God as bread. God as a laboring woman. God as a dog. Sound heretical? These are all metaphors for God that are used in the Bible! Lauren Winner's stunning book "Wearing God" brings some of these images forward for new consideration. Today, Lori and Alice consider God as a sensory experience: What does God smell like? What smells are most pleasing to God? How does our sense of smell lead us to — and away from — real communion with God? Then, we'll take on the metaphor of God as bread. Is God a marbled rye or chocolate tea bread? Tune in for some lively discussion from your favorite spiritual book club!
God as bread. God as a laboring woman. God as a dog. Sound heretical? These are all metaphors for God that are used in the Bible! Lauren Winner's stunning book "Wearing God" brings some of these images forward for new consideration. In today's show, Lori and Alice will examine the affect that our image of God has on us and on our broader society. Then, we'll talk about God as clothing, and as the one who clothes us. How can this image change our vision of ourselves? Can it help us feel less shame about our bodies? Can it change how we interact with others? Let's talk about it on your favorite on-the-air book club!

Today we will begin a series of discussions about grief and the mililtary.
So many of our returning soldiers and vets struggle with readjusting to life at home. Often the key to rebuilding a life beyond war is elusive and frustrating.
We will look and one of the key factors to this recovery. What is the grief of war? How is it different from other forms of grief? How do we recognize it? How can we help.
It's time to get serious about eternal life in Jesus. No more cosmic values, or cosmic attitudes. The things of this world have no place in the lives of believing ones. If we are truly being transformed from glory, to glory then we are becoming more like Jesus. This process of Christlikeness is to be our greatest desire. It must become our singular purpose. When Jesus was here during his public ministry he never lost focus of his mission. He was tempted by the enemy to abandon the will of God, but he did not. Many of the saints today are still wearing the grave clothes of the old life because they will not give up the destructive idolatries of the past.

This week's conversation will focus on the returning soldier and PTSD.
When our troops come home it is always an emotional time. It is often difficult to assess needs in terms of priority. Today we will discuss what PTSD is how it effects a returning soldier for combat and how that effects the grief of war.
This is an issue that often aludes military protocal and aftercare for our returning soldiers.
This can also have a significat effect on a vetran's recovery.
Listeners are welcomed to call in.
look at the tremendous power that can come into our lives if we learn how to praise God in all situations.
In Psalm 50:23, we read, "The one who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving honours Me, says the Lord, and makes a way for Me to show him My deliverance. Now what does that mean? It means that if you are in a tight spot right now, and you want God to deliver you from it, you have to make a way for God to show you that deliverance; for God to bring that deliverance. God will do the deliverance, but He cannot do that until you open a way for it and the way we open the way is by praising the Lord.
When King Jehoshaphat was surrounded by such a great multitude of enemies, he called the whole nation of Judah too seek God in fasting and prayer. That was absolutely a proper thing to do.
They prayed to God and, in their prayer, they acknowledged three things. You know what they said to God? They acknowledged their helplessness, they acknowledged their foolishness, and then they acknowledged their faith (2 Chr. 20:12). Now these are the three things we need to acknowledge too. It is easy to acknowledge our helplessness and our foolishness, to say, 'Well Lord, we have got no strength against this situation and we don't know what to do.' We can say that in all situations, but nothing happens, if you stop there. You got go on and say, 'Lord we believe that you will answer us.'
Jehoshaphat prayed, in 2 Chronicles 20:6-12. This is a pattern for prayer, something that we can learn from Jehoshaphat. Notice the seven things he prayed for. First of all, he praised God for His Sovereignty (verse 6). He said, 'Lord you are the ruler over all the kingdoms of the nations; power and might are in your hand, no one can stand against you.' You know when we pray to God, it is good to remind ourselves, first of all, of the sovereignty of God.

Today's conversation will focus on rationalizations in grief.
One of the coping skills we use especially when we are dealing with the reality of loss is how to assign blame for the loss, especially when we are dealing with death.
We will look at some of the most common ways we use this; when is it useful; when it is not.

The Boy Scouts of America in the USVI was served in the early 20th Century through National Council Direct Service. Then the troops later were added as the Virgin Island District in the Puerto Rico-Virgin Islands Council. During the late 1960s & early 1970s, Troop 152, sponsored by Saint Patrick's Church, Frederiksted, Saint Croix, formed a steel band of grammar-school-age Scouts that was managed by Vivian Bennerson. The band toured internationally.
The Scout Association of the British Virgin Islands operates as a branch of the United Kingdom Scout Association, as the British Virgin Islands' affiliation as a British Overseas Territory. The BVI Scout Oath and Law, & other Scouting requirements, closely follow that of the United Kingdom.
