Make sure to subscribe to this podcast for weekly conversations about faith and fitness! (4:18) Tyrone Baskin, known as the "king of high 5s" at his job, has worked for Two Men and a Truck (moving company) for 17 years, working his way up to be GM. We talk about spreading joy with the power of human touch, before and after the Covid pandemic. We are are all broken but are not meant to live a life of isolation and disappointment. (9:05) How does he balance his job and his Christian faith? Tyrone says God living on the inside of him helps him be a better employee. He was ordained as a pastor 9 years ago. That side of him leads to more exceeding of customer's expectations at the business. And preparing for work includes QUIET TIME - he breaks down what his looks like, comparing it to the need to plug in your phone and recharge it, like reconnecting with God. (16:19) Being known as the "Jesus guy" at work means people trust him with their mess, but being a pastor has its downfalls too and the need to unplug. (18:15) Tyrone has a passion for teaching God's Word, and seeing that scripture lift up people who are weary, hopeless. He gives examples of many overwhelmed people reaching out to him, but light shines brightest in the darkness! But it's about a relationship with God not empty religion / spirituality / moralism. This podcast guest also (21:56) is involved in non-profit ministries like Take The City, showing him how evangelism can happen on the streets and how churches can be united and how people of different races can come together. He's also got advice for people that are not as comfortable sharing their faith with others. (26:16) There are moments that change and define all of us. For Tyrone, it was being dumped 16+ years ago, then falling in love with Jesus several years later, finding true identity and peace in Him. (30:45) For nearly a decade, he's been the Pastor of Christ Alone Ministries (CAM) in Columbus GA. The name is simply about our hope being in just Jesus. He's also on a growing spiritual journey with his wife, as they just celebrated an anniversary and are now empty nesters. As he gets older, he also wants to hit the gym more, lose weight. (37:25) All his jobs are service oriented...and in wearing all those hats, he wants to represent Jesus, using gifts God gave him to lift others up, mentioning 1 Corinthians 12:7. We'll tell you where and when you can find Tyrone and his church, (40:52) then he brings the closing prayer for this episode. Thanks for listening to the #RunTheRace podcast!

Fr. Bill continues a series highlighting the history and practice of Two Way Prayer. In this episode he shares step by step suggestions for a daily practice. Show Notes: A Testament of Devotion by Thomas R. Kelly / Kelly's first essay: The Light Within makes excellent Quiet Time reading. Here's a pdf version of this contemplative classic. Here's a one-page guide with suggestions for doing the daily practice: chrome- Thomas Merton's Prayer: “My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it. Therefore will I trust you always, though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.” Big Book quote from page 87: “What used to be the hunch or the occasional inspiration gradually becomes a working part of the mind. Being still inexperienced and having just made conscious contact with God, it is not probable that we are going to be inspired at all times. We might pay for this presumption in all sorts of absurd actions and ideas. Nevertheless, we find that our thinking will, as time passes, be more and more on the plane of inspiration. We come to rely upon it. --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/fatherbillw/support

Recently, my mom mentioned her regret about not having a consistent Bible reading practice throughout her life. “I wish I'd read the Bible more,” she said. I suspect Mom isn't alone. It can be challenging to read the Bible consistently. Our conversation triggered a self-reflection regarding my relationship with God's Word. And guess what? This led me to curate a list of 10 practical, life-stage-friendly ways to read the Bible. From finding a perfect reading nook in your home to filling the lunch break void with divine script, there's an approach for everyone. Whether you are a young mother juggling life, a career-driven individual, or an empty-nester, you'll find a Bible reading strategy that seamlessly fits into your lifestyle. As we embark on this journey of fostering a deeper relationship with God, I hope to open up new possibilities for you and inspire you to incorporate Bible reading into your daily routine, irrespective of the season of life you're navigating. Getting God's Word into your life is a practice you'll never regret.

Today, Joy dives into the topic of why she gave up her quiet time and how it has transformed her approach to motherhood. In this episode, Joy addresses the pressure that Christian moms often feel to be perfect and do everything perfectly. She emphasizes that even if we could parent perfectly, it doesn't guarantee that our kids will turn out perfectly. Joy encourages moms to not constantly feel the weight of the world on their shoulders, but instead to find joy and fulfillment in their role as mothers. She shares her perspective on quiet time and challenges the notion that it has to look a certain way for every mom. Joy discusses her own personal experiences and the freedom she found in giving God all 24 hours of her day, rather than just a specific hour. She shares practical ways she spends time with God and emphasizes the importance of finding a rhythm that works for each individual mom. If you're a mom seeking a fresh perspective on quiet time and how to connect with God in the midst of motherhood, this episode is for you. Tune in to gain insights and be inspired to experience the joy of motherhood to the fullest. You've got the Holy Spirit! You can do it, mama!

I broke one of my own big rules this summer. For the last few weeks, I've been kicking myself, saying, how could I do this? I know better. I wrote a book called Free Time, after all! Well, as I say in the introduction, business stress is a systems problem. Listen in for more on the mistake I made, and the systems and reminders I set up to ensure I have ample free time next summer.
REBROADCAST: Our quiet time with God will not always produce a feeling, but we can guarantee that we are becoming transformed. We know this because it's not about what we do by effort - the Spirit is who brings transformation. In this episode, I explain the purpose of quiet time with God, why it's important, and how to spend your time with Him. The length of the quiet time does not matter, but it should be enough time to meditate on what was read and then pray about it or anything else that comes to mind. Drawing near to God is a rewarding experience, and once a regular habit of quiet time is created, a specific time for study and prayer is eagerly looked forward to.
