From the beginning of time there has been a God story. In every culture and every corner of the world you will find a creator. Other cultures may worship differently but they all have similar stories. We took a deeper look into some of these stories and delved into the differences between religion and spirituality with some amazing guests. Just remember, God loves people just the way they are.

Today we talked about reason and logic. Logic used to be required in schools to teach children HOW to think. Then logic got taken out of the curriculum during the 1950’s. That is when teachers starting teaching kids WHAT to think. This is a very scary reality that we discussed with our guests today.
When looking at logic we can find the answers for many of the issues that are plaguing are country like gun control, immigration, Covid-19 and many more. What we are seeing from our political leaders are decisions based on rhetoric and emotions. So, we took these issues on with our guests using logic and reason to find solutions. It is time to start teaching logic in schools again to save society.

What is a real blessing? Has America been blessed and will it and her people continue to find God's blessings?
Amid chaos and tragedy, we can find the blessings all around us. Our Off the Wall commentator Wall Mark Griswold showed us how blessings are not always things that we want, but the things that we need. Pastor Allen Jackson joined us to demonstrate how Covid-19 was an awakening time for great healing. It gave people a chance to slow down in life and get closer to their family and God. Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein came on the program and gave examples of great blessings being used for evil. Furthermore, today’s program demonstrated that the events and things that seem to be a curse in life, years later can be the greatest thing that happened to you. We just need to trust in God and treat others with love, kindness and stay true to your values.

The United States is a divided country. Our President Biden talks about uniting the country but do his actions meet his words. The media is feeding us their opinions instead of giving us the information and letting us make informed decisions. Other countries are planning to take the lead because of all the chaos in America, and with all that what can be done about it. Well we take these issues on and so much more.

From the failure of the media to tell the whole story, the suppression of ideas no matter how offensive the truth is not always easy to find. We are talking, today, about issues, concerns and truths that many are afraid of or offended by, maybe even you. We do it with the caveat that we we need to learn to listen, dialogue and be the change we want to see.
We're joined by Curtis Houck, Managing Editor for Newsbusters pointing out the need for a free press, Mark Griswold of the Political Bistro debating ideas and pondering, "is this really unprecedented?" Adam Rizzieri - Chief Marketing Officer w/ Agency Partner Interactive ponders if we are marketing falsehoods leading to system failure. And Dr. Richard Richeart on the God story in it all.

Is our future written in stone? Or do you have the power to change it?
Heather M. Dixon was one of our a guests today, and she wrote the book, Renewed, Finding Hope When you Don't Like your Story. She used the biblical story of Ruth to demonstrate that you can change your current and future situation, and in fact that God wants you to take action to improve your life. Then, Mark Griswold examined whether we can change our future even after we have made mistakes.

Do we have a prayer? That is the question we asked on today’s podcast. We took this conversation from our, “Off the Wall” segment with Mark Griswold. He thinks, “…society kept themselves distracted with things to try to find happiness, but that they are still yearning for a connection with a higher power.” Bruce Hartman came on the program, he said that “prayer is a conversation with the divine,” as well as, “We should always remember to be thankful when we pray and make sure that we observe the answer because it is not always what we want but what we need.” Next, we Twitched with Michael Austin from Christian History Magazine, and he gave us some examples of the power of prayer in our past. Last, the Rabbi joined us to talk about Chanukah and prayer.
