Proper 23 First Psalm: Psalms 146–147 Psalms 146–147 (Listen) Put Not Your Trust in Princes 146 Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul!2 I will praise the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being. 3 Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.4 When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish. 5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God,6 who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever;7 who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets the prisoners free;8 the LORD opens the eyes of the blind. The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down; the LORD loves the righteous.9 The LORD watches over the sojourners; he upholds the widow and the fatherless, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin. 10 The LORD will reign forever, your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the LORD! He Heals the Brokenhearted 147 Praise the LORD! For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant,1 and a song of praise is fitting.2 The LORD builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the outcasts of Israel.3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.4 He determines the number of the stars; he gives to all of them their names.5 Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure.6 The LORD lifts up the humble;2 he casts the wicked to the ground. 7 Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving; make melody to our God on the lyre!8 He covers the heavens with clouds; he prepares rain for the earth; he makes grass grow on the hills.9 He gives to the beasts their food, and to the young ravens that cry.10 His delight is not in the strength of the horse, nor his pleasure in the legs of a man,11 but the LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love. 12 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion!13 For he strengthens the bars of your gates; he blesses your children within you.14 He makes peace in your borders; he fills you with the finest of the wheat.15 He sends out his command to the earth; his word runs swiftly.16 He gives snow like wool; he scatters frost like ashes.17 He hurls down his crystals of ice like crumbs; who can stand before his cold?18 He sends out his word, and melts them; he makes his wind blow and the waters flow.19 He declares his word to Jacob, his statutes and rules3 to Israel.20 He has not dealt thus with any other nation; they do not know his rules.4 Praise the LORD! Footnotes  147:1 Or for he is beautiful  147:6 Or afflicted  147:19 Or and just decrees  147:20 Or his just decrees (ESV) Second Psalm: Psalms 111–113 Psalms 111–113 (Listen) Great Are the Lord's Works 111 1 Praise the LORD! I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation.2 Great are the works of the LORD, studied by all who delight in them.3 Full of splendor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever.4 He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered; the LORD is gracious and merciful.5 He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever.6 He has shown his people the power of his works, in giving them the inheritance of the nations.7 The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy;8 they are established forever and ever, to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.9 He sent redemption to his people; he has commanded his covenant forever. Holy and awesome is his name!10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever! The Righteous Will Never Be Moved 112 2 Praise the LORD! Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in his commandments!2 His offspring will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.3 Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.4 Light dawns in the darkness for the upright; he is gracious, merciful, and righteous.5 It is well with the man who deals generously and lends; who conducts his affairs with justice.6 For the righteous will never be moved; he will be remembered forever.7 He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD.8 His heart is steady;3 he will not be afraid, until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.9 He has distributed freely; he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever; his horn is exalted in honor.10 The wicked man sees it and is angry; he gnashes his teeth and melts away; the desire of the wicked will perish! Who Is like the Lord Our God? 113 Praise the LORD! Praise, O servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD! 2 Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and forevermore!3 From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the LORD is to be praised! 4 The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens!5 Who is like the LORD our God, who is seated on high,6 who looks far down on the heavens and the earth?7 He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap,8 to make them sit with princes, with the princes of his people.9 He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children. Praise the LORD!

You shall read them also in the hearing of all the men of Judah who come out of their cities. 7 It may be that their plea for mercy will come before the LORD, and that every one will turn from his evil way, for great is the anger and wrath that the LORD has pronounced against this people.” 8 And Baruch the son of Neriah did all that Jeremiah the prophet ordered him about reading from the scroll the words of the LORD in the LORD's house. 9 In the fifth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, in the ninth month, all the people in Jerusalem and all the people who came from the cities of Judah to Jerusalem proclaimed a fast before the LORD. 10 Then, in the hearing of all the people, Baruch read the words of Jeremiah from the scroll, in the house of the LORD, in the chamber of Gemariah the son of Shaphan the secretary, which was in the upper court, at the entry of the New Gate of the LORD's house. (ESV) New Testament: Acts 14:8–18 Acts 14:8–18 (Listen) Paul and Barnabas at Lystra 8 Now at Lystra there was a man sitting who could not use his feet. He was crippled from birth and had never walked. 9 He listened to Paul speaking. And Paul, looking intently at him and seeing that he had faith to be made well,1 10 said in a loud voice, “Stand upright on your feet.” And he sprang up and began walking. 11 And when the crowds saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in Lycaonian, “The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!” 12 Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul, Hermes, because he was the chief speaker. 13 And the priest of Zeus, whose temple was at the entrance to the city, brought oxen and garlands to the gates and wanted to offer sacrifice with the crowds. 14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of it, they tore their garments and rushed out into the crowd, crying out, 15 “Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men, of like nature with you, and we bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them. 16 In past generations he allowed all the nations to walk in their own ways. 17 Yet he did not leave himself without witness, for he did good by giving you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness.” 18 Even with these words they scarcely restrained the people from offering sacrifice to them.

One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 42 When they could not pay, he cancelled the debt of both. Now which of them will love him more?” 43 Simon answered, “The one, I suppose, for whom he cancelled the larger debt.” And he said to him, “You have judged rightly.” 44 Then turning toward the woman he said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave me no water for my feet, but she has wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 45 You gave me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not ceased to kiss my feet. 46 You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment. 47 Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little.” 48 And he said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” 49 Then those who were at table with him began to say among1 themselves, “Who is this, who even forgives sins?” 50 And he said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.” Footnotes  7:49 Or to (ESV)

Old Testament: Isaiah 29–30 Isaiah 29–30 (Listen) The Siege of Jerusalem 29 Ah, Ariel, Ariel, the city where David encamped! Add year to year; let the feasts run their round.2 Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be moaning and lamentation, and she shall be to me like an Ariel.13 And I will encamp against you all around, and will besiege you with towers and I will raise siegeworks against you.4 And you will be brought low; from the earth you shall speak, and from the dust your speech will be bowed down; your voice shall come from the ground like the voice of a ghost, and from the dust your speech shall whisper. 5 But the multitude of your foreign foes shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the ruthless like passing chaff. And in an instant, suddenly,6 you will be visited by the LORD of hosts with thunder and with earthquake and great noise, with whirlwind and tempest, and the flame of a devouring fire.7 And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, all that fight against her and her stronghold and distress her, shall be like a dream, a vision of the night.8 As when a hungry man dreams, and behold, he is eating, and awakes with his hunger not satisfied, or as when a thirsty man dreams, and behold, he is drinking, and awakes faint, with his thirst not quenched, so shall the multitude of all the nations be that fight against Mount Zion. 9 Astonish yourselves2 and be astonished; blind yourselves and be blind! Be drunk,3 but not with wine; stagger,4 but not with strong drink!10 For the LORD has poured out upon you a spirit of deep sleep, and has closed your eyes (the prophets), and covered your heads (the seers). 11 And the vision of all this has become to you like the words of a book that is sealed. When men give it to one who can read, saying, “Read this,” he says, “I cannot, for it is sealed.” 12 And when they give the book to one who cannot read, saying, “Read this,” he says, “I cannot read.” 13 And the Lord said: “Because this people draw near with their mouth and honor me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment taught by men,14 therefore, behold, I will again do wonderful things with this people, with wonder upon wonder; and the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the discernment of their discerning men shall be hidden.” 15 Ah, you who hide deep from the LORD your counsel, whose deeds are in the dark, and who say, “Who sees us? Who knows us?”16 You turn things upside down! Shall the potter be regarded as the clay, that the thing made should say of its maker, “He did not make me”; or the thing formed say of him who formed it, “He has no understanding”? 17 Is it not yet a very little while until Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be regarded as a forest?18 In that day the deaf shall hear the words of a book, and out of their gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind shall see.19 The meek shall obtain fresh joy in the LORD, and the poor among mankind shall exult in the Holy One of Israel.20 For the ruthless shall come to nothing and the scoffer cease, and all who watch to do evil shall be cut off,21 who by a word make a man out to be an offender, and lay a snare for him who reproves in the gate, and with an empty plea turn aside him who is in the right. 22 Therefore thus says the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob: “Jacob shall no more be ashamed, no more shall his face grow pale.23 For when he sees his children, the work of my hands, in his midst, they will sanctify my name; they will sanctify the Holy One of Jacob and will stand in awe of the God of Israel.24 And those who go astray in spirit will come to understanding, and those who murmur will accept instruction.” Do Not Go Down to Egypt 30 “Ah, stubborn children,” declares the LORD, “who carry out a plan, but not mine, and who make an alliance,5 but not of my Spirit, that they may add sin to sin;2 who set out to go down to Egypt, without asking for my direction, to take refuge in the protection of Pharaoh and to seek shelter in the shadow of Egypt!3 Therefore shall the protection of Pharaoh turn to your shame, and the shelter in the shadow of Egypt to your humiliation.4 For though his officials are at Zoan and his envoys reach Hanes,5 everyone comes to shame through a people that cannot profit them, that brings neither help nor profit, but shame and disgrace.” 6 An oracle on the beasts of the Negeb. Through a land of trouble and anguish, from where come the lioness and the lion, the adder and the flying fiery serpent, they carry their riches on the backs of donkeys, and their treasures on the humps of camels, to a people that cannot profit them.7 Egypt's help is worthless and empty; therefore I have called her “Rahab who sits still.” A Rebellious People 8 And now, go, write it before them on a tablet and inscribe it in a book, that it may be for the time to come as a witness forever.69 For they are a rebellious people, lying children, children unwilling to hear the instruction of the LORD;10 who say to the seers, “Do not see,” and to the prophets, “Do not prophesy to us what is right; speak to us smooth things, prophesy illusions,11 leave the way, turn aside from the path, let us hear no more about the Holy One of Israel.”12 Therefore thus says the Holy One of Israel, “Because you despise this word and trust in oppression and perverseness and rely on them,13 therefore this iniquity shall be to you like a breach in a high wall, bulging out and about to collapse, whose breaking comes suddenly, in an instant;14 and its breaking is like that of a potter's vessel that is smashed so ruthlessly that among its fragments not a shard is found with which to take fire from the hearth, or to dip up water out of the cistern.” 15 For thus said the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel, “In returning7 and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.” But you were unwilling, 16 and you said, “No! We will flee upon horses”; therefore you shall flee away; and, “We will ride upon swift steeds”; therefore your pursuers shall be swift.17 A thousand shall flee at the threat of one; at the threat of five you shall flee, till you are left like a flagstaff on the top of a mountain, like a signal on a hill. The Lord Will Be Gracious 18 Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him. 19 For a people shall dwell in Zion, in Jerusalem; you shall weep no more. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry. As soon as he hears it, he answers you. 20 And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your Teacher will not hide himself anymore, but your eyes shall see your Teacher. 21 And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. 22 Then you will defile your carved idols overlaid with silver and your gold-plated metal images. You will scatter them as unclean things. You will say to them, “Be gone!” 23 And he will give rain for the seed with which you sow the ground, and bread, the produce of the ground, which will be rich and plenteous. In that day your livestock will graze in large pastures, 24 and the oxen and the donkeys that work the ground will eat seasoned fodder, which has been winnowed with shovel and fork. 25 And on every lofty mountain and every high hill there will be brooks running with water, in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. 26 Moreover, the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day when the LORD binds up the brokenness of his people, and heals the wounds inflicted by his blow. 27 Behold, the name of the LORD comes from afar, burning with his anger, and in thick rising smoke;8 his lips are full of fury, and his tongue is like a devouring fire;28 his breath is like an overflowing stream that reaches up to the neck; to sift the nations with the sieve of destruction, and to place on the jaws of the peoples a bridle that leads astray. 29 You shall have a song as in the night when a holy feast is kept, and gladness of heart, as when one sets out to the sound of the flute to go to the mountain of the LORD, to the Rock of Israel. 30 And the LORD will cause his majestic voice to be heard and the descending blow of his arm to be seen, in furious anger and a flame of devouring fire, with a cloudburst and storm and hailstones. 31 The Assyrians will be terror-stricken at the voice of the LORD, when he strikes with his rod. 32 And every stroke of the appointed staff that the LORD lays on them will be to the sound of tambourines and lyres. Battling with brandished arm, he will fight with them. 33 For a burning place9 has long been prepared; indeed, for the king it is made ready, its pyre made deep and wide, with fire and wood in abundance; the breath of the LORD, like a stream of sulfur, kindles it.

How long? Have pity on your servants!14 Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, and for as many years as we have seen evil.16 Let your work be shown to your servants, and your glorious power to their children.17 Let the favor4 of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!

Paul and Barnabas at Lystra 8 Now at Lystra there was a man sitting who could not use his feet. He was crippled from birth and had never walked. 9 He listened to Paul speaking.

Colleen Conti 11 When the crowd saw what Paul had done, they shouted in the Lycaonian language, “The gods have come down to us in human form!” 12 Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul they called Hermes because he was the chief speaker. 13 The priest of Zeus, whose temple was just outside the city, brought bulls and wreaths to the city gates because he and the crowd wanted to offer sacrifices to them.14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of this, they tore their clothes and rushed out into the crowd, shouting: 15 “Friends, why are you doing this? We too are only human, like you. We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made the heavens and the earth and the sea and everything in them.

Today We Embrace The Fashion Statement That's Fit For A Queen. Welcome to September 27th, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate the little things that comfort the body and soul. More after the break from Anna Devere. Scarves are a wonderful way to brighten up the gloom of fall and winter as they cozy up to our necks and keep us warm. The first scarves depicted in fashion are found in ancient Egypt, where Queen Nefertiti wore a tightly woven scarf beneath her conical headdress. Military ranks were often marked with scarves of varying value from expensive silk to lowly cotton. But our love for scarves as a fashion statement can be traced to the house of Hermes in the 19th century. Making use of the beautiful patterned fabrics from China and India, Hermes designed the first ready-to-wear graphic silk scarf in 1837. When it caught the eye of Queen Victoria and became a part of her iconic look, scarves were quickly embraced in Europe and America as the essence of chic. On National Scarf Day, enjoy the big impact of a small strip of fabric. While hot chocolate has been around in one form or another for thousands of years, it's believed that chocolate milk came from 17th century Jamaica. Sir Hans Sloane, an Irish botanist was given a post here, to serve an English Duke. While mixing with the locals, he discovered a drink made of cocoa and water that he described as nauseating. By substituting milk for the water he created a much smoother concoction that he later brought to apothecaries in Europe, where it was used as a medicine. And while chocolate milk may not be considered a health food, on National Chocolate Milk Day we remind you that some foods feed your body, while others feed your soul. I'm Anna Devere and I'm Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.

• We have to really re-learn to find it. First of all, who we truly really are, it's not what they've given you and told you who you are, it's who you discover that you are, and it's important for us to do the research, for us to each take our own individual trip, their own journey to inner space, and that's going to come through a research investigation study. Everybody's got special gifts and talents and even passions in this journey that others don't have. (2:00)• I had an epiphany at age 7, I said, Wow, there's nobody coming to save me, I'm going to have to save myself, that was my exact thought. I realized from that moment forward that anything that I wanted to do, anything I need to achieve, it was going to take action and energy on my part. I was going to be the one to put the energy exchange into the system to get the result that I wanted, and if I didn't do that, I would be stuck in the system or the place where I was. I couldn't afford to complain about it because I left myself there. (7:42)• The Bible was supposedly written by different people in different books, but I really wanted to find out, was this written in real time or was just put together much later? I found it much later, that it was written between 180 to 900 AD, and it was written by the phoenicians, followers of Hermes. They were just collecting wherever tidbits of scriptures and in the scrolls and papyrus that they came across that were collectively putting this stuff together into this book. Much later, the Council of Nicea came across it and they orchestrated it into this, what they call a canonized Bible, where they took things out and move things and changed words and phrases around by accident and on-purpose, and mis-translated some words, that were very important by the way, and kind of cultivated it into their own control system book. (9:25)• I've been through ups and downs, highs and lows, I had a lot of money and lost at all too, I've done everything. So all those things are there for us to become better teachers, so we can actually relate to everybody on every single level. There's not one person out there, I could talk to the highest level of quatum physics, and the way I can talk to Mishio Kaku, have a conversation with him for hours, and I can go talk to somebody that's living in a low class income neighborhood on Section 8, and I can sit there and have a great conversation with them for many, many hours. I can talk to a homeless person, I can talk to a middle class person, a wealthy person, it doesn't matter who it is, on every level, I can contribute and I can be on their level, sincerely, not fake, but sincerely, because I've experienced everything from depression to highs and lows, being married, being divorced, having kids, I've done it all. (14:50)• I don't chase money, I chase my passions, and because I chase my passions, abundance is the side effect. I want people to understand that spirituality and manifesting your financial abundance goes hand in hand, and that anyone can do it. Whatever abundances is for you, There's a different levels of abundance for everyone, Everybody's got a different meaning of abundance in their brain, some people it's having billions of dollars, but those people do a lot in the world, and for some people, just having all their bills pay without having to stress and worry. It's about relieving our stress and finances. For me, it's not about chasing money, it's about buying my freedom, (19:51)ABOUT BILLY:Billy Carson is the founder and CEO of 4BiddenKnowledge Inc, and the Best Selling Author of The Compendium Of The Emerald Tablets and Woke Doesn't Mean Broke.Mr. Carson is also the founder and CEO of 4BiddenKnowledge TV, a new conscious streaming TV network, and is an expert host on Deep Space, a new original streaming series by Gaia.

With family: 1 Samuel 18; Romans 16 1 Samuel 18 (Listen) David and Jonathan's Friendship 18 As soon as he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. 2 And Saul took him that day and would not let him return to his father's house. 3 Then Jonathan made a covenant with David, because he loved him as his own soul. 4 And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was on him and gave it to David, and his armor, and even his sword and his bow and his belt. 5 And David went out and was successful wherever Saul sent him, so that Saul set him over the men of war. And this was good in the sight of all the people and also in the sight of Saul's servants. Saul's Jealousy of David 6 As they were coming home, when David returned from striking down the Philistine, the women came out of all the cities of Israel, singing and dancing, to meet King Saul, with tambourines, with songs of joy, and with musical instruments.1 7 And the women sang to one another as they celebrated, “Saul has struck down his thousands, and David his ten thousands.” 8 And Saul was very angry, and this saying displeased him. He said, “They have ascribed to David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed thousands, and what more can he have but the kingdom?” 9 And Saul eyed David from that day on. 10 The next day a harmful spirit from God rushed upon Saul, and he raved within his house while David was playing the lyre, as he did day by day. Saul had his spear in his hand. 11 And Saul hurled the spear, for he thought, “I will pin David to the wall.” But David evaded him twice. 12 Saul was afraid of David because the LORD was with him but had departed from Saul. 13 So Saul removed him from his presence and made him a commander of a thousand. And he went out and came in before the people. 14 And David had success in all his undertakings, for the LORD was with him. 15 And when Saul saw that he had great success, he stood in fearful awe of him. 16 But all Israel and Judah loved David, for he went out and came in before them. David Marries Michal 17 Then Saul said to David, “Here is my elder daughter Merab. I will give her to you for a wife. Only be valiant for me and fight the LORD's battles.” For Saul thought, “Let not my hand be against him, but let the hand of the Philistines be against him.” 18 And David said to Saul, “Who am I, and who are my relatives, my father's clan in Israel, that I should be son-in-law to the king?” 19 But at the time when Merab, Saul's daughter, should have been given to David, she was given to Adriel the Meholathite for a wife. 20 Now Saul's daughter Michal loved David. And they told Saul, and the thing pleased him. 21 Saul thought, “Let me give her to him, that she may be a snare for him and that the hand of the Philistines may be against him.” Therefore Saul said to David a second time,2 “You shall now be my son-in-law.” 22 And Saul commanded his servants, “Speak to David in private and say, ‘Behold, the king has delight in you, and all his servants love you. Now then become the king's son-in-law.'” 23 And Saul's servants spoke those words in the ears of David. And David said, “Does it seem to you a little thing to become the king's son-in-law, since I am a poor man and have no reputation?” 24 And the servants of Saul told him, “Thus and so did David speak.” 25 Then Saul said, “Thus shall you say to David, ‘The king desires no bride-price except a hundred foreskins of the Philistines, that he may be avenged of the king's enemies.'” Now Saul thought to make David fall by the hand of the Philistines. 26 And when his servants told David these words, it pleased David well to be the king's son-in-law. Before the time had expired, 27 David arose and went, along with his men, and killed two hundred of the Philistines. And David brought their foreskins, which were given in full number to the king, that he might become the king's son-in-law. And Saul gave him his daughter Michal for a wife. 28 But when Saul saw and knew that the LORD was with David, and that Michal, Saul's daughter, loved him, 29 Saul was even more afraid of David. So Saul was David's enemy continually. 30 Then the commanders of the Philistines came out to battle, and as often as they came out David had more success than all the servants of Saul, so that his name was highly esteemed. Footnotes  18:6 Or triangles, or three-stringed instruments  18:21 Hebrew by two (ESV) Romans 16 (Listen) Personal Greetings 16 I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a servant1 of the church at Cenchreae, 2 that you may welcome her in the Lord in a way worthy of the saints, and help her in whatever she may need from you, for she has been a patron of many and of myself as well. 3 Greet Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus, 4 who risked their necks for my life, to whom not only I give thanks but all the churches of the Gentiles give thanks as well. 5 Greet also the church in their house. Greet my beloved Epaenetus, who was the first convert2 to Christ in Asia. 6 Greet Mary, who has worked hard for you. 7 Greet Andronicus and Junia,3 my kinsmen and my fellow prisoners. They are well known to the apostles,4 and they were in Christ before me. 8 Greet Ampliatus, my beloved in the Lord. 9 Greet Urbanus, our fellow worker in Christ, and my beloved Stachys. 10 Greet Apelles, who is approved in Christ. Greet those who belong to the family of Aristobulus. 11 Greet my kinsman Herodion. Greet those in the Lord who belong to the family of Narcissus. 12 Greet those workers in the Lord, Tryphaena and Tryphosa. Greet the beloved Persis, who has worked hard in the Lord. 13 Greet Rufus, chosen in the Lord; also his mother, who has been a mother to me as well. 14 Greet Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas, and the brothers5 who are with them. 15 Greet Philologus, Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints who are with them. 16 Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you. Final Instructions and Greetings 17 I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. 18 For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites,6 and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive. 19 For your obedience is known to all, so that I rejoice over you, but I want you to be wise as to what is good and innocent as to what is evil. 20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 21 Timothy, my fellow worker, greets you; so do Lucius and Jason and Sosipater, my kinsmen. 22 I Tertius, who wrote this letter, greet you in the Lord. 23 Gaius, who is host to me and to the whole church, greets you. Erastus, the city treasurer, and our brother Quartus, greet you.7 Doxology 25 Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages 26 but has now been disclosed and through the prophetic writings has been made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith—27 to the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ!

Amen (ESV) In private: Psalm 34; Lamentations 3 Psalm 34 (Listen) Taste and See That the Lord Is Good 1 Of David, when he changed his behavior before Abimelech, so that he drove him out, and he went away. 34 I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.2 My soul makes its boast in the LORD; let the humble hear and be glad.3 Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together! 4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.5 Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him and saved him out of all his troubles.7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them. 8 Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!9 Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him have no lack!10 The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing. 11 Come, O children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.12 What man is there who desires life and loves many days, that he may see good?13 Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit.14 Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. 15 The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous and his ears toward their cry.16 The face of the LORD is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth.17 When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.18 The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. 19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all.20 He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.21 Affliction will slay the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.22 The LORD redeems the life of his servants; none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned. Footnotes  34:1 This psalm is an acrostic poem, each verse beginning with the successive letters of the Hebrew alphabet (ESV) Lamentations 3 (Listen) Great Is Your Faithfulness 3 I am the man who has seen affliction under the rod of his wrath;2 he has driven and brought me into darkness without any light;3 surely against me he turns his hand again and again the whole day long. 4 He has made my flesh and my skin waste away; he has broken my bones;5 he has besieged and enveloped me with bitterness and tribulation;6 he has made me dwell in darkness like the dead of long ago. 7 He has walled me about so that I cannot escape; he has made my chains heavy;8 though I call and cry for help, he shuts out my prayer;9 he has blocked my ways with blocks of stones; he has made my paths crooked. 10 He is a bear lying in wait for me, a lion in hiding;11 he turned aside my steps and tore me to pieces; he has made me desolate;12 he bent his bow and set me as a target for his arrow. 13 He drove into my kidneys the arrows of his quiver;14 I have become the laughingstock of all peoples, the object of their taunts all day long.15 He has filled me with bitterness; he has sated me with wormwood. 16 He has made my teeth grind on gravel, and made me cower in ashes;17 my soul is bereft of peace; I have forgotten what happiness1 is;18 so I say, “My endurance has perished; so has my hope from the LORD.” 19 Remember my affliction and my wanderings, the wormwood and the gall!20 My soul continually remembers it and is bowed down within me.21 But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: 22 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;2 his mercies never come to an end;23 they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.24 “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” 25 The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.26 It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.27 It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth. 28 Let him sit alone in silence when it is laid on him;29 let him put his mouth in the dust— there may yet be hope;30 let him give his cheek to the one who strikes, and let him be filled with insults. 31 For the Lord will not cast off forever,32 but, though he cause grief, he will have compassion according to the abundance of his steadfast love;33 for he does not afflict from his heart or grieve the children of men. 34 To crush underfoot all the prisoners of the earth,35 to deny a man justice in the presence of the Most High,36 to subvert a man in his lawsuit, the Lord does not approve. 37 Who has spoken and it came to pass, unless the Lord has commanded it?38 Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that good and bad come?39 Why should a living man complain, a man, about the punishment of his sins? 40 Let us test and examine our ways, and return to the LORD!41 Let us lift up our hearts and hands to God in heaven:42 “We have transgressed and rebelled, and you have not forgiven. 43 “You have wrapped yourself with anger and pursued us, killing without pity;44 you have wrapped yourself with a cloud so that no prayer can pass through.45 You have made us scum and garbage among the peoples. 46 “All our enemies open their mouths against us;47 panic and pitfall have come upon us, devastation and destruction;48 my eyes flow with rivers of tears because of the destruction of the daughter of my people. 49 “My eyes will flow without ceasing, without respite,50 until the LORD from heaven looks down and sees;51 my eyes cause me grief at the fate of all the daughters of my city. 52 “I have been hunted like a bird by those who were my enemies without cause;53 they flung me alive into the pit and cast stones on me;54 water closed over my head; I said, ‘I am lost.' 55 “I called on your name, O LORD, from the depths of the pit;56 you heard my plea, ‘Do not close your ear to my cry for help!'57 You came near when I called on you; you said, ‘Do not fear!' 58 “You have taken up my cause, O Lord; you have redeemed my life.59 You have seen the wrong done to me, O LORD;

Morning: Psalms 109–111 Psalms 109–111 (Listen) Help Me, O Lord My God To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. 109 Be not silent, O God of my praise!2 For wicked and deceitful mouths are opened against me, speaking against me with lying tongues.3 They encircle me with words of hate, and attack me without cause.4 In return for my love they accuse me, but I give myself to prayer.15 So they reward me evil for good, and hatred for my love. 6 Appoint a wicked man against him; let an accuser stand at his right hand.7 When he is tried, let him come forth guilty; let his prayer be counted as sin!8 May his days be few; may another take his office!9 May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow!10 May his children wander about and beg, seeking food far from the ruins they inhabit!11 May the creditor seize all that he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his toil!12 Let there be none to extend kindness to him, nor any to pity his fatherless children!13 May his posterity be cut off; may his name be blotted out in the second generation!14 May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD, and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out!15 Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth! 16 For he did not remember to show kindness, but pursued the poor and needy and the brokenhearted, to put them to death.17 He loved to curse; let curses come2 upon him! He did not delight in blessing; may it be far3 from him!18 He clothed himself with cursing as his coat; may it soak4 into his body like water, like oil into his bones!19 May it be like a garment that he wraps around him, like a belt that he puts on every day!20 May this be the reward of my accusers from the LORD, of those who speak evil against my life! 21 But you, O GOD my Lord, deal on my behalf for your name's sake; because your steadfast love is good, deliver me!22 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is stricken within me.23 I am gone like a shadow at evening; I am shaken off like a locust.24 My knees are weak through fasting; my body has become gaunt, with no fat.25 I am an object of scorn to my accusers; when they see me, they wag their heads. 26 Help me, O LORD my God! Save me according to your steadfast love!27 Let them know that this is your hand; you, O LORD, have done it!28 Let them curse, but you will bless! They arise and are put to shame, but your servant will be glad!29 May my accusers be clothed with dishonor; may they be wrapped in their own shame as in a cloak! 30 With my mouth I will give great thanks to the LORD; I will praise him in the midst of the throng.31 For he stands at the right hand of the needy one, to save him from those who condemn his soul to death. Sit at My Right Hand A Psalm of David. 110 The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” 2 The LORD sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies!3 Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power,5 in holy garments;6 from the womb of the morning, the dew of your youth will be yours.74 The LORD has sworn and will not change his mind, “You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” 5 The Lord is at your right hand; he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.6 He will execute judgment among the nations, filling them with corpses; he will shatter chiefs8 over the wide earth.7 He will drink from the brook by the way; therefore he will lift up his head. Great Are the Lord's Works 111 9 Praise the LORD! I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation.2 Great are the works of the LORD, studied by all who delight in them.3 Full of splendor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever.4 He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered; the LORD is gracious and merciful.5 He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever.6 He has shown his people the power of his works, in giving them the inheritance of the nations.7 The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy;8 they are established forever and ever, to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.9 He sent redemption to his people; he has commanded his covenant forever. Holy and awesome is his name!10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever!

Habia un vez en la antigua grecia un hombre llamado Sisifo. Sisifo era hijo del rey Eolo y en aquellos tiempos era considerado el más astuto de los mortales. Sisifo desde muy temprana edad había demostrado que el era sagaz como pocos y cuentan que un dia sisifo se dio cuenta que alguien le había robado sus rebaños de ovejas. Enfurecido sisifo fu a buscarlas y las vio pastando en las tierras de Autolico que era hijo de Hermes, quien le había enseñado como robar. Sisifo fue directamente a la casa de Autolico y le reclamo por las ovejas, pero este como buen ladron negó que esas ovejas fueran de Sisifo. El astuto Sisifo que todo lo preveía tomo a Autolico y lo llevo al rebaño de ovejas y levantando sus pezuñas le mostro como todas ellas tenían marcado su nombre en cada pesuña. Asombrado por la astucia del muchacho, Autolico le ofrecio a Sisifo su hija Anticlea, con la esperanza de tener un nieto tan astuto como Sisifo. Este nieto fue nada y nada menos que el conocido e ingenios Ulises. Heroe de la guerra de troya. Con el tiempo Sisifo conocio y se caso con merope y cuenta la leyenda que un dia Sisifo pudo presenciar como Zeus raptaba a una doncella llamada Egina, hija de Asopo, el dios del rio. Este desesperado salio a buscarla y en el camino se encontró con Sisifo, quien le revelo que Zeus había sido quien la había raptado a cambio de que el dios rio hiciera surgir una fuente de agua en corinto. El Dios accedió y Zeus fue denunciado por haber raptado a la doncella Egina. Zeus furioso juró castigar a aquel mortal que le había denunciado y contacto al Tanatos , el genio de la muerte para que lo matase. Sisifo, astuto como era, reconocio la figura de tanatos y lo apreso antes de que este lo matara y lo amarro a unas gruesas cadenas. Resultado de esto es que Tanatos, la muerte no podía recorrer el mundo y por ello la gente dejo de morir. La falta de muertos causo temor en el mundo griego y Zeus entendío que aquel mortal algo tenia que ver con la desaparición de la muerte. Zeus finalmente convencio a Sisifo de que liberara a la muerte, pero esta rencorosa como era inmediatamente mato a Sisifo. Sisifo, astuto como era, había previsto este desenlace y de antemano le había dado instrucciones a su espos Merope que no le tributase los honores fúnebres que mandaba la constumbre griega. Asi cuando Sisifo llego al mundo de los muertos, el Dios Hades, le pregunto porque no le habían hecho los honores requerido y el astuto Sisifo le contesto que su mujer era una impia que no seguía los ritos religiosos. El Dios Hades se enfurecio y le ordeno a Sisifo regresar al mundo para que castigara a su Mujer. Este regreso al lado de Merope y allí se quedo viviendo hasta avanzada edad. Cuando Tanatos fue de regreso por el muchos años después, lo llevo directamente a Hades, quien sintiéndose engañado por el Astuto sisifo lo condeno a sufrir un peso que nunca jama le permitiera volver a salir del Infierno. Lo condeno a tomar todos los días una enorme roca y subirla en sus hombros hasta lo alto de una montaña y allí depositarla, pero como la pendiente de la cima era muy pronunciada sisifo debía dejar la roca en el suelo para tratar de empujarla con su cuerpo y asi la roca por su propio peso volveria a rodar hasta la base de la montaña y Sisifo debería intentarlo de nuevo al siguiente dia, con igual resultado y el siguiente y el siguiente hasta la eternidad. Y cuenta la leyenda que hasta el dia de hoy, en el infierno del mundo griego, se ve la figura de hombre arrastrando cada dia una roca de la base de la montaña hasta casi la cima infructosamente bajo la condena de tratar de nuevo el siguiente dia. Es el astuto Sisifo sufriendo su condena.
Bader Elkhatib is a Vice President at CentreCourt. Prior to joining CentreCourt, Bader worked as an Investment Associate for Tricon Capital Group, a Real Estate Private Equity firm, and prior to that he worked as an Analyst in Investment Banking at CIBC Capital Markets. In this episode we talked about: Bader`s background Bader`s first Real Estate deal The Transition from Tricorn Capital Group to CentreCourt Bader's Investment Philosophy Land Assembly Real Estate Development Replacement of Rental Housing 2021-2022 Real Estate Prospectives and Opportunities Mentorship, Resources and Lessons Learned Transcriptions: Jesse (0s): Welcome to the working capital real estate podcast. My name is Jesper galley. And on this show, we discuss all things real estate with investors and experts in a variety of industries that impact real estate. Whether you're looking at your first investment or raising your first fund, join me and let's build that portfolio one square foot at a time. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to working capital my name's Jesse for galleon today, I have better Elica deed. He is vice president at center court. Prior to joining center court batter worked as an investment associate for Tricon capital group, a real estate, private equity firm. And prior to that, he worked as an analyst and investment banking at CIVC capital markets. And today we're talking all things, acquisition, all things development better. How's it going? Bader (47s): No complaints. It's a 38 degrees outside and then my basement is good. Jesse (52s): Yeah, I was going to say, I just, I totally forgot today. We have Italy versus Spain. Hopefully by the time I'm listening to this, we have one and have advanced to the finals, but yeah, it's, it is quite hot in, in Toronto. Right now. It is close to 40 or feels like 40. Bader (1m 9s): Well, I'm sorry to keep you on the, on the line in that. How have you known him? He was playing Spain. I think we would have moved the call. Jesse (1m 15s): No sweat. I'm one eye is looking to the, to the screen here, but no, thank you so much for coming on. Really appreciate you taking the time. I thought listeners would get a lot out of somebody from your background in real estate. And talk a little bit about development, how, you know, center court, underwrites assets, and just kind of your general path in, in the real estate industry. So on that note, maybe where we could start is a little bit about your background. I mentioned Tricon CIVC for listeners. Give a little bit of a background and how you got into this, this world of real estate. Bader (1m 54s): Yeah, so it's, I mean, pretty interesting story. I guess I, my graduated, I thought I was going to be in the tech space. I thought that was going to be, you know, where I'd find my path. And to that end, I, I kicked off my career in tech investment banking. So I was covering, you know, Roger's tell us a bunch of data centers, a lot of small tech companies back when it wasn't really sexy in two thousand ten thousand eleven. And it was, it was a great time. I did a ton of really interesting work, but the one deal that kind of really got me excited was the data center deal. And I, I kind of saw that as an intersection between kind of real estate and technology, it was tangible, it made, it made real money at the time. So you could follow the cash flow that really kinda stuck out to me as a potential angle. But the more I kind of dug into what I was really interested in, it was really on the resi side. So I said to myself, well, look, people are making careers out of real estate. You can work in real estate finance. There's so many different ways to look at it. And, and through, through that, got introduced to tri Kahn. Who's a real estate, private equity firm focused exclusively on residential real estate at the time, primarily in the U S. And I said, well, I would love to learn what the more with the us. I felt like I was just in Toronto at the time, and I kinda wanted to expand my horizons. It was residential, it was Toronto based a really young entrepreneurial team, a good track record. And I found a home there and I w I was there for, you know, just over four years, did a lot of really exciting work. But one of the pieces that I wasn't getting was the development piece. Like, you know, we would invest in development projects and we would, you know, see a lot of the work, but as a Canadian based investor with porches in the U S it's very difficult to have that boots on the ground experience. So I decided I need to kind of learn the trade if you will. And I started embarking on a journey to find the, the right development group here locally to really take me in and take a bet on me. Cause I had different development experience and I found a home at center court. So I've been within our court now for four years. And today I lead our land acquisition program. So, you know, really looking at every deal that comes through the door and seeing fits without and within our box. And that's how I spent the vast majority of time. Jesse (4m 14s): Right on. And before we kind of moved to center court, I'm curious the, the type of deals you mentioned, residential, but the type of deals you're doing at Tricon, maybe you could talk a little bit about that, where they kind of vanilla where they, you know, a little bit more complex. How, how did that, how did that go Bader (4m 32s): Very complex? You know, I remember the very first deal I did. I, I, my, my biggest tri con was a land development deal. So people think high is complicated, but this was like a, you know, a few hundred acre site in North Carolina. Yeah. So a brand new market, a time for, Tricon definitely a brand new market for me, you're talking about buying like a wood. What is law area putting in, you know, road sanitary, sewer, water, building like a highway off ramp and then selling, you know, blue top loss, the builders, or going vertical yourself. So, you know, just the sheer size scope, like it's like a 10, 15 year deal, the market risk associated with that. Like, it was just a very complicated process. That was a lot of the work that I did there. The other bucket of work was, you know, probably a bit easier to wrap your head around. It was manufactured housing, it's the land lease communities. So we, we had a portfolio of manufactured housing communities primarily in Arizona, in California. So that was a bit easier to kind of, again, execute on wrap your head around cash, flowing assets, you know, easy value, add programs that are executable while we're on the risk curve. For sure. And so that's how I spent most of my time. Certainly not plain vanilla. I wish I saw a couple of plain vanilla deals when I was there, but just tremendous learning opportunity on very complicated things. Jesse (6m 5s): Yeah. That's, we've had people on the show for a manufactured housing and it's definitely has its intricacies, you know, when it comes to whether it's it's owned, whether it's land lease. So it sounds like it was predominantly Landlease that you were dealing with there. Bader (6m 20s): Yeah. So I try Collin. One of the things that we did, and this was super exciting, you know, we ended up really basically taking $50 million of balance sheet capital in the first instance and, and using that to feed a manufactured housing portfolio, we, we found the right GP partner based out of Chicago to kind of lead those efforts on the ground. And what we were doing was we were buying, you know, call it one-off assets in the, you know, three to three and a half star category, good bones, or just really needed some, some significant TLC. And we would effectively go in and do the value add program, rebase that try to effectively bring it from like an 85, you know, 88% occupancy up to that 95, 97, 90 8%, and really repositioned the entire park. That was the whole business plan. But if you can imagine, like effectively involves us flying down to, you know, Arizona jumping in like an SUV and you're cruising down, you know, like various parts, like I'm not talking Scottsdale fucking like Glendale and, and other areas. And once we're parks, friended meet owners, like it's that traditional door knocking and trying to find opportunities. And if that's the way we built a portfolio of 14 assets where we own all the land, the tenants actually own the channel is what we call it, which is the house. They lease the land from you, it's all triple mess. And basically what you're trying to do is optimize right by building a portfolio, you know, spread the management costs, do the value, add program five and cap rate compression, grow the NOI, and then sell it off to another institutional, you know, owner who may not want to do that heavy lifting. And, and we did that. We actually ended up selling it to Blackstone. Jesse (7m 58s): Yeah, very cool. So pretty much a turnkey getting it to the point of turnkey and models, basically model, suite it for them and hand it over. And you said it was sold to Blackstone. Yes. Right on. And they, they had a fairly large play into single family. You know, everybody was trying to figure out how do you scale single family? And I think it was something like 38,000 or 40,000 units at the time. And I think they, I think they IPO the company or the company that they created. I totally forget the name. But do you recall? Bader (8m 28s): I think the American, I think as American homes for rent, if I remember correctly, I think that was it there's. Yeah. Let's the single family rental, like Tricom was super active in that when I joined, it was like a big bet that was may coming out of the, the 2010 recession. And that business has continued to grow. I remember at the time there's a bunch of people who just couldn't figure it out. They couldn't understand how you could manage so properties, but you know, here we are 10 years later and it's a, I'll call it an institutional asset class with, you know, real, you know, pension players looking to grow the portfolio. And, you know, we recently heard about a company here in Canada, who's going to try and do something similar. So it's super exciting. I like the whole time I tried it on was very innovative. I didn't work on single family rental, but just being around the folks who were working on it, you know, you just, don't, you, you start to appreciate the thesis and yeah. There's risks to it, but yeah, there's always risks. Jesse (9m 32s): Yeah. Very cool. I think the one I was talking to the invitation homes, which I believe I, yeah, I believe IPO. Okay. Very cool. So you go from, from Tricon down to, or over to a center court, what's that transition like and what do you start working on once you, once you make that transition? Bader (9m 50s): Yes. You know what? It was a, I think it's a big bet on my part, right. At the time, like I had a, I had a great thing going on for me, a Tricon, but I was really inspired by the founders of center court. You know, like working with guys like Andrew Hoffman, Jemez, Veronica, Steven, Bellevue, like everybody just has tremendous respect for them. I had tremendous respect to them and, you know, Centrepoint was still maybe five or six years old at a time and just had a great track record despite, you know, a relatively short tenure. So I knew they were on the right track. And candidly, when I first met with Hermes to, you know, just pick his brain, we, we had a mutual connection and I said to him, Hey, this is what I'm looking for. I'm looking for developer that has these types of characteristics and you know, where do you think I should go? Like, who do you think I should talk to you, but you can't just stay away from, you know, like just kinda give me some guidance because all my work was in the U S and you know, after a few meetings, he just said, I, you know, I, I meet Andrew. And at the time Ford was not hiring, you know, they had, they had a solid team, they were growing, but they weren't really looking for someone, but he said, Hey, like, you're a great talent. You have the right outlook on, on the world. And it aligns well with the way we see things. So if you're, if you're willing to make a bet on us effectively, when we can bet on you, so we're going to join, you won't really have a, you know, fully based roles. So I kind of did a bunch of everything when I first joined. And then, you know, as the business grew, I grew, but the very first thing I did was a sales and marketing on our venting west project, which is a building over in Liberty village. So I took a deep dive into, you know, designing suites and coming up with the name and figuring out how to market it to brokers and, you know, our investor buyers. And that was the very first thing I did. And from there things quickly evolved and started doing more acquisition work, which is kind of more of my comfort zone. And we ended up raising a, a, a large $250 million dedicated fund. So we have permanent capital and more of a call it a, a direct mandate to put that capital in play. And, and, and through that, and some heavy lifting, I eventually transitioned over to acquisitions. Jesse (12m 14s): Very cool. So the, the fund itself, it was that, was that something that they, they created as a committed capital fund? Was it something that they created in a private REIT structure? What were the mechanics of that? Bader (12m 27s): Yeah, it was, it was committed capital fund. So prior to that, you know, we were raising capital from ultra high net worth families on an as needed basis. When we had an opportunity that we felt was worthwhile, we'd bring it to our investors. And we had a very small group of very loyal investors. And, you know, what we saw in the marketplace was w w was really two or three different dynamics. One was, you'll just getting done a whole lot faster than ever before. Right. So that multitasking of doing your diligence, raising your capital, I mean, we were doing it, but it put a lot of pressure on the team. We also had a great track record. So we thought, how can we leverage that track record into something more? So I think really, I know we just saw a lot of opportunity in the marketplace. So it was really those three things that sets ourselves. Let's just raise a committed fund where we know we have the money in the bank. We know we have this mandate and we know there's opportunities out there. It's just gonna help us execute better, you know, enhance the machine if you will. And it, it certainly did. So right now, you know, it's been three years, we're about halfway through that fun. And, you know, we're, I'm super happy to report that things have worked out, you know, kind of exactly as, as we anticipated. I'm not exactly, but, you know, in the larger scheme of things, pretty, pretty close. Jesse (13m 48s): So with that mandate, what type of, what type of latitude or what type of range of investments were part of the investment philosophy when, you know, you have investors initially coming in and saying, you know, these are the returns we're looking for. These are the asset classes that we're looking at. What did that look like? Bader (14m 6s): Yeah, no, it's a good question. So, you know, for us, we try to be very, I think we try to have a narrow focus. So we're only doing high rise, residential condo for sale, right? So we don't have a mandate to do, you know, commercial or retail or industrial it's, it's, it's, it's one asset class in terms of market. You know, we, our bread and butter is the downtown core, but we had the latitude to go out to the greater Toronto area. So for, you know, for us, that's really the outer 4, 1 6 and 9 0 5. That's what I would consider it to be kind of our, our playground right now. And in terms of, I guess, you know, scale and deal structure, really for us, it's 280,000 square feet or more of GSA. So we're looking for, you know, higher density stuff. It doesn't need to be a vertical tower. It can be, you know, a mid rise, but certainly high density. And last but not least, we have a lot of latitude in terms of what we can buy. So I can go out and buy a, you know, a Plaza. If I think that's positive can be converted into a high rise development. We could buy a whole piece of a, of an assembly site, right. And assembled over time, the rest of the remaining properties, we can buy a fully zone site and just, you know, put a right to range of production. So, you know, we look at a lot of different opportunities in, in varying stages of, of the on-call there development life cycle, Jesse (15m 30s): Right on. So, so that's kind of where I was going with that, where you would, you know, potentially you're buying something that is a different asset class today with the intention to take it to high rise, residential condo sale. Maybe you could talk a little bit. We, we, you know, on the, on the show, we've had people on that have been condo centric or had that similar type of mandate with their investors, but not so much a discussion of land assembly and how investors look at land assembly, because I can tell you from the point of view of the brokerage side, even on the investor side, you know, land assembly, it's definitely an art. And for someone like myself, that doesn't see a lot of it aside from having investors in brokerage, say, I want this, I want this. It almost looks pretty random until you see something actually come together. So how do you approach that? Maybe, maybe you could dive into that a little bit. Bader (16m 25s): Yeah, look, it, it's not easy. It can definitely look random. I think what I always tell people who are trying to pursue land assemblies. Like if you think of like the, the area, like call it, like the spectrum of risk w land assemblies highest, highest risk, right? Like you're, you're taking a bet on a piece of dirt that you need to buy your neighbors out at a basis. That's going to make sense. So you gotta think things through rezoning, like if it's the longest life cycle and most complicated piece of the, of the puzzle, but there's a approach. I always say, I talked to a lot of young call it young brokers or, or, you know, peers. It's like, you know, like, what's the best way of doing this. And, you know, we often trade notes and then I'm one thing I can say is know where to look. Right. And it sounds easy when I say that to you, but the reality is do your homework, right? Like don't just start looking at, you know, four corners of being, well, there's a tower over there. That's the site next to, it must be a tower site, but it's far more complicated than that. I, I often find people just make that assumption. You really have to understand. So if you're working in Toronto, the city Toronto official plan, the secondary plan, the site specific policies, the tall building guidelines, or mid-rise building guidelines, you know, you're really have to be plugged in to what, you know, the, the planning policy says is achievable. I think that is step one is to have that deep kind of Intel. And then step two is to kind of like, you know, you're kind of layering these things on top of each other to figure out, okay, I'm going to put them through this filter. Where can I, like, what areas am I allowed to develop in? And then you'd have to go through it and say, well, okay, this area is clearly development sites, but I have to buy 16 peaks, like jumped people out. Is that something I'm going to spend my time and energy doing? It might be if you have the patients and the capital and the very long-term orientation, but realistically, I think most people will shy away from that. So then you're trying to find the sites that have, you know, call it two or three different land parcels. And then you're trying to make sure, well, has somebody already planted a flag there, right? Like if another developer's already on the block, well, I'm just not gonna get into, you know, a back and forth about who's who's decided is and buying them out potentially. So you might want to find a block where there isn't someone already kind of taking claim, or we're doing that heavy lifting. And then it's about trying to figure what is the landlord then? And oftentimes this is the part you get tripped up, tripped up on because you can find the site. It makes sense. You know, you can get, you know, 200,000 square feet of density. It all makes sense. But then you have a landowner who has, you know, very healthy expectations. And then you're like, okay, well, is it worth the ongoing negotiation? Do I approach somebody else on the block? And then you got to figure out the art versus the science. So it's, it can be very complicated, but, you know, knowing where to look, be persistent and be transparent. Like, I, I get a lot of guys who and girls who always say, well, you know, I'm going in. They don't know I'm a developer. Like these yields are just too complicated, just be Frank. Like if you're in to develop, just say, I'm a developer because your diligence and your risk is so different than potentially somebody just buying it for commercial use that you have to make the vendor aware of that. So you can actually successfully closing the transaction and, and, and cover your downside. I always say, cover your downside. So that transparency is pretty, pretty critical. If you're gonna ask why, why do you want to put a bunch of holes in my, in my back, you know, lot, if, if you're buying this for just, you know, retail, you, so eventually the cat comes out of the bag. I mean, Jesse (20m 10s): Is that my guess, is that as a result of, you know, the expectation that an owner is going to be like, we want a development bonus as part of this deal, or we want, you know, some premium. And I feel like at the end of the day, it's going to be really hard to go in and not just say like this, this is what we're doing. We're developing. Bader (20m 28s): Yeah. It's like, you know what? I, I won't discount that. I think, you know, once in a blue moon you'll find a site for young native development value. You're not paying for development value. You're not paying the full amount, but in a city like Toronto, I, unfortunately my belief is like, it's opposite. The people who have zero development value believes had development value. So it's the, you know, like the, the starting point is my woman, my retail, you know, building is worth, you know, $200 a square foot of a GSA on zone, even though like it's never going to be a development site. That's kind of the, you know, the, the challenge is like, I actually find, I hear this from my, my friends kind of on the retail side. They say, everybody just thinks of developments. I can't even, you know, I haven't managed to go out and buy a 3000 square foot commercial building for one of my private investors. And I can't get one because everybody I talked to, you know, wants to sell it at like a two town development site. Yeah. Jesse (21m 27s): And it's just like one of those things where it's like, well, if it's not a development site, it's not for sale. And we'll, we'll just hang on in from your experience when you are looking at these development sites. I mean, I feel like a big part of what you're talking about is, is the reason that the risk mitigation is in place income, where you can find something that might be a longer term play. Number one, is, is that how you look at it? And the second question, I'm curious if you make a distinction between properties that are, you know, have decent buildings on them, but it's really not highest and best use versus properties that are pretty much, you know, close as close as you can get in Toronto to dirt. Bader (22m 6s): You know what, I don't really make that distinction all too often. I think what, what comes into play is existing use, for sure. Like I have no problem tearing down a four story building versus a two story building it's really w what's Lee's use and, and there's implications to it, right? So if you have an office building that has more than 10,000 square feet in certain areas of the city, I have to replace one for one that call it loss office space in my future development. So that has an implication on your land value. So I look at it from that lens, you know, certainly like, you know, whether or not it's a scale of the building. Yes. It will have some implication to, you know, the demo costs or, or potentially other factors of the process. But oftentimes I'm, I'm more concerned about what is the existing use. If it's, if it's residential, it becomes very problematic. That's the, like, that's the hard part, because now you're negotiating with a bunch of different tenants to try to get them out. And then you have to replace the existing space in your new building. And the, the process of the city is just far more complicated. You, you know, when you have to offer the opportunity to get residents to come back in the future, if now I have a rental component potentially in a condo building, so it's just a different use. There's a lot more complications. And, and that space just to put in perspective is a work, you know, call it 40 cents on the dollar of what a typical condo would sell for in the building. So it's quite diluted, which is candidly, why you often see, you know, some medium-sized rental buildings not being redeveloped, even though there's great context for it. It's just very, it's very difficult if the numbers work. Jesse (23m 50s): So on that point for those that you might not be aware of, like we have, we have listeners south of the 49th parallel north. I tried to tell people, you know, what we deal with specifically in, in Ontario in terms of landlord, tenant, board stuff, just residential regulations, when it comes to actually, you know, taking down a, say, mid or low rise apartment building, what are the, you know, w w what do you have to replace there in terms of replacement of rental units? And maybe you could go into a little bit more detail on, on that. Bader (24m 27s): Yeah, absolutely. So, and this is very call it city of Toronto specific. So every municipality will have their own rule that you have to be considerate of, but, okay. So Jesse (24m 40s): In terms of, maybe you could talk a little bit more about that, the residential replacement. So for those that don't know, you know, Toronto, Toronto is pretty, pretty tenant friendly environment from a regulatory standpoint. What exactly, when you look at a, an apartment building that you need to tear down in order to build, what is that, what are the implications of that and what technically do you need to do as a developer? Bader (25m 5s): Yeah, so it's, it's quite complicated. So the very first thing he had to keep in mind is, you know, every municipality has slightly different rules. So what might be like, I'm going to talk about Toronto because that's where most of our businesses, but Mississauga might have something slightly different bond will have something different. So I'm always read up and don't take what I'm saying right now at face value. But in Toronto specific specifically, I should say, we'll always look and see how many residential units there are. So the rule is that there's six or more residential units. You have to replace them one for one in your future development. So both by unit type unit saw and unit size. So we all tend to know that, you know, older units typically have a larger three averages. You know, you're seeing these like two beds that are 1200 square feet. So you have to be very cognizant of the area and the unit type, and then the rent that are being charged, because once you actually go through the redevelopment process, what you'll have is no rental replacement units. So let's say you have 60 units in your building. You'll actually have 50 units in the building, the same size and similar layouts at your development. Upon completion, you have to offer the tenants who were, you know, effectively relocated during the construction periods, operating to move back into the building. And the rents that are charged at that time are the same rents that were charged prior to the construction taking place. So, as you can imagine, you're in this condominium building, let's say the, you know, the average one bedroom rents are $1,800 a unit for a, you know, 500 and ish square foot unit. Now you might have a one bedroom in the rental replacement portion of the building, which is going to be 800 square feet and renting out for now $1,300. So, you know, it's very, you know, call it value destructive, which is why you often see some buildings do have rental replacement. We've done several developments where, you know, we've, we've had to include some call it affordable housing or rental, but there's, you know, call it a tipping point. If you have a building, like let's say, you know, a building where 25 to 30% of the building is going to be rental replacement. The economics of that deal tend to skew in a, in a way that don't make it really feasible. And, you know, it's one of those things where you're often looking at opportunities and you're thinking to yourself, well, there's a, a four story building here. Why doesn't this get redeveloped into a, you know, a 35 story tower, and oftentimes with the value that is lost, or the implications of that rental replacement in the future development don't really add up. It becomes an N call it a deal doesn't really pencil out with very uneconomical. So I'm sure that will change over time, right there. Like it's always worth revisiting the math, but I was in the city for the last several years. The math hasn't really penciled out where you could replace a large quantum of units. And in Jesse (28m 18s): Terms of the, I mean, Toronto specifically in terms of the actual replacement geography, you know, whether it's site or you can cause we've seen clients where they have gotten away with being able to replace it on a different site. Is that something that you see and is that kind of where you see potentially rental replacement going? Bader (28m 37s): Yeah. You know what it's, that is a very unique way of addressing the challenge, right. I would say oftentimes when I've seen it done, you know, quote unquote offsite really has to be a, maybe one of two ways. They, you have to be a really significant gift. So let's say for instance, you know, you you're replacing six units, but instead of replacing them six units onsite, you're willing to do 10 units offsite in a standalone building or something, you know, I could, I I've seen that happen. And, you know, it's, it, it, it certainly exists. It's just a different challenge right now, as a developer, I have to find this other replacement site to put these 10 units in, and that's a whole nother work stream and challenge on its own, but certainly doable. The other one I've seen where it's significant. So, you know, let's say you're demolishing 50 townhomes that are all rental. Well, you might actually need a very large site. I've seen, you know, someone build a, a six or eight story, you know, rental replacement building, where it's just a building where, you know, all those units are consolidated into, you know, a mid-rise built form, which, you know, might make sense depending on the project. So I certainly seen unique angles to solving the problem, but it's not without challenge because now oftentimes what you'll see in those agreements is those units have to be, have to be delivered first. So you're front ending calls with that cash flow or your front ending, like your time and energy to solve that problem right off the bat. So certainly not impossible. There's a lot of different ways to like, again, approach the challenge, but it's, it's complicated. Don't underestimate that, you know, I find a lot of people just typically say, okay, I'll figure it out. This is one you might want to sign that. Jesse (30m 29s): Yeah, for sure. So Bever, let's talk a little bit about 20, 21 and beyond in terms of what you're, what you're looking at, where you're seeing opportunity, you know, what's next for center court, you know, from a real estate perspective. And given obviously with the, with the fact that we've gone through quite a tumultuous last 12 to 18 months, just as an industry. And I mean, as, as a world, but yeah. What are your, what are your thoughts on the outlook? Bader (30m 59s): You know, I, I sound like a book, a broken record, cause I feel a lot of my colleagues in the community will say this, but we're very optimistic about condo and high rise development here in the city. You know, Centre court, we sold four buildings, all the downtown core or the past, you know, 15 ish months. And we launched our 55 Mercer project right before COVID in February, 2020. We launched our 1 99 church project. You know, we're coming out of the first lockdown in, in July of 2020. We launched our eight, well, we project, you know, right. When can we have lockdown again in February of this year? And then prime are last on the heels of that. And we're gearing up for one or two more launches this year. So we're clearly, you know, big believers in the condo market here in Toronto. We believe that two things it's still off the traunch is still the most desirable city in our, in our opinion in north America to live in, if not, it's not globally, we just have so much going for us. There's clearly a housing shortage. There's a, you know, a problem with affordability in this city and condominiums tend to be on the more affordable end of the range relative to, you know, the town, their single family home. So, and then just, you know, more scientifically the spread between a condo a, in a home has never been wider right now. So in terms of price point, which tells us that there's, you know, upward momentum and pricing for condominiums and, and, and certainly demands. So all in all, you know, we're, we're very, as a competence and an optimistic about the future. And to that end, you know, we have, we're launching new projects and we're acquiring more sites. You know, we're constantly looking sites. We haven't stopped. You know, there was a bit of a brief pause, I would say, obviously in new call it March, April, may of 2020, when, and we just, we had no idea what was going to happen here locally or in the world, but the market has found its footing. And since that time, we've, we've been very confident and, and continue to kind of operations. As I wouldn't say I was normal, but you know, operations as close to normal as one would expect, given the backdrop of COVID. Jesse (33m 33s): And with that as the backdrop, in terms of capital markets, do you see this, you know, environment continuing over the next few years? I mean, we've, I mean, I don't know how many times I've said historically low over the last 10 years, but we've, we're in an environment where they're very different to oh 7 0 8 where there was an issue, but there was also a credit issue. There's a recession in conjunction with lack of credit. Whereas right now we're, you know, we're in a very similar type of macro economic state, except that there seems to be the opposite. There's a glut of credit. Bader (34m 9s): Yeah. I think the biggest thing that differentiates, you know, call it COVID from the recession. And I think you'll forget what the, you know, the, the great recession, but mostly because of Canada, you can look them up a bit on escaped, but you know, if you take a step back, there is just never the quantitative stimulant, right? Like, yes, the credit of the available is one thing, but the wage support subsidies the effectively, the banks just stepping up and working with business owners and, and, and operators, right. To make sure that they don't repossess your, her, your business or your site or your home or whatever, like that's unprecedented, right? So the level of cooperation and stimulus in the marketplace has never been seen before. And I think that is, you know, I think it's absolutely the right thing to do, but it's certainly giving people the confidence to continue as business as usual. That's the whole point of these programs. And then when you have that, and then in the property market, ultra low interest rates, you have consumers who I would say are pretty highly qualified. Like there's a lot of, you know, folks who, who do have significant down payments who have good income, who are working, who don't, who have been working from home. Haven't we been spending have either paid down debt and, and a rage to deploy that capital, whether it's, you know, in residential or other markets. So there's kind of this trifecta, which is kind of Lea. And then there's just the aspirations of whether it's home ownership or putting money to work. And in real estate, which has kind of been a bit of a bright spot in, in all of this. So you'll all these things I think have led to a very healthy, real estate market, particularly on the resi side. And, and I think, I don't think that's going to change. I think again, people get interest rates are probably going to edge up right over time and that's going to change the equation slightly, but, you know, overall, you know, it might not be as buoyant as it is today, but I still think we're going to be looking at a very healthy market, you know, whether it's the next one, two or three years, for sure. Jesse (36m 25s): Awesome. All right. Well, we're just coming to the end here and before we, if people want to get more information on center court and reach out before we get there for questions, we ask every guest kind of a rapid fire. If you're good to go, I'll toss them at ya. All right. Something, you know, now that you wish you knew at the beginning of your career, Bader (36m 51s): You're not going to become a, an expert in two to three years to be more patient, more like out about 10 to 15, and you're just always continue learning. So if you think, you know it all at two or three years, you don't keep your head down, work hard, read a lot, figure out who actually knows what they're talking about and listen to them. And it wasn't to people who don't know what they're talking about. And maybe take a couple of notes from that too. Jesse (37m 15s): It's weighted average. All right. The I'm sorry. Next question. In terms of mentorship, younger people in our industry, specifically, what are number one, what's your view of men mentorship, and you know, what would you tell somebody coming into this industry? Bader (37m 31s): Mentorship is critical. I know it can be awkward, right? How do I find a mentor? It gets, it's kind of weird, but I, you know, I have two mentors that, you know, have been my mentors now for maybe five or six years. And I don't think they know they're my mentors. I don't think it's a formal arrangement, but they're people I use as a sounding board before making major decisions are people who I listened to and, and, you know, maybe track their career path and, and, you know, have candid conversations about what has gone, right. And what's gone wrong and you know, what I'm happy about or unhappy about. And I think if you find the right person, they can be that sounding board and, and have that north star that keeps you candidly on, on track because it's so easy to, you know, find yourself off the, off in left field. If you, if you don't have someone to talk to and share your thoughts and your ideas with so definitely don't underestimate it. And biggest thing is I know it's, again, it's very odd. It's hard to find a mentor. You're not going to find a mentor, maybe your first job or your second job. It might take a bit of time, but you'll know when, when that person's there and, and jump on the opportunity, don't be shy Jesse (38m 41s): Right. On what resources are you kind of reading or listening to right now that you'd recommend to the listeners? Bader (38m 50s): You know what, so we have a newborn, so I haven't read anything I have to call in the last five months. Yeah. I don't know on that stuff. How to keep your baby alive, what I've been reading, but the one book that I would recommend is am I being too subtle? Bye bye. Sam Sao. Yeah. I don't know if you've read it Jesse, but yeah, I think it's a fantastic book. You know, it's all about importance of reputation, you know, margin of safety, having skin in the game. It's, it's written kind of my, you know, I'm like, I call it Bible, but like everything I, I believe is in that book. And I, I recently re-read it, you know, over Christmas break and I think it's a good read and we're picking up Jesse (39m 38s): The funny thing too, is for those of that know Sam Zell, I was actually surprised the audio book had his voice on it. So if you like that raspy voice, there's five hours of it. Awesome, man, last question. There's our layup. First car make and model Bader (39m 56s): My first car, make and model. Oh, Volkswagen Jetta VR, six block, black leather interior smashed to the ground. I had two 12 inch subwoofers in the back. It was, it was my, honestly I regrets on the park. It was my favorite. It was, I bought it. I worked, I worked so many odd jobs to pay for that car and I kept it until I was 21. And I sold it to the kid across the street for like a, a handshake. And I regret it. It's like my, it was my favorite car. Yeah. It Jesse (40m 35s): Was always that in high school, the VR six two, it was always that unattainable. I'm just picturing like a hot wheels. Blacked-out tint windows. Awesome, man. That's great. Yeah, listen, I really appreciate it. I thought we could probably talk for another hour here for, for listeners for those that want more information on center court and see what you're up to. We can put some stuff in the show notes here. Just point me in the right direction. Bader (41m 1s): Yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. I'll I'll shoot that over to you, Jesse. Okay. Jesse (41m 5s): Sounds good. Well, I appreciate you coming on and yeah, we'll look forward to doing this again, maybe six months or a little bit closer to the end of the year where we can kind of check in and see how everything's going. Bader (41m 19s): Terrific. Well, look, I appreciate it. Hopefully I haven't checked hopefully Italy one and absolutely I'll take you up on that offer. We can spend for something in for December.

On Thursday July 28th, 2016 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will review and discuss Frank Herbert's 1965 science-fiction classic Dune from a magical (Hermetic) perspective and as a prophetic political allegory. Sci-Fi Writer Orson Scott Card wrote: "Remember that Herbert wrote Dune in the 1960s, before the first oil embargo, before any Islamist government was ever formed. Whether Dune had any causal influence on the rise of Al Qaeda, Herbert certainly did a superb job of predicting the rise and the power of such an ideology. The spice must flow, and so must the oil. So the political allegory is obvious but what about the hermetic magical aspect: in the 1960s when Herbert conceived Dune the big psycho-spiritual experience was LSD. Acid offered expansion of consciousness, instant enlightenment and for some, extension of consciousness. Soul travel. Hermes once wrote that one could go anywhere in the Universe instantly at the speed of thought. Some Eastern gurus had also declared that this was possible. So Frank Herbert's Spice Melange was conceived as a psychedelic agent that would enable astronaut navigators to warp space with the power of their minds -- and go anywhere in the galaxy mentally and physically. That is one Hermetic magical aspect. There is also a witchcraft cult that engages in genetic engineering, trying to breed a Demigod messiah who will launch a Jihad to conquer the galaxy. So if you'd like to consider the not so hidden inner meanings of this classic, tune in and we'll have a 21st century look back at Dune.

With family: Judges 10–11:11; Acts 14 Judges 10–11:11 (Listen) Tola and Jair 10 After Abimelech there arose to save Israel Tola the son of Puah, son of Dodo, a man of Issachar, and he lived at Shamir in the hill country of Ephraim. 2 And he judged Israel twenty-three years. Then he died and was buried at Shamir. 3 After him arose Jair the Gileadite, who judged Israel twenty-two years. 4 And he had thirty sons who rode on thirty donkeys, and they had thirty cities, called Havvoth-jair to this day, which are in the land of Gilead. 5 And Jair died and was buried in Kamon. Further Disobedience and Oppression 6 The people of Israel again did what was evil in the sight of the LORD and served the Baals and the Ashtaroth, the gods of Syria, the gods of Sidon, the gods of Moab, the gods of the Ammonites, and the gods of the Philistines. And they forsook the LORD and did not serve him. 7 So the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he sold them into the hand of the Philistines and into the hand of the Ammonites, 8 and they crushed and oppressed the people of Israel that year. For eighteen years they oppressed all the people of Israel who were beyond the Jordan in the land of the Amorites, which is in Gilead. 9 And the Ammonites crossed the Jordan to fight also against Judah and against Benjamin and against the house of Ephraim, so that Israel was severely distressed. 10 And the people of Israel cried out to the LORD, saying, “We have sinned against you, because we have forsaken our God and have served the Baals.” 11 And the LORD said to the people of Israel, “Did I not save you from the Egyptians and from the Amorites, from the Ammonites and from the Philistines? 12 The Sidonians also, and the Amalekites and the Maonites oppressed you, and you cried out to me, and I saved you out of their hand. 13 Yet you have forsaken me and served other gods; therefore I will save you no more. 14 Go and cry out to the gods whom you have chosen; let them save you in the time of your distress.” 15 And the people of Israel said to the LORD, “We have sinned; do to us whatever seems good to you. Only please deliver us this day.” 16 So they put away the foreign gods from among them and served the LORD, and he became impatient over the misery of Israel. 17 Then the Ammonites were called to arms, and they encamped in Gilead. And the people of Israel came together, and they encamped at Mizpah. 18 And the people, the leaders of Gilead, said one to another, “Who is the man who will begin to fight against the Ammonites? He shall be head over all the inhabitants of Gilead.” Jephthah Delivers Israel 11 Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty warrior, but he was the son of a prostitute. Gilead was the father of Jephthah. 2 And Gilead's wife also bore him sons. And when his wife's sons grew up, they drove Jephthah out and said to him, “You shall not have an inheritance in our father's house, for you are the son of another woman.” 3 Then Jephthah fled from his brothers and lived in the land of Tob, and worthless fellows collected around Jephthah and went out with him. 4 After a time the Ammonites made war against Israel. 5 And when the Ammonites made war against Israel, the elders of Gilead went to bring Jephthah from the land of Tob. 6 And they said to Jephthah, “Come and be our leader, that we may fight against the Ammonites.” 7 But Jephthah said to the elders of Gilead, “Did you not hate me and drive me out of my father's house? Why have you come to me now when you are in distress?” 8 And the elders of Gilead said to Jephthah, “That is why we have turned to you now, that you may go with us and fight against the Ammonites and be our head over all the inhabitants of Gilead.” 9 Jephthah said to the elders of Gilead, “If you bring me home again to fight against the Ammonites, and the LORD gives them over to me, I will be your head.” 10 And the elders of Gilead said to Jephthah, “The LORD will be witness between us, if we do not do as you say.” 11 So Jephthah went with the elders of Gilead, and the people made him head and leader over them. And Jephthah spoke all his words before the LORD at Mizpah. (ESV) Acts 14 (Listen) Paul and Barnabas at Iconium 14 Now at Iconium they entered together into the Jewish synagogue and spoke in such a way that a great number of both Jews and Greeks believed. 2 But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers.1 3 So they remained for a long time, speaking boldly for the Lord, who bore witness to the word of his grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands. 4 But the people of the city were divided; some sided with the Jews and some with the apostles. 5 When an attempt was made by both Gentiles and Jews, with their rulers, to mistreat them and to stone them, 6 they learned of it and fled to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the surrounding country, 7 and there they continued to preach the gospel. Paul and Barnabas at Lystra 8 Now at Lystra there was a man sitting who could not use his feet. He was crippled from birth and had never walked. 9 He listened to Paul speaking. And Paul, looking intently at him and seeing that he had faith to be made well,2 10 said in a loud voice, “Stand upright on your feet.” And he sprang up and began walking. 11 And when the crowds saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in Lycaonian, “The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!” 12 Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul, Hermes, because he was the chief speaker. 13 And the priest of Zeus, whose temple was at the entrance to the city, brought oxen and garlands to the gates and wanted to offer sacrifice with the crowds. 14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of it, they tore their garments and rushed out into the crowd, crying out, 15 “Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men, of like nature with you, and we bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them. 16 In past generations he allowed all the nations to walk in their own ways. 17 Yet he did not leave himself without witness, for he did good by giving you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness.” 18 Even with these words they scarcely restrained the people from offering sacrifice to them. Paul Stoned at Lystra 19 But Jews came from Antioch and Iconium, and having persuaded the crowds, they stoned Paul and dragged him out of the city, supposing that he was dead. 20 But when the disciples gathered about him, he rose up and entered the city, and on the next day he went on with Barnabas to Derbe. 21 When they had preached the gospel to that city and had made many disciples, they returned to Lystra and to Iconium and to Antioch, 22 strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying that through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God. 23 And when they had appointed elders for them in every church, with prayer and fasting they committed them to the Lord in whom they had believed. Paul and Barnabas Return to Antioch in Syria 24 Then they passed through Pisidia and came to Pamphylia. 25 And when they had spoken the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia, 26 and from there they sailed to Antioch, where they had been commended to the grace of God for the work that they had fulfilled. 27 And when they arrived and gathered the church together, they declared all that God had done with them, and how he had opened a door of faith to the Gentiles. 28 And they remained no little time with the disciples. Footnotes  14:2 Or brothers and sisters  14:9 Or be saved (ESV) In private: Jeremiah 23; Mark 9 Jeremiah 23 (Listen) The Righteous Branch 23 “Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture!” declares the LORD. 2 Therefore thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who care for my people: “You have scattered my flock and have driven them away, and you have not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for your evil deeds, declares the LORD. 3 Then I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the countries where I have driven them, and I will bring them back to their fold, and they shall be fruitful and multiply. 4 I will set shepherds over them who will care for them, and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall any be missing, declares the LORD. 5 “Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. 6 In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And this is the name by which he will be called: ‘The LORD is our righteousness.' 7 “Therefore, behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when they shall no longer say, ‘As the LORD lives who brought up the people of Israel out of the land of Egypt,' 8 but ‘As the LORD lives who brought up and led the offspring of the house of Israel out of the north country and out of all the countries where he1 had driven them.' Then they shall dwell in their own land.” Lying Prophets 9 Concerning the prophets: My heart is broken within me; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, like a man overcome by wine, because of the LORD and because of his holy words.10 For the land is full of adulterers; because of the curse the land mourns, and the pastures of the wilderness are dried up. Their course is evil, and their might is not right.11 “Both prophet and priest are ungodly; even in my house I have found their evil, declares the LORD.12 Therefore their way shall be to them like slippery paths in the darkness, into which they shall be driven and fall, for I will bring disaster upon them in the year of their punishment, declares the LORD.13 In the prophets of Samaria I saw an unsavory thing: they prophesied by Baal and led my people Israel astray.14 But in the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen a horrible thing: they commit adultery and walk in lies; they strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that no one turns from his evil; all of them have become like Sodom to me, and its inhabitants like Gomorrah.”15 Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets: “Behold, I will feed them with bitter food and give them poisoned water to drink, for from the prophets of Jerusalem ungodliness has gone out into all the land.” 16 Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you, filling you with vain hopes. They speak visions of their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD. 17 They say continually to those who despise the word of the LORD, ‘It shall be well with you'; and to everyone who stubbornly follows his own heart, they say, ‘No disaster shall come upon you.'” 18 For who among them has stood in the council of the LORD to see and to hear his word, or who has paid attention to his word and listened?19 Behold, the storm of the LORD! Wrath has gone forth, a whirling tempest; it will burst upon the head of the wicked.20 The anger of the LORD will not turn back until he has executed and accomplished the intents of his heart. In the latter days you will understand it clearly. 21 “I did not send the prophets, yet they ran; I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied.22 But if they had stood in my council, then they would have proclaimed my words to my people, and they would have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their deeds. 23 “Am I a God at hand, declares the LORD, and not a God far away? 24 Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the LORD. Do I not fill heaven and earth? declares the LORD. 25 I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy lies in my name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!' 26 How long shall there be lies in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies, and who prophesy the deceit of their own heart, 27 who think to make my people forget my name by their dreams that they tell one another, even as their fathers forgot my name for Baal? 28 Let the prophet who has a dream tell the dream, but let him who has my word speak my word faithfully. What has straw in common with wheat? declares the LORD. 29 Is not my word like fire, declares the LORD, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? 30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, declares the LORD, who steal my words from one another. 31 Behold, I am against the prophets, declares the LORD, who use their tongues and declare, ‘declares the LORD.' 32 Behold, I am against those who prophesy lying dreams, declares the LORD, and who tell them and lead my people astray by their lies and their recklessness, when I did not send them or charge them. So they do not profit this people at all, declares the LORD. 33 “When one of this people, or a prophet or a priest asks you, ‘What is the burden of the LORD?' you shall say to them, ‘You are the burden,2 and I will cast you off, declares the LORD.' 34 And as for the prophet, priest, or one of the people who says, ‘The burden of the LORD,' I will punish that man and his household. 35 Thus shall you say, every one to his neighbor and every one to his brother, ‘What has the LORD answered?' or ‘What has the LORD spoken?' 36 But ‘the burden of the LORD' you shall mention no more, for the burden is every man's own word, and you pervert the words of the living God, the LORD of hosts, our God. 37 Thus you shall say to the prophet, ‘What has the LORD answered you?' or ‘What has the LORD spoken?' 38 But if you say, ‘The burden of the LORD,' thus says the LORD, ‘Because you have said these words, “The burden of the LORD,” when I sent to you, saying, “You shall not say, ‘The burden of the LORD,'” 39 therefore, behold, I will surely lift you up3 and cast you away from my presence, you and the city that I gave to you and your fathers. 40 And I will bring upon you everlasting reproach and perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.'” Footnotes  23:8 Septuagint; Hebrew I  23:33 Septuagint, Vulgate; Hebrew What burden?  23:39 Or surely forget you (ESV) Mark 9 (Listen) 9 And he said to them, “Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power.” The Transfiguration 2 And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, 3 and his clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one1 on earth could bleach them. 4 And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. 5 And Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi,2 it is good that we are here. Let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” 6 For he did not know what to say, for they were terrified. 7 And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is my beloved Son;3 listen to him.” 8 And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them but Jesus only. 9 And as they were coming down the mountain, he charged them to tell no one what they had seen, until the Son of Man had risen from the dead. 10 So they kept the matter to themselves, questioning what this rising from the dead might mean. 11 And they asked him, “Why do the scribes say that first Elijah must come?” 12 And he said to them, “Elijah does come first to restore all things. And how is it written of the Son of Man that he should suffer many things and be treated with contempt? 13 But I tell you that Elijah has come, and they did to him whatever they pleased, as it is written of him.” Jesus Heals a Boy with an Unclean Spirit 14 And when they came to the disciples, they saw a great crowd around them, and scribes arguing with them. 15 And immediately all the crowd, when they saw him, were greatly amazed and ran up to him and greeted him. 16 And he asked them, “What are you arguing about with them?” 17 And someone from the crowd answered him, “Teacher, I brought my son to you, for he has a spirit that makes him mute. 18 And whenever it seizes him, it throws him down, and he foams and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid. So I asked your disciples to cast it out, and they were not able.” 19 And he answered them, “O faithless generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him to me.” 20 And they brought the boy to him. And when the spirit saw him, immediately it convulsed the boy, and he fell on the ground and rolled about, foaming at the mouth. 21 And Jesus asked his father, “How long has this been happening to him?” And he said, “From childhood. 22 And it has often cast him into fire and into water, to destroy him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” 23 And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can'! All things are possible for one who believes.” 24 Immediately the father of the child cried out4 and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!” 25 And when Jesus saw that a crowd came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “You mute and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” 26 And after crying out and convulsing him terribly, it came out, and the boy was like a corpse, so that most of them said, “He is dead.” 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose. 28 And when he had entered the house, his disciples asked him privately, “Why could we not cast it out?” 29 And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.”5 Jesus Again Foretells Death, Resurrection 30 They went on from there and passed through Galilee. And he did not want anyone to know, 31 for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill him. And when he is killed, after three days he will rise.” 32 But they did not understand the saying, and were afraid to ask him. Who Is the Greatest? 33 And they came to Capernaum. And when he was in the house he asked them, “What were you discussing on the way?” 34 But they kept silent, for on the way they had argued with one another about who was the greatest. 35 And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” 36 And he took a child and put him in the midst of them, and taking him in his arms, he said to them, 37 “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me.” Anyone Not Against Us Is for Us 38 John said to him, “Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name,6 and we tried to stop him, because he was not following us.” 39 But Jesus said, “Do not stop him, for no one who does a mighty work in my name will be able soon afterward to speak evil of me. 40 For the one who is not against us is for us. 41 For truly, I say to you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ will by no means lose his reward. Temptations to Sin 42 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin,7 it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea. 43 And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than with two hands to go to hell,8 to the unquenchable fire.9 45 And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame than with two feet to be thrown into hell. 47 And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell, 48 ‘where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.' 49 For everyone will be salted with fire.10 50 Salt is good, but if the salt has lost its saltiness, how will you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.” Footnotes  9:3 Greek launderer (gnapheus)  9:5 Rabbi means my teacher, or my master  9:7 Or my Son, my (or the) Beloved  9:24 Some manuscripts add with tears  9:29 Some manuscripts add and fasting  9:38 Some manuscripts add who does not follow us  9:42 Greek to stumble; also verses 43, 45, 47  9:43 Greek Gehenna; also verse 47  9:43 Some manuscripts add verses 44 and 46 (which are identical with verse 48)  9:49 Some manuscripts add and every sacrifice will be salted with salt (ESV)

"I shall sing of Zeus, the best and greatest of the Gods; far-seeing, mighty, fulfiller of designs..." Homeric Hymn to ZeusReal change begins with a change in perspective. The old myths offer a valuable lens and means to make such a shift. They reveal the shared webs of meaning and images that are the source of ideologies, theologies, and other constructs.Greek mythology continues to be a particularly strong influence in the world today, given the colonizing history of Western culture. I think it can help us understand the deeper themes in this time of social unrest and transformation.In this episode, we examine the Greek myths surrounding Zeus, the ruler of gods and men. What do these stories suggest about power, legitimate authority, and justice?This episode builds on ideas in the last one, "Meaning is magic: the trickster Hermes and radical change." You might want to listen to that one first, if you haven't already.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/mythmatterspodcast)

About Today's Guest: Today we're talking Merrily & Patrick Harpur about Merrily's book Mystery Big Cats. It's a book that covers the phenomenon of strange, almost spiritual encounters with what are sometimes called Anomalous Big Cats or British Big Cats. A branch on the cryptozoology tree that doesn't usually get the attention it should, because of the resemblance to known animals. A deeper look shows that conventional theories and conclusions do not match the strange encounters and experiences of those who have them. Maybe these manifestations, now the most common unexplainable encounter in Britain, are part of a larger Diamonic Reality?
