Today we're talking with Rita's cousin-in-law, Lauren. Lauren recently lost her dad due to complications from Covid. We listen in and ask questions as she bravely shares their family's experience and the challenges they faced getting the care her dad required. Rita acted as an advocate for the family and explains what that was like as well.
Thank you, Lauren, for sharing.

Today we're discussing a buffet of topics, rapid-fire style. We're starting with the Freedom Convoy, moving onto hospital stats and then just asking some questions that should seriously be asked.

A frequent conversation in our circles over the past while has been regarding what our role is in the pursuit of justice.
Justice, in simple terms, is putting things right. Clearly, as humans, we will never get it all right. But while we wait for the perfect justice that IS coming from our Lord, we can and should do our best to actively move against injustice that we see inflicted upon our fellow image-bearers.
We discuss the role of Christians throughout history in the fight against injustice, and while times and situations change, God never does. His call to us is the same today as always: learn to do good; seek justice; correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless; plead the widow's cause; love kindness, walk humbly with your God.

We live in a world that's all about awareness. It seems we're told that if only we could learn more about the plight of every person, disease, race, orientation, or catastrophe, the world would be a better place. But does knowledge alone fix anything? The goal for awareness should be to move people towards true action. But what does action beyond awareness look like? We also caution that when awareness is done really wrong, it simply leads to harm and division.
This conversation is, ironically, about raising "awareness" about the possible pitfalls of awareness done wrong. Our hope is to also lay some groundwork for going beyond just "awareness" to true action about the things you are passionate about.

This is the first episode that Rita and Cecily sat down to record together in 2022. Because of that, we talk about why we started the podcast, and what our goals for the podcast are this year. Our goals have nothing to do with metrics, and everything to do with values, faithfulness, our approach to life and our prayer for our listeners.

This Interview with Tommy John is a must-listen. There is so much to learn from his anything-but-mainstream way of thinking about the miraculous nature of the body and healing.
Tommy gives us the details on burning his degrees, insight into what he means by “you heal you”, a run through the “8 essentials” and just some really good thought provoking conversation.
