    By Greg Thomas in Cleveland, OH - June 18, 2022 - Just listening to the news, or reading information on the internet… it is obvious that many traditional values are under fierce assault. These include civility, marriage, gender confusion, public school indoctrination, and sinful lifestyles. However, when you think about it… this fierce assault on values is only the effect and not the "cause" of these problems. These attacks are merely a reflection of an assault on something far greater and far more important. What is really under the greatest attack is the 10 Commandments.

When thou shalt enlarge my heart. Yes, the heart is the master- the feet soon run when the heart is free and energetic. Let the affections be aroused and eagerly set on divine things, and our actions will be full of force, swiftness, and delight. God must work in us first, and then we shall will and do according to his good pleasure.

    Laugh till you cry with Not Well Podcast as they discuss everything from speedos to public figure titles on Instagram. Don't miss out on their newest episode – which includes gay commandments that some of you will disagree with. Many people believe that there are seven basic commandments that all LGBTQ+ people should live by. These commandments include: honesty, love, respect, integrity, compassion, self-awareness, and accountability. Each of these principles is essential for anyone who identifies as LGBTQ+, and they can help make everyday life more fulfilling and enjoyable. But who are we kidding? This is not our list of Commandments. We come up with the real list which includes poppers, straight friends and good looking men. Unless you're straight and looking good, in which case, we salute you! We talk about how messed up Christianity is that we believed a 13 year old girl saying she was virgin and then she had the son of god. I mean, how crazy is that really when you think about it? As a result, we also discuss the dangers of religious indoctrination and how it can have serious repercussions for LGBTQ+ people. You know how we get passionate about our christian upbringing how how we felt it was all wrong. We then discuss why Bobby is over pride and Jim can't stand when people have "public figure" on their social media bios. We also want to hear from you. How do you fluff to be ready to put on a speedo? What would jesus do? If you could single out one rule from the LGBTQ+ commandments, what would it be? Leave a comment and let us know!All in all, this episode was really fun and engaging. We love how it dives into some of the more controversial topics that can arise when you're LGBTQ+, but at the same time, we know that a lot of people will disagree with some of our choices. That's okay though! It's always great to have a conversation about these things and to get everyone thinking critically about their own beliefs.#gaypodcast #podcast #gay #lgbtq #queerpodcast #lgbt #lgbtpodcast #lgbtqpodcast #gaypodcaster #queer#instagay #podcasts  #podcasting #gaylife  #pride #lesbian #bhfyp #gaycomedy #comedypodcast #comedy #nyc #614 #shesnotdoingsowell #gays #Notwell #gaychristian #gaypride #gaycomedypodcastSupport the show

    The way we approach an object reveals what we think of it. Consider a child approaching a plate at dinner filled with broccoli versus that same child approaching a plate with dessert on it. So how do we approach the law of God? Or, to ask a more important question: how does God want us to approach His law?   The first step to answering that question is to realize that the moral law is a reflection of God's moral perfection. It gives us an expression of God's character applied to our human experience. Consider that it also expresses God's authority as Law-Giver.   As we consider our approach the the law, we have to be aware of some ditches we can fall into. For example, we can fall into the ditch of divorcing the law and the gospel. We are tempted to put a deep division between the two. But we must realize it was God the Father, as much as God the Son and the Holy Spirit, who delivered the 10 Commandments to Moses. The law and the gospel are not opposed, though they do have different roles in redemption.   The Grace of Law: A Study of Puritan Theology: https://www.amazon.com/Grace-Law-Puritan-Theology-Puritanism/dp/1877611638 The Law and the Gospel by Ernie Reisinger: https://press.founders.org/shop/the-law-and-the-gospel/ Want to listen to The Whole Counsel on the go?

    Outside the 10 Commandments, I believe submission is the most important command God gave us. Because He repeated this again and again throughout the Bible. I thought the worst sin a king committed in Israel was when David murdered Uriah, the husband, to take his wife Bathsheba in an act of adultery. But these were sins God eventually forgave. But when Saul did not submit to the instructions of Samuel, God removed him as king. In 1 Samuel 19, God said that insubordination is the same as idolatry, a sin that is very offensive to the Lord. Why do we struggle with submission? I am discovering the root of our struggle is our lack of faith. Simply put, faith is to trust and obey God. We have a hard time obeying this command when we believe that the leader He placed over us have flaws. When we do not submit, we are telling God that He is not in control and does not know how to choose the leaders we should follow. Through this message,I hope you understand the blessings that will come to those who obey. May you live a blessed and fruitful life. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/dodongcacanando/message

    Christ [the second member of the God family] has a role to fulfill within that God family. He assumes the role of a Son while the first member of the God family assumes the role of Father. The Son is as much all powerful, all knowing, and eternal as the Father… yet he takes on the subordinate role. He is a servant, He is a Son, He is a messenger.The Son does not consider equality with God the Father a matter to be contested. They work together as one… yet they are unique.The Father and the Son have big plans for you… who are to be part of the first resurrection. When Christ returns He will give you a new role to fulfill: you will be His bride, you will wield authority [kings], you will teach on matters eternal and spiritual [Priest], and you will dispense mercy and punishment [judges].All of these are roles which have responsibilities… and boundaries.For now we are like school children. In the flesh we are given simple tasks intended to teach big lessons. Faithfulness in small matters indicates readiness to take on the weightier matters that will be given to us when Christ returns.One of these simple lessons is to accept, and operate within the roles God has given us based on gender… And to do so in a Christ like way. Today, I would like to discuss how marriage, family, and gender help us better understand God.Keep Reading »

    A fence around the people's house. When I heard that spoken into my spirit, I was instantly taken to two pictures.  The first picture I saw was of our capital in Washington DC, surrounded by barbed wire and Constantine wire. This is the people's house to be accessed by ordinary folk like you and me. This is where we can come to for help in the time of need and wisdom and guidance. Yet those inside the people's house have taken authority over and away from the people and told them they could not enter anymore. Essentially, they say we will do your thinking and tell you how to live. And then, the second picture came to me because God speaks through natural things and gives spiritual direction and wisdom. This picture is of the church, the body of Christ, or we might see the people's house. In many ways, some of the same things are happening in this "people's house" as in Washington DC. The leaders in charge have subliminally and sometimes, on purpose, put up a fence that keeps the people in their place so that leadership can stay in control. We are not talking about the inner workings or function of a church organization or building. We know that any organization must have someone who gives directions or orders and sets the pace, and that's only normal in the function of any healthy, sound organization. What I'm referring to today is the revelation that comes from the father, which should go directly to the Saint who has the Holy Spirit in him to teach them. Unfortunately, the body of Christ has been trained to sit in the pew and be taught by someone who supposedly has gone to the Lord to hear. To me, that sounds like the old testament covenant, and that sounds like Moses when he brought down the 10 Commandments from the mountain. In the New Testament covenant, we've been invited to go to the mountain in here God for ourselves. But can I be trusted to hear God correctly without a seminary education? I think God thinks so because the scriptures tell us that he chooses people that are unlikely to be selected by those in charge of the group. So what's the word today. You have been invited into the holy of holies by the blood of Jesus Christ so that you can have a face-to-face relationship with her father. And when you do, you will receive direct instruction, direction, encouragement, and purpose from his lips. Does that make the educated leaders nervous? You better believe it. That's what Jesus came to set us free from, folks.

    Second Presbyterian Church Sermons

    Big Idea: The Westminster Confession of Faith concludes from Scripture that while repentance is not a cause for salvation, “it is of such necessity to all sinners, that none may expect pardon without it” (15.3; Lk. 13:3-5; Ac. 17:30-31). If there is no possibility of salvation and pardon without repentance, it is critical for us to know what the marks and motives of true repentance are as they are alluded to in our text. Marks of True Repentance The marks of true repentance are alluded to with three brief lines in vv. 12, 13. Confession: God says that we must “return to him with all our heart.” Seeking pardon for sin begins with naming sins as you recognize them and calling them what God does in his word. The WCF says that “men ought not to content themselves with a general repentance, but it is every man’s duty to endeavor to repent of his particular sins particularly” (15.5; Ps. 19:13; Lk. 19:8; 1 Ti. 1:13-15). Apply: One way to practice this is to use the Westminster Shorter Catechism’s questions on the Ten Commandments and take one commandment per day and confess how you have broken what it forbids and failed to perfectly do what it requires. Contrition: True repentance is also marked by contrition. “Fasting, weeping, mourning” are all signs of a truly broken heart. The Confession says that when a man comes to realize the “filthiness and odiousness of his sins,” he will grieve and hate them. There must be an emotional revulsion at sin (Je. 31:18-19). Furthermore, the Bible says that such emotion should be in view of its offense against a holy God, not just regret over the consequences (2 Co. 7:9-11). Apply: One way to feel the weight of your sin is to confess it to another person. While the sin is against God first and foremost, the pain of seeing a loved one's face as you admit your wrong is a helpful step in breaking the cycle of repeated sin. Change: Finally, true repentance involves conversion or change. I don’t mean that every time a Christian sins, he must be converted anew. I mean that true repentance means turning away from that sin, even if it means you are never done battling it the rest of your life. The Catechism says that repentance includes to “endeavor after new obedience” (Ps. 119:6, 59, 106; Lk. 1:6; 2 Kg. 23:25). If you easily and quickly return to the sins you have confessed, then the Bible says you are like a dog returning to its vomit. While true repentance does not ensure that you will never fall again to the same sin, it will keep you from returning to it quickly or easily. Motivation for True Repentance Just as there are marks of true repentance, we need a powerful motivation to wake us out of our sin and move us towards repentance. God’s mercy: The surest incentive to produce true repentance will be the grace of God in Jesus Christ, which Joel clearly declares in v. 13. It may sound strange to your ears that I would say Joel declares the gospel of Jesus Christ, but that is precisely what he does when he quotes Exodus 34:6, 7, “he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity.” This was God’s answer to Moses’ request, “Show me your glory” in Exodus 33:18. This is made even more compelling by the fact that God revealed himself this way after the Israelites had built a golden calf to worship instead of him. God’s gift: Another motivation to turn to a gracious God is that he gives repentance to those who ask for it. That means, true repentance is not something we can conjure up on our own. It must be given to us by God’s grace (see Acts 11:18 and 2 Tim. 2:25). Practically, this means that when God makes you aware of your sin, by whatever means, you must cry out to him with the assurance that he is the gracious and compassionate God who grants repentance to those who ask him for it. Jesus’s repentance: Now if these promises of Scripture are not sufficient to motivate your heart to turn to the Lord with assurance that he will grant you repentance unto life, then you must think on the active righteousness of your Savior. Jesus’s public ministry began with his coming to John the Baptist for baptism. It is initially confounding why the son of God would need to come to John the Baptist for baptism, especially when we remember that John’s was a baptism of “repentance.” Why would one who never sinned need to undergo a baptism of repentance? John the Baptist effectively asked the same question, and Jesus responded that it was “necessary to fulfill all righteousness.” In other words, undergoing a baptism of repentance fulfilled the active righteousness that we needed to be saved. Not only did Jesus have to fulfill all the Commandments in our place, he even had to repent in our place. Discussion Questions: Which of the marks of true repentance was most challenging or convicting to you? What is one way you can apply the marks of true repentance to your relationship with God this week? Which of the motives for true repentance was most compelling to you? What is one way you can respond to the good news of this passage today?

    The Marketing Agency Leadership Podcast

    Robin Raj, Founder and Executive Creative Director, Citizen Group (San Francisco, CA) Inspired by Marc Gobé's book, Citizen Brand:  10 Commandments for Transforming Brand Culture in a Consumer Democracy, Robin Raj, Founder and Executive Creative Director at Citizen Group, started his agency in 2006 to work with entities committed to meaningful and measurable pro-social impact. His agency's proposition is that organizations build brand value when they “walk their talk” and operate in ways that enhance society for their employees, shareholders, and consumers.  Robin notes that the rise of social media has created a window on organizational operations . . . companies have a harder time projecting a “corporate mirage” that “everything is okay” when people can now see what is going on, assess practices, and ask the tougher questions. Clients today include for-profit companies, nonprofit organizations, municipalities, cities, and trade associations. Working with Amnesty International and other NGOs while he was at Chiat/Day early in his career, Robin became aware of two operational economies: “the Moneyball ad world, where money is thrown around (half a million for a 30-second spot)” and the $15k budget for creating a nonprofit PSA environment. Gobé's book identifies the trend toward citizen branding as a convergence between these two economies. At his agency's inception, Robin worked with Walmart's sustainability effort and explored how big-box retail stores needed to change their operational practices to support sustainability, creating “a race to the top for brands to reutilize, recycle, (and produce) less waste” and a model for future initiatives with other organizations. Brands get a lift from doing the right thing, he says, both for society and for the environment. In his early adulthood, Robin says he didn't know that people had human rights. He says the 30 articulated in the United Nation's post World War II Universal Declaration of Human Rights made a big impact on him. Citizen Group is involved in a diverse range of projects. It is working with: Sports apparel retailer Lids on a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiative (They Gave Us Game) to recognize and honor early Black sports leagues.  A group called Leading Age on the Keep Leading Life campaign to showcase the variety of caregiving and expert services available to people who are aging. With close friend Jordan Harris, Robin shares a concern about the need to promote electric vehicles. Citizen Group commissioned a study to investigate the feasibility of shading California's 4,000 mile aqueduct system with solar canopies to reduce evaporation, conserve water, reduce algal growth, and generate power. Annual water savings for a complete end-to-end system were estimated at 63 billion with the solar array along the aqueduct system's existing utility corridors rather than taking up working land. A spinoff company, Solar AquaGrid, will be working Audubon Society to study environmental impacts and with the state and irrigation districts to plan the first demonstration project, and break ground on the pilot (proof-of-concept) project this fall. Robin can be found on his agency's website at citizengroup.com. ROB: Welcome to the Marketing Agency Leadership Podcast. I'm your host, Rob Kischuk, and I am joined today by Robin Raj, Founder and Executive Creative Director at Citizen Group based in San Francisco, California, with some other fascinating interests as well. Welcome to the podcast, Robin. ROBIN: Good to be here, Rob. Thank you. ROB: Excellent to have you. Why don't you start off by telling us about Citizen Group, and what is the firm's superpower? What are you all known for? What do you do well? ROBIN: Well, I started Citizen Group in 2006, and it was really inspired by a book of the same name called Citizen Brand. This is where I can give a shout-out to an author by the name of Marc Gobé. I was really moved by the book, written in about 2003. The thesis of the book is: sooner or later, all brands will have to behave as citizen brands. That really caught me because it was like the spear in the chest moment in terms of the societal challenges we face and the responsibility brands and corporations and civil society have. It also predated, presaged, the rise of social media that has made the rise of citizen brands possible. We expect more from the brands we purchase and are loyal to. If they're not walking their talk, it can be a liability versus when they can really take the initiative and operate in a way that enhances society for their employees, for their shareholders, for their consumers. Then that builds brand value. That was the proposition. So I started Citizen Brand, and we've been working since that time with a variety of entities, for-profit companies, nonprofit orgs, municipalities, cities, sometimes, trade associations. But what they all have in common is some commitment to have pro-social impact that is meaningful and measurable. ROB: Let's pull into that a little bit. Give us maybe an example, if you can, of a client, of the sort of work you've done together, of what this looks like in action. ROBIN: Well, in the early going, roundabout 2005-2006, I had the opportunity to work with Walmart's sustainability effort. Those were two words that didn't necessarily go together at the time. It raised a lot of legitimate skepticism. But in fact, under the tenure of their CEO at the time, Lee Scott, they really saw the future as it pertains to big box retail and how they would have to change their practices, be it in terms of packaging, creating a packaging scorecard – they created more of a race to the top for brands to reutilize, recycle, less waste. And many other initiatives. In fact, they formed 13 sustainability committees in their transportation, their energy, their seafood. That's been the model. I've also done a lot of work with what is now called the Great Sports Alliance, but it started with the nonprofit NRDC and the interest on the part of professional sports – the venues, the arenas, the teams – adopting sustainable practices, again, throughout their supply chain. Energy, waste, water, transportation, how they procure goods. That story needs to radiate through their internal supply chain to their external stakeholders to their consumers. So having meaningful initiatives that then you can start to develop stories that really show the impact and the lift that brands can get from doing the right thing – that's the common denominator. And those were two stories, ongoing, that started around the time we started Citizen. ROB: That's early, and I feel like some of that has not even arrived yet. Something I feel like we're starting to hear a little bit about is measuring the environmental impact of a business and the different layers of measurement. You're probably the expert on this and not me, but some people will say, “All of our power consumption is green energy.” It's like, okay, but – you mentioned the supply chain, you mentioned suppliers, you mentioned up and down the organization. So outside of the stick that may be coming on that, whether it's in public markets or whether it's regulatory, how do you get businesses to think about the carrot when in their own initial reaction they might say, “We do the right things here,” and it's true in maybe the first or second order effects, but when you get to the third order effects, there's a lot more to work on? ROBIN: No doubt there is. And it can be challenging. But creating an initiative that you can build the sociopolitical will for, and then building on that, creates the momentum. Creating a coalition of the willing that this is the trajectory that the company or the organization wants to take is fundamental. And it's not just environmental, by the way; it's social impact, fundamentally. ROB: Yeah, which now we have acronyms around, again. But there's a material difference, I think, between – you can check a box, you can have an ESG statement, you can have committees. It's something else entirely, I think, to not just have a committee and to actually execute. How do you think about ensuring that those committees, that those initiatives have meat to them and are not just window dressing or greenwashing or whatever else we want to call it? ROBIN: So much of it is susceptible to greenwashing, and perception is a whole other thing in reality between half-empty and half-full. Walmart took a lot of spears early on, but people have seen the credibility that has come from meaningful adoption of practices. And it's happening across the corporate world, albeit not fast enough. I'll give you a case in point. There was a vote taken yesterday on compulsory board diversity – in other words, more women, more people of color on boards – struck down because, ironically, it was perceived as discriminatory. [laughs] Here in California, where we lead, we've gone in recent years from like 17% to some 30% women on corporate boards. That's a good gain, but it ain't anywhere near 50%. We're a country that doesn't like regulation. It's something I struggle with a lot because we can talk a good game about law and order, but law and order requires rules of the road, and it requires a well-governed society to be a healthy, functional society. In the meantime, corporations run the roost. The common good is crippled under the weight of corporate good, which quickly can curdle into corporate bad. I'm talking about Big Oil, Big Ag, Big Tobacco, Big Plastic – something I'm very concerned about. That implicates Big Beverage, the Coca-Colas of the world, the plastic, the fossil fuel industry, that has a responsibility to take care of the crap they put out there. Not to mention the downstream health effects. So, you need to look at it all, and we don't have claim to the answers writ large, but we take on initiatives where there's bounds and outcomes that we can point to. ROB: Right. Sounds like you've got a lot of work to do, is what it sounds like. ROBIN: There's no shortage of work for all of us to do. ROB: That's right. ROBIN: I guess it may sound kind of schoolmarm-ish, but I really believe that – we talk about the experience economy and this and that economy; what we need right now is the responsibility economy. It's time for grownups to be grown up. ROB: Robin, you did mention the genesis of the firm. Let's talk for a moment, though, about the pre-genesis of the firm. How did you decide to start in the first place? You've mentioned the inspiration, you've mentioned the book, but what made you jump off the cliff and start Citizen Group in the first place, coming from where you were? It's not always the easiest way to live. ROBIN: No, it was a reckoning, but it was a convergence that I'm really grateful for. My story was I came up as a copywriter, a writer. Came out of journalism, music. Went into advertising and had the privilege to work at some excellent shops – Hal Riney here in San Francisco and ChiatDay. As a writer and creative director, learning the potency of storytelling, visually and verbally, in short form commercials, and even pre-internet, before we had branded content – but it was still getting you to read the printed page, telling a story on television. I had done a lot of work since the 1980s when I was in New York at ChiatDay with Amnesty International, a leading human rights organization. I got exposed to Amnesty's work because of the rock events they were putting on at the time – the likes of Springsteen and Sting and Peter Gabriel doing world tours, promoting this concept of human rights. As a twenty-something, I didn't know from human rights that we have human rights, and there's 30 of them that are articulated in the International (sic., Universal) Declaration of Human Rights created after World War II. It really struck me. I continued to do work on behalf of Amnesty and other NGOs, and I realized that two economies were operating. There was the Moneyball ad world, where money is thrown around. Half a million for a 30-second spot was not an uncommon thing at that time. And you might have $15k to put against creating a PSA on behalf of a nonprofit org. Really two different economies. And what was more important just didn't follow in terms of where we place our value. The Citizen Brand book really said there's a convergence going on here. Like I said, I had no idea that a few years later, the rise of social media would accelerate it to such a degree that companies had to walk their talk. They couldn't simply put on a corporate mirage and pretend everything was okay; people were going to look more closely at their practices and interrogate, in a healthy way. And that created the impetus for what we see more of today. ROB: You've been doing this thing for a little while. What are some of the lessons you've learned in the process of building the firm? What are some things you might go back and tell yourself to do differently if you had that chance to talk to yourself? ROBIN: Lessons learned. I might've applied more focus to social impact earlier, even though I've been doing it for a while now. I think about years – I won't say wasted. They were not wasted. Great experiences, and learning the craft of advertising is part of my skillset. But having the lightbulb go off sooner in terms of applying more of my working years to making a difference in terms of social outcome is something that if I could rewind the clock, I would put more years in that quadrant than the fun and games I had when I was youthful and indiscreet. [laughs] ROB: [laughs] You wouldn't have been as youthful and indiscreet if you had done otherwise. But I hear you. There's those corners we turn where we realize in some way or another – we get more serious; we discover a path that we can run well on, and we certainly wish we had found it sooner, had started that impact sooner, because we get so much better as we keep going. So I completely understand that. As we mentioned at the top, you are a man of many talents and many thoughts and many ideas. Something that I wasn't really aware of that you mentioned was the Solar AquaGrid. Tell us about that. I don't think those words naturally go together in most people's minds, so unpack this for us. What's going on here? It's intriguing but momentarily confusing, and I think it'll all make sense through your words. ROBIN: Yeah. One of my closest friends and dearest collaborators, Jordan Harris, we've done a lot of work together for Rock the Boat and other social causes in relation to promoting the rise of EVs, the EV revolution. It was his genesis – we both travel up and down the state, from Northern California to Southern California, seeing these open aqueducts that convey our water, and year on year, the increasing drought we have here in California. It got him scratching his head because he lives part of his time in France, where the canals are tree-shaded. They're tree-lined and shaded canals, whereas here our canals are open and exposed, and we couldn't help but think: how much water are we losing each year in terms of evaporative loss? Because heat rises. ROB: How much? ROBIN: Well, we commissioned a study. We started a project first at Citizen to commission a study. We sought out the best researchers we could find, and they're based in UC Merced, which is the home of University of California- UC Solar and UC Water. We commissioned a study that said up to 63 billion gallons of water could be saved annually if all 4,000 miles of California's canal system, aqueduct system, were covered with solar canopies. And many other compounding advantages, because when you cover the canals, you're producing obviously clean energy, renewable energy that can be used locally by the communities. We're going to need a lot more renewable energy on tap if we are going to shift towards an EV-driven economy. And then there's the avoided land costs, because rather than taking working lands, farmlands, to put solar farms, solar arrays, why not have these existing aqueducts, these existing utility corridors do double duty for us? The more we got into it, we discovered that there can be reduced maintenance costs because the solar shade over the open canals, the open rivers, reduces aquatic weed growth. So there's less dredging up of the algae underneath. And it has waterfall implications, rather than dumping more chemicals into the water. Long story not so short, one thing led to another and we started to examine holistically all of the potential advantages of such deployments. We developed a company, a spinoff that is called Solar AquaGrid, where we're consulting with the state and working directly with irrigation districts – most notably with Turlock Irrigation District in the Central Valley – planning the first demonstration project. We were successful in getting state funds to do pilot. So we expect to break ground in the fall. I'm quite excited about that because now we can really put these premises to the test. The whole idea is to study in order to scale, because you only gain the advantages of this idea, a big idea, a rather obvious idea – we weren't the first to come up with it – but now we're on a path where we are very fortunate to be able to study and build on the findings. ROB: California is a big state, lots of people, lots of opinions; are there any particular groups you're concerned about having concerns about this? Are there impacts on wildlife? Are there impacts on other things that people would worry about? It probably can be mitigated, probably a net positive, but what's the group that's going to fret about these? ROBIN: We talk about that a lot. We are inviting naysayers to come with their questions because the whole purpose is to interrogate this proposition and learn, where are there holes? We want to be mindful not to replace one problem and create others. That's not our intention. We set Solar AquaGrid up as a for-benefit company that is predicated on public, private, academic cooperation. To that end, you raised the issue of wildlife; we have enlisted Audubon Society as a research partner because we do want to learn, what are the effects, the unforeseen potential consequences of covering large swaths of the canal? So we're going to learn all this. If you want to do another podcast in about – call it 24 or 36 months, we'll have more to talk about. ROB: That'll be fascinating. The next thing that comes to my mind also is, you talked about France, you talked about their waterways. You get into some interesting questions. They have waterways. They're tree-shaded, so you could cover them with solar panels, but the trees are going to make not as much solar. Is it potentially beneficial enough to where you take down trees to put the solar over it? Because the trees are there, they keep it shaded somewhat, but it's still uncovered. It's still evaporative. ROBIN: Beautiful. There's beauty in complexity. These are the questions in terms of net positives and net losses regarding, in that case, biodiversity. By the way, we here in the U.S. are not the first to deploy solar arrays over canals. It was first done in Gujrat, India, where there are projects we've actually gone to school on and have learned from those past deployments – both what to do and what not to do. ROB: That's fascinating. We have a business partner whose primary office is directly in Gujrat, so I am familiar with it. I have looked at it. In their case, they chose to set up there because what I've learned is that India's all one time zone, and Gujrat is the farthest west you can get, just about, so you get the best overlap with the U.S. if you're there. So that was interesting. We ended up alongside an outsource team, and then we started asking why they were there, and that turns out to be the why. ROBIN: I did not know that. That's cool. ROB: I imagine the same thing applies to – I think China's also on one time, so who knows where that leads. But speaking to your journey, speaking to Citizen Group, speaking to the type of work that you do – we've talked about some things already that you're looking forward to, but what's coming up for Citizen Group? What's coming up for the type of work you do that is exciting for you? What else is next, beyond what we've already spoken about? ROBIN: It's the range of projects, the diversity of them, that makes it fun. Challenging and fun. There's so many ways to make impact, and there's new ideas to think about every day. But one of the projects that has been exciting this spring is in the area of – it goes by another acronym, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. The sports apparel retailer Lids has developed an initiative to recognize and honor the history of the early Black leagues: the Negro Baseball League, the original Harlem Globetrotters, what was called the Black Fives; before there was the NBA, there were the Black Fives. These were leagues and teams in the era of racial segregation. These are the players that invented the modern game. In fact, the name of the campaign that we've developed is called “They Gave Us Game.” It's been a blast because I'm a sports fan, particularly basketball, and going back, the whole tree of influences in terms of – much like music, how every generation is influenced by the generation previous, and how the moves and skills developed in one era that proved successful and now you can see in the game of our players today. That's been fun. So they've come up with this apparel collection called They Gave Us Game. We've also been working in the area of services for those among us who are aging. Which is all of us, right? But there are more Americans that are living longer, and as a result, there's more services available that most of us don't necessarily recognize the variety of caregiving and expert services. So we've been working with a group called Leading Age to create a campaign called Keep Leading Life that showcases the range of services available to people. ROB: Got it. We'll look forward to those things as well. Robin, when people want to find and connect with you and Citizen Group, where should they go to find you? ROBIN: We have a website. It's called citizengroup.com. ROB: That's a good website. That's easy to remember. Very appropriate. Thank you so much for coming on the podcast, for all the work you're doing for all of us, and for sharing a little bit about it along the way. Grateful to hear your journey. ROBIN: Thanks for your interest. It was fun talking to you. ROB: Excellent. Have a wonderful day. Take care. ROBIN: Take care. Thanks. ROB: Thank you for listening.

    In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were given one rule to follow. Between their exile from Eden and the days of Moses, what law did they have to obey? Careful readings of Scripture reveal they had the same moral law of God that was codified in the 10 Commandments. John Snyder and Steve Crampton spent some time on this reality last week. This week builds upon that reality by focusing on the fact that God rightfully commanded obedience to His moral law from all people at all times. This include us under the New Covenant. This does not denigrate the freedom and liberty Jesus Christ purchased through His obedient life and death. Quite the opposite. By understanding Jesus' relationship to the law, we know how to walk close with and have true intimacy with God. This understanding helps us see the moral law as indispensably beautiful and a treasure of indescribable glory.
