Mike Murphy & Anita Lustrea – episode 336

 

Hi friends! This week on the podcast Mike Murphy joins me and we talk about Hurricane Ian as well as other hurricanes that might enter our lives. We focus on some encouraging breath prayers from the book Breath as Prayer by Jennifer Tucker. There are breath prayers for any circumstance. I picked some that seemed relevant to this difficult week for so many in Florida and beyond.

Gregory Boyle SJ & Fabian Debora – episode 335

I’m excited to have Father Gregory Boyle and Fabian Debora on the podcast.

Both are with Homeboy Industries. Father Boyle is the Founder of Homeboy Industries, the largest gang intervention program in the world. He is a wonderful communicator and his books have been New York Times bestsellers. This book, Forgive Everyone Everything is a bit different as artwork accompanies every entry. It’s almost like a devotional. Fabian Debora is the Executive Director of the Homeboy Art Academy. Fabian, a former gang member himself, fully understands his role as both mentor and artist. You’ll hear a bit of the chaos of the Homeboy world in the podcast. These two guest are a delight and I hope you’ll enjoy the conversation!

Also written by Father Greg Boyle and highly recommended:

Mike’s Friday Rumblings – 09-23-22

This is an audio version of Mike Murphy‘s Friday rumblings. This is a regular post on Facebook that I’ve turned into a podcast. I decided Mike’s words needed a wider audience. You may agree or disagree with what he says, but there is certainly much food for thought contained here. You can friend Mike on Facebook for the printed version or read it below.

Rumblings.9.23.22 

1. Dr. Sharon said it on an episode of Ted Lasso. “The truth will set you free but first it will piss you off.”

Yep. That’s what happens more often than not. At least to me. And you?

2. “Above all, trust in the slow work of God.

We are quite naturally impatient in everything

to reach the end without delay.

We should like to skip the intermediate stages.

We are impatient of being on the way to something

unknown, something new.

Gem Fadling – episode 334

Gem Fadling joins me on the podcast this week as we talk about what it looks like to Hold That Thought. That’s the title of her latest book which is all about sorting though the voices in our heads. You know what I’m talking about! Gem says We are not our thoughts. But what does that look like practically? She gets real and vulnerable about her own journey. This is a conversation you won’t want to miss!

Rumblings. 9.16.22. 

1. In spite of what is being said, to be awakened and labeled as ‘woke’ is a compliment.

2. Rich Villodas, pastor of New Life Church in Queens, challenges us with these words. “The Church is not to be found at the center of a left/right political world. The Church is to be a species of its own kind, confounding left, right, and so-called middle, and finding its identity from the “center” of God’s life.” 

We are to be at the “center” of Go…Read More

Dr. Alison Cook – episode 333

I’m very excited about the start of Season 8. I actually said Season 7 on the podcast…but then went back and counted. Dr. Alison Cook is a favorite guest of mine. She is a brilliant psychologist and writer who reaches over 50,000 women weekly via her blog and podcast. Her focus is helping women heal from past wounds.

On this episode of Faith Conversations, we focus on her latest book, The Best of You: Break Free from Painful Patterns, Mend Your Past & Discover Your True Self in God. I highly recommend her book. I couldn’t put it down. I think you’ll find the conversation enlightening and you might decide it’s time for you to address some painful patterns in your own life.
