The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes   Today we are with our friend Terry Hershey and I would like to talk about his most recent Sabbath Moment post titled, See With Our Heart. Only I want to expand the topic to include how a Soft Heart can open a Window to Your Soul.  Throughout my life I have discovered, every now and again, moments that I call “Windows to My Soul.” Typically these moments occur for me when my heart is softened or even broken. Weddings are often joyful moments that soften my heart and allow me a moment to see past my conscious self and grant me entrance through those thin places...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Let me tell you Paul I am most excited about our show today with our very special guest, Tim Timmons—a man that shaped the fundamentals of my Christian belief system so profoundly that I still follow the precepts he taught me almost 40 years ago. Now, forgive me for the, abut to come, longer than usual introduction but it is necessary to establish a context for our conversation with Tim. In 1980, as a man leaning more toward atheism than any other faith system, I found myself in a challenge that required me to read a couple books in the Bible as means to disprove the...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Hey Paul, it’s great to be here with you again at OC Talk Radio after a couple weeks off as I was working in Uganda, Africa. There is nothing that enriches my soul more than serving the poorest of the poor—people that live on less than $2.00 per day in the most rural of villages. And believe me, rural is grossly understated. They live on dirt floors in one-room homes with no electricity, no running water, no toilet and most often 10 to 20 miles from any form of a somewhat urban town. Today I’m visiting with a fellow traveller CEO and Founder of Wells of Life, Nick...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Today we are privileged to have with us Wendy Hooper Ross, a successful real estate agent and residential market analyst. Wendy’s story will most certainly resonate with all of us as we discuss loss, grief and recovery. Wendy met her future husband at an industry event in 2011 and soon became incredibly close friends over the next few years. They finally admitted they were made for each other and began their romance in early 2017. Soon after, her husband’s cancer, which had been in remission for nearly 3 years, came back and they went headlong into the battle together. It...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  My guest today, Marc Ottestad is all about connection—connecting people, connecting ideas or patterns, and connecting to God. And he provides strategies to accomplish those connections. Today Marc and I plan to talk about the most undervalued character trait of all great leaders--humility. First of all, I would like everyone to consider that leadership is a character trait which impacts BOTH leading yourself and leading others.

Show Notes   I have wanted to discuss the subject of the 12 Steps for Life for several months now. I just had not found the expert I needed to guide me through a better understanding of the process. My guest to day is my old, old friend Tom who has been working with the 12 Steps for more than 17 years. Although retired, Tom continues to serve at the Covenant Hills Recovery Center, which focuses on the biological, psychological, social and spiritual conditions of their patients. Tom has worked with hundreds of people with some kind of addiction, teaching and implementing the 12 Steps. As a...

Show Notes 

Today I plan on doing another solosode with Producer Paul on a subject I wrote on a blog a few months ago, which was titled “The Thrill of Not Knowing.” The ever increasing popular speaker and writer Jordan Petersen once asked the question “What is your friend: the things you know, or the things you don't know?” 

I really like that question because I so strongly believe that it is “what I don’t know” that keeps fulfilled. I am an explorer, a wanderer, and an experimenter. 

So you can see why I so resonate with Jordan Peterson’s quote above. My greatest friend is indeed “what I don’t know.”

I wonder, is this true for you as well? I have a feeling that curiosity and discovery are embedded in our DNA as human beings. How else can you explain the exponential growth in technology, the sciences and even the arts as we venture into that “galaxy far, far away”?

And then we have the all too familiar dialogue that opens the Star Trek series:

Space, the final frontier
These are the voyagers of the Starship Enterprise
Its five years mission
To explore strange new worlds
To seek out new life
And new civilizations
To boldly go where no man has gone before

Wow. The very statement gives me Goosebumps. And it has been true for just about as long as mankind has been around. As a species, we are wanderers and explorers seeking out strange new worlds.

So let’s bring in Producer Paul to talk a bit about this stuff.
