  • Urban Therapy with Sun #144 The 90-Day Probation Period.

    in Lifestyle

    Many jobs make a new employee wait 90 days before they can claim full benefits as a full-time employee. During this time, an employee is not expected to have any unexcused latenesses or absences. If the employee violates the rules within that time period, he/she can be terminated uncontested. Ever wonder why 90 days is the measurement that companies use to grade new employees? Let's see if we can find out why.

    Many women have employed the 90 day rule when it comes to having sexual relations with a new potential relationship. Is this a result of reading Steve Harvey's book Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man? Has this changed the game as far as dating is concerned? Can a book overrule what the heart feels? What would be the benefits that are derived from making a man wait 90 days to have sex? Would you use that criteria? Should a man be expected to wait for that long? Is that a long time?

    What are some other things that people wait 90 days for?
    How about drug rehab? Isn't that the time period that most in-patient programs use to determine whether an addict has successfully completed detox? Why 90 days?
    What's up with the 90 day rule? Is there something valid behind that time period?
    Listen to the show on Wednesday and let's see what we can find out.

  • A MORE SURE WORD OF PROPHECY

    in Christianity

    I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. 2 Cor. 6:2.



    We believe without a doubt that Christ is soon coming. This is not a fable to us; it is a reality. We have no doubt, neither have we had a doubt for years, that the doctrines we hold today are present truth, and that we are nearing the judgment. We are preparing to meet Him who, escorted by a retinue of holy angels, is to appear in the clouds of heaven to give the faithful and the just the finishing touch of immortality. When He comes He is not to cleanse us of our sins, to remove from us the defects in our characters, or to cure us of the infirmities of our tempers and dispositions. If wrought for us at all, this work will all be accomplished before that time. When the Lord comes, those who are holy will be holy still. Those who have preserved their bodies and spirits in holiness, in sanctification and honor, will then receive the finishing touch of immortality. But those who are unjust, unsanctified, and filthy will remain so forever. No work will then be done for them to remove their defects and give them holy characters. The Refiner does not then sit to pursue His refining process and remove their sins and their corruption. This is all to be done in these hours of probation. It is now that this work is to be accomplished for us

    in Culture

    Jim and Jennifer welcome Kathi Hardy to the show.  Kathi is a recovering drug addict and former prostitute who has dedicated much of her life helping those who have found themselves in similar life situations.


    A faithful participant in San Diego's "Prostitution Impact Panel," which has hosted over 808 men with a staggering low 3.5% recidivism rate, Kathi has also helped start the Survivors of the Streets group, which the City Attorney's office utilizes as a First Offender Diversion Program for adults who were picked up for prostitution activities. Many of the 700 participants have been victims of human trafficking. Working with Juvenile Hall and Child Welfare, her group has seen hundreds of children who have been victimized, with the goal to reeducate them so they may lead healthier lifestyles.  


    Kathi’s program won the Norma Hotaling Award, Chief's Award from San Diego County Juvenile Probation, and recognition by New Alternatives, Inc. in San Diego.

    The Yehudah Project: World Politics and World Turmoil how does it affect us?

    in Culture

    Our goal at the Yehudah Project is to establish open communication and build a bridge with love to combat the negative spirits that attempt to attack our men and women through hatred and division. We want to recognize and appreciate each other through love, support and accountability while taking responsibility for our behaviors and actions.


    STOP the abusive dialog between our Hebrew men and our Hebrew women, because we are experiencing the same identical hardships today and we need to heal each other with love.


    It is mandated by YHWH for us to come together and pray: we are a nation of people with dual nationalities and we have to open dialog as a nation to prepare ourselves and our families for the changes that are about to happen according to the Word. Children are won through the union of the man and the woman. Let’s remember our children learn what they live!


     STOP ABUSING EACH OTHER AND LET’S TALK!

    TELLING THE STORY

    in Current Events

    SHARING THE STORY


            Why is it so important for trauma and domestic violence victims to tell their stories? Are they just sharing cautionary tales, or does the telling make a difference?


            It turns out that telling a trauma narrative does help with recovery for victims. Research also shows that sharing the story can also help minimize psychological effects that can follow.  At least one organization recognizes this and has helped survivors with the telling in at least one special project.


            Brian Pinero is the chief programs officer at the National Domestic Violence Hotline and its youth-focused program, loveisrespect.  He’s going to talk with us about a project designed to facilitate survivors’ stories and the results of that project. Prior to joining The Hotline, he supervised youth shelter services, was an investigator at Child Protective Services and worked as a juvenile probation officer. Brian is a member of the National Advisory Board for Crisis Text Line and holds a master’s degree in social work from the University of Texas.


            Join us Saturday as we explore the importance of telling the story and how we can do that effectively. Call-in to share how your story or that of others has helped you deal with life experiences.  (646) 378-0430.

    From Street Gang Member to Street Evangelist: The Testimony of Jorge Vasquez

    in Christianity

    Episode #20150728


    On this edition of Soul Winner Radio, Tony will interview his friend, Jorge Vasquez. Jorge, by all worldly accounts, should have been a statistic. He was a member of one of the world's most notorious and dangerous street gangs, both in Honduras and Los Angeles. He was also an interstate drug runner, until he was arrested and sent to prison.


    While in prison, Jorge heard the gospel of Jesus Christ and came to genuine repentance and faith. His story of salvation by the grace of God alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone will encourage and challenge you.


    Christian: this will be an episode you will want to share with your unsaved friends.
