Part 3 of “Drop the Charges,” is a focused exploration of the doctrine of original sin versus the introduction of judgment into the human race at the fall as the source of our fallen identity. Scripturally speaking, human judgment, which came from eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, is the root of sin - not our inherent nature or behaviors. In this episode: • How wrong doctrines are formed (and have been since the Garden) • What the Bible says happened in the Garden at the fall (“sin” isn’t part of the story) • The perception of oneness and union that was lost • The tree of the knowledge of good and evil brought shame, fear, judgment, and self-righteousness • We were not born into sin, but into a world system that is steeped in separation from God (“alienated from God…in your minds”) • The Father sees us as innocent, wrapped in Christ; He didn’t change His perception of us at the fall, we did • We need to agree with how God sees us It’s not sin that was introduced at the fall. It was a perception and a system of separation from God, self-based identity, self-righteousness, and judgment that came from the knowledge of good and evil. Dropping the charges means taking ourselves off of the throne, allowing God to be God, and letting go of a righteousness that is based on our own self efforts or “goodness.” Goodness only exists in God - being one with Him is how we are good. This revelation will heal our image or ourselves, God, and all of creation.

Psalm 145 is a declaration of God's immense and immeasurable greatness. Not only that, David proclaims the vast goodness of God. We are to never forget that. We are to commend God's greatness and goodness to our generation. How do we do this? We do this by doing good and not seeking to be great. When God's people are rich in good works, we proclaim His greatness.

This episode is all about the inner workings of Sound Meditations for ripples of goodness in a difficult environment. A conversation with NYC Emergency Room Physician and sound meditation facilitator, Dr. William Berk. We talk about how he came to combine modern medicine with ancient techniques and how sound can be a surprising facilitation into a meditative state, especially for people who have trouble just sitting still in mindfulness. An easier, falling into meditative states definitely piques my curiosity! “Sound has been used throughout time and culture as a powerful way of disconnecting from our chattering and distracted “monkey mind” and connecting with a state that is equanimous, connected and transcendental. What is sound meditation? Sound meditation is a deeply-immersive meditative practice where sound becomes your sole focus. Using a series of carefully selected instruments, we focus the attention and allow the mind to rest as the subconscious and the body comes to a state of loving and connected harmony.

Goodness gracious. We've had a crazy week in the Jones household and it's been quite the rollercoaster! How crazy you ask? Well we're adopting a baby in three weeks - and that's not even the crazy bit! Come aboard and we'll tell you all about it. This is a different episode than normal, but it's one of our favorites so far.
Amanda Held Opelt got a lesson in grief she never wanted. After a series of miscarriages, the loss of her grandma, and then her beloved sister, Amanda found solace in an unexpected place, in exploring ancient grief rituals in practices. In her first book, A Hole in the World: Finding Hope in Rituals of Grief and Healing, Amanda explores how such ancient grief rituals and practices can be a vessel for honest expression, communal connection, and even healing. Amanda is an author, speaker, and songwriter. She writes about faith, grief, and creativity. She has spent 15 years serving in the non-profit and humanitarian aid sectors and lives in the mountains of Boone, North Carolina. This July, Amanda is releasing her second book, Holy Unhappiness: God, Goodness, and the Myth of the Blessed Life. In my time with Amanda, we talk about the complexity of living in a world that can be both stunningly beautiful and so very broken. She helps us see the beauty of ritual and community and how loss has the potential to deepen our capacity for love, faith, and healing. She also helps us see how reading the Biblical narrative through the lens of grief, can open us to seeing God in new and transformational ways. Overall, Amanda bravely and authentically wades into the human experience, offering us so much compassion, hope, and hard-won wisdom.
It's hard to beat a person who refuses to give up.

We are all on the same trip, the trip of life. Encourage each other,
Farm-to-Table-Talk If you are like me, the words "farm-to-table" make me sit up and take notice. I just love to make and eat food that is fresh and locally sourced. Using ingredients grown and created nearby where I live supports my local community and improves our way of life, but I don't necessarily connect these farm-to-table words to cocktails. However, I sure do now! I am always looking for local businesses doing great and innovative things. It was such fun to read about sisters Venise and Belinda through an article in our local newspaper, The Seattle Times. I was intrigued and impressed with their story and bought a Simple Goodness Sisters Cocktail Farm Box for my husband, Craig. We loved everything about the cocktail box! The recipes were delicious, and the syrups they created with natural farm goodness were divine. It was totally and completely a home run for us! Let me tell you a little about the sisters: Belinda Kelly is the foodie and flavor master behind the recipes. She founded Happy Camper Cocktail Company, one of America's first mobile bars, in 2016. Simple Goodness Sisters launched in 2018 due to the fanfare for Belinda's easy-to-mix, flavorful cocktail syrups that distinguished her "farm-to-bar" cocktail menu. Today Belinda co-farms the Simple Goodness Farm and co-owns the Simple Goodness Sisters beverage brand and Simple Goodness Sisters Soda Shop with her sister Venise. Venise Cunningham is the co-owner of Simple Goodness Syrups and the owner of Simple Goodness Farm. Venise transformed a 10-acre dairy property into the world's first cocktail farm, growing fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers exclusively for use in cocktails. Venise is a first-generation farmer who has cultivated deep ties and connections with the local farm community. Her passion for growing healthier, local food has helped develop her sustainably tended farm to support both the Simple Goodness Sisters product line and the Simple Goodness Soda Shop menu. Highlights from this Episode: These ladies are delightful - I had so much fun hearing their stories! Farm life and how these cocktail syrups are created Farming strategies, what to grow! What is their Soda Shop like? Visit Wilkeson, WA - Small town living in the Pacific Northwest. What makes a balanced cocktail?

#plugintodevin - Your Mark on the World with Devin Thorpe
Devin: What do you see as your superpower?Jeff: I will say something maybe a little bit contrarian, which is that I actually think that the nuts and bolts of stuff is what matters.Jeffrey Robbins, a partner at Saul Ewing and syndicated columnist, was part of the guest impact creators delegation visiting Israel last month. We both concluded that the best part of the trip was the diverse composition of the delegation itself. I invited each member of the 8-person delegation to be a guest on the show.AI Summary of the Podcast* Jeff Robbins is a lawyer and syndicated columnist who twice served as the United States delegate to the United Nations Human Rights Commission.* He admires Hillary Clinton's influence on human rights issues and challenges Trumpism in his writing.* He feels an obligation to write against Trumpism and states his appalled sentiment toward it.* Robbins has written for conservative newspapers like The Boston Herald.* Robbins believes in paying attention to detail and reading documents carefully, with no shortcuts or substitutes.* Robbins catches important evidence during litigation by paying attention to small details.* He encourages younger lawyers to embrace the “drudgery” of thinking about everything and taking responsibility for their cases.Earlier in his career, Jeff worked as a staffer in the U.S. Senate. That led to his developing a powerful network that yielded appointments from President Clinton for two years to serve as a delegate to the United Nations Human Rights Commission.Jeff shared the story of his experience as a delegate:The United Nations, the United States has a tradition of appointing four so-called public delegates from outside the Foreign Service, from outside the State Department, to attend the Human Rights Commission. The idea, I think, originated with Eleanor Roosevelt when the UN was founded. The idea was that there should be some expression of the American public at the council. So the White House appoints four or five people a year to go. I have to say it was moving. I mean, on one level, of course, the UN is full of bloviation and nonsense and almost Monty Python-like silliness in terms of the rhetoric and the meaningless folderol. There is all that. But there's also a tremendous amount of idealism. The council every year is attended by hundreds of activists and refugees and victims and advocates for victims. And as a delegate for the United States, the United States being the 800-pound gorilla, there is actually opportunity to speak out on their behalf and to lend support to their various causes. These are stories, some of them too long to tell today. But there were numerous times in those two six-week stints when I thought, “My God, how wonderful to represent the United States. With everything that we've got going that's problematic, what a wonderful thing. The United States is at its best as an advocate for people, for those whose human rights are not being respected.So, I came away with it all, very much moved by the opportunity to speak at the UN on behalf of the United States and, probably more substantively, to kind of advocate a bit for various human rights organizations and individuals around the world.Today, Jeff writes a syndicated column that originates in the conservative paper, the Boston Herald. He writes as the liberal contrarian speaking to conservatives who don't often agree with him.He shared his motivation with me:I'm so appalled by Donald Trump. I'm so appalled by Trumpism. I'm so appalled by all of the viciousness and the brutality and the swagger and the corruption and the anti-democratic instincts, to be quite blunt about it—my view of the last five years of that movement. Even though I know that there will be people, lots of people, in fact, most of the Herald's readers, who will be enraged by that, I feel an obligation to go right at that. So I think in some perverse way—perhaps I shouldn't admit this—I actually like going right at that stuff in a newspaper where I know the readers will just detest me and cast aspersions on my mother.In Jeff's career, he has developed a superpower: focusing on the small stuff. This has enabled him to be successful as a human rights delegate, a Senate staffer, a columnist and especially as a lawyer.How to Develop a Focus on the Small Stuff As a SuperpowerJeff explained the power of sweating the small stuff:You are somebody who has achieved an enormous amount by paying attention to detail, by sweating the small stuff. I know that it's popular to say, don't sweat the small stuff unless you're a genius. I am very, very far from that. There's nothing to be done but to sweat the small stuff. I sometimes think that there's a direct line between neurosis and excellence. Neurosis is no guarantee of excellence. God knows, as I think I demonstrate, on an hourly basis. But on the other hand, unless you're a genius, excellence comes does not come without the neurosis, without the blocking and the tackling and the reading of things and the paying attention to details. So I actually think that the boring stuff is what matters most. If you skip the quote-unquote, boring stuff, the chances of succeeding at whatever it is you're trying to do are much slimmer in the practice of law. For example, in a big firm where the cases are big, and there are a lot of documents, I always had to laugh because people would talk about, “Well, document review, let's just give the document review to some junior people or some paralegals just let them do it.”I'm like, “I don't know what you're talking about, man. It's the documents that are the evidence. The evidence is going to be in some footnote someplace. If you don't look at the damn documents, including the footnotes, you're not going to get the evidence. And you don't get the evidence. You don't win the case.” That, to me, is an example of how there are not, in my experience, any shortcuts. Unfortunately, it's the slog that makes the difference, if you see what I mean.Jeff shared a specific example of attention to detail helping him win a case:It happened to me, quite frankly. Last week, while I was examining a witness and I looked down at a document that I had worked on, and I saw for the first time there was an entry on a legal bill, which was a piece of evidence that showed something important. My split-second reaction was, “Goodness, this probably isn't the best time to have noticed this, but no one has noticed this before. And here we are, standing in court, and I've noticed it.” That happens to lawyers, I think, way more than they like to say. But the bottom line on all of it is, if you don't spend the time as a litigator looking at the evidence, scouring it, turning it around, reading it at different times during the course of a case, because, of course, things occur to you differently as a case progresses, you're going to miss that stuff. There's no shortcut for that. There's no way around that. There's no clever Perry Mason skill that can substitute anything or even close to substitute for sticking your face down in the paper and reading the damn stuff.When I asked for advice for developing the skill, Jeff responded, “there are some people who, for one reason or another, find that drudgery. Again, I don't know any alternative to embracing the drudgery.”If you follow Jeff's example and take his advice to “embrace the drudgery,” you can make it a superpower that enables you to do more good.

Have you ever had a bad day? Of course, you have had days when things don't go as planned. But let's have some perspective about those types of days.
Dr. Jessica Peck is a professor, nurse practitioner, author, and mama who has written a book called Behind Closed Doors: A Guide to Help Parents and Teens Navigate Through Life's Toughest Issues, and it is precisely that. It's an incredible resource that talks about what Jessica sees in her office with parents and kids and teens of varying ages as well as in her own home. We are going to talk about A LOT of things today and some of them may feel kind of scary, or uncomfortable. Still, the goal of this conversation is to learn how to engage in very uncomfortable things in a “quasi-comfortable” or at the very least approachable way. Things like the mental health crisis in this country among young people, the effects of social media, living at the speed of a smartphone, conversations surrounding suicide, the drive to be perfect, and more. The goal is not for those of us who love young people as parents, ministers, doctors, nurses, teachers, coaches, aunts, uncles, or whoever you are to be scared of the world that young people are facing but to remember the hope we have in Jesus no matter what happens in this world. AND through people like Dr. Peck, we can be empowered with knowledge and equip us for what may lay ahead. I am so hopeful that you find something in this conversation for you and your relationship with the young people in your life. We cannot protect them from everything. We will not do this perfectly. But we can build healthy, honest, relationships with the young people and teenagers in our life. Remember: it is never too late to redeem a relationship, ask for forgiveness, or to change the trajectory of our decisions. I hope you find hope in that today. The Lord is not finished with your story. He has plans for a hopeful future for you, and He will carry them out until the very end. You matter, and your story matters. *Connecting with Dr. Jessica Peck: Audiobook Book Facebook Instagram Podcast Website References: -“Jumani”- THE OG!! -Simone Biles' mental health decision at the Olympics -University of Tennessee of the 90's -Eye contact secretes oxcytocin -My instagram live with Dr. Peck about Sex Trafficiking -Human trafficking resource -Signs of sex trafficking -Lunchbox questions for kids/teens -Lunchbox jokes Harry Potter and Star Wars (Pinterest is a gold mine!) -Cece Winans' “Goodness of God” -Pediatric Clinic in India through Baylor Scripture References: Ephesians 6:10-18-put on the full of armor of God Ecclesiastes 3:1-8- -there is a time to reap and a time to sow Lamentations 3:22–33; Psalm 30; 2 Corinthians 8:1–9-God's mercies are new every single morning Ezekiel 37:1-14-God's power can raise bones from the desert 2 Corinthians 12:9-God's power is made known in our weakness John 16:33-In this world we will have trouble, but God Psalm 84:11- No good thing will God withhold from me Jeremiah 29:11 The Lord has plans for a hopeful future for you Philippians 1:6- He will complete the work He began in you JOIN OUR PATREON COMMUNITY!!!!

HeightsCast: Forming Men Fully Alive
Parents love their children and desire the best for them. Yet at times the world seems full of dangers and obstacles to a child's ultimate good. Because of this, a certain fear may cast a shadow on the ways parents relate to their children. To discuss parenting and fear, we welcome back Mr. Alvaro de Vicente to HeightsCast. In the episode, Alvaro explains some of the dangers of being overprotective and parenting from a sense of fear. Rather, he encourages parents to prudently discern moments to give their children the space for making the right choice on their own, which of course means that they also have the freedom to make a mistake. At the same time, Alvaro offers advice on optimistic and formative ways to say “no” to one's children, when such is necessary. As Alvaro reminds us, gratitude for the good received helps one to make positive decisions about the good to be done. If families make intentional time to remember and give thanks to God for the goodness in the world, parents and children alike will be naturally drawn to that Goodness from which the world came.
