    Giving Your Gifts with Everett Satoru

    Everett Satoru is a filmmaker, producer, creative director, facilitator & branding specialist who helps people find & express their true Self & artistry to the world


    After attending film school in LA & leading big projects for major production companies in Hollywood, a series of health issues led him to a burnout, retreating to the mountains & going inward.


    From this place of renewed Self, he leaned into the pull of intuition & stepped fully into the identity of artist, collaborator & thought leader in the film & creative space - becoming renowned for his artistic vision & being sought out for his individual gifts instead of simply chasing the next paycheck.


    This has led to him travelling extensively with his creative work, working with multiple high profile clients and founding his company Dharma Branding which uses powerful frameworks & facilitation to help others find & express their true voice & gifts with the world

    In this podcast they  explore:

    • How Ev’s leading on film sets translated into him working as a facilitator in the personal development space

    • The importance of getting to know yourself deeply before helping others

    • The dance between doing creative work to make money VS as an authentic expression of your unique artistry 

    • How do you know if you have a life purpose? What does it feel like?

    • Once you find your purpose, what do you do with it? aka “The Second Mountain”

    • How looking at our life as a movie can empower us on a very deep level

    Jesus carries us accross the line

    Jesus carries us accross the line
    1. Heb 11:29-12:2
    • Sermon Jesus Carries us across the line
      1. The Story of Derek Redman

    See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V93-mOwkw3I

    Derek Redman was a contender to win a medal in the 400m sprint at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992. He had easily made the semi-finals winning both his heats, but in that semi-final https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_JUKNfYNpc150 metres from the end, his hamstring tore. The Olympic creed is a quotation from the founder of the modern Olympics. It says “The important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning but taking part, just as in life, what counts is not the victory but the struggle.”   In an act which embodies the Olympic creed, Redman after collapsing on the track, struggled to his feet and began to limp along the track toward the finish line. But Redman did not finish the race alone. Surrounding him in the stadium a great crowd cheered him on toward the finish line. As he limped along a man came down from the crowd, pushed officials and security people aside and came to Redman’s assistance. The man was Redman’s father. He said to his son “Son you don’t have to do this.” Redman replied “Dad, yes I do”.  "Well, then," said his father, "we're going to finish this together."

                His father supported Redman like a crutch and the two of them hobbled across the line as the crowd cheered them on and wept with them. He wasn’t a medal winner but he had kept his eyes on the finish and had run to the end.

    [Source of this story and inspiration for this sermon was initially https://sermons4kids.com/run-the-race.htm but it has been supplemented by material found through Google searches.]

    1. Sermon

                This story of Redman and his dad is a wonderful illustration of Who Jesus is, the Christian life, and also a great illustration of today’s Hebrew’s reading.  Jesus is described as the Pioneer and perfecter of our faith. Other translations describe him as the one who makes our faith complete.

                Derek Redmond the runner you just saw was running toward a goal. He of course wanted to win, but he also wanted to finish. As today’s reading put it he wanted to run the race with perseverance.  Redmond breaks down continues by himself to hop, but it does not seem he can finish. Then his Fater joins him and he goes with him and indeed in a sense carries us accross the line.

                This is a picture of what God has done for us in Jesus. God became one with us, came down from the stands in order that we might be carried across the line of life. When we could not go on God joined with us and carried us through life, sin and death and through into new life.

                I believe we need God from beyond us. Some Theologians like Paul Tillich argue that the idea that God comes from beyond us is difficult for modern people to believe. Instead they argue that God is not beyond God is within, God is the foundation, or the core of being, of our existence. The Christian life is therefore about getting in touch with God within us and within others and creation. Seeing God at work in our relationships with others.

                The person in history who shows this best is Jesus. Through his relationship with others Jesus showed us what it truly means not only to love God and our neighbour with the whole of our being but what it means to love our neighbour and even our enemies. He was so committed to this love of God and others that it led him to an early death nailed to a Roman Cross. Through his example and teaching we can know what it is to live the perfect life.

                In some ways there is nothing controversial about this. Indeed I think it is part of what today’s reading from Hebrews is saying when it says. “lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus ... who ... endured the cross”.

                When Redmond ran his race that was the kind of thing he was doing. He was running toward a goal he had been striving for the whole of his life. He had dedicated every part of his life to it. He was calling on the Olympic spirit, and remembering all those great Olympic athletes who had gone before him. Perhaps he had a great figure like Daley Thompson in mind as he ran. When he broke down his aim was still to finish.

                As Christians of virtually every kind we believe that God is with and that the whole creation was made by God and even though the world works by natural processes it is sustained by him. Creation’s life and source comes from God. This presence of God within us and in creation is what we traditionally call the Holy Spirit. It is what Tillich called “the ground of our being.” In some ways this is a really persuasive argument - the idea that God could come from outside and interfere in the natural course of events does not fit well with a view of the world which says that everything must have a clearly identifiable cause and effect.

                Now at this point I could launch into a philosophical argument about how it is I believe that God not only comes to us from within but from outside and that God and creation are quite different things but I’m not going to do that. Instead I’m going to talk about three problems and  the experience of God.

                Derek Redmond was a great athlete, able to run the race and perhaps even win. He had qualified for the race. He was in a centre lane. Before he broke down he was in a great position. The first problem is that you and I are not Derek Redmond we could not even make an Olympic heat let alone a final.  More importantly you and I are not Jesus we fall far short of his example.

                The second problem is that we and the world in which we live is limited. We can not always reach the goal. Sometimes natural disasters may stop us. Other people get our way sometimes with intent or sometimes by accident they trip us up. We all die and our deaths may well happen before we have reached our goal. Like Moses or Joseph or Miriam we do not reach the promised land. As part of the great crowd of witnesses they did not ereceive “what had been promised”.  Or like Derek Redmond we just break down before the end and all our hard work seems to have come to nothing.

                Thirdly we are sinners. We do not obey God’s commands, we can not always fix our eyes on Jesus. We get distracted and lave the race or cross the line and get disqualified. Who has ever loved God with all our heart with all our mind, with all our strength and with all our soul? Who has always loved their neighbour as themselves? Who has met the even higher standard of the Sermon n the mount or John’s gospel to always thurn the other cheek, love our enemies, pray for thise who persecute us, and love our fellow Christians as Christ loved and love us?

                No sometimes we are struck by the sin that clings so closely, the grief we feel over some loss, our health causing us to break down, the betrayal of a friend or family member, some natural disaster, and we collapse on the track. If like Redmond we are strong and determined even though we may come last we may be able to rouse ourselves and limp to the finish, but often we can not finish and indeed if the aim is the Kingdom of God, the new creation, where God’s will, will be done and earth becomes as heaven, and heaven and earth combine, then I believe that none of us will ever finish.

                How then can we go on? Surely we are lost. Unless there is help from beyond, from outside but also with us along side us we will never get to the promised end.

                Just at that point when we have collapsed on the track or when we are limping toward a line we will never get to, help arrives. For Redmond it was his Father come down from the stand and onto the track to carry him over the line. For us in the race of life, in the Christian journey, I believe it is Jesus, for he is I believe not only the example toward which we run, he is as Hebrews 12 says the pioneer and most crucially the perfecter of our faith.

                For most Christians and before that for the Jewish people this has been our experience. All of us, though some more than others have been in that dark place  in the race of life that Redmond was in, in an Olympic semi-final and yet at the time or looking back, we have seen that God has carried us through. Perhaps it is the forgiveness of sin, perhaps the strength to overcome some addiction, perhaps it has been a terrible grief, the loss of career, a house, a child, a husband or wife, perhaps it has been a sickness or depression. Perhaps it has been facing your own oncoming death. Somehow the strength, or forgiveness or the healing or the promise or the peace and acceptance comes, slowly or quickly and not from ourselves, but from God, and we are carried over the line going on with and even finishing the race.

                This has been the experience of that great cloud of witnesses, that somehow God who seems far away, in Jesus and by the Spirit comes near. God joins us on the track and carries us to the finish line. Without him we are lost but with him we go on, and claim the prize.

                “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:1–2, NRSV) Amen

    A Work in Progress

    A Work in Progress

    When you think of the word work, what comes to mind? For most of us, it is the time and effort required to accomplish a goal. The energy required to move an object over a distance. The physical exertion, unwanted but endured, to obtain reward.

    Cast in this light, work becomes something to avoid. Escape. Evade. True happiness, we begin to believe, comes only when work is absent and leisure is present. Paradise and work become mutually exclusive.

    And yet, if we go back to the beginning of time, the divine God of the Universe engaged in work to create the earth. To create mankind. To create the Garden of Eden - paradise itself. And he placed man in the garden to work it - to continue the divine act of creation by cultivating the garden to produce fruit.

    God rested on the seventh day from his work of creating paradise. He rested because his work was good. Complete. Perfect.

    One thing was missing, though. Adam was alone, and God said, "It is not good for man to be alone." So he caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep - to rest from his work - while God continued to work one more time in creating Eve. Only then was paradise complete.

    Adam and Eve then began life in paradise with the work of tending the garden. They worked during the day, and they walked with their creator in the cool of the evening.

    Work and paradise coexisted in harmony. Work, it seems, is divine.

    Until that fateful day when the serpent interrupted their work. When he slithered around the trunk of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and convinced Adam and Eve that they should ignore God's warning and sample its fruit for themselves.

    And in that moment, when Adam and Eve stopped working the garden to entertain the idea that they knew better than God and could take action contrary to his desires and direction, paradise was lost. 

    And so we arrive at today, where we live under the shadow of the serpent coiled around the trunk of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, gloating over us as we work under the curse of thorns and sweat and toil.

    And yet, where there is a shadow, there is light. The divine God of creation is not done with his work. He is at it again. He is creating. He is re-creating. He is restoring paradise.

    How, you ask? Let's find out.

    Creating Content that will Connect You to Your Ideal Audience

    Creating Content that will Connect You to Your Ideal Audience

    Content creation is something that you might hear a lot about because every online marketing or business podcast is talking about this in some way, but as an artist, even one who has been studying marketing and business for the last decade, it is actually really challenging to translate all of the marketing stuff to the art world. 

    Particularly because I think the majority of artists don’t realize that - actually, you ARE a business, you ARE a start up all on your own, you ARE a brand.

    Almost everything is different about the way that business now a days is run online and the way that we are building our tribes and audiences now is honestly a totally different animal then it was ten years ago. 

    I actually believe that being an artist right now, is the best time to be an artist in all of time and history because we DON’T have to have the middle man, the label, the publisher, the manager, the curator, ….because everything is online, we get to have direct contact with our audiences and build those relationships organically.

    When you commit to creating quality, value-driven content designed specifically to improve the lives of your audience, you’re committing to creating continued growth, a loyal fanbase, and eventually a sustainable business foundation for your art to build on. 

    And you may be asking yourself, as a musician, how am I supposed to create value for someone else when ...people aren’t even buying music anymore?! It feels like what I have to give isn’t even valuable to people…

    Friend, if you can relate to that feeling in any way, this episode is for you. Regardless of what kind of art you are creating, if you are an opera singer or actor that is recently finding yourself out of a job because of Covid, now is the time to build your brand, build your online tribe, and realize your value.

    'HERE COMES THE SUN (DOO-DUN-DOO-DOO)' - A sermon by Mariela Pérez-Simons (Contemporary Service)
    The sermon was delivered on Sunday, January 26, 2020, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Mariela Pérez-Simons, Intern Minister. DESCRIPTION Throughout history, human beings have felt a sacred kinship to the sun—being the bestower of life and light. For instance, sun-worshipers such as the priests of the Incas used to blow kisses to the rising sun during religious ceremonies. Join our ministerial intern, Mariela Pérez-Simons, on this special SUNday as she shares new reasons to have reverence for the sun. One specific reason to love the sun is proper sun exposure can boost our nervous and immune systems! We will also get a boost from the uplifting music of The Beatles. Sing with us, “Here Comes the Sun (doo-dun doo doo.)"

    'THE UNIVERSE IS CORRECTING ITSELF!' - A sermon by Carlton D. Pearson (Contemporary Service)
    The sermon was delivered on Sunday, January 19, 2020, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister. DESCRIPTION It is a main, and sometimes impossible, challenge to change what someone else created, we can only manage it as responsibly as we can. However we can change and/or save what we have created using our own innate abilities to imagine and re-imagine it creatively. We save creation by saving ourselves and save ourselves by saving creation. We must do what we can and the universe (God) will do what we can't!

    'BLACK POWER, WHITE BACKLASH' - A message by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar (Humanist Service)

    'BLACK POWER, WHITE BACKLASH' - A message by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar (Humanist Service)
    The message was delivered on Sunday, January 19, 2020, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister, at the Humanist Service. DESCRIPTION THROWBACK SERMON SUNDAY 
Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Throwback from Rev. Dr. John Wolf, 1966 In 1966, a young Dr. John B. Wolf spoke to All Souls in Tulsa about Black Power in no uncertain terms. A year earlier Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had spoken to the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly in a message titled “Don’t Sleep Through the Revolution.” These were some of the most divisive and crucial times of the Civil Rights movement that put non-violence to the test. It is hard to imagine any other white preacher in Tulsa saying what Dr. Wolf said that day. Come here his words and my commentary that make them even more relevant for our times today. Join us on MLK Sunday to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, in music and words.  SUBSCRIBE TO AUDIO PODCAST: SUBSCRIBE TO OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL: GIVE A DONATION TO HELP US SPREAD THIS LOVE BEYOND BELIEF: or text LOVEBB to 73256 LET'S CONNECT: Facebook: Twitter: All Souls Church Website:
