Join Drew Pendergrass, Olúfẹ́mi O. Táíwò, Andrea Vetter, Matthew Huber, and Thea Riofrancos for a discussion on left climate strategy that assesses where we are and what we should be fighting for. What are the most useful frameworks to help the Left to organize our climate justice movements? What demands should we prioritize, and what strategies can we borrow from history and from other social movements? How can utopian thinking expand our horizons in what must be a massive fight for a more sustainable future? Centering class struggle, transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy, anti-capitalist economic alternatives like degrowth and socialist planning: can all of these ideas (and more!) be woven into a clear message and a blueprint for change? Join a panel of environmental thinkers to discuss left climate strategy and to assess where we are and what could be possible. A conversation with Drew Pendergrass, co-author of Half-Earth Socialism: A Plan to Save the Future from Extinction, Climate Change and Pandemics, Matthew Huber, author of Climate Change as Class War: Building Socialism on a Warming Planet, Andrea Vetter, co-author of The Future Is Degrowth: A Guide to a World Beyond Capitalism, and Olúfẹ́mi O.

Practical steps to delight in God | God's glory, our delight

Welcome back to our Gospel Spice fall 2022 series, God's glory our delight! We took a break from this theme over the summer with our "summer inspirations" but this is officially our "back to school" episode as we dive back into our favorite series to date.  "God's glory, our delight" is Stephanie's personal motto. Today we are pondering 6 steps as practical stepping stones to grow in our delight of God. This is not a guaranteed recipe - it is between you and God! Here are the 6 steps that Stephanie invites you to step into, with much expectation, humility and deep gratitude: First, Ponder the life of delight in the glory of god. 1-          Believe it's possible and real. 2-        Embrace the promise for yourself personally. Then, look at yourself. 1-          Admit we're still in the wilderness. 2-        Realize we can't do this on our own strength. Finally, enter the promised land. 1-          Cross the Jordan. 2-       Expect God to show up. Jews believed that the Temple was the place where heaven met earth—literally. They didn't think of heaven as a galaxy far far away on the other side of the wardrode. They understood heaven as being closer to us than our own breath. Heaven and earth overlap in intertwining circles, and meet in the Temple. We are the Temple of God because of Christ in us, the hope of all glorious things to come (Colossians 1:27). We are jars of clay, but we hold the surpassing treasure that is the uncontainable God Himself. Let's be practical... - Reminder – there are listening guides for each episode. They allow you to follow with pen and paper, or with your phone to take notes from the app. These listening guides are part of the workbook you can download for free as a member. - Today and each GGOD episode has a listening guide as well as questions for either group discussions or your own personal time, inviting you to ponder what you heard in the days to come. - Today we are introducing a new feature which is a listener suggestion: about halfway through the episode, there will be a 30-second musical interlude to allow you to pause and reflect on the lesson. You are also invited to use the second music break at the end of the episode, it is newly expanded, if you feel the need to chew on the lesson some more. - Also use our membership page to muse, ask questions, ponder, reflect, connect with us! - Please do remember that you can go back and listen again. We aim to give you the best quality content we can teach so it is intense and deep – that is because we highly respect you and your time, and we want to honor you as you seek to deepen your faith. There are all sorts of people listening alongside you, from overseas missionaries to seminary students to brand new believers, people listening as they drive or jog or run errands or do the dishes. So you are welcome, at whatever stage of your spiritual journey you find yourself in. If it means listening twice or taking notes using the listening guide, that's awesome! Take it slow. These epsidoes are more akin to a slow cooked French meal than a McDonalds drive-thru! - Finally, there will be a Gospel Spice online Bible Study starting in a few weeks – go to gospelspice.com for more. It is free, live, weekly for 6 weeks, and on a private Facebook group. Small scale. In depth. More details to come. Sign-up now. - Also Sign-up for our newsletter so you know about those things before everyone else! This will also give you access to all our content for free, including a video version of this teaching. All in one easy place: https://www.gospelspice.com/sign-up-to-be-a-member   This week's key verses are: 2Corinthians 4:7 - We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. John 5:44 - How can you believe since you accept glory from one another but do not seek the glory that comes from the only God? GOD'S GLORY, OUR DELIGHT | THE GOSPEL SPICE SERIES Delighting in the glory of God. Does this concept strike you as reserved for spiritual contemplatives? What if, instead, it proved the highly practical, deeply foundational perspective you need right now? Why does God's glory even matter in our day and age? How can we learn from Jesus to make His glory our true North and lifelong quest? What keeps us from fully stepping into this God-ordained purpose for our life? How do we kindle delight for God on a daily basis? And, once we have embraced God's glory as our heart's true delight, how can we then come alongside others? Join us to cultivate a sincere delight for God's glory, rooted in an honest, hard look at the depth of our need, and in the much deeper Reality of His grace. Trace the glory of God through Scripture and in your own life. Behold the exact radiance of God's glory, revealed in Jesus. Learn to see yourself as Christ does—through the lens of the Father's love at the cross. Jesus offers to overwhelm our deadly self-centeredness with His resurrection power. He carries us every step of the way, even as He calls us to true humility on the path to glory. Who has time to cultivate the delight that comes from pondering the glory of God? And yet, nothing could be more urgent today. Marthas and Marys, Peters and Johns—we are all invited to dare to dream of a lifestyle of God-centered delight. Nothing could be more practical. We invite you to check out the first episode of each of our series, and decide which one you will want to start with. Or, of course, you can start at the beginning with episode 1.  Season 1: the gospel of Matthew like you've never experienced it Season 2: Experience Jesus through the Psalms Season 3: the gospel of Luke, faith in action Season 4: Proverbs spiced with wisdom Season 5: Identity in the battle | Ephesians Season 6: Centering on Christ | The Tabernacle experience Season 7: Shades of Red | Against human oppression Season 8: God's glory, our delight |    This month we are celebrating the anniversary of Gospel Spice!

Hi there, happy Tuesday! This week, Nicole Taylor joins us in studio to talk Watermelon & Red Birds. Plus: We chat with Carla Lalli-Music later in the week—and bring you featured recipes and highlight new release cookbooks. Read on!Do you love Salt + Spine? We'd love if you shared this email with a friend who might want to #TalkCookbooks with us, too:Episode 138: Nicole TaylorNicole Taylor—author of Watermelon & Red Birds—joins us this week to #TalkCookbooks.A Georgia native, Nicole pivoted to a career in food media when she relocated to Brooklyn with her husband in 2008. Her Heritage Radio Network podcast, Hot Grease, brought 162 episodes with an emphasis on highlighting Black food personalities and “reclaiming culinary traditions & celebrations, cooking at home and eating as a political act.”That led to a couple of cookbooks: first, writing The Last O.G. Cookbook (yes, the cookbook-companion to the Tracy Morgan TBS comedy), and Nicole's first solo project, The Up South Cookbook: Chasing Dixie in a Brooklyn Kitchen, which pairs her Georgia culinary roots with New York influences. After a stint at a major media company, Nicole embarked on her latest cookbook, Watermelon & Red Birds: A Cookbook for Juneteenth and Black Celebrations. In the book, Nicole explores the history of Juneteenth—a history full of complexity, difficulty, and sorrow. Federal recognition of a holiday long recognized by Black communities in America only came in June 2021, amidst the pandemic, a national focus on long-standing racial inequality, and the unjust deaths of Black folks at the hands of police. As Nicole writes in her introduction, “Black joy often emanates from Black sorrow, and so it has been with that small Texas tendril of freedom, which has continued to spread and strengthen.” This cookbook is not just a historical text; it's quite modern, and Nicole hopes it will be part of the ongoing conversation around Black food in America. Not only as a chronicle of the ways that Black ingenuity and cooking have shaped America's food scene, but also how it will shape the 21st Century. In today's episode, Nicole tells about growing up in Georgia, making the leap into food writing professionally, working with past S+S guest George McCalman to design a book that “breaks all the rules,” and the importance of finding joy where it has not always been afforded.I hope you enjoy my chat with Nicole.Bonus Content + Recipes This WeekRECIPES!!!This week, paid subscribers will receive. two featured recipes from Nicole Taylor's Watermelon & Red Birds: the Southern-ish Potato Salad and a Sweet Potato Spritz inspired by Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man.

Rebecca Geshuri and Jessica Sorci are Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapists, and Perinatal Mental Health Certified. As co-founders of Family Tree Wellness in Silicon Valley, California, Rebecca and Jessica lead their one-of-a-kind IFS-informed group psychotherapy practice that provides counseling, education, and support for people who are in the family-building phase of life. They are wildly enthusiastic about creating trainings and supporting other therapists who want to deepen their knowledge and skill in using IFS and working in reproductive mental health. Most importantly, they are mothers on their own healing journeys who bring their own personal experiences with grief and growing, mixed with creative expression and spirituality to their work. Their goal is to heal the intergenerational burdens that are present in humanity. In this episode, Rebecca and Jessica share with us why perinatal mood and anxiety disorders need to be redefined, how IFS psychotherapy works in perinatal mental health, and why their practice offers training for therapists on the mother-centric approach to therapy.   Show Highlights: How Rebecca and Jessica came into this work with motherhood and the perinatal population What the mother-centric therapy approach includes and why IFS therapy hits the major pain points for new mothers A basic overview of the Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy model, which recognizes and approaches the different parts of a person in a non-judgmental, respectful, curious, and compassionate manner How someone becomes the “identified patient” is and why this person might need therapy Why the new mother should be viewed as more of a hero who is revered rather than merely a sick or broken patient to be diagnosed How perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) should be redefined to acknowledge patriarchy and shame How IFS therapy and the mother-centric system focus on the shame and inner critic messages within a new mom to unburden her How Rebecca and Jessica look to address both the symptoms AND the shame  A look at mother-centric therapy as a contrast to our baby-centric culture How Family Tree Wellness is offering training and resources for other therapists–along with an upcoming book!   Resources: Connect with Rebecca and Jessica:  Website, Facebook, and Instagram Visit www.postpartum.net for resources!

"Live your truth" and other lies | with apologist Alisa Childers

Gospel Spice

Stephanie welcomes apologist and author Alisa Childers for a lively conversation about the absolute truth of the gospel in the context of the current views that emerge from progressive Christianity and deconstruction movements. You have heard these. In our culture, we hear so much self-help and self-praise: “you are all you need”; “put yourself first;” “you are the hero of your own story”; “it's all about you”; “you only live once”;  “you can be your own best self”; “live your own truth”; “you do you;” “you are perfect just as you are.” And so much more… These meme-like, social-media friendly statements seem so nice and innocuous, but what if they were the beginning of a slippery slope towards unbiblical Christianity? Alisa is a powerful apologist who unwittingly embraced this faulty theology for a while, until she grounded herself in Christ again through thorough study and reflection. She tells us how she acquired what she calls her “guided, self-taught knowledge” and how she keeps up with what is happening in our rapidly changing world. She invites us in her journey and helps us identify red flags, and shares with us how she deepens her intimacy with God on a daily basis. Alisa Childers says of herself, “As a lifelong church-goer, follower of Jesus, and former CCM recording artist with the Dove award-winning group ZOEgirl, I experienced a period of profound doubt about my faith in my mid-thirties. I felt as though I had been tossed in a stormy ocean of uncertainty with no life jacket or  lifeboat in sight. I didn't know where to find answers to my questions, or if answers existed at all. Did I have to accept it all on some kind of blind faith?  I began to investigate my faith intellectually—I took seminary classes and read everything I could get my hands on. This began my  journey from  unreasoned doubt into a vibrant, rational, and informed faith.”   MEET ALISA https://www.alisachilders.com/ https://www.facebook.com/alisachilders https://www.instagram.com/alisachilders/   ABOUT “LIVE YOUR TRUTH AND OTHER LIES” buy here Are you tired of feeling like you have to check social media to find out what you're supposed to think? Are you weary of the latest self-help books that promise to set you free but only imprison you with laundry lists of studies to consider, positive affirmations to recite, and Facebook groups to join? We've all seen the memes that populate the internet: live your truth, follow your heart, you only have one life to live. They sound nice and positive. But what if these slogans are actually lies that unhinge us from reality and leave us anxious and exhausted? Another Gospel? author Alisa Childers invites you to examine modern lies that are disguised as truths in today's culture. Everyday messages of peace, fulfillment, and empowerment swirl around social media. On the surface, they seem like sentiments of freedom and hope, but in reality they are deeply deceptive. In Live Your Truth (and Other Lies), Alisa will help you to:   ·        uncover the common lies repeated within progressive circles ·        hold on to the soul-restoring truths that God's Word offers ·        be empowered to live the way your Creator designed you Being the captain of your own destiny and striving to make your dreams a reality is a huge burden that you were never meant to bear. Discover true freedom instead. ABOUT “ANOTHER GOSPEL?” buy here A movement seeks to redefine Christianity. Some think that it is a much-needed progressive reformation. Others believe that it is an attack on historic Christianity. Alisa Childers never thought she would question her Christian faith. She was raised in a Christian home, where she had seen her mom and dad feed the hungry, clothe the homeless, and love the outcast. She had witnessed God at work and then had dedicated her own life to leading worship as part of the popular Christian band ZOEgirl. All that was deeply challenged when she met a progressive pastor who called himself a hopeful agnostic. Another Gospel? describes the intellectual journey Alisa took over several years as she wrestled with a series of questions that struck at the core of the Christian faith. After everything she had ever believed about God, Jesus, and the Bible had been picked apart, she found herself at the brink of despair...until God rescued her, helping her to rebuild her faith, one solid brick at a time. In a culture of endless questions, you need solid answers. If you or someone you love has encountered the ideas of progressive Christianity and aren't sure how to respond, Alisa's journey will show you how to determine - and rest in - what's unmistakably true. ABOUT THE PARTICIPANT GUIDE TO “ANOTHER GOSPEL?” Another Gospel? Participant's Guide is a six-session workbook designed for use with the companion DVD experience (sold separately). Based on the book Another Gospel? by popular author, blogger, speaker, and worship leader Alisa Childers, this is a great resource for anyone wanting to explore the nuanced topic of progressive Christianity. Designed to be used with groups or individually, Another Gospel? Participant's Guide will ·        Help you challenge the persuasive message of progressive Christianity by examining popular messages found in progressive books, blogs, social media platforms, and scholarship ·        Teach you how to use discernment, think logically, and make biblically based observations ·        Lead you to discover how deep, thrilling, and humbling the true gospel is In a culture of endless questions, you need solid answers. If you or someone you love has encountered the ideas of progressive Christianity and isn't sure how to respond, Alisa will show you how to determine―and rest in―what's unmistakably true.

Sri Namaste shares her story of alchemical marriage with her husband, Baba Richard, and the cultivation of their container The Infinite Couple, as well as parenting 8 children into adulthood, and running their business devoted to returning men to the masculine, women to the feminine, and men and women to each other. We explore: -The story behind Sri Namaste's mission to bring women back to the feminine -The confusion around gender roles and polarity dynamics in modern society -Where feminism has failed women and disrupted polarity -Why so many women can't seem to find a man to meet them/wonder where are the good men are -Teaching children by what we model, not what we say -Rest as THE priority, not as a reward -Overcoming victimhood, moving beyond cancel culture, and some of the downfalls of the “Me too” movement -How feminism often widens the division between men and women, rather than bridging the gap and fostering change and healing -Learning sovereign choice and self-responsibility in a consent-focused culture -Empowerment as an inside job -The art and power of transparency in partnership and marriage -The difference between yin/yang, and feminine/masculine -Maintaining the spark of desire in long term relationships -Cultivating authenticity as an entrepreneur -Doing business in a feminine way without the grind, hustle, and burnout -Centering the slow ripening of our work for the greatest success -And so much more Sri Namaste Moore is Half of the Infinite Couple, Founder of Feminae - The Way of Womanhood and Co-Founder and Transmitter of Dyadic Consciousness: The Codes of the Next Evolution of Humanity. She is a Wife and Mother of 8 adults. She and her Husband Baba Richard are here to return Men to the Masculine, Women to the Feminine and Men and Women to Each Other to Create Legendary Love, Build Generational Wealth, and Live and Lead their Legacy. https://www.facebook.com/namaste.moore/ https://www.facebook.com/IAmNamasteMoore https://www.instagram.com/iamnamastemoore/ Connect with me and discover how we can work together via Instagram and my website.

Welcome back to our Gospel Spice fall 2022 series, God's glory our delight! We took a break from this theme over the summer with our "summer inspirations" but this is officially our "back to school" episode as we dive back into our favorite series to date.  "God's glory, our delight" is Stephanie's personal motto. In the spring, with episodes 146 through to 155, we entered into the deep waters of defining the glory of God and the quest of our hearts. Now with the second half of the series, we are going to the more practical side of delight. Stephanie invites us to ponder two illustrations to help us wrap our minds around the scope of our ambition to make the glory of God the delight of our heart. She quotes one of her favorite authors and theologians, Andrew Murray: “Humility is simply the disposition which prepares the soul for living on trust.” Stephanie says, "The Christian life is about growing in our experience of what we know to be true." She adds, "The glory IS there, and it IS real, and it IS delightful." She brings us back to Andrew Murray: “Faith is the organ or sense for the perception and apprehension of the heavenly world and its blessings.” Finally, she invites us to wonder: "how can we live a life that is the practical application of this objective reality?" Let's be practical... - Reminder – there are listening guides for each episode. They allow you to follow with pen and paper, or with your phone to take notes from the app. These listening guides are part of the workbook you can download for free as a member. - Today and each GGOD episode has a listening guide as well as questions for either group discussions or your own personal time, inviting you to ponder what you heard in the days to come. - Today we are introducing a new feature which is a listener suggestion: about halfway through the episode, there will be a 30-second musical interlude to allow you to pause and reflect on the lesson. You are also invited to use the second music break at the end of the episode, it is newly expanded, if you feel the need to chew on the lesson some more. - Also use our membership page to muse, ask questions, ponder, reflect, connect with us! - Please do remember that you can go back and listen again. We aim to give you the best quality content we can teach so it is intense and deep – that is because we highly respect you and your time, and we want to honor you as you seek to deepen your faith. There are all sorts of people listening alongside you, from overseas missionaries to seminary students to brand new believers, people listening as they drive or jog or run errands or do the dishes. So you are welcome, at whatever stage of your spiritual journey you find yourself in. If it means listening twice or taking notes using the listening guide, that's awesome! Take it slow. These epsidoes are more akin to a slow cooked French meal than a McDonalds drive-thru! - Finally, there will be a Gospel Spice online Bible Study starting in a few weeks – go to gospelspice.com for more. It is free, live, weekly for 6 weeks, and on a private Facebook group. Small scale. In depth. More details to come. Sign-up now. - Also Sign-up for our newsletter so you know about those things before everyone else! This will also give you access to all our content for free, including a video version of this teaching. All in one easy place: https://www.gospelspice.com/sign-up-to-be-a-member   This week's key verses are: 2Corinthians 4:7 - We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. John 5:44 - How can you believe since you accept glory from one another but do not seek the glory that comes from the only God? GOD'S GLORY, OUR DELIGHT | THE GOSPEL SPICE SERIES Delighting in the glory of God. Does this concept strike you as reserved for spiritual contemplatives? What if, instead, it proved the highly practical, deeply foundational perspective you need right now? Why does God's glory even matter in our day and age? How can we learn from Jesus to make His glory our true North and lifelong quest? What keeps us from fully stepping into this God-ordained purpose for our life? How do we kindle delight for God on a daily basis? And, once we have embraced God's glory as our heart's true delight, how can we then come alongside others? Join us to cultivate a sincere delight for God's glory, rooted in an honest, hard look at the depth of our need, and in the much deeper Reality of His grace. Trace the glory of God through Scripture and in your own life. Behold the exact radiance of God's glory, revealed in Jesus. Learn to see yourself as Christ does—through the lens of the Father's love at the cross. Jesus offers to overwhelm our deadly self-centeredness with His resurrection power. He carries us every step of the way, even as He calls us to true humility on the path to glory. Who has time to cultivate the delight that comes from pondering the glory of God? And yet, nothing could be more urgent today. Marthas and Marys, Peters and Johns—we are all invited to dare to dream of a lifestyle of God-centered delight. Nothing could be more practical.

Stephanie welcomes like-minded soul sister Nicole Jacobsmeyer for a raw, deep conversation about pain, suffering, God's role in it, and ours. Though they just met over this conversation, they clicked in deep ways. Throughout a decade of trials—from assault and depression to miscarriage and cancer— Nicole Jacobsmeyer really began to wonder: Is God giving me more than I can handle? Nicole's books is indirectly a powerful answer to the problem of evil and suffering in the world. While it is not a book for Christian apologetics, stephanie highly recommends it for anyone who seeks to answer these questions for themselves or for a loved one. In Take Back Your Joy, Nicole shares her story of questioning God - but falling more in love with Him than ever. Without sugarcoating her own struggles or yours, she equips you in your darkest moments to: ·      Embrace a clear sense of purpose. ·      Stay grounded in God's Word. ·      Serve others with gratitude. ·      Choose forgiveness—again and again. ·      Discover the freedom of giving up control…and more! Nicole says, “We are not defined by the trials we face, and you are not alone in your suffering, doubts, and questions. I've been there. Take Back Your Joy invites you to see your life through a fresh lens as you glimpse the big picture of God's work. Because I honestly believe that sometimes one of the greatest gifts is to have more than we can handle—so we can find a deeper joy in Christ who can handle it all.” Nicole wrote this book for you if...

MEET NICOLE JACOBSMEYER Hi! I'm Nicole and I am so happy you found my little space on the internet. Make sure you find me on Instagram or drop a comment here so I can get to know you! A little bit about me… Besides my relationship with Christ, the most important people in my life are: my husband Andrew, my three sons Wesley, Reid and Nate, and our newest bundle of love, Maddie! I love people, comfy clothes, chocolate chips cookies, babies in diapers, watching my kids play sports, writing, and a good glass of red wine. Since becoming a mom almost 8 years ago, my life mantra has been: Embrace the Chaos! With a husband in the medical field, four kids under 8, and lots of moves in between, I needed an outlet to write. The Embracing Chaos blog was started in 2016. Four years later, I launched nicolejacobsmeyer.com as my author hub. When it comes to ministry outside of the home, I have a passion for helping women walk in victory, joy, and faith in the face of trials, sorrow, and suffering. I want to help women understand that God is good no matter what life brings and that it's possible to find lasting joy in Him.

Stand in confidence in Christ | with Amanda Pittman

As part of the Summer inspiration Series with publisher David C Cook and Esther Press, Stephanie welcomes Amanda Pittman to Gospel Spice today to discuss our identity in Christ and how to stand in confidence through the trials of life. We discuss standing strong in God, in humility and truth. Amanda says, "the moment we think we are self-strong, we are in danger." How true! Women are bombarded with narratives about how they should look, behave and live. Relentless and opposing expectations pour 24/7 from social media feeds, entertainment, and peer groups. No woman could possibly meet all these shifting expectations, yet many pour endless energy into the pursuit. And eventually insecurity sets in as she questions everything about herself, including her own worth. Amanda Pittman, author of Stand in Confidence: From Sinking in Insecurity to Rising in Your God-Given Identity (September 6, 2022), has spent her adult life confronting our culture's epidemic of insecurity and self-doubt. In this new book, Amanda unpacks her own journey toward self-confidence rooted in Christ. She offers readers concrete tools for moving forward into wholeness, confidence and God-given purpose. “Society has conditioned us to believe false narratives about who we're supposed to be,” Amanda Pittman explains. “But the rules are always changing, and insecurity drives us to people-please, downplay, settle, and perform. Rather than standing confidently in our identity as daughters of God and co-heirs with Christ, we sink in insecurity. Isn't it time to live in freedom instead?” Stand in Confidence challenges false narratives and offers the tools needed to write a new story. Drawing on her own story of leaving insecurity behind, Amanda Pittman helps readers apply the Four Components of Confidence to their lives: • Clarity – Embrace their identity and define their design • Connection – Connect with God and connect with others • Competency – Develop their ability and expand their capacity • Conviction – Know their responsibility and use their authority Amanda openly recounts how insecurity kept her in relationships she never should have entertained and kept her away from opportunities she should have explored. She describes how difficult it was to exit a highly dysfunctional relationship with her high school boyfriend – and how the unhealth of that longtime relationship convinced her that love was transactional. It took time to restore Amanda's view of herself, reconstruct her view of God, and renew her view of love. But even as she was still recovering and growing, Amanda found an honest, loving relationship with Michael Pittman (now her husband). MORE ABOUT AMANDA PITTMAN Amanda and Michael began sharing their faith and relationship journey via YouTube and social media, and thousands of followers responded enthusiastically to their honest posts. Amanda founded Confident Woman Co. to help women establish their confidence in Christ. Today the ministry offers faith-based content, products, curriculum, retreats, conferences, podcasts, and courses – all designed to empower women to live boldly and confidently for Christ. “Being confident in Christ doesn't mean that you'll never feel moments of insecurity,” Amanda explains in her new book. “Your confidence will be demonstrated not in whether those negative feelings arise, but in how you respond when they do.” Stand in Confidence will be the first title published under the Esther Press imprint (David C Cook), which equips women to walk courageously in the light of God's truth. Marketing plans for this title include national publicity and advertising campaigns. Amanda Pittman is a wife and mother, author, speaker, and entrepreneur. She is the founder of Confident Woman Co., a ministry that equips women to stand confidently upon the finished work of Jesus. Through Confident Woman Co., Amanda hosts retreats, conferences, online events, podcasts, videos and more. She is the author of four books including Stand in Confidence (Sept. 2022). Amanda and Michael Pittman live in Dallas with their children Elijah and Lily.

Is Man Religious by Nature?

Thank you for listening to Will Wright Catholic. Please share it by clicking the blue button below!The Nature of Human BeingsLet's start with… well… everything! Reality exists: both natural and supernatural. The natural realm is everything that we can detect, observe, or measure. This part of the created order includes atoms, molecules, and matter, in general, but it also includes unseen forces like gravity, electromagnetism, and the like. All of this exists in space and time, in a closed system where matter is neither created nor destroyed. But is there more? The “more” would be above nature or “supernatural.” The supernatural is all that exists apart from the material and natural realm. Angels, demons, and the Creator Himself all exist apart from the visible observable universe. Truly, God deserves His own category as the only Necessary Being whereas everything else is contingent on Him.We speak of the things of our material universe as Nature. Here on Earth, nature includes the elements: earth, fire, water, wind, and life. However, there is another usage of the term “nature” which is more important to our conversation today. The nature of a thing is the basic or inherent features of that thing. So, when we speak of human nature, we are not necessarily referring to the things which can be observed in human behavior or external characteristics shared by homo sapiens. Human nature is the basic or inherent features of being human. What is written into the very heart of man? What pertains to the nature of the human person from the beginning, now, and forever? This is what we mean by human nature.All Human Beings Have the Same NatureAll human beings have the same nature. If they did not, then they would not be human. Again, the vital distinction is in the difference between observable behaviors on the one hand and those intrinsic and essential aspects on the other. The former is merely behavior and the latter is the necessary realities of being human. We are human beings, after all, not “human doings.” So, if someone has a mental disorder that causes them to act in a way that is opposed to human nature, they are nonetheless still human. This distinction is important because we hear people speak of such and such phenomena “existing in nature” and drawing the conclusion that the observed phenomena must be “natural.” Quickly falling apart upon examination, this line of thinking leads to great confusion about human nature. A coworker recently brought up an example of this with the phenomenon of geophagy. In certain instances, pregnant women will begin to experience an inordinate desire to consume dirt and clay. The ingestion of this non-food item is compulsive and might derive from a deficiency in iron. At any rate, it is not “normal” or “well-ordered” to eat dirt and clay. Yet, geophagy “exists in nature.” So, is it part of human nature to eat dirt and clay? No. Something is seriously off in this phenomenon. Just because some human beings do certain things or even desire certain things, this does not make it part of human nature.What We Ought to BeBecause all human beings have the same nature, endowed by the Creator, there are certain standards consistent across the entire human race. When we say what a human being essentially is, there is an implication of what human beings ought to be.From before recorded History, human beings have been self-reflective - incidentally, self-reflection and powers of abstraction is an intrinsic part of human nature. In this self-reflection, human beings have interrogated the known and the unknown, within and without themselves. The fundamental questions resound through the ages: who are we? Why are we here? What is the purpose of life? Why is there life at all? Who am I? What is a human being? What does it mean to be a human being? Is there something after death? Do I have a soul? And so on…These questions are universal: in every time and in every place, human beings have voraciously questioned everything. Many of these questions require philosophical investigation and others require scientific examination. But philosophy and science can only get us so far in inquiry. From the beginning, human beings have also relied on the queen of the sciences: theology. Admittedly, theology was not called the “queen of the sciences” until the High Middle Ages. Schools of higher learning used the trivium of grammar, logic, and rhetoric and the quadrivium of arithmetic, geometry, music, and astronomy to investigate the universe - both seen and unseen, within and without. Nevertheless, theology as the study of God and the divine in general could be called religion.What is Religion?Before we can define what religion actually is, we need to understand what we, as human beings, are capable of. Man is made in the image and likeness of God. Being made in the image and likeness of God is to possess a rational soul. Human beings have the ability to know things (intellect) and the ability to choose freely the good (will). Endowed with freedom, man seeks the good and is capable of understanding the ordering of reality, established by the Creator. Given possession of a rational soul, man ardently seeks after reality. The disposition of the soul towards the good, true, and beautiful, in practice, is religion. The word religion has derived diverse meanings over the last few millennia. Cicero seeks religion as deriving from the verb relegere which means “to treat carefully.” On the other hand, the fourth century Christian apologist Lactantius says:“We are tied to God and bound to him [religati] by the bond of piety, and it is from this, and not, as Cicero holds, from careful consideration [relegendo], that religion has received its name (Divine Institutes, IV, xxviii).”Speaking in a Neoplatonic mode, the great St. Augustine in City of God gives a sense of recovering God: “having lost God through neglect [negligentes], we recover Him [religentes] and are drawn to Him.” However, he later leaves behind this idea in favor of Lactantius' view, saying, “Religion binds us [religat] to the one Almighty God.”St. Thomas Aquinas, in the Summa, does not make a decision between the three views but sees them as all valuable: careful consideration, recovering God, and binding oneself. In a general sense, religion is the free choice to subject oneself to God. We are binding ourselves to God and Him to us in the practice of true religion. Are Human Beings Religious? Certainly, some human beings are religious, but would it be proper to say that all human beings are religious? Controversy is perpetual surrounding this question, especially in the modern world. How many times have you heard someone say, “Oh. I'm spiritual, but not religious.” Or perhaps you have heard the usually evangelical Christian idea that religion is opposed to the true practice of faith in Jesus Christ which is a relationship. However, I hope to show by the end of this short article that all human beings are truly religious, at the deepest metaphysical level. The first example of being spiritual and not religious is something that I will get to in a moment. But, let us begin with the second notion of relationship versus religion. If religion is about voluntary subjugation to God and binding ourselves to Him and Him to us, then I would suggest that religion, properly understood, is entirely about relationships. Right relationship with God bears fruit in the right relationship with our neighbor. The practice of true religion is all about relationships. Often, when people levy this rejoinder, it is from a misconception or false view of what religion ought to be.Spiritual, But Not Religious?Now to the notion of spiritual, but not religious. At the core of our being, as human persons, we are religious. This is the fundamental fact of our nature. It is right to say that we are spiritual, but it would be equally correct to say that we are corporeal. We are body and soul. If we were bodies without souls, we would be zombies. And if we were souls without bodies, we would be ghosts. So, our bodily-ness and spiritual-ness are part and parcel of our humanity. Yes, we are spiritual. But how then could we not also be religious? The human heart is made to worship. The notion of worship comes from the Middle English word worthschipe. Literally, it is an amalgamation of the word worth meaning “worthy” or “honorable” and the suffix -ship which means a denotation of a property or state of being. To worship something is to show with the depths of our being, body and soul, what we put worth in. What is worthy to us? This is what we worship. Centering and prioritizing our lives conveys what we worship and bears fruit in our actions.Oxford University professor Roger Trigg said in 2011 that, “We tend to see purpose in the world. We see agency. We think that something is there even if you can't see it… All this tends to build up to a religious way of thinking… If you've got something so deep-rooted in human nature, thwarting it is in some sense not enabling humans to fulfill their basic interests. There is quite a drive to think that religion is private. It isn't just a quirky interest of a few, it's basic human nature.”Professor Trigg hits the nail on the head. Religious thinking is basic human nature. All human beings have a hardwired religious drive. Now, an atheist might say that this is a bio-evolutionary oddity which motivated us in the past but is antiquated. They might say, like Marx, that religion is the opiate of the masses. I would say that the atheist and the marxist are in denial about their own nature and are dismissing as a nuisance the idea that perhaps God is in control. Because what is marxism or atheism if not a deep desire for control over the uncontrollable, for knowledge over the unknowable? Everyone puts worth in something. If they are not worshiping God - who alone is worthy - then that religious drive, essential to human nature, will be directed to something else. The rub is that the new object of worship will always be infinitely less than the Almighty. And so, aiming far below the Way, the Truth, and the Life, man falls prey to his base desires and can never find happiness. The conception of “spiritual, but not religious” does not conform to reality and will always result in the worship of creation rather than the Creator. Our soul, at the deepest level, desires to bind itself to the higher things. If we aim at God, then He will bind us to Himself. If we aim at lesser things, then we will be bound to them, to our detriment and perhaps even our damnation.Human Nature Cannot Be RepressedAny attempt to repress, control, or snuff out human nature in the realm of religion has miserably failed and has always been accompanied by widespread human suffering. In the 20th Century alone, we can look to the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, the Nazi regime in Germany, the later Soviet policies in Russia, the Cultural Revolution in China, and other instantiations of godless Communism and Socialism. Human nature is hardwired into our being at the deepest levels. The human heart will always seek out God and will only be satisfied in Him. As St. Augustine said in the opening of his Confessions, “Our hearts are restless, until they rest in Thee.” Our restless hearts are religious. They want to worship. Who or what are they worshiping? Even for the believer, the exercise is worthwhile: what is the object of our worship, our desire, and our ultimate affection? If the answer is God, then we must beg the Lord for the grace to grow in this. If the answer is anything else, the pruning shears need to spring into action.

Before Dobbs v. Jackson or Roe v. Wade, the government legislated control over Black women's reproduction in America. That started way back in 1662 in Virginia. Tracing this long history with me is Professor Jennifer L. Morgan, author of Laboring Women: Reproduction and Gender in New World Slavery. Centering Black women in today's debates and laws about reproduction and women's rights reveals a long history of racism, capitalism, and slavery. As it turns out, the logic behind Dobbs and the laws following after it starts with early contact between Africans and Europeans and with some of the first Africans to arrive in America. It is centuries of history to untangle and dismantle, but starting the story at the beginning with the often-overlooked history of Black women is a good place to start.

On the episode we will explore: ✔  The work of Joshua Gillis, Neuro-Integrator, and the outstanding results he has been having with world class athletes from the world of ice-hockey, to skiing, and wrestling. ✔ Where his work with "unlocking blocks in the brain" began. ✔ What we should all know about our the evolution of our brain and why movement is critical for "unlocking" our true potential. ✔ An Intro to the Neuro Func APP used to improce sports performance, cognitive abilities, and behavioral intelligence. ✔ How to access the FREE sessions in the APP to try it out. Welcome back to The Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning Podcast, where we cover the science-based evidence behind social and emotional learning (for schools) and emotional intelligence training (in the workplace) with tools, ideas and strategies that we can all use for immediate results. I'm Andrea Samadi, an author, and educator with a passion for learning specifically on the topics of health, wellbeing and productivity, and launched this podcast to share how important an understanding of our brain is to our everyday life and results--whether we are a teacher in the classroom, a student, or in the modern workplace. On today's episode #238, we will be speaking with Joshua Gillis[ii], who is on a mission to spread his groundbreaking knowledge in neuroscience to as many people as possible, and maybe even convince them to become a member of the small but growing, NOWLiving community.  Before we get into WHAT exactly Joshua Gillis has discovered in this field, I've got to say that something about his work stuck out to me when his team contacted me. While preparing for interviews, I want to be sure the topic is in line with our season theme of brain health as it relates to learning, and Joshua's work goes deep into the brain and learning, which I saw with some of his teachers and colleagues who included Glenn Doman (USA), Blythe and Godard (UK) and (I hope I'm getting this one right, as I'm not well versed in Russian) Svetlans Masgutova (RUSSIA). This is quite a powerful list, but the minute I saw Glenn Doman, my mind went back to 1999 when I was working in the seminar industry, and the speaker I worked for, opened the seminar with the work that Glenn Doman was doing in PA, helping children with special needs accomplish the impossible. If you've ever heard my story, in those early days after I left the teaching field, I was still trying to figure out where I was meant to be working, and I would write down anything important that caught my attention when it came to helping young people live up to the potential we know we all have. When the speaker told us about Glenn Doman's work, where we took a young boy named Brendon, who was severely handicapped, and was told he would “just live his life like a vegetable” and with the method of using his brain and movement, they had this young boy up and running (and I forget the time frame) but that's not what was important. It was the fact his life changed 180 degrees from what everyone expected of him. I thought the story was profound enough to write his name and phone number on the first page of my seminar notes, where we I was supposed to be learning about how our mind is connected to our earning potential.  That weekend, I couldn't stop wondering about what made such an impact for that young boy and it wasn't difficult for me to find the notes I jotted down from that seminar. IMAGE 1: My first introduction to the work of Glenn Doman in 1999 led me to purchase all of his books, and raise my two children with the Doman Method. The problem with this #1 Best Selling Parenting Series was there was a huge gap with understanding the brain, or how it works, to allow me to properly use these books. 23 years after first hearing about the Doman Institute, I still have some of his books, but without any training these books and theories remained unused over the years, which to me is a huge waste.  I wonder if Joshua Gillis' work could fill in the blanks of what I didn't understand, so others listening to this podcast, could use these concepts to their advantage, and perhaps Multiply Their Baby's Intelligence[iii] and join Joshua's mission to bridge the gap between theory and practice. Let's learn a bit about Joshua Gillis now that you have an idea of those innovators he has worked and learned with. What Joshua has found, seems to be, the basic coding to unlock our brains to its true and full capacity like I heard about with that young boy Brendon, all those years ago.  His work is all based on the evolution of the nervous system and that our brain's first job is to move the body. The result is a training and therapy system which will offer physical therapy, behavior and learning for children, psychology, endocrinology, men's and women's health with a new more effective and holistic way to resolve these problems and so much more. Joshua has been working 36 years as a therapist, treating over 10,000+ clients, including top athletes like: Former Swedish ice hockey player, Peter Forsberg, who was known for his “on-ice vision and physical play” who was considered one of the greatest players of all-time, as one of NHL's All Time Stars, and Winner of 2 Stanley Cups with the Colorado Avalanche. Peter Forsberg worked with Joshua for Rehabilitation and Increase in Performance and after his treatment he said “I could not even get my foot into the skates before getting the neuro-treatments. After surgery, and physio with the world's best I had given up hope of ever skating again. Thank God I gave it one last try! After only 7 treatments I was skating and two months later back with the Avalanche and a million-dollar contract. This stuff is just unbelievable!” I will put a link to Joshua's top athletes in the show notes, that includes Markus Larsson, a retired Swedish alpine skier who took part in the 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014 winter Olympics who said “From the first treatment, I felt the difference. In a month after the treatments and neurotraining my finishes improved by 10 places to the top 10. Then, after a day of training and treatments with Joshua, I pulled off the impossible, a 5th place in the Olympics at 35 years old.” How this happens, I don't know…just as we still don't understand exactly why when we turn on a light switch, electricity lights up our room, but Joshua has discovered something that “switches on” something in our brain, helping us to overcome where there were once blocks. Let's meet Joshua Gillis and see what we can learn about our brain and body, with an approach to improving the “human condition” that's so interesting, that anyone listening will be moved and touched by his journey where he went from a Ski coach into pre-med and alternative medicine scouring the planet for knowledge living in Sweden, Italy and France, along with his personal struggle to help his two sons which is actually what led him to the creation of this work. I'm hoping he can unlock some of the mysteries of the brain, so we can all take something back to improve our own health, wellbeing and productivity. Welcome Joshua Gillis, thank you for coming on the podcast today. Where have we reached you today? Are you still in Maine? INTRO Q: Joshua, I've got to say I was thrilled to see your work come across my email, when your team reached out to me,  as it took me back over 20 years ago before I was even thinking about the brain and learning and came across some of your colleagues.  Can you take us back to when you began to make a connection with our brain, learning and movement? Where did this journey begin for you? Q1: I'm sure you can see that I'm a huge Glenn Doman fan, and bought all his books when I was pregnant with my first daughter, of course, wanting to Multiply my Baby's Intelligence before she was even born. I can't be the only one who wanted to do everything possible in those early days. How did you meet Glenn Doman and what did you learn from his work? Q1B: What should we know about the origin of our brain and our central nervous system?  Q1C: What should we know about the brain to make it all simple? Q2: So what's behind the levels that you have used in your Neuro Func APP that you have used to improve sports performance, cognitive abilities, and behavioral intelligence? Q3: So what exactly will people be doing at each level in the APP to improve their performance? Q4: Does your APP help us to unlock our blocks through movement at each level? Q5: This next sentence is profound. Especially with the topic I'm covering here on the podcast-helping people to learn how an understanding of their brain can impact productivity and results (in schools, sports and the workplace). You say: “When certain and specific movements are practiced, there is a powerful shift deep within our unconscious mind that positively affects nearly all of what we are; emotional clarity, behavioral stability, intellectual and artistic ability, postural perfection and sports performance.” Can you explain what this means? Q6: What is your current focus/vision for your work? Joshua, Thank you very much for coming on the podcast and sharing your fascinating journey to help us to unlock our brains so we can reach those higher levels of capacity. Is there anything important that we have missed? Final Thoughts When I think back to the beginning of this episode, I was hoping that Joshua would be able to fill in the blanks for what I didn't understand about the brain, but I realized that we don't always need to understand everything. I learned that in order to unlock our potential, movement is critical, and Joshua has figured out the best movements that he has put into 5 levels in his app. I went through each level (you can sign up to access each level for FREE with your email address as well) and what I noticed was that there were some exercises I had recently started doing in physical therapy for neck pain. If you've ever been to physical therapy, you go when you need to recover your muscles from an injury, or recover from an accident or injury, and sometimes the exercises can feel like a waste of time. You do the same motion over and over again. But then, after each session, you express to your therapist whether you feel better or not, and after every session I had attended, I felt an improvement. Before seeing Joshua's app, or the exercises he's been doing with athletes over the  years, I'm not sure I would have believed the power behind it all, until I thought of this one exercise called the “Cat Camel” that he has in the app. If you have something that you would like to work on, I highly suggest trying his app, and see what you notice. I will be having Joshua back on the podcast to take a deeper dive into each of the 5 levels, but until then, try it out, and see if you can use movement, the basic blueprint of your brain, to unlock your potential, like we saw from the athletes he has worked with around the world. I'll see you next week!

This episode is a slightly abridged version of part 1 of the Neuroqueer Joseph series over on The Autistic Liberation Theology podcast. Be sure to visit Laura's podcast for parts 2 & 3 once you've finished this episode! My friend Laura and I explore all the queer + autistic elements of Joseph's story, starting with Genesis 37. Joseph wears makeup and the colorful dress of a princess, toe-walks, and dreams dreams that threaten the status quo — a queer and neurodivergent figure if there ever was one! Why did Joseph's world — and why does ours — view such a person as threatening? What gifts do neuroqueer folk bring to their communities when empowered to do so?

In this conversation, Jacob and Scott talk about what it means to hold space for others – and yourself – in an honest way, and how doing so elicits not only more depth of connection but also a more authentic and heart-centered response. They also discuss the importance of owning our hypocrisy, as Scott shares a story about his own blatant hypocrisy related to podcast reviews and ratings. They take a deep dive into their understanding of the soul, and the importance of connecting to the ever-present peacefulness of that soul-centered place within yourself, while at the same time honoring your very human humanity.

I recently turned 40.Historically speaking, my birthday is always a time of reflection. This year as I entered my 40's - the birthday reflections were on STEROIDS. In the midst of ALLLL my reflecting, there was a very specific and VERY POWERFUL message just for YOU. For decades of my life... I was too afraid to be FULLY myself. I would do anything (and eat anything!) as long as I would go unnoticed. I would camouflage to anyone's liking. Modify myself to fit the 'part' or fit in. ESPECIALLY when it came to food and weight. People's opinions and 'rule following' were my prison. I stifled myself to try to fit into the 'acceptable' boxes I believed I was supposed to fit nicely into... AND because I felt inherently flawed - emotionally eating at the end of the day (in those moments when I was finally by myself) felt like my ONLY escape. NOW... I make the decisions based on what I want for my life (*MY VISION) and what I KNOW works for ME (*True Choice) I love being me. ALL of me. So there's no need to emotionally eat about this, because I am living the life I want to live and being who I want to be. I'm a thought leader. A trailblazer. I'll go first. I'll be different. I'm not afraid to be seen and noticed. AND I refuse to shove any part of me that I LOVE (and have intentionally become) into a box for anybody. NOBODY. There's no price I wouldn't pay for THIS level of confidence and freedom that I get to live my life with NOW. HERE'S WHY THIS MATTERS FOR YOU & YOUR GOALS: So many of you are... Afraid to lose weight if you want to, because of what other people might think. Hesitant, ashamed, embarrassed, or even nervous to claim that weight loss is something you want (*especially the very specific goal that you have in mind for yourself, even though it's really important to you and you think about it all the time) Playing down the goals that are MOST important to you (weight related or not) even though YOU KNOW it's exactly what you want. Feel paralyzed about saying 'no' to things --> and then say 'yes' to these same things purely out of obligation. Even at your own expense. Not OWNING WHO YOU ARE and WANT YOU WANT (*literally) gets in the way of YOU LIVING THE LIFE YOU WANT.Centering someone else's opinion about you more than YOUR OWN OPINION ABOUT YOU will always keep you from SHOWING UP -  ALL OUT - to create the life you want.You're not gonna wanna miss this one.{added note: there's something a bit cosmic + magical about the words I have for you in this particular episode. A gift. And I hope it stokes a flame in your soul for what REALLY IS POSSIBLE}Make sure to listen to my birthday podcast. Click here to listen now.

The Legendary podcaster and composer (but not US Senator) Lindsay Graham is a dear friend of HTDS and an integral part of the podcast's sound. Today, he gets behind the mic with the Prof. to interrogate the oft-repeated adage "those who don't study history are doomed to repeat it." So ... is it true? Centering the conversation around our current HTDS period (Gilded Age and into the Progressive Era) while pulling from various philosophers and thinkers (Hegel, Twain, Churchill, Santayana, and more), Lindsay and Greg dig in. By the way, we're big fans of Lindsay's many podcasts, and Greg has contributed to a few of them as a guest or historical consultant!
