patriarch is offering a prayer and a small group of native americans can be seen in the background. Maybe one or two in the foreground. If i were to show you jennie. Augusta browns combs. The first thanksgiving or the first thanksgiving by louise jerome farris painted within a year of each other in the early twentieth century. Incidentally you'd say oh. Yeah that was in my history book which year all of them probably. That's how we've been taught to think of historical thanksgiving's but we're not school kids anymore. So it's time to update that image paintings of the first thanksgiving referred to that feast in sixteen twenty one in plymouth massachusetts. What we actually know about the feast. Concretely is very limited. It mostly comes from a single letter. Written by a communist named edward winslow two hundred and twenty years later in eighteen forty one. His letter was published in chronicles. Of the pilgrim fathers by boston writer and publisher alexander young and it was young. Who called the gathering. The first thanksgiving even though the word thanksgiving doesn't appear anywhere in winslow's letter that feast wouldn't have been thanksgiving to the pilgrims. Puritans did observe thanksgiving days after fortunate events like a good harvest. The were religious observances. People spent the day in church often in silent prayer and they fasted rather than feasted. It's almost the polar opposite of the way we celebrate thanksgiving today. So that day wasn't thanksgiving and it wasn't even the first for a few reasons for starters. It didn't happen a second time. Let alone annually. So it can hardly be said to be the first of anything it would take more than two hundred years for an autumn. Feast referred to as thanksgiving too widely proliferate second. It wasn't the first meal shared by europeans and native americans in the new world. A reasonable drive from my home here in. Virginia is the berkeley plantation where a thanksgiving feast was held this one by the europeans alone. Three dozen settlers arrived in the chesapeake bay in sixteen nineteen on a ship. Captain by a man who had survived the winter of sixteen o nine in the jamestown colony a winter referred to as the starving time after a rough two and a half months at sea and another week on inland waterways. They finally arrived at berkeley hundred later called berkeley plantation on december fourth. They disembarked assembled a meal. From what shifts rations. They still had ham and wasters probably and said prayers of thanksgiving. It was declared that their arrival must be yearly and perpetually kept holy as a day of thanksgiving to almighty god end so it was for two whole years in march of sixteen twenty two. The poyton having noticed that the settlers weren't leaving and in fact were expanding their territory and kept trying to convert and civilize them attacked berkeley and other settlements killing over three hundred fair playboys if you ask historians in maine they'll tell you the first. Such meal happened not in sixteen twenty one in massachusetts but in sixteen. O seven in papa main. The popham colony barely lasted a year. Thanks to a fire in their storehouse during the particularly harsh winter and miscalculations like staying in a four right on the shore rather than moving inland where the forest could provide a windbreak. They arrived in the
Dive Agains Debris
"Last weekend we did something new and something I found extremely rewarding. We conducted the Patty project aware dive against debris specialty course. This all came about as I was working on what the shop would be doing during project aware week this year. Since advocating for ocean health and sustainability is a key part of our mission as a dive shop. It just felt like this was a good thing to do. We couldn't get it done during project aware week because we had other stuff going on. But we got it in. The first thing I needed to do was the research on the specialty course and found out that I needed to get my designation as a dive against debris special instructor. No big deal. I downloaded all the great material from the project aware site studied it and sent my paperwork off to Patty and quickly got my rating. So I want to talk a little bit more on how we conducted the course what it was and what was involved. Like most of our training these days we leveraged our virtual classroom for knowledge development and then we headed out to the ocean a few days later to conduct our dive against debris. During the knowledge development session. We talked all about the sources of marine debris how it gets into our waterways and we all shared examples of problems with Marine debris that we've encountered. We also talked about all the efforts being made to clean up the ocean and we all agreed that a critical step that must be taken is that we have to stop putting trash in the ocean to begin with. From there, we transitioned into discussion the actual dive and how valuable it is to conduct a dive against debris survey. One of the neat things about the course is the dive against debris data card that you can use to complete and record your survey. It's a two-page form that captures all the relevant information about your survey like the location the latitude and longitude depth duration participants and more money. And then you also have a detailed check list to catalogue all the trash you find. I just want to note that you only record trash that you pull out from under water on a Surface are on the beach. It doesn't count. We closed out our virtual session by discussing how to make our survey account and that's by following the five easy steps way sort record disposed and report. We finished up the Night by reviewing the logistics for our Sunday morning dive. Well Sunday morning arrived with some spectacular New England fall weather a great day for diving at Fort Wetherill in Jamestown, Rhode Island, and we were treated to some pretty good visibility. After our dive briefing and going through our plan, we geared up and hit the water with five divers. Our survey time came in at 41 minutes and we managed to pull three pounds of trash from underwater. Of the nineteen pieces of trash we recovered three of them were surgical face masks certainly a sign of the times. Once the sorting and recording was complete we bundled all the trash for proper disposal. I gotta say we all felt really good about our dive with a purpose. And then it was very rewarding to actually record our results in to dive against debris database c r i dive against debris badge next to our one hundred percent aware of like organized aware action badges on this project aware site and then find our survey on the map. When I first started planning this course little did I realize how impactful it would be for me and I think our newly certified dive against debris divers felt the same way home driving with a purpose participating in citizen science while having fun under water is special. If you're die shop isn't doing dive against debris ask them if they might consider doing it you and they won't be disappointed time to make every dive a dive against free.

The Beginning of Black History
"Most of us think that the first Africans to arrive in what is now the United States, we're slaves, but it turns out that that's not true. The first African to set foot on what would become United States soil was a free black man named Juan Garrido. A conquistador, the Spanish name for a conqueror. Rita was born around fourteen eighty in west Africa. As a young man he traveled to Lisbon. Portugal then to Sa- V. Spain when he converted to the Roman Catholic. Church he took a new name Juan Garrido meaning handsome John. He winds up sailing with the Spanish is a free person as A. Door and spends three decades in service to the Spanish crown. In fifteen thirteen garrido participated in Pants Dale Fain expedition in Florida in search of the Fountain of Youth. This is the first record of a black person setting foot in what is now the United States. What does that mean? It means that there was this space people of African descent could occupy. That wasn't exclusively being a person of bondage. RETO. Settled in Mexico where he spent his final years working at a gold mining operation and while he was a freeman, he profited from local slave labor. Garrido died in fifteen fifty almost seventy years before the first enslaved Africans arrived in Jamestown?
31. Dive Flags, EN-ROADS climate solution simulator, diving the Andrea Doria - burst 02
"Many of us go on die vacations to exotic spots and do a majority of our diving from a boat. I did a piece on boat diving etiquette back in February. And you can check out the archives if you're interested one of the things we don't have to worry about when we were diving from a boat is having a die flag that all changes if we are sure diving. You'RE GONNA have to fly or carry your own die flag now. I I learned about die. Flags in my patty open water diver course like most of us have and we actually used a die flag when we were doing our certification dives at Fort Weather. All in Jamestown Rhode Island. Now I went back to my original open water manual to look at what they covered. Yeah I still have that manual. That was before we had the electronic learning. Now we're all familiar with the red rectangular flag that has the white diagonal stripe but remember. There's also blue and white double tailed pennant. Or Alpha flag that signifies diving operations now according to Patty. The flag must be large enough to be seen from at least one hundred yards or meters away so to give you some perspective. Think about this. You're standing on the goal line of a football field and that you're able to see and more importantly identify that flag placed on the other goal. Line I want to cover a couple of other things about your die. Flat your flag is supposed to be flying so do accomplish. This usually have a wire across the flag to keep it extending now. You GotTa make sure that that wire is in place and there are no rips or tears in the flag the might make go limp remember. You're on that far goal line and it's Kinda hard to pick out the flag if it's not flying also. The flag needs to be seen by any boats in the area and should be at least three feet above the surface. Now that's absolutely necessary. When there are choppy seas the laws in your area may have special requirements. So you're going to have to check them out on the distances etc. But if they don't you WanNa stay within fifty feet of your diet. Flag and boats are supposed to stay one hundred two hundred feet away from die flat. Now I can tell you from experience and seeing it. That doesn't always happen. Boats don't usually respect. Sometimes they don't respect that one hundred two hundred foot rule. The die flags pretty simple is usually has a float and nears. This poll that goes through the middle of it runs through the the float and it usually has a counterweight on the bottom to keep the pole upright. Now you also have a line attached to it. That usually seventy five hundred feet normally polypropylene wrapped around the holder. Like I said it's pretty simple until you get into water you have to practice holding it leading out the line keeping the float above you not trailing way behind pulling the float underwater or getting tangled up in the line of another die flag or your gear. We've seen it all at our open waters in Jamestown. Also remember you need to hang onto your holder. We've seen that to die. Flags get away from people. Remember die. Flags are another important piece of your safety equipment and it's only safe. You know how to use it. So when you're on your shore dive be cognizant of what you're doing with that die flag practice with it and be safe with it.
What's So American About Apple Pie?
"You think of the word America. But what specific fix symbols. Come to mind the Statue of Liberty Baseball Burgers a world class albeit very expensive college degree. Those are all good guesses but for a a long time a sweeter treat has represented the best and worst of the United States Apple Pie. If you're from around here then it's a good bet that you've heard the oft-recited recited phrase as American as Apple Pie. But what's the origin of this patriotic slogan. First let's back up and look at how apple's landed on America's shores ores apple's had been cultivated around Europe and Asia for thousands of years but when European colonists arrived in the Americas they found only wild crab apples small Soured dry apples. That aren't good for eating unlike some other fruits. If you plant and appleseed there's no guarantee that the resulting tree will bear the same delicious fruit. You Ate Apple. Trees tend to revert to their wild format grafting on branches from developed trees helps and you also need pollinators honeybees to grow the fruit so although the original settlers of Jamestown brought apple seeds and seedlings with them from Europe planted them in their new homeland. The first apples grown in America were mostly used for CIDER rather than desert. Now let's Talk Pie. It was only with the availability of granulated sugar through slavery and trade. That dessert hurt pies including apple pies came into popularity in America despite the Apple Pies Common Association with American Pride Europeans and actually got in the whole piping. I think down centuries before a recipe for Dutch Apple Pie can be traced back to fifteen fourteen and the English were so enamored with apple pies in the late fifteen hundreds. They even came up with Pie. Themed soliloquies so who was responsible for impressing apples into the American mindset. That that would be one. John Chapman also done by the more famous. Moniker of Johnny appleseed. Contrary to popular belief appleseed was no mere American legend he he really did exist and what's more. He planted apple nurseries around the turn of the nineteenth century throughout Ohio and other Midwestern states and he sold them at a tidy profit off. It appleseed also gave away countless more seedlings to pioneers who set up apple orchards across the nation he became legendary because he mostly walked estimates. Say somewhere around ten thousand miles over the course of his life all barefoot and with nothing but a single knife for protection. He became a symbol of rugged individualism individualism and frontier expansion and in the years since the United States has developed a whole slew of truisms associated with apples including an apple. A day keeps the the doctor away and one bad apples oils. The bunch the phrase American as Apple Pie popped up in print as early as nineteen. Twenty eight was being used to describe I blue Henry Hoover the first lady of the Hoover Presidency and what a good homemaker she was but it wasn't until World War Two. The apple pies really became stamped into the American consciousness as a patriotic pastry by then good. Apple's had been common for a few generations and the dish was thought of as Homey and Dispel Jack due perhaps to a popular song titled. Ma I miss your Apple Pie. Published in nineteen forty one and apple pie being the most frequently served desert at American military posts during the war. It became a bit of a mean for American soldiers to tell reporters that they were fighting for mom and Apple Pie and boom boom. The Apple Pie became American given apple pies strong associations with America. It's perhaps not surprising that it's not really a homegrown. American can product but something baked overseas and brought to these shores but since immigrants are a key component of the United States there's perhaps no better symbol of America in this delicious Dessert Desert.
June 17th, 1765 in Williamsburg Virginia
"On this episode. I'm once again on location in colonial oneal Williamsburg in Virginia last time we were together. We were outside of Bruton Parish Church a congregation that was founded an Anglican congregation Gatien that was founded in sixteen seventy four Williamsburg was founded as a town in sixteen thirty eight and of course Jamestown Jamestown was the original capital but in sixteen ninety nine the capital of the colony was moved to here and it held that capital all the way until seventeen eighty when and during the revolutionary war it was deemed that Richmond would be a safer place well we are interested in the year seventeen sixty five in fact a date in seventeen sixty five on June seventeen seventeen sixty five a group of seventeen men got together and petitioned Russian the court here and Williamsburg. This is what they requested. We intend to make use of a house in the city of Williamsburg situated on part of a lot belonging to Mr George Davenport as a place for the public worship of God. According to the Protestant Austin dissenters of the Presbyterian denomination well. This is an Anglican colony. The Anglican Church is the the established church and these seventeen presbyterians wanted an authorized legal Presbyterian church to be established they actually actually added a ps two it and the PS was this as we are unable to obtain a settled minister. We intend this place at present only for occasional worship when we have opportunity to hear any legally qualified minister well. The city of Williamsburg granted their request. They established their church perch. It was just a small little modest meeting houses. They mentioned they're not even able to have a settled minister.

Seventeen seventeen sixty five these presbyterians came out of the great awakening. They were a new side Presbyterian Rian Church that meant that they were not only in favor of the great awakening but many of these were likely converted during the great awakening some of them might have been in converted under the Ministry of George Whitfield. Remember that sermon that we heard a paragraph from by Steve Lawson. Some of them might have been converted by I Samuel Davies Samuel Davies was a Presbyterian Missionary Tha Virginia his first wife died and his second wife was Jane Holt. Her family was a prominent family here Williamsburg and so Samuel Davies made many visits to the capital city not only to see his in laws but also to petition before the Virginia legislature and before the Virginia governor for Religious Freedom and no doubt bolstered these presbyterians that were here in Williamsburg one of those ministers who came occasionally to preach actually to those ministers who came occasionally here to preach once they've established their meeting eating house were trained by Samuel Davies well. That's the Presbyterian

Hey, brain stuff. Lauren Bogle bond here. An unsolved mystery can drive people crazy and the fate of the first English settlers ever to establish a colony in the new world ruin oak is a puzzle that will probably never be entirely solved. But it doesn't keep people from trying in July. Fifteen eighty seven a ship carrying ninety men. Seventeen women and eleven children landed on Roanoke island on the Outer Banks of modern day North Carolina a year before when these site was discovered. Fifteen men had volunteered to stay and hold down the proverbial fort, but they were nowhere to be found. So the one hundred and eighteen colonists disembarked and said about carbon colony out of the wilderness. There's much excitement when Eleanor dare the daughter of leader John White gave birth to the first English baby. Born in the new world and named her Virginia after time John White left, the settlers to return to England telling them he'd be back within the year with fresh supplies. However, England's war with Spain slowed the process considerably, and nobody was able to check on the settlement again. Until fifteen ninety when white returned his daughter granddaughter and everyone else was gone. They had dismantled the buildings carved the word Kroto in into a tree. The name of the friendly native American tribe on a nearby island and vanished. There was no sign of the cross white had told them to carve on a tree if they had left under duress. A frankly white didn't look very hard for his daughter and granddaughter before heading back to England for centuries. The story of the lost colony of Roanoke seemed pretty cut and dried to most historians. The settlers went to live with a Kroto and tribe. Whether they stayed there not nobody could say the thing they could say is that no definitive sign of any of the one hundred eighteen colonists was ever found despite rumors in the later established Jamestown colony of massacres and men wearing European clothes deep in the wilderness. No definitive sign that is until more than three centuries later when in nineteen thirty seven a produce dealer from California named L E Helmand showed up at Emory University in Atlanta with a stone. He found while hunting hickory nuts and recently cleared, North Carolina swamp, some fifty miles or eighty kilometers inland of Roanoke island. It was inscribed with a message. He wanted the experts at Emory to decipher turns out, the carved stone told story allegedly written by whites daughter Eleanor. The colonists. Endured two years of only misery and war after her father left for England ending with half. The settlers killed in armed combat and many of the others, including eleanor's husband daughter, slaughtered when a spiritual leader of the tribe. They lived with warned that the presence of the English. Settlers was angering the spirits, according to the stone only six men and one woman escaped. The stone was found to be offended by the experts at the time. It seems legitimate and better still it satisfied. Everyone's thirst foreclosure around to this dusty old riddle the story captured the imagination of the entire country and Emory professor Haywood J Pearce junior published a paper describing the stone in the refutable journal of southern history in nineteen thirty eight. But soon the plausibility of the stone came into question, we spoke with John Bence archivist at the rose library at Emory University. He said Emory became suspicious of Hammond after some professors and administrators traveled with him to Eden to North Carolina where he found the stone. The search for the original location of the stone was fruitless this attitude. The growing list of details about Hammond's discovery that we're hard to corroborate Emory had someone in California look into Hammond, but couldn't find much more than an address after Pierce and his father another academic paid him. And for the first stone and offered a five hundred dollar reward for any additional stones people might find. You can imagine. How many dare stones came out of the woodwork the pierces paid a man named Bill Eberhardt a stonecutter from Fulton County Georgia two thousand dollars for forty two forgeries. He brought them these stones had Eleanor marrying a Cherokee chief giving birth to another daughter named Agnes and eventually dying in a cave in Georgia. In April of nineteen forty one these Saturday Evening Post ran an expose on. The dare stones dismissing them all as forgeries citing an acronym. Stick language, and consistency of spelling that was unheard of at the time the Pierce's career suffered and the dare stones were stuffed in a basement at the father's university an embarrassment to everyone involved, but every so often academic interest turns again to the show on Riverstone. The original dare stone found by him. And in that North Carolina swamp, it's made of different rock than the others. A bright white quartzite interior and dark exterior that would have made a good choice for Eleanor dares missive to her father and in the nineteen thirties. The patina on the stone would have been difficult to chemically replicate. In addition. It doesn't contain the anachronistic language of the other stones some experts have determined. The only problem might be an Eleanor dares. Sign off the initials e WD, which would not have been typical signature in these sixth century. Many experts still dismissed the town Riverstone as an obvious phony. But it's possible that new research into Lisbeth in a pig Raphy chemical analysis and other rocket scriptures of the time period.
