About three months ago three of us: Paul Mamigonion, Tom Clarke and I met in the Shakespeare pub near Market Street Manchester to listen to Paul’s vision of wanting to start an on line radio station called “critical mass radio station on line”.
Tom and I were excited about the idea and the three of us decided to go ahead and get things started with Paul being the drive force of getting things moving and getting moving he did.
Within a few months the show was up and running and you can see the outcome on http://www.criticalmassradio.co.uk/
The station went on air on Monday 28 May, just a few months of our meeting in the Shakespeare. It just shows you what can be done when two or three gather together and work in unity?
For m part I named my show “changing consciousness” suggesting that nothing in life is permanent; I have tried since I retired in 2002 to get the established Church interested in listening to what people on the streets were saying about their lack of interest in Dogma; considering all the information on all aspects of life available on the internet, a new source of information open to the public.
The Church no longer holds the interest of groups of people more interested in the moral and ethical changes going on all around the world, while the Church, in general seems to be preoccupied with “human sexuality” and women’s role within the threefold ministry of the church.
Consequently, I have been wondering around like a lost soul seeking to make sense of my theological training outside the framework of established religion, because I found the god of religion to small for the changes of attitudes taking place in my mind and the questions people were asking at street level.
What I found was that people in general did not associate the words of Christ with the dogma of religion and the church. What they were interested in was justice; peace and love among other things and cold not see their needs being met within a structure they were beginning to question. Well, I suppose that can create a very long debate in itself and that is not my purpose in this write up.
I have been in Germany for the past six weeks walking the streets meeting ordinary people to ask them about changing consciousness they experience in the daily life. If you want to listen to their views and pass comments; then my second show goes out this Friday Watch this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKdcatTLO80
If you listen to http://www.criticalmassradio.co.uk/ on Friday 8 June from 9 till 11.pm you will hear my interview with Benjamin and Janise, two teenagers from Germersheim on my Change of Consciousness show. ......FRIDAY 8 JUNE 9.00 till 11.00 pm
Rather than demines my faith in the words of Christ, I have discovered by letting go my preconceived ideas and opening my mind to change of consciousness…Jesus’ words do indeed set us free, but at the cost of dying to self and to born again….NOT as new Christians, but as new creation and what that means, each individual soul has to discover for him/her self outside organised religion and that is threatening to Mother church?
I will be interested in your response.
