    How We Define Heroes in Present Day with Allan K Patch, Retired Captain, USN,

    in Lifestyle

    The Heroes and Heroines in the media today take all shapes and forms. Aside from Police, Firemen and Military who sign up to be in harm’s way, some are ordinary people who rise to meet extraordinary situations.

    Always more visible are the fictional characters portrayed by Hollywood celebrities; from The Incredibles to James Bond, from comic book superheroes to cinematic heroics, we are awed and entertained.  But what of celebrity mis-named heroes such as athletes – are their efforts heroic- or just inspiring…as well as entertaining?

    Ancient Greek and Roman History was so inspired by heroics that gods were created who not only had great power but were also greatly flawed.   In today’s world we bandy about the term hero without seemingly understanding the meaning of the word.  Football players, basketball stars, actors, musicians…all are referred to and refer to each other as heroes.  

    Retired USN Captain Allan Patch grew up in Plymouth, Mass where he developed a fascination with the heritage of our nation.  Adding sciences to his interest in history, Allan earned a BS in biology from Boston College and a DMD from Tufts University. He then spent over two decades in the Navy, deployed in both Navy hospitals and in active duty with the Marine Corps; and entered private dental practice while serving in the Naval Reserve.  

    Passage At Delphi is the first novel in a series exploring the confluence of the past, present, and future.  He invites readers along for the thrilling ride and explores the difference between heroism and celebrity in the context of past and present culture. 

    Author Alan Patch is here to talk about PASSAGE AT DELPHI, Apollo Series Book 1 the beginning of Lauren and Zack’s epic adventure. 

  • Luther's Crisis of Conscience

    in Spirituality

    Most people think of October 31st as Halloween. But on October 31st 1517, Martin Luther nailed a manuscript of 95 theses (statements) to the door of Wittenberg Castle in Germany, marking the start of the Protestant Reformation. He was responding to the claims of Johan Tetzel, a monk raising money on behalf of Pope Leo X. "You should know," Tetzel cried to the crowds, "that whoever has confessed his sins and is contrite and puts alms into the box as his confessor counsels him, will have all of his sins forgiven. So why are you all standing about idly? RUN, all of you, for the salvation of yours souls! Do you not hear the voices of your dead parents, screaming [from Purgatory] and saying 'Have pity on me ... we are suffering severe punishment and pain, from which YOU could rescue us!" * [The Reformation of Hans Hillebrand: Dokument zum Ablasstreit" by W. Kohler, 1517].  This was the state of Christianity before the Reformation; and before Martin Luther. This Thursday, 10/22/15 at 9:30 PM EDT, we'll discuss Luther's crisis of conscience that led to the greatest split ever recorded in Christendom. Your host, Rev. Rick Anderson, on "Jewish Roots", each Thursday through http:://www.scripturesdramatized.com or through http://www.blogtalkradio.com/fougcrew. LIVE Internet radio!

    Heroes Among Us: Adoption and Vietnam

    in Politics Conservative

    In November, we observe Veterans Day. Many do not realize that National Adoption Month is also in November. Both are very important observances. Those who have served in the military are our heroes, as are those who have opened their hearts and homes to children in need of a family. 

    David Cordeau, a Vietnam veteran, will share his story with us. He miraculously survived many dangers during the war. Now, he pastors a church and travels nationally and internationally sharing the Gospel. He even travels to Vietnam to preach.

    Anne Knapp and her husband, Dan, have five children, two of whom they adopted from Haiti. Their lives are more complete as a result of adding Ednel and Ronald to their homes, but the adoption process certainly came with challenges. Tune in to hear their story.

    Tune in to The Right Voice with Adrienne Ross from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Eastern/7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Central every Tuesday. Become part of the conversation by calling in to (646) 200-3715 to comment and/or ask questions. If you miss the live show, listen to the podcast at any time.
