    in Religion

    Live two hour inspiring show with co-hosts Brother Dave Jesusonian, Richard Stinson, Darren S. Henley and our featured Guest: Hamid Masdeh, who will discuss the growth of Christianity in Iran and other Islamic countries. 


    From the supernal 2097 page The Urantia Book in the public domain


    [Paper:Section.Paragraph]


    149:2.5 The teachers of the religion of Jesus should approach other religions with the recognition of the truths which are held in common (many of which come directly or indirectly from Jesus' message) while they refrain from placing so much emphasis on the differences.


    95:7.6 The strength of Islam has been its clear-cut and well-defined presentation of Allah as the one and only Deity; its weakness, the association of military force with its promulgation, together with its degradation of woman. But it has steadfastly held to its presentation of the One Universal Deity of all, "who knows the invisible and the visible. He is the merciful and the compassionate." "Truly God is plenteous in goodness to all men." "And when I am sick, it is he who heals me." ...

    Good Leadership in Chaos

    in Goals

    Even with chaos, growing in a positive direction is about leading yourself and learning while making mistakes. Start learning to grow in chaos. Lead and guide yourself. There is strength in learning to lead in adversity. The world has many principles and concepts within that change the direction of others to go in negative directions without realizing it.


    Take time to ponder what your inside heart looks like. Take time to ponder how you led yourself in the direction you are going. What has gotten you this far? Will it lead you further or will it only lead you to the next stopping point? How can you lead others while still making mistakes? Good leadership includes learning how to deal with mistakes and how to correct paths. Mistakes don't equal bad leadership. It means there is room for improvement and a chance to continue growth.

    Jody Houser Talks Faith with Graphic Policy Radio

    in Pop Culture

    Faith is the first comic to star a plus-sized superhero! Graphic Policy Radio welcomes special guest, writer Jody Houser who is part of the team at Valiant Comics bringing Faith to life in one of the year's most anticipated comics.


    Jody Houser earned her MFA in Creative Writing at Emerson College in Boston, where she completed her master's thesis in screenwriting and was a winner of the Rod Parker Fellowship for Playwriting.


    She began experimenting with webcomics in 2006 and is the creator behind the webcomic Cupcake POW!, which has updated weekly since 2010 and is currently available on comiXology Submit.


    Jody has been a contributing writer to numerous comic anthologies including Womanthology: Heroic and Womanthology: Space from IDW, CMYK: Magenta from Vertigo, and Avengers: No More Bullying from Marvel, as well as Dead Roots and Rise: Comics Against Bullying. Recently, Jody has written Orphan Black for IDW and Agent May for Marvel.


    Faith was the break out star of Valiant's Harbinger. A psionically gifted “psiot” she has always aspired to greatness. Now this once-ordinary teenager is taking control of her destiny and becoming the hard-hitting hero she’s always known she can be – complete with a mild-mannered secret identity, unsuspecting colleagues, and a day job as a reporter that routinely throws her into harm’s way! Well, at least she thought it would… When she’s not typing up listicles about cat videos, Faith makes a secret transformation to patrol the night as the City of Angels’ own leading superhero – the sky-soaring Zephyr! But flying solo is going to be tougher than she ever thought.

    Converting post-traumatic stress to post-traumatic growth with your warrior soul

    in Lifestyle

    Those who have managed to heal and liberate themselves from their trauma with great resiliency have something in common - they all have converted post-traumatic stress into post-traumatic growth. It’s now a vital part of trauma-informed therapy and healing - this idea that one’s trauma can actually be a source of strength and resiliency, rather than just pain and suffering.


    It also happens to be something that humanity has practiced for as long as it has existed.


    It’s a life practice that is not very easy to digest at first in a society where we expect life to be pristine and perfect. But once acknowledged, it can provide measures of strength and resiliency that you never thought you had and (this is the hard part) might never have found had you not faced the trauma you faced. When you face the fiery gates of hell that your trauma has led you to, no doubt you burn with pain and suffering, but in that raging heat, the inner steel in you cures and toughens. It becomes far stronger than it ever would have been had you not gone through that experience.


    In today's episode we explore the healing process of post-traumatic growth using our warrior souls.


    We're back with yet another day in the life of the happiest guy...my name is Sri. I'm a healer, wannabe writer, failed activist turned stand up comedian, and aspiring mama elephant. And I can't stop talking...
