On the Frontlines: A Journey Through Ideas and Faith

It’s time to confront two things; the evil afoot in the world and our own power in creating the world we wish to see. In this episode I muse on things that have been gathering and rattling around in my brain and heart for many years.

This video involves almost no slides, and comes straight from my heart.  So feel free to listen to it rather than watch it.  I was having multiple conversations with Nick and Evie and others about these topics and was told, “You should record your thoughts.”  So here they are.

It concerns this; have you recently found yourself grappling with the concept of evil, its influence on global events, and how it shapes our world?

Well, you’re not alone.  This has been a weighty issue for me for months.  It’s the genesis of the “Have you been waking up at 3:30 am?” video I produced and the call to consider community as something we should elevate to the top of our preparation lists.

In this video, I will be diving headfirst into this uncomfortable reality but ultimately land on a very positive idea; we’re actually as powerful as anyone else.  This is a story of creativity and evolution and how things come to be.

Picture this: the world as a giant chessboard, with forces of good and evil locked in an eternal stalemate. Sounds dramatic, right? Well, it is.

This is a story as old as humanity, and it concerns not just who we are in the world, but how we are.  From time to time, things get unbalanced, a fact scribed out over and over again in the bible.  We live in a moment of great evil, and the scales are tipped.
