"Laughed. Funny stories prayed with and four friends and competed in memorizing bible verses. She hated that part then one year. When summer came she got to go to a church camp all by herself for a whole week. It was the best week ever. They played game slept in bunk beds. Played pranks read. The bible together and apart sang songs and stayed up late after nights of singing praying and reading. She felt god call her name. She decided she wanted to follow god forever and make a life that pleased god sunburned and tired. The girl went home from camp and wrote postcards to her camp counselors for the rest of the summer. The girl went home. Feeling closer to the bible and god than ever guided her encouraged her and made it easy to spot potential friends. And a few. You shouldn't be friends with to church and the bible helped her find almost all of her friends all the way through school and on into college but it was there away from her home her church and people who looked just like her that she was asked and ask some questions of herself about the bible questions she had never heard before and she didn't have any great answers that felt pretty bad. It felt like suddenly learning that an old friend wasn't who you thought they were but she still tried to live her life to make god happy along the way too now. She met more friends the same way as before but this time they had more questions and answers or ideas to she found little corners and coffee shops to stake out with kind friends. Who didn't look like her at all and try to become reacquainted with her once a distant friend the bible and it was like she came to know her friend better than before after all. It's once we know. Someone's flaws and strengths that we can truly deeply love them so to this day the little girl lives and loves to make happy but if you ask her..

She's pretty she's a pretty fascinating character. And so i do love that she mentioned. I mean we'll talk again when we do but the fact that she she's the one that makes it happen Mike she's she's on. Has isaac the fact that she's the one. That's makes the covenant. Actually that reality. She was the assertive one. Who's like look. We aren't getting any younger. Here's hagar let's try this. Yeah right Even though that was not a great part of the story yeah it's a it's an example of her kind of take charge attitude trying to get this fulfill so do you find more challenging between the two of them probably well in that so i have to share so i've shared that we My husband i had trouble have indicated and after till you had kind of a crisis of faith when we were pursuing treatment. tabah child.

"The story goes in your in the past. Is that you read Talk about the laughter about the importance so of this. Yeah so as you know. Women sometimes get a bad rep from the bible sometime. Yeah yeah and. I have to admit like i forgot. That abraham laughs. I he laughs furnace and i totally like. Oh yeah people always about. Oh sarah she just laughs at that. Can you believe because the angels fussier right. Yeah and i feel. Like abraham just get to pass through abraham path rilot. Yeah he does. And so. I just think gosh It really is his moment. I don't think it's. I don't think it's necessarily at a disrespectful thing. I really think it's like this is so absurd. God are you serious. And i mean i. I've laughed at some things do that. I felt god blessed me with you. Know it's just like. I cannot believe this is my life But it's important that they both did. And i think we need to show that had of the same reaction that sarah did so we need to not be so hard on and you say that that laughter is evidence of unfaithfulness. No no i think it's just like oh my gosh are you serious. It's a total total like the reaction would expect right. Yes so okay. Why is the covenant with abraham relevant for us here in twenty twenty one and god's country in texas. Okay so i know. I i know you like to so you know it's it is relevant because anything about you know we hear we see the word everlasting covenant again like the no story So we've got all these descendants and that goddess no like as this goes on and on and there's more and more distant in your family tree gets bigger and bigger or or. Weren't that family too you know and so. I think it's important for us to say that company that was given so long ago to this man is our covenant to and that's really significant. I think yeah and this is the passage at you read but why are we blessed. I mean we're blessed in order to be a blessing. That's the whole point of the covenant. So is it just so when you say we're part of his family who we are what we just Well i mean that's is. You know lump all people into got people. Yeah are descendants of abraham god saying well. I'm just saying what better term for. I guess i just look. When i think about god saying this is for all that is in god is saying like everyone is a child of of mine and so i kind of think about this is for all kind of like what you refer to. Near noah a little bit as that this covenant for people that about real that was literally for everybody remember walked the earth. So the cabinet abraham's for well who's who's in that group so it jewish people like got people jewish people..

"Yeah he gets more stuff more cat so you get all the livestock houses. It's the biggest example of his rocker. Faith pop so he really. Sarah kind of suggested but he follows through he could. Yeah he could have said no clearly. Yeah matter preserve suggestion. He so he has. You know the the key for this kid come and they don't have and so the the crux of the promise. Yes draft ascendance. Yeah you're right right He has a child with sarah sarah's slave hagar and ishmael so that's the biggest biggest one. Yeah exactly so you say in the sermon that because of the ways that abraham fall short and you do lump in the i you about all of this character flaws kinda wrapped but the ways because of the ways that fall short. You think it's incredible. It got stuck with him. Yeah pushback on that. Isn't that exactly what got does it is but curse i all these stories that are read. It still blows me away. That god is so patient and so committed until faithful to time and time again. And i know this i know. This is central to god's character the nature of god. But i still as a human. I'm just like man out apiece out all right. Never mind so it just it always just blows me away so i don't know so i agree that i mean i mean god called me and you gotta use imperfect people all the time and it's Speak for yourself. Getting scott as our guest i phone a friend scott's her husband i mean you could start with i mean the very first human beings were imperfect and then then looks ends up turning out okay. abraham's obviously imperfect but. Just go through the line and the only the only truly imperfect character in the bible is jesus. Jesus who is the only there are there are all of these flawed human beings. And i think that's the thing about grace and so okay.

"God has this ever expansive love and this commitment to us this covenant and promise to all these descendants for all of time to reach out to people those in exile those on the outside those that mess up those that we think aren't deserving it's pretty radical and that covenant still remains today. We didn't lose it. If anything we see that this covenant continues to expand it becomes greater lastly this covenant was really given before anything happened. Yes god as abram to leave his country which is no small thing but god spoke words of what would happen before. Abram actually followed through with anything with the noah. Last week chris talked about how this covenant was given without condition. there is no long list of laws. Or you need to do this. No or you have to have this. Otherwise i won't give it this covenant. Is grace grace to know. It was grace to abraham really. I love that this promises given before anything really happens and that's often how god works. God promises before we even say yes or do anything to earn it in a world. That says prove to me that you're worthy or do this first before you get anything. It's i dunno. It's a great act of love at degreed active grace. It's pretty incredible. That god doesn't ask us to prove ourselves we're already worthy. It reminds me of one of my favorite lines in our communion liturgy. Christ died for us while we were yet. Sinners that proves god's love towards us even are wondering are straight up abandoning guide or disobedience as covenant was given to us. This great love continues to be here for us. This great covenant still stand. God chooses us. God remembers his covenant. God remembers us. When i think about all this can make you laugh. Makes me laugh because it's absurd. I can't believe it but after this laughter. I hope you and for myself. I hope that we choose to believe it. And that we live in to this covenant that was so freely given to us in the name of the father the son and the holy spirit ahmen..

"Couple one of whom is clergy we have access to these kind of retreats marriage retreats Very meaningful and helpful and so. I think it's probably different for every couple. I don't know there's one size that's all how about jaw We definitely have a well. We both do like counseling by ourselves. But we've always been actually. We've done a few sessions like together. We see the same counselor So that makes it easy because they know all of our stuff and but yeah. I'm i'm very pro therapy counseling and i always tell couples like. Don't go when it will. You wanna go. If it's that definitely go. But it's like preventative like i was encouraged. Like hey you guys might wanna go before you have a baby or there's a move some big life changes going to put some stress on your marriage like go ahead and get some tools so you can Endure whatever that challenge is coming your way better because if you wait too long ten twelve i think the average in my research most couples wait seven years to go see someone which at that point. You're not treating like a scrape your treaty in that arms infected and not niece. Like that's why you should go. And he had like a small scrape algae hunt because not only do we do our. We inclined to insist on our way. We're also terrible about keeping score and so if you're seven years in tall the scorekeeping then it's not just the the fact that you're having a hard time balancing schedules with the new of eight baby. It's that you've got seven years of history that you wanna up every time you're processing a specific problem. Yeah yeah yes like just like you go to a doctor. Maybe once a year or if you're going to the dentist to whatever it is like you should check in like as a couple think that's good practice and i read a lot of marriage books. I love anything. That the got men's john gotten puts out There's there's great resources out there so good and having older along you know mentors that can you can talk to is always so helpful or we agree. Okay all right so what's your big takeaway from this particular wreck. What do you want the congregation to now. I really just wanted my sometimes in a ceremonial have a very specific goal. Like a very specific thing that i wanted to take away. Maybe there's a to do. There's often do or a you know. Here's what's next by next step wherever this. I just wanted to highlight the fact that the bible has something to say about our romantic relationships. And it's an important something to say and it's this whole notion of municipal partners Because i think that's just a very foundational principle for for healthy for those for those who are going to choose to be in relationships..

"Listening you're not supposed to read it here for a single exactly as i do feel like paul gets a little like high on himself like if you could be like me. Because i'm single and i think he gets a little hot on himself. I dunno know or opinion of paul. And i do think i know i don't like anyone in the bible don't like jona don't like pau okay. Let's let's segway. Let's just so. Who are your favorite characters the bombing or other than jesus did not say. Oh gosh i mean. I'm gonna say i love all the ladies. There's a lot of ladies that i appreciate the named ones or the unnamed heroes heroines definitely. Both i mean i really. I really just appreciate a lot of the unnamed people or just two people that have very brief. They just appear very briefly. I guess like minor pitchers. I think about the I heard great things about jesus feeds the five thousand like that. The most important character is the mom that packed the boys lodge that more people that we don't think about iowa's i love to think about those characters are. This is important line of conversation. I think because it's not. It's not going to be surprising that i'm going to resume with the the male figure who has some authority right at surprising. Gosh my favorite characters in the bible. After i feel about jona new testament i i love the complexity of peter's character. Yeah yeah for sure that. He is like so full of of enthusiasm on screws up. You know Crestfallen and then he gets lifted up his emotional roller coaster. That is peter's life. I appreciate that he so human and then you know. Obviously jesus. I mean act. Were and. I'm not being flippant about that. But everything that we ever. Our theology revolves around his teachings in his ministry. And example in incarnation. So on that i should go without saying i i love about paul is that he is what we get to see about paul in real not real time but as his career unfolds is him trying to work through these very complex theological ideas and transition himself and therefore us from Our salvation history pre christ to our salvation history in light of the ministry of christ and his death resurrection. And i think you know that that theological rammer that he lays is so is so foundational for everything that we believe that. He's he's a vitally important person and so his imperfections his you know the places where he misses the mark in my opinion. I'm willing to overlook those because there was so much that he was dealing with you know in his mind was it. He wouldn't.

"I don't think we can talk about that enough. Because when you overlay that. The church has always or at least since the middle ages. Played this kind of strange role where we are. Were agents of the state when it comes to marriage we are. We are the people who solemnize make official Weddings which is really a kind of a. It's kind of contract law really the relationship between a man and woman who who divvied up wide if there's a divorce and all that kind of stuff the fact that we play a role in making wedding's official is is kind of a strange thing and for so long until very recently until until in my lifetime. Legally there were so many. There was such a disparity in power between men and women that were just now as a society in in our generation the previous generation kind of coming out of the contractual built in misogyny paker. Yeah and so. I love the fact that you can read the song of solomon in a wedding and what. Biblically kind of undercuts that disparity between the genders. And what if you didn't if people who didn't listen to this arman the chapter songs psalms chapters and the it's a dialogue between a young man and a young woman and they speak to each other as equal partners She does not defer to him. In fact the high point palm in the one that i read the top of podcast. That's that's from her. And there's a set in the style of ancient poetry there's also versus that are the chorus and verses that are for these young maidens who are who are part of the women's Friendship circle but primarily. It's the conversation between the man and the woman and the fact that they do engage with one another as equal partners subversive. That's the word i've been looking for. It's at this notion that the man in charge. Yeah yeah. I was reading that..

"The people are don't punish people yet. Let's talk about you. were him for say. did you have heller. Yeah i did okay. Cracked me if i'm wrong. Didn't he talk about so the whole scene. Where abraham is supposed to sacrifice isaac that. I feel like dr heller talked about how like abraham could've pushed back and said no. I'm not gonna do that. And so abraham sometimes it was like foolishly obedient. I don't know what his term us would do. You remember yet. And i would say abraham does this throughout their times. Or abraham god's because abraham and abraham's like cool in just acts and then there are times where abraham pushes back so. I don't know we could probably research this. If it's like a developed thing that happens is that when he is going to sacrifice isaac. He doesn't feel confident enough. But then when god is going to destroy sodom and gomorrah abraham speaks up in like don't destroy sodom which is interesting. We could probably read between the lines. I don't know there's probably a lot more Hidden behind that text. Yeah but so. Point is there are people in the bible that pushed back and are not like well. Let's talk about this. God because god is not like okay now. This is my decision for doing this. I don't want to hear from you for sure. God while you've got to be knowing you know all of those attributes that we attribute god also god's mind is changed throughout scripture. God's heart is softened in times especially in the old testament and so those conversations are imperative to who these people are following. God The israelites can talk to god through the prophets through whatever that looks like and the ideas that they have a voice in the matter they may not always get what they want it. Yeah but We see profits. We see characters. Talk in engaging conversation with god so the fact that joanna does it. I'm like what are you thinking. You just like god is there. Were you gonna go. You can't excape. God god's gonna be waiting on the shore. Hey and rate was he just going to hide amongst the non israelite people. Maybe if i don't hang out with the israelites god won't find me like. Wow what's thinking. I wanna know jonas mind. Maybe more than most characters in the bible. Yeah like what was the end game for this. Yeah and he's a prophet. I mean we have a book in our bible about jona like important. It's not like reagan or just sitting. You're hating on joan like there's stuff to learn from this. Yeah but it's frustrating. To be able to know the whole story and see jones mishaps and not have jonah remedy them. Yeah so you talk about in your sermon. Like if if john was was he nervous was he scared or was he just playing lazy. Yeah yeah and we get the answer. Later on. joan actually tells god so god saves the fight. Yeah Spoiler alert and jonas as so. This is why. I didn't wanna come. God because i knew you were grace shifts and you're gonna save these people. Yeah so that's jonas motivation for running at least it's what jonas says was his motivation for running is that..

"The word of the lord came to joan a second time saying get up go to none of that great city and proclaim to what the message that i tell you. John chapter three verses one and two. Hey everybody i'm chris down and i am reagan gillan and this is off. Script the podcast. Where every week. We take a deeper dive on last sunday sermon. Talk about the theology behind it and get a chance to talk about. Anything ended up on the cutting room floor. And we're wrapping up our little mini series on joan today. Yeah so as quick to week but it was really good hot sports opinions. Yes mostly from you. The no it was fun. I think we both had a lot of fun with these two sermons. I could tell we had agree it stephanie. To and you're going to do a bonus podcast with stephanie. Also i am because y'all both breached week one And so that'd be good. Yeah okay so let's talk about Jonas so you say that he wasn't really a prophet or called a profit So what would the normal signs of who a prophet was. What do they have to have certain. You know what had to be on their resume in order to be a prophet. I guess well so. I mean jonas case. It's the not sure that it's not. It's not that he wasn't a prophet. It's that he because he ends up doing a prophetic thing. We got calls him and he goes. Well ends up going It's that there's not the traditional the beginning of a book of the prophet typically. What you get is a call story like a long call story. And there's in many cases kind of a formula so far god calls or at least the prophet declares their credentials or talks about how they are responding to what god wants to do And then of course the books just and you talked about this last week. Those books work very different than than jonah. I mean this is a satirical short story. Yeah so joan. Ends up doing a prophetic thing. And he is in the book of the prophets but he's not in any way traditional profit. Okay so did profits have to be like a priest or anything or was normal people. That's a good question. I think most of the time they're normal people just regular people. Yeah there are a couple of priests who become prophets. Maya zeki will. I is there. Yeah but then the minor prophets her just oftentimes country boys who are mad at the city. Poke sometimes worse. That god will call you to be a prophet. Do not think that god calls us to be prophets. Well i think he. I think god does for sure but like why don't you just love okay. All right chris. You're going to go and you just go at him anything. that'd be fun. I don't think that'd be fun. So interestingly there's do you. Are you a global fan. Revisions have yeah. It's been a while the yes. So the author malcolm cab. Well has written several very compelling books and he's got a podcast series called revisionist history and early in season one..

"Are changed. This reminds me of the sailors from the first part of joe last week. They were of different cultures. They were of different beliefs and still they felt they understood the magnificence of god working. The sailors were the ones who took time to pray and cry out to jones. God even when joe wouldn't even when jonah was running here the city of niniveh. Here's jonah kind of doing the bare minimum of sharing this message from god and they immediately repair hint. This is part of the reason. I find the book of jonah and even its inclusion in the old testament to be so interesting. Jona jones had the hebrew. The profit jona the guy who guide decides to talk to. He's the one who only engages with god when he's trapped in the belly of fish he is the one who doesn't seem to have compassion for the other people on the ship or for the people of niniveh we don't see jona have a heart for others. We don't really even see. Joan have a heart for god yet. Those people those outside of the day or the ones in this story who are consistently softening their hearts and making space for god to work in their lives the next few verses of chapter three demonstrate this. let's read verses six through nine. When word of it reached the king of niniveh. He got up from his throne stripped himself of his robe covered himself with morning clothes and sat in ashes then he announced in all of niniveh by decree of the king and his officials neither human nor animal cat old nor flock will taste anything no grazing and no drinking water. Let humans and animals alike put on morning clothes and let them call upon god forcefully and let all person stop there evil behavior in the violence. That's under their control. And then the king thought to himself. Who knows god may see this intern from his rat so that we might not perish. All of niniveh from the mightiest person the king to even all the animals they decide to have a fast they repent they sit in morning in ashes. They give up their luxurious lifestyles and their lifestyles of violence. Just in the hopes that god might forgive them. This is the power of god that we see throughout the book of jonah. God still works even win. Jones thinks he knows best jonet thinks it's best to run away from god. Then jones thinks it's best to give a short message to only part of the city of niniveh and then leave. Joan is driven by this type of selfishness and he can't seem to find compassion for other people. I think. I hate on jona so much because i see myself in jones. Maybe some of you can relate to this to there are times where it seems easier to run away then to face hard things had on. It's also sometimes really difficult for me personally to put myself in someone else's shoes to find true compassion for people. I'm really quick to judge instill. Jonas story doesn't end here with an innovative repentance. Get a whole fourth chapter of the book of jonah. Hear these words from jona. Three ten through four three. God saw what they were doing. So i'd takes notice of the innovates repenting that they had ceased their evil behavior so god stopped planning to destroy them. And god didn't do it. But joanna thought this was utterly wrong and jona became angry. Jonah pray to the lord come on lord was wasn't this precisely my point when i was back in my own land. This is why. I fled to tarshish earlier. I know that you are merciful and compassionate guide very patient full of faithful love and willing not to destroy at this point. Lord you may as well take my life from me because it would be better for me to die than to live jonet engages in another conversation with god. This is the second time in the entire book we see jonas speak to god and here is where we finally get. The big reveal here is where jonas tells us why he didn't want to go to niniveh in the first place in joan doesn't name fear or laziness or any other things we might have thought of instead. Jonas says the reason he didn't want to go to niniveh is because he knew god was compassionate. And that god might forgive the people. Jonah on the other hand believes the innovates should be punished that they should be overthrown and he's angered that god is merciful to them. Jona believes that he knows. God he knows god's nature and that it would be better to run away from niniveh than to go and spread the message because he knows god's to compassionate god's to compassionate to pass judgment on these people have a few thoughts about this first off the throughout the old testament believe it or not guide does destroy entire nations. So i'm not really sure why jonas so convinced that god would never destroy the ninna bites. It's not as farfetched as it seems. Also god has just forgiven jona for running away. God has saved jones life after being thrown off a boat into the sea yet. Here jono wants god to withhold forgiveness even though he himself as you just received forgiveness from god. It's probably not the first time. God's forgiven jona either.

"No good news no promise of any hope just a promise of destruction no explanation of why they're being destroyed no instructions to them about how to avoid it. He didn't even try to go to the king. He just walks out into the street and issues this terse grumpy threat and only says it wants you got forty days. None of now. This too is satirical. Because if you've ever read any other book of any other profit you know that brevity is not their spiritual gift. They don't say anything and eight words there preachers after all it takes them four words to announce that they're about to say something thus says the lord that's what they're constantly announcing just just they they say words before they even begin to say anything else. But here jonah. The prophet whose first instinct is to flee from god. The prophet whose vocation is supposed to be preaching can only muster eight words for an assignment that he clearly detests as a young officer in the navy. I thought i knew everything that is one of the curses of being young sometimes and i certainly thought that i knew how to do my job better than my boss did or at least that was my attitude. Most of the time. My first boss in the navy was great. He was smart. He was really good at his job. He had been an admiral's chief of staff just before he got orders to our ship. Which is a very big deal. He and i ended up becoming great friends and he taught me a lot about leadership and management from time to time like all bosses. He would micromanage me or give me an assignment that i that i didn't want to do and i'd pull the jona on him when he did that now. I'm not talking the chapter one running away jona because a little like god the navy will eventually find you and running away from the navy. Get you thrown in. The brig wasn't going to do that instead when my boss told me. Something told me to do something that i did not want to do. I'd pull chapter three jona on him. Doing the absolute bare minimum. Exactly the way. He told me with not a bit more effort or thought and he had a great phrase for this kind of behavior which he immediately recognized assuming because he had done the same thing once himself. It's also the type of thing that joanna does in chapter three of our story. He called it malicious obedience. The humor that irony the satire of chapter three of jonas story as that his malicious obedience his grumpy eight word oracle yelled out a single time in the middle of the city. Well it succeeds spectacularly..

"Thank you to meredith and the team. That was an amazing little two part series. Superfund a to so. We are so thankful for their hard work on that i also neglected to mention earlier. If you're worshiping with us online we encourage you to get elements so that you may partake in holy communion with us so some bread some juice just so you have those as we. Enter into a time communion a little later in the service. I give you permission to leave during the sermon together. Those maybe just turn the volume up before we begin this morning. We'll you pray with me. God made the words of my mouth and the meditations of all of our hearts gathered. Be pleasing to you. Our rock and our redeemer aman today. We are finishing up our sermon series on the book of jona. If you missed the first part of jona last week no worries. You can rewatch the sermon if you're super into it. That sermon is found on facebook on her youtube page. You can also listen to the center. Our podcast anywhere. You can listen to podcast and just for a quick summary. So we're all on the same page this morning. We talked last week about what it looks like when we run away in our own lives and how even when we run away. God can still work in our mistakes. Joanna straight up runs in the opposite direction of where god called him to go. And joanna doesn't even try to talk to god about his problems with the call he just immediately bales and as jona ran. Jonas found himself as the outsider. He was with people on a boat who had different beliefs than him and they were headed to a city full of more people who had different beliefs then the storm came while joan and the sailors are on the boat and jonas said that it was totally his fault in the sailor ship. Throw him overboard and the sailors didn't want to do that because they felt weird about throwing someone off a boat which agreed that would be a weird thing to do but they didn't have another option so they ended up throwing jona over it but these men had such a powerful experience of jonas. God they solve the power of god that they actually left their gods and began worshiping jonas guide which is amazing and it speaks to this fact that god can work in our lives even when we make mistakes then of course when jonas thrown over god since this giant fish to swallow jona like it happens and for the first time and the entire book of jonah in the second chapter we hear jona pray to god for the first time jones has a conversation with god we end with an. I am quoting scripture here. Joanna is being vomited vomited onto dry. Land okay cool. I gave last week's sermon in like five minutes. You're all welcome for that. Sorry about last week said that today we are going to continue with jonas saga and you may be sitting there wondering wait a minute. Didn't you just give us jonasson. Tire story right. Joan get swallowed by fish. Then joanna decides that he will follow god's call on his life and he goes to about right and of story but actually there's a lot more to jonas story than just that part. I'm telling you y'all are children's story. Bibles they really mislead us in this. Maybe part of the problem is with us. Maybe we're really interested in a giant fish swallowing a man and we don't always hear the rest of jonas story but i argue. Jonas story is just getting started as we start three of joanna this morning in just the very first verse we see clear symmetry from the very first verse in the entire book of jonah. I'll show you what i mean. Let's get john three verse. One so has just been vomited onto dry land. How many times can i say vomit. The sermon keep count. Here's what scripture says. The lord's word came to joanna. Second time get up and go to niniveh that great city in declare against it the proclamation that i am commanding you. It's the same or a pretty similar. Call that god gives jona joan one one. We have a side by side. Journal one one. The lord's word came to joe. Nagbe get up go to ninna the great city cry out against it so once again jonah gets a call to go to niniveh and this time instead of fleeing joanna got up and went to niniveh. According to the lord's word the same message in a different response this is definitely a step in the right direction for our profit for jona. He's going to finally follow through with his calling from god and then jona does a typical jona type of thing. We read just now. That is a big place right. Three days walk across but joan only gives his message to the ninna bites on his first day in the city. Here's what verse four says. Jonas started into the city walking one day and he cried out just forty days more and then we'll be overthrown. That's it in seen. Joanna does what he's asked of. He tells the people that god is taken notice of their evilness. Well sword of jonas says i think eight words he says in forty days your city. Oh be overthrown. Kind of vague about what's going to happen. He doesn't really even tell them that. It's god who's going to overthrow the city. My interpretation of this passage of scripture is that joanna decides to do the bare minimum of his calling. Yeah he still gives this message that he's been charged to give but he doesn't seem to be doing in particularly loving way or even in a very informative way jonas kind of basic with what he shares and. Maybe jonas scared to tell them more details. Maybe joan doesn't really see a point in giving them more information if they're just going to be overthrown anyway we don't really know what's going on in jonas head but even though i would say jona does the bare minimum here joan. It gets huge results with his message. Let's continue on with the fifth verse and the people have believed to guide. They proclaimed a fast and put on morning clothes from the greatest of them to the least significant jonas gibbs eight words and the people hints the people's hearts.

"And jona doesn't help with anything. He's withholding from the niniveh. It doesn't want to go proclaim the word. And he also withholding help from the sailors. I feel so bad for the steelers. Were trying everything because they feel like. It's therefore maybe they angered one of their gods so think what can we do. What what can we do. And so then they cast lots which was a way to determine the divine will will until. Let's pick up in verse eight. Then they said to him to. Joanna tells why this calamity has come upon us. What is your occupation. Where do you come from. What is your country and of what people are you. I'm a hebrew. he replied. I worship the lord. The god of heaven who made the c in the dry land. Can you picture this. When joan fess up to who he is and he mentioned that well my god is the lord who made the c. Do you think the sailors were like. Did you think you wanted to maybe talk to your god about maybe solving this situation. We're in right now. These sailors who are fearful probably have a little bit of anger for this fugitive. Half that has put their lives and such danger again. These what we would call. Non believers goto jones. Say what is it that you have done. They know that jones is trying to flee from the lord and that you don't do that when god puts a call upon your life they know when you get a call you follow through you do what is asked and so. They're very dumbstruck. At why jones is on their ship right now. Sailors ask in verse. Eleven what. They should do to joanna. The is not settling. it's getting worse and worse by every moment there's no break into the sailors. Fear is only growing and again. They've done all the can. They're out of ideas. They think maybe if we get to land can put john on on dry land can go on his way to fulfill this call. But it's not happening. So jona says the unthinkable. He suggests that they throw him overboard. Keep in mind. He doesn't offer to jump himself. He wants to sailors to do it for him. So let's play everything that we've we've seen so far. He tried to run away from god. He tried to sleep away from god and now he figures. Well let me just die. So that i can really get away from god and let's be clear. He isn't choosing to be thrown overboard in order to to save the sailors to care for them. He doesn't care at all about him. it's all about him not having to follow through on the call. It's all about him. Not having to do what god has asked him to do. And the enormous burden he puts on the sailors.

We're talking about club that regardless of the name of the manager regardless of the cv yelich or experience or whatever it may be when you lose so many games You don't get a chance to to get back your way.

It's going to be difficult for him so when you are in difficult times. I would've thought. I would shut him a little bit loyalty and more only little bit patients and if it didn't work out in a month salmon chelsea was still in his position then tell them to stop in time and just seems a little bit off. What was it. What was the last straw. Well not not the luton game because they wanted strange when you suck someone to win we even. If it's in the autumn of to hold up in the league for example. I think he's an accumulation of things like the boys of said. The results haven't been good enough. He's the manager of the abramovich era with the lowest point tally per game again which is just not good enough. It's not good enough the performances that they've put the way they played no identity and we at the end of january. Now no patterns of plano star. There's nothing you can see really in the game. They played too many defeats sunday in the last six weeks and i think he also pays the difficult relationship behind with marina. Grownups difficult relationship that he had some of the dressing room. Certainly the fight. That tim of hobbies have failed so far to establish themselves in. That team is also on him. He can argue that he wanted can ride. I didn't think the team was balanced. He needed a bit more time. Whatever excuses he can come up with. I think overall is just not good enough and and we've seen in the past sake managers who've won great things like marino konchalovsky and keeping some like sorry like to finish the season and finished with with with a trophy as well for he must have.

Chronic Disengagement - Changing the World for the Better

"About education So no judge is is is is a breath of fresh air really for everyone who is vaguely or deeply concerned With young children and young people whether the five ten fifteen twenty five who've become do fractured away from the education. Second situa- that it's developed into a thing that chronic so we look in children have become long-term disengagement the education system not just the sector but the system that is an incredibly rich system for children so much growing takes place in an education is also this movement of fresh air for everyone but it's a movement of like minded professionals who believe in the power of conductivity and that we should be professionally approximately set of professionally distance from those guys. So for example. I was not long ago on a very permanent city. In the midland's An assault with his family in the middle of this particular neighborhood I can see a tree. I didn't say grass. I walked into the house. Does were that mocks of people punching it assault and the smell was wasn't so welcoming to my particular perspective what a soul was complete broken So that's what we call professional proximity we sit with it with smell it with. We live with it. We create that empathy -education where we can. We can try as much as we can. As much as we were able to. Rio moved. incon- eight without particular thing and from that particular grassroots point. Using whatever it is that we do the technicalities which everybody's jonah anyway. Things like sessions blondes. But he stopped particular emphasis on. We've got to embrace it as as our own. it's all very well being saudi. Now kind of nice clean education offices or whatever it is but it's for notification is is. It's all about bhavan the people out there. Where amasses creating that connective conductivity with young people and their families and then the professional proximity to the den gives gives us an indication that what it is that will take for repair every so often often what he takes us a really kind hearts open mind aunt And a comfortable shoulder. Really official in plano so Yes breath of fresh air which also a movement of like minded professionals from the these as from from from this sometimes over this coach for all the way through to the south coast catch to brighton to cluster to you know so and everywhere else in between is fascinating and it is taking shape. It's it's it's running it's rainy. It's running wild all we need to do is to run with it. control it. So i'd said how long has not been in existence diego. Give us a sense of this cut. So i started no jr education out of particular frustration with the way that we will look in after the most vulnerable. So let me rephrase it. I i starts notification about five years ago and i was a single practitioner. Those make and i saw that. I had a bit of a knack to engaging with those couldn't necessarily engage with anybody else. I didn't know what it was about my practice. That was effective. Now do with help of others. We've unpack no just my just but what it is about the informed my practice it previous experiences and so when offered our networks this boy and middlesbrough five years ago. It's called him. Bob for now. And bob was was was described. Ferrell on and nobody can engage in from thirteen minutes before he is potentially dangerous to suffer this He before he got the had previously harmed quite substantially in animal pet from the Foster parents that lived with the poor dog at his is one of his legs amputated. Is we re all tall environment. So when you when you met with our kind of description you expect that kind of behavior you don't you had to put myself in any shoes and thinking. actually what's the story. The story daddy's boy who observed high levels of violence at home from from day one. It was the only child three. Who's taken out of was taken into care it'd been three different guy placements Exposed to all kinds of caribbean sexual events. Aunt child that needs to be to us to have to fight his sister for a biscuit which was a form of entertainment for darden and as friends towards the two of them fight. Anyway i saw. That isn't so the boy whose federal and nobody can engage with us. That's not the boy that i'm thinking about.

What is The Allegory Of The Cave?

"Is stephanie. And this is talk tales and trivia the show where i talk about society culture pop culture and i throw in a little bit of trivia too so that you can stump your family and friends. It is so much fun listen here. I am mad researcher. When it comes to all those topics i research and the trivia that i give you because i want you to be enlightened and have trivia so that you can stump your family and friends and look really really cool while doing it so that is my goal and i love doing it for you if you are a first time listener here at talk tales and trivia. Thank you so much for tuning in. And i welcome you and i hope that you enjoy this episode. Sit back relax. Listen and enjoy as i tell you the allegory of the cave but first let's discuss something. What is an allegory. Well i know that you know you're smart. You're probably the smartest people. I know. But i just wanted to do this because i had to look it up to make sure i was right. It is a tale that has a moral of the story ending a tale that symbolizes something or has a deeper meaning than just the story itself. It represents something that is different than the story itself and that is exactly what this is all about well. The allegory of the cave was written by plato and the nine hundred ninety nine movie matrix. The question is asked what is real. Unfortunately no one can be told. What the matrix is you have to see it for yourself. I have a real example. An allegory written by the greek philosopher. Plato plato lived from around four hundred and twenty three b c to around three hundred and forty eight bc. He believed learning. Philosophy is to make you live and die well in other words. Therapy for the soul is philosophy without further ado here. I go with the allegory of the cave by plato. Plato wrote it to show the effect of education or the lack of it. The allegory was part of his book. Republic the story goes like this. The cave has prisoners. That have always lived there away from the outside world. There is no natural light and the walls are damp and dark anything. These prisoners can see comes from the shadows of things thrown up on a wall by the light of the fire. The cave prisoners get fascinated by these reflections of animals plants. People and other objects they assume these shadows are real. And if you understand them you will excel and exceed in life. That is what they believe. One day one of the cave prisoners is freed and realize when released from the shackles and the cave that these objects are real and not just mere shadows put up on the wall on the outside world away from the cave. He sees color and beautiful animals. Flowers trees stars people freely going about their business. He sees a son and all the other objects at makeup disclosure world. We live in the freed cave prisoner saw with his own eyes. What was reality. And it wasn't the shadows in the cave. This indeed made him very excited previously. He had been looking merely at phantoms images really now. He is nearer to the true nature of being. The freight prisoner wants to share what he has discovered with the remaining slaves. That are still in the darkness of the cave as he goes into the cave. The darkness is too much and he has a difficult time seeing. He stumbles about an almost appears blind. He then tells the remaining prisoners. What was outside of the cave. The sun the beauty the color etc etc. He tells them all the things that he saw and how wonderful it all was but the prisoners don't believe him and get very angry at the freedman and plot to kill him. They tell him he's crazy and violently resist while he tries to free them. The prisoners don't want to be told they don't know the truth but why it's human nature to believe what we have always believed no doubt from influences from our youth and the influences. When we're in vulnerable situations and the cave signifies ignorance. The prisoners are representing humans before philosophy before reasoning. The sun is the light of reason and the alienated of the returning prisoner. Is what all truth. Tellers can expect when taking the knowledge back to nonbelievers or the unenlightened. Those that have not devoted themselves to thinking investigating and becoming more knowledgeable. There are prisoners or unenlightened. People in our world right now. That perhaps don't want to know the truth. That is right in front of them. Plato believes we're all perhaps in the shadows for most of our lives and these shadows are in fact only images projected by our society and culture playing on the walls of our fragile and flawed mines. Individually it's not our fault no one chooses to be in the cave but that's just where we happen to begin. We are all starting from a very difficult place. But here's the thing. If you bluntly tell people they are wrong you get nowhere causing deep offense and you may cause danger to your own life right from the majestic therapy website. There's this plato's analogy plato. Introduces this passage as an analogy of what it is like to be a philosopher trying to educate society people are comfortable and their ignorance and hostile to anyone who tries to free them from it. The prisoners plotted and killed the one who escaped and went back to help them. Just like the athenians sentence. Socrates to death for trying to enlighten them. This is an allegory of the life of an enlightened and wise people who get rejected by ignorance when they tried to enlighten others for plato. Most of us live like the prisoners in the cave. The masses are stubborn and ignorant and dedicate their lives to pursue shadows images instead of the real thing. The shadows can be interpreted as status or wealth among other things as opposed to wisdom and knowledge. So what then is a solution to this problem to prevent this try. Very socratic method. Well again from the majestic therapy website. There's this the socratic method. It is not our fault to be in the caves. We all begin their the system makes sure of that from an early age. We take everything. The environment teachers parents say to us as absolute when we have questions too complicated for adults to answer. They encourage us to stop asking questions therefore killing our curiosity. You know it's true and it is because everyone believes that we are all genuine and true people. We are taken in by that thought at a young age for some philosophers. Ignorance is a sin and plato wanted to eradicate ignorance. But you can't just go around telling people they are wrong. Like in plano story. They will get offended and probably become very hostile toward you. So you don't want that for plato. The solution to this problem was to educate society carefully and philosophically. He thought the best way to do. This was a socratic method. This is a very subtle process. You don't force people to think read some books or lecture them on any particular topic you educate people without them realizing it. Plato believed that people could detect the errors in their reasoning with a little bit of help. You just need to give them a small clue a push if you will so. They realize where they are wrong. You can't teach anyone anything by making them feel stupid. Remember that according to plato. We all start in the same cave but we have a way out and that is through philosophy. The socratic method is a form of cooperative argumentative dialogue between individuals based on asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking and to draw out ideas and underlying beliefs. It's kinda like a mastermind. It's a very calming and gentle process with the socratic method. The teacher does not aim to force knowledge to the students. He acts as a mediator while having a dialogue with the objective that the student thanks for themselves. While the teacher facilitates the discussion.

Why White evangelical support for Trump goes beyond his policies

"Faster in front in front of the presidents who is also its virtue. Advisor to presidents and big supporter of them is Dr Robert Jeffress. He may very well be tomorrow night in the White House with the president in their war room, watching election night coverage or wherever they're going to be. A Z was four years ago. Let's continue to our discussion with on our pre election night coverage with Dr Robert Jeffress. Dr Jeffers, Thank you for continuing to step. Stay with me for a little bit longer tonight. Appreciate that. Great to be with you. Tell me this. I gotta lots. Lots of things I want Teo continue to ask you about one of things. I want to ask you. Why should Christians vote? You know, Chris of theologian, Pastor Jon Piper wrote of s a couple of weeks ago. That's gotten a lot of notoriety and basically, he said. Yeah, Biden's guilty of being pro abortion. But Trump is arrogant and being pro abortion and arrogant are both deadly sins. So he's not voting for either one of them and went on to suggest that, you know, staying home and not voting is an option for Christians because nothing in the Bible that mandates that we vote. Well, I mean the arguments absurd. I mean, yes, Arrogance is bad. It's a sand but 40 million People haven't died because of Erica sounds like they have from abortion, the most marginalized group in ours. Society, the unborn, But beyond that, the fact is, we are, I think, mandated to vote and be sure it's true. You don't find voting in the Bible In biblical times, you didn't vote for emperors or rulers. They and their policies were imposed on you. But, you know, John J. The first chief justice of our Supreme Court, said. God has given us the privilege of choosing our leaders. And when you think about it, Chris, that's an amazing thing. We get to choose our leaders. Our leaders choose the policies we live under and buy. Policies. They choose whether we're headed in the direction of righteousness or un righteousness, and if we're really Christian, gentle, Jesus said. Love your neighbour as yourself. We ought to be concerned about the policies not only that we live under, but the policies that others have to live under. We also seek policies and labors that will do the most good or at least the least amount of harm. And that's why people auto, though we have the power to determine the direction of our country bar vote. Dr Jeffers. What has the president done from your perspective? And what will he do if given another four years from a perspective as a in evangelical leader? I'll slash citizen of the country. Well, first of all, you know, evangelicals are Americans, So I mean, we all have some common interest. We're interested in the economy east. I mean, evangelicals like to eat, just like anybody else. We liketo have money that we can give. And so we care about the economy. We care about the national defense, and I think this president has a tremendous record with the economy is well is securing the protection of our nation. But of course, the things evangelicals are best known for carrying about Didn't pardon me or the sanctity of life. Nobody's been more pro life than this president. Yes, we care about the religious liberty. I mean, he cares about religious liberty, not just Americans, but for the entire world. He was the first president. You don't barred me tohave a symposium at the United Nations on religious persecution I attended. It was just unbelievable. And then what he's done with the judiciary. 200 conservative federal judges confirmed with Lifetime appointments. Three now conservative Supreme Court justices. I mean, Chris President Trump has delivered like no other Republican president. The history when it comes to the specific issues. You know what else I was reading Dr Jefferson. The weekend was remind me of one of my friends. Shane Prude who you know whose always speaks in our church is a friend of mine lover man and he's a friend of yours. He came on once until the White House regularly and I read about this and I go. I know someone who is part of this regularly invites. And this doesn't get publicized evangelical leaders young like Shane, and more seasons will say it nicely, right? Very you and other great leaders in the area like Dr Gramm it Ah, in Plano. Etcetera. But, um, e. And behind the scenes invites them listens to them. Ask them what they need. And what their concerns are. Have you ever seen this before? Obscenity of the last four years? I mean, no other president has done this. I mean, I know I have friends that worked at the White House. They worked under Bush, both bushes. They worked out there under Reagan. They said Never has this White House been is open, not just the evangelicals, but people of all faiths. I think the last thing I saw was like 5000 faithful years have been to the White House in the last four years, and he's just unbelievable. Unbelievable. You're one last thing here. Dr Jeffers for let's go and let's get some rest for possible travel to the White House again tomorrow. Your prediction, which whatever you do, maybe you don't want to do it at all. It's find me but just as a personal thing that your prediction and which states do you think are in the bag for trump or or or wants to be concerned, But just from your personal of Thoughts. You know, I'm going to leave that to the pundit. I'm just going to leave it a political expert you I just think it's hard to say I will tell you you have been in communication recently with the senior campaign officials. They feel good about Texas and so well that we'll see if that is well founded, but that some people thought they ought to come to Texas. But they felt like yeah, it will be good, but Let me just say this, Chris in closing. If you're a Christian, a person of faith you need to pray like this entire election depends upon God. But you need to go out and vote tomorrow. If you haven't as if this entire election depends upon you. There you go. And there's there's ah, the Houthi pastor up in D. C. Who, Ah, price praying circles. He's Ah, Forget his name now, Diego Mark Patterson wrote. I read his book, and he talks about his prey like a depends on God and and work like a depends Son used to do both. And that's exactly what you summed up right there. I could not agree with you more. I know the Battersea degrees DEA and Dr Robert Jeffress. Thank you very much. Look forward to your next instalment on the courageous Siri's thatyou're doing, which is fantastic. Check him out at first Dallas dot org's watch online all over the world. Dr. Jeffers, Thank you for coming on tonight.

Sigma Prime with Mehdi Zerouali

"Hey everyone my name's Matty I'm a CO founder and director of Sigma Prime We are an information security consultancy mostly based out of Australia being hiring a bunch of people all over the world lately. We've been around for about full years providing security assessment services to a lot of blockchain projects working. Almost exclusively lately on. Iridium. Providing security assessment on smart contracts on a lot of protocol. Layer developments. And I guess we are here to talk about Easter 'cause we are also the founders and maintainers of light hops arrest implementation of the. Two point plano specification thanks for having. A real quick. What would you say the? Technical advantage or differentiator lighthouse has over other there to. Invitations. a question question it. We that quite often we because of of the the company we're in information security consultancy we take security very seriously. We'd like to think that we've incorporated security into our development lifecycle very early on. So would like to think that our clients is probably one of the hopefully safest was secure clients out there it's written in Ross Ross is particularly fast. So the focus has also been on the fullness speeds and as I mentioned security So that's probably what differentiates from the rest of the other teams. Get a moment to pitch chill out to private the process of lighthouses. Good nells offended A. that. The approach here is the kind of. Break down the concept of theorem to what's going on and what users can expect so. I'm not exactly sure how I want to do this the the conversations going to naturally evolve I think but like if you had to give the. Highest of high. Level overviews of the transition from ethylene S to. Or just say. Okay. Let's have this. So, F one is the proof of work chain that we all love us and as you all probably know, the plan was always to transition to approve of stay consensus mechanism. So namely. Casper, if g so the research team has been working on this. If your foundation research you had been working on this for the past four, five, six years and mentors have been developing the. Specification, turning it into actual usable software. For the past two and a half years. The main difference as mentioned is the consensus mechanism. So moving away from proof of work, which is a quite a west full way of coming to consensus if you ask me. I know this can be quite polarizing community, but this is basically how Paul my co founder got started on Lighthouse I think ethereal currently uses as much electricity as Costa. Rica, if I'm not mistaken. And we think sigma prime. That is so. Much. Better ways of coming to consensus. And kost perfect is one of them. So super excited about the environmental impact of the transition from steak and this transition will happen gradually. we'll be shipping if to in various phases. So phase zero is the first phase that will be introduced hopefully a few weeks I a couple months. The latest set ladies year is what we're aiming for. and. This introduces consensus change. Right is introduces the proof of stake consensus mechanism Gasparilla Gene, and we essentially call these chain, the beacon chain, and you can see as this orchestrate. That gives the pulse of the network to Valley daters, giving them tasks, rewarding them when they do their job correctly. Penalizing them when they don't etc, etc.. That's phase zero. That's what I guess. All client teams are working on at the moment and. Phase One will hopefully come shortly up and phase one introduces shards, the concept of shod. So Ethier two point Oh will be shotted blockchain meaning that will have. Sixty four sub block changing see them as sort of independent blockchain's that are all linked and tides with each other through five that consensus mechanism in the beacon. Check. So. Once we have that will be effectively using those shards just as dot availability layers we won't. Have State transitions or users of smart contracts or transactions as we are all familiar with in if one that will come in light up so talks about phase one point five, which hopefully will. Get one into each to and have that as a separate dedicated shot. In face to. Will introduce I, guess proper state execution and smart contracts, and this is when will actually have a blockchain usable blockchain developers as we all relative with them when you hear him on. That makes sense.

The University of Utah, Jack Daniel's Whiskey, and Carnival Cruise Lines Hit in Ransomware Attacks

"Do the University of UTAH? Jack. Daniels. Whiskey. And Carnival cruise lines all have in common. Well Friday last last Friday. The University of Utah revealed that it had paid a ransomware gang four, hundred and fifty seven dollars. And fifty nine cents. Four, hundred, Fifty, seven, thousand. Yes I got that would have been. Four hundred and fifty, seven, thousand dollars and fifty, nine, hundred, and fifty thousand. Fifty nine dollars. which sort of begs the question or they get that number? Now that I finally got it out correctly, it's probably bitcoin. Nine dollars like half a million bucks. It's like the Bitcoin version thing they probably would. Yes somewhere. BITCOIN that turned out to be that. And what's interesting is that was not to obtain the decryption key for their files. They didn't need it because it turns out that very few of their files were encrypted but rather her and Leo I know this goes to you know the thing that were you just kind of like. Grit your teeth to purchase the promise. From the extortionists. That the student information that had been exfiltrated beforehand while. Yeah that's not be publicly released your Seymour. One this is big. Yeah. Yeah. They're they're they're just they're hoping that the there is honor among thieves and that these guys will keep their word in senators. Word is that if if you want others to pay you yes. That's it. Exactly. If, of course, ransomware gangs or not all the same but and didn't we hear no, it wasn't It was cannon that had some information leaked last week that we reported on and so so Lawrence over at bleeping computer has said that you know they assumed since the jetsons cannon got themselves back up relatively quickly that they had paid the ransom. But now since the extortionists in that instance were leaking the information, maybe cannon had restored from backups and said, Nah, we're not paying your stinking ransom and the bad guy said. Here comes your You know your your private corporate next decade plans for the future. How do you? How do you want that? How how do you feel about that being leaked? Anyway. So the in this case University of Utah explained. That it had dodged a major ransomware incident and that the attackers managed to encrypt only zero point zero, two percent. Of the data stored on their servers. And the university staff was easily able to restore that from backups. However, the ransomware group then threatened to release student related data see they had obtained and exfiltrated. So, the university said after careful consideration, the university decided to work with its cyber insurance provider to pay a fee to the ransomware attacker. This was done as a proactive and preventative steps to ensure information was not released on the Internet and again to the extent that such. Can Be ensured. The Cyber Insurance policy pay part of the ransom, and the university covered the remainder no tuition grant donation state or tax payer funds were used to pay the ransom thought that was an interesting explicit statement that they made. They said, the university disclosed that the attack took place a little over a month ago on July nineteenth twenty twenty and the network belonging to the Collar College of social and behavioral science was the victim. So Apparently A. A you know as a sub set of the. Entire Larger University. was where the break in occurred and there must have been some isolation there. So anyway, that is one of the three and presumably they were able to negotiate a cheaper payment in order to you know because they hit the bad guys hadn't managed to get. The bulk of the of the university stuff. But you know they did pay for they promised to not share student data, and as you said Leo, the reason that would be honored as well as you know, nearly half a million dollars. And they want to do. Yeah exactly. You got to build your credibility. Exactly And two other large and notable recent ransomware victims were Brown forman famous for their distillation of Jack Daniel's Tennessee whiskey. And Carnival cruises. The Jack Daniels folks said are quick actions upon discovering the attack prevented our systems from being encrypted. Unfortunately again, we believe some information including employee data was impacted. We are working closely with law enforcement as well as world class third party data security experts to mitigate and resolve this situation. As soon as possible, there are no active negotiations so. In that. So that says it sorta sounds like. Oh, in fact, a that statement from Brown forman came after Bloomberg News reported that it had received an anonymous tip of the ransomware attack a site on the dark web claiming to be run by members of the reveal strain. A ransomware says that it had obtained a terabyte of data from the Louisville Kentucky based. Brown. Foreman the site said that stolen data included contracts financial. Statements Credit Histories and internal correspondence of employees also included were screen shots of file structures documents purportedly taken during the heist. So does look like the pattern we're seeing now is because you know major companies that have the deep pockets who also have the pocket depth to now proactively backup their servers well. So it's possible for the for if if the only thing done was encryption. A golden opportunity to extract a ransom could be thwarted if the if the good guys have backups at. So now what's being done is That data pre encryption is being exfiltrated and stored somewhere. Then the data is encrypted and so we have you know we're we're we're increasingly seeing this two part attack exfiltration that the company desperately does not want to be made public. In case they have backups in which case, they would not otherwise need to pay the extortion. So you know it's not really ransomware as much as it is. Okay. We got copies of all your stuff. Shall we share it with the world? PLANO blackmail.
