So she gleaned in the field until even and beat out into she had what she had gleaned and she had a bushel of barley.

Fresh "Naomi" from Born to Win
"US online at born to win dot net Once upon a time, a man, his wife and two sons were forced to leave their home and live in a nearby country because of a severe family in their homeland. His sons married young maidens in the new land, and they might well have prospered. There is a family except for the fact that the father fell sick and died and later, his two sons died as well, leaving the three women destitute and alone. And it's hard enough for women who are left without their men in the modern world, generally speaking at a sure road to poverty for them, especially if they have Children. In that world. It was far worse than it is today. The mother's name was Naomi. And after considering her situation, she decided that it would be a lot better for her to go back home near what family she may have there and and that she could fare better, perhaps at home that she would in a foreign land. The two girls were named Ruth and or PPA, and now let me try to send them home to their own families, You know, go on, but things will be better for you there. I haven't got any more sons and I don't have anything and she tried basically to to send the girls back. Or to return to her family. But Ruth refused to leave Naomi and her refusal Is one of the most beautiful passages in all of literature. And I would almost bet that you have heard it. It's found in Ruth, the first chapter in verse, 16. Ruth said to Naomi. Entreat me not to leave you. Or to return from following after you. For whether Val Ghost I will go whether thou largest I were large. Your people will be my people and your God. My God. Where you die. I will die. And there will I be buried. The Lord do so to me and more also, if anything but death part you And me. It's interesting that this has made it into a lot of wedding ceremony. See till death do us part and it's actually between a mother and a daughter in law in this case, not really between a man and his wife, but it is really a beautifully worded statement of loyalty. The two women return to the land of Israel together and settle down to live a life of quiet poverty. The book, by the Way, is named after Ruth. But there are two heroes in this book. One is Ruth. And the other is a man. A real man, a quite noble man at that. And I don't merely mean in terms of rank. His name was Boaz. And they had a customer in Israel in those days that poor people were allowed to go into the fields and to glean the grain that fell to the ground and the harvesting process. That a man who actually sent his servants out to glean every last grain. Every last stalk out of his field was considered stingy. They were supposed to leave the corners of the field and leave any grain that fell on the ground so that poor people could come and pick it up and take it home and would have something to eat. It's a kind of a welfare situation, except for the fact that the people actually had to get up and go get it. Nobody was required to actually take it to them. So, Ruth said to Naomi, Let me go to the field and glean ears of corn. After him on his side, I shall phone Greece. And she said, gave her permission go my daughter. So Ruth is taking off to find a field where she can glean behind the reefers and bring home some grain for her and her mother in law. So she went out and gleaned in the field after the reapers and it was by the surest accident, I suppose that she lit on the field part of the field. It belonged to Boaz, who was one of the kindred of her ex husband. And behold, Boaz came from Bethlehem instead of the reapers. Good morning, gents. The Lord be with you. And they said the Lord bless you. And he said to the guys Who's that girl over there? Pointing at Ruth. And the servant that was the boss man said. It's the more by this damn soul that came back here with Naomi out of the country of Moab. She asked. Do, she says, I pray let me glean and gather after the reapers among the sheaves. So she came and has continued from the morning until now. She worked hard. She just took a little break in the house. Has won over to Ruth and said. Listen, my daughter Don't go green. Another field. Don't go from here. You stay here fast by my girls. Let your eyes be on the field that they do Reap you go after them. I have charged the young man that they will not touch you. When you're a thirst, you go right over there to the vessels and drink what the young men have drawn. Well, this was really unusual treatment for a stranger in the field, and she fell on her face and bowed herself to the ground and said, Why have I found Grace in your eyes that you should take knowledge of me? I am a stranger. Now You've got to understand something here. She was a very different kind of person from the Israelites. She was a more bite, and the more bites had very often been in very bad grace in Israel. They were. It was a certain racism that was involved in it. I don't think the color differentiation was that great, But it was perhaps some Bo has answered and said this It has been fully showed me. All that you have done to your mother in law since the death of your husband. I know the whole story. I know how you left your father. How you left your mother, How you left the land of your nativity and you have come onto a people which you never knew before now. The Lord Recompense your work and a full reward be given to you of the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings you are come to trust. Now, This is not just some idealistic gas that Boaz is spouting here. He's not just talking about some vague spiritual protection from Almighty God and the Wings of God. To Ruth, at this moment of time. Looked an awful lot like Bo s. Boaz was the product of a system. System in which the priests of God taught the men of God. The law. The long pervaded their life The law had to do with how widows are to be treated. It had to do with how poor people are to be taken care of. It had to do with the responsibilities of a man for his family, his relationships, the responsibility of inheritances and how they went forward. It was a complete system handed to Israel by God. And when one came to live in Israel, one came trusting under the wings of God. Then, she said. Let me find favoring your side. My lord, for you have comforted me and that you have spoken, friendly to your handmade though I be not like under one of your hand maids. Notice. It wasn't that she just wasn't one of his Handmaid's. She wasn't like them. She was a more bite. And Paul has said to her at meal time You come here and eat of the bread. And dip your morsel in the vinegar, and she sat beside the reapers and he reached her parched corn, and she ate and was sufficed and was left. And when she was risen up to glean Boaz turned to his.

Japan's Naomi Osaka 'Not Sure' Olympics Should Happen as Doubts Grow
"Haven't talked jane at all about the olympics. And i'm like totally like jumped like rearing to go about the olympics Obviously you know they were pushed back a year because we're at a pandemic and that costs something in the neighborhood of nineteen billion dollars or something insane like that And they are come hell or high water going ahead with the olympics in tokyo this summer despite the fact that something like eighty percent of the country does not want the olympics to happen and and this is the number that kills me because japan handled the initial cova outbreak so well only two percent of their population has been vaccinated and now all these people from all over.

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

Who don't understand over difference between american liberty and china they it's just not on his wavelength and so he's pushing and pushing with such an outrageous amount of money and power the question and maybe we'll get to that As we continue for me is how it can be the people who went to the same schools that we did that are running the new york times and all these places that they are not tuned to what we're tuned to that they are not saying.

Interview with Tuvia Tenenbom
"He's my absolute pleasure to welcome back to johnny gould's jewish state to via tenenbaum. Absolute pleasure to be with you again. You know you are a true free speech. Doyenne and for this particular podcast. I think it's the first thing verson ground rules as you can smoke. That's the first thing eight you're wanting to billion and the second thing is you truly opened my eyes to my own. I think tolerance of jew hate when we first met two years ago thinking because before that time you know. I've been conditioned i think in growing up in the uk in school where they're only three jewish kids to tolerate the what they call politely banter works erm you would call anti semitism and it did overstretched itself from time to time and i think that is a sort of shall we say looking for a better word but would have jimmy cued. I think from a lot of british people. And i think that's what you sean likes this book. Which is finally out in english. That's why it's called the tame taming of the ju. it's not just a take on shakespeare. It's the taming of the jewel. I mean giuseppe. Funding indicated biden. Own amazing to me edo deny or tolerate and sometimes joined together. Fox's would there accuse us we'd the hate us. That was shocking. I mean the fell. Shocking was citizen. This admit is imminent burden. I didn't expect it. I went to britain. Because i'm a tinto naomi's love english data. I said okay. My published opportunity mean sister. Go anywhere you want whatever you would like to go is i like to go to britain. I like to go. i like to see did out. I mean zane ought to do it better than anybody else. That's what i remember. And then the was black seed said. Okay i'll see you two belting stone which one stone i didn't expect anti-semitism and i didn't expect such a contaminating such a contagious. Such deepen. they semitism so deeply rooted. You know it on an island katelyn or in england which is the most important of course a bit of the uk but it was a frightening to sit and what is more fighting. Wants to see the basically. I'll kind of collaborating. Sometimes they had to fight jewish lead. Doesn't seem like law. Your people told me this and that your people told me i interviewed. People not told me are available. The life is a horrible thing so this is the common people and it took time. Tim's admitted but one that gate open has had them open and started talking. Honestly say to me you know. How many times have been told delta jew oh you know let us all kinds of dips and it's like amazing much so and little kits in manchester of hasidic. The auto talks kits in manchester and london will have had acts pelted them only storm so whatever it is i mean is a big addictiveness and we talked to jewish leaders saying even when the time used to say anything against wirelessly well owning two positions if to say one wowed against jimmy coleman only now's opt in the position you know as it became hewison you wayne saying that a one is easy allies. That are not going to be selected you know in a volume label for example district. Tina zero willing to say it was piping to see that one of the most disturbing rates. I think of british antisemitism and this might go around the world as well is. There is a sort of dog whistle so that someone can maintain that they're not anti semitic so someone who is an influence on me. Extreme left and concise something assiduously continuously hard left without. Referencing jews but then. His followers commend dog whistle a really serious anti semitic sort of betrayal of what they think themselves. I'm using an example of a very powerful voice. Which is john bishop. Who has who has three and a half million followers. He prostrate himself in front of ken loach on twitter. He said all this great interpreted it was as though he transferred the word. A jeremy corbyn for ken loach. I would kneel before him. And then if i couldn't anymore i prostrate myself in front of him which set off a huge torrent of jew hate and of course he a month ago on holocaust memorial day. Couldn't believe the terrible tragedies and then this is where the problems lie and that's an eye opener i think for british choosier surprising the anti-semites i mean disgust for britain and coastal are the places. You know that they took very nicely. Buddy dead jews in world war cho- you knows such nice people bubble and so bad and let's give some money to memorize them and and an make any fence you know maybe even endows of comments may be whatever it is making events you know in in a beautiful place to memorize their juice by the juice living was you know i mean it's like at all let's let you know what's album changes on the plane and of course the cord is a polish time. The code is is the stinian am am by itself.

"Welcome back. I'm talking to naomi wolf Naomi you have reissued Your two thousand and seven book. The end of america letters of warning to young patriot. I wanna talk more about that. But i want you to finish your point that there are some brave scientists and others who were speaking logically and they're down there being told shut up. This is the narrative. Shut up. you don't trailing. I me as an american. It's so offensive. When people tell you to shut up. I always say that's a hint that they are afraid of what you might say so. It's very very concerning. And by the way in addition to the millions from these special shows that i described there's a billion dollars in the stimulus. Bill that just passed a for covid education and vaccine education Which is also going to community groups to media you know so a huge incentive to silence people like me and the brave side is like who signed it. Great barrington declaration that i mentioned before the break But basically what what that. Peer reviewed science in a number of very craziest whistle blowers are trying to let people know. Is that there are huge flaws in this narrative the pcr tests Are hito generate false. Positives at scale when they're run to high There's problems would have. Data are presented There's a you know as i mentioned incentives to not cover y- solutions or ways to protect yourself vitamin d ivermectin which they used in india. These are all marginalized and sidelined as kind of conspiracy theories. You're a crank bet. A very wealthy i i was just in texas recently. I'm going back. But i the number of people and i got mixed mixed messages. But some folks were saying Ivermectin something else Hydrochloric these are effective. And then you talk to other people and not only do they papu the idea but they act sort of like That's the there are no studies. There's there's nothing and i thought we've never lived at a time where it's so difficult to make sense of the of the information. So is it your sense that i mean my sense is that once trump said hydrochloric was good. Everyone lost their minds and said whatever he says he's evil and we have to crush that which is pretty gross. When you're talking about the wives of human beings in america that we don't care about the reality of them we care about opposing anything that trump says. I mean that that's how i read it.

I sent you a copy of my book in which i talk about everything in my life up until by twenty fifth birthday the yale stuff is in there and i realized that you are obliquely referred to did you. I i noticed you notice that i did it cavite. Who was our class day speaker in one thousand nine hundred four who became a friend in the last twenty years but he he gave some speech. I was so freaked out by what i had just been through that. I don't think. I caught more than a a tenth of whatever it was that he was saying so. I wasn't listening but someone in the audience named naomi wolf took issue with some of the things he said wrote about it and so all these years later i think he he has a.

I think. if <Speech_Female> you're hopeless <Speech_Female> you give up. Obviously <Speech_Female> there are these maintenance <Speech_Female> what you think everything is <Speech_Female> is so hostile <Speech_Female> insane miserable <Speech_Female> unlike you think a <Speech_Female> how and things <Speech_Female> how can the office <Speech_Female> thickness is going to be <Speech_Female> very acceptable. <Speech_Female> At how how <Speech_Female> a people suffering this <Speech_Female> much and <Speech_Female> it's you know <Speech_Female> it just allowed <Speech_Female> to happen. <Speech_Female> Yeah so they're <Speech_Female> all these moments. But i <Speech_Female> think i think <Speech_Female> we've got to be hopeful. <Speech_Female> The <Speech_Female> this can be happy. <Speech_Female> Unify <Speech_Female> place where everyone <Speech_Female> feels like <Speech_Female> they can belong <Speech_Female> than in. That's how i <Speech_Female> love to see this this country <Speech_Female> anyway and <Speech_Female> i think yeah <Speech_Female> in a practical way. You've <Speech_Female> got to believe it's possible. <Speech_Female> Answer <Speech_Female> of what's what's that <Speech_Female> in <Speech_Female> Just give up otherwise <Speech_Female> otherwise <Speech_Female> you will just. It will <Speech_Female> just fall <Speech_Female> into misery <Speech_Female> and <Speech_Female> slightly self-fulfilling. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> Yeah so <Speech_Male> i think. <Speech_Female> You've got <SpeakerChange> to be hopeful. <Speech_Female> Well <Speech_Female> certainly. this book <Speech_Female> gives us reason <Speech_Female> to be mahameed. <Silence> Thank you so much. <Speech_Female> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> Thank you so much for having <Speech_Music_Male> me.

"I mean i heard this yesterday from someone. I was chatting with on the left They they watch. Ntr cnn read the new york times. These are heavily lease two out of three funded by the bill and melinda gates foundation. And so if they have bad science about how terrifying everything is in bad signs about mission of whereas people like me. I'm getting you know information from many many sources and the peer reviewed science. So i know that you're in no danger outside and you're not putting well some teacher outside And unfortunately we have to start talking to another and looking at primary sources to get out of this hysteria but it is his urine is being weaponized. I'm not saying there's not a real pandemic there is but we're coming out of it and some people are more endangered than others and weather. There's a pandemic or not as i keep seeing. The constitution does not have fine print for disconnected. be suspended. if there is a bad disease out there eric. I'm so sorry. I love talking to you. But i learned we. We want to honor your time. We have to get you back to continue the conversation. But i'm glad we've we've begun it. Naomi god bless. You will talk to you again soon. Thanks so much. Have a great day. Bye all right folks We had to say goodbye to naomi. Today is crazy. We're gonna be talking to john's miraculous in the next segment. But i'm glad i obviously Number of things that. I'm going to disagree with naomi. On including the way she characterized. What happened on january six. Because i still would maintain that everybody says x. y. happened and i'm simply not so clear on it It seems to me confusing. Frankly and the idea that everybody's putting it a certain way. But that's that's beside the point. What i was really talking about. Was the way people to use the cliche of our time. Weaponize certain things and the the optics of somebody dying and then you hear that they were killed by trump supporters. You know brained with a fire extinguisher. High completely untrue. -absolutely completely untrue. But the the message goes out and the next thing you know everybody's using that as their talking point and then when three weeks later a month later six weeks later the cnn and the new york times publish a retraction and then you find out nothing of the kind happened. the damage has been done anyway. We're going to. We're going to go to break. We'll be back with john's near ac. Don't go away Rhys ma. You marry music mazda. C.

"I use it it works. Check it out folks talking to naomi wolf yes to hop off for a board meeting. We we respect that we have no choice. We respect it. We're going to naomi first of all. Let me say it's really enjoyable to talk to you and to hear you talking about this stuff. I think it's it's really healthy. And i have always longed to have conversations like this it becomes Very very difficult. But i think as things go crazy there are people whose commonsense and fundamental values just pop up. And you say we. We've got it. We've got to deal with this when you talked about incitement. I really saw the january. Sixth thing as like the reichstag fire. I thought what. I didn't even know what was happening. And i thought so. Somebody was killed and i thought. Why do we need to discuss that. I don't know anybody who's pro murder. I don't know anybody who says that's okay. But we're acting as though eighty million americans who who were on the wrong side of election are good with that. And i just thought i can't believe i'm hearing this from mainstream media. I just expect better of my fellow americans. Well i mean that gets really complicated. I agree that as i keep saying. There is a difference between crimes and inciting violence right actual hat we have laws against it. versus political views That said your guy you know. President trump did not do himself the world any favors by not at a time of great fear and destruction. I mean those scenes of people you know assailing are capital that should never happen in america. And what what democrats liberals want. Here's your team saying. Just like say no. This is not okay. Cancel culture suppression is not okay You know silencing conservatives monarchy we want to hear our president saying get out of there this is not patriotism. This is not a leave our leaders to do their work. you know. This is not america having said that as a former political consultants interrupted. I get this out. I recognize that that attack gave the democrats. A golden opportunity. I mean political consultants always make use of crises. Piano opt to understand this. They exploit them explain them and so of course they're going to take that horrible horrible deviation from the rule of law that horrible assault that scary a time and use it to paint all conservatives as crazy people that said. That's a scary thing to do. It's exactly like during the bush years when bush was trying to say environmentalists. Were terrorists and you know anyone who supported you know rights. Muslims were terrorists. I mean that kind of metastasized criminalising ideas is what tyrants traded you. Well it's a. We have to find more time to talk about this because this is just so important so valuable to hear from you. I want to say that i. I'm amazed at the compliance of american citizens. Usually in places like manhattan. Where i live where they kind of. I mean the whole mask thing blows my mind. I was getting off. I was getting on a ski lift. You know in the middle of nowhere and somebody barked at me. That i need to put my mask on and i just thought if you want to know why. Young germans behaved that way. All you need to do is ask. Why would a young american running ski-lift behave this way. Because someone told him he better make sure people wear their masks but it was just a creepy creepy moment for me. I thought there's no common sense. There's no reason for me to be wearing a mask right now but everybody seems to be. You know you better do it or you're unpatriotic it's there's a hysteria look. Unfortunately we live in two tribes now and people in my tribe..

Andy becker which we will get a two. We're so glad you're here. I want to ask you when. I emailed you about doing forever. Thirty five house like we talk about self care and wellness. And you're very nice. You're like i'll totally do it. But i don't know if i have enough of a self care and you didn't say these exact words you were like have one. Lotion am intrigued by juice. Cleanses exactly So i would love to will want. I wanna know what lotion and also what about juice. Cleanses intrigues you. But what what is self care for you. Is it something that you feel like you have and you also talked about it in your stand up. Well this is very difficult was also when you say like wellness.

Aw chunky chunky sweater chunky sweater seventy degree day. That's what i'm wearing. That's always like house. Like i have nothing that compares sort of what i lack is diligence and willpower. And so when it comes to self care stuff always feel like i don't. There's certain things i do. That soothes me. it's the best for me and that's why i wonder why and sometimes the line between how. How long can i do this. Or how long. Can i lean into this or allow myself to do this before. It's really not actually helpful in any way you know. 'cause i watched so in my self care stuff centers on food but it's usually good food meaning Not healthy food food as a reward and his comfort. That's its own issue. We can talk about it with my clothing. And then i can no longer fit and then also i watch a lot of like procedural and true crime shows because they always have before.

"When Naomi remains faithful there is something greater that God has for her in the end. and. Though we find our days. We find dark times. We find situations. We find ourselves in situations that seem like there is no hope. There is nothing to look forward to. Like every, turn turns in to. Turn. Again. We must remain faithful that God knows how to deal with these things and God is bringing us through. These dark days are different. But if we do. The Lord has a reward awaiting on the other side. And that's the promise that God in. Christ makes teaching everyone of us. He makes us because we need that promise because we need that reassurance. And when the days are dark, we need that reassurance from one another. We need a roof the stand beside us to clean to us even when the leaves. We need someone to help us to carry on. Even when things are going horribly. And God is there for US And so is our family. And we're going to continue. Looking forward. As we talk about Ruth and we talk about Boas and we talk about the relationship that develops and Naomi situation here and how it is going to change and how it's going to grow. But. Like every good story Naomi's begins. With some really bad news, but it becomes something more something greater so much so. That she actually brings an individual into the line. Ruth probably sounds familiar to you.

How your personality is like how how you handle criticism and things like that, but Definitely, it's something that you can work on. It's not it's not something that is like. Oh, I was born in the that you can you can. I know it because I had to do it myself. You just gotTa be Kinda. beat. A person keeps making the same mistake as you won't go far. Yeah, exactly okay number two the number two what I have here. I wrote hyperfocused practice sessions. I, don't say it in a business, not in her being hyper focus or anything I. Say if we're GonNa work on something, if women comes in with a plans like hey, we're going to work on this today. We're GONNA spend probably all the time. Working on that and not try to cram in too many things I've recession. You know what I mean say. We're going to work on sizes. We're GONNA work a lot sizes today. It's okay to not hit crosswords down the line for for a day, so we do that a lot I. Think Women Wing as a great coach and he plans you know everything ahead, and we come in. We make adjustments, and obviously depending on how things are going, but but he's. He does a tremendous job at data like Kinda. Keeping the focus at a certain thing for for a good amount of time, but whatever he wants to work on that day or that week and I think with athletes like Naomi when you do that for you don't have to do it for. Long periods of time. We're not going to work on something for a month. She's GonNa be. She's GonNa. Get it after you know two three days. So that's very eye opening things sometimes..

"Senators they asked me to talk about stuff and talk to other women to empower empower them. They told me we didn't even think you were married to a man. We just thought you release Byan so it's okay point. I didn't need to say anything but I think the probably generalizing slightly more tolerant in Berlin than of course that's world suburbans. Don't care Germans don't care as long as you do your work and they accepted me. They said No. We thought you release been so so so tell us a little bit about your film. Sir Is because I've just been very lucky to see one of your fulfills which I have to say was incredibly harrowing serving and it's about young lesbians being murdered in Namibia because of their sexuality and that is going on right. Yes that is definitely something thing that's going on and I choose. I chose this whole theme because visibility of Lesbians in Namibia is up two zero zero and people are only starting now to say okay. My my daughter is different. It's okay stuff like that the lesbians. ESPN sneaking around in secret to meet each other part goes do get murdered every week. Everyday everyday they get raped. And this is psycho correctively. It's called corrective rape on one sense that they get raped because because they lesbian so through get them proper. Whatever supposedly supposedly and then there are the gender-based violence just because if someone if people notice that you are closer to the girls also get killed in what is really horrifying? It's not just killing. It's really humiliating. It's demeaning it's killing it's it's cutting throat off its raping and I With My Fourth Surfing. I really chose this whole rubbish dump because in Serbia a lot of the girls are found by places like this with people who clean up all the have to put things away and then certainly a body the and then they have to figure out who this is and stuff and they told me is is horrified. Well after say I watched the film about an hour ago and I found it. Utterly horrifying is almost something. That's fantastic was wrong word but it seems so other worldly it just seems like how can let's be happening and then you'll telling me the lesbians big murdered a weekly basis for their sexuality not for any other reason no no no it. Is the sexuality thing and of course us. There is a big corruption. I think everybody knows if people are poor. People are trying to get something from other people. Okay I'M GONNA older gun against your head give me give me give me of course it is. The there is also a lot of corruption but when it comes to women and when it comes to girls girls get raped because a raped and killed because of who they laugh absolutely terrified and so do women ever come old guy. Yeah there are lots in the area Lee immobilizing themselves. They were very proud to hit the second pride parade now fifty Lesbians Walking and they actually got a lot of the community people. It wasn't this was about a hundred people. I was so sad that I wasn't there because it is really something that's going on. The actually also did the CEA something like a slut Marshall these these things where they the girls put on the short. What skirts and say you can't just write me because I do this? And they were actually women African women in Casserole to them and said how can you do this. I have to tell my kids in the car that you walking around. Let's go put some clothes on you. That's why you get raped. That's why you do other things stuff like that so it is it. It is the thing in the heads of people that that you need to change. And I'm trying to to give people this idea to show them it. Look it. Is there what it sounds like. It's changing incredibly slowly. Because the other interesting thing you said was actually cast some real lesbians from Namibia In and they were happy to come forward they were happy to come forward. They said No. This is cool. There's nothing like this I wanNA play. I WANNA play. They were at the lady was casting said there was so many girls we couldn't these goods was so great. They all just wanted to be part of it so it was me. It was heartwarming. Because we were standing on the set and talking about these things in these girls were just telling. Oh this is so true only we so happy. Be that you doing this and that we can be seen if people wanted to see your films what they're called and whether confront them. It's called a center series despite its not online at the moment because I'm doing a festival run and after that I'm GonNa be on tallow films in the US a platform for lesbian spe- in finance and the other woman thing was Who's funded considering Lesbians in Namibia put money behind the Namibian the film commission. I must say it's a long journey I made a four. We have three other films. I produced it myself about this theme. I'm about especially lesbians domestic violence and stuff like that. I always try and put together but always say this mainly spin theme there in. I couldn't get get them to sponsor I went to the belly. Nala twice where they were but they had a lot of guys was ding main. Of course this big African men standing And then I want to hear funding for lesbian for myself people funding Namibian Fulham's you coming to Berlin. You're saying you know maybe I'm maybe why can't you find me. And I think S- people started changing and when I went to visit them again before they gave the funding. There was a woman in the team and I made sure that I caught. They were upset that I made an excellent point and I said to you here for a movie i the the whole thing and I am so happy about that and they now so happy that I'm taking it all over. The voice is great and so you know an atom proud sort of lesbian filmmaker. So you walk into that conversation with you. I will have because I have. I've been they put me on the front page of one or two big newspapers as someone writing about lesbians in. Maybe I was speak on the front page. Yeah and I asked my brother in law so what was the reaction of the family said. No one is talking about and that's the thing New don't talk about what's happening and that's what I'm doing I'm talking about what's happening behind. Closed doors her mold breaker but you will have that session I it will. I'm getting I I've planned to do it anyway. Last year I was shooting so I thought no. Let's not talk about these things. I went down there. I normally try and go home from Berlin once. Let's see here and I think I'm going to go in Christmas but I'm not sure if this is a conversation for Christmas but I think so but I'm feeling good with myself at the moment and I can just encourage goes to who stand up and decide for themselves and say oh. This is how I feel this way I am and I think this is. This is the most empowering thing what you could do is listen back to my podcast. Listen to loads of examples of other people have had that conversation with their parents to say I was go and useful for. You think I'm GonNa do that but I think I also have to have a whole different approach because of the soldiers thing I will normally normally at this stage inch`Allah say you've got new advice for other people. I'm done but as someone that hasn't fully done a would you have any thing that you wish she could've told hold your younger self. I think I would have told my sixteen year old. Now you like this girl you just go and ask her out and don't be scared. What family say what your parents will say heaven? Look what's happening and you live could have been very different. I think my life could have been really different on the side when it comes to sexual experience in relationships. I'm very careful with relationships relationships. I duNno I wanted to be special assistant. I love what I love about you. All I can tell you that you are just came going through what I went through what I was like seventeen eighteen.

"Is a podcast about one of the most important conversations. If your life I'm go swell from someone that came out a bit later in life. She's called name H.. Lives in Berlin where she works as a primary school teacher and filmmaker but she grew up in South Africa and the media. I actually interviewed her in Wales at the L.. I I music festival Malysz. Being a took me a while to get there. How long are we talking? I got divorce last year in July. Officially I've moved out to three years before I was married. Twenty three years to a man. It was a thing of noticing after the five seven years. Already that it that it didn't work. We tried to keep everything together because with two kids. Two lovely kids. They grown up now they great and I think we stayed together because of that and I didn't want to come out sort of DEL everybody. It was difficult. It took a while for me to find myself. I had a problem figuring out who I am. Why don't I feel feel good with myself and I always try to please other people and and things like that now realize also also from growing up so I grew up in a very Christian African Wayne? So where were you growing up. I grew up in half in Namibia in half off in South Africa and my dad because he is a preacher. We moved around a lot. And he's a preacher so I cannot be there saying saying I like girls but I did want to do more things with them and everybody told me you. We almost always the weird one she. My parents actually back to me when high school was finished. We look for someone so that you can go to the farewell party because I didn't WanNa go hidden and he boy was a big thing ahead to go and they actually ask someone from Church Ski and I went with one of the sweet guys from Church and and you remember this dress my mom mate for me and so that I can go there but it wasn't really wasn't me so I'm guessing if you will dot was a preacher. Sure he was very much against. I'm trying to say that is talk about over. My dead never talked I grew up in a community where you do not talk about these things squirrels. especially you don't see and you just do what you told to do. And I don't even think they know really that I- Melissa Lispier Yeah. My mom died. They they know that I make these movies. But I think it's more case of on Omb as the movie make. It's not a case like she is a lesbian. And I just have my brother in law. WHO's the one who really stand behind me? And he knows it and even told me. Don't tell your sister because she might not accept it so well or you might not be able to talk about it and I'm still at that point so you haven't told you sister asking old you all of you. You literally came out yourself. Last year I came out to myself about out. I think last year or the year before I sort of started as soon as I moved out I couldn't take my marriage anymore. It wasn't doesn't that we had fights or things like that and my ex even told me you know what I think you realize because this is not working we tried everything everything. I feel guilty because of this out Christian upbringing I feel guilty because I'm the woman I'm supposed to make things work and have things stand behind everybody in see that everything works out but I couldn't take it anymore in one night. I just said stop. I can't do this anymore. And then he got a he got another woman Was a big thing. Anyway it was already over with me and I said I'm moving out so I actually did something anti-christian anti-african I moved out instead of men. So how'd you buy me asking. How'd you fifty three? So you really didn't come out to your about fifty one. That's a long. That's a long time to how Tom I MUSC- I did a lot of therapy when I moved out even before I came to a point where I wasn't satisfied with with myself I felt like I needed to find myself and it took awhile. It's still taking the journal isn't business a journey it's still taking and that's why for me sometimes talking about these things I'm not sure always okay. How people okay? She says she's lesbian and she she was married. She's not saying and stuff like that. But I find a vein Clinton place through my mind riding and I think at all I'm a rider. I always I always write about women's stories and I started the serious about this lesbian couple. WHO stands up for everybody else now? I'm doing this whole thing. Giving People Mumina I'm Anna Voice to speak up even though I'm sometimes also have some problems with that but I'm getting there I'm getting your your your voice voice for for the people that aren't I'm really the I'm trying to be the voice and I feel very happy when I reach at least one or two women especially Shirley from my community or from my age group from where I grew up who realize okay I can say what I want to say. I can be see what I wanted to be. I don't have to stand behind a man I can just be who I am. So what was the conversation. Light them when you had to turn around to your husband and say i. I am leaving an ice because I'm a lesbian unlimited. I'm a lesbian. He figured it out. I just said I'm leaving. It is telling me you know what your way Discount be and of course the divorce men women thing and fine and I really thought the problem. It's just me it's just me. It just took a while for me to figure out that it's not me. It's not that I did something wrong. It's just the way I am and and the sooner I started realizing it the better I feel and I must say the sooner. I realized that I accept myself. More Seattle AH with a no signs before then when you were growing up teenager. Did you ever feel attracted to other women fairly directed to a lot of girls but I always on Omi table getaway disease a friend just you can go with it and there was nothing like that. When I grew up I grew up really in an African Community? When when you're a girl and you want to play or visit the it's okay? It's not a case of you. Want to be more always. I remember I had a feel friends girlfriends that I always wanted to. I always wanted to see where they are. But I wasn't allowed to an Akron. We go to church. You can say hi and then it's okay and stuff like that when I grew up. Yeah so I guess it was. A difficult conversation was telling when your children did you tell them they figured it my kids. My son is nineteen. My daughter's twenty two now. Yeah and I I think they figured it out the whole thing. 'cause I'm always talking about it and they the ones who come visit me and asking. I was telling them about this festival. Are you going. Let South did they encourage you to go. I think so it because I've been We separated now two years now. The big thing for me is i. I think it's the process of I finding myself so that you haven't haven't explored having a girlfriend. No Wow okay you'll be the first lesbian. Love incident actually. Hasn't you haven't had to go. You're still waiting. Yeah she's she's in front of a face. Why is that embarrassing? The embarrassing some people are just slow developers. You you come into it later in life I think I am but I'm I realized that I am. I actually feel proud about it. Yeah I'm starting adding to say it also known wherever I go and so but I haven't actually like a lot of the conversations. Young Girls. have their parents wins or family. Sit Down and say okay. People I m lesbian. I haven't done that so I still have to go to Namibia. Maybe A and maybe sit down. I've been putting that conversation of going there and seeing I'm doing this is this is it and so but I think I think I'm slowly getting there. It's almost like your work is outing you as an. It's kind of doing it four Ileana until this conversation. 'cause you're making the people in Balloon Sept- accept me as lesbian immediately. The One lady. I work a lot in the women..
