Naked Opportunity

Through the challenges of 2020 comes a unique opportunity for churches to rise up and think through issues together. And if you’ve lost your faith over the last year, just know there is always a hope-filled conversation to have. 

Stories of overcoming adversity and bringing light to the dark are nothing new. But how we bring those teachings to life is what changes ours for the better. 

In this episode, I sit down with Pastors Michael Gamble and Dwight Edwards to talk about the response of the church during these trying times – and how opportunity brings us closer to divinity.

Show Highlights Include:

  • Why the church’s response to the pandemic, politics, and racial tension starts at God’s table – and how to have the conversations that unite us now. ([3:34])
  • What the history of Christianity reflects about working through hard times – and why this is beyond just reading sermons. ([8:30])
  • The ‘Helmut Thielicke’ teachings about pain and how you can create divine opportunities from life’s struggles right now. ([16:28])
  • Why walking in humility starts by surprising others – and how this makes you a more humble person today. ([21:10])

Respect

You can describe society in a dozen different ways, but ‘respectful’ might not come to mind. A time when you could have an argument with someone and shake hands at the end is long gone. 

Many people don’t see the potential or growth in respecting those they disagree with, but they couldn’t be more wrong. 

In this episode, Dr. Rick discusses how respect restores an American culture and why you should remain a figure of honor and dignity (even with those you disagree with). 

Show Highlights Include:

  • How sitting on the front porch with your neighbors builds a foundation of respect and civility (that everyone in your family can be inspired by). ([0:30])
  • What American history taught us about dealing with conflict and how you can grow with dignity in your next heated argument. ([3:51])
  • The reason the U.S Military takes respect to the next level – and why you should treat others with the same honor. ([6:58])
  • The ‘Nordstrom Way’ and what it teaches you about the importance of being more dignified and less judgmental. ([10:41])

Three Bad Words

There’s a famous saying that you should “never underestimate the power of your words.” But how many people actually understand the magnitude of that power? I’ll give you a hint – a lot less than you think.

Show Highlights Include:

  • The historical damage of words and how to reinforce a greater message for your future. ([0:57])
  • Why passive thoughts cause more arguments – and the simple shift to communicate better now. ([4:40])
  • Why gratification and greater brain health start with turning everything into a google-searching game. ([7:19]
  • The ‘classic excuse’ to ditch for quickly fueling your creativity, getting rid of fears, and taking life to the next level. ([11:19])
