    1. 1:00 What if you knew what you were put on this planet for?

      John 6

      "Therefore when Jesus perceived that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king. He departed again to the mountain by Himself alone." John 6:15

      That's not what Jesus was here to do yet, so he goes to the mountain. The disciples get into a storm, and see Jesus walking on the water.

      It's not enough to just come to the meetings. The most important thing we can do in our lives is to come to know God.

      When God shifts you from a limited earthly view point to the eternal view point, you have to go fluid, like the wind, move into that dimension. Childlike wonder. Surrender to what God has already done.

      What offends you in the bible, or what God has done with you? It will reveal where God wants to meet you? There's a control issue being challenged and a fear issue being revealed. Emotions are the sweat glands of the soul. You have to process them or they will become BO.

      You need to practice Jesus.

      Offence leads to disengagement if there is not reconciliation.

      Doorways: Offence, Intrigue, Interest, Need.


      Prayer:

      Father. This is a company of endurers. And we are endurers. And I don't know why you want to help us so much, to realise that is in your living word, experience in the spirit, that life transformation takes place, and the circumstances we go through are actually the back-drop to discover you, and if we find you in the circumstance, the circumstance becomes something we can be grateful for, because it really doesn't matter what we went through as long as we find you. And yet we go through, we collect shame, and reproach, confusion, we have our accuser come in and tell us it's all because You're mad at us, or it's our friends…… and we get disconnected. Would you, Father, in Jesus' name, draw me and draw all of Jubilee, again, to you, Jesus. I'm asking you a fresh awakening by the Holy Spirit to draw us to the one who has the words of eternal life, who is the Christ, the high priest of our confession. I'm asking you to draw me to you. I don't know exactly what you're up to, but I want to be with you. I don't want to draw away from you, I want to draw closer to you, so that I can be with you where you are go through this as you provide for me your resource of self. Even if that frightens me, and it is frightening. Even if it offends me, and it does offend me. I want to be drawn. Draw me closer to you. Never let me go. I lay it all down again, just to hear you say that I'm your friend. In Jesus' name, Amen.

    1. Title: The Reluctant Memoirist | New Republic

      Keywords: south korea, north korea, korean origin, investigative journalism, gathering information, push back, adoptive home, returned home

      Summary: After six months, I returned home with 400 pages of notes and began writing.<br>Something caught my eye: Below the title—Without You, There Is No Us: My Time With the Sons of North Korea’s Elite—were the words, “A Memoir.”<br>I immediately emailed my editor.<br>I later learned that memoirs in general sell better than investigative journalism.<br>I tried to push back.<br>“You only wish,” my agent laughed.<br>As the only journalist to live undercover in North Korea, I had risked imprisonment to tell a story of international importance by the only means possible.<br>The content of my work was what really mattered, I told myself.<br>The evangelical organization wanted to protect its close ties to the North Korean regime and the country’s future leaders.<br>The code of ethics of the Society of Professional Journalists states that reporters should “avoid undercover or other surreptitious methods of gathering information unless traditional, open methods will not yield information vital to the public.” It is hard to imagine any subject more vital to the public, or more impervious to open methods, than the secretive, nuclear North Korea; its violations against humanity, the United Nations has declared, “reveal a State that does not have any parallel in the contemporary world.” My greatest concern had been for my students, and I had followed well-established journalistic practices to ensure that they would not be harmed.<br>They called me “deeply dishonest” for going undercover.<br>My inbox began to be bombarded with messages from strangers: “Shame on you for putting good people in harm’s way for your gain.” One morning, I woke up to a Twitter message that read, simply: “Go fuck yourself.”<br>The ethics of her choice cast doubt on her reliability (another de facto peril of memoir), and her fear of discovery appears to have colored her impressions and descriptions with paranoia and distrust.”<br>My book was being dismissed for the very element that typically wins acclaim for narrative accounts of investigative journalism.<br>The backlash extended well beyond the media.<br>Why did people with no real experience of North Korea feel such a passionate need to dismiss my firsthand reporting and defend one of the world’s most murderous dictatorships?<br>Orientalism reigns.<br>What struck me was not whether the review was positive, but the selection of the reviewer, a former TV columnist of Korean origin, whose only past book-length nonfiction was on South Korean popular culture.<br>As an Asian female, I find that people rarely assume I’m an investigative journalist; even after I tell them, they often forget.<br>Such gender discrimination can manifest either positively or negatively.<br>“If I had written a highly detailed book about being embedded with a troop,” she said, “the magnitude of the actual legwork would have been recognized.” Yet she also believes that great literary journalism combines the heart and the brain.<br>I would like to report that I took the reaction to my book in stride, that I weathered all the accusations and dismissals with patience, that I understood their causes and effects.<br>In immigrant ghettos, I learned that in my adoptive home, my skin was considered yellow, the color of the forsythia that had bloomed around my childhood home back in South Korea.<br>This is why I risked going into North Korea undercover: because I could not be consoled while the injustice of 25 million voiceless people trapped in a modern-day gulag remains part of our society.<br>Here I am telling my story to you, the reader, essentially to beg for acknowledgment: I am an investigative journalist, please take me seriously.<br>
