SORT BY Relevancy
We move from on sphere to the next, not knowing what to espect. Just when we believe we have a moment to rest from previous trials, boom, up comes something else, sometimes entirely different from the last. It's ok though. You see, nothing goes unnoticed by The Creator, who never sleeps, slumber nor even tires. We, who put our trust in that ONE, is alright with every new trial. The answers are always just a smell away, so to sspeak, smile. You have got to love this precious life, yes, the sweetness of the spirit to struggle and meet the challenges with a smile and a strong constitution!!!

Listen to The Gist of Freedom tonight as we talk with Jennifer Nelson a descendant of the historical black town, Boley OK.
One of the first nationally chartered black-owned banks, Farmers and Merchants Bank in Boley, Oklahoma, an all-black town successfully fended off “Pretty Boy” Floyd’s Bank Robber's Gang!
ON NOVEMBER 23, 1932, three members of Charles A. “Pretty Boy” Floyd’s gang made the worst mistake of their lives. They tried to rob the state’s first nationally chartered black-owned bank Farmers and Merchants Bank in Boley, Ok, an all-black town of proud-walking pioneers.
Up to that point, the Floyd gang had been robbing an average of a bank a week, usually without any resistance.
Gangster Floyd had warned his gang members against robbing the Boley bank because, the people of Boley all had guns, knew how to shoot them and weren't afraid to use them. Photos: Boley Council Members, Boley Bank, SEMINOLE NEGRO INDIAN SCOUTS _
They didn't heed Floyd's warning and Birdwell and Patterson, armed burst into the bank early that morning. announced they were robbing the bank and warned "don't pull no alarm."
The bank's Bookkeeper McCormick, saw the robbers enter. He slipped into the bank's vault, retrieved the rifle and aimed it at Birdwell who was scooping up cash.
At the same time, the Bank's president D.J. Turner, was on duty. He loved Boley and was determined to defend it.
When the alarm began wailing Birdwell hollered, "Did you pull that alarm?" "Sure I did," Turner answered.
Gangster Birdwell shot and Turner fell mortally wounded. McCormick, in turn, shot the second gang member, Birdwell to death.

You're not alone. There is a category of anger that is distinctly necessary. It is a moral and righteous anger. Such anger can give us the courage to do what we might otherwise not be able to do. In such situations, we are able to overcome the paralysis of fear. We become outspoken and are able to rebuke the evil and injustice. No longer are we speaking to ourselves and mumbling. Jesus shows us that there are times when we must stand up and speak truth to power in constructive and unyielding ways. God has made every person inn HIS own image and likeness. Therefore, every human life has an inherent dignity. There is now a national conversation with respect to Black lives having equal value. Join us for live prayer at 6:00 AM Mon.-Fri. Dial 714.459.3963.
Let's discuss the disgusting ways that society has sgreed that it's ok to let men do men and women do women. Join the show as we discuss this touchy subject. Call (818)301-5834.
T&A talk with Dan Ilic, investigative humorist & Senior Satire Producer at Al Jazeera America, and Stuart Campbell, screenwriter & actor, on the elements of control and surrender in relationship dynamics. Do overly accomodating men kill our sex drive? And in the modern day are we ok with women submitting and men dominating? Or is this oppressive?

TOPIC: IS IT EVER OK TO DATE YOUR BESTFRIENDS EX? WHY OR WHY NOT? WOULD YOU STILL BE FRIENDS?
Envy is a universal emotion no one seems to have. That is, while every language has a word for it, few are willing to talk about their own envy or even acknowledge it to themselves. Josh Gressel wrote a book, Embracing Envy: Finding the Spiritual Treasure in Our Most Shameful Emotion, to explore why this is so and what we might learn about ourselves from exploring our envy more openly. The basic premise of the book is that the emotion would not exist unless there is some positive reason for it. The book explains what some of those reasons might be.
Josh Gressel, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist and certified Imago couples therapist in private practice in the San Francisco Bay area. He is a student of Jewish mysticism and seeks to integrate spiritual and psychological truths in his work with clients. His clinical work focuses on 1) working with religious adults on their psychological issues so they are freed up to worship God more freely; 2) working with couple’s from a spiritual perspective,
