FAMILY. The Barometer of Our Culture
March 10, 2015
Hosted by Terry Canady and Thom Schumacher
Few would disagree with the fact that a strong family is vital to the health of our culture, society and our future. Where the family is strong, where healthy, positive values are taught, upheld, practiced and shared, there is a ripple effect that informs the community environment - from neighborhoods to nations – in many wonderful, important ways. Where the family is fragmented, on the other hand, where moral values are undefined, eroded, confused or absent, there is a negative ripple effect that, left unchecked, has the power to bring down even the strongest culture…from within. It’s not difficult to realize, then, that where honesty, integrity, accountability, compassion, kindness, recognition of our true inner divinity and a reverence for life are owned and honored, everyone benefits. It all begins with the family, and the pulse that sustains the life of the family is the heartbeat of God. And it is through the heart of family that all of the facets of God are fully revealed

Terry Canady and Thom Schumacher
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.
