"Present themselves and it's a good reminder on a day when we're heading into an inauguration in which the nation's capital will be empty of any people attending the inauguration. The military will be standing posts because of recent skirmishes. There will be people that are, you know, blasting out through social media that they're not gonna watch it and other people are gonna have watch parties. And in the midst of all of this in America, the church is keenly placed right smack in the middle of it. That's why we've been having these conversations with pastors over the last week or so. Dr David Ireland my guest on Dr Island Way, It's pretty clear, my friend Ryan Basil said last week. He goes Isn't hard. It's just hard doing it. Doing the right thing is pretty simple to divine treat people as though they were made in the image of God. What are one or two tips that help us do that better this year? Two things, Kevin. First Diversity is a growth process. Welcoming of people is a growth process. We have to grow his reconcile ours. It's not static. It's ongoing. You get better at it. Exactly. You have to get better at it. Second. Don't be embarrassed off reluctant off getting a diversity coach. We don't see ourselves. I think the average NFL team has 15 coaches and these guys, they make a lot of money. They're the best of the best in their craft in the world. But yet on average, each team has 15 coaches, so the purpose of the coach Is not for someone who's a scrub purpose of a coach. It's from someone who's very good at what they do, but they want to get better. And that's what happened in Galatians two. All coach Peter on diversity. So, Peter the way Peter carry themselves the way he connected with others the way you present themselves, the way he was interpreted by others was far more effective. After he had been coached, because many of us we lack awareness on so we're going to then see how others interpret us it requires and that we sit where they sit and You what they feel and talk with, And so we gonna be able to understand what it means to practice advocacy because we walked in issues to some measure, and so we have to have diversity coaches in our lives well, and I I think those are both very practical and friends. Certainly there are more research sources. Dr David Ireland's book. One in Christ that he released just a couple of years ago..

"Both sides. Republicans and Democrats will be weighing in On exactly what happened last night and kind of their thoughts and views from where they sit in and are contesting for the race. They'll tell us what they think. Leslie Marshall and Carol Markowitz among those who will be joining us at 5 P.m. today on Am 9 70 the answer. Where you can hear a second hour of Kevin McHale each day, But I also want to say thank you. To those of you that have been with us for the heart for Lebanon issue. We we Once again have missed the goal of the effort that we were putting forward and because of you, we're it 109% of the amount we were looking for to help those families in Lebanon, So thank you again if you didn't give w dot com Kevin McCullough. Glad to have you with us every single day. We normally take the kind of top news stories of the day and help you break them down in terms of what they mean and why they matter to you, and hopefully there's some redemptive element of How we can at least approach it and look at it A CZ. You know, If you listen to this show for any length of time over the last 20 something weeks it's been one of the darkest periods in our city. There's just no other way around it. People have been locked down there have been church is closed. You have had businesses that have supplied family their their their earnings for their entire life, and it's just wiped away. Because of the events of the day. And as we have gone through this, we've had a number of local pastors that have been on to talk about the impact of the lock down the impact of the the government's kind of plodding along in terms of what it's doing. We've heard from Urban and suburban pastors alike. Dr. David Ireland's been here Ryan Basil from emergence has been here, Jim Symbol a from Brooklyn tab. We've we've we've tried to encompass as much of the Thie the family in the tri state area here and wrap our arms around what is happening in the churches, but friends I know that personally, you get discouraged I hear from you regularly. And I know that my family struggles with the same thing. And it was one of the reasons why I was very pleased. Tio catch a sermon recently from Doug Becker, who happens to be the pastor of theology. For emergency church in New Jersey. Ryan Basil heard here Sunday afternoons on AM 5 70 the mission in New York. But it's ah pleasure to welcome Doug to Calvin McCullough radio for the first time. And we found out talking affair that we're old college buddies. So, Doug welcome. It's good to have you. It's good to be with you, Kevin. Um First of all, I want to compliment the church of your employment for having a pastor. It Of theology on staff and it before we get into the specifics of what you talked about recently, I just talk to me about because I'm fascinated by the stuff that emergency does. I really have a deep love and appreciation for Ryan. And for Steve, the founding pastors. But talk to me about why it's important for you as a congregation Tohave, a pastor that is examining things through the lens of theology. That's a great question. I often tell people that the job my job is the pastor of theology here is to figure out what a pastor of theology does. In some respect. All pastors are pastors of theology, meaning that we need to be constantly taking our cues from a measured examination of God's word. And a wise application of that toe life. And it in practice, however, that's often that's often difficult to do in the hustle and bustle of pastoral ministry. Now, obviously everything that our pastors do is kind of shot through with that. But But my task here is to be the guy who takes the time to reflect to examine cultural trends as well as things that important teaching initiatives in our church and to try to figure out what the best biblical way to say things is. My my job includes a lot of a lot of writing of a lot of reading school. I kind of get paid to read a lot of just meeting meeting with people and counseling people. Ah, answering questions and things like that, and bright. Yeah, well, and you guys have. Ah, and I'm familiar Not only with this from a personal firsthand experience, but I've known people that have been part of emergence since it started. And so I've And as I've looked at different church models and interacted with so many pastors on the air Doug it's been one of those things where the older I've gotten, and I'm starting to get to the stage of life where I refer to myself that way. Ah, somewhat unwillingly, but I I am doing it. The more I am appreciating. The fact that there are there are those in the body of Christ right now, even in local churches, even in this area that are saying we want to beam or intentional about all that God calls us, too, and not just, you know, kind of shoot from the hip, but make sure that if we're doing a sermon, Siri's that it's that it's accomplishing a goal of EXP OZ it ing scripture and getting to the deeper meaning or If we're addressing a cultural trend, it's from a thoroughly biblical viewpoint. And so it seems to me that those are all dynamic qualities that have to be ever pursued, and maybe never fully mastered. But that in that pursuit is where you get the rial. Kind of meat for the those that are going through that process with you. I'm just curious if you have a similar observation about the kind of necessity of that for the local church in the day in which we live this modern, you know 2020 America. Yeah, it's it's absolutely necessary. We, uh we live in a day when you know where there's a We're just bombarded by a lot of information, a lot of things claiming to be authoritative. And on and we really need to be careful because one of the challenges in this digital age in which we live is that we have access to a lot of information, but sometimes we're not so wise and evaluating that information and and as Christians, we have first obligation to the Lord..

"Kevin McCullough radio. So glad to have you with us. I'm so very thankful for the two men that are joining us today. I have a genuine deep personal love and appreciation for both of their Ministries and what they're doing for the body of Christ. In their perspective, callings and their perspective, geography ease and it is. I think it is long overdue for us to just kind of go all in on the discussion that we're having today, which is no holds barred. How does the church respond when when the death of George Floyd brings once again to highlight thes issues of injustice and these issues of race That seemed to a CZ, Ryan said in the earlier segment seemed to almost immediately invoke. Ah political overtone. When we in the church know that it's actually a spiritualist you It's a heart issue. This is an issue of of human behavior and conscience and thinking and how we live our lives on. I'm so thankful to have this kind of no holds barred discussion. Dr Bernard As we were going to break you were making an analogy of the generations and how that has on some level introduced. We're seeing new people coming to the conversation. Then the generation that march in the civil rights marches in the 19 sixties, and that is changing the conversation. I'm assuming that's where you were going with that, but explain what you meant. Yeah, let me just, you know, just complete that state that thought about Ah, wounded our nation Denialism is when we choose to deny a reality in order to avoid an uncomfortable truth. But it's true. That brings the conviction necessary for change, and we need that change in our society, and these young people are looking at the CCTV Black organization, calling some of the other organizations as the establishment. That has not facilitated enough cage within our society. Think about what you said earlier in this program when you talked about the burning of the ST John's Church, right, I thank God that there was, you know, not too much damage, so the church is preserved. All right. Think about the graffiti on ST Patrick's Cathedral here in New York City. Think about the burning of the police station in in Minnesota. These are symbols. And the power of those symbols. So what this society is saying and I don't condone the burning. I don't condone the looting the facing of property that's vandalism. And I don't condone that bet if I could take a deeper look because understand To understand something means to grasp the character, the nature, the propensities, the subtleties of what's happening. And when you look at these institutions, what are they in symbols of social institutions? That the people feel have failed him since the church law enforcement government you understand? So this from a social sociological level. You're saying that these institutions have failed us shall now we have Q. You know, with with great demonstration express our anger our hurt. Posted something the other day, saying that I understand the violence. I don't condone it, but I understand it and I got attacked for thing. I understand the violence because in thing I understand it was interpreted as me agreeing with it. You can understand something That doesn't mean you agree with it. You know what I mean? That's the false equivalence there. But I understand where it's coming from the frustration, the pain and I absolutely say that what we're feeling play out in terms of vandalism is undermining the message. It's taking away from the real message and the real issues that we have willing to reinforce that Dr Bernard I'm not even convinced that much of the actual violence is being done by those Morning, George Floyd. I think that I think that you have. I think that we've covered it pretty well on other aspects of my show, But we've You've got people that are wanting to exploit the pain of this instance to make other messages that have nothing to do with the main message that we're talking about today, and I think that We need to not allow them to hijack that discussion. One of the reasons why I thought we should talk about this today, actually, because I think we need to. We need to keep the spotlight on the main thing, which is The injustice and the racial equation in America. We're speaking with Dr Air Bernard in Pastor Ryan Basil of the Christian Cultural Center and emergence churches. And gentlemen, there's there's all kinds of things that we could commit ourselves to doing. And so you know, in this day of shutdown church I know there have been zoom meetings taking place with Ryan. I think that you guys had one where you had encouraged your your body to come together and have a discussion about this. I'm just Curious. Could you give us a little feedback about how that went? And what did you find helpful about it? For us at our church way Have we have Ah, racial reconciliation..

"And as we continue to see the images And the one that got me in the last 24 hours was when the protesters began to burn the church in Washington D. C. What How does that even begin? To make sense? Where does where does that advanced justice? Where does that bring about a greater understanding for a historic church to be burned? Maybe it's more symbolic than we would like to admit as a country, but we were nonetheless living out. Right before our eyes, even in lock down in places like New York were watching thes these protests. These demonstrations, this dialog that is attempting to be had and sometimes being Squirreled away by other groups with other agendas. But I thought, Well, what? What about the church? What? What should we be doing? How should we be responding? And just before the break, Ryan Basil and Dr Bernard are my guess. Ryan just revealed. That one of the things that he gets the most pushback on is the sin of racism in his his own teaching in his own experience, and Dr Bernard, I'm sure that doesn't come as a surprise to anybody who maybe African American listening, nodding their head in agreement. But I think that that is something that white evangelicals have not fully owned, have not fully been able to articulate and I give Ryan a lot of credit and admitting it, But But it's the points too. Even the root of this problem that we're watching culturally play out. What does it say to you, Dr Bernard that that at issue exist if we get big, Frankly, I have a question for Ryan. Uh, it's his congregation multiracial. And if so? Who is pushing back against that conversation. Ryan. Yeah. Thanks. For our our our congregation is multi racial and the funny thing about this issue, unfortunately for us as Christians We want to have a theological conversation. That Sometimes people think it's a political conversation. And the issue race and racism is not a political issue. It's that it's a justice, theological issue. Sadly, some people, um In their discipleship, maybe thinking more politically than biblically. And there is despair. And so has field thinking, theologically. I'm Oh case coming to terms with the reality that almost dinner and so because I grew up like In in AA. I can step back and say Because I'm a dinner there. There's probably areas of ignorance in my life. That I'm just unaware there's probably systems That have created dead ignorance and that that can raise a lot of defensiveness and people And I think defensiveness coming from the white side is when you're white. And you feel that defensiveness. You have to stop and ask why And asked, Theologically what does the Bible say on my being and my drawing a line to a conclusion that's not being said in the statement. A my drawing a line to a conclusion. That is five such down the road, but it's not the biblical issue here. I think defensiveness. Comes up quickly in this conversation. That's why I.

"You Can't Odds Are He's Right. I don't know if you're at all like me, But in the last few days I have seen the events of what our nation has gone through. And I've seen all the snapshots of the different perspectives. I think we all we all watched the initial video about a week ago today coming out of Minneapolis of A man who, by any measure of wrongdoing, did nothing coming close to deserving of having Ah police officer put his A knee into the neck of the man on eventually suffocate him to death. And yes, that is the official cause of death. As of the newly released autopsy within the last 24 hours, fix e ation. With pressure on both the neck and the back that caused George Floyd to be unable to breathe. From that point on, there was another snapshot that came to mind and it was of Immediate condemnation from the mayor's office from the governor's office from a fellow law enforcement organizations across the country. Even the president coming out and saying, this is wrong and deserve swift justice. That that snapshot kind of faded into what had to be expected would be revisiting of the discussion of race relations and police involvement in wrongful deaths and the justifiable demonstration of solidarity that the the's things change in our country. And then there's Of course, the snapshot of even yesterday in which a historic black church in Washington, D. C was set on fire, not by those peaceful demonstrators. But by instead people who have infiltrated them and now seek to use this cover as a means for a violent end. But I don't think there's anybody that can sit in our nation today and see these snapshots and see even the progression of how this is unfolding and not come away with a great sense that there is something wrong. Add to that in my own experience just this week. Very Difficult interactions with even my own family members through social media, through personal conversations, and through observations that people coming from different perspectives have And then add to that the larger issue of how Christians themselves should be involved in this matter, and you have a you have a cacophony. Of questions and very few answers being given that are reliable. So it was with some. I don't know, creative interest. I reached out to my guest that are going to join me for this discussion this hour because I'd like to try to get some answers to some of these questions, and I and I have another question to pose. Is there more that the Church of Jesus Christ can and should be doing to speak into all of this? Joining me are a couple of men that I consider not only friends but very important influences in my own thinking on all these matters and more one is the senior pastor of the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, New York. His name is Dr Air Bernard and he rejoins us, Dr. Bernard. Always good to have you Thanks for coming back. Thank you, my friend. Good to be with you. And also joining us is Ryan Basil, who's pastor of one of the faster growing churches in northern New Jersey. And friends. The geography of this discussion is kind of important. I want this to be a tristate discussion from both suburban white evangelicals and people that are attending. Church in In the inner city of New York and by representation and by extension. This broader discussion hopefully can include all of us, but Ryan welcome back to Kevin McCullough radio. It's good to have you as well. Great to be back, Kevin. Great to be with you, Dr Bernard. Let me let me just roll this ball right into the middle of the floor. And then, like we used to play in gym class many years ago, one of you can race to pick it up and thought it the other one. Um, Dr Bernard. One on one of the things I'm hearing in this discussion. Is that while times have somewhat changed in recent years and decades Some things have never changed. And I'm wondering, too. What degree the church is both involved in the advancing of the change, but also maybe not advancing the change your perspective. Well. First of all technology advances, civilization advances, but human nature remains the same. And if there's anyone that should be an expert in human nature, it should be the church. Because we have an incredible revelation that explains to us it gives us an understanding of human nature, and we continue to be surprised at How it manifests itself. You know the fallen human condition? Um, but we can always bank on human nature remaining the same people and the issues that surround people. We are We live in a Since the fall of broken wounded, disordered and dysfunctional world, uh it begins with the people and and people create social institutions and systems and structures. Ah, that we share in living in this world, you know? So from that perspective, I'm not surprised and and iniquity is a mystery. The Bible teaches us So you know, we continue to be surprised that I was manifested so but It's something that we can bank on and think about it. Kevin AL Hole, Ah system of society is around good and evil. Yes. Yeah. Our social structures law, Jewish students, Uh, safety security. I mean, you name it. You know, way designed everything around those two realities that are side by side. Jesus. Well, and when we are when we're looking at even the very intricacies of the protests you have. We are dependent upon free speech and even to some degree demonstration of that free speech. To bring about social change, and we need law enforcement to faithfully provide the cover so that such demonstration can occur. And yet it is the person of a law enforcement officer that is pictured in that video that Has so Just rip the scab off of America the last few days. That is the very source of the anxiety that's here. And so, ah, the good and the evil and the the ability to I guess trust that law enforcement is going to be reliable. Certainly impacts the way people view even what we're going through right now. Ryan, let me switch the the same question over to you. Um, what is the From from a from your perspective and your younger than Dr Bernard. Obviously, you serve in a different type of community, but from your perspective, What is the church doing? To advance the discussion of race or improve the issue of race in America. And where are we? Where are we not? Yeah, And I would just say I'm really thankful for Dr Bernard's Incite Wei have the scriptures, it explains. Um In an injustice, and it explains the Imago dei, which is why Injustice and racism is so offensive to God, Uh, back that God makes man and woman and his image in like that. You know, that's the doctrine. Like is everyone people value people were infinite value, infinite work. And and so I think that's the starting place. I think the church All right. At times does beautiful things. And at times, you know, like you shared Kevin I a white Caucasian pastor. We would have diversity in our congregation. And yet when I Teach on the issue of race. That is the issue that gets more pushback than anything. I'm so I I you know you you've you've heard some myself We preach against Ben. The on ly.

our church HM all my past with that one maybe I'll buy permission errors guided us well we have one there are so far we got hit early on but it did allow me to have it to really see what was going on early on eight eight eight give me a hand side to many people getting half a chance the fact that the city was very ill prepare if they were not trying to contain it but I was frustrated for entire week because I couldn't understand what I knew who who had just based on the central schools connected to who and there was little crazy thing going on and I realized after a week of work trying to contain it all they were trying to do was to spread it out so not everyone will get at the same time so that was a bit frustrating it should be but it was scary we don't really know as much as it began as we do now to hear your song got it you know it is walk by where all are and if it wasn't for the lord will give me their stability it would have been Joe soll tough yeah hold talks I'm not sure if you heard the doctor air Bernard's story with us but he actually had a very severe case of it and thank god they gave him the hydroxy Clark when he got the treatment and he he got well and he's back he's back to his duties now at Christian cultural center but this really has touched a number of people I keep I keep reminding those that are on both sides of this that we we you know it's because there's a lot of questions now that the antibody testing is coming back and we're seeing that millions more people had it then we realized and that makes me ask a couple questions how early did it get here I think we got her a lot earlier than we thought it did and the fact that we've had nearly nine times the number of people died that died in nine eleven this is going to be something that is with us in terms of its impact much longer but pastor I know that churches in particular have had a really rough go during this time I'm curious how new life handle that that your church in the Bronx what did you do have your people a walk through this season and kind of what did it show you about ministry that you needed to maybe do differently than they had been before or or not it's an excellent question Kevin the fact is that we have all the life and we have to get it integrated the fact that we got hit so hard so quickly Barbara so shorthanded with staff because they were all sick right so we'd have to move online we we actually shut down its first a week before he was required to consult because I saw how quickly it spread it spread like wildfire in our church so we went online we started going virtual small groups we literally follow up with everyone who has ever been to a church which is a few thousand we will those who were up and going and they were still healthy they helped us to make phone calls to build even some of them there were six all calls to to reach out to we wanted to know how you do it do you need prayer is there anything that we could help you where you know relationship is the glue of the church and we believe that we can continue doing this you know you have been set the church is the hope of the world all right let's change that the mobile apps church is the hope of the well I like that Edsel cook done for exact moving to action people it's about we're making a difference will make a difference so many people refer got special at the York city therefore every level you know all the government government and business at every level people are just so hungry okay okay we do not yes Kevin you will have to work on eleven churches were packed out there Tuesday after work three weeks later to where you can be our churches be ready with the presence of god with the power of god and the word of god cashews you to hear from Kabul that airport so we could speak to the very heart so the people that are hungry and thirsty for something more well you know it's interesting that you talk about the mobilized to church because I think as I've had the different pastors on to to chat about this one of the things that we've noted frequently is something that Ryan Basil said from emergency and he said that pastors are kind of hard wired to want to move towards people in time of sickness and emergency and death these are all things being exhibited over the last few weeks here and yet this is this is the one time in human history where government and the allowance of moving towards them has been prevented and I'm just wondering you know you you have your PhD in counseling your people person you you you're you're good at helping people in times of need how did you deal with the inability to to move towards them I tell you Kevin at the facility but at the same time off or how to do a lot of soul searching I had a look at folders I'll have to look at it to go out to business as usual it was like scary the pastors have documents I I don't know it best be put out but many pastors center city all have dark or leaders and so we would have to actually will help me get over a one point on how to save me a pastor whose hearing right now I thought they were about the finances for the church to worry about whether my church she struggled to stay during this time and the lord spoke to me six of the idea the pastor of the church how to surrender the church to prove their pastor to that shepherd of the church which is Jesus he's the one who built the church not the actual so cool and so that just relieve a lot of anxiety the other thing log cabin that I I look I I hope it's gonna sound jewels way out but he swore in and that is months before this happened the lord spoke to me clearly even in the media but I I will prepare a city your there will be a call to a seven year old prosperity seven years of a crack house but Cheryl said with Joseph so we're going to go up to seven years skinny cows that will get you perfect house April eighth six one moment when we rejoice ought comic you will when you spoke to me that word I I have to be all secure I don't want to share with nobody yeah thanks for one tough choices private insane when it happens then everybody.

"Glad to be with you and glad to be still hoping to provide you some Avenue of encouragement I've been really thankful for my friends Dave Watson and Ryan Basil and Max Lucado and Jim symbol and David Ireland and others that have come in shared with us this this is this is my next guess is repeat trip during this crisis but I don't think we can talk to some of these folks too often because that they're observing what god is doing I think that's exciting Tim Lucas is the senior pastor at liquid church a church that loves New Jersey and a church that loves Jesus and the combination of the two is insufferable a contagious if you ever get around this guy Tim Lucas because he just he sold a positive all the time just with Alexis Macklin or somethin say Tim you ever ever have a bad day Hey Tim welcome back good to see great to be with you Kevin Hey we got resurrection hope that's true that's true well and you know what I've I've been in touch with a few of the shepherds that you know were active this weekend and of course this season has presented a lot of challenges especially for smaller churches that may not be as technologically savvy and so forth but one thing that they are all reporting is that no matter how meager the effort may be if it's nothing more than just turning on a webcam and and just sharing a message nearly every pastor I'm talking to is having more expanded reach than they've ever had before sometimes it's multiple upon multiples more and that tells me something him it tells me that the gospels at work in people's lives absolutely people are more hungry for hope than I've ever seen in my lifetime I mean I can remember back to nine eleven if your number you know churches were packed for a few weeks after nine eleven because people were bruised in days from that body blow but this can damage has had a different effect I think there is a the uncertainty that people are dealing with right not knowing when it will end or how it will end is loss isn't this kind of this epidemic of fear fear is spreading faster than coke and you know this is a moment where our church can stand up and say Hey this is a chance for us to come together and choose faith over fear and experience god's peace over panic yeah no that's that is so well put and I'm grateful that the that the church as a whole is embracing this I was speaking with your friend and mine Ryan Basil the last week or the week before forget days run together now I can't keep track of which days which but he was telling me he said calved the challenge for shepherds is that we have a natural inclination to move towards people in these times and he said the fact that we're not able to do that is really forcing in some in some instances it's forcing the the shepherd himself to deal with his faith in a different way but knowing that even in the desire to do ministry in the desire to encourage people that there is an element of faith that's having to be relied upon that even those who do the ministry have not seen before absolutely you know we're telling people Hey we all need to socially distance of course but that doesn't mean you have to relational distance and like you said and you begin speaking cabin there are pastors out there who are innovating whether it's a Facebook devotional to start the morning all I'm saying pastors log on and say Hey let's eat lunch together just jump online and I'm gonna share from the scripture something that's part of my heart is really a moment I think with this crisis has done is it's been an accelerator the church choir large has been an analog church of course for hundreds of years and you know leading churches had a digital presence what this crisis has done is it celebrated it in other words what was gonna happen in five years as happened in five days overnight yeah overnight and praise god the Holy Spirit still travels through pixels you know streaming streaming Sunday services like the tip of the iceberg there's this whole level now online digital presence that yes pestering looks desperate right now it's a little bit of cyber but I am I was shocked on Wednesday we had a communion service online and we said the people hate our pastors are gonna read some scriptures were gonna walk with Jesus towards the cross and then we're gonna celebrate communion together well you know people are done recent tell us what you're using for communion posted on everyone as grape juice and cracker yeah well people have you know trysts gets and Gatorade Graham come to Central Park on Sunday and for those that don't do not have a local body to be on the fox broadcast channel with Michael W. Smith and for twenty seven minutes in what was your early as I watched it back later Tim what was merely the quietest broadcast from New York City I've ever heard put out that like literally when when they went live to the camera it was just some birds singing in the trees he was in front of the shared its purse hospital there that set up in Central Park but my goodness the first simply to just say there's hope in Jesus and New York City and whoever else is watching we're here you know with with that message I think you're right I think people are desperate and I think it's a unique time for us to be what the church probably should be all the time but we're giving we're we're being given a different opportunity now we're speaking with Tim Lucas is the senior pastor at liquid church in New Jersey and yes it is one of those churches that has a hip cool single you know word name which Tim's got a whole story behind but Tim you really do have a desire to have a campus in in every county of of your state and you've always been very much about bringing Jesus to the state of New Jersey talk to us about how that kind of took on new life this week with the state itself well you know obviously with the or the doors are physical B. buildings being closed to the public I think it was a chance for us to say Hey our church from the very beginning has never been about buildings it's about building people up in Christ yeah and so we've made a very quick and we were blessed to partner with convoy of hope disaster relief ministry and and we had a tractor trailer twenty six thousand house relief supplies are arriving so we turn to our main church building our broadcast campus into basically like Joseph's storehouse you know during the famine in Egypt just a start up those supplies and then distributed them to thrive and Lisa were in crisis and hurting inside preached from that in genesis and it's a guy this is our moment for the church to step up and stand out in really bring hope to our neighbor's doorstep well I have an appreciation for that Tim Lucas and it is it is it is grown on me I I will say this it has grown in my mind in my thinking and my heart over the last four and a half weeks that we've been in this process because age is you relate as we talked off air as everyone knows this is not been an easy thing and I I am even cut more to the quick when I think about how I get frustrated with hal on easy it is for me and then I speak with doctor Bernard yesterday who has been through the worst of this it made it to the hospital put his hand put his life in god's hands and said I'm ready if if it is your time now god spared him and I pray that god spares many many more but friends this is this is part of the reason what Tim.

"Liberating confusion amplifying truth and pursuing fair Kevin coloring as we S. Ryan Basil senior teaching pastor at emergence church in New Jersey I happen to be a huge fan of this place I love the fact that they are so gospel centric I love the fact that they do things intentionally and they believe that god largely does it that way too and Ryan as we were going to break we were talking about how this little nasty thing called covert nineteen has just blown up personal agendas and even sometimes I guess in ministry sometimes that stuff creeps in but you didn't get a chance to complete your thoughts I wanted you to finish that one fully yeah well I say you know our agenda was you know finish back you big celebration at that this all happened and you know we were tempted and and there's nothing wrong with this I'm sure a lot of churches have done it we were tempted to go okay we'll do we address this specifically but the the more we look at but passion the more we saw all the most horrendous event in human history the execution of sonic art and the hope of behind it and in some ways we will mail you could've been in a more perfect all of the Bible for the S. and is it a bomber to not be gathering on Sunday yeah hi I'm this is extremely and yet I'm getting emails each week from people who item by the church for years would never come but watching it digitally are seeing it go out over the internet and we're we're saying you know from two thousand people who come on Sunday we're we're saying twelve thousand people on a Sunday now feeling the sun and okay in some ways this is allowing us impact we we never dreamed us as people are home and have their computers open so is it what I want to do or is that how I would call the profit no but I do know god sits on his throne and he's wiser than me and he is still more than I can ask or imagine even even through the S. not which you know we we ultimately all the god who goes from the tenet and if you can do that viruses is not overwhelming yeah he he he remains in control I love that it's so very reminiscent of the language of someone fifteen three which is kind of my life verse but our god is in heaven and does what pleases him it's a good reminder that there is hand in charge that we're not just you know going through this cycle this season without purpose without the reason though we may not be able to identify it in our own way here we're speaking with the right basal of emergence church and Ryan one of the reasons I'm asking pastors like yourself to join me is because I would I would love for you to give a word of encouragement to people that are listening today and maybe haven't had anybody to encourage them and in a day or so you know I I think one of one of the reasons I'm I'm a Christian Chapman is data and AI alternative you cannot pastor is because we have a world to go thank god it is not failing in our suffering god's not losing in our struggle tract good how god got a lot of our attention right usually most people turn to god not everyone but a lot of times you could turn to cops because things got heart and one of the things I guess to current call for to encourage that salute one is one is don't don't necessities it's a unique time to really think about what's most important and we might actually even half the time to pursue it and then secondly is we have a god who in Astana one two across and suffered and struggled and because of that he's able to minister to us in the weather turns IT in waters gloomy for the frustration of a loved one who's struggling or if we ourselves are Jesus Jesus has struggled and he's evil not to just offer you advice from the clouds somewhere he's able to offer you comfort because he himself has struggled in his office and and I I just find that incredibly compelling about the Christian K. but we've got to walk where we walk well and I think that those are words that need to be candid north Americans don't like hearing we we don't like hearing about struggle and we certainly don't like hearing about suffering and yet you've maybe god needed to put the whole world in solitary confinement for a few days to get their attention you know C. S. Lewis is famous for saying that he whispers to us in our comforts but he kind of screams at us in our in our pain and and maybe this is a way that he's working with people's hearts that he cannot get in any other way to pay attention to what he has for them which is the ultimate message of hope which is where you started that last answer I'm so grateful Ryan real quickly just a few seconds left of people want to join your digital service on Sunday what did they do where do they go they could check out our website emergence NJ dot org or we have some avenues on YouTube or Facebook emergency church on Facebook is probably the easiest way to see it but if you want to the website all right right Basil thank you so much.

"Than one of my children express great discouragement at not being able to go to school and that has nothing to do with the fact that their mother or dad may or may not be tougher than their teachers are in some of the things it's actually been the been other things just the monotony of life the not being able to really go anywhere and do anything not seeing their friends there's a lot of discourage meant and if it's that way for young ones I'm sure that it's that way for many more of us which is why I've been thankful that we've been able to have some of the people like Jim symbol on Tim Lucas and they want to stop by the microphone today I have a new one for you Ryan Basil is the senior pastor at emergence church in New Jersey I believe the they have four campuses if I'm counting correctly but Ryan it's been awhile since you've been on the show but we're always glad to have you thanks for being back thanks Kevin always great to be back really now I know that of all the people I've talked to so far if there's one house that's completely organized and has not had any problems in the in the quarantine house it's the it's the Basil household right tell us tell us you've got it all figured out past Ryan yeah it's it's a it's a well oiled machine over here now we are we are adjusting to the new weapons in and near normal like everyone else unity I think you know the stomach cannot I have five kids and so we we walk up and became you know five home school teachers three grades and or or the issue of it we only had two or three computers and so now we're trying to manage the technology of five kids on three devices and get on my wife's got her phone out I've got my phone on my work laptop and we're juggling does things the first couple days a lot it was interesting to figure that out well N. as is get out there and that's an interesting place to begin because the computer thing really I mean right I I think you and I are not that far apart in age when we were kids we did almost none of our homework on computers and now with the three that we have in three different schools they all have to log in and do something every day on on some sort of remote thing so it's it's not only the change of everything but it's the logistics and it's almost like Carol mark what's the post said a couple weeks ago on her Twitter feed she said you know I can handle with the reading of the literature in the talking about the math problems in the working out the science formulas it's the five thousand log ins that I can't remember to the two different things it you know it gets us it's it's the older kids are are a little bit they can navigate with a little more the younger the younger ones are so hands on right and even little things like reading the directions you can because you know you you don't even literature so they understand that and so those things is that the type XXI swell okay so on top of being a home school parent now two of five kids you still have to have got a congregation of a few thousand four different campuses and all that goes with that you've also had to have interaction with your staff and and other things I'm just curious from a ministry perspective how is cove it impacting what do you as a senior pastor with a great heart for your people are are dealing with yeah and and there's there's a number of chances cabin you know my my weekly returns are are radically different right now there are some things the strain on you know on Monday morning we would go in and meet the staff and praying and god spend some time to get out the week before and trying to look ahead we we tend to start the week like that well now we all do that on there Asha knowledge of some of those things were able through technology to to continue to do but many of our rhythms our our change I've been saying I think the the oddest thing of the whole the whole event is as a pastor in crisis your your reflex instead go into right after go towards those who are hurting to go towards those who are struggling and suffering and it because of what we're dealing with you can't and that's probably one of the most disappointing things you can pick up the phone you can call up but you do feel a little hopeless as far as the ability to go in and be when church people why don't why don't most of us became pastors so right for that that's that's on the reality well in in in the in the reality of that then what has god been talking to you about in terms of I and I know that to happen know that you've been in a very long series and and the book of Matthew and you've been working through it very diligently and and you want to get you know through the agenda that you have but how is the interruption of life on the largest of all skills that I've ever seen it interrupted by how how does that change for you as as as a teacher as as someone who's trying to serve that body yes and I actually really like he asked the question are part of my agenda that are that are completely blown up right so you know we we've been teaching thank you sat through the book of Matthew for about a year and a half with the hold that we would finish on Easter morning and you know we just heard a huge celebration together as her walking through that and bring.

"I have been blessed to hear you every night on the radio. I think she listens in the overnight hours. She said just this morning. I heard you speak about how it seems like evil is winning. Then you mentioned a song that I missed the name to. I wanted to know the name of that song. God bless you man of God. Well, Suzanne God bless you lady of God. Because I did. And the name of the song is called living. Hope was talking about it yesterday. And the author of that song. And it's on his brand new Colonel is a worship leader by the name of Phil Wickham WICK. H A M, and the part that I that I made reference to was a quote from one of the lyrics that she was just referencing there about evil winning because that's what it looked like when the cross. You know, you get to the evening of Good Friday. Jesus is dead. And he's been taken off the cross is put in the tomb the whole world. Newell has one. But then came the morning that sealed the promise you're buried body began to breathe. And out of the silence. The roaring lion declared the grave has no claim on me. That was what I called yesterday. And again, it's from the Phil Wickham song called living. Hope you can see it at I tunes or wherever you get your music from anyways. Hey, Suzanne, I hope that's helpful. And I'm so grateful that she was listening. I'm so grateful that you're listening friend at whatever time of day, or whether it's on the podcast, or however, you get us. I'm always grateful that you make the effort to connect. And I so I was waiting this morning to see where we were at with our effort to try to rescue these one hundred children that are in need of food for the coming year. Because every February we help food for orphans rescue the lives of children sixty million go to bed tonight with not enough to eat go hungry. Many of those will go seventy two hours without eating anything. And for the last number of years we have banded together to feed more than one hundred kids each year. And so we we have one hundred that are hungry today. That actually a many less are now hungry because after just a couple of days you have now fed seventy six children of the one hundred. And I'm I could not be more grateful. I could not be more expressive in terms of saying, you don't you have you have no idea. What what difference? It's going to begin to make in the lives of these kids and every single one of them going to be. Exposed to the gospel have Jesus explained to them. In many instances live in a orphanage where the gospel is part of their regular routine what they do on a regular basis. So there's gonna be some learning of the bible and learning of God's love for them on a consistent basis. And every partner that food for orphans works with follows that same model. So Gary Van Dyke will be back with me today with some more stories and probably things that you have not yet thought about, but I hope that you will make that call to one eight hundred two four two zero zero six nine one eight hundred two four two zero zero six nine worth we're within twenty four children of hitting our goal. And if we have as many gifts coming yesterday today is came in yesterday we will hit that goal before the weekend. And that would be a tremendous gift to give to those kids. They could begin eating by Monday. If we if we if we hit the goal Sunday night there they're all eating by Monday. So eight eight eight hundred two four two zero zero six nine is the number eight hundred two four two zero zero six nine now, I was thinking about something and just for for for a I thought here today because I like to start. The two hours that I have on the air like to start with I thought of some sort, and I was I was contemplating and we were doing this in our small group last night. Actually, we were contemplating the meaning of the verse in Matthew five verse thirteen where Jesus said you are the salt of the earth. If the salt loses its saltiness, how can be made salty again snow longer. Good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under foot. And if you look at the if you look at the picture. That Jesus is using in this. You see a very wide range of salt. The salt of the earth. You've you've heard that he's he's a he's a salt of the earth kind of person. That phrase that expression. Some people forget, but salt was a currency at one point in time. That's how valuable it was. The the idea and you needed it for everything. So you needed it to preserve meat and to keep, you know, different things from going bad, so salt, and I didn't know this until. I just had to explain to me in a recent sermon. But. Salt was a currency that some people were paid in. So it was valuable in its in its raw form, it was it was wages. It was a treasure. There was something about it. That was worth having. And my friend Ryan basil who's the pastor? Emergence church in New Jersey. In his thinking on this said, you know, there's only two things that that causes salt to become ineffective. Because I don't know if you've ever noticed you buy one of those cans of salt at the store, you know, with the umbrella grow on it, and you keep it in your shelf. It'll stay salty for thirty years. But two things have to avoid coming into contact with the salt in order for it to do that something that compromises it. And something that waters it down. And if we're talking about what the salt of our witness is of our life of our example of who we are of how we how we conduct ourselves around other people. If that's what we're talking about. When we're talking about who we are as believers in being salt to others if we get compromised from introducing an ingredient into our witness that brings it down. Renzo lose its saltiness. That's the only way salt loses its saltiness as if it gets compromised. Something else gets in it that doesn't belong. And the other ways to water it down.

Good for anything. If it loses saltiness, but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot becomes gravel. And that's what we do with salt that we can't do with do anything else with it becomes. It becomes literally are gravel it may melt some snow, but that's about it. And this word picture of salt being wages on one end and roadkill on the other just struck me.

"ryan basil" Discussed on AM 570 The Mission

"Now, I was thinking about something and just for for for a I thought here today because I like to start. The two hours that I have on the air like to start with a I thought of some sort, and I was I was contemplating and we were doing this in our small group last night. Actually, we were contemplating the meaning of the verse in Matthew five verse thirteen where Jesus said you are the salt of the earth. If the salt loses its saltiness happen to be made salty again, it's no longer. Good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under foot. And if you look at the if you look at the picture. That Jesus is using in this. You see a very wide range of salt. The salt of the earth. You've you've heard that he's he's a he's a salt of the earth kind of person. That phrase that expression. Some people forget, but salt was a currency at one point in time. That's how valuable it was. The the idea and you needed it for everything. So you needed it to preserve meat and to keep, you know, different things from going bad, so salt, and I didn't know this until. I just had to explain to me in a recent sermon. But. Salt was a currency that some people were paid in. So it was valuable. In its raw form, it was it was wages. It was a treasure. There was something about it. That was worth having. And my friend Ryan basil who is the pastor. Emergence church in New Jersey. In his thinking on this said, you know, there's only two things that that causes salt to become ineffective. Because I don't know if you've ever noticed you buy one of those cans of salt at the store, you know, with the umbrella girl on it, and you keep it in your shelf. It'll stay salty for thirty years. But two things have to avoid coming into contact with the salt in order for it to do that something that compromises it in something that waters it down. And if we're talking about what the salt of our witness is of our life of our example of who we are of how we how we conduct ourselves around other people. If that's what we're talking about. When we're talking about who we are as believers in being salt to others if we get compromised from introducing an ingredient into our witness that brings it down. Renzo lose it saltiness. That's the only way salt loses its saltiness is if it gets compromised something else get skin it that doesn't belong. And the other ways to water it down. You put salt in water, and you mix it and stir it and you let the water evaporate. It goes back to salt. Again. It's it's it's not usable. And that's why the end he says, it's no longer. Good for anything. If it loses saltiness, but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot becomes gravel. And that's what we do with salt that we can't do with any do anything else with it becomes. It becomes literally are gravel it may melt some snow, but that's about it. And this word picture of salt being wages on one end and roadkill on the other two struck me. With salt. Are you with salt in my am, I the valuable.
