Don’t Blame God
June 12, 2012
Hosted by Terry Canady and Thom Schumacher
Have you forgiven God? Many people unknowingly carry enmity toward God in their hearts. It’s probably true for all of us. At one time or another, we cursed God for some sense of injustice we felt was God’s fault, not ours. A child dies. A loved one is taken from us. A relationship spins out of control. Finances crash and burn. We are attacked, abused, unfairly treated, unjustly accused. At times like these, we might feel that God “could have done something about it.” Truth is, our experiences are most often a direct result of our karma. And karma, good and bad, is ours by virtue of our free will choice. So, when looking for blame for our woes and misfortunes, start by looking in the mirror. God may be a tempting target, but He is not to blame. He is never angry or vindictive or vengeful. His will is only love and always good. And we can either accept His will or impose our own. The choice is always ours. Join us this Tuesday as we explore forgiving God…and ourselves.

Terry Canady, singer/songwriter, was raised in Des Moines, Iowa, and his performing and recording career has spanned nearly five decades. Recording a #1 hit record, “Mama Bear,” in Nashville, Tennessee in the early 1970s was the highlight of his career and eventually led to the creation of his own record and publishing company, Saint Adrian, through which he has produced a number of records and albums, most recently a patriotic CD titled “Give Me Liberty.” He continues to accept narration, commercial and voice-over work from his home in the beautiful Paradise Valley, just a few miles north of Yellowstone National Park.
Thom Schumacher is a copywriter, ex-seminarian, singer, percussionist, talker, plays a mean penny whistle, lyricist, RE broker and, most importantly, a student of the ascended masters. He has been gifted with an exceptional family, survived 3 marathons, navigated some very potent astrology (double Pisces!) and continuously juggles a myriad of creative challenges, not the least of which is hosting The OPEN DOOR. The threads that run through the crazy quilt of his life are love of God, Life, wife, family and gratitude for all the opportunities along the way to learn and grow.
