"They're powerful enough to move us in the right direction or in the wrong direction. And yet, even with that risk, time and time again We see that the life of faith are discipleship and restoration in Christ is not just a matter of the head. It is a matter of the heart. Today is in addition of being all saints Sunday. It's also reformation Sunday. Today is the day that we as the church is the Protestant church. Remember that Martin Luther brought forth and brought into the spotlight the idea that it's not just enough to know the routines and the rituals and the actions of the church. It is also something that must affect our hearts. That we have a personal faith from a personal God reflecting his personal love for us, and that shouldn't move us. The Great American Puritan preacher and theologian Jonathan Edwards taught fervently about the importance of what the old theologians called the affections. He wrote this on the one hand where there is heat without light. There can be nothing divine or heavenly in that heart. But on the other hand, where there is a kind of light without heat ahead, stored with notions and speculations with a cold and unaffected heart. There can be nothing divine in that light. That knowledge is no true spiritual knowledge of divine things if the great things of religion are rightly understood. They will affect.

Jonathan Edwards and the Call to Prayer
"Nobel laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Weisel observed that the opposite of love is not hate it's indifference and hopelessness like so many of us feel right now in the midst of this perfect storm of pandemic and justice political unrest rioting can lead us to indifference after all. What can the typical person do about all this crazy stuff going on but Christians cannot succumb to hopelessness and we're never allowed to retreat into. Indifference to love is the very first and greatest commandment I god and then others we are Peter Rowe born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. We might not feel like that's true. But it is the Great Jonathan Edwards a leading theologian and perhaps America's Greatest Christian? Philosopher served in pastoral ministry in the Eighteenth Century during the height of the enlightenment and an essay he wrote. Entitled a call to United Extraordinary prayer a humble attempt. How's that? For a title Edwards argued that for the Christian to maintain their love for God and for others defined by whole ball avoiding despair regular prayer was essential. However, Edwards was clear that prayer does not bring hope to believers by guaranteeing that God will line up with us in our request. Rather prayer aligns the believers and our request to the Kingdom of. God and it does so in at least three ways first per- teachers are hearts and minds too long for God's Power and glory here's Edwards there is much in what we have seen of the glorious works of God's Power and grace to put us in mind of the yet greater things of this nature that he has spoken of in his word and to excite our longings and our hopes of their approach the. Of His presence that is knowing in believing the one true. God of the Universe is meant to excite us towards greater prayer for the continuance increase and greater extent up such blessings. Second prayers, the principal means by which Christ Kingdom advances again, here's Edwards so it is. God's will through his wonderful grace that the prayers of his saints should be one great and principal means of carrying on the designs of Christ's. Kingdom in the world what an astounding thought. So often we ask but other than pray what can I do as if praying isn't doing something, but it is it's even effectual. Saint James says in his epistle and finally our prayers are not merely that God would save our nation but that he would pour out his spirit on our nation through the church. But that God would appear for his Church Road Edwards. And mercy to miserable men carry on his work in the land and in the world and fulfill the things he spoke of his word that his church has been. So long wishing and hoping and waiting for the restoration that we long for is not for some pass good old days as a country. But rather for a restoration to the purposes of God, We pray for God to heal our nation to revive. The church even as we long for and await the day when the Lord will return restoring his creation and making all things new these words of Edwards describe at least in part by a few thousand of us have been gathering virtually each of the last few weeks every Wednesday morning between now and November the fourth, which is the morning after the twenty twenty election for a time of national

I will sing praise to my God while I have being. my meditation be pleasing to him. For I rejoice in the Lord. Some one. Oh Four. Versus thirty one to thirty four. God rejoices in his works of creation. Because they point US beyond themselves to God himself. God means for us to be stunned and awed. By his work of creation. But not for its own sake. He means for us to look at his creation and say. If the mere work of his fingers. Justice Fingers Psalm eight three. So full of wisdom and power and grander, and majesty and beauty. What must this God be like in himself? These are but the back side of his glory as it were darkly seen through a glass. What will it be to see the glory of the Creator himself not just his works A billion galaxies will not satisfy the human soul. God and God alone. Is the souls and Jonathan Edwards expressed like this. The enjoyment of God is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven. Fully to enjoy God. Is Infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. These are but shadows. But God is the substance. These are but scattered beams. But God is The Sun? These are but streams. But God is the ocean. This is why some one oh, four comes to a close in verses thirty, one to thirty four with a focus on God himself. I will sing praise to my God while I have being for I rejoice in the Lord. In the end, it will not be the seas or the mountains or the canyons or the water spiders or the clouds or the great galaxies that fill our hearts to breaking with wonder and fill our mouths with eternal. Praise. It will be God. himself.

No mass reopened versus stay at home virtual school versus in person raised politics police abortion religious liberty not to mention the remainder of what certain to be brutal presidential campaign. The issues we face range from essential to non-essential on essential matters, we should mourn deception and vowed to fight. For the truth on non essential matters we should mourn and hope to overcome division God's people can neither stay on the sidelines nor run away from the struggle instead knowing there is no hope other than Christ. We must ask onto mercifully powerfully mobilize us is people to advance that which is true and good if Christians are to speak with clarity courage and confidence and to be the. Of Truth and love and a world of Noise Echo Chambers, then we'll need to be prepared but even perfectly crafted arguments cannot replace Shut Colson would say the church being the Church speaking cannot replace being and to be the people that God calls us to be right now, we must rely on prayer. That's why each and every Wednesday morning between all the twelfth of November, the fourth, and that's the morning after the twenty twenty election the Colson center will be hosting a national prayer time the a Webinar we want you to join US each and every week to pray first and foremost for God's mercy. But that he would revive his church that he would bring about a renewal of righteousness that he would empower us to courageously offer protection for the most vulnerable to champion reconciliation across our deepest divides and that he would.

Each prayer time will feature a devotional challenge and a prayer by Christian leaders such as Oz Ganesh Johnny Eric's Totta focus on the family President Jim Daly Woodside Bible Pastor Chris Brooks and watermark pastor Todd Wagner as well as at Stecher from the Billy Graham Center and the Heritage Foundation President Keiko James Now due to the limited capacity of zoom there will be limited live spots each week available to everyone who registers However, each weeks recording will be sent to anyone who registers so come to breakpoint dot org for more details and Fiji's Paul tells us that we don't wrestle against flesh and blood but against the rulers, the authorities, the cosmic powers over this present darkness against the spiritual forces of evil in heavenly places when people see us their enemies, it's difficult to remember that they aren't our enemies.

Temptation or persecution without seeing revival in their lifetime they also did that through prayer. Our prayer of course cannot force God's hand but are only way forward is to seek his will together are purse can't control God. But we can invite him to change our hearts and minds including our own gods always working in our lives whether we realize it or not. But something powerful and world changing happens when people pray for God's spirit to move. The, Great Jonathan Edwards urged his fellow pastors to quote be much in prayer and fasting both in secret and with one another it is God's will. He said that the prayers of his saints shall be great and the principal means of carrying on the designs of Christ's kingdom in the world.

"On this episode five minutes in Church history. Let's talk about a scientist Sir. Isaac Newton. He was born in sixteen forty three. He died in seventeen twenty seven he was actually born in the exact same year of the death of Galileo. He was born in originally humble circumstances. His father died three months before he was born in sixteen sixty one he went off to Cambridge. He had a grasp of Latin and a very curious mind. He would pass the time sketching clocks and windmills and other kinds of gadgets. Once he got to Cambridge he studied astronomy. This was the era of Copernicus and Kepler and of course he studied the classic Philosophers Aristotle and Plato. He kept his notebooks and in one of them. He wrote amicus Plato. Amicus Aristotle's Maga's Amici Veritas. Plato is my friend. Aristotle is my friend. Truth is my best friend. And he also let Cambridge embarked on studying mathematics. In fact he would come to the way in this field he is credited for inventing the study of Calculus as he called it the calculus of infant hassles and it was also while he was at Cambridge that he studied the motion of the moon and the planets and he recognized this force. That was acting on these planets orbit. He was discovering what would come to be called the law of gravity. He would go on to publish. His books is famous book in Seventeen. O four the book called optics and in There. He puts forth his theory of colors. A very interesting a young student in the colonies at the College of Connecticut. We know it as Yale. University would get a hold of Isaac Newton's book optics and he devoured it. This of course is Jonathan Edwards. And he wrote his own little scientific paper he called of light rays and this was all from. Reading Isaac Newton and Edwards draws this corollary from just being amazed at how the actual physical human eye processes light rays. This is what Edwards had to write hence the infinite art that was exercised in the formation of the eye that has given it such an exquisite sense that it should perceive the touch of those few rays of the least fixed stars which enter the eye which all put together won't amount to the million million million million million to part of the least moat of such an exquisite sense that it should distinctly perceive an image upon the retina that it is not above the eighty million millionth part of an inch wide. That has so nicely polished the retina that it should receive so small a picture upon it when the least pro Tuba Rinse or an evenness would utterly destroy and confound it here's Edwards amazed at the human eye but far more amazed at the God who created the human eye and the God who created the universe and it was Isaac Newton who unlocked this for Edwards and it was Isaac Newton who unlocked this for so many other people as Alexander Pope. The poet has it that nature and nature's laws lay hidden by night. God said let Newton be and then there was light Newton as the father of modern science. Believed that no way would science give us less room for God or somehow make less space for God and understanding of him? In fact it was the exact opposite for Isaac Newton. The more he studied God's universe the more he was led to acknowledge and worship God. Newton once said gravity may very well explained the motion of the planets for the can't explain who set the planets in motion. God governs all things and God knows all that is or all that can be known. That's the Great Isaac Newton
The Teddy Bear!
"Early in the year of Nineteen O one. The manager of the Bronx Zoo in New York got a very unusual letter. The typewritten note was dated January. Second Gentleman I have a small named Jonathan Edwards and we find we do not have the accommodations to keep him so I should like to present him to the Bronx Zoological Gardens. Can you send someone out here to tend to his shipment then written by hand next to this is a further question? I think it says or shall I ship him myself but it's hard to read the messy scribbled handwriting in any case the letter is signed yours. Truly t roosevelt. Now as you might have guessed that T- Roosevelt is Theodore Roosevelt. A man who would soon unexpectedly find himself as the president of the United States. But that probably wasn't the first thing that jumped out to William Hornets manager of the Bronx Zoo. His thoughts were probably something like bear a bear a pet bear in New York. Of course you don't have any accommodations to keep them. Who Does he's a bear and wait. Did you say his name is Jonathan Edwards? Were kind of name. Is that for a bear name. A bear poo or growly or berry made even snuggles. If he's got the right personality but Jonathan Edwards Kinda Weirdo. Oh right teddy. Roosevelt Theodore you see Theodore. Roosevelt had just finished his duty. As governor of New York State that term ended on December thirty first and on that upcoming March fourth he would be sworn in as vice president of the United States in the time between governing and vice president and it seems teddy him. The idol was trying to take care of some personal matters which included but were not limited to a live bear rather than ask the million questions that were surely. On the zookeepers. Mind William Hornets. Just said yes. It was Teddy Roosevelt after all right right but Hornets did ask where on earth the bear came from soon to be vice president. Roosevelt had already moved on to other matters because his reply was short. And Sweet. My dear Mr Hornets. The back came from West Virginia. Very Truly Theodore Roosevelt's. Let's not a lot of information from a man who could be pretty verbose that means he talked a lot and he also wrote a lot dude wrote thirty five books in his lifetime over one hundred and fifty thousand letters to people so you'd think he could have offered a bit more explanation as to what he was doing with a bear at his house a few months prior he did elaborate a bit more in one of those one hundred and fifty thousand letters that he wrote to a friend. He told his pal that some supporters in West Virginia had presented the bear to him as a gift. And well. You can't say no to a gift especially a Harry. One was sharp teeth honestly. A pet bear wasn't entirely off the Charts the Roosevelt while Jonathan Edwards. The bear would eventually go to live in the Bronx Zoo. It might not have felt that much different. From the Roosevelt home to the creature he would have been more than us to being surrounded by a mess of animals. And I'm not talking about the six Roosevelt kids running around the home. I'm talking about all of their pets. The list of Roosevelt family pets goes on and on there was a lizard named bill and a pig named MoD a badger named Josefa and a blue macaw named Eli Gail Barron. Sprinkle was a hen and Peter was of course a rabbit. There are also a whole bunch of Guinea pigs with names. That don't disappoint. They were called Admiral. Dewey Dr Johnson Bishop Tone Fighting Bob Evans and Father O'Grady. As if that weren't enough there was also a one. Legged Rooster Hyena a pony and my favorite a Green Garter. Snake named Emily Spinach. As you can see the Roosevelt's took their pets and their pet names quite seriously. Animal hijinks and Shenanigans were very common among the six Roosevelt kids once when brother. Archie was sick in bed. His siblings hatched a scheme to cheer him up. They lead their pony up the stairs to his room to surprise him which it certainly did but the pony was more excited to see his reflection in a bedroom mirror so much so that he would not leave and then there was the time that Quinton burst into his father's office at the time. Teddy Theodore Right. Sorry Theodore was in the middle of an important closed-door meeting with senators and other politicians closed doors. Don't always mean much to a kid with animals in his pockets and Quinton didn't think twice about interrupting the meeting. The men kindly obliged pause the meeting while the boy threw his arms around his beloved father who Shirley laughed proudly and started to shoot the boy away but Quinton had a surprise. The boy pulled four snakes out of his pocket and place them on the table in the middle of the room. Apparently these men did not have a similar menagerie of animals in their own households because these powerful yet easily frightened men jumped up like popcorn scrambled to the edge of the room. Faster than Greece geese it was surely a funny moment for the Roosevelt's so as we've said Jonathan Edwards would live his days in the Bronx Zoo but he wasn't the only fateful bear in Teddy's life. Okay he wasn't the only fateful bear in Theodore's life no there was another. Roosevelt was sworn in as vice president and March of nineteen o one and six months later in September. He was president of the United States. It wasn't supposed to happen that way. But President William McKinley was assassinated while attending the world's bear in Buffalo New York. Theodore Roosevelt took his place and made history in many ways. Theatre was an extremely energetic. Man Some say he had a photographic memory because he could do things like perfectly recite poems that he had read and not seen again for decades. He read books nearly every day. Some people saw him read two or three pages a minute. He was very proud of his speed reading skills but it wasn't just learning that he engaged in Roosevelt loved the outdoors. In fact as a president he set aside two hundred thirty million acres of land to protect and save so that Americans for many generations could enjoy these forests parks and Animal Sanctuaries Theodore love to spend time in nature himself. He loved to horseback ride and he was also an avid hunter in November of Nineteen. O Two just after his first full year as president. He made a hunting trip to Mississippi on invitation. From the governor of the state there were several other people in the party and before long the president was the only one who had not shot a bear. This was embarrassing for the governor. How could they leave? Teddy out right right right with the feodor so anyway. In an effort to guarantee success for the president's bear hunting trip the guides devised an unfortunate and unkind plan that involved tying a bear to a tree for Roosevelt to shoot when he discovered the creature in such a state. Roosevelt was disgusted and refuse to shoot. What could have been forgotten moment soon? Captured the American imagination and then gave birth to one of the most common items found in kids rooms. All around the world still today. A cartoonist was inspired by the story and sketched an image of Roosevelt refusing to shoot the bear the cartoon ran in the Washington Post which was a major newspaper in it immediately connected Roosevelt to bears in the minds of Americans probably most of whom never even realized that he had a pet bear in New York for a while. One American who saw this was a candy shop owner from Brooklyn New York named Morris Victim. It began with two soft cuddly stuffed toy bears that he and his wife Rose had made. He stuck those bears in the window of his candy shop and called them Teddy bears before long he spent all of his time making those and even started a toy company that would live on for decades. So whether you knew it or not. That teddy bear in your bedroom is named after a president who didn't even like being called Teddy.

Yes you did. Yes you did. Reach this sermon centers. In the hands of an angry God and he likens us to spider God lows that he dangles over the fire of Hell. I was hoping listen. I the problem is that still cast a shadow a couple hundred years later. I listened love Jonathan Edwards smarter smarter than all ever be and benefited from much of his writing but while he was dead wrong on that point and and so. I think we've got to really in a sense. deconstruct who got is not so that we can really accept who he is is and I think you start writing the gospels with the person of Jesus and of course Talk about being misunderstood especially by the religious religious types of I mean there there you have it in living color well and I appreciate immensely your transparency in the book and as ask somebody who is leading so many people I like what you said there are many go. There's there's none of us humans on Earth to the best of our ability the best content that can at some point be dead wrong I appreciate being able to talk to my kids about that today. I think it's one of the most pirate deeming things I'm able to do as a father's others is admit my own. What you talk about that in the book about being shoot? You're GonNa have to tell me how you wrote it. My paraphrasing is is admitting your own faulty nece it to somebody and yeah and that that's one of our greatest opportunities apparent where we fail because now how we can model to our kids how to say sorry you know if they don't learn that from us where were they going to wear they gonNA learn that yeah all right so position ourselves for blessed and so let's go ahead and hit the next you know. Holy Grai- grail of divisive Christian issues here and and it's the work based achievements. It is and you talk about that. The legalism of this okay. So I'm going to do this to get that and you mentioned a minute go so much of what you write in the book that I appreciate is. It's the heart of the matter. It's the heart of why are you. Are you doing X.. Just to raise receive. Why and and what is the heart of it? Are you doing it. I'M GONNA use a use it in the book the aspect of authenticity which is one of the buzzwords I think we've got with millennials but I think everybody at this point and so we're in deep water here on this one. I mean this is we're here. You know what I'll throw this at you if I can do. This is the commonly meant to the to the to the big church pastor. Here can I do this. I I tend to look at the Bible and I do talk to my kids about this as an if then so much of it and I think we miss it as a culture especially in the church we have. I don't know how many times I've heard Y- TO SOMEBODY WHO's in dire straits. Oh come on we all we all know God a work all things together gather for good and they put a period there only serious he can work for good. It's possible but there's an if then it says to those who I love God to those who are called. According to his purpose it puts an impetus on me to do something which you do you hit that head on and talk about. You've some danger in there some controversial. Because you're saying yet you have to position yourself for the blessing and that's to me. That was a primary message of the book. But you did it in a way and I don't know if I can do justice to it. God Help me insane. It does we're not talking about salvation. This is what I find myself talking to my kids about Out Mark we're not talking about salvation. Do this to get to go past that. Let's say that's happened. Okay now we're talking about the blessings of God. If you want to have some of heaven here on Earth there are well you talk about it. It's it's a consequences. There's cause and effect and I I'm GonNa ask you to give us an overview of that because it is you're talking about that cause and effect so is a blessing going to happen for no good reason. Of course it can. Generally though it's going to follow follow the biblical mandate for that. which is US doing something? But it's not legalism. It's not worked bait. We're not talking about salvation is that you are listening to the Ziglar show and obviously just queued up. A big issue works based blessings and even salvation. I know a lot of you're listening. I mean just to hear what mark has to say next then. I'll tease you with right away.

An Introduction to the Life of Samuel Davies
"On this episode. I'm on location in Virginia and we're here to talk about the missionary or possible to Virginia's he was known Samuel Davies. Samuel Davies was born on November the third seventeen twenty three three as a young man. He was educated at Blair's log college. This is Samuel Blair. This is in Chester County Pennsylvania Blair's log college. It was modeled after the original log college of the tenants over in the shamanic Pennsylvania that of course became Princeton University but this is Blair's log college. When he was finished with his education he was ordained as a minister in seventeen forty seven at the age of twenty four and the presbytery sent him to Hanover County Virginia George Whitfield had gone through Hanover county in seventeen forty five and so are they sent along Samuel Davies to help some of those seeds that had been sown grow. The ten years that Samuel Davies was there from seventeen seventeen forty-seven through the end of seventeen fifty seven those years are known as the years of the Hanover revivals was during that time that Davies I started seven churches and he pastored those seven churches he taught many not only of the whites here in Virginia but also African Americans some slaves freed African Americans he taught Indians he wanted to establish a college log college like he had been trained at but he just wasn't able to all of those seven churches so we had a college on wheels he would carry along in his wagon books and he would just give out books to various students young men who showed promise in the church to be trained as he would go from church to church well in seventeen. I'm fifty three for two years. He took a hiatus from his ministry here in Virginia and joined Gilbert tenant to go to England on a fundraising tour for for the College of New Jersey which would come to be called Princeton. It was a very successful fundraising tour and they were able to raise enough money to build Nassau Hall aw there on the campus of Princeton and when it was built it was the largest building an all of the American colonies and Samuel Davies helped raise the money seventeen fifty nine year before the death of Jonathan Edwards as president of Princeton the trustees of Princeton invite Samuel Davies to come and be the president. He arrives sometime in the fall of seventeen fifty nine. He serves there for about eighteen months and he dies in seventeen eighteen sixty one of consumption as we look at Samuel Davies Life. We can see five things that marked his life. I was his oratory. Sorry he was quite a speaker. Patrick Henry would come in here. Samuel Davies preaches often as he could because he was just so impressed by his rhetorical skill skill and how he could just hold an audience and how he could be so persuasive with the spoken word. Secondly is religious liberty. This was an Anglican colony. He was a dissenter he was illegal here in Virginia and he constantly had to petition for his presence in for or these churches that he had planted to be established he would argue in the capital at Williamsburg based on the sixteen eighty nine act of tolerate that there should be religious freedom here in the colonies. Thomas Jefferson used his arguments to later argue for religious liberty. He was committed education should not only training students here as he pastored these churches but also as president of Princeton. He was a poet he wrote many poems. He wrote a hymn who who is a pardoning. God like the or who has grace so rich and free and finally he was a preacher he preached for the conversion and the salvation of men well that is Samuel Davies the apostle to Virginia born on November third seventeen twenty three died died on February four seventeen sixty one and I'm Steve Nichols.

They have no idea some of them. No. But but otherwise some of them just think, oh that means New York. That's cool. Like, that's. It's not you Jonathan Edwards team, you go to Japan. Tokyo in Japan, you go there. Exactly. But I'm saying like if there's one baseball hat, you see it's probably going to be keys or a team from Tokyo on the flip side, Los Angeles. The LA on the hat means something it's the reason why the angels wanna put Los Angeles in their name in the first place because they want to be associated with Angeles. Because that has a lot more clout than Anaheim. Well, they have the a so they're halfway there. Yeah. They have all the put his in L with another halo. They they would get sued. Right. The re I mean, like the only reason why they have the ridiculous name of the Angeles. Angels of Anaheim is because Los Angeles carries a lot more clout than Anaheim. Like, if you're somebody, you know, how you know, what smart about it? They angels. Anaheim on the on the scoreboard on television. It will be L A A. So if you're if you're random dude in Germany, if somebody says, hey, where's Anaheim in the United States? You'll be I have no effing idea. But if somebody says, whereas Los Angeles, I know exactly where that is. I could point. Yeah. Anaheim might as well be Haya when it comes to somebody who's not from the United States. Yeah. You're totally right. I don't know any guys from Germany that watch baseball. But I'm Trump is a couple probably right. I don't know what who would be fan. I don't know. I don't know. Whether it be a fan of either. Like, I don't always some. But yeah, it's probably not Think it's one one line. line if guy from their country plays as professional setting in the being in China.

"We are now defined by the by the joy of our unbounded future, very different points. And it's even there. I Secondly add that it that joy is going to reach back to the pain of the past and make that the stuff of redemption as well. Jonathan Edwards, wonderful sermon outline when he was eighteen years old are are, are bad, things will turn out for good is as I point then are good, things will never be lost. And then this third, the second point third point is the best is yet to come. Well, that's that's our story. And so whether it leads to an ill ill end or good end, we learned that we are immersed in that and and you have no option. But to play your role in that in that incident, it's a drama and life is so Kim boa. We were talking about the ten steps for how to redefine film you or saying, I, you need to determine the John r- Secondly, you need to defy the protagonist quest. And his character arc. Thirdly, there's an inciting incident typically, and we need to sort of dentistry that and why, and how that sets the story in motion. Now, we're up to number four identified the progressive complications. What do you mean by that? Yes, we're talking about again, conflict. The role of conflict is absolutely essential. A story that begins well, and it continues well, and it ends well is nice, but uninteresting and conflict is the stuff that drives story forward. So there can be three kinds of conflict. There can be inner conflict in this within the protagonist and stream of consciousness. Saigon r- often has that a personal conflict between the protagonist and others and soap operas. We mentioned as an obvious example of that and then extra personal conflict, something external to the protagonist, something in. We often see this in action adventure as well as far as John. But it can come from anyone or two or three of these sources. And so this, the conflict then reveal something. It reveals what the character is really like. And it shows them in and some painful ways to themselves. They see things in their own life journey. So where are we going? There's there's no neutrality. There's a progresses, a movement, so you can't just stop on this escalator, keeps them moving. Yeah. So the so the protagonist in your story, he encounters these conflicts. It reveals things about his character. He changes as a result of encountering these conflicts either grow stronger ios week, right? Or maybe in some ways, both at some point though the it can't just be conflict, conflict conflict or over and over and over again. You eventually come to a crisis crisis, and that's our Sep. Fifth step to identify the crisis because what we're shaped by these things and we are not only reveals this, but we become either better or bitter depending on whether how we respond to the adversities we encounter. And so there's a crisis moment some alternate decision that carries us through these complications. Can you give me a couple of examples of that? I mean, we've let that are not breaking bad. Using our own Gordon. Yeah, I'd like like, for example, the maybe in the Lord of the rings, thanks conflicts their, they're sort of their battles, their bows in. There's this huge battle in the third movie, huge battle. And then within the character arcs as well in photos quest and Sam wise, you also have another one. I have happens at once fresh in my mind because I'm going through the Lord of the rings trilogy for the seventh time every so few years I'd do it and this is the best one because I read it to my wife at night and just last night we were almost at the end of the two towers and it's when Gullam is leading Sam and Frodo to Cirrus uncle. And ultimately, of course, it's a trap in Sheila Blair. And so what will happen in their lives is a crisis within the larger narrative crisis of the book which all and really comes together at the final end in at the end of the third novel. But that said though. Oh, this is a powerful crisis because what's going to happen? Sam? Supposes, photos, dead, everything, changes, all the rules change. How will he respond? How will he act? And that is a revelatory moment. And so we have to, we waiting for something that will..
