Have you ever walked into a room full of people and still felt alone? Does your marriage feel more like roommates or a transaction? Is your relationship with God a to-do list, but you rarely feel close to Him? Today is for you if you're tired of feeling lonely or disconnected from friends, your spouse or God. “Intimacy is our capacity for closeness and tenderness towards others.” – Richard Rohr. Intimacy is what opens the door to closeness. It dissipates the loneliness. Intimacy changes everything, including the way you live, love and communicate. How do we achieve intimacy? 1. Let yourself out Start with your relationship with God. It's the safest place to start. Intimacy is risky self-disclosure. Sit with Father like you're having a cup of coffee and a piece of pie with a friend. As you do, you'll get more comfortable. 2. Let others in You have to let the wall down to let others in too. Again, start with letting Father in. When you know how loved you are by your Heavenly Father; you can receive His love and give it to others. You got this! You can do this!! And, you're not doing it alone; your Father is with you every step of the way! If this podcast is helping you, can you share it with a friend that needs it, please? Thanks a bunch for listening! Until Next Time, Live Fearlessly Free!

Your Faith Journey - Finding God Through Words, Song and Praise

I invite you to again listen to the beginning verses of our first reading in Habakkuk, as we find them in The Message translation of the Bible: The problem as God gave Habakkuk to see it: God, how long do I have to cry out for help before you listen? How many times do I have to yell, “Help! Murder! Police!”          before you come to the rescue? Why do you force me to look at evil, stare trouble in the face day after day? Anarchy and violence break out, quarrels and fights all over the place. Law and order fall to pieces. Justice is a joke. The wicked have the righteous hamstrung and stand justice on its head. When we read those verses at our Tuesday Noon Bible Study, everyone in the group felt as though the prophet Habakkuk was writing words for us in our present time and current cultural context. The truth is our present context is one in which we sometimes find ourselves feeling as though we are trying to cling to our faith. The people of Judah were trying to cling to their faith. The prophet articulates their fear and their questions as they are facing military threats from their neighbors in Babylon and Egypt. And, after articulating their cries for help, Habakkuk then urges them to be faithful to God who will in time save them.  The fact of the matter is that all of today's readings are about clinging to our faith when everything around us seems to be (pardon my expression) going to hell in a handbasket. In our New Testament reading, Timothy seems to be losing his grip as a leader of the early church. And, in our gospel reading, the disciples – those who are closest to Jesus himself – seem to be wrestling with some crisis of faith.  So, I find it hopeful that we hear these words today because they are so relevant for us in our present context. Over the past few weeks, we have heard some rather perplexing and harsh stories from Jesus.  And it is easy to read today's gospel passage and receive it as yet another harsh message of condemnation.  However, it seems to me Jesus is communicating something else.  So, listen again to the beginning of this passage with new ears.  When the disciples ask Jesus to increase their faith, listen as Jesus answers the disciples with words of kindness, love, tenderness, and maybe even a bit of a smile.  Jesus replied, “Why, you do not need more faith.  Even this much faith (his thumb and forefinger pinching together) is enough!”  You see, if we hear Jesus speaking with love it totally changes our hearing of his remarks.  This passage is not really about quantity and having more faith.  It is all about understanding what faith is, what faith means, and what faith does. So, what is faith?  In his famous 1 Corinthians 13 words, Paul understood faith as one of the three greatest gifts – faith, hope and love.  In the New Testament, especially the writings of Paul, faith is often paired with love or said to work in conjunction with love. Furthermore, in Hebrews we read, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”  If we think about what faith is not, we understand that faith does not equal security, and faith is not assurance that all will go the way we want.  Faith does not mean that we are assured of going to the holy wishing well and being given exactly what we think is in our best interest. No.  Faith in God seems to really be about a kind of surrender, a kind of letting go, a kind of commitment and a conscious recognition of where we place our trust.  In his Large Catechism, Luther provides an explanation for the first commandment, “You shall have no other gods before me,” and I think his words might be helpful.  He writes: A “god” is the term for that to which we are to look for all good and in which we are to find refuge in all need.  Therefore, to have a God is nothing else than to trust and believe in that one with your whole heart.  As I have often said, it is the trust and faith of the heart alone that make both God and an idol.  If your faith and trust are right, then your God is the true one.  Conversely, where your trust is false and wrong, there you do not have the true God.  For these two belong together, faith and God.  Anything on which your heart relies and depends, I say, that is really your God. (The Book of Concord, p. 386) It is so very difficult in our “do it yourself” culture to just let go and place our faith and trust in God.  I really wonder if this lack of willingness to let go, to let go of our need to control, is more often the problem than the amount of faith we might have.  When talking about this challenge, Richard Rohr writes: A common saying is, “God helps those who help themselves.”  I think that phrase can be understood wisely; but in most spiritual situations it is not completely true.  Scripture clearly says, in many ways, that God helps those who trust in God, not those who help themselves. We need to be told that very strongly because of our “do it yourself” orientation.  As educated people, as Americans, as middle-class people who have practiced climbing, we are accustomed to doing it ourselves.  It takes applying the brakes, letting go of our own plans, allowing Another, and experiencing power from a Larger Source to really move to higher awareness.  Otherwise, there is no real transformation, but only increased willpower.  As if the one with the most willpower wins! Willfulness is quite different than willingness.  They are two different energetic styles and normally yield very different fruit. The reality is we already have the faith we need.  God gives us the faith we need.  But, as Richard Rohr has said, we must show a willingness to allow God to be the one in charge, to trust in God even when this might seem so very hard, even when it seems like everything is going to hell in a handbasket. Yes, God gives us the faith we need.  However, we must be willing to actually use it, to actively live it, to allow God to use us and that is so very countercultural.  As I hope all of you are aware, we use our faith to serve God, not to earn God's love or salvation.  We use our faith to serve God through our actions and the way we live together in community for the sake of the world because that is what faith will expect of us.  As theologian, Kimberly Long, suggests, “You already have the faith you need.  Now fulfill its purpose: live it!”  And, this is where the second part of this gospel comes in. To understand faith in this way is to understand faith as a way of life.  And, it is important to remember that we do not do this alone.  We do it as we live together in community as the broken body of Christ.  I think, the issue at stake is how we live together in community.  God gives us what we need to flourish abundantly in faithful community.  As the second part of today's gospel reading suggests, in the economy of faith, we who serve depend on a benevolent master who not only expects us to obey but gives us all that is required to do so.  And, much of that comes by living together as the community of the baptized.  The Rev. Dr. Anna Madsen, in her book I Can Do No Other: The Churches Here We Stand Moment, writes about this baptized community and the life of faith.  Her words are helpful as she remembers what she learned from seminary Professor Walt Bouman. She writes: You see, as Bouman taught many of us, baptism only “works” if it is “used,” that is, if it is trusted.  Our God is that in which or in whom we trust.  Baptism initiates us into a life of trust in God, of our participation in the community God, into the risen Jesus.  The word community is key here, for baptism is not only an individual matter.  It is, of course, a promise to each individual person (we are known by name).  But baptism initiates us into the community of the baptized.  We are, in a sense, baptized into a community of trusters. (I Can Do No Other: The Churches Here We Stand Moment, p. 22) Yes, we are “baptized into a community of trusters,” the community of faith.  And, when we live together and work together as the broken body of Christ, the faith we have been given enables God to work through us and do some amazing things.  We have seen such faith at work in our own congregation as we joined other congregations to create Michigan Refugee Hope, an organization that has enabled us to provide life and hope to young refugees.  In fact, through this effort, this congregation has taken in over fifteen young refugees.  We will likely be taking in more yet this year. That is what faith does.  When Jesus speaks to us today, he is not so much talking about quantity of faith.  He is talking about what faith is and what faith does.  Faith is not stockpiled in a storehouse for the working of spiritual wonders. No.  Faith is lived out as obedience to a just, merciful and loving God.  And, as we walk together in community as the broken body of Christ, we find that the God who expects much from us also promises much and does provide all the faith we need.  God provides all that we need to live into God's call to do the work of justice, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with our God.

In this post(?)pandemic reality, many churches are joining the long history of religious institutions with beautiful, mostly empty buildings.

Laurie Wevers is a spiritual director and a therapist, who works with people at the intersection of religion and trauma. Her work is informed by her own story, growing up within white evangelicalism and with narcissistic parents, yet eventually finding her way towards mystical and contemplative spirituality, including being a student at Richard Rohr's Living School.Of course, there are aspects to this story and this work that are deeply painful. Laurie calls these teachers. Our conversation left me with hope though, as Laurie is the kind of person committed to helping people walk into the new. There's no going backwards, she told me, only progress, and the discovery of what that looks like for each different person. As I spoke to Laurie I felt like she was exactly the kind of guide that many people need as they navigate the disorienting and uncharted territory of leaving certain spaces, without knowing where to next. We spoke about what this journey might look like for people, and towards the end we got into some really interesting territory talking about what kind of communities might help facilitate this process as well.You can check out more of Laurie's work and connect with her here, otherwise I hope this conversation is helpful for you, where ever you are in your own journey.

In a world filled with conflicting opinions and confident incorrectness, how do we know what is right and true? What do we do when other Christians embrace and promote a form of religion that seems alien or even dangerous to us? What's the basis for knowing what we think we know and making the necessary decisions of life when our understanding is inherently limited?

This conversation with Ryan Miles and Drew is not to be missed. Ryan is vulnerable, raw, and so deeply grounded within himself as he shares his experience before, during, and after graduating from the Hoffman Process. Ryan tells us the big pain point that brought him to the Process - the inability to feel empathy for others, including family and friends. He felt very alone, didn't know why he felt so alone, and had no idea what was causing him to feel that way. He wanted to care about people and didn't know how to. When you listen to Ryan talk about his experience post-Process, you can sense the immense transformation that took place during his seven days at our California Hoffman Retreat Center in Petaluma. During his Process, Ryan did indeed come to understand why he could not find empathy for others; he felt no empathy, or love, for himself. Ryan considered himself selfish, but he discovered something ironic about this belief. He says he now sees that selfishness is that "your self-view is so small that all you can see is yourself." By day two of the Process, he realized that his whole idea of love had been backward for most of his life. Ryan realized that Love is indeed a birthright. He found that love is waiting for us within. All we need to do is come home to that Love. More about Ryan Miles: Ryan was raised on a dairy farm near the small town of Weippe in northern Idaho. His parents, Grant and Sharon, ran the dairy as second-generation owners. Ryan was the youngest of four boys. He grew up in an environment of a strong work ethic and a conservative Christian belief system through the Wesleyan church. After graduating high school in 1996, Ryan moved away from home and into the world at large, which was the custom of his family. Thus began his adventure of survival and personal development. In 1999, Ryan married his life companion Elissa. In 2010 they had a son Cash followed by a daughter Sunny in 2013. Ryan started a business in the European Auto Repair world called Peak Euro in 2007. Today, they have 12 employees and are experiencing strong growth. However, the pursuit of perfectionism and financial success didn't lead to attaining Joy and Inner Peace. Ryan began to think there has to be more to life. The world of auto repair led Ryan to Hoffman through industry coaching and other personal development workshops. One such workshop was the Hoffman Process. At the Process, Ryan did the life-changing work that can be done in just one week. Ryan's favorite authors include Eckhart Tolle, Anthony de Mello, Richard Rohr, Michael Singer, and Paulo Coelho.

What can redesigning space in community look like after inheriting generations worth of dogmatised, static belief systems on what it means to hold and create space that preserves the inherent dignity of its people, and other spaces? Today we are joined by Andrew Lang, an educator in the Pacific Northwest and an alumnus of the Living School for Action and Contemplation, led by Richard Rohr, Cynthia Bourgeault, James Finley, Barbara Holmes, and Brian McLaren. He is the author of the forthcoming book, Unmasking the Inner Critic: Lessons for Living an Unconstricted Life. Along with blogging regularly, he facilitates workshops helping people to navigate their inner lives and explore their sense of identity and spirituality.  In this conversation, we explore pathways for redesigning communal spaces to restore their fluidity and sacredness, how abstract spaces are grounded in embodiment practices and hold you as you are, the interweaving layers of shadow work and how shadow work can bring down walls of defensiveness towards radical change in community.

TW:  deconstruction, religious shame/trauma, sexual assault, sexual misconduct done by pastors, homophobia/racism/ableism/misogyny inflicted by the church, eating disorders + fasting + fatphobia, brief talk about cults This week we have my older sister, Manni (she/her), on the podcast to chat about our deconstruction and shared upbringing. We talk about everything from how Christianity can become toxic and discriminatory to what deconstruction actually means to how we've moved past bitterness. We also cover quite a few questions sent in from Tik Tok listeners about religion + deconstruction!This episode serves as a little bit of a follow up to my deconstruction journey in episode 5. I wanted to go more in depth about my personal journey and how I have grown and even changed some perspectives in the past year. Healing and growth involve a lot of change, and I want to be transparent about that.If you want to follow Manni or reach out to her, you can follow her on IG @mannibobanni. Manni is also selling some vintage items at a thrift event in the greater Seattle in November area and you can DM her for more info. The resources Manni mentions in the episode are:  “The Bible Tells Me So: Why Defending Scripture Has Made Us Unable to Read It” and “How the Bible Actually Works: In Which I Explain How An Ancient, Ambiguous, and Diverse Book Leads Us to Wisdom Rather Than Answers―and Why That's Great News” by Peter Enns. She also talks about how work by Richard Rohr has been helpful to her during her deconstruction & reconstruction journeys. Manni also mentions, “It Didn't Start With You” by Mark Wolynn as a trauma resource. If you are looking for additional deconstruction episodes, we have a list of deconstruction episodes at our IG (@serafinablog). “Girl Boner: The Good Girl's Guide to Sexual Empowerment” by August McLaughlin and any of August's other work. August was also on episode 21 of the podcast! “The Body Keeps The Score” is also an amazing resources for trauma work, and I have episodes (28-30) that breakdown the book. “The Purity Myth” by Jessica Valenti is also an amazing resource for purity culture survivors!

We often look at the results of quizzes and personality assessments for language to help describe ourselves to others. And to better understand ourselves. These assessments can help us manage how we hire, date, and even want others perceive us. The language of these tests can fuel connection and belonging within and with others–to an extent.But it can also be used to sort, judge, or even shame aspects of another's personality. These assessments can be used to silo an aspect of how people show up or experience the world, into something that becomes polarizing or seen as “good” or “bad.”We react to judgments of a trait in someone else instead of being present to someone's full identity.Yet, used with self-reflection and curiosity, assessment systems like the Enneagram can further a deeper understanding of ourselves, so we can in turn lead ourselves and others from a place of health.My guest today is shaking things up around how we experience and use the Enneagram. And I am loving how she integrates the Enneagram into her anti-racism work and writings.Jessica Denise Dickson (she/her/hers) is a life empowerment coach who believes that when Black women heal, the world heals. She believes that the path to personal and collective healing comes through examining the systemic issues that impact each of us, and unraveling oppressive systems from our personal, internalized, and collective worldviews. She utilizes the inner work of the Enneagram with the context setting of antiracism to create healing environments for her clients in one-on-one work, group work, and with organizations so that every human can live more authentically with self-trust, self-safety, and fully embodied freedom that is collectively sustained and celebrated.Listen to the full episode to hear:How shame, fear, and scarcity lay the foundation for the culture of whiteness and how it impacts how white people engage with anti-racism workHow systems like the Enneagram give us language to describe and understand our experiencesHow the Enneagram helps us understand our motivations and reactivity, so that we can approach growth and expansion with more self-awarenessWhy the goal of Enneagram work is not to overcome your type or exile your reactivityHow embodiment builds resilience and connectionLearn more about Jessica Dickson:JessicaDDickson.comInstagram: @JessicaDDicksonCoachingLearn more about Rebecca:rebeccaching.comWork With RebeccaSign up for the weekly Unburdened Leader EmailResources:The Enneagram: A Christian Perspective, Richard Rohr and Andreas EbertAll about Love: New Visions, bell hooksHamiltonEverything Everywhere All at Once

Christian nationalism has become a buzzword among conservative activists such as Congresswomen Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, and conservative activist Charlie Kirk. We believe we need to call it what it is: Christian Fascism. For this episode, we had a great conversation with Andrew Griffin and Glen McDaniel, two musicians of faith who are continuously deconstructing the phenomena of White Christian Culture, how it affects our society, and how we may confront this socially learned sickness.Christian nationalists believe the United States is meant to be a Christian nation and seek to "reclaim" the nation for God. Support for right-wing politicians and social issues, such as immigration, gun, and poverty legislation, is better understood as Christian nationalism rather than evangelicalism per se.Christian nationalism's fundamental tenets can be summarized as follows:The federal government should declare the United States a Christian nation.The federal government should advocate Christian values.The federal government should not enforce the strict separation of church and state.The federal government should allow religious symbols in public spaces.The success of the United States is part of God's plan.The federal government should allow prayer in public schools.Andrew Griffin: https://www.andrewgriffinmusic.com/Simply Three: https://simplythreemusic.com/Richard Rohr: https://cac.org/about/our-teachers/richard-rohr/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_RohrAfrican Origins of Christianity: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KP73uEFASQgJabari Osaze: https://www.instagram.com/jabariosaze/Labinth - Jealous: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXD52y9jsOUWhite Christian Nationalism: The Deep Story Behind the Capitol Insurrection: https://berkleycenter.georgetown.edu/responses/white-christian-nationalism-the-deep-story-behind-the-capitol-insurrectionhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_nationalismhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_fascismhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_rightSupport the show

Marcia Montenegro became interested in the supernatural realm when she was just a teenager. Her journey into spiritualism evolved into a fascination with divination, occultism, and ultimately, astrology. Today, Marcia strongly warns Christians against getting involved with New Age Gnosticism, Ouija boards, fortune telling, and the Enneagram through her ministry Christian Answers for the New Age. These things, Marcia shares, are simply man's way of looking to the creation rather than the Creator to gain knowledge and wisdom. Marcia additionally reveals red flags to look for when considering New Age self-help books, and points out that the word “holistic” can even be a gateway to New Thought principles that are rooted in occult spirituality and pseudoscience.   TAKEAWAYS First Lady Nancy Reagan had an astrologer during her time in the White House and swayed Ronald's decisions while he was president. The Bible warns believers against practicing astrology and partaking in any type of divination or witchcraft. The Enneagram has unfortunately been widely embraced by the modern American church. Marcia has authored two must-read books, Spellbound and Richard Rohr and the Enneagram Secret.

Your Faith Journey - Finding God Through Words, Song and Praise

This last week during Bible School, we learned about the story of the Good Samaritan, what it means to be a good neighbor, and how we are to love others even if they are very different from us.  And on Wednesday, we focused on perfect love that casts out fear, the perfect love of God, that enables us to look at people who are different from us and not fear them. Yes, do not fear!  We need to hear this message which is also found in our gospel reading for today because one of the realities of present day twenty-first century life is that fear and anxiety seem to increasingly shape our lives.  All we need do is look at the mass shootings that happen on a weekly basis or think about the past 2 ½ years of COVID and the anxiety that has grown in people's lives due to isolation and fear of this virus.  And think about climate change.  If we take an honest look at the facts, the science and the statistics, while thinking about the growing threat of a changing climate, it is daunting, and we cannot but feel a sense of fear.  The twenty-four-hour-a-day newsfeed instills all kinds of fear in people's lives. The newsfeed communicates political voices spewing forth rhetoric that incites fear, especially fear of others.  Quite frankly, fear seems to be a driving force in too much of present campaign rhetoric.  There is fear of terrorism – both foreign and domestic, fear of a volatile economy and our financial situations, fear of unemployment, war, hunger, poverty, homelessness, disease, and death.  The effect these forms of fear have on our culture and our lives at times seems overwhelming.  Consequently, I think many of us have deep concerns and ask questions like: How might I live in order to know that I am safe and secure? Where is the place of security for me and those I love? In the depth of these concerns, we desperately need to hear the words Jesus is speaking in Luke's gospel.  Into our fear, across centuries of human experience, Jesus' teaching to us today offers an extraordinary word of comfort.  The precious words Jesus speaks to us today can never be heard too often.  “Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is God's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”  These words are some of my favorite words in Scripture because I believe they are a perfect summary of the Gospel.  These words provide the absolute assurance we need to hear if we are to resist the extensive fearmongering and the many voices of doom surrounding us every day.  In this passage from Luke's gospel, we hear proclaimed in no uncertain terms that God loves us as only a parent can love, and God has not only promised we will belong to God forever….but Jesus says it is God's good pleasure to give us the kingdom.  God loves you!  It is God's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.  You are accepted and loved as you are by God, your loving parent.  Do not fear!  These are words of comfort and reassurance in an increasingly threatening world.  And, they are not whistling-in-the-dark comfort, but rather the reassurance that what is seen is not all that is, a reminder that the fear and anxiety associated with earthy living need not have the last word in defining one's life.  Oh, yes!  We desperately need to hear these words.  Now, quite honestly, for those of us in this faith community who really have more than we need, one of the fears that besets us has to do with our “stuff,” our treasures and possessions.  Fear often causes us to hold on tightly to what we have so that we can protect ourselves against what might happen.  Fear leads us to believe that our treasures and wealth will protect us against some dark and terrible day.  However, Jesus' words remind us that even our “stuff” and our earthly treasures can be destroyed.  Jesus reminds us that our earthly treasures are not ultimate.  Earthly treasure is not where our true treasure is.  Jesus really challenges us to go to that deeper place in life and examine what our hearts hold dear, what is truly ultimate.  He challenges us to embrace the true treasure God desires to freely give us, because it is God's “good pleasure” to give us the kingdom, a treasure that is imperishable, a treasure that does not fade or fail.  Yes, wherever there is fear in our lives, Jesus speaks a surprising word of comfort to us, “Do not be afraid little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”  It is all gift!  And, simply said, what comes as a gift does not have to be purchased with one's wealth.  Jesus' words invite us to trust our future to this benevolent, gracious God because our future rests in the gracious promises and presence of God to us and with us.  Our life rests in the God who totally accepts us as we are, and, again, it is all gift.  Jesus' words are powerful and timely and merit our reflection.  God does not want to condemn us or punish us…. God wants to give us good things….. and the best thing is the promise that we will belong to God forever.  You see, God is not an impersonal force behind the universe but one who has been revealed to be very much like a loving parent.  And, as with all loving parents, it is God's pleasure to give.  What parent among us cannot understand the meaning of those words.  What brings more pleasure than to give or to do for your children or other loved ones.  That is how God loves us and accepts us, giving us God's kingdom of peace and joy with God's very self. Now, quite frequently, people tend to see the end of today's gospel reading as threat when they hear the words about a thief breaking in.  However, I really appreciate Richard Rohr's understanding of these words.  He says these words are not threat.  In fact, the opposite is true because God's kingdom is given to us and it is free.  In the latter part of this reading, what we need to hear is this:  God is like the loving, divine thief that breaks into our very soul because God loves us so very much.  And this God who breaks into our lives, our very soul, comes in surprising ways at surprising times in life.  I think the message for us on this day is such good news.  It is the message that you are to radically accept that you are radically accepted.  Jesus even says that God will come and wait on you.  As Richard Rohr says, “God is the servant of the soul, the deepest self.  But you need to go to that deep place, that place where God is always working to break into your life.  Quite honestly, if you don't go there, everything you do is quite superficial and nothing in your life of faith is going to change.”  And, by the way, that is another reason why I encourage you to participate in some form of Christian education this Fall so you are taken to that deeper place. Jesus' words to us continue as he tells us we need to be vigilant.  We need to keep alert and look for signs of the kingdom breaking through in our lives and in the world, signs of love and compassion and justice.  We must learn to read between the lines and see what is really happening in our lives, to intentionally look at what we are really doing.  We need to see and accept and learn from what we are doing, and maybe even change or be transformed!  But, to do this, we must go to that deeper place in our soul.  We have to ask, is what we are doing of ultimate importance?  As Richard Rohr says, “Most people are on cruise control and nothing in their life changes.  So, God has to break in like a divine thief.”  You see, God is always and forever giving.  Any change in this equation between us and God only comes from our side.  God is the divine giver.  So, are you ready to receive and accept that you are totally accepted?  Are you ready to go to that deep place within yourself, to spend time focusing on the God whose pleasure it is to give you the kingdom?  Are you ready to let go of your fear and place your faith and trust in this God who delights in you?  Oh yes, I really needed to hear these words on this day. Have no fear little flock, have no fear, little flock, For the Father has chosen to give you the Kingdom. Have no fear, little flock!

July 11, 2022 We find ourselves in situations and relationships where we suddenly are surprised by our reactions. They seem incongruent to who we really are. We may become silent, withdrawn, lash out, promise something we know we don't want to do or simply cannot do, or justify our response by blaming others. We become chaos. This is in great contrast to how we feel and respond in the world when we are free, when our true selves are fully present in the situation. Richard Rohr says, “remember, it's not the brand name that matters. It is that God's heart be made available and active on this earth.” Our “brand name” is our false self, trying to meet an expectation of the world or of ourselves, instead of allowing our heart to be made available and active on this earth. In this episode we will be identifying a situation or relationship where our brand, or the perception of us, matters most. We will try to understand the underlying motivation behind it, and let it go. So that our true selves can be set free from the cage, and our actions and interactions can be aligned with our heart.

As much as it might be difficult to believe, you are not your intellect, your power, your success, your ability to fit in at a party. You are not your ability to be happy, or healthy, or rich. It's your weaknesses that bring you into the upside down of God's values. When we let go of control, when we open our hands we are, as Richard Rohr writes,”in a very creative and liminal space where God is most free to act in our lives.” And that is faith: letting go of control, believing that the life of weakness is actually the life of the Most Blessed. Spend some time today considering Jesus's words in Matthew 5 and reflecting on what it might mean to tell the truth to yourself. -- Links “The Beatitudes” is a list of blessings Jesus bestows in his Sermon on the Mount in the gospel of Matthew, chapter 5.

On today's Bible Answer Man broadcast (06/15/22), Hank addresses an article he read that documents that gay teens make up 92 percent of HIV cases in their age group. But politically correct teachers and sex-ed curricula producers downplay the risks despite these statistics, which seems rather homophobic. They are doing a disservice to the very people that they profess to love and support. We need to speak the truth in love, not recoil from it fearing backlash from the politically correct. We have to be cultural change agents, which is what we at the Christian Research Institute seek to do as a ministry.Hank also answers the following questions:What are your thoughts on the Mystic tradition and Fr. Richard Rohr?Does God allow the devil to tempt us, or does He send him to tempt us, to show what we truly are?The topic of Enneagrams has been circulating throughout the body of Christ. Has CRI addressed this issue?
