A great interview with a really smart and funny man to get your year started right.
This week we'll be interviewing Angela Thurston, one of the brightest young millienial stars we know. Angie Thurston is at Harvard Divinity School to deepen spiritual community among millennials amidst increasing religious disaffiliation. A graduate of Brown University, Angie spent six years as a playwright and arts administrator in New York City. She now applies her creative energy to collaborations centered on fostering spiritual growth.
America is changing: Millennials are less religiously affiliated than ever before. Churches are just one of many institutional casualties of the internet age in which young people are both more globally connected and more locally isolated than ever before.
Against this bleak backdrop, a hopeful landscape is emerging. Millennials are flocking to a host of new organizations that deepen community in ways that are powerful, surprising, and perhaps even religious. After two years of noticing this happen, Angela has coauthored this report with Casper ter Kuile. The two are sharing their findings in order to start a conversation. They speak to three groups of people: Organizational leaders, organizational supporters and those interested in America’s changing religious landscape.
They highlight ten organizations that illustrate what is happening. These organizations have a shared ethos. They map out their ancestry, sibling projects, and cousins in corporate America. They close the report with a few considerations for the organizations and others invested in their success, asking: Who are we serving? How are we leading? What about God?
Hopefully these organizations will begin to see themselves as part of a broader cultural shift toward deeper community. By consciously coming together, they could form the DNA of a fruitful movement for personal spiritual growth and social transformation. We invite you to join us in considering how millennials are changing the way we gather.

This week we will have a special episode to give tribute to the life and legacy of Dr. and Mrs. Myles Munroe. On Novemer 9, 2014, Dr. and Mrs. Myles Munroe and seven others died in a fatal plane crash. The other victims of this tragedy are Dr. Richard Pinder, chief pilot Captain Stanley Thurston, Mr. Frahkan Cooper, youth pastors Mr. and Mrs. Lavard and Radel Parks, Mr. Johanan Parks, their unborn child, and Mr. Diego Santiago.
I truly believe that we should celebrate their lives and not mourn for them as Dr. Munroe had always spoken about emptying one's self before dying, and I really believe he lived out his mission. Dr. Munroe was a native from Bahamas and was considered an Evangelical Christian. He was ordained Penetecostal minister who founded and led the Bahamas Faith Ministries International (BFMI) and Myles Munroe International (MMI). He was the CEO and Chairman of the Board of the International Third World Leaders Association. In addition, he was the President of the International Leadership Training Institute.
His wife, Pastor Ruth Munroe was the President of the Women of Excellence Ministry at the Bahamas Faith Ministries Internatinal (BFMI). The late Mrs. Munroe was a woman of grace, wisdom, and strength. They have left two adult children behind, their son Mr. Myles Chairo Munroe, Jr. and their daughter Ms. Charisa Munroe.
Arrangements are being made for Dr. and Mrs. Myles Munroe as well as the other victims of the accident. Please show love and respect to the fallen leaders and warriors in the Christian faith. As we reflect on their lives, let us look to them to leave our own legacy behind.

#MyRealTalkRadio Interviews Dance Moms Star: Dr. Holly Hatcher-Frazier.......
Dr. Holly Hatcher-Frazier is a member of Lifetime’s hit reality show, Dance Moms. Inspired by her own childhood dance experiences, Dr. Holly enrolled her daughter Nia in the Abby Lee Dance Studio to foster Nia’s love for the performing arts.
Having worked as an educator for nearly 20 years, Dr. Holly served as the Director of Admissions at the Ellis School in Pittsburgh, Pa., and later accepted the position as principal of the Winchester Thurston School in Pittsburgh. A consummate professional, Dr. Holly often received criticism on Dance Moms related to her desire to maintain her career, while supporting Nia’s dance aspirations. She made the tough decision to resign from her duties as principal to embrace motherhood as a full-time job.
A passionate scholar and advocate for education, Dr. Holly plans to continue her career as an educational consultant and motivational speaker – affording her the flexibility required to remain “hands-on” throughout Nia’s career. She hopes to use her celebrity platform to speak on issues related to education, motherhood, and the workplace; and how women can effectively strike the right balance in all aspects of life.
Dr. Holly is a Fulbright Scholar, and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in History and American Studies from Williams College and a Master’s in Educational Leadership from the H. John Heinz III School of Public Policy and Management, Carnegie Mellon University. She currently resides in Pittsburgh, Pa. and enjoys reading, traveling, and spending time with her husband, Evan, and their three children – Evan, Jr.; Nia; and William
