"Believe we're here right now. I mean, it's been a really incredible long road. I got my start in talk radio. And I want to say for the first time when I say here I mean, right here at this point. Welcome to the Dan Bongino show. I'm Dan Bongino. And, gosh, that feels good to say. Been a really long road. I never thought this would happen. And this moment is bittersweet. Mean bitter sweet in the real meaning of the phrase Bitter sweet, Not like Joe Biden says it where he screws it up and doesn't know what it means. But sweet because I get to talk to you now every day from 12 noon to three. On talk radio, which has been the heartbeat of this nation for decades now. But why is talk radio conservative talk radio specifically liberal. Screw it up. I tried that whole experiment with talk radio didn't really work. You know, we actually care about the issues. So we do this stuff and do it all the time and do it well, But why is talk radio the heartbeat of this nation? Why has it been for 30 years? Well, I could tell you most certainly isn't because of Dan Bongino. It's because of the greatest of all time. Titan of this industry, a giant Rush in Amman. That's the bitter part. Rush Limbaugh You're used to hearing for decades now me as well. We used to hearing his booming voice in your ear. This time block for 30 years. He's a giant. The Godfather. They say often, it's not just that Rush Limbaugh was the greatest player in the game. Rush Limbaugh was the greatest player in the game for 30 years. And it's not just that Rush Limbaugh was the M V P of the game for 30 years. Rush Limbaugh. Created the game. You know, you think of the greats in any business. Gretzky, Jordan, Babe Ruth. They had great 15 20 year runs. They weren't MVPs for 20 years. But they didn't invent basketball, hockey and baseball respectively. National conservative talk radio. Was practically invented by Rush Limbaugh. I want to say to the Patriots out there who've spent your time being educated, informed and entertained by the greatest talk radio host there ever will be for the last 30 years. Can't replace him. May sit in his time slot and it's the greatest honor of my life to do this. My first love has always been radio. But I can't replace him.

Ruth michelson joins me now by good morning tears guitar with us. Good morning. Just explain to us before we get the latest on what's happening in gaza. But what was egypt involvement in all this egypt has positioned itself as a key negotiator between the israeli government and between hamas the militant and political group. Mac controls the gaza strip. Egypt has said for a long time that basically. They're the only game in town when it comes to really negotiating between the two parties and it was certainly a. They were the driving force behind the push. At the end of the ceasefire with some help from the jordanians and of course a little bit of participation from the americans to but you know egypt also has its own issues when it comes to the fact that for example it also blockades the gaza strip.

Singleness: Burden and Gift
"Join us today as we talk about singleness as well as what it means to be single and life in the church join us in having the conversations that shape us greetings tobin. 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.

What if we vaccinated everyone in poorer countries first?
"Hello this is corona cost a daily podcast all about the coronavirus. I'm health reported teigen. Thailand and opposition journalist alter norman swan is tuesday the ninth of march two thousand and twenty one. So let's talk today about who gets vaccines when and let's talk about it from a global perspective because we've been talking a lot in australia about phase one a phase one b and all that sort of thing but really we have virtually no virus. It'll in australia. And it's running rampant around the globe and as we were saying yesterday when the virus running rampant in poorer countries. there's a high likelihood of variants popping up. That could cause problems with vaccines that we've got so ruth is ask us. Would it be betta for australia to vaccinate ourselves first and then turn our attentions to helping. Poor countries get vaccinated all to prioritize vaccinating people in poor countries first and then vaccinating australians. Second well there is a way through this but it's politically fraught one is that you could really go and make sure that all workers. That's everybody airport. Workers airport catering workers airline crews etc and their families and households are all unionized and preferably with the pfizer. Vaccines works quickly and his high performance. Hopefully against the variance and higher performance than astra. Also if you were to immunize. Australians before they come back home harder much harder to do then serious pretty well protected with our contact tracing and so on. And we've got time and therefore you could in theory divert two countries around us at an earlier. Stage the problem there is we would have to actually go into those countries and help them implement. It's not enough just to jump. Fis are at their door and hope that it actually gets there. We would have to devote resources to helping like we did with hiv by the way to helping. Those countries implement prevention and implement immunization campaigns. Many of them are pretty good at it but the probably need help to do that. So it's not just. The vaccine is the services in order to do it and the cold chain which is quite considerable so the issue could and it makes public health sense internationally if you could suppress this in countries where it's running rampant and have fewer variants being thrown off. Then you would actually make a big difference. But if you think of indonesia it's a huge country with a vast population and it would require concerted international effort to make sure indonesia it's enough doses and implements them and then you've got the pacific islands some of which are very competent. Doing this sort of thing and some of which might have problems. It's not straightforward australia's a rich country. But it's not particularly be country on the global scale would estimating vaccines really make that much of a difference. Mchugh difference to the pacific islands where the populations are small and we could certainly deliver enough vaccine to really get great coverage and places like fiji to value solomon islands and so on because the small populations and we can certainly devote enough vaccine there to get really great coverage the issues indonesia which is going too fast population as i said and chaotic health system in some parts and some of the islands massive cappella ago. So the question is what do you do. But indonesia howdy helping to nesia the sort of those. We could give would be a little bit of a drop in the ocean which require other nations to help out am and other suppliers to help heart.

She's under no such obligation others us who may know who may know naomi men will come provide for them but no she's not willing the sit and be given charity now.

"When naomi realize that ruth was determined to go with her. She stopped urging her to go back home.

I'm sorry in in <hes> orifice heart naomi recognize that difference between ruth and orfa orfa which are you today. Are you a ruth or you. An orfa uh-huh. I've seen people with such stiff necks. You could not budge them from their position. They were determined that they were going to have it their way and then some a hard edged judgmental hostile these kind of people sever the love relationship and make it impossible to live together but ruth in humble submission tao-ming says i'm going with you now.

"To have a very lonely time of it. You're not gonna be able to get along along with your wife or your husband or your family. You're always going to be bickering and fighting because you haven't made a decision to love. Unfailing love is what the scripture calls this soon. The story boas is awakened startled awake and he finds at his feet a woman and he and hushed voice says who are you. I am your servant ruth you notice she doesn't say i am the beautiful woman ruth. She is beautiful woman but her attitude. It is not on the princes. No her attitude is i'm your servant. She said spread the corner our of your garment over me. Since you are kinsman redeemer the lord Which you showed earlier you've not run after the younger men whether rich or poor and now my daughter don't be afraid i will do for you all that you ask those are the words we must hear from the heart of jesus this morning in the early hours. I was up praying in one of you dear brother in jesus. A listener just sent me a text isaiah forty one tin. I'm gonna turn to read this to you it so encouraged my heart. It was like a drink of freshwater and listen to what it says. I said this is god speaking. You are my servant. I have chosen who says you and have not rejected you so do not fear for i am with you. Do not be dismayed for. I am your god. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand hand. It's as though the lord were speaking personally to me. I heard it clearly in my heart as though god were speaking king audibly to me. The scriptures just came alive. It was the voice of boaz to ruth encouraging loving you see boas had also made a decision regardless of what anyone was going to think or say he was going to love this beautiful moa bite woman. He was gonna lay down his life for her. He was going to risk his inheritance for her. The other kinsman redeemer steamer would not risk his inheritance but boas headed different heart as he had watched. This woman worked so hard in the field to take care of his of her mother-in-law grace naomi as he watched her and he he heard how oh she had related to her mother-in-law. His heart began to be drawn to her now. It didn't hurt that she was also so very beautiful but that was not the issue. Boaz could have had almost anybody he wanted. He was a very wealthy man highly respected but somewhere in his heart. He made a decision to love this woman. I wanna tell you there's something that happens in a man or a woman when they make the decision that they are going to love and serve behove before god and before men submit not fight for your rights but follow jesus jesus and let jesus fight for your rights. There's something very beautiful about that. Now i know today in our culture women wanna fight for their rights in the church and they wanna fight for their rights with men and men want to dominate tate. They wanna control none of that's of love. That's all of the wicked human spirit jesus said he would not entrust himself to them because he knew what was an all men and women jesus knows what's in you and whether he decides to give himself to you or not will depend on whether you're willing to come and lay at his feet and say to him. Please please cover me with your arm and i need you. I need you. I said yesterday someone said to me listening to the broadcast. I want jesus. Several people have said that to me. In the last week i want jesus then go lay at his feet. Confess every sin confess every wicked way that you know of repent turn aside from it and wait on the lord and he will come and he'll put his ru over. You and they'll say i've chosen you you my servant. Uh i'll uphold you. I'll carry you. I'll provide for you. What's so amazing is when you don't have what you need and all you can say. Jesus is look lord. This is where i'm at. This is what i need. I just trust you. I trust you because i know you're going to uphold. May you're going to carry me. My eyes are upon upon you jesus. He will never let us down. Jesus has never let me down own. He has been utterly faithful and i made the decision to continue just playing his feet. I love him one day. There's going to be a marriage and what a day that's going to be. I i rejoice just to think about it. Clean white garments made of white linen representing presenting the righteous acts of the saints walking with jesus in glory and power by his blood shed on calvary ovaries tree. We'll boaz goes to the town gate discovers there the kinsman redeemer that his ahead of him as a selfish man who will not risk his estate boas is more than will derail his estate because to tell you the truth ruth in his heart is a treasure more than silver or gold already. His heart loves her so boy as announces to the elders all the people today you are a witness that i have bought naomi all the property of elimelech killian and mahlon and i have have also acquired ruth the moa bias now haunts widow as my wife in order to maintain the name of the dead with his property property or do you understand jesus says i have acquired you. I have acquired you in order to maintain the name of the dead. He has bought all all the you have. He's bought all of your property. He's bought you. He's decided to to make you his wife to love you. Did you catch that. Jesus made a decision to love you. You and nothing can turn him aside from that decision to love you but you can make a decision not to love him to who refuse to go lay at his feet to refuse to ask him to be your kinsman redeemer. You have that right to reject him and walk away way to go after the younger men to go after you own lifestyle to go after wealth. I'm not much of a catch for any woman because all i have to offer is a life of service service to jesus and if a woman doesn't want this humble life of service to jesus. She would never ever want to be with me because i'm sold out to my kinsman redeemer are you. What do you have to offer. What are you offering. Are you laying at the feet of jesus offering him. Everything then. You can't give it to anybody else. It all belongs to the jesus they bless they bless boas and they say you have a homelike. Rachel and leah build up the house of israel. May you be famous in bethlehem through the offspring. The lord gives you buy this young woman. May your your family be like that. Peres whom timour boarded judah you know.

Because if you're like me when you read the root story where you instantly judgmental of the two of them. Or did you just go? Yeah, I get that. I get why. Or why would I go to a place that may not have food or may have just gotten food? Why wouldn't I just go back to my hat my home and my family? What naomi's? Right. And Ruth is like, I don't know. There's something calling me here. What's interesting if you're like me, and I'm assuming. Yeah. Like that, look what we just did there. I'm assuming you're like me in that story. You didn't have any judgment. You just went, oh it's the story. Interesting. The one chose this one shows that to see what's going on there. All those times when you chose this and not that you went that direction. You let them off the hook. Because you're like oh, that's just what they did as one of the ways into letting yourself off the hook. I'm telling you.

"Than is to move it from thousands of years ago to today. There. I am there. I am there. I am now a bit about particulars and universals the loot bags in the callback. Friends have already started. Here's what I mean. The internet, the inter-web kids screens handles quotes. This person tweeted this, this person posted that a good chunk of the time on the internet. You're interacting with a comment. You're interacting with a thing, this person said, you're interacting with a barbed snarky. Thing, the person's Ted in the comments section. But you haven't met that person you haven't seen where they live. It's screens and handles and quotes and comments. But they're severed from the particulars. These two people on Twitter are going back and forth. Just flinging mud at each other. But neither of them no one thing about the actual flesh and blood life of the other person. No wonder it's making people crazy. It's divorced from the flesh and blood particulars of life. And it's the particulars where we find ourselves in each other in many cases. All you have is the comment isolated from this person's love and their loss. Us and their fear and their hopes and your past in your regrets. All you have are these isolated bits and pieces. No wonder it's making people mental friend of mine. This week was talking about the things he puts on the Interweb and how sometimes people will say horribly nasty things, and sometimes I'll just tight back. Hey, just a reminder, I'm a human. And he said, you wouldn't believe how many people? Immediately changes the tenor of things. So he just got. Hey, just a reminder, you know, on human, how many people be, hey, no problem. Sorry you mean and then it just completely changed the tenor, literally, these machines sever at some level can sever us from the particulars of our humanity. No wonder. It leaves people wondering if we're flying off a cliff, and somebody's what happens when you're sever from the particulars is this person's comment becomes the sum total of there, being they said that they tweeted that in the invitation for all of us is the rediscover our humanity. So these tools can be wonderful, but these machines can also take over and obviously the machines has talked about endlessly. You've heard me talk about how the algorithms are bent towards the absurd ridiculous. The mean the nasty Facebook only knows heat. It has absolutely no radar for good, kind peaceful, it only knows heat. It only knows conflict. It only knows activity and so the ruder the less humane. The more provoking the more degrading that's where the machines all head billions of dollars spent to move things in that direction. So that's the power of an ancient text is. It's like you're learning how to find yourself in that story. So you can find yourself in this person's story, so you can find yourself in that person's story, so that you're more and more connected with your own humanity. You're more and more connected with their humanity. And when you see them do what you do, by the way, one more thought, here, you know what I actually have fifty more thoughts, but let me do one more here. When you read these stories. And your connecting with their humanity. Which if you go far enough into them, you find yourself you go far enough into yourself. You find them what you're doing is your connecting yourself with your own story. And when you read the Ruth story and Ruth is there on the road, and she doesn't seem maybe she's torn, then she's not, or post torn for like two minutes, and then she's like, well I'm outta here.

"Can you find any nail me within yourself anybody ever just wanted to change your name to something else, because you're so bitter anybody ever found yourself, convinced the system and the game were rigged against you? Ever had that sense that there must piece if anybody's running the show there, clearly have something against me. Yes. Of course, of course, of course, it's an ancient text and yet we just dipped our towing. We were just a couple of verses in and we were finding ourselves. Yeah. Yeah. And then you add it to add to it this historic layer that people have been have been reading the story and finding themselves in it for thousands and thousands of years. So when you and I listened to it, and we like we tune our ear to its aches and pains and losses and tensions, when we point out like, oh, we don't really get any explanation about why, why Ruth is like that. Oh, that's interesting. Apparently the storyteller has no need to tell us why this woman would do this, apparently, it's not important to the storyteller, which, of course, raises all these questions. Whereas the story headed that the storyteller has no need to give us any background on. Why Ruth 'cause other places other stories around this story where the storyteller will say, she did this because of X he did this because of why? So when you and I read this, where act. Actually joining. Who knows countless tens of thousands of millions of people who have gathered around this story and found it doing something to them. Look what we did there it's almost like a musculature it's almost like building up a muscle within yourself where you're reading a story, and you're getting better and better at finding yourself in it. It's like you're looking far enough into them into her and her and him that you see yourself because it's easy to think about developmentally like think about a young kid, who only like a child toddler who the sum, total of the world is pretty much them. They are unable to put themselves in somebody else's shoes. They can only really see the world through themselves, and then what happens, but we would call like proper morals spiritual human personal development as you begin to realize. Hey, there are other people in the universe, and you develop this ability to, like, feel, what maybe somebody else's feeling or you can put yourself in their shoes. Or you hear them talking. And you say, oh, me too we call that. Like maturity, like growing up. So when you're reading a text like this, it's like you're building. These muscles to get better and better at finding yourself in it. Yeah. Yeah. That's what's happening there. It's a Mark of maturity when you see it in a child or as a human being. So in some ways the imitation for all of us is to get better and better and better at that. And here's why. Well, there's lots of reasons why I find this absolutely fascinating and helpful and convicting. And like a pulse to follow. Here's one it's the particulars that lead us into the universals. So it's the particulars of the Ruth story. It's like we need the particulars in order to get our way to the universals, if I just said to you, hey, I just wanna talk about, hey, you know, sometimes there are forces beyond yourself and you find yourself in a foreign situation. You know, sometimes you find yourself. It's almost like if I had just sort of, it's that thing on Instagram win the motivational speaker person just keeps posting like go get your dreams today. Be everything that, you know, you're here to be UB you that's all lovely. But have you ever had the sense of like it's just at some point a fire hose of platitudes vivere felt that way when someone's like live.

I go and your people will be my people, and your God will be mine. God. Yeah. You see by this story, and we're only a couple of verses in do you find yourself anywhere in here ever been displaced because of forces beyond your control ever found yourself with a full life. And then all of a sudden the people around you are gone. They graduated they leave divorce dead. They moved you moved and suddenly, the people who were your people aren't there and you're not home, but you're headed home, your home. But you're headed somewhere else. You find yourself in exile miles from home, because of decisions that you had to make just to survive. It's all here. So Ruth is determined to go with her. So the two women went on until they came to Bethlehem bat Lacombe they came to the house of bread. And when they arrived in Bethlehem the whole town. Town was stirred because of them and the women exclaimed can this be Naomi? Don't call me Naomi. She told them call me Mara, because the almighty Mara means bitter because the almighty has made my life, very bitter. I went away full. So once again, in Bethlehem this village, there would have been all these people who grew up with Naomi, and when the famine hits she and her husband boys, they leave. So these people would have known this healthy vital woman with these kids, and she leaves because they have the strength to leave, and go find food, and yet this bitter woman returns. A widow grieving mother of two sons who have died as well. I went away full, but the Lord has brought me back, empty Naomi's, like, really clear this, this is the fault of the divine the universe. We might say the universe. Is rigged against me? I know who did this, why call me Naomi. The Lord has a flick did me, by the way, she keeps using that word y'all way that's that, that liberation words. So she's like, oh, the one who liberates the one who frees people from wherever they're enslaved to. That's the one that's the one who's caused me. All this pain and heartache. And she says, here, the almighty has brought misfortune upon me so Naomi returned from MOAB accompanied by Ruth the moa bite. That's her name Ruth, the moa bite, her daughter-in-law arriving in bet Lehem as the barley harvest was beginning end of chapter one. I know it's an ancient little four chapter story tucked away there early in the bible. Oh, by the way, a couple of things you might enjoy here. Notice all the dudes die. So it's a story about women. Yeah, it's a story about women and actually chapter to the women all the action is driven by the women. So it's an ancient story thousands of years ago about women and the women are the center of the drama and the women control, and drive, the narrative, by the way, I'll, I'll be honest, we've probably should do chapter two. Next episode with me on this. I'm even sucked in I'm like, wait. We probably need to do chapter two. So if you're thinking, what does the story go? Next episode, we'll explore that nevertheless, for right now. Notice. That this is a story about women. This is story about women travelling in dangerous days. This is what about women going into the unknown. This is about the love in fide -delity between women, this is about loss. This is about a mother and loss..

"So we read it for what it is with no connection through a husband to like a larger clan. She's unprotected, she's vulnerable. She is at, at the risk of all sorts of exploitation. Why would you do that? Why would you do the least sensible? Most dangerous thing and bind yourself on an unknown journey with this old woman who apparently is fairly cranky and bidder to say the least. And what's interesting here is the storyteller. I'm just actually realizing this just right now reading through the storyteller gives you know, help it's like a giant mystery just sitting there, the storyteller is not like, by the way Ruth did this, because she was very clingy or you know what I mean. They're like Ruth had a tragic thing happened to her when she. Seven and she tended to over attach yourself to strong maternal figures. Right. You get nothing all you get is. I'm going with you, you and I are bound together. I don't really care. What dangers are risks? Lie ahead. This is the way forward. Have you ever had that sense? There's some sense within you that there's a journey into the unknown. And the people around you the people closest to you, like, why would you do that? Why would you spend that money? Why would you go there? Why would you pursue those ideas? Why would you leave this job, which is the job you always wanted which pays so well? And the healthcare is amazing and the hours are great. Why would you leave this known for the unknown? In some ways. This is the story of everybody who's ever gone on some sort of hero's journey isn't not all you know. And by the way, the ancient art of mid Rauch is when you take the story, and you pause, and in the gaps in the holes, you just dance with it. You just start throwing stuff against the wall. You see. I mean and in the ancient tradition your love for the text and the tradition was reflected in the passion with which you three yourself into the mid rush into the commentary. So you'd say why does Ruth insist on making this journey? Why does she leave home MOAB and head to this land, which by the way was known for its famine? Right. So this is a place as just recovering from, there's no food, there is that the first place you think hey, I'll go there. And yet at some deep level. It's like you can feel the resonance with your own story. All those times when those around you were making practical arguments for a particular course of action yet someone within you it, something within UN. No, no, I gotta go this way, or those times when you found yourself, bonded with someone and you can't quite figure out why you just know that there's something with them, there's something there with them, and you need to see it through, you need to see where it takes you. There's some deep it's like an internal magnetism some compulsion to see where it goes. But there's been a famine there. I know. But like it's like different gods. It's like different cultures different custom. Maybe it's different languages, like you won't know anybody you'll be like the moa bite widow who used to be married to Naomi's. Son, like do you realize no one's gonna like, really? Like you're going to be like a foreigner..

"You'd be going back to a foreign land. We're good. We're not. You, you owe me nothing. Then she kissed them goodbye. And they wept aloud and they said to her, we'll go back with you to your people, but I only said, return home, why would you come with me? I'm going to have any more sons who could become your husbands, even if I thought there was still hope for me even if I had a. Husband tonight, and then gave birth Tucson's, by the way. This is funny. Ancient funny, but funny, she essentially now me like even if I got married like tonight and we had sex, and I got pregnant, and then I gave birth to sons would you wait until they grew up. Would you remain unmarried for them? You're gonna wait around for my those young sons to grow up. No, it's more bitter for me than for you because Lord's hand has turned against me. So Naomi's headed home. But for her this trauma, this loss. Her husband, her sons, it has shaped the whole way, she sees everything. I know you know what I'm talking about you go through loss. He go through betrayal you go through intense criticism you go through somebody stabs you in the back you go through the death of a loved one. Somebody. Leaves you, you find out. They've been on faith all that. And it shapes the whole way you see everything. It's like Naomi's going this whole thing. This whole thing is upside down, the whole thing is stacked against me at this. They wept aloud then or PA kissed her mother-in-law goodbye, but Ruth clung to her. So look said Naomi look, Ruth, your sister-in-law's going back to her people in her gods. Go back with her, but Ruth replied, don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you, where you go. I will go and where you stay. I will stay and your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. And where are you die? I will die and there I will be buried. So may the Lord deal with me be at ever. So severely, if even death separates you and me you wonder if Naomi was like seriously. Pump the brakes Ruth. This is a bit over the top by the way, I'm sure you've heard these words. This is classic I think, is weddings, where this often gets quoted when they only realized that Ruth was determined to go with her. She stopped urging her now think about what the storyteller is doing. Here. There is the there's the words, but then there are not the words why it's almost like or pu- is the practical one. She's like, why would we go with this bitter old woman back to land. We've never lived in when the connection we had with her was our husbands, and our husbands are dead. It's almost like or does the very practical realistic pragmatic thing, and it's like okay, you know, I kept bit, but okay. Naomi PC with you. I'm going back to my mother's home where I like I'm going home. But what's really interesting here is Ruth. Has the opposite response? She would rather follow this woman. And leave home. And head into the unknown. Which, obviously was deeply counter, cultural, nobody would especially a woman who? In those days in those times in those places legal rights were next to nothing and without some marital connection to once again, patriarchal society..

I'm headed in a couple of weeks to Louisville Chattanooga and Knoxville come on. I have this first part of this year, I've been going to cities that I pretty much didn't go to last year.

Bristol mayor remind you, which is where banks is from Manchester. And then I'm doing three nights in Edinburgh Scotland, which is one of my favorite cities in the world. So hopefully I'm coming your way in the next few months. Oh, and also. I love talking about the art and science of communicating. And especially when somebody's stuck, they're working on something. Something that's within they need to say. Or they're in some setting where they need to say things. I absolutely love watching people get unstuck and figure out how to take whatever it is that sort of burning within them an idea and give it shape and form. So I've done these workshops over the years called something to say, and there's actually, like I dunno set. It's seven hours and forty five minutes is long form. Audio I did my site, which is all about the art of communicating. But I'm doing some more two days two days in August, and then two days in October, which are like, workshops, for those of you who communicate in some way. And I got all this new things I wanna talk about all this new content and new ways to think about how we give expression to the things that are within us. So we just put up tickets for that. And of course, it's always more fun when you're there. So there's a couple of things that are coming up that. You can be a part of but, you know, right now, it's episode two four three and it's called you and me and Ruth. So I wanna try something here and we'll see if it works, which is kind of how I feel about everything that I get to do which is we'll see. We'll see what happens, but I want to read you the first part of an ancient story, and I want to give you a we're going to read it in a particular way because I want to show you something that can happen in the way that you read something in encounter, it and interact with it, and then I wanna move from that to the world that we find ourselves in. And is there something there that is actually? Desperately needed, and I realize now that, that sort of like the most vague up everywhere. But hopefully in a moment here this will all be crystal clear. So, and I know you're already like, okay, where are you going to be in the bible? There's this book called Ruth, so you have the first five books of the bible Torah, then you have Joshua judges Ruth which is my favourite Lyle Lovett album by far, but Joshua judges Ruth Ruth.
