    105: Seven Essential Qualities of a Political Leader — Guidelines for Voting with Author David Koyzis

    105: Seven Essential Qualities of a Political Leader — Guidelines for Voting with Author David Koyzis

    Episode Type: Listen to Learn

    Welcome to a listen-to-learn episode of the Share Life podcast. I'm speaking with a former university professor and Canadian Christian, David Koyzis. David has been on the Share Life podcast to discuss his book Political Visions & Illusions and Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

    In this episode, we're talking about the values required for someone to hold political leadership. David articulated 7 guidelines he shared after the Jan 6 hearings, and has resurfaced in a recent blog post about America's current societal crisis, in light of Trump's 34 felony convictions and adamant Republican support.

    In this conversation, we discuss the 7 guidelines and the history that brought us here.


    According to David Koyzis, a would be office-holder...


    must respect the rule of law above his or her own ambitions
    must be loyal to the country's constitution and abide by its provisions, even to his or her own disadvantage;
    must not abuse the office to advance personal financial or other interests;
    must honourably concede to his or her successor when defeated in an election;
    must refrain from divisive rhetoric and undertake, where possible, to unite the nation around a common task of doing public justice;
    must unwaveringly adhere to the truth and refrain from self-justification to cover missteps;
    must be generous and charitable to opponents and supporters alike.

    104: Stop Waiting For Rescue. It's Time To Start Living An Intentional Life.

    Episode Type: Fireside Chat (Blog Reading)

    "We have a responsibility to move forward in our lives.

    In several seasons of life, I've found myself waiting for someone else to take the burden of responsibility from me and do what needed to be done. Part of 2010 was such a season, and after years in the business, I found myself waiting for the company to be successful. I was waiting for the right person to come along and fulfill my vision for the company.

    Here is my journal entry below from early 2011 about a S.H.I.F.T. Moment that changed this line of thinking for me..."

    102: Am I in an Echo Chamber? Are You? Are We?

    Episode Type: Fireside Chat (Blog Reading)

    This is an audio version (Fireside Chat) of my blog post here.

    A powerful way to discover the truth is to deeply challenge our own assumptions of what we believe, proactively seek out competing information and perspectives from the strongest people, groups, and institutions, and invite the strongest arguments against our own.

    101: Lessons Learned Reaching & Healing Those Hurt By Fatherlessness Through the Power of Story & Movies — With Issac Ingram

    Episode Type: Listen to Learn

    In this ⁠Listen-to-Learn episode⁠ of ⁠the Share Life podcast⁠, I'm speaking with filmmaker and philanthropist, Issac Ingram. Issac and I are long-time friends, originally in a married small group together at ⁠Victory World Church.⁠

    Issaca shares his journey of volunteering and mentoring in detention centers culminating in his recently finished award-winning 30-minute short film, True Freedom and I asked him to share the journey to that moment and the lessons he learned along the way. Issac overcame hardship to make his film about healing from abandonment. He highlights the challenges of filmmaking and the power of perseverance and emphasizes the importance of teaching history and freedom to young people to inspire growth and change. The podcast ends with his plans for a full-length feature film.
