Episode 2223: Frm Senator Hank Sanders ~ A Fresh Look @ the History & Importance of Farming NOW!

CNN, Attorney, Senator, MentorIn The Early Twentieth Century, there were nearly a Million Black Farms, In the 2021, there are less that 1.4%, According to McKinsey.com "Achieving peer-level economic performance could generate billions in value for the agriculture industry."Hank Sanders was one of of the Lead Attorney's in the  Pigford vs. Glickman Litigation. He served as one of three lead counsel in the nationally known $1.2 billion Black Farmers Discrimination Litigation. Gardens being revisited by Millennials, Gen Z & Green Energy Enthusiasts, Gardens  are being grown vertically in Kitchens, Gardens, on Roof Tops of Building, Homes & Students being Encouraged/Inspired to grow their own Food for Personal use or b as a Business, this skill is a rare Profession. In the 17th thru Early 20th Century in America, Most all People came from the Family Farms.Hank speaks about his upbringing & a bit about he importance of the lawsuit to help Black Farmers. In a 2010 article by Ralph Paige, who was Executive Director of the Federation of Southern Cooperatives/Land Assistance Fund at the time, he wrote: “When President Abraham Lincoln created the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in 1862 he referred to it as the ‘People's Department.' The problem is that its services have never been available to ‘all' the people.” Although, with the Clinton and Obama administrations, efforts had been made to correct discriminatory problems at the USDA. It's an unfortunate fact, however, that the USDA's policies and behavior have been marred by rampant discrimination. This is why Black farmers filed a 1997 lawsuit against the USDA that focused on discrimination in the administration of its farm programs in the 1980s and into the 1990s.There were two phases of the lawsuit. One was filed under the Clinton administration and the second phase for late filers was settled under the Obama administration.  The litigation, referred to as Pigford vs. Glickman (now Pigford vs. Vilsack) was named after Tim Pigford, a Black farmer in North Carolina, and the then Secretary of Agriculture, Dan Glickman. Tom Vilsack, in the second phase, was the Secretary of Agriculture under the Obama administration. It was settled in 1999, and more than 15,000 Black farmers obtained relief for the discrimination they experienced at the hands of the USDA. But the settlement itself triggered such an outpouring of pent-up frustration and demands for justice that more than 11 years later the case was still ongoing.Senator Henry “Hank” Sanders is the second of 13 children born to Ola Mae and Sam Sanders of Baldwin County, Alabama.  He challenged the twin obstacles of poverty and racism to: graduate from Douglasville High School, Talladega College, and Harvard Law School; establish a law practice; and serve as the first African American State Senator from the Alabama Black Belt.  He is married to Faya Ora Rose Toure, formerly Rose M. Sanders, and they have three children by birth, four by foster relationship, and many by heart.​In 1971, Sanders began what became Chestnut, Sanders, Sanders, Pettaway and Campbell, LLC.  At one time, it was the largest Black law firm in Alabama and one of the ten largest in the country.  His law practice is one of service: helping poor and Black people save their lands, protecting people's constitutional rights, challenging corporate abuse, and helping build strong governments to serve all people.  As a community person, Sanders has helped found and build many organizations and institutions, including the following:  Alabama New South Coalition, where he currently is President Emeritus; 21st Century Youth Leadership Movement; Alabama Lawyers Association; Black Belt Human Resources Center; McRae Learning Center; the National Voting Rights Museum and Institute; the Slavery and Civil War Museum; C.A.R.E. (Coalition of Alabamians Reforming Education); the Selma Collaborative; the Bridge Crossing Jubilee; WBMZ-105.3 FM Radio Station; and more. In 1983, Sanders was elected to the Alabama Senate, where he champions issues affecting education, children, health care, women, tax reform, constitutional reform and more.  For 16 years, he served as Chairman of the Finance and Taxation Education, which handles the multi-billion dollar state education budget.As part of his accountability, Sanders writes a weekly column entitled Senate Sketches, which is published in various newspapers, on the Internet, and in other publications. He has a self-published book entitled, Take a Walk in My Shoes, which is a compilation of selected Sketches.  In 2004, he published his first novel, Death of a Fat Man.  He speaks widely, especially to young people.  His hobbies are reading, writing, and sports.  He considers his most significant contribution to be his work with and for our youth.2021 All Rights ReservedJoin Me on ~ iHeart Radio @ https://tinyurl.com/iHeartBASSpot Me on Spotify: https://tinyurl.com/yxuy23baAmazon Music ~ https://tinyurl.com/AmzBAS

Hi WitchesThis episode starts off with a book review for The Sin Eater written by Megan Campisi - a witchy fiction book and we delve into the historical Sin Eater tradition. We also have the wonderful Kirsty on the podcast today who is the creator of Mindfully Crafted which blends her lifelong passion for craft with a keen interest in mindfulness practices. Inspired by folklore and the stories our ancestors would have shared while stitching together; among the kits you'll find selkies, deities and symbolism connecting us to the divine feminine. Each kit contains an affirmation to work with as you stitch to help infuse your mindful intention into your art. Unlike traditional embroidery patterns, the focus is not in perfecting the image but in embracing mistakes making the experience an act of self-love and compassion. Just like so many practices within witchcraft stitchcraft is alchemy. Its our way as witches of taking the ordinary and making it magickal.Traditional Spell of Nine KnotsBy knot of one, the spells begunBy knot of two, it cometh trueBy knot of three, thus shall it beBy knot of four, 'tis strengthened moreBy knot of five, so may it thriveBy knot of six, the spell we fix,By knot of seven, the stars of heavenBy knot of eight, the hand of fateBy knot of nine, the thing is mineFind Kirsty over on Instagram - @mindfullycraftedEtsy - https://www.etsy.com/shop/mindfullycraftedkitsEmail - sewmindfullycrafted@gmail.comFind Kirstys podcast here - https://open.spotify.com/show/4lHPTOICgDfVS3pOp7YjVs?si=2525aef6a74a45d1Books I reference in our chat regarding the poppets are Entering Hekate's Garden by Cyndi Brannen and Wellness Magick by Sophie L Robinson Please join me in supporting creative beautiful small witchy businesses this Yule but through the rest of the year - these business owners do happy dances when we make a purchase, not like our big conglomerates.

Romans 3:23 -24 & John 3:16 To prepare for Christmas, we need to understand why Jesus' birth is such a big deal. To begin to grasp how important it is, we will rewind back to the Garden. I understand there are a variety of ages and backgrounds who are listening so I have tried to keep it age appropriate for most families. We learn about: 1. Adam & Eve sinning & how that affects us. 2. We all need Jesus and His grace. Grace is a gift, not earned. 3. Sin separates us from God. We are made right with God by being made free from sin through Jesus Christ. ***** We will not discuss Hell in this episode. Hell is biblical and should be discussed in your family when it's appropriate.

133: Relationships - The Back Story to the Christmas Story

You Were Made for This

Relationships are the back story to the Christmas story. The cast of characters interacting with each other gives us role models to follow in our relationships this Christmas season. Follow along as we learn how to do it right from a key supporting actor in this most important story. The problem with Christmas Here we are on the first of December, and I've got Christmas on my mind. I bet some of you do, too. One of my Christmas memories that resurfaced recently is the time years ago when the pastor of the church we were attending didn't preach anything at all about the Christmas story, until the last Sunday before Christmas. And even then it was just a tip of the hat with some cursory acknowledgment of the event. We didn't even sing any of the beautiful Christmas carols people have sung for centuries. I was disappointed. Something was missing. Yet in some ways I could understand the pastor. For several years I facilitated a mastermind group for pastors and they talked about how challenging it was to preach sermons about Christmas. It was hard to come up with something new, something creative, something they and others have not already said.I spoke about this in episode 80, A Christmas Gift of Silence. Imagine you're 50 years old and have been preaching since you were 25, that's 25 Christmas sermons. And not just Christmas Day, or the Sunday before, but all of December. 4 times 25 is 100 Christmas sermons. A good math problem for a 3rd-grade homeschooler. I can see why pastors might find it hard to preach about Christmas if they feel they have to come up with something fresh and creative. Relationships are the back story to the Christmas story In my view though, Christmas is not something to be creative about. Hip-hop, rap, or bluegrass Christmas carols just ruin it for me. Be creative about Lent, but please, not Christmas. If I were a pastor, I would preach about the relationships we see in the back story to Christmas story. They are the backstory to the main story of Christmas, Jesus entering the human race to reconcile all of us to himself. That's what I would do if were a pastor. Maybe that's why the offers to be one have not exactly poured in (or maybe they don't have my address or phone number). You could make a case that the back story to Christmas starts in the Garden of Eden, where the coming of Jesus is foretold in Genesis 3:15. But for our purposes, we'll jump in where the apostle Luke picks things up closer to the actual birth of Christ. In leading up to the main story of Jesus' birth, there is an interesting cast of characters who illustrate relationship principles we can all benefit from. Things that could get us through the holidays in good spirits. Lessons about relating to each other, relating to our own self, and most importantly, relating to God. So that's what we'll be doing today, and for the rest of the weeks leading up to Christmas. Stay tuned to give a listen. The cast of characters in the Christmas story From Luke's gospel, where we find the most detail of the Christmas story, we see references to 7 individual people, 2 separate angels, a large group of townspeople, a small group of shepherds, an army of angels, and of course, Jesus as a baby. Quite a cast of characters. No wonder the Christmas story was the subject of so many grade school plays in years gone by; the whole school could have a part. Zechariah For today though, Let's just focus on one character. I'm going to go with Zechariah. From the first chapter of Luke's gospel, we know that Zechariah is A Jewish priest Righteous in God's eyes, “careful to obey all the Lord's commandments and regulations” Old, married to an old wife, with no children He was the subject of episode 80 that I mentioned before, and I'll have a link to it at the bottom of the show notes. I have a few more thoughts about him today, specifically to see what we can learn from watching how he relates to other people, himself, and God. It's the Observe skill we've been talking about this year. Zechariah's relational moments In observing Zechariah's relational moments in the back story to the Christmas story, we first see him becoming fearful when he encounters an angel in the sanctuary of the temple in Jerusalem. The angel is Gabriel and he tells him his elderly wife is going to get pregnant and give birth to a son after all these years of no children. He tells Zechariah the wonderful plans God has for his son, who is to be called “John.” Gabriel shares the very significant role his son will have in carrying out God's plan. In spite of this wonderful news, Zechariah doubts the angel and God who sent him. He wants certainty about the words from God. “How can I be sure this will happen?”, he says (Luke 1:18). We're like this sometimes when we doubt God. It's another way of saying “I don't know if I can trust God.” That's what we're really doubting, our trust in God. Our need for certainty exposes our lack of trust. Later in the Christmas story, we see Mary in a similar situation as Zechariah when Gabriel tells her she is going to give birth to Jesus the Messiah. Mary asks, ” But how can this happen? I am a virgin.” (Luke 1:34) Unlike Zechariah, her response isn't doubt or lack of trust; it's wanting to understand the process, the next step. She's not looking for “how can I be sure” like Zechariah is. When we don't trust God there can be negative consequences, as there was for Zechariah. Gabriel tells him that because he doesn't believe him, he won't be able to talk until his son is born. Nine months of silence from Zechariah's lips. Fortunately for Zechariah, and for us, God's discipline isn't a death sentence. It doesn't last forever. God doesn't give up on Zechariah, and he doesn't give up on you and me either. Visit from a relative The next relational interaction we observe with Zechariah occurs when he receives Mary, the soon-to-be mother of Jesus, into his home with his wife Elizabeth for a three-month visit. This is after Gabriel tells Mary she is to give birth to Jesus and at the same time, he says that her relative Elizabeth is also pregnant. Some scholars think Elizabeth is Mary's aunt [pronounced “ant'], other scholars think she is Mary's aunt [pronounced “Auh-nt”]. And still other theologians speculate that Mary is Elizabeth's niece. We'll let the scholars and theologians battle that out. It keeps them employed and off the dole. I find it interesting that the text says Mary went to where Zechariah lived, not where Elizabeth lived. (Luke 1:39 and 56). What a kind gesture for Zechariah to have his routine interrupted with a visit from a relative who stays three months. He and Mary must have had a good relationship for this to occur. Zechariah may have had a sense that Mary's visit would be good for his elderly pregnant wife, Elizabeth. Have you ever had people outside of your family move in to live with you for any length of time? Janet and I have done this a number of times. It's an interruption to be sure. And some guests are more high maintenance than others. But in all the instances I can remember, we gained more than we gave up. You might want to try it sometime. What will the neighbors think? Another relational lesson we learn from Zechariah comes up when his son is born. Neighbors and relatives want the baby to be named after his father, but very forcefully Zechariah communicates in writing, “His name is John,” which at that point his speech finally returns, just as Gabriel said it would (Luke 1:63). It takes strength of character to go against the preferences of neighbors, friends, and relatives. And against tradition. But Zechariah did. He obeyed God, rather than man. And sometimes that's difficult. It was for Zechariah back then, and it's true for us now. Sometimes when we obey God, we may disappoint important people in our life. But doing what God wants us to do always trumps pleasing people. God is not a fan of people pleasers. This is a great lesson in relating to God and other people. It's an important part of the back story to the Christmas story. Zechariah's first words after nine months of silence We also learn some relational lessons from Zechariah when his speech returns after his son John is born. Zechariah could have complained about his punishment of silence. Instead, he took his discipline from God like a man. He realized he was wrong for doubting God, and accepted the consequences. When Zechariah's speech finally returns he puts his past doubts about God to rest. He moves forward praising God with a prophecy as his very first words: "Praise the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has visited and redeemed his people. He has sent us a mighty Savior from the royal line of his servant David, just as he promised through his holy prophets long ago. “Now we will be saved from our enemies and from all who hate us. He has been merciful to our ancestors by remembering his sacred covenant-- the covenant he swore with an oath to our ancestor Abraham. “We have been rescued from our enemies so we can serve God without fear, in holiness and righteousness for as long as we live.” (Luke 1:67-75) You and I have the same opportunity as Zechariah. We can either use God's discipline to push us away from Him or to draw us closer to Him. The choice is ours. A Father casts a vision for his son Besides this lesson, there's that moment when Zechariah looks down at his new-born son and says to him: "And you, my little son, will be called the prophet of the Most High, because you will prepare the way for the Lord. You will tell his people how to find salvation through forgiveness of their sins. “Because of God's tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace.” Luke 1:76-79 I love how tender Zechariah is with his baby, when he turns his attention from praising God, to casting a vision for his little boy. There's no reason men can't be tender with their babies. Don't leave the nurturing to just mothers. Bless your children and give them a vision for what they can become, Just like Zechariah did. A place in history Besides Zechariah's relationship with people and with God, I so appreciate how he recognizes his place in history and his role in advancing God's story of redemption. Like millions before him, he has been waiting for the Messiah. But now, as crazy as it seemed to him, Zechariah has been given a supporting role in the birth and parenting of a boy who one day will become John the Baptist. And John himself will play a major supporting role in preparing the way for Jesus in bringing the good news of the Gospel to the world. These important relationships are the back story to the Christmas story. You know, we all have the opportunity to play a role in advancing God's kingdom. Jesus is the lead actor in God's great drama; that's his role. He's the star. But he wants us on stage with him as supporting actors. What a great privilege. I wonder what your role is? If you're not sure how to answer this, I bet if you were to ask Jesus he would show you the supporting part he wants you to play. And one final thing about Zechariah and his relationship with his son. His boy, who grows to be John the Baptist, becomes more of an influencer than he does. John impacts more people in telling them about Jesus than the role God called his father to play. And from what we know of Zechariah, I'm sure he's perfectly fine with that. May the same be true of all of us who have children. May we rejoice with them when their influence on God's kingdom exceeds ours. Here's the big takeaway I hope you remember from today's episode Relationships are the back story to the Christmas story The cast of characters interacting with each other gives us role models we can follow. They teach us how to relate with each other, with ourselves, and with God. Let's pay attention to them. I'd love to hear any thoughts you have about today's episode. Just send them to me in an email to john [at] caringforothers [dot] org. Or you can share your thoughts in the “Leave a Comment” box at the bottom of the show notes. Closing I hope your thinking was stimulated by today's show, to reflect on the supporting role God is calling you to play in his grand design for the human race. And then to play it out the best you can, for as you know, You Were Made for This. Lastly, one thing you could do to help us out is to leave a review and rating wherever you listen to this podcast. It helps others to find us on the Internet. Well, that's all for today.

William Blake (28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827) was an English poet, painter, and printmaker. Largely unrecognised during his life, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of the poetry and visual art of the Romantic Age. What he called his prophetic works were said by 20th-century critic Northrop Frye to form "what is in proportion to its merits the least read body of poetry in the English language".[2] His visual artistry led 21st-century critic Jonathan Jones to proclaim him "far and away the greatest artist Britain has ever produced".[3] In 2002, Blake was placed at number 38 in the BBC's poll of the 100 Greatest Britons.[4] While he lived in London his entire life, except for three years spent in Felpham,[5] he produced a diverse and symbolically rich collection of works, which embraced the imagination as "the body of God"[6] or "human existence itself".[7]Bio via Wikipedia See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Scripture For Today:Isaiah 44:17“From the rest he makes a god, his idol; he bows down to it and worships. He prays to it and says, “Save me! You are my god!”Responsibility for Answered Prayer pt 1I want to share with you some very important aspects of receiving answer to your prayers. The one that most people struggle with is “Who's responsible for our prayer being answered?” Now, before you get mad at me already and switch this program off, hear me out… Many people want to relieve themselves from all responsibility when it comes to receiving from the Lord. They want to put all the responsibility on God.  Then, if their prayer is not answered, they can say, “Well, it must not be God's will, because I prayed, “If it be thy will” and God didn't do it… so that tells me it was not His will.” In other words, it's human nature to try and put off all the responsibility on God. Even Adam did that in the Garden of Eden! He told God, “That woman that YOU gave me…” We cannot get away from OUR responsibility in prayer, even if we want to. Most of us don't want to accept the responsibility – any of it – concerning whether our prayers are answered or not. We would rather put it all over on God. That way, we would never have to say, “I failed. I missed it.”  God has given us the Light of His Word. The more we submit ourselves TO His Word and the more we conform ourselves TO HIS Word, the more successful our prayer life will become and we will find our prayers being answered more often.  AMEN! People often ask me questions like, “Why don't God heal me when I ask Him too?”  Then, once they say that, they give me all of the reasons why God SHOULD heal them. “I did this and I do that and I gave this and I worked that… and…and… and…” People do not get healed based on their reasoning or qualifications. You cannot EARN healing any more than you can EARN salvation. Amen!  Healing, Salvation, Provision and Prosperity – every single benefit has already been PAID FOR by the Lord Jesus! Amen! Healing is one of those “God given benefits.”  Glory to God! If you want to see more success in receiving your prayers answered, be it healing, finances, or otherwise – my best advice is (and you've heard me say this before) – GET INTO THE WORD on a consistent, daily, basis! Amen! We'll take it up more hear tomorrow! Let's Pray!

Too often western culture is reductionistic in our “truth” about reality. And Christians are too influenced by this materialistic reductionism so that it limits our ability to live by the power of our imagination. Are you reducing your faith to just information? But God's word gives you imagination because imagination is far more powerful than mere information to speak life into your desires. Genesis 2 speaks life into our desires by giving us two powerful images to imagine God and imagine all that he is for us in Jesus.  Genesis 2:7–10 NIV Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Now the LORD God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. The LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters. Genesis 2:15 NIV The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. Jesus promises in… Revelation 2:7 NIV11 To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.   All the earth will become an “Eden” when Christ returns… Revelation 22:1–3 NIV11 …The river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, [was] flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, …yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be any curse. John 7:37–39 NIV On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified. Who can you share this podcast with?

Fire of love, crazy over what You have made. Oh, divine Madman.” - Saint Catherine of Siena  Scripture for Lectio Divina: The spirit of the sovereign Lord is on me because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners. To proclaim the year of the Lord's favor and the day of vengeance of our God. To comfort all who mourn and provide for those who grieve in Zion. To bestow on them a crown of beauty, instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise, instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor. - Isaiah 61:1-3 This episode is sponsored by Kingdom Builders.
