How are you responding to world events (the pandemic, economics, civil unrest, etc.)? Are you waiting for when things get back to “normal?” Things will likely never be the same, which can be an exciting development for some and scary as hell for others. Here is your Intentional Coronavirus podcast on our personal and collective response options. “Second-order change is often described as ‘transformational’, ‘revolutionary’, ‘radical’, ‘disruptive’, or ‘discontinuous’. It involves seeing the world in a different way, challenging assumptions, and working from a new and different worldview.” – Coaching Leaders, UK Dr. Deb’s article on Pleasantville: https://www.intentionaljourney.net/2017/05/03/pleasantville/ Read about the film, Pleasantville: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120789/ Where to find Pleasantville streaming: https://www.justwatch.com/us/search?q=pleasantville Rob Bell’s video, An Introduction to Joy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sA7LmEn3xyc Dr. Deb’s article on Escaping Pleasantville: https://www.intentionaljourney.net/2016/02/29/escaping-pleasantville/

070: Stephany Wants to go to Washington
An honest & respectful discussion about the state of the political climate and culture of the U.S.—reasons Dr. Stephany Rose Spaulding is running for the U.S. Senate. We talk about some of the hot issues (healthcare, immigration, prison reform) in a thoughtful way that is often not present in most media. We get more into “the story behind the story” trying—like many Americans—to figure out what’s happening and what change might look like. It’s a civil discussion, often lacking in this age of demonizing and name-calling. Give it a listen even if you don’t agree with everything. It should challenge you.

When I had laid it on the floor I went to blow the fire a-flame, But something rustled on the floor, And someone called me by my name: It had become a glimmering girl With apple blossom in her hair Who called me by my name and ran And faded through the brightening air. Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
