Growth and Change: Glenn Beck

Years ago a young man gave a talk about being called Green and Greenie. It is an affectionate term that often refers to the newest and least experienced person on the team or in the group. After several years had passed he said people continued to refer to him as Green and he took it as a significant compliment.

Green is the color of springtime. It means new growth and growing,” he said. “It means I am not old, dried out, or dead.”

When I hear people flippantly or pointedly go after Glenn Beck for his company shake ups and changes in his programming or The Blaze, that story comes to my mind. Glenn’s business is like a green garden filled with incredible variety. It is growing and changing with the seasons.  It is not an old, dried out, or dead garden. It is very much alive. It is prone to experiencing what every good gardner knows must happen to a properly tended garden: pruning.

Perhaps if people, society in general, and especially the MSM, had more experience as Green Gardeners, they too would become skilled pruners in thought, word, and deed. Then they could recognize and understand the patient, perseverant nature of a Master Gardener in the making as he learns how to better tend to his garden.

Each life that touches ours for good….

There are some really wonderful people on social media. I am so happy to have the opportunity to follow them, converse with them, and share a wonderful virtual life with them. 

When thinking back on Glenn Beck’s 9/12 series of RESTORING HONOR, COURAGE, AND LOVE, having only been able to attend the events virtually, it still amazes me at how many incredible outcomes there were and continue to be thanks to every day people with the same vision. 

In my Church, we have a song that we teach the Primary children: Kindess Begins With Me. And if you couple that with Exodus 19, quoting the first line from the chapter heading “The Lord covenants to make Israel a peculiar treasure, a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation…” you can see how one person doing good is just the beginning of building a great and wonderful kingdom. Even if it all begins virtually.

Lots going on today

The Hurricane Harvey is big news. My folks are in San Antonio and are doing fine in spite of the excessive rain and flooding. My mother said there were lots of refugees coming into town.

Berkeley. Yeah. Still a nightmare after all these years. (And this does not cover the sixties.)

Daniel Greefield. Still my favorite, prolific writer. THE CHURCH OF THE LEFT is an excellent piece. 

My Church. I love it and I love how we are taught to serve and prepare for disasters. And I really love how we help everyone with 100% of donations going to actual aid, not to overhead

 Glenn Beck, I love him too. I love Glenn for setting up his company to model how our Church does humanitarian efforts. Check out MercuryOne.org/hurricane-harvey

Spent the evening with some youth at my Church. They asked questions, we, the panel, answered them. It was a great exchange. 

Lots going on today. Things tumbling around in my head. 

Final thought: I still think life is grand. God Bless America. #Gratitude

Sorting through the news chaos

  1. Senator Mike Lee is one of my favorites for sorting through the #MainstreamMedia chaos: 

2. The Blaze #ThinkTank with Glenn Beck was fantastic this evening. It is one of my favorite #NewsAnalysis shows. This analysis on Last Friday’s Worldwide Cyber Attack was excellent! 

C_51tz-V0AE7rL03. And thanks to Sam (@ArizonaSheepdog on Twitter) for inspiring me to wake up in the morning and go hunting: 

Chocolate doesn’t ask stupid questions or make up faux news.  Chocolate vanquishes chaos.

Know what the Elites are reading?

Almost two years ago I wrote a piece about Why I Bother about being politically active and it applies to why I read and research information that is important to me. And then once in a while I find things that The Opposition are reading or writing and I, depending upon who recommends it to me, may or may not read it. 

Today there was a fascinating interview on Glenn Beck’s radio show. Read the transcript of the conversation here: 

Will the Next Big Revolution Create a Worthless Class of Humans?

Now you understand why, like the Elites, I will be reading:

Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow 

And you should too. You will be caught behind the curve if you do not understand what worthless means and who the worthless class currently is and who will be in it in the future.
