In Defense of Kindness book author Bruce Reyes-Chow will be sharing on his breakthrough case of the virus in August 2021. A GenXer, Bruce was ordained to ministry of Word and Sacrament in 1995 in Stockton, CA. In 2008, the General Assembly of the PC(USA) elected him Moderator of the General Assembly at the youthful age of 39. An author, blogger, YouTuber, consultant, coach, podcaster, and sought after preacher and speaker, Bruce returned to pastoral ministry full time in 2019 as pastor of First Presbyterian in Palo Alto, CA. In 2021, his book, “In Defense of Kindness” was published by Chalice Press and, although fully-vaccinated and extremely careful, Bruce contracted a breakthrough case of the virus in August 2021. After months of recovery, Bruce will share about how he is processing what happened and how it shapes him as a person, spouse, father, pastor, friend, and leader.
Rev. John Bussman, pastor at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Cullman, AL joins host Rev. Timothy Appel to study Philippians 4:6-20. The church at Philippi had seen the Apostle Paul go through highs and lows during his ministry. As he writes his letter to them from prison, he proclaims to them the joy that remains theirs in Christ regardless of their circumstances. Because the LORD's return is near, Christians live differently in the world. We are freed from anxiousness and worry through the comfort that is ours in Christ. Prayer and supplication flows from our lips to our Father's throne of grace. His peace, given through the death and resurrection of Jesus, is our true guard from all evil. For that reason, our minds are occupied with all the good that He gives, as the Apostle learned and modeled from the Lord. Paul's joy continues to abound through the gift that the Philippians sent. He had learned to be content in every circumstance, whether full or hungry, whether he had plenty or he had need, for Christ was his strength. The Philippians' gift to him was another example of the fruit of faith that the Lord brought forth in them from the beginning of the gospel among them. Because of the richness of that gospel poured forth in Jesus Christ, Paul knew that they would have everything they need. That same comfort and confidence belongs to us as Christians today as we receive Christ's riches in Word and Sacrament. This is a rebroadcast from November 28, 2019.
Art of Suffering Show Notes: Episode 18The Catholic Church is bleeding out young people by the droves. Most millennials have not only abandoned the faith intellectually by age 13 but often bring that internal decision to reality by walking out within seven years of receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation in their early 20's. For the first time, Lauren Hadden shares her journey to Christ that was found in embracing her cross and finding freedom from the slavery of sins that had previously governed her life when she was the one sitting on the throne of her heart rather than Christ. As Matthew Kelly states in his book, I heard God Laugh – “The secret to supreme happiness is to strip away everything in your heart and set aside everything in your life that makes you less available to God, and then surrender yourself to His loving plan and cares.”Subscribe/RateNever miss out on the inspiration and healing of each episode by hitting the subscribe button RIGHT NOW!

Why do you fear Confession? This glorious Sacrament is offered to you from the tender Heart of our Lord. Through this glorious gift Jesus lifts the burdens you carry so that you can more fully share in His Mercy. If you understood this, there would be no hesitation in running to Confession on a regular basis. You would desire it not because it reveals your misery, but because it heals it and removes it forever (See Diary #1602).Try to spend time looking at your attitude toward the gift of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. If you see hesitancy within you, examine the reason. Is it fear of facing your sin? Is it fear of facing the priest? Fear should never be a factor. Let go of any fear you have by putting your eyes on the end result. That end result is freedom and union with God. This is a Mercy you need and will never regret receiving.Lord, please free me from the fear of this glorious Sacrament. Help me to see my sins honestly but only as I also gaze upon Your infinite Mercy. Give my heart a burning desire for this Mercy and a longing for the freedom it brings. I love You, dear Lord. Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: www.divinemercy.lifeCopyright © 2021 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved. Used with permission via RSS feed.

Allison Sullivan & Taylor Schroll kick off the show with a discussion of two words we often get confused: charity & love. They have the same root word, but have come to mean different things today. Next, they play their game of confessing strange or outlandish "sins" to one another and giving each other ridiculous penance for them. It's a game around the Sacrament of Confession ultimately meant to lead you to a real confessional. Finally, they close the show with a discussion on growing deeper in friendship and the trust that that takes. We hope you enjoy this week's episode!

As Catholics, we believe in the forgiveness of our sins through the graces of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. But often, even though we are absolved but we can struggle to forgive ourselves for our past faults and failings. Today, Fr. Mike shares the main reason why we struggle to let go of the past and surrender to God who is our loving Father. What does God want this Advent? Simple. He wants you. He wants a personal encounter with you. This year, journey through Advent with "Rejoice! Finding Your Place in the Advent Story," and learn about the places, people, and events that shaped the story of the very first Advent and shape our own lives today: https://tinyurl.com/yh2sexdw

Keith Erekson is an award-winning author, teacher, and public historian who has published on topics including politics, hoaxes, Abraham Lincoln, Elvis Presley, and Church history. He enjoys speaking at Latter-day Saint conferences and events, including BYU Education Week and RootsTech. Keith grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, served a mission in Brazil, and earned advanced degrees in history and business. For seven years he directed the Church History Library, overseeing expanded online research access and enriched public exhibits, and now works for the Church History Department in efforts to encourage outreach and historical engagement. In this podcast, Kurt and Keith dive into concepts in Keith's book, Real vs. Rumor: How to Dispel Latter-day Myths. Highlights 5:40 Dispelling false history and rumors can help eliminate negative church culture. 6:00 Girls camp story 10:35 Always read the scriptures, talks, etc. in context. Make sure you aren't changing the meaning. 12:45 There are many things that are true but not useful. We can use Church history but that doesn't mean it's useful for the building of our faith and learning. 14:30 Be careful when quoting someone. When quoting make sure to use exact words and the name of the author. Study the context around the quote. 19:20 What should bishops do when you hear someone misquoting in Sacrament meeting or in Sunday School? 22:00 How to go about correcting others and dealing with myths. Always correct with love and the spirit. Correct them only if you have the accurate information or an exact quote. It's about helping each other out rather than proving each other wrong. If you feel like someone's quoting is off, look it up yourself. 28:00 If you feel the urge to share a quote but don't have all the pieces, go home and do your homework first. Find all the missing pieces before you share with everyone. 30:00 Use multiple quotes to prove a concept. You can't just use one quote to make your case. We have to be careful not to teach false doctrine. 36:35 People exaggerate historical events to make them more inspiring. Details get lost Details get added to a story 43:25 Magical thinking: We blow up our stories or historical events and make them seem magical. The gospel should make us look inward. It's not about an outward show. 48:00 Projecting opinions: The scripts that we have are usually built on assumptions. We are acting on assumptions not information. 51:00 Many people are questioning their faith based on information, a historical event, or a quote. We often leap to conclusions and don't know how to think about things correctly. Treat historical events with history tools not church tools. Learn about how history works. 54:00 Change your script to learning: Take in new information with the intent to learn from it instead of letting it take a toll on your faith.
