Spiritualism: A Ouiga Board Story

"Life was not easy in the early twentieth century. And we're talking. Like lack of dishwashers vacuum cleaners. I'm talking about death in. nineteen hundred. Left span is forty nine years old. Thanks to things like childbirth war disease. You name it. So when a religious movement called spiritualism promises people away to contact the dead many of them leap at the chance they miss their loved ones and if mind readers fortune tellers and mystics can help dole that pain. They're all for it. One of these devotees is a middle aged woman from saint louis named emily. Hutchings spiritualism is more of an interest or hobby for emily by day. She's a writer and she's also close friends with a housewife named pearl courant. The two of them often spend their evenings in pearls parlor doing all the normal things women do in the night like gaza or talk about an article. Emily's working on while their husbands play cards in the next room. Then in the fall of nineteen twelve pearls father dies. Pearl is devastated by this and as a spiritualist. Emily decides to introduce a new activity to their evenings. A ouija board. You've probably seen a ouija board most likely some kind whore context. They've become a huge part of pop culture. Thanks to movies like the exorcist. Nowadays most people won't go near them but in nineteen twelve ouija. Boards weren't seen as dangerous. They were one of spiritualism is most popular tools. They look a lot like your average board game. They're flat rectangular board with letters and numbers printed across it and the words yes and no written onto corners. It also comes with a smooth flat piece of wood called a plan chat which is placed on top of the board participants. Sit around the board each with a finger on the plan chat and they wait for spirits to move it spelling out messages. So emily brings this board to pearl's house and pearls like listen okay. I'm willing to try it. Why not anything to talk to my dad again for months the two of them play with the ouija board and for months pearl remains unimpressed. The plan chet does move beneath their fingers. But it only seems to spell out gibberish. Nothing worth writing down pearl calls it silly chatter that is until the night of nineteen thirteen when emily and pearl perch the ouija board between their knees and put their fingers on the plan chat.

First of all the history of even the house is crazy. I mean here we all. It looks like a house because it was a house. It was a townhouse built in the eighteen thirties in this could so useful saint. John's wood neighborhood not a bad little corner of london. Not a bad into the corner. I the reason it became a recording studio was the gramophone company who were the first record company in this in this country in the world in fact so they started in the eighteen nineties obviously completing industry it was not trusted by some musicians and artists. They didn't like the idea being recorded figure. If the unknown of technology but by the mid twenties especially when the Electricity electorates recording act was passed in the nineteen twenty five recording. Just massively took off. I say that because before nineteen twenty five most recordings with just mechanical musicians would crowd around the big acoustic horn. And if you want it relative music to be loud or that musician we just move closer to the whole you know. It's very mechanical. When illiteracy came onto the scene microphones could be used moving moving clo- mara phones and very small basic mixing consoles and an electric driven cutting life so it can change the whole recording industry.

How to Communicate Effectively to Your Team with Patrick Lencioni

"Let's start out with our conversation with pat lynch tony. I got to talk with him about the importance of communication and why it doesn't happen the way we wanted to. Sometimes as dave ramsey says the biggest problem with communication is that we're under the illusion that it's actually occurred we tend to use ourselves as a baseline while i understood what i was saying. And if it's a latte. I think at the end of the day. It's a lack of empathy for like. What does that person see or hear. And how is that different from me. So we we often commit called the fundamental attribution error. And that's we assume that other people are like we are and if they're doing something wrong it's because they have a flaw but if we're doing something wrong it's because our environment is causing it. So i think the more that we can follow the advice of saint francis of assisi and understand others before we understand ourselves the less likely. We're going to have that communication problem you know. Oftentimes in business were moving fast. And there's a lot of work to be done. And so if i'm a business owner and i hear okay i need to have more empathy. I need a slowdown and understand them. More even if i want to do that pat. I don't have time. We gotta make stuff happen. We gotta move. They needed to get on board and figure it out. I'm not here to babysit these people. They have a job paying a lot of money. They should do their job. Yeah that's bad economics and bad mass because the idea. We have to slow down in order to go fast. I i like that because it's not down in order to slow down it slowdown in order to go fast. And when we slow down and make sure we're understood and we make sure we understand where somebody else's coming from we get more done faster when we're just going fast all the time we're constantly going back and having to clean up explain ourselves and it's like racecar driver hugo into that turn and you're like i'm gonna cut time off during this turn you're going to spin out you're gonna end up slowing down going out of the straight the people that know how to slow down going into the turn. Come out of it going gangbusters and so we have to recognize that. We think we're going fast or causing ourselves a lot more problem by having to go back and clean up everything afterward

Indigenous People Are Using Documentaries to Tell Their Own Stories

"You are on indian. Land was directed by michael gonna takeo mitchell a mohawks maker from aqua socity. He also narrated. The film was awesome which the white man calls the saint regis reservation on this line long before the two countries decided to draw line between themselves. Michael was part of what is known as the indian film crew. It was the first all indigenous unit at the fbi. The use of the word indian was a product of the time. So i'm using it in a historical context i'm talking about quote unquote indian as in indigenous. So michael was one of seven indigenous members. Who made up the indian film crew. There was also dibwe filmmaker roy daniels. Tom o'connor snobby. Barbara wilson who has haida north star blanket cree and magma filmmakers morris isaac and willie done so the crew represented many nations members also created a number of important works documentaries like these are my people. I'm a more fog. And i was born on this reservation and i was raised here and i don a lot of traffic times on the other nations in discontinuity and films like the other side of the ledger. An indian view on the hudson's bay company in sixteen seventy charles the second granted the company of adventures trading into hudson's bay otherwise known as the hudson's bay company this charter giving the company an absolute trade monopoly over one million square miles of land. In what is now canada. The indian film crew was established at a time when indigenous people were often the subjects of documentaries but weren't behind the cameras creating the films themselves in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight. A man named george stoney who was an executive director at the fbi decided it was time to put the camera in the hands of indigenous people.

Oversight Board to Facebook: Nice Try

"If you're a very specific type of person. You might have spent wednesday morning waiting anxiously to find out whether former president trump will be allowed back gun facebook if were kentucky or news or politics or spend a lotta time on facebook. You'll probably doing what i was doing. Repeatedly refreshing twitter waiting for the headline and wondering whether facebook's independent oversight board would say the company was right to kick trump off indefinitely back in january after the capital. Riots on wednesday. All eyes will be watching as the board makes a decision that will send ripples through the republican party. Washington dc and across the world the board to be honest. It's kind of what i expected. Kate clinic was doing waiting to see whether this board which is kind of like a supreme court for the company would agree with facebook or not before wednesday they had to. The company was wrong to take something down four out of five times and this decision about trump was the biggest one yet. What were you doing when you're waiting for the oversight board's decision breathlessly refreshing online to see what they were gonna take no. I was teaching class. Actually like i had a horrible timing of coming out directly coinciding with an internet law class. That i'm teaching right now for cornella. This class was at cornell but most of the time. Kate is a law professor at saint. John's university and she more than almost anyone outside facebook gore. The oversight board itself has spent the past few years thinking and writing about how to make something like the oversight board work. I was in class and my my students. Put the link to it in the chat for me. It was very cute. The board said yes okay. Facebook did the right thing into spending trump but an indefinite suspension was not appropriate and they said facebook needed to figure out its policies. Fast

Wet Notes 5-6-2021

"This is wet. Notes here on scooby. Shock radio for may six two thousand and twenty one. I want to start off today with a story. That is a bit of personal meaning to me. And that's a story about what some recreational divers found while diving out in hawaii. Awful and i. Now i have quite a few dives out there. Awful and i and these divers found some unexploded world war two era ordinance. They found two bombs. One was at seventy four feet and the other one was at ninety four feet. The divers immediately notified to hawaii division of aquatic research. Who went out to investigate it and confirmed it was unexploded ordinance the report indicated that the munitions were about three hundred yards offshore. The exact location wasn't disclosed when but it may be in the area of the first and second cathedrals again personal for me. Because i have probably about at least twenty. Five dives onto cathedrals as of now. There aren't any more updates and there was no mention on the divers website and they run many charters out to the site. Let's see where this goes. I recently checked out the four ocean blog to see if there was anything of interest will there was a lot but one thing did pique. My interest for ocean occasionally does a blog on plastics around the world. And that's where they identify articles or stories that talk about the plastic crisis facing the world. Now one article was from interesting engineering and it was written by deora as deamer and this was about plastic eating mushrooms. Yes certain types of fungi can ingest and eat plastic apparently in two thousand eleven some yale researchers discovered rare mushroom in the amazon forest and it was able to digest and break down plastics. One of the scenarios suggest that these plastic eating mushrooms could be placed at the bottom of landfills interesting over the years. There have been various successful experiments. So what's the holdup perhaps speed. It takes times for the mushrooms to eat and digest the plastic and there's also competition for other investment now. Here's a bit of disturbing news that i saw from dima apparently there's going to be a virtual meeting of the florida fish and wildlife conservation commission or dfw see on may twelfth and thirteenth one of the topics on may twelfth. I think it is a two. Our discussion is to review and update the goliath grouper. Now this review is to look at if they should allow a limited highly. Regulated harvest of the goliath grouper. Why well that's a really good question now if you go out to the f. w. website you'll be able to find a detailed Presentation on this review. Even if the science holds up and supports the harvest. I would have to ask if the enforcement is of a regulated harvest. Dean feels that. The economic value of the goliath grouper are better served without any harvest and continue the protection they currently have. Sos thousand island. Well what's that all about. Well for those of you are familiar with the saint lawrence seaway in the thousand island region. Sos stands for save ontario shipwreck thousand island chapter now. This was reported in scuba news. Sos thousand island wants to create an artificial reef off of brockville in canada. Why are they making such a bold proposal. Were there are three main objectives. I an artificial reef will reduce the pressure on the local historic wooden shipwrecks and then second. An artificial reef can preserve the maritime history of ships that had been destined for scrap and finally this effort will assist the local aquarium in promoting maritime heritage and discovery. This is still a long way off but there is some good news in that day of identified a ship that could be used and it is the former canadian coast. Guard vessel the c. c. g. s. mont. Mandy now this ship was built in one thousand nine hundred sixty three and it was decommissioned and sold in nineteen ninety nine. Let's see where this one goes. Well here's something that. I just saw from patty. I think it was on the patty pro blog. Patty women's dive day. Two thousand and twenty one is coming and the tagline on the blog was celebrate the connection between mandy and the ocean. This year's patty women's dive day is july seventeenth 2021. This event started six years ago in two thousand and fifteen and it was started as a way to encourage more female participation in sport scuba diving to date there have been over four thousand patty women's dive day events in over one hundred countries. I'm sure last year was a little tough to get events planned and executed safely this year. More places are opening and travel is picking up. Everyone can participate be on the lookout for patty women's dive day event in your local area or maybe even travel to a nice destination to participate and finally today. I thought i'd give everyone and update on traveling. To the bahamas. As of may first the bahamas ministry of health has released new guidelines for entry departure. I if you are fully vaccinated for covid nineteen that's two weeks from your final. Does you don't need a covid. Nineteen tests prior to entry. Nor do you need to fill out the daily health questionnaire or get a covert test. After your fifth day on the island. You'll still need to apply for the bahamas. Health visa prior to entry. And you still need to get a covert test before travelling back to the united states. Now we're heading to nassau a may twenty six th so these changes make things a whole lot simpler. Hopefully more countries will open up. Like the bahamas. Well that's it for wet notes on may six two thousand and twenty one here on scuba shack radio

What to Do When You Can't Find God

"Several years ago i read a book by a j swoboda called the dusty ones in it. He shares a story about his from high school whose name was stew. Stew met jesus through his friendship with jay and they quickly became zealous. An excited together. They read the bible. They prayed in front of lockers. And stu felt close to god in those days will soon. Aj lost touch after graduation as often happens in about ten years later they reconnected and that was when aj learned that statue no longer called himself a christian because once he went off to college he stopped feeling the presence of now. I'm not here to debate the reality of stews relationship with god or the validity of his conversion or even the role of feelings as they mix with our faith. But what i do wanna talk about. Is this experience. That many friends of jesus either have gone through are going through or will go through and that is the experience of the loss of the felt presence of god. The truth is we won't always feel god's presence. I know some believers who say they've never really felt god's presence. I don't want that to be true but it is true. The good news is this is nothing new. For generations and generations christians have wandered through the wilderness have walked through. The valley of the shadow have navigated life in the midst of difficulty loss and seemingly impossible circumstances. If you are walking through your own wilderness right now. You are not alone even if you feel alone. Saint john of the cross called his experience of not feeling god's presence a dark night of the soul martin. Luther called it. The scandal of god's hidden nece and barbara brown taylor in her book learning to walk in the dark. She says no. One chooses the dark knight. The dark night descends.

"As black farmers continued to lose land and lack resources to continue their work their contribution to agriculture and flew justice are at risk of being diminished locally environmental groups in the saint louis region employ fewer or no people of color even though there are areas of the saint louis region that are close to have black. That's why we spoke to tasha phoenix a former food justice organizer for the missouri coalition for the environment or mc and an outspoken champion for black farmers during her time with mc she noticed the lack of diversity in the local food justice movement and struggle to make her ideas heard so in november twenty twenty. She created evolve. A saint louis base food justice organization. Where black growers could drive and mentor other young black growers one of the things that i notice was the the face of urban egg in saint louis was white but when i started going there wasn't my reality my reality was they know a black people who late this foundation. They taught me how to grow. They were in charge community gardens. There was a grocery store in bayden. Call yours market. That's why learn how to grow as a black owned grocery store in the middle of the so. that's why i learn how to grow and so inmate. I'm like man this narrative being pushed it's incorrect. Not only is it incorrect about. Who's more food but is also incorrect from a standpoint of community right so wanted things from community stand point that was incorrect was that the issue was of corner stores. This is why. I said i'm intentional. About full justice closed. We talk about food justice. We can't just look at it and say hey put in a food pantry here is enough or hey couldn't fresh. Fruits and vegetables in a corner store is enough. We have to deal with systematic racism. The hairs allow for these things even put in place.

"This i'm referring to like sisters who maybe don't have as many opportunities to be in leadership roles or individuals outside the same ten people dynamic the people who are typically called or typically considered it. Can it can feel the sting can be more intense for those individuals because they feel like they've been classified into certain group. That's maybe not as chosen as others. So let me read this Email from a sister about this about this dynamic from the perspective of a sister. I've been enjoying this series on influencing especially conversation. You had with gary miller on the podcast. I have had similar thoughts feelings and struggles about aspiring as someone who loves an opportunity to speak teach and lead any chance i get. I'm also a woman which interestingly adds another dynamic to my leadership struggle in the church. Because i will never be called to be a bishop stake president or otherwise though i would love the opportunity under different circumstances. I'm also a mother which means the majority of my influence is spent with little people who don't appreciate it and i have very little time to create influence or develop my skills for influence elsewhere. Maybe you can begin to see how. This struggle multiplies in womanhood. Additionally i've applied to the seminary is to program because i am a qualified public schoolteacher thinking that i could have the desired influence with students but alas because that opportunity is given the inspiration much like a calling. That didn't work out either. I remember listening to a conference talk. Not many years ago where the speaker invited us to be ambitious for christ. I nearly fell out of my hair. That's it. That's exactly how i would describe my feeling. I just want to be ambitious for christ but honestly that's not very easy when they stick you in nursery. I never say no to a calling. And i tried to magnify each one but i'm just trying not to sugar coat this okay. I didn't start out writing this email to tell you all this nor did i begin writing with strong emotion but it's frankly difficult not to feel some bitterness.

"As stressful. You lose sleep and on and on. so why. Why would anybody even want that calling or want leadership calling. Just gonna add more to their plate. Well according in i timothy three one that says if a man desire the office of bishop he desires that. Good work right there. It is a phenomenal work. I'll take a little bit more about this. That it is a remarkable work like yemi time as a bishop was taxing grueling difficult and men. Life's shirt became more simple once that was released but it was phenomenal. Like i literally sat across the desk watching the savior transform. People's lives like it was remark much as one of many of the miracles eyewitness on a constant basis right. But here's this. let me let me take it in a different direction with this of. Why would anybody want to lead while. There's this Some there's this organizational dissonance that crept up in our culture. The purpose of the church of the restored gospel is remarkable. I mean can we just all agree on that like stepping back and looking at what the church is trying to do or what god is trying to do through the church. I mean that is remarkable when you consider the ordinances when you consider the saving when you consider the connecting people to the grace of christ like okay. That's phenomenal right. This is my work and the glory. Glory to bring pass the internal life. This is my work. My glory to bring to pass the immortality journal life of man like okay. You win the eternal reward for best mission statement. Okay it is phenomenal now. Naturally remarkable mission a- dynamic vision will naturally produce grand engagement or the desire to be involved there. When i see a mission that speaks to my soul like does okay. What like where do i need. Where where do i sign up. How can i be more involved can work weekends. Like what more. Can i do to make sure this vision comes to pass right. But we have this organizational dissonance when we speak of this grand vision but we also sort.

"And being willing to be real and not just the who in fine. No really. I want to help you know i'm fine. You know like the okay to not be fine but then also that person opportunities to serve back so there were not just pigeonholing people as the needy people. This is not helping anybody. So when you get the i'm fine everything's okay we're great and maybe we've we've hit on this already but any advice you'd get like how do you like. What if you are the ministering brother sister and you're just like i want to get in solidarity people but they're not letting me. Yeah right absolutely working to what he beats not a good point breath. You're ministering assignment right a little bit. You know i understand the need for signing these things. I would encourage people to dive more into natural. Fits for ministering silence and sticking with them and talking to people about what's working. What's not working. What do you need what you need in your ministering assignments so that's part of it but the other part is these things take time right and sure. Maybe you don't want to have someone coming over to your house once a month but maybe you need to be willing to explore that car that and do it in a new way. This is not just you checking up on me and seeing where. I'm you know maybe this is where we can just joined in friendship and have a mutual conversation and accept your rebuke battle and maybe uncomfortable. But maybe that's what it takes to get a solid area getting to know people right. So maybe that's the focus and maybe when they say. Now what do i need. We've got to be better a learning what we need. We focus so much on other people's needs in this church that we don't know what we need your true. We need some times. I don't know what i need. And if you don't know at the time it's okay to say no i i don't even know. That's a great response. I don't know what i need right now. I am so glad to know that you care and if something occurs to me i will let you now. You know and if someone is telling me. I don't need anything i'll say. Yeah you can say. I get it. It's hard to know what we need now. And i love the concept of disorder looking. Just mix it up a little bit. And and i can see in the future maybe instead when i sort of tired of them just coming and visiting once. Not what we like. You know what we could do next month. Why don't my wife doesn't enjoy going to movies. I love going to movies. You come to a movie with me as what we're going to do and then there might just a different context and may spark something. I think this is the magic of administering. The switched ministering brought home teaching a visiting teaching that. We're missing out on your the freedom to do it. The way that serves us and that's why it can become ministering because we're actually doing reminding those needs in a different way right. Let's go for a walk. Let's do something we don't have to sit and do it in a living room anymore so if somebody wants to connect with you learn more about what you do where would you send them so right now. While i'm still constructing my website. I would say i'm on facebook jenna johnson spangler and sosa message. We can connect that way you can find me professionally at symmetry. So l. s. dot com. And you can connect to me from coaching services and other things there but if you're interested in i'm totally open in the salt lake city area the wasatch front if you want to have become talk to a group Fireside do firesides about doubts and questions. And i do it about just connecting and relationship and and these kinds of issues and just deepening our christian journey. That's kind of my wheelhouse so less cushioning have it's probably too much of a softball but it's sincere question. But how has your quest of understanding solidarity made you better disciple follower of jesus. Christ yeah in so many ways you know solidarity is something bed invites. It's not a solitary journey anymore. It's not just about me right. And that's the beauty of christianity. The beauty is that it's not just about me. It gets me outside myself which gets me outside of my own little suffering my own little life and gets me into something connection with something bigger. That's inspirational and so with solidarity. It has completely changed the way that i see service in the church personally because i always have this on my mind to say how can i were deeply. Honor this person. How can i get to know them. Get outside myself on my own ways of seeing things and meet someone where they are and that does nothing but bring me more connection in my relationships more meaning in my relationships and creates a space. Where both of us were me. And the people that i'm working with uncertain can feel more readily probe loves adverse savior. That concludes my interview with janna spangler. Lots of thoughts of perspectives. On this right and i would be willing to bet. There's probably some angles or points of view that were shared here that maybe you don't fully embrace erred. Maybe disagree with a little bit. And that's okay. These discussions are worth having their worth exploring and seeing what we can learn. I hope you've learned something. I'd love to hear from you. What perspective you have around this concept of solidarity or service. How can we better get to this point. Is it necessary. Or maybe services just enough. I'd love to hear from you can go to leading saints dot org slash contact or leave a comment on the post on the leading saints dot org website. And let's keep this discussion going. Because i think there's some rich some rich flavor in in a discussion that may be can help us expand our efforts as latter day saints. You know of anybody else that we should reach out to an interview. I'd love to hear it. So go to leading saints dot org slash. Contact sends a message. Maybe a prep the person that you're volunteering that you're putting their name in so that we can more easily start that conversation and i would love to have more conversations like this to see how we can better lead as latter day saints and remember if you know someone who'd be a great fit for the how i lead segment go to leading saints dot org.

"Today i'm in holiday utah in the home of jenny. Spangler how are you. I'm doing well good now. You were recently recently. Interviewed you for the questioning saints. Virtual summit was a phenomenal discussion of people. Haven't heard it they need to Go check it out and a lot to learn there. And i don't know if it was before or after our conversation you brought up this idea and i think it may be inter woven into our discussion and i thought oh my goodness that sounds awesome. And it's around this concept of solidarity verse service yet but before we jump into that maybe just give us a brief background of who you are and why you even have anything to sail topic. Okay so my name is janice spangler. I live in holiday with my husband and three kids. I am a life coach and i work for symmetry solutions and we are a group of therapists and coaches. Who help people with a variety of things but my specialty is in working with people who are having challenges to their faith people who have doubts and questions and it's causing all kinds of problems with their identity in their relationships and and they work with a lot of mixed eighth couples people whereabouts rocking their world when it comes to their marriage and other things. So that's the work. I do and another thing about me. I am a graduate of the living school which is a program run by the center for action and contemplation and the director of that. School is richard rohr. He's a catholic priest and basically there. I studied all about contemporary of christianity. The roots of christianity christian thought and how it affects our walk through the world and how we engage with the world and to do good and to do the work of christianity. So that has really influenced the way that i look at a lot of things and giving me some unique perspectives. Yeah i think just your history and also your own personal faith journey. Yes the you went through and now you've not that it's all over. Always all of us are sort of navigating faith to subject areas now arrival. Point haven't is for you but nonetheless you're definitely at a point where you've you've you you're in the church you're active you're encouraging on latter day saints in and helping and i'm so glad people like you are out there that because when somebody does go through you know what we probably misnomer the faith crisis when they go through that could that they have individuals who may be exposed himself in coastal to that so absolutely. Everyone needs to be heard. That's my my biggest mantra in all of this is everyone needs the right to be able to do their faith journey the way that that god is calling them to do it and so when that gets messy and complicated were not always equipped knowing how to help people through it. Yeah and so. I'm offering a space where people can work through that and be honest and bring all of the good bad and ugly and have a place to work through that has it's been really beneficial to my life and i just thrilled to offer that to other people. Yeah so let's the ship into this topic of service and solidarity. Let me maybe set up a hypothetical and is one that we're all familiar with you. Know we have a strong tradition of service church. That's christianity rights. No surprises part of our ladder. Saint faith and even our ministering program the teaching visiting teaching type of program where were signed to families. We started their on paper. Like we get it like okay. What if they're sick were there if they need something were there. We'll go visit them so every so often and check in with them see if they need anything and it's one of those things like There's a brilliant program like why aren't more churches sort of organize this way and then it just becomes awkward in the application at times where you know. Okay the ministering brothers or here come on in and sort of this awkward exchange and then the famous words of is there anything we can do for you and they all know we're fine you know even though maybe your marriage is on fire. Whatever you know and and it's just this awkward exchange at times. Where like i really wanna help you. But i don't know how you don't seem to let me in and another example l. share that i've shared before as a few years ago. My mom win for screening and they found a the beginning of of some breast cancer and was really early on. I mean thank goodness. She did other things going to check ups and required minor surgery. It was done and and choose on her way. And i remember having this conversation of like she. She intentionally didn't. Maybe i should make anonymous. My mom's going to mandate here but she initially didn't notify her ministering sisters not that she didn't want to but you know she has four children in the area. We were more than enough support. And she didn't want to cause other people to fuss about her in her situation she was she really was and she's been good ever since right. And so there's this dynamic where we sort of feel obligated to tell people like i'm going through this thing i guess you're supposed to do some form even if i don't need it and even for myself my own life i know i'm rambling here but i'm gonna point but in my own life i sort of. I don't need the in person visit even once a month twice a month or every other month he just doesn't do much for me but nonetheless i sort of feel obligated sort of our faith tradition. Yeah come on and let's have a conversation. Whatever the interview screaming but whatever you know so start us off your what do you need understand about what is solidarity. And what is service and How do they contrast yeah so just to back up a little bit this this kind of started to on me at a living school because they talk a lot about this these ideas of solidarity versus service or charity and and how that works were were trying to help people on the margins right but as i learned these concepts started thinking about these situations that you're talking about rate and how awkward it can be in ministering and and one of the things that came to me was just the awareness that everyone in the church we love especially in relief society. We love to serve and we hate to be served albeit tasks role any day of the week. And right so right right. Yeah and we love it and we feel so good when we're able to give the casserole when we're able to know i mean i can guarantee that the ministering sisters were assigned to your mother when they find out that this thing had happened. Well why didn't you tell us. It's this missed opportunity for us to bring the casserole right and another thing that brought this to my attention is just going through a really dark time of heavy questions about church myself and my own journey. I felt so alone in that. And so there's this dichotomy were so good when someone has something we can see when they lose someone to you know just illness or you know someone passes away when someone is going through a hard time to some extent you know even financially but that's typically only the dish the nose or you know whatever but when we're going through some really physical hard times we were we're so good this is where the strength of our networks come like it's amazing and you do wonder why don't more churches do. This is amazing. The support we give to another. The downside is when you're going through marital problems when you do have a porn addiction when you are going through countless other problems face trials whatever you name it. Yeah we don't want anyone to know that we don't want people to know when we're depressed. We don't want. We do not want people to know these things. And so as i learned about solidarity versus service and this distinction that they were making in school i saying i started to started to dawn on me. This is an awareness that could be so helpful us as lonnie saints. Because i've never even really. I mean i've heard the word solidarity. Not not.

"I think the first one. I listened to was a couple. I believe the packer family. They're sending daughter-in-law talking about their experience of their faith changing and how they as parents and family found understanding and love. The parents were mission presidents in africa. I believe at the time the sun a medical student with a young family. Their story was so helpful to know we were not alone to gain insight and perspective and ideas and inspiration of how to become in our own family. I'm a bishop. And i had a mother of my ward who is a gospel doctrine teacher. She texted me morning telling me she's having a faith crisis and wanted to be released. I had found these two podcasts earlier. And knew i needed to share them with her. I already did. And she's going to start listening to them on the way home from work today. Your podcast has made my calling as bishop so much better than i am. A culture changer. Now hut love that and again. I just loved it. Were giving leaders resources to turn to write content deterred to that they can maybe send onto somebody rather than try and say it again and again and again the same way every person that may be goes through this next testimonial i just completed watching the lgbt's saints virtual summit and my heart is so full of compassion and love for this community. I have a cousin who came home a few years ago from his mission early and then shortly after came out. I'm from a small prominent. Lds community in the middle of nowhere. The cousin of course left his home quickly after coming out. Probably for safety reasons as well as others to go explore his identity. I have always felt uncomfortable with not knowing what to say or not say to him or his parents. I even debated on following him on facebook. Because i didn't like seeing pictures of him with his boyfriend and i was very judgmental and hoping he would find himself and be normal again. Your summit is exactly what i needed. I felt like. I learned so much and have much repenting to do with how i have thought about my lgbt brothers and sisters. I feel so ashamed for my ignorance and lack of even wanting to know more because of your summit i reached out to my cousin and expressed my desire to learn how to be a better human from him and if he felt comfortable would he share his journey with me. So i could understand more. I haven't heard a response yet and my palms are sweating. And i'm nervous is not like i chat with him all the time but i hit send so there's no turning back now again. Those are just a handful of testimonials that come through. And i. Maybe i need to find a better way to share those but we are having a dramatic impact on our community and i want to move this mission fort and the reality is we need your help now. I know many view even nucor leaders are listening thinking. Oh well i give already. And that's great and man. We are so thankful and if you haven't felt gratitude from us would you reach out to me and let me. I'd never want that.

"In there. That email will come to me. And we'll start the conversation. And i also want to take the time to effectively illustrate if i can't be impossible for me to do this completely but we communicate just the impact. We are having okay for several months this year. We've had two hundred and fifty downloads. A month to the podcast. Now we can't really track subscribers and exact people or how long they're listening are all these things but the download you can. You can hit even if he listened through a through chrome web browser and you listen through that and didn't necessarily download it still counts in that download can a quarter of a million downloads around the world. People every month listening to the continent leading states surf you to do the calculation of at that number and how many wards and stakes that represents that would be about. We're speaking to a eight hundred and thirty wards every month and about one hundred and twenty stakes every month now. that's back of the napkin type of calculation. But just to give an idea. Eight hundred and thirty wards one hundred and nineteen or one hundred and twenty stakes now. An agreement goes beyond that because this aren't just everyday leaders that were talking to sure. There's a lot in our audience who don't necessarily have leadership calling but these are leaders that are listening. Consider the impact that we're having on the church as a whole by reaching that type of audience and we can do so much more right so the impact is real. it's there and i wanna read a few testimonials that just really touched my heart. And i get five or so of these a week of just emails and if and if you wouldn't mind sending me an email i would love that. Just tell me how leading says impacted you. Tell me how it's changed you what's worked. What hasn't give me feedback. Whatever it is but these testimonials really keep going in you know. They're hard to take to the bank and cash in but nonetheless they keep us going this. This is wrong motivation for us. So here's a few leading. Saints is been a lifeline for me. The last six months since i found it. I can't thank you enough for what you do. Here's another. I have never really supported any group or individual besides my regular church contributions but you are the exception to my rule. I happened across your podcast. One day do not remember the exact circumstance. But i was impressed with what you were doing. I began to follow leading saints on a regular basis. And after your summit on pornography. I was sold on what you were doing in recovery from addiction myself. The quality and accuracy of information at the summit was impressive. I do not think that. I have ever been disappointed by podcast. Always informative and many times moved by the spirit hearing from real people that are dealing with or have overcome major obstacles in their lives is always inspiring. You doing a great work with leading saints. And i tell.

"But the small donors we try and create value exchange value for value. We have the core leader library with full of pass virtual summits we have a separate podcast stream which were working on getting fixed at moment but it is there and we try and create additional value there but as i've surveyed all the core leaders by far everybody says That's great that you give you know the core leader library and all these other things. But i simply want to donate because i want to support the mission. I wanna help you. I wanna help The board of directors. I want to help this community growth so that we can stimulate more productive more effective leadership in our religious community. Right so sure. There's are there additional things. But i'm not gonna do on those because i don't think that's why people are donating. They simply want to contribute and make this possible and then a larger donors. We need to be in touch with people who can write for figure. Five figure six figure checks and Who have the resources to do that. Or maybe a foundation that it's able to do that We would love to make those connections so if you're if you're listening out there maybe you've a sold three companies and You know you're you're retired in your in your forties or whatever and you could write a big beautiful jack. Would you reach out to me like i. i will take any conference. Any phone call with anybody was willing to to sit down and understand our mission and to help us out. Because i guess i don't want this to come across it like oh. Kurt needs more core leaders. So yeah i'll go help them out. Contribute fifty dollars a month. Which would be great. We'll take it. But also i don't want you to think well if you could. Do you know twenty thousand a year. I don't want you just default to that to fifty dollars a month so hopefully that makes sense but the reality is if everything was to go in twenty twenty one just like it went and twenty twenty. We probably need as we've gotten together as a board of directors who probably need an additional one hundred thousand dollars to keep things going now on the surface seemed like. Wow that's a lot but you know there's podcast and organizations that that require that much much more you know many or of my contemporaries that have our nonprofit third party organizations probably have a budget of.

"Financially. We cannot continue on as we are doing right now. And so the board of leading saints come together and and wise mines thinking through how we could better fundraise reach out to large donors. We could better finance this mission because again there's no mission without margin and we definitely have to figure out how to meet that margin every year so this is how the financial model of leading saints is currently working. We have what are called core leaders. And you're probably familiar with these. The are subscribing donor so individuals either donate to leading saints on a monthly quarterly or yearly basis. That is what we consider a cord leader and those are awesome. I mean i can't thank you enough for the core leaders out there to Contribute to give part of your monthly budget to leading saints so that we can continue on we have about Just over eleven hundred core leaders and again we get as many as a quarter of a million downloads a month to the podcast that we have eighteen thousand people on her email list right so but nonetheless we only have a hundred core leaders again. I'm thankful for every last one of them but we definitely need more help there. What we're doing right now. Is the virtual summits supplement. What the core leaders. Don't meet right so if we only had core leaders we we'd be done a long time ago as far as at the rate of how many leaders we have right now. There's just not enough to do what it is. We do and de just won't work and so we supplement those donations through our virtual summits and our virtual summits do help us get a shot in the arm of funds. That make it happen. There are a lot of work. They're great. I love him. We plan on continuing to do them. And i'll talk about that maybe a minute but it's just it's just not enough that especially because we've hit some of the larger topics right. We've talked about teaching. We've talked about helping individuals through pornography addiction. We've talked about to lgbt latter day saints right like these are large topics that get a lot of attention when we do these summits but they they're done and of course we'll keep adding to them the be made available again and again and hopefully we'll be able to continue to raise some funds from those but as far as those that large that large financial. Sean the arm the future summits we do. We anticipate that they are not going to have as much of a hit right. So we're gonna do a virtual about Leading young saints.

"Heart dot com and check out when the next one is obviously we had to postpone a few because of covid but The women's retreat. They also have a women's organization attached to that and these these are phenomenal. Go back and we'll linked to those episodes in the show notes Get more on that but other than that. I don't see any or specific retreat in our future. But if you have some ideas. I'd love to hear what about Moderated forums where people with the similar callings are leadership responsibilities can ask questions and and create discussion. So this is the i mentioned before This is definitely a community building effort that we hope to establish twenty twenty one to give you more of a formal a forum to discuss again. Go to leading. Saints helpers on facebook and there's discussion there but again it's just not as dynamic as i'd like it to be there's more we could do to really zero in on certain topics or callings or experiences. That would help. So that's coming. So this person asks leading from as far as leading from the bottom up in other words how someone with a smaller calling or no calling can still lead. So i wrote a whole. Pdf on this. If you go to you can text the word lead to four seven. Four seven four seven. And it'll send you a link to a page. Where has a has an article called how to lead when you're not a leader. I think it's something like that. I forget the exact title and that's probably a good place to start. But that's a whole discussion topic on their own. But we do have there. And i would encourage you that. If you're not a leader he should still act like a leader and a man. We got some good content coming up around that so check it there. This person says i'm curious about your whole podcast process. How do you get. How do you get and schedule interviews. How do you prepare for the interviews. What techniques do you use to help the interviews flow. Editing and other things are doing behind the scenes so the short answer is if you go to follow us on instagram. I try and be everyday at trying to be proactive of sharing behind the scenes stuff. What i'm working on. Who i'm interviewing Episodes to expect or content to expect. And so that's a good place to start but as far as the process. You know we all we get emails a lot and we encourage people to send in recommendations of people we should talk to men but there's only fifty or so episodes a year that we have to be very specific gun who we put on there and sometimes even there's some really good people that we don't we don't get on the podcast so but keep sentiment so we get a lot of suggestions that way.

Have you thought about doing some sort of fireside workshop trading tour you could hold polls for where to do them and go to the most requested places so this is interesting obviously. There's current restrictions as far as travel that. Make them more difficult you know. Obviously you can travel. I don't think there's anywhere there's few places. I could go to have an event and have a lot of people. Come just because we're sorta shut down right now right but definitely in the future and we've done in the past is i've I've traveled to colorado to california to where else back east more in talked to someone in south carolina. A to come out. And do you know. I've done firesides and And workshop type things and it's great and we do you know we can always do him inside the church. If it's a official leading saints event done firesides where i've been asked to come and speak and i don't mention or talk about leading saints but we talked about certain principles that are gospel related. People seem to appreciate him. So i'd be happy to come anywhere in the world deeply helps if someone has a place for us to stay and So we can supplement some of those casa make it really cheap but i love traveling different.

"Too as far as what do you do when you are that person who is trapped under may be what you define as poor leadership you know. There's various things we can do in there still opportunities to lead. But if we can't force anybody to listen to podcasts we can't mandate and so we'll just keep creating content. And maybe at some point and i hear about this all the time so many leaders find it or they've heard about it before but didn't really look into it. Then they find it. Start binge listening to past episodes and get caught up. But let's just keep praying for him because they really are doing the best that they can next question. How do we adapt to changing. World conditions without acting outside leaders. Guidance is a good question. I mean that's their. That's a similar question. I've heard before with you all these great ideas. But what if the idea that i have. According to the principle is outside the realm of the handbook or my bishop does want to do it. Right again we go back to that. Fourth pillar that we celebrate divine guidance and sometimes that divine guidances in a direction that maybe leadership scholars would would not agree with. But i would argue that. There is so much wiggle room is you read closely. Handbooks are so much more we could do to really make a difference in shift a culture of an organization that to me. This isn't even an issue like this isn't there's no barrier that would really holds a leader back from being a dynamic leader and one that causes positive cultural change next question. So what's on the docket for twenty twenty one. What is leading saints mission in preparing for the second coming how much happens as exposure or business or feedback and how much happens as inspiration. So this is a good question. I mean at the end of the day leading saints is an organization. We are a inc company right of nonprofit business and so yeah there is a business upon it too much of what we do right..

"Come for me. We don't see us as an organization that now has to go out and figure out how that's done. How to effectively do that again. We may touch on that. But we don't see that as core to our mission but we will go out and find certain principles right. So of family centered. Church supported. effort is going on. We may go out and say well. How does a mother and a father have really effective discussions with a child regardless of what the topic is right. And i'm seeing take those principles and apply them to come. Follow me or this. This family centered approach trite. But we generally don't come out with like the ten step guide to do family centered. Church supported again. You'll probably find a few articles that may be lean that way but if they do it's mainly just to grab some search engine optimization and maybe a little click beatty so that people can actually clicking consume the content i apologize. I'm a marketer sigh. Kind of do that stuff. This is very a current question. The question is with home centered. Church and virtual church where many people can't perform callings like they used to how can leading saints stay relevant and of use because six months of not being useful can lose a lot of interest and people move on to find resources that are relevant to the now and i felt like this recently. Like i'm holding onto leading saints for some reason. When i could easily just let it go as if it doesn't serve the same purpose now as it did one to two years ago so this was an interesting question because i obviously what they're getting at. Is you know you talk about leadership but this is different now it's it's home centered or it's a yet since centered home centered. Church is what they say right and it seemed like back in the summer or right after the shutdown the pandemic sort of flared up. We did try and focus on some very focused pandemic content now. There wasn't a lot of dry areas to go in my opinion somebody descru- without but in so we then shifted back to again. Just being more principle focused and some of those discussions did sound. Like you know this what you do when you meet for sunday school in the sunday school room at church in it's hard to relate to that now we don't do this perfectly but we always strive to stay principle..

"Of divine leadership and recognized that all leadership direction yields to this divine source. So it's fun to talk about leadership different principles interview authors who have perspective for the end of the day we as we know in our doctor and we default to those priests keys. Now there's a lot we can talk about around that but it is a beautiful thing that even though we might have the research even though there's a right or wrong way to approach the situation we may feel a reprieve leader or a any. You know any leader acting under the direction of priesthood keys. They may fill certain prompting they may have an the spirit that leads them a different direction. And yeah all. The leadership scholars will look at that and shake their heads and thing. Now no no. That's not how you do it. But we celebrate that that divine guidance exists and that it should definitely be employed in this effort to be better leaders to lead more effectively. So that is what we are. We connect leaders. We tried and has leadership ability. We present leadership scholarship and we celebrate divine guidance of priesthood keys. So anything else that fits under that. We just don't do not. I'm gonna get into some questions that may be will help you for the understand. Why these why these four pillars are so crucial. But i think the best way to summarize all that is that we're not a training organization. We are a community of leaders and we try and stimulate a community of leaders online through the modern day technology so that we can learn from one another and again be better prepared to lead so that community is truly what we what we aim for. And i'll tell you we have some great some great ideas some things we're looking onto stimulate that community giving it more resources you know right now we have the leading. Saints helpers group on facebook that we get some good discussion there. It's not as organized as i'd like it to be and so we're looking into some technologies and applications that are helpless really stimulate the that community so that we can help each other out and move forward and see improved ability in the leadership realm for latter day saints alright so i recently asked through various social media platforms. What questions the audience had. And i gathered a handful of these and that that will answer and again if you aren't following us on on facebook on instagram on lincoln. Twitter really is helpful..

"That's not what we do primarily because that's not our place to do anything that's the that's the church's role to train officially trained their leaders. Right now i get some of your thinking. Yeah but we don't get any training. Well maybe so but hopefully some of these principles can inspire leaders in your area to seek out you know or put together their own training. Maybe a bishop will hear some principles or read a book and say you know what we need to talk to our word council about how to more effectively minister how to do a home visit or how to address the culture in our work right and then the bishop can go ahead and create the training that he sees fit for his organization. But we as leading saints. We're not a training organization but we do try and enhance leadership. Ability and price sounds more about semantics. But we definitely don't want to leave ourselves as a training organization pillar number three. We present leadership scholarship. We seek out leadership scholars to help latter day. Saints have the most relevant and current research in order to overcome any organizational hurdle. So this is where we bring the experts in right obviously pillar one. We're trying to connect leaders but we're not always connecting you to leaders who are experts. Sometimes they're just everyday leaders who figure something out and it's interesting to hear their perspective but we also strive to find those the scholarship out there. The people who've done the research studies have written a book or have put more time and effort into really to really defusing a leadership problem that we might see in our leadership in the church right and so we reach out to those scholars or those experts and interview amon hopefully that that research that expertise will inspire you to maybe better understand an issue right about pornography addiction or understanding issue about the sexual abuse. Whatever it is and from there you can take it in research more and hopefully again improve your leisure ability and then our last pillar is an obvious one..

"Like i said and we got married and moved out of that war tonight. Sort of left that experience after it was about nine nine months to a year i left that experience feeling discouraged. You know i. I really thought it was going to make a difference and nothing really happened. A wealth whatever we moved on and then before we knew we were moving into this ward in south salt lake. And i was called into the bishopric served a few years in the bishopric and then that bishop was released and i was called as the high priest group leader and during that time when that call came i thought no like here we go again. I'm going to try really hard. I'm going to make try and make a difference but is it worth it like. Is the effort worth it. What's the point. And i couldn't understand why i could walk into any bookstore. Barnes and noble. Look on amazon. Wherever i could walk in any bookstore and there'd be bookshelves full of life leadership business leadership family ship. I mean everybody was talking about leadership in some context but nobody was really talking about best practices of leaders in the church right. You know how to run a meeting. How to mentor. Someone threw an addiction how to how to interview somebody right like nobody was really talking about the tangible tactics and skills and how to be a better leader and i thought you know. I'm not a leadership expert by any means but maybe i could create a platform to bring the experts to sit him down and say okay. Walk us through this principle. What are we missing what we need to learn. And so i went out and bought the domain name leading. Lds dot com and there. It began as a blog and really the beginning. Ingle back to those early articles that i wrote. I try not even though. I'm terribly embarrassed by many of them. I don't i don't delete them just because i think they show where where we've come a as an organization. I read a book like I've got it right here. Daniel pink's drive the surprising. Truth about what motivates people and. I would read the book yet. I pinpoint certain principles and research. That he'd study that i write an article about how that applies to the latter day saint world and leading in the church right and there. It went. That was in two thousand ten when we started when i started the blog and little by little it grew and by two thousand fourteen. Podcasting was becoming a thing and i thought you know. I've a lot of experience public speaking. I feel comfortable behind a mic. So why don't i give that a go and through help of many people understanding that technology the software the equipment. I started the podcast in two thousand fourteen and by two thousand sixteen. We became a nonprofit organization. And that's really where i went. Full time with leading saints and here. We are now in twenty twenty so and during that time i was i went from being the high group..

"Was colds right. At the beginning of the pandemic this was kind of my first big leadership position in the church and really in life in general i. I didn't really know what i was doing. And the pandemic it. Just make things more crazy you know. Listening to leading saints has helped me stay focused and give me some really great ideas and especially like the release decided content late just being able to jump into their be like. Hey what should i do. What our life. Top ten things should i start with. I really helped out a ton went into you. You know how to do ministering interviews. Are they really connect with some with these ladies. Because i felt many times. I was too young to really talk to some of these older ladies and just being a little uncomfortable. So like deanna. Murphy's hard caster episode was amazing and really changed the way that i did everything i went from night today. I totally changed the format. And everything told my counselors how to do it. Had melissa threaten been great l. o. World this is the leading saints. Podcast my name is kurt. Frank i'm your host Welcome you back. If you're new to leading saints let me tell you about what we are and who we are and and what we do here see. We're a nonprofit organization dedicated helping latter-day saints be better prepared to lead and so through this. Podcast we talk all things. Leadership in the context of being a latter day. Saint may be. It's for a specific calling or just leading Home or just being better disciple of jesus christ because i truly believe good leadership is good discipleship and whether we're leading ourselves or others and we have a great website leading saints dot org be sure you're on the newsletter that we send out every week and you can go to leading saints or go to the about page. You'll get it all if you're a ship. I don't know if you know this you can go to leading saints dot org slash bishop and there is a plethora of content if you are a president. I think we have a slash elder scored president and at least study president do slash relief society. And you'll find all sorts of content or you go to leading saints dot org whatever calling voire and right at the top. There's some buttons related to your calling that you could click on and find more episodes to help you lead. Were effectively now. This episode we talk with jeff harbach. Who is a president and ceo of kauffman fellows which he'll tiller but more about that business organization but essentially help Venture capitalist be better venture capitalist and they also do some venture. Capital is well. And if you don't know what a venture capitalist is like shark tank but there's out there that are do what you see on charting. They invest in companies that have potential and hopefully get a return on that. And so i always love to talk with professionals who also happen to be leaders in the church because jeff is also a bishop in austin texas. And naturally you're going to pull leadership principles from your professional life into your religious life and vice versa. And so we talk about this and he gives some remarkable advice articulate. Some wonderful principles leaders can think about in when you're leading in a world of uncertainty because we're in december or december of twenty twenty. I bet other years by this time you had like the full calendar of the next year was all planned out what activities maybe themes and visions and whatever it is but now you're like I don't know like should even plan on anything. I think we can just take week to week right but no that is not. What dynamic leaders do you've got to establish vision even when it's uncertain and jeff gives us some great points in tips and perspectives to do that now for youth leaders. He gives some remarkable examples that have worked in his area. And you may find those helpful to hear this. Obviously what the other youth leaders are doing and so.
