Welcome to another Thursday UNFILTERED blog post, the only blog that ships a bottle of Frankie V’s Orange Habanero Sauce to your mailbox. Okay, that’s not true, but it’s one of the few blogs that doesn’t repeat the tired talking points of the Conservative Right or the Progressive Left.
I’ve written some long, teary articles on how to stay sane during the COVID-19 crisis. They’re all contained in my Survival Guide, which the masses haven’t read yet because it was gratis. (In general, people don’t value what’s given away without charge. They take it for granted. Sad but true.)
So I’d appreciate it if you would send all your friends the link to get the Survival Guide for themselves: frankviola.org/survival
With depression, suicides, domestic violence and homicides increasing since the invisible menace hit and the economic crisis it created, the Guide is needed now more than ever.
It’s also not cool to keep all the goodness to yourself. 🙂
For those of us who live in the West, we are conditioned to feel entitled to perpetual comfort and uninterrupted happiness.
Most of us are married to a certain vision of normalcy. We then lose our composure when that vision is interrupted.
This reaction merely shows that our hearts are attached to a certain version of life. The version we want or that we feel entitled to.
Right now, God is crumbling that vision for many Christians.
So it’s time to submerge yourself in the kingdom of God. Learning what it really is, how it works, and how you can live more deeply in it. And also to prepare for what’s coming.
To prepare and equip you on the above, we created The Insurgence Podcast and also the Gospel of the Kingdom blog series.
Thus far, we’ve published 74 episodes on the podcast.
Here are the top 20 with the number of downloads currently (the numbers do not include YouTube views of the podcast. Thanks to M.C. Biro for compiling the list).
Until next Thursday,
Yours in vision crumbling,
