How to Plead for Unbelievers
"Brothers. My heart's desire and prayer to god for them is that they may be saved. Rome's ten one. Paul prays that god would convert israel. He praised for her salvation. He does not pray for ineffectual. Influences but for effectual influences and that is how we should pray to. We should take the new covenant promises of god and plead with god to bring them to pass in our children and our neighbors and on all the mission fields of the world. God take out of their flesh the heart of stone and give them a new heart of flesh ezekiel eleven nineteen god circumcised their heart so that they love you deuteronomy thirty six father put your spirit within them and caused them to walk in. Your statutes ezekiel thirty. Six twenty seven grantham repentance and a knowledge of the truth that they may escape from the snare of the devil. Second timothy two twenty five and twenty six open their hearts so that they may believe the gospel ecksteen fourteen when we believe in the sovereignty of in the right and power of god to elect. And then bring hardened sinners to faith and salvation. Then we will be able to pray with no inconsistency and with the confidence of great biblical promises for the conversion of the lost. Thus god has pleasure in this kind of praying because it ascribes to him the right and honor to be the free and sovereign god that he is in election and salvation.

"rome" Discussed on BSP: Believer Skeptic Podcast
"Of his divine. And i'm not talking about. I guess a talent that she has just hit me so a little bit about katherine katherine was born to a family of twenty five children. Damn in the town of cnn in central italy. She got why. She's named kathryn catherine of sienna. Italy that's nice. She became deeply religious at a young age and was known to donate her family's food and clothing to the poor sometimes even unbeknownst to them now at the ripe old age of seven catherine had her first of many visions with jesus on a throne surrounded by saints now as a teenager then she took a vow of perpetual virginity and gave herself over to prayer and worship to thwart her family's at tends to marry her off yes perpetual virginity. isn't that the city of abstinence lay. Oh you got gotta flower constant virgin. I'm a constant virgin. I'm a constant virgin one teacher. That says i've a constant virgin temporary virgin. We should get teased. Get his t shirts. I didn't think about that. It's got to have the flower flowery. Language is actually foreshadowing for later in the story so to thwart her family's attempt to marry her off catherine cut her hair off scalded herself and then begin none so she was like. I'm not touching no man penitence. Penitents exactly so she became a tertiary number of the third order of saint dominic which allows for simple vows and living outside of a convent or monastery and really helping the poor sick and our community. So she really was about helping. Those who are less fortunate which i think is really great now as she grew up her visions continued whenever she was twenty or twenty one years old. She actually professed to be an a mystical marriage with jesus so she claimed to be inch and i read an article that said that she actually claimed to be in love with jesus which is the part. That's a little bit like Yet people make fun of the lady that married ghost pirate but yet a saint. Mary's jesus in it's okay and same thing and they do say no priests wear a ring like a wedding and you're supposed to be married to jesus but it it's supposed to be you know in platonic sense but hers. I'm going to do a little research because it's a little interesting. How it bleeds. Maybe but she also. She wore an invisible wedding ring. Take that for it. Means magical has like wonder wonder wonder catherine some of the story Say that the wedding ring. She may she had was actually made out of jesus skin so yeah and thirteen seventy five. She maintained that she received the stigmata. And we talked about that. One of our Prior episodes ago. Look at that though. These marks were only visible to her so she has an invisible and jesus her husband she has an invisible wedding ring and she has invisible stigmata. And i'm like okay. What is happening so she also has a mental illness. I i i thought of that but this delusions of grandeur exactly and. I think that she wanted to help the poor and she really did a lot going out of her way which i respect but i think she had some kind of mental illness now at first though declaims word that she had visible stigmata but through humility. Because she didn't apparently want to be put on display. She asked that they be made invisible and god hurt her prayer and granted so she did a lot of to her life. This is her life. But i'm going to focus on her death through the rest of the story because that's where we get into divine head in early thirteen. Eighty catherine told the blessed raymond of a leading member of the dominican order her spiritual director that she was not able to eat or swallow. Water soon. lost the use of her legs. She died on april twenty ninth thirteen eighty at the age of thirty three years old in rome italy shortly after suffering a major stroke little reading and the national stroke association states that visual hallucinations paralysis difficulty swallowing are all post. Stroke conditions. debunking. Already and i was like. Wow so it's possible that she had a stroke months before she died You know that could explain a lot of what is going on on. This is one of my main stories and use that my debug. Now she was born she was born. She was buried in a cemetery in rome and Raymond of caputo wanted to send part of her body back to cnn to assuage her family. He'll be like we're family has something now. This was a task. He undertook secretly. Because he didn't have permission to disperse her remains. He got his chance in thirteen. Eighty three when her tomb was actually moved and it within that he arranged for like a heist and he wanted her head to be removed and brought to sienna now official. Yeah it's it's a little strange so officials of the basilica. I'm say that whenever her skull was detached. It's separated easily from the vertebrae because rain. Water had seeped into the grave and sped up decomposition. Now still in. That comes into play a little bit later. Though but according to legend the people that the that raymond entrusted they barely escaped. the head. snatchers were stopped by guards as they tried to leave rome so they prayed to seek to catherine of sienna for help. Miraculously when the guards check the thieves bagga. All they saw was a bagful of rose petals it was then when the head was delivered to sienna. Did the pedals actually change back into her head interesting now. Her head then was placed in a gilded bust and displayed in the basilica. Lots of italian. That don't wanna say because it'll be bad. And when it was x. Rated nine hundred forty-seven church officials discovered that there were no vertebrae attached to the back of her skull which gave a bit of credibility to this whole thing about her being removed and how the rainwater had detached it. Well they went and did some exploring and church workers actually opened a saint's tomb where she was originally buried and her head was indeed missing. So even though. Some of the story is explainable. There's an unexplained part of even though the idea of her head turning into rose petals. Seems a little farfetched. Well how did they manage to steal the head and leave without being caught. And that's part of the kind of the mystery around saint. Catherine of sienna kind of reminds me of the story told of diego and the oh the shape of the roses but rose petals absolutely yup so it is an actually thought about. That's very kind of a similar tale. But this one is it's interesting again. I'm not shitting on people's beliefs. Because i know that my family my mom has talked about or had talked about saint catherine of sienna And i think some of the story is mystery. Some of it's interesting chorus. But i mean that's what leads it to be. You know a story of faith as well as just folklore innocence its own own tail jeb. That's why i think that there definitely is some probably mental illness going on at play and everything and now that she's the that's very possible very possible so all right so what do you think. Do you think people aren't gonna guess anybody gonna guess this based on one thing that you said during your story. Yes all right and i will tell you up because i. I didn't mention it. Because i want to point out or did i say something. I actually said guys. Our topic next week is no okay. Okay so then. Well listen to that. Because i think people had no one's guest at the last couple of times so maybe not guess over last one soldier. He's close. yeah. That was really close. And i think it was sef right. I don't know okay. I'm not sure about to go back and look but if you have any guesses let us know. We'll tell you if you're closer not and then tune into the full episode next week to actually here if you're right or wrong and..
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
New Idaho Law Calls for Killing 90% of State's Wolves
"They did well enough that 10 years ago, the animal came off the endangered species list. Since then, hunters have legally killed hundreds every year on a host current wolf population is about 1500. That's way too many for state lawmakers like Dorothy Moon, You know when there s O fearless that they are now walking down the center of a dirt road. Um, that that means there's too many of them. Moon and many others don't like how some of the state's prized herds of elk have become smaller since wolves returned, but biologist Michael Lucid, formerly with Idaho's Department of Fish and Game Says big herds of elk don't necessarily indicate healthy ecosystems.

And in all due respect, efficient game, they need this help.

Those changes don't sit well with Ned Burns, the mayor of a small town near where wolves currently Rome He's also a hunter and says it's more important to follow the principles of fair chase than what laws might allow.

Alcohol in Early America
"Despite the very strict religious beliefs of early american settlers their religious beliefs didn't include abstaining from alcohol. Far from it they saw alcohol as natural and a gift from god. Jesus both consumed wine as well as made it at the winning qena so long as you consumed in moderation. They had no problem with alcohol. The rationale for drinking alcohol was that water wasn't considered safe. This belief wasn't totally wrong. Prior to development of modern water purification methods the simplest and easy way to kill microbes in water was with alcohol. Straight water was almost never consumed. One stories told a better. Talion immigrant named philip massey. Who caused a stir at large dinner. Party in philadelphia where he asked for a glass of water. He recounted quote. I perceived some confusion among the servants and the water did not arrive the host next to whom i sat whispered in year asking with a smile if i could not drink something else because the unexpected request for a glass of water upset the entire household and they did not know what they were about unquote. When the first. English settlers arrived in america. Getting the ale that they were used to consuming was difficult. The ingredients to make ale didn't grow that well in new england and importing from england was really expensive. This led to the consumption of different types of alcohol and those tastes drove a large part of the colonial american economy. The biggest rank in colonial america by far was rum by the time of the american revolution. Colonist were drinking three point seven gallons of rum per person per year rum is made from molasses. Which comes from sugarcane. Rome was first made in barbados and then imported to the american colonies. However the demand for rome was such that the first round distillery was established in boston in sixteen fifty seven. Eventually every town of note in the colonies had their own. Distillery

Welcome to another conversation. Come listeners this amount of baptist. Podcast how you doing tobin. I'm doing good. How are you doing doing all right. It's been a tough week for for us. Say you recently lost a loved one in your family anthem. I'm mourning the loss of a friend. So you know different times during cova de wouldn't you say oh for sure. It's definitely a tough time to lose somebody during covid because you don't exactly get to see them funeral plans start looking different and there's a whole bunch of other different support. Networks are starting to look differently than they did before hand right. I was even thinking we talked about death last week. And then it kind of hits you personally so it's very interesting right. It's it's just part of our lives and when we don't think about it don't deal with it sometimes for caught unawares but yeah it's good to have to have that background and even as we are recording this we are almost at where death also plays a central role in the story and to defeat of death. Of course as well so yeah. It's very interesting. Yeah very much so. We had one of our recommendations to talk about singleness this week from a listener. Yeah it's quite the switch from death and there's quite a few ways we can take this conversation right so we'll kind of see how it unfolds. We'll see how the cookie crumbles but we could talk about singleness as an experience of individuals within the western culture right. We're probably talk about in our second half singleness as it relates to biblical values and and and culture and what the bible says there right and then we can also talk about a little bit in the beginning now about how singleness in psychology relate to one another. Yeah that's a good idea. Why don't you start us off with that Even as you're talking about it's interesting to even think about what is singleness right because singleness can be so many different things depending on how you define singleness and not being singled. So what do you think right. So single head is if we were to come up with something like a working definition here i would say. Single single hood is defined by not being in relation with another person. And i think the traditional idea of cygnus is in a romantic setting okay and you had some statistics on singleness in canada. As well which. I found fascinating i did and when i read these statistics. They're not exactly using the same definition. I am right and from what i understand. These are talking about single households so in canada. there there was an article in twenty nine thousand nine that wrote that compared to nineteen eighty six in two thousand sixteen. We had approximately double the amount of people who lived alone and so that means that we have about four million canadians across canada. Who who are single. Who who live alone and now with someone who provides that romantic so seventy percent of the four million have previously been in a relationship which would include widowed divorced or separated by any other means twenty percent of this four million are currently in a relationship with somebody but they just don't live in the same household right and then fifty percent of these individuals also have a child. Roughly speaking two million canadians live in a single parent or guardian household and are pulling triple or quadruple duty in order to support and care for the children or the dependence and simply don't have the same resources that we do with having an extra person there right fascinating. So when i asked you about the definition singleness you talked about not being in a meaningful relationship or romantic attachment to someone but then as you're giving us each statistics you already seeing a little bit of a clash with how you defined versus how perhaps canada or society defines it right because society defines this as just romantic attachment. I was just thinking about singleness before we even we even talk today and How we just assumed that you have to be part of a meaningful. You have to report a meaningful romantic relationship or attachment in order to not be single whether that's married or living with somebody or at least being boyfriend girlfriend whatever we wanna do whatever we want to call it but the experience of singleness goes beyond just that right. I mean The i was reading some articles about this author deborah hirsch. She's a christian author. She's a little bit out there because she talks about sexuality but she talks about homosexuality is not just a sexual expression within a sexual relationships ship between two bodies but that sexuality transcends also into every relationship we have because we we can't just separate parts of our being. We can't just say this part of me sexual in this. Part of me is relational. And this part of me is spiritual we are one hole and so it transcends. I heard a talk by her. And so she talked about what that means for single people and and celebrate people people who choose to be celebrate in that setting. And that doesn't mean that these people don't need community or meaningful relationships of attachment even if they're not romantic attachments over shirt and i like that idea of the embodied whole as you can't we can't segment like like you said sexual the the spiritual whatever that it all comes together as one person right that being said there are individuals out there who would find they can be in a non sexual relationship. That'd be classically to find a single but aren't troubled by that Right so you're looking at the asexual community where relationships with out that sexual component still fulfilling and meaningful right right and the flip side to that is you have people who have this meaningful community. Who who have lots of deep meaningful attachments to other people but are longing for would consider themselves being single and lonely and longing for a deeper expression for deeper romantic and sexual attachment to someone exactly while there are some that. Do not need that romantic or other person attachment to the same level. There's other people that crave and need it and desire so talk to me a little bit about what that means in terms of how how you live life and how you engage life as a single person. Well okay so growing up in canada as this as a single person who is wanting a relationship and can't find it what is what is that. Psychologically like and i would i have. I think i have a few friends who would fit this category and i just from conversations with them it's not a enjoyable experience Even in my own past bake as someone who from eighteen onwards wanted to have like girlfriends and wanted to be in those in in in relationships with other beings who felt that long. I've had a taste of how powerful that loneliness and that drive four relationship can be right and then there's a certain amount of feeling of rejection and isolation loneliness from not having that being fulfilled so as you're talking my question comes up. What's the. I am trying to word this but where maybe i'm using the wrong words but where does longing turned into obsession or or need so so what i mean by that is can you have that long. Can you desire something and still be content. With present circumstances. I mean that comes down to how you define contentment I would say that if contentment means you're all right with the circumstance. Then no because you still desire that relationship okay We talked quite a number of episodes back about the dark night of the soul right about longing for something how You desire of reality of presence to be with in in my circumstance was to be with god and how reality circumvents that there then becomes a conflict between what is felt. And what is known. That being said you've already touched on this with the obsession component right but then there is also that danger of it becoming an obsession of turning that pain right into something negative such as is found in some communities such as the involuntary salvator the in self community online right and then what you find in those communities is that a lot of this pain and turmoil gets turned outwards against other communities where they start blaming other people and other things for their own loneliness and rejection and in doing so their reactions become a negative coping mechanism an unhealthy behavior to try and alleviate the discomfort or rationalize it so then that goes back to my original question so because because my worry is that that we're kind of setting up a binary in the sense that i want to be in a more committed relationship of one sort or another. Let's call it romantic for for better for lack of a better word. So i want to be under romantic relationship. I'm either in the stage of wanting that and the more i wanted to do the closer i get to it being an obsession in my life or i get it and then i'm fine but there is no room to to to live a. Is there no room then to live a life. That says hey i would really desire this but i will also be content. Happy with where i am right now and and live into that to the fullest. And that's that's tricky because we don't have a lot of social narratives that kind of give us that framework to experience singleness in a healthy way. So if i were to break that down a little bit when we watch movies in rome these romantic movies and stuff. It gives us a lot of even you even say it's either healthier unhealthy. That's not me to judge right now but it still gives you those narratives to kind of go and say oh. This is what it's like to be in relationship. This is how i can experience relationship and and dating and being with another person. We don't have movies about what it's like to be alone at least not popularly right right or if they are they're fairly depressing right. There fairly depressing. It's all about not being in that relationship and own. Maybe i'll get into that relationship. There's the whole trope in the late. Two thousands of the manic pixie dream girl where it's all about these writers hollywood writers that use women and relationships to give men character growth in arcs in the movie right so it's all about being relationship pure like it's not about the expression of singleness as healthy in itself. It's about relationship as fixing your problems so that not then create problematic relationships as well. In the sense that i'm finding all my fulfillment than in that relationship once. I do find a relationship where i where i haven't grown as a person or don't have enough emotional intelligence to be content with the person that i am because the person that i was always looking for someone else to to complete me exactly. It creates problems both in relationships expectations for relationships and for people who also want to enter relationships. Right and even individually it creates a learning process or provides an opportunity for a healthy learning environment. Where you start to empathize with your partner where you can put yourself. In their shoes and learn that your flaws also have to be negotiated with their flaws and that there's a balancing act and interpersonal dynamics. Come in and i mean that turns even so now. We're talking about dating but that that that's the same thing with with friendships as well right. If you're i can see a scenario. I've seen lots of scenarios where where you're not content. You're not necessarily content with who you are and so you're you're expecting a lot of out of that friendship relationship for your happiness for your contentment even for your self esteem for the way you Assess your own value that kind of stuff And that can even come out in familiar. Familial relationships as well right where you depend. It's about on another to define who you are and to give you that esteem right and so i mean maybe we're getting off track but that's kind of what singleness conversations are in the sense. Is that the healthiest relationships in our lives are are where we have Some sort of independence isn't it. Yeah yeah independence crates freedom. Authenticity for who you are. In relation to the overall relationship that being said we also live in a society that needs us to be in relationship so to further expand on this point there is there has been studies. I was just scrolling passively I love read it i. I'm on it all day while just pathway scrolling on read it and they were talking about how people live longer when they're in hell in healthy relationships. Oh interesting and lots of articles in the medical community about how people who come in with their partners rent have better treatment results and partly to have somebody to talk to and somebody else to gather information. Yeah whatever the reason is another person there right even just as a tax bonus is is beneficial. So we have. We live in a society that set up for couples and yet the dangerous. become too codependent. And while there's this whole codependence piece talked about but then how as a single person do you live right right so if your approach this as as a single person you see the i live in a society that needs couples that needs you know somebody to stay home and clean the house or look after the kids while somebody else needs to go work. How do i be both people. Yeah or even attach detaches. I think in our society we attach maturity to to relationships as well right so a part of adulting is to be in a meaningful relationship. I always found that whole areas adulting if being an adult but somehow of verb but anyways You know like you are considered writes so you are considered to be a more mature adults in comparison to other people your age if you're in a meaningful relationship and on top of that if you do certain things if you have a certain job if you have a house and if you have kids right over sure i even feel that in school like what. I'm twenty five now. But because i'm married all of a sudden that puts me in a whole nother brand right of society all of a sudden i'm more mature i'm responsible and i'm sure if i had kids out even put me in another bracket above 'cause now i'm looking after little right little little children but as as we're talking i'm just wondering if we wouldn't have a healthier society if we we would learn what it looks like to live healthily in singleness for a time of our lives even just a how we talk about singleness it would be helpful for the individuals who are signal Because we are seeing a rise in people who live alone or who aren't conventionally married or unconventionally being with somebody else and just to harry healthier narratives for them to us and to understand themselves and even understand ourselves with. Kate will greatly benefit us as a community as a as a broad social community as christians and canadian. A do well. Let's transition a bit into the bible here. where So where have if. I'm a single person. And i wanted and i'm and i'm just lonely as all can be. Have you found that. Most people find their strength. I think were most people go in terms of the bible. At least we can talk about how we talk about church. How about single isn't church. And how we treat single people insertion. That's a separate thing from how the bible talks about singleness. I mean jewish culture. Very much thought that you had be married that that's just you know that that's the purpose of your life is to be married if you're mad at your purposes to have a have a wife so that your wife can have children and and your family line keeps going and if you if you were a woman you know your goal was that for your family to find to find the man or family who would take you i mean as a patriarchal society is but there is no. I don't know if there's a real allowance The only time there is conversation is about widows right and how you treat widows and so in that sense. The old testament is much more progressive than the surrounding cultures of its time and makes allowance for widows and treats them well and in that sense even relationships are still political. Yeah in that. It's not about so much being with somebody else. As it is a way to further your lineage as a way to get some gain right and not saying that there isn't a component. Alright love between why. Perhaps there is some counter cultural stories even embedded within the old testament to see the story of of ruth and her mother-in-law. Ruth naomi. i mean ruth's story restoring does end in marriage but it's very much naomi who makes it happen and they owe me you know. She kind of becomes a mother kind of surrogate mother to son that ruth bears. I mean that's how the story ends in the bible. Were supposed to see that image. Even though she's not married so it's a fairly counter cultural story there is rahab the prostitute who becomes part of israel. There's the story of tamar who forces kind of what we would call a constitutional crisis. It's not a constitutional crisis but it's a crisis of the law for for for one for for one of the for one of the men that was supposed to marry her. Her father in law's supposed to marry her according to the law because her husband has passed away but he refuses and so eventually she she forces her way into this. There's the story of astor who who kind of becomes part of this abusive kings. Well she's the she becomes the queen to disabuse of king and rescue the people of israel. I think all of those are somewhat counter cultural in the sense that that they're describing to us non normative relationships within that paradigm but also some of these women become not all of them that i mentioned but some of them are part of the story of jesus right so matthew mentions for women in the genealogy of jesus and even though clearly there had to be men for those four women to have borne children has not the men that are identified. It's the women that are identified. And so it already kind of focuses more on the person under relationship that that they were in jesus himself never married according to the gospels. All of a sudden you have these single people doing things right. i mean we. We don't we don't know of mary. Martha lazarus or married. We never find out. They are just people right. The assumption probably is that they would be. But but even when lazarus dies. we don't hear about his wife morning right. We we hear about his sisters. Mary magdalene she married. We don't know right. I mean you go down the list of all these characters and somehow we don't often find out about their familial relationships and isn't there a passage in there somewhere about how it it in summary. It's like get married if you want to. But you know your your relationship with the lord is i and you gotta serve that primary. I corinthians that where it is. I post writing. Yeah i mean. Paul paul is also single. There's a hint there. in first. Corinthians read the passage wrongly sometimes. But there's a hint there. In first corinthians step maybe at one point paul was married and he considers himself a widower. I've never heard preached in church but there is a hint there because he's talking to the widows and widowers and he's co counseling them to stay single and he says be as i am so he identifies himself with them. He doesn't leader. He talks to to what he calls the virgins which would be the single people who are potentially also engaged to be married which is different than the widows widowers and so there he doesn't say as i am because he's not. He doesn't see himself like that. He sees himself like a widower. So but in that passage. Basically what paul is saying. Yeah Marriage is a good thing and if you want to be married be married and if you don't wanna be married you have a gift to bring to the conversation as well and the way the we paul seasons in that conversation is gift that single people bring is is an attachment to church and into the work of god. I mean this comes out of paul of paul paul's idea anyways is that jesus coming back soon. You know. And so he saying why. Why waste your time getting married. We have so much stuff to do. Let's go get working and proclaiming. Jesus christ but that's the gift that single people that that's the gift that he sees himself bringing to the church as well right. I'm single so i can go and serve god and i can go and proclaim and so So he very much kind of trying to tell people. Stay in whatever situation you are. Don't get divorced if you're married. Stay married and have sex. He literally. I mean literally what he says. Don't don't all of a sudden now because you think that you're that you're christian. Stop having sex. If you're in a marriage you know. There's no you're not holier if you're in a celebrate marriage with somebody then if you're in a sexual relationship with somebody and so That's kind of his frame of mind right and so what. I take that passage. Don't i think what we should take a passage is that there's legitimate calling and gift to singleness within our congregations and we haven't really acknowledged that ever or very rarely and as as you're talking here. This is reminding me of a story that. I read quite quite a quite a few years ago when i was taking a family and marriage class. I believe that was the course. I was in for this. Where was talking about An evangelical preacher who was off doing missionary work off off in the boonies somewhere and then his daughter right was or his family was having trouble and distress and their daughter. I think even commit suicide over his lack of involvement. Yeah this is a story that i read in a book called sweet surrender by dennis hiebert and the question raised is what becomes more important family or missionary work right well. My critique on this was that he shouldn't this this preacher guys should not have even gotten married in the first place if he couldn't have committed to the relationship as a whole right right. And you know. I i mean before we talk. Today i went and reread some of this stuff. And i corinthians seven and you you can go and read yourself there paul saying that. If you're married you are committing to that relationship and you need to give it a significant amount of energy. That is your calling by god within marriage so you you know the the the calling that god puts on you cannot supersede that calling that god has put on you for that marriage. Because you're asked to be in this relationship of mutual self giving love so you have to kind of buy into that but if you don't need to be in a relationship like that then you can give some of that energy to the work at hand or two one way to one way to to translate it. There has to present necessities. Paul says And so that's that's how paul would put would address it. I don't think paul would understand. I don't think. Paul understand our fascination with saying hey To be to be a good human. I need to be part of a relationship. I need to be in a marriage any to have kids. And then i'm going to dedicate all my energy to my work or to my church. You know for pastors or or to this and ev- this relationship that i've committed to is going to take second place to another relationship i've inserted into it and then using jesus own words to kind of To support that is weird. I don't think paul would ever do that exactly. And i think we put this pressure on missionary work that It becomes the one and only calling for a christian to be part of god's works in the world. Yeah and what. Paul is trying to say i think is hey. If you're single now you can do mission or missionary work. You're not attached to the work of your marriage covenant relationship so why not not stay the way you are. He's trying to tell these people in corinthians why not stay the way you are and do missions work. If that's what you feel like god is calling you to see in our mind. We have turned completely around. We often how we are. We have such distrust of single people especially single men that we say. Hey no-no before you can do ministry worker before you can do missionary work and this is very much agenda conversation because it's not the other way around. We don't distress single women we asked him. and then. So that's an noticing this even as we speak right here. I've been hesitant to talk about this call. That paul has and says. Hey you're single and you can work for the church because to me. It sounds abusive. Make single women do often. We send them out to be missionaries. We asked him to serve. You don't have children. you can do this right. We don't do the same thing for single men or very scared of single men and if want men to do any kind of ministry. We want men to be married and have children because that safety as so. That's that's even the gender dwayne which we approach singleness right. And i think you're in a very unique position at thirty to even speak about that because of your work now with Generation rising coming up and with your older work at in out of town or you did that sort of abroad. Work right where you've seen students and individuals who either as a couple or who are dating or who are single going off and doing this work in in in africa or or wherever you sent them thinking of even thinking about who hires churches in terms of pastors right. It's okay for youth pastor. It's okay for a youth pastor to be single sometimes right because they're young Oftentimes if men right they're young. That's alright we prefer a single woman or a married woman to our children's ministry because they're just more approachable to children. Once you're past you get into a more. An associate pastor position or a lead pastor position. We really want that pastor to be married whether they're a woman or a man we really would like them to be in a committed relationship because that to us is the highest ideal. The highest value within the congregation. Right i mean. I don't think i've been to a church where we've had a single lead pastor. I have. I have not attended a church like that anyways. No i'm trying to think. I don't think i've ever had lead pastor as a single person. i've had associate pastors. Who were then in a divorce relationship or in a separate relationship right and that could be a whole nother podcasts. But yeah yeah. And i can't speak to their experiences. No no but within at least within the evangelical world that i've grown up in yet it's marriage seems to be this high ideal and so any time we talk about singleness and we talk about singleness even as a calling or as an opportunity We tend to think in our minds we tend to think about singleness calling opportunity for women not so much for men and we also tend to not put enough support around single people So we're tend to not give them the same community and while we say. Hey we value your singleness and if that's what god calls you to. Do we want to embrace that and you you can. You have something to give to us. We still want to celebrate mother's day and church and get frustrated when we celebrate we. Don't we still want to celebrate. Father stay in church and get frustrated when we don't and I can just. I mean i make a point of saying something to that effect every mothers and fathers day and i can just hear the roles you know i know the is aren't actually rolling but i can just hear that there's that pressure on you with the congress within the congregations like there there goes rafael again. Trying to be all politically correct not politically correct. It's an acknowledgment that our humanity is not just defined by our roles as fathers and mothers in within that attached relationship And committed relationship of of of marriage. I mean are not the only vision for for humanity not even in the bible. You know i mean. Let's talk about men. That aren't that that we wouldn't consider being fully men. I mean there's daniel and his three friends there most likely unix. Because that's what would happen in the bible. Once they were once they were taken as prisoners in palace. We have a whole book stories that we love to tell our kids about daniel right and we talk about the end times. We love to go to daniel and talk about you know that kind of stuff. There's there's a whole church in ethiopia that today still claims and traces their lineage. Back to a conversation with an ethiopian eunuch on-road from jerusalem Who's who has converted and baptized than an the ep ethiopian. Church still says. That's where we come from because he goes back right but somehow we've said that the highest ideal value is marriage is is being committed marriage with two children and suburban suburban right. Right right. I mean even within our culture. We do not have father's day and mother's day and a far saying on mother's day or a single people's they right we just don't either and so i would say for maybe the if we were to sum everything up that there's a really deep call. Or there's a really deep spirituality to being single and that there is special and it's needed and it's not any worse of a calling that being said we also need to adjust start cultural narratives and what we say in how we talk. And how he fee with people that needs to shift so that they can also feel that calling especially this has been another episode of the modern anna baptist. Please join the conversation by emailing us. At conversations that shape us gmail.com or joining us on twitter at modern anna baptist. Either way we'd love to hear from you and grow with you and continue to have fantastic conversations.

Thank you any ongoing very privileged to be here so the first question i want to ask about this topic is i think one that a lot of people have and that is what is aromatherapy. Where does it come from. I still well any Aromatherapy is a modern name for a practice that has been around. For a long time it's basically using aromatic compounds such as essential oils from plants. It's been used by humans. For thousands of years the essential oils are the steeled and cold press aromatic compounds found in the leaves. The flower grind and bach of the plants as different plants produce different types of essential oils. As what's we learn. What each one does we can use it for. Whatever it is that we need. So the ancient civilizations such as greece rome china arabian in-depth of used aromatherapy and religious ceremonies and rituals. We can even find a examples of aromatherapy in the bible.

Note that he tried fighting the blaze with strategic to contain the fire during this time. Nero was just like any other roman citizen covered in soot choking on smoke and trying desperately to save the city from the inferno as ancient roman historian. Cassius dio wrote there was shouting and wailing. Children women men and the elderly altogether. No one could see anything or understand what was said by reason of the smoke and shouting niro was in the middle of chaos. Trying to help for a brief moment. He looked like the leader. His old mentor. Seneca had always hoped he would be but this was hardly enough to change narrow from selfish tyrant to beloved leader. Once the fire was contained the emperor set out to rebuild the city unfortunately narrow sought to recreate the city in his image and in doing so he earned the scorn of the citizens forever. Nero decided that one of the best places to start his revival of rome was with his own alice. It was his delusional belief that the people would be inspired if he renovated the golden mansion. I he was wrong. The people weren't too pleased by this decision and mocked niro's extravagance then that mockery turned to fury when they learned that part of the palace renovation men seizing several city blocks destroyed residences niro. The land where burned homes once stood and began construction immediately. The palace was to cover two hundred acres and nero literally called it. The domus aria or golden house at the center of a vestibule constructed for the sprawling palace complex on the summit of the villian hill was a gilded bronze statue of neuro himself standing over one hundred feet tall dub colossus neronha's. The statue could be seen from almost anywhere in the city. No one could escape niro's gaze of course all of these renovations including the decorative gold cost money and soon it became obvious that the project would be far over budget. Niro needed cash fast. But even at the height of the roman empire it was difficult for an ember to simply make money appear and thanks to uncle caligula using the treasury as his own personal atm. Niro's empire was far from its former glory under augustus. Niro however i'd always done what he wanted. And this time was no different. In order to raise the funds narrow increased taxes and extorted provincials unsurprisingly. The audacity of these moves did not go over well with romans and it got people talking. Many of rome's newly homeless residents started to whisper. That niro's started the fire in the first place after all it was a convenient excuse to clear dozens of acres for a new palace. The rumors spread through the city. Faster than the fire had neuro wasn't fully aware of his reputation in the street but he wasn't just completely out of touch with the public members of his own administration. Were also doing their best. To shelter the temperamental emperor. From the negative press. The head of the praetorian guard. Tig leanness was a leader in this effort under his watch more often than not niro's detractors would simply disappear. Unfortunately despite his best efforts he couldn't execute half of the city and soon the public outcry intensified before long the rumors finally reached niro's ears and by now they claimed that it was practically unknown fact that niro caused the fire. Nero was shocked but luckily he didn't get angry rather he knew he needed to save himself. Shifting the blame to someone else then perhaps the public would forget about the golden house and the increase of taxes. Niro's is turn to a religious sect. That was already hated more than he was. It was a small but growing cult of one man's devout followers. They.

"This season, we're time warping back to ancient Rome where we'll dive into the notoriously violent and depraved rains of emperors, Tiberius, Kalibbala, and Nero.

Today will kick off this deep dive into the Roman Empire with the rise of Tiberius from his childhood in exile to his Awkward Adolescent Years in the shadow of Emperor? Augustus. Tiberius was an unlikely leader. Many Romans assumed he would never ascend the throne. Once he descended into madness and depravity. They wished he hadn't.

He lived in the orange building on the right side of the steps and it was there that he died of tuberculosis at the ripe old age of twenty five. His fellow romantic.

The pd keep going up the street as we've seen. Rome is the nation's political capital. It's also italy's religious and cultural capital but it's not the business capital that's milan and so the two cities are constantly bickering. The northerner say the romans are lazy with cushy government jobs they call it a roma letheren roam the thief they think of it as dirty inefficient and corrupt on the other hand. Romans dismiss the milas uptight orkla hollick's and they point out that when the northerners do go on holiday where do they come to rome. That's where they can enjoy some good food. The rich history. And the one thing romans have above all others la dolce vita these sent andrea very slightly left and becomes via propaganda via propaganda. Got its name because it was from here that the catholic church propagated or spread. It's message to the world. The epicenter was midway up the block at number one. This white and yellow building was the palace of the propagation of faith or propaganda feed. The building was designed by that dynamic. Baroque duo. bernini end. borough meany you can definitely see borough his hand in the concave lines. There's some above the entryways and also higher up on the corners. I love the carnoustie's the yellow and white flag over the door announces that this palace is still owned by the vatican. Keep going up the street beck. In the sixteen. Hundreds the propaganda palace was a big deal. It was the headquarters of the catholic church churches. Pr department a priority. After the reformation in the eighteen hundreds this department was charged with educating people about a doctrine called the immaculate conception. This was the idea that not only was jesus born pure but his mother. Mary was also conceived without sin. The idea had been around since medieval times but in eighteen fifty. Four pope pious. The ninth finally proclaimed it official dogma. They celebrated the announcement by building a major monument. And that's just ahead via propaganda opens up into a spacious square dominated by a single column topped with a statue of mary circle around to the front of the monument for the best view. The bronze statue of mary includes all her traditional symbols. she wears a diadem of stars for a halo. She's standing atop crescent moon atop a globe of the earth which is crushing satanic serpent to hammer home. The idea that the immaculate conception doctrine had a long tradition the architect placed mary atop a marble column that was itself ancient at the base. Sit statues a venerable and sage profits all in total agreement with the new doctrine notice by the way that the grand backdrop for the column is propaganda palace itself with its vatican flag. Picture the festive scene here. Every december eighth. That's the feast day of the immaculate conception. The pope attends the fire department brings out there ladder truck and they placed fresh flowers high on the statue even today you may see wilted remains of a flower wreath in mary's hand. This is the traditional event. That kicks off rome's christmas season now. Let's continue ahead to our final. Stop this spanish steps as you walk. Notice to mary's immediate left stands the spanish embassy. Rome has double the embassies as a normal capital. That's because every nation needs to steph two embassies here one to italy and one to the vatican. Spanish embassy is for the vatican and because of this embassy square and fame steps. Just ahead are called spanish now. Continue ahead to piazza dysplasia. Where there's always a crowd as we near the end of our walk. You may be getting a little hungry as you may have noticed. The italians are masters at the art of fine eating lingering over a multicourse meal at an outdoor table watching a parade of passers-by while a sip wine with loved ones. It's one of rome's great pleasures. Rome has a few signature dishes. There's spaghetti alla carbonara alla romana is the little dumplings. In season they enjoy fresh artichokes or cut trophy. Sultan boca is veal in marinated us. And of course there's always the traditional trip alla romana tripe or intestines. It's as good as it sounds yom end for dessert. Why not do as the locals do crappy gelato or a cone and stroll the streets. You soon reach the happy white noise of sea of people out enjoying another of rome's venerable gathering spots the spanish.

"Parliament. And it's obelisk this square with the italian parliament is marked by an egyptian obelisk from the sixth century bc. For half a millennium. It stood tall at temple in egypt. Then it was taken from egypt here to rome as trophy by augustus to proclaim his victory over mark. Antony and cleopatra the obelisk is made of red granite and stands seventy feet tall or well over a hundred feet when you include the base in egypt. obelisks were connected with the sun. God raw some say. The pointed stones were meant to look like sunrays by extension. They symbolized the heavenly energy granted by the gods to the pharaohs who were gods on earth. Roman emperors loved that idea to proclaim their divinity. They erected obelisks in public places. Think of the engineering effort that brought this obelisk the head to corey it. Carve it out of a single piece of stone and erected in egypt. Then after the romans came along they had to take down and roll it on logs to the water's edge and then loaded onto a special barge. Then they'd sale it across the mediterranean and up the tiber and finally bringing it overland to this spot and hoisted up. I bet there are lots of ancient obelisks littering the floor of the mediterranean augusta. Set this obelisk up by his selenium. That was a shrine dedicated. To the god of the sun it worked as a sundial and a calendar. It cast a shadow on a set of lines that marked the days of the year. This followed the brand new calendar instituted by gusta stepdad. Julius caesar the obelisk was aligned. So that on the day of justice birthday the shadow would fall directly across the solarium. After the fall of rome the obelisk was lost it was rediscovered and redirected right here in the seventeen hundreds just like the pharaohs and the emperor's before them pope's also loved the idea of the heavens giving them divine powers as rulers here on earth. They topped these obelisks. With crosses this is the only one in rome. Still kept with pre christian ornament. Ah globe with sunray on top today. This obelisk still functions as a sundial. In fact follow the zodiac markings on the ground to our next site the parliament building. This impressive building is where the lower chamber of congress meets to govern the nation of italy. You'll see heavy security. You may also see politicians coming and going political demonstrations and tv cameras if some major law has just been passed. This stately building is often the backdrop for reporters on the tv news. The palazzo has a long history of governance. Note the relief to the right of the door. It shows lady justice before italy was unified back in the nineteen th century. The high court of the people state met here. the building. Spacious facade is designed by our old friend. Bernini it bulges in the middle to make this. Small square field grander at either end of the facade. Notice the strips of jagged stones. This rustic back to nature style was popular in the baroque age. We'll see more fake grotto stones in a few minutes at the trevy fountain..

"The coliseums two thousand year legacy with the coming of christianity to rome the coliseum deadly games slowly became politically incorrect however gladiator contests continued here sporadically until they were banned in four thirty. Five animal. hunts continued a few decades more as rome's empire old and the infrastructure crumbled. The stadium itself was neglected. Finally around five twenty three. After nearly five hundred years of games the last animal was slaughtered and the coliseum. Shut its doors for the next thousand years. The structure was inhabited by various squatters used as makeshift apartments or shops as a church as a cemetery or as a place of refuge during civil disturbances over time the coliseum was eroded by wind rain the strain of gravity a series of earthquakes weakened the structure and a powerful quake in thirteen forty nine toppled the south side more than anything. The coliseum was dismantled by the roman citizens themselves who used it as a quarry throughout the middle ages and the renaissance they carted off pre cut stones to be reused palaces and churches including saint peter's much of the marble was pulverized into mortar and three hundred tonnes of iron brackets were pride out and melted down resulting in the pockmarking. You see today. Finally in the sixteenth century a series of popes took pity on the pagan structure. They saw themselves as protectors of rome's legacy and preservers of the memory of the christians who may have been martyred here whether true or not they short up the south and west sides with bricks and placed the big cross on the north side of the arena. Today the coliseum links rome's past with its vital present major political demonstrations begin or end here providing them in iconic backdrop for the tv cameras on good fridays. The pope comes here to lead pilgrims as they follow. The stations of the cross as a legend goes so long as the coliseum shells. Stand the city of rome shall stand as well. For nearly two thousand years the colosseum has been the enduring symbol of rome. The eternal city. We hope you enjoyed this. Walk through the roman colosseum. Thanks to jeanne openshaw.

"The pantheon perhaps the most magnificent building surviving from ancient rome is this temple. It was called the pen theon because it was dedicated to all pan. The gods feels the temples columns show the scale. The ancient roman built on their forty feet tall made of granite each of them carved from a single huge piece. The columns support a triangular shaped greek style. Peppermint try reading the inscription. 'em agrippa l f and so on it saying that marcus. Agrippa built the pantheon but in fact it was built or fetch it by emperor hadrian around the year. One twenty the temple faces a piazza as it has since ancient times back. Then this was an elegant square a gathering place it was surrounded by columns supporting shaded walkways. The ancient romans introduced the whole piazza culture. And as you can see it thrives to this day notice how. Today's square slants down to the pantheon. In ancient times the square was much lower. The pantheon actually stood above street level approached by a staircase but centuries of sediment from the flooding. Tiber river have raised the piazza to today's height. Check out the fountain in the center of the square. The fountain itself dates from the eighteenth century. But the obelisk in the middle is ancient. It originally decorated a sanctuary near here dedicated to the egyptian goddess isis. Rome had no problem worshiping. The gods of other cultures and since much of rome's grain came from egypt. They were more than happy to have a place around here for their a businessman. By the way notice. How the fountain steps disappear into the pavement. Another case of modern sediment swallowing up older structures. The pantheon is one of rome's great wonders. Feel free to take some time on your own hair stroll amid the forced of columns check out the huge bronze door but as impressive as the outside is the greatest wonder is inside a magnificent room with a domed ceiling. This interior dome inspired later. Domes including michelangelo's peters and brunelleschi's duomo in florence. Our tour does not go inside but we do have a companion tour dedicated solely to the pantheon. This would be a great time to spice that india experience. Otherwise it's time to move on from here. Are what continues past some interesting landmarks. On the way to the trevy fountain next track rick and i will guide you along from the pantheon to piazza paprika with your back to the pantheon veer to the right head uphill toward the yellow sign that reads casa del cafe. This marks a coffee shop called tut's doro one of rome's top coffeeshops. It dates back to the days. When this area was granted a special license to roast coffee beans locals come here for a shot of espresso or when it's hot. A refreshing grenada cafe compund. That's a coffee slush with cream. if it's open circle through the cafe enjoy the smell and energy of a classic italian cafe scene. Coffee to go is simply wrong here in rome locals pit cashier bring their receipt to the barista and enjoy an elegant little break. That's the whole idea. This scene is unchanged since the early nineteen eighties. When an american named howard schultz traveled to italy he was inspired to start a fancy coffee shop back in seattle today. Starbucks is making. Its way back to italy when you're done with your little coffee break. Continue past the coffee shop heading up via daily or funny after a short block via daily funny opens up into an intimate square called piazza. Capron ika as you enter. The square directly ahead is a big plane building. The palazzo capron. Akot notice the stubby tower on the left end back in medieval times. This tower stood much taller. Powerful nobles like the capron kaz needed such fortified towers for their own security medieval rome had of these stone towers kinda like that famous hill town of san gimignano. A couple hours. North of here does today but when a stronger central government arrived the rulers decreed that all the nobles would need to cut off their towers. If you know where to look you can see. Stubby remains like this all over rome and all over italy. The six story building to the left is nothing special but it's typical of a middle class. Roman apartment building circa sixteen fifty look between the apartment and the palazzo find the circular little shrine on the street corner like the city is busy with tourists today. Five hundred years ago this was the domain of pilgrim's worshipful spots like this made the pilgrims feel welcome. Leave the piazza to the right of the palace. Heading down the short street called via inequality you'll pass by a church. This may look like just another rome's many places of worship but like so many of rome's churches it's much better than its three hundred year old baroque facade. People have worshipped for at least thirteen hundred years. We're now headed to see something. That's even older than the church. In fact it's older than christianity. It says old as the birth of rome itself via acquirer leads to a t intersection at the intersection turn left. You'll enter.

"Heading upstairs roman brick and concrete while the coliseums exterior was built with big blocks of heavy travertine. The interior uses another great roman invention brick and concrete. They built hollow shells of brick then filled them in with concrete made of rubble. Brick shells filled with concrete could be shaped into pillars and arches to support the bleacher seats which radiate out and up from the arena the bare brick. We see today was once faced with sheets have ornamental marble and decorative columns a few marble seats have been restored. You can see them at the far east end of the arena. The coliseum was built at rome's peak midway in its glorious history. Remember rome lasted a thousand years from five. Hundred to five hundred eighty. It grew for five hundred years peaked for two hundred years and fell for three hundred years for the first half. Rome was a republic ruled by elected senators with an economy based on farming and trading wine and olive oil. The next five hundred years rome with an empire ruled by a dictator called the caesar rome's wealth came from conquering and occupying foreign lands which supplied rome with booty tribute and slave labor. The coliseum was built in imperial times as a grand venue for public spectacles sponsored by emperors and ambitious politicians admire the view. From here in the cheap seats the coliseum was strictly segregated down at ringside the emperor senators. Vestal virgins and vip sat on marble seats with their names carved on him. The next level up was for those of noble birth. The level we're at was probably for free. Roman citizens called plebeian 's end up at the very top one hundred yards from the action. There were once wooden bleachers for the poorest people for foreigners slaves and women that top story of the coliseum is mostly ruined but some of it survives along the north side. This was not part of the original three story structure but was added around two thirty. Ad after a fire picture the awning that could have been stretched across the top of the stadium. It was strung along horizontal beams pointed inward toward the center the owning only covered about a third of the stadium so those at the top always enjoyed shade while many nobles down below roasted in the sun by now you should be at the west end of the upper level. Here you'll find a bookstore nearby. There are often temporary exhibits. But we're here for the view so find a spot in the open air. Where you can look west side the coliseum you'll see several monuments nearby including the big white triumphal arch of constantine from this viewpoint. Look down on the hoards of terrorists buzzing around the base of the coliseum and picture them in togas the coliseum settings along the southwest side of the coliseum is the arch of constantine which will talk about a bit later beyond the arch rises. Palatine hill dotted with umbrella pines the pedestrian roadway. That leads west from the arch is the via sacra or sacred way once rome's main street. It heads up an inclined toward the arch of titus. You can just see the white top of that arch from here. That marks the start of the form. The religious political and commercial heart of ancient rome the coliseum was built between three of rome's legendary seven hills the palatine the esquel line to the north and the sealion to the south. The coliseum was built on land where the notorious emperor nero once had his sumptuous golden house with a colossal statue of himself standing at the front door. The house stretched from the arch of titus in the form across the valley. Where the call us siham stands today and up onto the s line hill with the construction of this mammoth arena. Narrows statue became the coliseums one hundred foot tall doorman then look to the west in the direction of the forum between the coliseum and the forum are some rune sitting atop a raised rectangular shaped hell. You'll recognize the hill by some door. Like openings cut into the hills support wall atop the hill are ruins of a tall arched alcove made of brick.

I'm rick steves. Thanks for joining me on. Walk through a district. I like to call the heart roll. We'll start in company fury one of the city's most colorful squares. We'll see a few grand monuments. Like the stately. Pantheon plus ancient obelisks and ceremonial columns. We'll pass public fountains like bernini four rivers and the gushing trevy develop. We'll see the rome of today. A glitzy shopping mall and the capitol buildings for italy's parliament. Most of all will see romans. The throngs of locals who love to get out of their steffi apartments stroll. The streets greet their neighbors and just enjoy that ritual. Pus agenda allow about two hours for this mile. Long walk that ends at rome's gathering place the spanish steps. This walk works well anytime a day. In daytime hours there's the company fury market in trendy fashion boutiques and a chance to actually go inside the pantheon but sunset brings unexpected magic. A stroll in the cool of the evening shows off the romance of the eternal city at best. Watch lovers straddling more than the bench. Jay walk past pull it in their bulletproof vests and marvel at the ramshackle elegance that softens this brutal city for those who were born here and can't imagine living anywhere else these are the flavors of rome. Best enjoyed after dark okay. Let's get started by the way if you'd be visiting the pantheon interior be sure to download my companion audio tour of the pantheon. Now grab some coins for the fountain. A gelato for nourishment. And let's head out on.
