With the events of the present, some Christians are a little worried about the End of Times coming. In this episode I want to share with you a highlight reel of the entire book of The Revelation of St. John. I pray that you will take the time to read it for yourself afterwards with a little less trepidation.
Be careful of being caught up in the illusion of having friends online. Real friends are priceless. A friend, shares with us the abundance of live theater in the DC metro area. Live theater is great and if you aren't checking it out you are missing something. And a prayer for you. join me at http://kennblanchard.com/starfish
acts 21:34 But some in the crowd were shouting one thing [and] others [another], and [because] he was not able to find out the truth on account of the commotion…
commotion: state of confused and noisy disturbance.
There is a lot of noise happening right now and it is distracting us to the point where we are not functioning well. We forgot to listen to our bodies, to our spouses and to God. These are the three points I am trying to remind us about this week.
Remember when the TV used to go off. The TV is used by some to go to sleep but do you realize it is not good for you?
The importance of communicating with your spouse. (listening for understanding)
How to hear from God (again). Get into the Word of God.
Changing the show, going more into the serious problems plaguing my friends as a pastor.
Keep the faith. That means to continue in the committed pursuit of some idea or goal that is worthy but difficult to attain or achieve. It means, "Don't quit in the face of difficulty."
Keep the Faith (Fidem Serva)
eventually things will fall into place, until then..
laugh at the confusion,
enjoy today and live for the moment
accept what is
let go of what was
have faith in what it could be

Lao Tzu said it best.
Celebrating my birthday this weekend with you. Going to share a Gospel Message I plan to share on Sunday, June 26th about "How to Fight Your Demon." Music from my group the DC Gospel Stars called "Put it in His Hands" and just saying thanks to you for your friendship.
Seth Godin said
Do not tell your friends about your nascent idea, your notion, the area you hope to explore next.
Do not seek reassurance from them.
Do not become vulnerable about your tiny new sprout of an inkling.
It will be extinguished by people who mean well. They are trying to protect you from heartache.
There is a very, very tiny group of fellow travelers who can amplify your inkling. For the rest, keep it quiet. Trot out a make-believe idea instead, a pretend Potemkin Village of a project, let them dump all over that one instead.
Keep the other one in the incubator for now. There will be plenty of time for sharing later.
But I disagree in part. I want to share what I want to do and put it out there so you can catch the vision. I want to change the US. I want to teach people how to fish.
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
Like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?

There is not a lot of fanfare for a good man. There are no parades. A man that become a daddy is awesome. Fathers day is not celebrated like Mothers Day is. Brothers this week I honor you.
The Rolling Stones Song, made me think of this weeks show which features tips for those over 50 and those that want to make it that far. Suggestion for those in the creative businesses like music to create their own communities and a bad cover of the title. But I had fun doing it. http://kennblanchard.com/indy-artist-help-whats-better-than-likes

We all go through tough times and this is a short episode to hit some reminders on how to overcome the dreaded “writers block” which works on podcasters too. I didn’t go into to deep. I also hit on some parts about frustration and three common things that make us lose our motivation. These are super deep subjects and I wanted to keep it brief so that it stuck with you. Plus I am overcoming some inner stuff and its best to say something than nothing when this hits a podcaster. The key is not to belabor it and lose you.
Conversation with Max about the UFC, MMA and upcoming fight card. Kenn gives a recap of the Season Finale and tells when the next episode may arrive. “The Last Day on Earth” was the show. Thanks for listening to the show. Ray Charles cover of “Hard Times.”
Riding on the subway got me thinking about how people see themselves. How do you see yourself? Do you respect yourself? Can we tell? What is the difference between self esteem and self respect? Ever had thoughts of hurting yourself? Suicide Hotline is 1 (800) 273-8255 A recap of this weeks AMC’s The Walking Dead episode “East” was amazing. Thanks for listening. If you would like to comment feel free on kennblanchard.com or email me at email@example.com and a bad cover of a Staples Singers classic.
I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living or get busy dying.
This week I wax poetic with a little poetry and prose from JOYCE KILMER AND SHAKESPEARE. Also ten reasons you should try playing an instrument.
Music is good for your soul.

Ted Deeds from the Law Enforcement Alliance of America and I talk about personal appearance as it relates to the law enforcement and security profession. AMC’s The Walking Dead recap of Season 6, episode 13 - Same Boat. and the cover of a Willie Nelson song.
As much as we like to think it doesn’t matter, I have found that the way to present yourself makes the difference between a successful day, getting a promotion or the better job. That is not fair you say. Truth is, your appearance matters. The clothes you wear make a difference. The colors you wear make a statement. We're going to talk about it here.
Thoughts about church fights and an update on the latest recap of AMC’s The Walking Dead. A cover of the Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash.
This episode came to mind after a conversation with my sister and a pastor friend that are both going through something in there churches, respectively. Here are some of the things I have learned.
There will always be some level of conflict whenever human beings gather, so expect it in the church too. I didn’t and it hurt me. The pastor should be the head of the church. If the deacons are fighting the pastor they are out of order. Anything with more than one head is a monster.
I’d like to hear if you have a story or a comment about this subject. 301-828-1414.
Thought for today: Dying churches spend their energy fighting each other and fighting change.
Growing churches spend their energy fighting for new opportunities to reach un-churched people and speaking up for the change that will impact their lives.
