    EP216 Historical Pirate Fiction Author Ozgur Sahin joins Kori on the Back Porch

    in Books

    Ozgur K. Sahin is an award-winning independent author and life coach currently living in Minnesota. He has a background in astrophysics, consciousness development, and history.  He is currently editing the second book in his Brethren of the Spanish Main historical pirate fiction series, and has written and blogged about narcissism and personal/social development.


    The Wrath of Brotherhood


    After learning of his sister’s death at the hands of pirates, successful merchant Captain Roy Toppings sails to the Caribbean on a misguided mission of vengeance against the man who failed to protect her: her Spanish widower, Pablo Francisco.


    In the climate of the Restoration-era Caribbean colonies, where scheming and stealth could yield a prize as readily as boldness and firepower, Roy's vendetta lands him and his small but talented privateer crew in the middle of political intrigue and a deadly invasion in the West Indies as the nations of Europe struggle to consolidate power in anticipation of new monarchs in England and France.


    When Spain prepares a strike that could jeopardize all other commercial interests in the Caribbean, Roy must risk losing his chance at vengeance to fight for his nation and his fellow Brethren of the Coast.

    KINGDOM REALITY:Fact vs Fiction

    in Christianity

    One of the most prevelant questions asked by those who go out to witness for Christ is "Do you know Jesus"? The problem with that is, that most of those asking the question, don't know Jesus; so they cannot adquately respond to questions or comments made by the one they are speaking to.  Kingdom Reality says we know God and that we are not able to lead others to Him without knowing Him for ourselves. Today's message will address common myths spreaded among the church. We will work to divide Fact from Fiction, using the Scriptures and some adages used traditionally in the church. Our message is delivered by the prophet Mary E. Washington, Pastor of Feed My Sheep World Evangelism located in Irving, Texas. Please support our World Evangelism Ministry by giving your gift to help us in spreading the Good News.  Thank you in advance and may God bless you in a most special way.
