Faith Adjacent: Thanksgiving
Play • 43 min

Pull up a chair and settle into a tryptophan fever-dream as we feast on the faith adjacency of the Thanksgiving meal. We’re covering a cornucopia of topics from the creation of our national holiday and the origins of green bean casserole to the real story behind the first Thanksgiving. The truth might be messier and more complicated than our narrative of fellowship and unity, but together let's create a fuller, more inclusive table where all are welcome.

Happy Feast of the Epiphany: A Star In The Sky
Happy Feast of the Epiphany! Our reading today is Matthew 2:1-12. I wonder why the Wise Men wanted to travel to find the king of the Jews? I wonder what they said to their friends and family when they left home? And I wonder what they hoped to find? I wonder why the Wise Men were full of joy when they came to the house where Jesus and his family were staying? I wonder what they saw, and what they heard, that showed them this was the king they were looking for? I wonder how Mary felt when these strange visitors came inside to worship her son? I wonder what she thought as they unpacked their treasures and gave them to her child? The word “epiphany” means “to reveal” or “to bring forth.” An epiphany is when something that was hidden comes out for everyone to see. I wonder why Jesus’s birth was hidden and unnoticed by the people in Jerusalem? I wonder why the Wise Men, from another country and far away, were the ones who saw his star, and who found him so they could worship? I wonder if today, still, Jesus can feel hidden or hard to see? I wonder if he is sometimes in people or places I don’t expect? What do I want to say to God about that? Can I ask God right now to give me a searching heart, like the Wise Men, ready to see Jesus's glory and rejoice in his presence wherever it is revealed, even in people and places where I don’t expect to find him? O God, you hung a star in the sky. By that star, you revealed your only Son to people who were far off, and led them to his mother’s house so they could worship him. Lead us now into your presence throughout this season, and open our eyes to encounter your glory in all the places where it is hidden among us. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.  We Wonder is written and hosted by me, Sarah Dahl; produced by Richard Clark; and engineered by Nick Thompson and Noah Kirby.

Chris Cook on Finding Your True Self After Trauma (Enneagram 1) [S04-030]
I’m often asked how trauma affects your Enneagram type. The answer is: it’s complicated. Trauma is the result of an extraordinarily stressful event that shatters your sense of security and safety and makes you feel isolated and helpless in the world. It can be a one-time event or ongoing, complex trauma. Your response to trauma largely determines the type toward which you gravitate as a little child as a way of coping in the world. In today’s episode, Chris Cook opens up about his childhood trauma and how healing his broken spirit exposed his true self. We also dig into unconscious motivations, subtypes, and the inner critic. You don’t want to miss this in-depth conversation. Christopher Cook believes people should be able to live successful, meaningful lives, far above the status quo of “just getting by.” Put simply, he believes people should be able to win today. He exercises this belief as a leadership coach and business consultant to both Fortune 1000 and non-profit organizations. Additionally, he is the host of “Win Today with Christopher Cook,” a weekly podcast available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, iHeart Radio, and most other outlets. Through his work at and as a featured writer for SUCCESS Magazine, he serves as a guide to wellness-minded men and women who are eager to confidently design their roadmap to wholeness and show up each day fully-alive in their true identity.
