Podcast about Racism with Benjamin Lee – Part 2

This will be the last post for the Men’s Daily Briefing. Thanks again for all your support and encouragement!

Please check out my new website, ShepherdingTalk.Com

Make sure to listen to our podcasts with Benjamin Lee on Racism, part 1 and 2.

Racism and prejudice are real and they still exist. We discuss how we as Christians and leaders can help move forward toward healing.

Benjamin’s books, coaching resources, and podcasts can all be found on benjaminlee.blog.

Check out Benjamin Lee’s “Nehemiah Effect” section of his website that has a great collection of videos, audio and articles on racism. Here is a short description of the “Nehemiah Effect” work that Benjamin is doing:

“After the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis I decided to create the Nehemiah Effect. I had a lot of people asking me, “What can I do.” “What should I say?” The idea behind the Nehemiah Effect comes from the story of Nehemiah in the Old Testament. Nehemiah was a man of action. He saw a problem and took action. His faith was in God. Like Nehemiah, we all can do something to help others. We can do something for good. My newsletter and information on my website provides different ideas we can do to do good to others. I also provide articles dealing with racism, along with book recommendations for people who are looking to learn more about racism.”

Shepherding Talk: My New Website and Podcast

You all have been such a blessing and encouragement to me since Men’s Daily Briefing began in 2016. It began as a focused way to encourage men, but evolved into daily encouragement to a general audience. The feedback and support has been awesome! There have been times life dealt me a blow or two and others willingly carried the ball for awhile (Shane Blackmer, Andy Harrison etc.). I’m so blessed to have such great friends!

During the past few months, I’ve been working on a new website called Shepherding Talk. This website, blog and podcast are all devoted to teaching leadership through the Biblical lens of a shepherd with his sheep. The Bible is full of this imagery and that is how God relates to us, as a Shepherd with His sheep (Psalm 23, John 10).

At this point there are 40 plus articles on the website. Many articles from Men’s Daily Briefing will eventually be migrated over there.

Shepherding Talk

The Shepherding Talk Podcast will be a weekly interview with various leaders sharing their perspectives on Biblical leadership. Right now, there are 7 podcast interviews on the website. I’ve interviewed church leaders like Max Dawson, Roger Shouse and Benjamin Lee about various aspects of leadership. More interviews are coming, Lord willing!

The Shepherding Talk Podcast is available on platforms like Apple, Spotify, IHeartRadio, etc.

We will spend a lot of time on church leadership, but we will also talk about other ways we are shepherd leaders: in our families, marriages and communities. Everyone is a leader, and everyone can have a shepherd’s heart.

We will talk about the attitudes of leadership. For example, see Episode 7 where Benjamin Lee shares his passion for a positive “I Can Do” attitude.

We also will deal with current events like Racism. The next podcast to post tonight is Part 1 of a conversation about racism with Benjamin Lee.

Please subscribe to our weekly newsletter! Instead of a daily newsletter, we will post an article and podcast every week.

If you like it, please recommend it to your friends!

Men’s Daily Briefing. I’ve chosen not to continue the Men’s Daily Briefing website for practical reasons. I don’t want to focus on two websites at once! Again, thanks so much for the great encouragement!

My personal goal is to take the articles from both websites and turn them into books soon. Please pray for me in this effort. Thank you!

A special thanks to Benjamin Lee for being such a spark of energy and encouragement to get the Shepherding Talk website going. Also thanks to Roger Shouse and Max Dawson and Jason Hardin for helping me get the podcast off to a great start!

You Can Make a Difference!

Thanks Benjamin for this great article! Everyone, please click on the link to Benjamin’s podcast. This interview with the founders of Sacred Selections is a must hear. If you are interested in promoting life and helping families fund adoptions, you should prayerfully consider supporting Sacred Selections! — Aaron

You Can Make A Difference

Last year, I had the opportunity to go to a fundraiser dinner for Sacred Selections in Dallas Texas. I had heard a great deal about this non-profit group, but I was blown away by the great things Sacred Selections has done and is currently doing in America and around the world.

I had the opportunity to meet the founders, David and Dana Carrozza. I was quickly drawn to their passion for helping children. Below is their mission statement from their website.

Sacred Selections mission is to financially assist Christian couples whose hearts and homes are open to loving and raising a child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. The dream of parenting does not have to be constrained by limited financial resources. The foundation, its board and many generous donors are committed to using the blessings we’ve received to assist in the wonderful effort in creating a Christian home and family.

 I have seen first-hand the impact of what they have done. One of our families at the congregation where I preach recently adopted through Sacred Selections. Another close friend of my family adopted a baby a couple of years ago! I’ve seen how lives have been changed for the better. It’s such a blessing.

I’ve also seen the power of one person! Everyone can make a difference in the life of someone else. People often want to know what they can do individually to help others in their community and the world. Supporting Sacred Selections is one way you can impact many people. Every penny, nickel, dime, quarter, and dollar counts. Every prayer for the work that’s taking place through David and Dana matters! You can help a child in need. You can help a family in need.

Recently, I had David and Dana on my Podcast. My Podcast is called, “I CAN DO with Benjamin Lee.” I’ve begun interviewing people who have an I CAN DO spirit. David and Dana certainly fall into that category. I would love for you to listen to it as they share their story. Their story is powerful and it will certainly encourage and motivate you to support the great work they are doing. Please pray for the children in need. Please pray for the couples who are willing to open up their hearts and home. Let’s strive to DO GOOD.

Let’s remember the words of Jesus.

“It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:35

Let’s remember the words of the apostle Paul.

“So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Galatians 6:10
