    "The Wealth of Self Forgiveness"

    in Christianity

    Are you to hard on yourself?  Why is learning to forgive ourselves so much harder than forgiving others?  We all mess up, and sometimes in really big ways!  The list of portential misdeeds is very long!  Did you lie, did you cheat in some way, hurt someone, judge someone, or just "not do what you were supposed to do?"  This tendency to withhold forgiveness produces sickness and disease to our soul and body.  So many people have a constand, critical voice in their head that criticizes everything they do, every move they make.  Forgiving yourself doesn't mean not being angry at yourself, nor does it mean that everything is ok, or that you have minimized or justified the offense.  It simply means liveing at peace with yourself, and resisting the desire to be your own "prosecuting attorney, judge, jury, and executioner"!  The wealth we receive from living out these rules of forgiviness brings life, ushers in hope, and gives the on going restoration we need for our bodies and souls.  Joine me today as  we learn these three basic rules to living a live of honesty, hope, and health.

    Thursday afternoon a jury acquitted Kyler Carriker of Felony Murder.  The verdict ended a fight for justice that was two years old and reached across the country with attorney, activists & journalists all pitching in, joined by a community of supporters that never wavered from the fight. It was wonderful to watch and more wonderful to be a part of. Sunday Morning we spend time with a few of the important people who waged that fight.  Mike Shatz of Kansas Exposed, Meko Haze of The Daily Haze and Joe Grumbine of The Human Solution International join me to discuss the trial, the issues, the protestors and how much more work there is for everyone to do. Mike, Meko and Joe provided a window into the trial process reporting on testimony, rulings by Judge Pullman and the strategy of the Prosecuting Attorney.  Along with Jennifer Winn, Kyler's mother, providing daily video updates, these three and people like Shona Banda, Kisty Watson and even Mike Harris on social media, showed the world how unity works in a fight for justice and how Kyler and marvelous attorney Sarah Swain knew at all times that there were many fighting with them.  It will be an inspiring conversation.  So grab a cup of coffee and join us Sunday Morning for this important discussion. Longtime Activist, Journalist, Coffee Party USA Board of Director & Radio Host, Bobby Rodrigo brings you "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee". On Coffee Party USA Radio every Sunday Morning at 8:30AM.
