    Kristina Rake is a deacon of the United States Old Catholic Church. She received her Master’s Degree in Theology from the prestigious Andover Newton Theological Seminary near Boston and has been teaching scripture, theology, and apologetics to adults for over 15 years. In her own search for the Christianity taught by the Apostles, she found the Catholic Church and converted in 1999 after attending seminary for one year. She became Director of Adult Formation for a Suburban Chicago Parish of over 15,000 people. Deacon was in charge of all adult programming at the church, from adult education series to retreats and community events. 


         One of Deacon’s responsibilities was the R.C.I.A. program in which adults seek to convert to Catholicism. Here, Deacon Rake worked with people from all religious backgrounds: from Jewish converts to atheists to evangelicals to Mainline Protestantism to no religious background at all. Her experiences teaching Catholic Theology to people from such diverse religious backgrounds grounded her firmly in Catholic Apologetics. Deacon Rake was asked by groups all over her diocese to speak on a variety of apologetics topics and, for 15 years, she taught theology, scripture, and apologetics in area parishes. 


         In 2014, Deacon Rake entered the United States Old Catholic Church under Archbishop James Long.

    Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After - Pets and Storms

    in Books

    Call in or ‘log in’ Tuesday Evening May 5th at 8:00 p.m. eastern and 7:00 p.m. central time, 6:00 p.m. mountain time, and 5:00 p.m. Pacific time.


    Welcome to the Heroes of Katrina: 10 Years After


    Pets and Storms


    The demographics and statistics are amazing.  There are 2.5 animals (cats/dogs…etc. for every American home).


    When a population of almost a million evacuates an area and is forced to leave their pets behind…the result is 2.5 million animals…homeless…ownerless…destitute.  This was the situation during and after Hurricane Katrina.  Indeed the animal issue was largely overlooked by all the rescuing agencies Federal and otherwise.


    After Katrina, the animal population was largely overlooked within the rescue and aid infrastructure.  All of the guests on Tuesday's show were on the ground and dedicated to the rescue of the animals left behind.


    With hurricane season starting June 1st, this show is timely and hopefully can be used as a resource for the animal lovers of the Gulf Coast.


    Please join us this very special evening as we welcome our returning guest, Award Winning Author Jenny Pavlovic.  We will discuss an extremely important topic....preparing our beloved pets for a hurricane.  Jenny Pavlovic, animal rescuer and author of the award winning book, “The 8 States of Hurricane Kate,” will share very valuable advice and insight regarding the necessary precautionary measures needed to safeguard our furry friends and all animal creatures BEFORE a hurricane strikes. Hurricane season is fast approaching - June 1 through November 30, 2015. It's not too early to listen and learn what to do in advance. Please don't wait until it's too late. Feel free to call in and share, comment, question, discuss with Jenny.

    Bob Fletcher on Threats We Face

    in News

    The story of Bob Fletcher is indeed an interesting one. Once a promotion manager for MCA Records out of Miami, Florida, Bob mixed with music stars and was living the American dream. From his success with MCA Records, he branched out on his own, creating his own record company and two publishing companies. When the record industry began to suffer from technological advances, Mr. Fletcher saw the writing on the wall. He started a small novelty toy company that became a rapid success. The toy, in his words, was developed from an old magicians bag of tricks, which was essentially a spring loaded fur toy animal - a small animated hand puppet.


    Sales were robust, and Bob Fletcher moved his operation from his home to 6,000 square-foot custom designed manufacturing plant where he turned out the little furry toys by the thousands! He was truly living the American dream of being an entrepreneur in a nation where anything was possible. What happened next, however, would change his life forever.


    In the interest of expansion of his manufacturing and sales company, Bob Fletcher partnered with a businessman, and they merged companies. Unbeknownst to Fletcher, however, there was more to his new partner than he was led to believe. According to Bob, this merger was intended and successfully accomplished to create a new front company for a CIA black operations project of international arms running and mercenary operations.


    There is so much more to this story - read it here.


    Meanwhile, Bob Fletcher will discuss what he knows about threats to not just our nation, but to the population as a whole.
