Fresh update on "luke " discussed on Truth For Life Daily Program

"The story of the birth of Jesus fit in with the rest of the Bible? And what possible significance does a cozy manger scene in Bethlehem 2000 years ago have for any of us today? Alistair begg explores these questions as we begin a series called navigating the nativity. Today on truth for life weekend. I'd like to invite you to turn to galatians chapter four versus four and 5. I'll read them in just a moment, but let me begin by reminding you of the fact that we say to one another from time to time, that if we're going to get to grips with the Bible, we need to remind ourselves that the Bible is a book about Jesus. That in the Old Testament, Jesus is predicted that in the gospels of Matthew Mark Luke and John, Jesus is revealed. When we then read the acts of the apostles, we discover that Jesus is being preached. And when we read the epistles, which is another word for the letters, we discover the other Jesus is being explained. And when we get to the last book of the Bible, the book of revelation we find that Jesus is expected. Another way in which we try and help one another weave our way through the Bible is to say that between the old and new testaments, it's a bit like a two act play. If you come to a play, having missed the first act, you make a perfect nuisance of yourself asking the people around you, who is this character and what does this mean and why is that happened? And the person says, well, if you had come to act one, you would understand how to work. In the same way, if you visit a play, you leave after act one, then you have to call somebody later on and say, how does the whole event finish? When we read the Bible in the old and new testaments in the Hebrew scriptures and in the New Testament, we discover that it is very much just like that at two drama. That they fit together. However, for a number of people, and some doubtless who are here this morning, the Bible remains like a trackless jungle. You have seldom considered and when you do, you open it up, and you might just as well be lost somewhere in the jungle as you look at it and you say, I don't know what this means or where this goes, and I don't know if there's a path that takes me through it, that I can understand. It's full, you say to yourself, apparently, unrelated ideas, unrealistic notions, and incomplete sentences. I just can't make sense of it at all. Well, nothing could be farther from the truth. The Bible actually is coherent. There is a story that runs the whole way through the Bible that is understood when we think about the person of the lord Jesus Christ.

A Prayer to Prepare Him Room

"My intention is not to villainous today's culture, which places a high value on comfort and security. However, culture today and of old, often prioritizes comfort of her holiness. Just like the influx of visitors overcrowded the accommodations in Bethlehem. We often overcrowd our hearts, moving Jesus to the fringes instead of the center. I propose that we prepare our hearts and minds this holiday season by reading the biblical accounts of Christ's birth. Matthew one through two and Luke one through two. Make these true stories a part of your family's existing traditions. Read them to your children and visiting family, talk about the light of the world as much as you talk about the beauty of the tree with its twinkling lights. Worship our savior king as you hum along to your favorite Christmas album. We're often too easily swept away in all the magical traditions, causing us to forget the true gift of the Christmas season. As we prepare our homes and families for Christmas, joy also prepare room in our hearts and minds, string the lights up, sit the cocoa and as you prepare room in your home, also prepare Christ room in your heart and mind this Christmas. Let's remember how the king of the world, the God of the universe, the word of God became a gentle and lowly baby so that we would have a way to be reconciled to God for eternity. Unlike the townspeople of tiny Bethlehem, let God's people everywhere prepare him room. Let's pray. Dear lord, thank you that even in an openly hostile, anti Christian world, we still have the opportunity to celebrate the birth of Christ. God, I know there is nothing inherently wrong with the Christmas traditions. But help us to keep the proper perspective and priority this holiday season. Forgive us when we crowd up space for you by being overly distracted with traditions. Help us weave in the biblical accounts of your birth to prepare room for you in our hearts as often as we make room for the Christmas decorations this year. Help us get creative and make it a point to use this time of year to share the good news of the birth of our savior. We love you in Jesus name. Amen.

A Meditation on Luke 10:21-24 for Tuesday of the 1st Week of Advent

"For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of the stay to the lord. Say slowly, from your heart, Jesus. I trust in you. You. Take over. Become aware that he is with you. Looking upon you with love. Wanting to be heard, deep within your heart. A reading from the holy gospel, according to Luke, chapter ten versus 21 through 24. Filled with joy by the Holy Spirit, Jesus said. I bless you father, lord of heaven and earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to mere children. Yes, father, for that is what it pleased you to do. Everything has been entrusted to me by my father, and no one knows who the sun is, except the father, and who the father is except the son, and those to whom the sun chooses to reveal him. Turning to his disciples, he spoke to them in private. Happy the eyes that see what you see, for I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see, and never saw it, to hear what you hear, and never heard it. What word made this passage come alive for you. What did you sense the lord saying to you?

Chris Kohls Reviews His Favorite 'Indiana Jones' Movie

"Move on to the third and final movie in the Indiana Jones trilogy, which is, of course, the Holy Grail. You say this is the one that you enjoy the most because it's the most humorous. Yep, I can watch this. If it comes on television, I'll just keep watching it. I mean, who doesn't love the moment where Indy throws the guy off of the plane and turns to everybody else or the blimp, sorry? In terms of everybody else and just goes, no ticket. And everybody just pulls their tickets out like crazy. I mean, there's so many moments like that in this movie. And it really is, I mean, this is and you got Sean Connery as his father, what perfect casting, the man who inspired Indiana Jones. Allegedly he didn't want to take the role because there's only like 13 or 14 years between them and he didn't want to play his dad. Well, some people, I mean, you and I are the same age and you look like you could be my dad. Who invited this guy? I mean, seriously. I give him a platform. I give him 3 million listeners. I give him some credibility and he sits there and he just is on. Hey, what did I call you at the beginning of the show? I said, this is the Han Solo to my Luke Skywalker.

"In any time. He says, here's another old saying that deserves a second look. I for I, tooth for tooth. Is that going to get us anywhere? Here's what I propose. Don't hit back at all. If someone strikes you, stand there and take it. Then he goes on beyond that. If someone sues you, give him what he wants, and more. And he uses the example of a Roman soldier who legally demands that you carry his gear for a mile. Jesus says that when that happens, go two miles. That's where we get the expression about going the extra mile. Then he closes this section by saying, give to those who ask, and don't turn away from those who want to borrow. In other words, when someone attacks you and your honor, asks more of you than they should or begs from you when that happens don't strike back. Give and give

"For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of the stay to the lord. Say slowly, from your heart, Jesus. I trust in you. You. Take over. Become aware that he is with you. Looking upon you with love. Wanting to be heard, deep within your heart. A reading from the holy gospel, according to Luke, chapter 21 versus 20 through 28. Jesus said to his disciples, when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, you must realize that she will soon be laid desolate. Than those in Judea must escape to the mountains. Those inside the city must leave it, and those in country districts must not take refuge in it. For this is the time of vengeance when all that scripture says must be fulfilled. Alas, for those with child, or with babies at the breast, when those days come. For great misery will descend on the land and the wrath on his people. They will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive to every pagan country and Jerusalem will be trampled down by the pagans until the age of pagans is completely over. There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars on earth nations and agony, bewildered by the clamor of the ocean and its waves. Men dying of fear as they await what menaces the world. For the powers of heaven will be shaken. And then they will see the son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand direct, hold your head sigh because your liberation is near at hand. What word made this passage come alive for you?

The Origin of the Diaconate

The Origin of the Diaconate

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

Eric Describes His Relationship With Running

"Is your favorite part of running and how did you start? My favorite part of running, wow, this could take days for me to answer that because not because there's so much about running that I like, but how did I start? When I was, let's see. It was the summer of 1976. I had just turned 13 and I write about this in my book, fish out of water, all of this is in my book fish out of water. I tell the story of my life. But I remember watching with my brother, I guess it was Frank shorter when the marathon in the Olympics in the Summer Olympics of 76 when Bruce Jenner was the winner of the decathlon. And it inspired me to want to run, but I didn't know at age 13. What does that mean to run? How do you run whatever? So a year later, when cross country when I was, I entered high school actually tenth grade begins in Danbury high school. It was started a tenth grade to high school. I should say at three classes because it's such a big school. So in tenth grade, when I was 14 because I skipped a grade, I was very young, but at age 14, a friend of mine, I mentioned him in the book, Luke benac. He said he was going to go out for cross country. And I thought, well, I always, I've known lukes in 6th grade. I was always faster as a runner than Luke by far. And I thought, well, if Luke could go out for cars company, maybe I should go out for cross country. So I went out for cross country and at age 14 in extremely worn out basketball sneakers, I ran the entire cross country season. I was JV. I'm not particularly talented, but I gave it the old school try and I ran the whole season.

Gabe Eltaeb: The Importance of Hero Storytelling

"Was that like for you, Gabe? I mean, you know, getting that job and being able to illustrate and tell the stories of those heroes that you grew up with. It was amazing. It's like imagine we all wanted to be a ballplayer where a little, but two dreams for me were defensive ends for the Denver Broncos or comic book artists. I got one of them. I'm a big guy. I'm 6 foot four, played a lot of football coach for a lot of it. But imagine you go on your favorite team, Todd, and not only do you get to your favorite team, your favorite player is the one that picks you. That's what happened for me. Generally personally hired me. My favorite artist from when I was 12 to work in his studio and joined DC Comics. So that's what it felt like. It felt like a humbling blessing. It was so amazing. Comic books are an original American art form. There have been invented about a hundred years ago in this country. And so I took a lot of pride in that. I take a, this is our cultural heritage. And stories about heroes are so important. And identity politics are ruining everything. Someone told me a great CF Lewis quote that we don't tell children fairytale to tell them the dragons are real. Children no dragons are real. We tell children fairytales to tell them dragons can be slain. And when you see Superman in Batman and Luke Skywalker in Indiana Jones and all the classic heroes of yesteryear overcoming their own fear, standing up to evil, even though they could be killed in prison, ruined whatever, they still stand up and win and that tells all of us, we can stand up. So that's what I did. They started getting a little woke 2013 14, a little more a little more and I kept my head down. I'm like, well, it's not the comics I'm working on. Kind of weird, and it was a quarter of our books, half the books. And now they've gone nitro crazy. It's all the books are just identity politics. I am Mexican and Libyan. My father escaped Gaddafi's socialist regime. They murdered my dad's Friends and my grandfather, he got hit by a car by accident because my dad was speaking out against Gaddafi. I do not come from cowards. But we stand up to these people that want to silence and cancel. And we canceled a chance lose. And we always follow the law, but

Eric Metaxas Describes the Idol of Evangelism

"What would the ideal action points be then for a pastor or a church? We never actually asked for this guy's answer to this guy's question. Said, okay, our church is biblically based, but we don't talk about current events. What does it look like? What does success look like? What pastors can we point to there doing this right? Obviously, rob McCoy, David engelhart, Jack kibs, pastor Jurgen angel and Luke Barnett, Steve smotherman. This is off the top of my head. This brings me to the title of one of the chapters in this book, led to the American church. The title is the chapter, is the idol of evangelism. There are people who are so focused on the idea of evangelism that they have been silenced on anything that might conceivably push someone away. And I say this because there's a great irony, Charlie. If you're worried about losing people by bringing up important issues, like if you're against the slave trade or you're against Nazis, you know, butchering Jews or you're against the unborn being ripped apart. You say, well, we don't want to talk about these unpleasant things. We're just going to preach the gospel. Ironically, the people who are doing that in those churches, the numbers are fading. People are saying, things are too crazy for me to waste a couple of hours on Sunday morning. Listening to nothing. I need answers. My children are being challenged in school with insane ideas. I'm being challenged everywhere I look. I have family members suffering. I want somebody who's bold and courageous. And those pastors who are being bold and courageous who are not afraid to talk about something that might be called political or any of these controversial issues, those churches are increasing in number and there are tons of nonbelievers just patriots, good people who are saying, that kind of church, that's what I've been looking for all my life.

A Prayer for God's Timing

"Let's pray today for the patients to wait on God's perfect timing. Father today we're reminded by Luke's recording in the book of acts that you alone have the authority over the timetable of our lives, and it's not for us to know. But oh, God, how we long to see around the next corner and into a new season of our lives. We desperately want to fix things and know they'll be okay. We long to fix people and know they'll be okay. But you're clear father in your directives for our lives. We will be your witnesses, telling people about Christ Jesus everywhere. Then you supply us with the power of the Holy Spirit to walk out your will in our lives. So father, although we can't have the answers, we want to see, we can hold on to the promise that your plan for our lives is good. To the ends of the earth, where to proclaim your name and live our everyday lives to bring glory to your name. Father, when our daily trials and tribulations are difficult to put at bay, snap our attention and refocus our thoughts on you and your purpose for our lives. This is the day you have made. Help us to rejoice and be glad in it. Not when it's over, not when it goes just the way we wanted it to, but in it. Help us to rejoice and be glad father. We all spend way too much time frustrated over things we can't change and can't foresee. Let us be faithful to look to you in all things on all days and know the authority is yours, and yours alone. Let's be sure if the direction you're leading us every day got and stay faithful to follow your steps. Less our day today and let your will, reign over our lives. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

"This is code story. The podcast bringing you interviews with tech visionaries. Who share in the critical moments of what it takes to change an industry and build and lead. A team that has your back. I'm your host Noah Lampard. And today how Luke cobin combined his passions for cloud and code and created developer first infrastructure. All this and more. On code story. Luke hoban has been into tech computers for many, many years. It started off when he was a kid, but sailed with him into college as he got into languages. He spent the first part of his career at Microsoft building tools, ides, and programming languages. His take on the frame of mind required to build a language is centered around what you wanted to do combined with how it feels for the programmer to express what they want to do. Bottom line, it is an art, not a science, and is much more about product and user interaction design than anything. Post Microsoft, Luke went to work for Amazon on the cloud, specifically EC2. The thing he had in the back of his head for many years was how to bring the programming model into the cloud space. He eventually left Amazon and set out to combine his love of designing programming languages with the movement and excitement of the cloud. This.

"Obviously he prayed was in constant conversation and so there came this moment that the disciples really were like. Hey i probably. I wanna understand this more and i want what he has would with your mom just like with my mom young so he gave them What today we call the lord's prayer and And then he went into a parable. Yeah so. The lord's prayer starts in luke eleven. This is luke's version. We don't know if it's the same as matthew same same incident The matthew is descr writing about or if it's a different one the point is and i said this in the sturman we do injustice to the lord's per when we think the hinges on saying the exact words perfectly. It's their ideas their their principles. And so i was. We're going to see jesus luke actually summarizes these a lot more concisely than matthew. Jesus said to them. Ll eleven to when you pray. Say this father. May your holy name be honored. Mayor kingdom come gives us day by day. The food we need. Forgive us our sins as we forgive everyone who does wrong and do not bring us too hard testing so very shortened version of the lord's prayer there but the same principles and so let's break down. What is he really saying here. What is the heart behind it. It's not the words that are special. They're not there's no mystery in the words it's it's coming from the heart so where where is the heart of this prayer. Will father may your holy name beyond. It's it's that thanking god needing god honoring god again taking time to acknowledge that anything and everything that we have is because of him and has been Run through his fingers that it's that gratitude approach. He goes onto say mayor kingdom come. So you're well not mind your plans now. Mind your thoughts not mind your ways not mind. This is a difficult thing for us. This is a humbling exercise because we want to go into prayer and we wanna tell jesus what we want You need to do this. Jesus you need to fix that. I need this. I need that. So jesus prayers really contrast that with you know like whatever it takes lord for your kingdom to come in for me to get on board. Let that happen on. Because i'm going to let go of my own kingdom and i'm going to invite your kingdom to rule over me That again that's not easy. Give us day by day. The food that we need this is just that that prayer of provisions. Give me what. I need this day which i feel like. He's he's saying Kind of indirectly. He saying keep me from greed and keep me from want. Helped me just to have what i need to accomplish. What you need from me just this day and we are so. I mean i'm speaking i speak for myself. I'm not good at this. I get way ahead or.

"I think that's well said. The task of managing complexity. So DevRel folks always seem to have a lot of fun as you put it, develop a relations people at software engineers with personalities. Some of them until they even have good personalities. So it's developer relations in your view a distinct career path. And if so, for folks who may be interested in following that path, what is your advice? Yeah, I totally think it is. It's definitely a career path that has been growing. I think when Google first started developing relations, we were one of the first people specifically having it as an engineering arm were the first people to do that. But now this developer relations to all sorts of companies out there, basically anybody who has any sort of developer offering will usually have developed relations going with it. And, you know, if you like talking to people, if you like engaging with others and educating and teaching, but also building and creating. It's a really good career opportunity for a lot of people. It kind of mixes the world of just writing pure code, as well as being able to kind of go out there and enable other people to build successful stuff on top of what you've done and enabled other people to do. It kind of feels good, right? When you say interesting startups out there and you're like, hey, I help them. I help them do that. So if I was listening to this and I wanted to maximize my chances of landing a job in developer relations, what sort of things should I be doing? Right. So there's things like community groups like Google has one called GDGs where you can go and get Google developer groups and they have made ups and chapters all around the world. You can go then you could meet other people who are working on Google stuff as well, Google it, well, this is obviously before COVID. It's slightly changed at the moment. But yeah, Googled often send Google engineers to go and speak at these events and talk about new products that Google are doing or interesting things. But it's a great place to go and meet other like minded individuals who are also in the same space as you. And then on top of that, it's like being more involved in open-source world, right? Like a lot of developer relations people come from the open-source world because they understand what it's like to work in the community, understand what it's like to build things out there, anybody can look at what you're doing and trying to get adoption and get people to use whatever you're building. And then on top of that, it's more just like fixing, right? You say projects that you might be using on GitHub and then someone's got a bog or something there and you just send a pull request, big it. Often people can be like, oh, you know, you keep contributing to our react app, which I had to cover and work for us. Yeah, so bottom line just really good involved in the same communities that the developer relations people are in and show that you've got what it takes to be one of them. Yeah, in a sense. Great. So finally, Luke, I was just curious if you had any big predictions for the future of the developer experience. Interesting. I mean, I definitely feel like APIs is the future for a lot of things, right? We're going to be moving to a world where things will be acting on your behalf. You'll have devices you may have other things. So being able to understand a trust model through an API and seeing where that takes you is going to be an interesting place. I really believe that the future of us is like basically having a device in our pocket and we just walk in that sort of like does a lot of the communications for us between each other or going forward. But I don't know. It's interesting. I feel like machine learning AI and then connecting individuals is kind of like the future space ride, especially with the world that we're moving into now where it's a bit more remote and figuring out how to communicate and that sort of stuff. I feel like that's probably the way we're going to be ending up. Really interesting. Luke may, thanks very much for a fascinating conversation. All right, thank you very much..

"It's gotta be man you got me You know the what's fun is had. We had went back and put some more guitar parts in there. And that's the first time i really got to hear the new guitar parts on like big studio speakers but yeah i mean one of my one of the big things that me and my brother would do especially chris like he'd come in he blood. Did you hear so. did you. Randy travis's new song or did you hear clint black's new song. And i'd be like no. 'cause i'm kidding i'm not really. He was older than me so he was locked into the music. And we'd play it in. You know heck. It became the song that year. And or whatever so i never will forget. I was I was. I was riding in my truck and i heard george strait singing run and i was like man. I wish i mean. Could you imagine. I could imagine my brother here in run for the first time and he'd a freaked out and then i could have and so the the the beauty of the way. The way this song came about is like the perfect. Definition of nashville. So i had my colorado zone. It josh osborne and luke layered. They were out on the road with me the next day after i had heard run on the radio and mon- michael. Monaco was playing edits of the documentary. So luke and josh. We're seeing a documentary and learning about it coming out and then so we i. I really wasn't being productive writing songs so and they were out for about three days will the first. The first thing goes through the first day the first day goes through and that night on the bus there over. I'm i'm on my bus. i can't remember anyway. I get this idea. i'm like. Oh my god i can't imagine like there's been all of these songs that have come out since my brother passed away and i can't imagine what his reaction would be if he'd got here these songs and so i ran over and tell luke and josh this idea that i have and they're like oh my god well i go back to the next day i start doing shows and then that day i think i went and play golf and then that day i come in from the golf course and then go luke. We've been watching the documentary. You told us the idea you told us about here and run and this is what we've been working on. And they played me like eighty ninety percent of that. And i mean i was always. This is the craziest way. A song has ever come about in then i was able to get in in really fine tune a couple of other lyrics and then we we come up with like i remember. Like my my. I remember the first time. I heard jamie johnson saying in color. I was like gosh. My brother would have freaked out over this song because it's amazing and so we were able to build it that way. I mean i you know. I got emotional listening to our those songs hard for you to sit and write and sing when you start thinking about your brother. I'll tell you what When you're in the when you're in the moment of ron really capture it right It's it's very emotional. Sometimes the songwriters across. Sometimes i'll cry but then when when i start playing it for my wife and mind my people in my world ban members in my bus driver i mean. My bus driver is my best barometer. Own how good we did on a song. And and i've had some buddies from home here and they get emotional manure truck with one of your one of your home town boys and they start crying. You it's it's it's what writing a song is all about any kind of say it in the song but chris really was your biggest osh the footed. That's in the docking series. I submitted where did you get all this footage in chris. Shy of yeah. i mean. that's the thing he he was interesting. he I mean he was a ups driver but when he wasn't a when he's when he wasn't working for ups he had a little like the world's first like little minicam quarter. You know it was and he had that thing with him. Everywhere he went. He videoed his hunting. Stuff is fishing stuff and he videoed My concerts and My cousin his band he he video their concerts. And gosh you know. It's like testament that we could use his footage to be a really important part of this thing. You got to think about him when you're out there thinking about what he would think about where you are what you've achieved in the hand. He had an encouraging. You think about i think about him and i certainly try to imagine with you. That's what i tell people. I've had some some people come up to me and they're like so. How'd you get through this stuff. And i said you know what you just got to talk to them like. They're still here. You have to kind of imagine what they would be doing if they were still here on earth with you and like i mean me and my wife. We've sat on the beach many times somewhere like even when we had you know. Infants and kids were like gosh. If my sister were here she'd be in the house looking after the babies and giving us an thirty minutes on the beach and then even my brother-in-law lee just imagining seeing things that you know. That's what this song is kind of all about. I mean i'm hearing songs. That i could imagine my brother's face listening to the song and then i see things that i can imagine my sister and a seat things that i could imagine how my brother-in-law would react. And and you know my brother didn't get to see aspect of my career. My sister did get to see a segment of my career and she got to enjoy some of then. My brother-in-law really got to see the success coming together and so they all got to experience it in different ways. And you know it's a it's a it's like. I said it's a two moment where you're like man. What would it be like if they're here but that wasn't the plan and that's certainly now. There's a lot of people out there. It's got the same questions you know. It's been a hell of a road from that little peanut town. It's been around since since. I liked the hammer right there. That little peanut town right. We gotta get your lawyer. We have it on film. I publishing rights yes documented. His song took two hours. But i walked into that that little peanut town coming to a streaming device near year for my check. Thanks man so great. Thank you really enjoy. It really enjoyed it. I'm gonna hold luke to that. I want those checks baby. My thanks again to luke bryan for a great conversation. Spending some time with me in nashville you can catch his docu series my dirt road diaries streaming now on.

"Was a student of country music. I truly was and i spent my life watching interviews. Were other were my heroes talk about the day. They got their record deal and the second that happened to me. It was it. Was that failing. And when you're When mike dunkin the president of capital he looked at me and he goes. We don't know we don't know what we're gonna do with you but we know we won't you and we know there's something special about you and he goes and we're giving you a record deal and it was. I mean it was the most emotional high you could ever have and call them my mother and hearing her. I mean my mother's all i mean. In any given moment you know kitten on the side of the road. She's starts calling commercial anything she she. She's not afraid to let her emotions show sometimes. Sometimes you're like you're like all mothers do that on this one though. But when i call in heard her heard her emotion certified phone. It was magical and you know when you watch her in the docu series. I mean it's it's that same emotion and that's the beauty of gosh. You know having her and my dad. I mean when you see my dad tear up the main a man that does not tear up. I mean these are these are things that that are really really big moments in our life and we even have even referenced it before i mean you've got to. You've got to really enjoy the amazing times because tough times are going to happen. I think they're just all a part of trying to make life something somewhat even for all of us but you don't want to think about it in those terms but you gotta love you gotta love those great times and that that that hearing you got a record deal is nothing. Nothing feels better than that. You almost like. I wish i could just have somebody just telling me that again. Well people who wanna grow up to be. The next luke bryan should know too that there was. There was struggle in nashville before that phone. Call where you'd go and have these showcases and they'd go. I don't see it. I don't see it and that so there were you know. Not just in your in your personal professional valley's you had to come out. I mean i think as as this business. And this town nashville. It certainly isn't designed four things to get handed to you. And and i tell i mean even even when we're all set american idol we try to prepare these kids for this is just a stamp in your journey. And so when you to nashville. I mean i. Remember thinking upcoming to nashville. I've been playing shows. I'm like us you know. I'm like elvis. because everybody's been telling me that and then you get downtown and you start seeing some other people in their skills and you learned real quick. You better you better polish up your your chops and So yeah i mean i had to. I played played songs for record executives. That i play my songs for record executives that when i bought clint black's record and i read that. I'm i'm in front of that guy. That's in the cd jackets. and stuff. and that was nerve and stuff and they told me no and the in you play for another one and they tell you there's something there but you're not ready and you just can't and you gotta be naive to i tell you i tell people you know. These kids have called me. Or i'll talk somebody and they wanna know all the info but that's impossible you can't you're not gonna know all the info you got to just get in there and figure it out yourself and that's what i was doing and when somebody would not give me a record deal i just be like okay. Well i guess. I'll just keep on working and so that's that's just what that's just what i the small town hard work and upbringing prepares you for and so i'll all paid off when i got that record deal.

"That that moment became the new wave of how people enjoy a country concert and And you know it started with the girls of the world. The kenny chesney of the world. The i mean the the george strait even morphing into the late nineties. Where when i was at a george strait concert in atlanta fulton county stadium not fulton county but turner field. I mean i was up there partying with george strait and changed the dynamic of how you enjoy country music. Yeah and so. When i started i wanted to make sure i mean my goal was when you come to my show. You ain't sitting down and it started with that moment and there's the other big revelation for me luke theater kid and theater kid man. I yeah you know you look at the. You look at the things that naturally fall in place and i was predominantly an athlete. Thought i us. We all did. You're tall. I'm sure somebody try. Yeah we hit throw or shoot something. And i never will forget Yeah i was a pretty good athlete. I was a decent base. I was a good little athlete but when it got to junior and senior year of high school i had started playing guitar. And i'm looking around at it my peers. Who are star athletes hitting home runs. And i'm like you know it's been a minute since i hit one out of unlike now seem to be getting more reactions with the guitar. Yeah and and. I really did stumble into the theater aspect. It was my senior year of high school and my single. My goal for my senior year of high school was to sign up for as many electives. As i could. I mean it. My my senior year was english. You know because. I need four years of english probably five english computer keyboard and weight training. Pe wow shop metals welding and the last one. I picked drama. It was right in the last period of my school was. That's my drama. Teacher was robbi davis who is in the docu series and his wife dottie davis who is in the docu series and meeting robby really. I mean when i walk into the classroom he would make us do singing exercises and when he heard my voice he was like. You're trying out tomorrow for my one act play and i'm like man. I don't think that's my thing he goes. I don't care if this is your thing. Not i'll see you after schoo- in our rolled in there and then it started it started. He opened me up to just yet theater aspects and he was really really influential teacher. I mean he he would load us up and take two. There was a there. Was something called the alabama shakespeare festival in close to montgomery and it was amazing theater a broadway theater. He took us to see. You know peter pan and and know big river and all these things. And i didn't know nothing about and So yeah it was a that was something that was another little feather and my cat for being on stage and there's footage in the docu series. We have kids that you actually. You were good good. I think it was anti-gay guy belting out but that's probably where you picked up a little state presence. I imagine we'll back in. You know well you know when you're when you're a kid and you gotta run out there in front of at the time i mean That theater our theater program had really started turn heads and win when we announced a new musical or something it sold out four or five nights in a row and it was a pressure moment. I mean it was like i mean it was. It was literally the first moments of my life that i really felt pressures that i would have to conquer the same way. I gotta go conquer the first time. I hosted the acm award for the first time. I sure walk out on a stadium or saying the the anthem at the super bowl in knows where the same emotions i had. When i was eighteen year. Old kid walking out to perform annie. Get your gun when the counter you know it was really a magical stuff that that was that was laying the groundwork and robbie he tell you when you were awful. And he he wouldn't. he wouldn't no sugar coating. Yeah it was. You were terrible when you did this. You need to do this to fix it. And i went and fixed it. And and that's that's how he rolled paid off shirt. You're doing okay. Your dad in the docu series. There's a moment where he says he's like he's this country as country can be kind of gruff guy and he says to somebody after watching you with the guitar. And you've got your karaoke machine.

Even with all those bumps along the way was there. Were there any moments. Luke where you said. I don't know. Maybe there's some other way i could go or was it always going to be music one way or the other. Maybe you wouldn't be selling out stadiums but we planted bars play music somewhere.

This is it. this is it and you've been As we sit here you're getting ready to head out on tour. Yeah how much have you missed those live audiences because this docu series that we're gonna talk about. It became very clear to me that about the age of eight or nine. I needed a crash. Yeah i mean. I tell you you know i. I did have to be careful of that. Because you get in the habit where you just count to assume the role of trying to make everybody laugh and entertain. Everybody hadn't had been doing that well other than you know. Obviously thank god. I was able to do some of that on auto but but yeah i mean i tell you what you know everything i do in music. I mean the reason why moved to nashville was to set in motion said motion me getting on stage in front of people. I mean when. I love georgia. That was all i knew. Was you know playing in front of no matter. The venue the crowd the birthday party or whatever it was all about making people have fun and enjoy themselves. And i mean when you remove that element out of my life. I mean it took some. It took some reprogramming of the of the brain. But i tell you. I mean looking back. It was a lot of a lot of amazing little things with my family and consecutive nights. Same bed you know going to bed at normal hours and it was pretty amazing and you know what worries me is now. My boys have gotten a little accustomed to dad being around and now you know which thankfully it summer. And they'll come out on the road but it's just them ricotta them kinda relearning dad not being home as much and but what's funny about my boys. I mean they are like their cell phone mode. And i swear like the transition of blowing mama daily has come over to me. I mean they're like you know not nine in the morning they call. They make their daily request of the festivities of the day. Is it is it. Is it going wake surfing golfing and fishing or are we going to go build a rope swing tree. How and they laid their daily agendas out over coffee. So you're a camp director. Basically i have been. Yeah i have and then they bring buddies and then it's like they bring buddies so it's like five six boys. You've probably got the fun house right.

Today's the basketball courts. Been full of boys out there shooting basketball and the gatorade truck pulls into the farm. They unload crates of gatorade. They drink them that day. So i mean we like. I said we cannot keep our frigerator stopped you know. The the pop tarts are gone daily. So we're having to feed all these animals. You really are running a like so you may need to get out in the roads. But there's there's always boys around the house and it's a big. My home was like that. I mean when i grew up in i even referenced sit in the series i mean our home was a hub. It was right in the heart of leesburg and you know my brother and sister. They had all their witherspoon. We had all the farmers you know end of summer day. My dad you know they. You know all huddled up around truck bad.

"luke " Discussed on 31 Thoughts: The Podcast

"First of all. Thank you so much for joining us today. On thirty one. What's the podcast. And as we've talked about before on this show everybody listening everybody involved in this program. Everybody goes through journeys of self discovery throughout their life. And i just wanna start this by congratulating you on your journey of self-discovery that brought you to this moment to day. How do you feel now. I feel amazing. You know. I kind of started this process back in june of last year when i started telling most of my family and friends and just being able to finally come to terms with things being okay with who i am and living my true self. You know this past year has been crazy with colin all nuts. It's been amazing just to kind of go through this journey and be myself. Who's the first person you told it was my sister. And if you'd ask me that three or four years ago that would. I probably would have laughed in your face because me and my sister were not close at all. And when we came back from calgary me and my brother when covert and are seizing cancelled me and my sister just created this really cool blonde and those first four five six weeks when we couldn't really do anything we were kind of inseparable always doing stuff together hanging out the house playing board games stuff like that. She was the first person i told and styles probably around in april and we had this really cool bond that we gathered over it and she's always been there for me when i had questions or when i haven't been feeling as good about myself Then i should and it's been really cool to create that bond with her and see how much support she has for me. One of the reasons. I want to ask about this. Luke is your nineteen now and there's going to be a lot of teenagers who are going to hear this and they're gonna say luke did the journey that i'm going to need to do and They're going to be very thankful you did this. And they're going to feel emboldened that you did this so they're gonna kinda wanna know how you did it so they can understand how they might be able to do it for sure for me. I mean it wasn't like i woke up one day and i was like. Oh i'm gonna tell my mom. Or i'm gonna tell my dad or i'm gonna tell you know all my best friends. It came to me at a time. Where i just felt really comfortable in that moment and i was like okay. You might not get this feeling again for a while and you'd like to tell it to them rather than having someone else find out like from someone else. So when i talked to alanna. I was sitting in my room. I was watching some sort of movie. Just kinda thinking about. You know what i might say. Or what am i tell her. I'm just gonna. I just said screw it so i went upstairs to her room. Is she the first person i told so. It was very emotional. I started breaking down in tears. Sodas she and you know it just came to that moment where is like something. Something inside of me was like okay. You need to tell her. And then that's kind of how it was for everyone that i that i told you. Know with my best friends It was just a random day. We're playing spike ball. And then we came back to my house. We all kind of gathered around my kitchen counter. And again i just had this feeling in the pit of my stomach. I'm gonna tell these guys. And you know i'm gonna see what the reaction is if it's good if it's not. I'm still going to be happy that i told them. So that's how it came for me. It might not be the same way for other individuals but that's ultimately. What was the reaction like. I mean i have not had. Someone have a bad reaction. It seems like nowadays. Almost everyone knows someone who's gone through the coming out process and has a family member or friend who's gay now and it was a very emotional topic for my first few times i had spoken about it with my mom with my sister with my dad especially my best friends because those are the people like if they don't accept it and they don't you know support you. It's almost like you wish you hadn't told them just because they're so important to you in your life. But i mean all the reactions i've gotten have been so support of the people i've told have been emotional as well. You know. it's just one part of me. I'm still their best friend. Doesn't change the way they look at me to some of my teammates. I've told you know it doesn't change the way they look at me in the locker room or how we hang out outside of hockey. I'm still luke. I'm still a hockey player. I'm still their best friend. So all the reactions. I have had an amazing. I'm fifty two years old. Luke and i grew playing hockey in toronto in an era. Where how should i say. This hockey wouldn't allow someone to come out. It was near impossible just knowing what they go through and it destroyed lives. It destroyed people at destroyed relationships. How is hockey. Been for you and did this sport. Keep you from being you for what you now understand is probably too long time. I don't think so. I mean obviously with hockey. The locker room is something that people talk about when this stuff comes up with the the banter and some of the actions and stuff like that personally. I didn't i mean. I didn't really feel the people that did it. You know it was almost like those. Were the people that i wasn't going to tell you know early on because i wasn't comfortable with because i could see in other actions i didn't want them to. I didn't want them to know from me. Just 'cause just didn't feel comfortable or didn't feel right with me because of how they're acting or what they were saying. So i mean. I had only told two of my teammates. Gone calgary and those guys were the people that i had trusted. Obviously with the biggest secret of my life and i have known them previously for four three years. Outside of playing. With calgary. So i had known those guys long time hockey. I don't think so to your point of it was the process of me being comfortable with it. i mean. even. If i didn't play hockey i still think it would've taken me this long as well and everyone has a different journey. Everyone has a different path. And how how young. And how one when they wanna come out if anything. Maybe hockey is actually made me. Wanna do it sooner just because i have seen you know. I've seen so much stuff on the internet and going through the process. I've done a lot of research and you know. I think this is something that hockey needs definitely needs more of a needs. No more awareness towards this topic in you know. I wanted to bring attention to it. And so i wouldn't say that it was rushed in the sense that this is why i'm doing it but it was obviously a reason for me to come out for sure. So when you went back to calgary this year for the short season your brother.

"luke " Discussed on 31 Thoughts: The Podcast

"First of all. Thank you so much for joining us today. On thirty one thoughts the podcast and as we've talked about before on this show everybody listening everybody involved in this program Everybody goes through journeys of self discovery throughout their life. And i just wanna start this by congratulating you on your journey of self-discovery that brought you to this moment to day. How do you feel now. I feel amazing. You know. I kind of started this process back in june of last year when i started telling most of my family and friends and just being able to finally come to terms with things being okay with who i am and living my true self. You know this past year has been crazy with Cuts it's been amazing just to kind of go through this journey and be myself. Who's the first person you told it was my sister. And if you'd ask me that you know three or four years ago that would i probably would have laughed in your face because me and my sister were not close at all. And when we came back from calgary me and my brother when covert and are seizing canceled just created this really cool bond and those first four five six weeks when we couldn't really do anything we were kind of inseparable always doing stuff together hanging out in the house playing board games stuff like that. She was the first person i told and styles probably around in april and we had this really cool bond that we gathered over kovin. She's always been there for me when i've had questions or when i haven't been feeling as myself Then i should and it's been really cool to create that bond with her and see how much support she has for me. One of the reasons. I want to ask about this. Luke is your nineteen now and there's going to be a lot of teenagers who are going to hear this and they're gonna say. Luke did the journey that i'm going to need to do. And they're going to be very thankful you did this. And they're gonna feel emboldened that you did this so they're gonna kinda wanna know how you did it so they can understand how they might be able to do it for sure for me. I mean it wasn't lake. I woke up one day. And i was like. Oh i'm gonna tell my mom or i'm gonna tell my dad or i'm going to tell you know all my best friends. It came to me at a time. Where i just felt really comfortable in that moment and i was like okay. You might not get this feeling again for a while and you'd like to tell it to them rather than having someone else find out like from someone else. So when i talked to alanna. I was sitting in my room. I was watching some sort of movie just kind of thinking about you know what i might say. Or what am i tell her. And i'm just gonna. I'm just said screw it so i went upstairs to her room is. She was the first person i told so. It was very emotional. You know. I started breaking down in tears soda. She and it just came to that moment where it's like something something inside of me. It was like okay. You need to tell her. And then that's kind of how it was for everyone that i that i told you. Know with my best friends It was just a random day. We're playing spike ball. And then we came back to my house. We all kind of gathered around my kitchen counter. And again i just had this feeling in the pit of my stomach. I'm gonna tell these guys. And you know i'm gonna see what the reaction is if it's good if it's not. I'm still going to be happy that i told them. So that's how it came for me. It might not be the same way for other individuals. But that's how it me. What was the reaction like. I mean i have not had. Someone have a bad reaction. It seems like nowadays. Almost everyone knows someone who's gone through the coming out. Process has a family member or a friend who's gale and it was a very emotional topic for mother. My first few times i had spoken about it with my mom with my sister with my dad especially my best friends because those are the people that like if they don't accept it and they don't support you. It's almost like you wish you hadn't told them just because they're so important to you in your life. But i mean all the reactions. I've gotten have been so supportive of the people i've told have been emotional as well. You know. it's just one part of me. I'm still their best friend. Doesn't change the way they look at me. You know to some of my teammates. I've told you know it doesn't change the way they look at me in the locker room or how we hang out outside of hockey. I'm still luke. I'm still a hockey player. I'm still their best friend. So all the reactions. I have had an amazing. I'm fifty two years old. Luke and i grew up playing hockey in toronto in an era. Where how should i say. This hockey wouldn't allow someone to come out. It was near impossible just knowing what they would go through and it destroyed lives. It destroyed people at destroyed relationships. How is hockey. Been for you and did this sport. Keep you from being you for what you now understand is probably too long a time. I don't think so. I mean obviously with hockey. The locker room is something that people talk about when this stuff comes up with the the banter in some of the actions and stuff like that. Personally i didn't. I mean i didn't really feel the people that did it. You know it was almost like those. Were the people that i wasn't going to tell you know early on because i wasn't comfortable with because i could see in other actions i didn't want them to. I didn't want them to know from me. Just 'cause just didn't feel comfortable or didn't feel right with me because of how they're acting or what they were saying. So i mean. I had only told two of my teammates. Gone calgary and those guys. Were you know the people that i had trusted obviously with the biggest secret of my life and i had known them previously for four three years outside of playing with calories so i had known those guys long time hockey. I don't think so to your point of it was the process of me being comfortable with it. i mean. even. If i didn't play hockey i still think it would've taken me this long as well and everyone has a different journey. Everyone has a different path. And how how young. And how when when they wanna come out if anything. Maybe hockey is actually made me. Wanna do it sooner Just because i have seen you know. I've seen so much stuff on the internet and going through this whole process. I've done a lot of research and you know. I think this is something that hockey needs and definitely needs more of a needs. No more awareness towards this topic in you know. I wanted to bring attention to it. And so i wouldn't say that it was rushed in the sense that this is why i'm doing it but it was obviously a reason for me to come out for sure. So when you went back to calgary this year for the short season your brother..
