266- The Prophetic side of Love

“Where are the modern-day prophets? Why don’t religious, political, or institutional leaders have the vision and voice to bring the world toward healing?”

In today’s podcast and post, we consider the words of Zephaniah from the inside out. Forget all your religious frameworks, theologies and dogma’s, they can’t help us here. Lay aside your hope in political reform, it’s impotent here.

Join me now, if you can, as we see beyond our surface level existence and begin experiencing the underbelly of Love where prophetic vision allows us to see ultimate reality through the many distractions of life.

263-Called Out 5: The Message

 “What is the message of the Church? If you answered; “The Gospel,” you’re right. But what is the Gospel?”

In today’s podcast and post we look closer at the message of the Church, the Gospel. Everyone has heard of it and most of us think we know what it is, but is there more to the message?

Join me now as we see beyond the common, evangelical understanding of the Gospel and look closer at how the Bible describes it. I think we’ll discover that our understanding of the Gospel is far too small.

225- Healing our Finances

“Is poverty and debt a social or economic problem?”

Clearly, the answer is yes, in part. When it comes to money, most people have no clue what they are doing, and that includes most governments. In today’s podcast and post, I will share my journey from poverty and debt into financial liberation. I will show how our financial struggles are byproducts of the real problem… our thinking.

Join me now as we see beyond the common mindset about money and learn how healing and liberation is available to all of us, starting today.

213-The Fourteenth and Fifty-Third

“What does the fool say in his or her heart?”

The fourteenth and the fifty-third Psalms are very similar copies of each other. Both begin with a searing statement that “A Fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God!’”.These verses have been used to bludgeon Atheists, other religions, and even fellow believers. Is that really the intent of this Psalm? 

In today’s podcast and post we continue in our fourth installment of the Psalms greatest hits where we visit the fourteenth and fifty-third Psalms. Join me now as we see beyond our name calling and uncover the profound depth and beauty of what it means to be a FOOL.

212- Your Vice and Your Dream

“How well do you know your own vices? How well do you know your dream?

We all have a vice that no matter how hard we try to remove, continues to return in one form or another. We also in like manner, all have a dream. Some are working toward that dream, while others have given up on it, and some still trying to figure it out.

In today’s post we examine the relationship between our vice and our dream and discover why we typically see them as two different things. Join me now as we see beyond our vice and discover its causal relationship to our biggest dream for life.

196- The Impulse to Retaliate

“What do you think about retaliation? Is there a time and place to get even?

In today’s podcast and post we continue our study of the Sermon on the Mount and explore the impulse to retaliate. The ethos to retaliate is a vestigial residue from our pre-rational consciousness, it’s a low-level impulse upon which we have built the world. What would happen if we just let go of retaliation in favor of something more?

Join me now and we see beyond the impulse to retaliate and look closer at a far more powerful alternative.  

180- The Sunrise of Your Life

The Sunrise of Your Life

“What has Easter become for you?”

Is Easter just another holiday that has been stripped of its meaning? Is it a sacred day of the year where we must pay special attention and make a bit more effort toward our spiritual walk? What if both of these extremes miss the point?

In today’s podcast and post we pull back and reframe Easter in a way that allows all comers to access it’s beauty and transforming power. Join me now as we see beyond the conversion to a religion, and into an inner awakening to the Sunrise of our life.

Day Labor and Justice for All…

 

“Do you think justice is about making things fair?”

 Our world commonly understands justice as it extends to equality and fairness. When things aren’t fair, we demand justice. In our broadcast today we look at another form of justice that isn’t based on what is fair, but what is right?

Join me now as we see beyond justice into a parable that reveals a very disappointing truth, that if grasped, will transform everything.

116- Healing Love

 

Healing is beyond our comprehension. We’ve explored beauty and our frameworks for healing but today we explore the biggest thing that exists. Our world has an overwhelming amount of pain and what we call “meaningless suffering.” How can anything heal us at this point? What is the path of healing? The proclamation of love is that it restores everything. How can this possibly be true? In this podcast and post I use metaphors to access the trans-rational aspects of our thinking and open us up to our inner spinster who fears loving again. We will learn that the only category big enough to understand and heal human suffering is that of love. Healing love begins immediately once we remove ourselves as the goalie of our heart.

88- Justice: It’s NOT what you think.

 

Based on all the feedback and questions I decided to add one more addition to this series. It will be extremely difficult to expand or alter one’s view of Heaven and Hell unless we get to the bottom of JUSTICE. In this post and podcast, I will prove that justice is not based in retribution as we are all taught, but in restoration. The overarching goal of God is not to get even with us, but to make everyone of us whole. For those who can’t get over injustice, I share a story that destroys retribution and I offer a link with 132 verses from scripture just to prove how predominant this alternative sense of justice really is.
