Hello, People of Purpose!
◊Today’s episode was a challenge for me. I love storytelling and believe it is an art. I pray that you will be able to follow the podcast and take notes as you do. As you hear Ruby and Onyx’s story unfold- does it resonate or sound familiar? More often than not, we can easily spot the mistakes of others but not reflect on our own.
The Lies Anger Told, the Podcast is designed to move us into reflection. To line our behavior up with what we hear from the antagonist and protagonist. We can also start listing the people we may have villainized through our actions. The process is painful as I have had a difficult time owning my failures. We usually don’t want to harm anyone intentionally. I have learned that when communication ends, that is where Anger picks up and inserts wild conspiracy theories and distorts the truth.
The story of Ruby and Onyx is an original one-act play written by me.
They share a close familial bond even though they grew up in different households. While their personalities were similar, they both have unique talents and gifts. Ruby was ruled by her emotions and wore her heart on her sleeve. She had high expectations for everyone but none for herself. Humanitarian instincts governed Onyx, which led to wanting to please everyone. You may have thought Onyx was the “good guy” in this play, but if you dive deeper, you will discover his errors as well.
As you listen to The Lies Anger Told, the Podcast, I pray you will journal and keep your Bible close. As you react, think about what you are feeling and use the Bible concordance to look up that specific emotion. What does the Bible say about how you’re responding?
Scriptures in this episode:
James 1:20, Ephesians 4:14-16
- Have you identified any similarities to the characters?
- Do you think Ruby’s anger was justified?
- How do you handle disappointment?
