Taking Sides

Although he’s regularly asked to do so, God does not take sides in American politics.” George J. Mitchell, Senate Majority Leader 1989-1995, Democrat

Personally, I believe that “truth” is by nature quite fluid. However, I also know that my belief in the fluidity of truth is not such a popular opinion. We like to be “right.” We like to “win.” But the results can be devastating.

January 19, 2021 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Show Notes 

In this episode Terry Hershey and I wrestle with the role of spirituality and God in our country’s most difficult crisis in January 2021.

Sometimes clear and sometimes bewildered, we remain at the mercy of our hearts, resting in the attentive mercy of grace.

Truly, this is as vulnerable and as truthful a podcast as we know how to conduct.

For those of you familiar with Terry and me, be assured: This conversation is most like the powerful conversations we frequently enjoy.

Please find hope in these discussions as you listen to two guys grappling with the awkward life we all encounter today.

An Invitation to “Grace” Land

“…the perfection of virtue is born in struggle.” Meister Eckhart

#176 Dena Crowder 2020: The Year of Wisdom

January 5, 2021 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Show Notes 

Well today, Paul, our life coach Dena Crowder and I will wrap up 2020 by reviewing my personal year and then trying to determine “what essential life wisdom lesson did I learn this year?”

Dena Crowder is THE best at digging deep into the inner self to help determine wisdom lessons learned in life.

So today I will participate in a Dena Crowder designed Life Learning Exercise in which she will take me down a road to discover what wisdom I gained from 2020.

This process is always so fun… and just a bit scary as the truth that emerges may be pleasant or it may be a significant challenge… We’ll see…

For today’s episode I plan to enter the show about 5 minutes into the conversation… but you won’t miss anything. Dena is just beginning her overview of the process.

But, before we begin our conversation, just a bit about Dena:

Dena Crowder is known as the most innovative strategist and consultant for creators and leaders.  Her clients include Grammy and Emmy award winners, CNN Hero’s, founders, writers, performers, educators, and upstarts from every industry.

In her latest achievement Dena had the honor of participating as a Ted X speaker, on the subject of “The Power is You.” Now… I wonder how many is feeling that power in quarantine today? Some are thriving while others struggle deeply. That’s what I plan to talk about that today.

So… Paul, let’s join the conversation already in process with Dena Crowder and me.
