Conservatives Won the Roe Narrative War Thanks to Drew Hernandez
"Won the narrative war that we were supposed to lose on Friday Saturday Sunday Monday is because your footage. And by the way, this is not just speculation drew. So we were told by everybody the following. Rove versus wade comes down and it's going to hurt our midterm chances. You heard something similar to that, right? Well, a generic congressional ballot before versus after roe versus wade, where on June 21st, Republicans were leading four on the generic ballot, and now we're leading by 5 on the generic ballot. Wow. You know, I think part of that could be the response as well. The violent response to this. I mean, you see this kind of footage. You see the way that these people respond to this type of thing. And I think a lot of pro life organizations that have been putting out a lot of education and media and social media informing the public just exactly what this is and what it looks like.

If Roe Is Reversed, Churches May Be Targeted for Violence
"Actually talking to a couple of pastors the other day just in passing. And I said, so are you guys concerned? And they are. I mean, there are pastors that are very concerned that if the ruling comes down and roe V wade is overturned, that their churches could be targeted. And so but they've got security, you know, things in place and you already need to have that anyway. Yeah. Most larger churches do anyway. That's true. So they can take you down and if you're going to try to do something, they will dispatch to Jesus. And then he can take care of it from there. So anyway, I think there is a, I don't think they're scared. I think it's just a general concern because, I mean, we have seen, I mean, we've seen what happened, what's been happening with the firebombing of the pro life centers, the churches that have been vandalized. I think we could see churches firebombed. I think we could do. I think anything is possible. Absolutely. I mean, keep in mind, these are people that want to kill unborn babies. Yes. And they want to sell off their body parts. This is what Planned Parenthood does. So we're dealing with people who do not value life in the first place. And going back to the churches, that's another reason I don't want it done close to the weekend because I think church is so fit to release tomorrow. I think churches on Sunday morning would be a really big target.

Given how inflation is escalated over the past 18 months, would you say that the war in Ukraine is the primary driver of inflation in America? No, inflation was high before certainly before the war in Ukraine broke up. I'm glad to hear you say that the Biden administration seems to be intent on deflecting blame. And as recently as just this past Sunday, spread the misinformation that Putin's invasion of Ukraine is the biggest single driver of inflation. I'm glad you agree with me that that is not the truth.

I tote bag. Let's stick with me and the laptops in their four steps the word some semblance of a scarf. Because i'm sleeping all the time as well on planes and gets cold and then Lots of protein bars i get. I get bored when i travel. So i somehow find the earth's to get hungry. I know him not so keeps them keeps them healthy snacks in a bag and headphones usually pair of shoes an extra pair of shoes. That's probably a good a good mix of things. You don't have to go into hudson news and pay like thirteen dollars for one of the protein bars that they have in their no. It's always the case to something. I've enjoyed about About you lately and just all the time is that you enjoy dressing up a little bit and have retail therapy is definitely one of the running themes of this show when it comes to a cure in some of the anxiety that sunday bring. How did you get into fashion. What's your personal style. All about You know horse kinda love is fashion icons and you know. Look at lenny kravitz. And i just melt and i'm thinking how can how can one human being be so perfect and incredible style Lived in europe for thirteen years and so their style is so incredibly different than than americans and so You know once onsite once. I figured out what worked for me in terms of Stylistically sizing than i really got into. What are some brands that you've been looking at lately. I know it's a spring season. I'm having the worst time trying to find some shirts to wear out these days. What what have you been shopping lately. I heard you talk about you know i. I've categories right. So i was kind of casual as one or like hustle down the street. I'm usually in like rude or tiff. My kind of my go-to emily on door. Which is just knock it out of the box and so That's more casual every day. And then i'd be remiss if i didn't say why isn't cimarron. That's like my as old smith. That's that's every good piece. I have is why. It's so. I'm not saying that you have any mrs because i haven't seen any yet but is there anything that you've gotten over the last few years where you've put it on and ben like oh man that that might not have been the best outfit knocking. Mrs keep it simple now. We'll have missed. I remember about kobe. Denver denver's amazing place. It has my heart brilliant. But there's no justice up in denver. And i bought this jacket from wise. Ysl and it had all types of dancing. I can only wear it out and bought it. And i got to denver a little looked at my closet but there's not a place in the city of denver. That could possibly wear this too. So it's still closet and wear new york since i that's like that's my entire issue is that i always want to bring everything. I own whenever. I go to a new city and if that city does not have like the vibe of what i brought i'm like i have to have backup plans and so i always end up bringing something that's like super dress down for places like austin or denver and things like that and then i have to bring really nice stuff. It's just a double edged sword. Look for me. I i also follow the rule of johnny cash. Right like t shirt black jeans black boots and kind of like that can be seen as dressed. In upper justice down there was sort over the top of it and usually de catalyst a few years ago. I actually went to new york for work. And i actually went to the. I'm alien door store and thought to myself. You know every single person in new york right now is wearing a black t-shirt and it's time that i get my first black t. Shirt and a long time in ever since. It's pretty much my go-to outfit every single day. It's comfortable. It's sleek it's casual. It's pretty easy. You kind of touched on this a few minutes ago and you talked about The style influence when it came to living near it for so long and traveling around there I know that there are slight customs over there verses over here and i've only spent a very limited amount of time over there so i pretty much get all my england intel from just watching watching the shows that you're hosting Is there anything you miss about being over there a lot you know. I think. I think when when i play i was. They're thirteen years. And you're immersed in this incredible business and sport and lifestyle and culture but it's it's taxing it mentally physically taxing them so i don't think you get to really enjoy love london. I lived in manchester. I i come away from having been the london all the time and thank god. What an amazing city. But i was so immersing work for thirteen years at did i enjoy london. Of course i'd be lying if i didn't but i just made a lot of good friends over there. I missed the culture you know. The european cultures is so very different than here in america. And i. i'm. I'm a full blooded proud american but like love.

"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..

"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.

"This is the fourth week of our message series broken good news tough times. The last few weeks we have spoken about suffering. Hope and the fact that God created us in his image, he chooses us and gives our lives purpose. Today, we're going to look at God's power. Let's cut right to the chase. God's Power Is God's love because God is love. The all-conquering power of God's Love has overcome obstacles to your salvation and everything that threatens to separate you from God. Today's readings emphasize God's power because they emphasized God's Love God's goodness and God's generosity. For example through the Prophet Isaiah. The Lord invites the hungry and thirsty to come to him. He will give food and drink to them. That's right. He will give not sell grain, wine and milk. Come without paying and without cost. That prophecy received unexpected fulfilment at the feeding of the five thousand that we heard about in the Gospel. The Gospel writers found this so remarkable that it's the only miracle of Jesus to be recorded in all four gospels apart from the resurrection itself. The story shows God's power through his love mercy and compassion. Jesus taught the crowd and healed the sick and fed them because his heart was moved. Not, only was their need for food met, but the divine abundance was demonstrated. Twelve basket full of leftovers were collected and Jesus gave them their meal without paying and without cost. Undoubtedly the Gospel writers were also aware of the direct connection between this meal and what takes place during mass. The feeding of the five thousand has a direct connection to the meal that takes place during every mass. Jesus, not only fed the crowd on that one occasion he continues to feed us as well and he does so with the best imaginable food and drink. That is his own body and blood which we received during mass. Such bank with is a gift that would be inconceivable without Jesus's own teaching about it. Jesus tells us he's going to feed us in this way and he does it. God's love and generosity are not limited however to food and drink his body and blood no matter how wonderful his power his love does not stop there. Saint Paul tells us today the God. EXTENDS HIS POWER TO US and offers US tremendous protection. The protection extended to US Paul writes means that nothing no angelic or demonic being no force or power not even death itself can force a separation between us and God's love for us expressed through his son Jesus. And early death an unjust face an incomplete life. Gross and tragic unfairness to those left behind. Truly all of these things do not negate the love of God and the ultimate expression of God's love, which is eternal life with him through the gift of his son. Thanks be to God for that. Consider the power you assigned to powerless things like worry. Other people circumstances. Let it go and recognize that only God who loves you has power over your. Life. Know nothing can separate us from God accept ourselves that is. God's love means that he will respect our free will no matter how badly we misuse it? He gives us all we have including life itself. But we are stewards who are.

"A retreat. Usually the most powerful tyrants to receive the sacraments because you're away from the world. Actions. Jesus. You get that kind of meaningful time You know in I grew up in the methodist church in and then went into the episcopal church, of course, and so in the methodist, church, communion is not is a big deal. Now it's it's not that it's not a big deal. It's a big deal, but communion in the Methodist Church most methodist churches it used to be this I'm not sure how it is now, but it was once a month, usually the first Sunday of the month. and it was. It was a pretty big deal even as a kid. But I remember receiving communion when Elsie unlike three four five America I I. Don't remember, but I remember being a kid in receiving it when I was young and and it just being. Even then. It was a special moment. Then it was a special moment and so you know. In A. Self important or their communion is important to to so many people and not just Catholics, but the but what we have in the Eucharist is is what really makes the difference that the that we believe the words of Jesus in scripture. That this is his body, blood soul in divinity, and that was the thing that really. Was the toughest thing for me to get over was how I learned to. How how? How is Jesus present and I went through so many different versions of how he could be there how he was president and. It made for That was part of the journey that probably took me. The longest was because not because I was fighting not to be Catholic at that point because I didn't mind. If Jesus was truly present, their matter of fact wanted to be a just. As part of that wondering in figuring out what I believed in Wia believed. While believed when I did so that. Said I just think that. For Lots of people that can be. It can be tough issue even in the church. Because, we have so many people that doesn't necessarily understand. That the president is really there and so just trying to get a handle on that and. Specifically. How it works out on our lives, what was I mean? Once had understanding that Jesus is present there. You know how it works out in our life, and said the effect of it, and so have you ever. Have you ever had like a? I don't mean to light maybe as a spiritual experience. Chris itself. I mean I don't know I, mean. I mean it's hard to descried. Just like. When when Jesus. Everytime Negroes. Perfect. Because, is such A. It's such a beautiful gift, but whenever you're in that before degrees, you know and. You receive the. See Jesus is. It can be very powerful, very. Emotional. Can Be emotional because. We're being. I? Think the most the most emotional. Time our received Eucharist in the Catholic Church, was It was the Sunday after my dad passed. Yeah that was. My mother-in-law passing were. Very, traumatic moments for me. Probably didn't show it thankfully, but but it was, and so I remember going into receive and thinking because my my dad when he was a methodist I mean. He convert and so I can remember going up in receiving Eucharist and thinking finally. At the table together. We're finally here together. Because we believe that what happens, you know inconvenient. We lift up your. We lift them up to the Lord. Will believes happening at that moment is is that we're entering heaven, and we're going to the to the feast of the lamb. Joining the choirs of angels were joining all those who've gone before us, and we're actually there in the throne room with Jesus and it's not just an image that we think were there. We try to imagine what it would be like if we were we are there.

"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.

"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.

"Three or two and a half years ago and We gave her first our first 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 and that was such an honor for us. You know To be asked by her. I never would have thought about it because she's almost in a different stratosphere you but it was such an honor and we're coming together with shared values. Yeah you know. And that's what's so special and so we've really allowed her to create her collection. So you've worked with how to create a collection. Yes it's her designed that's right. It's her designs and it. She really has herself in mind when she designs the collection. Or when you design the red carpet collection and You know the red carpet usually is very conservative so her collection is very conservative And then she felt very strongly that her fans should be able to afford her a product so we delineated the collection meaning. It's a little bit smaller. And more affordable which is also sold at harvey nichols but then we also created a crystal collection and that crystal collection was inspired by her daughter called luna so this collections called moon sun. But that collection is really. It's not a copy at all of the red carpet jewelry collection. It has a different design. Ethos so it's not a cannibalisation. The crystal is not cannibalizing the crater diamond at all and again it's even more affordable and It's a lot smaller very delegates. And i have to say it's been so successful. So far in the stores people love to have an association with penelope the are so inspired by her I think she's really that are hollywood..

"You know and i have to say My mother probably would not buy credit diamond but my daughter's only and it's really a matter of the values and the values that are associated with the younger generation. You know they don't care if it's 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 i had to give a presentation at gi About this topic and there are a lot of people From africa that had minds. And we're saying well. What about all these artisanal minds you know. Then the livelihood of so many people are dependent on this. And i said yes absolutely right and you know if we can assign a process of cleaning that up and making sure people are totally taking care of and treat it the right way. And you know the technology's out there to extract these wonderful Stones from the earth if we can just apply the more environmentally saying practices. It's everyone wins. The you know. And certainly i say by embracing the credit diamond industry does not mean. That one dismisses certainly the artistic element you know. That's wonderful but 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 meal minerals from the earth so you you're celebrating one hundred twenty five years and what can we expect to see as part of your celebration. My gosh and selling we're realizing what one hundred twenty five years that happen. You know in a certain sense. I have to say you have this russky retail stores. But every time..

"We have been certified by the responsible jewellery council which does a very thorough audit. I used to work at the body shop l. What a great experience. I was a great experience. And anita roddick was working with some pharma's in nicaragua and she was guessing sesame seed from them to make sesame scrub but she had taught the farmers how to former gallantly not herself. She doesn't know how to form me but she also while she was in the caracas she met some some kids who were on a dump who used to municipal dump and they would go and collect bottles on that as you didn't know what to do about it. So she set up a schooler for the children and we went to visit the school and it was the most amazing experience of my life because she was so they were so proud of her and she was so revered and these kids were guessing appropriate education. They have proper school uniforms and it was like the queen had arrived when we went to visit. It was the most incredible experience and shows how businesses can go above and beyond behaving responsibly. They can actually change. Lives and i thought that was a really good example of. That's one full story and it just gives me chills you know and so often for us. It's so easy to make that contribution but it's incredible. See how huge the positive impact is. Yeah you know again. That's a matter of will. She had the will to want to have a positive impact and want to make a change. In how wonderful. And i'm sure that it has a very positive Trickle effect and inspired other people. To say and i really such a shame when when she died obviously but mashame also and she stopped doing the shop. Because i think that that passion kind of went with exactly anyway. Okay so now. I have a question for you. On real diamonds versus manufactured islands. I'd be 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 gem industry. So as i mentioned all our stones are 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 lab grown diamonds do use less energy to be grown and certainly people planet are 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 th- russkies initiatives within the world of sustainability. But having said all of that we are also and we have. expressed themselves 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 a gi. Which was the gem logic institute of america to look for those minds and they certainly exist in botswana you know where there are very regulated processes diamonds are traceable The gi has created an app. When you buy a diamond in the jewelry store. You can get this app and you.

"More and more i think the younger consumer it's so much more educated than the previous consumer. You know they will all have seen thirty documentaries about what's happening with environment. We're feeling the effects of environment. Whatever you wanna call it you know. It's a global warming. Climate change is that disruptive weather we need to act and yes i think the younger customer and consumer is aware and they care. Do you think it's difficult for businesses to become more responsible. No not at all. The only thing it takes is Will will to make that improvement and of course a financial and a time investment. And it's i personally think it's a must companies must take that time and must Take the finances aside to relieve invest. Because it's going to come back anyway and then there's this thing called a double bottom line or the triple bottom line which really focuses on the people planet and that ultimately the profit calms you know and i- crudely sad i have to say companies haven't made that investment because it hasn't been a requirement so really i have to say it's almost greed towards the bottom line that has prohibited from this greater consideration to happen. But you know. I have to say it just like you know. I don't believe in the Work life separation. You know our our work should be our lives. And i would certainly hope that once private values are also the same values that we implement at work you know has all come together so i just think at the end of the day this entire movement really calls for an increase in or an improvement in values you know and this is definitely an era of greater transparency Front and back and it should be the same you know and i think at the end. It's get news relaxing easy planet. It's good news for the consumer. It's just you know corporations need to shape up and refocus and reprioritize on that. This seems to be a difference between sustainability and conscious luxury. What would you say that different says. i really don't think that there is a difference We have you know if anything. The difference was perhaps sustainability or green had this association with being grungy or you know non design driven but actually no and there's so many different brands that have proven that you can still be glamorous and beautiful and luxurious while at the same time also being sustainable and have you got any favorite brands that he would. Of course you know. And that's why actually came up with this that phrase conscious luxury because we realized. Wow there's actually a connotation here and let's just remind people you know there should not be a compromise. Ever in the aesthetics or the qualitative positioning of a product if it is environmentally sound and so in case of you know we have worked with Fairtrade gold so we're working with the tiny little gold in peru and actually The miners are predominantly apopka farmers. That just happened. Find gold on their last hearsay. So they're mining it and all the prophets that they get from the mining goes into their farming and the entire community the benefits from it. You know and it was so sweet. We had a little video conference with them and they all dressed up nicely near sued for the video conference then. That wasn't feed. You know andy's but it was so nice. It was so nice that they knew that they're somehow contributing to some luxury good product and here. They are so far away and try to dress up what we appreciate it so much. But we're so and ross. We just have to attitude my gosh. We have to source materials anyways so we might as well to source from a sound location and the same thing is also applying to our gemstones. So all the gemstones our minds sustainably..
