What do you do without having to think about it? That is, what sort of behaviors, responses, habits, thoughts, or words flow naturally in and through your life without you having to consciously consider them? The way we answer that question leads us straight down into a foundational part of our humanity: our character. It's the thing we don't have to decide about because it's already formed within us. It's the identity that ignites the rest of who we are and how we live. Character is, as the Greek philosopher Heraclites once put it, our fate: the person we ultimately become, through the joys and griefs of our lives, always begins and ends with the forging of our inner beings. The scriptures, and Jesus Himself, have always articulated this to us, writing of a God who “looks on the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7) who writes the goodness of His law onto the hearts of His people (Jeremiah 31:33), and who proclaimed the message that one must become “born again” (John 3:3) and “transformed by the renewing of their minds” (Romans 12:1-3). In a world where it seems brokenness, evil, injustice, and pride rule, the scriptures remind us that the way forward is not more productive people, or more politically powerful people, but more deep people, shaped by the way and work of God. And we find one of the principal case studies for this truth in the book of 1 Samuel in our bibles, where we are presented with rich and complex characters from the story of Israel that are meant to create pause and reflection in our own lives on how we can become people of character today. Join us this Fall as we explore eleven central components to a life of character with God revealed to us through the vibrant stories of Hannah, Samuel, Saul, Jonathan, and David, and how these components can make us transformed people in a world desperately longing for leaders and people of character.

This will obviously give him a new set of values. Things which the world thought important, he will no longer worry about. Ambitions which dominated the world will be powerless to touch him. He will go on using the things of the world but he will use them in a new way. He will, for instance, set giving above getting, serving above ruling, forgiving above avenging. The Christian's standard of values will be God's not men's.” -William Barclay, "Commentary on Colossians" 11. “The first and most basic thing we can and must do is to keep God before our minds. This is the fundamental secret of caring for our souls. Our part in thus “practicing the presence of God” is to direct and redirect our minds constantly to Him. In the early time of our “practicing” we may well be challenged by our burdensome habits of dwelling on things less than God. But these are habits–not the law of gravity–and can be broken. A new, grace-filled habit will replace the former ones as we take intentional steps toward keeping God before us. Soon our minds will return to God as the needle of a compass constantly returns to the north. If God is the great longing of our souls, He will become the pole star of our inward beings.” -Dallas Willard, "The Great Omission: Reclaiming Jesus' Essential Teachings on Discipleship" 12. “The real problem of humanity is that we have stone-age emotions and brains, medieval institutions, and God-like technology.” -E.O.

America in Therapy Phyllis Leavitt All you have to do is turn the news on at night and you will receive a dose of hopelessness, despair and a feeling helplessness. It's all around us. All of the time. The country and the society that we once knew is gone. The goal of every generation prior to this one was to provide our children a better life than the one we had. To help them prepare for the future. To leave a legacy that will be a blessing to our posterity. I believe, and this is just Pastor Bob speaking here, but I believe this is going to be the first generation where we are leaving behind something nobody wants. This is the first generation where we are actually leaving things worse than what we had – and nobody seems to care. This is the first generation that is all about “me – right now” and not worried about tomorrow. Our guest today is writing a book titled, “America in Therapy.” And do we need therapy right now – and a lot of it. Amen! Phyllis Leavitt is the author of this book, “America in Therapy,” and she is here today to share insights about this book and to bring awareness of the urgency to bring our whole country into therapy. Amen! Phyllis has a Masters Degree in Psychology and Counseling and has been in private practice for more than 30 years. She has authored two books, “A Light in the Darkness” and “Into the Fire.” Help me welcome to the program, Phyllis Leavitt! Phyllis, it is such a blessing to have you join us today! First question I always start with is this. Other than that brief information I just shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Phyllis Leavitt?” You believe that we, as a nation, are on a collision course with our own extinction. Why do you believe that? So you are saying that we, as a nation, are suffering from psychological disfunction? What can be done to turn this situation around? We see a huge increase in violence across America. Shootings are happening every single day in our inner cities. On the news, here in Baltimore, every morning is a discussion of the four or five shootings that took place over night. Every single night. If there are no shootings on any particular night – THAT makes the headlines for the morning news. What can be done to turn the tide of violence that we see happening on an ever increasing level? Do you really believe there is hope for this nation to turn from this cycle of violence and “me-me-me” that seems to be rampant in our society? How will your book help us to do that? When will your book be released? How can someone obtain a copy of your book? Is there are pre-sale registration taking place? GO TO WEBSITE AND SIGN UP FOR THE NEWSLETTER TO BE NOTIFIED WHEN THE BOOK IS PUBLISHED Phyllis, this is so interesting. If someone has a question or would like to get more information, how can they get in touch with you? I'll put links to all of this in the show notes below. Folks, as...
Listen as Pastor Clint explores the practice of Sabbath, and how this ancient practice--woven into the very fabric of creation--serves as our cure for busyness. Sermon Resources: 1. “The eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing” -Ecclesiastes 1:8 2. “Desire alone, of acquiring goods and possessions for ourselves and our nearest friends, is insatiable, perpetual, universal.” -David Hume 3. “I can't get no satisfaction.” -Mick Jagger 5.

Swoboda, "Subversive Sabbath: The Surprising Power of Rest in a Nonstop World" 8. C.S. Lewis, "Mere Christianity" 10. “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it finds its rest in you.” -Augustine of Hippo, "Confessions" 11. John Walton, Commentary on Genesis 12. “In the relentless busyness of modern life, we have lost the rhythm between work and rest. All life requires a rhythm of rest. There is a rhythm in our waking activity and the body's need for sleep. There is a rhythm in the way day dissolves into night, and night into morning. There is a rhythm as the active growth of spring and summer is quieted by the necessary dormancy of fall and winter. There is a tidal rhythm, a deep, eternal conversation between the land and the great sea. In our bodies, the heart perceptibly rests after each life-giving beat; the lungs rest between the exhale and the inhale. We have lost this essential rhythm. Our culture invariably supposes that action and accomplishment are better than rest, that doing something--anything--is better than doing nothing. Because of our desire to succeed, to meet these ever-growing expectations, we do not rest. Because we do not rest, we lose our way. We miss the compass points that would show us where to go, we bypass the nourishment that would give us support. We miss the quiet that would give us wisdom. We miss the joy and love born of effortless delight. Poisoned by this hypnotic belief that good things come only through unceasing determination and tireless effort, we can never truly rest. And for want of rest, our lives are in danger.” -Wayne Muller, Sabbath: Finding Rest, "Renewal, and Delight In Our Busy Lives" 13.

He must go away from the screech of dissonant days, from the nervousness and fury of acquiring. He must say farewell to manual work and learn to understand that the world has already been created and will survive without the help of man. Six days a week we wrestle with the world, wringing profit from the earth; on the Sabbath we especially care for the seed of eternity planted in the soul. The world has our hands, but our soul belongs to Someone Else.” -Abraham Joshua Heschel, "Sabbath" 17. “Sabbath is not simply the pause that refreshes. It is the pause that transforms. Whereas Israelites are always tempted to acquiring, Sabbath is an invitation to receptivity, an acknowledgment that what is needed is given and need not be seized.” -Brueggemann, “Sabbath As Resistance: Saying No To The Culture of Now” 18. “If the devil can't make us bad, he'll make us busy.” -Corrie Ten Boom
Imagine growing up in an environment devoid of love, support, or even basic respect. Now, imagine the coping mechanisms one might develop in such an environment, only to find that these mechanisms are not beneficial in the long run. That's what we delve into with seasoned psychotherapist, Phyllis Leavitt. From tracing the roots of societal issues back to familial or community-based trauma, we dissect the impact of discrimination, abuse, and neglect on an individual and society at large. We highlight the urgent need for more psychological education to understand and navigate these dynamics, further discussing how these problems are mirrored on a broader scale, threatening societal stability.Are you aware of the two possible outcomes of an abusive upbringing - learned helplessness or identifying with the aggressor? Phyllis guides us through these dynamics and how they play out within our homes and society. We also touch on the overlooked gender dynamics and their societal impact. The conversation takes a deeper turn as we discuss the imbalance of power between men and women, the pendulum swing between genders, and the need for balanced role models.But it's not all doom and gloom. We explore the impact of small acts of kindness and love within a community. The role of generosity in healing communities is highlighted, along with the sense of belonging that can deter destructive behaviors. We then switch gears to discuss the long-term effects of emotional pain and discrimination, emphasizing the crucial role of love and care. Finally, Phyllis gives us a sneak peek into her upcoming book that aims to underscore the importance of kindness and respect in transforming situations and lives. Join us as we delve into these pressing societal issues from a fresh perspective.PHYLLIS Bio and linksI graduated from Antioch University with a Masters' Degree in Psychology and Counseling in 1989.

"We suffer from interior immigration." -Douglass Steere 9. “Busyness seems to be a determination not to ‘miss out on life.' Behind much of the rat race of modern life is the unexamined assumption that what I do determines who I am. In this way, we define ourselves by what we do, rather than by any quality of what we are inside. It is typical in a party for one stranger to approach another with the question, ‘What do you do?' Perhaps we wouldn't have a clue how to respond to the deeper question, ‘Who are you?'” -James Houston, "The Transforming Friendship: A Guide To Prayer" 10. “Strained by the very mad pace of our daily outer burdens, we are further strained by an inward uneasiness, because we have hints that there is a way of life vastly richer and deeper than all this hurried existence, a life of unhurried serenity and peace and power. If only we could slip over into that Center! If only we could find the Silence which is the source of sound!” That is, “If only we could deeply, fully, richly experience the life-giving presence of God.” -Thomas Kelly, "Testament of Devotion" 11. “I am so busy now that if I did not spend three hours each day in prayer, I could not get through the day.” -Martin Luther 12. “To pray is to descend with the mind into the heart, and there to stand before the face of the Lord, ever-present, all seeing, within you.” -Theophan the Recluse 13. “We think of solitude as a station where we can recharge our batteries, or as a corner of the boxing ring where our wounds are oiled, our muscles massaged, and our courage restored by fitting slogans. But that is not the solitude of John the Baptist, of Anthony or Benedict. For them solitude is not a private therapeutic place. Rather, it is the place of conversion, the place where the old self dies and the new self is born, the place where the emergence of the new man and the new woman occurs. Solitude is the furnace of transformation. Without solitude, we remain victims of our society and continue to be entangled in the illusion of the false self. Solitude is the place of the great struggle and the great encounter - the struggle against the compulsions of the false self and the encounter with the loving God who offers the substance of the true self.” -Henri Nouwen 14. “Silence is God's first language.” -John of the Cross 15. “The friend of silence draws near to God.” -John Climacus

My friend Edward Leavitt (mid-30's, from Southern Utah, RM, Recently Out) joins us to bravely share his story. Edward talks about growing up in Southern Utah (from Gunlock) and his journey to figure out his sexual orientation after not being able to make things work with a woman following his mission. Edwards talks about dark days filled with shame, self-harm, suicidal ideation, and hating himself. Edward talks about his relationship with his Heavenly Father and Jesus and how that allowed him to accept himself and conclude that his is loved and his life is worth living and “choosing to stay.” Edwards also talks about helping things along the way that have him hope and support. Edward bravely talks about finding out he is HIV positive and how that news led him to come out to his family (via a text he reads on the podcast) and his families support (including a text Edwards reads from his Dad on the podcast). It is a powerful family love story of coming together to love and support each other. Edward talks about how his family relationships are central to his happiness and hope for his future. Edward also talks about HIV and reducing the stigma around it and how we can have people in our lives that are HIV positive. I learned much about HIV listening to Edward. Edward concludes with his relationship with his Heavenly Father and Jesus—and how he is glad he is gay—and is hope for the future and peace for today. Thank you, Edward, for being on the podcast. You are brave. Your story gives perspective, hope and insights for others. You are a good man.

If most of us are being honest, we likely consider prayer to be a weak point in our spiritual lives. We find it hard to make time to pray; we find it unproductive in a world obsessed with hurry and productivity; we feel guilty for not praying often enough, and yet when we finally set aside the time to do so, we find ourselves distracted or confused, not sure how to proceed. Rather than serving as a life-giving connection to a redemptive, loving, and restorative God in the midst of a broken world, prayer becomes a chore or a bore or a guilt-riddled religious game. We often find ourselves, as Jesus' earliest disciples did, wondering how we can begin to pray. Join us as Midtown as we wade into the challenging waters of prayer, exploring the way that the Psalms teach us authentic, genuine prayer, and how their model can provide us structures for how we begin to relate to and know God more fully in our own lives today. Listen as Pastor Clint explores an inevitable experience in our spiritual journeys, but one we often don't give enough space to explore: it's the experience of doubt. Psalm 73 teaches us not only what this experience looks like, but how we can healthily navigate through it - doubting words to God become God's words to doubting people. Sermon Resources: 1. Skeptics Study - join here: https://www.midtownpres.org/skeptics-welcome 2. “I believe in Christ and confess him not like some child; my hosanna has passed through an enormous furnace of doubt.” -Fyodor Dostoyevsky 3. “We live in a culture that has, for centuries now, cultivated the idea that the skeptical person is always smarter than the one who believes. You can be almost as stupid as a cabbage, as long as you doubt.

Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” -Rainer Maria Rilke, “Letters To A Young Poet” 8. “I had motives for not wanting the world to have a meaning; and consequently assumed that it had none, and was able without any difficulty to find satisfying reasons for this assumption…For myself, as no doubt for most of my friends, the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation from a certain system of morality. We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom.” -Aldous Huxley, Ends and Means 9. “Yes, doubt will come, even to the one who follows Christ. But the only person who has a right to leap forward even with a doubt is someone whose life bears the marks of imitation, someone who by a decisive action at least tries to go so far out that becoming a Christian can still be a possibility. Everyone else must hold his tongue; he has no right to put in a word about Christianity; least of all against.” -Soren Kierkegaard 10.
