"Well, good morning again. Hope you're all doing well a couple of weeks ago Sally and I had the opportunity to deliver a few of the kids boxes that Christy our children's pastor had prepared for many of our families with elementary-age kids and it was a it was a lot of fun to stop by a few families one of the families who dropped by a box for the McCutcheon's and and they're two girls and a while. We were there they they they just loved having company actually, so they were talking and sharing a lot with with us and one of the things you were doing. They they were talking about this book They're reading it was about the Titanic home and think about that because one of the things I was become interested in ever since it was the actual wreckage of the Titanic was discovered back in the nineties. What's psycho Titanic? And Iceberg yeah, that's true. Yeah, it hit an iceberg and the danger of an iceberg obviously is there's a whole lot more money that the water in there is above and as we've been pursuing and learning from Jesus in his Sermon on the Mount he's been digging deep down. A theme a key verse rather for this message comes from chapter 5 verse 21 reminds you of that Jesus says this to his friends who is listening and the crowd tuning in as well. Unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law. You will certainly not enter the Kingdom of Heaven any with that. He sets the stage and begins begins sharing six illustrations that we've just finished walking our way through now, we actually looked at five of them. We skipped one because we're going to attach that to another section chapter 7 but six illustrations what this looked like and he says you've heard that would have said this you've heard this from the law of your Traditions, but I tell you this Illustrations and Jesus what he's doing there? He's not necessarily studying the bar higher. He's actually digging deeper beneath the surface. So we come to chapter six this morning and this with this we actually enter the second half of our sermon series and we'll wrap up this series right before Thanksgiving wage or 6 verse one. Jesus says this he says be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. Now this verse serves as a you might see a headache over everything else is going but saying in this chapter at least the next eighteen versus are so two gs continues his emphasis on his desire for his disciples. They have more than a surface level off the surface level righteousness. He wants them to dig deep So In this passage, he begins he starts with looking at three major spiritual activities that signified people's righteousness their piety there, you might call them spiritual markers of in his day and and to some extent Even in our day and he Hey address is the giving of alms which is actually is giving to the poor giving of those in need. He addresses prayer. And the address is fasting. Now for instance this sermon isn't going to go where I thought it was going to go. You know, I I plan for a couple of weeks now kind of what I was going to say not not written down just in my mind knew where I was going to go and then I was working on this and I came to Thursday and I saw something I hadn't seen seen before and it wasn't just so I don't know if it's the Lord. I don't know if it's dead. I don't know what it is to be honest could have been what a date but I saw something I hadn't seen before I was going to talk to the importance of these three spiritual activities because their wage valuable to us as well. Then I I notice something I remember something at least said Jesus focus is not specifically on these activities. He goes deeper. And actually some of these things we've addressed earlier this year. We we we've we've talked about giving and giving the need that's a constant theme for us around here having that outward-looking heart for people and those in need Ted and Isaac preach earlier this year as in the first sermon series of the year had spoke on Simplicity. And and and and Isaac on fasting and detachment. So they dug into the topics that Jesus dealt with on these spiritual activities that are very very helpful for us. But in this passage, I'm going to try to go where Jesus goes and I'd like you to come along with me cuz he's concerned about more than simply these spiritual activities. He said he looks around. He's looking at it the religious leaders and he's looks at the people who have gathered it to listen to him and The wrestling with things see the some of these religious leaders were and he at times take aim to take same squarely at these folks you notice that they were making a really big deal about how good they were of how how righteous they are and two years we'll have a lot of a lot of a lot to say about that throughout his ministry gave you can read the gospel to see that but he also sees everyone else struggling with these same kinds of issues. Because according to Jesus here's a key. Here's what we're going to go why we do things is just as important if not more important. Then what we're actually doing. Jesus says that our motives matter now that's nothing new to us. We've we've brought this topic before but but Jesus goes there. So I think we need thought. Oh they're in this passage. There's a there's a tool that we use around here called the discipleship wheel and it highlights the truth of the iceberg that there's a lot below the surface that we need to wrestle with and this is part of that. This is part of that diagram. I said the very first part of the diagram we start with our words in the left side the top of the triangle we start with the words what we believe how we understand God to be at work in the world and in our lives and and even has he has he speaks the words and then we typically off. Okay. Here's based on what I believe. Here's what I need to do. These good things and in Jesus examples here. He talks about giving he talks about prayer. He talks about fasting you can fill in all sorts of stuff here. Right? But what Jesus does as he encourages them to stop not go directly to the doing but to examine our hearts and in gravity leaderships diagram they call it once. We're talking about the heart. We're talking about our motivation. We're talking about our motives why we do things because those are below the waterline. They're unseen. There's good motives are just as unseen as the poor motives and Jesus addresses some poor motives in this and I I hadn't necessarily view the sermon Mount through not only this lens. But another lens that I have become aware of lately. Grab your leadership also talks about three lies. They call them three lie Idols actually that we believe they're also you may have heard them in terms of a false self a gun embezzled Pennington talks about.

"That's what they've done. They just did on the sermon mount they'll never find an archaeological piece of evidence that confirms the Koran on muscle the part that is the overlap of the Bible understand that there's Never been archaeological discovery that contradicts anything from the Bible. The more we digs more, we confirm the more ridiculous more. We confirm I want you understand that the only religion in the world where we actually want to search out more because the more that we find the more that actually come firms, we already believe every other religion tries to prevent the discovery of historical artifacts afraid that might actually contradict what they believe. This is why the Arabs destroyed all the Jewish. Christian. Archaeological evidence on the top of the sermon of. The mount draw fifty or sixty years ago well documented put it into a garbage heap and they said go look for a kid you not well documented and so the nation of Israel is not insignificant. It's a country of seven million people. It's a sliver, the size of New Jersey surrounded by nothing but Arab to tally -tarian. Governments differing forms of it from Syria, which is basically controlled by the Charlot sod or whether it be Lebanon, which is basically Hezbollah controlled at this point what is Iranian proxy Jordan which is More of a moderate Muslim country and Egypt which made peace of some form at least through the kind of giveaway of the Sinai peninsula not big the issue. But the biggest one is Iran but the point being is that Israel is surrounded by nothing but what you would call different types of opinion, our enemies as I would call them here's one thing about Israel. If Israel lay down their guns the tomorrow they'd be eliminated if the Arabs laid down their guns that'd be peace tomorrow in the Middle East. That's true. If you've never ended. Israel. It's the buydell and technicolor. It's not insignificant. I never allow someone to criticize Israel mess. They'd been set simple if you have not walked Jews walked in Capron if you've not been to have ron if you napping today and Samaria been to Gaza and see for yourself how the Jews are mistreated by the one billion Arabs around them then don't even talk to me. Israel. That's number one number two. It's really important which is that, why is it that the seven million? person. country. With, almost no natural resources that has all the Jews the only Jewish state half the world's jurors in Israel is the blunt of all the criticism, the Middle East it's not Iran throws gay people off the top of roofs. It's not China that is taking over the entire world through lying about a virus. The BELTON wrote initiative or a million. Muslims. And concentration camps understand China has a million Muslims and concentration camps yet more Arab nations care about the abolition of Israel and China that. Should tell you everything you need to know it is the destruction of Jews, the destruction of the law, the destruction of God's chosen people and the destruction of the Covenant that we know Christians have without Holy Land. That's what the Arab. Muslims wont and not all of them but a lot of their totalitarian governments do it and I I want to be very clear that the Melissa Ron President.

"World's biggest quotation marks efforts right to give money to a local organizations that do social justice this work. You know anti oppression work etc.. It's been a massive fumble from the beginning. I would suggest that the reason why is because black capitalism will not save us the the master's tools will dismantle the master's house but also it is so it is a farcical that a man Jay z who has claimed blamed since the beginning of like Colin captured ix sermon mounting of this podium to take a stand you know a man men who claim to support Colin Kaepernick in every way has now sort of sided with the people who have continued to shut Colin Kaepernick outright so the latest latest part of the story is that rock nation and the NFL giving these grants as I say to these local nonprofit organizations particularly in Chicago it was revealed this week that one of those organizations the crushers club the head of that organization is behind some just oh my God wack as a postings postings which you can still find on twitter where she lives matters people where she talks about how cutting dreads will help you know young. Black men do do better in life while she pushes for this notion that that the black community and cops just need to come together and that you know more black people only to become cops. It's appalling to the fact that this organization which was presumably vetted is now getting this massive four hundred thousand dollar grant from rock nation the NFL to continue to do the work of white supremacy. I'm over done. It's so infuriating. It's been it's been heartening and of course not surprising to see people like even a started. I think twitter thread kind of just just again just dismissing and and attacking the notion that like a certain hairstyle that is is it is like equate in any way equitable with like a lower life trajectory or deserving of a lesser trajectory in life exactly it respectability politics will not save us. If someone is not chords you basic human dignity because of the way your hair looks then it does not matter what your hair looks like this is white supremacy at work this anti blackness at work and it breaks my heart that these young men a couple of whom she cut my hair and I was fine with it and it was like Oh boo boo like you don't don't fall for the Okie doke the culture that suggests that that you have not achieved something because of the way you look has always those carts have always been stacked against you and they will continue to be we need to dismantle that assist. You don't need a haircut Amen Amen. Okay well you know on that one with my rage about you know white supremacy and its ubiquity quitting wired up. Maybe that's a good a good place to shift into. Our conversation about life is strange to episode four but before we do that. Let's take a real quick break a feminist frequency radio listeners why not join our patron on community at Patriotair. Dot Com slash FEM freak seriously. What are you waiting for. Welcome back so we're now four episodes into the saga of the Diaz brothers in life is strange to a quick recap for any of you who may be less familiar with the series series just to give you a little context in episode one of life strange to Esteban Diaz. The father of Sean and Daniel Diaz was killed by a police officer who we need needlessly drew his gun and fired during an altercation between the Diaz boys and a bullying neighbor. This tragic incident also revealed to Sean that his younger brother Daniel possesses some kind of telekinesis powers as Daniels shock and rage in the wake of their father being shot took the form of a massive shockwave that overturned cars and let the immediate area looking pretty devastated to protect Daniel Sean takes him on the road and begins heading south planning to go to the lobos host the place in Mexico where their father came from episode three which we discussed on a on a previous episode ends with a violent and chaotic altercation the leaves Sean unconscious and when episode four begins we find that he's in a hospital and that he's lost his left eye at the start of episode four for Sean Finds a coded message in his notebook that reveals that his friend Jacob has taken Daniel to the town of Haven Point Nevada Sean Sean waste no time in his effort to escape from the hospital hot way our car and find his brother so I kinda WanNa. Try to go through the episode somewhat net by step here. We can't so first things first the hospital one thing that you have the option of doing potentially depending on how things went for you in episode three is you can talk to in who who was the kind of mastermind a beat behind the the the robbery attempt to that resulted in in in the kind inviolate confrontation that ended Emma so three did did you talk to Finn Ebony. I did not what I did not and so you know one of the things that it's so interesting is when you finish a chapter you see your stats and where your decision stepped up compared to everyone else who has played so far far right and so I had sensitive that wasn't even an option may have misunderstood something but I thought from the beginning that Finn was dead. Oh we'll see see that's that may have been the case in your case that is actually one of the and depending on choices you make at the end of nor its throughout episode so three or at the end of episode three thin can buy in and in your case he may have died so so you may not have okay so then yeah so finn was dead at at that point and so. I think yeah okay good. That makes me feel less leg. I miss something major yeah. Okay I yeah I will tell you that for myself so as for me as Daniel is sneaking Adam Hospital. He's edging past another room and he peaks in. It's like Oh thin is in there and of course I could have gone in and talked to him but I wanted absolutely nothing to do with Finn. I I you did not avail myself of that opportunity so I would have been curious if you had taken that opportunity an opportunity to to learn a little bit about how that played out for for you but good good riddance one way or another to fan as far as I'm concerned yeah although so so one thing I had forgotten. I suspect that I'm so traumatized by this game as much as I love it that after episodes playthrough I sort of black black it out like childbirth. I love the the process hurts so much so I had forgotten that. There is lengthy scene scene setting kind of retha militarization with the characters before the credits roll. The chapter officially starts right so in this you know beginning period where Sean is in the hospital. We meet what is kind of. I'm going to refer to them as like the angel of the chapter and there's usually an angel in each chapter right yeah and the the level of reassurance. I fell after I sing schantz. Stick thin a teenage body in that hospital bed with his. I covered guys to see that black male nurse come in the room. I can't tell you how much like I felt just reassured because so much of this game is not knowing knowing who you can trust and when it's appropriate to trusts to someone and you just have to constantly put yourself well put Sean and Daniel out there right but am quite certain that it's because I am a black person but when I saw this black person come in the room. I I felt like Oh okay. This is someone who will be careful with Sean who will not yell at him. Him who will take some care and it is because of who he is that he's not gonNa have that kind of knee jerk response to him that perhaps other characters would and I just thought that was like it was so lovely. It turns out again going back to the stats. I didn't force his Joey at enforce him to a job. L. Sean ultimately he wasn't involved in the escape attempt but everything he did up to that point. I was just like what an angel of the chapter. I was so glad that Sean had that because man this this was they've all been tough but Jesus. No I agree completely. Joey was a wonderful source of of compassion sorority a kind of a one like human and humanizing presence that you could kind of lean on a little bit in those early moments that were otherwise really you know it cer- certainly for for Sean disorienting and and I mean traumatize coming to terms with the fact that his brother is gone and he doesn't know his brother is safe he doesn't. I don't really know where his brother is and also of course with the fact that he has lost an eye. I mean that's an awful lot for this young man to be shouldering thing and Joey's presence there is absolutely essential and really wonderful. Unfortunately Sean cannot really stay at the hospital you only temporary sanctuary or temporary respite game and it's not long before SEAN SO SEAN HOT WIRES THE CAR and hits the road heading toward haven point where he knows now that Daniel is he doesn't really know what Daniel circumstances are or anything but he knows that he's there and so you you embark toward haven point and early scene has sean just you know pulling over to to get some some some shut eye on his way to haven point and this is where you meet China's eh violently awoken in the middle of the night by these two I kind of call them the good cop bad cop racists white guys. Chad and chat and Mike who who you know they they are angry at tron while they're angry at Sean because he's clearly you know of Mexican descent and and also because he's on their property or you know but cost just in there is I think he represents well with the everything that many many trump voters hate and fear right right now and I knew I noticed when we talked about episode three was a bit of a different approach our desk and I I think played the game kind of maybe as if we were putting ourselves in Shawn's shoes news and maybe you maybe correct me if I'm wrong. Maybe had a slightly different attitude or approach in the sense of of kind of looking out for like like you were more protective player trying to trying to make it so that Sean and Daniel came to as little harm as possible and so I you wonder like this scene. This very very charged seemed that you have with Chattan Mike. I reminded me that I still think it's kind of radical that this game unequivocally puts you in the shoes of someone who is experiencing the anti immigrant you know the just the racist white supremacist rage happening explicitly happening in the United States right now but I mean and and and very clearly has a perspective on it. It very clearly has a side that it's taking but they do. These men do things like they. They ask Sean to sing a song right as like this which is such that kind of dehumanizing request slash demand and you know which to him off the hook or to go easy on him or whatever that kind of threat like sing song for us. I wonder how did you how did you handle those that interaction with those. I'm glad you asked Carol because this was an incredibly hard scene for me to work through and I did want unpack it with you. Because first of all I had to walk away for a bit during this scene sure so so yeah we I'm sure we'll continue to spoil the hell out of this so you if you are listening are planning on place you should have stopped listening now so these these two rednecks demand that Sean speak Spanish and not just speak Spanish Benesch but to say I'm a filthy fief he refuses and then I'm a thief with one eye and so it escalates even more and in this moment of like severe physical intimidation during which you know one of the reading already already lashed out physically at Sean he then said okay. This is your last chance..

"Are pro museums. Doesn't matter what it is. It's fabulous. But then they're always phenomenal visitors and I am very pleased with myself frankly for having invited to amazing visitors. If you've just joined us, I have Bob McNeil spoken word artist and writer in the studio with me and Fred Simpson, poet and percussionist who is a marvelous poet in his own, right? But also accompanies Bob when he is performing an accompanies himself when he is performing with the percussion instruments. And I watched this guy this week. Take a drum that otherwise is fairly small fairly unassuming, very natural. Looking. And turn it into a whole percussion section. This one drum was oh, Honey you just wanted to get up and dance. I'm hoping for those of you who live visit work in the New York City area that you'll go to N Y P L dot org and put in a search for Bob McNeil MC capital any I l and you'll get a list of when and where they are performing in libraries around New York City.

So I think Fred you need a pickup this, Mike, even though you're gonna learn to talk for half a minute. And then I'm going to ask you to do some stuff with Bob here. So give me a little bit on your background. Fred. I feel that eclectic is pretty much a good word. That's that sums me up. I've been a New Yorker all my life, and I really have absorbed so much of the variety of culture. Here have no one favorite music. I have influences. Africa Latin jazz. Well, not in terms of drumming, but John Coltrane there's a very free spirit with a discipline with John Coltrane is an emotion. That's that really is limitless vocalists. That I that. I love also. Well, there's a there's a real stretch from somebody like shock Akon to somebody like Frank Sinatra that gives you an idea. Yeah. I was truly blessed to be invited by congressman wrangles office to these joints are jumping says to be about eight ten years ago. It was the year that Paul Shaffer was inducted into the black entertainers hall of fame, and we were there for that night. But the day or the week before I was there for these joints are jumping which is an amazing experience by invitation only to visit the various musical venues bars pubs clubs in Harlem, and I've wow what a night and so the following week. We were invited to the gala. It was the last event for that summer Harlem, it's called Harlem week it lasts like almost two months. And anyway, we went to the black entertainers hall of fame induction, and that's when Paul Shaffer was. But while that was and he was inducted for how much he has done. You guys know him from the David Letterman show for. African American and that just African American the black because many people are there. They're they're Jamaican there. You know? The american. How the leg up that he has given to musicians, and but the most memorable thing of the evening was that Allenton g. And if you don't know who all the time is people your your education is greatly lacking. So I want you to get out there and find out all about our Tonge and his drums of passion. So if he can't spell phonetically input and his drums of passion. It'll come up can spell it for them. Yeah. You want to spell it for L A T T like Thomas, a U N J that was a breakthrough album along the lines of of. Dave brubeck. Introducing people suggests that that album introduce people to African rhythms favorite album of mine was up facing was that this was the end of August. And I'm going to say it was like eight years ago, maybe and this elderly frail gentlemen, in African garb in a Kaftan kind of outfit that went to the floor with assistance made his way slowly across the stage until he arrived at a store where he sat down the drums were in front of him. He started to play and he was easily in his mind. He started to play and turned into a seventeen year old kid right in that moment. I mean, the energy and the passion and the sound and and he died about two months later. So we really were blessed to see him at. I think. Was his last public appearance that if it wasn't his last that was close to his, but I'm sure that somewhere in there L G snuck into the influences on you. Oh, yeah. So so what I want to do. Now is I want to remind you that there are places across America. I'm gonna say like New York City, and like Berkshire county except there's no place like New York City like Berkshire county. They truly are unique. But there are places where you will find wonderful things going on. But you gotta seek them out and look for them. And I want you to look for Bob McNeil spoken word artists and Fred Simpson poet and percussionist performing, and I'm gonna treat you some goodies right now.
