"Far the most of any news organization Yet the war in Ukraine renewed questions of whether a Pulitzer won by the times 90 years ago this month should be returned NPR's David folk and flick reports There is one name in the annals of 20th century American reporting that summons pretty much uniform contempt Walter duranty and he is the personification of evil in journalism Oksana piaski is a native of Ukraine she came to this country as a child refugee in 1950 He is one that formulated these lies So we think he was like the originator of fake news The British born Walter durante covered Russia in the 1920s and 30s Then as now an autocrats decrees led to mass deaths of Ukrainian civilians and he relied on misinformation to cover it up There was no social media no Twitter no Internet so foreign correspondents were among the only ones who could get news out but they were censored and often threatened Durant was The New York Times as man in Moscow as the line went with a cushy apartment in which to entertain and a reputation as a leading authority on the Soviet Union Durant he had staked his name on the idea that Joseph Stalin was the strong leader that communist country needed In return Durant won rare interviews with Stalin and wrote glowingly about Stalin and his plans So let's be clear on what those plans led to The deaths of millions by famine Activists from the Communist Party locally and nationally went house to house in Ukrainian towns and villages confiscating food The journalist and scholar and applebaum has written a history of the era she says Stalin sought to bring Ukraine to heal and pay for his big effort to industrialize the nation They took they took gray and they took vegetables they took livestock They took everything that people had Applebaum says Communist Party officials had possible dissidents arrested exiled and killed People ate Mice they ate rats They eat leaves They eat grass There was even some incidences of cannibalism It's thought that between three and 4 million people died She says there's no evidence Durant he was bribed or blackmailed by Russian agents or swayed by the appeal of communism He simply towed the line excusing and rejecting the deadliness of Stalin's rule well past any moment of possible denial A Welsh writer named Gareth Jones reported about the famine after interviewing ordinary Ukrainians as he wandered by foot for 40 miles Again an applebaum Duranty set out to tear him down And he wrote an article saying it was entitled Russians are hungry but not starving And of course at the time he succeeded because he was the famous Walter durante In 1932 Durant was awarded a Pulitzer for his writings about Stalin Even as the famine subsequently unfolded Durant he was unwavering in his defense of Stalin and his policies using approved euphemisms like malnutrition instead of famine Durante also wrote quote to put it brutally you can't make an omelet without breaking some eggs Decades later in 2003 under public pressure the Pulitzer's board conducted a review of Durant and found no concrete evidence of efforts to deceive It decided against withdrawing his award Applebaum is withering on Durant's failings yet she just joined the Pulitzer board this spring and at the moment she reserves judgment on the question of the award Applebaum says it's always fraught to start judging history through the lens of the present Yet she acknowledges even some of Durant's peers in Moscow considered his behavior outrageous He was not only the greatest alarm on the journalist in Moscow but he was the greatest love any journalist that I ever met 50 years of journalism That's the late Malcolm muggeridge He wrote about the famine in 1933 for the Manchester guardian My garage spoke here in 1982 for a documentary I mean there's no question about that I mean anybody were talking to new that there was a terrible family going on and indeed in Moscow itself there was a decided food shortage The New York Times has come under periodic pressure to disavow Durant's work The times nonetheless still list ranty among its Pulitzer winners with a publicly posted essay calling his work discredited and explaining why I asked the paper's next executive editor Joseph Kahn about Durant's award and his legacy I think it was a very very different time and place I mean the notion that you had a single correspondent on his or her own sort of defining take on a major story doesn't feel like the world we live in today Khan says the times has 40 journalists in Ukraine right now and says what it's doing is in some ways making up for the papers past shortcomings Back in 2003 after its formal review then times publisher Arthur salzburger junior said stripping Durant his work of the award would be like airbrushing history something Stalin did Bill Keller had just become the times executive editor of that summer He tells NPR he looks back with some regret I mean I can articulate a case for not revoking the prize And say this is a teachable moment hold the prize out there but surround it with the shame It deserves Which is what the paper and the Pulitzer board have sought to do I can articulate that case but I thought the Pulitzer board's reasoning and not doing away with the prize was pretty lame.

"Meanwhile, Walter durante, who is mentioned in that film you just mentioned mister Jones, he received the Pulitzer Prize. And there's been numerous attempts by Ukrainians by many Americans of Ukrainian descent to try to get the New York Times to rescind that Pulitzer and they have refused to do so. I mean, think about that. Folks, again, I recommend the movie, I know, and Jessica Holland had the privilege of doing it. It's hard. It's a hard time. Yeah, it's hard to watch. But I had privilege of spending some time with Holland and look, she knows communism. She's I guess in her 70s now. Brilliant director, brilliant film. It is hard to watch, but it's so real because you think this actually happened. And it's not there's nothing gratuitous. In other words, there are certain films that are just, you know, there's gratuitous stuff. This was just brilliantly done. You have a real glimpse of what it was like. And here was Durant, like many in our media today, Durant was lying. The Soviets gave him. He was the I think the bureau chief for The New York Times in Moscow. And they were giving him women alcohol, a premium apartment. Access to anything that he wanted provided that he continued to carry on the stalinist narrative that everything was wonderful and he continued to lie. And so Durant he denounced Gareth Jones, who was murdered. And he denounced Malcolm muggeridge, both his liars. And a Garrett Jones died telling the truth and Malcolm munger would scream to the top of his lungs to the day that he died, but stalinism was with socialism was. It's a level of evil that most Americans are simply unfamiliar with, and it is why I would argue why the church in America is either dead or ineffective because we act as though this evil doesn't exist. If you don't confront that evil with your faith with the goodness of the God that lives inside you, your faith is largely theoretical. And when I saw the film, I thought to myself, this is, it's astonishing. You have campus crusade crew publishing blog posts about systematic racism and stuff. Not a word about the fact that the media today is suppressing the murder of Uyghur Muslims in China by communists just as they were suppressing news about the murder of the peasants in the Ukraine. Nothing new under the sun, same narrative. Our faith has to speak to that. It has to deal with that, or it's effectively meaningless. We're practically atheists. And so I was just so moved by that film. I thought I had to bring it up because I know you know about it. And of course, you have been to the Ukraine. Many times, I've been there no less than 7 times. I was spoken to many groups there. We adopted our daughter Sasha from there. Ukraine has traditionally been a doormat for invading armies from both the left. Excuse me, but from both the east and the west. And has been the breadbasket of Russia and yet but this is not our war. And this is an effort to try to wag the dog. You know, it's an effort to change the narrative to turn things away from what we now know and suspect it all along that the Clinton campaign and the Department of Justice and the Obama White House were doing. All of this is starting to come out. And so the effort is to shift the narrative away from that. But Eric Clinton, let me say something about our previous conversation that ties into this. The effort to portray people like your mom and dad, like my family members, my father in law. A quiet law abiding man who worked as a laborer for 40 years. These are not, these are not people the truckers, what we're seeing right now. Where's the data showing the truckers is a bunch of radicals a terrorist? Let's.

"We'll see the problem. We'll see the promise. We'll see the people. God chose to bring that promise and finally the proclamation of that good news i. let's identify the problem. This as i said was one of the darkest moments in the history of visual. Everything had gone wrong. That sunk to the lowest of the depths and their economy had completely collapsed. A feminine had swept land and the king was powerless to do anything about it. Things were so bad people were so hungry they were eating. What is identified in the king james version as dove dung. I don't know if you know what that is that would be pigeon poop. Okay what do i say. That's what it was. in fact. Delicacy of this time would have been the head of a donkey. There were so impoverished and so hungry. In fact there was one incident that broke out to women decided to kill in eat their own sons and they struck an agreement that they would eat one boy and one day and the other on the next and so they killed the first boy and they ate him and then the next day the mother of that boy change reminding him and the lady who killed her on the day before was upset and so they went to the king. King this is a right. It's her turn to kill her boy so we can eat them. What are you gonna do about it. And the king couldn't believe this was happening and we read that he ripped his clothes and that was sort of a biblical way of saying usually that you're repenting but he was frustrated. He was angry. So what did he do that. He dropped to his knees and say god. What's wrong. What have we done to bring this calamity upon us. Lord have mercy on us no it king said. Where's that stinking prophet of the lord. Elisha i wanna dead now. What he strikes out at god's representative because they were reaping the consequences of their sinful actions. You see god had withdrawn his blessing from the nation of israel. Why because the attorney to worshipping false gods let me be straight with you idolatry really bothers god a lot now. We don't think it's that big of a deal. I read a poll a while. Back where people sort of assess the ten commandments. And they believed that murdering was the worst thing that you could do and maybe adultery wasn't far behind it but a lot of people said we don't think idolatry is that big of a deal really well. God begs to differ because the first two commandments. Actually deal with the topic of idolatry. Why is that a big deal to god. Because you're not worshiping. God you're going to be worshiping someone or something in his place and all these other actions and sinful activities really are the result of god not being in its proper place in our life. God cares about being number one. I know some people are bothered by that. I read that oprah winfrey once said that she can't worship a jealous god a god that wants our praise her. God would never be that way. Well i don't know about oprah's god but i'll tell you about the god of the bible. Here's a jealous god. And he will not share. His glory with another is a little paranoid. And god's part isn't it over. Is that how you see it. Let me ask you a husbands. How would you feel if your wife was going out with a different guy every night of the week. Are you good with that. Oh it's cool. You're an idiot. How would you feel if your husband had a girlfriend for every day of the week. Well of course you would never accept that because when you enter into a marriage relationship you expect him to be faithful to you and that's what you should expect and the same way when we enter into a relationship with god he expects our feet felicity him he is faithful certainly to us and he says i don't want you to have any other gods performing but the king was worshiping other gods and so this feminine came and so the consequences came but instead of turning to the lord wants to turn on god's servant it's an interesting thing you know people will sin against god the reap the consequences of sinning against god and then they'll get mad at god for letting this happen to them as though he somehow did it to them when in reality got worn them all along. Don't do this or that's so could happen. And then they will also strike out against god's people maybe you'll go up to someone and say you know what this situation that you're in right now a lot of it you brought on yourself if you would just turned from your sin. Who are you to judge me. Who do you think you are you. Perfect not perfect. Not at all. But i just know the word of god. No i don't care cure the word. You know what you're a hypocrite. And you're judgmental. And you're holier than thou in the bible say judge not lest you be judged well yeah the bible does say that. But it's actually tough. I don't care what saying okay. Fine whatever but if you had that happened to you you go to someone even in love and in meekness and try to offer a solution and they get angry at you you know. That just means you're doing your job. Jesus said john fifteen twenty one. The world people of the world hates you because you belong to me for. They don't know god who sent me so when people strike out at you for no reason rejoice. It probably just means you're doing what you ought to be doing. Jesus at a matthew five eleven. Count yourselves blessed every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable. You can eat gladman this happens. Give a cheer. Even though they don't like it i do. God says and all the heavens apply and know that you're in good company because my profits and witnesses have always gone into this kind of trouble. Yes this was coming because of their disobedience because the king couldn't solve it you know a lot of times when we have problems with our economy we expect government to fix it but guess what government can't fix everything. I don't know if government can fix anything in reality. They often make worse. It was ronald reagan that once said and i quote the government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases if it moves tax it if it keeps moving regulated if it stops moving subsidize it and reagan also said the nine most terrifying words in the english language are. I'm from the government. And i'm here to help. The king was powerless. He didn't have the answers. Because the answers were not economic. The answers were not military. The answers were political. The answers were spiritual they needed to turn to god. And i bring this up because we can't help but see a parallel between their times and ours. It's been said key who refuses to learn from history is forced to repeat its mistakes. Malcolm muggeridge said quote. All new news as old news happening to new people and really all the we see happening. We've seen it happen before and we've seen what can happen if we turn to the lord. Our answer is to turn to the true and living. God the god that yes. We call upon when we founded this country. Don't let anyone engage in revisionism and tell you that. Our country was founded on judeo christian principles. It was founded on the teachings of scripture. I'm not saying that. Every one of our founding fathers was a believer in jesus christ. But i'm saying that respect for the word of god and they invoked name of jesus christ. We didn't build this country on the teachings of islam buddhism or any other religion they were built on the clear teachings of judeo christian ethics more specifically the christian faith. And i think if we will turn back to the true god of the bible the god of abraham isaac and jacob keeble here and he will answer. Master greg laurie. We'll have the second half of his message in just a moment. Whatever you said a letter an email or post a comment on social media we read every word fifteen years ago. I quit using heroin. During that time of two hours every day to the methadone clinic. And with the pastor greg on the radio he changed the way i thought about god and jesus now raising my three teenage daughters in christ the best way i can with god. Thank you so much. It's so great to hear how these lessons. God's word have impacted this man and his family in a few of a story to tell. Why not drop pasture. Reagan email at greg at harvest dot. Org again that's greg at harvest dot. Org today pastor. Greg is pointing out how to call on god and our time of need as we go to second kings chapter seven to the time of elisha the prophet. We see what happens now. Is we turn to our text. Its second kings chapter seven. I'm gonna reverse one nine you and you can read along of course and i'm going to be reading by the way from the new living translation so elijah. The prophet appears on the scene. And he says verse one cure this message from the lord. Here's what the lord says by this time tomorrow. In the markets of samaria five quarts of fine foul will constantly half an ounce of silver ten courts of barley grain lukasz. Only half an ounce of silver the officer assisting the king said to the man of god. This couldn't happen if the lord opened up the windows of heaven. Said you'll see it happen but you will not be able to eat any of it now. The story shifts. There were four men with leprosy sitting at the entrance of the city gates. Why should we sit here waiting to die the ask one another. We'll start with we stay here. We'll start with we go back into the city so we might as well go. And just render to the syrian army if they let us live so much the better but if they killed us well we would have died anyway. So that evening. They went out to the camp of the syrians. But no one was there for the lord had caused a whole army of syria to hear the clatter of speeding jerry. It's and the galloping of horses and the sound of grain army approaching and they said the king of israel is hard kit titan egyptians to attack us and they panicked and fled into the night abandoning their tents or horses donkeys and everything else and they fled for their lives so the leopards arrive at the camp. They went from one to another eating drinking wine carrying out silver and golden clothing in hiding it. Finally they segue each other. Hey this is not right. This is the good news and we're not sharing with anyone if we wait until morning some terrible calamity will certainly fallen us come. Let's go tell the people at the palace come. Let us go and tell the kings house saw so we've already identified the problem it was sent. It was idolatry. It was the fact that is your head abandon god. Here's the promise. The promise was god was going to change. Things likes it. Said that food was going to be a portable the next day and the kings aide says. Well that's not even possible. He says averse to even if the lord open up the windows of heaven that couldn't happen and then elisha shoots back while. I'll tell you what you'll see it happen but you personally will not eat any of it and so here's what it comes down to. This man was unwilling to believe. God's solution and it was a spiritual solution and god told us to call upon him and the day of trouble but this guy saying well not now. We'll work. I just refuse to believe in you know by the way. It's not a bad thing to be skeptical. But i'm belief is different. Unbeliev says i choose to not believe god says in his word no that is simply not true and that's what this man was doing. He was simply full of unbelievable. I'll tell you what hebrews eleven six says. it's impossible to please. God without faith for anyone that comes to kim must believe that he is and as a reward or of those that sincerely seek him. If you want this relationship with god you need to calm. In faith in the bible is replete with stories of men and women who had their lives transformed because they've reached out in believing faith and took god at his word. Will you god can do some pretty amazing things and that brings us to the people that god used to bring the message about. We've looked at the problem. Israel was facing. we've looked at the promise of provision. Who did the lord call to bring this message. To the people he chose four leopards tart for us to understand how significant that was you see a leper was a man or woman who had an incurable disease. There were a person that was experiencing a slow death there. They lost the ability to feel and sense pain and what they had was highly contagious. And so they were quarantine they were isolated and if a leper was out and about the head to cry out to any person coming near them unclean so everyone kept their distance from lepers in fact if you were a leper your only other friends would be fellow up hurts. So let's see. Who can i use a herrell. This betsy i know i'll choose leprous. It's kind of cool. So these lepers going into this camp. And here's how the reason. I think you know lives pretty bad for us. No matter what happens. It can't get much worse. We're gonna die no matter what and we are really hungry. Now if we figure in the wilderness will die but you know. Let's go over to the camp of the syrians. Maybe they'll be sympathetic. Cordis and throw some table scraps and we'll have a meal. Maybe they'll kill us but what does it matter. We're going to die anyway. What are we gonna lose to the governor to the camp of the syrians and not only are they. Not just don't table scraps. The syrians fled. And there's food everywhere. But why did the syrians flee because they heard the noise of an approaching army and the syrian cap. They thought the israelites had hooked up with some allies to drive them out of their camp and so they fled now. This is a great example. Of how god can work both naturally super naturally at the same time because what happened was god super naturally. Third out the syrians with this noise of army. Well what was the noise of the army. What's delusion or at trick by god. No god just allowed the syrians to get a glimpse behind the veil of the spiritual army around us. Right now we have an army of angels and there are also demons president as well if we could see behind the scenes to the supernatural round. And certainly at this very moment reminds frankly probably freak us out a little bit. And we're reminded of that story and second king six were elijah's with his servant and the syrian army is approaching to apprehend and the servant the approaching army. He cries out to the prophet. And he says i'm afraid and a license same and don't be afraid for there are more on our side than there are. There's and then elijah prayed lord openness is it he may see and the lord opened. His servants is him when he looked up. He saw the hillside around. Elijah was filled with horses and chariots of fire. All you see we have more on our side than they have on there. And did you know that. The bible says the angel of the lord in camps around those that fear him and the bible also tells us. Angels are ministering spirits. Centene minister to those who are the heirs of salvation. Hebrews one fourteen. You might say well. I have some pretty big problems other enough angels to go around absolutely because daniel seven ten tells us that there are thousands and thousands of angels. Well over a hundred million angels doing the bidding of god. That ought to do the job. Don't you think so. The lord super naturally cleared out the syrians but then he'd led the lepers. Naturally god worked both openly and secretly in other words in angel of the lord did not come to the lepers and say hey lepers go over. Here there's free food now know. The lord drove all the syrians away. Meanwhile the lepers are just standing up there talking with each other and you know what drove him to that camp hunger as simple as wanting to get a meal. Have you ever found yourself in the middle of the will of god and when you were doing a rather mundane thing. I suggest to you that you might be surprised. Hearing me say this. But i suggest to you that the will of god is not always easy to discern and anyone that says they always know the will of god. I don't think they're being completely honest. I don't always know. The will of god most of my life quite honestly as a christian faith whereby i read scripture. I pray for wisdom i make decisions and act on them and i hope i'm this will i hope that's not a disappointment to you. Thought that every morning god woke me up and spoke to me audibly. Good morning greg. Here's your mission. Should you decide to accept it. One forty-five there will be a man named joe at the gas station pumping gas across the street from harvest christian fellowship your mission to decide to accept it his to share the gospel with him. This message will destruct. And five seconds deemed. Today's today and that was the message destructive. Here's the way it really works. Red zone along in his car. And he's out of gas and the idiot light goes on and greg shows must get gas now. I pull over to the gas station. I'm standing there pumping away and i looked over there. Some guy was. Hey how's it going. Hey how're you doing good. What's your name. Joel camp greg and we started talking all of a sudden realized divine appointment. See that's how it works for me. Most of the time. So we're looking for visions. We're looking for angels and we're looking for pillars of fire audible voices and meanwhile saying you know what i have an opportunity for your right now. If you'll just pay attention he'll lead you both super naturally.

"Is easier to detach yourself from if you were a member of the tribulation force in a left behind book than it is to detach yourself away from google seriously point taken. Yeah especially when you do all right. So let's get to this note for theology. Thursday and i and i can't i love how they when they start like this. I've gotten this so often. And i can't tell if it's a compliment or not wasn't a fan originally but i become a huge fan of the show or if that just speaks to the dearth of other options available. And then eventually you just took bobby knights advice and realize i'm just go ahead and and it's inevitable and enjoy it okay Your coverage of krona has been spectacular. You guys help us to help me to reaffirm my anti-fascism chisholm daily. My question for you is if woke. Ism is its own religion and modeled somewhat as a counterfeit format of christianity. Like a you know. A lot of the enemies counterfeits her model. That way right. Okay how would you answer the following questions and mike writes. That's you sent us this note. What do you think makes up the holy trinity of woke them. What are the sacraments of welcome. What are the holy sites what are the prayers refrains uttered by its followers daily. I'd love to hear you hear all of you guys thoughts on these. So let's do a little enemy recon theology thursday showy. Okay all right so if we all agree. This is the most contemporary The most trending denomination or iteration of the spirit of the age religion right now as woke as i'm right in the past might have said it was postmodernism right. But it's woke as right now right. Okay let's take these one by one. What's the holy trinity of welcome and erin since you told me you actually did advance work on this. I'm making you go. I every time. I want to know what aaron with advanced worked. Looks like set your expectations. Low probably still not exceed them. Know that the holy trinity of woke ism is the government the science and the emotion. God the father. God the son god the holy spirit. Fats god the father pre supersedes All in their minds the science as their savior and the emotion in dwells them and controls everything they do. Wow dude. I don't know that i even want to try to answer this question now. 'cause that he's worked out a full-fledged herman erotic try or hermaphroditic on this he's got a hierarchy there okay. I'm even invoked one of my favorites from chesterton when the government removes the god. The government becomes the god right. I mean that's a good answer man but do you think talk. Well i thought about it As well it into truly tap into that which we understand about the trinity and that there's only so we do see through a glass darkly on some level on the three and one one and three and here so that i have the expert the victim and the inner child now the paradox of not being fully understanding of the one in three three three in one one in three here here their version of it is the expert in the inner child they simultaneously. Always tell you how we are the ones who know we are the ones who know but then my truth comes from at a you have these people who are in their forties telling you childish things about their reality that we would never expect from children so they simultaneously have both of those things going on and then the victim is obvious a really important because it absolutely flips christian atonement on its head. We're we're the sinners in christian atonement. We need the victim. That is christ that has got they flip it completely on its head. They are the victims. The people they have been done wrong. Therefore they are the god in in their equation they are the ones that are without blemish. So there's there's a lot of potential there in asking this question more than just kind of a fun run through. I mean because this is this is the white witch in narnia. When she kills aslund she puts on his main. It's so badly and if they don't understand it want to be him. I think your answers really good to in fact. I think your answers can complement one. Another because i hear aaron. Give the Well instead of the westminster confession or the heidelberg catechism. Aaron giving the The the berkeley confection and the harvard catechism high minded with a serious philosophical If you know who are there. Agustin's malcolm muggeridge's You know level of soren kirkegaard level of figures on their side. That's how they would define it academically what he said right but if i went to the spirit of the age you're on the street you kinda gave me the shack version of it so for those of you know by the way you love that book. It's a very well written book. It's also a heresy. Okay it's the whole books. View of the trinity is What's called modal. Ism or the idea. That the trinity lives in mode at a certain time as opposed to all time at once. doesn't mean it's not a well written book even not really a heart warming tale it just. It's extremely well written book. That's why it had to be dealt with someone that that yes just understand that it's wrapped around a heresy. But the but i. When i read the book i couldn't decide if the author meant for it to be a harris not meaning that did the author even know modal ism was or because if you read the book to shack it's clear that that offer co author comes from some kind of a lefty background and then got converted. Is that just his elementary attempt to merge this new orthodoxy that he is he is coming to grips with with his previous intellectual baggage. Malicious misunders yet. Yes because those are two different. Yeah response levels right okay. And so since. I never really understood which it wasn't his case. I didn't like make like rob bell level of event on our show at the time. All right but it is heresy. What he's saying it's just it could be just. He's understands it an error or he is you know pelagia pelagia but That is kind of the shack version of how this would work. If we grabbed the spirit of the age on the street who didn't couldn't formulate because they're critical thinking has been taken away so they could not do the level of depth of explanation that aaron provided. And so they gave you the the man or non binary gendered specific being on the street perspective. They probably relate to what you just said so. Those are great answers. Let's go to the next one. What are the sacraments..

We see coming to fruition, the result of decades of creeping indoctrination. This inevitable state of affairs was chronicled by the late Malcolm Muggeridge when he said, it has become abundantly clear and the second half of the 20th century, their Western man has decided to abolish himself.

Out of his own erotomania his own vulnerability out of his own strength himself, blowing the trumpet that brings the walls of his own city tumbling down and in a process Of auto genocide, convincing himself that he is too numerous and laboring accordingly, with pill and scalpel and strange to make him fewer in order to be an easier prey for his enemies until the last Having educated himself into in facility and polluted and drugged himself into stupid vacation.

"Your taxes show. We're talking about Dietrich Bon Hoffer, actually more. Specifically, we're talking about Belova fair of his life. With Maria fund veta- Myer. There is a new book just out came out June ninth my dearest Dietrich is the title. Amanda Barrett is the author in the studio Amand again. Thank you so much for being here. This is awesome. It's so fun. It's fun for me because it's so rare, I get to talk to someone who's in love with the same subject, which I'm in love. And you've gone deeper than I obviously, in researching Maria, invaded Myers, life, and it is amazing to even hear things from you that I didn't know what is it? When you say that you knew you wanted to be a writer from such an early age what, what writers have influenced you what writers, do you love to read? I love a lot of classic authors. So I love Charlotte bronze. Hey, I love. Charles Dickens, and I love American poetry from like the eighteen hundreds and I love. I like a lot of contemporary authors to Kristin Hannah is one of my favorite author. She wrote a book called the Nightingale, which is also set in World War Two very beautiful. I also authors like CS Lewis. And of course, I love a Dietrich bond Hoffer. He is one of my favorites. It's amazing because he it's funny a lot of his the very difficult. But then when you read his letters and his diaries. You really encounter the man and that's what I try to get across in my book, because sometimes people get gummed up with the gene. They forget that there was a, a living breathing human being. And now we know human being who had this beautiful love affair with this, beautiful woman, you right? When you say that her family Marie family were devout Christians really devout Christians of bone offers family Dietrich's family. Obviously, we're not devout Christians. I mean, his mother perhaps, and that side of the family, but the rest of the family not and you in writing about her rife, do you get into her her faith, because it's unclear to me where her faith went I, it seems to me that she drifted toward the end of her life somewhat. But what did you discover? Well, she was always very passionate about causes. And so she's very passionate about helping the refugees when she moved to America, and I believe she did continue in her fate. I was actually able to speak to in the nineteen sixties. Lived in eastern, Connecticut. And I was able to speak to. The man who is now a Bishop, who officiated over her church. And so he shared with me, his memories of Maria in the nineteen sixties. And that was absolutely incredible to be able to hear from him his views on her till his name. His name is Bishop kind of Kiner Kim. Kim candidates extrordinary someone who remembers her from those those as I know it's so bizarre to think that she lived in Connecticut and Massachusetts. And she, obviously went to college over here. I can't remember Wellesley or holyoke academy. She attended Bryn Mawr. She got her master's in mathematics. Yeah. And it's interesting too, that she came that she left Germany at such a young age. I always wondered did you discover that that was maybe because of the pain of losing Dietrich or what led her all the way across the ocean when her whole family, our whole world was in Germany. Well, she got a scholarship to Bryn warr, and she was very she wanted to get this degree in mathematics, and she wanted to pursue this future, and she was doing what so many people did after the war, and that was. Picking up the pieces of their shattered lives and trying to piece them together as best as they could. And that's I believe what a lot of her life was. And she was a wonderful mother to her two sons pollen Christopher. She was married twice that sadly, both of those marriages did end in divorce. But I was able to read a lot of people's memories of her that are included in love letters, and they spoke of her her compassion, her kindness, but also her strength. They said Maria was a woman who could get a job done. Yeah. You get an impression. She ran was at bell and Howell, she had a big job. You know, she was really remarkable, especially at that time for women to be leading department at, at a company like that. So yes, she was a formidable figure, but and you can't help but wonder what was she like eighteen nineteen and twenty one one Dietrich knew her. And what must it have been like for her? When she discovered that, that she lost him, do you have any record of that? When, when she knew what had happened well, actually in nineteen seventy four she didn't interview with Malcolm Muggeridge for his third testament documentary hold on whenever I hear something like this. I just wanna fall on the floor. I cannot believe I did not know this. That is bad research on the part of Eric Metaxas. That is amazing. I really I'm so embarrassed in thrilled at the same time that I've got to look. So tell us what's in that. So it's a it's a few minute interview with Malcolm, and she was so reticent when it came to speaking about Dietrich because he meant so much to her because she lost him. And so, in the interview, she shares what it was like to walk to Flossenburg concentration camp on foot and only be told Dietrich is not here. But he what he wasn't there, but then he would be there in April, and what was amazing to me is the emotion. Her. Voice thirty years since she known him how the look in her eyes, you know, you really can tell a lot about a person by her is. And what I saw Marie as ISIS. I watched that provided such emotional thumb Dacian for me to infuse in her characters. I wrote the story. And I, basically I teared up while watching it because it was still I have the copy of the book that third testament by Malcolm Muggeridge, but I do not I did not know that there was a filmed documentary. I am just amazed to learn this Abraham beco- is in it. He was interviewed so as Renata, and it was really it was an hour long, and it was very well done. I mean, they had scenes, I think I filmed at table, Malcolm was there at Taegu sitting in Dietrich subtle, and I am just stunned and thrilled. This is nothing more wonderful than learning something like that, first of all realizing how ignorant you are. And then quickly pivoting in saying, yes, I have something to look forward to. This is the seven, so I think we're out of time. We're gonna be right back with more. The book is my dearest,.

"Of celebrities and served as a personal photographer for Saint Teresa of Calcutta. So you got inspired. This still seems that building a business and photography would have a great deal of uncertainty attached to it. How did you go about getting started from a business standpoint who helped you along the way who help you think through all of that? Well, I have to say it does involve a lot of faith. And it involves a lot of blind faith, Tom in regard to taking that step forward and being immersed in that sort of inspiration to always go forward and to continually finding personal projects. I have to say with all of us that can be called in some ways successful. It always comes as a result of other people. And I was very fortunate when I was twenty one years old to meet Frank Sinatra, and I met him just by chance and a small theater over in Saint Carlos called the circle star theater about six years later. I ended up doing photography for him. And he used to love telling stories backstage, and he would often times tell me say kid live. Each day as if it's your last because one day, you'll be right now when I was in my twenties, I felt like well, I'm only one bad picture away from being dumped in the bay with cement shoes. But he was very kind and he ended up. Introducing me to a lot of his friends, and I ended up doing a lot of photographing a lot of musicians some of the rat pack, and certainly some friends like Ella. Fitzgerald lies Manelli. Paul Anka, the list goes on and on and I really site Sinatra being somebody who was very instrumental in terms of bringing me forward in the business and introducing me to his friends if he'd like to he was very loyal, and very helpful. In fact, one of his daughter said in his lifetime. I think he gave away about a billion dollars in charity in his not in his name. He always kinda kept his name out of it. But I would say that he was probably the most instrumental as a young person getting started. And then it was really my inspiration to seek out individuals. That were changing the world that were making. Difference in the world that really inspired me. And that really led me to meeting Mother Teresa. This is Tom Laura. You're listening to the mentors radio show. We're speaking with Michael copy one of our nation's must treasured assets and preeminent, photographers. So you're on this journey. Frank Sinatra really put you up on the radar screen. And you said you then I'm going to ask questions. So how does it work with commissions some somebody now seeking you? They just call you up and say like to have you take my picture or? Yeah. I think over at Safeway. Make it work all of those ways. In fact, I think it's the best thing for a young business person is word of mouth, and once you get a reputation of taking a picture of somebody than the word spreads. And I think in the early years even to this day. I don't have an agent representing me. It's really word of mouth. It's it's one by one somebody says something, you know, it's actually a smaller kind of world than we all think. But I think it was it was mostly recommendations that led me to other people and certainly inspiration. Again, you can go back to sort of our path our path in life. Spiritually based that leads you to certain people that change your life. So now somebody calls you up they want you to do a picture. What is the process you? Go spend time with them a day to take three days. What does it take before you finally get them to sit down and start shooting? Or did you take a lotta pictures over time? But it just depends. You know, I feel that I can pretty much take a a portrait within moments. And in fact, you lose somebody if it's goes too long. There are people out there that like being photographed I think for most of us, including myself, we don't like being photographed. So it's it's a challenge. And I think to make that process very easy to make it very personal as you know, it is a personal kind of process one on one. I'm not I don't consider myself to be necessarily a photo journalist. I enjoy that process of taking a portrait of somebody which means to really sit down face to face and getting to know that person. And it goes back to some of the early things that Richard avid on. On top me in regard to certainly in our digital age. You know, we're oftentimes behind the camera. I think as often as we can to be able to put that camera on a tripod. So that we can be face to face with the subject the results would be far better because they'd be much more realistic. So you reminded me of my my children who didn't like to add before to graft a lot they say oh dad, you could do it again. That's right now that they have children. I think they have a cameras one of their appendages they wherever they go. They're taking pictures. I mean, it's kind of funny how the whole thing evolves. But what I'll have to do next time. Take a tripod when I shouldn't tell him. I wanna. Put the cell phone on a unattractive. So you've been you've been out. Thinking about people you want to photograph and one of them was Mother Teresa, how did you meet Mother Theresa? How did that story of all? Well, I saw a movie when I was in high school. I went to a local high school here Serra high school over in San Mateo. And I saw movie called something beautiful for God. That was done by Malcolm, Muggeridge that very much inspired me to know more about her at that time in nineteen seventy six it was before she won the Nobel peace prize. It was before she really was world famous, but she was famous enough to be out there on film and books. So I really immersed myself to find out more about her five or six years later. I heard she was coming to the cathedral speak. I had friends that worked for the archdiocese that said they'd leave a seat up front. So I ended up walking in late. I went down through the basement of the cathedral. And as soon as I went down through the basement stairs. She was right in front of me walked up to me as if we were meant to meet and invited me to come back to her house. The next morning. To see her particular mission her novitiate that she was establishing in San Francisco. And as soon as I rang the doorbell she said, I'm so happy you're here because you're gonna drive me around to my appointments today. So that's how we got to know each other. So when you met her what was the first thing that struck you about her presence. Well, I would say that first of all physically she was quite small. She was about four foot eleven had very large hands and misshapen feet in Dole's that almost look like tree roots. Very warm penetrating is greenish blue eyes that were quite penetrating, very lovely, and laughing and funny and incredibly personable, I really noticed immediately Tom that humility that she possessed and that ability to see the face of God and people that she encountered in her life. Being completely selfless. And she. I mean, one of the things that I I've seen her a number of videos and everything and she was a. To me. She's a great story for people that seek power and money in this world because she was one of the most powerful people in the world when she passed away. That she owned nothing. That's right. And she ran on. All she does is run a not all but she had her sisters. That's right. That is to me. The amazing story about Mother Teresa incredible. It was that combination of deep conviction and deep humility, and it was truly going back to love at the center of her particular existence. She never saw herself as a social worker. She saw herself as being the spouse of Jesus, and she was going to spread that particular love throughout the world. And it didn't matter what religious person she was in front of whether it was the Hindu Muslim didn't matter what religious conviction that individual had. She was going to spread love to the world and through that individual. I once asked her did she ever get tired of the suffering that she encountered and the individuals who are suffering. And she said, you know, I can only love one person at a time. I can only serve one person at a time. So that's how I go about doing my work one by one. So there's great lessons for all of us, regardless of our walk. Of life. We we're gonna take a break. And when we return we're gonna continue with Michael copy, one of our nation's premium portrait, photographers as he shares lessons learned from working with saints.

"Socrates in the city presentation of my interview with Thomas Howard about his book chance or the dance heavily. Bon Hoffer talks about cheap, grace famously. He talks business idea that you can miss apprehend the idea of grace and treated as though it's nothing when in fact, it costs the blood of God the death of God. So that we could have this grace. And so the point he seems to be making is that if you do not respond in exalting way filled with gratitude to do anything you can to be closer to this. God who has done this for you? Then clearly you're not even aware that he's done it for you. Which is to say you have not apprehended the grace. And so the grace is not yours because to apprehend it is naturally to have to respond to want to feed the poor and to help people and to serve God. In other words to wanna make God happy by blessing his creatures. And and so so again, it's kind of a conundrum the idea of grades. But it gets closer to what you're saying gracious. The usual. Maybe the easy off the cuff notion of grace. It's well you mean. Can I get a freebie UP? Well, in one sense profound. The is a freebie. You can't make it yourself, and your, however, there's gonna be blood, sweat, and tears if you will there may be on route to their I mean crossing the desert or rowing your way across the north sear what whatever metaphor you one. It's it's not going to be easy. However, it's gonna be it's gonna be exactly analogous to athletic training or anything like that. You know, you're not gonna be able to one hundred yard dash in nothing flat without some sweat some. Back here in the afternoons. Practice since. Well, I saw photo in the other room earlier of you with Malcolm Muggeridge, he was in was he in this house or in the house, but you spend time with him. He's spent time with us. I guess he stayed with us for a while. He wasn't it. Stay with you forever. A lot of people won't know who he is. And of course, a lot of people will say, wow, you spend time with Malcolm Muggeridge Muggeridge is particularly interesting character. Do you? Remember, how you came to know him or can you can you tell our audience who he was if loveless were here she gone backstage. He was a he was a journalist doesn't do him Justice. No. I mean, he was he was a figure during the twentieth century British. A celebrated journalist is celebrated man of letters yet. We can say elevated matter butters funny. I was gonna say funny as hell funniest heaven. I mean, he didn't know at its punch. He probably was the editor. Punch as he wasn't something was wrong. But I suspect he was probably when he spent days, or we, you know, we spent the whole time laughing. You know that was after obviously after he'd become a Christian and after he'd become probably wasn't that. Yeah. Yeah. I don't think we know him before he was a believer. Yeah. Well, his big it was big news. When Malcolm Muggeridge. Yeah. Became a Christian. I think I mean, maybe some people know him because he he's the man who introduced the world to a tiny Albanian. None called Mother Theresa. We wouldn't know about Mother Teresa if not from Muggeridge made that film about her write something beautiful for God is the title, but Muggeridge was a man of letters. And I'm not sure what it was. Maybe you remember that led him to faith the trajectory. If my flight toward faith or something what is it? I can't give you a day by day sequence of it because it was all of grace, you might say, although that wouldn't have been his language. But I know that from talking to him he he he was hesitant about what God used finally bundled him along toward toward real understanding of Christianity and the faith and so that can become a pro. I mean that has been a problem. I would say for let's say evangelical Christians is they they come up with a paradigm actually Cureton Jonathan Edwards and company were they were famous for this that they would have to have your story conversion, and they said an incredibly high bar unless you had this conversion story. And so people feel that almost like they have to make one up if they don't have one now. And so when people ask people like Muggeridge were were myself. So when did you become a Christian, if it doesn't fit a perfect kind of, you know, the sawdust trail experience tackling people don't know what to make of it. But your experience. I mean, you grew up as a Christian. There's no question was there moment. At age five that you remember or know just to make sure as a kid, I probably a thousand times as Jesus come into my heart just in case and just to be sure, right? And were you ties as a child? Yes. Because we were pissed cappelli. Evangelical of his billions, you were I was baptized as an infant sprinkle. I didn't know that your father was an Episcopalian, I thought that you pale. I had myself technically. No. But but when I was small when they were first married, they went to reform to fiscal church. Philadelphia. What was the name of the church the trauma, but they sort of moved away from that into more fundamentalism and evangelical there. Yeah. Their eventual steps locale or plus American fundamentalism, but neither my my mother had been raised if his companion and my father had been raised a Presbyterian. And they they were, but they both had an evangelical story, you might say, you tell of really coming understand the faith seething. She's says savior. For some people. It's just much more complicated. And so he's yes. Yes, folks, you've been listening to my Socrates in the city interview with the great Thomas Howard, the author of chance or the dance..
