Simply Innocent

 

Next Step #663: The Armodoxy approach to Lent: Simplifying by the numbers. Rules and regulations that form society and stripping them down during Lent. Even a Bible must be paid for: the rules that govern a simple Bible Study. A collection of Riffs from Beethoven to Zeppelin. Childish vocabulary not needed: hear the Beatitudes before it got complicated.

Natural & Artificial Lenten Intelligence

Next Step #612: A first look at some natural intelligence that comes from the time of birth and is lost by the time we start practicing Lent. Lesson for Lent from my 3 month-old grandson. Enter artificial intelligence and deal with the latest in ethics and responsibility. The quest begins for the algorithms to contaminate AI with ethics. Not for the faint at heart or for the easily dizzied. Building a church and not finding a loan? Here are some secrets from the inner ranks.

Sharing Forgiveness

Next Step #561: Getting to know someone beyond meeting personally – a reflection of love is the key. Sharing: Is there a word? What does that say about us? Pope Francis on Love. Elements of Lent: Charity, Prayer and Fasting – a challenge to do the hardest of these (and hint: it’s not the one you’re thinking.)

Expelling the Laugh Track

Next Step #507: Expulsion Sunday is the backdrop of this episode as Fr. Vazken looks at the myth of Eden and the power of politicians and law makers, with attention paid to the placement of the laugh-track. Waking up with inspiration, motivating ourselves in face of violence, Florida and more. Jesus fulfilling the laws of the universe, beyond the Moses stories. And the “prime of equal proportion.” Practical Lenten practices as prescribed in Scripture: a look at Matthew 5 & 6.

Necessary Steps

Next Step #506: Reclaiming the Christian narrative as a preface to relevance and thereby bringing about change. Acknowledging/Disowning Jesus (Matthew 10:32-3) is not a jump to judgement. Video recording Jesus for context: 1000 days not recorded. Some real rules for Lent. Before getting another Xmas: Valentine and Presentation (Diaruntarch) pointing to One who is Greater. The Post, The First Amendment and Reclaim.

Old Church: New Maturity

Next Step #459: Reclaim reverberates: Is there a possible avalanche of reclamation ahead of us? Armenian flag over Standing Rock – a symbol of solidarity and a pointer to symbols that define us. Six months after leaving a parish: An old church matures in a new way. Opportunities to pray (even for priests) are coming up.  Mechanics of building successful work on any dimension or in any field. Lenten challenge regarding perspective. Brothels and more in this episode.
