Doesn’t life often seem full of tragedy? I know I have my fair share of tragic moments, my mother died with I was 18, I have had health problems, I lost an eye due to a botched surgery by the VA. Over the past several years there has been an uptick in the number of mass shootings. There’s no rhyme or reason behind it other than hatred of some people. Around the nation, the murder rate is up in major cities. 2020 and 2021 saw millio...

I’m going to talk about peer pressure. Last episode I talked about how living under pressure is dangerous? That pressure can be positive? How we can  best handle pressure. Today I want to continue talking about pressure. Before I get into the heart of the subject, I want to talk a little bit about the early apostles and the early church leaders. They were Christians before it was cool to be a Christian, Christianity wasn’t official...

Today’s message is about acceptance. We live in a world where it seems like everyone wants to live in a bubble in which only those who look, feel, act, and talk the same are allowed in. There seems to be very little acceptance of those who are different or who believe differently.  That’s what I want to talk about today, the concept of Acceptance.

I want to answer some questions. How can we learn to accept those who are different f...

There’s a theory in business called servant leadership.  That theory was first proposed by Robert Greenleaf in 1970 when he wrote, ““The servant-leader is servant first… It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. That person is sharply different from one who is leader first, perhaps because of the need to assuage an unusual power drive or to acquir...

Hank Wilson — (Not the entire script) Wars, rumors of war, pestilence, pandemic, food shortages, more and more the headlines of today have to make everyone nervous.  So we worry, in fact I had a friend ask me about if it was wrong to try and predict the future using astrology.

By Hank Wilson – Doesn’t it seem like everywhere we turn today; hate and hatred is everywhere. Somebody always seems to be hating on someone else for something that another person said or did.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen this much hatred before or at least not so open and easily expressed. For a country where so many people claim to be Christians, there sure are a bunch who don’t remember the love thy neighbor or the forgive ot...

Well I’m back, got bucked off for awhile, but got back up and here’s a snippet of my message today about exhaustion.  The message itself runs about 8 minutes.  God Bless and Peace

Back in June of 2020, I did a message about burnout, how it is so easy to become burned out. I personally was getting to that point, I felt like I had been rode hard and put away wet and didn’t want to do anything more. If you’ve followed the podcast, you...

What is prayer?

There are several types of prayers, there’s the plea for help, the prayer that God does something to someone, the negotiation prayer, you know, God if you do this, I’ll do that, and so on.  But what exactly is prayer, first and foremost it’s an act of humility, 2 Chronicles 7:14 – “and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will he...

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
