(00:00-09:36): Dr. Marsha Vaughn from Judson University joins Ian for the hour to talk about her history with social work and counseling. She briefly goes into her family history growing up in Tennessee.
(09:36-18:50): Marsha takes a deep dive into trauma education with Ian and discusses ways to slow children’s brains down in order to learn. The environment that kids learn in today is too stimulating and restricts them from obtaining information for the long-term.
(18:50-28:48): Dr. Vaughn talks about censoring and the fearlessness of being wrong. It is important to enter conversations and go about life with a sense of humility and willingness to unlearn things.
(28:48-37:59): Marsha closes out the hour briefly touching on the Willow Creek situation. It is her home church, she can’t just leave the congregation she’s come to know and love. She says one of the things she has learned from the situation is that keeping Christ and fellowship at the center of church is most important.
(37:59-47:01): George Koch, author of “What We Believe and Why” joins Ian for the second half to talk about New Jerusalem House of Prayer, the first Messianic Anglican Congregation in the United States, where he is a pastor. He describes “Messianic Anglican” as a bridge built between the different theological bases. Scripture reference: John 17.
(47:01-56:13): George was a member of the NAACP, and it wasn’t, at all, what he expected it to be. After spending time with other members, he came to realize that the only difference between he and them was the color of their skin.
(56:13-1:05:34): George talks about how Jesus simplified what the commandments are. People approached Jesus and asked him what the greatest commandment was, His response was “Love the Lord your God” and second is “Love others as yourself”. Love is the foundation of everything.
(1:05:34-1:14:51): George closes out the hour talking about the first fruits (Shabbat). Jesus rose from the dead on the day of first fruits, making him the first fruit from the dead, and the birth of the church is on the second harvest, otherwise known as PENTECOST; Scripture reference: Matthew 26. He discusses “The Bait of Satan” which talks about how allowing oneself to be offended is how Satan pulls you into his grasp.
