Podcast: The Amateur Society – The Fascinating World Of Engineering – 04.29.2019

2019.04.30 AS

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a discussion of the field of engineering! I didn’t study to become an engineer, but recently I’ve discovered a handful of great YouTube channels that have kindled an amateur interest in the subject. Many fascinating questions and experiments are being answered and performed in an accessible manner, and it’s well worth the time to check out these resources. The most important takeaways for me are the importance of practical problem solving and how it can lead to powerful innovation. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Probability Is Hard – 04.22.2019

2019.04.22

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a discussion of probability and how we handle the uncertainty of future events by hedging our bets. Have you ever said that something was possible, likely, or almost certain? Are their actual probabilities associated with those statements, or are we just guessing? It’s a genuine challenge to unpack even relatively simple probabilities, so we have to use our instincts honed by experience in complex situations. Algorithms can perform better than humans at assessing probability, but everything tends to break down when rare events are considered. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: On the Objective – Defeating Divisiveness With Thoughtful Questions – Sam Johnston – 04.11.2019

2019.04.11

Join your host Steven Menking as he welcomes back Sam Johnston of The Sharpening Report to discuss dealing with the divisiveness we encounter in our society in this generation. Whether inside the body of Christ or in the overall fracas of social media, the polarization of language, platforms, and argument have left many of us in a situation where we would rather disengage from the conversation. Unfortunately, this mentality can extend into our most meaningful personal relationships. This conversation focuses on the importance of using language properly and various techniques that can help break down the barriers that have been built to prevent us from healthy dialogue. Thanks again for joining us On the Objective!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Getting Our Priorities In Line – 04.10.2019

2019.04.10

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a discussion about the importance of aligning our priorities. How do we balance the different aspects of decisions that we have to make? How important is having a defined set of priorities? Whether in careers or personal relationships, we all must make an effort to examine what our decisions reveal about our priorities. Incremental improvement is well worth the effort. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Getting Healed – Pastor Gary Wilkerson – Times Square Church – 03.24.2019

2019.03.30

We are not promised a pain-free experience in our walk with God. In fact, we are promised challenges, difficulties, and trials. However, in addition to the eventual eternal healing that the Lord will bring about in the new heavens and new earth, there is healing available to us in this life. Judges teaches us that God left enemies in the land of Canaan in order for the Israelites to grow in strength and courage. Brothers and sisters: we are called to be overcomers! We can only overcome through the power of God, the word of our testimonies, and the name of Jesus. We can overcome fear, anxiety, rejection, and even past wounds. Not only can they be overcome, but Jesus can demonstrate His faithfulness and strengthen our faith in the process. We must earnestly confront and understand these challenges and dynamics in order to experience healing and to make a difference in this generation!

Now these are the nations which the Lord left, that He might test Israel by them, that is, all who had not known any of the wars in Canaan (this was only so that the generations of the children of Israel might be taught to know war, at least those who had not formerly known it), namely, five lords of the Philistines, all the Canaanites, the Sidonians, and the Hivites who dwelt in Mount Lebanon, from Mount Baal Hermon to the entrance of Hamath. And they were left, that He might test Israel by them, to know whether they would obey the commandments of the Lord, which He had commanded their fathers by the hand of Moses.

Judges 3:1-4
