Letting Jesus Wreck My Life #4 - Psychology: Carl Jung meets Jesus
A lot of us like the sound of "choosing reality over appearances." But when it involves taking a hard look at the worst parts of ourselves and comparing that to "together" persona we present to others, we tend to avoid this crucial hard work! Today we look at Carl Jung's idea of the shadow and how we hide our own worst flaws from ourselves by projecting them on to others. This idea echoes the deep teaching of the scriptures. If I am going to be a Christian, I need to be brutally honest about my own sin. Today we look at the relationship between Psychology and Faith, and explore the ways we can distort our thinking when we use Psychology the wrong way.

Politics: Why we all are wrong but the United States is pretty great - and practical steps you and I can take to reduce the division in our country!
This is not a sermon - this is a political essay.
It is an attempt to explain why we are so divided, why the United States is worth saving , and what ordinary people like you and me can change in ourselves to reduce the polarization in our country. I tried to write in a way that would make sense to both progressives and conservatives which probably means I probably just annoyed everybody! Although I know my faith informs my positions, this audio article is meant to be a argument limited to the realm of human politics and I hope it will be useful to you whether you have any faith or none.
