Other Things

Season 2, Ep. 29
This is a vignette of Ida May Moon, a West Texas Rancher that allowed me into her world, there on her two thousand acre homesteaded ranch. She was the embodiment of Texas hospitality! I am thankful for the opportunity to have been able to roam the prairies, creeks, and ridges of The Moon Ranch during the formative years of my life. It really was a once in a lifetime thing.As I mentioned in the podcast, here are some map-codes to give you a look at The Moon Ranch for yourself. The barns are delaptidated or collapsed completely now, but the structures are still visible form the air. Below is a hand drawn map made by my father. It is decades before the internet or an cost effective means of having an aerial map. You can see he did a pretty good job of his assessment as to the relationships between the geographical structures. I found the map in a brown envelope in his old hand made chain saw box. That pleasant find was just a few months prior to the posting of this podcast!Google Map Codes for The Moon Ranch - copy and past in the Google Maps search bar.The Moon Family Cemetery Q653+XX Breckenridge, TexasThe Moon Ranch Rock Ranch House Q654+3H Breckenridge, TexasPrimary Barns for farm implementsQ644+RQ Breckenridge, TexasOur Campsite Location Q624+JM Breckenridge, TexasVintage Hand Drawn Map of The Moon Ranch https://www.facebook.com/gwot.rocks/photos/a.311569533556796/311568763556873Podcast email: gwot.rocks@transformthiscity.orgWebsite of the organization that produces gwot.rocks: http://www.transformthiscity.orgTo help support the podcast: http://www.transformthiscity.org/donateTransform This City is an IRS 501(C)(3) and your donation is tax deductible.Advance equilibrium in the midst of an agitated world-tell your family, friends and work associates about the podcast!

I Hate Racism

Season 2, Ep. 28
Violence continues to rage in the streets of major cities across our country like Portland, Oregon, where the impotent elected leaders sit by by pleading for the violence to stop-sitting on their hands as mayhem ensues. Chicago - ten people shot dead over the weekend and 60 more wounded in shootings across the city. In New York City last month, 205 shootings - the most violent June for the city in 24 years. Obviously, the elected officials of our land have resorted to an insane approach to the violence by passive pleas that only embolden the racist, hateful, violent people. God has a better way - the way that works. This podcast defines what racism is and how, through the power of God, we can dismantle it!"Speaking of Jesus: The Art of Not-Evangelism" by Carl Medearis, (David C. Cook Publisher) available on Amazon and other book retailers.CORRECTION! I pointed to the book of Romans with regards to the full of armor of God. My brain skipped a track when I was recording! You can find the full armor of God described in Ephesians 6:10-18. My show reviewer (my wife!) was staying over helping with our new grand-baby #3 and I posted it without her review (shame on me!) but, hey, in my defense, Paul also gives a brief reference to it in the book of Romans as well: Romans 13:12 "The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light." #racismPodcast email: gwot.rocks@transformthiscity.orgWebsite of the organization that produces gwot.rocks: http://www.transformthiscity.orgTo help support the podcast: http://www.transformthiscity.org/donateTransform This City is an IRS 501(C)(3) and your donation is tax deductible.Advance equilibrium in the midst of an agitated world-tell your family, friends and work associates about the podcast!

This episode, #22, launches our second season! What a great time it is to bring you life transforming talks.

If you and I had the opportunity to sit down across the table from each other, I bet you could share a personal story with me about a person, place, thing, or event that turned out to be something other than what it seemed at the outset of that part of your life story."Closing Time" by the group Semisonic,https://youtu.be/xGytDsqkQY8Dan Wilson explains the story behind the song "Closing Time" https://youtu.be/niz9FtJIB2Y"Hurt" by Johnny Cash https://youtu.be/8AHCfZTRGiIJohn 14:6 (CSB) 6 “...I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."Acts 4:12 (CSB) "There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to people by which we must be saved."Matthew 7:13-14 “13 Enter through the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the road is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who go through it. 14 How narrow is the gate and difficult the road that leads to life, and few find it."Home base for all gwot.rocks episodes: http://podcast.gwot.rocks or in the address bar simply type gwot.rocks.Podcast email: gwot.rocks@transformthiscity.orgWebsite of the organization that produces gwot.rocks: http://www.transformthiscity.orgTo help support the podcast: http://www.transformthiscity.org/donateTransform This City is an IRS 501(C)(3) and your donation is tax deductible.Advance equilibrium in the midst of an agitated world-tell your family, friends and work associates about the podcast!
