    Sacred Sunday~Romans 15/Love One Another

    in Christianity

    Good morning! Today we are reading Romans Chapter 15.


    Really, Paul just wants all the Romans to live in harmony together and glorify God together without worrying about their differences. Remember, Christ is with the Jewish-Christians and the Gentile-Christians, too. So let's all play nice. Paul actually has a good feeling about the Romans. He knows they're upstanding people who are knowledgeable and can help each other do what's right by God. He's only written to them to tell them all this and to give them advice because of his special relationship with God. What can we say. The Big Guy loves helping Paul write all his correspondence. Not that's he's bragging or anything. Paul would only ever brag about all the good things that God has done through him. So modest. For example, Paul has won tons of converts through the entire Roman Empire, but that's all God's doing. He made that happen. Paul's not usually in the business of preaching about Jesus where people already know him. He also doesn't usually come into a church community he didn't found, like the one in Rome, and start handing out advice. No, never. That's why he hasn't been to see the Roman Christians in person yet. He's been meaning to, but there are just so many non-believers who need to hear the good news first hand. Paul's got a busy schedule. But now he's fresh out of non-believers to convert in the area, so he's going to head over to Rome soon and stay a while on his way to preach the gospel in Spain. Oh, bull fighting? Not, quite. Before that, Paul has got to make a quick pit stop in Jerusalem. The folks in Macedonia and Achaia have taken up a nice collection for the poor there and he's gonna drop off the money. Mission possible! Special thanks to www.shmoop.com.

    Sacred Sunday~Romans 14/Judge Not of What Food They Partake!

    in Paranormal

    Good Morning! Happy Easter to all the Orthodox Christians!  Christos Anesti! We are reading Romans Chapter 14.


    There's more from our favorite lecturer…Paul! If people don't have a strong faith, then by all means, invite them over. But don't do it just so you can start a huge argument with them. Sounds like Paul has been to a Thanksgiving dinner or two. For example, some Christians will eat anything at all, even foods that other Christians consider unholy (like non-kosher foods or anything that's been sacrificed to the Roman gods). But it's silly to make a big deal about what other people are eating. God is totally fine with all these eating practices and you should be, too. The same problem happens with days of the week. Some people think one day is the best day to honor God, while other people don't care. So it's all fine. Eat what you're gonna eat, honor God when you're gonna honor him. It's really all okay. Look, it's not about us, Paul says. Jesus died and rose again. Do you really think he cares about who's right when it comes to what food you're eating? He's got bigger fish to fry. So there's no reason to be passing judgment on each other because everyone is going to have to answer to Jesus one day. Yeah, let him sort it out. Paul doesn't personally think that there are foods that should be put on the "Do Not Eat" list, but he won't fret if other Christians do. Just trust in God. If you think God wants you to lay off the booze, then do it. If you think God is fine with you firing up some pork chops, then by all means. But really, guys, Paul tells them. Let's not destroy the kingdom of God over a couple slices of bacon. Okay? Thank you www.shmoop.com

    Tipping Sacred Cows - author Betsy Chasse

    in Spirituality

    Our guest this week is Betsy Chasse, author and film producer. The uplifting story of spilt milk, spirituality and finding your way in a hectic world.


    I’m a filmmaker. You may have seen my film "What The Bleep Do We Know?!". I was a co-creator of the film, credited with co-writing, co-directing and producing.


    In addition to “BLEEP,” I also produced a very powerful documentary, Pregnant In America, which examines the bleak state of natural childbirth in the U.S.—a subject close to my heart since things are so bad in the States I elected to go to Canada to give birth to my son.

    BETSY CHASSE OF "WHAT THE BLEEP" FAME IS BUSY “TIPPING SACRED COWS”

    in Culture

    ENVISION THIS: It’s time to question your belief systems, to know that you don’t need to have all the answers, and that one size does NOT fit all!


    Our guest, Betsy Chasse, says, “As I stand here knee deep in manure, finding my way to reclaiming myself, I’m going to share my version of finding your own capacity to live your life to your highest potential, even while cleaning up cat vomit, carpooling, and waiting in line at the post office.” She identifies herself first and foremost as a mom, “with two wonderful kids, Elora and Max. They are the light of my life and my world revolves around them! We love to garden, paint, create and cause as much of a rumpus as we can together.”


    She is probably more familiar to many of our listeners as co-creator of the film, credited with co-writing, co-directing and producing.  What The Bleep Do We Know?!  


    Her new book, Tipping Sacred Cows, and our interview with her have to do with all she has learned and unlearned since that achievement: “It’s time to tip some sacred cows about what we think we know about spirituality, reality, and ourselves. It’s time to get liberated from the fences we’ve put up and frolic once again through the pasture of life, realizing that stepping in cow shit is not always such a bad thing. That happiness is not a destination but a state of mind and you’re already there if you’re willing to just do a little work to uncover your true bliss, your happy mojo, that creamy cream that exists in the middle of you!”  Betsy has some wonderful insights on finding your own spiritual path in today's hectic world.
