Description

The old structures of our global society are not serving us well.

We need to creatively destroy the ships that brought us here
and move in to the new land of the future with better tools.

Tools that keep us safer and healthier
that create more wealth for more people
that foster more intimate and rewarding relationships.

We need to leave behind what is not working.

We need a Modern Revolution.

The Modern Revolutionary: Katy Steinberg
It is obvious from the nationwide decline in church attendance and the great increase in “nones”  (people claiming “none” as their religious affiliation) that the traditional spiritual offerings are no longer meeting the needs of the people. That said, there is a general increase in a sense of awe and wonder. So how will we continue to facilitate our spiritual wellness if not in churches? And what even does spiritual wellness look like?  Like every other kind of fitness, our spiritual fitness is not purely of a spiritual nature, but overlaps with our mental, physical and lifestyle as well. This insight is the impetus for Katy Steinberg’s vision for Missing Peace, a movement addressing the physical, cerebral, spiritual, and serving components of spiritual fitness.  Despite moving nearly 26 times, Katy Steinberg names Winter Park, FL as the place she is “from.” That said, she and her family comprised of husband Jeff, and their two children have been in Daytona Beach area for 10 years or “my whole life” as the kids would say. At 36 years old, Katy has completed a bachelors in Business with minors in Mass Communications and Economics from the University of Florida, and a Masters in Divinity from Columbia and University of Dubuque seminaries.  Amongst Katy's social contacts, it became clear 2.5 years ago, that there were inadequate venues for spiritual exploration and wellness for people who didn’t feel like they fit or didn’t feel welcome in churches. From this consensus, an idea was born for Missing Peace   A place where doubter and disciple could both gather for spiritual practices, physical activities, cerebral discussions, and serving opportunities.  To do this, they began meeting in August of 2015 as a nomadic community of sorts that would gather weekly and travel the area seeking these different experiences in order to connect with each other and the divine in meaningful ways. Over 400 people have come to check out this unique expression of life and faith in community, serving nearly 1000 hours and giving over $25,000.  Looking for ways to participate in your spiritual wellness? Follow Missing Peace on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, eNewsletter, or simply make time for a few deep breaths and listen closely to your own spirit whispering to you exactly what it needs.     Katy Steinberg Founder MISSING PEACE ormondsmissingpeace.com Text Alerts: text PEACE to 33222 Facebook YouTube Instagram Twitter eNewsletter

The Modern Revolutionary: Deborah Frieze
Deborah Frieze is an author, entrepreneur and social activist. In 2013, she founded the Boston Impact Initiative, an impact investing fund focused on economic justice, which means investing in opportunity for all people—especially those most oppressed or abandoned by our current economic system—to lead a dignified and productive life. The fund takes an integrated capital approach, combining investing, lending and grantmaking to build a resilient and inclusive local economy. Deborah’s focus on resilience began during her tenure as co-president of The Berkana Institute, where she worked to support pioneering leaders who were walking out of organizations and systems that were failing to contribute to the common good—and walking on to build resilient communities. These leaders are the subject of her award-winning book, Walk Out Walk On: A Learning Journey into Communities Daring to Live the Future Now, co-authored with Margaret Wheatley. After writing Walk Out Walk On, Deborah decided to build an urban learning center modeled after the pioneering leaders she wrote about. In August 2013, she founded the Old Oak Dojo in Jamaica Plain, MA, an event center dedicated to racial justice and a place where neighbors gather to rediscover how to create healthy and resilient communities. **** The Modern Revolution is a production of A Well Run Life.

So yeah I don’t see how “revolutionary” a show can be when its only guests are entrepreneurs. Consider a less misleading logo if that’s where your politics lie because I was expecting something different with a harder left lean from that

I already left, I live out where real Americans live now. You should take your own advice and leave the country if you hate it so much.

It is very simple, we have an established system that has worked perfectly for over 240 years now. If you want to live under a different type of government, feel free to move to a country like North Korea and see how great your life will be! It cracks me up how the left is always trying to compare America to Nazi Germany and all of that bullshit. The only reason they make those comparisons is because they have it so well here and have ZERO idea what it is like living under a dictator! I also dind it extremely ironic how the left is always talking about evil fascists and how horrible they are because they killed 6 million people.....yet the left claims socialism and communism would be so much better, nevermind the fact that communism was responsible for over 90 million deaths! Stalin killed over 20 million alone, yet liberals run around with Che shirts flying communist flags! So they are comparing the right to fascists and saying how evil they were in Germany for killing 6 million people while they support socialism and communism which is responsible for around 100 million.....typical liberal hypocrisy.

Sounds like a crock of liberal, communist or anarchist bullshit to me! Look, America is just fine the way it is! There is a real big world out there with tons of options as far as ruling governments go. Find a country that is run the way you want it and move there! America already had our revolution, and we are the greatest nation in the history of man because of that revolution! Your comments in the description of this podcast has tones of communism in it with your talk of class struggle and wealth redistribution. We do not want that shit here! I spent 8 years of my life serving my great country during trhe Cold War in the late 80s and early 90s. I have seen first hand how countries under communist rule REALLY are! Show me one example of a communist country flourishing! Go ahead and try....just one example! It has never happened and never will! Karl Marx's writings work just fine in books, but not so much in real life. Those countries always find themselves under a dictators iron fist.... every single time. People are always talking about how evil National Socialism is because 6 million Jews lost their lives, well how about Communism with over 90 million lost lives? Stalin was responsible for over 20 million alone! Strange how that is never spoken of huh? The left keeps everyone busy hunting white "fascists" so nobody looks into them. We used to have it right and we hated reds! Now, thanks to the left's lies and the political shell game they are playing, we have forgotten how evil the reds really are! I live in Portland, OR....commie central. These idiots are blocking roads, shutting businesses down and anything else they can do in their so called protests. One of these days I am going to be the first car in one of their road blockades and I will not be stopping!

Rick Arden So to recap our system is perfect and totally non-fascistic and yet when you and your friends see protestors practicing that sanctified “first amendment” shit the first thought through your head is murderous rage. Yeah sounds like a great political project you have, sign me up. I don’t care if you’re old or young. You’re the fucking past, douchebag, and the power attached to your beliefs will be swept away like the garbage it is. And unlike you, we don’t need to see blood. We just want a better world.
