This morning we discuss the ongoing dilemma in Jewish life between tradition vs. innovation. We present Rabbi Norman Lamm's insight into the requirement in our Parsha that each year the Kohein Gadol on Yom Kippur must wear new garments. This becomes the paradigm for a dual approach to all Jewish life - maintaining traditional practice, but filled and energized by new and creative understanding, expression, and meaning. "Only renewal can guarantee life." Michael Whitman is the senior rabbi of ADATH Congregation in Hampstead, Quebec, and an adjunct professor at McGill University Faculty of Law. ADATH is a modern orthodox synagogue community in suburban Montreal, providing Judaism for the next generation. We take great pleasure in welcoming everyone with a warm smile, while sharing inspiration through prayer, study, and friendship. Rabbi Whitman shares his thoughts and inspirations through online lectures and shiurim, which are available on: YouTube: https://tinyurl.com/adathyoutube Instagram: #adathmichael Podcast - Mining the Riches of the Parsha: Apple Podcasts - https://tinyurl.com/miningtheriches1 Spotify: https://tinyurl.com/miningtheriches3Stitcher: https://tinyurl.com/miningtheriches4 Please contact Rabbi Whitman (email@example.com) with any questions, or to receive a daily email, "Study with Rabbi Whitman Today," with current and past insights for that day, video, and audio, all in one short email sent directly to your inbox.

GUEST HOST: David Menzies You know, the other day, I was thinking about the Hans Christian Andersen fable, The Emperor's New Clothes. And it made me ponder how much the world has changed since that tale was penned back in 1837. In fact, it also made me ponder if this fable could be published today. And if it was published, would it be condemned as hate speech by the usual suspects? GUEST: Bryan Leib
This week, we have another short story, a fable from master of fairy tales, Hans Christian Andersen. 'The Emperor's New Clothes' has become synonymous with something that isn't as good as people are claiming it to be, and it is no doubt Andersen's Tale which led this phrase to enter popular consciousness. The story itself predates Andersen and can be traced to the 14th century, but Andersen put his own spin on it, based on his own experience of seeing King Frederick VI as a child.If you'd like to support The Well Told Tale, please visit us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/thewelltoldtaleBooks - (buying books from our Bookshop.org shop helps support this channel while also supporting local bookshops, at no cost to you): Books by our favourite authors - https://uk.bookshop.org/lists/the-well-told-taleThe Emperor's New Clothes - https://uk.bookshop.org/a/9522/9781474924603Hans Christian Andersen's Complete Fairy Tales - https://uk.bookshop.org/a/9522/9781626860995An Illustrated Treasury of Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales - https://uk.bookshop.org/a/9522/9781782501183 I would like to thank my patrons: Toni A, Joshua Clark, Maura Lee, Jane, John Bowles, Glen Thrasher, Ruairi, Cade Norman, and Silja Tanner.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/thewelltoldtale)
Like it or not, we are all veterans now in the war on reality. Rajan Laad offers some very timely examples of how the media is attempting to capture our minds. The issue of transexual individuals in women's sports is a modern version of The Emperor's New Clothes. It's also a example of how those who refuse to recite things they know are false are being targeted. The Hunter Biden laptop story should be a much bigger deal. Not because of the salaciousness of the images on his laptop but because of what it reveals about the deceptive nature of the American press. You'd have to trying pretty hard not to notice the sinister shift in how public health has melded with public policy. Donald J. Boudreaux says the hazard of public health paternalists is real and growing. Ever heard of the Great Uncleaving? It's a fascinating take on why the time has come to withdraw your consent and, for the sake of your family, to separate from the system that is trying to destroy you. The Good Citizen has knocked another one out of the ballpark. To be or not to be, influenced is something that should be read by each of us trying to make our influence felt. Why do we do what we do? Given the choice between following the "science" and following your conscience, which would you choose? Connor Tomlinson warns that we should not be so quick to forgive and forget the mass information psychosis that was forced on us. Why should we be so jealous of the truth? Dr. Robert Malone says, it's just like Orwell warned: power is in tearing human minds to pieces. www.thebryanhydeshow.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/loving-liberty/support

I sometimes wish that I could pull my eyeballs out of my head and pop them into another person, just so they can see themselves how I see them. So they could witness the Divine shine that I see when I look at them. It's like we walk around with blinders on to who we really are and miss our own brilliance. Today on The Karen Kenney Show, we're talking about seeing ourselves clearly. If our mind's not in the right place, this isn't something we can always do for ourselves… but, if we surround ourselves with a few good friends or people in a supportive community, or group we may belong to; they can reflect back to us the truth of who we are. They can remind us of our goodness, our wholeness, our creativity, our strength, and our Divinity. They can also speak to us in a loving, fair, kind, graceful, compassionate way when we aren't living in alignment with who we truly are. It's my hope that if you don't already have at least one friend or person in your life that recognizes the beauty, the power, the brilliance and blessing that you are to the world; that this episode will inspire you to find them. How we see ourselves matters and sometimes we need a little reminder of just how brilliant and beloved we are.

We've heard that phrase, "the clothes make the man." What we wear…not physically…but spiritually…matters. As we continue through Ephesians, we see Paul's call on those who believe in Jesus Christ to live differently and to wear their new identity in Christ. We should be people who look different from the world.

Info Regarding the National Z-Call on February 24The Emperor's New Clothes, by Hans Christenson AndersonToday is Friday, February 18. We lost the recording to be aired yesterday, so are doing it today. That's show biz! This podcast is gaining momentum! We have reached a milestone: over 10,000 downloads! It's great to know you are listening! That's something, since this is new to me. Now I am encouraged to expand our reach. I hope you will continue to listen and share these episodes. From the beginning I believed this is one of the best ways to reach parents. I know you have very little opportunity to read lengthy articles or research materials on websites. PRIEs website is one of the best resources out there. Please use it when searching for more info. The show notes here are provided so you can do just that.I spoke with a woman earlier this week about the dynamics associated with our issues today. Isn't it incredulous people seem so ready to believe anything they are told? They don't question the validity. For example the transgender issue. Basic understanding of biology would lead most to doubt the premise one can “change their sex” by using cross sex hormones, and remove body parts. Even more astounding is the notion, pre-pubescent youth should be stopped from going through puberty, and school counselors should identify those students and keep their decision from their parents. And this ridiculous reasoning can applied to mask and vaccine mandates, and other lame excuses for restricting freedoms and controlling citizens. In addition, what is more astounding is the willingness of the people to be controlled!A fairy tale came to mind as we talked, The Emperor's New Clothes, by Hans Christian Anderson. Have you read it? We often use the phrase when making a point, but do we know the story? I decided to share it with you. Hans Christian Anderson was a Dane, born in 1805. He is recognized around the world for his books, including The Ugly Duckling, Thumbelina, The Little Match Girl, The Princess and the Pea, and many others. He endured many hardships and, by some accounts, transformed his pain into art. His fairy tales were highlighted in a movie in 1952, and he became a household favorite. His stories always had a meaning. The Emperor's New Clothes, by Hans Christenson AndersonThis is particularly interesting in light of the times.Fast forward to today! Who is the emperor? And who are the swindlers? I love this allegory. We must be continually vigilant to expose truth, although our nature is to leave the details of government in the hands of experts, not questioning their opinions. Like the “councillors, ministers, and men of great importance” in the story, we are prone to go along with the narrative we are fed by those who want to control and destroy our nation. And did you notice? It was a child who started the conversation acknowledging the truth, “He has nothing on!” I have observed in our fight to regain parents' rights in education, often those adults who are more financially successful are less prone to standing up for their children. They seem to be more concerned about what others think of them. "I don't want to draw attention to myself as a troublemaker.

ثوب الإمبراطور - ملابس الإمبراطور الجديدة (بالدنماركية: Kejserens Nye Klæder) هي قصة قصيرة للكاتب الدنماركي هانس كريستيان أندرسن من الدنمارك نشرت لأول مرة في كونهاغن في 7 إبريل 1837 مع قصة عروس البحر الصغيرة ضمن الجزء الثالث والأخير من حكايات أندرسن الخيالية للأطفال. تدور القصة حول ملك يقنعه خياطان بأن يصنعوا له بدلة خفية لا يراها الذي لا يصلح لمنصبه أو الأحمق وعديم الكفاءة. وعندما يخرج الملك أمام رعيته بملابسه الجديدة، لا يتجرأ أحد على قول أنه لا يرى أي ملابس على الملك، باستثناء طفل يصرخ "لكنه لا يرتدي أي ملابس على الإطلاق!". ويكيبيديا --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/childrensclassics/message
There are many conceptions of what the word "love" means. In ancient Greek literature, there were 3 words that were use to describe love more precisely. First is philos which means a love for a brother or sister or a friend. Second is eros which is the sexual love between a husband and wife. The third is agape which is unconditional love. This morning, we are going to be looking into agape love which is the cement which binds all the previous graces together. Paul gives us great insights on how to love in a practical way.
Paul gives us some great insights into the new clothes Jesus give to us when we are saved. These clothes are the clothes of grace which are made available through the person and work of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

Listener Favorites' Encore! Is the fancy fabric for the emperor's new clothes really invisible to those who are not worthy? Or is this a case of double-dealing dupery by two wily weavers? As the emperor struts his stylish self through the streets of his kingdom, it will take one forthright boy to blurt out the naked truth.PARENTS, TEACHERS AND HOMESCHOOLERS: This is a retelling of “The Emperor's New Clothes” and the lessons learned are that everyone makes mistakes, even an emperor, who admits his error and laughs with the crowd when he discovers he's made an embarrassing mistake in judgement.Find more information and resources: https://jonincharacter.com/the-emperors-new-quills/Season 3 begins on January 13, 2022!

It's curious how hard some people are willing to exert themselves in order find reasons to believe in the state. What's happening to Julian Assange is a perfect example of this. For the Assange case explained simply, Caitlin Johnstone gets right to the heart of the matter. A very worthwhile read. If you haven't been following Dr. Peter McCullough, he offers a principled and informed counterpoint to those pushing the official response to Covid. In fact, his recent interview with Joe Rogan is causing serious heartburn for the Covid narrative managers. Especially when Dr. McCullough describes how doctors worldwide were restricted in how they could treat Covid patients. If you've ever read Thomas Jefferson's writings, it's not hard to see why he is widely considered the architect of liberty in America. That's why it's a safe bet that the history erasers will be coming for his statutes sooner than later. Paul Krause has an excellent essay in praise of Thomas Jefferson and why his legacy of freedom must be erased by the historical revisionists. After nearly two straight years of rapidly deepening authoritarianism, there's a sense that resistance is beginning to solidify. Jeffrey A. Tucker explains how Elon Musk being named as Time magazine's Person of the Year is an encouraging sign, given Musk's recent outspokenness against that rising tide. We're all familiar with the story of The Emperor's New Clothes. However, the less of that story seems lost on most of our elected officials. Walter Gelles has an interesting take on why no politician dares to utter the obvious: "The emperor has no clothes." Maybe it's just the accumulated stress and strain of the past 2 years but I find myself focusing in on this Christmas season much more than in years past. The commercial trappings of Christmas are fun but Judge Andrew Napolitano says that taking Christmas seriously is a matter of humility, charity and willingness to submit to God's will. When words are overused or abused, they lose their power. Steve Feinstein has a great commentary on the abuse of the words "heroes, racists, and Hitler" and how these words are becoming meaningless. One of the biggest sources of conflict and contention is the continual overreach of federal power over our state and local governments. George Leef explores the question of how do the feds get away with that? www.thebryanhydeshow.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/loving-liberty/support

John 18:33-37Then Pilate entered the headquarters, summoned Jesus and said to him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” Jesus answered him, “Do you ask me this on your own, or have others told you about me?” Pilate said to him, “I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests have handed you over to me. What have you done?” Jesus said to him, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were from this world, my followers would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my kingdom is not from here.” Pilate said, “So, you are a king, then?” Jesus said to him, “You say that I am a king. For this I was born and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.” Whenever I hear this account of Jesus standing before Pontius Pilate, this painting comes to mind. It's called, in English, “Behold the Man,” by Antonio Ciseri, who painted it in 1871, according to Wikipedia. And I don't recall this painting because I'm any kind of connoisseur of religious fine art – or a connoisseur of fine art, generally, to be honest. The painting was just used as the cover of a book I have about the life of Pontius Pilate. And when I wondered about Jesus, standing with Pilate, before the crowds, in this morning's Christ the King Gospel story, something about it all – and this painting, too – had me thinking about that old Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale, The Emperor's New Clothes.And just to be clear about where your Pastor's head is, when I think about that classic story, this is the book cover that comes to mind, this one from some “early reader” Disney-flavored version of the story from my childhood. And maybe it's because I had baptisms and babies on the brain, BUT just when I wondered if I was off on a weird, strange, Pastor Mark kind of rabbit-hole, I came across THIS picture. It was painted by some guy named Rob Embleton, sometime in the 1980's, for a different picture book about the Emperor's new clothes. Anyway, if nothing else, the similarities between the two paintings made me think maybe I was onto something – whether Rob Embleton or Antonio Ciseri would have connected these theological dots in a million years. But back to what matters, here. Some here may not remember the story of The Emperor's New Clothes, which goes something like this:There was an Emperor, obsessed with his appreciation for clothes – fine linens, fancy robes and whatnot, so he summons and commissions some of the master weavers under his rule to make for him a suit of the most expensive linen and the finest cloth.These weavers, not wild about their self-centered Emperor, decide to make a fool of him and trick him into believing they have crafted the most beautiful of robes, made from a fine, but mysterious, magical cloth. They convince their fool of a King that the cloth they've used can only be seen by wise people, worthy of whatever position, title, or status they hold. Which meant, of course, that fools, unworthy of their lot in life wouldn't be able to see the outfit they had made.After pretending to dress their emperor in clothes that don't exist, the emperor is secretly/privately discouraged that he, himself, can't see the new outfit he's supposed to be wearing, which would imply that he, himself, was unfit for the role of Emperor at all. Instead of calling the tailors to task for their prank, though, he plays along with it all – hook, line and sinker – and pretends to be donned in the finest, most beautiful duds in town.And he goes out into the world, parading throughout the kingdom in his birthday suit, extolling the virtues and the beauty of his new wardrobe. When the rest of the kingdom's people hear about it they, too – afraid to be the only ones not worthy of seeing what everyone else could apparently see – “oooohh” and “aaaahh,” pretending to admire and to adore their Emperor's new clothes.And on it goes until a small child, out in the public square, without wisdom or regard for the charade of it all, declares what everyone was pretending or denying or playing along with – for their own selfish sakes: “The Emperor's not wearing any clothes!”The story, of course, is a simple comment on the hypocrisy of leaders, it's about self-importance and conceit, it's about wanting to belong and to be in charge at the expense of your own integrity. It's about pretending to be something you're not and of “going along to get along.”And when I think about Jesus and his title as Christ the King, alongside the story of the Emperor's new clothes, I see the fairy tale in a different kind of light. [PIC 1]Certainly, I could cite examples – so many examples – in the world, in our body politic these days, in the Church – where people go along to get along, where hypocrisy wins too much of the time, where leaders don't always measure up to what's expected of them, where we pretend and deny and play along with the rest of the world for the sake of pride, popularity, power, and any number of self-serving desires.But when I think about Jesus, none of that is true. When I think about Jesus and the Emperor's new clothes, I think of the tables being turned in a different sort of way. In the fairy tale, the Emperor is the fool and the hypocrite and the one whose own incompetence is on display by his attempt to hide all of that – his incompetence, his unworthiness, his insecurity, his lack of integrity.In Jesus though, this King we call the Christ, I think we – along with Pilate and Herod and all those who condemned Jesus way back when – we're the ones who play the fool too much of the time. As much as we're taught to the contrary, we still look for a King who dresses in the stuff of this world. But the kingdom of God is not made up of the stuff of this world.Even though we gather around mangers and crosses – the ultimate symbols of humility, poverty and pain; even though we confess a suffering servant as God; even though we hear about the last being first and the first being last; about the meek inheriting the earth; about the Kingdom belonging to the poor in Spirit; about turning the other cheek; about forgiveness and mercy and grace upon grace...In spite of all of that, we try to make Jesus, Christ the King, like a ruler in this world. We create him in our own image and we make him over in ways that match up with our intentions, which are not God's intentions a lot of the time. Even though we celebrate the resurrection and the life, too many people fear a God who rules by death and damnation. Even though we sing about a God of amazing grace, a beautiful savior, a Prince of Peace, a blessed assurance – we make up rules, we put up stumbling blocks and we close doors to just how mighty, how gracious, how generous and how forgiving our God can be.In other words, we dress Jesus up in clothes that God never intended to wear. We dress up Christ, our King, in attitudes and opinions that fit us, but that are just too small for him. We cover up the simple grace and peace and love of this Jesus with judgment and fear, with limits and restrictions, with a closed mind and with clenched fists that were never made for him. As Anne Lamott said once, “You know you've created God in your own image when your God hates all the same people that you do.”But all along Jesus – a little bit like the Emperor in the fairy tale – isn't wearing any of it. And Jesus – unlike the Emperor in the fairy tale – never pretends otherwise. Jesus Christ, our King and the Emperor of Eternity, hits the streets and marches to the Cross. And all along the way, he wears nothing more than swaddling clothes and belts of righteousness; he wears a crown of thorns and straps a cross to his back; he is stripped bare, he lets them gamble for his robes and he is covered up with nothing but blood, sweat, spit, tears – and the full weight of our sins. And he does it all so we might finally see what God has been trying to show us all along:That our King, in Jesus Christ, wears humility and gentleness; generosity and peace; forgiveness and mercy; love and good news. And because of Jesus, we're invited to do the same. God wants us to stop pretending. God wants us to stop “ooohing” and “aaahing” over all the costumes and confusion the world adds to the simple, profound, unfettered grace and mercy of our Messiah.We don't have to pretend to be without sin. We don't have to pretend that any one of us is any more worthy than the next person. We don't have to be afraid. We don't have to be right. We don't have to judge or be judged. We don't have to do anything.We only get to look to the cross and see our salvation. We only get to feel the waters of baptism – and share them like we will this morning (with EllaSophia and Juliette) – this water that promises to turn sin into forgiveness and death into new life. And we get to lead our own parade of good news, then, fully clothed in grace and mercy and peace – and more – and we get to share the same, and tell this Truth, for a world so desperate to hear it.Amen

Every hero STARTS as a CHILD, and every Child can CHOOSE to become a Hero... Just like THIS one!On Monday, Betsy had some brand new clothes to wear to school, and she was feeling pretty good about herself. Like every day, she headed down the hallway to the auditorium where everyone was meeting. Then it happened. Some tall boy looked at her and said, “You're uuuugly.” Betsy kept walking, but her whole attitude had just been ruined by a boy she had never seen before. What Betsy didn't know is that another girl who the boy really liked was standing near him. “Why did you do that,” she asked? “Do what?” the boy answered. “Why did you tell that pretty girl she was ugly?” “Her? I don't even know her? Who cares anyway?” the boy said. “Well, I care!” The girl walked away and left him thinking about what he had done. “HEROES HELP others—they don't hurt others,” she said. Well, that got the boy's attention, and a few minutes later, Betsy came walking back around the corner in the hallway. This time it was pretty obvious she had been crying. The boy was actually embarrassed to say anything to her so he just let her go by. That afternoon he made the effort to find out what her name was. He also learned that Betsy liked chocolate. So the following day he waited for her in the hallway. When she came around the corner, he called her name and said, “You probably hate me, but I wanted you to have this.” He gave her a note wrapped around a chocolate bar, and then he disappeared around the corner. Betsy opened the note. “I was being kind of a jerk on Monday,” the note said, “and I just wanted you to know that I'm sorry.” Well, the rest of that day was all smiles for Betsy. She forgave him, and he—well he learned a little bit that day about becoming a HERO! That's what I know about the beginning of This Hero, and I know that YOU Can Be a Hero TOO!

Today's episode is a Monday Morning Musing with me, Heather Brockbank Miller. This is a short 10 minute episode on Hans Christian Andersen's rough beginnings. Did you know Hans Christian Andersen had four failed career attempts, and a horrible experience in school? These included: three failed apprenticeships, a dead end in the theater, and a very rough experience in school owing to the fact that he had a cruel and disparaging teacher. He experienced a deep depression, and almost gave up on writing! In this musing I recommend a few short stories of his like "The Tallow Candle", "The Emperor's New Clothes", "The Snow Queen", "The Ugly Duckling", and "The Little Mermaid." I pose a few questions to you listener that will hopefully inspire you to read Hans Christian Andersen and keep trying in all aspects of your life despite any failures. If Hans can do it, so can you!

Kathleen Stock was until last week a professor of philosophy at the University of Sussex. In the last few years she has become better known for her gender critical views, contributing to the highly charged public debate over trans rights and what she and others see as the re-defining of the word ‘woman'. This year she published a book called Material Girls: Why Reality Matters for Feminism, in which she argues that we are in an era of Emperor's New Clothes, that it isn't possible for people to change their biological sex, and that someone's sex should sometimes takes precedence over their gender identity. She is also clear that “Trans people deserve lives free from fear. They deserve laws and policies that properly protect them from discrimination and violence. But as she says…laws and policies based around gender identity are not the right route.” She gives an exclusive interview to Emma Barnett. Leanne Benjamin OBE was principal for 20 years with the Royal Ballet. As one of the most important ballet dancers of the past 50 years, she looks back on her career spanning from 18 to 49, in her new autobiography, ‘Built for Ballet'. Richard Ratcliffe, the husband of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe who's still detained in Iran, is on hunger strike again in Whitehall, close to government buildings. Today is Day 10. He wants the government to do more to secure Nazanin's release. She's been held in Iran for five years on spying charges - which she denies - and recently lost her appeal against a second prison sentence. Richard joins Emma from outside the Foreign Office in Whitehall.
