Socialist College Professors Indoctrinate and Coddle Kids
"Now are coddled. They go to college. They were impressionable. They haven't lived in the real world where if you lived in the real world, you'd see your professor named Chad with his long hair spouting off about socialism, playing the guitar in the campus, small eating donkeys and you'd be like dinky Chad. This is the dumbest freaking idea I've ever heard. Can we say that? Sorry, if not just buzz me. Yeah, it's a I want to say something else, but the FCC would find us. It's the stupidest damn idea ever. I lived in the real world. Chad. I've been out playing baseball and having two jobs in some third. Team. You know what I got Friends of mine who didn't do squat. I had a paper route. When I was a kid I used to deliver news days is the statute of limitations open on the tax things Still not because I don't think I paid taxes on that job. I think I made like $100 in three years. But I'm just throwing that out to the IRS may come from me tomorrow, but some of my friends didn't work. They slept till nine o'clock in the morning. Sometimes 11 o'clock I was up at five, putting together the Sunday paper delivering Newsday's working for tips. Therefore, when I got to college, I kind of figured it out that Chaz or Chad, whoever it was teaching socialism, you know, sociology professor on the campus with his long hair singing love songs to students was probably a moron.

"I bring to you. Professional poker player coach. And podcast host jared smith jared. Welcome back to the podcast sir. Hi ben man. Good how about you. I've been doing very well keeping busy. I guess we'll start by. Ask him what have you been up to. Since last time we talked just fokker obviously been playing a lot more live. Actually more live cash than Navy since last time we talked. We were smack dab dab in the middle of the most extreme part of the pandemic so had been kinda locked down stuck in the house Pretty much just playing online tournaments Every day trying to make sunshine's can have that feeling where online poker is so good that everybody was gonna allow these recreational players that were home because of covid. We're gonna run out of money soon. And some of the sites are kind of bleeding dry in my opinion with some of the schedule in guarantees everything. So that's kind of where it was dan a since then everything in vegas. Everything's opened up a whole lot. More and ton of people been here lately so given it was on the strip last night and just on a monday night was just pretty much packed. You know kind of back the old vegas so to speak so You know it's been really good but it it just pretty much. Been playing a lot of live cash in occasional venetian venetian and win tournaments and such and then Just one us circuit ring online. Last sunday congrats man congrats. Why the live cash games streets and not the live tournament Live tournaments fairmount. Those kind of my that was kind of bread and butter. I mix between live tournaments and online tournaments for the most part. But i've actually been pretty down slaying online mostly. I wouldn't call it a big downswing in live tournaments. But i just hadn't really done too much since the since the i tournaments can i came back so in those can add up a lot quicker other just the the lower end binds are are higher than the barbarians. You know the higher end by that. I play online. Of course even like a four hundred live is like a low buying soft tournament. And i really don't play for a play much over to fifteen to twenty five or something on sunday itself had been kind of going on down swing so it's pretty hard to downswing in. Live one three into five cash people ages. They're like literally giving it away. I mean you you can do it. You can down so you can run. Bad variance will will get you. But it's it's you don't win when your win rate is is something absurd and i'm not even super i'm not even very good at cash. I would say. But i was still winning it some somewhere in the neighborhood of forty to fifty dollars an hour in a one three to five combines so it was an adjusted make sure keeps him steadying going to pay the bills and everything in this kind of play tournaments to trinh make more

"The word kingdom was confusing to them and it can be confusing to us. We think of a kingdom we think of kings and queens a physical territory potentially with walls and boundaries and stuff. But that's not what jesus meant when he used the word kingdom. It's not a physical kingdom but a spiritual kingdom. God's kingdom is anywhere. God rules and rains namely in our hearts and over our lives. God wants to bring his kingdom into your life. He wants to be the king of your heart however the apostles were still expecting a physical kingdom because they asked are you going to restore the kingdom at this time. Remember the land was ruled by the romans. The apostles are looking for some magic trick. They're asking jesus if he's going to introduce some sweeping change and overthrow the roman oppressive rule. They thought jesus would do this. Suddenly and they thought god's mission only included israel after all for hundreds and hundreds of years israel had been chosen. They were god's chosen people. The way god operated was that the jews were to follow him because they did they were to succeed and thrive and everyone else. Well not so much. This is how the apostles are thinking. Anyway jesus tells them it's not for you to know the times of seasons that the father established but you will receive power when the holy spirit comes upon you and you will be my witnesses. My witnesses in jerusalem throughout judea and samaria to the ends of the earth. What he's doing here he's he. Flips their expectations with his reply for the kingdom is spiritual not physical. And who's going to do it. You are and most of all. Don't miss this. Jesus says i'm going to spell this one out for you. Who's it going to include everyone. Yes everyone starting in your own city extending and going to the ends of the earth. This is so hard for us to appreciate how challenging this would have been to here. But jesus tells them how his kingdom is going to be. So what does that mean for us here today. Churches not about a building. It's about people. Church is a growing movement. Of god's love in god's people you and me don't take the movement for granted like we take transportation and bottled water for granted. The movement is live and real. We are church. The body of christ movement church you and i are for the world not just for other church. People who was sent you are so church. We have to remember how all this started what we are. A part of the kingdom of god is supposed to be a growing spiritual movement of god's love because love lives. This is what we want you to know. Jesus has risen and he lives and now his love is supposed to live on in us. You church are a spiritual movement. You are a growing spiritual movement of god's love that exists for the entire world. God's love is minimal because we are sent on a mission by jesus four love to share god's love and let people know they are loved by god. God the father sent his son and the son. Jesus sends you. This is what we want you to.

Recent weeks sunday gospels had focused intensely on love and so our message series. We've come to understand that to love. someone is to help. That person thrive without counting the cost ourselves. That's volmer mothers to next exactly what jesus did. Maybe fun way to celebrate. Mother's day this. This sunday would be a selfie with your mom posted somewhere. Maybe descended out the friends but either way. It's a great way to do that since i have been here. I've began to preparing couples for marriage. I really enjoy getting to know. The couples and hopefully help set them up for a fruitful and successful marriage. One thing that always try to ask the couple's is what would it mean for you to love hammer hurt generously in your marriage spent to make them think about and ask the question. What israel love generous love. What would it look like for us to love our kids. Generously the love. Our friends generously deliver parents or spouse or fiance generously married. The answer can be lofty in elusive. Indefinable don't you find it. It's always easier to say how we're going to love than it is to actually do it. You think or if you're married you thought about the easy way to love. But what about when she wants to go out and he wants to stay in when she won't sushi. He wants a burger when she wants to go to the antique store. He wants to watch the game when she asked for him to take the trash cans to the street in the rain. Specific when you drill down about a definition of love this one aspect of 'love slowly rises to the surface. And if you think you're going to list times jif truly felt left by people around you. This threat would be weaved through all the examples we could think of sacrificial love love that sacrifices itself for another weekend. Turn this week to the first letter of john that we read. That will.

"What happened to jesus. He acted with perfect love. And what did he get. As a result they put him to death. Who were they. They were the religious leaders and the roman political leaders as well as a mob of jesus people. The leaders were threatened by jesus. They were threatened by his teaching and by his good works his popularity. They were jealous and envious of him. They killed jesus by nailing him to a across jesus loved and the payment he receive was to die by the most agonizing death possible jesus loved others and his payment were nails pierced his hands and feet. It looked like love had died. Love had failed. Darkness celebrated. The love had lost. It looked as if love was powerless against the forces of darkness. That's the way this world often appears. It seems darkness and death defeat light and life. We see unnecessary. Terrorism violence. we witness acts of poverty and injustice. It all seemed so hopeless. That's the way those who follow. Jesus felt the day he died. They were crushed. They were crushed because they put their hope in him for a better world and when he died their hopes and dreams were dashed. It looked like love had lost but then something happened something that no one expected. Jesus didn't stay dead. Jesus conquered death on easter sunday. Jesus emerged from the grave victorious victorious over sin death darkness hatred gently in violence on good friday. All these things seem to have one but three days later on easter sunday jesus came out of the tomb. He who is love in action could not be defeated or kept down. Easter sunday is the celebration that love lives. God is love and he lives. It is the celebration that love and light are greater than death and darkness. Furthermore it is the celebration that the same power they gave. Jesus the ability to love others is available to you through a relationship with jesus. Christ you can access the power to love the people around you the way you really want to love them. We love people through our own effort. But by the power of god's love living inside of us we can access that power. And that's what this series is all about so i ask you to take to action steps especially if you are new or if this is your first time in church in a longtime or first time ever. I commit to join us in this series over the next few weeks. We're going to look at how we can access the power to love the people in our lives the power to love the people in our lives the way we desperately want to love them..

"Your children to feel your love for them but often maybe more often than you like you find yourself yelling at them or being critical of them. You want to serve your friends but when there are opportunities to serve them or sacrifice opportunities to sacrifice for them. You don't do it. We fall short of our desires to love people. We want to do better if that describes you. The new picked the perfect weekend to come to church. Easter is all about assessing the power to love. Better we see this in the first biblical reading. We heard today from the acts of the apostles acts of the apostles tells the story of the early christian church. It shows how jesus established the church to be a movement of god's love in the world. This movement shattered the idea. God's love his only for certain groups of people. They shattered the idea. God's love is for a certain nationality or for religious people or church people or good people for that matter. The movement shattered the idea. God's love is dependent upon our actions or behaviors. It shattered the idea. God loves you when you do good but doesn't love you. If you do wrong crowds of people would come to teach wherever he went. Jesus drew people towards him like a rockstar. The people who knew jesus knew he was powerful. His power went way beyond physical power. There was a spiritual power. It was a power that seemed to come from deep within him. That came from who he was. Jesus was and is love in action. He brought power to stand up for the lowly and he defended them. He had power and ability to develop relationships with people who were unconnected to god. He had a power that enabled him to feed thousands of people with simply five loaves and two fish through his power. Jesus lovingly challenged people to get rid of self-defeating behaviors. He healed people who were sick. He made the blind and the deaf here. He gave a paralytic the ability to walk and a mute. Boy the ability to speak. The bible tells us jesus spent entire days healing people in a world of hurt. Jesus brought healing to many many people every time you see jesus in the bible you see love in action. Sometimes his love is kind. Sometimes his love is gentle and sometimes his love is fierce and challenging. But every time you see. Jesus you see love and action. Maybe we assume. Since jesus was love action everyone would have positive feelings for him because if someone loves others does good and brings healing to a broken world. That person will be accepted and loved by all right. Unfortunately that's not the way the world works. We live in a thin stained world where justice is not always done. We live in a world where good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to good people you can do good and people might not like you. You can do good and people will criticize you..

The son of guide. The first reading from the book of isaiah is the song of the suffering servant of god and his letter to the philippians. All also reminds us of the humility and obedience of christ the servant of god. He says he emptied himself to assume. The condition of a slave became as men are.

"Our typical message series because our bishop is presenting his annual charities campaign will be picking up our message series again next week for lent. We have a great one called no offense for today. I'd like to offer reflection on the gospel called god's alarm system the leper in sunday's gospel who gets healed knew he needed help. He knew what was wrong with him. He knew how to name it in how to claim it as his problem and not somebody else's he also knew that if he ever wanted to get well he had to let himself feel the full pain and sadness of being a leper and how badly he needed healing and finally. He knew he had to ask for help. If he wanted healing so the leper told himself the whole truth about himself and then acted on it. That's how we got healed facing the truth about ourselves isn't easy and that's why we often stay so mired in ways of living hurtful sinful and devoid of joy. The sole pain that we call guilt is the alarm system. That god installed in all of us to warn us when we are stumbling into hurtful ways and sending. The pain of guilt is a blessing. It can wake us up to what we're doing. It can motivate us to change. It can help us name our sin claim it feel it and fix it that is deal with all of its consequences. And that's what guilt is supposed to do for us. But what often happens is that we try to escape. Our guilt pain by pretending fair or refusing to look at. What's causing it or expecting our psychiatrists. Just take it away. This temporary anesthetic. They seem to work for a while. But it doesn't because it leaves are self inflicted soul wounds touched and unhealed festering just beneath the surface later on an even more toxic way a more toxic form. Now it's true. That false guilt shows up at times especially in caring hearts. It's a soul pain. That doesn't belong to us after taking a closer look. We have to say well. This guilt just isn't mine and then brush it off. But most of the time when the soul pain of guilt comes it is hours. And it's god's gift to help us get our lives right so when rings it's alarm. We need to do what that leopard did names of pain and where it's coming from and don't discount any part of it for it has important news for us claim that bad news and that guilt as our own and let ourselves feel it thoroughly finally give it to the lord for his help and guidance in repairing the sole damage that we've done to ourselves name it claim it feel it fix it. With god's help we can do that. We can make those soul pains and never come back. The sooner we get started the sooner we'll have the happy lives. God wants for us..

We experienced the love and joy that god this third sunday of advent is traditionally called gow days sunday gow detain means rejoice rejoice sunday which is a reference to scripture where saint paul says rejoice always rejoice is. What are the central themes of advent. The reason people can rejoice is because they are people of joy and they give the gift of joy.

Pleasure and happiness are great they can be blessings and rewards in our lives. God created pleasure and happiness and he created us to enjoy them. The problem is pleasure is sensation. Happiness is an emotion and as such. They're temporary jesus came at christmas and it had nothing to do with pleasure or happiness. That's not what the angels promised.

"God invites each of us into a relationship where we are known and loved. When we are baptized, we gain a family called the church. We may think of the church is a place. We simply go on Sundays, but this definition falls way short. At its depth, the church is a people the body of Christ. When we are baptized, we adopted by God. We've become his son or daughter, and are united to one another as sisters and brothers. No matter what our earthly family looks like, we now have an eternal family. We belong. Will we become members of the body of Christ we become intimately united with Jesus and one another. We call it a mystical union because it is different than any other union we can experience. The bond is greater than the bond between our biological or adopted family is greater than the bond we experience with our closest friends is even greater than the bond between a husband and wife. It is a union that even death cannot separate. Within the mystical body of Christ are the baptized on earth. Those purgatory and the Saints in Heaven. We. Are All united in a missile way to more one day? Be Fully United in Heaven. As we all know belonging to a family summit more than a one and done event. Once you're baptized. You're always baptized and will always belong to the church, however our relationship with Christ. Our spiritual family must be maintained in nurtured. We must continue to say yes to the invitation to a deeper relationship with Jesus. When each of us were baptized, we were anointed just as Jesus was as priest Prophet and King. Those are the roles that we are to carry out an everyday life as we follow Jesus footsteps. I think most of us had the understanding that the priest is the one who stands at the altar in through certain words and signs performs religious rights. But all of us are baptism share in the priesthood of Jesus that means that when we come to the Eucharist, it isn't just a priest who is offering the mass is all of us together. Giving of ourselves giving our sacrifices to God. We are also a prophet. was share the good news of Jesus? Christ for those around us by our words by our actions. We exercise this kingly responsibility and duty, but leadership in our homes where we. In Our community virtually everywhere in our tent to make each of those a place of justice, peace and love taking every opportunity, we have to share the good news of Jesus. And Baptism God chooses us. John Quotes Jesus in the Gospel saying. It was not you who chose me but I. WHO chose you? Jesus chose you. He invited you and continues to invite you to be known and loved within his family. Sometimes. We think we're the ones doing all the work. We're the ones pursuing God by coming to church praying every day and inviting others to church. The idea that we're the ones initiating though as backwards. Jesus chooses you invites you and. Pursues You I. What we definitely accepted. This invitation are baptism. We renew.

"As we begin the second week of the Easter season will also in the second week of our Easter message series as a church. We continue to celebrate Jesus resurrection throughout the month of April and into may Easter is usually a happier time of year as winter comes to an end in spring begins who doesn't love the season of spring. The smell of cut grass the sound of kids playing outside the site of flowers. Sprouting up and blooming. This Easter however feels a bit different. We're living in a very uncertain time with Kevin. Nineteen still hanging over us. We do not know exactly how we supposed to act in that way. It is very much like the experience of the first Easter season. The apostles in the early followers of Jesus did not wake up on Easter morning filled with confidence and hope for the future. Instead there were filled with fear and doubt and uncertainty their world has been rocked by Jesus death on the Cross. Their hopes and dreams of the future were sealed sealed with. T. Jesus in the team. So they were very unsettled and anxious much as we are today. They didn't know what the future held but that mood changed. Through the course of that first Easter season as they discovered the Empty Tomb and interacted with the reason Jesus their mood in their perspective on life changed completely is. They came to faith in the risen. Jesus they renewed their sense of hope and confidence in the future. Faith and hope go together. The deeper our faith in Jesus resurrection the more hope. We will have for the feature. Faith IS THE FOUNDATION OF HOPE. So over. The course of the series we are looking at the early disciples and their counts of how they came to believe in. Jesus resurrection and the hope it gave them. We all need hope right now in the firm foundation for that is our faith in Jesus resurrection in the Gospel. Today John Chapter Twenty. We read that. The time is the evening the first evening after Jesus rose last week we read about John in his experience on Easter morning. Later that same night John and the other disciples of Jesus were locked in a room much like us. They felt constrained. They had to stay inside. They couldn't go outside because they feared the Jewish authorities the same Jewish authorities who had days earlier arrested and killed Jesus. Everyone knew that they were Jesus followers so they feared that they would be next. They were huddled together. In fear and confusion Jesus appeared to them. Jesus comes to them in the middle of their fear any offers. What all of us need when we are afraid. He says to them peace. They realized Jesus was not a ghost or a figment of their imagination. He was real throughout the resurrection testimonies. Jesus does very ordinary things like eating and walking and talking to show that he really did rise from the dead. Another piece of evidence for the resurrection is that groups of people saw Jesus one argument against Jesus's resurrection is that the disciples were all dreaming or hallucinating that they saw Jesus but dreams and hallucinations are individual experiences. A group of Disciples Saul Jesus that day. Not because they were hallucinating. But because he had risen the Thomas was absent rather than stay with the other disciples. He was out on his own while the other disciples wanted to hang together during this time of confusion and uncertainty Thomas probably wanted to be alone and sort of sort things out for himself so he is not there to witness. Jesus first appearance to the disciples as a group. The others tilt Thomas the great news that they have seen. Jesus not only. Was there evidence that Jesus was risen because the tomb was empty? Now they have all actually seen him. And how Thomas Respond to this news. He doesn't believe them even though it isn't just one person but a group of them that tell him. Part of that doubt was his personality. Thomas was naturally a skeptic in a bit of a pessimist but most of his doubt probably came from the hurt in his own heart. We often think of doubt as an intellectual issue but often doubt flows from our disappointment hurts on the day that Jesus died. Thomas had his heart heartbroken. Thomas had put his hopes and dreams and Jesus he believed Jesus to be a good man leading a good calls. But he'd seen Jesus loose. He concluded that Jesus was powerless. Over the evil Robinson the corrupt religious authorities. They had arrested Jesus and taking him away then beat him up to the cross. The most brutal form of execution everyone knew Jesus had lost everyone. What different conclusion was there? The report of the Resurrection Gave Hope Again but Thomas had had his hopes dashed once and he wasn't about to get his hopes up again his refusing to believe Jesus was away to his refusal to believe was a way to protect his heart from hoping again only to have it dashed. He was using his head to protect his heart. It was easier to disbelieve than to believe in the resurrection. Because believing would have been just too painful. You might be in the same place right now. Maybe you've had some hope stashed in these recent weeks and so refused to believe any goodness is coming to you. Your hopes may be dashed by the cancelling of Spring Sports. Europe's May been dashed by the loss of your job or your business. Your heads may been dashed being unable to complete your senior year with your friends. Your hopes may have been dashed as the result of a health scare. And so right now you doubt the goodness or power of tough circumstances like the ones we are facing now often make us doubt. God's goodness our power. We've all heard this argument for it's a classic argument and he goes something like this. If God is all good and all powerful then he wouldn't allow any suffering so since they're suffering than God is either not all good or not all powerful. We apply that argument to our hearts and pains. If God was good he would have stopped this virus. If God was good he will not have let the season be cancelled. If gobbles good then he would have intervened. If God was all powerful he would have done something to keep me from using my business or my job are doubt can lead to disbelief into a lack of hope or confidence in God. Thomas thought that if gobbles all good all powerful then he would not have let Jesus on the Cross. He would not have allowed. Thomas go through the pain of seeing his friend and rabbi executed. So Thomas is afraid to believe because he doesn't want to get his hopes up begin now to Thomas Credit. It does say he will never believe he says he will only believe if he sees the evidence for himself that setting the bar pretty high he needs to see the nail marks of Jesus hands and put his hand in Jesus side so a week goes by since the last time Jesus had appeared to the PA to the apostles a week after Easter Sunday so divine mercy Sunday like today once again. The group is inside huddled and afraid. Eventually the early disciples became bold witnesses seeing the resurrection. But it takes some time in the coming of the Holy Spirit to move them out of their fear once again to this group that is so afraid. Jesus offers his piece. Jesus comes to Thomas and offers the evidence he wanted and asked for in his love and mercy he does hold back from Thomas. Thomas his hands in his side. Jesus invites him to see the winds. The winds are proof that he is risen. They bear witness to his victory over death despite the beating and the Crucifixion Heroes victoriously. The winds bear witnessed his great love for us. Jesus invites Thomas to explore the evidence. He challenges him not to persist in his current state of refusing but to believe in the resurrection to move towards belief in scripture tells Thomas answered and said to him my Lord and my God. This comes from John. Twenty twenty. Eight in meeting the resurrected. Jesus all Thomas Doubt and heartache motorway. He realizes that the crucified and risen. Jesus is Lord and so Thomas personalizes it he says my Lord and my God lots of times when people come into the presence of God their arguments and their reasoning for disbelief can simply melt away. The presence of God a deep personal relationship with Jesus can be just that powerful. This does not mean it is not worth it to study into apply reason. No but those things are a means to in to come to know God personally the important thing is is to bring into a relationship with God and when you have that how you got. There really doesn't matter as much. It is light strong in comparison to the greatness and glory of God. The problem with the argument that if God was all good an all-powerful. Then he wouldn't allow suffering is far too narrow then argument fails to see the whole story. It focuses on one part of life and makes it the whole yes in life. We experienced setbacks. But there's more to the story than though setbacks. We need to see them. In the context of the resurrection Jesus appeared to have lost wound. He went to the Cross. The Romans Jewish authorities thought they had one but they were wrong three days later. Jesus rose from the grave. His suffering and pain were redeemed. Gnarly that it turned out to be his greatest victory over sin and death. So what do we do with all of this? I I want to encourage you to lean into any doubts about God. You may have explored the evidence and seek to overcome doubts. You may have about God. He's big enough. He can take it if you have questions or uncertainties about the resurrection explore them. If you'd like resources to help you check out our website. On the bottom of our home page click on groups. We will be posted in resources there. Also we're excited to be launching small groups all around this issue of doubt for the Easter season. You can sign up also on our website by going to our homepage and clicking on the groups tab second where have you had your hopes dashed during these recent weeks? How have they impacted your faith and trust in God? Name them and be honest about them if they feel particularly deep. Maybe take fifteen minutes this week to journal about them to close. There is a scene from the movie. Apollo thirteen. It was the movie with Tom. Hanks was about a second mission to go to the moon when it becomes apparent that the mission has to be aborted in the lives of the astronauts endanger. Someone calls the whole mission a disaster then add Harris who played the head of Michigan. Troll speaks up and says no sir I believe this will be our finest hour finest hours come in the wake of sufferings and defeats. This is why you can continue to put your faith and hoping God no matter the setbacks no matter the defeats no matter the losses of this of this time your wings and hearts will be redeemed at ret at your resurrection when we believe in Jesus resurrection and we believe that we are connected to him. We're able to see our sufferings and setbacks and the larger reality we're able to see that they will be redeemed out of the ashes. We can rise out of the ashes. We Will Rise Happy Divine Mercy Sunday and happy Easter..

"We think of Easter is very cheery we decorate with Pastel colors. It takes place after the sparse time of lent. We associated with the freshness of spring. Our spirits feel a little lighter. We celebrate because we can enjoy again. Whatever we have given up for lent so Easter Sunday often feels like a long overdue. Celebration a release from darkness. This Easter of course feels very different. We are living a very uncertain time in the shadow of Kovic nineteen. We do not know exactly how we are supposed to act. We are prevented from feeling the excitement and energy that comes from gathering as a crowd. Large groups bring energy and excitement. That can't be replicated and sadly and honestly we are all struggling with doubts and confusion. This Easter feels very different because of the uncertainty because we feel in the dark in that way is very much like the Easter experienced by the first followers of Jesus on that very first Easter Sunday the apostles and other followers of Jesus were not outside the tomb waiting for him to rise from the dead. No when Jesus died on Good Friday. They thought it was the end of their hopes and dreams. They believed that all had been lost for years. They had followed him and been amazed by him. They were amazed by his poise and sense of purpose and mission. They saw him work incredible miracles with their own eyes. They had seen him heal the sick give sight to a blind man. Hearing to the deaf and speech to the mute with their own eyes they had seen him feed over five thousand people with five loaves and two fish they had seen. Jesus do these things with their own eyes so they came to believe. They believed he was someone special. They came to believe that connecting their lives to his would make their life a whole lot better. They believed that if they followed him. All their hopes and dreams would be fulfilled. They came to believe that he had been sent from God as their long awaited Messiah however on Good Friday. Those hopes and dreams were dashed. The crowds turned on Jesus and rather than following him. They cried out crucify him. They mocked him nailed to a cross and placed his limp lifeless body in a tomb. It was game over. So what were the apostles and followers of Jesus to do? They didn't know they weren't sure what to do. Their whole lives had been disrupted. They were filled with fear. Fear for the future. Everyone knew that they had followed. Jesus now that he had been executed as an enemy of the state they felt. They too were endanger. So they hid in darkness and despair darkness despair and disillusionment fear dismay anxiety. They had a great concern about the future. And the loss of hope that was the emotional state of the first followers of Jesus on that first Easter Sunday morning. They were not waiting with hopeful expectation for Jesus to rise from the dead but then something happened. That totally changed their perspective. It shifted their emotion from despair to hope they moved from fear to faith they moved out of disillusionment to new dreams and confidence in the future. They had a total change of view. Not because the external circumstances had changed at all to the outsider. Everything seemed the same but they saw an experienced something that changed everything. We have four separate written accounts dating back. Two thousand years of what the earliest disciples experienced and saw that change their point of view. That doesn't seem like a big deal to us. But paper and ink were not as plentiful two thousand years ago as they are now. Ink and paper were expensive. Writing cost big bucks. We have autobiographies and writings from wealthy people in ancient times because only the wealthy could afford to produce books but Jesus was not wealthy. He didn't even own a home yet. People went to great expense to write about his life. They felt they simply had to spread the news about him. One of the people who felt they had to tell the story. Was The Gospel writer John. He shares his story of what changed for him on that. First Easter morning he writes Mary. Magdalene goes to the Tomb on Easter Sunday morning. She goes to the tomb not because she expects that Jesus has risen from the dead. She goes because Jewish people had a custom of morning at a loved one's tomb for three days after death. Mary Magdalene Love Jesus so much that she felt. It was her responsibility to mourn his death. John tells us that it was still dark. The darkness describes the time of day and the emotional and intellectual state of the disciples their hearts and minds. Were very much in the dark. Mary assumes mistakenly that someone has taken the body and the burial close grave robbery was such a problem in the first century that it was an offence punishable by death when Mary tells the Disciples Peter John. Jump up and begin running to the tomb to see what happened. They have to go see for themselves. What's going on John? Being the younger guy. Naturally in better shape gets there before. Peter Jon looked inside the tomb but didn't go in. Do you know why he didn't go in. Because it was a tomb for one thing who wants to go into a tomb but there's more to it than that. What he sees is not what he expected to see. He expected to see a completely empty tomb. He assumed there was nothing in there. If grave robbers had taken the body the burial clothes would not have been there. The burial clothes were valuable. It would be like someone's stealing your wallet but leaving behind the cash and the credit cards. No Robert would do that so it was clear that the body had not been stolen and no person would take the barry close off the body and then leave the clothes there. If someone had taken the body they would have taken the close as well. He couldn't make sense of what he was seeing. John is a reflective person so we just stops and examines the situation. Peter is the more impetuous person so he runs into the tomb. He doesn't stop it. I to examine the situation. He sees that the burial close are there but the cloth that had covered his head is roll up in a separate place as if someone had taken the time to fold it up. So it's more evidence that the Barrio close are there. But there's no body then. The Bible tells us John Entered the tomb and he saw and believed John saw and believed what he saw deeper into the evidence and believed Jesus had risen from the dead. He believed the tomb was empty. Not because the body had been stolen but because Jesus had risen from the dead many times. Jesus had predicted his death and resurrection. When you read through the Gospels Jesus constantly tells his followers what is coming in the announcement just goes right over their heads. They don't get it. John had heard. Jesus say it several times and he never paid all that much attention to it but now seeing the evidence before him he comes to believe that Jesus rose from the dead in that moment of belief everything changed for John. Faith and hope go together. Faith is belief that God exists. Faith is trust in God's character that what he says is true. The Christian faith is not based on the Bible Christian. Faith is based on a person. Jesus Christ in the event of his resurrection from the dead. The early Christians came to believe that Jesus rose from the dead. They came to believe in his resurrection. Not Out of some kind of wishful thinking but because of what they saw and experienced out of their experience they came to believe in something they had never thought possible and they believed in Jesus's resurrection as they did. They were filled with hope for the future. Hope is a confident expectation. That goodness is coming. It's the desire to experience. God's promises hope corresponds to our natural desire for happiness. Hope is a confidence that we will ultimately find our happiness and fulfilment in God hope is faith directed towards the future. Faith believes guide exists and has the power to bring goodness into our lives. Hope confidence that he will bring that blessing into our lives. Especially in times of darkness. Hope keeps us from discouragment and sustains US IN TIMES OF DARKNESS. Faith is the foundation of hope. Faith is a gift faith in Jesus. Resurrection is first and foremost a gift. That comes from the God of grace. With God's intervention and revelation. Faith in him is possible. You cannot make yourself have faith you cannot give yourself faith you have to receive it. It has been revealed to you by God. We cannot see this on our own to help us grow in faith. God sets up scenarios that are suited to our personalities interests and experiences when you read through the Resurrection Accounts in John's Gospel. You discover that no two people come to faith in exactly the same way. Each person is approached by Jesus differently. Each is given different types of evidence to come to faith in the resurrection. Some people only need a little bit of evidence as is the case with John. Others are much more skeptical in demand to see greater evidence such as touching. Jesus' wounds like the Apostle Thomas did God wants to give each of us the gift of faith but we all have different trajectories and paths. We all need something different to receive faith in Jesus resurrection. This is why it's wrong for Christians to ever judge other people who do not have faith in God. We have received that faith as a gift. We didn't earn it. We received it when you receive a gift. You don't judge other people who did not receive it instead. You are grateful for it and while faith is a gift that does not mean we are completely passive. We have to explore the evidence we have to have a willingness to receive the gifts. God gives us to bring us to faith in Jesus and his resurrection. We explore the things in our lives. That don't make sense like Mary. Initially Peter and John did not believe Jesus had risen from the dead. They thought his body had been stolen. They went to the tomb to see for themselves. What had happened to examine the evidence? Faith comes from a willingness to study the evidence while faith goes beyond rational capacities. It does not contradict it faces. Not Irrational faith means believing what we can't see based on the evidence we can see. You cannot get all the way to real faith through reasoning alone yet. Faith is not less than rational. Either you can't get to real faith without reason and thinking why because when your faith is an act of the whole person. The early disciples were just as incredulous of Jesus's resurrection as modern people would be. They required the same kind of multiple sightings a hands on I witness experiences that we would require in order to convince them that God was really alive and in this respect the narratives fit perfectly with what we know historically of those cultures while these ancient culture did not hold as many modern people do that. Miracles are impossible. Resurrection was equally implausible and unimaginable. To them. As it is for most people today they needed evidence and a willingness to explore the evidence to come to faith in Jesus and his resurrection as they explored the evidence. They came to believe they came to believe so much in the resurrection that they were willing to die for that belief. They didn't believe in find evidence for their belief. They experienced evidence of the resurrection and were willing to come to the conclusion that Jesus had risen over the next four weeks. We're going to take a look at the evidence and experiences of the early Christians and the hope which that brought into their lives faith and hope are two things we desperately need right now.

"We have just heard the story of the last hours of Jesus the best friend we ever had. As we listened to the reading of the passion. We followed him step by step in our hearts through his last hours and now having heard Jesus speak those last dread two words father into your hands I commend my spirit and when he had said this he breathed his last. We have to make sense. We have to make sense of it. All what does it mean this. Good kind loving young man the kindest man we ever met barely in his thirties. Dying dying in so gasoline away for no crime at all. He was completely innocent. What does it mean and what is it for what it means is God loves us. It means God loves a so much that he will withhold absolutely nothing from US absolutely nothing. Not even his own beloved son. What it means is that no matter what no matter what God will always be there for us with all his love all his power all his comfort and His grace. What was it four to tell us that. There are no limits no limits to his commitment to US. None at all. That's what God our father is saying to us through this terrible moment in Jesus's life our father is saying you can count on me. I will never desert you and there's nothing I won't give you not even my own son. I will save you. This passion Sunday is in one way or another a very sad today. Walking with Jesus on this day can break your heart but and this is a big. But it's also the brightest of days the brightest of days. Because it tells you how very much you are loved and because it reminds us who view this day from the vantage point of the resurrection that despite all appearances all will be well. Thank God Almighty all will be well. Are we worried? Are you worried in the midst of this Corona Cova? Nineteen sure you are. So what do we mean all will be? Well how can we have the audacity? Maybe the stupidity to say all will be well all will be well does not mean we will not sometimes get sick and suffer in life all will be. Well does not mean. We WON'T HAVE DIFFICULTY IN LIFE. All will be well does not mean. We won't catch the corona virus. So what do we mean all will be well and is that some sort of naive stupid pious platitude to say when people are sick all around us all will be? Well what do you think about that? What do we mean all will be? Well all will be well means. There is always hope. There is always hope. Hope is the trust that somehow somehow one way or another even when things don't seem to be working out and are very difficult. Our Future is in God's hands our future is in God's hands just like Jesus on the cross trusted trusted in God the father and just like Jesus had great. Hope had great hope that even when things did not seem to be working out and we're very difficult for him his future was in. God's the father's hands our future our future is in God's hands and so all will be well if we are faithful to him. If we stay close to him he will be there for us in the end and so we have great hope therefore from our vantage point which is the vantage point of the resurrection. Despite all appearances even in the midst of struggled difficulty corona virus sickness indepth will be. Well does it sound silly to say in the midst of struggle for us to say all will be well and let us rejoice no let us rejoice let us rejoice because thanks be to our good God who loves us who loves us all will be well..

It's so easy to make that contribution but it's incredible see how huge the positive impact yeah you know again Dan that's a matter of will she had the will to want to have a positive impact in one to make a change in how wonderful and I'm sure that it has a very positive <hes> trickle effect and inspired other people and I really am such it's a shame when when she died obviously shame also and she stopped doing the shop because I think that that passion kind of went with how exactly anyway okay so now I have a question for you own real diamonds versus manufactured diamonds up you really interested to know as Dan and so the same thing then applies in as we're talking about fair trade gold it also applies to the gym industry so as I mentioned all our stones are <hes> responsibly sourced and then one other new category besides being sourced from the earth is of course the lab-grown diamonds and yes it is a fact that lap grown diamonds do use less energy to be grown and certainly people in planet it or not negatively impacted that is just a fact and this is the fact that we're embracing and we're actually stepping into credit diamonds as the next chapter of russkies initiatives within within the world of sustainability but having said all of that we are also and we have <hes> expressed ourselves to the diamond industry that we are very excited to also use diamonds as long as they're sustainably sourced so we are in conversation with the G._I.. which was the Geologic Institute of America to look for those minds and they certainly exist <hes> in Botswana? You know where there are very regulated processes. <hes> diamonds are traceable. <hes> the G._I.. has created an APP. When you buy a diamond jewelry store you can get this APP and you can actually trace your diamond their photographs of the diamond coming out of the mind and chose entire process of what happens to that diamond until it ends up in your ring and that is fantastic and you know it's Russkies these efforts within the credit diamond world has the impact of encouraging minors <hes> or the mining industry to mind sustainably and that's fantastic and we will be their customer you know home and how when when you say about manufacture diamonds how how does manufacturer so they're actually three different processes to are the most popular that's vapor deposition? <hes> in the other one is high heat high pressure her which is the one that's high energy which is really exactly that's totally replicating the natural process by heat high pressure <hes> and then I think de Beers with their plant are really also growing the colored diamonds which I think is really really exciting <hes> right now predominantly it's more clear or slightly brown or yellow that we're seeing coming out of China and India <hes> but I have to say totally appreciate the technology. That's behind it. You know try right. If you're GONNA grow diamond that's hard try to figure out how to make a crystal that is hard. I mean we have these melting pots. That are the size of this building right and we chuck in Certain Chemicals from Potter Sodium Courts and so on quartz sand. That's that's all melted and outcomes would looks like honey but that's crystal and then it goes into the different malls and then we cut it you know that such a tedious intricate process I appreciate the crystal because of its manufacturing and I can only say the same thing about created diamonds. You know I really appreciate the technology in the human intelligence. That's behind it. You know do you think though that that the real diamond industry said when I say real isn't even the right phrase but the mind diamonds <hes>. Do you think that the jury industry is going to be trying to tell us that they have more value because they're older. Maybe in there certainly something about that you know but I also think in particularly young generation or the younger generation they will all have seen those documentaries they will have seen the blood diamond movie you know and I have to say <hes> my mother probably would not by crater diamond but my daughter's only and it's really a matter of the values and the values that are associated associated with the younger generation you know they don't care for its old. They don't they don't care or they don't care if it's old but they care it was extracted and bad conditions and I have to say it was interesting. I was just at the Las Vegas Jewelry Fair last week and had to give her presentation at G._I.. <hes> about this topic and there are a lot of people from Africa that had minds and there were saying well. What about all these artisanal minds you know then the livelihood of so many people are dependent on listen? I said yes absolutely right and you know if we can assign a process of cleaning that up and making sure people totally taking care of intrigue at the Right Way and you know the technologies out there to extract these wonderful <hes> stones from the Earth if we can just apply the more environmentally safe practices. It's everyone wins the you know and certainly I have to say by embracing the created diamond industry does not mean that one dismisses certainly the artistic element you know that's wonderful but <hes> and I just felt in general last week from Las Vegas at the whole injured industries ready to embrace a better process you know and because people are at stake and people's voices are being heard and the photography is documenting. Everything and everyone wants the best so I think it'll it will take up few years but I think I totally believe in the sustainability of extracting these wonderful mill minerals from the earth so you you're celebrating one hundred twenty five years and what can we expect to see is part of your celebration my Gosh and selling we're realizing what one hundred twenty five years out about happen you know in a certain sense. I have to say you have the source retail stores but every time I have asked speak somewhere of course I speak about Swarovski's history and I'm usually mobbed after I speak by people saying I had no idea about what's Russky. Did we didn't know that it was crystals on Dorothy slippers and the wizard of Oz or Audrey Hepburn Tiara at breakfast at tiffany's or unmanned Marilyn Monroe's dress when she sang happy with Mr President different so I think in terms of sauce history we have so much communication to do. We have to communicate about that heritage slow. I think that's what will focus on <hes> next year and you know I think what we really wouldn't position as the fact that we're master cutters we cut crystal. We cut gemstones. We can cut real diamonds. We can cut <hes> created diamonds so really emphasizing Swarovski's craftsmanship its heritage. It's strong long value for quality and then of course what we really want to celebrate are those various different collaborations. We're talking about from the past to the present and <hes> again you know our product truly is so multifaceted. No Pun intended ended so our customers also you know and that is why those different collaborations are so important to continue to show how the crystal can be implemented so many different ways you know in so many different areas with its clothing or fashion jewelry <music> architecture also up cycling. I yes exactly tell me about that. So we're working with <hes> young fashion designers wells working with various different universities like several Saint Martin's the world Cultivar Parsons F._I._T.. And we're certainly <hes> working with the students on the sustainable use of crystal and that means reusing crystal up cycling crystals and we're working with <hes> young designers to do that as well such as Kevin. And get Monier Kevin Yemen yeah has been amazing at <hes> reusing the crystal and still as we mentioned earlier showing an incredibly luxuries product so I think that is really a new unexciting chapter <hes> <hes> it's interesting you know because it's Russky as I mentioned we had such a we have such a strong quality consideration which means the quality control is very strict so not won crystal leaves the factory with a bubble in it or scratch on it and my question is are we to strict with our quality control so if you upcycle crystal it might have that scratch on it and might have that bubble in which you of course can see until you take a loop and look at it so you know for the sake of the planet environment. Oh come on lead me to loosen up a bit but it's simple and penelope Cruz telling me that well we dressed her at the film festival in Venice three or two and a half years ago and <hes> we gave her first our first collection collection of credit diamonds along with our sustainability report and apparently she took really three hours to read that report and we got a call the next day from her agent asking if she could work with us wow and that was such an honor for us you know <hes> to be asked by her..
"sunday" Discussed on The Sunday Scaries Podcast
"My name's wilder freeze, and this is the Sunday scariest podcast, your care for the Sunday blues. Before we get started today, I wanted to extend a massive. Thank you to anyone who has subscribed reviewed or simply listen to this podcast. We eight episodes in and I could not be happier with support ever sees as far. You've made my Sunday's a little scary, and I hope you can say the same for me. And this week's episode we're gonna talk about bad diets, Sunday, happy hours in what music you should be listening to on Sunday nights. I categorize the reasons for my somewhat regular anxiety in different categories sleep, which we talked about in the last episode money, which will definitely talk about in the future relationships and health. But whatever reason, health always seems to take the back seat when confronting the rest of everything that life throws your way. Maybe you don't work out enough. I sure don't maybe you health issues that not only drain you physically and mentally the financially to, or if you're like me, maybe you over think what you're putting in your body on a regular basis. I'm not a health freak by any means if you know me or have you ever seen a picture of me, you know that it's not even close. Very healthy meal that I eat. I probably counteract it with something I shouldn't be eating drinking in an effort to track this and lose a little weight in the process. I decided to do a whole thirty. Yes, that fad diet. You've seen all over the internet that may or may not work depending on which link click. Essentially a thirty day diet where you eliminate everything bad. And I say, batting quotes it includes sugar grains, beans, soit, dairy, and yes. Alcohol from your diet. That's the tough one. When you really look into what you can't eat on this, your mind immediately defaults to well, what the hell can I eat? And honestly, that's valid because it really feels like you can't eat all that much at first. Anytime you put restrictions on yourself, whether it be a diet of budget or pretty much anything else that stops you from having fun. Your brain immediately defaults to thinking about all the things you want to do and not the things that you're allowed to do. But really, that's why you do it to test yourself in an effort to better yourself. Sure. You want to go to five star restaurants for group dinners every weekend, but that's not really fiscally sustainable whole thirty kind of does that same thing. But with the food that you make for yourself. I'm not gonna act like this diet or any other diet for that matter are right for every single person out there simply put. They're just not. But what I like about hol thirty more than the weight loss is that teaches you not only eat healthier, but to see which foods your body has sensitivities to. I love a cold talion sandwich, but after thirty days of eating and reintroducing bread into my diet, it became very evident that bread is something that my body doesn't digest as well as Darier soy. While going to thirty days of clean eating, all I could think about was how badly I wanted a cold ham sandwich, and a draft beer, an old speckled hen to be exact. But once the thirty days past the changes I felt were much more satisfying than the feeling I got after eating an entire Domino's pizza after late night, vodka, sodas. Obviously, I still live for nights like that for what I realize was that feeling good for extended periods of time felt better than the quick fix. I got from tacos or beer. Anytime you put strict limitations on yourself, you crave being bad. The mental toughness of doing something for an extended period of time isn't just draining, but in the end it actually becomes fulfilling again. Yes. I know this is going to be classified as a fad, and I know people would love to dispute the benefits of this diet more than like to entertain them. That's just how these things work. But what I want people to realize is that you don't just do these things these fads to lose weight or mmediately get a six pack. You do them to test yourself, be the mind or the body. You don't have to do a whole thirty either you could bike after work, run ten miles a week, stop drinking beer and switch exclusively vodka. Something that a lot of people do trim their way signed on a little bit, whatever. Taking yourself out of your. Zone shouldn't be something frowned upon. And when it's all said and done you at least get the endorphins of accomplishment and maybe six pack to, you know, of the old speckled variety. It's become somewhat of a Sunday ritual to me. At this point. Most of the time I'd never suggest leaving your apartment after five o'clock on a Sunday, going to friends house for large pasta dinner to wind down watching some TV, maybe going for a run. I mean, probably not get off your high horse, grab some groceries for the week. Well, hopefully zoo. But as of late, my mentality is somewhat changed ever since my favorite restaurant began offering a happy hour on Sundays from four to six, half off pretty much everything. On the surface. It seems psychotic to do such a thing spending more money after a weekend of blowing through bar tabs isn't always at the top of my list on Sunday night. Being out in public when my brain can barely function feels like climbing Mount Everest. And if I'm hung over a happy hour is probably the last thing I need, but at least hear me out. I once read a British study that said, the average suffer Sunday scares feels it normally around four pm how they came to that conclusion. I've no idea, but it somehow makes sense. During the week, four clock is a time when you start to think to yourself. All right. All right. About time to cut out a work. It's that little light at the end of the tunnel, the night before Christmas, but on Sundays that four clock feeling is actually a signifier that Yup, the weekends officially ending. One more meal left one more opportunity to watch a movie you had on your net flicks list. One last chance to get your laundry done in a last ditch effort to feel at least somewhat productive. I usually try to eat dinner around seven o'clock, but ever since I discovered the beauty of Sunday, happy hour, I've moved my final meal of Sunday back a couple of hours to around five a bit early. Yes, but after a slight fast after large breakfast, I'm normally ready to gorge myself on comfort food come five o'clock. Sure. It helps at the meals cheaper due to the deal. But the benefits of this don't exactly end when the check comes. Once six o'clock hits in the rose as no longer half off, it's time to close up shop and go home before. I know it the clock is barely struck seven, and I'm home safe and my most comfortable clothes ready to attack the night and by attack, I mean, sit lethargically in bed trying to read or watch planet earth, but that's neither here nor there. I'm not sure why, but getting out of the house just gives me the hint of productivity that don't normally get from ordering from post mates or eating leftovers. Whether my girlfriend and I invite a friend or another couple is just the perfect opportunity to get out, feel social and wrap up our weekend with some laughter before Monday starts to creep into our brains. At the end of the day, it's at least better than waiting in line at checkout at whole foods to pay fourteen dollars at the hot bar for food is too lazy to cook myself. The Indian style chicken curry, really isn't that good anyway. And if you get hungry around nine, just have a scoop of ice cream, you've earned it. This
