    (4.16) Staying Focused on Our Purpose--Like Addison Pratt

    (4.16) Staying Focused on Our Purpose--Like Addison Pratt

    Addison Pratt initiated his missionary endeavors in Tahiti in 1844, marking an earlier start compared to other Polynesian islands, with subsequent missions launched in Hawaii, Samoa, Tonga, the Cook Islands, Fiji, and eventually incorporating New Caledonia into the Tahiti Papeete mission by 1968. Overcoming language barriers was a significant challenge; initially, Pratt relied on a local translator and taught in English, but he soon achieved fluency in Tahitian by immersing himself in the culture and interacting closely with native speakers. His dedication led to the baptism of many individuals, including his translator and sailors, demonstrating his commitment to spreading the gospel in the local language. Pratt’s story also touches on the complexities of navigating the intertwined roles of government and church in French Polynesia. Despite facing pressure to assume political duties, he remained steadfast in his focus on missionary work, even expressing concerns to Brigham Young about being perceived more as a political leader than a church figure. Addison Pratt’s experience underscores the importance of cultural immersion for language learning and the significance of staying true to one’s mission amidst external challenges.

    (4.15) Relationships and the Gathering

    (4.15) Relationships and the Gathering

    This episode emphasizes the importance of relationships in the dissemination of the gospel, using the biblical account of Peter and Cornelius to underscore the transformative power of cross-cultural evangelism. It then connects this theme to the historical mission of 1843, when missionaries were dispatched to non-English speaking areas, akin to Peter’s calling to visit Cornelius. Among these missionaries was Addison Pratt, a former whaler who, despite a tumultuous past, had developed a rudimentary understanding of Hawaiian during his travels. After receiving a patriarchal blessing, he and three other missionaries, including Benjamin F. Grouard and Noah Rogers, set sail to preach in Hawaii. Their arduous six-month voyage took them past Australia and eventually to an island south of Tahiti, where they encountered both hospitable reception and challenges, such as the death of one missionary from tuberculosis.
    Upon reaching Tubuai, the missionaries experienced a warm welcome, leading one to remain there while Addison and the others planned to travel to Tahiti, unaware of the war transpiring there. Instead, they redirected to the Tuamutu Islands. The significance of building strong relationships is highlighted through Addison’s interactions with the Tupoy locals and his missionary endeavors that bridged cultural gaps through language. The text concludes by noting the upcoming 180th-anniversary celebration of Addison Pratt’s arrival on Tubuai, an event that church leaders will attend to honor the legacy of early missionary work and the enduring power of relationships in spreading faith.

    (4.14) Feeling God's Love--Happy Easter

    Title: Feeling God's Love
    In this special Easter edition of our show, we delve into the central theme of God’s all-encompassing love. Our discussion is inspired by the poignant reflections shared in a recent text, which invites listeners to truly feel and experience the divine embrace during the Easter season.

We will look at these references and discuss their relevance to our modern lives.The Comfort of God’s Embrace: As the author suggests, God’s embrace is a source of comfort and reassurance. We discuss how meditating on this concept can enhance our spiritual journey, especially over the Easter weekend.Embracing Love in the Present: The show emphasizes the importance of being present and open to God’s love now, in this moment, rather than waiting for a “perfect” time.God’s Patience and Our Unique Place: We’ll talk about the idea that God’s love is patient and that everyone has a unique place in His heart, a message that resonates with the theme of inclusivity during Easter.Activities to Deepen the Experience: The author suggests scripture reading, prayer, outreach, and contemplation as ways to engage more deeply with God’s love during this time. We’ll offer practical tips on how to incorporate these into your Easter.Forgiveness and Creation: In line with the Easter message, we’ll contemplate forgiveness and the renewal of creation as a pathway to experiencing God’s boundless love.Easter Greetings and Wishes: The show will wrap up with heartfelt Easter greetings, echoing the author’s wish for everyone to have a profound encounter with God’s love over the holiday.Join us as we take this journey through scripture, personal reflection, and spiritual practice to discover the depth of God’s love this Easter.

    (4.13) An 800-Year-Old Prayer to Heal Relationships

    (4.13) An 800-Year-Old Prayer to Heal Relationships

    St. Francis of Assisi once penned a moving prayer that fits so much into this podcast. It's really a prayer to help relationships flourish--both human and divine. I unpack this prayer line by line to show how it can help us improve any relationship in our lives.

    The text provides a comprehensive exploration of the spiritual teachings and life philosophy of Saint Francis of Assisi, particularly his commitment to aiding the impoverished and those in suffering. It includes some of his most notable quotes and a prayer he composed, which underscores the importance of fostering love, peace, and the avoidance of contention in relationships—a sentiment echoed by President Nelson’s advice. The narrative draws from the Book of Mormon to stress the crucial roles of forgiveness, faith, and hope in overcoming life’s adversities and aiding others in their journey towards forgiveness and acceptance of their faith’s blessings. These concepts are depicted as inherently linked, with hope being anchored in Christ, who offers strength and solace.
    The text narrates the story of Anne Madsen, whose unwavering hope amidst physical challenges exemplifies the resilience imbued by faith and hope. Additionally, it portrays a woman whose daily experiences of miracles are attributed to her faith in Jesus Christ, illustrating the transformative power of concentrating on bringing light into darkness, finding joy, and comforting others rather than seeking comfort. The importance of empathy and love in understanding and bolstering relationships is highlighted, alongside the profound connection between forgiveness and being forgiven. Furthermore, the concept that death is a passage to eternal life is contemplated, with an encouragement to share these insights and a sense of anticipation for future spiritual encounters.

    (4.12) Road Rage and Relationships

    (4.12) Road Rage and Relationships

    In this episode, I share observations on the commendable driving etiquette in Tahiti, where drivers exhibit a strong culture of consideration and selflessness by routinely allowing others to merge onto main roads, assisting with parking, and stopping for pedestrians. This behavior starkly contrasts with the aggressive and self-centered nature of road rage, which has been on the rise. The text delves into the philosophical roots of the Tahitian driving mindset, likening it to living by the Golden Rule and underscoring the importance of empathy, healthy relationships, and ethical responses to others. Statistics reveal the growing problem of road rage, but the Tahitian example serves as an inspiring alternative that the speaker wishes to emulate, highlighting the societal benefits of prioritizing the collective well-being over individual frustrations on the road.

Short and sweet

I listen to this with my kids (ages 15, 12 and 9). They struggle with mental health issues (ADHD, anxiety…) and these brief episodes are short enough to hold their attention and simple enough for them to grasp the concepts. It has been a great conversation starter for us to discuss sensitive topics that affect the peace and harmony in our home and in our hearts.
