    The Stress That Is Affecting Your Physical Health….And What To Do About It

    The Stress That Is Affecting Your Physical Health….And What To Do About It

    Over the last two years, our world has felt overwhelming. A global pandemic, police brutality, a divisive election, vaccine mandates, school shootings, and more. The last two years have left many of us feeling more stressed, anxious and depressed than ever before.

    In Season #3 of the Generation Distinct, we have entered straight into divisive issues- believing we can discuss difficult issues in a way that leads us into deeper unity.

    But, the stress & overwhelm of this season has still taken a toll on our minds, souls & bodies. To finish this season, we are going to address the way the last two years have affected our health and discover how we can move forward into the rest of this season with greater wholeness.

    Joining us in this conversation, we have Director of the Health Performance Institute, Cory Leman.

    How Do We Deal with Power Abuse & Cynicism Featuring Danielle Strickland

    How Do We Deal with Power Abuse & Cynicism Featuring Danielle Strickland

    It has been just a handful of years since the Silence Breakers were named the Person of the Year by Time Magazine and #Metoo became a familiar hashtag. Then, it spread to #ChurchToo and our eyes continued to open to the reality of Power Abuse happening both in our world And…even sometimes in our Churches.
    We have been so hurt by the abusive power in our world, our generation struggles not to become cynical towards every leader, every politician, every pastor, every person in a position of power.
    But does power always have to lead to the abuse of power?
    To join us in our conversation today, we have Spiritual Leader, Justice Advocate, Communicator & Peacemaker Danielle Strickland. Danielle’s aggressive compassion has served people firsthand in countries all over the world. From establishing justice departments and church plants, to launching global anti-trafficking initiatives, to creating new initiatives to mobilize people towards transformational living.

    The Oxford High School Shooting & How The Community Is Doing Now with Drew Daniels

    On November 30, 15 year old Ethan Crumbley shot and killed 4 teenagers at his school right outside of Detroit, Michigan. . And as of this week, Oxford High School still isn’t ready to reopen. But the superintendent announced a tentative plan early this month to share the local middle school for two weeks.
    The high school could reopen for classes during the week of Jan. 24 after families are given an opportunity to visit, Throne said.
    For every shooting that happens, an entire community is changed forever. Today, we are talking with local Trauma Informed Coach & Local Pastor Drew Daniels to help us understand how a community is affected after a school shooting and how we as young leaders can respond.

    The Legacy of Martin Luther King Jr & What Activism Looks Like Today

    The Legacy of Martin Luther King Jr & What Activism Looks Like Today

    This Monday, our nation celebrates and honors the legacy of legendary leader Martin Luther King Jr and his work that shaped history forever. Today, to honor his legacy and also discuss how we can continue to see his dreams of equality fully realized in this country, we have Activist, Singer, Songwriter, Poet & Rapper Sharon Irving.
    Sharon grew up on the South Side of Chicago, living in the light and legacy of her own activist hero - her grandfather who marched alongside Martin Luther King Jr himself. As she grew up, she began to use her remarkable talent to speak out for justice and equality. You may recognize her from Season Ten of “America’s Got Talent”, where she received the coveted “Golden Buzzer” at her first televised audition, and was chosen by America to compete in the Semi-Finals.
