  • Gayle Scott — Senior Faculty of The Enneagram Institute
    For thousands of years, spiritual teachers from many different traditions have reminded us of the richness of the human spirit and its potentials. But without real self-knowledge, it is not possible to awaken to the deeper truths of the soul or to sustain whatever degree of realization we have attained. One of the most powerful tools for understanding ourselves and others is the Enneagram, an ancient symbol of unity and diversity, change and transformation.

  • Lance Hahn — Author of How To Live In Fear: Mastering The Art of Freaking Out
    When was the last time you freaked out? Like REALLY freaked out, with heart palpitations, nausea, can’t breathe? Let’s face it: we are afraid. Our world is riddled with fear-inducing headlines, financial meltdowns, family crises, and phobias of every stripe. No wonder the New York Times now reports one in ten Americans is now taking antidepressant or anxiety medication. So how do we cope or even succeed in a world spinning out of control? As someone who has battled panic attacks and anxiety most of his life, Lance Hahn can relate. In How to Live in Fear, Lance tackles the pervasive problem of fear and panic head-on by inviting readers into his world. In this genuine and practical book, he invites readers into the life of a pastor living with anxiety disorder. Through humorous personal stories—like losing it on an airplane or collapsing onstage as he is about to preach—Lance will win you over with his transparency. He also shares the remedies that have helped him recover and overcome throughout the years.

  • This Week's Recording Artist: Michele Mele
    Michele Mele’s albums of original material range from jazz to latin, pop and rock. She has also written for and conducted a symphony orchestra as well as large choral ensembles. Her widely acclaimed one woman show "Naked on the Rocks" displays her talents as a singer, songwriter and pianist and speaks a powerful musical and personal message. Her voice has been compared to Ani DiFranco by the 20-year-old set and to Peggy Lee by older jazzers, but she is, however, a true original with a vibrancy of her own.

Pub Crawl

  • Drew & His Mates Crack Open A Few! — PART 1
    Current affairs, pop culture, even touchy-feely-relational stuff! Listen in OR call and join us, as we crawl from topic to topic!
    Got a topic you want the gang from the pub to crack open? (Click here)

    This Week on The Pub Crawl:

    Steve Austin - Speaker, Writer, & Advocate of Second Chances
    Steve writes about the messiness of grace, finding Christ in the midst of mental illness, the struggles with childhood trauma and the ordinary, powerful ways God heals us. He also complains about how it sucks to be a Christian right now, but how he’s doing it anyway.

    David Peck - Social Justice Guru
    David Peck is a Canadian international development consultant, public speaker and writer, who is active in the academic, entertainment, and international development sectors. He is the Founder of SoChange, a regular contributor to Rabble.ca, and The MindMarket, and a lecturer at Humber College in Hamilton, Ontario. He has worked with Stephen Lewis, David Miller, Jigme Thinley, Plan Canada and UNICEF.

    Today's Topics:

    1/ Would you have a problem with someone who may “feel like a natural woman” but is biologically a man, using the Ladies Room? (or vice versa) #BoycottTarget has reached over 500,000 signatures after Target recently announced that transgender customers may use the restroom that “corresponds with their gender identity.” The American Family Association then announced the boycott, saying, “Target’s policy is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims. Target’s dangerous new policy poses a danger to wives and daughters.”

    2/ Bono thinks Christian music sucks - as in it's shallow & dishonest. Do you agree?
    Bono was chatting with theologian Eugene Peterson in the newly released documentary, THE PSALMS. The lead singer of U2 said, “The psalmist is brutally honest about the explosive joy that he’s feeling and the deep sorrow or confusion. And I often think, ‘Gosh, well, why isn’t church music more like that?’ Bono goes on to say that he hopes this documentary might “inspire people who are writing these beautiful… gospel songs, to write a song about their bad marriage. Write a song about how they’re pissed off at the government. Because that’s what God wants from you, the truth. And that truthfulness .... will blow things apart. Why I am suspicious of Christians is because of this lack of realism, and I’d love to see more of that — in art and in life and in music.”
