"Of the really transformative experiences as i went to a gay christian conference in pittsburgh. This is the first time where i as a street hitman was completing minority. Yeah okay and just just had that experience. I would stop in the midst of just walking to here and there you know in the midst of the worship service and i'm looking everyone on stage is gay. Yeah leading worship all the speakers gay trans and there's definitely that part of their identity that is with them in whatever they're contributing and i'm starting to understand how my straightness bleeds into everything that i do And yet when queer and trans people are you know in in straight predominant sort of things like they experience part of them being left out. Okay and is wow. That was really really helpful. The people that were there from the church as the pastor. I could tell we didn't have to have a full out conversation but it also made a difference to them. That i was there of course is like hey my pastor right is like he's seeing me with my hair down like he's seeing me in fact they actually had a meeting in my hotel room the age. I walk into my bedroom. There's a whole bunch of guys. I was like wow. We're sitting on the pastors bed. You know and i'm like it's it's a sofa but you know that's really important especially for the people with privilege because whatever group you belong to that may not have privilege. It's important for you to know that you are supported by those who do have the privileges that you don't so that's really important. That's that's important for me as as a non white person. It's important for me. As a gay man. I feel so encouraged. When i see other straight people in the state department really supporting lgbt issues or attending lgbt events. I feel very happy. When i see white people really supporting black lives matter. I feel really encouraged. When i see members of the clergy specially roman catholic members of the clergy taking more pastoral view towards lgbt people. You know this kind of interesting. Because as i had said earlier many roman catholic clergy are gay yet. They do have the privilege of not having to deal with that being at least on a public level. Yeah because publicly. They're just celebrate so as far as anyone knows as far as anyone knows exactly so even the roman catholic priests can hide behind the closet of celibacy So it really is important for clergy whether you are gay or straight to show your support. I think we're in agreement that the organized religions around christianity in this country are pretty sold out two empire Okay so when you're in the empire you're in the privilege during the power. And i think there are some people of color who are part of those groups that are proximal to more so our daughter's twenty two She and her friends law them. Raising church catholic or protestant. They want nothing to do with that. And yet they're social justice warriors. They're fighting for the planet. They're fighting for the environment. They're fighting to to restore families at the all these kind of things. Where do you see this coming from. Because when i look at some of the progressive christian spaces even even the ones that were part of. I don't see them banding together. I see them sharing pain and healing wounds. Exactly what. i don't see another church kind of rising up a collective redemptive community. And i'm just wondering where do we find that you know cannot to Be overly pessimistic. But i'm wondering about the future of organized religion especially in this country. Because you're right. I don't see a lot of I don't see that coming out. From from many organized churches. I see differences being made by individual people who understand the need for justice and their role. In promoting justice i see people wanting to emulate movers and shakers who are doing the work who are walking the walk and who are getting their hands dirty with justice issues and having that spread. I hope that that's the person that i can be. Because that's what my faith has always called me to be. That's the way. I understand the gospel. That's the way i understand. What this manning galilee dead two thousand years ago. Unfortunately i think your guess is as good as mine because i'm In terms of religion. I love the religion. I love the church. I grew up in. I still have a lot of love for it. Even though i think it doesn't have as much acceptance for me these days but i'm encouraged by movements that i see happening in this country i'm encouraged by the flow of social issues. It's an up and down kind of thing when i see satori things happening but then an awareness and resolve after events that may happen in this country that call people to action That's where i get my hope from. That's where i get my hope from. That's where i get my energy from to continue moving forward when i see so many people marching and protesting. I think that's kind of what really electrified people in the late. Sixty s. I'm not saying that this is the The exact same type of moon. But i do see a lot of people who are supercharged. Now about issues with justice. That's what excites me. That's what gives me energy to continue fighting for it because we all gotta do our part It's keeping up the energy. It's remembering that. The fight is far from over. But i am optimistic about that. A little bit more than i am about A lot of Organized nominations yeah. I'm with you. I think that having been part of some of those organizations at various levels were kind of in this limited space right now in history. The way i see it in i think a lot of those organizations are still getting checks from people who are much more traditional. And we'll even if they don't have maga- stickers on their cars they kind of have this warped remembrance of the good old days and they want to see know. Why can't we just kind of keep things the way they are as well. The good old days weren't good for a lot of people and very much part of the gospel. The the good news that we ascribe to it saying well until it's good for everybody is not good for anybody exactly right. So i feel like because we're in this in between space a lot of those institutions including seminaries are kinda stuck so even though individually some of them might be very much social justice warriors. And what have you. The board of trustees the president. Of course they donors. Yeah because that's where it all happens and yet there is shrinking and dying right. So i think what i'm hearing you say i think is in a we believe that the spirit guide is the one that's moving in the direction you know that that whole long arc of justice and so the rocks will cry out if none of understanding what god is up too. So i feel like god is up to something. God may not need church if the turkey is going to be a stick in the mud exactly right just protecting its own ass as just like no. It's like y- okay. Well you you'll don't have a guarantee that you're going to be viable organization going.

Mosaic Megachurch Pastor Erwin McManus on the Genius of Jesus
"A lot of times genius is not expressed in physics mathematics is expressed in so many different arenas of life but you have to have a domain where that genius is expressed. And i think that's where the genius jesus lost because there isn't an expected domain. This is hang. Hang on just want to say. That's a really cool idea. That's another idea. I've never thought of that. That's a big idea what you just said that. He didn't have you know he didn't write sonnets. He didn't right I it so yeah. So he just lived his life and share things that other people grabbed and wrote down so keep going. But that's a fascinating concept. This is why the genes of jesus is so easily missed because his domain was the human spirit that his work of art was the way his teachings his ideas his influence transformed what it looked like to be human. And so when you have a genius that affects the domain of humanity. It can be so easily overlook oxygen in the room. You don't think about the air in the room except when there is no oxygen add. The domain of jesus is the transformation of the human spirit. Now eric during unicorn during covert everybody has like their crazy moments and i wrote this book during quarantine. I was in my back house and having a conversation with myself which. I do all the time which is why. I'm rarely lonely. And but you know how sometimes you have those conflicting voices and you're not sure. Which one is you. But you're having an argument with yourself. And and i had the stock. How odd that. My entire life is centers around this person. Who two thousand years ago now. I know i'm not supposed to be having that question because i'm the founder of mosaic patrick's church. I'm a follower of jesus. But i always have these these questions and and i thought to myself how odd that my whole life is centered around this person named jesus said one thing i can't deny is that my life has been changed by jesus but objectively. I could argue that. Jesus doesn't exist. I could argue that. Jesus isn't god. But i can't actually argue that. My life hasn't been changed by this dynamic. That i've identified as jesus so i had this thought either at been changed by the reality of jesus being god himself or have been changed by the idea of

Major Climate Changes Inevitable and Irreversible – IPCC’s Starkest Warning Yet
"Climate change has been top of the agenda recently as the latest ipcc. Report came out earlier. This month the intergovernmental panel on climate change produces one of these reports every six to seven years to summarize the fourteen thousand scientific papers that have been published on historic climate models global warming and its implications on the planet and the findings of this report are clear. Humans are responsible for the planet warming at a rate that is unprecedented in at least the last two thousand years this warming is driven by increased greenhouse gas emissions of which co. Two and. Methane are the major contributors. This is already leading to hotter heat. Waves wetter monsoons more frequent droughts and the oceans warming at their fastest rate since the end of the last full ice age. Some of the impacts us. Humans have had on the planet on now irreversible. We are going to warm. The planet by one point five degrees c more than pre industrial levels. No matter what we do now sea levels are going to rise by several meters over the next two thousand years the ice sheets will continue to melt and the oceans will become more and more acidic. But please don't switch off just yet. I promise this show is not all doom and gloom and i know all too well how listening to the facts about climate change can make you feel like the world is very literally on fire and there is nothing we can do. So what is the point in even trying well. The science is clear on that too. There is hope if we can reduce our global carbon emissions to net zero by twenty fifty. The planet will quickly stop warming. And if we start absorbing more carbon than we produce it'll even start cooling down again and those extreme weather events will become less extreme again

Rabbi Yehudah Glick on Building a Third Temple on the Temple Mount
"People are not allowed to pray on the temple mount. So i'm allowed to visit but i'm i'm theoretically not allowed to pray. Is this rule changing or changed. I know you are working. So t tell me where are we we. We really made a change. And as i said in the past anybody who moved his lips was immediately arrested today. More and more jobs. Come on wait a minute. You're not kidding people. Move your lips in the past. That was what what situation was. Five hundred and ten years ago up there and i start moving my lips. What what happens. Succo cop the. Yeah the the. The jordanian palestinian walks would immediately call the police and the police would say. Listen this the status quo and then we can't allow that. But really i wanna i wanna. I just prefer looking towards the future. Because i have a illness. I don't know if you know. I'm very optimistic. Like it and i believe that we can bring the change. And we're bringing the change. And i really want to tell you that i have the privilege of here being right now as you said. We're all our hearts in israel and that's where we live but i'm here now with hadas who's really leading leading a revolutionary idea which is no greater than the one that i'm dealing with if i'm dealing with the destruction of the temple home of god that that has been destroyed two thousand years ago and we are rebuilding hadas dealing with present reality. And i think it's important that your listeners. Listen to this. Revolutionary thing that does is leading together with me. Tim foundation look for we get to that. Just give me quickly. Are you advocating rebuilding the temple building a third temple. And where is that just briefly. Because i'm just trying to no it's not. I am not advocating. The bible advocates talks about building a house of prayer for all nations. We want the one only god his he has one. His name is one and we. Are we believe that. The people have been chosen to be light upon the nation's to be a blessing to the families of the earth and teach them that. We're all worshipping one god even though we're the verse in systems and the way he's not mean to be convinced that it should be there. I think it should be there. But i mean. Is this realistic that they would allow jews to build a temple on the temple. Mount strikes me as very difficult if i would ask you eighty years ago. Is it realistic.

Like how were they fake. Is it the age that's faked or is it not alexander the great thumb there might you've got him purchased and alexander the mediocre if stuffed yourself up so apparently this shake has lost a five point two million over these various pieces. I think there was also one that they pay two point. Two million four. A statuette of the greek goddess of victory nike or nike depending on whether you in america or england in ancient greece.

UN Climate Change Report: It's Not Too Late to Control Global Warming
"Becky. The main thing. I took away from the big. Un climate report last week was that climate change is accelerating which is really scary. Because it makes it feel like we're running out of time to control the speed and severity of global warming. Yeah totally and we can put some terrifying numbers behind that scary feeling right so the earth is already almost two degrees. Fahrenheit hotter than it wasn't late eighteen hundreds The rate of warming since nineteen seventy is the fastest in two thousand years. The same goes for sea level rise. It's accelerated since the nineteen seventies ex but the science also makes it clear that it is not too late to control global warming. So we're living through a really exciting moment because everything that humans do now when it comes to climate change will have impacts for the rest of our lives. But why is that like. Why should this moment feel exciting. Instead of dreadful to be clear it can feel both ways like a good climate therapist. Okay go on yes. But here's the case for why it's exciting so the earth is on track for catastrophic warming right now so if humans don't cut greenhouse gases quickly we could see five six even seven feet of sea level rise on average by the end of the century but the flip side of that is that if humans do basically stop burning oil and gas and coal this decade next decade. Then that doesn't happen and yeah that's going to be really really hard. But under that scenario sea levels rise a lot more slowly and they max out at maybe a foot which is a huge difference. Right if we're thinking about kids who are in elementary school right now. In coastal cities all around the world. We'd be saving them from life changing sea level rise this same goes for other impacts from climate change. You know if adults alive today can manage to virtually stop burning fossil fuels in the next twenty years or so. Life looks a lot less polluted a lot less dangerous for kids. Who are alive today.

Who's reading it and sounding like thespian. Mike i'm curious. I'm sure that when you're writing your books you're still learning new things. These podcasts are a little bit more bite sized a little bit more sort of general in their their approach. So i'm curious if you have learned anything new about the fathers so far while doing these. I'm always learning new things about the fathers and new things from the father's every time i go into these texts. The texts that have survived are mostly detects that are inexhaustible and so much of the rest of it has just disappeared. It's vanished. Think about it. There was no printing press. You know there was no way of preserving texts so these are the documents that have been carefully preserved for two thousand years at great expense. Because you had to hire a scribe to do it. And it wasn't on acid free paper so whatever the scribe did might last twenty years. If you're lucky and then you'd have to have it done again and again and again. These are the texts that have survived because they're inexhaustible time i go over them i'm learning. I'm learning something new. The other thing about it. That's important in my work. My sure knowledge that these authors are not dead. These brothers are very much still alive and they can be invoked. Ask their help. If i'm having trouble interpreting their text and they'll intercede for me these are saints of the church their family to me in so i can go to them and that's something i do. I don't wanna sound like some kind of airy semi-mythic here but this is something that really is an advantage to us and we should make use of it. I'm not gonna make any claim for special revelations about about the shepherd of hormuz or anything like that. I still have have the limitations of knowledge of what's on the page i have. What's on the age. I have what others have found through research. But i believe that the saints and the angels do guide us to the knowledge that we need have and they usually they usually do that by guiding me to sources other sources illuminating sources..

"Joined by turkish tour. Guide lally sermon iran. Bali thank you for inviting gets a pleasure now first of all when we're in the town of konia i know from my experience taking groups around people get a little bit like an anxious. It seems a little more conservative. Women are more covered up into town like this described the atmosphere in cornea compared to a place like izmir or ankara. Well as you just put into words. It's little bit more conservative. But what's attract people's attention is not the conservatives off the town being a conservative is not a bad thing. It's just the personal understanding of how you want to practice your life and your religion. The reason i'm saying is that muslim women prefer if they are developed. They prefer to cover up but in different religions. People don't or may or may not need to show their face with what they wear because there's a visual aspect to it. It attracts attention. Otherwise cornea is not any different than any more conservative city anywhere in the world. Okay so different Groups in different religions will have their women wearing hats and their men wearing beers visual indicator. Then you to said if there was not you would not notice. A life is not different in konya than anywhere else in turkey. It's just men have more beards and women have more scarfs. That's okay we're going to go to the market now when you step into a market like anywhere. It's sort of a cultural scavenger hunt and you have a chance to learn about the culture from the market if you were going to take one of our listeners into the marketing konia. What are some of the things you would see. That would give you a better understanding own loved the marketing. First of all. What i love is that it's was a market two thousand years ago. One thousand five hundred years ago one thousand years ago five hundred years ago and today it's still at the same place in the same layout and more or less.

That's the foundation of what it means to be jewish as passing on stories Were the combination of thousands of years of stories and in regards to gimenez oral history project We collected stories of communities of people who who hadn't been given a platform to share. They hadn't been given a microphone. They hadn't been given an opportunity to talk about what happened to them when they lived and fled countries throughout the middle east. North africa and their stories are an incredibly critical part of contemporary jewish history. And where we are. Today with establishment of the state of israel nineteen forty eight posts showa post arab nationalism and uprisings in the middle east and north africa there was a major disruption of over two thousand years of continuous jewish life in the middle east north africa. Kinda came to an end and that is a huge part of the jewish story. And we have this very unique opportunity to collect the stories from the people who lived through this historical moment in time and it was an honor to collect these stories and hopefully add them to the record of jewish

Very large private practice Literally hundreds of people and things got really busy and continued busy since the pandemic sort of rinsed broken out and my private practice for my expenses went crazy too but in so like one of the things that that has become very clear is that there are a pervasive narratives about. Let's say kobe that you watch on television. That are actually not the narrative that any of my clients were having all my clients during during that during the most twenty twenty or a really growing and they were they were Recalibrating their lives. They were bleeding relationships or entering into new ones. Change rethinking their jobs all of that. You know so from my perspective. I think kobe more like steer. Because i think it works on each one individually now that is just that is just the way in which i have experienced similarly i have clients who who absolutely believe that that the vaccine they wanted yesterday. They want it yesterday. Move on and that's right for them right and they don't have the side effects. Whatever and then. I have other clients who are very much.

"We're going to happen and to help a church do that and so About six years ago we accept their invitation to come to hollywood and work with a church filled with creatives who are engaging a very post christian culture definitely post-christian industry in the entertainment industry of hollywood into kind of help them re imagine how the church can shape itself inform itself to be more life giving in the source of this kind of culture. And i'm gonna just ask you let bit you talked to. Bat and mention the would paradigm shift sites a unlearn and relent. The ways of thinking those sort of mental maps Kinda chat shortcuts. That we have and assumptions. We make wells that we produce. I'm going to ask you about that before before we got to the. Us europe europe being the feature off the states. You mentioned on the front of the book the post christian well and you've mentioned a few times. Just give us a framework. Would your understanding all christian. Well then why and how does that present itself as an irritation. That can actually produce that pill. Yeah people will say no one post christianity is and i so actually i think you do you just think of it in terms of pre christianity and. Here's what i mean. If you think about the the cultural context of the first century that jesus appeared in the book of acts that we read and we understand very well you have a faith movement that is existing in a culture where these people who are following. Jesus have no power. They have no political power. No real social capital. They have very little money. they don't own any properties. There are no religious professionals within their movement. There are jewish. Priests and pharisees but not followers in the way of jesus. They don't have professionals yet. They're living in homes and to be honest. They're being persecuted for their faith. And so there's a marginalization taking place that is because their belief system was on the outside of culture not been embraced as the way to view the world. You know all that changes in about three twelve. Ad with constantine has a vision and ends up kind of the edict of milan basically taking this christian fringe movement and mainstreaming at making it kind of the de facto state religion of rome and what that does is it now gives power and prestige and recognition to something. That's been on the fringes it ever since then. Western culture has been defined and build around the ethics the meta narrative of values. You know the belief system of christianity and that has gone now for about two thousand years until the last hundred years or so..
Travel with Rick Steves
Why I Love Rome
"Let's start the hour with three guides from rome. Who tell us what they love. Most about their city rome. It's the eternal city to one of the most romantic and popular destinations in the whole world but many visitors met with a harsh reality when they wander rooms. Ancient streets overcrowded sites chaotic. Urban seems unpredictable transit strikes. If you're not prepared. Rome can be a challenge. But many will agree with me that it's all worth it. Bernardo francesca russo and susanna perugini specialize in guiding american tourists around italy and. They've all made rome their home because they love their city. They join us now on travel. With rick steves to share their love of rome and share with us some tips on how we might enjoy it too you know. Francesca susannah bondar. Generate one so rome. I love history. And there's history every where you look. Francesca you're born and raised in rome. What's it like just to go to work. Surrounded by all that history. Sometimes i think about it that i can wait for the bus right by where julius caesar was stabbed to death. So i'm thinking that rome is a place where history goes from printed words on the page of a book to something. That's alive every minute of every day so you can feel it. Something had happened. Two thousand years ago happened right now. And there's layer after layer after layer. I mean there's like an archaeological dig isn't it but it's right before your very eyes. He has over two thousand years of history. Front is every single moment. Wherever you turn all at once pub is living in rome shape your outlook. I would say that most romans take it for granted. I think they gain a sense of how special the city is when they go elsewhere and they always find everything else so new so you become you become aware of how what it means to live with two thousand years of history once you leave it i think if you grow in it and you see coliseum every day when you drive to work in the sense you don't even see it any more than you might make a case that if you live in a land with very little with the shallow history. You don't appreciate history quite as much. i mean. The oldest building in my town is one hundred years old building a new town twenty times that could maybe if you live with things that are two thousand years old and every day i think you forget it and it just becomes something many conversations with my roman friends who say they've never been inside the coliseum where he could for take it for granted. Yeah but once you open their eyes to one thing then they understand and appreciate as well

The case for co-ops, the invisible giant of the economy | Anu Puusa [TEST]
"Wow i get to do that a lot around here. It's finally someone else's turn. So yes i happen to marital wonderful man named ted which is pretty rare in finland where i'm from. It's not a typical finnish name at. Aw trust me i myself. I'm a business professor. And i love teaching but you know what my students are fed up. They have really fed up. With the way the business is growing the environment and making wealth inequality was and putting money and profits above all else. And what really makes them mad is when i tell them about the cooperative movement the angry because once they understand how cooperatives they feel like a secret solution has been kept hayden before i tell you more about why cooperative sauce so great. I want to explain what they are. A corporate. dave is an organization that is owned by its members who are also its customer and decision maker and unlike most businesses where certain owners can buy more power and influence in a corporate day of every member has one vote which was the revolutionary idea back when the model was first introduced a regular mind not dimension a woman with no significant means or prestigious position in the society as an owner and partner in business on heard of perhaps it's still a bit revolutionary. Copa dave's exist in a sweet spot between the for profit and nonprofit worlds. They uniqueness is based on the idea of duality. They have two distinct but complementary roles on one hand they act like any other business and try to make money but on the other hand cooperatives are and do so much more they are scented enterprises run by and for then members and they tried to achieve economical but also social and cultural goes to benefit those members who are just regular people like you and me and what has happened for. Almost two hundred years is that cooperatives have proven to make decisions with a view across generations instead of quarter to quarter to benefit more people and wells in communities that might not otherwise attract investment while. Still being competitive and innovative. Sounds pretty good right. I guess that's why. At the end of a clause the other day student all red and chest up basically shouted at me of always been a straight a student. Done all the work read. All the books are now you telling me that all my life. I've missed hearing about a movement with this magnitude. I get this a lot. The organized corporate they've movement started in eighteen forty four with the russia's society of equitable pioneers. This was a group of weavers and artisans who are of desperation. Opened a store together to sell things that they could neither get nor afford alone. The cooperative movements from there and became a global phenomenon. Many of the modern day credit unions and farm credit systems. You see in. North america are descendants of the famous cooperative reiffeisen system in germany and here in finland. A man named hanis gephardt is considered to be the father of the finnish cooperative movement in the nineteenth century. He introduced cooperatives to help. People tackle debt poverty and unemployment. It turns out. This is the foundation opo country known for its democratic values high quality education and the happiness of its citizens and this line of impact of cooperative movement can be found in other places in the world to. I'm proud to say that invalided terms. Finland is one of the most cooperative countries in the world. We have about five point. Five million people who have over seven million memberships in cooperatives. That's run everything from groceries to banks each time. I stop at grocery cooperative. When i feel in my guest tank edo jointly owned restaurant. Stay at a hotel or buy clothes. Ohad west of i could bonuses. That can be up to five percent. And when i pay with bank card get an additional half percent off and i know that win. The copa davis doing well. It's not funding a single person's luxury vacation in the bahamas every year. A governance body comprised of elected representatives decides. How any operating surplus will be used. Some of the money will go back to the members. For example this year all consume the corporate dave boyer's caroline also or beco- or as we call it it's part of the group is the biggest corporate of croup in finland. They had a so close of two percent or members purchases and twelve percent return on money invested. When you add up the savings and the return my family received more than two thousand years back which is more than we spend on groceries in one month not to mention that across race above seven percent cheaper than its main competitor. i'm a member owner intrigue cooperatives and my husband has four memberships consumer a bank an insurance and water cooperative. We have two beautiful girls who are ten and twelve years old. And they're also member owners of the s group then. Memberships caused us one hundred euros. Each we want to pass on the legacy and teach them about the benefits of corporate gives early on and of course they're very happy about the yearly interest on cooperative capital. But it's just about us getting money back. It's about the greater good for our community. I'm not only talking about taxes and employment. Our consumer cooperative is the biggest employer in the area. I'm talking about support for young people. Sports arts university and cultural events for example as a member of the board of beco- or a few years ago we agreed to build a sports hall fully exa which is a nearby city here in the eastern part of finland belonging to our cooperatives operational area after we built it. The city signed a very long term rental agreement with us so financially investment made sense and of course it was a major gesture to the local people who not have proper facilities to do all kinds of sports in another case. We ended up rejecting the investment proposal regarding building a senior house downtown. The idea was very good one but we declined because it was the big hosting complex requiring a lot of capital with low expected investment return that would only serve a small part of the membership less than one percent of our over one hundred thousand members and therefore we decided against it

If i'm being honest some pretty crazy details about how this world we're living in is shifting. So can you share some of those details with fire nation in more importantly what you recommend we do about it three or four hours a couple moments. I think the biggest thing. You don't have to be a you know a brilliant to see that we are going through some major changes. The changes accelerating the way people look at life the way they work. They work their way. Think about families. All shifting was already happening because we have several ways that are heating. At one time we have a generational way. Baby boomers aging right millennials.

I wanna take one second fire nation so you get it. When you get numbers that big we start using trillion and governments use the retrial billion.

Belgium's Sourdough Library
"Is where i get to introduce you to. Carl met. Who runs the sour dough library in belgium on the baker Confectioner and when i started to work for the company i started as a test baker in the lab. I immediately got interested by this. Though that i never seen before i i read about it and we had some theoretical explanation school about sourdot but to actually never made one so being a baker. You want to know more about what's going on in there and then you start feeding it. Then you see bumbling and it's alive it's like a pet when you big brentwood that it's so different than when you make breath just with yeast and then when you when you start getting into sour dough. Will you see that there is a lot of things that are undiscovered and so that that there is an amazing work that can be done so carl sounds. He was working in a test kitchen. Yeah and it's actually really funny because you know you'd think that like his he'd worked for some like artisanal bakery but like pure does the company that owns the sour dough library is just a huge industrial baking supply company and pretty early on they wanted to sell sour dough making supplies and so they started researching using a sample of sour dough from san francisco. Of course would this one. I have a very special relationship because it was my my very first cy widow. I saw my life. And so i started refreshing it then i i had to bake with it and then we decided to do a study on sour dough. And it's this one. It's a sour dough from ulta meurah in the south of italy and this is a sour dough that has been around for probably more than two thousand years. 'cause he has been described in a book from horatio was a roman poets

It wasn't just any more of a concept that everything is just vibrating at different frequencies curate the structure and the form in which are avatars engage with the simulation or the game or the soldier to whatever. You wanna call it. It wasn't just The a concept and more. But now i actually experience and saw that everything is vibrating at different frequency to create that that form that i'm engaging with as well are people that are different frequencies there's no So i completely understand where that's coming from and for those people who are going to this going. Oh this is some weird. Like sci fi stuff you talking. I haven't experienced for people who are experiencing and they did do that. You can start seeing this. But it does subside. Doesn't it for you. Is it still ongoing or did this honestly lip subside. Terms of the law generic nature of of reality. Yes it's change change. Yeah so as well as all of us right all of our consciousnesses rising at such a rapid rate right now and that is why do i think that is because it happens. It's just what's happening right now. So every you know period of time fifty two thousand years or so. There's like in this level of consciousness is Wave of consciousness that goes through purity waves of consciousness that go through which boy not just humans but everything in the conscious field. So it's not just humans you given the opportunity to move up in consciousness room. You don't have to go. There are a lot of people who don't Who choose not to That's fine and yeah. It's not about that no worse than it's just about choice right right. So what happens to be interest- interesting conversation but frequency and people You know you said earlier that that the frequency happens within you and i agree and that's been acceleration buddhism that frequency consciousness happens within you and from with that within that you affect the physical world around you and but what happens to the people who don't want to raise their frequency because It's too much for them. For whatever reason experience with them. Well what happens.

Nicolas Flamel and the Philosopher's Stone
"If you're a harry potter fan the name nicholas fla mel is probably bringing some bells for you. Nicholas and his wife. Paranoia are mentioned in jk rollings. I harry potter and the philosopher's stone. They're both over six hundred years old. Because in the novel nicholas has discovered a magical artifact that makes him immortal in the united states. this object is known as the sorcerer's stone but for simplicity. I'm gonna stick to the british term philosopher's stone now supposedly this stone is incredibly powerful legends about it have been around for about two thousand years. They say it has the power to turn any metal into gold. And it's connected to this beverage called the of life which keeps you alive forever. It's not super clear of the philosopher's stone makes the elixir. Or if it actually is the elixir or if the recipe for the stone is close enough to the elixir. That if you can make one you can make the other either way. The central idea is consistent. If you discover the philosopher's stone you can become immortal. Ancient accounts describe the stone. Bright red and it wasn't really a stone at all. it was actually more like a powder or a fluid something you'd add to a bubbling vile to create anything. You want and i do mean anything. See alchemists just trying to get rich and achieve immortality. They were trying to unlock the fundamental secrets of the universe. Like why lead is led and knock gold or why me and not someone else and the idea was that with a for stone you could transform anything or anyone into whatever you want it. And it's not like there's just one stone because according to out chemical tradition you can actually make a philosopher's stone so researchers weren't necessarily trying to locate one. They were trying to create it. Supposedly the closest anyone ever got was this guy named nicholas flannel.

I control your tenure. I control what conferences you go to. Don't go to. It doesn't look it doesn't have to look like a conspiracy to you. It just looks like you. You know being able to go home and face her wife and say yeah before going to still be able to make mortgage payments but at a level above that which you just as you just talked about you said. The church wanted to control the narrative because they wanted to be in control. Well that's conspiratorial and clearly as right now as more and more gets revealed today about how completely corrupt the churches. But we don't ever wanna call the church on that you know. We still have to walk carefully in science you know. My thing has been this idea of controlling the narrative about consciousness that there can be no extended consciousness that any kind of spiritual experience that people are having completely the delusion it doesn't happen in the holding to that in the face of all evidence to country is conspiratorial. Its way to control and social engineer. People so i think this idea of when you look through the all this stuff from the social engineering lens and in and start accepting that and this is rome. This is what i love about row is that you know the romans do this. Two thousand years ago that when you about social engineering about controlling the people as an alternative to dominating the people through war we can dominate the people through beliefs and ideas and stuff like that so we don't have to kind of agree on that don't have to hash out any further because let's get back to come to the book a little bit indirectly and that's that this story about second century rome in judea is just..

"It's it's really true so one of the benefits. Of course this show is. Is the detail the idea that you could be taking. Two thousand years decade by decade allows us to create various what i would call micro narratives or to be more specific these threads that create the tapestry that no one of them in of themselves is the story. But they add to the greater story that becomes our hd world and of course that story cannot be complete by any stretch of the imagination. There'd be a big frigging gaping hole in it without china and seeing these kind of micro narratives come together in the way that we have and being able to give them. The attention they deserve is truly what i love about doing eighty history. It paints such a detailed picture especially when you listen to in its theology form. Yes yet thus couldn't put it better myself. This is why we're doing this to look at things that this pool. I believe you have some questions for me. I'm going to on today's as best as i can. So here's the thing that i really wonder anytime. You have this grand chaos especially when we're well outside of the modern era where you can't theoretically have a report or stick a camera and a microphone in someone's face and ask a bunch of people for those that were just your average subject on the street as it were. I'm curious how many of them really wanted this. How many of them actually desired change. Not just to this extent but in this way have so much trouble believing that if you're just making your way living your life and you have these incredible events happening around you and i suppose the human experience of it is anything. Did they actually want this. I don't have a clear-out few because unfortunately in this history the common person average member of the public doesn't really get to say. And i would love to know. That's for sure what comes to mind for me..
Karaites: Bible Only, Please with Shawn Lichaa
"Is someone that we've wanted to have on the podcast for a long time. But we're trying to figure out the right place and we realized that we were starting this series on the bible. We thought this is the right place to have a discussion with somebody who is a leading voice within the community. That's a group of jews that basically it doesn't accept one of the key pillars of rabbinic judaism. Which is that at mount sinai when moses was given what we call the torah by god the written torah moses was also given an oral torah at the same time by god and that oral torah was preserved for hundreds and hundreds of years until some period after the destruction of the second temple when it was written down initially as the mishna and then over time in additional ways as what we call the talmud and the carrots represent a group of jews. That didn't believe that there was an oral tradition. Given at mount sinai that was if basically equal magnitude as the written torah in the bible that the written torah their written bible has a much more significant. Or perhaps i should say supreme significance in what we understand judaism to be what we understand god to one of the jews etc. The percentage of jews. That are carrots has waxed and waned over the course of the last two thousand years of jewish history. It was much much bigger in the middle ages. And of course here in america when we talk about the various groups of jews that there are people think about you know the nominations orthodox conservative reform reconstructionist renewal but often. Don't really think about carrots largely. Because it's a small community here in america and our guest today is working to preserve its traditions and make them available for study or consideration more widely. We're really excited to have this conversation today. With lisa who a leading voice in the carrot community he is a board member of the carrot juice of america and founder of the carrot. Press in the a press self-description they say our mission is simple. When kerry literature ceased to be commonly available the jewish world lost a tremendous amount of scholarship exegesis in diversity. Students have jewish theology and history lost access to a rich heritage and carrots themselves. Were no longer. The masters of their own intellectual heritage. The karaoke press aims to change all this and they publish a combination of translations of older care a literature as well as more contemporary ratings. Sean leash himself is the founder of a blue thread a jewish blog with a threat of right throughout and he speaks widely about carrot judaism at venues across america including synagogues jewish the library of congress the association of jewish libraries. And now judaism unbound so sean lee shia welcome to judaism unbounded so great to. Have you excited to be here. We're excited to have this conversation We've been talking about the bible in this series and it's interesting to now move from talking about the bible too. Well what people do with the bible. So i think that some of us have a very unsophisticated understanding of them and some of us have an extremely unsophisticated understanding of other. So i would say that. The thing that i know is basically that i think it's it's worth saying because i think people may say that says strange sounding word that actually in hebrew aramaic like kara means to read so as also a way of talking about the torah. So my understanding is that it's people who really don't believe that the judaism that emerges from the time after the bible is is accurate you know and so really what we should be doing is going back to the bible so now take me more sophisticated than that. There is judaism after the bible. And that judaism is correct. Now the question is like what does is and what does correct me. maybe i'd give you like one nuance to what you said. But it's a massive paradigm shift in what most people think about judaism. There is a written law and there is an oral law. Right so god. According to this form of gave the written torah and oral torah explaining it carrot judaism does not believe that god gave an oral law carried using god gave a written torah. And that's what the carrots follow. Now we also have the entire hebrew bible. That's tanaka and we use that as a source of our laws and understanding difficult times and biblical precedent. But we definitely believe that there is a judaism. Astor the tanakh after the bible closes. And let's talk about what that means every day for everybody. When did this split happen or did it happen. Multiple times between those. Who believe that the that there is an oral and that there isn't so look from a theological perspective right and like we. Carrots would say there was never an oral law and or the people who decided to follow the law broke off away from. What's carrots would say was true and these words very lucy. True historical israelite israelites. Judaism but definitely in the second temple. You see lots of different juice groups in the middle ages. The issa whites the whites anna nights the rights. You're the nights all these different jewish movements in all these different places in all these different times. So yes i think the answer. Your question is that there are many different times where judaism came apart came back together. Came apart came back together. And maybe i should rephrase that instead of saying we're judaism cap came back to but maybe the people who ascribe to judaism have different views at sometimes are more divergence from each other or sometimes came closer to each other so i really want to sit with what you said to start that which is from a care perspective the rabbinate. We haven't used that word yet. But the rabbit nights branched off and followed a new oral law. That had that was not from a care perspective sort of from the divine and i want to sit with that. Because i think there's such a deep way in which even those of us who aren't like orthodox rabbinate jews. We've we've sort of soaked into us that like Judaism of judaism this idea of an oral tradition. You know tomlin that's sort of. There's even for people who don't go to synagogue very much. They might not know what talmud is in deep way but like there's that original document and then there's all these things later that eventually i written but the idea. They're circulating around as oral teachings and they sort of are given the status. That's maybe a slight bit lower than that written doc. Foot and in many ways equal to that original document and sometimes we would even argue as judaism unbound like the newer stuff kind of replaces the torah ways in which there are correctives made from a rabbi perspective in those talmud texts in other texts that sort of change what the torah or other biblical texts are say. This word rabbinate is not a word i had ever heard until i met you but like i i'd love to talk about like there's a term rab night that exists. Wants you back out and say There are other kinds of judaism. If it's almost like we've had conversations with people were like the phrase white jew comes up like if you think all jews are white. It's a silly thing to say. White jews right. It only makes sense. When white jews is a a subsection of broader group of jews similarly the term rabbinate only make sense. When you recognize there are other kinds of jews like carrots. So i'd love to hear from you sean. Like what is it to sort of inhabit a judaism that people don't even know as judaism ism that like is is so fundamentally erased like the terminology that we have is built around. Its own existence when you zoom out and you think judaism and then you kind of say. Oh wait a minute. What's what is rob nights. Era nights jew is somebody who follows the rabbinic tradition so keira heights or are jews. Who follow the curator. Kerr carry tradition In this case. It's a bible based and not tom based tradition juice. Follow the rabbinic tradition. So that includes the entire hebrew bible and all of been literature. Now you've mentioned this question about like never having to think about what it means to be around nights in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy nine and haddassah magazine jewish traveller section a. Rabbi his name is rabbi borrow helmand. He traveled to cairo egypt and he was studying arabic in cairo egypt. Now i'm gonna put a little bit of a notes here in my family comes from the jewish community of cairo. So back to this right. He's he's traveling to cairo. And he's there and he's learning arabic and he is telling his muslim arabic teacher. I cannot come to class on chabad. Because i'm an observant jew. And i won't be the muslim teacher asks in a very comforting friendly voice. Basically what kind of jew are you. Are you a carrot or a rabbi nights and this rabbi tells us. That's the first time you ever had to identify as around nights. And the truth is that unless you are living in egypt and the last century probably no other place in the world where the carrots were prominent enough where somebody would have to say. Are you to revenue.

So we've been doing this series on the bible and it's really exciting to be able to talk to somebody who's written a what you call exactly a biblical novel. A you know that generates itself from a biblical story. But i love to start by understanding like how you chose to write a novel based on the biblical story. You know you've written other books before wh what was the process that brought you to take this on the initial impulse really came from a children's book that i was given to read to my own kids which was sort of a children's version of the book of esther. I expected it to be simpler somehow or to kind of make the book of esther more straightforward and it turned out didn't it all in it actually raised all of the questions that had always had about the book of esther but it was like wait a second. Why was it that. I was always told that esther was really virtuous and it turns out. She's concubine a harem. And what about this fusty character. Who seems to actually have made what we would consider to be the quote virtuous choice by saying no. I won't parade make it. There were all these questions and then plot holes Hush worse who it seems by the end is sort of shocked by what heyman has been doing. This genocide earlier on is like yeah. Sure whatever you know. There's just so many there's so many sort of plot holes and inconsistencies and and my kids had all sorts of questions and it kind of made me want to go back to the book of esther itself and investigate on which is not something. I really have a lot of experienced with the local tax that that was the initial impulse that drove me back with all of these questions. You know a lot of times on this podcast. We've talked about wanting to have people. Will we call regular jews. You know people that are unauthorized. Feel empowered to take on jewish topics and jewish practices and reimagine. Them and a lot of people are intimidated to do that because they say well. I'm not a rabbi. I didn't study. How do i know how to do you know and so. I really love to talk to somebody who's done that kind of day. She's move of saying well. I'm going to really you know. Come to this. Not as somebody who's had a tremendous amount of expertise before i started and i'm curious both about the process of getting started. And did you feel intimidated in that way. And how did you get over it. And also the process of like. How much research did you do until you felt confident to the point of saying okay. Yeah i actually can write a novel about this or like you say i can contribute mid rushed to this book which you know other people say well i mean who are you after. Two thousand years totally. It's a great question. And i am absolutely a regular jew as you said i love that term and i think actually the what you said so the the research was totally tied into my getting to a point of being able to say i can do this but but not in the way. You'd expect not so much. Because i got to a point and i i felt like i knew enough it was because i got to a point and i realized that no one knows and so it gave me the freedom to go in. You know. I mean. I i began by going to my rabbi. This is in park slope brooklyn congregation. Bethelehem rachel to moaner. She's really wonderful. Insertive saying pronounced guest. Oh yeah She so great. And i said you know where do i even start and i was really open about how little i knew and she really you know is like in her office. So here's where you can even begin to go looking for interpretations translations other stories Mid rush of course. And i think for me one of the things that was very freeing in particular was was reading. The very ancient rabbis takes on The book of esther which were wild like really really wild things. That don't have any seem to have any basis in the book itself like in one hayman's daughter Heenan has a daughter first of all and she mistakes heyman for mortified or the other way round in in prayed and drops feces on his head on her father's head and it's like where does that come from in in many things like this and i think the more i read in the more outrageous at all was thought well if the ancient babylonian rabbis could do this then i guess i can. Do you know. I wanted to talk a little bit. About how your book is structured because on the one hand it's not unique to your book. There are many books that have a structure where you know chapter by chapter sort of different. I guess it's not different narrators in your case but different protagonists. I remember reading As i lay dying in school. Growing up by william faulkner which was like my first time with that and i didn't like that book i found it very disorienting but do i have grown into that style and i bring it up because i actually think you could see it as like. Oh interesting counterintuitive style for a novel or you could say when it comes to biblical text. I'll speak for myself. This is how i read it. Basically like when i'm reading a biblical text my process in my head is like For smidge i am in the text. I am like in the book of esther and then flashing to my life and that. I'm back to the book of esther and then maybe i'm to my parents. Lives are my ancestors recently but what was happening in terms of the structure of the book and in what ways might actually have something to teach us about how to approach whether it's biblical texts or any kinds of ancient texts that we work with. Yeah it's so interesting. What you say when you describe the way that you read the text in that you're going between them to your own life and two other to your ancestors etc because i think that's i think that's sort of how he read any text in a way. I mean we're always projecting ourselves into it in onto it and Whether consciously or or sort of subconsciously. And so i think in a way the weaving as you're talking about that i do in this book between these different narrators and really without between these very different times. 'cause there's the there's contemporary brooklyn there is nineteen seventies washington. Dc in ancient persia is meant to really have the effect that you're talking about that you have read which is which is to bring us closer together and to reckon with not only how much has changed but actually how much continues to be the same. In how how shaped we are by the stories that have come before us in shaped we continue to be and that we become i think then also more aware of the power of the stories. We are telling now you know to ourselves to our children to the people around us and the effect that that will have on their lives and their future. The potential for that kind of writing but also for reading is to make those connections and maybe be a little more conscious of our own powers as we as we tell our stories.

"Of the most relevant books that we have to our modern era of church because this is a book where jesus literally speaks directly to the church absolutely. Yeah you're right and it's a. It's an era of wh- of where christianity is we've been given a mission and we're gonna face persecution and its its predictive. It's telling us what's going to happen to the church in the future so it's relevant relevant. That's what that's what. I don't understand is it's not like it's this. Maybe people don't think it's relevant. Maybe it's been maybe the stigma associated with the is that. It's this bazaar crazy. Well they're scared of it. How many a lot of people all of us when we started this like. Oh i've never read this book. I'm so frightened by it right type of thing. That's true. I mean i don't know i'm just thinking like why hasn't this book changed our lives into are looking at things that's really where i was at with You know because it's been the crazy stuff and the challenging stuff and man the super hard hitting stuff that jesus just lays out and the truth that is found there through the presentation to john throughout this entire vision. I don't know this is just that some of it There's an urgency. There's an urgency. So the thing is is that. I know we've been way you know everybody's been waiting two thousand years. Since he's words were said. But i know we're looking forward to his return but are we living towards that. That's the question really how much you know. Are we taking to heart these realities what jesus says at the end. Which are he's faithful and he's true and he's going to keep his promises. Yeah it takes faith to believe that like what knowing what you said that it has been two thousand or over two thousand years or whatever it takes faith to believe that when he says he's coming soon he really does mean that because it does to come soon..

"Stillwater the what are the other you know. Include which have the different you know. They have some different areas and now which. Which of these do we need to award. I mean which are lil. Yes so as a re passing day that are these. New head is these that be built So a few of the most prominent schools of thought that of becoming very them print is something known as unitarian is in which i have heard the most so unitarian believes that god is one in being an one in person that is are you see if i'm the by we know that jesus is the word of the lord and the holy spirit is the spirit of the lord so it's very important to understand these two terms. So why do you think that. Jesus is the word of the lord or jesus is known as the word of the lord. Let me help you understand the title given to them. That is you see when we communicate so sandra you'll know what is going on in my mind because of my words. Yeah so my words that we need to you and jesus. Dvd's that father to us all okay him. Because of jesus we know who goddess jesus is the word of the lord because he defeats to us who the father is so because because this is the word of the lord doesn't do something that comes out of the five this model. He is known as the word of the lord because he reveals to us. Who got this so unitarian with that. No jesus like they would. They would end up the word of the lord to move something. Like jesus proceeds from the father smelt seemingly disputed. The holy spirit is the spirit of the lord because he is the busing who madison hots towards jesus as the catechism of the catholic church in its bad graphics. Hundred and eighty nine sees that the spitted deville jesus to a us we will not be able to understand who jesus if the it doesn't move hots in that does because the and that is why the holy spirit is known as the spirit of the law but the unitarian would say that the holy spirit is afford and that is ahead because the holy spirit is not a course. He is a boston all three of the father. The son the spirit are distinct persons. Ask the students need to remember that. And that's what you limitation isn't just though we need to actively avoid that one and the second school of would be binded so did -eckognize the that the will be two distinct persons but they do not believe in the holy spirit. That is something that we need to avoid people from. No if you're dating or a binary dating you're not christian you have to be at trinity into christian that so now own. I mean doing unitarians and bina. -tarian also formed asto scriptural passages. How do yuck the point to the worst of the bible to prove the point and i decided that their interpretation of scripture is wrong and that is why they are wrong because the interpretation of scripture is wrong that taking the by bill and making it say something that they want the by to say they will not let the by talk dan but we can get away with this. Just eat. i mean how even how do you what is right and what i mean. How do you know what. I e yeah. Thank you very much for asking the question. Because if you don't ask me that question i will come across as advocate so so guys you see. I'd okay let me. Just take you back to judge history. So jesus promised his disciples that he would send the holy spirit and the holy spirit would help us and prevented from embracing false doctrines. He said that the gates of would not prevail the judge that he builds so if jesus has been honest and kept his word kept his promise then the holy spirit will never let his judge embrace false doctrines and that is addressing that i have in jesus and not because i think that the georges ready smart and looking back at torches from the time the church has existed the judge has always believed in a triune. God and the judge has always done everything in its power due to proclaim the truth. That god is three in person and one in being and we see that in the catechism of the catholic george like. I just want to encourage everyone to go and read the cdc and just see how beautifully eat. This advocated like honestly. I was so ard by a feeding offered and i want everybody to that to piece go and this easy and this is not something that we have come up with overnight. This is something that the judge has been teaching for two thousand years. So if i have to trust jesus then two thousand years later somebody comes along is that the george has been wrong for two thousand years and and it's not as much an active thing that the judges wrong as much as about the fact that for the past two thousand years jesus did not do anything due to keep his promise and he doesn't respond to talk to the my point is if jesus this promise then the judge that he built upon. The rock has not increased false doctrine. And that is why. I believe that we as judge correct and every other ideology is wrong. I mean the catholic church is such that. Yeah absolutely actually. The judge offers with still on a silver platter dot to anyone who's willing to take a grease wisdom bathed the judges so badly wanting to to us. It is ad choice whether we want to access did not like it's just available via the aspect of life. Absolutely i six or so. Then i think I'm done with my question and a little less of your health. And i'm trying to defend and still Thank you so much. Thank you so much for your nauseating. Y'all glory to god and amen amen absolute me and let some in ended with the little threat to our left mother for guiding us through this hannity. For the laura's with you lesson.

"That which is that. Who is jesus. You see a lot of times we do just that we let our lives be informed by things other than jesus we let are lies being formed by culture as if culture has the answers in the wisdom that we need for actually living through this life and we listened to culture all the time we start behaving according to the pattern of culture. We listen to popular opinion or majority opinion. Hey if more people think that this is right then it must be right. Sometimes there are more people than there are smart people so majority opinion doesn't always work. We listen to people that we trust you. Listen to a person that you trust who stands in opposition to who jesus is run away. What are you listening to. That isn't jesus. We listened to our own feelings. This is how i feel. This is how i make sense of what i see of what i'm experiencing and so we are feelings actually determine what is truth for us on a caution. You don't listen to anything. That isn't jesus peter said for. We weren't making up clever stories when we told you about the powerful coming of our lord. Jesus christ we saw his majestic splendor with our own eyes. The promise of jesus's return is still a promise. I get it. It's been two thousand years since what was promised in the old testament and then refreshed in jesus's life and ministry. It feels like it's been forever and we could certainly be prone to just think well if it hasn't happened yet it must never be happening. But jesus is promise was that he would return and that return is still a promise and so again i ask you not. Just what are you listening to. That isn't jesus. But what are you looking for. That isn't jesus. why are you looking for. That is other than jesus who again let us peek into.

"Joking about that. Of course but here's the thing. Whatever has happened. Maybe it's got you start looking up saying maybe i need god. Maybe i need to start thinking about my life spiritually. Yeah that's what you should be doing. You need to think about him and how much he loves you and how you can run to him. Just a little child falls and hurts himself. What are they do. They run to their parents. Let's get specific. They were under mommy. If daddy's around they'll accept him but they really want mommy and mom takes a little one door arms and hugs him and kisses him and reassures him and maybe kisses their hand or wherever they were hurt or whatever it was that their knee and tells them it'll be all right. Well listen we. All were hurting. You can run into the arms of your father who just ready to receive you. He will receive. You would've been a mess of my life and all these things that are happening to me are because i'd be wrong decisions. What god's still receiving. Yeah he would he would receive you. It's let me help you know first of all. Let's get you right with me. I forgive you of your sin and start changing you from the inside and you can go back to. What looks like a tangled mess. Never be resolved. And you watch what god full do. I don't know what state your life is in right now but i know what the answer to your problems are. It's not an editor. Who jesus christ. You need to come to him. He'll throw his arms around you. He'll forgive you. But must say god. I'm sorry for my sin. You must turn from it. You must put your faith in him and him alone and he will help you. Jesus showed us how much he loved us. What he went to the cross two thousand years ago and died there and our place and spilled his own blood so we can have our sin forgiven and come into a right relationship with god. If you know god in a personal way if jesus is not living inside of you you don't have the assurance that you will go to heaven when you die if you feel as though you're all alone lifeless and you can come to christ right now so we're gonna pray and i'm gonna give you an opportunity to ask jesus christ to come into your life if you need to do that and there might be some that well. You're a believer but you've been running from god in. It's brought a lot of added drama into your life. It's brought a lot of problems you didn't have and you wouldn't have had otherwise but you can brought this on yourself you're reaping what you're so maybe you need to come back to the lord. It's like old joan you know. He was told to go. Preached in nevada. He said no went the opposite direction and the storm came. Maybe you're running from ghana. Storm has come a remember that the lord was there for him even in the storm. He'll be there for you so if you need to come to christ or come back to kim. Here's an opportunity to do it as we close in prayer father. Thank you for your word. Thank you for your love. Thank you for sending jesus to die on the cross and our place and then to rise again from the dead now lord. Jesus we pray that you will speak to heart here..

Catholic Apostolate Center Podcast
"What does it mean to have wisdom. Some people would say that it's a combination of age and experience over the years though. Haven't we all met people who are younger. Who may seem and promptly truly are wise and some who are older who will come across as very foolish. it's not just simply age and experience. It's at that. Experience is reflected on and people learn from that experience. They seek wisdom. They seek the wisdom of others. They see fully the wisdom of god as we hear in the book of wisdom resplendent dunin feeding his wisdom and she is readily perceived by those who love her and found by those who seek her. So there's the seeking of wisdom that were called to have as people of faith. It doesn't just simply happen. It's something that we're called to actively seek into due to also recognize when we are are not being wise when we are not thirsting for the lord when we are unaware when we don't truly recognize that jesus christ is the one who is truly wisdom incarnate. Wisdom made flesh in our world so that we may come to life in him and it's in that wisdom that we learn because god's wisdom is one that we need to seek into learn but it also means that we are prepared prepared for when the lord will come when the end of our lives may come but even before then are we prepared to encounter the lord all sorts of ways and moments. Jesus tells the story about the wise and foolish virgins who lit their lamps and those those lamps went out and you and you say well why. Why didn't they share. Why didn't they share the that. What was given to them. That wanted the other one share in the they. They went off to these merchants. Who in palestine of two thousand years ago. There were midnight merchants who you can buy oil from which no matter how strange that sounds when they come back. The door is locked and they're not permitted him because they were unprepared. That sounds harsh. Jesus is not purposely sounding harsh. What he is saying is we need to recognize. When god's wisdom is calling us to be prepared and to be more and to be ready for his arrival in our lives do. We prepare our hearts and our minds for encounters with christ throughout our day. Or are we foolishly going about our day so dazed and confused by so many things that we have to do or upsets are wary. All these different things and we foolishly think that everything is on us when the wisdom of god is telling us. It's not all anew so seek me and you will find peace and light and strength to face no matter what comes. These are the ways of the lord
