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.
Oh yeah, I LOVE Pat Gray: Unleashed.
I watch The Blaze on Roku.
Ususally leave The Blaze running ALL DAY because I really enjoy it.
And yes, I listen to the repeats during the day, oh yes I do.
I do miss Raj, Buck, Tara, Will, and so many others.
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.
Glenn Beck had a great show this evening. I love how he and David Barton are teaching, orienting and giving opportunities to The Interns to experience hands on learning with freedom of thought to discover the world around them.
Almost two years ago I wrote a piece aboutWhy I Bother about being politically active and it applies towhy I read and research informationthat 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:
