Jesus begins the Sermon on the Mount with a curious list that has confounded and confused followers and seekers for generations. These statements that we commonly call "the Beatitudes" frame the entire sermon, so we'll spend a couple of weeks on these verses.
ABOUT JOSEPH WEISBERG AND RUSSIA UPSIDE DOWN A former CIA officer and the creator of the hit TV series The Americans makes the case that America's policy towards Russia is failing-and we'll never fix it until we rethink our relationship.Coming of age in America in the 1970s and 80s, Joe Weisberg was a Cold Warrior. After briefly studying Russian in Leningrad, he joined the CIA in 1990-just in time to watch the Soviet Union collapse. But less than a decade after the first Cold War ended, a new one broke out. Russia changed in many of the ways that America hoped it might-more capitalist, more religious, more open to Western ideas. But US sanctions have crippled Russia's economy; and Russia's interventions have exacerbated political problems in America. The old paradigm-America, the free capitalist good guys, fighting Russia, the repressive communist bad guys-simply doesn't apply anymore. But we've continued to act as if it does. In this bold and controversial book, Joe Weisberg interrogates these assumptions, asking hard questions about American policy and attempting to understand what Russia truly wants. Russia Upside Down makes the case against the new Cold War. It suggests that we are fighting an enemy with whom we have few if any serious conflicts of interest. It argues that we are fighting with ineffective and dangerous tools. And most of all, it aims to demonstrate that our approach is not working. With our own political system in peril and continually buffeted by Russian attacks, we need a new framework, urgently. Russia Upside Down shows the stakes and begins to lay out that new plan, at a time when it is badly needed. ABOUT JOSEPH WEISBERG Joseph Weisberg is an Emmy award-winning television writer and producer, best known for creating The Americans. He is the author of two previous books: the novels An Ordinary Spy and 10th Grade. He lives in New York.
Yesterday we continued our study of the Upside Down Life, in a message titled, “Powerful Weakness.” We studied what it means to be humble. Jesus says, “blessed are the humble, for they will inherit the earth.” Often when we think about the concept of humility, we identify that term to mean weakness. Jesus is turning our understanding of how to interact with others completely upside down. - Pastor MichaelCONNECT AT GREEN ACRES Are you new to Green Acres or would like more info about our church?

I just don't know if men in any other ethnicity have to face the daily Upside Down-ness like a black man. A series of recent "headlines" in pop black culture, or Black Culture, just drove me into a state of paralysis - "This can't be life stuff." From Drink Champs beef, Verzuz conflict, 50 Cent's ever-growing content on STARZ Network, and the views expressed in new music like a record on Westside Gunn's Hitler Wears Hermes 8 one just can't help but wonder what's the personal toll associated with remaining a consumer of all this content. And then on the other hand, let's take a look at this Willie Lynch-esque "Richard Snipp" letter discussed in a recent Delano Squires article on The Blaze (TV) site. With autumn arriving, outdoor cycling is quickly winding down, but there's a new edition to the Wood stable. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/its-always-personal/support

Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” 3 Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” 4 Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?” 5 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.' 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”9 Nicodemus said to him, “How can these things be?” 10 Jesus answered him, “Are you the teacher of Israel and yet you do not understand these things? 11 Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen, but you do not receive our testimony. 12 If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things? 13 No one has ascended into heaven except he who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 19 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. 20 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. 21 But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”1. Who are you tempted to write off from God's grace? Pray for them now.2. When is it hard to remember that God knows you and loves you and sent his son for you? 3. What is your go to 'thing-to-do' to experience life-abundant? or how do you usually try to earn it?4.

Yesterday in worship we continued our study of The Upside Down Life and looked at the blessing of mourning. While it may not sound thrilling to discuss the concept of mourning, there is so much hope found in the words of Jesus in Matthew 5:4: “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” We discussed this hope in yesterday's message, “Hopeful Mourning.” - Pastor Michael Gossett Are you new to Green Acres or would like more info about our church?

Few designers in the 2000s pushed boundaries, stirred conversation, and made statements like Nicholas Ghesquière. At twenty-five years old, Nicolas took over the dormant fashion house of Balenciaga. As a young, unproven designer, no one foresaw the explosion of ingenuity that would follow. Ghesquière incorporated the influential creations of Balenciaga's storied past, while drawing inspiration from science fiction, to produce revolutionary looks for the runway and the decade. Season after season, Ghesquière's unique vision fused the past with the future, allowing Balenciaga to become a rising global brand in the decade.

In Matthew chapter 5, Jesus gives us a tangible understanding of what it truly means to follow Him in His kingdom. Matthew 5-7 is known as “The Sermon on the Mount” and Jesus begins this sermon with what is known as the “Beatitudes.” I am looking forward to this 9-week series as we dive into the “Beatitudes” together. This is Jesus' economy of how to truly live a blessed and fulfilled life. It truly does seem to be the Upside Down Life compared to the culture of the world. - Pastor Michael Are you new to Green Acres or would like more info about our church?

This isn't a rumor. It's just taken a while for it to become public. As of today, there are six planes filled with American Citizens and Afghan interpreters at the Mazar Sharif Airport being held hostage. It is finally being reported by mainstream news sources such as CBS. From a news report: A satellite image that was released on Sunday reportedly shows six airplanes that the Taliban is not allowing to fly out of Afghanistan. The planes are supposed to be carrying American citizens and Afghan interpreters who helped the U.S. Military. The satellite image follows a report from CBS News and remarks from a top U.S. lawmaker on Sunday that both said that the circumstances have effectively turned into a hostage situation. “Multiple planes that are ready to take American citizens and green card holders out of the country are being denied permission to leave by the Taliban,” CBS News reported, according to congressional and NGO sources. An email viewed by the network said that the flights were cleared to land in Qatar “if and when” the Taliban agreed to let them leave. A senior congressional source told the network that “the Taliban is basically holding them hostage to get more out of the Americans.” What has happened to America 2021 that this isn't leading every news program? What has happened that our government so cavalierly has left these people on the tarmac? It's enough to drive one crazy. In our upside-down world, we just visited the community of St. Tikhons Monastery and Seminary in the rural community of South Canaan, PA, nested in the hills of the Pocono Mountains. To many people, the scene of family and kids all centered around church might seem crazy. But it isn't. It's probably one of the sanest things I've seen in years. Counterculture and radical is a big family centered on faith and each other. Nothing crazy about it, just living as human beings were created to live, focused on the things that matter in life.

Kicking off our Flipping the Script series is none other than our venerable host, Jen herself. In this solo episode, Jen transparently talks about the changes in her life in the last year--the days she thought she wouldn't survive, and the days where she could finally see hope dancing around the corner. Jen walks us through key times throughout all of her life when she flipped the script of her existence in several areas; spiritually, as a woman, and in her view of her body. She shares how we all are inclined to resist change and how easy it is to adhere to the script that is handed to us, and how we'll even create our own script of lies to ourselves to stay and be accepted within certain structures. In the end, Jen acknowledges that flipping the script can create a disturbance around us--within our families, within our friend groups--but that listening to yourself and believing that your instincts and hearts are good are worth the upheaval, and becoming unstuck will lead to the most rewarding days ahead. * * * Thank you to our sponsors!
