This week someone brought Naomi Wolf’s Sub Stack post, “Have the Ancient Gods Returned?,” to my attention. The narrative presented ran counter to my understanding of how we arrived at this point in history. After reading it, I felt like I needed to talk it out, and I’m grateful that my friend Cliff Gomes offered to be a sounding board. We had a great three-hour discussion yesterday and streamed it tonight. Give it a listen. You might come away with a few tools you can use to navigate your way through these traumatic times.
If you want to revisit the segments I pulled for the discussion, here’s the slide deck.
Near the end of the session, we began to talk about the map I made linking management consultant Peter Drucker to Bob Buford and the Protestant mega-church movement in the 1980s and ran out of time. I think we’ll go back and revisit it in more detail, but until then you can use this link to explore.
The short video below is from Cliff’s channel. It’s about our ability to choose where we stand and how to be responsible for our feelings. He thought it would be a nice addition to this post. I agree.
