On Good Friday we follow Jesus to the cross where He lays down His life for the world. He was crucified with a sign that said "King of the Jews." This reminds us of the Wise Men who came to worship "the One who had been born king of the Jews" so many years before. Do the gifts of the Magi still mean anything? And why do we need Jesus, on Good Friday?
You might like this little slice of relatively well-recorded tomfoolery recorded live at the famous Fillmore East in 1971. What a night it must have been. Anyhow, it really depends on which mix you like better. Lennon and Ono or Frank Zappa. To me, Some Time In New York City sounds pretty muddy. I like this album because it has (to my knowledge) none of Zappa's Xenechrony. It's all raw, but if you really pay attention, these Mothers were pretty tight. Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention - Well Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention - Say Please Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention - Aaawk (I love Yoko's ferocious "aaawk" squeals...like she's repeatedly being shoved underwater.) Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention - Scumbag Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention - A Small Eternity With Yoko Ono Willie Dickson and The Playboys - Licking Stick (1969) Andrea True Connection - More, More, More (1976) Instrumental version sounds almost like a run-through. Especially that bass. I like it. Collective Consciousness Society CCS - Whole Lotta Love (1971) Discogs: CCS (Collective Consciousness Society) was a British group formed by bluesman Alexis Korner and Danish vocalist Peter Thorup. The band itself also consisted of different studio casts who would be around but also included Tony Carr (drums), Herbie Flowers (bass), Harold Beckett (trumpet), Harold McNair (woodwind), and Henry Lowther (trumpet), among others. This wasn't all, as they were going for a unique sound to rival the top Rock acts of the day. So they would grab the creme de la creme of jazz studio musicians of the time. The entire lineup would always be subject to change throughout the band's history, depending on personnel availability at recordings. Desmond Dekker and the Aces - Licking Stick (1971) David Peel and the Lower East Side - The Ballad of New York City - John Lennon / Yoko Ono (1972) Elephant's Memory - Local Plastic Ono Band (1972) George Torrence and the Naturals - (Mama, Come Quick, And Bring Your) Lickin' Stick (1968) Note the composer. James Brown - Licking Stick, Licking Stick (1968) Now, the same song, re-written by James Brown. Rusty Garnett - Licking Stick, Licking Stick (196?) Tenth Hour - Lickin Stick (1975) This beat Shazam! Credited to Charles Manley and George Torrence. The United States Air Force Band featuring The Free Design – "The Now Sound Of Christmas" (1968) These are all live recordings, and some have never been released on Free Design albums. ESPECIALLY the song "Shepherds and Wisemen" which, to my ears, is very good. A hidden gem. The Proper Ornaments/Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence/Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer/Close Your Mouth (It's Christmas)/Christmas Is The Day/Winter Wonderland/Shepherds and Wise Men/Reprise-The Now Sound of Christmas. It would be so nice to hear this on a big FM radio console in a living room. Jimmy Castor Bunch (featuring the Everything Man) - Supersound (1975) I love this.
In 1 Timothy 3:2 Paul uses a unique word translated in many ways, one of which is prudent—“An overseer, then, must be…prudent.” Wikipedia explains prudence as, “The ability to govern and discipline oneself by the use of reason. It is classically considered to be a virtue, and one of the four cardinal virtues.” It is showing care and thought for the future. Merriam-Webster says, “The prudent are marked by wisdom. They are shrewd in the management of practical affairs. Discreet.” Get Your Copy Now! of Tell Them, What Great Fathers Tell Their Sons and Daughters www.meninthearena.org Men in the Arena Books and Swag Support the Podcast

1/2/2022As we celebrate Epiphany of the Lord Sunday, which marks the 12th day of Christmas, we might recall the song full of gifts none of us want – turtle doves and partridges in pear trees. But the 12th day of Christmas is really about the one who was born to set us free. Epiphany marks the day when the Wise Men finally laid eyes on the Savior – and opened their hearts in worship and opened their treasured gifts before him. This Epiphany and beyond, let's consider how our encounter with the Light of the World will open our hearts and re-arrange our plans and priorities this year. Because, once we've seen the light, we are changed and called to be world changers. "2022: The Year of Open Eyes and Open Hearts" - Rev.

For over two thousand years wise men (and women) have sought Jesus Christ. While the reasons are varied and many, the goal is still the same - to respond to His call and fully know Him as He reveals Himself in scripture as our Savior and Lord.

The story of the Wise Men have been told from generation to generation. Typically, the focus is on the gifts which they bring or the animal around the baby in a manger. We need to also focus on the actions they also brought with their gifts. Listen in as Pastor Jason Staten discusses deeper the characteristics of worship the Wise Men had.

On Epiphany we remember the wisemen's journey towards Jesus. With them, we learn that we need to look with our feet, not just our eyes, in order to follow God's guiding star. We learn how to turn around when we are wrong about where Jesus is, and learn to worship him with our whole selves when we find him.
This past Thursday, January 6 was Epiphany, the day we remember the arrival of the Wise Men to meet Jesus. We focus a lot on those strangers from a distant land, but there was another character: King Herod. How does Herod fit in the story?

Some of the most prolific characters in the Bible are the Wise Men. The magi's narrative of following a star, avoiding capture and tricking Herod, paying homage and bringing gifts to the newborn king, and escaping home thanks to the voice of God make it one of the best stories you can tell. It even has ramifications for how we can begin our new year and listen for God's voice and follow God's star.

There is another global celebration happening just a few days into the New Year. This year it falls on January 6. While it is not as well known and the number of revelers will be significantly smaller, it holds rich meaning for those who participate. It is called the celebration of EPIPHANY, some call it 3 KINGS DAY! While not as widely celebrated by Christ-followers here in the U.S., it is celebrated by millions of Christians around the world. It memorializes the day when GOD revealed HIS SON, the Savior of the world, to the first gentiles. There is much we can learn from the first gentiles who worshipped our Savior. I pray you engage in this message as we learn from the Wise Men, “How to be All In For JESUS in 2022”! Pastor Joe Still

What a first round of the playoffs! The #babcicurse remains intact, the Farmington Football Team pulls off a big Tuesday (>!>!?!>!#!#@%!#@>!) Night come from behind victory, and neither Tim nor Dave were successful in sucking more than Tom in Week 10 despite their best efforts! We're in the money rounds now, the Sheriff and the Deputy are back hot off their first round byes and the stage is set for a dramatic Round 2. Also pro tip: 3 out of 3 Wisemen recommend sticking around after the credits. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good fight!
Rethinking Scripture Podcast - Episode 32: Rethinking Advent - The GiftsDecember 23, 2021 - Host: Dr. Gregory HallWhen we think of the advent of the Christ, many of our perceptions are based on the scene at the nativity.

Following the death of Joseph Smith, the Church was fractured into several pieces. Today those have grown into many branches of the Restoration, and they all believe in the Book of Mormon. Patrick McKay Sr. is devoted to working on healing the breach and bringing all of the Restoration groups together. His work highlights the miracles and manifestations of the power of God among these separate factions, showing that God is with them all. One day, we will all be one in Christ, so let's talk to each other now. Patrick's vision of peace and Zion will inspire you. He also shares his theory on the true identity of the Three Wise Men. Were they Nephites/Lamanites? The Book of Mormon might shed more light on Christ's nativity story than we think. Find links to Patrick's work, including his book, Healing the Breach, in the show notes: https://mormontheories.wordpress.com/2021/12/21/006patrickmckaysr/ Follow the Mormon Theories podcast on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mormontheories/ If you'd like to share your Mormon theory with us, contact us here: https://mormontheories.wordpress.com/contact/
Chris Wall • Matthew 2:1-12 ESV The third message in this series will focus on the simultaneously call to a small group of wise men. This group had studied ancient revelations and natural processes that revealed the arrival of the Savior. These men were so certain of God’s plan, they traveled to Bethlehem bringing gifts for the purpose of bowing in worship to the King in a manger. This humble response of stately figures reminds us of His Lordship. Their posture of humility exhibits the only appropriate response to this King in a manger.
Pastor Austin continues our Christmas series, and challenges everyone to realize that anyone can worship God, even if they don't fit our idea of Christ follower. Furthermore, following God can mean uprooting your whole life to go somewhere else. Part 2: The Gospel According to...
