    Today’s episode is “The Role of Church and Community Development”.  We will discuss the history of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church and its impact on community and society in particular and the role of the Church, in general, and its responsibility to community. 


    Our guest for today is Rev. Albert D. Tyson III, the Presiding Elder of the North District, Chicago Conference of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church. The AME Church was founded in 1787, and has a mission to minister to the social, spiritual, and physical development of all people.


    Elder Tyson is highly involved in the AME Church, and the community and civic affairs of Chicago and beyond.  His resume is extensive, and time does not permit me to share it all, but here are a few highlights.  Elder Tyson is a member of the Board of Examiners of the Chicago Conference African Methodist Episcopal Church. He has served as the Vice-President and and the Parliamentarian of the Board of Directors for the Interfaith Organizing Project (IOP).  Elder Tyson also has served as the Treasurer, and eventually, the President, of the Near Westside Community Development Corporation (NWSCDC).

    Family Matters: The Christian Family and the Husband's Role - Part II.

    in Christianity

    The Christian family has a unique role, by God's design. Based on today's standards, one might question that. Couples and their children are taking a closer look at what family life is meant to be and can be.


    Today, the battle for the family is evident! And, the family has become a target of humanism – the amoral, atheistic philosophy that pervades our whole culture. So the questions are, "How shall we go about protecting our home and our families? And what must we do?”


    We need to know what God intended and purposed for the family. Families have to be aware of and discern the influences that saturate our daily life – all those things that are contrary to God's Word. Then, once we know, believe and accept these, we can make a deliberate decision to live by God's standards.


    Our goal is to uncover the importance of the family and its role. We will discuss the number one enemy of the family. We will also examine the role of husband, wife, and children.  And, lastly, we ask that you please pray with us about how to survive the battle of the family.


    Join us for our next Hope for Today podcast and tune in for the entire "Family Matters" series, over the next several weeks. Our hope is for you and us to live out the role of family, as God intended.

    Understanding the Recent College Demonstrations

    Understanding the Recent College Demonstrations


    In fall 2015, thousands of college students across the nation organized, protested, and demanded change at their schools. From the hiring of more faculty of color to the teaching of Ethnic and GLBTQ Studies and increasing student programs, students' lists of demands were vast. 


     


    Naysayers and conservative pundits were quick to critique these protests, but too few people took the time to listen and learn from students. As students return to their campuses from winter break, this show brings together student activists, educators, and community members to reflect on students’ demands, the factors fueling their protests, and the possibilities for change.


    Students have long been the ones pushing for educational transformation.These latest demonstrations aren’t isolated incidents or the gripes of so-called "coddled” or “whining” individuals, as some would want us to believe. Instead, students’ demands stem from decades of racism, class inequality, and other forms of exclusion. Now is the time to listen to students’ demands and work together to ensure that our schools serve all of our students.

    Magical Experiments: Pop Culture Magic Panel on Role Playing Games and Magic

    in Spirituality

    Join Taylor Ellwood of Magical Experiments and Azucena Alev, John Karaisik, and Dr. Sarah Bowman as they discuss role playing games and magic. We'll explore if RPG's can be a gateway to pop culture magic and what rpg's can teach us about magic and what magic can teach us about RPG's. We'll also discuss how to adapt RPG's to pop culture magic.


    Sarah Lynne Bowman, Ph.D., is a role-play studies scholar, participant-observation ethnographer, and game designer. She teaches as an adjunct professor for several institutions in English, Communication, and Humanities. 


    John's journey began when he gained interest in Chinese martial arts. His studies led him to Daoism - one of the most profound spiritual systems in existence. Daoism opened John up to the esoteric world, and he's never turned back since. He now practices a variety of rich spiritual systems, including Gnosticism, which he studies under a Gnostic bishop.


    Azucena Alev was born and raised in Austin, Texas, where she currently lives and works. After picking up the occult practices at a young age, she began reading the Tarot and then expanded to other methods of divination. Her knowledge of the divinatory arts, along with her collection of decks, has grown ever since.  In an effort to share her knowledge with others, she co-founded the Austin Spirituality Group, a free study group in the heart of Texas.

    Know Your Own Role with Todd Tomasella and Frank Telford

    in Christianity

    Divine Instructions for Interacting with other members of Christ's body.


    "But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.' 1 Timothy 3:15


    "For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting (lacking), and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:" Titus 1:5


    "And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed." Acts 14:23


    "And as they went through the cities, they delivered them the decrees for to keep, that were ordained of the apostles and elders which were at Jerusalem." Acts 16:4


    SafeGuardYourSoul.com | GreatCommissionAdventure.com


    Jesus cleansed the temple (picture of His house) with the goal of establishing His order out of man's chaos (Matthew 21; John 2).


    1 John 2 - John addresses "little children," "little children," "fathers." The younger are to submit to elder (1 Timothy 5:1; 1 Peter 5:1-6).


    In the household, and in the church there is a divinely ordained order set forth in Scripture.
