This year, we’ve heard a lot about the bullying of gays and lesbians in schools all over the country. What we don’t hear so much about is the bullying of members of the GLBT population in churches and in Christian communities all across the nation. In fact, both overt and covert bullying is most often done by people who want to exclude members of the GLBT population based on the erroneous notion that God hates them, or wishes them punished or excluded. Well, today, we are going to be talking to United Church of Christ minister, Candace Chellew-Hodge, author of “Bulletproof Faith: A Spiritual Survival Guide for Gay and Lesbian Christians.” While far too many still think that the words “Christian” and “Gay” and “Lesbian” are oxymorons, Chellew-Hodge will tell GLBT Christians how to reclaim the authentic self and survive the onslaught of abuse coming from their own communities. If you fall on either side of this issue, you are not going want to miss this show.

Demetra George, our guest for today was one of the first Astrologers to publish an astrology book that included the asteroids into the configuration of the natal chart. Demetra always loved the great myths of the Greek gods and goddess, told to her by her Greek grandparents as bedtime stories. As she started using the asteroids in people’s charts, she would tell them the myths of a particular asteroid significant in their charts and hear, “You just told me the story of my life!” Her book, “Asteroid Goddesses” offered a significant change in thinking with regard to astrology, moving the feminine into the forefront of any reading. Her latest book, just out in November, and our topic of discussion today, is “Astrology and the Authentic Self.” If you are even mildly interested in astrology, Demetra George’s work can help you learn to use it as a tool to find your own authenticity.

Often the journey to the Authentic Self is a bit like losing your place. An identity to which you have held for years, even decades is diminishing. You can no longer say you are that old notion of yourself, but you can’t really say who it is that you are now. Worse than that, for some this amounts to a serious depression that may even include suicidal despair. For others it seems that life is meaningless, God cannot be accessed and the everyday experience of life is without hope. What is the purpose of this period in our lives or is there a purpose to it? Well it turns out that, indeed, there is a purpose to it, and not only that, but there is a way through it that brings you to the other side of the desert land a deeply evolved person. Are you experiencing a painful twist in your journey? Tune in and find out how you can make this into a time of enlightenment and, yes, even find joy in the midst of it.
