Overwhelmed by the news cycle and the state of affairs in our world? A pastor, blogger, and powerful voice in the Resistance, John Pavlovitz has the answer and the antidote: Hope and Other Superpowers - inspirational, practical, and motivational lessons to cultivate our inner superheroes and save the world.Pastor John Pavlovitz has become a voice and a beacon of hope for progressives around the world. His popular and beloved blog, Stuff That Needs to Be Said, offers almost daily inspiration and insight into the state of affairs in the world and expertly captures the emotional zeitgeist; the angst, rage, fear, and despair that are the “new normal” for so many people. In the face of the hand-wringing helplessness we often feel, John offers the antidote: a practical and inspirational guide to transforming your burdens into dreams and your outrage into activism in order to become the kind of people the world needs right now.Using the fun and relatable framework of superhero mythology, John calls on us to create our origin stories that spur us to action and explains how we can build our protective suits of armor, identify and curb our personal kryptonite, and vanquish villains. He also helps us cultivate the specific “superpowers” we can enlist to make our lives and our world better. Along the way, he offers inspiring and stirring anecdotes and profiles about ordinary people who have done extraordinary things to help humankind.These times call for us to become superheroes in our own right, with the fearlessness, determination, and commitment to fight the battle against lies, oppression, and bigotry. As in the pages of a comic book, the bad guys are relentless, and so we have to be equally steadfast in our goodness. Here, Pastor John sounds the urgent call to action to empower and implore listeners to find agency and a sense of meaning and purpose. For people who want to believe in a better world and our capacity 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Pavlovitz. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/sans/008982/bk_sans_008982_sample.mp3.

In this hour, when President Obama took office, the Democratic Party was riding high, and the Republican Party, some thought, was on its way out. No one paid much attention to the Tea Party. Times have changed. Keli Carender is a Seattle area blogger considered by many to be the very first Tea Party activist. She tells Steve Paulson what the first protests were like. One of the early signs of change in the political atmosphere came with "the rant heard round the world" from Rick Santelli. He called up the ghosts of the Founding Fathers in his outrage at contemporary American Government.Next, Jill Lepore teaches American history at Harvard and writes for The New Yorker. In her new book, The Whites of Their Eyes: The Tea Party's Revolution and the Battle Over American History, Lepore does a reality check on Tea Party claims to the founding fathers. She tells Anne Strainchamps about the moment they entered the Tea Party picture.Then, these days it doesn't matter whether you are a conservative or a liberal, if you are looking for inspiration you look to Ronald Reagan. You don't have to like his politics, or even know much about them, to be aware that he's remembered as "the great communicator." Julian Zelizer is a presidential historian and professor of history and public affairs at Princeton. He tells Jim Fleming why Reagan's still so relevant today.And finally, is the war of ideas between red and blue America something new? Columnist David Sirota says no, the war was won in the 1980. By the conservatives. In his book Back to Our Future Sirota says the proof is in the staying power of 80s pop culture. As an example, he tells Steve Paulson about the hit sitcom Family Ties.
