For Barbara Condron, dreaming is as basic as greeting someone new and as intricate as creating with a global network of people. Dreaming is an advanced form of communication accessible while awake and asleep. An author, teacher, and internationally-known speaker, since age 6, Barbara's life focus has been the power of dreams to direct the course of a life. She has interpreted over 35,000 dreams for people of all ages from all walks of life in 30 countries. She has presented her research eight times at the International Association for the Study of Dreams conference. Her topics range from “Dream Scripts for Tweens Reaching Youth by Making Dreaming a Selfie” to “What Happens When Choirs Dream Together” to “The NEW BARDO - Clear Light Legacy in Dad's Dementia”. Barbara Condron joins host Denise Griffitts to share: LUCID DREAMS ... what lucid dreaming is and why it is a topic that is a trend all unto itself. (I will share how we met as a result of my recent podcast with Brian Bogert where I mentioned lucid dreaming as an aside and an introduction was made!) CREATIVE MIND ... The distinction between body-intelligence and mind-intelligence. From biorhythms to the unique vibration that is you - think fingerprints ;) COMMUNICATION ... in any, all forms ...

Russia has faced a dizzying series of setbacks in its war with Ukraine over the last week: - Sweden and Finland are being fast-tracked into NATO membership, which means Russia will soon share an 810-mile border with NATO. More from NYT - Ukrainian troops pushed the Russians from the outskirts of Kharkiv, Ukraine's second largest city, and are now approaching the Russian border. Latest from Reuters - Russia suffered “catastrophic” losses during a failed river crossing on May 11, according to The Institute for the Study of War, which notes that “the military incompetence displayed in that crossing have shaken the confidence” of influential Russian military bloggers. - The UK Ministry of Defense said that the Russian offensive in the eastern Donbas region, the focus of Russian firepower since its retreat from Kyiv, has “lost momentum and fallen significantly behind schedule.” The Brits also claimed that Putin has lost one-third of the troops he sent into Ukraine since the start of the February invasion. On Sunday, Jens Stoltenberg, NATO's secretary general, summed up the implications of these developments: “Ukraine can win this war.” And that is exactly the problem according to a growing number of western officials and analysts who fear the fallout from what French President Emmanuel Macron called the “humiliation” of Russia.

On the third day of our series on pursuing simple Christianity, we're looking at what it means to live a life of sacrifice to God. May we discover what it means for our hearts, minds and will to be fully surrendered to Jesus, and in return may we find the abundant joy he has promised. He is trustworthy and true. And we will find the life God has planned for us when we surrender all to him. Our Scripture for today comes from Luke 9:23, and today's worship is Refiner by Maverick City Music. -- Faith doesn't happen on its own. It's a byproduct of time spent experiencing the faithfulness of our God. It's a gift given to us by the Giver of good gifts, himself. It was a supernatural faith that allowed Paul to sing even while in chains. It was supernatural faith that allowed Peter to proclaim the gospel, even unto death. And it's supernatural faith that will carry you to and through the greatest gospel opportunities in front of you. We pray our printed devotionals, Faith and Trust, help people like you experience the life changing reality that faith and trust have on your everyday life. With Faith you'll: Discover a Biblical framework for living faithfully Study powerful moments of God's faithfulness in scripture Tear down personal strongholds in your life where you struggle with faith Develop a lifestyle of faith, that weathers the storms of life And every dollar you give today goes to help more people like you experience the nearness and love of our God. Everything changes when we learn to trust and become filled with faith in our good, good God. Get your copy at supportfirst15.org!
Ezekiel 33:30-33, Amos 8:11-12, Joel 2:21-27 / May 16-18, 2022 The bold proclamation of God's Word has been replaced with shallow substitutes designed to entertain rather than convict. It's time to “restore the years” that the locusts have eaten. From the Series: The Church Awakening: An Urgent Call for Renewal read more
Speaker: Marshall Albritton These verses show that God's love toward us, which we are to imitate and express toward others, is marked by two characteristics: initiative and sacrifice. Grace Community Church exists to build spiritually healthy people for ministry in the world. One of the ways that we pursue this mission is by gathering each Sunday for corporate worship, prayer, and biblical teaching. The corporate nature of this gathering is both edifying to the believer and a witness of God's grace to the world. Sermon speaker is Scott Patty unless otherwise noted.

As we continue our week exploring the simple principles of the Christian faith, today let's look at what it means to love people. Many of us know that God asks us to love others, but often loving people is easier said than done. God knows our weaknesses, and any command he gives, he has a plan to empower us and give us grace to be obedient. As you explore how God may want you to love people today, may your heart be opened to his profound grace. Our Scripture for today comes from 1 John 4:7, and today's worship is Love People by Chris Tomlin. -- Faith doesn't happen on its own. It's a byproduct of time spent experiencing the faithfulness of our God. It's a gift given to us by the Giver of good gifts, himself. It was a supernatural faith that allowed Paul to sing even while in chains. It was supernatural faith that allowed Peter to proclaim the gospel, even unto death. And it's supernatural faith that will carry you to and through the greatest gospel opportunities in front of you. We pray our printed devotionals, Faith and Trust, help people like you experience the life changing reality that faith and trust have on your everyday life.

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a two-part look at Torah parsha is "Emor," (Leviticus chapters 21 through 24) and, THIS week, what it means for the 'cohenim' or priesthood, to "be holy" -- no, "set apart", or qadosh -- because He is. And it is, indeed, a higher standard. The Erev Shabbat reading and outline of the parsha includes the specifics, from what they are to seek for wives to what NOT to do. And this portion includes a well-known description of HIS 'appointed times' (i.e., the REAL Holy Days) - and again makes clear that they are 'forever': https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/hebrewnation/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/14125107/SSM-5-13-22-Emor-teaching-podcast-xx.mp3 During the Sabbath day teaching this week, Mark asks a different question from the usual. Since His genuine priests are to be 'set apart' to Him, what does that say about a world where literally every aspect of His Word on that score is held in derision by most OF the world? Doesn't it seem ever more clear that there really IS a 'priesthood' of death that is not just set apart from any and everything associated with the Creator of the Universe, but that handles the Adversary's very different -- but obvious now! -- sacraments? And we had better be set apart from that. Especially if we understand what the Messiah has for us.

This week we're going to focus on the simplicity the Christian life is meant to be marked by. Jesus summed up our purpose with two statements: love God and love people. But in our humanity we have made complex what God designed to be peaceful, purposeful, and simple. A. W. Tozer remarks in The Pursuit of God, “Every age has its own characteristics. Right now we are in an age of religious complexity. The simplicity which is in Christ is rarely found among us. In its stead are programs, methods, organizations and a world of nervous activities which occupy time and attention but can never satisfy the longing of the heart. The shallowness of our inner experience, the hollowness of our worship, and that servile imitation of the world which marks our promotional methods all testify that we in this day, know God only imperfectly, and the peace of God scarcely at all. If we would find God amid all the religious externals, we must first determine to find Him, and then proceed in the way of simplicity.” May we discover the peace and joy that come from pursuing a simple Christianity this week. Our Scripture for today comes from Matthew 22:37-38, and today's worship is Every Praise by Hezekiah Walker. -- Faith doesn't happen on its own. It's a byproduct of time spent experiencing the faithfulness of our God. It's a gift given to us by the Giver of good gifts, himself. It was a supernatural faith that allowed Paul to sing even while in chains. It was supernatural faith that allowed Peter to proclaim the gospel, even unto death. And it's supernatural faith that will carry you to and through the greatest gospel opportunities in front of you. We pray our printed devotionals, Faith and Trust, help people like you experience the life changing reality that faith and trust have on your everyday life. With Faith you'll: Discover a Biblical framework for living faithfully Study powerful moments of God's faithfulness in scripture Tear down personal strongholds in your life where you struggle with faith Develop a lifestyle of faith, that weathers the storms of life And every dollar you give today goes to help more people like you experience the nearness and love of our God.

Recent results from a survey conducted by the Women Mayors Network indicates that nearly all mayors report experiences with threat and harassment. The problem is particularly acute for women and women of color mayors. We speak with Heidi Gerbracht, Founder and director of the Equity Agenda and Co-founder of the Women Mayors Network, about what this reveals about the health of our democracy.

I'm Stacey Simms and these are the top diabetes stories and headlines of the past seven days. we go live on social media first and then All sources linked up at diabetes dash connections dot com when this airs as a podcast. XX In the news is brought to you by T1D Exchange! T1D Exchange is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving outcomes for the entire T1D population. https://t1dexchange.org/stacey/ XX Our top story, Black children with type 1 diabetes experience disparities in health outcomes compared with other racial and ethnic groups with similar neighborhood opportunity profiles. That's according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Network Open. This was a very big study – more than 70-thousand patient encounters under the age of 21 from 2009 to 2018. They looked at something called the Child Opportunity Index. This It combines data from neighborhood-level indicators, like good schools, parks and playgrounds, clear air and safe housing. They found that the probability of readmission within a year was significantly higher among Black children with a very low COI category versus Hispanic children and White children at the same COI category. These researchers say doctors and educators need to be aware and include interventions that target racial disparities. https://www.physiciansweekly.com/outcomes-worse-for-children-with-type-1-diabetes-who-are-black XX New research suggests the people of certain racial ethnic groups should be screened for diabetes at lower body mass index than white people. A recommendation that contradicts recent guidelines from the United States Preventive Services Task Force. At a time when a lot of medicine is trying to rid itself of race-based tools this could be tricky.. but these researchers say that using a one-size-fits-all approach to screening, when diabetes is two to four times more prevalent and more deadly in Black, Hispanic, and Asian Americans, is likely to result in underdiagnosis of the disease, and widen health gaps. https://www.statnews.com/2022/05/09/race-ethnicity-bmi-diabetes-screening/ XX New partnership between JDRF, Yale University and a company called NexImmune. That company has something called Artificial Immune Modulation nanoparticles and the idea here is to if that could work with Teplizumab to delay or prevent type 1. Teplizumab is already being tested as a prevention method and is back in front of the FDA. NexImmune says it's wider plan is to use the body's own T-cells to generate a specific immune response to prevent not just diabetes but other auto immune conditions and even cancer. https://www.jdrf.org/press-releases/neximmune-yale-and-jdrf-enter-into-600k-research-partnership-for-type-1-diabetes/ XX Oramed Pharmaceuticals announced this week that it has enrolled 100% of the patients in the world's first Phase 3 study of oral insulin This is being looked at just for type 2 right now. The primary endpoint of the study is to compare the efficacy of ORMD-0801 to placebo in improving glycemic control, with a secondary endpoint of assessing the change from baseline in fasting plasma glucose at 26 weeks. They hope to announce results in January of 2023. https://www.biopharma-reporter.com/Article/2022/05/05/Oramed-hits-oral-insulin-clinical-trial-milestone XX New partnership between two diabetes heavy weights. The Diabetes Research Institute, DRI Foundation Canada (DRIFCAN) and Alberta Diabetes Institute (ADI) have announced a research partnership The CEO of DRI says "Type 1 diabetes knows no borders or boundaries; nor should the research to find a cure. There's a lot of research funded by these groups, included islet and stem cell transplantation. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/diabetes-research-institute-foundation-joins-193300513.html XX Right back to the news in a moment but first we've got a new sponsor. As I mentioned, The T1D Exchange Registry is an online research study, designed to harness the power of individuals with type 1 diabetes. It's a research study conducted online over time, designed to foster innovation and improve the lives of people with T1D. Personal information remains confidential and participation is fully voluntary. Once enrolled, participants will complete annual surveys and have the opportunity to sign up for other studies on specific topics related to T1D. By sharing opinions, experiences and data, patients can help advance meaningful T1D treatment, care and policy Sign up at T1DExchange.org slash Stacey (that's S-T-A-C-E-Y). XX Insulet's CEO is stepping down.. Shacey Petrovic has been in the role since 2019 and says she's stepping down June first for amily reasons. Petrovec will stay on as an advisor for the next year to aid in the transition and support the company's launch of the Omnipod 5. She'll replaced by Jim Hollingshead, who's been on Insulet's Board for the last three years. He's been the president of ResMed – a company that focuses on advances in sleep medicine- for the last 12 years. https://www.fiercebiotech.com/medtech/insulet-swap-ceos-amid-omnipod-5-insulin-pump-roll-out XX I feel like I haven't done a newscast in a few weeks without mentioning model Lila Moss. After being on the cover of UK Vogue and making headlines at the Met Gala, she's now showing off her Libre and Omnipod In a new Fendi and Versace ad campaign https://pagesix.com/2022/05/11/lila-moss-wears-diabetes-monitor-in-fendi-versace-ad-campaign/ XX Got an update for you on T1D The Movie. We talked about this a few months ago – Star Trek actor Noah Averbach Katz is producing a short film with type 1 at the center. He started a kick starter campaign and got a wonderful response from the start trek community which, along with the diabetes community, fully funded the project. I got an update that he is starting filming this week. He also says if you backed the project at the level where you'd get a token of appreciation, they're working on those too.. more to come. XX Interesting find on the toy front. I had never heard of Squishmallows but people say the stuffed toys are soothing while others say it's just a scam and there's nothing inherently special about the plush toys. Either way, one of the limited edition plushies is being marketed as having type 1 diabetes. There's nothing on the toy itself to show that it might use diabetes technology – this is just listed in the toy description on line. I'm trying to find out the story behind this so letme know if you know atying! XX On this week's long format episode, you'll hear about the Mental Health Plus diabetes conference.. the organizers said every conference has one session on mental health – we really need more. So they did it. Love that! Next week, as I mentioned, Dexcom's Chief Technical Officer on the G7, some interesting new info.. and I asked him all of your questions. Listen wherever you get your podcasts That's In the News for this week.. if you like it, please share it! Thanks for joining me! See you back here soon.
As we wrap up our week on the simplicity of love, today we'll look at the concept of simplicity itself and what it means to have a solitary pursuit. As you fix your eyes on Jesus today, may you find that the weight of the world falls away. And may you choose the path of simplicity and love going forward living out in joy and peace. Our Scripture for today comes from Colossians 3:14, and today's worship is Simple Gospel by United Pursuit. -- Faith doesn't happen on its own. It's a byproduct of time spent experiencing the faithfulness of our God. It's a gift given to us by the Giver of good gifts, himself. It was a supernatural faith that allowed Paul to sing even while in chains. It was supernatural faith that allowed Peter to proclaim the gospel, even unto death. And it's supernatural faith that will carry you to and through the greatest gospel opportunities in front of you. We pray our printed devotionals, Faith and Trust, help people like you experience the life changing reality that faith and trust have on your everyday life. With Faith you'll: Discover a Biblical framework for living faithfully Study powerful moments of God's faithfulness in scripture Tear down personal strongholds in your life where you struggle with faith Develop a lifestyle of faith, that weathers the storms of life And every dollar you give today goes to help more people like you experience the nearness and love of our God. Everything changes when we learn to trust and become filled with faith in our good, good God. Get your copy at supportfirst15.org!
In this season of Easter, Benson & Sean are jumping back into the Old Testament to explore the story of Joshua. A leader who served under Moses and then was handed the leadership, Joshua is perhaps one of the most overlooked heroes of Scripture. And he accomplished much of what he did by keeping it incredibly simple. How did he do that? What lessons can we learn from his leadership? Join us for this series as we explore that and more.
The effect of freedom depends on how you define it. Father Len reveals how God defines freedom and how other definitions can produce destructive consequences. Highlights, Ideas, and Wisdom Freedom involves being free from something in order to be free to become something. The American Revolution was about becoming free from the tyranny of a king and the injustices and oppression of a political system. 70% of Americans say they are free or mostly free. Two thirds of Americans define freedom as being “free to do whatever I want.” Being “free to do whatever I want” is an immature definition of freedom and the least likely to lead to happiness. Being “free to do whatever I want” is a form of tyranny that allows you to intrude on the life and liberty of others. “The Unbroken Thread: Discovering the Wisdom of Tradition in an Age of Chaos” by Sohrab Ahmari We create laws to set the parameters for a working society. To be free theologically means that we are always working on freedom. Working to become free from the tyranny of selfishness, oppression, and injustice. When the people of a country define freedom as selfishness, it will always be divided and destroyed. People who report the highest level of happiness tend to be religious and meditate regularly. People who report the most freedom from moral constraints tend to be the least happy. “Suicide, A Study in Sociology” by Emile Durkheim The really hard part of becoming freer is wrestling with our own egos and recognizing when we're being selfish. “If your definition of freedom is, I get to do whatever I want, just historically, it ends terribly. If our country just believes, I'm free to just think about myself, that's a loss of freedom. I think it destroys our country.” – Father Len Christians who believe giving up liberties for the sake of others makes them less free don't understand the freedom of the cross of Christ.

1st and 2nd Timothy are two short books, but very powerful. They're also controversial. The topics covered here are things that need to be revisited with each new generation so that we can view ourselves and our culture in light of scripture.I'm excited to jump into another one of Paul's epistles. If you'd like to check out the previous series on other epistles of Paul, head over to 10WeekBible.com and check out the archives.As always, I want to encourage you to read through the book of 1 Timothy once a week for the next ten weeks as we go through this book.

NPR recently highlighted how Orthodox Christian churches in the US are drawing in far-right American converts that show strong strains of nativism and white nationalism, along with a strong admiration for authoritarianism and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Dr. Sarah Riccardi-Swartz and Dr. Aram Sariksian join Thanos Davelis to look at this phenomenon and explore what the broader implications are not only for Orthodox churches in the US, but also for US democracy. Dr. Sarah Riccardi-Swartz is the postdoctoral fellow for the Recovering Truth: Religion, Journalism, and Democracy project in the Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict at Arizona State University. An anthropologist, scholar of American religion, and trained documentary filmmaker, she specializes in social politics, media, race, and Orthodox Christianity.

God is the perfect parent. He is unlike anyone we've ever known, and his love is unlike anything we've experienced before. Imagine knowing your parent loved you perfectly, and that their intentions and motives behind giving you direction was literally perfectly loving? That's how God is with us. His wisdom and direction is something we can trust implicitly because he can trust his heart toward us, and that truth makes obedience a joy. As we explore love-based obedience today, may your heart be open to the goodness of your loving Father. Our Scripture for today comes from John 14:21, and today's worship is Child of Love by We The Kingdom. -- Faith doesn't happen on its own.
