Perpetual Good


How does it feel when you hear a story about something good happening? Does it do more than just tug at your heartstrings? Does it make you want to tell your own story? To find some good to do yourself? Look at how often a simple story or video gets rebroadcast, and you will agree that people thrive and rely on knowing that good things are happening. The problem is that we don't hear enough about all the good things that are going on. This journey will be to uncover good things that are happening, and not only giving the ability to rebroadcast what others are doing, but spur us to our own good

Defying Time and Circumstance

Defying Time and Circumstance

Have you ever looked back at your life and thought, "if only I had more time", or "if only that one thing hadn't happened, I would have fulfilled my dream"? Delays, prohibitions, jobs, having kids, etc., all valid reasons why things get placed on the back burner, or get locked away, never to be considered again. There is a proverb that says, "delayed hope makes the heart sick, but fulfilled desire is a tree of life." Delayed and unfulfilled dreams, or circumstances that prevent us from fulfilling who we really are can have a profoundly negative affect on us. 

What if I told you that neither time nor circumstance are powerful enough to stop us from fulfilling our dreams? While the end result may look different than we originally pictured it, as long as we hold onto those desires, there is a possibility for them to happen. 

In this episode of Perpetual Good, we will look at 2 people who defied both time and circumstance to see the fulfillment of what was in their heart:

  • Angela Alvarez, the most recent winner of the best new artist category at the Latin Grammy's, at 95 years old
  • Jason Wang, who overcame a past marred by bad decisions and prison to create FreeWorld, an organization who helps former inmates escape the cycle of prison by providing training and employment with respect and dignity.

The Other Side of the Heroic - Real Stories of Real People

The Other Side of the Heroic - Real Stories of Real People

Are you like me when you see a member of the armed services, you go out of your way to thank them for their service? It only takes a second - you can do it and be on your way, letting the soldiers - our heroes - know our appreciation for their sacrifice. It's easy to do... sometimes too easy. Have you considered what appreciation looks like to the soldier?
Heroes occupy a special place in our lives, but sometimes we forget that those we put on a pedestal are, like us, human.
This week, we will hear a little different perspective from some soldiers on being appreciated and elevated, as well as from a doctor attempting to treat victims of a war torn region, as we attempt to get behind the hero's cape, connecting the real people behind the uniform.
