With Amazon music of all, you need get tens of millions of songs, download the Amazon music app today. Thank you for joining me today. I'm Debbie Miller on mover improve, and I want to talk today about, do you really wanna buy a vacation home? Are you somebody who thinks about owning a place to get away from it all, like a cabin in the woods or living lakeside or beach bungalow? Well, I'm going to talk about what's involved with doing that. There are several things that I want you to consider. So if you've got a pen, pencil, pen and paper, the get ready to write Stu. Just remember if you're buying a second home as an investment, not just for vacations less than two weeks a year. The banks will treat you differently. You'll have a higher mortgage rate you'll need to have at least three percent is down payment. Now, if you have equity in your current home, you may want to consider getting a he locked or home equity. Line of credit was a. He lock allows you to get up to as much as eighty five percent of your primary homes appraised value, minus the balance on your current mortgage. So. If your house's appraised at nine hundred thousand and you have a four hundred thousand dollar mortgage, you have five hundred thousand dollars to work with and borrow up to eighty five percents of that whether or not you want to use that money to or just a vacation home. And of course the percentage that you get will depend on your credit score, your credit history in your income, but do you like the idea of owning that particular home until you sell? Because each time you visit, there will be the same amenities again. And again, if you're the type of person who has a bit of the wander less than you when you -cation owning a second home may not work for you and that money may be spent in better spent in other ways learning how many days a year we they case in their the IRS has rules on that. So check with the CPA as part of your decision making process according to the national association of realtors, the average vacation property owner only plans to own for seven or eight years. Remember to maintenance on the property doesn't go away. You're taking care of your current home as well as another place, and it may be some distance away from your first male residents if you own of the beach, how far can you drive on short notice to board up the house in case of a hurricane? What about fires you rent out property? Well, you'll have to pay FIDA property management to company to oversee the cleaning in between guests as well as repairs or replacements that need to be made if something breaks and gets damaged, and you can be sure that it will and don't forget to factor in the property taxes. Real estate taxes vary from location to location. You may pay a lot. You may pay a little. We may pay none. Ask yourself if you really need -cation property, will it improve your life? What kind of lifestyle you want to have when they caisson what's condo with lots of amenities rather than a single family home would be best if you buy at the beach, one of the costs for flood insurance and what will happen if the market adjusts downwards occasion, homes are usually hard hit in a down market as people unload them. I even if you inherited a property, it will need upkeep and perhaps more than you bargained for. If it's an older home there, what happens to the house in the off season? Where else? Eating, Jackson Hole Wyoming may be great, but can you rented out the rest of the year, the ocean in the winter isn't it's appealing to people as it is in the summer. So what other options are there? Well, you could go Airbnb the r. b. o. timeshares resorts managed by big name hotel chains like Mariott west. To allow you to patient in various places of your choosing. You could also have shared ownership with others on a small scale, you and several others or one other couple were together and by something jointly, then you agree to share expenses split up year according to an agreed upon schedule. This can work out as long as everybody pitches in and contributes their fair share. But if someone loses their job or guys or besides not that ship in anymore, what happens to the property. Is he go this route assure you have an attorney apparen- ironclad agreement outlining all what if that might happen. Men don't forget to consider the cost of insurance utilities and maintenance. We need to be succumb owners insurance policy. So be sure it covers weather events like flood snow, hail fire as well as non weather events like someone breaking in and vandalizing still in from you. And of course you have to purchase the flood insurance. If you're near a large body of water, the ocean, for example, and you'll also want to consider purchasing a wind windstorm policy in case of a hurricane. Now, lenders require a number of these items. You might wanna check on prices before you move any further along the decision process in Californians will need to purchase earthquake insurance, and if you're renting to others, you'll need an where we call an umbrella insurance policy that offers protection. If a short term renter is injured in your home, or if the renter causes property damage during their stay. There is an insurance policy that's civic to vacation rental. So you wanna make sure you get several estimates as part of the decision making and utilities pay you tilles. And if it's a large home or many people can stay on one time, it's not unusual to have your abilities learn about eleven thousand dollars a year, and that's on top of the Tilleke costs to live in your personal residence. Now, how do you choose where to buy vision? Well, most people like to be maybe two to three, possibly four hours drive from their primary residence. And if the property is in a nature way or condo association, you need to make sure that are there restrictions on what the renter's can cannot do while they're there. For example, a boat usage like the type of boat the size of the boat is restricted if you're on a late, and if you've lived in a non HOA condo area, it's important to read through the rules as part of a decision making process. If you can live within the rules and you think renters can also live within the rules. That's great, but you, renters also have to sign off agreeing that they abide by those rules when they are they're. So your property manager will make sure to take care of that, but you need to provide the property manager with the documents that show what the rules are. A single family home. We'll have a higher purchase price along with higher maintenance costs in Tillich's. If you're comparing loss to those of a condo apartment, our town home and condo association, we'll charge you feed for their staff to maintain the exterior of the building in the grounds. Just be sure to look at the reserve funds, and that will be part of the budget and find out whether or not owners, neither fees on time. If many of the owners don't pay their fees on time, that can be a problem if it's like a condominium for example, or a townhouse because somebody's got to pay those maintenance these. And if they don't get paid than the maintenance stops. I found that in downmarket owners will often walk away from unit if they can't afford the monthly cost. Cement affects your bottom line because you somebody has to make up the difference so that the maintenance can continue. Now, if you're building a customer mule need to comply with area rules and regulations, so you want check those out before you start digging many local jurisdictions in HR ways, have strict rules about renting to tenants for less than thirty days that check that out too. Where she bought and how will you get there? Well, Cording to the national association of realtors in are more than eighty percent of AK, shin homebuyers, choose locations within driving distance where they currently live and of that number half of them choose properties and locations that were within fifty miles of their current president's as the closer it is the more likely you are to visit frequently. If you can get away for a weekend and only go out to from downtown to out to the mountains, you're more likely to visit more often. Are you going to rent it out? Most they case in homers don't run out their property, but if you think you'll have trouble making a mortgage payment, assuming that you don't pay cash and you want to choose a popular destination, where demand for short term rentals high, like he ocean or lake, or river, or mountain area. Is the property fit your lifestyle today, as well as tomorrow, a two or three story home with stairs may not suit you as you age and you may have troubled to me steps later on. So you wanna be sure that it can accommodate you when you're older or be able to redesign it to allow access throughout the house. Any beach homes are raised up to protect them from ocean tides. Stairs are inevitable. So you need to plan for a way to accommodate reaching all before in the home. So you can enjoy the view. Probably most important part is, can you afford it as financing your purchase, unless you're paying cash means you'll have to deal with a lender. As I said earlier, mortgage companies charge higher interest rates or have require higher down payments for vacation or second homes. Though you need to make sure you shop around for insurance and maintenance on the property. Buyers are excited about getting away to the new retreat, but don't forget the home. May eventually need a new roof or paint or yard work. And if your property is professionally managed, if you go that route manage company, awesome cock at twenty to fifty percent of the rental income. So if you take care of it, yourself, won't make sure you set aside at least two percents of the property's value each year for maintenance. If you want to expand sometime down the road, you need to study the local zoning walls to learn what panic can't dumb with the property and find out the local construction requirements as well as wetlands and other issues that may environmentally affect your purchase, the tax implications you need to sit down with the CPA ahead of time to discuss the ramifications of buying vacation home. Because if you rented out to others for longer than the IRS allows you need to declare the rental income on your tax forms and your CPA can discuss that in detail. Now you might say, or I didn't think that all this stuff Debbie, what should I do? I really want to take big Haitians, but I don't necessarily have to go to the same place all the time. Well, should you invest in a timeshare instead timeshares have had a bad reputation and the industry is trying to reform those misconceptions. You can either own a property by acquiring a DVD ownership of a condo or a house for a specified period of time. Each year or other deals involve buying an interval or intervals of of time at a resort without actually holding a deed to the property, regardless of which one you choose. He will pay maintenance these for management company to maintain the property. And that's usually on a yearly basis as a yearly fee, they may break it down and added to your two week or however long the twos to stay there. It is possible to trade two weeks in one location, for example, for two weeks in another spot. I have a plan to bought a timeshare with a major hotel chain, and they can choose they can have go to Las Vegas one year or California, or they can down to Florida. They. Can wherever the hotel has a site and has that timeslot available that you're interested in, that's what they can do. And it gives you a chance to travel around and visit other spots. You're not always stuff going to the same place, but the Federal Trade Commission warns that sellers typically get less than the regional price. They paid if they tried to sell the time share at a later date. So be careful in read the fine print closely because it can be a great way to pay for a front for future vacations, but have an attorney review the documents with you. And as I said earlier, you could also buy a property jointly with a friend or relative. Just the sure that relationship is good and how carefully crafted contract that spells out details of the partnership and stipulates exactly what will happen if either party wants out of deal. We're large majority of people buying -cation property is not a decision and their feel their money could be spent better elsewhere. You don't use the property enough to justify the costs though. Decide whether or not it would be better to invest that money in something else. Unless you're open and have lots of money to spend. Now, some of you have asked me about, should I buy property overseas out of the country because I may want to retire overseas out of the country while there are some points to think about when you're going this route. First of all, usually you can own overseas for much less than in the United States. Second, third, the lower cost of living, it's much cheaper to buy groceries, healthcare, that sort of thing. And it gives you the opportunity to devote diversify your investments. And check with your CPA deduct travel costs for new tax trips to visit and manager investment overseas than cats deductible. Wanna check that out with the CPA before him. An owning overseas gives you a foot in the door to the pre would properties located in. It may qualify you for residency. Lisa. But make sure you buy when you're sober and don't do it quickly. You don't want to wind up having somebody tried to hoodwink you into buying a property that you really when you've had one too many Margaritas looks beautiful in when you're sober, you say, oh my gosh, what did I do. Now, more and more people are looking overseas for vacation homes or rental income properties than a place to settle down during retirement, whether it's five years away or thirty years away the tax benefits similar to those of owning a home with a few exceptions, the benefits the property owners get from US tax law depends on how the properties used. If you live in the home, you can generally deduct the mortgage interest in property taxes. But if the properties used for rental, you can still deduct mortgage interest in property taxes. But deducting number of other expenses including property in ability insurance, repair maintenance, loss, local, and long distance travel expenses in that sort of thing. So you want to find out how US treat you with you by overseas. If you use the property as a second phone and not as rental, you can deduct mortgage interest just as you would for a second home in the US. This includes being able to deduct a hundred percent of the interest to pay on up to. One point, one million of debt. Currently that is secured by your first and second homes. It's not one point one million for each property. It's the total. You can also deduct property taxes on your second or as many properties as you own with. You have more than two properties, three. And as with primary residence, you can't write off expenses like utilities, maintenance or insurance, unless you're able to claim the home office deduction. And that's a whole separate topic. Use me. Tax rules are more complicated. If you receive in rental income on the property is different rules applied depending on how many days each year the bomb is used for personal rather than rental us general, though there's three categories that you can think about. I is you ran out the home for fourteen or fewer days to be rented out to someone else for up to two weeks or fourteen nights each year without having to report income to the IRS there. Even if you rented out for five thousand night, you don't have to report the rental income as long as you rented from more than fourteen days house is considered personal residents allowing you to deduct mortgage interest, property taxes under the standard second home rules, but not lentil losses or expenses. The second auction is you rent out the home for fifteen or more days and music fewer than fourteen days or ten percent of the days the home was rented. Now, in this case, the IRS appointing to rules consider. The home, a rental property and rental activities are viewed as a business. You must report all rental income to the IRS. Good news is allows you to deduct rental expenses like mortgage interest, property taxes, advertising expenses, insurance. These on these feeds pay to the property managers. One notable difference between rental property at home at one abroad, good property abroad is appreciated or forty year period instead of the current twenty seven and a half years for domestic residential properties. In either case, you can depreciate the value of the structured building. Only you can't depreciate the value of land. The third option is used the property for more than fourteen days or ten percent of the total as it was rented. In this situation, your property is considered personal residents in the rules for personal use, apply. You can deduct mortgage interest in property taxes, but to can't deduct rental expenses losses. So you in mind that if a member of your family uses the house like this, Faust, siblings of parents, grandparents, children grandchildren, or whatever it counts as a personal day, unless you've collect a fair rice. Now if you buy the house abroad in at some point, you decide you're going to sell treatment according to parental guidelines, similar to selling a home in the US in differs depending on how the property was used. So if you lived in the home for at least two of the last five years qualifies as your primary residence in, you can exclude up to two hundred fifty thousand dollars capital gains or up to five hundred thousand taxpayers as of current rules from the sale. This primary home seal does not apply. It's a home was not your primary residence in which geisha ODI capital gains tax into CPA can Trump walking through that process. If you do so a rental property in the US, you may be able to take ten thirty one exchange, which is also called a like kind exchange in which she swapped one rental property for another property of equal or greater value on a tax deferred basis. In a lot of investors use this type of furnace action to avoid paying capital gains tax to one watch the capital gains rate. If congress decides the change that rate, it can affect how much you pay is needed. The -nificant difference in tach treatment of domestic versus foreign property is that the property in the US is not considered light conto any crappy overseas. And as you have to refer to the US section, ten thirty one allows only domestic domestic and foreign foreign. So you can't have a place in Costa Rica Bence which it out for a place in the neck said the US considered any property outside the US to be like. Kind with any other similar property outside US though you can do ten thirty one exchange in a house in Panama for another one in Panama or Costa Rica, whatever. But you can't do it switch to something in Florida versus Costa Rica though if you rate your home abroad as a rental property, you'll oh taxes in the country where crappies located. One of check into that. You could take tax credit on US tax returns, any taxes you pay to the foreign country. But again, Brock to CPA about that as well as there is a maximum allowable tax credit. You can also claim a foreign tax credit if in sell the property, pay capital gains tax in the foreign country. But again, that's a question for your CPA. But when you buy broad, you need to take extra care planning details very important. Just gonna walk in and say Hayward or a sign. Many countries have rules and regulations about who can own a property and how you use those home overseas. Make sure transaction is conducted. So the protects your property rights in the United States homebuyers received title to the property, but not necessarily in all countries to the title to the property and also be aware that as a foreign property owner, you may be required to file a number of US tax forms depending on the situation. Again, talk to your CPA about that. 'cause there are a number forms that you might have to fill out and comply with in order to do that, does foreign part ownership and tax laws or complicated and change from time to time. We want to talk to qualified tax accountant and a real estate attorney, both abroad and in the United States that's to add to your costs as well. And this is a lot of think about about, do you really wanna buy -cation home versus United States were over seas, but it is something that a lot of people like to do, but I just want you to be sure that you think about it and do your research, do your homework before you jump in and do the purchase, and if you have any information that you want to find out more about you contact me at move or improve with Debbie at g mail dot com.

Advertisers access to your shadow contact information stories written by cashmere hill for Gizmodo, listening to Newsbeat radio. Last week, Iran anad Facebook that was targeted at a computer science professor name Allan misl- of miss loves studies how privacy works on social networks and had theory. Facebook is letting advertisers reach users will contact information collected in surprising ways. I was helping him test that they're targeting human away. Facebook had previously told me would not work. I directed the added display to Facebook account connected to the landline number four Allen misleads office number miss. Love has never provided to Facebook. He saw the ad within hours. One of the many ways that adds get in front of your eyeballs on Facebook and Instagram. Is that the social networking, giant. Let's advertiser upload list of phone numbers or Email addresses. It has on file then put an ad in front of accounts associated with that contact information, clothing retailer, kaput an aunt for address Instagram. Needs of women who have purchased from them before a politician, complaints, Facebook ads in front of anyone on his mailing list or casino can offer deals to the Email addresses of people. Suspected of having a gambling addiction Facebook caused, say, custom audience. You might assume that you could go to your Facebook profile and look at your contact and basic info page to see what Email addresses and phone numbers or associated with your account, and advertisers can use to target you. But as so often the case with this highly efficient data minor posing as a way to keep in contact with your friends. It's going about it in a less transparent and more invasive way. Facebook is not contented use the contact information. You willingly put into your Facebook profile for advertising as also using contact information. You handed over for security purposes and contact information. You didn't hand over at all, but that was collected from other people's contact books. A hidden layer of details. Facebook has about you that I've come to call shadow contact information. I managed to place in ad in front of Allen missile of by targeting his shadow profile. That means that the junk Email address that you handover for discounts for shady online shopping is likely associated with your account and being used to target you with ads. Facebook is not a front about this practice. In fact, when I asked PR team last year, whether it was using shadow contact information for ads, they denied it. Luckily for those of us obsessed with the uncannily accurate nature of ads on Facebook platforms. A group of academic researchers decided to do a deep dive into how Facebook custom audiences work to find out how users phone numbers and Email addresses. Get sucked into the advertising ecosystem. Get Hari in Qatar, Di Pietro, separation, sqi, Anau, misl- of Northeastern University. Along the Lena, lower Cina, Princeton University series of tests that involved handing contact information over to Facebook for group of test accounts in different ways, and seeing whether that information could be used by an advertiser came up with a novel way to detect whether that information became available to advertisers by looking at the stats provided by Facebook about the size of an audience after contact information as applauded, they go into this in greater length technical detail in their paper. They found that when a user gives Facebook phone number for two factor authentication or in order to receive alerts about new log ins to a user's account, that phone number became targetable by an advertiser within a couple of weeks. So users who want their accounts to be more secure are forced to make privacy trade off and allow advertisers to more easily than on the social network. When asked about this Facebook, spokesperson said that we use the information people. Vied offer more personalized experience, including showing more relevant ads. She said, users bothered by this Concetta two factor authentication without using their phone numbers. Facebook, stop making phone number mandatory for two factor authentication for months ago. The researchers also found that if user a. Houma call Anna shares her contacts Facebook, including previously unknown phone number for user be Houma call. Been advertisers will be able to target Ben with an ad using that phone number, which I call shadow contact information about a month later been can't access his shadow contact information because that would violate Anna's privacy according to Facebook. So he can't see it or deleted any can't keep advertisers from using it. Either the lead author on the paper gear at heart, even car, tardy said that this was the most surprising. Finding Facebook was targeting ads using it for mation was not directly provided by the. A user or even revealed to the user. I've been trying to Facebook to disclose shadow contact information to users for almost a year now, but it has even refused to disclose the shadow details users in Europe or privacy laws stronger and explicitly requires companies to tell users what data it has on them. A UK resident name. Rob Blackie has been asking Facebook to handover, his shadow contact information for months. Facebook told him it's part of confidential algorithms, and we are not in a position to provide you the precise details of our algorithms people own their address books of Facebook spokesperson said by Email, we understand that in some cases, this may mean that another person may not be able to control the contact information, someone else uploads about them. So the spokesperson to test the shadow information, finding the researchers try to real world test. They uploaded a list of hundreds of landline. From Northeastern University is our numbers of people who work for northeastern are unlikely added to their accounts though it's very weekly, the numbers would be in the address books of people who know them and who might have uploaded them Facebook. An order to find friends researchers found that many of these numbers could be targeted with ads and when they ran an campaign, the ad turned up in the Facebook newsfeed of misl- who's landline have been included in the file. Confirm this with my own test. Targeting has landline number. It's likely that was shown the ad because someone else uploaded his contact information via contact, importer of Facebook, spokesperson confirmed. When I told the company about the experiment, Facebook did not dispute any of the researchers findings. We outline the information we receive and used for ads in our data policy and give people control over their ads experience, including custom audiences via their preferences set a spokesperson by Email. For more information about how to manage your preferences and the types of data. We used to show people add, see this post and that posed hard questions. What information to Facebook advertisers know about me, Facebook's vice president of ads. Rob Goldman discusses, however, touching works on Facebook and what you can do. If I don't want my data used to show me ads, the post doesn't mention the surprising collection or use of contact information for targeted advertising that the researchers discovered. I think many don't fully understand how ad targeting works today that advertisers can literally specify exactly which users should see their ads by uploading users. Email addresses phone numbers, names and dates of birth, etcetera. Said, mess love in describing this work to collies. Many computer scientists were surprised by this even more surprised to learn that not only Facebook, but also Google interest and Twitter all offer related services. Thus, when there is a significant need to educate users about how exactly targeted advertising on such platforms works today. While Facebook is an affront about which of your contact information uses for adds, it is a front about whichever Tigers are getting access to you with Facebook's ad preferences page. Has a section devoted to advertisers. You've interacted with where it will show you which advertisers have you in their contact west. My own lowest has over three hundred advertisers on very few of whom which I remember consciously giving contact for mation. But if I did it will likely been a junk Email address so that will never out of here from again, misled says Facebook could be far more transparent. Here. Facebook could also reveal to users which personal information was used to target the delivered, add helping users understand how their information is used by advertisers said, miss love by Email and other words, Facebook, tell me which Email. Address or phone number. All these advertisers have on me with the involvement of shadow contact information. Facebook may have been avoiding then because it doesn't want me to know what personal information Facebook has on me there. Certainly creepy our practices happening in the advertising industry, but it's troubling this happening Facebook because of its representations about letting you control your ad experience. It's disturbing. Facebook is reducing the privacy of people who want their accounts to be more secure by using information they provide for that purpose to data. Mine them for ads, and it's also troubling to discover another way in which shadow contact information is used beyond friend, recommendations, given that Facebook doesn't let users see this information about themselves or let them deleted missile things. Facebook can make its platform more transparent. My telling users, everything in knows about them, including all the contact information. It's gathered from various sources and how that information gets used. He suggested Facebook, let user see all the data at has on them and then let them specify whether it is correct and whether advertisers can use Facebook is coined that users already have extensive control over what information is made available to advertisers. But that's not entirely true. When asked the company last year about whether it is shadow contact, information for ads gave me inaccurate information and handmade the practice clear in its extensive messaging to users about ads. It took economic researchers performing tests for months to unearth the truth. People are increasingly paranoid about the creepy accuracy of the ads they see online and don't understand what the information is coming from. That leads to that accuracy. It seems that when it came to this particular practice, Facebook wanted to keep its users in the dark. K. sky. Cloud. So. Agree to the. So. Two. Two. So. So. So. All. If you're. All in.

If you love to read, this is the podcast for you. It's the Golden State media concepts, book review podcast. Hello and welcome to the GMC Booker. You podcast brought to you by the GMC podcast network. I am your host, Sarah, and it's Thursday. So our second episode of the week, the hope you were able to tune in for Tuesday's episode here the interview with Roger Johns. And as reminder about that is a giveaway opportunities. So make sure that you go into that episode and find out more about the book and maybe you want to enter the giveaway and there's instructions in that on how to do that. You may have already read the title of this episode and it is banned books week that is this week. We are smack in the middle of banned books week actually nearing the end because it's September twenty third through September twenty ninth. So we are getting close to the end of the week. I'm really glad that I found out about it this week in not later and went, oh, shoot, I missed it because it's usually what happens to me in these type situations. But fortunately, one of the many newsletters that I signed up for and forgot signing up for or what have you don't remember when I signed up for it. I got a newsletter this week and it talked about banned books week, so decided to look into it. It turns out that this is a weak about banned and challenged books, and it is from the AL a office for intellectual freedom. Alii, of course, standing for American Library association, and I thought I would give you a little background in for. Nation from their website. This is from the this from AOL dot org. And it says about banned books week, ban books week, two thousand eighteen is September twenty. Third through the twenty nineth. It brings together the entire book, community librarians, booksellers publishers, journalists teachers and readers of all types in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas. Even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular the books featured during banned books week, have all been targeted with removal or restricted in libraries and schools by focusing on efforts across the country to remove or restrict access to books, banned books week draws attention, draws national attention to the harms of censorship and their their theme, their logo for this assume for this year, maybe for every year, banning books sounds stories, which is very true. It's banning books, challenging books limits and puts restrictions. On whose voice can be heard. So when we ban books, we silence voices. We silence stories and that is never good because we need diversity in our stories. We need to hear those stories even if they challenge our worldview, especially when we need to hear those stories, we need to hear stories that make us uncomfortable because that is when we we learn and we grow and we learn about people and experiences and cultures that we might not have known about before, and it's it's it's hard sometimes to read things that make you feel uncomfortable or make you feel like that. I just I don't. I don't know. And yet you'll grow and you'll learn from those experiences. So. The history of banned books week in this is from the American libraries magazine article, fifty years of intellectual freedom written by Hawaii f staff, celebrating the offices anniversary. This is still on that Ayla website says that ban books week was launched in the nineteen eighties a time of increased challenges, organized protests and the island trees school districts versus PICO nineteen eighty-two supreme court case which ruled that school officials can't ban books in libraries simply because of their content ban books were showcased at the nineteen eighty two American booksellers association ABA book expo America trade show in Anaheim, California at the entrance to the convention center. Towered large padlocked metal cages with some five hundred challenged books stacked inside and a large overhead sign cautioning that some people considered these books dangerous. Isn't that interesting. Makes me think, and this is a little flippant, but it makes me think of the book in Harry Potter, the bump, the monster book of monsters or whatever. It's called where they have to keep them in the cage. Unfortunately, it's not that lighthearted. These are books that you know of literally been been been caged and taken out of circulation. Made so that they are inaccessible drawing on this excess of the exhibit. This article goes on ABA invited, oh, I f director, Judith Krug to join a new initiative called banned books week along with the national association of college stores, the three organizations, scrambled to put something together by the September show date and ended up distributing news release in publicity kit hoping that with their combined membership of fifty thousand people, they could continue to spark a conversation about banned books. The initiative took off institutions and stores, hosted readouts and window displays morphed into literary graveyards or mysterious collections of Brown bagged books, major news outlets such as PBS and the New York Times covered the event, and mayors and governors, governors issued proclamations affirming the week. Alias is currently part of a national coalition to promote banned books week along with fourteen other contributors and sponsors. And it goes on to say that today banned books week coverage by mainstream media reaches an estimated two point, eight billion readers and more than ninety thousand publishing industry in libraries subscribers. The ban books page remains one of the two most popular pages on the AL a website. And finally, it says that books are still being banned and challenged today we hear about it all the time. A challenge is an attempt to remove or restrict materials based upon the objections of person or group. A banning is the removal of those materials. While books have been and continue to be banned part of the banned books. Week celebration is the fact that in the majority of cases, the books have remained available. This happens only thanks to the efforts of librarians, teachers, students, and community members. Stand up and speak out for the freedom to read. So there you go. That's a brief history of banned books week, so happy that again, I found out about it before it happened during the week that had happened not two weeks after as the daughter of librarian and a an avid reader seriously. How many times do I say that I should just get business cards that say, I am the daughter of a librarian and an avid reader, so shish love books. That's kind of a lengthy business card, but that's okay. But as the daughter of a librarian, it hurts my heart. Think about books being taken out of the hands of people who want to read them it, it shouldn't be up to. It should be up to me what you can read. It shouldn't be up to you what I can read. Now, if you're worried about what your children are reading will don't just send them off to the library all willy nilly. To pick out whatever they want. I mean, talk to your kids about what they're reading. If they're reading, that's that's so wonderful. I mean, not every kid likes to read some kids struggle with reading him. So when they find something that engages their mind and peaks, curiosity, I can't help but say encourage that, encourage that encouraged that encouraged that don't say the first thing they pick up? Nope, that's ban who can't read it. Nope, I don't approve that. Maybe you don't approve of it and I'm not here. This isn't a parenting website or this isn't a parenting podcast. I'm not here to tell you how to raise a kid. I'm just saying if a kid or person of any age, fines isn't necessarily a reader but finds something that that engages their mind that lights up that makes them want to read more, wants to learn more. That is a good thing. And so I'm so glad that there are orgnisations a lot of organizations that are part of this. This this organization. This coalition and that this week every year to draw attention to books that have been banned or books that have been challenged and it keeps them visible so that they just don't disappear completely. We are going to take our first break of the podcast. When we come back, we talking about some of the books that are on those challenged and banned books list. So stay tuned.

Welcome back to the GS and see Booker view podcast. And this banned books week edition before the break gave a bit of of history from the AL a website about banned books week how it got started, how it's continuing all of the people who are all the groups that support, etc. And another link on their website is the top ten most challenged books for each of the years. Definitely a through definitely through two thousand one, and there's one that says before nineteen ninety. So. That's interesting. Two thousand one and then before nineteen ninety, what happened in the nineties. But okay, I'm just looking at that. Wrong doesn't matter. But one take quick look at the top ten most challenged books for twenty seventeen of his lead have a list for twenty eighteen yet because it's not over somebody. Could you know some book could could just take that top spot being most challenged top ten, four, twenty seventeen thirteen reasons why by Jay Asher, the absolutely true diary of a part time Indian by Sherman Alexi drama, written and illustrated by Raina Helga Meyer the kite runner written by Khalid Husseini George written by Alex Gino. Sex is a funny word written by Cory Silverberg and illustrated by Fiona Smyth to kill a Mockingbird written by Harper Lee. The hate you give written by. Andy Thomas, and Tango makes three written by Pierre Parnell and Justin Richardson and illustrated by Henry Cole, and I am jazz written by Jessica hurtful and jazz Jennings and illustrated by Sheila mcnichols. So that is the top ten most challenged books for twenty seventeen. And it seems that the majority of them of thirteen reasons why was banned because it discusses suicide. I'm not going to get on my soapbox. I was so poxy enough in the first episode or the first first segment, but just. I'm just fascinated by. If we ban things to talk about things were uncomfortable with thin. They'll go away right? And and we won't have to worry about our kids. The a lot of that has been a lot of that comes up with the, you know, the the issues of gender identity and sexual identity cetera an- books that have sex in them because then then the people, the kids reading them will will be more sexually experimental or sexually active. It's cetera. And I will just say. That my parents let me read whatever I wanted. I could go to the library which was next door, which was awesome and just choose whatever I want. And I read a book that I was way too young for. I don't remember how old I was, but it was a, there were three sums. There was all kinds of crazy stuff in there that I was not prepared for. And yet somehow I managed to make it through life without becoming like a crazed threesome attic. I can't believe I'm I just said that on the podcast, but I'm just, I'm fascinated by this theory that if you read about it in a book, it's going to make you want to do it. And yeah, maybe sometimes that's true. You read about some adventure that someone had and it makes you think I could do that. I wanna do that. But seen yourself represented in a book or. Seeing that there are different ideas from what you know represented in a book doesn't seem to me to be a bad thing. And again, already been on my soapbox enough for this episode, but I'm wondering how many of those top ten challenged books for twenty seventeen you have read. I unfortunately have only read a couple of them and I think I need to add a bunch of into my TB are list because, hey. Why not? I need to read more banned and challenged books. I have read the kite runner. And yes, it was very difficult to read at times because of the content, but it was so well written reports of it was that were just beautifully written and yes, you had to, you had to read. It's like life. There are. There are the parts that are beautiful and they're the parts that are hard in their the parts that are confusing and crazy. Cetera, et cetera. Yeah, I've read to kill walking bird by Harper Lee and and all my gosh, that's it. Two of the ten, I am ashamed to admit that I am so far behind on everything in life. Right now. Definitely unturned of my to be read list. I also looked at a list of some of the most frequently banned some of some frequently banned children's books, which always surprises me. I mean, well, I guess children's books be just as controversial as any other book. Right? So this one is a list of eight of the most frequently banned children's books topping the list is Harry Potter, and of course that was on the the list atop to the American Library association office for intellectual freedoms list of banned books in two thousand. After parents complained about the stories alleged occult and satanic themes. Yep. We're just ignoring the fact that that's about loyalty and friendship and good versus evil and all kinds stuff. So, hey, at least at least I've read that one. The giver by Lois Lowry. That's recently been made into a movie. It's a new Barry award winner. And let's number two or three wrinkle in time by Madeleine, Langdale. And why was this one banned religious groups in particular, have targeted the nineteen sixty two novel, arguing the book undermines religious beliefs in challenges their idea of God. Interesting in nineteen ninety the Aniston Alabama school district challenge because someone objectors books reference of Jesus, Christ's name alongside figures like Buddha, Gandhi and Shakespeare as the defenders of the earth against evil opponents felt that comparing Jesus to other great leaders implied that Christ was not divine. Oh, we get so upset with so many things don't we? The wonderful wizard of Oz was banned by the Chicago public library in nineteen twenty eight because it was deemed not literature, but somehow rather evil for children. Well, those flying monkeys are scary. I have not read. I've read the wizard of Oz, not all the way through red bits and pieces. Yeah. Hop on pop. This one's my favorite number five is hop on pop by Dr Seuss, and let me read this to you. Dr Seuss's book of rhyming, poems, ranked number sixteen on publishers, weekly publishers, weekly's all time, bestselling children's books and was lauded as one of the teachers top one hundred books for children by the national Education Association. But in twenty thirteen, a complaint was filed to the Toronto public library saying the nineteen sixty three picture book encourages children to use violence against their fathers as if that's not funny enough, the complaint not only asked libraries to pull the book from shelves, but also demanded an apology to fathers in the greater Toronto area and pay for the damages resulting in the book from the book, the library reviewed the request and decided to keep the book after all, a careful reading of the text reveals that the children in the book are told not top on pop. Oh my gosh. I. I got nothing. I'm gonna. Just leave that one for you insert. Funny witty comment here. Number six is, are you there? God, it's me Margaret by Judy Blume. I rather so many times so many years ago. I know I've read it, but I don't remember. I don't remember much about it. I don't remember being or. Oh, no. It was. It was bozeman Montana. That challenge the book come on bozeman. I'm from Montana now. I'm just upset with my home state. Yeah, there was along the way. Margaret expresses her feelings about boys and the joys in horrors of puberty, namely desire to one day soon, need a bra and get her period. Hey, I completely understood that as an eleven year old. Yeah, totally get get that very upset with my home state right now for wanting to ban it. Definitely would make. I know it made me feel like, oh, hey, I'm not the only one that has these feelings and I am sure a no other other young women felt that same way there have been studies number seven is a light in the attic by shel Silverstein. No, a light in the attic is one of my favorites, love shell Silverstein love it. So let's see. This was was the first children's book to make the New York Times bestseller list. It stayed there for a record breaking one hundred eighty two weeks. It was perhaps a little too sophisticated argued some parents in nineteen eighty six, Wisconsin elementary school banned the book because it contained poems that glorified Satan, suicide and cannibalism, and also encourage children to be disobedient. More specifically another school disproved book because it encourages children to break dishes so they don't have to dry them. Wow, we're being literal when we read. That's amazing. Well, number eight, James and the giant peach by Roald Dahl. Let's find out why many of rule dulls classic kids tales of in challenged over the years for not being appropriate for children. It's true. Evil. Adult characters are a common theme, but people have taken issue with James in the giant peach. In particular, the book ranked number fifty on the American Library sociation most challen challenge books of nineteen ninety two nine hundred ninety nine. The story falls an abused young boy who magically travels with a group of talking insects inside you guessed it a giant peach to New York City since its publication in nineteen sixty one. The novel has been banned for being too scary for the targeted age groups, mysticism, sexual inferences, profanity racism promotion of disobedience and references to to tobacco and. Alcohol. If you're wondering what sexual inferences you might have missed -sconsin town banned the book in nineteen eighty six because of a scene featuring the spider licking her lips religious groups in the town argue that the scene could be taken two ways including sexual sexual. Wow, okay. I have James and the giant peach is one of role dolls, book books that I haven't read it. So if you know what it's pointing to in terms of racism, I'd be interesting to hear interested to hear because I do not know what that's referring to. If it's as crazy as the sexuality that's in furred well, I don't know anyway, so that is eight of the top band children's books, which is another interesting list. I think on that note, we are going to take our second break as a podcast him. When we come back, we'll be wrapping up this episode for banned books week, stay tuned. You're listening to the GMC book repot cast, and I will be right back. The average sedan is built with a steel frame equipped with six airbags.

We are celebrating talking about banned books week which is currently happening this week, September twenty third through the twenty ninth. And rather than talking more about banned books and how depressing that depressed. That makes me. I thought I would be a little more positive and go to the page on the American Library association website that's WWW dot Aley, dot org. The talks about avid advocacy in that's just slash advocacy, so makes it easy enough and there if you are wondering what you can do besides starting your own collection of ban books and flaunting them. Look at me, I'm reading a banned book. There are lots of things that you can do. There's links for legislation legislative active action center says we're advocating for libra-. In Washington and we need your help. Yes. At libraries definitely need advocating for. Unfortunately, a lot of people these days see libraries as obsolete, and that is just absolutely not true because as much as we who are book nerds, Love's still love books. Books are not the only things that libraries provide. They provide access to computers and internet they provide. I mean, I can't even begin to tell you how much how much they provide for the community. You probably know just as well as I do how much they provide for the community. There's a hashtag, give a LA your gift to Ayla supports literacy, literary advocacy, literate literacy efforts and scholarships to students entering the library profession. So if you're someone that likes to donate and you're looking for something to donate to this ban books week, you can donate to LA. There is a love live. Geri's dot org supporting one of our nation's most important resources. I love libraries is alien advocacy website for the general public, and that would probably give us even more of an idea as to all the services libraries provide. If you are looking for further resources for ban book weeks, banned book week or just about ban books in general, the LA site also has the banned books week, dot org. Slash resources has a whole huge list of different resources, student resources, event, resources, writer, and artist, resources, retailer, resources, educator, resources, librarian resources, publications. I mean, there's just a million different resources for whatever you might be looking for. And so if you're wanting to know more than that is someplace that you can go and get more information. And basically I would say whatever resources you're looking for, whether it's classroom resources or more information, or activities, or advocacy or donating donating whatever you're looking for it, you're going to be able to find it. It's not hard. You just use your search, your your, why can't I talk today? Jeez, you just use your whip, your your search engine search engine. That's what I'm looking for and type it type in variety of different things. Band booked week, spend book weeks, activities, it's cetera, et cetera on you're going to come up with a lot of things. I would say, whatever you do to celebrate, you know, whatever works for you, but read ban books by ban books, check them out from your library, support your library. That would be one of the major things support your libraries and get out there. Well, and support support ban books also buy them support. The authors. And promote them. If that's your thing, we Cho's inclusiveness and representation matters when it comes to books. We hear all the time when someone went how many people talk about. I never thought I could do x. y. z. but then I saw my someone that looked like me or act like me or had experiences like me. I saw them portrayed in a book and maybe that book is made into a movie, and then they saw themselves or someone like them portrayed in a movie, and it made them realize that maybe they to could do those things in clues of different types of people, different types of lifestyles. Different ways of thinking is so important representation matters. And when we ban books than we eliminate those stories and they aren't as acceptable. So. I feel like I've been nattering nattering nattering, and I'm going to wrap this episode up. Hope you'll do something to celebrate ban books, whatever it is. I would love to hear about it. Hit me up on social media, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Let me know what you're doing to celebrate ban books. Let me know your favorite band book would what?

I have no idea why we would talk like parrots more, but it is kind of a funny holiday and the world is full of funny holidays today just happens to be one of them. So. On Sundays episode. We talked about the Old Testament attacks assigned for this week and this week, this episode, we'll talk about the New Testament texts. Those come to us today from James and the gospel of Mark. So let's go ahead and get started with the reading from James comes to us from James chapter three versus one through twelve and those verses are as follows. Not many of you should become teachers. My brothers and sisters for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness. For all of us make many mistakes. Anyone who makes no mistakes in speaking is perfect able to keep the whole body in check with a bridle. If we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we guide their whole bodies or look at ships though they are so large that it takes strong winds to drive them yet. They're guided by a very small rudder wherever the will of the pilot directs. So also the tongue is a small member yet it boasts of great exploits how great a forest is set ablaze by small fire and the tongue is a fire. The tongue is placed among our members as a world of iniquity it stains the whole body sets on fire the cycle of nature. And is it self set on fire by hell for every species of beast and bird of reptile and secret. Feature can be tamed and has been tamed by the human species, but no one can tame the tongue, a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With that, we bless the Lord and father and with it, we curse those who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth comes blessing and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this ought not to be so does a spring pour forth from the same opening both fresh and brackish water can a fig tree, my brothers and sisters yield olives, or grapevine figs? No more consult water yield fresh again that is James chapter three versus one through twelve, and that is. A lot. Reverse thing that jumps out of me is, is that I, I not many of you should become teachers, my brothers and sisters for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness, and that almost seems to not quite go with the rest of this passage. But what what strikes me as interesting is that so often, you know, other parts of the bible talk about the gifts that people are given the gifts of teacher and it it's always presented as being a good thing. Not the best thing or the only thing because of course, Kreis body is made up of many members all with all who have a certain skills and certain gifts, etc. So teachers are one important part of the body of Christ, but this is not many of you should become teachers for. You know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness, and we could take that in all kinds of directions with today's society and how we've you teach is and and I have nothing but respect for. Teachers who work so incredibly hard to educate our children, but then moves onto for all of us make many mistakes. And so you think, okay, wait, where's going with this? It almost makes it almost would make more sense to me to just start talking about, you know, to start here, all of us make many mistakes. Anyone who makes no mistakes in speaking his perfect and then goes on to talk about this whole. It seems like there's a series of non sequiturs when we start the teachers than the mistakes than keeping the whole body in check with bridal horses than two ships. Then a great forest is set ablaze by a small fire, but then we find out that he's talking about the tongue, a very small part of our body right and yet has so much of the tone is quite powerful when you think about it. Because of course, the tongue is how many of us. Speak and. It's it's ability to well, I really like my favorite part of this. This text is with it. We bless the Lord and father, and with it we curse those who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this ought not to be so. And have you ever thought about that that with are saying being and we don't have to necessarily think of it as our tongue. However we speak, you know, some people speak inside language, etc. Other different ways of communicating. Some people speak through writing, but with our same being with our same self, we bless God. And then we often turn around and curse. Those who are made in the likeness of God. We say terrible things about our brothers and sisters in Christ. We say terrible things about our neighbors. And you know, you know that saying d kiss your mother with your mouth with that mouth. Well, kinda makes me think, do you bless God with that mouth because your blessing God, but you are not respecting or carrying for God's children. And that's really what I get out of this text. I do wanna look at some commentary for this to see what else is going on here because for me, that's that's really the heart of it. This commentary. Is from Margaret Aamer the first Presbyterian church Shreveport. The Thomason professor of New Testament Austin Presbyterian theological seminary in Austin, Texas. And she says, metaphors abound in James three one through twelve. Yes, they do Margaret, and these metaphors can often obscure the point that James is trying to make in this passage. Appoint not about speech in general or even about teaching despite the way he begins this chapter. James warning, she says, in the beginning about teaching concerns, one specific aspect of teaching, and that is how teachers speak that is the control teachers have over what they say, which makes more sense, right? Because then moves on in that vein, teachers of James's day gave public discourses to which students and other, here's gathered round. Imagine how easily someone might be, let us stray by misplaced or unintended word within that discourse yet who could imagine a teacher that never wants misspoke, never once chosen unfortunate word or phrase. Can you imagine anyone who never miss speaks? You know, I open my mouth all the time and things pop out that I go, whoa way. What where did that come from? So she says that today's passage invites meditation on these singular importance of teachers in our lives, particularly the impact of teachers word on the life of those who hear her. So he didn't then continues his discussion with two metaphors the horses bit and the ship's rudder. Any makes a similar point with each of those how they aren't very large and yet they control something much larger than they are. And then moves moving onto this, this image of the tongue and how it to is very small but can control something much larger and then he ships be shifts. Metaphors. Again, the tongue is now a flame that lights a forest fire, right? There's a lot going on, but. She says that pure and undefined religion to James remains unstained by the world. Thus argues, James, the tongue has the capability of destroying one's religious practice and that of one's community. That is a huge thing right that that's that's a huge thing for one small tongue to be able to do here. James invites meditation on destructive speech. More broadly defined. One might, for instance, think critically about racist speech vitriol against immigrants or the practice of trolling on social media. Just in a few things that we do, those aren't all, you know, trolling on social media. That's your keyboard, right? That's not your tongue, but still cursing. God's children. So in three, chapter three versus seven through twelve, James reaches the climax of this part of the letter. She asks, why does James consider the tongue arrest Lewis, evil, full of deadly poison? Consider says James, how we the church speak. We bless God and with the same tongue, we curse one another. Then he moves onto more metaphors the gathering of all his from a fig tree or brackish water and freshwater coming from the same spring, it cetera, et cetera. James here invites consideration of how we speak to one another as members of the church. What kinds of output dorm, ELS produce. James invites consideration of speaking to one another as informed by the ways we speak to God for as James reminds us, we are each made in God's image. James also invites us to consider the importance of silence. Silence not only as a means to listen for God, but also as a spiritual practice of bridling our tongues. That. Like the way she just she brings up the metaphors and she puts them in context, but she cuts through them as well because that that as she says, the main message can get lost in these verses. He's here, he's there. He's jumping all around. There's fire, there's tongues, there's horses and ships and fig trees. Everything you can imagine and it it's twelve versus that really do boil down to the way we speak about God and then the way we speak to about each other. And I like that she, she wraps it up with that making this spiritual practice. So we are made in God's image. We, we worship God, we studied God's word cetera. How does that? How does worship how to studying God's word? How does being made in God's image affect the way we then treat each other? Does it affect the way we treat each other. And this can be a spiritual practice. You know, she says bridling tongue, but we've talked about silence before and how that can be difficult, but to sit in silence and listen for God's word to sit in silence and just soak in God's word, but also sometimes to sit in silence. So we're not saying something that we don't need to be saying. We don't always need to criticize right? We don't always need to make the snarky comet. We don't always need to curse our brothers and sisters sitting silence and listen to what God is telling you to say to your brothers and sisters in Christ. We do have to take our first break of the podcast. When we come back, we'll be turning our attention to the gospel from Mark assigned for this week. So stay tuned.

Before the break, we were talking about the text assign this week from the book of James chapter three. And now we are moving on to the gospel reading and we are working our way through the gospel of Mark as you know this week that reading comes to us from Mark chapter eight versus twenty seven through thirty eight and those versus are as follows. Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of cesary Phillipines and on the way he asked his disciples who do people say that I am and they answered him John the Baptist and others Elijah and still others one of the prophets, he asked them, but who do you say that I am? Peter answered him, you or the messiah, and Jesus sternly ordered them not to tell anyone about him. Then he began to teach them, the son of man must undergo great suffering and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the scribes and be killed. And after three days rise again, he said, all of this quite openly and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, but turning and looking at his disciples. He rebuked Peter and said, get behind me, Satan. For you're sitting, you're setting your mind, not on divine things, but on human things, Jesus called the crowd with his disciples and said to them, if any of you want to become my follow. Hours, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me for those who want to save their life will lose it and those who their life for my sake and for the sake of the gospel will save it for what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? Indeed, what can they give in return for their life? Those who are shamed of me and of my words in adults and sinful generation of them, the son of man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his father with the holy angels. That is the gospel of Mark chapter eight versus twenty seven through thirty eight and probably a lot of familiar things in there for many of you, you know, those who would be my disciples. If you, you know, you have to take up your cross, it's cetera, et cetera. There's a lot and here. Today's reading is actually in almost every way possible the center of Mark's gospel. In fact, it stands quite literally near the dead center of Mark's work. It marks the major transition in the story from Jesus's ministry of opposing all that oppresses God's people. And he does that by healing feeding casting out demons and all of those things that we've been reading and talking about Jesus doing. To Jesus journey to the cross. So there's this shift. We are at the halfway point and Mark shifting his attention away from Jesus's ministry and his healing and teaching, etc. And now shifting preparing us as the readers, Jesus repairing the disciples, but we are prepared as readers than to know what is coming. We are journeying with Jesus to the cross now at this point, but this section also summarizes the essence of the kingdom of God and why it can be so hard for us to accept that kingdom, the word Christ, the word Christ. Excuse me, the word Christ has not appeared since the gospels opening verse. So here we are chapter later, and this is the second time that the word Christ has appeared. We've had seven plus chapters of Jesus's ministry of questions asked about his true identity. In thirty and the answers to those questions have come from unexpected places. But those who are following Jesus have yet to truly understand who he is and what his ministry is meant to accomplish. A so often happens the disciples or kind of the last ones to know or maybe the last ones to really figure things out. I sometimes think maybe they were too close to it. They were traveling with Jesus. Maybe they started to just take things for granted, whereas people that Jesus encountered. Maybe through healing through teaching cetera had an outside perspective. They were able to see what the disciples couldn't. And at this point, Jesus and his disciples have been all over gallery gala leaks me. If you remember when we start pretty much each section, it's Jesus went here or Jesus traveled here Jesus journeyed from here. Now we are on the outs, outskirts of Caesarea Philippides and Jesus asks the disciples to important questions. He starts with, who do people say that I am. And then he says, who do you say that I am? And they answer both. They answer the first with comparisons to important biblical feature figures. Well, some people say, you're the messiah. Some people say you're John the Baptist. Some people say you're Elijah. Sorry, Elijah, John the Baptist, not the messiah. And then Peter, oh, God bless Peter. I love Peter, but I just feel so bad for him all the time. He gets it right. Finally, he gets it right. Jesus's. Who do you say that? I am? Peter says, you're the messiah. He has this flash of insight that Jesus is more than just their teacher more than just their rabbi. He's more than just some miracle worker who's traveling around healing people. He has this insight suddenly that Jesus is the messiah, the anointed one, the Christ. And then as we have this insight and maybe finally, the labels are starting to realize who exactly they've been traveling with this whole time. Jesus begins to explain what it means to be the messiah, and no one, maybe a specially Peter can believe it because the Jews including Jesus Jewish disciples were looking for a powerful leader, maybe a military leader maybe king like David Wright, and they were definitely disappointed with Jesus's pronouncement of what it meant to be the messiah. That was not the kind of messiah they were looking for. So Jesus claim repeaters claim. Excuse me, that Jesus is the messiah is actually a really astounding. Statement because so far Jesus hasn't done anything that looks particularly Christ. Like messiah-like. Peter can't be saying, you know, the stuff you're doing. Jesus reminds me of those obscure references. We find in some writing about someone who was anointed and divinely authorized to Limerick from oppression, no, by calling Jesus the Christ. At this point in the story, Peter declares that he thinks Jesus is the one who will Pira fi Jewish society who will reestablish Israel supremacy among the nations who will usher in a new era of peace and holiness. Peter is expecting huge things from Jesus. So it's no wonder then that Peter kind of freaks out about what Jesus tells him he is going is going to happen to him as the messiah. I mean, he's looking for this, they're all looking for this certain type of messiah. And now Jesus is talking about. Suffering rejection being killed, and we have to think Peters, probably wondering, weren't you paying attention to when I said you were the Asya when you were the Christ, don't you know what that means that makes me think of the Princess bride. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think. It means feel like that's what Peter's thinking you keep using the were. I don't think you mean don't think Besigye means what you think it means. On that very silly note. Let's go ahead and take another break. When we come back, we'll be finishing up talking about the gospel of Mark for this week. So stay tuned. You're listening to the GMC bible study podcast, and I will be right back.

Welcome back to the GMC bible study podcast, and we are talking about the gospel for the Sunday assigned to the assigned. Excuse me from the gospel of Mark and would talking about Peter's assertion that Jesus is the Christ. Jesus is the messiah, but that that has a very different meaning than what Jesus then talks about everything Jesus describes in verse thirty. One. In fact. Essentially disqualifies him from being that person that the disciples are imagining that messiah, the disciples or imagining. So Peter gets the title, right? But he gets the meaning wrong. His confession uses technically accurate language, but he cannot yet see what that actually means. He can't. He. He uses the right term, but he's missing the big picture. Jesus identity doesn't just include his eventual death and resurrection. It's actually defined by those things, and that would have been really hard to understand lacking the gift of hindsight that we have. We know Jesus story. We know how it actually turns out right. Lacking this gift of hindsight, how would we have reacted to what Jesus was telling us? If we had this very specific set of qualifications for what we thought the messiah would be, how would we react if Jesus then started talking about betrayal. Arrest, torture, death, it cetera. Yeah, we're hitting they're getting the. They're having to rear readjust their entire way of thinking. This is not the messiah that they thought they were getting and what about us. We may not always get the God we want right? Because. Let's back up Jesus's announcement. Is that often we? Yeah. Backing up here. We look to God for strength right often, and that's exactly what the disciples are, picturing the messiah as being is the strong, maybe military leader who will do certain things and restore Israel to what it was before Roman occupation. And Jesus is saying, in fact, God actually often comes to us and meets us in our weakness, how much more week can you get? Then God sending godson as this newborn tiny baby, very vulnerable, very, very vulnerable. Jesus moves from his moves on from describing what it means to be the messiah to telling his followers, what it actually means to follow. And then these are more familiar words, right? We get the denying of oneself taking up the cross, saving losing one's life, it's cetera. Those are really familiar versus. But again, they are probably not what the disciples were expecting to hear. The phrase losing your life is important to understanding not just Mark story of Jesus, but the whole of Jesus's ministry and mission as well as the kingdom of God itself. These words turn out to be for Jesus as he does in fact lose his life and finds it again in the resurrection. They turn out to be true for Jesus. Could this also be literally true for us. Obviously, eventually we're all going to die and we place our trust in the promises of the resurrection that will give us ever last in life with God even after death. But in what ways have we also experienced losing our life as the key to receiving it back again, for instance, when we give a gift to another. We often recognize, do we often recognize how much we receive in return or have you discovered on occasion that only by loving another? Do you feel yourself to be loved. Or have you have you ever gone without so that someone else could have more and then felt richer as a result of that going without. Or that there's no better way to find a friend than I to be a friend, right? And that unexpected rewards can come through sacrifice. There's there's numerous examples that we could bring up. It's easiest for me to see these examples in my nieces. You know, always bringing up my nieces and I so often see God's work in children, whether that's my nieces or whether that's the children I used to work with or the children that I encounter church cetera there so open, especially especially when they're younger, you know, before they get to kinda that adolescent teenage years and then things shift a little bit. But think of those small children in your life who are so open with their love, and they're so open to giving and receiving that when I was when I'm with them, I often feel like I'm the one who receives a wonderful gift simply because I love these amazing little humans. It almost seems unfair how much I get out of that relationship being just for loving them. And it inspires me to constantly strive and seek to make those relationships better so that they always always know my. Love for them even when they do go through those teenage years. And several of them are there one of them's now in her twenties. So how do I show them my love for them? And that is always there. In these kinds of loving gifts. We're giving glimpses of the inverted logic of the kingdom of God. It's inverted logic because it's so dramatically different than the logic that runs the kingdom of the world that we live in right that logic, the logic of the world suggests that the only way to find security is through possessions or power or wealth, or some combination thereof, and that only by having more can we be happy only by satisfying all of our wants? Can we ever be content that logic, this earth logic operates on a notion of absolute scarcity and therefore it pits us against each other in a kind of a winner-takes-all competition when it comes to love. It's all around us because it's the logic behind almost every advertising campaign, right. Think about every commercial you've ever seen in how it makes you think you need this product and how that product is going to make everything better, but. It's also behind political rhetoric is also behind commercial decisions, cetera, et cetera. And this was the logic that was the driving force behind. So many things that were going on. I mean, that is driving force. Excuse me, this is the logic that is the driving force behind so many things. You know, we gather, we gather, we gather, we must have this. I just, I need this right deserve this, and there's a lot to be said about that kind of thinking. But against all of this, Jesus urges us to give of ourselves to put others first to take up burdens on behalf of others of our brothers and sisters in Christ, and doesn't that sound different and also similar to what we read in James, right? What if we were to speak to our neighbors, the way we speak to God or think of our neighbors the way we think of God loving us. So it's no wonder that the cycles disbelieved what Jesus said, but not just the cycles, it's no wonder that eventually Jesus g. Sus ministry was rejected by so many people and his his ministry ended on the cross. It's no wonder that his words are met with skepticism when he says that an order to enter the kingdom of God, you need to be last not first Jesus here is proclaiming an anti kingdom in it. So utterly opposite of what we imagine a kingdom should be. And this logic that seems so opposite to always have encountered actually invites us to the scupper ourselves in our lives by receiving our identity as beloved children, rather than trying to earn it through compliments through wealth through power, etc. Were receiving our identity where not earning it. It invites us to find our purpose in serving others rather than accomplish in accumulating goods. It invites us to imagine that our lives and the lives of those around us have infinite worth simply because God chooses to love us apart from anything we've ever done or not done anything we've ever said or not said, God's kingdom is about life. Not the pseudo life that we've been persuaded by advertisers is the best we can expect, but real honest to goodness. Life. Can you imagine a place where people felt they could really be themselves and know that they were loved and accepted as themselves? That's the challenge and the invitation that Jesus offers here. All we have to do is here it is so simple to do is trade what we've been led to believe in life that believe is life for what really is life. And that's incredibly hard because so much money and energy has gone into those advertising campaigns into convincing us that the best we can expect is some sort of process where we only get what we deserve, right? We'll thank God. We don't get what we deserve. Thank goodness. We get what God thinks we deserve. So if we can let go even for a few minutes, we can let go of all of that earthly thinking rather than kingdom of God. Thinking will discover that God's still loves to create out of nothing to raise the dead to new life and to give each and every one of us so much more than we either deserve or we can even imagine. That's the logic of God's kingdom, which is almost the exact opposite of the logic that the world would tell us, right? But that is the truth that will lead us to the gift of life. Nothing on earth can give us that same gift of happiness and love that taking up our cross and being followers of Christ can give us. And so hopefully as we go through the rest of this week, we can experience that joy as we follow Jesus. As we strive to love as God loves us as we strive to give love as we receive love from God. And that seems like a really great place to end right? I encourage you to think about that to to go through life and notice the places where you are giving and receiving love and how those reflect your relationship with God. Thank you so much for joining me. Please join me again on Sunday. We'll mill turning our attention to the text, the sign for the eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost.
