In school right now, my daughter has been tasked with writing a hymn. How would you feel if I invited you to do the same? What would you write about? What aspect of God would you want to focus on? How has He been revealing Himself to you lately? How are you longing for Him to reveal Himself to you? In this bonus episode, I'm going to share an original poem I wrote years ago that focuses on God's love for me in spite of all my sin.

We love nothing more than when our guests share stories of how they've grown in their faith even if those stories cover situations not widely talked about. The pressure on women to be married by a certain age is still a real thing in our churches and Charity Gayle's wonderful testimony has all of us contemplating how we can grow in contentment.Charity is known for a lot of amazing songs right now that include I Speak Jesus, Thank You Jesus For The Blood, and We Need A Miracle, but we've known Charity for almost a decade when she first hit the Song Discovery stage singing the songs that the Holy Spirit gave to her. We know her heart to be pure and we couldn't be more thrilled to see how her voice has been amplified. She's a person worth listening to because she truly lives out her faith. The scripture she references is worth reading daily:Luke 12:27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,[d] yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28 But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! 29 And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried.Lord, we too pray for all our listeners to breed contentment in their daily lives through a life of faith and trust in your Word. We believe your Word to be true. Amen- - - - -Sponsor InformationWorship Leader Institutehttps://www.worshipleaderinstitute.com/coachingAdditional Links https://www.charitygayle.com/https://www.instagram.com/worshipleader/https://worshipleader.com/all-podcasts/https://authenticmedia.company/ https://worshipleader.com/all-podcasts/our-host/Who is Charity Gayle? Charity houses a powerful voice that has a fresh yet reminiscent sound. She loves the Lord with fierce faith and was raised in a home full of worship and has been involved in ministry since she was a child. Growing up in Buffalo, NY, Charity was a part of a culture that thrives in the spirit of unity while celebrating diversity. Surrounded by worship and the Word, her love for praising Jesus through music grew as she did. One of her favorite things growing up was watching her mom direct choir at Thursday night choir practice and by the age of 16, she was directing multiple choirs herself. “I love harmonies in gospel music. I think about Heaven being full of every type of voice from every nation, finding their part and praising God at the top of their lungs together around the Throne.”She spent two years in Nashville in 2014 and 2015 where she fell more in love with the art of writing songs for the church. Focusing on bridging the gap between worship and gospel music, she has authored songs like ‘Amen' ‘Psalm 100 (Enter In), Cleansed and ‘New Name Written Down in Glory'. Her first record, ‘Lord, You are my Song, debuted at #1 in the Christian and gospel genre in January 2018. She recently released her sophomore album ‘Endless Praise' in Sept. 2021, featuring the song ‘Thank You Jesus for the Blood' also debuting at #1. Most recently, Charity received a Dove Award for the song ‘Benediction (As You Go)' on Selah's record, “Firm Foundation”. Charity lives and leads worship with her husband, Ryan Kennedy. They are cultivating a movement for 24-hour prayer and worship called GatherHouse, and are continuing to write and spread the gospel in the US and globally.
George & Scott Reall in a part 2 conversation about transformation in our lives for a new year and this season of Epiphany. SLIDES READ BY GEORGE Epiphany is a wonderful celebration for those who are committing themselves more deeply to the process of spiritual transformation, for it contains themes of journeying from the known to the unknown with only a mysterious light to guide us. It has to do with seeing something new on the horizon that stirs something new in us. We don't just talk about our desire; we walk toward it with great intention, making concrete choices along the way. -Ruth Haley Barton To love is to change. And to love perfectly is to change many times. -John Henry Newman Name your deaths. Claim your births. Grieve and adjust. Do not cling. Receive new life. Nature follows this pattern. Jesus Christ followed this pattern. Our lives follow this pattern—unless we fight it! -Fr. Ronald Rolheiser
Karen Johnson's fast-paced professional life came to an abrupt halt when she lost her 27-year-old son to a heroin overdose. Rather than grieve in a way that made people around her comfortable, she did the unexpected: she retired, sold her house and all of her household goods, and went on a two-and-a-half-year journey that took her all over the world, finding a spiritual practice along the way. She is the author of Living Grieving. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
Marriages can find themselves in places of despair. Marriages often assume the problems are symptoms of waning affection. Yet what is actually present is neurodiversity. In this episode of Breaking Bread, Kaleb Beyer educates us on the impact ADHD can have on marriage relationships and the hope that can be breathed into a marriage when this is understood. Show Notes: What is neurodiversity? The neurodiverse brain is contrasted with the neurotypical brain. The neurodiverse brain thinks, responds to its environment and interacts with emotions outside of the normative operating neurotypical brain. This condition is diagnosed, for example, as autistic, dyslexic, or ADHD (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder). What is ADHD? ADHD stands for Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder. This is a diagnosable disorder. An individual with ADHD has the ability to hyperfocus. Often, they can be exciting, fun, creative, in the moment and flexible. Those with ADHD can struggle to prioritize matters that need attention. They have a higher threshold for experiencing rewarding satisfaction and therefore require more stimulus. These attributes create symptoms of distractibility and impulsivity. How can ADHD impact marriage? When couples do not understand how ADHD is playing out in their marriage relationship, they run the risk of making the wrong meaning out of unfortunate interactions. Consider the examples below: Lack of follow through by ADHD spouse is wrongly interpreted as lack of care. Distracted ADHD spouse during conversation is wrongly interpreted as not valuing spouse. What proactive steps can the ADHD spouse make? Get a diagnosis from a professional. Become educated on ADHD. Treat the biology through diet, sleep, exercise and medicine. Learn coping skills. Build relational skills. What proactive steps can the non-ADHD spouse make? Become educated on ADHD. Grieve the unmet expectation of what marriage was “supposed” to be. Avoid reinforcing the negative unsuccessful interactions that historically has been used on your ADHD spouse. For example, nagging. Rebuild trust by measuring it differently. Instead of measuring “follow through” on requests, measure “follow through” of applying oneself to the treatment ADHD requires. What hope is there for marital health? Beautiful marriages are possible when neurodiverse and neurotypical spouses live wisely with one another.
I can't tell you how often I've sat in a movie theater watching the previews for coming attractions and thought to myself, "What's the point of seeing the movie now? The trailer told me everything that's going to happen!" The bad news is that the trailer ruined the end of the story; the good news is I saved myself ten bucks by not needing to see the movie! But sometimes, the end of the story is not the story. We see that in the cross, and Jesus' empty tomb as the story continues in the life of the church. We also see it in the story of Jesus raising his friend Lazarus from the dead. Is the story really about Lazarus living again, or is there more than just the end of the story? There's more happening than just Jesus raising Lazarus to life. Through the story, we see him raising the faith of his disciples, Lazarus' sisters, and the whole community. And the story doesn't end there because he still raises our faith through what he did for Lazarus.
Show Notes: What are the rules, and the must-do's when we face a loss? Who is Jorge Valdes Ph.D.? As a young man in his twenties with an insatiable thirst for money and power, Jorge Valdes worked his way up inside Colombia's powerful drug cartel as head of U.S. operations for a group that would go on and becomes the Medellin Drug Cartel. This Cuban immigrant, raised in poverty, was living a high life in more ways than one. Jorge Valdes Ph.D. today shares the life principles he experienced in his time as an ex-drug lord in the hopes that everyone will gain hope, wisdom, inspiration, and truth from the secrets hidden in the ultimate NARCO MINDSET. All proceeds of any merchandise sold by Dr. Valdes go to sending books to prisoners across America.

There can be few more fearful prospects for a Christian or a church than that of grieving the Holy Spirit. I wonder how many of us ever contemplate this, searching our own hearts and lives, considering the life of the church, and asking whether or not we are guilty of such a sin- Spurgeon reminds us of this horrible possibility, explaining how and why it may come about. He also explores some of the ugly consequences of grieving the third Person of the Godhead, the damage it does in the life of the church and her members. Finally, he urges a personal argument why the saints should not grieve the Holy Spirit. Of course, the preacher's aim is not merely to bring us down, still less to keep us down. Rather, the desire is to diagnose and to prescribe, to make us aware of the dangers so that we might either avoid them or address them. While some may be prone to assume that they have grieved the Holy Ghost in some way, too quick to jump to this conclusion, it seems likely today that the opposite problem more prevails-that of failing to consider whether or not one of the reasons for the weakness of the church is that we have distressed the Spirit of God. Here the question is put, here a solution is proposed.

Ephesians 4:30 — What does it mean to “grieve the Holy Spirit?” In this sermon on grieving the Holy Spirit from Ephesians 4:30, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones speaks of Paul's statement that encompasses all the particulars that he had been talking about in the preceding verses. Importantly, it also serves to differentiate Christian ethics from any other ethical tradition. If a Christian's morality is not rooted in this purpose and understanding of sinning against God, then it is not Christian at all. Paul's point is this: any wrong living grieves the Holy Spirit because the Holy Spirit is the seal of the Christian's inheritance and indwells those who are saved. All sin runs counter to the character of God and grieves Him greatly. Dr. Lloyd-Jones says that when one becomes a Christian, their relationship to God becomes one of love instead of one as a lawbreaker. Thus, when one sins, they must not be grieved because they have broken His law, but rather because they have sinned against His great love for them. Understanding this, it is easy to see why it is such a serious thing to sin and grieve the Holy Spirit. How can this be countered? Dr. Lloyd-Jones says that the Christian must constantly be aware of the Lord's presence. As people are reverent around royalty, Christians must remember that God is constantly with them and act accordingly. This will drive them to a desire to honor and please Him with their lives.
Saying the mourner's Kaddish, preparations for burial, and memorial services: rituals with our faith community help us know what to do in the disorienting days and months after we lose a loved one. They vary between faith traditions and get personalized within families, but all can bring comfort when we need it most.Guest Meli Solomon, author of the Living Our Beliefs podcast, shares her experiences with how faith helped her move forward after a loss.
How do you overcome temptation, sometimes it feels like there is no way to get past it. Today, Kent preaches on this from the life of Jesus in Section 18 as well as Interviews Trainer Joe from Lexington. IT'S EASY TO GIVE at Harmony, text any amount to (859) 459-0316 to get started (or give online @ my.harmonychurch.cc/give ). ----------- OPENING ILLUSTRATION: Do you know one of the reasons so many people make new years resolutions? It's because we spent so much time giving into temptation over Christmas. I always joked that I gained 2lbs for every day we were at Jenni's mom & dad's house over Christmas because everywhere I went there were literally piles of cookies. What do you do when you've spent your whole life giving in to temptation? b This morning, we are going to look at a snapshot of Jesus' life when He faced temptation then I have a special guest I want to bring out and we're going to have a discussion around temptation. So, if you want to open your bibles to Mt 4. This is right after Jesus gets baptized by John B. He is led out into the wilderness - this is a dry barren place in Israel with little oasis' of springs & palm trees. Listen to what Jesus did.. Matthew 4:1-11 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” 4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'” You get the picture? Jesus hasn't eaten for 40 days. I fasted 11 days one time, I thought I was going to die - I was only drinking water and then I decided to add in fruit juices. I got so crazy sick from it. Here is Jesus after 40 days - he's not just hungry, he's likely in a position where His body is breaking down muscle at this point. -Satan comes and tells him to turn the stones into bread… This is a temptation for Jesus because He COULD have done it. He could have turned those stones to bread and just eaten them. But Jesus resists the temptation and quotes the scripture from Duet 8 “man shall not live on bread alone” This scripture is where God is telling the Israelites he let them go Hungry and then fed them with manna so they would learn that man lives by God's word, not by anything else. Jesus is not willing to step past what the Father has called Him to for a quick fix… Oof, that's a gut punch for me… I don't know about you. How often do you settle for a quick fix and miss what God may be intending for us if we had just held out? I don't know if you can feel it, but Jesus cannot be in a good mental space right now… People are most susceptible to temptation when they are tired, lonely, or hurting. b Jesus is likely experiencing all three of those things b What do you do when you experience such deep temptations? when you are at your weakest? Jesus will go on to be tempted to test God's love for Him and to get worship and power through idolatry, and in each of these temptations, Jesus goes the distance. Listen to this quote from CS Lewis about temptation: “No man knows how bad he is till he has tried very hard to be good. A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is. After all, you find out the strength of the German army by fighting against it, not by giving in. You find out the strength of a wind by trying to walk against it, not by lying down. A man who gives in to temptation after five minutes simply does not know what it would have been like an hour later. That is why bad people, in one sense, know very little about badness — they have lived a sheltered life by always giving in. We never find out the strength of the evil impulse inside us until we try to fight it: and Christ, because He was the only man who never yielded to temptation, is also the only man who knows to the full what temptation means — the only complete realist.” So, let me ask you this question… How do you go the distance when tempted? b Isn't that the question? If we could figure out how to resist temptation, we wouldn't need New Years' Resolutions. This morning, I want to introduce you to a friend of mine, that I've gotten to know thanks to David Burchfield.. You guys know I've struggled with my weight for most of my life. In July of last year, I was 314 lbs. I had gone to Israel and all the walking destroyed my knees - you guys don't know this, but I had gotten to the point where I was having to sit on my butt to scoot down the stairs of our house because I physically couldn't stand it. I finally, after watching David lose weight, joined the program David was doing has lost over 140 lbs and my life was transformed. The difference was, I thought it was going to be a diet, but really, what I learned was to apply what I know about other temptations to the temptation that most fully grabbed my heart - you can learn more about the program tonight if you want, but this morning, I want to talk to Trainer Joe Olliges about temptation because He brings a really unique view to this… Would you guys welcome Trainer Joe Olliges to the stage Questions: I've heard you talk a bunch about this passage of Jesus being tempted, and you got me thinking about it in a way I hadn't thought of it before, could you share that with us? What is it that you think keeps so many of us beholden to giving into temptations - I know your specialty is food, but those truths carry over into other areas? Why do you think so many Christians are willing to settle for lies and ignore the truth? What are things you think everyone needs in their life for someone to overcome temptation? Why do you think so many people in your program are successful? What is it that makes someone successful at resisting temptation? CLOSER: Will you all give it up for Trainer Joe? [Joe Exits] Joe, thanks so much for that! One of the things I love about Trainer Joe is he is willing to say the hard things to you. Most of us avoid hard things because it makes us uncomfortable, but hard things are what help you grow. I want to close by reading a passage from James 4, this is the brother of Jesus writing to us, I have to imagine he is remembering Jesus' temptation when he says this: James 4:7-10 7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9 Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. James doesn't pull any punches does he - he sobers you up real quick. Submit yourself to God, resist the devil and he'll flee. Come near to God, He'll come near to you… Wash your hands sinners purify your hearts, grieve mourn wail… laughter to mourning James is calling you and me out! He's saying, live in reality - take ownership of the life you've lived and turn to God - because He can lift you up! Listen the only way to overcome temptation is to exchange your lies for truth b To switch your focus from pleasing yourself to pleasing God We have some pieces of paper and pens up here at the cross. during communion, I want you to write a lie you've been believing that today on that paper and leave it at the cross, take another paper and write the truth you are going to embrace and put it somewhere you'll see it everyday! ------------
Grieving is a natural part of life. We grieve many things: a lost loved one, the death of a dream, unfulfilled expectations, or even the loss of an opportunity. Grieving in a healthy way allows us to keep living even in the midst of loss. In this episode, Kevin Geer and Justin Stewart discuss the grief process and how to grieve in a way that brings healing and health.
Stop procrastinating your feelings. If your life has become heavy, overwhelming, or anxious, THIS will lighten you up… Kim McMillen said, “When I loved myself enough I learned to grieve the hurts in life when they happen instead of making my heart heavy from lugging them around.” We all know that procrastination keeps us where we are. There is no worse type of procrastination then procrastinating your feelings. Seriously. It will keep you heavy. It will keep you fruitless, by robbing you of your fruit. Your harvest. If you don't have fruit, then you'll end up eating yourself. Remember, it's not what you're eating, as much as it is what's eating you. It will eat you from the inside out. It's time to... Face your hurts. Face your pain. Face your loss, or losses. Face yourself. It's time for a face off. Eye to eye. Nose to nose (knows to knows.) Heart to heart. It's time for a F.A.C.E. off. Feel. Grieve. Cry it out!! It's like taking out the garbage. You're grateful for what you received from what was in the containers or connected to the food, but now it no longer serves you. Let it go. Once you stop feeding the pain, you can feed the healing. Appreciate. Give thanks for yourself by acknowledging where you are in your journey. Create. Allow your emotion to put you in motion to create something new. Engage and energize. Connect with your heart and soul as you release yourself. Give yourself permission to let go of who you are to become who you're becoming. Whatever it is that you're carrying around with you, it must be worthy of your life. Is it worthy of your life? Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L. STEP: What area of your life needs to grieve? Cry it out. And F.A.C.E. it today.

As we enter into a new year, many people are experiencing grief and loss. For many, 2022 was a year of loss and grief. As a culture, we are not equipped to talk about grief—and we often run from grieving people rather than grieve with them. Today, Gary and Laura House, founders of ourheartsarehome.org join me to talk about how to minister to someone who may be in the midst of suffering.

Thanks for hanging out with me today, on Christmas. I know you're probably struggling today, so I want to walk through the lyrics of our ‘Song of the Week' and share 5 Bible verses to remind you why there is still hope. Had I not gone through the kind of pain that took my breath away, and made me doubt I'd EVER stop crying, I wouldn't be telling you how possible it is. I used to read the successful journeys from grief 2 great days of others, and I thought, yeah, that's them – it'll never happen for me. But God is no respecter of persons, so I too went from pitiful to peaceful and He gave me a calling I never expected. Regardless of how hopeless you feel today - you can still hope for a future where you can breathe again – where you can laugh again and where you can live again. WORD of the Week Romans 12:12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation and continuing constant in prayer. Song of the Week Not your typical Christmas song, so listen and see if you can't relate to the words.

Do not Love the World. The apostle John warns Christians, saying, “Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world” (1 John 2:15-16). When John writes and tells the Christian “Do not love the world”, he's not talking about the physical planet. The Greek word κόσμος kosmos as it is used by the apostle John and others most often refers to “that which is hostile to God…lost in sin, wholly at odds with anything divine, ruined and depraved.” The world, or world-system, originated with Satan and consists of those philosophies and values that perpetually influence humanity to think and behave contrary to God and His Word. The world-system is mankind and society functioning without God, and is first and foremost a mindset that is antithetical to divine viewpoint. Lewis S. Chafer explains: "The kosmos is a vast order or system that Satan has promoted which conforms to his ideals, aims, and methods. It is civilization now functioning apart from God-a civilization in which none of its promoters really expect God to share; who assign to God no consideration in respect to their projects, nor do they ascribe any causality to Him. This system embraces its godless governments, conflicts, armaments, jealousies; its education, culture, religions of morality, and pride. It is that sphere in which man lives. It is what he sees, what he employs. To the uncounted multitude it is all they ever know so long as they live on this earth. It is properly styled “The Satanic System” which phrase is in many instances a justified interpretation of the so-meaningful word, kosmos." Satan's world system is a spiritual darkness that envelopes and permeates the human race, influencing every aspect of thought and behavior in such a way that the depraved nature of man is magnified while God is excluded. We should be careful to understand that Satan's system is a buffet that offers something for everyone who rejects God, whether he is moral or immoral, religious or irreligious, educated or simple, rich or poor. Satan is careful to make sure there's even something for the Christian in his world-system, which is why the Bible repeatedly warns the believer not to love the world or the things in the world. We are to be set apart (Col 2:8; Jam 1:27; 4:4; 1 John 2:15-16). Robert Lightner states: "The world is the Christian's enemy because it represents an anti-God system, a philosophy that is diametrically opposed to the will and plan of God. It is a system headed by the devil and therefore at odds with God (2 Cor 4:4). Likewise, the world hates the believer who lives for Christ (John 17:14). The Lord never kept this a secret from his own. He told them often of the coming conflict with the world (e.g., John 15:18-20; 16:1-3; 32-33; cf. 2 Tim 3:1-12). It is in this wicked world we must rear our families and earn our livelihoods. We are in it, yet are not to be a part of it." Do not Quench the Spirit. Paul wrote to the church at Thessalonica and said, “Do not quench the Spirit” (1 Th 5:19). The word “quench” translates the Greek word σβέννυμι sbennumi which means to “stifle or suppress.” The word carries the idea of dowsing water on a fire so as to extinguish it. To “quench the Spirit” is to resist His revealed will and not follow as He leads. The Holy Spirit wants to work in our lives, but we must let Him have His way, and this means yielding, or submitting to Him on a regular basis, as opportunity permits; however, the Spirit does not force us to be spiritual, therefore He can be resisted. John Walvoord states, “Quenching the Spirit may simply be defined as being unyielded to Him, or saying, ‘No.' The issue is, therefore, the question of willingness to do His will.” Do not Grieve the Spirit. To the church at Ephesus, Paul wrote, “Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption” (Eph 4:30). The Spirit is a Person, and He is grieved with us as Christians when we sin and act contrary to His holy character. Our sin hurts our relationship with Him and hinders His work in our lives. Grieving the Spirit is a willful act on our part when we think and behave sinfully. John Walvoord writes: "The Scriptures often testify to the fact that the Spirit of God is holy and that He is a person. The indwelling presence of this holy person constitutes the body of a believer a temple of God. In the nature of the case, the presence of sin in any form grieves the Holy Spirit. Accordingly, when the Christian is exhorted to “grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, in whom ye were sealed unto the day of redemption” (Eph 4:30), it is an appeal to allow nothing in his life contrary to the holiness of the Spirit. It is clear that the one cause of grieving the Holy Spirit is sin." When the Christian is walking as he should, according to Scripture, then the Holy Spirit can work through him to touch the lives of others. When the Christian commits sin, then the Spirit is grieved and His ministry to others is diminished, and the Spirit must then begin to work on the heart of the Christian to bring him back into fellowship. Lewis S. Chafer states, “Sin destroys spirituality. It is necessarily so; for where sin is tolerated in the believer's daily life, the Spirit, who indwells him, must then turn from His blessed ministry through him, to a pleading ministry to him.” Restore Broken Fellowship with God Through Confession of Personal Sin. All believers sin, and there are none who attain perfection in this life (Pro 20:9; Eccl 7:20; 1 John 1:8-10). For this reason, familial forgiveness is necessary for a healthy relationship with God. David understood the folly of trying to conceal his sins, which resulted in psychological disequilibrium and pain; however, when he confessed his sin, God forgave him (Psa 32:2-5). John wrote, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). God forgives because it is His nature to do so, for He “merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth” (Psa 86:15; cf. Psa 103:8-14). And He is able to forgive because Christ has atoned for our sins at the cross, satisfying the Father's righteous demands regarding our offenses. The apostle John wrote, “My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; 2 and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world” (1 John 2:1-2). The challenge for many believers is to trust God at His word and accept His forgiveness and not operate on guilty feelings. William MacDonald states: "The forgiveness John speaks about here [i.e., 1 John 1:9] is parental, not judicial. Judicial forgiveness means forgiveness from the penalty of sins, which the sinner receives when he believes on the Lord Jesus Christ. It is called judicial because it is granted by God acting as Judge. But what about sins which a person commits after conversion? As far as the penalty is concerned, the price has already been paid by the Lord Jesus on the cross of Calvary. But as far as fellowship in the family of God is concerned, the sinning saint needs parental forgiveness, that is, the forgiveness of His Father. He obtains it by confessing his sin. We need judicial forgiveness only once; that takes care of the penalty of all our sins—past, present, and future. But we need parental forgiveness throughout our Christian life."

There are few characters from early Pennsylvania history more mysterious and fascinating than Johannes Kelpius, “the hermit of the Wissahickon” whose intellectual and spiritual life is the stuff of legend, centuries after his death. Kelpius embodied many of the deep traditions of European religious devotional life that found expression in early Pennsylvania—Pietism and mysticism included. In this episode of Cloister Talk, Dr. Timothy Grieve-Carlson welcomes us into the world of Kelpius's spirituality as it connects to early modern understandings of nature and the environment and discusses Kelpius's lasting resonance as a religious pioneer of sorts. Professor Grieve-Carlson also walks us through his research process and reflects on future pathways in Pennsylvania German studies.
What if, instead of expecting ourselves and those around us to move on from the loss of a loved one, we made space for loss to become part of the new life being created? This is a very exciting episode as it is our very first live episode recorded at our annual gala! We are joined by the incredible grief educator and motivational speaker, Hannah Stonehouse Hudson, to discuss how she navigated the loss of an infant and her husband in the light of publicity that followed a viral photograph she took. Listening in to this potentially triggering emotional discussion, you'll hear all about the shocking premonition Hannah's husband had about his death (and how it prepared her), the beautiful photo Hannah took that went viral, why her husband's death was public and how she handled it, and how she was inspired to use the internet to help others with their grief. Grief is like a fingerprint, unique to each and every individual, and today Hannah encourages us to refrain from judging ourselves in our grieving process and rather give ourselves ‘time, grace, and space.' We also discuss how Hannah has gotten through difficulties before looking into how to support people through loss, why nobody actually knows what to do or say, and how allowing people to feel and experience things in their own way is impactful. Finally, she shares some research she has done on grief and leaves us with the powerful comfort that our loved ones are always with us. Please note that this podcast carries a trigger warning for death and grief so please listen with care.

Joining us today is Clinical Psychologist and the Author of Touching Two Worlds, Dr. Sherry Walling. Dr. Sherry has been treating patients for trauma, stress, and grief for over 20 years, and in 2017, the loss of her father and brother gave her a front-row seat to the type of devastation she'd been helping others navigate. She combined what she'd learned when studying both theology and psychology with her own personal experience, to develop a memoir that is as heart-wrenching and personal as it is informative and cathartic. We talk about understanding depression as a disease, how to be present in both grief and joy, why healing requires truth-telling, and how to speak to your kids about grief and loss. Dr. Sherry then explains why we need to change the societal narrative around suicide, the best practices when you are experiencing grief, how to speak to someone when they are grieving, and how the circus can be way more than just comical relief! Please note that this episode carries a trigger warning for loss, depression, and suicide.

In your heart, what do you believe freedom from unwanted sexual behaviors looks like, feels like?In this episode of Sacred by Design, we'll unpack the many-layered gift of true freedom. God sees you and loves you, right where you are.He is inviting you to freedom of immeasurably more than just staying within practical boundaries.Together, lets redefine freedom.Highlights:Accept the process: we know that god can come in and instantaneously remove whatever the struggle is. And, that's what makes it so much harder to accept that it might be a process and it might look differently than what god thinks.Grieve: take the time to be sad that the process looks different, that freedom wont happen overnight. It isn't gods intention for us to suffer through sin but because of this fallen world, there are some things were going to suffer through. We are experiencing things that the lord did not intend for us to experience.We have an enemy who wants us to think that god is after perfection.Listen for the enemy's voice: see, you cant even make it a week. Whats wrong with you? You're not a good christian. You did all this stuff and its not even working. And then, the voice shifts some more and says, you know what, this is probably who you really are. So why are you fighting it? Or hey, its okay if you do this again.Perfection is not freedom.Freedom is not only the absence of your unwanted sexual behavior but its the presence of Jesus in his power in your life.Remember: sanctification is a process.The fruit of the spirit is self-control. So, when you are allowing the presence of Jesus to be with you then the spirit within you is the one who will help you with the self-control.Romans 6:22 but now, having been set free from sin and having been enslaved to god; you have your fruit leading to sanctification and its end is eternal life.True freedom: you have matured in a way that you have the proper response when temptation comes - not that you don't have to deal with it anymore but that because you have connected yourself to Christ and allowed him into these spaces.Help the showSupport the showAsk a question by emailing usLeave a reviewSubscribe wherever you get your podcastsFollow us on YouTube for behind the scenes and more

Guest: Clayton Kendall Clayton and Ashley lost their third son Myers Crawford Kendall unexpectedly on April 12, 2018. Here is Myers' obituary. I am very thankful to Clayton for taking the time to share his experience and the life lessons he learned walking through the grief process in hopes of helping others who are grieving. Do men handle grief well - or do men generally stuff their emotions, hide their true feelings, and not proceed through the grief process well? The grief process will look differently as you walk through it - and how you grieve will be different than how others grieve. Learn to give space and grace to others. You need a good community and good relationships to help you walk through difficult times. There are times you need space…but you also need guys around you to encourage and challenge you when needed. Clayton's suggestions for walking well through grief: Grief is designed by God and when you respond well you will find that the Lord will draw near to the broken-hearted. Don't retreat, don't isolate. Talk with others, be open. Surround yourself with those you know, trust, and love. Recommended Resources: A Grief Observed by C.S.

For additional notes and resources check out Douglas' website.BackgroundThe mid-8th C. was a heady time for both kingdoms, becauseSyria (Aram) was drained from its exertions in resisting Assyria.Egypt was weak, thus constituting no southern threat.Assyria was preoccupied with the kingdom of Urartu.Israel's smaller neighbors, Phoenicia, Philistia. Ammon, Moab, and Edom, posed no threat.The prophet now shifts his attack to the rich and powerful men (having already criticized the callous upper class women in chapter 4).Complacent (6:1-7)In heady times, it is easy to grow complacent.Zion is Jerusalem.The southern kingdom of Judah was not much more righteous than the northern kingdom of Israel.Israel, despite its (false claims) to be God's people (the true Zion), were not!Samaria and the entire kingdom of which it was the capital went into captivity nearly a century and a half before the kingdom of Judah was exiled.Israel was no better than other kingdoms (v.2).Lives of luxury are reprehensible when basic physical and spiritual needs in others are going unmet!The operative word is "lounge."These people are drinking wine straight from the bowl!Note: anointing was part of daily personal hygiene (as in Matthew 6). It also kills body lice.Meat (probably lamb) was a great delicacy, at a time when most tasted meat only 3x/year. (See Luke 15:23.)They cared only for themselves and the perks that come with power.Their creative energies went into music, not into helping the poor. Their priorities were skewed.Historical sidelights:Harvard University expeditions of 1908-1910 found potsherd inscriptions at Samaria recording deliveries of jugs of old (well fermented and textured) wine and refined olive oil.An ivory carving from Megiddo depicts a noble quaffing her thirst from a bowl while a servant is playing the lute.Exile is certain! "Your feasting and lounging will end!"Devastation and a dismal post-war scene (6:8-14)A pattern of military victory will not, in the case of Israel, avert ultimate military defeat. The homes of which they were so proud will be smashed to pieces.As useless as plowing the sea with oxen, or plowing the rocky crags with horses. Donkeys can manage the rocks, not horses. Either way, Israel's self-directed efforts are ultimately worthless. Word-play: Lo-debar -- nothing (not a thing). Their efforts have been in vain, their military achievements meaningless. (As though Robin Hood were to call Nottingham "Nothingham.")The nation to be stirred up is none other than Assyria!Thought questionsDoes Amos 6:1 apply to me? Am I one of those who could be described as "complacent in Zion?"Am I living for luxury, status, indulgent pleasures, guilty of conspicuous consumption?Do I have to live at my present standard of living?Calculate how many hours a week you are working to pay your rent or mortgage, meals, entertainment, etc. Do your budgetary priorities reflect your spiritual convictions? (They usually do!) Our use of time (the Lord's time) should follow biblical priorities.Am I grieving over the ruin of Joseph?Grieving over the fractured and faithless state of most groups that claim to be following Christ?Grieve when your local church is not growing spiritually / numerically?Grieving over the pain, alienation, lostness and ultimate condemnation of the world?Does my involvement in evangelism reflect my conviction about the lostness of the world?Are we taking excessive pride in our own accomplishments, as though they can shield us from the Judgment day?Advanced:V.2: Calneh and Hamath are in Syria. Cities suggest human ingenuity, strength, and achievement. But (Hebrews 13:14) we have here no continuing city. Our city is above (also a theme in Revelation).V.8: "by himself" is literally "by his throat," an image underscoring the seriousness of keeping the oath.V.10: Not mentioning the name of the Lord is susceptible of several interpretations. Should his name not be mentioned because of the risk of further judgment? or for shame? or because it would be fruitless, given Israel's abandonment by the Lord? The text is not clear.V.12: One doesn't plow there (or doesn't plow the sea, depending on a single consonant [yam or sham]).Karnaim (v.13) is a Hebrew dual form meaning (two) horns. Horns represented power.
Artificial Intelligence is a fascinating field that has made tremendous development over the past few years. From GPT-3 to Dall-e and Stable Diffusion, the vastness of the scope of applications for AI and neural computing is becoming clearer than ever. At the base layer, there is a need for decentralized p2p AI compute platform that provides flexible access to the wider public. Gensyn sets out on the mission to provide just that by building a market place protocol for AI compute - ultra-low cost, hyperscale, permissionless.In today's episode we are joined by the project's co-founders Ben Fielding and Harry Grieve. We take a deep dive into the current landscape for AI and AI compute, the reasonings and trade-offs in building Gensyn, the protocol's focus and edge cases, and how the protocol is utilizing the blockchain technology as both incentive layer and credibly neutral platform.Topics covered in this episode:The founders' background and reasonings for development on BlockchainThe current state of AI development and breakdown of AI conceptsThe current landscape for AI modeling and computeGensyn's difference to other protocols, such as GolemHow Gensyn is adhering to the decentralized default, and making trade-offs in product buildingBuilding Gensyn as a Layer-1 protocolDeep dive into the Gensyn Protocol and edge casesOther players in the protocol: solvers, verifiers, and whistle blowersBuilding a blockchainEpisode links: GensynGensyn on TwitterBen Fielding on TwitterHarry Grieve on TwitterSponsors: Tally Ho: Tally Ho is a new wallet for Web3 and DeFi that sees the wallet as a public good.

After enduring multiple tumultuous relationships in her early 20s, Victoria Robinson had one close call with abortion before she ultimately went through with another. This experience inevitably had profound effects on her mental health and left her with significant trauma that intensified the longer she kept it a secret. The truth, however, began to surface in her life as she attempted to heal. That's when, after over a decade, she finally had contact with the father of her aborted child. Their conversation completely altered her perspective of the men impacted by abortion. Unbeknownst to her, his life had been ruined, too.
