Offerings

Next Step #674: Azerbaijanis in the Armenian Church at Shushi under the guise of renovation. Archbishop Barkev of Artsakh, speaking from a place of authority and a mystical place. Some basics of civility. “Demanding” from others? Here’s what the punks asked and what we answer: Plainly, what we have to offer the world. Elevate the conversation.

Miracle Heartbeat

Next Step #652: Content – The miracle heartbeat that outlasted the lease. The aged parents and the children on the front line in Artsakh. How 2020 became the best year ever: Thanksgiving. Miracles that shouldn’t be. Quantity to quality and back again: The cycle of life. Parenting books that weren’t read and weren’t missed. The Jesus gift: Christmas the way he wanted. Luke 14 as simple as it gets.

All that’s Found

Next Step #650: “Miracle is a word that is often repeated” in the stories from Artsakh: Psychologist, photojournalist and deacon Ezras Tellalian shares stories from the ground. Listen to a story of discovery (Part 1): Lost and found homes & hope. God on the front lines: Finding peace as the bombs fall. Better than casino odds: time to put up or shut up.

Aftermath

Next Step #649: And when the war was over… Confusion, frustration and anger are all part of a story we’ve heard before Artsakh. Some answers in the aftermath, with a vantage point from beyond, one which once inspired us. Here is a story of hope in the aftermath of a modern day Avarayr, and the aftermath of the US elections.

Intent & Direct

 

Next Step #648: A time portal is opened to reveal a tsunami that was once the reason for Armenian benevolence. How doing unto others is a model for saving a nation. As War in Artsakh, and increased talk of inhumane atrocities and the existential threat, here is some direction toward self reliance and finding a place in the resistance effort. No doubt Tirdat saw something powerful here.

Diversions

Next Step #647: Diversions that lead to devastation are once again popping up as the war in Artsakh enters into its second month of life. Peter and Paul lead into the tragic death of two deacons martyred in Artsakh. You’ve got information, where’s the power they promised? Self reliance vs. the wasted time begging. Playing out the rules of Genocide, this is not war when Azeris target civilians, maternity hospitals and churches. Sports: a cure for gossiping.
