When David's son, Nick, was 7 years old, he was having struggles in school causing him to have self-doubt. One night, Nick asked, "Dad, Is there something wrong with me?" Before David laid him down to sleep, David told him, "You're the best 7-year-old boy in the whole wide world, and your daddy loves you." The next morning and every morning afterward before he went to work, David would go into Nick's room and repeat this phrase. Each year the number would go up by one, but the every morning tradition did not change. That is, that number did not change until January 2011 because that is when 13-year-old Nick died in an accident at home. Since 2011, the phrase has been the same - 'Nick, you are the best 13-year-old boy in the whole world, and your daddy loves you. Now, however, David does not go into David's room in the morning and kiss the top of his head as he says these familiar words. Instead, this is how he ends every post on his Facebook blog where David has documented his grief journey. It is also repeated throughout the book he wrote about Nick which is entitled, 'Forever 13' available here on Amazon. My favorite image from David's book is not that little phrase, however. It is the image of a 'bean counter' in heaven. The bean counter is there putting a bean in a jar each day that our child is in heaven. Initially, that image bothered me. I kept thinking of Andy's jar filling up after days, months, and years, but then David says that this same bean counter has another jar with our names on it. In this jar, a bean is removed each day. Each bean represents the number of days until we will join our children in heaven and each day, our jar has one fewer bean. I love the idea that as Andy's jar fills, mine is being emptied. The number of days between Andy's death and mine has been known by God since long before Andy died. That number has never and will never change. The only thing that changes is which jar the beans are in. One day, when my jar is empty, I will see Andy again and be able to say to him, "Andy, you are the best 14-year-old boy in the whole world, and your mommy loves you."
Chapter 24 takes place on the 10 of Tevet - the day that the Babylonians besiege Jerusalem. 1. Ezekiel prophesizes about the "pot and the meat" and warns the people that Jerusalem will not protect or defend them; instead they will be stewed inside the city as the siege begins to bite. 2. Yechezkel's own wife dies and the prophet is instructed to refrain from mourning rituals. This represents the fact that people will not have the luxury of mourning loved-ones once the Hurban arrives. There is no time to mourn in the panic and pandemonium of the national collapse.

This Thursday marks Thanksgiving in the United States, a festival so deeply rooted in American tradition that it's more widely celebrated than Christmas. Thanksgiving commemorates the convivial sharing of a meal between the first English pilgrims to land on the shores of present-day Massachusetts in 1620 and the Wampanoag tribe, the local inhabitants. That's the story taught in school, but for the Native Americans, Thanksgiving is in fact a day of mourning. Our correspondents Fanny Allard and Fraser Jackson report.
Listen to the Thurs. Nov. 23, 2023 special edition of the Pan-African Journal: Worldwide Radio Broadcast hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. This episode features our PANW report with dispatches on the release of videos by opposition forces in Palestine which challenge the corporate media narratives; the White House says there is no genocide taking place in Gaza; there are alternative assessments of the politico-military situation in Gaza and the West Bank; and in Gaza there are continuing massacres on a daily basis. In the second hour we look at the Day of Mourning with a focus on the African-Indian alliance in the southeast region in a war against burgeoning imperialism during the early and mid-19th century.

Mourning for Saul- God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. David could have rejoiced when he heard of Saul's death, but instead he mourned the loss of Israel's king. Bitterness, hatred, and forgiveness are a choice. They aren't imposed on us.
‘What are you doing for Thanksgiving this year?' This is a question that I have been asked dozens, if not a couple hundred times over the past month. They want to know if we are traveling. They want to know if we are hosting for Thanksgiving. They want to tell me their Thanksgiving plans. It is simply polite conversation during the month of November. What's interesting for me is that no one in my life has thought to ask me, “How are you doing this Thanksgiving?” No one has asked how we might be honoring Andy. No one seems to have thought at all about the empty seat at our table and the fact that Thanksgiving might, in fact, still be a hard day for us, even five years after Andy's death. Certainly, no one is trying to be insensitive at all. I just don't think it dawns on them, but, the fact is, Thanksgiving is still hard when you are in the midst of grief. Looking at that empty chair today will bring moments of sadness. This week's podcast is a discussion of what it feels like to gather and give thanks during grief. We asked for insights from listeners and we got them! We got true honest answers about feeling thankful and NOT feeling thankful. We got answers about what we might be dreading as well as who we are turning to in order to help us get through this day and others like it. So what is the answer to that unasked question? ‘How am I this Thanksgiving?' The answer - I don't know yet. Will I be 99% grateful and happy today or will I be 99% miserable? Probably the answer will lie somewhere in the middle. Honestly, the less the miserable aspect is acknowledged, the more miserable I am likely to be. So where does this leave us as we go through this Thanksgiving Day and the next month of the Christmas season? These are answers I know. 1. Acknowledge that it can be hard, but enjoy the moments that bring joy whether 1% or 99%. 2. Acknowledge the empty seat at the table while trying to appreciate the chairs that are full. 3.Allow yourself to feel the whole spectrum of emotions, because only then can healing begin.

How can a relationship with one animal open the door to the depths of humanity? In this episode, returning guest Kurt Russo shares how he came to see the world through Tokitae, a Southern Resident Orca held captive in the Miami Seaquarium for decades. As he mourns Tokitae's recent death, Kurt reflects on the ways nature gives us signs of the greater mysteries of life. This conversation is equally rooted in the material realities of protecting the Salish Sea, the Snake River, and the more-than-human kin that call those places home, and the spiritual questions that cruelty and disregard for the more-than-human provoke. How has humanity gotten to such a point? Kurt shares guided wisdom about the realities of commodification, ecocide, and the capacity of the human soul for intentional cruelty. How we fight against such darkness matters not just for humanity, but for all with whom we share this precious earth. Kurt Russo is currently the Executive Director of the Indigenous-led nonprofit, Se'Si'Le, that is dedicated to the application of ancestral knowledge to reimagine our relationship to the nature of nature. He worked for the Lummi Nation from 1978-2020 in the area of sacred sites and treaty rights. He also served as Executive Director of the Native American Lands Conservancy in California from 1998-2016 and was Senior Advisor to the Kumeyaay-Digueno Land Conservancy of southern California. He was the co-founder and Executive Director of the Florence R. Kluckhohn Center for the Study of Values from 1987-2002. He has a BS and MS in Forestry and a PhD in History. He has worked abroad with Indigenous communities in their efforts to preserve their ancestral lands and knowledge in Mexico, Guatemala, Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, and Chile.For an extended version of this episode, join us at patreon.com/forthewildMusic by Francesca Heart and Julius Smack.

Many of us have heard the history of Thanksgiving in America in the classroom, but schools don't teach the true history of Thanksgiving from the perspective of Native American tribes like the Wampanoags or the Narragansetts. Until the history of Indigenous people of America is taught in schools, Native Americans today will always be misrepresented and underserved by the government and society. It's imperative that we academically recognize the historical relationships between colonists and Indigenous people and how that has shaped our modern society. Happy Thanksgiving and we also stand with our fellow Americans on this National Day of Mourning. #america #usa #indigenous #pilgrims The History of Thanksgiving (00:33), King Philip's War (05:24), Mythical Thanksgiving Feast (18:12), The Thanksgiving Lie (24:37), Pilgrims as Nationalists (27:22), Origin of Thanksgiving in School (30:55), Teach Native American History (34:55), Raised By USA Propaganda (38:38)
Prof. Silverman describes the first Thanksgiving: an accidental feast between frenemies that was never repeated. How much is our Thanksgiving tradition based on real events that transpired sometime in the fall of 1621 in Plymouth, Massachusetts? And why does it matter anyway? Don't all nations have feel-good traditions that are partly based on facts, but mostly predicated on myths? Professor David Silverman answers these questions and more. For example, he shares with us that Europeans had been in contact with the Wampanoag Native Americans, who are the "Indians" of our Thanksgiving tradition, since at least 1524. And that the Pilgrims were guided to Plymouth by at least one crew member who touted its advantage - hint: all its native inhabitants had died of disease, leaving houses and fields empty and available for the would-be English settlers. And while the turkey was certainly on the menu, so was eel! In this episode, Professor Silvermans explains the aftermath of that first Thanksgiving. And by way of follow-up, I ask him to explain why it is that some Native Americans observe a Day of Mourning on Thanksgiving. Professor Silverman is the author of This Land is Their Land: The Wampanoag Indians, Plymouth Colony, and the Troubled History of Thanksgiving, a 2019 book.

This Week's EpisodePart of living in a broken world means that sometimes things are broken just because. But even knowing that, seasons of loss, grief, and pain can devastate us and leave us wrestling with the "why" and "what if" questions that don't necessarily have answers.

Flipped “Flipped Response” Luke 6:21b, 25b Jesus wants to flip our hearts to value what God values. When we value what God values, it flips how we respond to the world around us. How can there be blessing in weeping as a response to the world around us? Weeping is an appropriate part of living in a broken Mourning is an expression of sorrow and grief that communicates that things are not as they should be. Laughter allows us to escape the tension that is caused by all that's gone wrong. The worst thing we can do is to live as though a real problem doesn't exist. We are invited to weep because we are commanded to love. Application: Am I quick to mourn over sin and its effects in my life and in the world? Or, am I chasing after temporary safety or happiness that distracts me from my need for Jesus? God comforts those who are broken over the brokenness of the world. The present blessing is God's solidarity: God is close to the broken hearted. The blessing is grounded in God's solution: God will put an end to sin and death. Take Home Truth: There's blessing in weeping when brokenness drives us to the One who will make things whole again. LifeGroup Questions: Applying the Teaching to Our Lives Icebreaker: Are you a movie crier? If yes, what is the last movie that made you cry? Looking back over your notes, what is one thing that stuck out to you from the sermon? Why did that stick out? What was your initial reaction to Jesus saying “Blessed are you who weep now”? What does it mean that “Death is the most unnatural thing in the world?” Do you agree or disagree? What are some common ways that people escape the brokenness of the world? Why is this so common in our society? What do you usually do when you get a piece of bad news, or hear about something terrible happening in the world? Then, ask yourself: Does it look more like leaning into the brokenness of the world, or like trying to escape the discomfort? Read Romans 12:5-9. What does it practically mean to “mourn with those who mourn”? In your own words, why is it better to allow your heart to be broken by the sin that breaks God's heart? If you were honest, are you quick to mourn over sin and its effects in your life? Or is there sin and brokenness in your life or in the world that you've begun to accept as the norm?
Flipped “From grief to glory” The blessing hidden in our mourning. Luke 6:21b and 25b NOTES: LifeGroup Questions: Applying the Teaching to Our Lives What is the time you wept the most in your life? If possible, describe how you immediately felt. What, if any, joy or comfort did God bring from that situation? How has your experience of hurt and suffering helped you connect and love others? In what way(s) are you tempted to avoid pain/run toward pleasure in your life? How has this effected your relationship with Jesus and others? How, as followers of Jesus, do we balance the sorrow we feel over sin and suffering with a reality that we are to live in joy and peace? Can you share an example from your experience? Is there anyone/anything Jesus is calling you to weep over in your life? *Conclude by reading Hebrews 5:7-9. Take time to pray for one another. CHRISTlike characteristic: Relates with Other Centered Love/Loving People
On Saturday November 23rd, 1963, with the country in a state of shock and mourning, Music Director Erich Leinsdorf led the Boston Symphony orchestra in the compositions of Gluck, Wagner, and Beethoven. John Kennedy was the grandchild of former famous Boston mayor John “Honey Fitz” Fitzgerald. The concert was given at Symphony Hall in honor of the slain son of Boston. Elsewhere, numerous famous people gave statements on the assassination. The next morning, Sunday November 24th, despite being surrounded by a crowd of police officers at the Dallas Police headquarters, Lee Harvey Oswald was shot and mortally wounded by nightclub owner Jack Ruby on live TV while being transported to the Dallas County jail. Ruby shot Oswald in the abdomen, at point blank range, with a .38 caliber revolver. The shooting took place at 11:21 a.m. local time. Oswald was taken into surgery at Parkland Memorial Hospital. He died at 1:07 p.m., never to face trial. That Sunday, thousands of people around the world went to Sunday mass in memory of the fallen President. Later an LP called That Day With God was produced with excerpts from several of these inspirational expressions. It included Pope Paul VI, The Archbishop of Canterbury and Richard Cardinal Cushing. I'll let Henry Fonda read the last one.

The English writer and Anglican cleric John Donne is considered now to be the preeminent metaphysical poet of his time. He was born in 1572 to Roman Catholic parents, when practicing that religion was illegal in England. His work is distinguished by its emotional and sonic intensity and its capacity to plumb the paradoxes of faith, human and divine love, and the possibility of salvation. Donne often employs conceits, or extended metaphors, to yoke together “heterogenous ideas,” in the words of Samuel Johnson, thus generating the powerful ambiguity for which his work is famous. After a resurgence in his popularity in the early 20th century, Donne's standing as a great English poet, and one of the greatest writers of English prose, is now assured.-bio via Poetry Foundation Get full access to The Daily Poem Podcast at dailypoempod.substack.com/subscribe
Some of my favorite interviews are ones where the child whose story we tell reminds me of my Andy. I tend to get a little more emotional during those interviews because I am reminded of stories in my own past. I feel a special connection to these mothers as I see a little of myself in them. This is one of those special interviews, and Jackie is one of those moms who I feel like I already have a deep connection with despite having only an hour long Zoom conversation. Dane, like Andy, was a kid who felt big emotions. He could get anxious easily, but would get excited over seemingly little events in life. He was a great friend to other kids and loved spending time with his family, especially Jackie, who he often called 'the best mom ever' (although I did tell her that Andy and Dane would likely argue about who had the best mom). Jackie told stories of how the two of them would go to a Red Box machine and leave a bag of microwave popcorn and money for a movie. Dane would beg his mom to wait in the parking lot to see if if the next customer 'got excited' when finding their surprise. After Dane was suddenly killed at the age of 11 while on a snowmobiling trip with his Dad, many people remembered Dane's sweet loving spirit. More than one person said that everyone should learn to 'live like Dane.' The phrase struck a cord with Dane's family and they started a 'Live like Dane' Facebook group. The family even made little cards with Dane's picture and a QR code linking to the Facebook page. The card reads, 'This random act of kindness was done in honor of Dane McCoy. No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. Please help continue his legacy by paying it forward.' People are then encouraged to share their random acts of kindness stories on Facebook. I love this idea. I love that Dane can be remembered in this way by people he never even met. Today, I urge all of us to 'Live like Dane' by surprising a friend, or even a stranger, with a random act of kindness. I can picture Andy and Dane together looking down from heaven, getting 'so excited' as someone discovers their unexpected gift.
