“Union with Christ, our participation in Christ, means that we have been given a new identity that doesn't just save us from what was. It invites us into what could be. It becomes the grounds of our sanctification and our pursuit of holiness.” Today's interview is with Kyle Worley, Lead Pastor and Church Planter of Mosaic Church in Richardson, TX and co-host of the Knowing Faith podcast. He graciously talks to us about the doctrine of union with Christ, a foundational reality of the Christian life. Union with Christ definitions: “The intimate, vital, and spiritual union between Christ and His people, in virtue of which He is the source of their life and strength, of their blessedness and salvation.” (Louis Berkhof) Kyle's baseline definition: “Christians, God's covenant people, are in Christ Jesus.” Verses on this topic (in episode): Jn. 17; Rom. 5; 6:4-5; Gal. 2:20; Eph. 1:3-14; Heb. 10:14; also covenant language in the OT: Gen. 12; 15; 17; 22; Ex. 20-34; Deuteronomy; etc. Recommended Resources from Kyle: Michael Reeves, Rejoicing in Christ John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion Herman Bavinck, Reformed Dogmatics Constantine Campbell, Paul and Union with Christ: An Exegetical and Theological Study Todd Billings, Union with Christ: Reframing Theology and Ministry for the Church Julie Canlis, Calvin's Ladder: A Spiritual Theology of Ascent and Ascension Grant Macaskill, Union with Christ in the New Testament Grant Macaskill, Living in Union with Christ: Paul's Gospel and Christian Moral Identity Other Radically Normal interviews: Trading Hustle and Hurry for the Goodness of Limits w/ Dr. Ashley Hales (#76) The Importance of Deuteronomy w/ Dr. Kyong-Jin Lee (#73) The Missionary Heart of the Book of Exodus w/ Dr. W.

Read as a continuation of Psalms 123 and 124, Psalm 125 invokes poetic imagery that invites us to retreat into the goodness of Christ, abide in the solidity of God's refuge, and delight in the offered reward of peace that comes from the Holy Spirit.
In today's episode, we're sharing Rusty's recent live interview with Jeremy Siegel from Orion's Ascent conference. Jeremy Siegel is a professor of finance at the Wharton School of Business and a Senior Investment Strategy Advisor at WisdomTree Asset Management. Jeremy's opinion on the economy and the financial markets has long been trusted and sought after by Wall Street firms because of his decisive and evidence-based approach. His view on inflation is notable and provides valuable insight into the markets from someone who's been in the industry for a long time. Jeremy talks with Rusty and Robyn about the benefits of value and global investing, the future of stocks and bonds, and insights regarding the future of the US market after an inflation run. "Volatility is a mark of equities and all speculative markets, so we're not going to be immune to it. But right now, when I look at relative valuations, they still argue in the direction of stocks over bonds." ~Jeremy Siegel Main Takeaways The markets aren't all doom and gloom. When the inflationary run is over, we'll be enjoying inflation rates as low as four to seven percent—rates that are still lower than those we had in the 1970s. Value stocks are projected to outperform other asset classes over the next 12 months. When the market is experiencing moderate inflation, choose stocks over bonds. Bonds with stabilized yields do not necessarily mean they are good investments. As long as inflation goes up, bonds are just depreciating assets. If you do invest in bonds, corporate bonds will fare better than noncallable bonds and long-term treasuries. Advisors need to do two things: manage expectations and prepare investors for volatility. Investors get easily swayed by the doomsayers, but advisors must give them the long-term perspective, the history of the market, and help them stick with their plan. Crypto assets aren't serious competitors to the dollar in terms of being an efficient transaction scheme. However, they present promising tech to innovate fund transfer operations.

Guests: Dr. Caleb Scharf & Dr. Stuart Bartlett One thing—perhaps the thing—that sets humans apart is the way we encode information in our environment. In his book "The Ascent of Information," Caleb Scharf, Director of Astrobiology at Columbia University, coined a new name for this externalization of data. It's the "dataome"—like the "biome" because this information can be seen as a living system in its own right. On this exciting episode of Strange New Worlds, Mike is joined by Dr. Scharf as well as astrobiologist and artificial life researcher Dr. Stuart Bartlett to discuss how the concept of the dataome interfaces with themes in Star Trek. Why is AI such a prevalent villain in the Trek universe? Will we ever become the Borg? What can we learn about biology by creating synthetic life?

We are given the ability to hear how God's people have prayed and are praying so that we might open our own ears to the cries of those who are in need.
As the lunar module approached, Young saw it through his sextant at a distance of 259 kilometers. Stafford and Cernan got a radar lock on the command module shortly after the insertion burn and watched with interest as the instrument measured the dwindling gap between the vehicles and demonstrated the theories of orbital mechanics in actual practice. Cernan especially liked the steady communications that kept both crews aware of what was happening. Pics on SRH

By Ben Light in Bend-Redmond, Oregon 2021 - September 20, 2021 - God's people are commanded to assemble on His Holy Days. Assembling requires effort to go to the the place God has placed His name. Assembling in Jerusalem involved significant uphill effort. As the participants made their way up the mountain, they recited/sang the Psalms of Ascent, which was their "playlist" for the journey. This sermon draws practical lessons from these psalms as we keep God's festivals.
Chinese stocks are down 14% so far this year, Motley Fool analyst Ben Ra joins us to explain why. The Ascent's Brian Frey shares the buttery soft red flags of a pyramid scheme. And we answer Adam's question on which types of stocks belong in which types of accounts.

IntroCheck Step 46 for a history of how money developed from sacred origins into “a force for evil.”Part 1: Separation and OnenessThis illusion is a prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for only the few people nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living beings and all of nature.” ~ Charles Eisenstein He goes as far as to say to bring forth generosity and love and all dimensions of life, “we must dismantle the systems of domination that perpetuate the illusion of separation. Most notably the neoliberal system of Economics but also religion and politics.”The difficulty is, we are perpetually bombarded and distracted by the reinforced narrative of individual sovereignty and freedom (liberty) with no discourse on social morality or what we owe each other. Eisenstein says we must disengage from this system, not oppose it. To do this, we need a new story. Not the age of separation, but the story of Ascent. Part 2Systemically we need policy in place that align wealth with the sacred. Eisenstein brings up negative interest. This is when money circulates and investment continues, but the original capital loses value. These would lead us to “value” the capital less than the products or services. With positive interest, there is an incentive to hoard money (pull it out of circulation) and be rewarded through stockpiling, which encourages stagnation, otherwise known as a recession. In 1906 Silvio Gesell proposed “ the natural economic order” where a stamp of a small percentage was periodically pasted onto paper currency, this maintenance was a fee on the currency. If wealth is instead measured through happiness and well-being, it will be linked with intimate connections and communities, mutual benefit and attentiveness, which also provides emotional stability, and can generate it's own economies.Part 3But what about land use, property, and ownership? The consumer citizen has increasingly been distanced from the means of production, and nature, to remain focused on the separated individual self. We become “rational actors” or “rational optimizers.”The tragedy of the Commons is an economic parable about how “rational actors” optimize individual wellbeing at the cost of the entire community, destroying the equilibrium to thrive for self-interest. Our current model exacerbates or encourages extraction, or commodifying the commons into private wealth, which leads to increase wealth consolidation and extractive damage. As the myth of perpetual growth become obvious, we need a support system, which is why Eisenstein recommends a social dividend: call it UBI or welfare. You may ask: where will the money come from, because with negative interest the money supply would continue to shrink?We will develop a “Commons backed currency” to generate new money and align it with preserving nature. If the land was in a public trust, a social shared resource that could be lent (leased) to corporations for a limited amount of time, the lease would be our social dividend, capital, and currency. This is a three-pronged attack torealign money with natural decay,alter the way land is used, letting it become the currency backing or capital as a communally shared resource, andletting pre-pollution taxing redirect innovation (and community) towards enriching a sustainable commons.

By Robin Webber in Las Vegas, NV, Redlands, CA, San Diego, CA - September 11, 2021 - The remaining autumn festivals are right around the corner. A question: Are you preparing now to experience and express your God-given holy vocation as a disciple of Christ or merely planning a religious vacation? How did the pilgrims of old approach God's presence as they "went up to Jerusalem"? What was on their minds, hearts and tongues as they approached where God had placed His name? The "Songs of the Pilgrims" ("The Psalms of Ascent"-Psalms 120-134) offers us-The Israel of God" (Galatians 6:16) a pathway to grow in the grace and knowledge of the ultimate pilgrim---Jesus of Nazareth.
While the boys recover from The Ascent, Stella offers them a glimpse of the outside world. And instead they take a whole lot of glimpses. Fin causes recursion, Malachi sees some familiar faces, and Regin counterspells. Support the show and get bonus content at patreon.com/shipoffools!

In Psalm 120 the Psalmist takes the high road…he wants revenge and retribution, but in calling out to God, he is leaving that up to God! Can we trust God with our hurts? Eugene Peterson wrote that this is a Psalm of Repentance. Repentance reorients us; turns us away from the lies that the world tells us, and from the lies we tell ourselves. Repentance points us to the love of Christ. Jesus loves me, us!! This WE know!!

Content Warning at 1:22:00 for discussion of Violence against a pregnant woman, Death, Incest, and DruggingYou ever have one of those days where nothing can go right? Well what if you had to have that day over and over again. Sound familiar? No, I'm not talking about the seminal time loop dark comedy Groundhog Day, a time loop I'd rather be stuck in than play another loop of Twelve Minutes. The whole Waypoint Radio crew played through it and boy do we have a meaty spoiler segment for you. Before that, we dipped into the Question Bucket to hear more Christmas stories, and a follow up to a question on getting into rogue likes. That was right after Rob took us through his aesthetically dense but mechanically mediocre experience with The Ascent. Austin is hopeful for the studio behind Foreclosed, a cyberpunk game that has great storytelling and visual style, but lacks a special something in it's action sequences. Patrick and Rob took us through their mind palace as they explored Psychonauts 2, but not before we talk about Patrick's article on Unity's non-gaming ventures and how workers at the company feel about its military contracts.Discussed (in actual order) : Unity 2:06, Psychonauts 2 35:35, Foreclosed 50:32, The Ascent 53:27, Twelve Minutes Spoilercast (see above for Content Warnings) 1:22:00 See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
