As London Fashion Week kicks off, BoF founder and editor-in-chief Imran Amed sits down with four London-based creative talents to explore how the city's rich creative scene stems from its unique cultural diversity and the sense of community and collaboration this provides.Background: With over 300 languages spoken within its city limits — more than any other metropolis — London has cemented its place among the world's most global cities. This has boosted its reputation not only as a creative hub, but also as a source of inspiration for creatives around the world working in sectors from fashion and media to music and art.“London has a rich Diasporic culture, and it's where… you have the opportunity to build a community around you,” says fashion designer Jawara Alleyne. “London, being such a vast city, gives that space [for] these multiple different cultures that are existing on top of each other and inspiring each other and feeding off of each other.”This week on The BoF Podcast, BoF founder and editor-in-chief Imran Amed chats with four exciting Londoners shaping the city's creative scene.Alleyne joins conceptual artist Amber Pinkerton, musician Bradley Miller and Dazed editorial director Kacion Mayers to discuss their experiences of living, working and creating in London and to hear their advice for other creatives looking for their big break. Key Insights:London's history of thriving subcultures has helped create an inclusive community spirit, says Alleyne, where “the people around you actually have a shared experience that you can amplify. You're no longer just speaking for yourself, you're speaking for all of the other groups of people who feel the same way that you feel.”Creatives starting out in London should channel their inner courage, says Pinkerton. “Don't be afraid to approach people or bother them… not being afraid to ask for advice, not being afraid to also get… feedback or criticism about things,” she says. Boldness alone isn't enough, Mayers believes. “You need to really find your community, hone in on that and just work with each other and build on each other and create with each other and stay true to what you want to communicate and what you want to create,” he says. Mayers added that his own London community is a frequent reference in his work. “I always want to reflect back to the community. I always want people to open Dazed and… see things that they can recognise and see things that's aspirational… And I think that's key to a lot of people's success, just being able to reflect a reality,” he says. Miller believes the industries that hindered creatives of colour in the past need to change if they want to remain relevant. “These systems and infrastructures… have to adapt to what we're [industry creatives of colour] doing because this is what's happening right now. For them to be relevant or seem to be functioning, they have to [provide] support in these things that are happening in their city,” says Miller.

Proper 18 First Psalm: Psalm 63 Psalm 63 (Listen) My Soul Thirsts for You A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. 63 O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory.3 Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.4 So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands. 5 My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,6 when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night;7 for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.8 My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me. 9 But those who seek to destroy my life shall go down into the depths of the earth;10 they shall be given over to the power of the sword; they shall be a portion for jackals.11 But the king shall rejoice in God; all who swear by him shall exult, for the mouths of liars will be stopped. (ESV) Second Psalm: Psalm 103 Psalm 103 (Listen) Bless the Lord, O My Soul Of David. 103 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits,3 who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases,4 who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,5 who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's. 6 The LORD works righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed.7 He made known his ways to Moses, his acts to the people of Israel.8 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.9 He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever.10 He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;12 as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.13 As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him.14 For he knows our frame;1 he remembers that we are dust. 15 As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field;16 for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more.17 But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children's children,18 to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.19 The LORD has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all. 20 Bless the LORD, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, obeying the voice of his word!21 Bless the LORD, all his hosts, his ministers, who do his will!22 Bless the LORD, all his works, in all places of his dominion. Bless the LORD, O my soul! Footnotes  103:14 Or knows how we are formed (ESV) Old Testament: 1 Kings 12:21–33 1 Kings 12:21–33 (Listen) 21 When Rehoboam came to Jerusalem, he assembled all the house of Judah and the tribe of Benjamin, 180,000 chosen warriors, to fight against the house of Israel, to restore the kingdom to Rehoboam the son of Solomon. 22 But the word of God came to Shemaiah the man of God: 23 “Say to Rehoboam the son of Solomon, king of Judah, and to all the house of Judah and Benjamin, and to the rest of the people, 24 ‘Thus says the LORD, You shall not go up or fight against your relatives the people of Israel. Every man return to his home, for this thing is from me.'” So they listened to the word of the LORD and went home again, according to the word of the LORD. Jeroboam's Golden Calves 25 Then Jeroboam built Shechem in the hill country of Ephraim and lived there. And he went out from there and built Penuel. 26 And Jeroboam said in his heart, “Now the kingdom will turn back to the house of David. 27 If this people go up to offer sacrifices in the temple of the LORD at Jerusalem, then the heart of this people will turn again to their lord, to Rehoboam king of Judah, and they will kill me and return to Rehoboam king of Judah.” 28 So the king took counsel and made two calves of gold. And he said to the people, “You have gone up to Jerusalem long enough. Behold your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.” 29 And he set one in Bethel, and the other he put in Dan. 30 Then this thing became a sin, for the people went as far as Dan to be before one.1 31 He also made temples on high places and appointed priests from among all the people, who were not of the Levites. 32 And Jeroboam appointed a feast on the fifteenth day of the eighth month like the feast that was in Judah, and he offered sacrifices on the altar. So he did in Bethel, sacrificing to the calves that he made. And he placed in Bethel the priests of the high places that he had made. 33 He went up to the altar that he had made in Bethel on the fifteenth day in the eighth month, in the month that he had devised from his own heart. And he instituted a feast for the people of Israel and went up to the altar to make offerings. Footnotes  12:30 Septuagint went to the one at Bethel and to the other as far as Dan (ESV) New Testament: Acts 4:18–31 Acts 4:18–31 (Listen) 18 So they called them and charged them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. 19 But Peter and John answered them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge, 20 for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.” 21 And when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding no way to punish them, because of the people, for all were praising God for what had happened. 22 For the man on whom this sign of healing was performed was more than forty years old. The Believers Pray for Boldness 23 When they were released, they went to their friends and reported what the chief priests and the elders had said to them. 24 And when they heard it, they lifted their voices together to God and said, “Sovereign Lord, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and everything in them, 25 who through the mouth of our father David, your servant,1 said by the Holy Spirit, “‘Why did the Gentiles rage, and the peoples plot in vain?26 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers were gathered together, against the Lord and against his Anointed'2— 27 for truly in this city there were gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, 28 to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place. 29 And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness, 30 while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” 31 And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness. Footnotes  4:25 Or child; also verses 27, 30  4:26 Or Christ (ESV) Gospel: John 10:31–42 John 10:31–42 (Listen) 31 The Jews picked up stones again to stone him. 32 Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me?” 33 The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.” 34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I said, you are gods'? 35 If he called them gods to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be broken—36 do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,' because I said, ‘I am the Son of God'? 37 If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; 38 but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.” 39 Again they sought to arrest him, but he escaped from their hands. 40 He went away again across the Jordan to the place where John had been baptizing at first, and there he remained. 41 And many came to him. And they said, “John did no sign, but everything that John said about this man was true.” 42 And many believed in him there. (ESV)
ACTS: The Triumph of the Gospel“Tough Boldness Before the Top Brass”Acts 25:1-26:32“Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people.” (Acts 2:46-47). “And the word of God kept on spreading; and the number of the disciples continued to increase greatly . . .” (Acts 6:&). “So the church throughout Judea and Galilee and Samaria enjoyed peace, being built up; and going on the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it continued to increase.” (Acts 9:31). “So the churches were being strengthened in the faith, and were increasing in number daily.” (Acts 16:5). “So the word of the Lord was growing mightily and prevailing.” (Acts 19:20). WOW!! Just about on every page of the book of Acts we see the amazing story of THE TRIUMPH OF THE GOSPEL even in the darkest of times. So what did the early church as described in Acts have that the modern church today doesn't have? Answer: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! God has given to us today the very same thing that He gave the early church. As we begin our journey into this faithful and carefully written history of the early church by Doctor Luke, let's pray that God will instill a new excitement and joy for what He has done and can continue to do by His Holy Spirit through the Church of Jesus Christ today, so that the TRIUMPH OF THE GOSPEL can be experienced even now in the dark days in which we live.

This lesson focuses on the Father of mercies, affliction & consolation, multiplying gratitude, avoiding heaviness, forgiving offenders, having no accusers, spiritual smells, fleshy tables, removing the veil, darkness & light, earthly sufferings & eternal glory, being clothed upon, the ministry of reconciliation, unequally yoked, godly sorrow, and more. 0:00 Introduction to 2 Corinthians 13:03 The Father of Mercies 29:08 Affliction & Consolation 46:42 Multiplying Gratitude & Rejoicing 1:05:09 Avoiding Heaviness 1:14:47 Forgiving Offenders 1:21:34 Having No Accusers 1:31:03 Spiritual Smells 1:40:33 Fleshy Tables of the Heart 1:47:58 The New Outshining the Old 1:54:28 Removing the Veil 2:03:57 Darkness & Light 2:11:09 Earthly Sufferings & Eternal Glory 2:20:54 Clothed Upon in the Resurrection 2:29:38 The Ministry of Reconciliation 2:46:37 Workers with Christ 2:53:25 Unequally Yoked 2:58:06 Boldness because of Love 3:05:34 Godly Sorrow 3:22:37 Comforted in Your Comfort 3:27:15 Conclusion
What is the difference between being bold and being brash? Which of the two can be done with humility? The Bible tells us to be bold and always act in humility, and it also tells of many instances where God punished individuals for being brash. Boldness comes from a firm foundation of principles, whereas brashness often comes from being insecure. The great thing is that we don't have to come from a place of insecurity when we lean on the absolute security of Jesus Christ, and boldly step into His calling on our life. For He always equips those whom He calls.
Acts 28:14-16; 23-31 (ESV) 14 There we found brothers and were invited to stay with them for seven days. And so we came to Rome. 15 And the brothers there, when they heard about us, came as far as the Forum of Appius and Three Taverns to meet us. On seeing them, Paul thanked God and took courage. 16 And when we came into Rome, Paul was allowed to stay by himself, with the soldier who guarded him.______23 When they had appointed a day for him, they came to him at his lodging in greater numbers. From morning till evening he expounded to them, testifying to the kingdom of God and trying to convince them about Jesus both from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets. 24 And some were convinced by what he said, but others disbelieved. 25 And disagreeing among themselves, they departed after Paul had made one statement: “The Holy Spirit was right in saying to your fathers through Isaiah the prophet:26 “‘Go to this people, and say,“You will indeed hear but never understand, and you will indeed see but never perceive.”27 For this people's heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed;lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their earsand understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.'28 Therefore let it be known to you that this salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles; they will listen.”30 He lived there two whole years at his own expense, and welcomed all who came to him, 31 proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance.

It's almost like there were two men named Peter. The one we meet in the gospels is good-hearted, but often says the wrong thing at the wrong time. Only a few weeks earlier, that one fearfully denied to a servant girl he even knew Jesus. But on this Pentecost morning we're listening to a very different man. This one has the courage to stand in front of thousands and tell them in unmistakable terms that they are morally responsible for killing the Messiah. Neither afraid nor angry, he says to them, “…you nailed Him (to a cross) by the hand of godless men (Roman soldiers) and put Him to death…” His boldness is remarkable. Today, this one will be so effective at presenting the gospel, 3000 people will repent and be baptized. The fearful, clumsy man who often makes us chuckle when we read the gospels has been transformed into a fearless, eloquent spokesman for His Lord. What happened? What changed Peter? We want to know because we want that same boldness for ourselves. We want to be able to speak when it's time to speak. We want to be able to pray for someone when it's time to pray. We want the courage to go someplace and serve when we're called to go. We don't want fear holding us back. So let's find out what happened to Peter, so it can happen to us too.

Rounding out this series on Sharing Your Faith, this episode looks more specifically at those who we should be sharing Christ to. If we have a sphere of influence (immediate or expanded), we ask ourselves "Do they know Jesus?" Sometimes that answer presents itself! But we pray through that and if there is an open door, we take that opportunity to share our faith and to share our testimony. This process doesn't need to be overcomplicated but it DOES need to happen as we are called and commanded to share our faith and our hope in Christ. This episode leaves with a challenge: try it out and see for yourself! If you have questions or have someone you are praying for/have shared Christ with, I'd love to hear from you. As always, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org BE BOLD, SHARE JESUS!
Caleb Jenkins // Romans 1:16-17It is so easy to feel shame for being a follower of Jesus in our day. In our broader cultural imagination, following Jesus is associated with, at best, being weird, and at worst, being the villain. If it is hard to be bold as a Christian today, it would have been almost impossible for the Apostle Paul in his time. Yet, he is eager to preach the good news because he is not ashamed of the gospel.Join us as we learn why we too can be proud of the good news and how we can become more bold in sharing it!Sermon Notes: https://www.bible.com/events/49125554 Prayer Requests: https://ccefc.ccbchurch.com/goto/forms/2553/responses/new23.08.27

As followers of Jesus, our attitudes, values, and goals must be constantly redefined in light of the Gospel. Paul's message to the Corinthians encourages them to live in a new way, embracing the cruciform life of Jesus. Followers of Jesus can live differently through the cross and resurrection and model generosity, humility, and weakness. This week we explore 2 Corinthians 3:1-18 ESV and how Jesus redefines our identity. Speaker: Michael Bayne Text: 2 Corinthians 2:3-18 ESV

I'm thrilled to share with you the latest episode of our podcast, "Flourish or Fold: Stories of Resilience." This time, we had the pleasure of hosting Daniel Pink, the author of the insightful book "The Power of Regret." In our conversation, we delved into the often-avoided topic of regret. Daniel shared his belief that openly discussing our regrets, learning from them, and planning our growth from these experiences is crucial. This aligns perfectly with our mission of sharing resilience stories. We also explored the reality of career paths not meeting expectations. It's a scary realization, but one that requires courage to face. Daniel likened this process to a dimmer switch or a camera focusing - gradual and revealing. We touched on the importance of segregation - seeking firsthand experience from professionals in your desired field. This helps to gain a more accurate understanding of the job, rather than relying on assumptions. Our discussion took a turn towards the concept of transition and the unrealistic expectation of sudden, sharp changes. Life is a gradual process, and waiting for epiphanies is not productive. We then delved deeper into the topic of regret. Daniel explained that negative emotions, including regret, serve a purpose and can help us improve. He shared the four core regrets that exist universally among people, each reflecting our values: foundational regrets (stability), connection regrets (love), moral regrets (goodness), and boldness regrets (growth). We also discussed the distinction between foundational regrets and the other categories. Foundational regrets accumulate over time due to a series of small decisions, while the other regrets often occur in a single moment.Finally, we explored the intersectionality between identifying regrets and resilience, mental health, and well-being.

Resources mentioned in the show: www.CharlesByrd.com Commitment Poem: “Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets: Whatever you can do or dream, you can begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it!” ― William Hutchison Murray If you would like more insights on profit maximization for your business, visit www.ProfitHive.com.au

What stories do we miss when we only read the Bible at the surface? In this episode, Rev. Natalie Perkins, co-author of the new book In Trembling Boldness, helps us take a deeper look at how we read and experience traditional from the Bible, as well as stories from extra-canonical texts. Natalie offers us this: “We often approach the Bible as fact. It's not about fact. If we approached it more like poetry, we would get a richer sense of the nature of the Divine.” May this engaging conversation inspire you to change the way you read—and listen to—scripture.
