    The Need for Edgy Christian Fiction Part 2 -- Write Stuff -- 3/31/2014

    in Radio

    Last week we began our discussion on edgy Christian fiction and the need for it. We'll continue our talk with our guest and touch on other areas related to this developing genre.


    Recently I was quoted in an article that's making it way around various writing circles both Christian and non-Christian alike discussing the need for edgy Christian Fiction.


    In the article I state: The current Christian fiction out there seems dull, boring, and unrealistic. This doesn't apply to every single book, but the majority of Christian fiction is very white washed, clean, and shows exemplary characters of sinners who sin 'a little'. This is not to say that we don't need those books, it's good to have a benchmark to aspire to, with the ultimate goal of being like Christ. However the state of the church, particularly in the west, proves this to be opposite. Churches contain people who lie, cheat, and steal. Cynics, skeptics, and seekers sing praises to God, and don't believe a word they're singing.

    I believe edgy Christian fiction addresses this by using the imagination of the mind, with real-world accuracy. It shows saints who go through life far from the peace and wisdom of God, and find their way back to Him. Of course it would have been better if they'd never fallen at all, but we all know that isn't the case."

    What is edgy Christian fiction? How does it apply to us? Is there a point where we can go too far? Join me as I discuss these and other issues with my guest, author and pastor George McVey.

She is a former Miss South Carolina and second runner-up to Miss America. CBS produced a made-for-TV feature film based on her life story, “Nightmare in Columbia County,” which continues to air internationally on cable television.

It became the largest manhunt in South Carolina’s history, drawing national attention. She speaks about the sufficiency of God’s grace, even to the point of forgiving the murderer. 


    Dawn ministers in more than seventy-five events annually. She is the mother of two college-age children, Hannah and Ross. They make their home in Columbia, SC. Her greatest joy is being a mother to her children, but she considers it a great privilege to share her music and ministry out of the story God is weaving into her life.

    Steve Ahnael Nobel: Personal Transitions

    in Spirituality

    How can we come to better understand and integrate the dramatic transitions in our lives?  Steve Ahnael Nobel explores insights from his new book Personal Transitions: Beyond the Comfortable into the Real, a fusion of spirituality, myth, story, case studies, practical exercises, visualization and meditation.  The former director of Alternatives in London, a not-for-profit organization with a profoundly powerful impact that he led from 2000-2012, Steve currently coaches and mentors authors, as well as assisting people going through major transitions.  At Alternatives, Steve helped organize over 1300 events in the domains of contemporary spirituality and personal development. 


    Major transitions can include near death experiences, accidents, prison, war, psychological breakdown, and various forms of awakening.  When we follow our hearts and intuition and expand into new adventures, a major transition can result.  Alternatively, through experiencing times of great uncertainty, chaos and crisis, we can usher in a major transition.  Life may make little or no sense when life shifts, but we are invited to gain a new perspective and live from the heart instead od the head.  Transition is part of the growing up process and contains elements of soul and biology. We are here to grow physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. And within the greater context of global awakening, personal transitions are becoming increasingly more common.

    Indiana's First Amendment Games

    in Politics Progressive

    With same-sex marriage battle lost — waiting only for the SCOTUS cymbal clap in June, wingers are pig piling on a new ploy. In numerous states, legislatures are pretending to protect religious freedom from the inevitable and fearful persecution from dem damn gays.


    I'll kick around Indiana's worst-in-class blunders in trying this ruse. 


    POTUS hopeful, Gov. Mike Pence (R, of course) signed a bill into law that pretty much lets anyone for any reason discriminate against LGBT potential customers. Poorly disguised as protecting citizen's First Amendment rights to exercise religion, it instead is an atavistic license to ignore statutes, case law and morality. 


    Pence seemed to figure the Hoosier lawmakers were being oh, so cleaver in patterning the bill after the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Wrong there. The RFRA was yet another cowardly and ill-considered Pres. Bill Clinton effort to appease wingers.Yet Indiana's version is worse, even legislatively malignant.


    I'll get into the concepts of balancing exercise of religion with both commerce and respect as required by federal law. We can be very sure Pence and his minions are having similar discussions following the nationwide blowback to Indiana's overreach.

    Churches Now Can Prohibited From Worship In Public Schools

    in Moms and Family

    The US Supreme Court has refused to hear the case of Bronx Household Of Faith. This statement is heard from co-chair of Right To Worship Rev. William Devlin "Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has denied our writ in Bronx Household, we will go humbly to Mayor DiBlasio asking him to change the NYC Department of Education policy-the mayor as public advocate marched with us in 2012, we hope and pray he remembers his commitment to faith-based institutions."
