  • - SO I FOUND IN MY SUBMISSION TO THE LORD
  • 00:00:06.130 --> 00:00:09.040
  • AND IN THE DAY-TO-DAY, LIKE HONESTLY,
  • 00:00:09.070 --> 00:00:12.160
  • WHERE I WOULD GET UP AND BE LIKE, "OKAY LORD.
  • 00:00:12.190 --> 00:00:14.170
  • HOW ARE WE GOING TO GET THROUGH TODAY?"
  • 00:00:14.200 --> 00:00:16.190
  • BECAUSE I HAD TO BE SO SURRENDERED TO HIM THAT
  • 00:00:16.220 --> 00:00:19.160
  • THAT MATTERED MORE TO ME THAN WHAT I WAS GIVING UP.
  • 00:00:19.190 --> 00:00:22.140
  • AND NOW I'M ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS
  • 00:00:22.170 --> 00:00:24.160
  • TO WHERE THE LAST TWO LINES OF THE BOOK ARE,
  • 00:00:24.190 --> 00:00:26.240
  • "JESUS IS BETTER. JESUS IS BEST."
  • 00:00:26.270 --> 00:00:28.260
  • Announcer: CAVANAUGH JAMES, A MILLENNIAL OPENS UP
  • 00:00:28.290 --> 00:00:30.280
  • ABOUT HIS SEXUAL IDENTITY CONFUSION.
  • 00:00:31.010 --> 00:00:33.000
  • NEXT ON LIFE TODAY !
  • 00:00:33.030 --> 00:00:35.200
  • 00:00:39.090 --> 00:00:46.060
  • James: THANK YOU ALL!
  • 00:00:57.250 --> 00:01:00.270
  • THANK YOU.
  • 00:01:00.270 --> 00:01:02.020
  • FOR TAKING MOM'S PLACE.
  • 00:01:03.050 --> 00:01:04.060
  • Randy: GLAD TO BE HERE.
  • 00:01:04.060 --> 00:01:05.090
  • James: OUR SON RANDY
  • 00:01:05.090 --> 00:01:06.130
  • IS FILLING IN FOR MOM
  • 00:01:06.130 --> 00:01:07.200
  • WHO'S FIGHTING A LITTLE WORSE
  • 00:01:07.200 --> 00:01:09.180
  • IT'S LIKE A NON-STOP COUGH.
  • 00:01:10.220 --> 00:01:12.190
  • SHE HAS SLEPT IN A CHAIR
  • 00:01:12.190 --> 00:01:13.250
  • A COUPLE OF NIGHTS, WHICH
  • 00:01:13.250 --> 00:01:15.120
  • REALLY, SHE DIDN'T SLEEP MUCH,
  • 00:01:15.120 --> 00:01:16.280
  • SHE JUST SAT IN THE CHAIR
  • 00:01:16.280 --> 00:01:18.030
  • BECAUSE SHE COULDN'T BREATHE
  • 00:01:18.030 --> 00:01:19.070
  • LAYING DOWN.
  • 00:01:19.070 --> 00:01:20.160
  • WE DON'T NEED TO MAKE
  • 00:01:20.160 --> 00:01:21.180
  • TOO BIG OF A DEAL
  • 00:01:21.180 --> 00:01:22.200
  • OUT OF SOMETHING THAT
  • 00:01:22.200 --> 00:01:23.220
  • SHE'S FIGHTING
  • 00:01:23.220 --> 00:01:24.240
  • AND SHE IS TOUGH.
  • 00:01:24.240 --> 00:01:25.260
  • BUT THE FACT IS THAT
  • 00:01:25.260 --> 00:01:26.280
  • SHE'S NOT ABLE TO BE HERE
  • 00:01:26.280 --> 00:01:28.000
  • AND BRING IT UNDER CONTROL.
  • 00:01:28.000 --> 00:01:29.000
  • WE'RE PRAYING AND SHE IS
  • 00:01:29.000 --> 00:01:30.010
  • GETTING BETTER BY THE DAY.
  • 00:01:30.010 --> 00:01:31.120
  • Randy: SHE'LL BE BACK.
  • 00:01:31.120 --> 00:01:32.180
  • James: I APPRECIATE RANDY
  • 00:01:32.180 --> 00:01:34.010
  • FILLING IN FOR HER.
  • 00:01:34.010 --> 00:01:35.100
  • HE AND SHEILA DO A GREAT JOB.
  • 00:01:35.100 --> 00:01:36.180
  • I'M EXCITED ABOUT THIS BOOK
  • 00:01:36.180 --> 00:01:37.240
  • AND I'M EXCITED
  • 00:01:37.240 --> 00:01:38.270
  • ABOUT OUR GUEST.
  • 00:01:38.270 --> 00:01:40.140
  • BY THE WAY, I'M JAMES ROBISON
  • 00:01:40.140 --> 00:01:41.190
  • AND I WELCOME YOU
  • 00:01:41.190 --> 00:01:42.210
  • TO LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:01:42.210 --> 00:01:44.010
  • HIGHER POWER HAS A NAME ;
  • 00:01:44.010 --> 00:01:46.110
  • IT'S NOT ONLY WELL LAID OUT,
  • 00:01:46.110 --> 00:01:48.010
  • IT'S AN AMAZING TITLE.
  • 00:01:48.010 --> 00:01:50.110
  • IT'S WRITTEN BY A MILLENNIAL,
  • 00:01:50.110 --> 00:01:53.050
  • HE SAYS, "BY CAVANAUGH JAMES,
  • 00:01:53.050 --> 00:01:54.120
  • A MILLENNIAL."
  • 00:01:54.120 --> 00:01:56.230
  • I TELL YOU THAT THIS IS
  • 00:01:56.230 --> 00:01:58.090
  • AN AMAZING PIECE OF WORK.
  • 00:01:58.240 --> 00:02:01.260
  • IT'S FAR BIGGER THAN
  • 00:02:01.260 --> 00:02:03.020
  • THE AUTHOR, CAVANAUGH.
  • 00:02:03.020 --> 00:02:05.140
  • I'M CURIOUS ABOUT THIS TITLE,
  • 00:02:05.140 --> 00:02:07.100
  • HIGHER POWER HAS A NAME .
  • 00:02:07.140 --> 00:02:10.140
  • WHEN I SAW THAT, IT'S LAID OUT
  • 00:02:10.140 --> 00:02:12.140
  • NICELY BUT WHEN I SAW IT
  • 00:02:12.140 --> 00:02:15.060
  • I THOUGHT THERE IS SOME
  • 00:02:15.060 --> 00:02:16.120
  • SIGNIFICANCE ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:02:16.120 --> 00:02:17.140
  • WE'RE GOING TO FIND OUT.
  • 00:02:17.140 --> 00:02:18.200
  • AND THEN YOU'RE GOING TO BE
  • 00:02:18.200 --> 00:02:19.210
  • LISTENING TO CAVANAUGH.
  • 00:02:19.210 --> 00:02:21.050
  • I THINK THIS IS A BOOK
  • 00:02:21.050 --> 00:02:22.100
  • THAT EVERY MILLENNIAL
  • 00:02:22.100 --> 00:02:23.120
  • ON THE PLANET OUGHT TO READ.
  • 00:02:23.120 --> 00:02:24.220
  • I THINK THAT EVERY PASTOR
  • 00:02:24.220 --> 00:02:26.020
  • AND CHURCH OUGHT TO SAY,
  • 00:02:26.020 --> 00:02:27.080
  • "YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:02:27.080 --> 00:02:28.190
  • I'M GOING GET THE MILLENNIALS
  • 00:02:28.190 --> 00:02:29.270
  • IN MY CHURCH TO READ THIS
  • 00:02:29.270 --> 00:02:31.010
  • AND THEN WE'LL TALK ABOUT IT."
  • 00:02:31.010 --> 00:02:33.030
  • WOULD YOU WELCOME THE AUTHOR
  • 00:02:33.030 --> 00:02:35.090
  • OF HIGHER POWER HAS A NAME ,
  • 00:02:35.090 --> 00:02:36.260
  • CAVANAUGH JAMES.
  • 00:02:36.260 --> 00:02:39.110
  • GLAD TO SEE YOU.
  • 00:02:39.130 --> 00:02:42.130
  • I'M AMAZED!
  • 00:02:42.130 --> 00:02:44.020
  • I WROTE A BOOK CALLED
  • 00:02:44.020 --> 00:02:45.090
  • LIVING AMAZED .
  • 00:02:45.090 --> 00:02:46.190
  • I LIVE AMAZED.
  • 00:02:46.190 --> 00:02:47.250
  • YOU'RE PART OF ME
  • 00:02:47.250 --> 00:02:48.260
  • LIVING AMAZED .
  • 00:02:48.260 --> 00:02:50.060
  • WATCHING WHAT GOD HAS DONE
  • 00:02:50.060 --> 00:02:51.090
  • IN YOUR LIFE IS AMAZING.
  • 00:02:51.090 --> 00:02:52.270
  • IT IS NOT LIKE MY AMAZING LIFE
  • 00:02:52.270 --> 00:02:54.270
  • HAD MUCH TO DO WITH IT.
  • 00:02:54.270 --> 00:02:56.090
  • IT DIDN'T.
  • 00:02:56.090 --> 00:02:57.260
  • YOU WENT ON A JOURNEY,
  • 00:02:57.260 --> 00:02:59.070
  • PROBABLY SOMETIMES YOU THOUGHT
  • 00:02:59.070 --> 00:03:00.130
  • YOU WERE VERY MUCH ALONE,
  • 00:03:00.130 --> 00:03:02.170
  • AND SOMETHING HAPPENED
  • 00:03:02.170 --> 00:03:03.230
  • THAT WAS AMAZING
  • 00:03:03.230 --> 00:03:05.080
  • AND YOU WROTE THIS.
  • 00:03:05.080 --> 00:03:06.180
  • SO LET ME JUST SAY
  • 00:03:06.180 --> 00:03:07.190
  • YOU'RE WELCOME BUT TELL US
  • 00:03:07.190 --> 00:03:08.230
  • WHY THIS TITLE?
  • 00:03:08.230 --> 00:03:10.040
  • WHERE DID IT COME FROM
  • 00:03:10.040 --> 00:03:11.060
  • Cavanaugh: FIRST OF ALL,
  • 00:03:12.090 --> 00:03:13.100
  • THANK YOU SO MUCH
  • 00:03:13.100 --> 00:03:14.120
  • FOR HAVING ME HERE.
  • 00:03:14.120 --> 00:03:15.140
  • THIS FEELS A LITTLE BIT LIKE
  • 00:03:15.140 --> 00:03:16.160
  • KISMET AND JUST THE LORD
  • 00:03:16.160 --> 00:03:17.180
  • COMING TOGETHER.
  • 00:03:17.180 --> 00:03:19.040
  • BUT THE TITLE CAME BECAUSE
  • 00:03:20.130 --> 00:03:21.270
  • I WAS LIVING IN L.A.
  • 00:03:21.270 --> 00:03:23.020
  • AT THE TIME AND I WAS
  • 00:03:23.020 --> 00:03:24.030
  • AT AN IMPROV SCHOOL
  • 00:03:24.030 --> 00:03:25.040
  • CALLED "THE GROUNDLINGS."
  • 00:03:25.040 --> 00:03:26.140
  • I WAS KIND OF THROWING MYSELF
  • 00:03:26.140 --> 00:03:27.190
  • INTO THE ENTERTAINMENT
  • 00:03:27.190 --> 00:03:28.230
  • INDUSTRY AS MUCH AS I COULD.
  • 00:03:28.230 --> 00:03:30.150
  • THE MORE THAT I GOT
  • 00:03:30.150 --> 00:03:31.230
  • TO KNOW PEOPLE THE MORE
  • 00:03:31.230 --> 00:03:32.270
  • I STARTED ENTERING
  • 00:03:32.270 --> 00:03:34.130
  • INTO RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:03:34.130 --> 00:03:35.150
  • AND FRIENDSHIP WITH PEOPLE
  • 00:03:35.150 --> 00:03:36.190
  • THAT WERE VERY DIFFERENT
  • 00:03:36.190 --> 00:03:38.000
  • THAN FRIENDS I HAD GROWING UP
  • 00:03:38.000 --> 00:03:39.190
  • IN THE BIBLE BELT,
  • 00:03:39.190 --> 00:03:41.090
  • AND VERY DIFFERENT WALKS
  • 00:03:41.090 --> 00:03:42.120
  • OF LIFE --
  • 00:03:42.120 --> 00:03:43.270
  • AND UPBRINGING IN GENERAL.
  • 00:03:43.270 --> 00:03:45.260
  • THERE WAS A LOT OF TALK
  • 00:03:45.260 --> 00:03:47.040
  • WHENEVER FAITH WOULD BE
  • 00:03:47.040 --> 00:03:48.050
  • BROUGHT UP THAT KIND OF
  • 00:03:48.050 --> 00:03:50.140
  • PUSHED GOD INTO A TITLE THAT
  • 00:03:50.140 --> 00:03:53.010
  • WAS JUST "A HIGHER POWER."
  • 00:03:53.010 --> 00:03:55.050
  • SO WHAT I KIND OF STARTED
  • 00:03:55.050 --> 00:03:57.020
  • TO LEARN WAS THAT THERE ARE
  • 00:03:57.020 --> 00:03:58.080
  • SO MANY PEOPLE THAT HAVE
  • 00:03:58.080 --> 00:03:59.080
  • COME OUT OF THE CHURCH
  • 00:03:59.080 --> 00:04:01.020
  • THAT HAVE BEEN SO HURT
  • 00:04:01.020 --> 00:04:02.150
  • JUST BY HUMANS IN IT
  • 00:04:02.150 --> 00:04:04.200
  • AND PEOPLE BEING PEOPLE
  • 00:04:04.200 --> 00:04:06.190
  • THAT THEY HAVE THEN STARTED
  • 00:04:06.190 --> 00:04:08.010
  • TO TAKE GOD FOR WHAT
  • 00:04:08.010 --> 00:04:10.050
  • THEY HAVE SEEN REPRESENTED
  • 00:04:10.050 --> 00:04:11.130
  • IN UNHEALTH.
  • 00:04:11.130 --> 00:04:13.140
  • SO IT ALMOST SEEMS AS IF
  • 00:04:13.140 --> 00:04:14.210
  • TO NOT SUBMIT TO GOD
  • 00:04:14.210 --> 00:04:16.130
  • THEY SAY "HIGHER POWER,"
  • 00:04:16.130 --> 00:04:18.060
  • WHENEVER YOU'RE ASKING THEM
  • 00:04:18.060 --> 00:04:19.080
  • ABOUT FAITH.
  • 00:04:19.080 --> 00:04:20.270
  • SO AFTER TALKING TO PEOPLE
  • 00:04:20.270 --> 00:04:22.060
  • I REALIZED THAT PEOPLE ARE
  • 00:04:22.060 --> 00:04:23.150
  • WILLING TO SAY THEY BELIEVE
  • 00:04:23.150 --> 00:04:24.230
  • IN A HIGHER POWER BUT
  • 00:04:24.230 --> 00:04:25.280
  • THEY'RE NOT WILLING
  • 00:04:25.280 --> 00:04:27.020
  • TO PUT A NAME ON IT.
  • 00:04:27.020 --> 00:04:28.100
  • BECAUSE THE SECOND YOU PUT
  • 00:04:28.100 --> 00:04:29.180
  • A NAME ON A HIGHER POWER
  • 00:04:29.180 --> 00:04:30.270
  • THEN YOU'RE RESPONSIBLE
  • 00:04:30.270 --> 00:04:32.070
  • AND SUBMITTED TO THAT NAME.
  • 00:04:32.070 --> 00:04:33.270
  • SO IT'S JUST A WAY THAT
  • 00:04:33.270 --> 00:04:35.050
  • PEOPLE HAVE BEEN RUNNING.
  • 00:04:35.050 --> 00:04:37.090
  • I CAN SAY FOR MY OWN LIFE
  • 00:04:37.090 --> 00:04:39.090
  • THAT I WENT THROUGH THAT
  • 00:04:39.090 --> 00:04:40.230
  • MYSELF IN TRYING TO FIGURE OUT
  • 00:04:40.230 --> 00:04:42.030
  • OKAY, WHO IS GOD AND HOW
  • 00:04:42.030 --> 00:04:44.130
  • DOES HE EXIST IN THE CONTEXT
  • 00:04:44.130 --> 00:04:47.020
  • OF WHAT I KNEW GROWING UP,
  • 00:04:47.020 --> 00:04:48.290
  • AND WHO IS REALLY?
  • 00:04:48.290 --> 00:04:50.180
  • SO MY BOOK IS REALLY
  • 00:04:50.180 --> 00:04:52.000
  • MY JOURNEY WITH THE LORD
  • 00:04:52.000 --> 00:04:53.040
  • TO WALK THAT THROUGH AND
  • 00:04:53.040 --> 00:04:54.040
  • HOPEFULLY SOMETHING THAT
  • 00:04:54.040 --> 00:04:55.070
  • I CAN TAKE OTHER MILLENNIALS
  • 00:04:55.070 --> 00:04:56.130
  • AND OLDER GENERATIONS
  • 00:04:56.130 --> 00:04:57.150
  • THAT ARE CONFUSED ABOUT
  • 00:04:57.150 --> 00:04:58.250
  • James: WHAT DO YOU WANT
  • 00:05:00.240 --> 00:05:02.000
  • TO SHARE?
  • 00:05:02.000 --> 00:05:03.020
  • YOU SHARE MORE OPENLY
  • 00:05:03.020 --> 00:05:04.040
  • THAN I COULD EVER IMAGINE
  • 00:05:04.040 --> 00:05:05.060
  • ANYONE SHARING.
  • 00:05:05.060 --> 00:05:06.140
  • IT'S AMAZING HOW
  • 00:05:09.110 --> 00:05:10.240
  • YOU LAID OUT THE BOOK.
  • 00:05:10.240 --> 00:05:11.290
  • YOU WRITE A NOTE AT THE END
  • 00:05:11.290 --> 00:05:13.030
  • OF EVERY CHAPTER
  • 00:05:13.030 --> 00:05:14.050
  • THAT'S HANDWRITTEN.
  • 00:05:14.050 --> 00:05:15.160
  • I COULD WRITE HANDWRITTEN
  • 00:05:15.160 --> 00:05:16.210
  • NOTES, NOBODY WOULD BE ABLE
  • 00:05:16.210 --> 00:05:17.240
  • TO READ IT UNLESS THEY CAN
  • 00:05:17.240 --> 00:05:19.090
  • TRANSLATE LIKE TONGUES
  • 00:05:19.090 --> 00:05:21.090
  • WITH PEN.
  • 00:05:21.090 --> 00:05:24.080
  • IT'S WORSE THAN
  • 00:05:24.080 --> 00:05:25.150
  • A DOCTOR'S PRESCRIPTION.
  • 00:05:25.150 --> 00:05:26.290
  • BUT YOU WROTE IT
  • 00:05:26.290 --> 00:05:28.010
  • AND WE CAN READ IT.
  • 00:05:28.010 --> 00:05:29.130
  • YOU HAVE BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:05:29.130 --> 00:05:31.020
  • PULL-OUT STATEMENTS
  • 00:05:31.020 --> 00:05:32.250
  • BUT YOU ALSO HIGHLIGHT.
  • 00:05:33.080 --> 00:05:36.080
  • ONCE WE START VALUING
  • 00:05:36.080 --> 00:05:37.180
  • A PERSON BASED OFF OF WHAT
  • 00:05:37.180 --> 00:05:38.280
  • THEY BRING TO THE TABLE
  • 00:05:38.280 --> 00:05:40.050
  • THEN WE START TO SEE
  • 00:05:40.050 --> 00:05:41.140
  • RELATIONSHIPS AS TRANSACTIONS.
  • 00:05:41.140 --> 00:05:44.060
  • WHOA!
  • 00:05:44.060 --> 00:05:45.190
  • SEE THOSE LITTLE HIGHLIGHTED
  • 00:05:45.190 --> 00:05:46.280
  • SENTENCES ACTUALLY ARE
  • 00:05:46.280 --> 00:05:48.050
  • A PARAGRAPH OFTENTIMES.
  • 00:05:48.050 --> 00:05:49.170
  • SOME OF THOSE HIGHLIGHTED
  • 00:05:49.170 --> 00:05:50.220
  • SENTENCES COMPRISE SUBSTANCE
  • 00:05:50.220 --> 00:05:53.090
  • FOR AN ENTIRE CHAPTER.
  • 00:05:53.090 --> 00:05:54.180
  • HERE'S ONE WHERE
  • 00:05:54.180 --> 00:05:55.210
  • YOU HIGHLIGHTED
  • 00:05:55.210 --> 00:05:56.250
  • QUITE A FEW SENTENCES.
  • 00:05:56.250 --> 00:05:58.040
  • I FOUND MYSELF SAYING
  • 00:05:58.040 --> 00:05:59.160
  • THIS IS AMAZING.
  • 00:05:59.160 --> 00:06:01.000
  • NOT ONLY IS THE WHOLE COPY
  • 00:06:01.000 --> 00:06:02.220
  • AMAZING BUT THAT CAVANAUGH
  • 00:06:02.220 --> 00:06:04.190
  • WOULD SAY, "I THINK I NEED
  • 00:06:04.190 --> 00:06:05.230
  • TO HIGHLIGHT THAT" BECAUSE
  • 00:06:05.230 --> 00:06:07.020
  • IT WASN'T HIGHLIGHTED
  • 00:06:07.020 --> 00:06:08.090
  • BY SOME EDITOR OR
  • 00:06:08.090 --> 00:06:09.140
  • SOME PUBLISHER,
  • 00:06:09.140 --> 00:06:10.170
  • IT WAS HIGHLIGHTED BY HIM
  • 00:06:10.170 --> 00:06:12.070
  • WANTING TO SAY SOMETHING
  • 00:06:12.070 --> 00:06:13.180
  • THAT WOULD BE WEIGHTY,
  • 00:06:13.180 --> 00:06:14.280
  • YOU NEED TO NOTICE IT
  • 00:06:14.280 --> 00:06:16.010
  • IS WEIGHTY FOR A REASON.
  • 00:06:16.010 --> 00:06:17.190
  • SO THE WHOLE BOOK IS AMAZING.
  • 00:06:17.190 --> 00:06:19.060
  • WHY WERE YOU WILLING TO TALK
  • 00:06:19.060 --> 00:06:20.270
  • ABOUT THE CHALLENGES
  • 00:06:20.270 --> 00:06:22.130
  • IN YOUR JOURNEY BECAUSE
  • 00:06:22.130 --> 00:06:24.000
  • THE CHALLENGES IN YOUR JOURNEY
  • 00:06:24.000 --> 00:06:25.140
  • ARE SOME THAT HAVE COME
  • 00:06:25.140 --> 00:06:26.230
  • TO THE FOREFRONT TODAY
  • 00:06:26.230 --> 00:06:28.050
  • WITH PEOPLE THAT IT SEEMS
  • 00:06:28.050 --> 00:06:29.150
  • THE CHURCH IS ASKED
  • 00:06:29.150 --> 00:06:31.020
  • TO DISMISS NOW AND ACCEPT,
  • 00:06:31.020 --> 00:06:33.150
  • EVEN THOUGH THEY MIGHT SEEM
  • 00:06:33.150 --> 00:06:34.200
  • TO CONTRADICT WHAT THE NAME
  • 00:06:35.020 --> 00:06:38.020
  • OF THIS POWER SAYS
  • 00:06:38.020 --> 00:06:40.000
  • OR THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:06:40.000 --> 00:06:42.090
  • THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:06:42.090 --> 00:06:44.030
  • IT WOULD JUST SCRAP THEM,
  • 00:06:44.030 --> 00:06:45.230
  • CHANGE IT IN ORDER TO JUSTIFY
  • 00:06:45.230 --> 00:06:47.260
  • A PARTICULAR LIFESTYLE,
  • 00:06:47.260 --> 00:06:49.020
  • TENDENCY, PRACTICE
  • 00:06:49.020 --> 00:06:50.070
  • OR COMPULSION OR BEHAVIOR
  • 00:06:50.070 --> 00:06:51.240
  • OR WHATEVER.
  • 00:06:51.240 --> 00:06:53.040
  • YOU WENT THROUGH ALL OF THIS
  • 00:06:53.040 --> 00:06:55.070
  • AND CAME THROUGH NOT TRYING
  • 00:06:55.070 --> 00:06:56.280
  • TO CHANGE THE NAME
  • 00:06:56.280 --> 00:06:59.090
  • OR THE PERSON OR WHAT
  • 00:06:59.090 --> 00:07:00.130
  • THAT PERSON WHO HAS A NAME
  • 00:07:00.130 --> 00:07:01.260
  • STOOD FOR OR SAYS IS BEST
  • 00:07:01.260 --> 00:07:04.130
  • IN YOUR BEHALF, YOU SEEM
  • 00:07:04.130 --> 00:07:06.030
  • TO SEE THAT ADJUSTMENTS
  • 00:07:06.030 --> 00:07:07.230
  • NEED TO BE MADE HERE
  • 00:07:07.230 --> 00:07:09.070
  • WITHOUT US TRYING TO CHANGE
  • 00:07:09.070 --> 00:07:11.040
  • THE VERY TRUTH THAT CAN HAVE
  • 00:07:11.040 --> 00:07:12.220
  • SUCH A POSITIVE TRANSFORMING
  • 00:07:12.220 --> 00:07:14.070
  • EFFECT ON ALL OF US.
  • 00:07:14.070 --> 00:07:16.020
  • NOT A MEAN RELIGIOUS EFFECT
  • 00:07:16.020 --> 00:07:17.110
  • BUT A TRANSFORMINGLY
  • 00:07:17.110 --> 00:07:18.270
  • POSITIVE EFFECT. RIGHT?
  • 00:07:18.270 --> 00:07:20.160
  • WHY WERE YOU WILLING TO SHARE
  • 00:07:20.160 --> 00:07:21.200
  • OPENLY LIKE THAT?
  • 00:07:21.200 --> 00:07:22.260
  • JOURNEY WITH THE LORD WAS
  • 00:07:24.030 --> 00:07:25.050
  • TRYING TO FIND AN EXCUSE
  • 00:07:25.050 --> 00:07:26.090
  • NOT TO SUBMIT TO HIM.
  • 00:07:26.090 --> 00:07:28.210
  • YOU CAN LIVE YOUR LIFE
  • 00:07:28.210 --> 00:07:30.270
  • YOU'RE REFERENCING KIND OF
  • 00:07:32.080 --> 00:07:33.170
  • AN IDENTITY STRUGGLE THAT
  • 00:07:33.170 --> 00:07:35.020
  • I HAD FOR MOST OF MY LIFE,
  • 00:07:35.020 --> 00:07:37.060
  • WHICH WAS SEXUALLY
  • 00:07:37.060 --> 00:07:38.290
  • NOT KNOWING WHO I WAS,
  • 00:07:38.290 --> 00:07:41.000
  • AND REALLY BELIEVING
  • 00:07:41.000 --> 00:07:42.100
  • LIES ABOUT MYSELF.
  • 00:07:42.100 --> 00:07:43.140
  • WELL, IF I TAKE THAT
  • 00:07:43.140 --> 00:07:44.160
  • INTO THE FOREFRONT OF CULTURE
  • 00:07:44.160 --> 00:07:45.210
  • TODAY THEY'RE GOING TO
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:46.260
  • TELL ME AND PUT ME
  • 00:07:46.260 --> 00:07:48.000
  • IN THIS ONE BOX.
  • 00:07:48.000 --> 00:07:49.020
  • IF I TELL THE CHURCH THOUGH,
  • 00:07:49.020 --> 00:07:50.110
  • THE CHURCH THEN PUTS YOU
  • 00:07:50.110 --> 00:07:51.150
  • INTO A BOX OF
  • 00:07:51.150 --> 00:07:52.250
  • STRUGGLING WITH THIS.
  • 00:07:52.250 --> 00:07:54.240
  • THERE'S ALMOST A KIND OF
  • 00:07:54.240 --> 00:07:55.290
  • NOW SIT IN THE BACK SEAT
  • 00:07:55.290 --> 00:07:57.090
  • WHILE THE ADULTS SORT THIS OUT
  • 00:07:57.090 --> 00:07:58.200
  • AND WHILE YOU FIGURE OUT
  • 00:07:58.200 --> 00:07:59.260
  • YOUR OWN LIFE.
  • 00:07:59.260 --> 00:08:01.060
  • THE TRUTH IS THAT I FOUND
  • 00:08:01.060 --> 00:08:02.290
  • IN RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST
  • 00:08:02.290 --> 00:08:04.120
  • THAT IF I MOVED HIM
  • 00:08:04.120 --> 00:08:06.000
  • OR IF I TRIED TO MOVE HIM
  • 00:08:06.000 --> 00:08:07.110
  • TO MAKE WHAT HE SAID TO BE...
  • 00:08:07.110 --> 00:08:09.120
  • OR WHAT HE SAID TO BE WHAT
  • 00:08:09.120 --> 00:08:11.200
  • I WANT TO BE TRUTH --
  • 00:08:11.200 --> 00:08:13.090
  • James: TO ACCOMMODATE WHAT
  • 00:08:13.090 --> 00:08:14.150
  • YOU THOUGHT OR WHAT YOU FOUND
  • 00:08:14.150 --> 00:08:15.280
  • STRUGGLING WITH THAT YOU
  • 00:08:15.280 --> 00:08:17.040
  • DIDN'T KNOW IF YOU WERE
  • 00:08:17.040 --> 00:08:18.070
  • GOING TO BE ABLE TO OVERCOME
  • 00:08:18.070 --> 00:08:19.170
  • SO YOU MOVE HIM.
  • 00:08:19.170 --> 00:08:20.270
  • Cavanaugh: RIGHT.
  • 00:08:20.270 --> 00:08:21.270
  • YOU MOVE HIM.
  • 00:08:21.270 --> 00:08:23.040
  • YOU CAN GO THROUGHOUT
  • 00:08:23.040 --> 00:08:24.090
  • THE BIBLE AND CREATE ALL SORTS
  • 00:08:24.090 --> 00:08:25.170
  • OF WHACK THEOLOGY
  • 00:08:25.170 --> 00:08:27.040
  • IF YOU WANT TO, BUT IF YOU
  • 00:08:27.040 --> 00:08:28.190
  • TAKE THE BIBLE AT ITS ENTIRETY
  • 00:08:28.190 --> 00:08:30.030
  • AS A WHOLE NARRATIVE AND
  • 00:08:30.030 --> 00:08:31.280
  • YOU CHOOSE TO SUBMIT TO IT
  • 00:08:31.280 --> 00:08:33.090
  • THEN I CAN'T BE IN THE ROLE
  • 00:08:33.090 --> 00:08:34.210
  • OF MOVING GOD BECAUSE NOW
  • 00:08:34.210 --> 00:08:35.290
  • I'VE TAKEN ON THE ROLE
  • 00:08:35.290 --> 00:08:37.060
  • OF PLAYING GOD.
  • 00:08:37.060 --> 00:08:38.250
  • SO I FOUND IN MY SUBMISSION
  • 00:08:38.250 --> 00:08:41.030
  • TO THE LORD AND IN
  • 00:08:41.030 --> 00:08:42.090
  • THE DAY-TO-DAY, LIKE HONESTLY,
  • 00:08:42.090 --> 00:08:44.290
  • WHERE I WOULD GET UP
  • 00:08:44.290 --> 00:08:46.050
  • AND BE LIKE, "OKAY LORD.
  • 00:08:46.050 --> 00:08:47.080
  • HOW ARE WE GOING
  • 00:08:47.080 --> 00:08:48.100
  • TO GET THROUGH TODAY?"
  • 00:08:48.100 --> 00:08:49.230
  • BECAUSE I HAD TO BE
  • 00:08:49.230 --> 00:08:50.280
  • SO SURRENDERED TO HIM THAT
  • 00:08:50.280 --> 00:08:52.160
  • THAT MATTERED MORE TO ME
  • 00:08:52.160 --> 00:08:53.200
  • THAN WHAT I WAS GIVING UP.
  • 00:08:53.200 --> 00:08:55.080
  • NOW I'M ON THE OTHER SIDE
  • 00:08:55.080 --> 00:08:56.140
  • OF THIS TO WHERE THE LAST
  • 00:08:56.140 --> 00:08:57.260
  • TWO LINES OF THE BOOK ARE,
  • 00:08:57.260 --> 00:08:59.010
  • "JESUS IS BETTER.
  • 00:08:59.010 --> 00:09:00.070
  • JESUS IS BEST."
  • 00:09:00.070 --> 00:09:01.230
  • THAT'S THE HEART.
  • 00:09:01.230 --> 00:09:03.110
  • I KNOW WHAT PEOPLE WALK
  • 00:09:03.110 --> 00:09:04.240
  • THROUGH IN THE DAY IN
  • 00:09:04.240 --> 00:09:05.270
  • AND DAY OUT THAT THE CHURCH
  • 00:09:05.270 --> 00:09:07.030
  • MAY NOT BE COMFORTABLE
  • 00:09:07.030 --> 00:09:08.110
  • TALKING ABOUT BUT I KNOW
  • 00:09:08.110 --> 00:09:09.170
  • A GOD WHO IS REALLY
  • 00:09:09.170 --> 00:09:10.250
  • COMFORTABLE TALKING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:09:10.250 --> 00:09:12.020
  • AND I KNOW HE IS NOT BOTHERED
  • 00:09:12.020 --> 00:09:13.030
  • BY WHAT I'M DEALING WITH.
  • 00:09:13.030 --> 00:09:14.090
  • I KNOW THAT HE IS
  • 00:09:14.090 --> 00:09:15.120
  • NOT THREATENED BY IT.
  • 00:09:15.120 --> 00:09:16.210
  • James: HE DOESN'T LOVE YOU
  • 00:09:16.210 --> 00:09:17.230
  • YOU STRUGGLE WITH
  • 00:09:18.260 --> 00:09:19.260
  • OR EVEN DEFEATED BY
  • 00:09:19.260 --> 00:09:21.050
  • OR OFTENTIMES CONTROLLED BY,
  • 00:09:21.050 --> 00:09:22.240
  • WHEREIN YOU'RE TRYING
  • 00:09:22.240 --> 00:09:23.250
  • TO JUSTIFY IT, AND
  • 00:09:23.250 --> 00:09:24.280
  • TO CHANGE WHAT HE SAYS
  • 00:09:26.020 --> 00:09:27.020
  • INTO SOMETHING OTHER THAN
  • 00:09:27.020 --> 00:09:28.140
  • ACTUALLY THE TRUTH IN ORDER
  • 00:09:28.140 --> 00:09:29.190
  • TO JUSTIFY WHERE YOU WERE.
  • 00:09:29.190 --> 00:09:30.270
  • YOU FOUND OUT THAT REALLY
  • 00:09:30.270 --> 00:09:32.010
  • DIDN'T GIVE COMFORT, IT DIDN'T
  • 00:09:32.010 --> 00:09:33.140
  • REALLY MAKE SOMETHING TRUE
  • 00:09:33.140 --> 00:09:36.050
  • THAT WASN'T TRUE.
  • 00:09:36.050 --> 00:09:37.170
  • YOU KEPT REALIZING WHAT?
  • 00:09:37.170 --> 00:09:39.050
  • THAT YOU HAD TO MOVE
  • 00:09:39.050 --> 00:09:40.070
  • TOWARD TRUTH?
  • 00:09:40.070 --> 00:09:41.080
  • YOU COULDN'T MOVE TRUTH
  • 00:09:41.080 --> 00:09:42.100
  • YOUR WAY AND CAUSE IT
  • 00:09:42.100 --> 00:09:43.120
  • TO BE SOMETHING ELSE.
  • 00:09:43.120 --> 00:09:44.170
  • AND DID YOU FIND OUT
  • 00:09:44.170 --> 00:09:45.190
  • THAT YOU WEREN'T ACTUALLY
  • 00:09:45.190 --> 00:09:47.020
  • LOSING SOMETHING BUT YOU WERE
  • 00:09:47.020 --> 00:09:48.120
  • ACTUALLY DISCOVERING SOMETHING
  • 00:09:48.120 --> 00:09:50.080
  • THAT WAS SO MARVELOUS
  • 00:09:50.080 --> 00:09:51.200
  • YOU JUST WISHED PEOPLE
  • 00:09:51.200 --> 00:09:52.250
  • COULD SEE IT AND HEAR IT?
  • 00:09:52.250 --> 00:09:54.030
  • AND IT IS TOO OFTEN DISTRACTED
  • 00:09:54.030 --> 00:09:55.140
  • BY RELIGION BECAUSE
  • 00:09:55.140 --> 00:09:56.290
  • RELIGION IS SO MUCH
  • 00:09:56.290 --> 00:09:58.150
  • UNLIKE JESUS, THE AUTHOR
  • 00:09:58.150 --> 00:10:01.040
  • OF THE ONLY PERFECT FAITH
  • 00:10:01.040 --> 00:10:03.090
  • IN RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:10:03.090 --> 00:10:04.220
  • TOO MUCH RELIGION
  • 00:10:04.220 --> 00:10:06.060
  • IS UNLIKE JESUS; RIGHT?
  • 00:10:06.060 --> 00:10:08.030
  • Cavanaugh: CORRECT.
  • 00:10:08.030 --> 00:10:09.140
  • James: AND YOU REALLY EXPOSE
  • 00:10:09.140 --> 00:10:10.270
  • THAT WITHOUT BEING MEAN.
  • 00:10:10.270 --> 00:10:12.030
  • YOU'RE NOT MAD
  • 00:10:12.030 --> 00:10:13.080
  • AT CHURCH FOLKS.
  • 00:10:13.080 --> 00:10:14.170
  • Cavanaugh: NO. NOT AT ALL.
  • 00:10:14.170 --> 00:10:15.260
  • James: BUT YOU SHOW US WHERE
  • 00:10:15.260 --> 00:10:17.020
  • WE MISS IT AND YOU SHOW US
  • 00:10:17.020 --> 00:10:18.100
  • AMAZINGLY WELL.
  • 00:10:18.100 --> 00:10:20.120
  • WHEN YOU LOOK, MY GOODNESS,
  • 00:10:20.120 --> 00:10:22.040
  • THIS IS A WHOLE LOT BIGGER
  • 00:10:22.040 --> 00:10:23.190
  • THAN ME, WHAT I JUST WROTE.
  • 00:10:23.190 --> 00:10:25.020
  • THIS IS SOMETHING I CAN'T EVEN
  • 00:10:25.020 --> 00:10:26.130
  • BELIEVE I JUST WROTE DOWN
  • 00:10:26.130 --> 00:10:27.290
  • BECAUSE I KNOW IT'S TRUE.
  • 00:10:27.290 --> 00:10:30.110
  • A REAL SENSE OF CONVICTION
  • 00:10:31.210 --> 00:10:32.220
  • IN WRITING IT AND ALMOST A
  • 00:10:32.220 --> 00:10:35.220
  • -- I KNEW MY CONVERSATION
  • 00:10:35.220 --> 00:10:37.180
  • I'LL WRITE THIS IF
  • 00:10:38.210 --> 00:10:39.220
  • YOU PROMISE IT WON'T KILL ME.
  • 00:10:39.220 --> 00:10:41.110
  • BECAUSE I FELT LIKE
  • 00:10:41.110 --> 00:10:42.120
  • IT WAS GOING TO KILL ME.
  • 00:10:42.120 --> 00:10:45.060
  • THE TRUTH IS THAT JESUS
  • 00:10:45.060 --> 00:10:47.010
  • IS JUST REALLY, REALLY GOOD.
  • 00:10:47.100 --> 00:10:50.100
  • WHAT HE HAS DONE AND WHAT
  • 00:10:50.100 --> 00:10:51.160
  • I'M SEEING HIM DOING
  • 00:10:51.160 --> 00:10:52.250
  • IS JUST TAKING A SIMPLE ACT
  • 00:10:52.250 --> 00:10:54.070
  • OF WORSHIP, WHICH WAS
  • 00:10:54.070 --> 00:10:55.140
  • REALLY ALL THIS IS INTENDED
  • 00:10:55.140 --> 00:10:57.030
  • TO BE WAS MY ACT OF WORSHIP
  • 00:10:57.030 --> 00:10:58.130
  • TO THE LORD, TO OFFER UP
  • 00:10:58.130 --> 00:10:59.170
  • MY STORY BACK TO HIM,
  • 00:10:59.170 --> 00:11:01.120
  • TO OFFER UP EVERY KIND
  • 00:11:01.120 --> 00:11:03.290
  • OF HURTFUL MEMORY THAT I HAD
  • 00:11:03.290 --> 00:11:05.230
  • HAD IN MY LIFE AND TO ALLOW
  • 00:11:05.230 --> 00:11:07.060
  • THE LORD TO COME IN AND SAY,
  • 00:11:07.060 --> 00:11:08.090
  • "NO. NOW I'M GOING TO GIVE
  • 00:11:08.090 --> 00:11:09.120
  • THAT A NEW NAME.
  • 00:11:09.120 --> 00:11:10.160
  • I'M GOING TO CHANGE
  • 00:11:10.160 --> 00:11:11.180
  • WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE."
  • 00:11:11.180 --> 00:11:12.230
  • BECAUSE HE'S HEALED IT.
  • 00:11:12.230 --> 00:11:14.290
  • IT'S BECOME BIGGER THAN THAT
  • 00:11:14.290 --> 00:11:16.050
  • BECAUSE GOD IS ON IT.
  • 00:11:16.050 --> 00:11:17.220
  • IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ME.
  • 00:11:17.220 --> 00:11:18.250
  • I WOULD NEVER...
  • 00:11:18.250 --> 00:11:20.290
  • THAT'S JUST...
  • 00:11:20.290 --> 00:11:22.210
  • THE LORD WANTS TO GET
  • 00:11:22.210 --> 00:11:24.030
  • A HOLD OF PEOPLE'S HEARTS
  • 00:11:24.030 --> 00:11:25.200
  • AND HE WANTS TO BE RELATIONAL
  • 00:11:25.200 --> 00:11:27.020
  • AND HE WANTS TO BE OUR FRIEND
  • 00:11:27.020 --> 00:11:28.090
  • AND HE WANTS TO TALK TO US
  • 00:11:28.090 --> 00:11:29.150
  • AND HEAR US.
  • 00:11:29.150 --> 00:11:31.010
  • SO I'M HOPING THIS BOOK
  • 00:11:31.010 --> 00:11:32.100
  • IS AN EXTENSION OF HIS HEART
  • 00:11:32.100 --> 00:11:33.160
  • THAT WAY.
  • 00:11:33.160 --> 00:11:34.290
  • James: I WANT EVERYBODY
  • 00:11:34.290 --> 00:11:36.060
  • TO READ THE BOOK.
  • 00:11:36.060 --> 00:11:37.140
  • I DON'T SAY THAT ABOUT
  • 00:11:37.140 --> 00:11:38.190
  • EVERY AUTHOR I HAVE ON.
  • 00:11:38.190 --> 00:11:39.230
  • AND MY GOODNESS,
  • 00:11:39.230 --> 00:11:40.270
  • IT'S YOUR FIRST BOOK.
  • 00:11:40.270 --> 00:11:42.030
  • IT TOOK YOU TWO YEARS
  • 00:11:42.030 --> 00:11:43.080
  • TO WRITE IT.
  • 00:11:43.080 --> 00:11:44.140
  • YOU'RE KIND OF SLOW.
  • 00:11:44.140 --> 00:11:45.160
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:11:45.160 --> 00:11:46.210
  • Cavanaugh: YOU'VE GOT TO GO
  • 00:11:46.210 --> 00:11:47.250
  • THROUGH IT TO GET IT.
  • 00:11:47.250 --> 00:11:49.020
  • James: IT'S ABSOLUTELY
  • 00:11:49.020 --> 00:11:50.030
  • AMAZING.
  • 00:11:50.030 --> 00:11:51.060
  • IT WON'T TAKE YOU TWO YEARS
  • 00:11:51.060 --> 00:11:52.100
  • TO READ IT BECAUSE YOU CAN'T
  • 00:11:52.100 --> 00:11:53.140
  • HARDLY PUT IT DOWN.
  • 00:11:53.140 --> 00:11:54.170
  • OKAY, CAVANAUGH, WHAT
  • 00:11:54.170 --> 00:11:55.230
  • DO YOU WANT TO HAPPEN?
  • 00:11:55.230 --> 00:11:57.050
  • ONE OF THE MOST, I THINK,
  • 00:11:57.050 --> 00:11:58.150
  • POWERFUL THINGS YOU SAY
  • 00:11:58.150 --> 00:11:59.170
  • IS YOU WANT PEOPLE TO REALIZE
  • 00:11:59.170 --> 00:12:01.190
  • THAT REAL LOVE
  • 00:12:01.190 --> 00:12:03.040
  • DOESN'T HAVE AN AGENDA.
  • 00:12:03.040 --> 00:12:04.230
  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?
  • 00:12:04.230 --> 00:12:06.070
  • Cavanaugh: I MEAN THAT
  • 00:12:06.070 --> 00:12:07.210
  • SO OFTEN WE ROB OURSELVES
  • 00:12:07.210 --> 00:12:09.190
  • OF KNOWING TRUE INTIMACY
  • 00:12:09.190 --> 00:12:11.040
  • IN RELATIONSHIP BECAUSE
  • 00:12:11.040 --> 00:12:12.180
  • WE COME AT IT WITH
  • 00:12:12.180 --> 00:12:13.230
  • SOMETHING TO GAIN.
  • 00:12:13.230 --> 00:12:15.010
  • SO YOU KNOW, YOU FIND PEOPLE
  • 00:12:15.010 --> 00:12:16.120
  • THAT YOU WANT IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:12:16.120 --> 00:12:17.160
  • WHETHER THEY'RE ENTERTAINING
  • 00:12:17.160 --> 00:12:19.020
  • OR FUNNY OR INFLUENTIAL
  • 00:12:19.020 --> 00:12:20.230
  • OR TALENTED OR WHATEVER
  • 00:12:20.230 --> 00:12:22.240
  • KIND OF ATTRACTIVE QUALITY
  • 00:12:22.240 --> 00:12:24.150
  • YOU CAN PUT ON THEM,
  • 00:12:24.150 --> 00:12:25.250
  • AND YOU REALIZE THAT
  • 00:12:25.250 --> 00:12:26.280
  • YOUR MOTIVATION FOR ENTERING
  • 00:12:26.280 --> 00:12:28.060
  • INTO THAT RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:12:28.060 --> 00:12:29.090
  • AND EVERYTHING YOU SAY
  • 00:12:29.090 --> 00:12:30.110
  • IS ALMOST FILTERED THROUGH
  • 00:12:30.110 --> 00:12:31.200
  • AN AGENDA.
  • 00:12:31.200 --> 00:12:32.220
  • IT MIGHT BE A SLIGHT ONE
  • 00:12:32.220 --> 00:12:33.270
  • BUT IT'S STILL AN AGENDA.
  • 00:12:33.270 --> 00:12:35.080
  • WHAT I FIND IS THAT WHEN
  • 00:12:35.080 --> 00:12:36.110
  • JESUS COMES TO US AND
  • 00:12:36.110 --> 00:12:37.210
  • WHEN HE PURSUES RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:12:37.210 --> 00:12:39.180
  • WITH US, ALTHOUGH IT IS FOR
  • 00:12:39.180 --> 00:12:41.110
  • THE INTENT OF WINNING
  • 00:12:41.110 --> 00:12:42.180
  • OUR HEARTS, HIS LOVE
  • 00:12:42.180 --> 00:12:43.280
  • IS NEVER CONDITIONAL-BASED
  • 00:12:43.280 --> 00:12:45.050
  • HE'S NEVER LOVING US FOR
  • 00:12:46.230 --> 00:12:49.000
  • THE SAKE OF MANIPULATING US
  • 00:12:49.000 --> 00:12:50.130
  • INTO A RESPONSE.
  • 00:12:50.130 --> 00:12:51.280
  • IT'S NO DIFFERENT THAN
  • 00:12:51.280 --> 00:12:53.010
  • YOU REALLY, REALLY ENJOY THEM
  • 00:12:54.090 --> 00:12:55.130
  • AND YOU JUST WANT TO PICK UP
  • 00:12:55.130 --> 00:12:56.150
  • THE PHONE AND CALL AND ASK
  • 00:12:56.150 --> 00:12:57.170
  • TO GO TO COFFEE NEXT WEEK.
  • 00:12:57.170 --> 00:12:59.040
  • THAT'S WHAT I FOUND
  • 00:12:59.040 --> 00:13:00.060
  • WITH JESUS.
  • 00:13:00.060 --> 00:13:01.160
  • I KNOW THAT THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:13:01.160 --> 00:13:02.200
  • HE'S CALLED ME TO LIVE OUT
  • 00:13:02.200 --> 00:13:03.240
  • RELATIONALLY WITH OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:13:03.240 --> 00:13:05.020
  • AND WHAT I THINK THE CHURCH
  • 00:13:05.020 --> 00:13:06.090
  • AT LARGE IS CALLED IN
  • 00:13:06.090 --> 00:13:07.260
  • THIS SEASON TO LIVE,
  • 00:13:07.260 --> 00:13:09.110
  • WHICH IS TO LIVE
  • 00:13:09.110 --> 00:13:10.190
  • AN AGENDA-LESS LOVE AND
  • 00:13:10.190 --> 00:13:12.180
  • TO WALK RELATIONALLY
  • 00:13:12.180 --> 00:13:14.060
  • James: BOY, WHEN YOU CAN LIVE
  • 00:13:16.040 --> 00:13:17.130
  • OUTSIDE YOURSELF.
  • 00:13:17.130 --> 00:13:19.040
  • WE HAVE, LEGITIMATELY FROM
  • 00:13:19.040 --> 00:13:20.270
  • THE LORD'S POINT OF VIEW,
  • 00:13:20.270 --> 00:13:22.030
  • TO LOVE OUR NEIGHBOR
  • 00:13:23.070 --> 00:13:24.080
  • AS OURSELVES IF IT IS IMPROPER
  • 00:13:24.080 --> 00:13:25.100
  • TO LOVE YOURSELF,
  • 00:13:25.100 --> 00:13:26.120
  • IF THERE IS NOT A PROPER WAY
  • 00:13:26.120 --> 00:13:27.200
  • TO LOVE YOURSELF, TO REALLY
  • 00:13:27.200 --> 00:13:28.280
  • LOOK AT WHAT IS REALLY
  • 00:13:28.280 --> 00:13:30.050
  • ACTUALLY BEST, WE SHOULD CARE
  • 00:13:30.050 --> 00:13:31.130
  • AND WE SHOULD ACTUALLY
  • 00:13:31.130 --> 00:13:32.160
  • WANT THAT FOR OTHERS.
  • 00:13:32.160 --> 00:13:34.000
  • THAT RELATIONSHIP IS WHAT
  • 00:13:34.000 --> 00:13:35.250
  • YOU SEE COMING FROM JESUS.
  • 00:13:35.250 --> 00:13:37.230
  • THAT RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:13:39.070 --> 00:13:40.080
  • CHANGED YOU.
  • 00:13:40.080 --> 00:13:41.100
  • ALL THE STRUGGLES,
  • 00:13:41.100 --> 00:13:42.140
  • ALL THE IDENTITY CRISIS,
  • 00:13:42.140 --> 00:13:43.190
  • ALL THE CONFUSION,
  • 00:13:43.190 --> 00:13:45.050
  • OR WHATEVER CONFUSION,
  • 00:13:46.240 --> 00:13:48.000
  • WONDERING, YOU FOUND PEACE
  • 00:13:48.010 --> 00:13:51.010
  • IN A SETTLENESS IN THAT
  • 00:13:51.010 --> 00:13:52.160
  • WITHOUT BECOMING VINDICTIVE
  • 00:13:52.160 --> 00:13:54.000
  • AND UNKIND AND CRITICAL.
  • 00:13:54.000 --> 00:13:56.090
  • YOU REALIZE THAT IT WAS
  • 00:13:56.090 --> 00:13:57.140
  • THE POWER OF HIS PRESENCE,
  • 00:13:57.140 --> 00:13:59.120
  • AS WELL AS THE POWER
  • 00:13:59.120 --> 00:14:00.170
  • OF HIS TRANSFORMING TRUTH
  • 00:14:00.170 --> 00:14:02.050
  • THAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:14:02.050 --> 00:14:03.090
  • IT WASN'T SOME RELIGIOUS CLUB
  • 00:14:03.090 --> 00:14:05.050
  • OR SOME STANDARD OF MAN
  • 00:14:05.050 --> 00:14:06.200
  • AND THE DEMANDS OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:14:06.200 --> 00:14:08.070
  • ANYONE COMING UP NEXT TO ME
  • 00:14:09.140 --> 00:14:10.180
  • AND SAYING, "HEY GET THIS
  • 00:14:10.180 --> 00:14:11.270
  • IN ORDER IN YOUR LIFE."
  • 00:14:11.270 --> 00:14:13.040
  • James: THAT WOULDN'T MOVE YOU;
  • 00:14:15.080 --> 00:14:16.080
  • DID IT?
  • 00:14:16.080 --> 00:14:17.100
  • IT ALMOST CAUSED YOU
  • 00:14:17.100 --> 00:14:18.100
  • TO BRACE UP AND PUSH BACK.
  • 00:14:18.100 --> 00:14:19.170
  • Cavanaugh: NO.
  • 00:14:19.170 --> 00:14:20.190
  • WHICH IS I DON'T THINK
  • 00:14:20.190 --> 00:14:21.180
  • I DON'T MEAN TO SPEAK FOR
  • 00:14:21.180 --> 00:14:22.200
  • MY WHOLE GENERATION BUT I DO
  • 00:14:22.200 --> 00:14:23.200
  • THINK MILLENNIALS AT LARGE
  • 00:14:23.200 --> 00:14:24.230
  • ALMOST FEEL A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:14:24.230 --> 00:14:25.260
  • AS IF THE CHURCH HAS BEEN
  • 00:14:25.260 --> 00:14:26.290
  • WANTING US TO CORRECT THINGS
  • 00:14:26.290 --> 00:14:28.100
  • WITHOUT DEALING WITH
  • 00:14:28.100 --> 00:14:29.120
  • THE HEART FIRST.
  • 00:14:29.120 --> 00:14:30.280
  • SO THERE IS A LEVEL OF BEING
  • 00:14:30.280 --> 00:14:33.070
  • ABLE TO TALK AND HAVE
  • 00:14:33.070 --> 00:14:35.080
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH SOMEONE
  • 00:14:35.080 --> 00:14:36.130
  • BEFORE YOU'RE ABLE TO MOVE
  • 00:14:36.130 --> 00:14:37.130
  • FORWARD AND TO GROW
  • 00:14:37.130 --> 00:14:38.170
  • AND CHALLENGE AND SHARPEN;
  • 00:14:38.170 --> 00:14:39.270
  • AND ALL THOSE THINGS
  • 00:14:39.270 --> 00:14:41.000
  • WE'RE SUPPOSED TO DO
  • 00:14:41.000 --> 00:14:42.020
  • IN COMMUNITY.
  • 00:14:42.020 --> 00:14:43.070
  • James: I'M A 75-YEAR OLD.
  • 00:14:43.070 --> 00:14:44.080
  • HAVE I FIT JUST OUTSIDE
  • 00:14:44.080 --> 00:14:45.080
  • THE MILLENNIAL BRACKET?
  • 00:14:45.080 --> 00:14:46.160
  • Cavanaugh: JUST ON
  • 00:14:46.160 --> 00:14:47.180
  • THE TAIL END.
  • 00:14:47.180 --> 00:14:48.210
  • James: HERE'S WHAT I NEED
  • 00:14:48.210 --> 00:14:49.200
  • TO KNOW.
  • 00:14:49.200 --> 00:14:50.230
  • DO YOU THINK, YOU'VE KNOWN ME
  • 00:14:50.230 --> 00:14:51.230
  • A LONG TIME, PRETTY MUCH
  • 00:14:51.230 --> 00:14:52.280
  • YOUR WHOLE LIFE; RIGHT?
  • 00:14:52.280 --> 00:14:54.240
  • DO YOU THINK I HAVE ANYTHING
  • 00:14:54.240 --> 00:14:55.250
  • TO OFFER MILLENNIALS?
  • 00:14:55.250 --> 00:14:57.080
  • Cavanaugh: I KNOW YOU DO.
  • 00:14:57.080 --> 00:14:58.140
  • James: DO YOU THINK
  • 00:14:58.140 --> 00:14:59.160
  • THEY WOULD ACTUALLY LISTEN
  • 00:14:59.160 --> 00:15:00.200
  • IF WE SAT DOWN AND TALKED?
  • 00:15:00.200 --> 00:15:01.250
  • Cavanaugh: I ACTUALLY DO.
  • 00:15:01.250 --> 00:15:03.090
  • James: DO YOU THINK I WOULD
  • 00:15:03.090 --> 00:15:04.100
  • SHOW THEM RESPECT
  • 00:15:04.100 --> 00:15:05.120
  • AND AN ATTEMPT TO REALLY
  • 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:06.140
  • UNDERSTAND AND PERHAPS EVEN
  • 00:15:06.140 --> 00:15:07.160
  • LEARN FROM THEM?
  • 00:15:07.160 --> 00:15:08.220
  • Cavanaugh: THAT IS A HUGE KEY.
  • 00:15:08.220 --> 00:15:10.010
  • AND YES.
  • 00:15:10.010 --> 00:15:11.050
  • IF YOU WERE TO SIT DOWN
  • 00:15:11.050 --> 00:15:12.120
  • WITH ANYONE AND SAY,
  • 00:15:12.120 --> 00:15:13.190
  • "HEY, I WANT TO KNOW WHAT
  • 00:15:13.190 --> 00:15:14.190
  • YOU THINK ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:15:14.190 --> 00:15:15.240
  • LET ME GET YOUR PERSPECTIVE
  • 00:15:15.240 --> 00:15:16.260
  • ON THIS."
  • 00:15:16.260 --> 00:15:18.000
  • WHEN YOU ASK FOR SOMEONE'S
  • 00:15:18.000 --> 00:15:19.020
  • PERSPECTIVE IT IS NOT
  • 00:15:19.020 --> 00:15:20.040
  • A THREATENING QUESTION
  • 00:15:20.040 --> 00:15:21.060
  • AND IT IS INVITING THEM
  • 00:15:21.060 --> 00:15:22.070
  • TO SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCE
  • 00:15:22.070 --> 00:15:23.140
  • AND TO ACTUALLY IMPART

  • WHAT THEY'VE GROWN UP WITH.
  • 00:15:24.160 --> 00:15:25.240
  • SO I THINK THAT OUR GENERATION

  • WANTS TO BE INVITED
  • 00:15:27.220 --> 00:15:28.260

  • BY YOU FOR ME IS JUST HUGE!
  • 00:15:32.060 --> 00:15:34.140

  • 00:15:38.000 --> 00:15:39.050

  • James: I DON'T WANT
  • 00:15:41.200 --> 00:15:42.250

  • Cavanaugh: WELL, AND I KNOW
