Dissatisfied ChristiansAre you a Christian who is frustrated with the Church? If you are, you're not alone. More and more Christians are frustrated with the Church than ever.I recently had a conversation with a passionate follower of Jesus, evidenced by his many Christian tattoos. He even had some in biblical Hebrew, but I couldn't read it. I took Hebrew in Seminary, but that was a long time ago and I got a C.I asked him if he was a Christian and what church he went to. He didn't know I was a pastor, so that permitted him to be honest with me.He averted his eyes and shook his head and said, "Man, I'm done with the Church."I felt his frustration and his disappointment. He didn't have to say anything else. I knew what he was feeling.An uncomfortable prolonged beat of silence stretched out between us as searched for something encouraging to say. I'm usually not at a loss for words, but nothing wise and pithy came to me. When he finally reestablished eye contact with me, all I could do is nod my head in agreement and say, "Man, I know what you mean."I used to think that dissatisfaction with the Church was a sign of an individual's spiritual immaturity or religious consumerism. But not anymore. I'm realizing that the angsty dissatisfaction and frustration that many Christians (especially among Gen Y and Gen Z) feel about the Church is becoming normative.But we have to ask, "Is this a good thing?"Is it okay for a Christian to be dissatisfied and frustrated with the Church?Yes, of course, it's okay.Do you know how I know it's okay to be frustrated with the Church? The Head of the Church, our Lord Jesus Christ himself gets frustrated with the Church.In Revelations 2-3, Jesus speaks to the Seven Churches in Asia Minor. For 6 out of 7 of those churches, Jesus has harsh words of rebuke and correction for them. In essence, he says, "I'm not happy with you. If you don't change your ways, I'm going to shut you down."Currently today, I believe that the level of our dissatisfaction with the state of the Church is a huge problem. But the problem isn't that we are too dissatisfied with the Church. I believe that the real problem is that we are not dissatisfied enough.We have become comfortable with how things are. We are happy and content with the mess that the Church is in. Most Christians are just fine with the way things are in the Church even though we have drifted away from God's plan and purpose for us.If you're not disappointed with the Church, just look at what we've become known for. Ask anyone outside the Church what they think of us. What will they say?They will say that we are political, selfish, unloving, and care only about ourselves. They will say we are tribal, judgmental, hypocritical, power-hungry, and driven by greed. They will say we are people who are angry, combative, defensive, and who react out of fear. That we are known more for our passionate fight for our politics and culture war issues, and not the Gospel.This is not how it's supposed to be. We used to be known for our love, unity, and generosity. Reaching out to our neighbors. Caring for the needy. Advocating for the powerless. Welcoming the stranger. Loving our enemies, enduring persecution, and praying for those who persecute us.We were bold proclaimers of the saving message of the Gospel of Jesus. We were once salt and light. A city on a hill to guide the way for a lost and dying world. But now our salt has lost its saltiness.It saddens me that the Church today has become more associated with politics and conspiracy theories than the Gospel of Jesus. It's no wonder that we are becoming less and less relevant to the world God has called us to reach.Jesus asked, "If salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?"More Dissatisfaction, Not LessHow are we going to fix the mess we're in? You may not like my answer.I believe that, if we're going to dig ourselves out of this mess, we need faithful Christians to become more dissatisfied with the Church, not less.I want you to be bothered at how far we've fallen. I want you to be frustrated and grieve and how things are. I want you to get mad at what the Church has become.I see far too many Christians focusing on what's wrong with the world. They get mad and complain about the world, but they ignore what's wrong with us. I want us to take that passion and energy as we look at ourselves and how we need to change.I believe that no biblical, faithful Christian should be satisfied with the state of the Church today. I want to encourage you to be more dissatisfied with the Church, not less. But I want to make sure that your dissatisfaction is productive and not destruction.Two Kinds of DissatisfactionThere are two kinds of dissatisfaction. They may look the same at first glance, but that can't be more different. Sometimes it's hard to tell them apart, but one is good and healthy and the other is bad and destructive.The first type of dissatisfaction is "Productive Dissatisfaction." This is when you say, "Wow, this place is a mess. Let's tear it down so we can fix it and make it better."Imagine the Church is like an old house that you inherit from your grandparents. It's old and smells funny. It has a different ugly mismatched wallpaper in every room. There's termite damage, mold in the walls, faulty electrical wiring, and poisonous lead paint. But at least the asbestos glue is keeping the linoleum in place.Even so, the house has good bones with great potential. You've watched Chip and Joanna Gaines do more with less. So you say, "We got to tear out all that stuff so we can fix it and make it better." That's productive dissatisfaction.The second type of dissatisfaction is "Destructive Dissatisfaction." This is when you see the mess and say, "Let's tear it down and light it on fire!"Which type of dissatisfaction do you have? Productive or destructive? What do you have in your hands? Do you have a broom or a molotov cocktail?Signs of Productive DissatisfactionTo make things better, we need more Christians who are filled with healthy productive dissatisfaction. There's a lot of work to do. If you're ready to put down that molotov cocktail and pick up a broom, I have three suggestions for you.1) Make sure your expectations for the Church are biblical and healthy.Disappoint comes from having unmet expectations. You need to make sure that the expectations you have for the Church come from the Bible. Make sure that your expectations are not selfish, immature, or politically motivated. This isn't a matter of personal preference or opinion. You should expect the Church to be what the Bible says it should be.In Acts 2:40-42, the Bible describes the beautiful beginnings of the Church. It describes a loving community of people from diverse backgrounds who were radically changed by God. They were united by their love for each other and commitment to God's mission.They formed a unique community of trust, vulnerability, love, and support. Former enemies and political rivals became brothers and sisters in God's adopted family. They met together daily in the public square and welcomed each other into their homes. As my father-in-law would say, they gave each other "refrigerator rights."They gathered to study the teachings of Jesus. They ate and shared the bread and wine in remembrance of Jesus' death. They worshiped and praised God together. They joyfully sacrificed for each other. The Bible said they sold their possessions and gave the proceeds to anyone who had a need.And God blessed them. He presence with them in a mighty way. God was at work and they enjoyed favor with all the people. God used this newly formed adopted spiritual family to radically transform their community, and eventually the entire world.We today, the Church, are the direct spiritual descendants of that original family of faith. The bad news is that we have fallen so far from that description that it's hard to believe we have any connection with them at all.If you read the Bible and are frustrated with how short we have fallen from God's plan and design for us, then you're in good company. I share your frustration. I also believe that how things are in the Church today is not how Jesus intended it to be.The first step in reforming the Church is to make sure your expectations are biblical and healthy.2) Make sure your dissatisfaction is motivated by love and concern for the Church.Don't be a hater or a troll. Don't just stand outside and be a critic. Critics don't love what they are criticizing.I'm not saying that you can't say anything critical or challenging about the Church. Just make sure it's coming from a place of love and concern, and not from a critical heart.One of the New Testament Church's biggest critics was the Apostle Paul himself. He was hugely frustrated with the Church at different times. Many of his epistles were written out of frustration at how the Church was missing the mark.The most scathing letter Paul ever wrote was his first epistle to the Church in the city of Corinth. We call it 1 Corinthians. The Church in Corinth had lost its way. It fell into moral compromise and fell into false doctrine. Paul doesn't pull any punches and speaks to them very harshly. But it worked. They receive Paul's instructions and start to turn the church around.A little while later, Paul writes a follow-up letter (we call it 2 Corinthians). In this second letter, Paul softens his tone and apologizes for being so harsh with them earlier.He writes:For I wrote you out of great distress and anguish of heart and with many tears, not to grieve you but to let you know the depth of my love for you. (2 Corinthians 2:4)Paul was frustrated and dissatisfied with the Church at Corinth. He let his frustrations be known loudly and publicly. But, please notice, that his dissatisfaction was motivation out of his love, care, and concern for the Church. He said those harsh words out of "great distress and anguish of heart." Paul cried "many tears" as an expression of the depth of his love for them.The source of Paul's frustration is an example to us. His frustration was motivated by love.When you see the Church going astray, it's okay to be frustrated. As long as it's motivated from a place of love, care, and concern, go ahead and let your frustrations show. Just don't be a hater, a troll, or a critic. Critics don't what they are criticizing.Saint Augustine is a good example of this. During the 4th Century, during a time when the Church was going astray by merging power and identity with the Roman Empire, Saint Augustine valiantly lead a faithful remnant.Faithful Christians were appalled at the level of compromise and corruption in the Church in that era. They were justifiably dissatisfied and frustrated. Many thought that the Church was irredeemable.They complained, "The Church has become a whore! She has become a whore to the Roman Empire!"They wanted to tear down the whole thing and set it on fire. But not Saint Augustine. While he couldn't deny that the Church was becoming more and more corrupted with power and association with the political might of the Roman Empire, he argued for a more productive way forward.Saint Augustine is said to have replied, "The Church may be a whore, but she is my mother."Augustine couldn't deny that the Church was unhealthy and becoming more and more corrupt. But he loved the Church. He couldn't turn his back on her. He couldn't just tear it down and light it on fire.In essence, he said, "I know the Church is a mess, but I love her dearly. Let's figure out how we can fix it, not blow it up."The second step to reforming the Church is to make sure we are motivated by genuine love, care, and concern for the Church.3) Turn your dissatisfaction into a catalyst for change.If you're dissatisfied and frustrated with the Church, don't just complain. Don't just be a critic. Critics never change anything. Instead, allow your dissatisfaction to grow in your soul to become a catalyst for change.One of the ingredients necessary for any change is dissatisfaction. Dissatisfaction is the beginning of change. No change can happen unless you are sick and tired of how things are.As I stated earlier, I believe our problem is that we are not dissatisfied enough. Many of us are dissatisfied enough to complain, or maybe even get up and leave. But I see few Christians dissatisfied enough to make changes.This is how revolutions and reformations are born. They are birthed in the hearts of dissatisfied people who have had enough of the way things are that they finally decide to do something about it.This is how the Civil Rights Movement started. Rosa Parks was sick and tired of being treated as a second-class citizen, so she refused to go to the back of the bus. This is how the Protestant Reformation got started. Martin Luther was sick and tired of all the ways that the Church was becoming unfaithful and corrupt. He wrote a manifesto and detail 95 changes that the Church needed to make and he nailed his lengthy document to the front door of the largest church in town. That manifesto is known as the 95 Thesis became the spark that lit the fire that became the Protestant Reformation.Don't just be a complainer. Become a reformer. Allow your dissatisfaction to become a catalyst for change. Don't just talk about it. Be about it.This reminds me of the story of Nehemiah. He's one of my favorite people in the Bible. Nehemiah was the royal servant to the most powerful man in the world, the King of Babylon. He had a cushy job in the royal palace.Everything was great for Nehemiah. That is until he got a report about the dilapidated conditions of Jerusalem, God's Holy City. When he found out that Jerusalem was in ruins, its walls broken down and gates burned with fire, the Bible said he broke down and wept for days.This lead to a period of fasting, mourning, and prayer. Eventually, his dissatisfaction grew to the point that it was unbearable for him to do nothing about it. That's when he started making a plan to restore Jerusalem.From hundreds of miles away, Nehemiah architected a detailed plan on how he would rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. He calculated how much it would cost, how much lumber and supplies he would need. He thought through the process of getting permits. He decided that he needed security and a line of credit. Included in his plan was an estimate of how long this building project would take.When Nehemiah had the opportunity, he asked the King of Babylon for permission to leave his cushy job in the palace to go and rebuild Jerusalem. When the king asked him what this rebuilding project entailed, Nehemiah, show him the detailed plan he was working on.Nehemiah said, "King, this is how much this project is going to cost. Here is the materials list. This is how many men I'll need to take with me. And this is how long it's going to take. Can I go?"Impressed with Nehemiah's thorough plan, the king blessed Nehemiah's plan and even paid for the whole rebuilding project. When Nehemiah finally arrived in Jerusalem, he gathered up all the people living in the ruined city.He said to them:"You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace." (Nehemiah 2:17)How did the people respond?They replied, "Let us start rebuilding." So they began this good work.The restoration of Jerusalem started as a seed of sadness and dissatisfaction in Nehemiah's heart. It grew to become a catalyst to change. When the people saw Nehemiah's passion for change, it rubbed off on them. And they go to work.Three OptionsThings are bad right now for the Church. There's no denying it.What are we going to do about it?I think there are three options:Ignore it.Complain about it.Or try to fix it.If we're going to fix this mess, we first need passionate, committed Jesus-followers who are filled with dissatisfaction. But we need to make sure that our dissatisfaction is productive, and not destructive. We need a dissatisfaction that comes from biblical and healthy expectations for the Church. We need to make sure that our dissatisfaction is motivated by love and concern for the Church. And we need people who are committed enough to do more than complain but will roll up their sleeves and get to work.Things may be bad right now. You may be dissatisfied with how things are. The Church is a mess right now, so let's pick up a broom and get to work. We need you.

Today we are taking a cross country train ride to the great state of Colorado. On a side note fuck John Elway for crushing our childhood hopes and dreams. Anyway, off to Colorado we go… And yes it's for the weed… Well partly. It's also to visit a landmark known to scores of horror movie fans the world over. The Stanley Hotel! Why, you ask? Cus it's creepy, possibly haunted and because we can do whatever the fuck want… It's our show, even if we do get snubbed by our local entertainment paper for best local podcast. Jerks. But we digress. Today's episode is about a hotel but it starts with a man. Freelan Oscar Stanley. And with that we dig into the history and creepiness of the Stanley hotel! Freelan Oscar Stanley was born, along with his twin brother Frances Edgar Stanley, On June 1st 1849 in Kingfield Maine. Although their family was not wealthy, education was highly valued and knowledge of science, poetry and music were encouraged from a young age. In 1859, At the age of nine, Freelan and Francis started their first business together refining and selling maple sugar. At eleven, their great-uncle, Liberty Stanley, who had raised their father as his own son, taught them the art of violin making. By the age of sixteen, Freelan had completed three instruments. In 1883, Francis developed a machine that coated dry photographic plates. After receiving a patent for their process, the brothers set up a factory in Newton, Massachusetts, to manufacture the plates. In the summer of 1897, they attended a local fair where they witnessed a French inventor demonstrate his steam-driven car. Apparently impelled by his wife's inability to ride a bicycle, Francis vowed to build something that his wife could ride. The French inventor's steam car was the driving force (get it?) Francis needed. After the fair, the brothers began to develop a steam car of their own. The brothers formed a car company in 1898 and produced their first steam car, which was dubbed The Flying Teapot. An instant success, the car was easy to run and achieved a top speed of 35 miles per hour (56 kph), quite fast for the turn of the century. Its major drawback was the need to stop every ten miles or so to refill the boiler. The brothers sold their company after only a few months, but they returned to the business of making cars in 1902 when they formed the Stanley Motor Carriage Company. They staged various events to publicize their steam cars, including racing up mountains and racing against gas-powered cars. Eventually the Stanleys sold their photographic plate business to George Eastman and concentrated on the manufacture of their steam cars, which came to be known unofficially as Stanley Steamers. The brothers continued to build race-winning, steam-powered cars. In 1906, one of their cars--The Rocket, driven by Stanley employee Fred Marriott--set the world's record for the fastest mile: 28.2 seconds, which is a speed of more than 127 miles per hour (204 kph). In 1918, Francis was killed while driving one of his automobiles. He swerved to avoid an obstruction in a mountain road and plunged down an embankment near Ipswich, Massachusetts. At the time of his death, the Stanley Motor Company had suspended automobile production to manufacture engines to pump out Allied trenches during World War I. After The war, Henry Ford's Model T soon came to dominate the American automobile industry. Developments in gas-powered engines, and the limitations of steam cars, signalled the end of the steam-auto era. The Stanley Motor Carriage Company ceased production in 1924. In 1903, at the age of 54, Stanley was stricken with a life-threatening resurgence of tuberculosis. The most highly recommended treatment of the day was fresh, dry air with lots of sunlight and a hearty diet. Therefore, like many "lungers'' of his day, he resolved to take the curative air of Rocky Mountain Colorado. He and Flora arrived in Denver in March and were followed shortly by his Stanley Runabout which was shipped by train. After one night at the famous Brown Palace Hotel, Stanley arranged an appointment with Dr. Charles Bonney (MD, Harvard, 1889), the preeminent American expert in the disease. Dr. Bonney, a great advocate for home treatment, recommended he leave the hotel for a rented house at the first possible convenience. Stanley spent the remainder of the winter at 1401 Gilpin Street but, when his symptoms had not improved by June, he was determined to summer in the Colorado mountains. Bonney recommended Estes Park whose climate he compared with that of Davos, Switzerland, a posh resort for European tuberculetics. On June 29, Stanley saw Flora off by train and stagecoach while he set out in his steam car. Having gotten lost and spent the night in Boulder, Stanley arrived a day later, on June 30. During their first summer the couple stayed in a primitive cabin rented to them by the owners of the Elkhorn Lodge. Over the course of the warm season, Stanley's health improved dramatically. Impressed by the beauty of the valley and grateful for his recovery, he decided to return every year. By the end of the summer of 1903, Stanley had acquired property in Estes Park and, with the help of English architect Henry "Lord Cornwallis'' Rogers who the Stanleys had recently met, he began the construction of Rockside, his home in Colorado. Completed in 1904, the Stanley cottage was built with four bedrooms, gracious living areas and a modern kitchen, so that Flora could entertain summer guests. By 1907, Stanley had all but recovered and he returned to Newton for the winter rather than Denver. However, he and Flora had become enamored with the beauty of the Colorado mountains, often comparing them in speeches with those "rock-ribbed" hills "ancient as the sun" of William Cullen Bryant's poem, “Thanatopsis”. Not content with the rustic accommodations, lazy pastimes and relaxed social scene of their new home, Stanley resolved to turn Estes Park into a resort town. In 1907, construction began on the Hotel Stanley, a grand hotel catering to the class of wealthy urbanites who composed the Stanleys' social circle in Newton. To power the new hotel, Stanley constructed the Fall River Hydro-Plant which consequently brought electricity to Estes Park for the first time. In 1909, their 100-room, East Coast colonial-style “house” was unveiled. Equipped with running water, electricity and telephones, the only amenity the hotel lacked was heat, as the hotel was designed as a summer resort. A two-thirds scaled-down second lodge was finished a year later. (While this might seem ambitious, it's worth noting the top floor was dedicated exclusively to children and nannies.) The buildings were designed by F.O. Stanley with the professional assistance of Denver architect T. Robert Wieger, Henry "Lord Cornwallis" Rogers, and contractor Frank Kirchoff. The site was chosen for its vantage overlooking the Estes valley and Long's Peak within the National Park. The main building, concert hall and Manor House are steel-frame structures on foundations of random rubble granite with clapboard siding and asphalt shingle roof. Originally, Stanley chose a yellow ocher color for the buildings' exteriors with white accents and trim. Every guest room had a telephone and each pair of rooms shared an en suite bathroom with running water supplied by Black Canyon Creek, which had been dammed in 1906. The floor plan of the main hotel (completed 1909) was laid out to accommodate the various activities popular with the American upper class at the turn of the twentieth century and the spaces were decorated accordingly. The music room, for instance, with its cream-colored walls (originally green and white), picture windows and fine, classical plaster-work was designed for letter-writing during the day and chamber music at night – cultured pursuits perceived as feminine. On the other hand, the smoking lounge (today the Piñon Room) and adjoining billiard room, with their dark stained-wood elements and granite arch fireplace were designated for enjoyment by male guests. Stanley himself, having been raised in a conservative household and having recovered from a serious lung disease, did not smoke cigars or drink alcohol, but these were essential after-dinner activities for most men at the time. Billiards, however, was among Stanley's most cherished pastimes. With no central heating or ventilation system, the structure was designed to facilitate natural airflow; the Palladian window at the top of the grand stair could be opened to induce a cross-breeze through the lobby, French doors in all the public spaces open onto verandas, and two curving staircases connecting the guest corridors prevent stagnant air in the upper floors. Although the main hotel is now heated in the winter, guests still depend on natural ventilation for cooling in the summer. Within a few years of opening, a hydraulic elevator was put in operation. In 1916, the east wing of the main building was extended in the rear adding several guest rooms. Around this time, the alcove of the music room was added. In 1921, a rear veranda was enclosed forming a room that currently serves as a gift shop. Around 1935, the hydraulic elevator system was replaced with a cable-operated system and extended to the fourth floor necessitating the addition of a secondary cupola to house the mechanical apparatus. Originally, a porte-cochere or a covered entrance large enough for vehicles to pass through, extended from the central bay of the front porch, but this was removed when the south terrace was converted into a parking lot. In 1983, a service tunnel was excavated, connecting the basement-level corridor to the staff entrance. It is cut directly through the living granite on which the hotel rests. The concert hall, east of the hotel, was built by Stanley in 1909 with the assistance of Henry "Lord Cornwallis" Rogers, the same architect who designed his summer cottage. According to popular legend, it was built by F.O. Stanley as a gift for his wife, Flora. The interior is decorated in the same manner as the music room in the main hotel and vaguely resembles that of the Boston Symphony Hall (McKim, Mead & White, 1900) with which the Stanleys would have been familiar. The stage features a trap door, used for theatrical entrances and exits. The lower level once housed a two-lane bowling alley which was removed during the ownership of Maxwell Abbell. It possibly resembled the bowling alley at the Stanley's Hunnewell Club in Newton, pictures of which are archived in the Newton Free Library. The hall underwent extensive repair and renovation in the 2000s. Once called Stanley Manor, this smaller hotel between the main structure and the concert hall is a 2:3 scaled-down version of the main hotel. Unlike its model, the manor was fully heated from completion in 1910 which may indicate that Stanley planned to use it as a winter resort when the main building was closed for the season. However, unlike many other Colorado mountain towns now famous for their winter sports, Estes Park never attracted off-season visitors in Stanley's day and the manor remained empty for much of the year. Today it is called The Lodge and serves as a bed-and-breakfast that is off-limits to the public. To bring guests from the nearest train depot in the foothills town of Lyons, Colorado, Stanley's car company produced a fleet of specially-designed steam-powered vehicles called Mountain Wagons that seated multiple passengers. Upon opening, the hotel was alleged to be one of the few in the world powered entirely by electricity. However, lack of available power induced the installation of an auxiliary gas lighting system in June 1911. On June 25 – the day after the pipes had been filled – an explosion occurred that injured a maid and damaged the structure, though contemporary newspaper articles differ on certain details. An article from a newspaper at the time started the following "The Stanley Hotel, built at a cost of $500,000, was partly wrecked last night by an explosion of gas. Eight persons were injured, one seriously. None of the guests were injured. Elizabeth Wilson, of Lancaster, Pa., a hotel employee, was hurled from the second to the first floor, and both ankles were broken. The other seven are negro [sic] waiters." When the Lancaster paper reprinted the story, the editor noted that Elizabeth Wilson's name did not appear in local directories and she could not be identified as a Lancastrian. Similar accounts in local Colorado papers give the maid's name as Elizabeth Lambert and convey various dramatic details that are not confirmed by other articles. The most comprehensive and detailed article on the incident appeared on June 29 in the Fort Collins Express and seems to be the most accurate – positively refuting that the maid had been "hurled from the second to the first floor.” That article said this is the incident "The chambermaid, Lizzie Leitenbergher, had both ankles broken, it is thought from the concussion of the explosion, and was thrown into a hole in the floor. She was not, however, thrown through into the dining room, being caught by the timbers and held until rescued. She was taken to a hospital in Longmont. She had been in the employ of the hotel ever since it was built and came here from Philadelphia." The only other injuries mentioned in that article were as follows "Two waiters also sustained slight injuries, one suffering a dislocated hip and the other being struck across the face by a flying plank. Neither of these, however, is in serious condition." Stanley operated the hotel almost as a pastime, remarking once that he spent more money than he made each summer. It was an invite-only gathering place for friends, and haut monde of the time. Haut monde meaning “for fashionable society”. The boujie bastards. John Philip Sousa, the renowned former US Military composer, directed the band at the house's opening. His autograph on the bottom of Flora's piano, which Sousa tuned himself, was mistaken for graffiti by a tuner in the 1990s and removed. Harry Houdini performed in the ornate concert hall; the trapdoor he used for his famous escape act still exists onstage. And while the men shot pool and drank, the women would gather for various letter writing campaigns. The whiskey bar – now one of the state's largest – provided a common ground between the sexes. Yay, whiskey! In 1930, Freelan sold the buildings to a corporation who transformed the property into a hotel. With the nearby national park still growing, their success was minimal. After attempts at a revival, the property was sold to John Cullen in the mid-1990s. Budgets were so stretched that at the time of the sale, the turndown service consisted of the top bed duvet being placed on nails across the window because they couldn't afford drapes. The hotel was not really in a great place for a while. That would change thanks in part to someone we've talked about before… this weird guy named Stephen King. King has told the story many times over the years. In a 1977 interview by the Literary Guild, King recounted "While we were living [in Boulder] we heard about this terrific old mountain resort hotel and decided to give it a try. But when we arrived, they were just getting ready to close for the season, and we found ourselves the only guests in the place—with all those long, empty corridors." King and his wife were served dinner in an empty dining room accompanied by canned orchestral music: "Except for our table all the chairs were up on the tables. So the music is echoing down the hall, and, I mean, it was like God had put me there to hear that and see those things. And by the time I went to bed that night, I had the whole book [The Shining] in my mind." In another retelling, King said "I dreamed of my three-year-old son running through the corridors, looking back over his shoulder, eyes wide, screaming. He was being chased by a fire-hose. I woke up with a tremendous jerk, sweating all over, within an inch of falling out of bed. I got up, lit a cigarette, sat in a chair looking out the window at the Rockies, and by the time the cigarette was done, I had the bones of The Shining firmly set in my mind. In the front matter of the book, King tactfully states "Some of the most beautiful resort hotels in the world are located in Colorado, but the hotel in these pages is based on none of them. The Overlook and the people associated with it exist wholly in the author's imagination." So not only was this hotel the institution of the book the Shining, it was the location of the doll shot for the 1997 tv miniseries of The Shining. Not only that, the hotel was the filming location for another fantastic movie. It serves as the hotel that the dynamic duo of Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne stay in the critically acclaimed, and one of my personal favorite movies; Dumb and Dumber. Several tv shows have also recorded episodes there and the band Murder By Death have played an annual winter show at the location since 2014. I highly recommend their track “As Long As There is Whiskey in The World”. King's novel is based on the famous Stanley Hotel in Colorado, but the exterior shots in the movie are of Oregon's Timberline Lodge. Kubrick agreed to change the infamous room number from 217 to 237 (which does not exist) in the movie because the hotel was worried people would not want to stay in the room in the future. Ironically, room 217 is most often requested at Timberline Lodge, according to the hotel's website. Ok so all of that is well and good but let's be honest, We're here for another reason, the creepy shit! Oddly enough the history of the hotel didn't hold much to attribute to possible haunting or paranormal activity. But that hasn't stopped the belief by many people that the hotel is haunted. Let's check out some of the haunted spots and some stories. Room 217 Perhaps the most famed spot in the Stanley Hotel, this is where horror writer Stephen King spent the night and got the inspiration for his 1977 bestseller "The Shining." You can soak up the same Rocky Mountain views that King got when he stayed there. An added amenity? The room has a library of King novels. The room is thought to be haunted by Elizabeth Wilson, AKA Mrs. Wilson. She was the hotel's head housekeeper and, during a storm in 1911, was injured during an explosion as she was lighting the lanterns in room 217. She survived, though broke her ankles and her spirit seems to be a regular in the room. Guests have reported items moved, luggage unpacked, and lights being turned on and off. Oh, and Mrs. Wilson is old-fashioned: She doesn't like it when unmarried guests shack up together, so some couples have reported feeling a cold force come between them. One of the biggest myths about the room is that it's never available. Not true! You can actually book it and stay there if you have the balls to. We're in! The Vortex From an architectural standpoint, the staircase between floors in the hotel's main guesthouse is a stunner. But the area has also been dubbed “The Vortex” a natural spiral of energy. It's also known as the “rapid transit system” for ghosts that are known to haunt the hotel. Concert Hall There's a lot of paranormal hubbub said to be happening in this famed concert hall. Paul, one of the well-known ghosts haunting The Stanley, was a jack-of-all trades around the hotel. Among his duties? Enforcing an 11 p.m. curfew at the hotel, which could be why guests and workers hear “get out” being uttered late at night. The area is also a favorite spot for hotel founder Flora Stanley's ghost to play the piano. A few of Paul's antics: A construction worker reported he felt Paul nudge him while he was sanding the floors and tour groups on The Stanley ghost tour have reported he flickered a flashlight for them. Another ghost known to wander about the Concert Hall is Lucy, who quite possibly was a runaway or homeless woman who found refuge in the hall. She entertains the requests of ghost hunters, often communicating with them with flashing lights. Stanley historians, however, aren't quite sure about her pre-death connection to the hotel. Room 401 More than a century ago, the entire fourth floor was a cavernous attic. It's where female employees, children, and nannies stayed. Now, today's guests will report hearing children running around, laughing, giggling and playing. Plus, there's a famous closet that tends to open and shut on its own in this room. Room 428 Really, you get a badge of bravery for staying in any room on the fourth floor. But, bonus points if you can book room 428. Guests have reported hearing footsteps above them and furniture moving about. But that's actually physically impossible given the slope of the roof, tour guides say. The real haunt in this room, though, is a friendly cowboy who appears at the corner of the bed. Grand Staircase From antique mirrors and portraits, there's plenty to distract the eye on the grand staircase at The Stanley. But it could also be a popular passageway for the hotel's resident ghosts. In 2016, a visitor from Houston snapped some photos on the grand staircase and, upon returning home and reviewing them, spotted an apparatus at the top of the staircase. The thing is he doesn't remember anybody else being on the staircase at the time he was taking the photographs. The ghostly image of a woman is at the top of the stairs. Underground Caves If you go on the 75-minute night spirit tour at the Stanley (you don't have to be a hotel guest to get in on it, but you should book in advance!), your tour will come to an eerie halt at the end with a visit to the underground cave system. Workers moved about the hotel through the caves in the early days so it makes sense this is a popular haunt. Skeptics will pass off the haunts as breezes from the historic piping and ventilation systems. But, beneath the hotel is a higher-than-average concentration of limestone and quartz, which some ghost hunters believe help capture energy at the property. Well, now that we've talked about some of the hotspots, let's check out some stories about things that have happened there! This first group comes from Kirin Johnson. He has had three separate incidents! My Story Now I will share the three separate paranormal experiences that have changed my belief in ghosts. Despite being a former skeptic, I came to the Stanley with an open mind. While I've seen orbs and have had several strange experiences that I can't explain, what I experienced on Friday, May 26, 2017, was certainly the most intense and frightening experience of them all. Experience #1: A Trolley By The Door At approximately 8:00 p.m., my partner and I came back from a quick trip to the grocery store. Out of nowhere, we heard the sounds of what seemed to be a trolley that was outside of our door. My partner immediately walked over to the door to see who it was. I thought to myself that perhaps it was room service, but I knew we didn't make any requests. Shockingly, my partner looked through the peephole, and there was no one in sight. Although what happened was certainly a shock to us, it wasn't enough to convince me that it was a ghost. At around 11:00 p.m., we decided to reach out to Ms. Elizabeth Wilson (or any other ghost that may have been hanging out in our room). I figured that even if nothing were to come out of it, I can at least say “I tried.” I said to Ms. Wilson: “If you are really here with us, prove it.” I repeated this a couple of times. This was the last thing I had said before I finally went to bed. Experience #2: A Big Bang That Woke Up Other Visitors It was around 2:30 in the morning when I was woken up from a loud noise. Despite my partner being a heavy sleeper, the noise was loud enough to wake him up as well. The loud noise sounded like it came from someone who picked up a large and heavy object, and then slammed it to the floor. Interestingly, it wasn't just my partner and I who woke up from this mysterious noise. Just a moment or two after we woke up, we heard other guests around the hotel speaking and whispering. I was so scared, I asked my partner to put the television on so I could just forget about it and go back to sleep. However, he didn't want the television on. He was more interested in finding out where the noise came from, then going back to sleep. A Strange Discovery The Next Morning When I woke up the next morning, I saw a 20 oz. bottle of Mountain Dew on the floor. My partner's soda somehow fell to the floor in the middle of a quiet night. What's even more odd is that this bottle was loud enough to wake up not just my partner and I, but also other guests who were near our room. I don't believe it was the soda that caused the loud noise. I believe it was a ghost responding to our request to prove it really exists. Other Guests Who Say They Heard A Loud Bang Before we left room 217, I overheard a conversation between several people outside of our room. They were talking about hearing a loud noise late in the night. I spoke with a woman who told us she was staying in a room directly above ours. After I asked her about the loud noise, she said it woke her up around 2:30. The woman described the noise as the fall of a “large barrel.” According to the woman, there was another guest in room 324 who also heard the noise. While on our way to check-out, we ran into a young man who stayed in room 326 with his father. In addition to taking pictures of orbs that were floating outside of room 217 the previous night, he too said he was woken up from what he described as a “loud boom.” Experience #3: The Creepy Laugh Of A Woman While I thought that the extremely loud and unexplained bang was enough to convince me that there really are ghosts roaming the Earth, one more thing happened that night. At around 4:00 a.m., I woke up and realized that less than two hours after the loud bang occurred, it was completely silent in our room. My partner was sound asleep. Just a minute or two after I woke up, out of nowhere I heard the sounds of a chuckle from a woman. Interestingly, it sounded like the ghost was giggling just centimeters away from my ears. I believe that the chuckle had probably come from Elizabeth Wilson. Although it certainly was frightening and quite creepy to me, I was extremely tired. I quickly went back to sleep.

For information on the fascinating history of the Stanley Hotel, visit their official website: StanleyHotel.com After staying just one night in the Stanley's room 217, I went from a skeptic, to a believer in ghosts. If I ever go back to this hotel, I will likely request another room with many reports of supernatural activity. However, regardless of what room you visit at the Stanley Hotel, if you come with an open mind, you just might have a paranormal experience you will never forget. Wow... That's a crazy stay! This next one did not have a name associated with it. “Over the weekend, about 15 coworkers and myself had our company trip to The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, known for being Stephen King's inspiration for “The Shining”. We took an 8pm ghost tour, where we joined about 15 other people to get guided around the property and told stories about it's history and creepy things that are said to have happened. We were told to take lots of pictures, I'm sure to try and capture orbs or ghosts. Many green orbs were caught in pictures, but I don't think anything is as creepy as the photo taken by my coworker- a little girl in a hot pink dress, who was definitely not on our tour. And apparently years ago, a young girl (12-13) by the name of Lucy was squatting in the basement of the concert hall (which is where this photo was taken), and discovered upon plans to begin some construction. She was forced to leave, the night got below freezing, and she froze to death. Everyone on my tour has vouched that this girl was not on our tour (who wouldn't remember someone wearing that hot pink?). The man pictured is our tour guide- no one would have been in front of him. I am convinced this is the ghost of Lucy. Just one more added note, though I doubt if anyone would believe me, but there was only ONE time throughout the tour where I felt any strange energy or feeling, and it was right here, heading down to the basement of the concert hall.” Fucking little kid ghosts… No thanks. This next one is fun! Again no name was presented in the article. “I'm pretty skeptical when it comes to supernatural or paranormal happenings but one thing in particular really messed with my head; at the beginning of the tour you follow tour guide to the music hall which would often be occupied by children playing during the day time.When you arrive in the hall you're are seated in the observation box and given an introduction of sorts explaining that none of the spirits or activity are angry or violent and that alot of the activity was thought to be that of children (especially in this hall). So, our guide asked by show of hands if any of the tour members are good with kids to which I, along with 4 or 5 others raised our hands; everyone who raised their hands she gave a dum dum sucker to for us to hold out on our palm as if we were handing it to a child and depending on the spirits comfortablity with you they would supposedly pull on the the sucker. Some people claimed to feel movement, some didn't feel a thing but, I personally felt and watched this fucking sucker drag from the middle of my hand all the way off to the ground. Nice… sounds like fun!! Here's another fun story' “When I was a kid, the Stanley was just a pretty hotel with dumpy rooms (1970s canary yellow and olive drab. Borderline craphole). We never stayed there, it was just a place to get a good, cheap lunch. (Obviously, this was before the miniseries, when it was still cheap and not haunted). Anyway, I'd screw around and explore the hotel because hotels are fun to screw around in and explore. My brother, my sister, and myself were wandering the hotel after lunch, poking our heads into open rooms and whatnot. Well, we round the corner of the hallway and to our right is an small opening in the wall of the hall leading to a set of very narrow and steep circular stairs descending into pitch black darkness. None of us had the cojones to check it out. Wish we had, I never saw that staircase again.” 3rd floor “My ex-girlfriend and I went there around New Years a couple of years ago. I can confirm it is very haunted. On the 3rd floor, my ex turned white as a sheet after stopping in front of a particular door. I asked her what had happened, she said that something had ran their hand from her backside up to the nape of her neck. There was no one else around but us. When the docent got all of the tour members gathered around the door she had the experience at, she began to tell the group about an apparition that likes to grope pretty young ladies and run his hand from their back side up to their neck. Super Spooky!” Here's another! The ballroom, “It's absolutely beautiful- and haunted. My sister lived in Colorado for years so one winter we were visiting we decided to make the trip to Estes Park. Well being the rule breakers we are in my family, we ditched the official tour and took our own. We came across this big room with chairs covered in white cloth. We decided to “play ghost” and drape the cloths over ourselves, pretend to be ghosts, and take pictures. We, of course, thought we were hilarious. The ghosts decided to delete every picture we took in that room. All the pictures we took before and after were still on the camera, just the ones where we were playing ghost were deleted. Weird place!” Interesting! Here's a quick one from an investigator. “In a bathroom at the Stanley the shampoo bottle was thrown into the tub once when we were investigating 1302 once. I've had my voice recorder knocked over. As far as seeing anything with my own eyes or objects thrown at me, no. Not yet. I think it takes a lot of energy for spirits to manipulate our physical environment, so it's rare, but it does happen, yeah.” Well that's some crazy shit. Ok one more…. This is a retelling of a coyote of sisters doing a ghost hunt with numerous paranormal investigators from the Ghost Hunters tv show. "Our night started in Room 401. I have to admit: I was a bit nervous. I had never been on an investigation of this scale before. It didn't take long for things to start happening. Sitting patiently, my sister began to feel what she would later describe as "waves of rolling chills" that extended from her feet all the way up to her head, as well as the sensation that all of her hair was standing up on her head. Simultaneously, a fellow investigator's K-II meter (which measures electromagnetic frequency, or EMF) began to light up, denoting a change in the room's electromagnetic field. Paranormal or not, we were jacked, and the night was only beginning! Down the hall in Room 418, my sister and I had our first encounter with an Ovilus, or "ghost box" or "spirit box."At one point, the Ovilus said "Dawn" (my sister's name) as well as "dime," which was a word/image that a fellow investigator had agreed to use as a trigger word to communicate with her recently deceased mother. Soon we were out of the main hotel and into the balcony of the property's Music Hall. Once our group got settled in, we heard shuffling sounds from the stage and main floor. At one point, a mini Maglite flashlight, which was set up to turn on and off with an-ever-so-slight twist of its lamp head, turned on without assistance. This technique has been utilized on numerous episodes of "Ghost Hunters," yet continues to draw scrutiny from naysayers. Was a spirit in fact making contact, or was the battery simply completing the circuit and turning on the flashlight's beam? Who knows? I'm still not sure. But I've certainly never experienced a flashlight turning on by itself like that before. I chalked it up as another new experience in a weekend of new experiences. But what happened next had to be the climax of our weekend at the Stanley Hotel. As our group shifted down to the basement of the Music Hall, my sister and I decided to separate from the larger group to check out an interior room with a door that a spirit named Lucy liked to close, and had already closed, several times so far that evening – even with a heavy, upholstered chair propped in front of it. Dawn and I sat down with a handful of other investigators in the pitch-black room and began introducing ourselves to Lucy, asking her politely to shut the door if she was present. It wasn't long before she obliged. I was literally about four feet away from the doorway when, sure enough, the door began move away from the wall and toward the jamb, closing the door almost completely. Elated, we thanked Lucy for her efforts. Then we asked her to do it again, and after hearing rustling noises behind me and to my left, it happened again a second time. Upping the ante, we put a chair in front of the door to see if we could get it to happen with the chair blocking the door's path, to no avail. A few minutes later, the group decided to try to get the door to close again without the chair to block its path, like it had two times prior. Moving the chair myself, I pushed the door tightly against the wall to ensure the door wasn't leaning forward, building momentum and closing due to some mechanical issue such as a faulty hinge. But I couldn't make it start a closing motion without a deliberate effort. Clearly something had to be shutting this door, right? We asked Lucy a third time to please shut the door, and almost as if on command, the door began to shut again. About halfway between the completed motion, I yelled, "Slam it!" and that's exactly what happened. We experienced the door shutting a total of five times (a fourth time after asking Lucy to give us a sign she wanted us to leave, and the final time when the door closed behind us as we were leaving the room). Before long, we were off to famed room 217: the one that had King himself had stayed in, the one that had inspired King to write his book and the one that was the impetus for coming all this way in the first place. Purportedly haunted by an extremely tidy chambermaid, the host investigators purposely littered random items across the bathroom floor in hopes that Mrs. Wilson would tidy up during our time there. Interestingly, my sister heard something in the bathroom almost immediately upon turning the lights out. It turns out that a photo taken before the lights were turned out would show the items had indeed moved from their original locations. Coincidence? Could very well be. But hard to argue at the same time. As 1 a.m. came and the night's investigation ended, the activity continued, even into the next morning. Up at 6 a.m. to pack up, check out and make the drive back to the airport, I heard the distinct sound of female laughter. I immediately thought, who would be up at this hour, especially after a long night of investigating? Then something told me to check the closet, the bathroom closet. I really didn't want to look, but I did anyway. My heart skipped a beat when I saw a plastic access panel to the crawl space behind the closet removed, now laying precariously in front of the opening. A quick glance into the space revealed the customary plumbing and electrical works, but why the laughter? Was it children playing in the hall? Was it coming through the way from Room 401? What exactly caused the panel to become dislodged from the screw that was holding it in place anyway? The questions raced and the answers eluded. It really was anyone's guess, and considering where I was and the weekend I had just experienced, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Crazy stuff!!! What do you guys think about this place?

Les Brown and his twin brother were born on the floor of an abandoned building in Liberty City, a low-income section of Miami, Florida. Their birth mother, married at the time to a soldier stationed overseas, had become pregnant by another man and went to Miami secretly to give birth and three weeks later, she gave them away. He was adopted by Mamie Brown, a 38-year-old single woman who worked as a cafeteria attendant and domestic assistant. As a child, Brown was finding it impossible to concentrate and was labelled "educable mentally retarded" in the fifth grade which damaged his self-esteem and confidence. While in high school, Brown used to fantasize about being on stage speaking to thousands of people. After high school, Brown was firmly intent on becoming a DJ, he learned all he could about the workings of a radio station. One day, when a disc jockey became drunk on the air and Brown was the only other person at the station, he filled in at the microphone. Impressed, the owner of the station promoted Brown to part-time and then full-time disc jockey. In the late 1960s, Brown moved to Columbus, Ohio, where he had a top-rated radio program and was eventually given added duties as broadcast manager. This new level of influence inspired Brown to become more socially and politically conscious, urging his listeners to political action. After being terminated from the radio station, he ran for election in the Ohio House of Representatives and won. After leaving the Ohio State Legislature, he shifted his career to television and became a host on PBS. From September to Nov 1993, he hosted a talk show, The Les Brown Show.When he entered the motivational speaking arena in the mid-1980s, he had virtually nothing, having moved to Detroit with his clothes and just one tape of his motivational speeches. He rented an office that he shared with an attorney. Now, Les Brown is a highly sought-after resource in business and professional circles for Fortune 500 CEOs, small business owners, non-profit and community leaders from all sectors of society looking to expand opportunities. He energizes people to meet the challenges of the world around them. Hundreds of thousands are watching him on YouTube and tens of thousands interact with him regularly on Facebook. He has a keen way of turning what he touches into gold. Over 20 years ago, he won a Chicago-area Emmy® for his unsurpassed fundraising pledge drive for the Public Broadcasting System.
