Lenten Reflections: Embracing Forgiveness and Transformation - Season 5, Episode 11
Join us for a poignant episode as we dive into the profound significance of Forgiveness Sunday and the Rite of Forgiveness in the Orthodox Church, marking the beginning of Great Lent.  In a heartfelt announcement, I share my decision to depart from the podcast and social media for the duration of this sacred season, seeking introspection and spiritual renewal.  Throughout this episode, we explore the essence of forgiveness and repentance, key themes of Lent, through insightful articles by Fr. George Morelli. "Forgiveness: The Heart and Repentance" and "The Ethos of Lent" shed light on the transformative power of forgiveness and the spiritual ethos that defines this sacred period.As we embark on this Lenten journey, I also share the profound words of Kerry Patrick San Chirico in "Lenten Transformation," a reflection that resonates deeply with the spirit of this season.  Together, these resources provide a rich tapestry of understanding, guiding us towards a deeper connection with ourselves, each other, and the Orthodox Christian faith.  In the show notes, you'll find links to these enlightening articles, offering further exploration into the Lenten season and its significance in the Orthodox tradition.  May this period of reflection and repentance lead us towards the joyous celebration of Christ’s Resurrection and the continual resurrection in our own lives.  Join us on this transformative journey as we embrace forgiveness and seek renewal in the light of Pascha and Great Lent.~Become a Patreon Supporter!Patreon:  https://www.patreon.com/allaroundgrowth~Like & Follow on Social Media or connect via email!Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/allaroundgrowthInstagram:  https://www.instagram.com/allaroundgrowthEmail:  allaroundgrowth@gmail.comTelegram Group Chat: https://t.me/allaroundgrowthTwitter:  https://twitter.com/allaroundgrowthFacebook Community:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/allaroundgrowth~Discussion Links:Forgiveness (Cheese-Fare Sunday) - Intro Music via YouTubeGreat Lent and Holy PaschaForgiveness: The Heart and RepentanceThe Ethos of LentFasting and Great LentLenten TransformationThe Date of PaschaThe Historical Development of Holy Week Services In the Orthodox/Byzantine RiteBecome a Patreon of the Show! ➡️ patreon.com/allaroundgrowth

Journey to Transformation: Reflections on the Ancient Faith Singles Retreat
Welcome to a special episode of the All Around Growth podcast.  Today, I'm excited to take you on a journey through an unforgettable experience that occurred at the Ancient Faith Singles Retreat held at the Antiochian Village over the weekend.  Join me as I open up about how this event truly transformed my life. I'll be sharing my own personal reflections, hoping to give you a taste of the incredible moments we shared during the retreat.   Whether you're tuning in to reminisce about your own retreat memories or you missed out on this unique experience, this episode is your chance to dive into the beauty of that weekend from my perspective.  Thank you for being part of this journey with me.  I'm grateful to have experienced it with you.  The Ancient Faith Singles Retreat 30+ is a gathering of Orthodox Christians who are at least 30 years of age, unmarried (single, divorced, widowed), and living in the world. The weekend will include daily matins and vespers, and Sunday Divine Liturgy. The group will participate in interactive, leader-led discussion sessions, opportunities for community service, games, and social activities, and free time for relaxation and fellowship.  The Antiochian Village is a Christian conference and retreat center located on 300 acres in the beautiful Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania, just six miles north of the historic town of Ligonier. Owned and operated by the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, Antiochian Village was established in 1978 through the vision and leadership of the Archbishop, Metropolitan Philip, who dreamed of a place where the faithful of all ages could meet, worship, and become closer to God, away from the distractions of daily life.  ~Discussion Links:Intro Music:  Byzantine chant.

Unpacking Community Connections: A Post-Event Analysis of the Freedom Cell Network Meetup - Season 5, Episode 8
Note:  Please pardon the first 10 minutes of poor audio quality.  This is an episode from the road and the microphone was hidden underneath the seatbelt and I didn't realize it for the first 10 minutes or so.  Afterwards, the audio is just like it was from the old days on the road.~Join us as we delve into a thorough examination and introspection of the recent Medina County Freedom Cell Network meetup event. Centered around the pivotal theme "Your Journey, Your Growth: Forming Your Inner Cadre," participants had the opportunity to articulate their personal aspirations and share their experiences in cultivating Inner Cadres. With equal participation ensured through timed comments, reminiscent of our inaugural meeting in November, the evening fostered dynamic dialogue and mutual learning.  Beyond the structured discussions, attendees engaged in informal networking, fostering connections, and discussing the triumphs and challenges encountered in building like-minded collaborations. This event served as a platform for honing strategies to navigate obstacles on our collective path towards freedom.  In this podcast episode, we embark on a comprehensive after-action review, unpacking the key discussions, insights gleaned, and lessons assimilated from the gathering. From individual narratives to overarching themes, we'll dissect the broader implications of the Freedom Cell Network while delving into the specifics of Saturday's event. Our focus will be on examining our progress in forming inner cadres and understanding the significance of this focal point within the community.~Become a Patreon Supporter!Patreon:  https://www.patreon.com/allaroundgrowth ~Like & Follow on Social Media or connect via email!Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/allaroundgrowthInstagram:  https://www.instagram.com/allaroundgrowthEmail:  allaroundgrowth@gmail.comTelegram Group Chat: https://t.me/allaroundgrowthTwitter:  https://twitter.com/allaroundgrowthFacebook Community:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/allaroundgrowth~Discussion Links:The Freedom Cell NetworkFreedom Cell Network Video TrailerWhat is a Freedom Cell?Medina Odd FellowsFreedom Cell Manual (PDF)Freedom Cell Manual (working draft) - more detailsEpisode-298- Starting the Journey from Grasshopper to AntEpisode-148- Bug Out Planning and DocumentationBecome a Patreon of the Show! ➡️ patreon.com/allaroundgrowth

In this episode, we share the highlights of the recent gathering of the Medina County Freedom Cell Network that took place on Saturday, January 27th.  Freedom Cells, consisting of approximately 8 local individuals, operate in a decentralized manner to empower members through education, peaceful non-compliance, and the establishment of parallel institutions.  Our group in Medina has been convening monthly since November 2023, and in this episode, we share insights into our meetup events, their locations, activities, and a recap of the latest event.  Plus, get a sneak peek into what's planned for our upcoming February Meetup!  During the Saturday event, we conducted concise and informative presentations covering various preparedness topics, followed by an engaging Q&A session to delve deeper into the subjects discussed.  Adding to the excitement, we hosted a 50/50 raffle and gave away an EDC medical kit, as well as a knife sharpening kit, generously donated by our Patreon member Kyriaki. The episode concludes with a call to action for each member to establish their inner cadre, sharing progress or challenges at the next monthly meeting. I also take a moment to share my personal goals for the inner cadre, proposing the development of a bug-out plan and documentation package.

Navigating the Maze: From St. Anthony's Wisdom to George Carlin's Wit in Modern Politics Season 5, Episode 3
Join me on today's podcast as we delve into insightful quotes from St. Anthony the Great and the witty George Carlin.  We navigate through diverse topics such as politics, local communities, and the impact of social media, with a special focus on the notorious "Communist China owned and operated Tik Tok."  In the midst of a community dispute about Trump and Biden, we raise thought-provoking questions:  What do we truly understand? What remains unclear to us? Are we open to admitting our lack of understanding? Does any of this chaos hold significance, and why? We explore the willingness to acknowledge when we're wrong and unravel a simple photo that encapsulates my "hot take" on Western/American politics in the 20th and 21st centuries.  This photo sparks a quote and a clip from the iconic George Carlin.The conversation extends to addressing questions, comments, and topics from Kyriaki via Patreon, leading us to unpack the profound quote by St. Anthony the Great: “Which is older — the mind or the book?  And which is the source of the other?  So, to the man whose mind is sound, there is no need for books to attain wisdom.” Tune in to discover my political compass, anchored in God and a life inspired by the teachings of Christ. The exploration becomes clearer as we delve into the life story of St. Anthony the Great and connect it to the landscape of modern American politics.  ~Like & Follow on Social Media or connect via email!Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/allaroundgrowthInstagram:  https://www.instagram.com/allaroundgrowthEmail:  allaroundgrowth@gmail.comTelegram Group Chat: https://t.me/allaroundgrowthTwitter:  https://twitter.com/allaroundgrowthFacebook Community:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/allaroundgrowth~Discussion Links:Anthony the Great - OrthodoxWikiVenerable and God-bearing Father Anthony the GreatA Daily Calendar of Saints: A Synaxarion for Today's North American Church“When you're born into this world, you're given a ticket to the freak show.

Ep. 519 - Finding Solace and Structure: The Power of Prayer
Welcome back to the All Around Growth Podcast!  While we've been on a unique journey in recent months, today, we're returning to our original mission.  Our podcast is a voyage through life's multifaceted dimensions, dedicating episodes to explore each aspect.  Through a comprehensive goal-setting workbook (you can find the link in the show notes), we've identified seven fundamental dimensions of life:  Financial, Physical, Personal Development, Family, Spiritual, Social, and Career.  In this episode, we're revisiting one of these pivotal domains – the spiritual aspect, with the topic of "Finding Solace and Structure: The Power of Prayer."  Today, we'll delve deep into the transformative influence of prayer in our lives.  Revisiting these seven life dimensions provides not just structure to our show but also structure to our lives.  It's been evident that when the show has structure, it extends to my personal life, and today's discussion on prayer will expand on the idea of structure.  Over the weekend, I was gifted a prayer book after attending church, and it struck me how prayer can offer a profound sense of organization and structure to our lives.  This shift in perspective has taken me from seeing religion as a system of control and oppression to embracing it as a source of tradition, community, and love.  In this episode, we'll explore several different themes:The significance of structure in life.How prayer can be a powerful tool for bringing order and purpose to your life.My personal journey of exploring prayer and meditation over the past 12-18 months.A heartfelt story about the prayer book that was gifted to me recently.A brief overview of the various prayer books I've encountered on this enlightening journey.So, without further ado, let's dive into the show and gain some understanding into what prayer has to offer us when we implement it into our lives.  ~Provide some feedback on Social Media or email!Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/allaroundgrowthInstagram:  https://www.instagram.com/allaroundgrowthEmail:  allaroundgrowth@gmail.comTelegram Group Chat: https://t.me/allaroundgrowthTwitter:  https://twitter.com/allaroundgrowthFacebook Community:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/allaroundgrowth~Discussion Links:FREE GOAL-SETTING GUIDE: SET GOALS FOR THE 7 MAIN AREAS OF YOUR LIFE by Dan MillerTheosis - OrthodoxWikiDiscover Orthodox Christianity - Everyone is welcome.  Everyone is wanted.Introducing OrthodoxyJordanville Prayer BookThe Orthodox Study BiblePocket Prayer Book for Orthodox Christians - The Little Red Prayer BookHow to Pray: 5-5-5-1 - Orthodox Christian NetworkBecome a Patreon of the Show! ➡️ patreon.com/allaroundgrowth
