The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes   In his latest weekly blog found in , Terry Hershey explores the words of theologian/philosopher Howard Thurman by delving into Thurman’s question, “What makes you come alive?” Thurman’s actual words are, “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” I liked the topic so much I invited Terry on the show to discuss it. So. The question is: What makes YOU come alive? Several things make us feel alive, but rarely do we address the question...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  We have a most interesting and insightful show today. Our uniquely special guest is Ann Sidney, Miss World 1964. Her new book, ‘Surviving Miss World’ is a searingly honest account of how winning the 1964 Miss World Beauty Pageant radically altered the scope of her life. Born to a working-class family in England, at barely 20, Ann Sidney’s overnight fame reveals a life during the ‘swinging sixties’ few of us could ever dream of. Her win led Bob Hope to invite Ann to join his USO tour, entertaining ‘our troops’ by traveling to Korea, Guam, the Philippines, and...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  We all love the stories of gritty and tenacious people that go “from breadlines to headlines.” That is the story of our special guest today, Roger Smith. From ages 15 to 35, in the world of work, Roger was a very high functioning drug addict. However, eventually he discovered that although “The Wolf of Wall Street” lifestyle was good for a while, it inevitably became unsustainable, and he found himself at rock bottom thinking about taking his life. Today, Roger Smith has become for many of us that “light at the end of the tunnel.” There is hope for the lost, the...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  INTERESTING NOTE: Be sure to check out the very end of the show. Our editor left in the “after-show conversation” with Charlie, Hilary, and Producer Paul. I thought about removing it, but the very brief conversation is fun. ***** In the 1990’s I wrote a book subtitled “Reinventing the Life You Want.” As it turns out the book might have been just a bit ahead of its time. It seems that people were not that interested in “reinventing themselves” when the book came out. Well today is different. My special guest, Hilary DeCesare, has a new book titled “ReLaunch:...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Do you know what makes doing this show so much fun for me? It’s all about satiating my unyielding curiosity. Today we are taking yet another walk through Charlie’s forest of never-ending curiosities. This time we chat with prolific author, Bruce McAllister who writes science fiction, fantasy, horror and thriller fiction, and even a bit of poetry. As a military kid, Bruce lived in many places, where he learned to live the life of an “outsider.” McAllister writes, "The theme of the Outsider, the Other, the Alien in the larger sense, runs through almost all of my fiction....

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  I have heard it said that the “road to success” can be a torturous journey. Truthfully, I have heard it said that the “road to success” can be a bloody path. I can identify with that. First of all, we must face all sorts of external roadblocks such as the demands of other people, saturated markets, finances, and dozens of other obstacles. Today, however, we are not going to talk about external obstacles but, rather, internal obstacles—the ones we often feel almost helpless in managing. I’m thinking about the fear failure and the need to feel like you must somehow...

#254 Mark Holbrook: The Declining Church—What Next? show art #254 Mark Holbrook: The Declining Church—What Next?

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  On our show today my special guest, Mark Holbrook, and I will discuss the issues around the recent (and troubling) decline in church attendance in the United States over the past 20 years. For instance, in the year 2000 70% of Americans claimed to attend some kind of church, and just 20 years later, in 2020, that number has dropped from 70% to 47%--a 23% decline in just 20 years! That is a very significant decrease. Now… I have a few ideas on the subject, and I can’t wait to discuss them with Mark Holbrook, who is an enormously informed “lay scholar” of the biblical...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Our show today is about endings and beginnings AND the of the unspoken time in between the two. Life is one long journey of beginnings and endings. Projects, careers, marriages, and life itself all have an end. Beginnings are typically both challenging and inspiring. My personality type is driven to begin new ventures, loves change, and new opportunities. But I must always keep in mind that with beginnings must also come endings. But, with an end is also a new beginning… even with death. Unfortunately, we all too frequently harbor some kind of negative emotion around things...
