The Divine Feminine and Jesus’s Secret Revelations to His Brother

Jann Aldredge-Clanton didn’t start out as a reformer. When she was a pre-teen, she almost starved herself to death trying to fit into the culture’s feminine mold. In high school she felt inadequate because she never won a beauty crown, even though she graduated at the top of her class. Slowly, she began waking up to her own voice, and became one of the first women ever to be ordained as a Baptist minister in the South. She is the author of several books including hymnbooks in which she writes hymns in honor of the divine feminine. Her books include: Intercultural Ministry: Hope for a Changing World, Earth Transformed with Music! Inclusive Songs for Worship, Inclusive Hymns for Liberating Christians, and Inclusive Hymns for Liberation, Peace, and Justice.

Brent Landau of the University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Landau and his colleague, Geoffrey Smith have made a discovery of an ancient apocryphal text in which Jesus shares secret revelations to his brother James.  Dr. Landau speaks to me about the significance of this discovery. Brent Landau is a lecturer in the Department of Religious Studies. He received his Th.D and M.Div from Harvard University and his chief research is on ancient Christian apocryphal writings.

Permanent Warrantless Spying Before Congress

Les Jamieson was live with John Shuck on Friday morning December 8th on KBOO’s The Beloved Community to discuss Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that is set to expire on Dec. 31st, 2017. This is the language which allows for warrantless spying on all Americans by the NSA. According to Mr. Jamieson, a vote could be taken before recess on December 15th on bills to extend Section 702 and make warrantless spying legal and permanent. Oregon Senator Ron Wyden has proposed legislation to reform 702 and add safeguards to protect civil liberties. Wyden’s Bill is called The USA Rights Act.

In this episode Les Jamieson discussed NSA, Edward Snowden, spying, whistleblower William Binney (who is featured in Oliver Stone’s “A Good American”), and the software he created, “Thin Thread” would have done the work of foreign surveillance while protecting the privacy of Americans. It was discontinued three weeks before 9/11.
