Minimalism Revisited.

Season 5, Ep. 93

How much does it take for you to be really happy? I started on a journey of self-evaluation of my relationship to material possessions in 2016. I am still in the middle of that self-evaluation. I think the evaluation will be a continual life process. There were two key events in my life that started me down this path. In todays podcast I talk about those two key events and give an update where I am in 2021. My prayer for each of us, is that we will live life with shallow tent pegs and decide to be free, to think and live independently, and to soar above the masses, and follow our King Jesus as champions who live lives of excellence, both in this life and the life to come!


As I was preparing the show notes today, I noticed that The Minimalists have a new documentary on Netflix, "The Minimalists: Less is Now." The link to the YouTube promo is here. I have not watched it yet, so I can't make any assessment about it or its content.

 

2 Corinthians 5:1-10

Swindoll Devotional “Principles”

The ending quote, “Getting started is as simple as asking yourself one question: How might your life be better if you owned fewer material possessions?” is here.

Plain Revelation Chapter 7 Part 2

Season 6, Ep. 115
We pick back up with the series "Plain Revelation" in Chapter 7 part two. Jesus gives us a big word of encouragement to all the saints BEFORE we get into the vision of the Great Tribulation. Those who are really saved can worship God in the all the fullness He deserves and we can face the most difficult trials as children of God because he reminds us death can't derail us and in the end we resurrect and WIN!

Bitter Sweet Symphony

Season 6, Ep. 114
Richard Ashcroft, song writer and lead singer for the British rock band "The Verve" penned one of the most memorable songs in rock history. He fought for the rights to it for twenty-two years and finally won. He said in a way "it felt life-affirming." The lyrics to his song were sadly mimicked in the two decade long battle for his song. He hauntingly asks in the chorus, "have you ever been down?" This podcast fits under the heading "Other Things." My hope is that it inspires you to keep on pursuing your dreams and your artistic creativity! God will push through the things he wants to flourish in spite of the garbage the world throws at you!#bittersweetsymphony #theverve #richardashcroft #urbanhymnsHere are some links to Ashcroft's song, the symphony recording they contracted to use, The Rolling Stones' song, and The Staple Singers original song.

The Amazing Woman Who Brought "The Lord of the Rings" Trilogy to Life!

Season 6, Ep. 113
This episode originally aired as episode 17. Due to the newness of the podcast series the episode was not heard by a lot of people. This is a profound message about an amazing person I had the opportunity to know as a teenage kid. Little could I imagine that Carla Fry would grow up to be the second in command of a major Hollywood movie studio and bring her childhood fantasies to life, culminating with "The Lord of the Ring Trilogy". This episode is worth the listen! Friend, it really is true, DON"T JUDGE BOOK BY ITS COVER - you might just miss a really good read!(On the replay of episode 17 you may need to turn up the volume! The audio quality is not as good, the mic was a lot cheaper at the start! But, I include the original because it contains my heart at the moment. I think the old adage may be "You can't judge a book by its cover, but I quote it here as "Don't judge a book by its cover.")#thelordoftherings #lotr #tolkien #jrrtolkien #middleearth #thehobbit #lordoftherings #hobbit #gandalf #legolas #aragorn #fantasy #sauron #silmarillion #frodo #z #thetwotowers #thefellowshipofthering #bilbobaggins #gollum #frodobaggins #elves #art #y #thesilmarillion #gimli #peterjackson #elf #thereturnoftheking #bhfypCut & Paste Personal Invitation to invite your friends to check out “gwot.rocks” podcast:I invite you to check out the podcast, “gwot.rocks: God, the World, and Other Things!” It is available on podcast players everywhere!
