Today on Louisiana Considered: Find out when and where you can adopt a pet during the upcoming “Empty the Shelters” event. We also hear about the race to take over State Sen. Karen Carter Peterson's former seat, and look back on a conversation about Southern Jewish history. This episode of Louisiana Considered originally aired on Monday, Sept. 26, 2022. To hear the full episode, click the “play” button above.   Pet adoption fees will be reduced at six animal shelters in Louisiana during the first week of October as part of the BISSELL Pet Foundation's nationwide "Empty the Shelters" event. BISSELL marketing specialist Brittany Schlacter and director of operations for the Northshore Humane Society Alex Coogan tell us more about the importance of animal rescue and adoption.   But first, we discuss the upcoming election. All eyes will be on the congressional midterms this fall. But reports indicate that State Sen. Karen Carter Peterson's abrupt departure from the legislature will set up an intriguing special election this fall that will pit two well-known progressive politicians — Mandie Landry and Royce Duplessis — against each other. Capitol Access reporter Paul Braun gives us a preview of this upcoming election.   Sunday's sunset marked the beginning of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. As people of the Jewish faith gather for services or simply reflect on the past year, we wanted to look back at a discussion on the South's deep and dynamic Jewish history.   Back in June, Louisiana Considered Managing producer Alana Schreiber spoke with Kenneth Hoffman, executive director of the Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience, just ahead of their grand opening celebration. Today we give that conversation a second listen.   Today's episode of Louisiana Considered was hosted by Karen Henderson. Our managing producer is Alana Schreiber and our digital editor is Katelyn Umholtz. Our engineers are Garrett Pittman, Aubry Procell, and Thomas Walsh.    You can listen to Louisiana Considered Monday through Friday at 12:00 and 7:30 pm.

Deuteronomy 31 NLT read aloud by Simon MacFarlane. 1 When Moses had finished giving these instructions to all the people of Israel, 2 he said, “I am now 120 years old, and I am no longer able to lead you. The Lord has told me, ‘You will not cross the Jordan River.' 3 But the Lord your God himself will cross over ahead of you. He will destroy the nations living there, and you will take possession of their land. Joshua will lead you across the river, just as the Lord promised. 4 “The Lord will destroy the nations living in the land, just as he destroyed Sihon and Og, the kings of the Amorites. 5 The Lord will hand over to you the people who live there, and you must deal with them as I have commanded you. 6 So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” 7 Then Moses called for Joshua, and as all Israel watched, he said to him, “Be strong and courageous! For you will lead these people into the land that the Lord swore to their ancestors he would give them. You are the one who will divide it among them as their grants of land. 8 Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.” 9 So Moses wrote this entire body of instruction in a book and gave it to the priests, who carried the Ark of the Lord's Covenant, and to the elders of Israel. 10 Then Moses gave them this command: “At the end of every seventh year, the Year of Release, during the Festival of Shelters, 11 you must read this Book of Instruction to all the people of Israel when they assemble before the Lord your God at the place he chooses. 12 Call them all together—men, women, children, and the foreigners living in your towns—so they may hear this Book of Instruction and learn to fear the Lord your God and carefully obey all the terms of these instructions. 13 Do this so that your children who have not known these instructions will hear them and will learn to fear the Lord your God. Do this as long as you live in the land you are crossing the Jordan to occupy.” 14 Then the Lord said to Moses, “The time has come for you to die. Call Joshua and present yourselves at the Tabernacle, so that I may commission him there.” So Moses and Joshua went and presented themselves at the Tabernacle. 15 And the Lord appeared to them in a pillar of cloud that stood at the entrance to the sacred tent. 16 The Lord said to Moses, “You are about to die and join your ancestors. After you are gone, these people will begin to worship foreign gods, the gods of the land where they are going. They will abandon me and break my covenant that I have made with them. 17 Then my anger will blaze forth against them. I will abandon them, hiding my face from them, and they will be devoured. Terrible trouble will come down on them, and on that day they will say, ‘These disasters have come down on us because God is no longer among us!' 18 At that time I will hide my face from them on account of all the evil they commit by worshiping other gods.

Look around you. What do you see? A lot of stuff? Material objects? Now, think about where those things are going to go after they have served their purpose. We're willing to bet that most of those items will end up in a landfill or in the ocean. Our system, as it stands, follows a linear path of waste management where an item is produced, used, and thrown away. We humans are more innovative than that. We can work to blaze that linear path into a circle. Angela Abshier, Founder of Sail to Shelter, joins Jenna for this episode of the Sea Change Podcast to discuss just that, innovating solutions to give new life to materials that were destined for a landfill. Sail to Shelter is a nonprofit organization working to extend the utility of high performance sails by thinking of them like a building material. Together with architects, engineers, sailmakers, and fabric technicians, they are creating solutions for the ever growing humanitarian crises occurring around the world.

Deuteronomy 16 NLT read aloud by Simon MacFarlane. 1 “In honor of the Lord your God, celebrate the Passover each year in the early spring, in the month of Abib, for that was the month in which the Lord your God brought you out of Egypt by night. 2 Your Passover sacrifice may be from either the flock or the herd, and it must be sacrificed to the Lord your God at the designated place of worship—the place he chooses for his name to be honored. 3 Eat it with bread made without yeast. For seven days the bread you eat must be made without yeast, as when you escaped from Egypt in such a hurry. Eat this bread—the bread of suffering—so that as long as you live you will remember the day you departed from Egypt. 4 Let no yeast be found in any house throughout your land for those seven days. And when you sacrifice the Passover lamb on the evening of the first day, do not let any of the meat remain until the next morning. 5 “You may not sacrifice the Passover in just any of the towns that the Lord your God is giving you. 6 You must offer it only at the designated place of worship—the place the Lord your God chooses for his name to be honored. Sacrifice it there in the evening as the sun goes down on the anniversary of your exodus from Egypt. 7 Roast the lamb and eat it in the place the Lord your God chooses. Then you may go back to your tents the next morning. 8 For the next six days you may not eat any bread made with yeast. On the seventh day proclaim another holy day in honor of the Lord your God, and no work may be done on that day. 9 “Count off seven weeks from when you first begin to cut the grain at the time of harvest. 10 Then celebrate the Festival of Harvest to honor the Lord your God. Bring him a voluntary offering in proportion to the blessings you have received from him. 11 This is a time to celebrate before the Lord your God at the designated place of worship he will choose for his name to be honored. Celebrate with your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, the Levites from your towns, and the foreigners, orphans, and widows who live among you. 12 Remember that you were once slaves in Egypt, so be careful to obey all these decrees. 13 “You must observe the Festival of Shelters for seven days at the end of the harvest season, after the grain has been threshed and the grapes have been pressed. 14 This festival will be a happy time of celebrating with your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, and the Levites, foreigners, orphans, and widows from your towns. 15 For seven days you must celebrate this festival to honor the Lord your God at the place he chooses, for it is he who blesses you with bountiful harvests and gives you success in all your work. This festival will be a time of great joy for all. 16 “Each year every man in Israel must celebrate these three festivals: the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the Festival of Harvest, and the Festival of Shelters. On each of these occasions, all men must appear before the Lord your God at the place he chooses, but they must not appear before the Lord without a gift for him. 17 All must give as they are able, according to the blessings given to them by the Lord your God. 18 “Appoint judges and officials for yourselves from each of your tribes in all the towns the Lord your God is giving you. They must judge the people fairly. 19 You must never twist justice or show partiality. Never accept a bribe, for bribes blind the eyes of the wise and corrupt the decisions of the godly.[...]

Scripture Reading: John 6:59-71 & John 7:1-9 (a prior version of the blog said 7:1-36, but I want to slow down a bit this week) 59 Jesus said these things while he was teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum. 60 Then many of his disciples, when they heard these things, said, “This is a difficult saying! Who can understand it?” 61 When Jesus was aware that his disciples were complaining about this, he said to them, “Does this cause you to be offended? 62 Then what if you see the Son of Man ascending where he was before? 63 The Spirit is the one who gives life; human nature is of no help! The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. 64 But there are some of you who do not believe.” (For Jesus had already known from the beginning who those were who did not believe, and who it was who would betray him.) 65 So Jesus added, “Because of this I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has allowed him to come.”66 After this many of his disciples quit following him and did not accompany him any longer. 67 So Jesus said to the Twelve, “You don't want to go away too, do you?” 68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69 We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God!” 70 Jesus replied, “Didn't I choose you, the Twelve, and yet one of you is the devil?” 71 (Now he said this about Judas son of Simon Iscariot, for Judas, one of the Twelve, was going to betray him.)7 After this Jesus traveled throughout Galilee. He stayed out of Judea because the Jewish leaders wanted to kill him. 2 Now the Jewish Feast of Shelters was near. 3 So Jesus' brothers advised him, “Leave here and go to Judea so your disciples may see your miracles that you are performing. 4 For no one who seeks to make a reputation for himself does anything in secret. If you are doing these things, show yourself to the world.” 5 (For not even his own brothers believed in him.)6 So Jesus replied, “My time has not yet arrived, but you are ready at any opportunity! 7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I am testifying about it that its deeds are evil. 8 You go up to the feast yourselves. I am not going up to this feast because my time has not yet fully arrived.” 9 When he had said this, he remained in Galilee.Main ThemesThis Is a Difficult Saying!So far (last session) we knew that Jesus was giving the discourse about the bread of life in Capernaum. In verse 59, John narrows down the setting. Jesus is at the synagogue. And this is certainly not his first time receiving a wide audience there. Recall Mark 2:1-121 Now after some days, when he returned to Capernaum, the news spread that he was at home. 2 So many gathered that there was no longer any room, not even by the door, and he preached the word to them. 3 Some people came bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them. 4 When they were not able to bring him in because of the crowd, they removed the roof above Jesus. Then, after tearing it out, they lowered the stretcher the paralytic was lying on. 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” 6 Now some of the experts in the law were sitting there, turning these things over in their minds: 7 “Why does this man speak this way? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?” 8 Now immediately, when Jesus realized in his spirit that they were contemplating such thoughts, he said to them, “Why are you thinking such things in your hearts? 9 Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, ‘Stand up, take your stretcher, and walk'? 10 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins,”—he said to the paralytic— 11 “I tell you, stand up, take your stretcher, and go home.” 12 And immediately the man stood up, took his stretcher, and went out in front of them all. They were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!”Synagogues were community centers, the use of which was not restricted to Saturdays. Also recall that in the Gospel of John the main opposition to Jesus has come from religious leaders, who would naturally control the synagogue.In this religious and adversarial context—but also a context in which Jesus has proven himself—the audience responds, “This is a difficult saying! Who can understand it?” There is, ironically, a difficulty of translation here. The word “difficult” connotes harshness and difficulty in following rather than a comprehension barrier. The second question, regarding understanding, can also be translated as, “Who is able to hear?” That is, who is able to heed such words. This makes sense of Jesus reply. Jesus does not call them dummies; he accuses them of being offended. The audience understood but rejected the lesson. The word for offended can also be translated as “stumble.” This term is used in the Bible and outside of it to refer to apostasy or “falling away.” Put simply, Jesus is asking whether his followers will follow him or desert him.Jesus ups the ante. “Then what if you see the Son of Man ascending where he was before?” What if they see Jesus ascending into heaven? Would more proof that Jesus is speaking the truth change their mind or would it cause a greater rejection? Forgive my pop culture reference, but the following Joan Osborne song lyrics come to mindIf God had a face what would it look like?And would you want to seeIf seeing meant that you would have to believeIn things like heaven and in Jesus and the SaintsAnd all the prophets?Jesus offers hope though. How can you heed his words? Can you comply with such a hard teaching? You must have the Spirit! The teaching is not that harsh after all. To eat the flesh and drink the blood of Jesus is to partake in his eternal life by being filled with the Spirit. This, in fact, is not harsh at all. It is an offer of a free gift!How can I get the Spirit then? Listen to Jesus' words, the Spirit and life are found there (v. 63). “This is the deed God requires—to believe in the one whom he sent.” This is the recurring theme of John's gospel. How can we share in Jesus? How can we be saved? How can we have eternal life? How can we do what God requires of us? Believe. If Jesus is who he says he is, and he does what he says he will do, he has everything covered.Many Depart but Peter ConfessesMany of those in the same crowd that was ready to force Jesus into kingship reject him. Jesus offers his disciples the chance to do the same. There is no coercion. To paraphrase, “If this is too difficult for you, you can leave too. In fact, one of you will.” Notice that Jesus is fully aware of his impending betrayal. Jesus is not surprised by the cross. He is steadily walking towards it, even by choosing his own betrayer.Peter does not reject Jesus. He confesses instead, “you are the Holy One of God.” This is a title for God himself in the Old Testament. In the Old Testament it is often said a little differently, “the Holy One of Israel.” I could provide many, many examples, but here is just one from Psalms 71:22:I will express my thanks to you with a stringed instrument,praising your faithfulness, O my God.I will sing praises to you accompanied by a harp,O Holy One of Israel.The same term (Holy One of God) could function as a title for a servant of God. So, very much in John's style, I think this is another beautiful double entendre. Jesus is both God and a servant of God. He is the Word and he does the will of the Father.To Whom Would We Go—A Personal NotePeter asks such a poignant question, “to whom would we go?” Anyone participating in this Bible study can hopefully see that I have endeavored to stay close to the text. Here, I would like to add a personal note. To the extent it is unhelpful, simply disregard it.I was not raised in a Christian home or in a Christian culture. I was an outspoken atheist by the time I was in my late teens. I can clearly remember my atheistic worldview. Looking back I realize my worldview was “full of holes” and it was quite empty too. I will explain using a not-so-quick analogy.The AnalogyAssume for just a brief moment that I were a good mechanic (I am not). You come to me with a problem. This morning, as you backed up your car to head to work, you noticed there was a puddle right under the car. The puddle is not very large. The liquid is greenish, but parts of it seem gold too. The pavement underneath is quite dark, so you have a hard time discerning how dark the liquid itself is.I am a good mechanic, so I quickly come up with some options. It could be water, oil, coolant, and transmission fluid. I theorize that water would have evaporated by the morning and scratch it off the list. I also know that transmission fluid is dark red, so it's probably not the right answer. Now the answer is narrowed down to two possibilities: oil or coolant. Coolant is generally green, but if spread thin on dark pavement it can look yellowish. Oil looks yellow, unless dirty. Then it looks black. Your car is old, you haven't changed the oil in a few thousand miles, so the oil would probably look black. The best explanation for your mystery puddle is coolant.Now further assume another mechanic is there too. He argues, almost as convincingly, that oil is the best explanation. A few thousand miles is not enough to turn oil black, he says, and the car, although old, is not burning any oil.After we are done theorizing about the puddle, we move on to a different topic. You tell me that your car has been running hot. Oh dear, that leaves quite a few possibilities. The problem could lie in the radiator, belts, hoses, oil, cooling system, water pump, and bad thermostat. Now, you probably already want to pick one particular solution given the prior paragraphs. Please, for a moment, refrain. Assume that I, the brilliant mechanic, again engage in my Holmesian deductive process while also ignoring everything mentioned in the prior paragraphs. I review all the evidence carefully and conclude the problem is in the cooling system. But that wretched other mechanic is still available to second-guess my conclusion. He believes the best explanation for the car overheating is the thermostat—in fact, the car is not overheating at all. We both lay out our evidence and either conclusion seems likely.Finally, you tell me another odd story. The car smells funny. “Funny,” I ask, “how?” Well, it's not an unpleasant smell. A little sweet. Again, I know you (the reader) are dying to jump to a conclusion. Hold your horses for one more minute. While ignoring the prior paragraphs, I theorize about all the possible causes. Then I lay out a sound and thorough argument as to why the most probable explanation for that smell is a coolant leak. At this point the other mechanic scoffs at me. There are a thousand possible explanations for an odd, faintly sweet smell. From spilled soda to air freshener. Any firm conclusion is certainly unwarranted, he convincingly argues.Now, let's retell the story a different way. You come to me, the mechanic, with the following issues: there was a greenish, yellowish puddle under the car, the car is getting hot, and there is a faintly sweet smell in the car. The solution is obviously a coolant leak. To quote our former president, “I know it, you know it, everyone knows it.”At this point let's make two observations. When the symptoms are isolated, one can have reasonable debates as to the best explanation of each. When the symptoms are conjoined, the best explanation is inarguable.The ApplicationOk, so what does my little story have to do with anything? It seems to me that reality suffers from several “symptoms.” These are facts of the world that are almost undeniable while at the same time being puzzling. The universe seems to have a beginning. There are powerful scientific reasons to believe this—but frankly this is a fact wholly within our own common sense. If time is infinite in the past, how would we have reached this very moment? Why has energy not fully devolved into heat if the universe exists eternally in the past? The universe seems oddly fine-tuned for life. The more we learn about the universe, the more we realize that if the very fundamental rules of the universe (like the gravitational force) were any different, life could not exist. I am not talking about human life—no life could exist. But the symptoms get stranger. There seems to be good and evil. Not just good. Not just evil. The view that everything is how it should be can account for good but not evil. The view that matter is all that exists and life is meaningless can account for neither. There seems to be minds that have intentionality. If someone steals my wallet, I blame the criminal. I really do blame the criminal. I don't blame some unguided chain of events that inevitably resulted in that outcome. There seems to be beauty. The view that beauty is in the eye of the beholder is sheer nonsense—we might not say it, but we all know this. Taste might be in the eye of the beholder. A person can have bad taste and like the ugly, but that doesn't make the ugly into beautiful. Shockingly, mathematics—a completely abstract concept—seems to describe the physical reality. Math would exist even if no time, matter, or space existed. It is untethered from the universe, and yet it can elegantly summarize the universe's workings. People seem to have inherent worth. And people seem to have a higher worth than animals, so the mere possession of brain function does not seem to entirely explain people's worth. Life seems to have purpose. Take the Star Wars philosophy—the force always returns to balance. That view can account for good and evil, but it eliminates any sense of purpose. A life may seem to have a purpose but history as a whole has no arch. And because of that, neither does life if considered within the wider framework.Forgive my stream of conscience above, but it accurately reflects the quandary. Sure, naturalism might be able to explain fine-tuning by positing a multiverse, but it can't explain good and evil. Sure, some form of Taoism could account for good and evil, but it can't account for purpose. Sure, new ageism exalting the divine nature of individuals can account for people's inherent worth, but it struggles to explain the way people intentionally hurt one another, much less what should be done about it. And so allow me to repeat Peter's question, “If not Christ, to whom will I go?”Christ was not my default choice. I was not raised to believe in him. Nonetheless, the more I realize how he explains every “symptom” of the universe the more I realize I could not not believe. What else would I believe? And notice I have not mentioned the most personal “symptom” of all. It seems to me I am not perfect; I am not good. Who can speak to me the words of life?The Feast of TabernaclesChapter 7 opens up with the Feast of Shelters, known by several other names but perhaps most popularly as the Feast of Tabernacles. I will present an edited version of the explanation given a Christian website:The Feast of Tabernacles, also known as the Feast of Booths and Sukkot, is the seventh and last feast that the Lord commanded Israel to observe and one of the three feasts that Jews were to observe each year by going to “appear before the Lord your God in the place which He shall choose” (Deuteronomy 16:16). . . . [I]t was at this time that Solomon's Temple was dedicated to the Lord (1 Kings 8:2).It was at the Feast of Tabernacles that the Israelites, who had returned to rebuild the temple, gathered to celebrate under the leadership of Joshua and Zerubbabel (Ezra 3). Later, the Jews heard Ezra read the Word of God to them during the Feast of Tabernacles (Nehemiah 8). Ezra's preaching resulted in a great revival as the Israelites confessed and repented of their sins. . . .The feast begins five days after the Day of Atonement and at the time the fall harvest had just been completed. It was a time of joyous celebration as the Israelites celebrated God's continued provision for them in the current harvest and remembered His provision and protection during the 40 years in the wilderness.As one of the three feasts that all “native born” male Jews were commanded to participate in . . . . As one of the pilgrim feasts (when Jewish males were commanded to go to Jerusalem), it was also the time when they brought their tithes and offerings to the Temple (Deuteronomy 16:16). . . . Thousands upon thousands of people coming together to remember and celebrate God's deliverance and His provision, all living in temporary shelters or booths as part of the requirements of the feast. . . .Lasting eight days, the Feast of Tabernacles begins and ends with a Sabbath day of rest. During the eight days of the feast, the Israelites would dwell in booths or tabernacles that were made from the branches of trees (Leviticus 23:40–42). . . .Leviticus 23:43 tells us the purpose of the festival, “so that your future generations may know that I made the Israelites live in shelters when I brought them out from the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God."Jesus and His BothersJudeans want to kill Jesus. Galileans are simply unwilling to follow. And Jesus' brothers are no exception. Although they have travelled with Jesus and his mother Mary, they do not trust Jesus' plan. This is disconcerting. Honoring kinship ties was extremely important in Jewish culture. For those closest to a teacher to disbelieve him could be seen as discrediting. At least one of Jesus' brothers (James) would later become a leader in the church, and this disbelief could be used against him. Yet John doesn't shy away from the disbelief of Jesus' brothers.What is the problem with Jesus going to Jerusalem and performing miracles in front of everyone? His time has not yet come. Notice, the time will come. There will come a moment when Jesus goes to Jerusalem, makes a public appearance, and allows his enemies to kill him. Not yet though. The point is reinforce: the cross is deliberate.Then comes the main point of these verses (1-9). The world cannot hate the world, and the world will hate the spirit. The verses do not include the word spirit, but that is the dualism that John returns to time and time again. This is a major theme in the Gospel of John and in the New Testament as a whole. The world has turned from what is good. The world has turned from its intended purpose to worship God, who is good. Whenever God or one of his followers points that out to the world, the world hates it. Otherwise the world would be confronted with its own guilt.

Simon reads the Bible

Numbers 29 NLT read aloud by Simon MacFarlane. 1 “Celebrate the Festival of Trumpets each year on the first day of the appointed month in early autumn. You must call an official day for holy assembly, and you may do no ordinary work. 2 On that day you must present a burnt offering as a pleasing aroma to the Lord. It will consist of one young bull, one ram, and seven one-year-old male lambs, all with no defects. 3 These must be accompanied by grain offerings of choice flour moistened with olive oil—six quarts with the bull, four quarts with the ram, 4 and two quarts with each of the seven lambs. 5 In addition, you must sacrifice a male goat as a sin offering to purify yourselves and make yourselves right with the Lord. 6 These special sacrifices are in addition to your regular monthly and daily burnt offerings, and they must be given with their prescribed grain offerings and liquid offerings. These offerings are given as a special gift to the Lord, a pleasing aroma to him. 7 “Ten days later, on the tenth day of the same month, you must call another holy assembly. On that day, the Day of Atonement, the people must go without food and must do no ordinary work. 8 You must present a burnt offering as a pleasing aroma to the Lord. It will consist of one young bull, one ram, and seven one-year-old male lambs, all with no defects. 9 These offerings must be accompanied by the prescribed grain offerings of choice flour moistened with olive oil—six quarts of choice flour with the bull, four quarts of choice flour with the ram, 10 and two quarts of choice flour with each of the seven lambs. 11 You must also sacrifice one male goat for a sin offering. This is in addition to the sin offering of atonement and the regular daily burnt offering with its grain offering, and their accompanying liquid offerings. 12 “Five days later, on the fifteenth day of the same month, you must call another holy assembly of all the people, and you may do no ordinary work on that day. It is the beginning of the Festival of Shelters, a seven-day festival to the Lord. 13 On the first day of the festival, you must present a burnt offering as a special gift, a pleasing aroma to the Lord. It will consist of thirteen young bulls, two rams, and fourteen one-year-old male lambs, all with no defects. 14 Each of these offerings must be accompanied by a grain offering of choice flour moistened with olive oil—six quarts for each of the thirteen bulls, four quarts for each of the two rams, 15 and two quarts for each of the fourteen lambs. 16 You must also sacrifice a male goat as a sin offering, in addition to the regular burnt offering with its accompanying grain offering and liquid offering. 17 “On the second day of this seven-day festival, sacrifice twelve young bulls, two rams, and fourteen one-year-old male lambs, all with no defects. 18 Each of these offerings of bulls, rams, and lambs must be accompanied by its prescribed grain offering and liquid offering. 19 You must also sacrifice a male goat as a sin offering, in addition to the regular burnt offering with its accompanying grain offering and liquid offering. 20 “On the third day of the festival, sacrifice eleven young bulls, two rams, and fourteen one-year-old male lambs, all with no defects. 21 Each of these offerings of bulls, rams, and lambs must be accompanied by its prescribed grain offering and liquid offering.

Voice of Truth is truly a labor of love. It was birthed during the pandemic when God brought together writers, artists, and editors from around the world. For nearly two years now, these incredible women have worked together on a voluntary basis to produce a magazine that shines a light on and for God's glory. We have had so much fun creating this publication, and we have rejoiced as God has made a way for it to be distributed worldwide! Voice of Truth has become in such great demand, however, that we need to change gears a bit regarding the distribution. In the future, although the digital version will still be free of charge to anyone who requests it, we will only be sending out a printed version as a thank you to each of our financial donors. So if you want to ensure that you will receive the NEXT edition of Voice of Truth, make sure you go to our website and register to give a recurring monthly donation of any amount. Women World Leaders is a 501c3 non-profit ministry, and our goal is to empower others to walk in their God-given purpose. We offer events, teachings, books, and leadership-growth opportunities, including a monthly Zoom meeting full of fellowship, empowerment, and fun. To find out how you can get involved, connect with us on our website – womenworldleaders.com, or send us an email at info@womenworldleaders.com On this, our Wednesday edition of the Women World Leaders podcast, we are currently walking through the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. So as we dive in, I invite you to open your Bibles, or, if you are driving or walking or even doing dishes, simply open your heart as we allow God to teach and guide us. Before we begin, let's pray. Dear Most Holy God! We thank you for always meeting us where we are and teaching us exactly what we need to know. I pray for each listener today, that you will speak directly to her – as only you can. God, may the words of my mouth and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable to you. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen. Today's reading comes from John 7:1-13 from the New Living Translation. 7 After this, Jesus traveled around Galilee. He wanted to stay out of Judea, where the Jewish leaders were plotting his death.  Scholars believe that at this time, Jesus had spent many months in Galilee. His opposition had grown feistier and more vocal. Jesus clearly knew WHY He had been sent to earth and HOW His life would end. He had told the disciples time and again that He would be killed and raised on the third day, and in today's passage, we see it clearly delineated that Jesus was committed to following God's perfect timeline – even knowing it would end in His fleshly demise. Jesus walked God's timeline in faith. As we listen today, I want you and I to consider whether we walk God's timeline in faith. Do I really trust that God is using all I am going through today for His purpose? Do I believe that my seemingly insignificant work is contributing to God's perfect plan in a way I can't quite comprehend? Can I put my faith completely in a God whose timing is beyond my scope of understanding? Do I walk God's timeline in faith? My second daughter graduated from college yesterday. She is twenty years old, and as I took my morning walk before going to the ceremony yesterday, I reflected on the last twenty years. Emily began preschool when she was 2. We went to meet her teacher before the year began, and, let's just say, I knew from the moment I walked in the door that her assigned teacher was NOT a good fit. When we left an hour later, I knew we wouldn't be back, and I am NOT one to change plans easily. I had previously put my daughter's name on several preschool wait lists, so I knew there were no openings anywhere. But God had a plan, and His timing was perfect. That afternoon, I received a call from a different school – a spot had opened up. We went right over and met Ms. Theresa – a beautiful woman who helped shape my two-year-old Emily into the twenty-year-old college graduate that God knew she would be. I cannot BEGIN to tell you the marvels of God's perfect provision and timing that made a way for Emily to walk across that stage yesterday and receive her diploma. If you are a parent, I know you understand. But you don't have to be a parent to see God at work. When significant milestones happen in your life, I encourage you to look back on God's provision and timing. And you don't even have to wait for a milestone. Simply think about how God brought you to where you are today. As you do, you will be amazed at how God orchestrated things to make sure they turned out EXACTLY as they were supposed to. We serve a faithful God whose timeline we can trust. We simply need to walk God's timeline in faith. Jesus knew the Jewish leaders were plotting His death, but He trusted God's timeline, and He walked in faith. Even when it wasn't comfortable and He had little support around Him. Verse 2… 2 But soon it was time for the Jewish Festival of Shelters, 3 and Jesus' brothers said to him, “Leave here and go to Judea, where your followers can see your miracles! 4 You can't become famous if you hide like this! If you can do such wonderful things, show yourself to the world!” 5 For even his brothers didn't believe in him. The Jewish Festival of Shelters – also called the Festival of the Tabernacles or Booths – was a time of joyous celebration! It occurred in October and was a time for Jewish people to travel to Jerusalem together in large family groups. They went for a week to give food offerings to God and to celebrate how God released their ancestors into freedom from slavery in Egypt. In Deuteronomy 16, the Jewish people are commanded to “Be joyful” at the festival, “For the Lord your God will bless you in all your harvest and in all the work of your hands, and your joy will be complete.” It was a festival of remembering the goodness of God and celebrating that which was to come in God's perfect timing and provision. It was a festival where they received encouragement and resolve to walk God's timeline in faith for the coming year. Jesus' brothers, who after His death and resurrection, by the way, became some of His greatest advocates, at this time were kind of making fun of Jesus. They were following the world – saying, ‘Jesus – you think you're all that. Come on with us to Jerusalem where people will see you and you can put your money where your mouth is!' Verse 6… 6 Jesus replied, “Now is not the right time for me to go, but you can go anytime. 7 The world can't hate you, but it does hate me because I accuse it of doing evil. 8 You go on. I'm not going[a] to this festival, because my time has not yet come.” 9 After saying these things, Jesus remained in Galilee. These verses make me sad for Jesus. These were His people from birth, His family, and yet they were belittling Him and laughing at Him. They didn't understand who He was, nor did they want to. They were going to Jerusalem for a party, a Festival, to honor and praise God … but before they went they teased God Himself, their true Messiah. But Jesus didn't let this stop Him from following God's timeline in faith. “Now is not the right time for me to go…” – what He was really saying was, it was not in God's timeline at that moment for Him to show Himself publicly in Jerusalem. Verse 10 continues… 10 But after his brothers left for the festival, Jesus also went, though secretly, staying out of public view.  It is ALWAYS time to honor God! And it is always the right time to declare our faith in His perfect timeline. So Jesus went to celebrate and honor God – while He put Himself in the background. God sees you, and He knows everything that you are going through. God created time for us so that our minds can understand sequences and see His glorious unfolding provision set before us. But God's ways are higher than our ways and His vision is perfect. We see and experience things in a linear fashion, with the passing of time, but God already knows the ending and can see all of time in His single vision. I've heard it described that we are like a canoer going down a stream. We see the scenery as it passes by us. But God is like the airplane pilot flying above – able to look down and see the whole stream and all the river in one shot. God saw Jesus waiting, alone; and He saw His upcoming suffering and death on a cross; but God also saw Jesus' resurrection from the dead and His payment for sins; AND God saw what WE have not yet experienced – our eternal joy as we live with God unhindered by sin, and in complete harmony with all His children. For us – that salvation is at the end of the stream, but in God's sight, our salvation is NOW, because Jesus' work is finished. Jesus' life was hard! And sometimes lonely. But there was a purpose – God had the perfect plan. Jesus just had to walk God's timeline in faith. Neither my daughter Emily nor I understood HOW God would perfectly piece together her many teachers and experiences over the years, but God had the perfect plan for her to end up walking across that stage and receiving her diploma yesterday. She just had to walk God's timeline in faith. You may not be able to see the other side of the mountain you are up against. But God does! And He is faithfully leading you down each path full of accomplishments for His glory. Trust God, and walk His timeline for you in faith AND in joy! By faith, keep your eyes on the glorious outcome God has for you, even though it may likely get harder before it gets easier…Verse 11 continues… 11 The Jewish leaders tried to find him at the festival and kept asking if anyone had seen him. 12 There was a lot of grumbling about him among the crowds. Some argued, “He's a good man,” but others said, “He's nothing but a fraud who deceives the people.” 13 But no one had the courage to speak favorably about him in public, for they were afraid of getting in trouble with the Jewish leaders. That's not a very happy ending to our reading today. But thankfully, that isn't the end of the story. And whatever chapter you are in isn't the end either. God's ways ARE higher than our ways, His sight is crisper than our sight, and His love, provision, and guidance are perfect. You WILL walk across that stage. You WILL cross the finish line. You CAN trust in faith God's perfect timing. Jesus did! And He did it for you! Let's pray. Dear Most Holy God – thank you for your perfect timing and provision. We are awed that all we have to do is obediently trust you and take the next step. Father, we are so blessed that you love us so much. Yours is a love that we cannot begin to comprehend. And we are so grateful that you consider it your joy to lavish your love on us each and every day. Father – we hold out our arms, and we accept your shower of grace and love. And we walk your perfect timeline in perseverance and joy, knowing in our hearts that the ending is more glorious than we could possibly imagine. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
