    Eternity in their Hearts -- Write Stuff -- 2/9/2016

    in Entertainment

    I think missionaries don't receive as much credit as they need to. After all, most missionaries leave their homes to go into other countries to spread the Good News. Some people find themselves in cultures that are vastly different from the ones they left. 


    In particular, there are those individuals who go on missions to places where there isn't a drop of running water in sight. The people they are trying to reach congregate themselves as tribes with rituals and customs we in the developed world may find strange, unusual, and downright horrific. 

    The modernized world would say these people do not need religion to mess up their way of life. They've existed like this for a long and don't need our help. Yet Jesus commanded us to go into the entire world and preach the gospel. Why?

    Murmurings of a Mad Man -- Write Stuff -- 1/12/2016

    in Entertainment

    For this edition of the Write Stuff, I have the pleasure of showcasing John Kaniecki, author and poet. 


    John lives with the reality of bi polar mental illness. This condition has had a great impact on John's life and his walk with God. The ailment began when John was twenty years old and continues to this day. With proper medication John functions fine. However it was a great cross to bear initially. An overwhelming one. Now twenty eight years later reflecting back John can appreciate the lessons learned from the struggles.


    The book, "Murmurings of a Mad Man" are poems that are reflections from a time when John was committed to Graystone Psychiatric Hospital. At that time many who should have been sources of support simply vanished. Alone in Dorm Sixty Two, John came to grips with the serious of the problem. This came with the full realization that only God can solve our greatest problem

    Somewhere I Belong -- Write Stuff -- 1/26/2016

    in Entertainment

    Years ago, there was a movie called D.A.R. Y. L. about a robot who resembled a ten year old boy built by the government. I watched the movie as a kid and I always loved the song that played at the end. It was called Somewhere I Belong by Teddy Pendergrass. The song depicts what the majority of the movie is about...where can an artificial boy can belong in the human world.


    Belonging. It's something we all long for. Loneliness is not usually a choice a person choose to be. Most often, a set of circumstances may happen to where loneliness becomes the only option for some individuals.  Loneliness isn't the same as having alone or 'me' time. That often gives us a chance to be communion with the Lord, bask in his presence, calm down life and recharge. But loneliness was never part of God's plan.

    The Rules For US Versus The Rules For Them Part II

    in Pop Culture

    This episode in the 2nd part of " The Rules for US versus the Rules for Them" episode.  In the previous episode I discussed how non-minority athletes and entertainers can do certain things or act a certain way , but if an athlete or entertainer who is a minority does those same things and act in the same way; there actions are then scrutinized by the media and then NOT accepted by the public once the media has molded the situation. Now, with the Super bowl being just a few days away there is a polarizing subplot in the air.  Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has caught a lot of backlash from the media because of his end zone dances and having fun while winning games, but it is perfectly acceptable for Aaron Rodgers to have an end zone celebration, acceptable for Peyton to curse out Julius Thomas on the field during the 2014 AFC Chaampionship game, or even acceptable for Tom Brady to talk trash on the field while being mic'd up. Cam is viewed as arrogant, but Manning, Rodgers, and Brady are firey competitors.  Cam is being labled as "the villan" going into Super Bowl 50 because most media outlets want Peyton Manning to go out on top by winning his last appearance in the Super Bowl.  Now, the media is putting Cam in a no win situation with the public. If Cam and the Panthers beat Peyton and the Broncos, the he will be "the villan", but if Peyton wins it, Peyton will be branded as one of the greatest QBs of all times and people will say Cam choked. Is that fair? No, but the media has the power to do that. Peyton is still one of the greatest of all-time even without a win the Super Bowl. Why does the public NOT see that?  The media molds the public's perception. Call In at 323.417.6807 with questions.
