On the occasion of the 245th anniversary of the Revolutionary War in New York City, we revisit the story of the Great Fire of 1776, the drumbeat of war leading up to the disaster, and the tragic story of the American patriot Nathan Hale. This is a reedited, remastered version of an episode that we recorded in 2015. A little after midnight on September 21, 1776, the Fighting Cocks Tavern on Whitehall Street caught on fire. The drunken revelers inside the tavern were unable to stop the blaze, and it soon raged into a dangerous inferno, spreading up the west side of Manhattan. Some reports state that the fire started accidentally in the tavern fireplace. But was it actually set on purpose -- on the orders of George Washington? Meanwhile, underneath this sinister story is another, smaller drama -- that of a young man on a spy mission, sent by Washington into enemy territory. His name was Nathan Hale, and his fate would intersect with the disastrous events of that perilous night. PLUS: The legacy of St. Paul's Chapel, a lasting reminder not only of the Great Fire of 1776 but of an even greater disaster which occurred almost exactly 225 years later. boweryboyshistory.com If you like the show, please rate and review on Apple Podcasts.

“I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.” The last words of Nathan Hale, an American patriot sent to spy on New York by George Washington, but captured by the British and hanged. George Washington was hit hard and resolved never to use amateurs to do his spying for him again. Instead, he set up the United States' first professional spy network - the Culper Ring. They saved the critical fort at West Point, uncovered the treachery of Benedict Arnold, saved the newly arrived French under Rochambeau, the new American economy and George Washington himself. I think, they saved the Revolution, and the new United States with it.   Subscribe to us here on your favourite podcast channel, visit us at www.bitesizebattles.com, and follow us on Instagram and Facebook @bitesizebattles.

This story was first published in the Atlantic Monthly in 1859 and brought the American author immediate attention and praise. The son of Nathan Hale, the so-called inventor of the newspaper editorial, Edward Hale possessed strong literary skills from a young age and entered Harvard College when he was only 13 years old.

Nathan Hale is so fun to listen too. His passion and enthusiasm for life, his wife, his kids, God, The Savior Jesus Christ, and just overall believing that life is awesome are absolutely contagious! I could hardly keep up with his pace and excitement in sharing how God showed up for him when he desperately prayed and cried out for help. As a young boy, Nate's Parents divorced which was very hard on him, he stopped engaging in school resulting in poor grades, and became involved with friends that chose to find their freedom, independence, and a release from the pressure of life through partying, drinking and drugs. After years of partying, run in's with the law, and as a full blown Alcoholic and Drug addict, Nate had become so reliant on drugs each day that he began stealing checks from his Fathers Dental practice and cashing them in large amounts. When Nate's father discovered what was happening Nate thought his father would turn him in to the police and that his life would be over, and as he was frantically getting his belongings together to make a dash for Mexico, his Father showed up at his house unexpectedly. Nate shares the incredible way that his Father showed up for him at this time. Nate thought for sure his Dad was coming in absolute anger, but instead, like the Father of the Prodigal Son with tear filled eyes, his Dad asked Nate to stop, rest, slow down, and come home. Unconditional parenting is incredible and you can sense the love and respect Nate has for his Father as he shares this part of the story. Even after this touching and love filled experience of forgiveness Nate had just experienced, Nate's addiction didn't just disappear. It takes a lot of effort to become an Alcoholic/Drug Addict, and it takes a lot of work to get out of it. It wasn't until he called a friend in an attempt to go to a club that the unexpected happened and Nate became willing to slow down and look for light in his life. His friend, also a drug addict, turned Nate's offer down until after his meeting with two Missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Reluctantly, Nate went to his buddies house with the sole purpose of getting to the club after his friend was done. When Nate arrived the Missionaries began teaching and Nate explains that it was almost as if he and one of the missionaries were in a different place, and he felt like he had known this missionary for a lot longer than his years on earth. Although this is the religion Nate's parents belonged too and he was surrounded by throughout his life, he didn't want anything to do with God or religion at the time because it interfered with his lifestyle; However, that all changed when Nate's heart was truly opened up because of the spirit that he felt as the missionaries taught about Jesus Christ.  Things started to change for Nate. His heart started to soften towards God, and the idea that there was something very special about the message the Missionaries shared. He began trying to engage, and at first it was difficult and awkward, but he continued to try. During this time he had a miracle happen as he prayed to God, trying to find out if God is real. Like a flood of light ideas and thoughts began pouring into Nate's mind and Nate knew that these thoughts and personal revelations were coming to him directly from God. His life has done a 180 degree turn since. He is an incredibly inspiring and good man and is now giving back in efforts to help those who find themselves in dark places trying to find Light. Nate, thank you for taking time to come share your message with me and the audience. You are an incredible man that has overcome some huge trials in your life. Continue to use your story of redemption to point others to Jesus Christ. God bless you and your family my brother. A compelling article was written about Nate's Story in 2018. If you would like to read it here is the web address: https://www.storiesofgodsgrace.com/site/2018/4/2/nates-story-cpr-for-the-soul   This is an excerpt from Nate's Story, and you will hear him share it in this Episode. But this was incredible. It was powerful. The Spirit was speaking to me. The young missionary told me, “You are going to change. You're going to influence thousands of people. You're going to do great things — I can see it.” He prophesied my life. The room seemed to glow. I wondered if I was tripping on LSD or something because it was so potent. I wondered, “What kind of drug is this? This light and this hope…” It's like I had been in a dark cave, and somebody ripped the top of the cave, and all this light came pouring down on me. It was a beautiful feeling that went clear through me. I knew what he was saying was true. The Spirit was burning through the room so strongly. The missionary said, “Can you feel that? That's the Spirit!” Caught up in the overwhelming transformation taking place, he stood up and shouted, “I have never felt it this strong! Wahooooo!” Something in me changed at that moment. I was still addicted to drugs, but my heart started beating again. The missionary told me, “I want you to go to church, even if you're sedated.” I told him, “I can't do that. It's rude to go to church while I'm high.” He disagreed strongly. So I made a commitment that I would keep going to church with my dad on Sundays. There were times when I'd walk into church, even though I had just popped a bunch of pills. I was like, “I'm here. I'm barely here, but I'm here. I'm sorry I'm wasted. I'm sorry I'm high, but I'm here, and I'm going to continue on this pattern. I am going to turn my life around.”   To listen to this Episode, you can find 'Come Towards Delight' the Podcast on any podcast platform or click the link below. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/come-towards-delight/id1514528066   BkFpSeUOS2TBPqikluJB

Dawgman.com’s Kim Grinolds spoke Wednesday with the Head of Hoops - Aaron Beach - about all the comings and goings that have happened with the Washington Men’s Basketball team the last six weeks, including a number of verbal commitments and two new coaching signings. They first talk about new assistant coaches Wyking Jones and Quincy Pondexter and how their west coast ties will certainly begin to pay dividends when it comes to upgrading the talent on the roster. Jones is the one who has the coaching chops, having been an assistant under such coaches as Paul Westphal, Steve Alford, and Rick Pitino. Pondexter is going to use his story as a Washington alum, pro player, and recent AAU coach to become a monster recruiter while he learns how to be a Division-1 coach under Mike Hopkins, Will Conroy, and Jones. Next, Grinolds and Beach break down the recent Washington verbal commits, and there have been a lot of them. They started with the most recent one, former Stanford guard Daejon Davis, and why they feel like what Davis brings is the perfect fit for what the Huskies need right now. Then they also talk about the other local guys that have returned home, Emmitt Matthews, Jr. and Terrell Brown, and how they’ll use their experiences at other programs to bring much-needed traits to Montlake, including a commitment to playing defense. Davis and Brown are actual cousins, and Grinolds and Beach talk about that relationship and how that will also play with the current group of Hoop Dawgs that have stayed from last year. Next, they talk about the surprise commitment of former Alabama power forward Langston Wilson, the No. 1 juco PF in the country, and how he’ll compliment Nate Roberts and freshman Jackson Grant along the back line of the zone, as well as similarities to another recent UW forward. After that, they talk about some other pieces that are out there that Washington could finish their 2021 recruiting class with, including former Nathan Hale, Garfield, and Findlay Prep star P.J. Fuller, who has been playing at TCU, and UTEP’s Bryson Williams. To finish off the podcast, Grinolds and Beach project out the 2021 starting roster and how the new faces will fit in with who is already at Montlake. Do they think one or two of them will turn out to be the main scoring threats, or will it be more of a scoring-by-committee approach? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Revolution 2.0

Introduction In the 1988 movie, “Stand and Deliver”, Jaime Escalante is a mathematics teacher in a school in a Hispanic neighbourhood. Convinced that his students have potential, he persuades them, including gang members and no-hopers in an overall underperforming school, that they could take and pass the rigorous Advanced Placement exam in calculus.  Mr. Escalante, played by Edward James Olmos in this true story, convinced his students there should be more for them than the usual life for poor minorities in East LA. There is more for us than just being well informed and regular voters. We, too, must Stand and Deliver. The Silent Majority cannot stay silent any longer, or it will no longer be the majority. That is the subject of today’s 10-minute episode.  Continuing In an episode on voting, commenting on America’s unqualified voters, I made the point that I am not a supporter of get-out-the-vote campaigns. I am strongly in favor of getting out the well researched, well informed vote. In today’s episode, I am taking that thought process an important step forward. Even well informed and regular voting is not enough. We must act. Speak our minds. Let others know where we stand. And do it clearly and often. “But Will, my work environment is hostile to my views; I don’t want to lose my job.” I get that. Even before the new century, before we moved back to Colorado, my wife was afraid to share her thoughts about party affiliation for fear of a negative reaction from her employer, a multinational business. “They would not fire me directly for my politics, but they’d find a way.” We are in the middle of a huge upheaval in the US, a cultural revolution that is well underway. Don’t for a second underestimate what is going on; we are in a tug-of-war for our country that is no less important, no less consequential, than the one in 1776. It is clear to all of us now what needed to be done back then, but it was not at all clear to everyone at the time what was at stake, and which side to choose. In round numbers, about half of the 2.5M people in the colonies in 1776 were pro-British, and the other half pro-Revolution. And no doubt many who were leaning one way or the other were not all that invested in their choice. About 3% of the country, 75,000 people, actively supported the fight to free the colonies from the British. “Really, Will, how could such a small percentage get anything done, much less defeat the British Empire, the greatest economic and military power the world had ever seen?”  "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead, Cultural Anthropologist. Three percent of our current population is 10M people. There is nothing on earth that 10M citizens cannot do. Let’s listen to some of the Revolutionary America’s 3%: "These are the times that try men's souls." Thomas Paine, The American Crisis, December 1776. Exactly, Mr. Paine. And here we are again.  "I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"-Patrick Henry, speech in the Virginia Convention, 1775. No one is asking that we make that stark choice, but devoting a part of our lives to liberty, to “...life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” is well within everyone's grasp. "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country." Nathan Hale, before being hanged by the British, September 1776 We are not being called to die for our country, but we are called to live for it. "Men, you are all marksmen - don't one of you fire until you see the whites of their eyes. Then fire low!" Israel Putnam, repeated by Colonel Prescott to the men, June 1775 at Bunker Hill. Unlike the early revolutionaries, we are not low on ammunition, we are not low on ideas and convictions, and we don’t have to wait until the opposition is physically upon us. BTW,

True Fact: The longest book written in the English language is the easy book One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss. Other True Fact: That first fact is untrue, but it's certainly what Kate believed in her heart when she finished reading that book during this recording. While many people remember all too well the title of today's book, its plot (such as it is) remains, for many, a mystery. Kate certainly didn't know what to expect and, to be fair, how could she have? Can anyone truly predict Clark or the Ying or Ned? Sweet sweet Ned? We think not. Show Notes: One image in this book was once parodied when Betsy made a post challenging artists to Re-Seussify Seuss. Which is to say, re-illustrate a Dr. Seuss work in the style of another illustrator. And Nathan Hale (of Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales) decided to take on "yellow teeth guy" (as Kate calls him) in the style of Stephen Gammell. You know. The fellow who illustrated Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. And the result is beautiful.

Spycraft was seen as a treacherous craft, but it was necessary to win a war. Washington knew this, as his early attempts to gather intelligence on British-occupied New York led to an execution of Nathan Hale, a young school teacher. More sophisticated networks developed, particularly the Culper Spy ring, which involved a farmer, a whaleboat captain, a tavern owner, and a slave.

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 69 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House.  This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes, or so, we are going to be talking about … well, it's hard to put it into words. You know, you don't hear it as much anymore as you did before, but you guys remember the YOLO craze, right?  It hit the internet in 2012 and proliferated into everyday life with the acronym showing up on merchandise in Walgreens and Macy's.  Wikipedia compares it to Latin phrases like carpe diem, which means “seize the day,” and momento mori, which directly translated is “remember to die,” but in common usage would be understood to be something along the lines of “remember that you have to die.”  If you ask me, YOLO is basically the millennial “hold my beer” invoked when you're going to do something you know is stupid. However, in this episode, we are going to take this idea of only living once and examine it from a more enlightened and Biblical perspective (yep, that sounded just as pretentious as I thought it would).  In the last episode, we talked about the issue of storing up things here on Earth instead of storing up treasure in Heaven.  Basically, taking your eyes off of eternity, worshipping self as an idol instead of worshipping God.  The idea there being to not focus on the temporary things of this Earth and focus on God and eternity.  And physically this is true, but spiritually we have to recognize that we only have this one life to affect change and inspire life in those within our spheres of influence. In the American Revolutionary War, there was a gentleman by the name of Nathan Hale who was executed by British Soldiers for being a spy.  Before they hung him, his recorded last words were, “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.”  His allegiance is admirable and this sentiment of a longing to give your life for something bigger than yourself is one that everyone can relate to at some point in their life.  In Philippians 2:17 CSB Paul put it this way, “[17] Even if I am poured out as a drink offering on the sacrificial service of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you.” When the Jews read this phrase, it would have conjured up images of the blood of a sacrifice being poured at the foot of the altar in offering to The Lord.  However, Paul's ministry wasn't to the Jews, but to Gentiles and converts to The Way.  So, in this context, a “drink offering” is exactly what it sounds like.  The modern practice of pouring one out for a fallen brother when drinking a toast isn't as modern as it sounds.  This is what Paul is saying he is willing to do with his life if it means bolstering the faith of fellow believers and furthering the cause of the Gospel.  He says, even if I must relegate myself to an empty chair at your gatherings, so you can grow in your faith and spread the Gospel… Then bring it on!  Paul had fully embraced carpe diem, his bio on his social media read momento mori, he had become the CEO of YOLO. I've talked to so many that are serving The Lord with everything in them.  Their volunteering at weekend services at their church, when they get a paycheck-they're paying their tithe, they've gone on missions' trips, volunteered at food pantries, even devoted themselves to religious studies or gone to seminary.  We have to be careful, though, to bear in mind why we're doing what we do.  In Philippians 3:7-9 CSB Paul says, “[7] But everything that was a gain to me, I have considered to be a loss because of Christ. [8] More than that, I also consider everything to be a loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. Because of him I have suffered the loss of all things and consider them as dung, so that I may gain Christ [9] and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own from the law, but one that is through faith in Christ—the righteousness from God based on faith.” Paul had studied the scriptures from a young age, volunteered countless hours in the temple, gone on pilgrimages to spread the law to the furthest reaches of the known world.  He had become a man of great stature before he had the revelation that everything he had done “for God” was done in honor of himself.  Everything he had done was to prove his worth to God and man.  He goes so far as calling his work dung when compared to knowing Christ and the work of Christ.  This statement in verse 8 of Philippians 3 would have shook any first-century church reader.  You don't understand what Paul is saying.  The word Paul chooses here, translated as dung, it's only used one time in all of scripture, and there's a good reason for that.  The word in the Greek is: G4657 σκύβαλον skubalon skoo'-bal-on Neuter of a presumed derivative of G1519 and G2965 and G906; what is thrown to the dogs, that is, refuse (ordure): - dung. Except, that's a very clean and polished definition.  The reason this word is only used once in all of scripture is because it's an invective, an expletive, a cuss, a swear, it is foul language.  The kind of word you hope your momma doesn't find out that you use.  The closest modern word we have in English to equate with this word is from the acronym Stow High In Transit.  S.H.I.T.  Knowing what Paul is really saying, you can almost feel his disgust, almost taste the bile in his mouth as he recalls the show he's put on elevating himself instead of Christ.  I count it all as dung (I'm not going to use the actual word). You Only Live Once, and then you face judgment and eternity.  Do you want to stand at the judgment, Christ at your side, with crap in your hands to offer your savior?  Do you want only dung to throw at the feet of The King of Kings, and The Lord of Lords?  What's a believer to do then? Paul goes on in Philippians 3:10 CSB, to say, “[10] My goal is to know him and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of his sufferings, being conformed to his death,”  YOLO in pursuit of knowing Christ and the power of his resurrection.  Carpe diem without fear of living in fellowship with the sufferings of Christ.  Momento mori in dying to self.  All in the hope that on the day that The Lord returns as Paul puts it in verse 11 of Philippians 3, we will somehow reach the resurrection from among the dead. This is Pastor Bill saying, “Until next time…”
