Today, we're going to explore one way that young people in North Carolina are working to improve their local food system. The Food Youth Initiative is a program based in the Center for Environmental Farming Systems, which is housed at North Carolina State University. Now we'll be talking with the Program Coordinator, Bevelyn Ukah, and the Program Partner, Ree Ree Wei, of Transplanting Traditions Community Farm. Interview Summary Great, well it's good to have you, and as I was explaining before we actually went live on this, we've done, I don't know, 150 podcasts or so, but this is the first one that specifically deals with youth in the food system and the role they can play, so I'm really happy to hear from you about what seems to me to be a very innovative program. So, Bevelyn, let's start with you. Can you tell us what the Food Youth Initiative is and talk about your work there? Bevelyn - Yes, the Food Youth Initiative is a program of the Center for Environmental Farming Systems. It sometimes challenges me to call it a program, because it's more so a network of youth groups across the state that are doing food justice work in their areas. So as the Network Coordinator, my job is being in relationship with them, listening to the work that they're already doing in their own communities, and finding as many ways as possible to make sure that they're connected to each other's work. All the youth groups that are a part of the network, about eight now, are all doing various things that are connected to the food system. What makes it that much more powerful is when they come together because they're able to exemplify different entry points on what food, and food systems, and food justice looks like. You know, community organizations are very often doing quite creative work, but work in isolation and don't get the chance to connect up with other community organizations to share ideas, and strategies, and things. I'm imagining this is a very powerful experience. Have you found that to be true? Bevelyn - Yes, I have found that to be true. And I would love for Ree Ree to answer this question as well. It's always awkward when bringing people together. And youth tend to be super honest about how they're feeling in their bodies. So when bringing these youth groups together from these different walks of life, the first day or the first few experiences are a little bit awkward. And it's one of the most powerful witnessings that I see over and over again, how a bit of time and a bit of tools and resources can get people talking and moving. How it completely shifts the trajectory of how these youth can learn from one another. I think that the first step in bringing youth together is to make sure that there is a validation that the work that they're doing is innovative. And the work that they're doing is important. That it actually pushes against the grain of how the rest of food systems work looks. And once we start to name that and identify that, it's super powerful in terms of the transformation that takes place when youth come together. Thanks for that explanation. Ree Ree, I'd love to hear your thoughts on that. It sounds like something pretty magical happens when the youth from different groups get to come together and share things. Has that been your experience, too? Ree Ree - Yes, that has in my experience. Being part of FYI, and I started out as a youth with Transplant Traditions Community Farm back in 2013, it was very new. And very awkward, and very weird to be able to be in a space of I want to do something as a youth, but I feel very uncomfortable. But over time, having that physical connection, being able to see each other in person, and network, and share out changes perspectives, and youth confidence and youth visions for their future. I can say that I am a testimony to the work of FYI and TTCF Youth Program. I have learned skills that are beyond what I thought that I needed. Over time, I built a lot of skills and learned why my voice as a young person matters. Why collective working together matters, and that is unique about this. One youth group inspires another youth group, and different food systems and food justice work, it's very interconnected. It's nice to hear from both of you on your perspectives on that. Ree Ree, let me ask you a follow-up question. I know there's a lot of interest in this concept of youth justice, and how does youth justice connect to food and environmental justice? Ree Ree - Yes, there are these expectations and societal norms that youth are supposed to do this, and this, and this, and that. And sometimes adults and even society put youth in a box. But when we were talking about youth justice, we are able to create a space for them. And that's what FYI is really good at it, and being able to be say, "Okay, we are going to work on food justice or environmental justice," and, "Here, this is your space." And food work gets to be creative. They get to come up with things they want to do, and giving them the autonomy for them to be able to say, "I want this, because I see this, and this is what I can do," even though this youth might feel like they're unable to do it, but over time, that space, giving youth that autonomy, oftentimes there's not room for youth to be able to do that. And especially the work that FYI does and Transplant Tradition do is that we centers around where youth are able to have the decision making of how they want to strategize about this project. What goes on this picture, that type of thing. So when youth are given the space and the voice, they're able to see the connection between food and environmental justice and how work that they're doing is not just on a surface level; it goes deeper and they're connected. Youth are able to address these different generational issues that their ancestor experienced. You're giving voice to something really important, and I could see how this would be such a powerful experience for the youth that you work with. And let's talk a little bit more about the particulars of the program. So Bevelyn, I know that one part of the project overall, the initiative is the Mural Project. Would you describe what that's about? Bevelyn - Bringing youth together is the important part, but the strategic planning that we put into the process of how we bring youth together is really important. And our theory of change acknowledges that for systems change to be possible, we need to work on multiple levels, including a policy level. We need to be able to educate ourselves and our communities through storytelling and other forms of expression. We need to be able to act and create models or create spaces that offer this reimagination of how our food system and our society should look like. And as we've been talking about, it's also important for us to build relationships and to be able to maintain those relationships, because ultimately what we're trying to create or continue is an ecosystem that brings a sense of belonging, for not only the youth participants, but also for the communities in which they live. And so the Mural Project is heavily connected to the education part, the storytelling part of our theory of change. Every year, when we bring youth together, there are multiple skills that are being developed. We've focused on storytelling from different mediums and different forms. In the past, we've done photography and made sure that youth had access to really nice cameras, and that they could go around their communities and take photos. And they had a few exhibits. We also created a traveling exhibit for the youth to be able to own this exhibit and be able to use whenever they're doing presentations. We've worked on public speaking in the form of learning how to write monologues and sharing them. We did that at the Durham Art Council some years back. We've done a whole compilation of poetry and worked with a poet who worked with us for a whole week. And so right now we're creating a mural that is centered around community stories, around food and environmental justice. We have youth coming from Transplanting Traditions, and Chapel Hill, Pupusas for Education, which is based in Durham, and then A Better Chance/Better Community, youth and adult allies are coming together to form this experience. It's an eight-month project where they have been learning about one another, relationship building, but also building their knowledge base on the root causes of food injustice and lack of accessibility to healthy, culturally relevant food, and also learning about root causes of climate change in ways that we can galvanize ourselves to shift this narrative, to be more connected to our natural environment and to be more ecologically conscious. That was a first phase. And the second phase we're in right now which is where youth are gathering together in Durham over the next three months to work on a storytelling project, get to know one another, but to work on a storytelling project where they will be going out into the community and creatively offering opportunities for people to talk about their experiences around climate, environmental justice, and food. They will bring those back to our hive, I guess I'll call it, in forming, designing a mural that expresses those stories and that mural will be on a food truck. Pupusas for Education has offered a food truck for us to paint on over the next few months, and it will be unveiled on June 11th at Transplant Traditions Community Farm. And I will say that that unveiling will be a party and everyone is invited. That sounds so lovely. I can imagine how meaningful an experience this would be to the youth. The food truck idea is a really good one. Yeah, I can't wait to see this. It just sounds so neat. Bevelyn - Yeah, we're really excited about being able to have a mobile mural that people can see all over the place. It's more accessible this way. It represents a collective effort of a lot of different people, so it just sounds so nice. So I'd like to ask both of you kind of a follow-up question, and, Ree Ree, let's start with you. What kind of impact do you think the youth are having in their communities? Ree Ree - Sometimes they feel like they don't, but it's a huge impact. They are the voices and they're the ones that are speaking up and publicly saying it out loud to the community that these issues are important, and they're being impacted at a very young age. And they're even impacting folks directly or indirectly one way or another. Like our youth group, they are doing tutoring, and they don't realize that is a huge impact to the direct causes of literacy issues. And the other bigger impact that they're having is they're addressing things that not many people are aware of, like food justice, environmental justice, climate just- Like why are we changing the narrative from seeing things as an issue to, "Okay, it's an environmental problem." Now let's flip the narrative to, "Okay, we're fighting for environmental justice or food justice." They are using their own voices and their bodies, and being able to say, "We are doing this work and we need you all to listen to us because these issues are going to continue." You know what it reminds me of is the early days of seat belts, where there were a lot of adults that were reluctant to wear seat belts, but education programs started happening in schools. Youth then came home with the message, and adults were listening to the pleas of the youth to wear seat belts, and it really made a difference. And I could see that same thing kind of happening here. Bevelyn, does that make sense to you, and what kind of impact are you seeing youth having in their communities? Bevelyn - I think that's a really great example, the marginalization of youth voices. It's very intentional. Historically, anytime there's been large-scale transformations, those societal transformations have been led by youth. For social transformation, younger generations have the juice. I think it's really, really important for youth to be able to share their own stories and talk about what they're doing. And at the same time, part of my job is to share as much as possible the actual activities, the actual things that youth are doing to shift our food system. So earlier, when I was talking about the theory of change, when I was talking about policy, education, replicable models and networks, I was more so speaking from the perspective of how we're building out our programs within the Food Youth Initiative, but ultimately, each of these youth groups are already working in their communities on all of those levels to make changes. And one example is Poder Juvenile Campesino. They've been doing a lot of work on farm labor rights, specifically building awareness around the challenges, not only that farm workers experience, but that farm worker youth experience, as our policy in the United States allows for children to be in our fields with very little protection. A lot of these youth are farm laborers themselves, and so they're not just advocates. These experiences directly impacts them and their families. And then Ree Ree's already talked about education and storytelling. Transplanting Traditions youth have been heavy advocates for the farm and for the farmers, as a lot of the farmers may have challenges around speaking English or even accessing certain systemic resources. And so, to be able to openly talk about the importance of recultivating home in the United States in Chapel Hill, that story has heavily been told by the youth of the farm. I can go on and on about the replicable models and networks, but I just wanted to be super clear that we're not just throwing these words around, climate justice, food justice, environmental justice, that the youth that are a part of this network are doing groundbreaking work in their communities. So I heavily encourage folks to continue to follow us so that you can continue to educate yourselves about the high impacts work that is being done. It sounds like with the youth having voice and carrying messages forth is important to both the people who are speaking the message and the people who are hearing it, so you can see really important impact occurring with this, couldn't you? Ree Ree - Yes, and I see in some ways, like something I have learned being part of the youth program that I have learned over time, is that the impact is both on a personal level and also at the big P, on a policy level, on a public level, so it impacts folks directly and indirectly in a way where it leads to cool things, like being able to address for policy changes. And they're able to learn how to advocate for themselves personally. So that's sometimes the impact that sometimes people don't often realize, youth also are learning how to advocate for themselves, which is like big things that, and especially a lot of youth that we have worked with and learning about you are able to advocate for yourself, you have that autonomy. Especially for BIPOC youth and being able to empower them, just tell them, "You can do both of these on a personal level and on a policy level." So one final question for you both, what sort of support do you need to continue this kind of work? Bevelyn, how about you first? Bevelyn - You mentioned earlier that there hasn't been a direct interview about youth in the food system. I believe that there's little awareness about the impacts that youth make on our food system. And therefore there are minimal resources for continued programming and continued network development around youth, and so I'm looking to do more intentional work around fundraising, as opposed to grant writing, because we're able to have a lot more freedom to support youth needs and to be able to identify blind spots that I think that grant makers are having in the process of creating financial opportunities for youth to be able to soar in this work. And Ree Ree, what about you? What do you think? What kind of support is needed to continue this kind of work? Ree Ree - Yeah, I think the type of support that's needed is from all kind of level, being able to, one, like listen to youth. Oftentimes adults have biases about youth. Listen to them, listen to their story, make time, being very intentional about learning about what youth are doing and giving time for that instead of making judgment. And the other thing is to follow the different youth groups of all of FYI network. It'll be really cool to be able to see what they're up to and why their work are, and it's very unique in a way that they're addressing these social issues on a local level. And the other thing is that all of our youth group, they're doing these intentional work that sometimes staffs are limited. We rely on volunteers and contractor peoples to be able to really do these meaningful work, to really continue to support and uplift youth, so on a fundraising level, to support that and reach out and donate. Well, thank you both for being with us. This work is really exciting, innovative, and I'm glad that we can play a role in letting our listeners know about it. So, thanks so much for being with us. Bevelyn - So, Ree Ree's really humble, but Ree Ree was 13 when she started with Transplanting Traditions, and about 14 or 15 when she was one of the co-founders with other youth groups of the Food Youth Initiative network, and essentially she hired me. I applied for the job and she hired me at maybe 15 years old. She went through the program, went to Guilford College, studied Human Relations, came out of college, and is now the ED at Transplanting Traditions. And so I just wanted to also name that career trajectory, that to me is so powerful of how when youth are supported and when they have intentional relationships, how many possibilities open up to young adult's leadership within these powerful food justice spaces.

In 2017, the City of Greensboro logged more than 40 vehicle crash fatalities, at the time a high mark that rattled officials enough to explore ways toward safer travels. This led city officials to a global movement in the form of a scalable initiative called Vision Zero. On this episode, City of Greensboro Transportation Planning Engineer Lydia McIntyre explains what Vision Zero is, how it seeks to reduce traffic fatalities and serious accidents, and what the city has learned (with surprises) since embarking.

For decades, social scientists warned that living together before marriage increased the odds of later divorce. However, this runs contrary to conventional wisdom. In fact, most American adults today think that cohabiting first should actually strengthen marriages by serving as a compatibility test. So what's the deal? Is living together before marriage a good or bad idea? Let's explore what the science really says and discuss practical tips and considerations for partners looking to move in together. I am joined by Dr. Arielle Kuperberg, an Associate Professor of Sociology and Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Arielle has studied cohabitation and its effects extensively and is here to help us settle the popular debate. Some of the topics we explore include: How many people today live together before marriage, and how this trend has changed over time. Why cohabitation and divorce are linked, and how the association between them has changed. Why the age at which you get married is a key factor in predicting divorce. How people who cohabit before marriage differ from those who move directly into marriage. How to know when it's the right time to move in together. How to set yourself up for cohabiting success.

People's sexual identities and behaviors don't always line up in the way that you might expect. For example, a lot of people who identify as heterosexual or straight report having had partners of the same sex or gender. And there are a lot of different reasons for this! My guest today has identified at least six different types of people who identify as heterosexual, but engage in same-sex behavior. So, we're going to break it down for you. I am joined by Dr. Arielle Kuperberg, an Associate Professor of Sociology and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Arielle recently published a study about heterosexually-identified college students who reported same-sex hookups and we explore her key findings. Among the topics we discuss are: Why sexual identity and sexual behavior don't always match up. Which heterosexual people who engage in same-sex behavior are likely to change their sexual identity labels in the future. The roles of college culture and alcohol in sexual self-exploration. Why some heterosexual people engage in same-sex behavior for attention or performance. The influence of religion and politics on sexual identity. Why we need to measure more than sexual identity if we really want to understand someone's sexuality. Check it out!

THE THESIS: The election was stolen. We can now see how they did it. They used everything we said they would. Wisconsin is proof. THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES: Proverbs 16: 11-12 11 Honest scales and balances belong to the Lord; all the weights in the bag are of his making. 12 Kings detest wrongdoing, for a throne is established through righteousness. All of Proverbs 16 1 To humans belong the plans of the heart, but from the Lord comes the proper answer of the tongue. 2 All a person's ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the Lord. 3 Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. 4 The Lord works out everything to its proper end— even the wicked for a day of disaster. 5 The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished. 6 Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the Lord evil is avoided. 7 When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone's way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them. 8 Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice. 9 In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps. 10 The lips of a king speak as an oracle, and his mouth does not betray justice. 11 Honest scales and balances belong to the Lord; all the weights in the bag are of his making. 12 Kings detest wrongdoing, for a throne is established through righteousness. 13 Kings take pleasure in honest lips; they value the one who speaks what is right. 14 A king's wrath is a messenger of death, but the wise will appease it. 15 When a king's face brightens, it means life; his favor is like a rain cloud in spring. 16 How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver! 17 The highway of the upright avoids evil; those who guard their ways preserve their lives. 18 Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. 19 Better to be lowly in spirit along with the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud. 20 Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, a and blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord. 21 The wise in heart are called discerning, and gracious words promote instruction. B 22 Prudence is a fountain of life to the prudent, but folly brings punishment to fools. 23 The hearts of the wise make their mouths prudent, and their lips promote instruction. C 24 Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. 25 There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death. 26 The appetite of laborers works for them; their hunger drives them on. 27 A scoundrel plots evil, and on their lips it is like a scorching fire. 28 A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends. 29 A violent person entices their neighbor and leads them down a path that is not good. 30 Whoever winks with their eye is plotting perversity; whoever purses their lips is bent on evil. 31 Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained in the way of righteousness. 32 Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city. 33 The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.

Listening to your podcast right now. You encourage us to ask God to please draw JoeBiden to Him but that's not how some of us pray. After 60 years of walking with the Lord, I've learned to say Thy will be done. Period. Because I've only found true contentment in the center of God's will and although I know we can ask, I also know my request could be wrong. Jesus showed us in Gethsemane how and what to ask for: it's simply His Will - not mine. I go where He leads, whether I'm in a wonderfully surprising place or a dark, sad or lonely place, and once I get past "what are You thinking????" there is a peace that passeth understanding and contentment. He may want an unstable, demented, seriously sinful person leading this nation for such a time as this but only God truly knows the greater good. Surrendering to His will and His will alone makes us part of that goodness I think but it is definitely a path to a contented life. Thank you for your program - it is a blessing. --- --- --- Dean - Greensboro, NC Hello Todd (not Mr. Herman per your request), I am a loyal listener to your podcast. As a confession, when hearing your voice instead of Rush (God rest his soul), I tuned out most or all of the time. Nothing against you or any of the other fill-in hosts, but Rush was the real impetus behind listening to his show. However, with your podcast having God as the center, I am drawn to it daily. Thank you for using God's gifts to glorify Him. Love me some Jesus Christ. Wanted to give you and those behind your show a shout of encouragement to keep fighting the fight. Thank you for including the 365 verses of God telling His believers/needers to not be afraid. I had heard this many times in the past, but never seen links to all of them. These verses are a wonderful reminder of our omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent God. I find it interesting to note that in one of the verses God tells us to 'not be afraid', but to also 'be afraid'. Matthew 10:28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Don't be afraid of those who are in the world but be afraid of the One who made the world, the One with REAL power and authority. A sober reminder to those who are not Jesus-needers. As is: Hebrews 10:31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. As Jesus-believers/needers, we don't need to be afraid of our Father as we are washed in His Son's blood! If I do not see you on this side of the dirt, I will definitely contact you in our Father's house. God bless you and yours, Dean - Greensboro, NC See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
We are very good at talking about productive things, domestic things, hard being-a-person things, but we don't often talk about specifically fun things. The busier we are, the more humans we interact with and care for, the more we don't deal with the mounting pressure of what it means to be a person in this world right now, we don't leave a lot of room for fun. And I want us to actually systemize it today. I want us to Lazy Genius fun and for you to figure out how to add more fun to your life on purpose.Helpful Companion LinksDetails about our upcoming Pub Crawl events in Chicago, DC and Greensboro.Bonus episode with my sister HannahEmily P.

THE THESIS: The Party is going to pretend to punish the big Covid scammers. Those thieves stole about $200 billion in so-called Covid relief funds. But, great con artists never leave town and The Party is lying about who are the biggest Covid thieves THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES: Isaiah 32 The Kingdom of Righteousness 32 See, a king will reign in righteousness and rulers will rule with justice. 2 Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land. 3 Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed, and the ears of those who hear will listen. 4 The fearful heart will know and understand, and the stammering tongue will be fluent and clear. 5 No longer will the fool be called noble nor the scoundrel be highly respected. 6 For fools speak folly, their hearts are bent on evil: They practice ungodliness and spread error concerning the Lord; the hungry they leave empty and from the thirsty they withhold water. 7 Scoundrels use wicked methods, they make up evil schemes to destroy the poor with lies, even when the plea of the needy is just. 8 But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand. The Women of Jerusalem 9 You women who are so complacent, rise up and listen to me; you daughters who feel secure, hear what I have to say! 10 In little more than a year you who feel secure will tremble; the grape harvest will fail, and the harvest of fruit will not come. 11 Tremble, you complacent women; shudder, you daughters who feel secure! Strip off your fine clothes and wrap yourselves in rags. 12 Beat your breasts for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vines 13 and for the land of my people, a land overgrown with thorns and briers— yes, mourn for all houses of merriment and for this city of revelry. 14 The fortress will be abandoned, the noisy city deserted; citadel and watchtower will become a wasteland forever, the delight of donkeys, a pasture for flocks, 15 till the Spirit is poured on us from on high, and the desert becomes a fertile field, and the fertile field seems like a forest. 16 The Lord's justice will dwell in the desert, his righteousness live in the fertile field. 17 The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever. 18 My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest. 19 Though hail flattens the forest and the city is leveled completely, 20 how blessed you will be, sowing your seed by every stream, and letting your cattle and donkeys range free. THE NEWS & COMMENT: BIDEN: "If we need a different vaccine for the future to combat a new variant, we are not going to have enough money to purchase it." COVID Relief Program is the ‘Biggest Fraud in a Generation' -- “What didn't happen was even minimal checks to make sure that the money was getting to the right people at the right time.” Biden gets his second COVID booster shot: "I'm not sure why I'm doing it on stage." The Department of Defense Just Got Caught Lying About Vaccine Injuries Fauci says there is "no doubt" that COVID lockdowns worked. Pelosi Son's Associate Convicted of Fraud For Scam That Pelosi's Son Promoted in Ukraine Cursing at the link! Hunter Biden reveals his troubles in new audio from @NatalieGWinters, @RaheemKassam … "My father will not stop sending calls to [my old business partner]. Another reporter is calling about me representing ... the f---ing spy chief of China. And I'm receiving calls from SDNY." Hillary Clinton attempted a coup. Her punishment? an $8,000 fine. Tell me more about Ginni Thomas's texts THE LISTENERS: Deb B.: Finding contentment. Listening to your podcast right now. You encourage us to ask God to please draw Joe Biden to Him but that's not how some of us pray. After 60 years of walking with the Lord, I've learned to say Thy will be done. Period. Because I've only found true contentment in the center of God's will and although I know we can ask, I also know my request could be wrong. Jesus showed us in Gethsemane how and what to ask for: it's simply His Will - not mine. I go where He leads, whether I'm in a wonderfully surprising place or a dark, sad or lonely place, and once I get past "what are You thinking????" there is a peace that passeth understanding and contentment. He may want an unstable, demented, seriously sinful person leading this nation for such a time as this but only God truly knows the greater good. Surrendering to His will and His will alone makes us part of that goodness I think but it is definitely a path to a contented life. Thank you for your program - it is a blessing. --- --- --- Dean - Greensboro, NC Hello Todd (not Mr. Herman per your request), I am a loyal listener to your podcast. As a confession, when hearing your voice instead of Rush (God rest his soul), I tuned out most or all of the time. Nothing against you or any of the other fill-in hosts, but Rush was the real impetus behind listening to his show. However, with your podcast having God as the center, I am drawn to it daily. Thank you for using God's gifts to glorify Him. Love me some Jesus Christ. Wanted to give you and those behind your show a shout of encouragement to keep fighting the fight. Thank you for including the 365 verses of God telling His believers/needers to not be afraid. I had heard this many times in the past, but never seen links to all of them. These verses are a wonderful reminder of our omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent God. I find it interesting to note that in one of the verses God tells us to 'not be afraid', but to also 'be afraid'. Matthew 10:28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Don't be afraid of those who are in the world but be afraid of the One who made the world, the One with REAL power and authority. A sober reminder to those who are not Jesus-needers. As is: Hebrews 10:31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. As Jesus-believers/needers, we don't need to be afraid of our Father as we are washed in His Son's blood! If I do not see you on this side of the dirt, I will definitely contact you in our Father's house. God bless you and yours, Dean - Greensboro, NC See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
THE THESIS: When you prep an environment for adults to talk about all forms of sexual activity with children, you will attract adults who want to engage in all forms of sexual behavior with children. THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES: Matthew 18:5-7 5 And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. Causing to Stumble 6 “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. 7 Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come! THE NEWS & COMMENT: I've obtained video from inside Disney's all-hands meeting about the Florida parental rights bill, in which executive producer Latoya Raveneau says her team has implemented a "not-at-all-secret gay agenda" and is regularly "adding queerness" to children's programming. Disney to Remove All Mentions of Traditional Gender Roles at Theme Parks Cursing alert! She's getting gender reassignment surgery because some of her identities are male. We have a serious mental health crisis in this country. Many aren't “born this way” but we are “made” to be this way. Cursing alert! Teachers are DESPERATE to talk to little kids about sex. It's a disorder Libs of Tik Tok @libsoftiktok. This was all in one day. Oregon needs to be shut down until we can figure out what's going on. How can we fight this as a people of God when our so-called “leaders” are afraid to speak Yahawe's name into these battles? Look at this, from a supposed Christian academic: Why does the author of this piece put baptize and disciple in quotes? Also, as a professor at one would believe to be a Christian college--”College of the Holy Cross”--how can he seriously ask if making disciples of Christ is important? What is the Great Commission and why is it so controversial? - Mathew Schmalz Professor of Religious Studies, College of the Holy Cross The Great Commission refers to several passages in the Gospel of Matthew, where Jesus Christ urges his apostles to make “disciples of all the nations” and “baptize” them. The word “disciple,” which is “mathetes” in Greek, literally means “pupil” but also “follower,” as in “follower of Jesus.” “Baptize” refers to the Christian practice of using water to remove the “original sin,” an inherent fault that Christians believe marks all human beings at birth. Baptism is an important sign of entrance into the Christian faith. The Great Commission, therefore, is usually interpreted to mean spreading the Christian message and converting others to Christianity. . . . Converting others to Christianity raises a fundamental question about whether religious diversity is a reality to be celebrated or an obstacle to be overcome. Given the complex history of missionary activity, the meaning of the Great Commission will continue to be a subject of debate as Christianity confronts a rapidly changing world. THE LISTENERS: Jan: Todd, enough about your shoulder injury, surgery, pain, etc. Jan --- --- --- Hi Todd (from Jennifer): This is in response to your podcast about contentment. Almost 15 years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. 2 days before my 39th birthday I received the diagnosis and was told that I needed to have a mastectomy of my left breast. I experienced the fear, sorrow, anger and all the emotions that a woman experiences when she's told she has cancer and will have one of her breasts removed. But then one day I was talking to a friend of mine at church and I was wondering why this happened to me and she said, "why not?" "Why do we get to float through life without ever facing adversity or challenges?" And she was right. It's through adversity that if we allow him, God reveals himself and works in our lives. In surrendering to him I felt his grace more than at any other time in my life. I found myself being thankful for my cancer. I was blessed because God used me to help other women who were also diagnosed with breast cancer. I was able to be there to give them hope that they could do more than just survive, they could thrive! I had the opportunity to visit a woman in the hospital just after she had her mastectomy. She was in her 20s and was scared to look at her incisions. After spending some time with her she got up the courage to face her body and come to terms with what she had lost. The biggest blessing that I have experienced since my cancer diagnosis was when my father in law was diagnosed with stomach cancer. I was the only one in the family who had experienced cancer so he was able to talk to me in a way that he couldn't with the other family members. I made a binder for all of his paperwork just like the one I made for myself, I gave him tips that helped get through treatment and I didn't talk to him in a grim manner like most people did. He got through his treatment and is doing well. Cancer is certainly something I don't want to experience a second time, but I'm not sorry I got it. I wouldn't ever want to give up the blessings that I received, and the way that God used me to bless others, as a result of my diagnosis. You'll come back from your injury and think of how God can use this to his glory! That's what I pray for you. God bless, --- --- --- --- Deb B.: Finding contentment.
